F*ck Horse Racing- Jonathan Swift Was Right
Those stupid pukes were running their horse Big Brown with a SPLIT HOOF. They put some kind of super glue patch on it. Well, he just refused to run- horse has more brains than half the human race, and the jockey let him alone when he wouldn't respond. I was so pissed off about that race but what an amazingly talented, intelligent horse.
Jonathan Swift was correct when he made the horses have the smartest country in Gulliver's Travels and their population "the perfection of nature!"
It's misanthrope Monday y'all!
Shortly thereafter he meets a horse and comes to understand that the horses (in their language Houyhnhnm or "the perfection of nature") are the rulers and the deformed creatures ("Yahoos") are human beings in their basest form. Gulliver becomes a member of the horse's household, and comes to both admire and emulate the Houyhnhnms and their lifestyle, rejecting humans as merely Yahoos endowed with some semblance of reason which they only use to exacerbate and add to the vices Nature gave them. However, an Assembly of the Houyhnhnms rules that Gulliver, a Yahoo with some semblance of reason, is a danger to their civilization and he is expelled. He is then rescued, against his will, by a Portuguese ship that returns him to his home in England. However, he is unable to reconcile himself to living among Yahoos; he becomes a recluse, remaining in his house, largely avoiding his family, and spending several hours a day speaking with the horses in his stables.

My second EP for Go-Kustom has dropped on Itunes. Once again, like Killing machine, this is soundtrack music for the film Hot Rod Girls Save The World. The song, Hemi Charger, is more of me talking petulantly than singing but it has it's sassy musical moments.
I thought of Tura Satana when d.a. Sebasstian first sent me the lyrics:
"Broken white lines
A town you'll never miss
And no one waved goodbye"
It definitely is being sung from the perspective of a woman on the move, not too worried about the past and moving forward 100%. I suggested we add Tura to the song because I love her, she's one in a million and always happy to give a fledgling some advice.
