poem (in two versions)
Feb27

___________________________________

V1

time and the field,
into the deep summer

recounting the sun's charter,
fallen to sea

beside anenome, and axons,
derivatives in stone

delved from campaigns and militias
of another year




V2

time and the field,
in deep summer

recall the sun's charter :
fallen to sea

beside anenome, and axons -
derivatives in stone

delved from campaigns and
militias of another year

rainpoem, november 11.13

We made beauty where before there was none
drawing breath from summer clouds and winter rains
on hillsides and seas of memory
i was the singer, you were the song

a poem of sorts, october 11th
___________________________________

surveying the vast tedium of our current enterprise,
no one was surprised to find men & women - who -
emboldened by a constant suffocating canopy of fools,
left nothing beside places
where cars and homes and marriages
rotted in the overgrowth
and future unbloomed lilacs
recorded and project new paths;
labyrinthine recurring simulations
block the flicker of historical light:
nature is imarginable yet we ourselves are bound.

Updates will be infrequent over the next little while, as work continues on STTMC Vol.2
in preparation for live shows, broadcasts and other transmissions.
There are many things to plan and think about, so that's what I'll be doing.

MUSINGS AND RUMINATIONS

"As you approach the truth, your solitude will increase....."

- Michel Houellebecq


"Even the articulate or brutal sounds of the globe must be all so many languages
and ciphers that all have their corresponding keys - have their own grammar and syntax ;
and thus the least things in the universe must be secret mirrors to the greatest."

- Thomas De Quincey


"After three thousand years of explosion, by means of fragmentary and mechanical
technologies, the Western world is imploding. During the mechanical ages we had
extended our bodies in space. Today, after more than a century of electric
technology, we have extended our central nervous system itself in a global
embrace, abolishing both space and time as far as our planet is concerned.
Rapidly, we approach the final phase of the extensions of man - the technological
simulation of consciousness, when the creative process of knowing will be
collectively and corporately extended to the whole of human society, much as we
have already extended our senses and our nerves by the various media."

- Marshall McLuhan - Understanding Media (1964)


"When you return to this mundane sphere from your visionary world, you would seem to leave a
Neapolitan spring for a Lapland winter - to quit paradise for earth - heaven for hell !
Taste the hashish, guest of mine - taste the hashish !"

- Alexander Dumas, 'The Count of Monte Cristo', 1844


"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench,
a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free,
and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."

- Hunter S. Thompson


"On the infrequent occasions when I have been called upon in a formal place to play the bongo drums,
the introducer never seems to find it necessary to mention that I also do theoretical physics."

- Richard Feynman (Messenger Lectures at Cornell University 1964-5)
