Analysis of a CD Cover...?

OK, I'm being trite. I admit it. I'm probably using this post to hopefully gain some sort of web ranking. So we have Exhibit A: The cover of the Halfing Pumpkins' first single off Zeitgeist, "Tarantula." As you can see, it definitely is in the "spirit of the time" (the English translation of the German word 'zeitgeist'). You know, I'm not going to use her name in the body of this entry. (See the post labels.) The only thing that might be passe is the Blackberry phone. We all know it should be an Apple iPhone. Maybe Miss Heiress will receive said Apple iPhone as a release present. Who knows?

Anyway, here's the Sm-sm-sm-sma-Smashing Pumpkins' first single (post-reformation), "Tarantula." It rocks. It does. I like it. And to be fair, their new second guitarist and chick bass player ('cause Corgan loves him the ladies playin' the bass) are really good. This is a montage from their first show back:



I have to mention that they played this song in Paris. Whether or not they stayed at the Hilton is up for the really obsessed to find out.

Oh yeah, the mushroom cloud in the background of the single cover. That's obvious, or oblivious...you decide.

Jason Loya & Ryan DeRamos "Heart Attack"


Negatrude and Ryan DeRamos. The origin of the name "Society of Gloves" can be traced to the project I did before this video, but this is the first time you can actually see what they were...before I took it as a band name: The Society of Gloves. However, you can see that my brother Jon was in the original "story" Society of Gloves AND is currently in the rock band Society of Gloves.

Jeffrey Champ "Hyperspace" / DeRamos.org

Please visit www.deramos.org. It leads to all the things I'm interested and involved in: Mutiny Universe, the Society of Gloves, and something new that'll debut in July - DeRamos.org's Daily Chord. Stay tuned for that. Thanks.

(As of this writing, deramos.org - without the www. - doesn't work. We'll see if I can figure this out.)

Oh, yeah. Video:

The song is "Hyperspace" by Jeffrey Champ...and the film is called "Cleaning Service." Directed by yours truly, "Cleaning Service" stars my mom and my friend John Ingles (DJ John X of KSPC FM). It also includes a cameo "appearance" by my brother...etc., etc.
