about

Hal McGee's Microcassette Variety Hour is a 60 minute tape recorded from June 9 through July 5, 2012. A Beatnik bongo poem live performance, Monotron improvisations, a circuit bent Casio SK-1 jam, canjo and diddley bow instrumentals, sounds from my daily life, all in their mundane lo-fi glory. The track titles describe what you will hear! The original hour-long tape has been divided into 35 separate tracks. The volume levels of some of the instrumental tracks have been boosted a bit. Also included here are straight transcriptions of the two 30 minute sides of tape.

Track Name: Hal McGee and Mark McGee (with Jiblit Dupree) - Beatnik Bongo Poem For Action Research
BEATNIK BONGO POEM FOR ACTION RESEARCH

it is the 5th Anniversary Show of Action Research
June 9th, 2012
I will declaim a poem accompanied by a bongo player

Celebrate Action Research
-- research your action
-- act on your research --

Need a pet sitter?

Next time,
think about others...
before you do something wild like this

Visualize biological macromolecules.
Send "I am alive" ping to Canonical.
Wan.
Wan.
Wan.
Wan.
Wan.
Clutter-based desktop launcher
unbundling
and bundling
on the fly.

Concurrent net disco myth binding.
Sun unit base library.
Cute cleaner...
...and gutsy learning event.
Feisty wallpapers.

Minimal core of mono icon theme.
Trivial bundled libraries.
Cairo couch
Quetzal coriander
cream camaraderie.

Is that a part of the poem?

A taste of adult sorrow felt.

Untitled

Andrew: you really don't like using untitled?

Hal: not really
i think it's better
to come up with a name
that seems substantial,
that actually "seems" to say something...

Soft, friendly adjectives.

From complacent ignorance to action research.

Been Jammin'

Sensitive Protrusion

Real eyes maple survival bracelets.

let's use "action research team" as a basis, for now...

This business of action
and research
may sound complicated,
but in practice it is very natural.

Prolific specimen

Documented guidelines for one-handed action research

keep clicking the button

no!
do not click the button

Action research is the reason why i killed my parents over an xbox.

Do I look like I wanna put holes in it?

Team of action upon the research rostrum.

Do you want to cause trouble in Florida in the future?
Now THAT is what I'm talking about!

I realized much later...
that the acronym would be "art"...
which made me groan a little inside
It's been a difficult week for all of us
if you keep "the" in front of it it's "tart"

Action research is the reason i was shunned in my community.
the action research committee of DOOOOOOOOOOOM

A seasoning of reasoning.

The search. RE: Search.
Who could ever doubt action?
There is now tea in team!
i'm just mincing it
examining it...
pizza...
and nachos...
and wet guys...
and 433

Dada is the only thing that is keeping me awake.

Action Research is sometimes referred to as an STD.
the southern action research league
of extraordinary gentlecreatures
of the wilderness
living in peace and harmony
really flows off the tongue
acronym friendly
speaking of tongues...
Discouraging.

Hal: no, i was just being "dudely"
Andrew: i'm just making words happen
Hal: like...
ya know... dudely

Thanks! I hope to have full co...
There is no plan.

dude,
look,
Action Research is good because it's not too definite,
but ripe with possible meanings.
Can we leave yet?
me: and why lenny is wearing a labcoat
exactly!

This poem is damaging my property and destroying capital
If you care about language...
you shouldn't make any sense together
Delirium, puckered immoral, disordered that is

your re
your search
your you
your act
your ion
your on
your no
... pause ...
you no?
... pause ...
on search
on act
on you
... pause ...
you no?

Show us on this doll where Dada touched you.

If you've got something worth saying,
then just say it,
say it,
say it again.
I can't hear you,
because I'm not listening.

bumpity bump bump bump
Bumper Cars.
Bump!
Bumpers bumbping humpty dumpty

Dachshund Action Research and Education: "What a pair!"
My testicles, "what a pair!"
I'm testing staying out of this

Did you know a fact about MUNG BEANS?

strange...
that I had actually hoped...
that the comments would be relevant...
to Action Research...
and its history...
and its accomplishments...
and its shows

Unclear stipulations.
