Time Slips Away

I’ve been super busy.

The new rock album that the guys and I have been recording this summer is a compilation of our best songs from the first 4 Blabpipe albums, all of which are now unpublished.

We also added a new song, and had to fight the urge to add more new songs because I literally have hundreds of new songs waiting in the wings to be recorded.

When I tell people that I now have over 700 fully developed, original songs, they simply don’t believe me. I know they don’t believe me but it happens to be the truth. I write new material almost daily.

It’s like a faucet I can’t turn off.

‘Crandew’s Clickable Pic -get transported to some far-off, wonderful place.’

The following are a few selected songs from our previous albums. Like I said, we have 4 albums that predate these and were published but have since been pulled for various reasons.

6 Pack

Fold Me

Avalanche

Moongoat

Gen X

Gen X

Idle Hands

Virtuosa

Our time is what we make of it.

For me, I’m trying like crazy to get the newest album finished before the end of the world, but man, it’s going to be close.

Also, just try searching ‘Crandew’ and see if you can find any of the 850+ posts this site contains. Good luck, because you’ll never find any of them except from what others have generously reposted.

That’s called shadow-banning, and it’s only done to someone who holds an opinion different from the mainstream media.

Safety Dance

I woke up this morning thinking about freedom, about the illusive American dream but most of all about the 80’s. Man, I miss the 80’s.

Then, this song drowned all that out.

Safety Dance by Men Without Hats

Honestly, after all these years, I still have no idea what in the hell he was trying to tell us. He’s only friends with people who dance. He’s from the circus. The village people all seem friendly enough – I’m moving there.

Nope, still can’t figure it out.

All the Leaves are Brown

Our country is being dismantled; the realm is currently on fire but my album is almost complete. Hot damn!

My original goal was to finish the darn thing and get it published before the end of the world and it’s going to be close. About as close as it can get. Oh, I’ll get it finished, no doubt about that, but how much of the realm will be left standing to actually listen to it? No way to know until we get there.

So, I guess we’ll all find out together.

Right Now

When you’re home
Everything seems to be
right now

All alone
Feeling a part of the

All the leaves are brown
The trees are lovely
this time of year

All the leaves are brown
The trees are lovely,
trees are lovely

People keep on talking
I just keep on walking
People stop and stare
I don’t even care

Things to Come

The future isn’t set in stone, my friends.

With each passing day, tiny things are becoming just a little bit brighter. I’m glad that everyone’s going to get exactly what they’ve always wanted, what they so truly deserve.

It may be the weather or the progress I’ve recently made on my new album, but I’m feeling the subtle wave of optimism as it splashes wildly across my face.

Can you feel it?

Hot damn, here comes the revolution!

Underwhelmed

If the world is still here in the morning, I’ll be very, very surprised. In fact, no matter what happens now… I’m going to be underwhelmed.

I’ve been busy with the new album, which is coming along smashingly. A few new tracks, and a restoration of some pretty awesome material (if I do say so myself).

Hope everyone’s holding it together in my absence. 🙂

Virtuosa

Happy Friday everyone!

I started out my early morning ritual in the usual manner by walking across the wastelands and look what I found – a cassette tape. What a trip, man. Brings me back to the good old days.

Also, speaking of musical days of the past, I miss being on stage all the time and acting a fool. I really do, but I guess that’s just a thing of the past now.

Perhaps, if I’m as wrong in my assumptions as the majority of people around me think I am, then I’ll be right back up there, doing my thing.

Now, wouldn’t that be a gas?

just shut up
let's go for a ride
every step forward
leaves another one
far behind

just hold on
to a moment in time
every chance meeting
leaves another one
far behind

virtuosa
treading lightly
through my soul

virtuosa
try’s forever
to control

virtuosa
running lightly
through my soul

virtuosa
cry’s forever
in my soul

just shut up
let's go for a ride
nothing much matters
in the real world
lose your mind

just hold on
to a moment in time
every chance meeting
leaves another one
far behind

virtuosa
treading lightly
through my soul

virtuosa
try’s forever
to control

virtuosa
running lightly
through my soul

virtuosa
cry’s forever
in my soul

Fantastic! You know, it probably would be a better world if we all just shut up every once and a while and went for rides. Just saying.

Also, be sure to go out to your local mart today and pick up the latest in audio technology, the incredibly durable tape cassette. These little items are virtually flying off the shelves.

Oh, and while you’re perusing what could only be described as an always marvelous selection, a trusted source for the latest hits, be sure to grab one of these hot numbers.

Trust me. You’re going to love it 🙂

Moongoat

I’m working on a new album, so I’ll be sharing links and posting music stuff for a while. If you want to support, I really appreciate it.

If it’s not your thing, no worries. 🙂

Rock on!

I've been doing
time
rolling hills
in front of me

and I'm doing
fine
without your chains
on top of me

What if the moongoat
swallows the sun?

Maybe the moongoat
follows the sun?

I've been feeling
high
when you're
away from me

and I'm
running
wild
escaping destiny

What if the moongoat
swallows the sun?

Maybe the moongoat
follows the sun?

Tuesday

I’ve been immersed in my music and as the days grow longer, my reluctance to rejoin the fake internet society, the web, grows right along with it. Max was right about one thing. What does a web do?

It catches things. It locks them into place, eventually devouring anything foolish enough to get caught in it. Welcome to our modern-day society, folks. Welcome to the web.

Oh look, here’s a song about Tuesday. How convenient.

Let’s check it out. 🙂

Oh hey
it's been a while
Happy to see
your wicked smile
All over the world
the dawn is breaking
so harshly..
we're on our own

Unchained
yet chilled to the bone
all that remains
remains alone
All over the world
the dawn has broken
so harshly.. and
we're on our own

Everyone's hung on Tuesday
By tomorrow 
they'll all be gone

OK
relax for a while
I'm happy to see
your crooked smile
It may be too late
the dawn is breaking
so harshly..
we're on our own

Unchained
or so I am told
all that remains
is now so old
It may be too late
the dawn has broken
so harshly.. and
we're on our own

Everyone's hung on Tuesday
By tomorrow 
they'll all be gone

Caravan

I’m working on a new album, so I’ll be sharing links and posting music stuff for a while. If you want to support, I really appreciate it.

If it’s not your thing, no worries. 🙂

Rock on!

I'm riding on a caravan
while dancing in the clover

Said goodbye to all my friends
Over and over and over and over again

I'm riding on a caravan
while the world is growing colder

Another stranger in a foreign land
Over and over and over and over again

But is it right to choose
while others far more fortunate
will lose their way

It's far beyond
the circus of today today

while others far more fortunate
will lose their way

It's far beyond the circus of today

Caravan was written in 2019, appearing on Blabpipe’s ‘Idle Hands’ album the following year.
