Somebody once said that this song made them think of Sublime :) Take it for free, and let us know what you think of it- it's a demo version :)

Katie Lapinski was a 7th generation ping-pong pusher
And baby she told me, you that you can’t quite make a living,
But that that couldn’t stop her

Well, she was a slinger, and a beggar on the side
But she never lost her pride

Noooo Ohohoh
Better kept on the inside
Don’t you know? Ohohoh

And I ain’t saying that I ain’t sympathizin’
But when you look into my heart through my eyes and
You’re telling me, that I better get risin’

Well, maybe I’ve got a roll
And Maybe I’ll Play it

Well, Our lady, of 200th generation of
The Sister’s of Sarah
Well I can’t tell you just what she means to me
‘cause she ain’t gone just yet
But I’ve got some feeling, I’d better learn how to show

Or maybe she’ll never know
Or, maybe I’ll never know

And I can’t say that I can’t understand,
But when you look down to my soul through my hand, and
You’re tellin’ me, I should be just a bit more demanding,

Well maybe I’ve got to,
And maybe it’s time to,
And maybe I need to

yea guitar on this is sweet.
i would like to see some keys, preferably from an upright. i think it would fill any space well without loosing your raw sound. thats why i call for upright cuz a key board might sound a little out just cuz its tonal qualities are not as rigid as the upright with a mic. again this my favorite so far, but i have only got to a few so ill keep listening, looking forward to it!

Far out, man! Glad you dug the song, and great advice, I really appreciate it, I feel like getting other people's honest opinion is the best way for me to grow as an artist. Thanks again. -Shoham

I can see how it would remind them of Sublime, but for some reason I also thought of the Presidents of the United States. Me gusta!

Muchos gracias! Maybe the sily lyrics are PUSA-esque???

Yeah, like Sublime singing PUSA! Nothing wrong with that though ;P

Cool. Thanks. I think that it's just the angle on "Imps are all business"-- it would be easier to see if it were head on, I think. -Shoham

I am not sure if this is the newer polished version or not.

Your vocals seem very crisp in this one but I heard the ending and thought that it might be live.

As you know, I do like this song. I like the tune but really, I think that the vocals are really strong here.

The more I think about it, the more I think this is the cleaned up, dressed up, what ever you upped version. I hope I am right.

I like your voice without so much distraction. I think I would say that it is a strong mellow but sharp voice. There, I should start writing music reviews.... I have done such a good job here.

Talk to you later.

Thanks. I think that this is a polished version, though I am not in a position to hear it right now... Thanks-- when working with a band, not everyone knows how to listen to the singer, unfortunatley, so sometimes there's a lot of 'clutter'... :( IMportant for everyone to listen to each other and communicate in a band, not always a luxury that we are priviliged to have, unfortunatley...

I have this sense that there is something strange going on with you guys. You may set me straight if you like. I think that I have never heard your voice as clearly as that, before. I would say that I have a very, very, good untrained ear, Shoham. It is also selective. I really have to want to hear well before I can hear well. My, "Want or Give a sh__", ear tells me that your voice should be heard, crystal clear, when it is possible and practical. Another voice that I think is quite special is Lindsey, Interpret/Matt's friend. If the voice can cause one to fall in love then I am sure that I am in love. Speaking of voices. Our own Alice has such an unbelievable voice for a young and small person. She has put up some more visuals. You will like them.

I checked it out-- her new work is psychedelic for sure...! band life can be as complicated as relationships...

Here's another one you might like...: It's about a woman named Rahab from the bible. She was a prostitute who helped Joshua's spies get into Jericho.

I knew that you would like her stuff. I really think she is an amazing little woman, (I don't want her to catch me calling her a little girl. Could be trouble. On the other thing, I could sense something going on. You have been no where near yourself. In this realm, I know you pretty well. And, here, you have been out of sync.
I will check out your link. Ironic that I have been thinking about prostitutes, lately. One way or another, I am going to have sex one more time before I die........ I wonder if they have special ones that are for rookies? I thought you might get a kick out of the workings of my mind at this point so I figured that I would share and put a grin on your face.

Daryl C. Hill gave feedback to WalaWalaWala for “Like Dogs”:

I am five seconds into this piece and I am already hooked! Great guitar and of course, vocals. I have visions of you walking along a make believe path, probably in Alice's Younder Land. As you walk, the path is drawn in front of you. The elements of the path just appear and settle into place as line art. Then, as you approach those elements, they become colorized. As you leave the elements behind, they, first, loose their color, turning into line art again, then finally fading into nothing as you leave them behind you.dddllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllllll Ok, those four lines are courtesy of my falling asleep for a few seconds.

I am listening again, I love the intro, really, I do, and the tempo. Do you guy see the path being laid before you as you sing and walk??? Look carefully.


Oh, if this is only in Demo version, I would get it put on a CD so more people could enjoy it.
 May 12, 2011, 00:36 EDT
Thanks. There's a final version-- gotta see if I can find it. I'll post a rougher draft that I actually like a little bit better.

Send me a link when you post it, Ok? And.............. I fell asleep long after listening to the piece. I re-read my feedback and thought you might have gotten the wrong idea from it. It was the 4th night after a 3 day stint with no sleep. I did tell you that not too long ago, I was standing and fell asleep, didn't I?

So, I like the piece a lot. It didn't put me to sleep. I will look for a link to the rougher draft.

Lastly, I was expecting a comment concerning my vision of you and the animated path. What happened to that? Maybe you could make a music video.

Well, the above was not dubbed correctly. I took a bunch more photographs using similar parameters as used in, "Rich", that I seem to remember your liking it. Some came out pretty good. They make an interesting movie when you select them to have medium Icons and then thumb through them quickly in windows explorer. I am not sure of how to make a mini movie from stills but am thinking of trying to do it. The bulk would last only a few seconds so I don't know if it would be worth putting together.

I did put links up on my wall in facebook. Let me know if you have any confirmed bites from that area of facebook.

Now, Lastly. We need to get you a different profile image. I can't see you all very well and that bugs me. We could have you stand closer together, 2x2, with the front 2 kneeling or sitting down and the second 2 standing. What do you say, Shoham?

I agree with the comment about this one sounding like Sublime, but I think thats a good thing. I like the smooth feeling of it all. Nice jam.
