Joe describes the difficulty of being irresistible to women. A series of desperate phone messages are by Joe’s ex-girlfriend. An elderly man talks about the love affair of friends and other matters. Joe’s girlfriend talks of how tired of him she’s become (from ‘Words.’). Joe meets with a primitive tribe in the Amazon and corrupts them and destroys their civilization with Western technology. Bessie, the angelic house maid, who’s fired and goes out on the road as a heroin addicted jazz singer. A rock star is raped by a group of women and becomes a misogynist. Joe appeals to a woman he met briefly at a movie theater, another he saw at a museum, a third he saw at a pet store.

This inspired piece is one of Joe’s best from the ITD series and a great introduction to his work, imho. The absurd humor balances the darker themes, and of course that mesmerizing voice over a hypnotic 3rd Stone loop. Highly recommend. We shall miss you, Joe – but what an incredible body of work you left for all to discover.
