Temporarily, I got distracted from the task at hand: locating Michael McDonald
and checking up on whether he's Ok.
I got the notion that the artist known as gulpEpsh
(etc.; see below) might be worth checking into when I saw his website (UPDATE: which he made in collaboration with Catchpulse
), which I feel should be #1 on everybody's best of the internet list
Then when I found out he was responsible for the following track (previously posted by the tri-styli'd super-sleuth J. Clayton
) I became convinced that gulpEpsh
might have power enough to reveal Michael McDonald
's location:gulpass gulpass lululu - don't know track name
Gulpass gulpass lululu is another of his AKAs. He was kind enough to share with me a list (presumably incomplete):
"I have a lot of names. For example...
DJ bOOth,gulpass vegass gulpassion,gulpass gulpass gulpass,
I bought several CD-r's from gulpEpsh
, from which I'd like to share a couple mpfrees.
Suffice it to say that this particular consumer choice yielded more power than for which I would have even dared to hope.gulpEpsh - don't know track title (from the CD-r ccppgg)
This track came from one of the pair of CD-r's being morphed back and forth in the gifford below:
They really look like this. Both CD-rs came in colorful cases (pink & yellow), both depict a hooded figure with an inverted triangle face (the triangle the same color as the case), and both depict the same string of consonants, with the one running in the reverse direction of the other.gulpEpsh
also included in the package he sent me several small scraps of paper onto both sides of which he'd drawn, which I have giffordized.
This one has a lil triangle face person with a talking microphone:
These 2 giffords originated in the different sides of the same paper scrap.
Also I boought 2 cds from an entity called Gellov qllo, described by gulpEpsh
" ) - OVe-NaXx
AKA Human power in the flesh
. Dunno if this next mpfree is a +OVe-NaXx
or a -OVe-NaXx
track, but it showcases the gulpEpsh
beatboxing style quite well as well as some nice bass throbbing.
Gellov qllo - track name also unknown (from a CD-r onto which the string "movo" is written)
This is my favorite drawing that he sent. It has what I believe to be, based on beak morphology, a beret-wearing pelican whose beak connects to the dripping nib of a fountain pen. And it's below the Coco Channell logo.
You can buy some CD-r's from gulpEpsh
too. If his website is offering his music on sale, it is not apparent to my monolinguistic ass. But you can buy shirts there. And you can buy CD-rs by emailing him. Here's the list of buyable CD-r's he gave me:
"▼ggppcc ( solo works ) /$15
▼ccppgg ( solo works ) /$15
qllo 1( OVe-NaXx ± gulpEpsh ) /$8
qllo 2( OVe-NaXx ± gulpEpsh ) /$10
▼DXNKIN' DONUTS ( FRX ± gulpEpsh ) /$10
▼A(B) ( NANI ( ZUINOSIN ) ± gulpEpsh ) /$10
▼MIDI_sai ( our party ) compilation ( theme:gabba ) /$25
-include:TOE CUTTER, DJ Rainbow Ejaculation, HARD OFF,
DODDODO, OVe-NaXx, KA4U, gllp ( mine ), UNURAMENURA etc..."
I bought the 1st 4 on the list and they are fantastic. Email him at gulpepsh at hotmail dot com, and tell him what you want to order. You can paypal the money to his girlfriend Doddodo
Here is a picture of the two of them barfing together:
Hopefully this will empower me enough to find Michael McDonald
, because if not I may need to get some outside assistance.
