Okay, this was too awesome, folks.
It takes less than 2 minutes to watch. It made my morning and actually helped me get the fuck out of bed! With a smile, no less!
Iggy Pop reciting Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, the legendary poem about death vs. life, by Dylan Thomas.
And yesterday, Cave Things had a new work of art available for pre-order, but this one is a piece done in 1982 by the awesome Anita Lane!! A crucified Kewpie Doll!! (£100 plus shipping.) (Crystallizing that moment, I guess, when girls realize they’ve been duped. However, I for one, still enjoy the “doll” myth… I got no problem with it at all. ) (Barbie had her own Dream House, after all. And she lived there alone; answering to no one…)
Nick Cave also sent out a Red Hand File this morning, explaining the inspiration behind his somewhat harrowing song “White Elephant” on the awesome new album, CARNAGE, by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis. What he shares is surprisingly candid. You can read it here.
So there was nothing — overtly, anyway — happening in D C yesterday, after the M S M created all that hoopla surrounding gun-toting followers of . (Seriously, the only thing March 4 th is known for is being the original date on which the pr e s i d ent s of the US were once in au ru rated. That doesn’t sound like a reason to storm the c a p it ol yet again, does it??) (I’m, of course, pretending that we stormed it that other time.)
Okay, so. What really went on in D C yesterday is anyone’s guess. I say this only because ju an o s a vin was speaking to Michael J a co yesterday, from his hotel room in D C…. hmmm. And hotel rooms there were going for that ridiculously high rate (yesterday and through the coming weekend) due to some sort of booking of an “in au gu ral event.”
I put nothing past anybody ever, anymore.
I sit back, scroll through the headlines. Make mental notes. Listen to the podcasts. Make mental notes. Then I share with you here the things that I believe are pointing to things that are important to keep our eyes on. And then the rest of it — we just wait and see.
So many hidden things are being revealed now (aka The Great Awakening); both the awesomely good and the truly horrible. Half-truths are being told through necessity; outright lies are being told through malice. You have to trust your gut, and then wait and see where everything lands.
I’ve never known a time like this. Ever. A lot of it is actually pretty exciting, but getting through this current insanity is sometimes just too mentally exhausting. (For instance, Cardi B’s truly pornographic hymn, “WAP”, is the Song of the Year, but now Dr. Seuss’ books and The Muppets are being banned by cancel culture…)
I have nothing whatsoever against pornography, but, um….
If you’re one of the people who thinks this makes some sort of sense, you might want to try decalcifying your pineal gland. (I’m not being sarcastic, either.)
So. Down below are some videos of interest from yesterday. I’m still way into that grieving thing around here so I will cut this short. Thanks for visiting, gang. I love you guys. See ya.
