O Pirata Digital

I wanted to write a song about pirates

…because I have a costume from Halloween a few years ago. I already came up with a cool video concept for this and am speaking with friends to try and find two cast members and a video person. I still have this concept in my head now, but unfortunately, I can’t materialize it as easily as I would have liked to.

I Don’t Advocate Breaking The Law

This was mostly written for my fans in Angola & Mozambique, who are the majority of my Facebook fans. I am not in any way advocating piracy in this song- it is just an interesting concept within a song, as well as an important historical occurrence. Within the context of a more European or American mindset, it makes more sense to discuss pirates in terms of digital piracy, thus the name.

When I said “bebendo na rua”, I was thinking about when I used to go to street festivals in Brazil. I learned Portuguese at Northeastern University and also took a class in Belo Horizonte. I became fluent during my brief time in Brazil, where I met a lot of great people there and I really miss it. I am more than happy to have followers in other Portuguese-speaking countries as well, because I have heard some bands from there and they have cool stuff.

I Didn’t Write This Song With a Lame Filter

This song isn’t particularly offensive to anyone, but it also wasn’t written with a filter. I didn’t even stick to one language really. It was mostly written in Portuguese and eventually, I created a version that was fully in English. The Digital Pirate (the English version) is on DIAMONDBACK Demo and it is one of my favorite tracks from the piece. It is mostly about having fun and although it is titled digital pirate, it doesn’t have much of anything to do with digital piracy. Now that I think about it, this song is completely random and people must think I’m so weird. That doesn’t bother me, but I would like to make something that communicates better with people in the future. This song is composed of poetic musings in multiple languages.

O pirata digital
gosta da bixa barbada
bebendo na rua
enloquece pra a lua

Visita a praia
Douradas como os maias
Rebolando com sentido
Tem chique do funky Rio

Witches wanna give me riches
and the Bixas like my pictures
minhas fans entenderam
I have smooth and sultry rock

Gosta de vida verde
Sage Suede canta pra
ideais progressivas,
vida beleza, festival

O pirata digital
gosta da bixa barbada
bebendo na rua
enloquece pra a lua

Visita a praia
Douradas como os maias
Rebolando com sentido
Tem chique do funky Rio

Witches wanna give me riches
and the Bixas like my pictures
minhas fans entenderam
I have smooth and sultry rock

Gosta de vida verde
Sage Suede canta pra
ideais progressivas,
vida beleza, festival

I love your little quirks
I’ll calm the babbling birds
I wanna see you slay
money each and every day

Still haven’t explained
I’ll be on the winning team
want to have me on your side
I’m already on your mind

O pirata digital
gosta da bixa barbada
bebendo na rua
enloquece pra a lua

Visita a praia
Douradas como os maias
Rebolando com sentido
Tem chique do funky Rio

Witches wanna give me riches
and the Bixas like my pictures
minhas fans entenderam
I have smooth and sultry rock

Gosta de vida verde

This song helps release negativity

When I first write things, it is generally about me and my feelings, so this is the same way, but edited to make more sense for a general audience. Repeating the words in this song is intended to release negativity. By the end of the song, you’ll be really apathetic and over the stress.

idc Music Video

For the music video, I met with Cal and he acted as my camera guy. He was really easy to work with and tells me he also does house music, so we plan to collaborate more in the future.

I made a wand for the video. I accidentally cut myself in the process, so I had a band aid on for a while. I saw this style of wand in an old magic book originally.
I chose the locations for the video the night before. I was holding a red skull shaker in the opening scene, but I don’t think you can see it in the shot. Oh well, whatever.

So we filmed at the Commons. It was a bit cold, but we managed to do it. The pidgeons made the shot more interesting since my movement was minimal and I tried to be as apathetic and half-there as possible. My dancing is really apathetic, especially at that one point I have my coat in my arms and I put my hands up, before just losing the will to dance. I made sure that my apathy came through in all aspects of the video. I modeled apathetically and didn’t even think of the video concept until 3am the day before.

Sage Suede – idc

I don’t care and
I don’t care and
I don’t care about you
I i idc
dc a u X4

Over all the harrowing
I’m the one they’re following
Looking mighty puritan
like to see you happy again

Lose the baggage
don’t need your stress
Not on my roster
stay off my list

keep talking sh*t
I’ll see you
another day, still looking it
keep being mad
Just wasted another day on feeling bad

I’m creating culture
You’re acting like a vulture
Ooh, does it sting
that I’m interesting?

I don’t care and
I don’t care and
I don’t care about you
I i idc
dc a u X4

(Clap)
Little finches want attention
Losers looking for a scapegoat
Dark witches use deception
Don’t waste my time
on trepidation X2

I don’t care and
I don’t care and
I don’t care about you
I i idc
dc a u X4

Over all the harrowing
I’m the one they’re following
It takes a lot of work but
I know that I’ll be heard

Little finches want attention
Losers looking for a scapegoat
Dark witches use deception
Don’t waste my time
to throw a fit
—-
Get out of my space
& find your desperate place
Get out of my space
& get your head on straight

Not your turn to shag it
Have some self respect

If you have a personal problem
Then you should try to fix it

I said idc 60 times in this song.
If you repeat the lyrics, it can help release unwanted emotion.
