The Union – 365 Days (free album download)

Right click -> Save target as… on the photo to download the album.

Hello, my name is Marvin Sayson and I’m giving away this album for free. It contains stories I once shared with people, and now I want to share them with everyone. These are the stories that kept me sane; and their lifespans, their collective resonance is undefeated.

Now the reason why I’m releasing these songs for free is because I want to collaborate with you. Acoustic music has always been known to me as a canvas for collaborative movement; anyone can do anything with it so easily. But the challenge at hand for this one is far more interesting and quite heavy than the normal remix. Remember the album Do You Trust Your Friends? by Stars? I kinda wanna do something like that, only I’ll still be on the record. So download this stuff now and tell me what you think you can contribute. I will shoulder as much expenses as I can with recording costs, etc.

I’m leaving the country soon, and this has been one of my dreams ever since. Make it come true by participating! You can also help by spreading the word.

For more information, please contact or 🙂

My paper + creative project won Outstanding Thesis in our department, so I presented it to an audience yesterday. Turned out really well! This is for those who missed it.

“Yes, and I love the trite mythos of the outlaw. I love the self-conscious romanticism of the outlaw. I love the black wardrobe of the outlaw. I love the fey smile of the outlaw. I love the tequila of the outlaw and the beans of the outlaw. I love the way respectable men sneer and say ‘outlaw.’ I love the way young women palpitate and say ‘outlaw.’ The outlaw boat sails against the flow, and I love it. Outlaws toilet where badgers toilet, and I love it. All outlaws are photogenic, and I love that. ‘When freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free’: that’s a graffito seen in Anacortes and I love that. There are outlaw maps that lead to outlaw treasures, and I love those maps especially. Unwilling to wait for mankind to improve, the outlaw lives as if hat day were here, and I love that most of all.

“Victim? Your letter reminded the Woodpecker that he is a Woodpecker blessed. Your sympathies for my loneliness, tension, and disturbing fluctuations in identity have some basis in fact and are humbly appreciated. But do not be misled. I am the happiest man in America. In my bartender’s pockets I still carry, out of habit, wooden matches. As long as there are matches, there will be fuses. As long as there are fuses, no walls are safe. As long as every wall is threatened, the world can happen. Outlaws are can openers in the supermarket of life.”

-Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins
