Through the Adult Swim TV program “Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!,” Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have introduced many interesting performers, such as Tennessee Winston Luke and James Quall. David Liebe Hart could be considered the most interesting and enigmatic person to appear on the show. With a passion for music, puppetry, art, aliens and true love, Hart has earned a cult following with his unique brand of entertainment, which he has translated into a live performance.
Lagniappe was given the opportunity to step inside the weird and wonderful mind of Hart, which is filled with Corinnians, Omegans and heartbreak.
Stephen Centanni: “Go into the Light” was probably the first song I heard by you, and it’s one of your more popular songs. What inspired you to write this one?
David Liebe Hart: Well, I was selling my portraits at La Brea Tar Pits and ran across a woman who told me she was an extraterrestrial living among us, and her name was Jezebel Bordious. She was an “Elder Master,” which is what we would call one of our high commanders in our army. I told her I didn’t believe she was an alien. She was dressed kind of weird, but she looked like a beautiful white woman. She looked like Linda Carter, the actress. She just looked extremely beautiful.
She told me, “If you stay in the park until around 9 o’clock when the park is closed, then you will see me go into a spaceship.” I did see her go up into the spaceship and the light. She telepathically said to me, “The Corinnians say go into the light until next we meet again.” That is the way they greet each other, like when we say “hi” or “goodbye” in English. That’s what they say. That inspired me.
Then I got called up to work at “Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” I wrote a different version of the same song that said the same thing, except it was in Corinnian. It was different music with different lyrics. Tim and Eric said I couldn’t use the version that I wrote for them. So I composed a new version with the Corinnian and the English language as well. I also had a tattoo made on my leg of the woman I met, because she wanted to come back to Earth and marry me, but she never came back.
Then, I ran across a lot of jealous Corinnians that didn’t believe in interracial dating between a human and an extraterrestrial. So they blocked me from getting in touch with Jezebel anymore after that. She was just an extremely beautiful woman. She could telepathically read my mind and everything I thought or said before I said anything. She was just beautiful.
Centanni: One big aspect of your life is that you’re always on the hunt for true love. I think about the song “Marcama,” and it sounds like you’ve loved and been loved. What was so special about Marcama that led you to write a song about her?
Hart: Another extraterrestrial from the Corinnian race contacted me. I saw this unusual light while I was selling portraits at the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California. This space woman named Marcama came down from outer space like Jezebel. She told me that she was in love with me, and she never saw me with any humankind of the opposite sex. She asked me, “Do you have anybody?” I told her that I didn’t. She sent me an email that she would like to marry me and be with me and was lonely working up in the spaceships. She agreed to take me to Star Corridor.
She told me she was a musician like I am, but their instruments are different than ours. She said they believe in this power called “God” but they call him something different. She said Jesus Christ came and visited them in their dimension and their frequency and taught them salvation and right from wrong. She quoted from the Bible where Jesus said, “I have sheep but not of this world.” She was very attractive, too. She promised to marry and spend time with me.
Then her ex-husband called me and said, “That’s not gonna happen.” We got back together, and Marcama was going to be remarried and united with me. So he was odds with me for having a Corinnian woman. That inspired my first version of that song for the “Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” It has different music and different words from the version on the “Go Into the Light” album.
I write about what I’ve experienced and what I’ve been through. I’ve written a lot of songs about human women on Earth. I’m part German and Scandinavian and American Indian and African-American. For some strange reason, I’m attracted to Germans and blondes. Since I’m part Irish, I’m attracted to redheads. I’ve written songs to this beautiful blonde named Sonia Ruud that was engaged to be married to me. I loved her dearly. She belonged to the Lutheran church.
Her pastor, Mark Rosboch, was against interracial dating. He brainwashed her that she would burn in hell if she married me or dated me. After that, she quit speaking to me and returning my phone calls. It really hurt. Before she got brainwashed, we dated and had a Christian rock band together. We toured all the Lutheran churches doing music, and I loved her a lot. I had to finally move on, since she got brainwashed.
Centanni: I’ve been following your art and music for quite some time now. In the early days of your website, your search for love led you to posting your number publicly. I bet you got some interesting phone calls.
Hart: I’m lonely, and I want to have love in my life. I met a woman in Savannah, Georgia, who lied and told me she was single. Her name was Elizabeth. She told me that she was a musician like I am. When I first met her, she told me she was clearly single. When I paid for her to come see me and spend Christmastime with me, she wrote me a letter that she had a boyfriend the whole time. That broke my heart.
I’ve been mistreated worse by black women. They are just so vicious and mean. They act more like men than men. There is a woman that I paid to go through Bible class with me. The Christian Science Church have something called “Class Instruction.” It costs $100. She told me I reminded her too much of her ex-husband. So she only gave me one day of Bible classes, so that blocked me from the Christian Science Church. They told me that I couldn’t go through Class Instruction again.
Then I dated one black girl that did identity on me. So, I’ve been abused so badly by black women to where I never want to date them again. They are just so mean (chuckle)!
Centanni: What kind of surprises can we expect from your Mobile show?
Hart: It’s going to be stand-up comedy. My favorite comedians are James Quall and Neill Hamburger. I really enjoy both of those comedians a lot. They’ve inspired me to do stand-up comedy. I also worked with Robin Williams in the ‘70s before his big break on “Mork & Mindy.” Then he killed himself. I really liked the guy a lot.
Centanni: You think any Corinnians show up?
Hart: I just had the Omegans, who are enemies with the Corinnians, show up, which is odd. I had an Omegan guy show up at a show in North Carolina. An Omegan guy showed up in Massachusetts. The people that the Corinnians don’t like always show up. They don’t like that I am friends with Corinnians. They’ve had a 200-year war over space territory. It’s sad. With all the alien technology and back-engineering that the aliens have given us, they haven’t been able to overcome childish war, which really breaks my heart.
