Episode 3: Going in Circles
Saturday Nov. 18, 2006

Episode Details: Art work by David Yue; Music, lyrics, and choreography by Timothy Yue. I have to warn viewers that subject matter of this song is very dark. The song's story comes from one of my worst nightmares. It had a Memento, injury, memory-loss component. I wanted to post this song, because I really like the African drums synthesized with electronic taps. Tie Your Shoes Faster

Episode Details: Art work by David Yue; Choreographed by Timothy Yue; "I Heard It through the Grapevine" by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong in 1967; Standing in the Shadows of Motown(2002); California Raisins.

This piece is a tribute to the Funk Brothers, one of the great Motown bands. Grapevine is the first guitar/tap song I ever played. It epitomizes the polyrhythm. A simple rhythm and guitar riff combine to make a funk beat greater than the sum of its parts. Episode 6: Grapevine

Episode 7: Psychic Sex Dreams

Saturday Jan. 13, 2007

Episode Details: Art work by David Yue; Music, lyrics, and choreography by Timothy Yue.

Like Noam Chomsky's "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously," this psychedelic song has a cool sounding title, that makes no logical sense. For the best sound and the full bass listen on decent computer speakers, or plug some good headphones into your computer. Episode 7: Psychic Sex Dreams

A Bluesy Rock song tells the fantasy of a girl wearing a long trench coat with an unexpected surprise waiting inside her jacket. Just wanted to put up a fun, little song. Hope you enjoy. Episode 8: Naked Surprise
