My Take On The State Of T.V. The Planet & Some Of The Idiots That Are On It But Most Of All My Hate For Reality Shows.
I Woke Up At 5 a.m. With The Entire Lyric In My Head & By The End Of A Rainy Monday Morning Had This Song.
All Done In The Kitchen On My MacBook Between Loaddsa Black Coffee & Bacon Sandwiches!

(Unless you have HD switch it off on the video for smother running)

Direct and to the point AV! You pretty well sum it up why I hardly ever watch the TV. (I'm in denial maybe?) Your sharp synth caught my attention right off, then I read your lyrics.....one of my favorites is "Famous for 15 minutes and forgotten in 1 !" Love it! I also watched your video(s). This song was even better with the sound effects you added to the video. Nice job.
