Cash Cow

Cash Cow

Cash Cow was suggested by a series of gigs I played at an Anthony Robbins conference. There were two things that struck me: 1) this was religion for the attendees – e.g. when he would speak the language of what amounted to tithing and 2) one of his central messages is that the people you are currently hanging around with are losers, and that you need to strive to be with the “creme de la creme”. So of course I started thinking about what Tony Robbins, L. Ron Hubbard and Pol Pot all have in common. It turns out: a lot! Add ’em all up and you get one super savior. Blue State Blues was recorded live. Oediplexpg: What can I say? It’s not easy working all this out in public.
