about

TATTOO IDEAS/DIGI C-SIDE or Tattoo Ideas 2: Electric Boogaloo is a digital-only supplement to my 2015 cassette Tattoo Ideas, featuring two long time written first time recorded songs elaborating on the theme of my personal "gender journey," as they say.

A note on the title: Tattoo Ideas is about how transgender feelings take shape as thoughts or ideas--intangible but not incorporeal--until transition gives them form, embodiment, beauty, permanence--like a tattoo, get it? Plus as Joni Mitchell observed "songs are like tattoos."

Music and lyrics written performed recorded produced etc by myself in my bedroom. Thanks to riglow for mixing advice and to my neighbours for putting up with me.

Track Name: Untucked
well i want what i can't get
so i probably don't know what i need yet
and i probably don't know what i mean there
so i'm never gonna say
that i want her to be set
in her ways alone and stored like diskette
in a daze adorned with sores in a minaret
where i never have to gaze

over above at another enough
another lover to love and to then get rid of
when you discover your love isn't anything but
whatever under the covers you left untucked

rewind the cassette
to the place before it became a duet
singing aura lee to casio preset
not aurora but a way's away
where i walk like a cat wet
from a sprinkler or a hose like a new pet
in a crate travelling home from a new vet
kitty wanted to be spayed
Track Name: Way To Be
if i want another way to be
is it not available to me
what was lost alternate history
the mirage of genealogy

turn around and face reality
what a sound a sense of certainty
what was found when i was lost at sea
what was drowned at last sunk into me

now i’m alive
i can breathe
i can be somebody
how i survive
i just breathe
i believe my body

oh my god it’s coming naturally
overwrought but not substantially
like a plot or published recipe
there’s a spot with some discrepancy

like a jar is sealed hermetically
au revoir and retrospectively
sayonara caterpillar me
girl you are a butterfly indeed

now i’m alive
i can breathe
i can be somebody
how i survive
i just breathe
i believe my body
