    This is a cassette tape featuring the songs on the Haters EP. Each cassette tape has a sticker on both sides and comes in a plastic case with the a "J-card sleeve" all the printing was done on a risograph.

    Please note, the tapes may be sped up a little bit because of the machine they were transferred on. For this reason, with the digital download I am including a transfer of the cassette as it sounded when I transferred it.

about

I presented this album for critique on April 28th, 2015 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in the 2D department.

This is the beginning in my evolving thoughts on the idea of the hater. I produced about 4 other instrumental tracks that didn't make it here, look for more hater-related content in the future.

Please note that all downloads will include lyrics .txt files and an additional audio file of the cassette tape transfer.

Recorded on my laptop in Ableton Live (8).
Some parts recorded in my studio at the Cranbrook Academy of Art and in the Cranbrook Central Media Lab.
Transferred to cassette at the Cranbrook Central Media Lab.

Track Name: Tom Cruise / The Unrequited Dream
And uh..
They said, so, like have you met a hater?
And I looked at them...and you know...
And I thought what a beautiful thing...
Maybe one day it'll be like that
You know what I'm saying?
Wow haters, they'll just read about them in the history books

Last night, the dream came again
The shard of a phantom limb
Unable to grasp within

How can you know
What you've already lost?
How can you recall
A dream that punches the clock?

I call out to the shadow's back
But my words are the sharpest stones
Falling in the lake
With no waves

How can you know
What you've already lost?
How can you recall
A dream that punches the clock?
Track Name: Dimensionality/Intentionality Interlude
It's already won me over aesthetically,
But don't be alarmed if it still falls flat for me
Against the white cube's dminensionality
It couldn't help it it's not the work's fault!
Track Name: The Doodoo that Haters Do Do
Y'all muthafuckas take the fun out profundity
Why so serious?
Make me like Wayne
Not that State,
Not that Lil,
But that Bruce
Dark and brooding
But I'm not Batman,
Cuz I'm killin' it.
That negativity
That y'all spreaded
Like nutella on some bread.
I thought I told you dumb butts
I'm allergic to hazelnut

What they say to you?
They just a hater dude
Did they hate on you?
That's just what haters do
My advice to you?
Jump up on those haters heads, on them heads like:
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup

Second verse dedicated to the all of them
Who maintains the status quo of the discourse and
Try to make me him by seasoning,
But y'all just herbs
Tryin'a put me on your spice rack
I ain't about that,
I'm fin' to attack
I put seven haters in a row
then seven more just for show
set 'em then I get ready to play hater dominooooooooes

What they say to you?
They just a hater dude
Did they hate on you?
That's just what haters do
My advice to you?
Jump up on those haters heads, on them heads like:
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup
Track Name: Assthetic Education
Lost in the Idio(t)cosm
Transforming
From work to text
To twerk to sext
Without memories or planz
The Ereignis never cums
And yet it goes all night.
"Is it happening?"
He whispers in German
Kant can't be right
Inassmuch as,
That cunt can't write.
Meanwhile,
In reverie of the goddess's milky bust,
A cyclopik serpent
Crying before the onions
Of unbeholdable perversion
"Is it pleasing?"
He whispers in German.
The Assthetic Education of Man
The pages, stuck together
