New ‘murdered man’ album in March?

Posted in music, Press Release on January 31, 2008 by G Lopez

February is a short month crammed with two months worth of stuff. Here in Camp X-Ray we have double the interrogation, triple the physical discomfort and quadruple the psychological torture – and that’s just Valentines Day! Oh, I kid.

Heck it’s nothing. Not when you realize how many artists back in civilization are working their asses off making new CDs of original music in the month of February. Guess how many recording studios there are here Guantanamo Bay Prison? None. Nada. Prisoners on DEATH ROW in the US get recording studios, but just because these people think I’m a terrorist (I’m not), they’re like “no recording studio for you.” Is it fair? Of course it isn’t. But after four and half years of waterboarding you begin to ask yourself, “what is fair?”

“All’s fair in love and war”is a proverb in the public domain, at least I hope so. I don’t want to get sued by Proverb Inc. If I had access to a library I would look it up. All I have is a slow wifi computer that I traded for a promissory note of 9000 backrubs. So bear with me. I thnk it means that it’s okay to cheat as long as you’re a) fucking somebody or b) killing large groups of people. Cheating is down on the list. It almost doesn’t matter in the context of the kill/fuck paradigm.

Babies are born and people die. Bloggers who wanted to see what Afghanistan was like languish in steel cages in Git-Mo and the singer sings his song.

He sings it all night long.

Trying to figure out what the deal is with this crazy human race we find ourselves a part of, the singer bares his soul onto a hard drive via some brand of computer software the let’s him/her “sequence” the music in a way we can all enjoy.

But the music won’t exist until the end of February.

I wonder if I’ll exist until the end of February.


2 More Big Newses until the end of the year.

Great. Just Great. Here I am locked up in a secret prison until God knows when and wouldn’t you know it, two more brand new topical sketch omnibuses are going to be staged in a Hollywood Blvd. improv theater. This is one of the main things that suck about being locked up in gitmo, missing Big News. Every show is different, so if you miss one you FUCKING MISS IT MAN! I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to curse.  It’s all the torture I endure on a daily basis and also the general lack of hope.

“Big News” Moves To Sundays @10pm

Posted in Press Release on January 16, 2007 by G Lopez

Man, I sure wish I wasn’t all locked up here in Gitmo. If I had the freedom to come and go as I please, I’d sure as shit head up to Hollywood and see some live political sketch comedy. Reading a press release like this is just depressing because I know I’ll never get to see it. I hope it’s still running by the time I get out.
If I ever get out.

On January 14, “Big News”, IO-West Theater’s long-running current events satire, presented its first show its new time slot. Whether or not it was because the show is now free or that Sundays at 10 is much better time slot, Big News is clearly now playing to a bigger audience and the debut show was a resounding success. And since the world situation is such a complete mess, 2007 looks like it’s going to be a good year for the cast and writers who create a brand new multimedia sketch comedy show every week “ripped straight from today’s headlines.”

Talk about a facinating subject for a one act play. Do I remember those ads in the backs of newspapers? Do they still have them? Is my memory fading? Are there still newspapers? These kinds of thought spring through a man’s head when he reads a press release for a really amazing play that he can’t see because he’s locked up at Gitmo. Fuck I hate it here!



“Soundsville!” penetrates Hollywood’s shady demo recording industry of the not-too-distant past, with stories of businesses that operated in the gray-area of mail fraud by soliciting poems from everyday people, via tiny ads in the back of magazines.

Aspiring lyricists were flattered by the companies’ “expert appraisal” and subsequently hooked into recording fees with unfulfilled promises of career momentum.

Few heard the actual songs. However, today’s cognoscenti have rightfully praised the work of the cash-hungry musicians who recorded dozens of these fascinating musical snapshots of days gone by per session.

Soundsville is a place where session men lay tracks to their doom and poets and singers find that their recording fees pale in comparison to the many personal tolls of self-delusion.
George Liberace

The play previews two Saturdays: August 5th and 19th at 10pm at the IO-West, in the Andy Dick Black Box – 6366 Hollywood Blvd.
