The Sun is Gonna Blow Up (Live)

Here’s a new video I’m putting up on my video page to change my image, since really, I am more of a rockin’ scientist. This song will be on a future album… if there is a future.

Hetero-Strike (And the Death of Proposition 8)

Proposition 8 is no more! In case you haven’t heard, a United States District Court Judge named Vaughn Walker has struck down Proposition 8 in California by ruling it unconstitutional. Judge Walker was quoted as saying, “The main reason for my decision was an awesome song I heard written by Rhune Kincaid. It was this great protest number called “Hetero-Strike” from his first solo album, Space Hell Sex Bunny. Coincidentally, the mp3 is free, or you can name-your-own-price so Rhune can afford to record more great songs.  I’ll provide links below!”

"I know some guys that I think are gay," Walker said. "And I'll be damned if they get shafted... by the government."

The judge continued his praise and went on to say, “It has the trappings of an 80’s pop-rock song with its driving electronic beat and cascading, yet simple lead guitar done in a rich reverb reminiscent of U2’s guitarist, The Edge. The lyrics are biting, and I heard that Rhune was once confronted by an angry Mormon. (Editor’s note: it’s true!) He also continues to donate proceeds from the Mp3 sales to the National Center for Lesbian Rights. What a guy!”

“You might be thinking that the NCLR doesn’t need that money anymore, but believe me, they’re still paying lawyers and shi’.”

It was quite the honor to have my song mentioned and described with such intimate detail by such an influential figure. He also included all the pertinent marketing copy! It’s also nice to live in a state that’s no longer endorsing bigotry. Sadly, the fact remains that even though it’s unconstitutional, the majority of voters actually did want to ban gay marriage. Poor form, California, poor form.

Hopefully, the ruling will be upheld by the Federal appeals… or someone will come to their senses and realize that the best solution would be to just abolish marriage altogether. No more marriage, no more fighting over who gets it.

This ruling is good news for sane people, but bad news for me. One of my best songs will soon be obsolete.  I’ll have to find a new topic for a protest song. Loyal readers, what’s pissing you off these days?
