about

This program / show / mix was inspired by the 'Occupy Wall Street' protests in lower Manhattan in the Fall of 2011. It originally was webcast on 10/09/2011, but some modifications have been made since the original webcast.

This is a vibrant, driven mix which is a sister-program to 'Uprisings' which we made in the Spring of 2011. 3 hour mix, tracked. Includes a 1 hour radio edit version of the mix as well which was heard on "Bob"'s Slacktime Funhouse on WREK Atlanta.

This program is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work, artistic in nature. Subsequently, more derivative tracks are not available separately.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited and/or fragmented / transformed / re-contextualized, and/or remixed from its original form, and is used fairly as a cultural reference in the subtext, and artistic narrative, of this unique 'syntopical' arrangement.

Any proceeds from this work are considered donations to express appreciation for, and to help support, the expenses of the project this program is a part of, and the creative work behind it, and is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your support.

Track Name: The World You Left Behind [w/Vince Ewing]
(original lyrics by Vince Ewing) - These lyrics below do not include the samples used in the song, but are the words Vince sings:

All the wasted youth
and all the unwise men
couldn't put our city
back together again

And the parents don't care
and the teachers don't care
turns these busy streets
into the middle of nowhere

and the world that you left behind
is a burning ball of shit
and so your kids are sitting on their hands
wondering what to do with it

It's so hard to find a silver lining
To hold your head high
when there ain't nobody smiling
and I can't walk
down these streets anymore
and I've worn out my welcome
but I don't know what for

Are the times coming to an end
or am I just insane?

Why does the world seem crazier every day?
Why does the world seem crazier every day?

We lost ourselves in greed
and there ain't no road back home
misery has her company
yet the artist sleeps alone
and the fields have flooded over
and paradise is burnin'
and we can't ourselves
with all the things that we aren't learning

And are the times coming to and end
or am I just insane?

Why does the world seem crazier every day?
Why does the world seem crazier every day?

We've built our machines
and then they ate our dinner
We've turned clowns into kings
the biggest crown a winner

Now the kids can't hardly read
or even write a letter
I guess the good life on its own
can't teach us to be better

And are the times coming to an end
or am I just insane?

Why does the world seem crazier every day?
Why does the world seem crazier every day?
Why does the world seem crazier every day?
