80's Music Prepared Generation X For No Future or How Five Key Pop Songs Have Become Your So Called Life

As not only a dj who works for free at a college station playing 80's music but also a pop culture vulture of eighties sociological meaning I have some wisdom of how your present life was once predicted in your past. You were listening, but maybe zapping a tank or two on COMBAT in your Atari Game Console, throwing a lawn jarts at the neighborhood nerd or roller skating at the local rink with your Members Only Jacket flapping in the post three mile meltdown decade and not really absorbing the looming lyrics predicting your generation X fail of your adulthood. Here are a few of my five favorites you might have paid more attention back in the future so one can cope better in a divorce filled, post foreclosure, laid off and poverty stricken future post big government wartime. And why. The wisdom was in the star hits lyric page or a paper jacket inside an easter egg in your adventure, no ?


" Who Can It Be Now ? " Men at Work ( 1981 ) Released in 1981, this number pop one smash first hit for Colin Hay and his merry band of video making Aussies marked the beginning of a short run of fun popular tunes, positive organic sounds and goofy faces in videos. Their first single, going to number one in many countries and being completely overplayed on commercial radio was hard to ignore. But the song itself is really about ignoring the knock on the door of the landlord, as the loser rockstar to be has not paid his rent. He is trying to be quiet, at times getting kinda belligerent for a past due renter but to be clear, this slacker is ignoring the responsibility of single dwelling. Maybe in the future, you too would lose your home, occasionally your job and possibly the guy who owns the joint would remind you of your past due and a knock on the door or a call is usually the "aaaaaahhhh- oh no !" moment Colin brilliantly captured in a pop song. A foreclosed, divorce-weekend -custody generation would know well of issues of home and whether moving quickly to one of your 27 homes or one single parent sad dwelling if you rented and did not own. A fun poppy song about being on the verge of being homeless while a creative visionary soon about to release a song sampling the main riff of christian campfire favorite tune " Kookaburra" in flute as a follow up single. So warning Gen Xers, housing may be an issue when going back to the future !


" Do You Really Want to Hurt Me " Culture Club ( 1982 ) Released in 198?, This was the first single for the Club. Lead by flamboyant transdressing gay singer Boy George, this band knocked it out of the park with style, soul and odd looks. The band went on to release tons of emotive pop singles after another, but nothing as soulful and sincere as this first smash single. " Do you really want to hurt me " asks why this person acts resentfully towards their partner / lover / other dude dressed up like ethel merman. And you completely ignored the warnings of relationships in a post generation x broken marriage area that really seem to be about hurting people and the shock of the turn after trust. Making them cry, wailing men in mascara, all that horrible relationship breakup stuff. Apparently, feeling better at the expense of making someone feel lousy about a perceived relationship or a teasing of the toe in the water continues on past sixth grade. A reminder that at any age you will be at the mercy of someone you allowed into your little brittle heart only to have the knife twist as you realize the kill was all the pleasure this person was after. do you want to make me cry ? i guess if it still makes You feel better to inflict hurt, it's as timeless as diet soda and just as fake.


Only the Lonely Can Play " Motels ( 1983 ) This is the first and almost only single for the band named after cheaper hotels in america, overtaken by Martha with the original band members becoming the Burning Sensations ( Pablo Picasso off Repo Man, Belly of the Whale ) and having few commercial success after the smash. The song makes me leap for any channel changing device or shop faster in an 80's soundtrack store, as even in the day it was a bore snore chore to sit thru for some possible Hall and Oates afterspin. And as an adult, this song should make perfect sense although nearly unbearable to listen to. You can't fuck around while you are in constant relationship status, married or long term moved in. Well, you shouldn't anyhow. But folks like myself in post divorce, no relationship string things can do whatever the f we want. Have donuts for dinner, see midget strippers, make shitty decisions on drunk dudes and buying liars spew for a spell. They just soak in like a bad sun in orange glow to give off a rancid hue of horrorshow. Being lonely does have it's advantages, and knowing full well my adult life was probably spent more with dogs over gods, you must embrace the suck to enjoy the play. and remember, only the lonely !


"wouldn't it be good " Nick Kershaw ( 1984) Most of you love and enjoy this pop tune, he is a one hit wonder in the states and more beloved in the UK, other countries i can't pronounce and somewhere else worthy of David Hasselhoff tickets in a stadium. The video of him in a lost in space outfit helped me love him more, but this tiny sad tune released in a warm spring of HBO specials, mtv and horrible middle school moments in flub was more about dark things. Dark things like adult emotions that loomed in your future from failure, giving up when beaten, resigning when falling and throwing a race or two to avoid even sharing with another human your pain and suffering. You hope these moments come when life is over, but what happens when they over take your every waking moment of failure replay before their time ? How to repair a damaged emotional state is not a popular undertaking to reboot in a rewired world when my inner chip is a bit outdated to say the least. nor is it easy to do on your own. Much like the end of the chocolate war, what happens next when you don't get off the mat after refusing to join in the chant of greed?  Sick of fighting, frozen to the bone and wishing yourself away. Sound familiar ?


" Tainted Love"  Soft Cell ( 1981 ) Two new wavey gothy gravey guys took an old soul tune and coldly one hit that wonder into your head forever. Not only it is your favorite dance-able break up song from back in the day, it for tells your future of low down dirty shame from horrible relationships. Soulful, sad and silly, Soft Cell manages to bang out all the shitty feelings that spew from just about every relationship crack / open wound that forced you into a safe marriage away from the pain of the occasional and back again when that monument tumbles into dust. Ow. In your shepre teens, you could not conceive boys would be allowed that close to the edit to fuck shit up like no other and of course vice verse, same as the first. Failure seemed pretty obvious the pain inflicted need to feed the hungry like the wolf predator looming over an answering machine message of rejection or a scribed note of goodbye, but decades of this crap to stay sick's ....... it's back to the future with fail !
 Say hello, wave goodbye.....

works in progress - teeny tiny bat

sometimes the creatures in my life can be inspirational to some of the works i construct. lately old phones i disassemble look much like the little bats that roost around the neighborhood in CLE. With a ton of old factories being torn down this year, many displaced bats have made their way to my building. In the summer, it is so hot and many people leave windows open in the common areas of the warehouse i dwell in with the lights blazing all night. I made old screens to fit my space to avoid this swarm in my space every eve. But without such horribly made screens, the hallways fill with bugs and with that comes with the animal that we need to eat the fogs of midges and other pesky insects. We suspect they roost above us and often they fall out when pipes burst or a cold winter kills a furnace or two.
as a modern day walking wednesday addams, clearly i am a lover of such a creepy cute animal that really just likes to shit, eat handfed mealworm covered bananas, snuggle up to a heatbeat upside down and screech when he is pissed or hungry. who can't relate ? 
stay tuned...

deadmall : Rolling Acres

Ruinporn photos are hot. Your childhood capitalist hangout pre & free shipping  hotspot dead like a zombie movie shoot ? Super hot. Stupidhugespaces now abandoned are  very popular for photographers, or everyone with a camera phone to capture the quick demise of meatspace retail. I zipped out to the land of Zips a few months ago to the Restore located in Akron, near where the once, literally, "rolling" hills this double decker mall stood. Although much of it is still there, the zinging cash registers collecting sales tax and disposable jobs employing the lower classes of masses left over from the industrial age; GONE.  Quiet. miles of parking seemed to spread all over an area where one has to wonder how many people actually had to be here to use all this space ? to need it ? mass holiday sales ? no more driving all over for a parking space, plenty was to be found here. I did not frequent this mall, as it was far and had a small grisly murder of teenage girls to taint it made it not a place my parents allowed. However, it was obviously a super large mall that seemed to cater to very different tastes of the more suburban malls we were used to. Midnight horror movies, crazy odd clothes & again massive amounts of space made you feel like you were in some spaceship of shopping. Now it sits, in a concrete shell of capitalist facades falling into the walkways and handicapped zones. What to do with sweet dreams made of this ? See the Scene for more "wow, look ! a mall falling apart " photos here for more photos of decay

winter winter everywhere

This winter wonderland watercolor is by my neighbor William Gould. His works are all over the hallways of the lofts in 1400 on the 4th floor. This one i like because it sometimes reminds me of a barn in medina or sometimes recalls an abandoned factory in the city. both are landscapes i am familiar with from living in the midwest, plus a nice frosting of cold snow.

In the 80's, we had mixed tapes. A mixed tape would be a recordable tape you could put a few songs on for a friend, someone to impress or trade music with. Often you could make friends with the right person who could or would tape you most of their collection to listen to. Bonus points if that person had a shopping addiction or bought music to be too cool for school. Although i do admit to taping a ton of music from the library or a friend's collection, i would HAVE to buy a real copy eventually as repeated listening on a recordable tape was limited to abuse. In the 80's, we had no free listening devices. Nothing to stream or steal. If you wanted to hear the last four cocteau twins singles, you had to make nice with a person who HAD paid over 30 - 40 $ per order /  PLUS shipping / allowed six weeks for delivery ( SIX WEEKS - this generation would be dead by then if they had to wait that long for a song ), pony up all that cash yourself for unheard music you don't know you like or wait 30 years until half the collection is in the budget bin at Record Exchange in Lakewood for 2 bucks each. Now i listen to music on i tunes to determine if i should buy the whole shebang or a single or two, maybe you tube if it isn' t some horrible photo montage of kittens wrapped in sheets or scout the intertubes. But back in the day i didn't have this luxury, so what is great fun of this show is my opportunity to explore the eighties just as much as the listener to the show or station. Often my show can seem to me like a mixed tape, or the process of constructing one. My opportunity to walk in, choose a few tunes to revisit, hear other versions /releases i am not familiar with & pair them up. 
A trip to the past can be just as fun for me, too.

erie effusion retroradioshoWRUW: 1/26/14

Every sunday sunday sunday i host the Erie Effusion Eighties Retro Radioshow on WRUW 91.1FM from 6pm - 8pm, live here in Cleveland and on the internet at to stream it !
This sunday we played -ready for it - alternative eighties music. The station has one of the largest vinyl libraries in the state of ohio located on a college campus. Most of the records stopped trickling in from record companies about 1991, replaced by burned discs in smaller envelopes to easily mail to hundreds of stations, clubs and djs. From 1977 - 1991, the vinyl record collection was clearly used by the many comments scribed on the jackets, but as the cd collection grew in the 90's, largely forgotten. As it was much much easier to dj from a five or three deck cd player as opposed to flippin records, most college stations chucked their already modest or picked over vinyl to resale record shoppes. Kent State had a wall of vinyl that is (was - i found much of it at Square Records ) as big as our C section. No joke. Ok maybe a small one, but point being records were already uncool. Clunky. Records that were scratched, needed to be timed correctly ( 45 ? 35 ? 78 ? just kidding ) and often broke with much handling of the disc. They did not survive drops or falls, unlike a CD. In the early days of CD, we would just get one song or a bunch of cds with one song or two. They could have put their whole catalog on it but oh well, more waste of space to pinpoint market "Creep" by radiohead. Or any one band. Add buttons, tee shirts, band swag and collectables to boot. But these are the days of college radio of the past and all this has changed in the golden age of wireless. Every week i get to go back in time and grab a few flat friends i have not heard from in a while to fire up some good memories of the neon glow of o-h-i-o in the 80's to play for you and the rest of the third rock from the sun. This is my 8th year on air ! Here is my playlist :

Nick Heyward : Kick of Love
Nick Heyward : OVer the Weekend
Haircut 1001 : Calling Capt. Autumn
Waitresses : Bread and Butter ( remix )
General Public : Too Much or Nothing 12 "
UB40  : Sing Our Song

2014 Goal : Eating Better Batter

 My goals to improve on this year included eating better from scratch. As your stereotypical starving artist, it's been easy to waste away to a hip thinness over the years. But as i have started to age and this lack of any nutrients doesn't work real well on old ladies nor does it wear well. I can't look like i am on expensive designer club drugs while i really can barely afford a new pair of shoes since 2010. Most people assume the food spaces i work for part time just craft up a plate of free food for me per shift but the reality is not that at all. If you have 20 bucks left until you don't know when, you aren't blowing that on one dinner. Not with gas this high. Not with a dog that whines when it is hungry. Thankfully, i don't have to feed anyone else but occasion borrowing neighbor with key maybe. So since the new year started, I try to make a few items to chew on for a few days. Hysterical buying practices since the polarlike conditions of the world have made this a challenge since often the meat department looks like a zombie movie set once a storm is announced. Pancakes, pot roast, pulled pork, stirfrys and many other stupid basic dishes i am not posting here like i am some celebrity chef have filled my sink with dirty dishes; reminding me of my hate for cleaning up after solo dinners. But since i work for such five to four star chefs all throughout time, it would be quite moronic to waste away while trying to buy art supplies over food. i have already had new jobs not work out or cut my hours after working a very short time so i am no stranger to economic belt tightening of business at this time of year. Bust out the peppermint pig to suck on & stretch out and wait ~> beet berry whole wheat flapjacks

 Thank you to the many who donated to my cause. I am lucky today to pay for some past dues and still have much to go. Lucky because I had a few new opportunities drop into the pot to teach some art and work wood crafts & more hours anywhere. Tonite i will be open after work if anyone wants to stop by to grab some studio stuff. Anyone who drops some change into my donation is welcome to fill their cart with local art, frames, weird wood crafts or holiday unsold items i need to clear out to make room for new stuff & classroom space. Enough people have expressed the interest in classes at the studio so it's in the works. Tonite i am open 6 - 9 for pick up & next week Saturday 11 - 3. If the door is locked check the number on the door & buzz me. I missed my show this week so i will return next week, sorry to anyone who needed their 80's fix. But that would be what life without me would sound like, so thanks to all who would prefer a non dead dj . Four more weeks ! owww

Is it MAYDAY already ?

This year has started off so wonderfully. Due to insane reasons beyond my comprehension, I found myself once again without a job after years of loyal employment. A crummy economy made for the worst open studio sale i have ever bother to hostess prior to the holidays. My little galleries are thankfully the only chump change i got this year but it was all. And don't get me wrong, it's amazing to pay bills with art. but no joke, i needed a j-0-b not to go away without warning or compensation. I am beyond behind on my bills and lucky the last few weeks i have found three part time jobs to help this immediate problem, somewhat. Today i woke up to another half a grand problem to fix first, shitty smashed window in my unlocked car adding up to crappy times. I lost all opportunity to work at ALL JOBS today & tomorrow and thursday until i get my car fixed. I can't stay here with an open car in downtown cle, so away i go until we find a new order of glass for the back. i had my dirty bathtowels and all linens stolen + my recycling. Due to enormous bitching on social media, many people have offered to help and i have created the donation button on the side. if you shoot me a buck or two, i will offer up any leftover art i have here as i am swimming in the unsold of the holidays & the few fleas i sold nothing at. I have stuff i need to get rid of, art, flowers, collages, furniture, frames, odd stuff, bones, skulls, cool things, maps & legends. i will open up when i return for suburbia & pay you back for playing it forward. $1, $ 5 0r $ 10 would really help out and i will give you ART in exchange for your bucks for sucks like me . I will be holding opening studio hours this saturday 12- 4, sunday 12 - 4 ( day ) & monday 6 - 9  ( night ) if you just wanna drop by and check out the clearance clarence. soda donations count as well. mealworms. you know. thank you to all the people bugging me to help, i am not looking for large amounts

The donation button is on the upper right, pls txt or email me if you just want to send it to 
myfirstnameDlastnameatpaypal that will shirley work to help the dj. just one wing !

New Ohio Works for 2014

2014 has rang in with sub zero temps here in No-Hio. This has rendered me at home, very little job left to go to and staring at the weather forecast in hopes or disbelief. I was throwing out leftover wood ( or contemplating burning it to stay warm ) and thought they might look better with some stain & stencil of the heart of it all. Ohio is actually a fun state shape to work with, looks good in squares and has edgy angles perched on the top of the country.

all weather reports have included colors not normally seen unless you had a computer and internet in 1977, which you didn't. temperature is often classified in colors for those who can't read or see so good. Cold fronts here are completely fabricated from decorative thrifted paint from home depo's discount table of "colors not normally used outside 1983" for walls

Ohio would love to break up at I - 76. But this piece is a recurring theme i often have grass greener on the other side of my state of stain filled industry and former scars of success
all these works are on leftover sanded pallet wood, stained and stencil for under 10


erieffusion retro radioshow : 1 /5 / 2014 - what do i get ?

sunday evenings i host the erie effusion eighties retro radio show on WRUW 91.1 FM. I have been a volunteer dj since 2006. I usually only play the vinyl preserved in one of the largest surviving vinyl collections on a college campus in the country. The choices of mine are largely untouched, not played often and probably abandoned quickly for the easier format of compact discs just a few years later. when i started as a dj at WKSR in 1990, our vinyl collection would fit in a tiny corner of my current college owned vault. But discs sounded better, less errors ( 45 ? 78 ? oops ! ) and were easier to handle. Or so we were told at the time. I found they often skipped and were easily damaged, but vinyl doesn't do well in my dirty artsy hands either. i will play discs or the digital downloads, but i prefer the odd offerings b sides, compilations, soundtracks and anything on vinyl that was a different version. or, in the case of our cocteau twins collection, like complete fuzz underwater. so you can have more content, here is the weekly playlist for erieffusion with mild chatter about wot really goes thru my head on the wall every week...Click here to listen or download HERE
