Today was special.

I am so moved by these songs I just have to share some thoughts.

DAVID DUCHOVNY NEW YORK LISTENING PARTY DELIVERS

@waltfrasier @lauricef @duchovniacs

David Duchovny was joined on stage today with Pat McCusker, Colin Lee, Mitchell Stewart and Sebastian Modak, interviewed my Monique McQueen (Great Job moderating the Q&A) as we all got to listen to the entire new album, EVERY THIRD THOUGHT.  The listening party attendees all left feeling expectations were surpassed.

Kerry Lee announced the day’s activities while Sam Platt played DJ, throwing down three tracks at a time with question and answer sessions in between.

With all the songs, David feels he’s writing country songs, because that’s how he sounds alone with his guitar. Monique says these songs pass the “campfire test”. You can break them down to singers and guitar and they hold up.

SET ONE

First up was HALF LIFE. Laurice remarks that the tempo seems a bit livelier – More energetic. This was the first of many that seemed ready for radio play. At the very minimum, ready for movie soundtrack. On tour, David will joke this song is about science. “Unconditional Love Decays….”.

David says he had a David Bowie feel in mind orginally.

The words are a bit sad. Half Life appears to refer to half of your life los tin a break up but leaving with you empty – “with nothing” – inside. But the music driving the story is also about moving past and picking up the pieces and working though the worst of it.

For those that have heard this song on tour, you are in for a treat. The guys (Pat, Colin, Mitch, Sebastian and other – Hanna rocking some strings, etc.) really had some freedom to play. If you listen carefully, the music is almost playful with subtle rhythmic and countrapuntal flourishes hiding – coyly sneaking through – beneath the surface of lead vocals, intros and bridges.

I had a question about the writing of the song. When the song is live, David appears to want to take the middle of the chorus to a V chord (B chord in the Key of E). David will often drop G# at the end of the word indivisible to a F# which would imply in some he wants the chord to go to the B (D# F#). In most music a phase will end with a strong V-I (5-1). My question was “Did the song original move to a B chord there? I feel David is trying to pull the band down to a 5 chord”

David responds, “You think I’m dragging them down?” (Laughs)

Pat, Colin and I discussed among ourselves about the music theory. David makes a cat sound and says “perhaps you fellas should take this outside…” Long story short we had WAY TOO MUCH FUN TODAY.

EVERY THIRD THOUGHT in contrast is a tad slower and more in the pocket from the live version we have heard the past two years – originally heard by fans in Europe 2016. The arrangement is slightly more exposed, revealing some hip rhythmic hits and vocal harmonies. This was always my vote for the album’s title track. David was pushing for Strangers (in the Sacred Heart).

The final song of the first set was MAYBE I CAN’T. We need this album TODAY to fully digest the new stuff in depth.

Set Two

– Strangers in the Sacred Heart
– Mo’
– Someone Else’s Girl

All three of these songs are known to us from live concerts over the past two years. All three are similar and familiar, but each had their moments where, again, the band got to play. Especially Someone Else’s Girl, which David attributed to Pat from start to finish, taking the lead on the arrangement.  This is the “feel good” track with it’s bouncy reggae feel. Love me some Pat! Laurice says this may be her favorite tune on the album.

David recounted his story of writing STRANGER while gigging in Paris last year, tying his own father’s story to the folks praying for strangers at Sacre Couer. We love Hanna Reid’s violins. Laurice calls it baroque pop, mixing in the classical sounds with the pop rock. If you have not caught Hanna, live, find her in your town. There were also some cathedral chimes and other interesting sounds that helped painted the picture.

David says MO is about over consumption with influences of Fleetwood Mac.MO is familiar, but you can tell David and the band put a lot of work into cleaning up the arrangements and kicking out near perfection. Pat has a very sweet guitar solo I think fans are going to dig.

David went further to say, songs are less of a statement, and more of a cloud, “what ever that means.”

Q: What was the process of writing this album, compared to the first?
A: David said it was more collaborative. Sebastian (Percussionist) said there are a lot more chances, especially with percussion. The other guys elaborated on finding a safe place to speak up and out for ideas.

Q: Does doing all the music and concert touring feel surreal?
David: I wouldn’t say surreal. No, it feels good. If feels… (Audience supplies “Organic” – giggles) Why do I keep seeing that “Organic” in quotes (Finger quote gesture).

“ORGANIC” Is that a meme?  David asked the band.

David forgot “ORGANIC” comes from his answer from a previous Facebook Q&A and it stuck. There were unasked questions of possible double meanings in the following looks but it was left at that.

SET THREE may have been my favorite, with two new songs that blew my mind.

WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS started and right away the whole crowd is bobbing heads, tapping feet. It is an amazing song. About half way through I lean over to Laurice, “I think this is my new fave.” Angry Blues Rock song was also the favorite for some of the band.

SPIRAL is a song written by Pat and Colin. David admits a little jealousy when folks say this is their favorite tune from their album. Not sure if it was my third homemade pineapple vodka (homemade by restaurant, I did not sneak in booze), being caught up in the moment, or the song was just that amazing, I started to tear up. I leaned to Laurice. Not hearing me, she shoves pen/paper in my hand. I write “FUCKING AWESOME!!!” She exclaims, “you wasted space on her diminishing note paper space.” The moment was otherwise beyond words.

The set was rounded by another concert tour favorite, Roman Coin. Again, like some of the earlier tunes, this was just a cleaner, better mixed version of the song we have come to love.

SET FOUR

SET FOUR has two new songs to us and one that is relatively new, after David debuted Marble Sun in Vancouver last fall.

JERICHO is a bit sad. This tune hit close to home with Laurice as David discussed it’s connection with his father. When the album releases I will give a more in depth review of the song. Hearing it for the first time, I was just taking it in.

LAST FIRST TIME to be fair did not get my full focus and attention. Mainly because I was reflecting deeply on the third set. Again, this was the first time we’ve heard this track and I would like a second listen before further discussion.

MARBLE SUN is one of the new songs that has popped into my head often in the past months since Vancouver. My only criticism today was the percussion track seemed to overpower the song. This is a simple mix issue. The song otherwise is a perfect end. I am not sure you call this a concept album. Every song works as a single, but there are some stylistic themes.

David said this song was an idea from Colin and many ways the most collaborative song on the album, and perhaps his new favorite.

IN CONCLUSION – To put today into perspective

Most came to HELL OR HIGHWATER because of love for David’s work as Fox Mulder or Hank Moody. At least half of the fans at early concerts didn’t even know they were attending an actual concert.

“AN EVENING WITH DAVID DUCHOVNY? What is he doing, Stand-Up Comedy” –this is a direct quote from at least three people I encountered during the first year of concerts.

When I first heard the early release of WHEN THE TIME COMES, I was working on some contracts and Laurice was playing the track. The first lyric I really heard was “Jack and Jill, ran out on their bill…” WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS was my thought.

I did not take this at all seriously until May 12, 2015 at the Cutting Room. Many have heard the story of Laurice, myself and 10 other fans hanging out for pizza, lining up crazy early, sitting right in front of a barefoot Pat and later a singing, dancing,  tambourine beating and shaking Gillian Anderson.

I bought an album that night. While everyone else was talking/tweeting about THE KISS (Cue melodramatic music) Listened to it a few times. Two days later I started this blog.

The DUCHOVNIACS were born, or at least something more official. (It was a slow journey with 25 years of fans slowing finding each other at events and expanding. 25-30 concerts later – and New Zealand / Australia bound in three weeks for 6 more (Skipping Wellington for some more time in Melbourne) – I am a bigger fan of the music (as it’s own entity) than ever..

For most fans, HELL OR HIGHWATER was about David Duchovny getting to play and share an experience with his friends and fans. A comiccon meet & greet on crack.  Something to hold us over between X-Files and other projects. Out of the millions of X-Files fans around the world, there may be a few thousand that really give the music it’s fair shake to date.

EVERY THIRD THOUGHT will change all that. This no longer some celebrity doing the band thing. This is a legit BAND that happens to have David Duchovny’s celebrity status to open doors and sell tickets. This album deserves attention beyond the X-Files and Californication fandom.

I challenge everyone that will take the time to read this to do a blind test. Play a few of these new songs for friends. Make them guess the band name. These songs stand on their own, many ready for 2018 radio play. Most ready for movie soundtracks and other commercial use.  All ready to rock Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Sydney, Wollogong, New Castle and Brisbane next month.

See you down under!!!

PS- Super excited to hear some of the acoustic tracks coming. As much as I love the original album, the songs written by David and shaped by the band have become so much more as the musical relationship has grown over the past 4 years now (if you include initial writing, rehearsing and recording times).

THANKS must be given to Brad Davidson and Kerry Lee. If you have not met these two, they are usually at the door or running around doing the jobs of 3-4 each.

The Things

Lyrics and Music by David Duchovny

The things you said were not untrue
The things you wore were ok too
The things you kept, the things you threw, away
The things you thought I never knew will stay

The love I showed was partly cold, ah
The things I said were mostly true
The things you did were partly known
The dreams I have will go untold, yeah

They say with fate deals
Time heals all wounds
Well tell that to my heart that bleeds
Cause if the hand of fate and time were truly be by my side
I could look at you today without сryin’

The thing I was to you was gone
The thing were to me was blue
The thing I wanted to unfold and turn
Like paper tigers into gold or burn

They say with fate deals
Time heals all wounds
Well tell that to my heart that bleeds
Cause if the hand of fate and time were truly be by my side
I could look at you today without dyin’

STARS

David Duchovny

David Duchovny LIVE on Stage

Lyrics and Music by David Duchovny

INTRO – G

I’ve been told that some stars in the sky
Shine a light from stars that have died long ago
That explains when I look in your eyes
I see the light from a love that died long ago

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
Stars you showed on my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

I will ask of the stars in the sky
If it’s true that they’re no longer alive anymore
If they still keep on shining their light
So that I might find my way home tonight

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
Stars you showed on my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

So I will ask of the light in your eyes
The ghost of a love that died long ago
Can they still keep on shining, shining your light
So that I might find my way home
One more night tonight

CHORDS

STARS loosely follows the classic pattern of Pachelbel Canon in D, also made popular in Elvis’ Can’t Help Falling in Love. The bass line gently descends the major scale until resolving the end of a line with a simple V – I into the next line.

Bass line for the verse looks like this G F# E D C B A D

The Chords slight change between the first and second time of the patter in the verse. Over the F# we get a simple D chord the first time. The second time we get the stronger B7 that drives more to the em chord.

VIA WIKI
In the Norwegian Sea, chaos erupts on board the USS Ardent, an American destroyer escort. Due to mysterious yet unspecified events, half of the Ardent’s crew board lifeboats and abandon ship against their Captain’s orders. Eighteen hours later, they are spotted by a Canadian fishing vessel; however, in that short span of time, the young crew members have undergone rapid aging.

Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) visit the ship’s sole surviving crew member, Lt. Harper, who has been quarantined at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. Scully finds that Harper, despite being in his twenties, has aged to the point of being unrecognizable. Mulder explains that the Ardent vanished at the 65th parallel, a location with a history of ship disappearances. Mulder believes that a “wrinkle in time” exists there, and that the Ardent was the subject of government experimentation related to the Philadelphia Experiment from World War II.

In Norway, Mulder and Scully get Henry Trondheim (John Savage), a naval trawler captain, to take them to the Ardent’s last known location. After crashing into the bow of the Ardent, Mulder, Scully, and Trondheim find signs of advanced corrosion, even though the Ardent is only a few years old. Below decks, the party finds the mummified remains of several crew members. They also find the wizened commanding officer of the Ardent, Captain Barclay, who claims that “time got lost” after his ship encountered a “glowing light” in the ocean. Trondheim’s boat is stolen and his first mate is murdered.

Trondheim is later attacked by a Norwegian pirate whaler named Olafsson, who has not aged despite being on the ship for the past two days. Mulder, Scully, and Trondheim eventually begin to age unnaturally. Scully develops a theory that the Ardent is sailing near a metallic object beneath the ocean, and that it has caused free radicals to rapidly oxidize their bodies and age them. When Mulder notices that the ship’s sewage pipe is the only one not corroded through, the agents realize that something from the ocean contaminated the Ardent’s potable water and led to the aging; Olafsson’s men remained unaffected due to their consumption of recycled water from the sewage system. Desperate to survive, Trondheim kills Olafsson after he reveals the secret, and sets out to keep the water for himself.

Scully learns from blood tests that the contaminated water causes rapid cellular damage and dramatically increases sodium chloride in the body. She tries to ration the drinkable water amongst the three, but discovers Trondheim attempting to hoard what little that remains. Trondheim locks Scully out of the sewage hold, forcing her to use minuscule supplies to keep Mulder alive. The corrosion eventually eats through the ship’s hull, flooding the hold and drowning Trondheim, who cannot seem to lock the door. The agents both lose consciousness shortly before Navy rescuers arrive at their former ship. Scully comes to at the hospital, where she is told that her written observations on the case helped naval doctors reverse their aging and save Mulder from near-certain death. Scully says that she wants to return to the Ardent for more research, but the doctor tells her that the ship sank shortly after their rescue due to the flooding.

In the town of Gibsonton, Florida one night, two brothers are playing in their home outdoor swimming pool. A mysterious figure approaches them from the woods surrounding their home and jumps into the pool without them noticing. As the brothers play, they notice something is wrong and before they leave the pool, the figure emerges from the water. It’s revealed to be the boys’ father, “Alligator Man”, who scares his sons for fun.

Image result for x-files humbug

After some laughs in the pool, the “Alligator Man” tells his children to go back into the house as it’s late and time for them to go to bed. The boys leave the pool and their father stays behind to swim. An unknown mysterious figure approaches the pool from the woods. It attacks and kills “Alligator Man” in his pool.

Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) travel to Gibsonton to investigate a 28-year series of attacks by an unknown assailant in a community of former circus sideshow performers. They attend the funeral of the “Alligator Man” (who suffered from Ichthyosis). Among the people they meet afterwards are “self-made freaks” human blockhead Dr. Blockhead (Jim Rose) (who interrupted the funeral by hammering a railroad spike into his own chest) and his “geek” sidekick The Conundrum (The Enigma), who will eat anything, but says nothing. The agents also meet former performer Jim Jim, the Dogface Boy, who later became the local sheriff after his face went through hair loss.

Mulder and Scully stay at the Gulf Breeze trailer court, whose name is a reference to the 1987 Gulf Breeze UFO incident, also mentioned in season 1 episode, “Fallen Angel”.[1] Here, they meet the distrustful manager Mr. Nutt (Michael J. Anderson), and Lanny (Vincent Schiavelli), an alcoholic with an underdeveloped conjoined twin named Leonard. The agents hear a story about the legendary Fiji mermaid, a common sideshow act in the 19th century that generally turned out to be a monkey with a fish tail attached—the “humbug” referred to by the episode’s title.[2] Despite Scully’s usual skepticism, Mulder is intrigued because of what look like simian tracks left by the mystery attacker.

One night, Mr. Nutt is fatally attacked by a creature. The agents eventually discover that the attacker is Lanny’s twin, Leonard, who is able to detach himself from Lanny’s body. According to Lanny, Leonard attacks people and attempts to burrow into them because he is looking for a new brother to replace Lanny, who is dying from liver failure due to years of alcohol abuse. Lanny voluntarily locks himself in the local jail in an effort to keep Leonard from escaping, but dies during the night, and Leonard is able to slip through the bars on the cell window and flee. Mulder and Scully try to capture Leonard, who goes inside a funhouse, but he manages to get away. Upon leaving the funhouse, they find The Conundrum lying on the ground, rubbing his stomach, apparently having been attacked by Leonard. As Dr. Blockhead prepares to leave town with The Conundrum the following morning, he comments to Scully that with modern science eradicating genetic anomalies, it will be up to self-made freaks like him to remind people that “nature abhors normality.” The Conundrum looks unwell and Mulder asks what the matter is. The Conundrum — in his only line of the episode — replies, “probably something I ate.”[3] As Dr. Blockhead drives away with The Conundrum, Mulder and Scully turn to each other with confused and somewhat shocked expressions.

In Murray, Virginia, the Holvey family visits a local amusement park. When the youngest child, Teddy, lets his balloon fly away, his father, Steve, gives him the balloon that belongs to his older brother, Charlie (Joel Palmer). When the boys’ mother, Maggie (Helene Clarkson), is in the bathroom, the strap in Teddy’s stroller comes undone. Teddy follows the balloon floating under its own power out of the restroom and onto the tracks of the park’s tour train, leading to his death. Charlie is the only member of the Holvey family not to grieve Teddy’s death at the scene.

Three months later, Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) shows Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) a photo taken moments before Teddy’s death, showing that the balloon moved horizontally against the wind. Chuck Burks (Bill Dow), a digital photo expert, uses software to uncover evidence of electromagnetic disturbances in the shape of a child, holding the balloon. During a visit by the agents, the Holveys adamantly dispute Mulder’s theory that Teddy was led onto the tracks. Scully sees Golda (Lilyan Chauvin), Maggie’s elderly Romanian mother, drawing a swastika on Charlie’s hand. Scully theorizes that the Holvey children may be victims of Munchausen by proxy, perpetrated by their grandmother. At a meeting with Steve Holvey, he explains that Golda was against his marriage to Maggie, and that strange things began to happen when Teddy was born and Golda came to live with the family. Steve hints that Golda might be hurting Charlie, leading Scully to suggest that they visit a social worker named Karen Kosseff (Christine Willes). While preparing to take Charlie to a session with Kosseff, Steve is strangled when his tie is caught in the seemingly-malfunctioning garage door. Charlie, having been mysteriously locked in the car, starts crying over his father’s death.

Investigating Steve’s death, the police find evidence of the ritualistic sacrifices in Golda’s room. Mulder finds a film of fine dust in the garage, which Chuck identifies it as vibhuti, a residual sign of spiritual energy. Golda and three elderly Căluşari mystics conduct a ritual in her room. Meanwhile, during Charlie’s appointment with Kosseff, the child goes into convulsions. Kosseff and Maggie see smoke coming from under Golda’s door, coming across their ritual. Maggie is horrified, and forces the old men to leave the house. However, Golda grabs Charlie and pulls him into her room in an attempt to complete the ritual. However, Charlie quickly gains the upper hand and brings a pair of dead chickens back to life and makes them kill her.

When Kosseff asks Charlie about the incident, he insists that he was not in his grandmother’s room, and that it was a boy named Michael. Maggie is terrified at the claim, explaining to the agents that Michael was Charlie’s stillborn twin, about whom she and Steve agreed to never tell Charlie. Maggie also explains that Golda had told the parents that a ritual should be performed to separate the spirits of the twins, but Steve refused. Charlie has another seizure and is hospitalized. Michael knocks out the nurse and afterward convinces Maggie, by pretending to be Charlie, to take him home. Scully sees them leaving, and checks on Charlie. They find the nurse and Charlie still in the hospital room. Mulder, now convinced that Michael’s spirit is behind the killings, sends Scully to the Holvey residence to stop him.

Maggie tries to complete her mother’s ritual, but Michael tries to intervene. Back at the hospital, Mulder joins the Căluşari as they perform an exorcism on Charlie. As Mulder helps with the ritual, Scully arrives at the Holvey house, and finds Maggie being attacked by Michael. Scully is tossed across the room by an unseen force. Just as Michael is about to stab Scully, the exorcism ends, and Michael’s spirit disappears, sparing both Scully and Maggie’s lives.[1] Maggie returns to the hospital and is reunited with Charlie. Before the agents leave, the head elder of the Căluşari says it’s over for the time being and cautiously forewarns Mulder that “it knows you.”

STARS
words and music by David Duchovny

I’ve been told that some stars in the sky
Shine a light from stars that have died long ago
That explains when I look in your eyes
I see the light from a love that died long ago

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
The stars you stole from my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

I will ask of the stars in the sky
If it’s true that they’re no longer alive anymore
Can they still keep on shining their light
So that I might find my way home tonight

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
The stars you stole from my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

So I ask of the light in your eyes
The ghost of a love that died long ago
Can you still keep on shining, shining your light
So that I might find my way home one more night
Tonight

WIKI – In the episode’s prologue, Fox Mulder narrates a history of NASA’s Voyager program and the now-defunct High Resolution Microwave Survey, which sought to contact extraterrestrial life in outer space. At the Survey’s abandoned observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, the equipment inside suddenly activates, indicating a response from an alien intelligence.

the-x-files-mythology-little-green-men

Since the closure of the X-Files, the FBI has reassigned Mulder to a low-level wiretap while his former partner, Dana Scully, has returned to teaching at the FBI Academy. The two have a discreet meeting at the parking lot of the Watergate Hotel, where Mulder admits that he has been doubting his belief in the paranormal since Deep Throat’s assassination. Mulder flashes back to the night when his sister, Samantha, was abducted.

lgm_2_samabduct

Mulder is summoned to a meeting with Richard Matheson, a U.S. senator who is a patron for his work. Matheson directs Mulder to Arecibo, assuring the agent that he will try to hold off a Blue Beret UFO retrieval team said to be headed there in twenty-four hours. Mulder arrives at the Survey station, where he finds a frightened Puerto Rican man, Jorge, who draws a picture of an alien that he claims to have seen. Meanwhile, Scully, unaware of Mulder’s whereabouts, tries to find him. Reviewing a list of flights from Washington, Scully tracks Mulder down to Puerto Rico.

Mulder discovers a signal, possibly originating from an extraterrestrial intelligence. During a storm, Jorge gets scared and runs outside. Mulder finds him dead of fright. When Scully goes to an airport to fly to Puerto Rico, she realizes she’s being tracked by a couple, but manages to escape from them. Meanwhile, as Mulder investigates Jorge’s corpse, the room shakes. The door opens and the shadowy figure of an alien appears. Scully wakes Mulder up the next morning, finding him excited about the readouts and tapes of the signals—the proof of aliens he has sought for so long. However, the Blue Beret team arrives, forcing them to flee with only a tape reel.

Little_Green_Men_(X-Files)

Upon his return to Washington, Mulder is admonished by Assistant Director Walter Skinner and the Smoking Man for his actions. Mulder claims he still had enough evidence with the days missed to prosecute the subject of his assigned wiretap, and that his own phone calls were being monitored. Skinner demands that the Smoking Man leave the room, and decides to not discipline Mulder. Investigating the tape reel, Mulder finds it blank due to a power surge during the storm.

WIKI On a Russian freighter off the coast of New Jersey, a crewman trying to fix the ship’s toilets is pulled into the septic system. His half-eaten body appears in the sewers of Newark days later. Fox Mulder is assigned the case and visits with a Detective Norman in Newark, being shown the still-unidentified body. Mulder angrily confronts Assistant Director Walter Skinner, feeling he has been given the seeming “wild goose chase” as a form of punishment.

That night, Mulder talks to Dana Scully, telling her that he’s thinking of leaving the FBI. He shoots down Scully’s idea that he request a transfer to Quantico, believing the FBI doesn’t want them working together. Scully performs the autopsy on the crewman’s body, finding a Russian language tattoo on his arm and a flukeworm inside his back.

In Newark, a city worker named Craig is pulled underwater in the sewers but is rescued by his co-worker. He believes he was attacked by a python. He decides to visit a doctor (with Mulder observing) and complains of a weird taste in his mouth. An abnormal four pointed wound appears on his back during a medical examination in Sayreville, New Jersey. Scully shows Mulder the flukeworm she found, whose mouth, though much smaller, matches the wound on the city worker’s back. Mulder receives a call from a mysterious man telling him he has a friend at the FBI. That night, the city worker coughs up a flukeworm in his shower and dies. Mulder visits a sewage processing plant and finds a large humanoid with a fluke-like mouth.

At Quantico, someone slips a newspaper article under Scully’s door enabling her to identify the original body as a crew member on a Russian ship. Mulder and Scully meet at the processing plant and they look at the strange, fluke-like man. Skinner wants to prosecute the creature and subject it to a psychiatric evaluation, which Mulder thinks would be difficult. Skinner tells Mulder of Craig’s death and admits that this would have been an X-File had they still been open.

That night workers put the flukeman into a U.S. Marshal’s van, but it kills the driver and escapes to a local campsite. The flukeman hides in a portable toilet and is pulled into a truck the next day when the toilet is drained. Mulder receives another phone call from the mysterious caller. When he questions Scully about it, she denies any involvement. The flukeman is brought back to the processing plant. Scully believes that the flukeworm she found in the body is a larva, attempting to reproduce. One of the men at the processing plant is pulled underwater by the flukeman while investigating a storm drain overflow. Mulder heads in and saves him, apparently killing the flukeman by closing a sewer grate on it, slicing it in half. Scully concludes her investigation, thinking that the creature was brought to the U.S. by a Russian freighter that was hauling salvage from Chernobyl, and that the creature was created in a ‘soup’ of radioactive sewage. Elsewhere, the flukeman’s remains open its eyes.

The-X-Files-Season-2-Episode-3-1-3597

WIKI In Franklin, Pennsylvania, postal worker Edward Funsch (William Sanderson) is informed that he will be fired at the end of the week due to budget cuts. Afterwards, Funsch sees the words “Kill ‘Em All” on his machine’s digital display. At Franklin’s civic center, a middle-aged man in a crowded elevator sees “No Air” displayed on the elevator’s LED display, and is the only one who can see the message. Sweating and obviously claustrophobic, he again glances at the LED display. This time it flashes the words “Can’t Breathe” and then “Kill ‘Em All.”

Agent Fox Mulder arrives at the civic center after what looks like a massacre; bodies lie on the sidewalk and in the foyer. Sheriff Spencer (John Cygan) explains that the suspect murdered four people from the elevator with his bare hands. His rampage ended when he was shot by a security guard. Spencer notes that seven other individuals have murdered twenty-two people in Franklin in the past six months. Mulder discovers that the LED display in the elevator has been damaged, and that the dead suspect has a green residue on his fingertips.

At the FBI Academy, Dana Scully reads Mulder’s initial report. The only connection between the murders that he can see is that the suspects all destroyed an electronic device during the killings. Meanwhile, Bonnie McRoberts, another Franklin resident, drops by a repair shop to pick up her car, where a message on an engine diagnostic display warns her that the mechanic is going to rape her. She impulsively kills him with an oil can spout. When Mulder and Spencer question her the next morning, her kitchen microwave instructs her to kill them. When she grabs a knife and attacks Mulder, she is shot and killed by Spencer.

Scully performs an autopsy on McRoberts’ body and discovers signs of phobia including high levels of adrenaline and the same substance found on the elevator killer. She hypothesizes that the substance, when combined with other neurochemicals, produces an LSD-like reaction. While Mulder and Scully build a case, Funsch becomes more psychotic, continuing to see violent messages on electronic gadgets. Blood is associated in some way with each incident; a volunteer asks Ed to donate blood at a department store and seconds later he sees violent images, including a video of the 1993 Waco siege burning, flash across a sales display of TV sets, followed by a message to get a gun from the sporting goods department.

X-Files-season-2-Blood-img-2

Late at night, while investigating an orchard, Mulder is sprayed by a crop-dusting helicopter and ends up in the hospital. There, Mulder sees the message “Do It Now” on a TV and realizes that when people exposed to the pesticide, which contains a chemical called LSDM designed to provoke fear in insects, see these subliminal messages, their phobias are exacerbated enough to cause them to kill. Eventually, after being confronted, the city councilman agrees to stop the spraying and blood test the community under the guise of a cholesterol study. Mulder and Scully, reading that Funsch has not been tested yet, arrive at his house to find it strewn with smashed electronic devices. Mulder deduces that blood is Ed’s phobia and that he has seen the subliminal messages, and an empty rifle case signals that Funsch is going to act on his paranoia. Funsch positions himself at the top of a clock tower overlooking a blood drive and begins shooting randomly. Mulder climbs up to Funsch and overpowers him; Funsch is taken away on a stretcher. Mulder makes a call to Scully and sees the message “All done. Bye Bye!” on his cell phone display. Scully calls out to Mulder but he is speechless.

96 hours of Duchovniacs in Chicago – PART TWO SATURDAY at BUB’s

Ok, it’s now SATURDAY… (CHECK OUT FRIDAY ROAD STORIES HERE)

David and ThinkSay added a last minute concert Saturday. Most of us found out about this on Thursday while travelling to Chicago. Some of us were able to stay, others were locked into travel plans.

REVIEW OF HELL OR HIGHWATER

The others went to breakfast while I slept off a few pints and other things. They brought me back a monstrous pile of leftovers. We dropped a few Duchovniacs at the airport and then on to our new hotel for a nap. As I woke I mumbled, I’m going to wear the OTHER Hell or HighWater t-shirt.

I want to put up posters of this image to promote the concert that say “HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BOY?”  It kind of looks like a milk carton photo, right?  We set out for Bub City around 5pm. My GPS was being a BYATCH so another set up her phone. Siri took us west to the burbs. Something seemed off.

We hit a huge pothole and some unexpected hidden speed bumps. I screamed louder than anyone else.  Everyone in the car felt some ribs were cracked. Twenty minutes later…

Siri “Your destination is approaching on your right.”

Backseat Duchovniac “I think I will run to that Family Dollar store”

I SCREAM: “We’re at Bub’s fucking Fried Chicken.”

We went to the wrong Bub’s. This Bub’s was a fast food joint in the hood. Kids went running by with a Little Caesar’s pizza box. “Home of the Krunch Chicken!”

I got out of the car so fast to take this photo everyone else in the car feared I had not even put car in park. Turns out we were still 40 minutes from the right Bub’s. We navigated through closed streets and horrible Chicago traffic.

We finally end up at the right Bub’s. When I got out of the car to give the keys to the valet, several guests eating dinner outside stared at my HOHW tshirt. We sit down in the dining room for dinner and desert. Then drinks at the bar. It’s only 8:30. Basically until showtime we were herded like cattle by staff. They were not prepared for Duchovniacs..

We met some new friends. I am down front with the Duchovniacs holding a pitcher of beer. We had glasses but somehow staff cleared those. Four us took a corner. I had most of it. I think I sang louder than usual… 

SHOWTIME

Yeah, that happened… David looks right at me “You know all the words?” I think it was a question. Maybe a statement. Honestly I faked it well. I’m usually horrible with lyrics..as this next terrible (meaning my video quality) shows. It wasn’t until I rewatched that when I  realized I was singing ‘Passenger in my car..” up an octave. Loudly, making David look at me and then then point and nod. 

At some point some dolled up young ladies tried to get to the front of the crowd. I stopped them by asking “Are you with the band?”  At that very same time, David was talking to me again. Everyone in Chicago noticed but me.  “WALTER!!” screamed everyone. I turned to David. “Sorry, sir. Won’t happen again.” He was noticing my T-Shirt of his 10 year old face and my pitcher of beer. So cool…So embarrassing.

Of course, Positively Madison Avenue was the closer. Did I mention how much I love Pat?

We went back to our hotel, exhausted. Woke up the same way and drove back to NYC. Meanwhile…

Quick side note, to all those that want to know, we are all fine. There was some drama Saturday night not worth recapping here.  Nothing to do with David or his team. It seemed like the venue was unprepared for the crowd and that lead to some anger and sorrow… Enough said here. Lets focus on the fun and positive!

I do want to commend the venue for reaching out to me and apologizing to the fans. Much appreciated. I hope all that were affected by the down side of Saturday night join me in looking past anything negative and focus on the awesomeness!!!

Thank you to Brad and all the team at THINKSAY RECORDS for making this weekend possible. It was a real treat for fans.

You can read a few juicy details via my twitter though @waltfrasier Follow me and join the party! There is some news, sort of…

X-FILES SEASON ONE
Episode 22 Born Again
Originally Aired April 29, 1994
Written by Alex Gansa, Howard Gordon
Directed by Jerrold Freedman

WIKI – In Buffalo, New York, police detective Sharon Lazard finds a little girl, Michelle Bishop, alone in an alley. Lazard takes the seemingly lost girl into her precinct, and leaves her alone to be interviewed by another detective, Rudolph Barbala. However, moments later, Barbala is jettisoned through a window, falling to his death.

Lazard turns to Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for help. She tells them of Michelle’s claims that a man had attacked Barbala, even though she was the only person in the room when the detective was killed. The agents have Michelle describe the alleged attacker for a computerized facial composite; the computer seemingly glitches, displaying a face that Michelle identifies as the killer. The composite matches that of a Detective Charlie Morris — who died nine years previously in an apparent gangland hit. The agents speak to Michelle’s psychiatrist, Dr. Braun, who tells them that she habitually mutilated dolls in a uniform manner during their sessions together, removing the same eye and arm each time; Mulder realizes that these mutilations match the circumstances of Morris’ death.

The agents interview Barbala’s partner, Tony Fiore, who attributes Morris’ death to a triad gang they had been investigating together. Later that day, Fiore meets with a Leon Felder, and the two discuss claiming a large sum of money from a safety deposit box, but agree that they haven’t waited the ten years they had intended to, ominously discussing that they are the last two claimants left. That night, Felder gets off a bus, but his scarf catches in the door as it drives off. The driver tries to brake, but the bus inexplicably continues to accelerate, strangling Felder as Michelle watches from inside the bus.

Investigating further, Mulder and Scully learn that Fiore, Barbala, Felder and Morris had all worked closely together in the past. They also find that Fiore’s wife Anita keeps a collection of origami animals made by her first husband—Charlie Morris. Anita tells the agents that Fiore hasn’t returned home from the previous night; meanwhile, the agents find that pages are missing from the file on Morris’ murder, and Fiore was the last one to have checked the file out.

Michelle undergoes a session of regression hypnosis, where she claims to be twenty-four years old. She suddenly starts screaming in panic about someone trying to kill her, and the session is ended. Mulder reviews the video of the session, and is convinced that the girl is the reincarnation of Morris, having been conceived right around the time the detective was murdered. The tape contains a brief section of static noise just before Michelle begins screaming, which Mulder has an expert clean up. The noise is found to contain a grainy image of what appears to be a fish tank ornament of a man in an atmospheric diving suit. Meanwhile, Scully has tracked down Morris’ autopsy findings, which show the presence of salt water in his respiratory tract, indicating he died of drowning. The agents realise from these findings that Morris was drowned in the exotic fish tank in Fiore’s house.

Rushing to Fiore’s house, Mulder and Scully find Michelle using telekinetic powers to try to kill Fiore. They prevent her from doing so, and Fiore confesses that he, Felder and Barbala had stolen a large sum of money, intending to keep it safe for ten years before claiming it. Morris learned of their plan and threatened to report them for it, and was killed to silence him. However, Fiore maintains that he never wanted to see Morris dead. Michelle uses her powers to destroy the fish-tank, but spares Fiore after hearing pleas from Anita. Later, Fiore pleads guilty to charges of murder and grand larceny, whilst Michelle seemingly recovers and goes on to become a normal little girl.

Directed by David Nutter

WIKI –

At a research lab in Colson, Washington, intellectually disabled janitor Roland Fuller is scolded by scientist Dr. Keats for forgetting how to use the facility’s keycard locks. Keats walks in on his colleagues, Frank Nollette and Ronald Surnow, as they argue over a prototype jet engine they are developing. Nollette wants to push testing of the engine to break mach 15, but Surnow is unwilling to risk damaging the prototype. After Keats and Nollette angrily leave, Surnow enters the facility’s wind tunnel to make adjustments. However, Roland activates the tunnel’s turbines, sending Surnow flying to his death.

Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are brought in to investigate Surnow’s death. Scully notes that another member of the research team, Arthur Grable, had mysteriously died several months earlier, and believes it to be a case of industrial espionage. Mulder examines the handwriting on the team’s whiteboard and concludes that it has been written by at least four different people, leading him to suspect that a fourth individual was present. Keats and Nollette both inform the agents that Roland Fuller was the only one left in the facility at the time of Surnow’s death, but do not believe him to be capable of murder.

Nevertheless, Mulder and Scully visit the care home where Roland lives. When they gently ask him about the night of the murder, he tells them he had not seen anything out of the ordinary. He also inadvertently reveals his mathematical prowess by rapidly counting the star designs visible on Scully’s blouse; however, his handwriting does not match the fourth sample taken from the whiteboard. The discussion ends when Roland experiences a violent vision and has what seems to be a fit. Later that night, Roland has another vision in which he sees someone killing Keats. He appears at the lab and murders Keats by submerging his head in a tank of liquid nitrogen. Keats’ frozen body is left to shatter as Roland begins typing at one of the computers.

The next day, the agents notice that the computer had been used for five hours after Keats’ death. Attempting to open the file that was being worked on, Mulder realizes that the number Roland had written on an art project the previous day is the computer’s password. The file turns out to be the work of Arthur Grable, a scientist who had supposedly died several months earlier, and has been worked on constantly since his death.

Looking into Grable’s death, the agents find that it was he who had hired Roland. They begin to think that Grable faked his death and is killing his former colleagues, using Roland as a patsy. Grable’s body was never brought to the morgue, nor was a funeral ever held. However, Nollette brings the agents to a neuropreservation facility where Grable’s remains are being stored. When a photo of Grable is found, the agents discover that he is Roland’s identical twin brother. Speaking to Roland again, Mulder becomes convinced that the janitor is being periodically controlled by Grable.

Meanwhile, Nollette sneaks into the cryogenic facility and tampers with Grable’s storage unit, thawing his remains. Roland returns to the lab and is in the process of pushing the prototype engine to mach 15 when Nollette enters. Nollette admits to stealing Grable’s work and prepares to shoot Roland, but is distracted by some equations. Roland strikes him with a computer keyboard and drags him into the wind tunnel. The agents arrive in time to convince Roland not to kill Nollette. At the same time, the rising temperatures in the storage unit kill Grable. Roland is removed from the care home, to be taken to a psychiatric institute for testing. However, as he leaves he stops to comb his hair in a style reminiscent of his brother, raising the question of whether he is actually free of Grable’s control.

WIKI –

In Ardis, Maryland, a high-speed police chase unfolds at a waterfront. The driver of the car, Dr. William Secare, is cornered by officers but fights them off with surprising ease. Secare is shot as he runs up a gangplank and leaps off a ship into the water. The police fail to locate him but discover that his blood is green.

Soon afterwards, Deep Throat (Jerry Hardin) approaches Fox Mulderwith Secare’s case, saying he is of major importance to revealing the truth. When investigating the case, Mulder andDana Scully visit Dr. Terrance Berube (Ken Kramer), a scientist working in Gaithersburg, Maryland whose car was being driven by Secare. That night, Deep Throat meets a second time with Mulder and insists he continue, despite Mulder’s uncertainty on what he should be looking for. That night, Berube is confronted by the “Crew Cut Man” (Lindsey Ginter), who kills him and makes the death look like a suicide.

While investigating the crime scene, Mulder finds an erlenmeyer flask labeled “Purity Control.” Scully takes the flask toGeorgetown University, where Dr. Anne Carpenter (Anne De Salvo) helps her analyze its contents. Meanwhile, Mulder heads to Berube’s home and finds keys for a storage facility. Secare calls Berube’s home office and Mulder answers, pretending to be Berube. Secare tells who he believes to be Berube that he’s been underwater for three days, and is hurt. Meanwhile, the Crew Cut Man eavesdrops on the conversation. Secare collapses due to blood loss before he can tell Mulder where he is. While he is driven away in an ambulance, a poisonous gas emits from Secare’s body when the paramedics perform a needle decompression. Secare recovers and flees from the ambulance.

Mulder arrives at the storage facility and finds five men suspended in tanks, as well as a sixth empty tank. Mulder is pursued when he leaves the facility but escapes. Carpenter reveals that the “Purity Control” flask contains a sample of bacteria that doesn’t exist anywhere in nature and can only be described as extraterrestrial. Upon revisiting the storage facility the next day with Scully, Mulder discovers the room to be completely empty. Deep Throat arrives, revealing that Berube was experimenting on humans with extraterrestrial viruses. Six terminally ill volunteers were experimented on, and all had begun recovering. When it was ordered that they be destroyed, Berube helped Secare escape.

Scully learns that Carpenter and her entire family have been killed in an automobile accident. Mulder returns to Berube’s home and finds Secare, who is killed by the Crew Cut Man. Mulder passes out from exposure to the gas escaping from Secare’s wound and is captured. Deep Throat meets Scully outside of Mulder’s apartment and says that he may be able to make a deal with Mulder’s captors. He gives Scully the credentials necessary to enter the High Containment Facility at Fort Marlene, where Scully finds an alien fetus contained within liquid nitrogen. At an exchange on a freeway overpass, Deep Throat presents the fetus to the Crew Cut Man, who shoots him seconds later. Mulder is thrown out of the Crew Cut Man’s van as he drives off. Scully tends to Deep Throat, whose last wordsbefore dying are, “Trust no one”.

Several weeks later, a despondent Mulder calls Scully to inform her that the X-Files have been shut down. Meanwhile, in a scene mirroring the conclusion to the pilot, the Smoking Man stores the alien fetus in the massive evidence room within the Pentagon.
