Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Frankenstein Earphone Radio

Monday, January 31st, 2022

Bill Gates by Critters Buggin, 1997

LOOK AT THE PICTURE!!!
See the skull, the part of bone removed,
the “master-race” Frankenstein radio controls,
the Brain-thoughts Broadcasting Radio,
the Eyesight Television,
the Frankenstein Earphone Radio,
the Threshold Brainwash Radio,
the latest new skull reforming to contain ALL Frankenstein Controls,
even in THIN skulls of WHITE PEDIGREE MALES!

DEADLY ASSAULTS, even in my yard with knives,
even bricks and stones,
even DEADLY TOUCH TABIN or ELECTRIC SHOCK FLASHLIGHTS;
even remote electronically controlled around-corners-projection
of DEADLY TOUCH TARANTULA SPIDERS
or even bloody-murder “accidents”

These hangmanrope sneak deadly gangsters,
the judges the police
trick, trap, rob, wreck, butcher, and MURDER the people
to keep them TERRORIZED
in Gangster Frankenstein earphone radio slavery

Look up and see the Gangster Computer God
concocted NEW FAKE STARRY SKY!
The worldwide completely controlled deadly degenerative
climate and atmosphere through the new world round
Translucent Exotic Gaseous Envelope

You are a terrorized member of the “MASTER RACE” worldwide
4 BILLION eye-sight television camera guinea pig
Communist Gangster Computer God MASTER RACE!
You’re LIVING, THINKING mad, deadly worldwide
Communist Gangster Computer God SECRET OVERALL PLAN:
WORLDWIDE LIVING DEATH FRANKENSTEIN SLAVERY

Critters Buggin used a portion of one of Francis E.Dec’s rants as lyrics for Bill Gates on their 1997 album Host.

Critters Buggin is a Seattle, Washington rock, jazz, funk, punk, ambient, electronic band (1993–present) — they’re strange, all over the place, and have at least 9 (to me) fascinating tunes.

Francis E. Dec 1926-1996) “was an American lawyer and outsider writer who was best known for his typewritten diatribes that he independently mailed and published from the late 1960s onward. His works are characterized by highly accusatory and vulgar attacks, often making use of conglomerate phrases like “Mad Deadly Worldwide Communist Gangster Computer God” to slander people, groups or companies that he believed were engaging in electronic harassment against him, and gained a cult following from the mid-1980s onward due to their comedic incoherence.” – per Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_E._Dec).
