Here Comes The World well i wake up in the morning and here comes the world, rub my eyes a little and here comes the world, I put my feet on the floor and here comes the world and then I go outside, everywhere we are, everything we think, here comes the world, it’s all around us and in us too, you make it up as it makes you, here comes the world, well I brush my teeth in the evening and here comes the world, i put on my PJs and here comes the world, I put my head upon the pillow and here comes the world and then I close my eyezzzzzzzzz…….
Sun Don't Wait the sun don’t wait for us to witness the 1st light of the day it’s never late, the stars ain’t gone they only went out when we turned our own lights on they’re seen from other places, the giving trees they sway in the breeze whether or not we are breathing, maybe, the earth calls for our bodies to make another one or two, when ours falls, in the meantime, go against the grain and with the wind
La Vida Es 03:10
La Vida Es la vida es un milagro, el milagro de despertarme, en la mañana sabiendo que tengo, otra oportunidad, otra chanza para ver las caras sonrientes de mis niños, la vida es un regalo, podemos hacer con ese regalo lo que queramos ¿lo vamos a reciclar? ¿lo vamos hacer brillar?, ¿lo vamos a compartir? o ¿lo vamos a dejar en la caja debajo de la cama? ¿donde solo los animalitos de dios lo pueden apreciar? ¿donde solo los animalitos de Dios lo pueden apreciar?
We Pay For This Service every day we're bracing for the next horrible video, then we'll all scream again how is this possible that in a supposed civilized society we could let something like that happen to anybody's body, but not only that we pay for this service to protect and to serve us, but who is us? if we're not all us, we're dust
The Sound 03:53
The Sound the sound
Get Together Make It Better oligarch super villains, they know exactly what they’re doin’, and we all know there ain’t no super hero to save the day, i’m just going to come out and say it we ain’t got the rest of our lives to get ready, this is the future now flyaway boats in blue, estate sails for the dead, where every old hate is new again, and every color’s called red, hear me out now, they stole the elections fair and square, watch out, here we are, alive in this time, we better get ourselves together, we got to get together to make it better, in this meantime we’ve got to save ourselves and each other, In this meantime we've got to heal ourselves, In this particular meantime, we’ve just got to fix democracy, that's all, and it’s always been broken
Who Will Lose? if the people fight the people, who wins? who loses? where do the people end and the oligarchs begin?
Lyrics by thollem/kaufman
Individual Like You this is a song about how it is everybody loves a genius from a distance so they hung the dinner on the doorknob vacuum packed roadkill lollipop from the beloved waco franchise restaurant the only way to get there is by making a wrong turn every crowd needs an individual like you the early worm looks before it leaps here’s a crown for you mandatory clarity training find your commonalities not just our common enemies and work together to make us better and our situation
Assoreted American Flavors the uncomfortable questions are the one’s we’ve got to ask, difficult discussions are the one’s we’ve got to have, if you love this country you’ve got to love the people too it seems to me and if you love this country you have got to love, love the land, watching me watching you watching every body do what they do, americans, americans come, americans come in a variety, get used to it, they come in assorted american flavors, the state of the union depends on the health of the people, the health of the people depends on everybody, I am human with an apparently defined existence elaborately achieved, when I am approached I can become a fantasy of infinitely strolling truths, in the future there lies a butcher of the past and in the past lies freedom fast but only from the present
Think Again, And Again they're going to day dream all day, they know the way to find the way, they're going to sit and think it through, they know the truth, they found the proof, through confusion comes understanding, if you think you've got an idea think again


Hot Pursuit Of Happiness (HPOH) is Thollem's moniker for his new 21st Century one-man band. HPOH's first album, This Day's Called Tuesday, explores the slippery nature of objective reality, love and justice in a violently polarized world.

Though known - in part - as a renowned improviser (check out his Astral Traveling Sessions series on the esteemed Astral Spirits label), Thollem is equally at home composing and performing songs.

Following his work with his Italian punk band Tsigoti and The Hand To Man Band (John Dieterich, Mike Watt, Tim Barnes), this is Thollem as singer-songwriter, live beat maker, and producer all rolled up into one and in real time. Thollem will be touring HPOH on the West Coast in August and internationally after that.

Some of the references others have mentioned in response to this album include: Stereolab, Bauhaus, Tom Waits, Liars, Red Krayola, Richard Youngs, Larry Young, Alan Silva, Scott Walker, Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, Tom Tom Club, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Leonard Cohen, Aphex Twin, Arthur Russell, David Sylvian and Pere Ubu.


released August 5, 2022

All songs written, recorded and mixed by Thollem in Northern New Mexico, 2021
Mastered by John Dieterich in New Mexico, 2021
