Shadowville Speedway

In a taxi watching a sporting house
Beside a Linwood vacant lot
Silverdollar moon portspotting
Constellation like a sailor's knot.
The sky was black, ink and glitter in the night
Train whine saxophone out beyond the light.
I'm in love with a ghost blue turns to grey
Put a pyramid on my head to take my pain away.

Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Brown Reculse magic drifting around the shed
Someone has it in for me I must not lose my head
Moving with the speedo life several with me left behind
Burned too many bridges defragmented my time.
Somewhere in time I've seen all this before
In a magazine or a dream of a distant war.

Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Manifested destiny a manifesto and a part
All the actors still agree that ever had a heart.
Hazel knew the karma, she kept it in a bottle
Black tooth mojo marked index cards
Bundles over the side of Dillingham Bridge
Splashing as ripples reflect from the stars.

Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Don't look back, don't admit defeat.

Something in the water seems to have made most folks here Village Idiots... with pretentions of intelligence. Dangerous combination.

Far from the Valley of Idiots, I'm getting some good vibes from the Global Village, here's a jazzman who digs the Shadowville Mythos:

"Good tex-mex/spaghetti western mood. I'm visualizing Henry Fonda facing Jack Kerouac, about to fight a duel. Then Bob Dylan comes in, rolls up a joint made of some Native herbal mix, and all three end up driving to Malibu on Elvis' pink Cadillac. And then I created my own RN account..." -Regis V. Gronoff

You can visit any message board on Topix and immediately know the losers by seeing who answers their own posts on their own threads.

Just a tidbit of wisdom from just outside Indian Springs State Park in beautiful Butts county Georgia.

Well thanks for giving your expert opinion on Topix.com , Everett... I got this critique on "Shadowville Speedway" from elsewhere and it was too interesting to let it pass.

Unlike yours, which is next to worthless to me as a writer.

Come on over to Flovilla and ask around for Everett Williams and you'll get pointed my way and I show you just how anonymous I am son.
You are rude and disrespectful, plus you all puffed up on yourself like a peacock yet you ain't got no peacock feathers, you just a common crow, cawing around topix starting stuff with folks who see things differently.
I see people like you my whole life, they spend more time trying to show everyone that they are for real and never spend no time achieving anything. That makes you a loser son.

Yeah, I'm old and you're a shallow kid.

Check back when you grow up, little man.

Here's another of my favorite Dockery-Conley tunes:

&li st=PL4C8D8F9E92A93EB3

Truck Stop Woman

Pulled into Auburn, Alabama,
it was raining of course.
All I seemed to contemplate besides the weather
what a shame to be divorced.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
then she's back out of sight.

Rode past Buena Vista,
there was sand in the sky.
Plastic Jesus started trembling
then I seen her with my eyes.
Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll light and warm my dreams tonight

Fifteen dollars worth of true love
man that girl was out of sight.
Something about her was familiar
there was smoke in her eyes.

Back outside of Phenix City,
pimps and their ilk all around.
Then it turned negative
when I seen her bouncing around.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
then she's back out of sight.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen dollars worth of true love
man that girl was out of sight.
She's right back out of sight.

You should let Everett manage you
No, I don't have a manager or PR folks, I'm a DYI person.

Exactly... the term is "Do It Yourself", and was created by musicians, artists and poets who don't have the big $$$ of corporate backing and big shot managers and promoters.

Here's more on DIY culture:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_it_yourself

Do it yourself (DIY) is building, modifying, or repairing something without the aid of experts or professionals. The popular culture phrase "do it yourself" had come into common usage (in standard English) by the 1950s, in reference to the emergence of a trend of people undertaking home improvement and various other small craft and construction projects as both a creative-recreational and cost-saving activity.

Subsequently, the term DIY has taken on a broader meaning that covers a wide range of skill sets. DIY is associated with the international alternative rock, punk rock, and indie rock music scenes; indymedia networks, pirate radio stations, and the zine community. In this context, DIY is related to the Arts and Crafts movement, in that it offers an alternative to modern consumer culture's emphasis on relying on others to satisfy needs. The abbreviation DIY is also widely used in the military as a way to teach commanders (hence how from this YouTube videoclip) or other types of units to take responsibility, so that they'd be able to do things themselves just as a preparation for their own future.
Subculture

Main article: DIY ethic

The terms "DIY" and "do-it-yourself" are also used to describe:

Self-publishing books, zines, and alternative comics

Bands or solo artists releasing their music on self-funded record labels

Trading of mixtapes as part of cassette culture
Home made stuffs based on the principles of "Recycle, Reuse & Reduce" (the 3R's). A common term in many Environmental movements encouraging people to reuse old, used objects found in their homes and to recycle simple materials like paper.[6]

Crafts such as knitting, sewing, handmade jewelry, ceramics[7]

Designing business cards, invitations and so on

Creating punk or indie musical merchandise through the use of recycling thrift store or discarded materials, usually decorated with art applied by silk screen.[8]

Independent game development and game modding

Contemporary roller derby

Building musical electronic circuits such as the Atari Punk

Console and create circuit bending noise machines from old children toys.

Modifying ("mod'ing") common products to allow extended or unintended uses, commonly referred to by the internet term, "life-hacking". Related to jury-rigging i.e. sloppy/ unikely mods
DIY science: using open-source hardware to make scientific equipment to conduct citizen science or simply low-cost traditional science [9] DIY bio

DIY as a subculture could be said to have begun with the punk movement of the 1970s.[10] Instead of traditional means of bands reaching their audiences through large music labels, bands began recording, manufacturing albums and merchandise, booking their own tours, and creating opportunities for smaller bands to get wider recognition and gain cult status through repetitive low-cost DIY touring. The burgeoning zine movement took up coverage of and promotion of the underground punk scenes, and significantly altered the way fans interacted with musicians. Zines quickly branched off from being hand-made music magazines to become more personal; they quickly became one of the youth culture's gateways to DIY culture. This led to tutorial zines showing others how to make their own shirts, posters, zines, books, food, etc.

HTH & HAND.
