Ultraklystron - Romance Language
All tracks written, performed, mixed, recorded and produced by Karl Olson, except for "shoujo n' shonen," which was written and performed by Karl Olson, Danielle Prokop and David Cheong, and was recorded, mixed and produced by Karl Olson and David Cheong.
Romance Language tackles some different ground for nerdcore. The main focus of the disc is an 11 song arc about romance, love and various other things in that vein. Musically, everything from classic hiphop to crunk to grimecore to ambient/hiphop fusion is in play, likely much to dismay of perspective listeners. Meanwhile, the bonus tracks feature some remastered rarities from the RhymeTorrents compilations, some remixes (or perhaps rather premixes) of songs that'll be featured on Opensource Lyricist and some songs that ultimately didn't fit the flow of Opensource Lyricist or the arc nor of Romance Language. It clocks in 20 tracks officially, though there might be a few hidden tracks too ;). It's 8 bucks including S&H.
Critical Praise for Romance Language:
"Karl Olson weaves a complex web of sense images in his work [...] you won't be disappointed." - Z, Hipster Please!.

So Long Kids
by Karl Olson
Just when you think they've hit rock bottom, they go still farther.
4Kids does nothing but make otaku life harder.
So I think I've gotta message for that Alfred Kahn.
Enjoy your company now before it's totally gone.
Look, it's not your fault that company fell apart
Would have thought that kids that age are actually smart
Don't they just make jokes about fowl things like farts
I mean honestly, who would think that they would have heart
Isn't intellect and wisdom supposed to be adult-only?
All kids should care about are bratz dolls and homiez
So right now Al, you're saying "someone console me."
Apologies and condolences, no will hold thee
You say it's for kids/but in fact it's for no one
Spend dollars and quid/to edit out every last gun
I think it's time to pay the price and time to repent
I regret to inform you that your goodwill is spent
I've got to protest ya - you mislead your investors
So if I didn't destest ya - I'd be letting you fester
We didn't need your money in the shoujo fandom
I trust you like the makers of the Phantom
With the shows that you have - you should be at the top of the nation
But instead that title goes the crew at FUNimation
You think your Danish Card Game is gonna be a Sensation
You must not understand the word oversaturation
You can't even pronounce your own properties correctly
So I'd never invest in you not even indirectly
Yes I said your company's a terrible investment
I recommend to all your stockholders permanent divestment
I know in the late nineties you were the the top of the neilsens
But now you're burning up like spacecraft with out shieldin'
And if you think that Ms. Doremi can provide you with healin'
Back away from the property and please stop squealin'
If you had better treated the anime that you were dealin'
Your investments wouldn't have stopped rockin and yieldin'
So Please keep to yourself all your selfish fantasies
I don't care one bit about your fall do to vanity
4kids is best swimming with the fishes and manatees
We need to put an end to this virtual insanity
At the time I'm writing this it isn't yet a reality
Make it Happen With Your Actions/Drive 4kids to Bankruptcy
