Chop Up Video: 06 APR 2011

In this video, I perform a composition of mine in which I took a perfectly lovely American folk song and substituted lyrics to it that were critical of the President. Better still, I was only about 12 years old at the time I wrote it, and the president in question was Jimmy Carter. Listen and gain insight into the adolescent mind of Carl Wilkerson as I expose the underside of the Carter administration over thirty years too late. (BTW, Carter was a nominal prof at Emory when I was taking classes there for my MBA, which I did receive, thank you. He did speak to my International Perspectives class one day at the request of the instructor, Dr. Jeffrey Rosensweig. This knowledge should help you to assess the full seriousness of my posting a composition featuring such pithy and subtle lyrics.)

Beat Warming

Pattie and I attended a housewarming earlier this year. Some friends of ours were moving into a new apartment, and to celebrate, guests were invited to bring some sort of music performance or poetry to share with the group. I found the whole thing to be very Beat, and I called my edited video of the event "Beat Warming."
