I feel so possessive darling
Keep my toes close to you
With pointed finger I still
Count myself in sets of two

We’ll be so progressive darling
Solar cell on our roof
We’ll renew our vows each morning
Hyperloop our kids to school

I can be malignant darling
When the truth is plain to see
I thought you for hours this week
I’m your best shot presently

I say hands up
I say hands down
When I look inside me baby
You’re throwing me all around
I see flash bulbs
I see LEDs
No matter where I look man
You’re the brightest light in front of me

I seem so pathetic darling
Check my phone constantly
Texts loop like a mantra through me
Buzzing blasts of dopamine

I say hands up
I say hands down
When I look inside me baby
You’re throwing me all around
I see flash bulbs
I see LEDs
No matter where I look man
You’re the brightest light in front of me

We can see the sea change darling
When we touch wirelessly
With our sweaty clothes and eyebrows
We’ll remember how it feels to feel everything

Please don’t go, la la la...

Fenya" Christmas Truce

A lot has been going on here at Human Being Productions, so we didn't really have any time to make our own holiday or end of year video. However, we did manage to work on a of couple holiday videos for our clients. "Christmas Truce" is a music video we made in collaboration with Ryan Harvey of FireBrand Records

"Firebrand is a bold new project from Ryan Harvey (Riot-Folk) and Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) dedicated to the global release and distribution of radical, socially conscious music."

It's a beautiful song. Take a look and listen.

Anti-War Christmas single by @vfpuk and @FirebrandRecord Records available on; iTunes: Amazon: Spotify: During the Christmas of 1914, soldiers on multiple fronts of the First World War put their weapons down and made an unofficial and illegal truce. When the celebrations ended, many would not go back to war with each other. The popular story has been re-told many times as a Christmas miracle. This December 18th, an organisation of veterans of the British military and Tom Morello’s new Firebrand Records release “Christmas Truce” a holiday single and video to promote the ideals behind that truce - soldier-led resistance against war and militarism. Written by Firebrand Records co-founder, folk singer, and longtime anti-war activist Ryan Harvey, “Christmas Truce” is performed by Belgian-born, London-based singer Fenya, an active member of London’s Food Not Bombs. Accompanying the song is a video shot with members of Veterans For Peace UK, featuring former soldiers of conflicts stretching from the Second World War to the present interventions and occupations in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan. "The Christmas Truce lives in the hearts of millions of people,” says Veterans For Peace UK coordinator Ben Griffin, who served in Northern Ireland, the former-Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Afghanistan with the Parachute Regiment and the Special Air Service. “However we need to move on from the idea of a truce being something that is only carried out at Christmas. Throughout history soldiers have formed truces with their supposed enemies; in fact soldiers often find that they have a lot more in common with the enemy than with their own governments." “I wrote this song to tell a simple story that reflects a much larger reality,” Harvey says. “Soldiers have spoken out, protested, and revolted in almost every war in history. We encourage and need this resistance, because historically, it is one of the single strongest factors in bringing wars to an end. At a time when a civil and proxy-war is ripping Syria apart and the world seems to be lingering on the brink of yet another global catastrophic conflict, this ever-relevant song references history to describe the present.” “We hope to convince people that war is not the solution to the problems of the 21st century,” Griffin concludes.

Catholic Charities Child and Family Services

This year, Catholic Charities of Maryland gave us the opportunity to work on an eye-opening documentary project. In a series of interviews, we spoke with some of the people that make their Child & Family Services division possible - parents, teachers, administrators, and passionate community members from all over the Baltimore area. Their stories showed the everyday heroism of those who care for children.

The first part of this series explains the purpose and the history of this organization.

Living Room Sessions: Gunwife Gone

For this month's Living Room Session, we put Baltimore Cabaret rockers, Gunwife Gone to the task of playing one of their songs with nothing but homemade and found instruments.  They had about a week to rehearse. By the end of it, drummer Ryan had managed to find 15 sounds you can make with a water cooler jug. So remember, the next time you are at the office and the water cooler is empty, pop that shit off and see what kind of music you can make. I'm sure your coworkers won't mind. 

Special thanks to audio technician Rex Anderson for mixing and mastering the audio for us. 

Listen to Gunwife Gone's new EP


Living Room Sessions is a Human Being Productions original series. We take talented musical acts out of their element, and into our living room.
