Judyth Piazza chats with Shawn Hlookoff, Singer/Songwriter
If you have two ears and a brain that works 60 percent of the time, all the time, you can decide if you like something or not. Out of all the amazing music out there, paid off radio stations jam a select group of songs through a cluttered pinhole of over played garbage. Songs about ladies with lumps that shake there assess until their fatty smoking pimp throws them some bling, bling, are really starting to piss me off. It really grinds my gears when children under dress and over spend because of the sh*t they hear/see in media. Why does a 12-year-old girl need a Louis Vuitton bag, which costs more than a semester of her future tuition? Is it to hold her Paris Hilton Barbie?
My point is music is very powerful and influential on society. Some songs make us angry and force us to beat the living daylights out of inanimate objects, others make us think of that girl (or Guy for lady readers and people with homoerotic tendencies) we fantasize about before you go to sleep. My goal is to write songs that have some sort of positive message or meaning that gets ingrained in a persons psyche. I want to tap into the mind of someone who`s struggling through life and change their pessimistic view into optimism. I want my music to get inside the heads of all the dim-witted people, like the protesters who are sabotaging the funerals of fallen soldiers all over the United States.
I will do everything in my power to solve something without having to resort to violence or unnecessary conduct. But, before you pin me as a throwback to the psychedelic, love and peace era, Ill tell you if someone breaks into my home I`ll knock them out with whatever`s handy then perform my self proclaimed acupuncture technique on their spine, drag them out to their car, weld the doors shut and pump it full of poison gases!!! Obviously I`m exaggerating, but you get my point.
With peace comes love. I seem to have a few love songs kickin around in my little satchel of goodies and tricks. Love is the greatest treasure of all, yet it has no monetary value (GF bonus points). Truth be told the love song will never get old because young teenagers refuse to fall in love to the same songs their parents fell in love to.
I will use music as a voice for people who don`t have the power to get their voice heard, or to help all those unromantic bastards get some action. We exist to feel love, hate, frustration, happiness, sadness, pleasure, pain, jealousy, betrayal, loneliness, horniness etc, and those feelings fuel my writing, mostly the last one.
