U STREAM C (SPOILERS (LOL RIGHT))
SO the homey @pyschologyrever put up a link to this review of UPSTREAM COLOR which really helped grease my cogs regarding that beast. Half my crew walked halfway through & I didn’t stick around to see that the sinister pigman is named “The Sampler” but holy shit. (I haven’t read Slate or Salon pieces on this yet. Gonna put that off as long as possible. SO sorry if...

A huge, heavy, old snake, draped in the branches of a tree. Yes, an ancient serpent that’s loathe to move. You can get right in his face & this cold-blooded hulk will show no concern whatsoever. He knows & you know & he knows you know that there is no question that any fight between you would be over before you could even finish noticing that it had begun. Because the way that the...
TOWSON-GLEN ARM FREAKOUTS →
Mike Apichella’s amazing project of collecting & archiving a history of the Towson-Glen Arm underground music scene of north Baltimore County in the 90s is absolutely incredible. The amount of detail & insight & effort put into the project makes it very interesting even for people who aren’t personally connected to this sorta unbelievable explosion of underage avant-garde...
NEW 5 YEAR
plan: star in a film adaptation of THE MARBLED SWARM by Dennis Cooper with soundtrack by Autechre Hopefully ki duk Kim is involved
KIKI'S THEME VIDEO TREATMENT
OK this whole thing hinges on a somewhat simple special effect & a cat costume. The guy wearing the fuzzy black cat with white paws costume would be shrunken down in post production to look about 2&/12 feet tall— about the height a long cat on his hind legs, right? Anyway, at the start, there’s a kind of stiff party going on at the house. A bunch of badasses in indie-rock...
EQUUS EXTENDED →
6 more shows this weekend & next (well 5 now, cuz it’s saturday), if you have yet to see it. And you should because everybody likes it, which means either you will like it or you will have a great time raining on those people’s parade in your inimitable iconoclastic way. I would bus down if you live in NYC and want to have like a real cultural experience instead of that you know...

NOBODY wants to hear any more about it, I know. Cycle’s cycled, time to move on to some other momentary distraction involving distant people all of us can recognize & half of us pretend we can relate to, but OMFG how depressing was it to watch 90% of the music writers on my tl yesterday striking a bboy stance & laughing at the regular degular punters all up in arms about the...
DUDE you know why I went awol on that D&D campaign back then, right? It was a fucking rail shooter. You had buckets & buckets of this world-building history & geography & that original dragon-man race— I remember you literally saying that you’d worked on the setting for years—- but you had no game. That fucking riddle that could definitely not be not solved whose answer you were...
I’m going to have to read a book about Tupac to really flesh this one out but I think the basic premise has legs: Tupac was always a council of dudes (assembled by Suge Knight?) creating the ultimate rapper via committee. Made up of maybe two rappers, a former A&R guy, a successful publicist, advertising exec, etc, etc. And one former dancer with an interesting Panther pedigree who was...

It’s that time of year again. See my tweets today for a rundown of the anxieties filling this thing out induces in me. Also you can click the link if you want to read some tortuous backstory on stuff I’ve made since 009 and/or preview some more of PROSPERITY.
DRAFT 2 OF PROSPERITY 1 SHEET
The ever-encroaching tide of economic inequality that has engulfed our planet stays steadily eroding the hearts of young people everywhere, for whom such forces are the most abstract, less the results of particular decisions made by particular men as they are an inescapable fate wrought by the mortal inadequacy of the preceding generation. The imminent American remake of the austerity measures...

EOTY BEST LIST PT 2: VOL I (English dub)
SOOOO I am gonna try and do an english translation of that last thing. I am currently moving and my studio is in boxes and pieces and most of my completed-songs data is on DVDs in a case that is not available at the moment so I took some caps of a track that’s on Soundcloud to demonstrate a little of wtf I was talking about. It’s not as exciting as one of the more complicated jams (TINY CREATURE...
My best-of/how-to records this year list by Rjyan So after bands there was all those cassettes which I did with Live, except the Dead Preps which was lowercase live (into Cubase) & the IA cd which was two synths (RY30 & AN200 get it?) self-sequenced live into Pro Tools. After that I wanted to bust out of the rigid tendencies of Live, so I made a record sequenced and played without any...
