More poetry. I thought this one was lost…I always liked this. I love Radiohead. Ice Age Coming Somewhere alongside the freeway It is possible to hear birds outside your car window Thick, soot-covered birds Cackling in Ornette Coleman harmony As they perch on plastic buildings As they perch on the antennae Of the rooftops that […]
Did I mention I used to write poetry? Rain Coast Prelude. See where Christ’s blood streams in the firmament Bright curtains for a boy to slide down, Great masts to support the world where it has grown a little antique. I. The father is out of his mind, And has been thus since the cannons […]
Found this in my Documents folder. I have no memory of writing this. The sound of the horn and the drum Keeps us all awake into the night. They are praying to gods we do not understand. But there is solace in the heat and the sand And the breaking of bones that should have […]
Nine Inch Nails ends contracts I’ve waited a LONG time to be able to make the following announcement: as of right now Nine Inch Nails is a totally free agent, free of any recording contract with any label.

In direct counterpoint to Kanye’s humdrum Graduation, Talib Kweli’s newest album, Ear Drum, is intelligent and way groovier. Better flow, better beats, better everything. Go buy it.
Got this, listened to it. Aside from a couple of high points, it’s basically a snore-fest. Lazy lyrics, boring flow, and the best things about it are the people he brought in to help him. Where does this guy’s rep as a major talent come from? Give me Mos Def, Talib Kweli and (Kanye’s fellow […]
I’m at the end of the second day of a 14 day diet. All raw vegetables, with sushi allowed (for protein). Tonight I broke down and ate three very small cheese enchiladas. Fuck, I had to — I feel like hell. After two weeks of this, it’s two weeks of juice fasting. Meaning just juice. […]
Sherri, kitten, the rest of us figured this out a little more than half a millennium ago. And most of us got the evolution thing about a century and a half ago. If you can’t keep up with the class, don’t raise your hand, okay? Look, I can barely — barely, mind you — understand […]
