    HAHAHA! I loved how you tried seriously quoting Arnold. You mean you are in a band as well? Me and my friend are in a band called Seahorse Hunter we do some sort of dream pop/psych music with a lot of vintage electronics and ethereal inspired sounds. I used to create electronic-dream pop music too but I haven't updated my profile for a while. What do you play?

    Yes, I was amazed by the quality of the people in Black Hearted Brother, that can't be disappointing! I heard one song by this new collaboration and I really liked it. I can't wait to hear more, especially now that I know the album is coming up soon. PS: Yes, you did pollute my shoutbox I'll have to ban you out of my profile for an unknown period of time.

    Thanks a lot man! Ride is the only band I'm not familiar with, but I'll definitely check them out! Think you can throw any other recommendations for music to check out? I'm really trying to branch out y'know?

    Actually, I just wanted to mess up with you! Yes, I do appreciate sharing my interests with others but I never send more than one shout at once. I'm a shout control freak. And I have a blog when I want to write more than 1000 characters. I fee like we live in a "twitter-like" society. Metaphorically, I think this would explain what I mean.

    --> that embarrassing moment when you discover your significant-other has inadvertently scrobbled you a couple hundred songs you'd never listen to when she tuned in some bad Spotify station the night before. (130 tracks by the Counting Crows?? eek) <--

    hey buddy. i've only heard a couple of his albums, my favourite of which is the diamond mine release he collabed with jon hopkins on. hopkins' electronic washes suit his music really well and i'm obsessed with that album. i do love crime and the city solution too, they're a great band.

    Said the cat-lady to the cat: "You are a prisoner of my love." Said the cat to the cat-lady: "Mreeee-owwer." (Translation: "I pooped in your undergarments.")

    The Skull-Fuckery Sessions™: Play two jazz albums simultaneously, LOUD. Example? The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady by Charles Mingus vs. Masses by Spring Heel Jack. ... and experience B'BOOM. (Side effect? Massive scrobble cheating.) Enjoy. ALTERNATIVELY (and equally transportive): Play the same album from two different sources (e.g., both Spotified and iThunes) with about a one-second offset between them. Exquisite for shoe-gazer, space-rock, minimalism, and other drone-prone media. Example? Souvlaki by Slowdive. Gin recommended.

    If your prowess as an editor is slight, then your writing will never attain its full force and power. But if your writing lacks imagination -- who gives a bout ashit your editing?

    Friday's soup of the day? Mixed-metaphor stew! To wit --> "It's so far past time for right-thinking people to continue humoring climate-change deniers that at this point, we're effectively the terrified wife who hides from the raging alcoholic husband who violently refuses to acknowledge that our son has a potentially lethal heroin problem. So listen up all you alcoholic tea-party dads: 'Face it: Earth has a fucking heroin climate problem!' " (Fun facts in today's soup: Double-colon *and* double quotation usage! Powerful ingredients for an editor's headache.)

    I guess it's back to frightening the cat with 100 dB renditions of Tony Conrad.

Writer, I miss you.

"This is you:"

"No, this is YOU."

I was fifteen when my best friend John shot his father in the face. It was an accident, I’m certain, and but for the fact that I’d dropped a couple of shotgun shells as I was fumbling to reload, the shot could have been mine.

I sometimes wonder what difference that might have made.
—Christian Wiman, "The Limit"

Hey Mr. Tough: Don't you think we've suffered enough?


A pop, a first flash of fire, and I didn't hear a—

...speared the beetle on the end of the compass point
and raked it, fsss-st, from my eardrum.

beyond the whoom and whoar of the ocean.
Its heat crept cross my face.

Bang: Deafened
in the red rush of the sound of the sea
(that perforated gregor samsa and I).

All writing is in some sense reporting (even if it is only a report of one's own mental or emotional state). And the essence of reporting is to interpret for others.

Therefore, a writer is always within his or her rights to attempt subjects in which they lack expertise. Certainly, the report of the observer is not the same as the report of the expert, but each perspective has its merits (and blind spots).

Thus if the writer can interpret a topic sufficiently to stimulate and edify others, then they have attained some measure of success. Perhaps this is true of all art, but I know it is true of all writing.

Apparently my "eclectric score" (yes) is currently 99/100. (But paired with my MMR vaccine, Jenny McCarthy says it may cause autism. Cuz, science.)

And for whatever reason, my "super-eclectric score" [sic] is purported to be 852/1000. I plan to try an over-the-counter ointment before seeking additional help.

(What was that about not being a number?)
