Press Release: “Palace Algeria”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on 02/27/2012 by jeremyshingles

MICHAELmATICIAN’s upcoming sound unit will contain a sound piece named “Palace Algeria”. MICHAELmATICIAN has stated that Algeria is the last stronghold of the Resistance, therefore we assume the sound piece elaborates upon that. Also, “Palace Algeria” will mark the first time since 1988 that a music single has referenced Algeria (Algeria’s national anthem was released as a Christmas song in 1988). Although the people of Algeria will be extremely excited to hear the sound piece, it is likely that “Palace Algeria” will not arrive there until late next year (Algerian law states that any outside music must be translated and re-recorded before being distributed in Algeria). It is our hope that this law can be circumvented by the smuggling of used VHS tapes on which the sound piece will be recorded. MICHAELmATICIAN will likely select a local Algerian VHS favorite: Star Trek III – The Search for Spock.

Please stay tuned for “Palace Algeria” by MICHAELmATICIAN. It will be made accessible at the Jeremy Shingles Blog. If you wish to have “Palace Algeria” on your used VHS, please contact us. Finally, from the aforementioned anthem: “That we are in revolt, whether to live or to die, we are determined that Algeria should live, so be our witness, be our witness, be our witness”

Resistance Has Met. [2.5.12]

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on 02/06/2012 by jeremyshingles

Resistance has met. All members were present this past weekend for the first quarter meeting. Although the location was changed unexpectedly, the meeting was quite efficient (the original location was a random Dallas sports bar, there was some sort of “game” that attracted countless citizens). Nevertheless, MICHAELmATICIAN has stated the objectives for the next quarter and the assignments to be completed.

Naturally, much of the meeting must be kept secret. However, here is a particular quote from one of the members: “Organisms that shed their dead shells will emerge with new ones, they move on. Our world is different, the dying and dead portions remain present and in use while the new ones emerge. We need only to look at payphone booths and VHS tapes to see the truth. Digital media have engulfed our realities, but the previous physical forms remain present.”

Messages of the Resistance and of MICHAELmATICIAN will be transmitted and recorded in any available form. We embrace the physical and the digital forms, but always in the most secure and economical ways. We are from and very much apart of the dying portion of this reality. We embrace the new portions yet resist the destruction of their previous forms. We will learn to see the Michrotron.

DeDonde Inc. Acquires Copyrights:Major/Minor

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 02/03/2012 by jeremyshingles

DeDonde Inc. continues to gain control over various sectors of the entertainment industry this year. Within the music industry, DeDonde has so far copyrighted both the major and minor scales as well as the perfect fifth. It is believed that DeDonde plans to use these rights to gain profits from any and all uses of their acquired musical scales and intervals. In early January, DeDonde reportedly received payment for use of the minor scale in the song “Moves Like Jagger”, which equalled 18% of the total royalties from the song. The respective music artist has not commented about the payment to DeDonde Inc. Many critics have also questioned the meaning of the song’s lyrics and the scope of its popularity.

The implications of a large multi-national corporation like DeDonde Inc. holding copyrights to musical scales and intervals are innumerable. Secondary schools and Karaoke Bars must now agree to pay the 18% flat rate the DeDonde Inc. anytime their scales or intervals are used, including inversions and alterations. It is predicted that by the end of July 2012 DeDonde will have rights to C# and most likely “Drop D” tuning.

MICHAELmATICIAN has stated that all citizens should fight against the legal enforcement of any music-related payment to DeDonde Inc. based on copyrights of musical note sequences. He has also requested that “Drop D” tuning be  avoided immediately.
