Presiento que ya no se detendrá

Ahora el sueño fue de una guerra en el cielo. Nos refugiábamos en un supermercado. Los cajeros perdían el tiempo junto a los carritos. Después una sesión en las mesas del snack, un hombre veía caer ojos entre nubes, y tú planeabas una venganza tan confusa como innecesaria.

Mi reseña de Inland Empire

La nueva de David Lynch. Me planté en el sofá con mi confiable libreta y lápiz en mano. Desperté cinco horas después, tirado en el piso y con el lápiz clavado en la frente.

No! Todavía no la veo...

Imposible, Irremediable, Extremadamente

Feliz por mi primer clase en la maestría :) Eve: Es la maestría en Ciencias con especialidad en Lengua y Literatura.. una beca casi total.... rock n roll!
Y por Friends Win. Si tan sólo fuera posible.... nadie podría detenernos. Muerte a todos los demás :) Lo siento.

Iggy Pop habla de... la escena independiente

"I'm in the biz, dude. It's a branch of show business, that's what always annoyed me most about the American alternative/do-it yourself scene when I came up. It was simple. If you were the artist you were supposed to be cool, and the agent was supposed to be a crook, and the manager was supposed to be a creep, and everyone administrating was un-cool and the publicist was cheesy. You know, we all have our roles. But then the DIY guy says I am the guitar player, I'm the publicist, I'm the agent, and I'm the lawyer, too. So I look at the guy, and I'm like, okay, you've convinced me. You're a greedy, cheesy crooked creep with a guitar. Fuck you. I want nothing to do with you. That's kind of how I feel. And you're a politician, too. Or a computer turd. Why don't you just drop it and work for Microsoft or invent a new surf engine." Iggy Pop, en Pitchforkmedia.

The Wit of the Staircase

It is said.

walk into the sky

met her in the elevator
a purple miniskirt
i was grateful
think of the project
think of the project and you

two girls visiting
another world
they walk into the sky
you went into the ocean
i was alone

she had to build it all
she had to blog the world
she had to mantain

many years
you could've arrived in a boxcar
mister electrico's first daughter
the first one in town
to drive under the hard rain

she had to build it all
she had to blog the world
she had to mantain

she was older, she was suspicious
she was changed

fled into the buildings of the dead
you could still smell the attacks in the air
a career jump, life was only
a temporary art form, a novella
new york, the wind, new orleans, the loose change
is it wrong to say?
is it wrong to say?

Una de Bob Dylan - Furious Simon's Nasty Humor

Tal como apareció en su alucinatorio libro, Tarantula:

Furious Simon's Nasty Humor

i had a dream
that the cook
& shook
his fist over the
balcony & said yes
to the people
yes to the people
& he said this
to the people
"i want four cups of stormtrooper -
a tablespoon of catholic - five hundre paranoids -
some water buffalo - a half pound of communist -
six cups of rebel - two cute atheists -
a quart bottle of rabbi - one teaspoon of
bitter liberal - some antibirth tablets -
three fourths black nationalist -
a dab of lemon cock powder -
some mogen david capitalists & a whole lot
of fat people with extra money"
then the cook's helper
& cleared his throat & then he
said to the people yes the
"also we'd like a mocking bird
& some maids a milking - some raped
college students & a drenched hen -
two turtle gloves
& a partridge & a gin & a pear tree"
i awoke from this dream
in the state of fright - then jumped out of bed &
ran for the kitchen - crashed thru the door &
slammed on the light/fell on my
bended knees &
thanked God
that there was nothing new in
the ice box

dear Puck,
traded in my electric guitar for
one you call a gut can play
it all by yourself - don't need a band -
eliminates all the fighting except of
course for the other gut guitar
players - am doing well - have no idea of
what's happening but all these girls
with moustaches, they're going crazy
over me - you must try them sometime -
weather is good - threw away all my lefty
frizzell records - also got rid of my
parka - you can keep my cow as i now am
on the road to freedom

see yuh later aligator
