Yeah, if you're looking for some safe pop song, best keep moving along, because this ain't the place for that, old son.

But if you were looking for some groundbreaking musicianship and playing, I happen to have a link on my copy-paste file that I feel gives a vivid feel for what the superb talents of the Columbus-Phenix City music scene have to offer.

Play "Wobble" written by myself and Henry Conley and backed by several of the best the local scene and sound have to offer behind my vocals, which love or hate, anyone alive can feel the synergy the players behind me exhibit:

Dave, have you seen the online poster showing Bush with "We gave this man eight years to get us into this mess..." then a picture of Obama with "So I'm giving this man eight years to get us out of it."?

Kind of the route we must travel, at present, for lack of a better one.

Okay, point taken.

Here's a straight-up old-school Country & Western song you might be able to dig... it's getting some good notices. Give it a spin and lay your honest opinion on me:

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_132...

"Sitting by the porthole, you're on my mind. Hearing the waves crash, storm outside, out of sight, out of time. Sailing through these memories, should have seen the signs. Dragon pulling me back, three ring circus of reason and rhyme. Over you, just me getting over you. Over you, as we see our way through. You been down to the bottom baby. Hey, I've been there too. Once thought those who'd suffered together could see it all the way through. But you gave up trying baby, and I guess I gave up too. None of the King's Mojo or all your charms could hold up this tattered rendezvous. Over you, just me getting over you. Over you, as we see our way through. Sometimes when I had it, I treated it like dirt. Overlooked the finer points of why the whole thing worked. But you know I don't want sympathy and neither of us plan to die. None of us know the answers and we don't even want to hear the questions why. Over you, just me getting over you. Over you, as we see our way through... yeah." -Will Dockery ©2012 (Music with Brian Mallard & Jack Snipe)

That is some awful lyrics, a poet he ain't.
Well uckily for me, an international audience voices the opposite opinion about my lyrics and poetry.

Here's a few examples of those alternate views from your obviously ignorant and narrow minded ones:

"Will Dockery's voice is unique and fantastic to me in a Spacerock context, some ambient type Spacerock is a riff that builds and changes sometime ever so slightly and is hypnotic. Psychedelic/Spacerock is not for everyone, Will always picks up on the flow of the song and slowly changes with us and spews a poetic beat vibe to it. The T.O.T.M.(Theatre Of The Mind) album will be a acquired taste, kinda like an Alien stew with wierd stuff in it and unrecognizable shapes and textures. Or like a Alien child coming out of a human and the suprised looks on the family and medical staff as they realize that this aint no ordinary baby. Basically this album is for the Lava lamp and the Colorwheels."
- Brian Fowler, T.O.T.M.(Theatre Of The Mind}

"…The Shadowville All-Stars and their insane menagerie of pickers, strummers, drummers, bangers, trumpeters, trombonists, chanters, singers, freaks, faux-Indian dancers [...] colorful costumed cacophony of chaos that rolled from the [...] stage out to the performance area and up the hill to the kitchen and on out over the pond before it dissipated into the ether…”-Katy Clyde, ChattyHoochee Mama (Apr 26, 2010)

"In my opinion Will Dockery is easily one of the most authentic American poets around. A real coffeehouse poet who is not scared of mingling some real American elements such as country music into his poetry." -M.H.Benders
- Martijn Benders, Http://www.Kannibaal.nl

"...eclectic, imagery-laden, neo-beatific poems. Chain-smoking, spontaneously gesturing towards make-believe objects and addressing imaginary characters [...] gravel-throated limp, a rolling, bluesy romp in the swamp [...] pool halls, bridges, tragedies, lost love, relationships. "
- Larry Caddell, Columbus Community News (Jul 29, 2006)

Glad to clear up the misrepresentations and your confusions, Chuck, now have a nice day.

Well, Dave, see my post elsewhere, at least Gary Johnson looks like he'll be blocking Romney in Ohio, which is a start.

Columbus Ga did:

4th Annual Riverwalk Event: Entertainment Schedule progress:

Show starts with Jessi Jenix doing the National Anthem, then a couple (?) of her originals. Then the long Shadowville All-Stars set (Will Dockery, Brian Mallard, Rusty Wood, Patricia Suddeth, Jack Snipe, Gary Frankfurth, Eric M. Gunter, Gary Adkins) where we bring Dana Dodd on with band backing her for 1 song, maybe 2 time permitting. Then the center, "musical guests" section with veterans Bobby Walden, Mia Giannini, Mike Matthews, doing (if the time still looks good) 3 songs each (order of appearance TBA) and again, time permitting, the debut appearance in our show of Fly Studd Buddie. Then the long closing set from the Shadowville All-Stars with a cameo spot from Terry Gannon doing 1 of his favorites, backed by the band. Bam- that's it.

Now Patrick Hopkins and Patricia Suddeth will be fine tuning and adjusting this show to the minute, which will include the protions presented by Jeremy Hobbs, all the announcements, awards presentations, and appearances of various speakers, local dignitaries and icons. For newcomers, the code is hang loose, face front and enjoy the freewheeling nature of the day and the always surprising turns of events... gonna be a great show, our third one of hopefully many more to come, and even when the AIDS cure is found we can still do the Event in celebration! Now... "Engage!"

No, from my observations Romney is just a few degrees less sleazy than Richard Nixon.

Gone Too Far

There's a wind from Russia
blowing over Alaska way.
Old man in the big house
won't have it any other way.
He say
"Da da da,
they've gone too far..."
People are worried---
wondering where they'll hide.
Dark forces at work.
illuminating the night.

The ladies dance the Maypole
across the divide.
Banks are a'falling
while I stand in line.
He say
"Da da da,
they've gone too far..."
People at the shelter---
they're working real hard.

Time waits for no man
but it stands stock still for me.
Dark forces at work
in levels of history.

Big bear come a'stomping
and he's coming for you.
He's on the phone with the Devil
and he wants what's due.
He say
"Da da da,
they've gone too far..."
People are worried---
wondering where they'll hide.
Dark forces at work.
across the divide.

Speaking of "bizarre", that's actually an entire genre of art, now.

The New York Times article on Doo-nanny also featured some splendid photos of the Doo-Nanny, which have not been linked to here yet.

Backwoods Design and the Art of a Doo Nanny - There were a core group of intrepid makers and their fans there, about 1,000 visitors on the last weekend in March.

http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/04/07/g...

A burning effigy was a nod to Burning Man, the extreme art camp in the Nevada desert.

http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/04/07/g...

The Doo Nanny, which has been held for the last three years on Mr. Anthony's property, an 80-acre family compound in the Alabama woods, is a "micro" folk-art festival.

It was not a COLLABORATION. You got on the stage. They kept playing. You knew it was being recorded so now you call it A COLLABORATION forever posting a link to it. Whoever is doing music locally you try to jump on their coat tails some way. Watch people. He'll try and have me shadow banned now. Let's have a survey. All local musicians recount your experiences with him PARTY CRASHING your stage JUMPING ON YOUR COAT TAILS.
Yeah, I wrote a poem that I set to music with Snipe and Mallard.

That's called a "collaboration"... look it up.

Anyone can write anything then copyright it. PEOPLE LIKE YOU copyright stuff so you can show it to impress people that might assume a publisher did it. In reality you could copyright stuff 24-7-365 and no one cares but you. Proof. You post links on here all day. No one ever posts links about you. You are not like Lady Ga Ga. You have no fans. Why? Because you record GONGED GONG SHOW EJECTS. You should save up and go to the Apollo so you could see what it is like to be booed off a real stage.
Well, Copyright law states that actually the work becomes the property of the creator "on creation", and the author has all rights to the use of the property from that point on, without filing the paperwork.
