Suggestions for 3 attribution labels better than “content creator”
Authorrex: authors which really author the shit out of it.
Authorette: authors just getting started with smaller keyboards.
Authoroni: authors like me just repackaging the ramen.
If you think we’re gonna make it, you better hang on to yourself.

What was that lyric from Jello Biafra again? Oh, yeah!
You ain’t the cops. It ain’t anarchy.
Nazi punks, nazi punks, nazi punks, F*CK OFF!
Imagine guitar noises too, if it helps.

I’m just noticing that a lot of my ground truth on matters internetty is based on the proposition that the internet is on a continuum with other means of individual creative expression; internet, tv, movies, radio…(skip ahead, brother)…live voice, our bodies. And that it is also this way with tools of individual education, certainly. But (ding!) others may see the thing differently. Perhaps as primarily a token game platform, or a herding mechanism.

If you are thinking about doing something a little gangsta this afternoon—or even if not—have a listen to this before you go, just to sort of loosen up :-)
Life Is Good In the Greenhouse
A great little ditty from a great little combo from way back when…
Everybody says something, truth lies or both
But dear all your hot air don’t encourage growth
Do you wonder why I look so fresh?
Do you wonder why I look so tall?
Do you wonder why you’ll never ever move me?
Life is good in the greenhouse
Rather be a plant than be your Mickey Mouse
— XTC from Go2, 1978
Heart Shaped Tub — Hey, Bubbles!
Especially satisfying is the passage starting at 3:48 or so. She holds a very long note over what I can only describe as intense humming. :-) Never fails to straighten my spine.
J Dilla - Donuts
You really should listen to the whole box, not just grab The New, Mash, and Time: The Donut of the Heart (although they are delicious) and think you’ve tasted pretty much the entire album.
Just sit down for a little less than three quarters of an hour and listen to Donuts. An astounding audio time travel road trip hangout at professor tensors hyper ovoid musical loop farm (city version). So many little audio tricks, so many genres, so much quirky imagination, stuff you heard on fuzzy FM in ’74, blooped back on the loop, and the tomorrow people! Go get your girlfriend…because dancing.
I generally try not to pay attention to what machines suggest I do, but my player recently said I might like J Dilla’s Donuts. ❡ Haven’t heard smthng this evocative and intriguing in years. ❡ Moved I was. Remember, they’re donuts, if you have too many you might get sick, AF.
Isn't Dogmatic, Pedantic & Servile an intellectual property law firm?
A quote from Agnes Callard in an essay Art Is for Seeing Evil There is a certain noble lie that we tell students about art. I was told it, and I hear it retold often by those defending great books and humanistic education. The lie is that art is a vehicle for personal moral edification or social progress, that art aims at empathy and happiness and world peace and justice and democracy and the brotherhood of man.
