day one...

so yuh... obvs i haven't really been on top of this blog in awhile... and i kinda doubt i will be going forward... but who really knows, i am a strange and broken animal....
as for right now i have this thing i can't get out of my head. so i decided to treat it with the same lack of effort i treat pretty much everything...


my best friend died a while back... he was kinda a dick... but he was my brother... i met him on his birthday... friday the 13th, january, 1995... i know this is super creepy and all, but i think imma start taking selfies and photoshopping him into them... from time to time i might even try and do a good job... but for the most part this is a very selfish exercise on my part and very few fucks will be given in the quality department...
and i know i posted this the last time i bothered to use this thing... but it's kinda pertinent.

i want to die rejoicing.

prayer of death- entrance
I want to die without no fear
I want to die rejoicing
I want to meet my brother there
And hear his glorious voice sing
Could not bear it to be left alone
In this world so full of sorrow
So if you leave this world today
I'll follow you tomorrow
I want to be prepared to die
In any kind of weather
I want for you to be ready too
We'll fly away together
If you think your life will have no end
Your foolish days are numbered
Go and waste your time trying to pretend
Still you're bound for eternal slumber
And the wicked men who rule this land
With all their wealth and power
Are bound to die like you and I
And none can tell the hour
I want to live in freedom now
I will not wait for Heaven
I want to sing til Babylon falls
And we all will be forgiven
I want die without no fear
How I want to die rejoicing
How I want to meet my brother there
And hear his glorious voice sing

thee physical



so today pictureplane's new album thee physical received it's physical release.
travis egedy is a prophet, a poet, and a friend... not just to me, but to anyone fortunate enough to interact with him. admittedly this statement is based on a night spent in his company bingeing on mdma with some other close friends... a night of music, lasers, drag, shoe licking.
still rolling on our way to the airport i handed travis the camera and asked him what informs his work... the following is his response.



his new video for post physical is perfect... chaotic, beautiful, and without pretense.

nike7up/33:33

always fucking killing it. nike7up just dropped yet another insanely uh-mazing mixtape... expansive without ever being unfocused. nike7up continues to manipulate elements of pop without being ironic, but instead inspiring.

division of labor.

myself and U>L>S>A are playing some noise/beats/imagery this friday at the division of labor festival at the lab in the san francisco mission... though personally i'm more excited about the rest of the lineup...


particularly streetwalker, and total accomplishment... i played with streetwalker some months back in new york at pendu disco... and they were fucking sick... and i've been listening to everything total accomplishment has up on their soundcloud fer like evs... i strongly suggest taking some decent acid, coming out, and having your mind blown.

OOZE by Streetwalker
Benny's Beat Studio Jam by totalaccomplishment

"Division of Labor playfully examines experimental music, sound, performance, and DJ culture, bringing together distinctive artists and uniting diverse audiences from within The Lab’s innovative creative community and beyond. For the past 16 years, the Lab has occupied the Redstone Building—a landmark encapsulating a specific history of union organization and labor strikes. Division of Labor is inspired by the Redstone building's rich history and coincides with our annual juried exhibition, A floorless room without walls. The gallery ceiling serves as both site and subject of A floorless room without walls."

loved to death.

so my friends at loved to death make shit... like the best shit... like ever. they do taxidermy work... jewelry, hair pieces, curio's, etc.
everything is made with care and then some... nothing is ever killed to be used... all made from recycled and salvaged parts, and all are made in memorial to the animal that has passed.





the loved to death shop is also the home of articulated gallery... which has been home to some absurdly amazing art show's over the past year... they're having an anniversary show on august 6th featuring the photography work of tommy ferguson.
there will be booze and darkness, with myself and nako providing musix. come hang k?

those kids obsess on musix like i do... so these two trax are fer them... they fer y'all too so feel free to grab 'em.
chelsea wolfe... insanely beautiful as always... (on tour with liturgy this month... and playin 120 minutes in sept)... and nike7up coming through 120 minutes in august.

My Sweet Satan

 (screencap via)
Jim Van Bebber (pictured) produces exquisitely dark, self-financed, goresploitation films that explore America's history of ad-hoc cults, ritual killing and serial murder with an obsessional relish.
My Sweet Satan, 1994, is Van Bebber's take on the 1984 murder of Long Island teenager Gary Lauwers. The murder was ostensibly over a small drug debt but was later claimed by his murderer 'Acid King' Ricky Kasso to be a human sacrifice.  

Watch the classic short here: part 1/ part 2
