Strong Black Man I Can Do Anything is the first in a series of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 or so albums. The length of the series depends on how long I live.
To celebrate my release into the world, I am releasing this album. I will release an album every November 27 until I die.
Will I make music when I’m 60, 70, 80 years old?
Yes. I address this on the album.
Family Plot was released in 1976, when Alfred Hitchcock was 76. When Bleeding Edge was released two years ago, Thomas Pynchon—assuming he’s a real person, not a postmodern site of possibilities—was also 76. Toni Morrison, 84, released God Help the Child earlier this year.
I’m just now noticing slight similarities between the names Thomas Pynchon and Toni Morrison. Is Toni Tommy? I will lay out my theory in my first single of 2016. It’s called “Inherent Vice (of White People).”
Finally, my favorite artist, Woody Allen, still plays clarinet.
Allen once said, “I don't want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying.”
In lieu of not dying, I will achieve immortality through my words.
I present Strong Black Man I Can Do Anything, my birthday gift to me.
released November 27, 2015
