Unlovable Decade is a collection of tunes that present the best and worst of California. The tone is influenced by people who have captured the essence of what makes this place amazing and terrifying. In addition, Poor Sailor is a homage to the gut punching comic by Sammy Harkham.

The ceiling stares Los Angeles, California

The position demands hitting enter then delete millions of times, pounding on strange keyboards, slapping typos on multiple buzzing monitors while editing, questioning and searching for characters to tell the story of the beginning and ultimately the end. ... more

Track Name: Syd Mead Built My Hotrod
Deckard's a man
He's no replicant
It's in his eyes
There's so soft and warm
He'll do the things you always ask him to
A country trip in the afternoon

You failed the Voight-Kompff
The shoulder of Orion

Deckard's no man
He's a replicant
It's in the future
Retrofitted past
Implications of technology
A broken thing that doesn't dream

Track Name: Poor Sailor
The arm is dead just like Jacob
Fresh disasters are advancing
You building a roof like there is no tomorrow
The blood by slow degrees
The monkees and the sorrowful noise

Easy to know what is wrong
Something is calling me to leave it all behind
Difficult to figure out what is right
Easy and Difficult

"I will be back soon" said the Poor Sailor

The arm is dead just like Rachel
She knew the moon was too far it didn't matter that if Thomas saw it too
The arm is dead we need a coffin
The corpse was full of salt
The children pulled the salt from his nails
Track Name: Didion Revision Hour
The land is still here
It remains another world
Over and over a need for exploring
Light a cigarette and pose in front of a corvette
We're building a framework
A temporary treatment for success

This once was the most wonderful place on Earth
Room after room of unreliable time machines
Find a generation's worth in the distance is a loaded skyline
Mile after mile on the freeway seeing no one talking to no one
Abandoned 405

I feel so good when the hills are burning
I feel so good when the houses are falling
I feel so good when the ocean is boiling
I fee so good wen the Earth is moving

If we all die at the same time then we'll all go somewhere else together.
Track Name: Singularity
The clues are in the movies
The future is filled with guts and gore
My daughter is dating a robot
The son of a cyborg millionaire
On the surface the tine heap is a funny dude
Observational humor and ironic cool
He's a stud he'll be a star
Every circuit lighting off
Glowing eyes are watching in the dark

Astro turf no need for atom bombs
Pretty skies above your crying mom
Plate techtonics
Neutron glare
Mother nature doesn't really care.
