Beyond Parody

What's Technossance Magazine? The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Rolling Stone magazine, or Bad Company. Bad Company are a rock supergroup. Lionheart Enterprises is a broadcasting and fabrication business in shambles.

Technossance Magazine is not your traditional magazine. It's more of a comic book written as a comic thriller. Sure, there are issues, but the "magazine" darkens with short stories and the non-linear account of Lionheart.

Beyond parody, satire is dead. The Strokes have their own space, shirts, and music and they're only one of the few dipshit artists that are rich. WOW Radio and WRICH Radio and AM 2200 played "dipshit artists" for years.

Wow, I'm not the Banana King. The Banana King takes its name from a line in On The Road by Jack Kerouac that emphasizes the importance of recognizing the insignificant moments in your everyday life. Jack was probably high on cough syrup when he wrote it, but that makes it even that much more special and real.

We rode into San Francisco and strolled through the streets. Remi's huge laugh resounded everywhere we went. "You must write a story about the Banana King," he said.

Jack's intention is no doubt offensive. Who would ever want to be king? Me, because somebody had to do it and there needed to be a network to spoof the network tyranny from the past. From 1956 to 1986, the big three national commercial networks in the United States were ABC, CBS, and NBC with few limited attempts to challenge them. I did it and what a hell of a time. But what a horror show.

I remember the hours of comedy and hours of radio when I was young. I watched The Cosby Show. I watched SNL with Eddie Murphy. I watched Tim Allen in Home Improvement. I listened to Larry King, Howard Stern, Chris Sheppard, Don Imus, John Derringer, Joanne Wilder, Kim Mitchell, and Weird Al, and I would listen to some of the strangest music and think this is really cool. When I turned older, I just wanted to entertain people, too. I couldn't admit I was writing the wrong way. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is over 100 years old, there had to be a station called LUCKY 108.9 where I could archive music production, some of it dates back to the beginning of the year 2000.
