Her face is pretty old It looks like two eggs, fried and though this may sound cold she's got Steve Buscimi Eyes She'll turn those glass-balls on you and you'll have to look twice they're bulging out right at you she's got Steve Buscimi Eyes She looks mellow, cheeks are sallow, like that Reservoir Dogs fellow looks like E.T. when she blinks she looks like meatballs in linguini All her boyfriends say she looks high she's got Steve Buscimi Eyes She'll let you take her home she won't put up a fight but when she takes her shades off she's got Steve Buscimi Eyes And her eyelids look like hemorrhoids Yes, she needs to check her thyroid Looks atrocious and she knows just what it takes to make us nauseous All the doctors think she will die she's got Steve Buscimi Eyes

This was one of the original 'Needle in the Red' episodes done in the early 'aughts while at KFJC. It has long been in 'un-released' status until now. Contains various rants by Alexander T. Newport and some pre-mixing by Don Joyce of Negativland. Post-produced by NCN.

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.
