normally mad

as 2012 nears its end

things get madder and madder

madder sea madder field madder lake

its insanity out there

people arguing people cursing people lying

conditions seem to align for dissent

no one can trust anyone with anything

yeah faking it or just scraping by

so much stuff to sort through

no source is accepted as indisputable

it seems you must question everything

nothing is a given

conspiracies abound round paranoia

join the queues who accuse

i dont trust myself anymore

i mean who do you believe….?

halfway thru the movie

the good guys are turning out to be villains in spades

everytime the villain shows his face

some of us kids scream out ..oh no there he is..!

the villain looks at us and says shhhh!

hes angry with us now…!

the rest of the kids in the audience turn round frowning

and so it is the villain appearing …us screaming….

why cant the others see him there threatening the heroes and heroines?

ha ha in the sauna theyre arguing over the amount of steam

in the pool some stupid swimming club has monopolised 4 of the lanes

the rest of us swim up n down bumping into each other

people i dont even know say hello to me

hey sk …!

a guy calls out

see you at the ent cent with simple minds…!

ok i say

you will!

i thought i was alone in this crowd…..

persecution causes deception

causing more persecution n need for more deception…

i lie under torture to make it stop

i rat out everybody even myself

i deny christ before that cock crows thrice

yeah you know the nazarene …says someone

nah…not me…i never seen ‘im ..i hear myself croak

in chambers of my heart jesus and my father and my heavenly father

they watch on

sad at my wrong decisions yet mostly understanding

abide with us…they say ….

meanwhile in the turmoil of the real life

the hurly fucking burly baby

dog eat dog eat dog eat dog

cat fuck screaming cat

pig snort lion roar

eagle soar

skyscraper carnivore ….

        The new Kilbey Kennedy album ‘You Are Everything’ is being made available via a ‘pledge’ system, whereby people can choose from a variety of options to receive the music (and optional extras) if they are willing to donate in advance.

        Check out this link (if you haven’t received the email) which shows you the menu of options available:

        http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/kilbeykennedy

        This type of ‘crowdsourcing’ has been modelled successfully by other artists (i.e. Marillion, Amanda Palmer) and is a means to allow for monies to be mainlined to the people directly involved.

        This could be the way forward, as other economic models within the music industry are not weighted in favour of the artists themselves. Steve’s recent postings relating to many troubles historically have served to highlight this.

          Spot On – Stephen !!!

          …and it just feels good to know how important the artists
          and their dedicated fans are working to change a bad business
          plan into something we all can feel a part of and continue the
          ‘line in the sand’ …but, we need to work hard to achive the success
          required to ensure the cost/volume/profit is ongoing and projections
          are attainable for our beloved artists………………this just feels right.

    Aladdin Insane….what is sane? ‘Sanus’ in the Latin means to be ‘healthy’ or ‘sound’….I know that Steve’s sound and sounds keep me healthy and sane…a voice of sanity in a world of superficiality and spiritual aridity…

    Won’t you give me some bloodlike guarantee
    I’ve been listening to myself too long
    And they’re making a prophet out of me
    I’m as empty as a shell can ever be
    I’ve been walking through the desert
    No it must have been the library
    Reading a book which once gave me hope
    Now it’s making a fool out of me
    I’m as empty as a shell can ever be
    Lazy dreaming, half remembering, half remarking to myself
    Never noticed that the crowds were leaving
    Never looked for anyone else

    Now it’s market day almost every day
    Yet they give away their love for free
    I’m just waiting for a ship to come
    And it’s making a slave out of me
    I’m as empty as a shell can ever be
    Lazy dreaming, half remembering, half remarking to myself
    Never noticed that the crowds were leaving
    Never looked for anyone else
    Hello sweet creature
    Won’t you give me some bloodlike guarantee
    I’ve been listening to myself too long
    I’ve been walking through the desert
    Must have been the library

    The prophets were lonely seers and visionaries who saw their gift as a double-edged sword…ecstatic connection & awesome responsibility…

    Keep singing…keep painting…keep writing…keep dancing…keep thinking…keep fearlessly speaking…keep loving…keep making those cosmic sounds man!

    I feel like writing
    Something poetic
    But right fucking now
    I’m going to ask for your
    Prayers that hurricane Sandy
    Does not wipe us off the map
    Like Irene did a
    Little more than a year ago…

    For folks who don’t know me, well
    I help run a little community
    Art center called
    The Main Street Museum
    We feature artist and musicians
    In a mind dazzling array of diversity!

    I’ve been part of this little collective
    For 15 years
    And now because I have little
    Else better to do I work here full time..

    We do amazing shit.
    And hope to continue doing so
    Long past 2012
    And the end of the world..

    Pray for us.
    I will pray 4 you.
