about

Ice Cream Vendors Westmont

The Ice Cream Vendors (ICV), made up of longtime pals Jon Kostal and Greg Barnett, is not just a musical duo but a mysterious life force. Those familiar with Jon and Greg know that boy meets girl lyrics and verse/verse/chorus clichés are simply not in their genetic makeup. Defying classification, ICV examines its subjects through a sometimes-surreal lens, but always with fondness and curiosity. ... more

Track Name: Beta Data
I keep time with a binary clock
Behind my firewall my digital lock
Insert emoticon here
Inert interaction sphere

Beta Data, Beta Data
Inert interaction sphere

I watch time from my cubic air lock
Inside my mind in control of the dock
Exert ample effort here
Consumed by a virtual fear
I'm bluetoothed I'm buried in my phone
I can't stop - ya know I'm in the zone
Internet based tangible dream
802.11g

Beta Data, Beta Data
Inert interaction sphere

Bit crusher is crushing the bits
Delete that beta data
Loop it, don't gotta move it

Radiation echoing in my head
If I didn't know better I could be dead
But in here I can see so far
In here I'm an avatar
Track Name: He'll Yes

He you Yu know

I will let Yu know
When it's time to go
Stan jumps from airplanes
That's too hard to say
Would Yu tell me why
Why Yu is a guy
It confuses me
Could you speak more simply

Is it Yu who isn't me
I know that Yu isn't me
Does Yu know Ken OP?
Queer as a Stan you be
W - X - Yu - Z

I
I under
I under Stan
I under Stan Yu

When does under Stan-ding
Mean Yu understands?
Life can be demanding
Listen to our plan
A wise man never once said
Y O U is Y U
Learn to speak and spell and read
Don't you know that babies are not edible?
They're plastic!

He

He will yes
He'll yes!

Yu'll know - And he likes me too

He Yu will he'll know you yes you do!
Track Name: Bacon House Bacon Man
The bacon house
there is a man
of bacon from
a frying pan
His favorite shirt
a tunic plaid
passed down to him
passed by his Dad

He cries to the heavens
on the year of the pig
Am I a bacon or not a bacon
why not a car or a fig?
Bacon House, Bacon Man
Bacon says "I am what I am"
But what's that?

He watches birds
they're watching him
They bacon watch
from the pan's rim
By the pan's whim
Be cooked in scotch
Whiskey Slim Jim
May slur his words

He runs for the office of the president's suite
He's popular with scrambled eggs and toast made of wheat
Bacon House, Bacon Man
Bacon says "Why not eat spam?"
But what's that?

Into the house
a stranger came
wearing a mask
but not afraid
was bacon man
for he is crisp
and has a plan
to blend in this

The Bacon House
The Bacon House
The Bacon House
The Bacon House

Bacon house bacon man
does whatever bacon can
Bacon house bacon man
Fakin bacon is a sham
Track Name: Other People's Glasses
Upside down, round brown and big
I just keep on searching
Inside is out, outside is in
It just isn't working for me

I need some glasses
Glasses that fit me
And make me look good
I need some glasses

Hey! I lost a pair of glasses
Can you help me find them?
Do you have a lost in found?
Yes! Can you describe them?
Can you paint a picture in my mind of what they're looking like?

Lenses made of glass - frames made of not glass

Falling, falling off my face
They won't seem to stay in place
Pointy frames like wings on my head
I went to the high school to see my friend Ben
Someone put some glasses in his garbage can
Would this be the pair? The pair that I wear?
No it won't!

Upside down, round brown and big
I just keep on searching
Inside is out, outside is in
It just isn't working for me

I need some glasses
Glasses that fit me
And make me look good
I need some glasses

Glasses round on the ground
Pick them up put them down
Glasses found safe and sound
Need them not but I like the look!

I need some glasses
Glasses that fit me
And make me feel good
I need some glasses
I need some glasses
I need some glasses
Track Name: Jim
How many Jims can you fit in a basket
Why would I put all my Jims in a basket
How many Jims can you fit in a basket
Hot air balloon floating up you can ask it
I want to borrow a Jim you put them where?
Sorry I don't have any Jims to spare
What do you want with my last Jim?
Shove 'em in my basket and you can ask him

Which word? J-I-M Not found

Get your own Jims you can't have mine
I need to save them for a later time
What do you need with all these Jims?
I just need them all whether they're fat or slim

B-A-S-K-E-T Not found

How many Jims can you put in a basket
Why would I put all my Jims in a basket
How many Jims can you put in a basket
Hot air balloon floating up you can ask it

I want to borrow a Jim you put them where?
Sorry I don't have any Jims to spare
What do you want with my last Jim?
Shove 'em in my basket and you can ask him

Which Word? G-Y-M Not found

49

Wrong, try again

49

That's incorrect. The correct answer is 49.

My name is Jim and I want to be
Far away from where anyone could put me
With a Jim and Jim in a basket makes three
Just shut up and get in the basket

Jim is getting drunk when he drinks from a flasket
Celebrate with Jim when he's up in the basket
The world is spinning fast on the edge of the basket
Pay respects to Jim when he lays in a casket
Track Name: Co-Shaper
Welcome to Fantasy Land
Run your fingers through the purple sand
Take my hand it's fantastic
How did we ever get here?
Am I sure that I want to be here?
Can Yu hear the sound that I hear?

I do not hear the sound you hear
What is the sound that you hear?

Resonating in the wire
Burn in the fire that's taking you higher
The winter chill is outside
But you watch the fight from ringside
The winter melon seems to tell me
Though it seems in the summer heat
Everything is not as it seems

Hanging by the thread of a disingenuous surreality
Behind a misty veil crystal eyes see through the stale smoke of this duplicity

Be the co-shaper of this world with me
Anything you want your eyes to see
Render every surface into me
Running at the mind I'm happy
Bring your thoughts closer to the sound I hear
The rushing blood pounding drums inside my ear
The ringing burns what can get my mind to clear
Can you help me control what I fear?

I do not hear the sound you hear
What is the sound that you hear?

We come from Fantasy Land
No one knows what we had planned
If I'm mad it's fantastic
Why don't they ever think so?
Is this all a dream? I don't know
I'm drowning in this world below
Track Name: Superboom
Superboom! Super sonic
Boom boom boomerang
Gin and tonic Yin and Yang
Oh yeah, I'm the funky leader in the think tank
Superboom, superboom, superboom
Nicknack gonna give 'em all back
On 8 track like Shackman
Get my bass and amp back
Put a little rhythm like:

Don't you just know it
Grass you can grow it
How do we go about it?

Interstellar space in a rocket ship
Take a sip
Shootin' from the hip say
Superboom, superboom, superboom

Point me in the direction that you want to go
In the rain, hail, sun, snow
No I'm not a mailman - but I will deliver
What you say, what you got on me
Isn't nuthin' so whatever!

Superboom super sonic
Stitch in time uberphonic
Feel the rhyme and rhythm on it
Yeah you know the gist about it

Yes boom we know it
Lawn you can mow it
Now we can show it to Yu
Superboom!
Track Name: Look at the Balloons
Look at the balloons, now what?
Look at the balloons, what now?
Look at the balloons, now what?
Now what? Now what?

Red, purple, yellow, green
Translucent memories
Taking me back to the day
The day that I lost everything
Purple, green, yellow, red
What have I got in my head?
Now what? Now what?

Look all around, what do you see?
Hear what I say, are you listening?

House with a tire swing
Car for driving to the thing
I have no accent
Hey do you remember me?
I sat by Yu in history
Are you from German?

The thing I cannot get into is locked
The locked thing I can't get into is cold and dreary
I guess it's just as well it's all the same
The change will do me good
The change will do him better

Look all around, what do you see?
Hear what I say, are you listening?

Small apartment busy street
Walk to places with my feet
Talk like New Yorkers
Doing business from my pad
Nothing like I ever had
Science fiction novelist

(Jim's Tibetan singing bowl)

Da da da da da da writer's block!
I wish that I could figure out what I was thinking
Pizza, Chinese or Italian?
I wish that I could figure out what I was eating

Look at the balloons, now what?
Look at the balloons, what now?
Look at the balloons, now what?
Now what? Now what?

Book on Scientology, found it at a library
(Scientology)
Covered up by dust bunnies, is it fate or destiny?
(Is it right for me?)
KFC or Mickey D's? Taco Bell or Burger King?
(Where did I put my keys?)
Pizza Hut or Chipotleee? White Castle is now Walgreen's
(What has become of me?)

Found out all about Thetans
Does it happen now? Does it happen when?
Yu can call me Sven, I'm not from Japan
Clearly I'm from Svedish!

Scientology is fine
I think I'd rather write about a science fiction
Character who lost and found his keys
Went back in time to outer space reincarnated

Look at the balloons, now what?
Look at the balloons, what now?
Look at the balloons, now what?
Now what? Now what? Now what? Now what?
Track Name: Halloween Hee-Haw
Scarecrows and hobgoblins
Witches, ghosts, and fear!
This is what we've waited for
On this day since last year

Unexpected scary things
Are new this year you say
Here comes hee-haw donkey
with his bag of candy hay

Knock Knock Trick or Treat
What do we have here?
A pirate, a princess,
A ghost and a vampere

What's that hiding in the shadows
Back behind you all?
It looks like a donkey!
(hee-haw)

Here he comes he's the Halloween Donkey
Playing tricks he eats your salt water taffy
Where did he come from? Nobody knows
From this year forward that's how Halloween goes

Donkey scary grey and hairy
Beady glowing eyes
Frightens all my friends and I
Wearing no disguise

Hey, you donkey
What gives you the right?
Taking all the candy from these
Kids on Halloween night

Lucky Donkey candy dropsy
Kiddies run from me
Tricky-treaty Clopsy-feety
Hee Haw Hee Hee!

Here he comes he's the Halloween Donkey
Playing tricks he eats your salt water taffy
Where does he come from? Nobody knows
From this year forward that's how Halloween goes

Next time Halloween comes 'round
You know what not to do
Hold on to your candy and
Stay clear of petting zoos

Candy Donkey Happy Tasty
What more donkey need?
Munchy Crunchy Scrumptious Chunky
Next year donkey feed!
Track Name: 411101 (More Dog Barks)
Take the number 4 to the moon at 11:01
If you listen to your dog, you're not the only one
If we left it at just this, this would be a dumb song
Yu should bring your dog along, don't take the bus alone

Me and my dog cruisin' to the moon at 11:02
Keep the sun at my back and the gum off my shoe
We're on schedule - we're right on track
Space station getaway, one way ticket ain't coming back

Stepping out to walk on the moon at 11:03
Take my Loopee out to poop and what do I see?
There is no moon suit for him, there's just one for me
In the vacuum of space he is so hungry

41 101
41 101
41 101
41 101

He ate a whole cantaloupe on earth but now on the moon
He's eating all the cheese, it'll all be gone soon
It's a satellite gone wrong and he planned all along
The end of human travels to the moon and beyond

Dog barks, more dog barks
Track Name: Bullfighting in the Dark
Bullfighting in the dark
Francesca watches anxiously
This matador who's tangoing
With a bull he cannot see

Bullfighting in the dark
It's a special game at night they say
What does it matter? I win either way
I beat the bull I get the girl

Then reality sets in
I bet the Yankees wouldn't win
Though I don't understand the rules
The bet will make it interesting
The game is interesting
But either way I'll go to brunch with Francesca

Joe DiMaggio's at bat
Look! The pitcher threw a fast one
DiMaggio shuts his eyes
He's bullfighting in the dark

Francesca watches anxiously
DiMaggio the mambo king
He saunters to her silently
It's time to place your bets!

This you must accept
Heads I win the bet, tails you lose the bet
Which one will you get? Don't be so upset
Brunch you still will get

(Pancho Sanchez speaks)

Bull fighting in the dark
It's a special game at night they say
What does it matter? I win either way
I beat the bull I get the girl
I beat the bull I get the girl!
Track Name: Zap
Video games I'm digitizing
Never the same I'm realizing
Video games they get the best of me
What can I say? This is my destiny

Hiding deep underground
Where do we go from here?
A score that'll get me crowned
I'll need a lot of beer - plug me in!

Colors around me it's so astounding
Stuck in a hole where do I go?
1-Up is helping, or am I melting?
I do not know

Worlds colliding, the joystick is sliding
Buttons A and buttons B - what do they mean to me?
Quarters running outside is sunny side up and down the stairs from people everywhere it's at my score is 400,024 hours with no sleep but I am wide awake

Video games I'm digitizing
Never the same I'm realizing
Video games they get the best of me
What can I say? This is my destiny

When I was underground
I drank a lot of beer
I flipped the game around
The championship is here if someone cares

For my score and nothing more

What would you do for the ultimate score?
It's not a game it's a lifestyle for sure
I'll win the championship on my own
Eating and sleeping and living at home

Video games I'm digitizing
Never the same I'm realizing
Video games they get the best of me
What can I say? This is my destiny

None of the sponsors see
The legend that I will be
When the world comes around
You know where I'll be found - down underground!

For my score and nothing more....
Track Name: Look at the Balloons
Music and fireflies are two things I hold dear
But I can't remember what time or what year
Shadows so close by my feet
Stretch hauntingly into the street

Where I go they follow me longingly, longingly

Daily engaging the cracks on the wall
(I cannot count them all)
Feeling confused as I try to recall
(Is my name Paul? Is it Paul?)
Patterns enhance my dementia
(11, 22, 33, 44)
Masking a genuine lack of attention
(Observing the pretty lights)

Open your eyes! Open your eyes!
And Look at the balloons
Now what?

People all around me, the train conductor calling,
"27 more stops to go!"
Then I thought about my destination
And then I though about my destination

Where I go they follow me longingly, longingly

"Sorry sir, but this is the end of the line"
Orange juice with my bacon and eggs would be fine
Are you from German?
Then from the corner of my eye
Are you from German?
Horseshoes is a really fun game
Now what?

Look at the balloons
Now what?

Hours are passing
(Wears it away wears it away wears it away)
The sun fades to gray
What do I think that I might do today?
(But I can't remember what time or what year)
Then melodies arise in the distance
And fireflies begin to dance with persistence

Open your eyes! Open your eyes!
And look at the balloons
Now what?
