I Don't Gots No Wikipedia Page
If you knew me -- I mean, really knew me -- you'd know how much I adore a merengue version of a Kraftwerk song. But you don't know me. How could you? There is no Wikipedia page for Sippican Cottage.
But then again, what would it say? It's a brand of furniture! No, it's a guy, not a building. He once taught Frisbee at a state college, but now he writes flash fiction guaranteed to make you reach for the laudanum.
But wait! Don't answer! Sippican Cottage is a blog! NO! It's a guy that writes humor. He used to be a bass player, but now he publishes a faux newspaper in Uppastump, Maine. I'm beginning to think Sippican Cottage is both a dessert topping and a floor wax!
So I'm not sure I want a Wikipedia page, unless it's like the one Uwe Schmidt's got. Uwe Schmidt, AKA Senor Coconut, AKA:
Bund Deutscher Programmierer
DATacide (a collaboration with Tetsu Inoue)
The Disk Orchestra
Flanger (a collaboration with Burnt Friedman)
Geeez 'N' Gosh
Gon (a collaboration with Dandy Jack)
HAT (a collaboration with Haruomi Hosono and Tetsu Inoue)
Jet Chamber (a collaboration with Pete Namlook)
Lisa Carbon & Friends
The Lisa Carbon Trio
Masters of Psychedelic Ambiance (a collaboration with Tetsu Inoue)
Mike Mc Coy
+N (a collaboration with Victor Sol)
The Roger Tubesound Ensemble
Second Nature (a collaboration with Tetsu Inoue and Bill Laswell)
Surtek Collective (a collaboration with Original Hamster)
Now that guy could give my Wikipedia page a run for the money. It says here that "He is often regarded as the father of electrolatino, electrogospel and acitón (acid-reggaeton) music." Pretty sweet, that. But me? Moi? Don't say Sippi can't, because Sippi can compete with that. After all, I'm the father of Buddy Holly inflected Minecraft inspired kid-rock cover music; and I also used to sing That's Amore with dirty lyrics in a Beach Boys tribute band.
I will, however, struggle to ever top Senor Coconut's version of Riders on the Storm. But I'm young, and I'll keep trying. (Notice: At least one of the girls in following video forgot their shirt. I'm told some persons that I don't know object to that)
