easter monday morning
i ring my little duckling in dela-where?
but shes busy putting bumper to sleep
and that can be a fiddly n tricky task
sometimes the bumper pretends to go to sleep
so as you sneak out
she can open her eyes
stare at you sadly..
pack yer bags..youre going onna guilt trip
i listened to both gilt trips the other day actually
i reckon i’d like em if say
rikki mon-ami from the braying jungstown madagascar
say he stuck gilt trip on my pod
and i stumbled upon it
the way i stumble on all these other great things
he put in my pod
but no wundah the music biz is going down ye olde draine
i mean
i dont even go in the ten dollar cd shop no more
note to non aust residents:
full price cds are about 30 bucks here
but i mean i sat around my anonymous friends house lassanite
we was thinking of the most obscure stuff
we could think of
i remembered seeing an advertisement for a band called affinity
back in 1970 in the nme
so i say see if they got affinity
i mean iesus christos
affinity is gotta be pretty rare
maybe…maybe
mwps got it
i wouldnt be surprised
but sure enuff
the internets got it
bang
we’ll have that
its blurb reads psychedelic jazz blah folk pop fusion
(read: its probably atrocious bullshit)
but hey you want rarity
i read somewhere that true fans
will buy music if by their faves
and especially if “indy”
even tho they could get it for free
(hint hint)
no no
i trust you fiends
its like subscrbing to this blogge
some people
they know who they are
i know who they are
have been ridiculously generous
and i do most ‘umbly thank ’em
others have been very fair
and to them i again say thank ye kindly
these people have more than made up for those
who dont care to subscribe
and thats how life is
you winsome
you lose sum
if it was me i probably wouldna gotten around to paying either
fuck i dont even thank the people properly for gifts theyve sent
like memmy mem from memland
a copy of gospel of judas
but also in a cover handpainted
with bottle of jaeger on front
n can of red bullshit on back cover, lover
i must say this mem
its hard to read
with the gaps n fragments n footnotes
i mean it aint:
hi im judas iscariot
and last nite
jesus h christ walked on yonder water baybee
i mean the nazarene he was aqua-ambulating y’all
no its like a few words n then copious footnotes
which say that the word “love” you just read, say
actually in this aramaic or hebrew or whatever
those cats were talking in
well it says love could also mean hate
or loathing
or it could mean flowerpot or riverbank
and a lot of scholars are going for the vase option…
can you dig this broken up narrative that judas ends up being
im afraid i temporaraly stalled
ive started american gods by neil gaiman
which rusty swears is a good book
it better be rusty
i dont wanna find out at 18 ooo miles over borneo
that this books boreing me to teers
but the letters are printed big
and thats a start
at least
yes
this arvo
me n powlesy koppes n johnno
our lighting man from the last 20 odd yeers
n mrs tp
will all fry to london via some singer-poor
or bang cock!
one or the other
to start our euro tour
now im hoping to have a treat for y’all
i said hoping didnt i
im gonna take my camera n try n post some pics
as i flounce around europa
visiting places i hope the jazz is gonna flow
thats right if you coming to our say
transylvanian gigs
and you think boy itll be hard for the olde being
to do any jazz numbers tonight
and you think
hey my uncle hugo left a stash of sweet jazz
in my top drawer
then please please
children of the night
bring it on home
a different kind of subscriber you shall be deemed, childe
yes a jazz donor for all time exonerated of pecuniary payments
just knock on the door n say
jazz sent me
but beware
in the u.s.
naughty people using invoking name of sacred jazz
coming thru door n saying whoops no jazz but anyway….
well let me say
i frown on that behaviour most solemnly
and have been known to lash out emotionally
at such wags n trickstahs
obviously in holland for example
this jazz service is self service
so no need to help there
but otherwise
whatever
anyway
look at me
calling out
loud as thunder
i should be suiting my pack case
i should be watering the goldflowers
n feeding the fishplants
i should be washing up
washing down
washing around n around
rinsing off
rinsing on
rinsing yer daughter
rinsing yer son
sweeping the floor
flooring the taxi
get to the airport
sit on the planey-waney
please mr captain with yer goldstripes n peeked hat
fly me safely if not for my sake
then for all them kids i got
and all my blogfiendss
broken harted if their tb
bites the dust in some awful crash
let him have his vegan food
not to be hassled by gay stewards
or kicking brats behind
nor persons overflowing into his seat
when he needs to sleep
when hes thru pacing the isles n aisles
and watching the stars
n lights of distant cities behind their walls of chloroform
make the olde being so lonely so lonely
next posty will be from bewda-pesto
zwak!

    Looking forward to the Euro-travelogue, especially dark and mysterious Transylvania. Post them photos, TB!

    Good luck with your jazz quest, just finished some nice Appalatian today with fave friends of the river. Will offer a selection next you’re in Atlanta.

    Hi SK. Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite authors. With “American Gods”, be patient with the beginning, gets very surreal, you will love the manifestations of the gods. He also writes for children, my girls LOVE “Coraline” and the DVD of “Mirror Mask” and your Doodles may like them too- very sinister in parts, so perhaps you or NK should have a flick beforehand…. He has written another one for younger children with wonderful illustrations called “The Wolves in the Walls”. As for buying CDs – ALWAYS buy my special faves and support the ones I love so they can keep going. With others or one offs – I go the download. To you and all those travelling with you – safety, success and detatch. Big Loves, Kate

    To Flounce: “Etymology: perhaps of Scandinavian origin; akin to Norwegian flunsa to hurry
    1 a : to move with exaggerated jerky or bouncy motions (flounced about the room, jerking her shoulders, gesticulating — Agatha Christie) ; also : to move so as to draw attention to oneself flounced into the lobby> b : to go with sudden determination (flounced out in a huff)”

    the approach of the unconscious
    produces a panic
    in civilised people
    believing it to be the territory of madness
    the intellect
    zen dude
    has no objection to analysing the unconscious
    as a passive object
    but to really let the unconscious go it’s wandering ways
    to experience it as reality
    is something that exceeds the courage of the average
    european
    he prefers simply to not understand this problem
    I know, how very american of me, shit
    I’ve judged myself
    faced my bullshit
    do the same
    try it
    its freeing, truth
    that spine straightener of yours said so
    the experience of the unconscious
    not the understanding
    the experience
    is personal,global,timeless,female
    and yes a bit elusive and strange
    modern mans head leans a bit too far in the opposite direction
    forgot the unmodern woman
    Jacob dreams of Melusina
    he can’t remember in the morning
    vague feelings impressions that haunt him
    he knows they are there
    where did they go?

    Welcome (back) to Europa

    I live on an island off the coast. You might know it. The cherries here are in full blossom and some of the fey have woken up. A little grumpy, but the fold oak don’t mind.

    Home again, but I’m a long way from the land of the Horse People (what did you call ’em? Mane men? Good one).

    How can you not fall in love with Pest?

    For a good time try Cafe Eklektica on Semmelweis Utca opposite the English language bookshop (and tell Andi that Harry says hi. How quickly she forgets) or perhaps 1000 Teas down the south end of Vaci Utca with its little courtyard and the ghost of an English pilgrim downing endless thimbles of oolong to the sound of dueling kotos.

    Just a couple of snapshots I still can recall.

    Myself? Well, I’ve just come back from a little trip around Gascony and Aragon: We can’t all be as glamorous and bohemian as you (“this niche ain’t big enough for the few of us…”) but some of us damn well try.

    Hi
    You`ve got quite a sharp memory…. Affinity! What a band! One of the big collectibles on the Vertigo label. A friend of mine had/has it. Never listened to it though, or maybe we did on one of those long gone acidtrips when the world was a mystery (still is….) and music was a message from the gods…..? Anyway, it`s all gone now and instead I keep listening to “Lost” over and over and over again. One of the great Church songs never to be forgotten, never one to get tired of, just shimmering and glowing and shining in Infinity! Every time sounding NEW! Why? Because “Sometimes I`m wondering under prehistoric skies, I feel it`s all beginning right before my eyes. I must go back, redesign my love…….”
    What a start, what a teasing, mysterious, tentative, frugal but ingenious and judicious beginning leading to wonder and perplexity – that this guy invokes in you.
    So I keep on listening, out of time, out of space.
    So, I`m contemplating moving this body of mine to Bristol to partake in realtime churchmusic, although it`s a long way from where this “I” presently reside.
    “Lost” would do the trick though…
    God! We`re a weird lot…..!!

    speaking of guilt…

    fletcher christian, quetzalcoatl, ect… now there’s some synchronicity…

    judas priest, where 2 begin… let’s say the burning of that little book depository at Alexandria…

    Now, you can imagine there’s got to be a few g*a*p*s in continuity of western civ that…

    …that special little world dominating old time religion doesn’t care to mention…

    (espicially, say if you where raised in rabid x-ian-fundimentalist environment like i was… poor sods, but that’s another story… you with me b.raine?)

    it’s the picture of history we are all missing,

    so many g*a* p* s*

    …in history,

    in time,

    in understanding

    the nature

    of the past…

    …it’s the how’s, and why’s, and who’s and the how many…

    …the variations, that is, betwwen the multitudes of mixtures of paganism, x-ianity, and judaism…

    …at and arround 0-300 AD,

    and that’s just the tip of the gnostic ice berg…

    fyi:

    interesting fact,

    the jesus of the gspl judas was not

    monotheist…
