HUMAN FILTH! BOW DOWN FOR MY 2016 YEAR-END REVIEW!
I'm given to understand that many of you squishy humans are displeased with a number of events this past year. Well, you can take comfort in the fact that I, The Mighty Kraken, will soon rise from the depths to send all of you to oblivion! YOUR MOISTENED DOOM AWAITS!
I forced my pathetic human minion to do my bidding in a number of ways this year...
And, on top of all that, he made a spiffy new shirt for covering your shivering human torsos. BUT THEY WILL PROVIDE NO PROTECTION FROM MY TENTACLY WRATH!
NOW GO ABOUT YOUR DISGUSTING HUMAN BUSINESS IN 2017!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Or so they tell me. Down here in the ocean, things look the same as ever; wet. Which is just how I like it. While I'm sure turkey and candy canes and elves on shelves are cool and all, I know that not all of you human scum are into the whole saviour's birthday thing. As a massive sea monster, I understand, since, compared to all of you, I am already pretty much a god anyway.
With that in mind, here is a little something about what we non-believers do on Christmas...

Pacific Rim is the sad tale of human filth refusing to die when ordered to by their sub-aquatic, other-dimensional betters. It is truly heartbreaking. Here's a song about it...

Survey Time! Tell me what you want me to write a song about, and in what style.
(You may need to give it a minute to load.)
I am thrilled to announce my collaboration with Australian Geek Pop sensation Meri Amber.
We wrote this together over the Interwebs just after my dinner one day, which was simultansously just before her lunch the previous day.
I don't really understand how that works. It's some sort of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff. Or something.
Anyway, here's "Brain In A Tank."

Hey, look, I wrote a song! Because that's what I do. I don't see why you're surprised by that.
Anywhoo... it's about a wonderful place you should definitely visit: The Island Where the Floor is Lava.
You can watch the lyric video here.
Or you can listen to it here.
Or if you're feeling extra awesome today, you can buy it here.
If you missed my "Mixtape" cassette release party, do not despair!
You can watch three songs from it right here...

Upcoming show! ALBUM RELEASE PARTY!
The Mighty Kraken demands your presence at the release of his new cassette. THAT'S RIGHT, CASSETTE!
10 songs, including "Oh, The Places I've Been," "A Reptile Dysfunction," and the soon-to-be-a-massive-hit title track, "Mixtape."
His minion will be there to perform selections from the album as well as older classics and maybe even a couple of covers.
Special guest Kari Maaren will entertain you with hilarious songs of geekery on ukulele.
Don't miss this one or you will risk the wrath of the Kraken. And you don't want that because he's kind of a jerk.
Saturday, May 7 at 2pm <---- Note that this is an afternoon show
at The Social Capital Theatre (Upstairs from the Black Swan)
154 Danforth Ave, 2nd floor
Toronto, ON, M4K 1N1
This is going to be an all-acoustic show, so I'll be revamping some of my songs to fit that format.
I asked the Kraken which songs he wanted me to do, but he's too excited about Orphan Black returning to care right now. So I'm asking you. Which songs would you like to hear acoustified? Tell me via the survey below...
