Picture if you can... a world with unnecessary dramatic... pauses... where... every word is given an unnecessary cadence of weight... a world in which handsome baritone men... provide narratives for events that are as reasonable as they are unreasonable, as short as they are long, and as drawn out and droning as the narrator feels necessary to convey a sense of... tension and... unease. I am, of course, speaking of..... The Remix Zone.
So, for those of you who have never heard of The Twilight Zone (or maybe those traitors over at The Outer Limits), it is probably the best-written TV show and transcends Halloween as a date and passes into a round-the-year delight (specifically around New Year's on the Syfy channel). But that was THE inspiration for this album as the tracks were more of "Question what you know of reality" as opposed to "BOO!" of Candy Corn I. And, let's be real here, what's a horror movie without a sequel?
The sequel is a necessary extension of the horror genre, and the moment I was done with Candy Corn I... Candy Corn II: The Sequeling! (Is that a word? I like to think I made it up, but if it predates me, lemme know.) So now, I'm already thinking of the overblown trifecta that will be Candy Corn III: YoshiBlade Goes to Hell... Then Realizes It's a Vacation from His Normal Life and Refuses to Go Back.
So, in all seriousness, I hope everyone likes what I cooked up and thank djp, Larry, Gario, Stephen & Bryan Kelly, Abigail Hope Endsley, and VinnyMac for giving me the time, the tools, and the talent to get Candy Corn II out! And thank you (yes, YOU) reading this for taking the time to listen!
