King Solomon's Temple

Utah Phase 1 Poetry Book by The Hippy Coyote
$8.88 Download
includes additional graphics and webpages and PART 1 webstory

CD label L4

Author: The Hippy Coyote
Formats Available: CD, album download, individual song downloads
Genres: Poetry, Spoken Word, Pop Music, Rock Music, Classic Rock, Folk Rock, Masonry, Freemasonry
Music Publisher: Shaolin Music

It started as the autobiography of Coyote's journey in LEVEL 4 of Zen Buddhism.

It became the story of King Solomon's architect, Hiram Abif, who was murdered during the completion of King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem.

This story of "Hiram Abif," is to inspire Master Masons for centuries to be trustworthy, honest, and protective.

This album will inspire you in many different ways.

"Elaine" is about rescuing a girl from pirates.

"Flintridge Fire" is about the STATION FIRE that burned above Coyote's home, August 2009, when this song was recorded. It was supposed to be about General Balboa i the 1700s.

"Spirit Gun" is actually based upon a cartoon show, YU YU HAKASHU, that Coyote watched with his son.

"You're Lazy" is probably about you.

"Kill The Spider" is about the murder of "Hiram Abif."

This handwritten rough draft, was going to be the book to accompany the album, LEVEL 4 = KUNG FU COWBOY, before KUNG FU COWBOY was split into to parts and before the storyline of the album changed from autobiography of a Coyote to the Masonic legend of "Hiram Abif."

As I write this in June, 2010, I am releasing the PART 1 album: KING SOLOMON'S TEMPLE.

Although I would like to create the FINAL DRAFT of this book, my concern now is writing the music videos for this PART 1 album, and writing the SCREENPLAY for the next album, PART 2.

I rewrote a few poems to make them more legible, but most of this book was written for me, without anyone else ever seeing it.

Coyote rises to become a Buddha.

After the release of this album, Richard Del Connor, The Hippy Coyote, became known as Buddha Zhen.

Coyote's emergence from Mr. Mom since 1991, allowed him to spend more time writing and teaching and recording.

This is the first album that Coyote performed on an actual drum set. Coyote had a year to learn how to play the drums before recording this album.

This is an inspiring album by a Buddhist Hippie drummer who performed ALL THE INSTRUMENTS and sang ALL THE VOCALS on this album.

As Coyote was packing his last belongings to move from Tujunga to Montrose, California, he recorded the poetry on the album. On the day before the Marshals locked him out of his house, he recorded (and invented) the bass poetry on this album by recording one or more basses behind the spolken word tracks.

This new BASS POETRY has become very popular and earned as much praise as the music on the album.

Author: The Hippy Coyote
Formats Available: PDF Download, Paperback, Hardcover
Genres: Poetry, Lyrics, Autobiography
Publisher: Shaolin Communications

The lyrics to most of Coyote's songs are poetry worth reading without the music. Bizarre, creative, and insightful -- from Coyote's unique ability of seeing / living / experiencing / interpreting life.

This poetry book, Utah - Phase 1, was the precursor of what would become the 8 LEVELS of American Zen's Buddhist Journey.

This is a scanned copy of Coyote's ORIGINAL draft with his own editorial notes about each poem handwritten on the bottom of each page.

"A Long Way Home" depicts Coyote's desire to return to California. "Free The Change" criticizes the Mormon robotic mind. "Simple Lady" finds Coyote remembering peaceful moments in his life to escape his discomforts.

This path of enlightenment includes both the LEVEL 1 and the LEVEL 2 albums of American Zen, America's first Buddhist rock band.

Sample poem from book

Formats:   PDF Download, Paperback, Hardcover
Genres:   Poetry

Description:   Coyote graduated High School in St. John's, Newfoundland. There, on that remote arctic island, they spell and speak the olde British tongue. Flavors is spelled, "flavours." Colors is spelled, "colours..." It's how he wrote it when he wrote it.

We modernized the name of the book for the website domain name of:
www.autumnFLAVORS.com
(Check out the website for more info.)

Coyote said there are a lot of writings in this book that surprised him. "I've changed a lot since my teenage years," Coyote professes.

This is Coyote's first book of poetry and contains several poems from his San Diego State College poetry classes.

This is the 'dark' period of Coyote's life, so the poetry is darkly experimental.
Sample poem from Autumn Flavours

Probably best read by persons 13 years or older.

Composer: The Coyote
Artist: American Zen
Formats: CD, MP3 192kb
Genres: Folk Rock, Classic Rock, Spoken Word

Recorded in Utah, Coyote's bandmates made two pilgrimages to help him complete this 4-track masterpiece.

"We had to rely on performances," explains bassist Tom. "It was a challenge to record 4-track. We had to record our vocals as we played our instruments."

Tom plays a 1977 analog synthesizer for his bass when he plays the Vox organ.

American Zen's quest for enlightenment is also their professional and artistic challenge. Let's see how spiritual growth looks!'

"Is it like a fungus?"

No Tom.

Topics: LEVEL 1 = Peace Of Mind

These are the first 20 podcasts recorded by The Coyote of American Zen.

The spiritual evolution of American Zen starts here.

Reading from the webpages of American Zen's OFFICIAL WEBSITE, Coyote READS THE WEBSTORIES he wrote and illustrated with photos from his childhood. (Ah, how cute.)

This is even better than reading the webpages all by yourself because Coyote explains the stories and adds his humor and love for life.

These podcasts are mp4 so we could include slide show with links to each of the webpages that Coyote is reading from. Too cool!

Genres: Folk Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, Acoustic

Recorded in Utah, the 4-track master was brought back to California when Coyote fled the beehive state.

Completed in early 2007, this album shows an evolution in Coyote's flute playing. Check out "God Will Protect," "Great Salt Lake," and the title song, "Christ Killer," which has a very bizarre flute melody.

This album criticizes the Mormon religion, the Church of Latter Day Saints by depicting their religious world in songs and lyrics. "Land Of Mediocrity," is hauntingly lovely and accurate.
