☆ Day 9 of Aliveness ☆
In the past was the interstellar cyber premiere of the eagerly awaited Season 1 of Cosmic Pineapple. This surReality soap opera about life around Moon Magnet covers the rise and anticipated fall of the multiverse pop sensation Cosmic Pineapple as they battle Satan, mortality, social mores, basic hygiene, and jealous roommates in their quest to become even better at being the best. Led by Dr. San Wan Zini & supported by backup singer Borj Wa Ze Za Zini, Cosmic Pineapple strives for PolyGalactic excellence in spite of all the haters, which includes every single member of the despicable band Suspender Defenders. Seeing as how the two bands share a space house known as Moon Magnet, it doesn't make for a pretty picture, but it sure does make for some interesting drama! Season 1 of Cosmic Pineapple premiered irl at Alamo Drafthouse Sept 22nd and Sept 21st at Santa Fe's alien roller rink, Rockin' Rollers. Ben & Reed scored Cosmic Pineapple Season 1 with help from Kevin Netz and Mikey Smith. Cosmic Pineapple was written, directed, and starred in by Reed Fox & Derrick Bozich (who played synth on Moondance). Listen to our soundtrack here! And watch Cosmic Pineapple here on YouTube!

Here's a snippet from a companion zine of poetry I made while making this record. Enjoy!
Wonderful night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
All the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush
Can I just have one more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love
I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait 'til the morning has come
And I know that the time will be just right
And straight into your arms I will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can't hide
From the top, from the top of, from the top of the sky you let me down
