Changing the Mouth

Hello to anyone who may actually read this, but I think the mouth need a big change. No one cares about either the music we play or the medium in general. I have gotten responses from musicians and asked them for music to play. I generally get the "yeah cool, ok where to I send it?" responses, but nothing arrives. I have a few, and none of them are experimental - so I am thinking about turning my back on those who have so eagerly turned their backs on me.

If Scottymouth persists, it will be an indie station - all genres welcome, though I suspect it will be those whose music is humble and not pretentious.

2008 is a new year, and maybe the last.

Musicians/Indie Artists Lazy

Fans - if you have an indie band and have not yet responded to our pleads for more music from you, we don't want to hear any cries if this deal we are working on goes through and we say "forget you". Scottymouth's Hour of Oddity is potentially going to be broadcasting locally with over 10k watts of power behind it. You could have YOUR BAND played, on the air - simulcast on Scottymouth and Podcast. BUT THE BANDS CANNOT BE BOTHERED TO SEND A FREAKING MP3 of a good song or two for airplay. We have iTunes registration pending, we are now listed on Radio Row and much more in the works. If Scottymouth gets big, the only artists who will benefit are the loyal ones who took the time to try us out. The rest of you can rot in limbo playing Wednesdays at the Plus 5 Lounge (which doesn't even exist anymore!)

This is your last chance - go to and find out how to submit songs.

Why do they hate?

I recently read a book by Brigitte Gabriel entitled, Because they Hate. I was completely taken in by her story and personal accounts of the war in Lebanon in the late 70's early 80's. She was a Christian girl living in the Middle East and watched as the Muslims forced them out, with violence and hate. Her story is compelling and incredible, moving and terrible, thought provoking and scary. The last two chapters, however became, what I believe to be right-wight talking points. She advocates for the complete erradication of the Islamic people. It is a simple case of beating them to the punch, they want us all to convert to Islam or die. I am paraphrasing, hopefully accurately, but the point is made.

This is a perfect metaphor for what the right does every day. I guess I can say that I am left-of-center. I am far from an intellectual, however I question just about everything because some things are just to hard to swallow, Kool-aid included. For the right, the republicans and ditto-heads, the only goal is to win. It doesn't matter about the facts, it doesn't matter about who is destroyed. Average americans pay heed, you will be destroyed by Michelle Malkin, L Rushbo and the rest if you differ from them. No debate, no conversation, just attack attack attack. Even if I agreed with their policies, I would oppose their tactics. I am now probably un-american now, because I disagree. Well, about 70 percent of the populous must be un-american. I am amazed that this country is still a country.

Sure, some on the left do it too, I agree. But how many of those have you seen on the main stream media? Indeed it is lop-sided. But what can you do? What can I do? I write this mostly for my own therapy because I am pretty sure that nobody reads this. So get out there and vote for someone who will propose legislation to change the electoral system - we need publicly funded campaigns, no more CORPORATE DONATIONS!

Internet Radio and the Evil Empire

My 2 Cents:

How can it possibly be legal for the recording industry to collect royalties from unsigned, unpublished bands? I see that they are lobbying to charge me for playing bands who WANT me to play their music. How do I know that those artists are going to get their royalties? There is nothing in the proposed legislation that guarantees the artist a check. I am beginning to believe that the only way the "little guy" in this country will be equally represented is if we throw out EVERYONE and start new, with publicly funded elections and outlaw lobbying. I cannot fathom how my little operation is dismatling the recording industry. I only have a handful of bands who have agreed to be played on Scottymouth, and I don't know what I would do if I had to pay. I mean, some of the work is mine, does that mean I have to pay myself?

Politicians and big corporate slugs have taken the fun out of everything, and forget art, if it doesn't turn a profit, it isn't art - to some of those bloodsuckers anyway.

But screw it - no one is reading this blog, so no one will probably listen to Scottymouth. I am trying to do something for an overlooked genre of music and no one gives a rat's ass. Why bother?

Because I love it that's why!

Empire State Roar crushes Conn Cyclones

- East Rochester, NY

The WPFL team Empire State Roar displayed a prowess which suprised me, a first time WFA spectator. Final score Roar 61 'Clones nil. Who would have ever guessed that a women's pro football game could have such excitement, well planned playes and bone crushing action! There were quite a few plays that made me think about the pain tolerance differences between men and women. Now, I am not a sports writer, as a matter of fact - I have been disallusioned by sports for some time now, but I would happily ask for an autograph of an ES Roar player.

Women can and will do anything men can do - this time better.

Since the invention of chauvanism - I think that men have been given a pretty good score considering. What I mean, basically speaking, is that for the most part - men have ruled and controlled the reporting of the ruling. When women started controlling some of the rules, then we started to read about and see the truth. Let's face it people, women are badasses. OK, there are some sterotypes about "sporty" women and especially those who may play football - but that has absolutely NOTHING to do with athletic talent. The Roar is chock full of talent.

I will not go into stats, I will not name names, jersey numbers or anything like that. I was there to shoot the game and get it uploaded to the proper website. But what I will say, is that you are missing out if you fail to go to a Roar game. The Bills are great, in spirit. I know I am still a Fins fan, yes, but the Roar are my favorite right now.

Have you ever noticed that some people just cannot be agreeable? I won't even go as far as nice, people don't have to be nice, in my opinion, just agreeable. When someone seems to go out of their way to make your day miserable, I think they need to be put down, like a mean dog. It is really a shame when someone tries to control you so completely that you feel like your balls have been removed and put on display for the paying tourists. "Look honey, he had big ones too!" Once they are clipped, you are done for.

Is this an observation about marriage you ask? Probably.

When is the Mind Open?

So I'll admit, I have been out of it for a while and I have no idea where music is heading or where it has been for the past 6 years, frankly. I wonder about the days when grunge took hold of the world and really changed everything. There doesn't really seem to be such a trend these days. Perhaps that is good, because at the time, I openly rebelled against grunge, yet secretly enjoyed the bands and philosophies. I was in a band during the early to mid-nineties. Actually two bands. Most people don't realize what it takes to dedicate yourself to originaly music, I certainly didn't. There was a time when our band, Phonetic Plumbing was discussing moving to SanFran to try our luck in that scene. We were divided, which revealed the measure of our resolve as a group. My reasons, in retrospect, were foolish. I was young enough to take a chance with my bills, with my girlfriend, with my family - but I was too much of a pussy to do it. Who knows what may have happened, I could have ended up dead for all I know. I don't regret it now, but the unknown of those days peaks back into my life when I let it.

For now, I will try and dedicate my spare time to promoting and exposing this wonderful genre of creativity that lurks in the shadows in your city - I say "your" because I would be surprised to find it here in Rochester, NY. Once we are up and running solid I will put some feelers out, but this is the same town which gave birth to Lou Gramm.

In the meantime, if anyone reads this post, please feel free to e-mail submissions.

Back to the main thought: is open mindedness really in the hearts and intentions of musicians, or is it yet another clique that subsumes our artists. Sure, there are some who enjoy all forms of expression without judgement. I find those individuals rare and elusive. I would love to walk into a random local band rehearsal and discuss classical, jazz or even country without the snickers and off-comments. I know that this may be a long-shot, but there is hope, right?

Lets try again with Part Three

Not sure why the first try didn't work!

Roy Gordon Podcast Part Three

Roy Gordon Podcast Part Deux

Hi Friends,

This is part 2 of the show from back in '04.


Roy Gordon Podcast

Cheney's Words

So back in '94 the VP described in detail, the negative side of invading Baghdad. Many of the pundits are backing him up claiming that what he said was true then, but no longer applies these days due to the war on Terror. I would argue that it is even more pertinent now because with the eminent threat of terror lurking around every corner, having a really crappy occupation would embolden those who would do us harm. Things there would fall apart and they have. I guess I am just sick of this bunch and want them out.

Scottymouth Will Air Again!

Hi Loyals,

Those of you who may remember that Scottymouth is an internet radio station and not a blog should be happy to discover that the switch will happen in about a month. Scottymouth has been residing on Blogspot for a few years due to the fact that there was no home for the Mouth. Checkout the MySpace page/scottymouthradio.
