There's A Fella Comin' Round

Whenever a man find himself smitten, the natural anthropology of how he will make his feelings know comes to life. There’s A Fella Comin’ Round tells what he is in for. Making his plea on a porch swing or a parlor sofa, the power of woman’s pride is never to be underestimated.

Long before the entire coastline of the United States was dotted with ocean front housing and condos, there was a lot of making out on the beach at night. The swing song Moonburn not only captures the heat of those moments, but also has a melody that once in your head will start playing itself whenever it wants. It’s a very pleasant kind of madness that will have you singing in your car or wanting to dance all night.


Oh, just try making love on the beach these days and you will most likely get arrested.
That is, unless you own the beach.

Is there such a thing as having too much money? Does the quest to amass huge personal fortunes corrupt one’s sense of duty and responsibility to his fellow citizen. Not according to the point of view in I’ve Got Money. Truth is told, the more you get, the more you want, and you don’t have to be concerned about anyone but yourself. A psychotic naughty boy
with a very bad attitude. Indeed!

A Child's Reflections on Kanute

The late 10th Century English monarch King Kanute (Cnut) is best know for the British folk tale of his reign. To demonstrate that the king has no divine power, King Kanute takes his court to the sea shore. At low tide he stands were the sea has withdrawn to, and then commands the tide not to come in. When the tide came in anyway, he succeeded in showing that the king is just an administrator. In the style of a European waltz, A Child’s Reflections on Kanute, is the fantasy of a child that insists that his sand castle will not be overtaken by the oncoming tide.
