Description
"Imagine the problem of buying a wife if Camels were used as money and inflation hit". For years I collected propoganda, the propoganda we were forced to watch in Public schools back in the 60's. Tapes and slides shows, "multi-media" for you kids, 16mm films that actually came on a big stinkin heavy metal reel. I knew how to work the machine...you know, that geek media kid? Ya, that was me...you know why I did it? Because it got me out of class...with a pass to go get some shit.
A free pass to go get some shit...think about it. I'm getting off track.
I became obsessed to some extent, with all of this media propoganda we were force fed, viet nam, world war II, LSD, sex ed, government, money...shit it was all lies, right? Mis-information as it became know in the late 70's.
20 Years old and this song could be about tomorrow, weird. The $10 casio again suppliying the beat, along with the JX3p and the Strat with the E Bow. Of course, the propoganda was supplied by a local public school. Names were changed to protect the innocent.

E Bow
Interesting ending. Sounds very skeptical, for me it conjures up
thoughts of overpopulation, industrial air pollution, and acid rain...

the Casios sound beautiful!
