Vampire disco in Questions

I woke up at 3:30am Sunday morning and decided I should try to create an electronic song that was upbeat and kind of positive and beautiful.

I failed miserably.

I definitely made the most gothic song I’ve ever made in my entire life.
Vampire disco

It’s called “Masks” and it’s kind of my…pandemic anthem.

I also got drunk yesterday for the first time in forever.
I hate getting drunk.
I was recording this song and drinking whiskey at like 4am because making songs is more fun when you’re drinking and then…I just kind of forgot to eat.

So I ended up posting a bunch of dumb shit on Facebook.
Basically telling everyone to grow up
Stop posting memes to an audience of people who agree with you and actually do something about the things you’re upset about instead of this mutual masturbation nonsense that happens on Facebook…which is an app created and controlled by a group of people who don’t give a flying fuck about you at all and they’re collecting your data to use against you.

Like, what the actual fuck?

So I deleted all of those posts…not before a bunch of people already saw them though.
And then I started ranting to friends about the upcoming civil war.

It was just an ugly scene.

This is why I hate getting drunk.

Today I haven’t worked hardly at all…I just can’t. I don’t feel good at all.

But this song is awesome, and probably worth it.


I’m going to go lay down or something.

I like it! Suits my mood these days, too.

Hell yeah! Thanks for listening.

We have all our stuff up on Spotify and Apple music too if you want to go further down the gothic emo rabbithole, haha

Kind of a joke to me is a T shirt I once saw: "Instant Asshole. Just Add Alcohol". Which is what I did a lot of long ago. Ruined some relationships and added more ruin with my stupid justifications and apologies. I hope you are feeling better now. I like to think of "Failure" as "PRACTICE" now. As long as it doesn't kill, cripple or drive you insane. Fuck It, Drive On. As for FB, true friends will laugh shit off and forgive you. Sincerely, reformed asshole. (Damn I hope so ;-) )

Man, I wish we could go smoke a bong and have a chat. I think I'd like hanging out with you.

I am just a simple old former factory rat. Cannot use any drugs due to being on prozac and blood thinners. It is a bizarre joke to me. Thanks. And thanks for the links will check it out. Yeah I am ok for one of them Boomers.

I listened to your song. Surprisingly good. You ARE a truly talented man! It's all practice. You get better. Don't tear yourself down. Like so much writing I did was shit fertilized later stuff ;-)

Do you have Spotify or Apple music? Or shit, the album is even on Youtube.

Check out "DSM-5: Or Vices and Devices" by Dane and the Death Machine.

We just released it in late May. I think you might enjoy it.

Telepathy and Awkward Silences is my favorite.

Or I Am The Escape know what, fuck it, let me link you.

I got around to listening to your music. Truly a talented man! I have about 0 musical talent but a love of much. The last passion I had was opera. I think it the highest form of music due to the complexity of it. I do believe you are a very creatively talented person.

The first minute and half I found a bit jarring, but from 1:31 onwards I thoroughly enjoyed it. It reminds me of classic darkwave from the early to mid nineties, the compilation tapes I used to buy at Hot Topic back in 1994-97 sounded a bit like this. Good stuff.

As far as actually doing anything, at this point I think only violence, or a record voter turn out for many years in a row, would change anything. Protests are an annoyance to the people in power at best.

Civil war is definitely a possibility. Canada should be looking to beef up its border security if it isn't already doing so.

Thank you so much! I am definitely going for that dark wave vibe. You might like the track Moonrocks. They're all up on Soundcloud right now under the name "Dane and the Death Machine". I think there might be two accounts that we've created with that same name, so it's on whichever one is the Staging area. The songs are supposed to be private but I've been lacking on that.

All my social media died a protracted death. In searing pain. And it was justified. The amount of energy invested in social media by the human race could have powered us to the stars.

I just quite FB for the second time. I went a few years without it and my life was dramatically improved, so I'm going back to that. I spent about a month on FB and decided it was ruining my life at an exponential rate.

I took a big break from Instagram and this site too.
