Piemerica's Advice Oven- That Eggy.. Am I Right?, Unmarketable Art, Animal Thoughts

That Eggy.. Am I Right?
What is your opinion on animal rights? -Nishant Singh

Because they walk on all fours animals have two rights.. but they are in the same direction. Even though we humans have right legs we usually determine our rights & lefts by our hands. Animals don't have hands but they do fit in pans. Like you can totally stereo mix a roar. Some animals have hands yet they don't wear hand me downs because they wear fur because for them fur isn't murder, fur is life. Peaches wanted to stop being eaten by monkies so they became fuzzy. TVs got fuzzy for this too except they wanted to stop being eaten by people. During the depression, before TVs, people ate TVs. Back then TV sat down for Tree-based Vision-telly. The telly was the trolley for your mouth like a telephone but backwards so guys with beards could use them too without them getting stuck in their beards.

Some animals spin around & chase their tails but they spin to the left 50% of 100% of the time. I'm not one to poke fingers because they are not an easy target. Animals did not invent easy targets but they did be them sometime, oops! The shopping mall was named after the mall rat named Eggy because he was born in a universe that which is also ours so we could know about him. He had his choice of this universe or any of the OTHER non-existent universes. Seeing that existing was the preferred method to knock about he chose to never exist thus leaving animals without rights except on their right side. So anytime you are taking a skunk to a dumpster to freshen up the smell & let him live there with the wombat you can thank Eggy the rat that never existed except to choose whether or not to exist.

How do screenwriters survive? -Anne W Zahra

My guess is that they use tape. You can't paint a screen, they shred crans. You might could recolor silver ones with a sharpie but the black ones you cannot use sharpies on. When the rains come the tape would come off. I don't know of any screens that people have things written on so they must not make much money if any. They probably pay people to let them deface their screens. Some people get confused & have them write on their monitors & tvs. People can live without money but that is obvious because we use debit cards now. Guy's used to put money on their hands & foreheads. Now we just get caps to wear with expensive logos on them. So draw a logo on a screen & you gotta pay up. Paying up is so much fun. Throwing money into the air (non-coins) is a great feeling & catching it is even better. Refs who do coin tosses just don't know what they're missing on the next level.

Blind writers are better than screenwriters because the blinds are on the inside so they don't get wet. That first rain drop on your shoulder helps you fight justice because crime is so under wool come February.

^- & that's how you write a screen kids!

Animal Thoughts
Why can't animals think like humans? -Hrishikesh Amravatkar

They can but they think things like this:
What does the future hold? I don't know but I'd check its pockets just to be safe! I'm not one to complain because I've spent a lot of time being happy & that is why. I've seen all the Star Wars movies. It was confusing. I should have watched them one at a time. Alex had a pen & so did Al's ex because they had two pens & split them equally in the divorce. She called herself my owner, which is great because when people own each other they are slaves but when they own us animals we are treated like the Alibaba era kings. I was under the colors.. it was a cram! My brain mysfelled cran. They wear shirts, that's how they became pirates! No one is a pirate without a shirt unless they are a dreamy pirate & dreams aren't real! I love playing in the yard but this squirrel keeps putting shaving cream in a rusty can. I'd ask him what its all about but I don't speak lerrilliusqa. I was making toast in a barn & then they asked me to leave. How do you ask rabbits to make toast? You ask them, "lend me your ears" then they throw corn at you because it is a corn barn, a carn barn, a corn born. Top that giraffe!

Traded Society for Technology

Traded Society for Technology is my 26th album, released May 19, 2008. Around the time of the release of this album I went through my creative works & looked for words/phrases that would make good song titles. In 2004 I had been doing this mostly after I had recorded the songs. In 2007-2008 I picked the song titles placed them into releases that I would make artwork for then I would record them & arrange the track order when the albums were done.

Traded Society for Technology was originally set to be the follow up to Sound Without Effect. Sound Without Effect took its song titles from the Freezer Freezer Problem Artbook which was a spin-off to the Equal Non-Equal Neutral Artbook which is where Traded Society for Technology gets most of its song titles from. Traded Society for Technology was going to have tons of tracks but I ended up splitting the track titles into multiple releases (The Stars Are in the Sky Hollowed Out, Today & The Years Gone Bye, & even 2010's Norvon Mac).

Traded Society for Technology was recorded at the same time as both The Stars Are in the Sky Hollowed Out & Today & The Years Gone Bye. Today & The Years Gone Bye was recorded (but never handed to) the RPM challenge which challenged people to make entire albums in February of only original songs. So Traded, which recording started for in January, was put on hold to make Today & The Years Gone Bye, which became my most acclaimed album. Many songs from The Stars were written/recorded alongside Traded & the songs were placed into the different releases depending on the feel of the album with Traded being more experimental & computerized & The Stars being more instrumental. As of 2013 I'm still doing this. I'm currently writing/recording songs for 4 different albums & placing the songs in each one depending on the feel of the song. Today however I am titling the songs after their recordings rather than going by a large list to fulfill.

Track Look Back
1. Iuff Iick
This song does have one of the actually interesting stories of all my songs. The grumbling digital sounds come from a device implanted in a Garfield shirt I got around 1995-96. It was a shirt that played a huge burp when you pressed the device in the stomach of the shirt. The device however stuck out of the shirt & me being fat, it really stuck out so I think I only wore the shirt once to school. I kept this shirt for over 10 years. I noticed the burping sound was garbled & digital sounding when I pushed the button (possibly due to low battery) so I cut the device out of the shirt before throwing the shirt away. I loved the sound of it so I recorded it for a few minutes pushing or grinding the rubber button with my thumb. The sounds it made are unedited. I made the strings & piano afterwards to spruce it up & make it a full song. To me the song is very soothing. One of the soothiest I've ever done. You want to talk experimental? 3 minutes of a distorted burping from a mid-90s children's novelty t-shirt contrasted with beautiful piano & strings should qualify! I did eventually throw the device away, not seeing a use for it for another song. I had a picture of it on the MARS MySpace calling it a "sampler" as it it were some cool analog nub controlled thing I invented. But it is a sampler though, it samples 1 burp.

The song title was impossible to truly type out. The original artwork gave the idea of it being capital Is or Capital Ts. So the unofficial alternate title is Tuff Tick. Tick as in the bug because they are tuff.

 2. Q
The funny thing about this title is that it is actually taken from the Artbook.

3. Dos?t
4. of d(t)his

5. Ign(orant)ition
Sorta does have a car starting sound/rhythm.


7. Tegnogk
Title appeared in the Artbook on a fake index page. Instead of there being all page numbers symbols appear as "numbers." It says Tegnogk is on page six legged pink spider. So if that fake page was sound this would be it.

8. Baseless Cavern
Close compositionally to songs from 2007 with a little similar tonality but produced up enough to be much better.

9. ehdca
This title doesn't appear in the Artbook but in appears in some concept art for it which is also the comic Forever Fog.

10. Homeless Land

11. )ho[bb[le
I had a list of song titles to choose from while recording songs. This song became )ho[bb[le & it has a hobbliness to it.

12. Traded Society for Technology

13. Answer Kidge Appears in this video because it sounds futurey.

14. Able to camp anvils?/
This was the title of a speech I did for speech/drama 1 in 10th grade. The speech was about the compassionate putting of anvils in Indian reservation like camps. This speech was so stupid & being preceded by even stupider speeches that I was almost kicked out of the class. I never Thought I'd make any of these things into songs & I really need to scatter the songs around the site to link it all together. This title does appear in the Artbook, I'm not sure if the speech title was taken from there or if it was a reference to the speech.

15. Rock drick garden
I used a bells VST instrument that I liked so this became a single the day of the album's release. Laslo PanafleX came up with this phrase "Rock drick garden" December 6, 2000. It appeared in the Equal Non-Equal Neutral Survey in the Artbook as something to respond to. His full writing was "rock drick garden for throwing sharks at fence broom piano leg."

16. Kettle Scrim
Kettle Scrim is a hot burst of tap water.

17. What If!
18. Fogless Sight
Fog appears in song titles of mine quite a bit. The original artwork titled Fogless Sight in the artbook was used for the September 2004 single Reverse Invertion.

19. Text-tile

20. Label + (Hold)
This is also a bells song & was the album's first single, released March 19, 2008.

21. Leasing any lacer

22. Chances no longer exist
This was maybe the second time I had done the, play the same song again with different arrangements thing. The first being the closing track, though this one appears first on the album. I've done this a few times since, most significantly in 2012's A.M. Rang a Song. I'm fine with milking beauty & experience out of a tune. Most pop/rock songs repeat the same exact same music per verse & the exact same per chorus so I do something like that but different with the same full tune but diff instruments playing it.

23. Incompliable

24. come.
This song takes a similar approach to the opening track Iuff Iick but with different instrumentation & noises. The change of the distortions is very subtle. The title is close as in closed rather than close as in near. In the Artbook it appeared that way saying " come." The new title goes with the eeriness of the song.

25. !question of intelliline?
This phrase also came from Laslo PanafleX December 6, 2000. The MARS website says that  the song was "originally composed on a toy touch tone phone." Thankfully I wrote that then because I have no memory of doing it. This is also a repeat the same song with different arrangements track.

Listen to the full album with the original artwork for each song title.

Piemerica's Advice Oven- Things just got unREAL, Risk Watch

Things just got unREAL
Tell me some good games to play? -toby

You could go on "Con Test" the game show where you guess who's been to jail before based on their life experiences. You could try "chase the chaser" if you have no one to play with because all you do is run in a circle.

I played a game once & thanks to jellotin I got better ah spelling food names. Speak & spell may not be a game but it, like most light matter, can be used in a game of catch. Do you catch my drift? Aww, come on, go & get it. Those drifts cost me a lot of money. If you can fit in a tank it probably isn't a gas tank.

Were you a mouthy kid who needed to replace your sass mouth with a higher class mouth? Did they tell you, "Don't talk back" & you took it literally so you ask questions to the outervoid? Wow. Outervoid is the like opposite of internet yet they both describe it perfectly. The most addicting game I ever played was "Taste the White Powder®". But what do I know? I'm so much of a quitter I give up when I'm not even doing anything. I get a lot of things done that way.

Risk Watch
What is trolling? people say troll alert or something.? -Kay

Trolls are homeless people who steal wifi. A troll alert is when cops patrol under bridges looking for homeless people who are using iPads. I like to dress like a homefull man stand under THE bridge & try to spit over it. If you can afford to get a watch, wind it backwards in the wind, kneel with the back of your head touching the ground (or floor or street or carpet or egg shells), & people will call your wristwatch a riskwatch because you will be put on risk of insanity watch. If you are wearing shoes right now you should donate them to a shoeless fighter. If you are wearing boots in 18 seconds from now you shouldn't march in spring because everyone has a bowling ball for lunch except you. You're totally out of the looop, loser. You didn't even know they added an extra o to looop.

Piemerica's Advice Oven- Kiddo(wn), Send Tense

Are you down with the kids? -No One

No but I was back when I was a kid. When I turned 12-13 I outgrew even the tallest kids. I suppose if I bend over or something I could be down with them & I suppose if they are on monkey bars or something I'm the one that is down to them. For the moment however I am sitting down on a 2nd floor & there are no kids here so I suppose I'm not down with them at all. I've only seen 2 story schools in the tvs & on the movie. If there is a bell tower I think it should be a Taco Bell® tower so you could watch lettuce floatingly fall. I try to eat lettuce but only the lettuce I pay for or am given. I'm not a thief, I use my head when it comes to eating heads.

I'd really like to see the body of a lettuce. I have 3 clues what it would look like.
1. It would block light, it would not be transparent. Can transparents have kids naturally?
2. It would look like matter. Matter is those things you can see except light which is energy although it does matter. How can non-matter matter?
3. It would have a head of lettuce on top. We need lettuce scarecrows for Earthday or something. Pumpkins have all the fun when it comes to getting cut open, ripped of their insides & getting cut for people's sick enjoyment. Yeah they have all the fun & people take it from them.

All food is like that. It has fun & we take its fun & turn it into fun, fuel, & that other f word that starts with a g. What makes g a better driver than L? g looks like a gas pump handle except in auGust then it looks like a puppet with no eyes or mouth just the back of a head, a nose, & the top of another head. Kids write using g's so if you type some g's you'll be cool too.


See how cool I am now?

Send Tense
please correct the sentence? -Omear

Would you please correct this sentence?

How many people who have died have you talked to & they responded saying, "This is great!" I can only think of 6 & I've met upwards of 4 people in my lifetime. There are 9 things you should know about me & 3 that you shouldn't. Show of hands, who wants to know the things you shouldn't know about me? Oh you are tragic maniacs.

Here's the 3. things you shouldn't no in know particular order because no one tolde me to tell you this but me.
#4, I learned to count when I was 12.
#12, I was raised in an elevator on a farm. That elevator had a lot of hick ups but it had just as many hick downs too.
#1.6, I am bad at counting. The last time I tried to count will be unexpected because I don't know when I'll die. But you can be sure of this, being sure of things is easier than you think. Well not easier than you thinking but at best it is as easy.
number niNe, there was a flood in my sink so I built a dam & now I feel fullfilled but my sink doesn't.

Piemerica's Advice Oven Returns!- bel bel, Rulered, What do you think? No, REALLY, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

bel bel
A probability question!? -g.march1

A question like that is likely given today's grammatical ineptitude. I, myself, am a grammar rebel. So much sew I refuse to learn the grammar of any language butt english. I hate words so much that I can't even Finnish this sentence... Girl you should have scene what I would have rote. It was going to b ... And what I would have wrote in the seconds sentence oh it was like a... ...back then grammar was pooshed by gramma. Old ladys loose wait so the gram was named after them butt four those future grammas the gram was named bee four them. I don't know what a bel is but I'm what happends when a bel happends twyce. A grammar rebel.

Will technology rule the world? -Adriana

It already has. Latitude & longitude, mountain heights, sea depth, so much of the world has been ruled using technology databases & calculators. Here is where it gets creepy. Doctors measure our babies, their height & weight, & head size too. They use technologies known as scales & measuring tape. If you ask me ruling rules the world. Oh wait.. did you mean that other meaning of the word rule?

What do you think? No, REALLY, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Can despair be a thought? -IloveLouisTomlinsonx

Some think so but they think it cheerfully. They don't even need cheerleaders because they are capable of cheering on their own despair. Why would a mule need a rocket? Because he is trying to keep up with the times, the 1960s times. If I was riding a mule on a cliff I'd be happy if he could rocket me away from the rocks I would otherwise fall on. Do you otherwise have other wise questions? If not suspect you are a an umpire. Umpires are like vampires but with less va va va & more u u u (pronounced as a grunted 'oo').

If this response causes you despair & you aren't saying, "I'm despaired, I'm despaired," aloud like a teleprinter salesman in 1999 then you are thinking despair with thoughts. Thoughts let you say things in your head, feelings let you say things in your heart, hunger lets you say things in your stum, gas lets you say things in & out of your.. butt. If your mouth lives a tongue be thankful because there are some who have no taste. Like is spelled like lick (using letters) so when someone likes something grappy crappy it is like they are tasting it thus getting an acquired taste for crud. That is why baloney means guff. All of these words can mean nonsense because you don't have a sense of what sucks. Some don't like how bologna tastes so they name it (usually O-S-C-A-R) instead of eating it because they know it will be around a while like a pet unless it is eaten by the pet.
