House of Imp 36 – Christmas. Bah! In the end it’s just another day and a reason to make music

Christmas 2017 – Bill and Jen talk crap about Christmas – Well, kind of…


In the end, Christmas is just another day, another number in the calendar, and an opportunity to behead turkeys and turn off the radio. Jen and Bill have likes and dislikes and can’t resist letting you know what they think about overspending, Christmas obsession in general, a bit about great gifts for the visually impaired, and cardboard boxes.


Hotsauce in my Eggnog

Arranged and produced by Bill Babcock with help from
Andrea on drums and
Anton adding the bass.

It’s been an interesting year and we’re looking forward to an awesome 2018 with more disorganized podcasting, more Imp, more music, and even more conversations about things that may or may not matter.

Merry Christmas everyone, be it in joy or misery, it’s all good.

Until next year.
House of Imp – Out.
JennyK, Bill, and Imp – Staying away from live turkeys since Christmas.

JennyK and this sundered world – What’s happening?

It’s a new year. Now, let’s do it all again.

And so much more. This is my first post on Studio Chaotic since July of last year and I have no good excuse for that. But it has been busy and many things have come my way that I will tell you all about. But it will be in bits here and bits there. I am working currently on an album on
It is a blast, I get to write lyrics, and sing my heart out. Along with various other collaborations on Kompoz it fills my days. I will post new music right here, right shortly.

Instead of talking myself blue about what I’m doing, let’s see what’s immediate and current while getting a sneak view on what we are doing and where it’s at. So listen to Bill. And, if that drummer is you? Come talk to us on Kompoz.

Be awesome, happy, and always supplied with coffee.

Jenny, Bill, and Jordi

(I really don’t have time for this so, make it short and wake me up when I’m done. Thanks.)
 All the time. What happened to all of the time.
All the tomorrows I had lined up in my mind all turning to yesterdays wasted time.

Here we go.

I give you all of my days.
And every night I pay.
And when the morning comes.
Leave me alone.

(There’s nothing wrong with me. Honest.)
(Let’s hear it.)

And all the love,
(Ah yeah, maybe.)
what happened to all the love.
(Yeah, well.)
All of the fantasies hot to the touch in my mind.
(If you don’t ask, I won’t tell.)
All turning to silliness and naked crying.

What do I want?
I’ll tell you what I want.
I’ll show you what I need.
And if the morning would come, leave me alone.

(Yeah, that too.)
(For fucks sake.)

Lock up, close your eyes.
(it’s not getting any better.)
Now now, I’ll find my way.
Hold on, there’s still some time.
(Are we done yet?)
Wake me up when I’m wasted.

Hold on, I will sleep when I am gone.
Let them gnaw on my old bones.
Wake me up when I’m wasted.
Never mind that.

(Let’s just get wasted.)

I’ll tell you all my fears.
I’ll give you all my tears.
If telling drives me insane, leave me alone.

(Wanna break something break it good and hard. Good job.
Are we done yet?)

Lock up or leave, wake me when I’m done.
Take what you need, wake me when you’re done.
Maybe that’s what I need, wake me when it’s done.

(Are we done? We are done.
Pull that plug will ya? Now get the fuck out of here.)

And how did this happen?

Artist’s Notes
(By Project creator Kim Noble)

How The Dorks came into existence—the behind-the-scenes story:

Starting with two lyricists who have a bit too much time on their hands, Tracy led the charge in creating some lyrics that jumped off a hilarious page
and kept the project going with his tireless finesse! But neither of us could have ever imagined that James Fraser from the grand UK country and Jenny
Brennan from the even larger country of Canada would ever take this to such a level that left Tracy and I speechless… and that is quite a feat. Adding
in a chorus of fun crooners like Dave Scheuner (California USA) and Jerry Eriksson from Sweden, well, you’ve got one entertaining tune that left us all
rolling in the aisles. And, since Jenny’s mixing skills will leave you wondering if we really are all together live… let’s put it this way… none of
us will ever tell. 🙂 We truly hope you enjoy this one-of-a kind tune and be sure to be on the lookout for the revival of The Dorks coming to a SoundBlend
arena near you! 🙂

Artists notes

How did this happen? Really? 😀
(By co-producer, mixer, Dork JennyK.)

I don’t know. Some how I got sucked into a space time warp engine and got chucked out in an alternative universe where JennyK mixes spoon, mandolin, and cowbell. Was it possible?

Well, it happened. And it’s one of the most entertaining songs I’ve worked on. It’s a lesson in audio editing and mixing that I’ll never forget. I nearly killed myself laughing when I realized what a jug track was. The Dorks are real! The Dorks will be forever awesome and I’ll be there for the revival. Thank you thank you thank you very very very very much.

Some people say we’re two of a kind

And that we’d quite agree.

I’m yin, he’s yang There’s no denying

She’s peanut butter; I’m jelly.

The truth about all of this show

Is to set the record straight

We’re the type that’s clear to see

To separate us would be a mistake.


We may not be in our right minds

But it’s the only minds we have left

We may not be the thinking kind

It’s something you’ll have to accept.

When your bulb is not that bright.

There are few thoughts to regret.

We’d like to sing another line

But this is all we have left


Our mamas separated us at birth

The years completely froze.

We lived our lives in disarray

Until we found Kompoz. 🙂

So now we celebrate this truth

By writing down the rest

We call on you Our fans so true

To sing our Right Minds Left

Serrated – A Kompoz Collaboration Release!




And how did this happen?

I came across this on Kompoz and really digged it. As a somewhat closeted metal head I simply love this stuff and I followed its progress from demo to finished. But I guess it wasn’t quite finished and they were kind of looking for a possible second vocalist. Billy asked me if I was interested.

Really? Seriously? Hahah, yeah sure. Shitting bricks I did give it a tentative try and I loved it. Billy had a fairly specific vision of what he wanted and after a few tries I did get it just right. Those vocals were added as a second verse and I couldn’t be happier with the result.

The next metal track is I would say a couple of steps up from this and who knows what’s next. I’m finally doing something I always wanted to try but thought I’d never have the balls to try.

Singers talk about finding their voice. I may not have decided which of the styles I play around with is truly me, but I think this comes very close to what I want to do. Another tool in the toolbox and another bit of polish on the confidence.

Verse I:

Serrated blade, caress my skin, and slowly let your work begin

I feel the cool, I feel the warm, I see the red.

From blue to red I’ve heard it said, I see it now, it’s in my head

I have control, you have control, now we are one.

Each kiss from you is burning hot my head explodes and time is stops

it feels so good, it hurts just right, now I’m alive.

Serrated blade, a gift of love, a time for us to share our trove

of secret times and secret deeds the scarring skin.


Serration, caress my skin

Serration, you know my world

Serrated, each cut a gift of love

Serrated, signed in blood

Verse II:

I lift my shirt for you today, where should we go, where should we play

I want to feel your loving touch, I want to be

Lay yourself across my skin and let the loving time begin

bring out my juice, for I am ripe I’m here for you.

each little slice, each little cut, each little rip, each little tear

I know you care, I know you love, I know your here

I give to you, you give to me, it’s up to us that we agree,

I’m here with you, your here with me, let’s begin

Time is gone, and here is now, you let me flow, you show me how

I’m here for you, you do me right, don’t stop now

House of Imp 14 – This is August – Studio Chaotic summer special 2014

Neon and Plum - Budgies in exercise wheel.

Hey, there truly are other people in the world!


Besides inner demons and a pet Imp that is

Jen talks to Nick, Dave, and Thomas about their philosophy of life. We hear some music from Thomas, some wise words from Imp, get a glimpse into a workaholics small pleasures, and sense a somewhat hot temper from Nick.


Music in this episode is composed and provided by this guy:

Thomas Ewel a.k.a Explendidos

can be found on:

Facebook fan page

And of course on

Some of the music, not necessarily in order of playing, are:

Intro, composed for this episode.
Blues Brothers High on Crack – Acid House
I wanna meet the devil
Sirens sea

Reservations for errors. And I’m missing a title . Hell, there’s no helping it; you will have to check out all of Thomas tracks to find the one I didn’t name. Trust me, it will be an enjoyable search! I’m a fan.

A new format, a different approach.

In this episode I tried out three different ways to include other human beings in the podcast. Call it a test if you will. I learned alot along the way while producing this and it has been delay after delay. Never mind the doubts in my own head about what i’m doing. I do intend to include people, talk about stuff that interests me if noone else, and things could get interesting. I learned, technically, how to do certain things even if I didn’t pull it off this time, I learned a few important things. I am grateful to all my three victims for agreeing to participate in this amateur production. I hope I can bribe you again.

Thank you!

And listeners; Thanks for listening. Leave comments and all that stuff. I can be found by asking Mr. Google for Studio Chaotic and JennyK. Chances are you’ll find something I don’t want you to find.
