    I was asleep for most of 2013. Thanks amnio for compiling a list. I bought a couple of records but non ereleased this year, i think. Maybe Fukpig?

    "There aren't too many standouts, ..."! WHAT!! You're shitting me. Imho this has been the best year for releases in the last 5. Easily. Take Gorguts. I all but kicked dirt in on them until Colored Sands. Jaysus. RC was 'good', Gris seemed a bit forced (try Sombres Forêts - La Mort Du Soleil or Loss Of Self - Twelve Minutes instead), couldn't get with the vocals on Subrosa or Inquisition but I found the Agrimonia great.Yeah yeah yeah @ subjectivity. Save it. Here's one non-exhaustive take on 2013: http://www.last.fm/user/amniocentesis/journal/2013/12/18/5z9keg_2013albums

    I told you! It's like a new ice age. Life (if we can call it that!) seems to have vanished from the surface of this virtual-habitat. With your absence, the crowd disbanded with disinterest. You're the glue of this group, Charlie, you're the glue!

    August 2013
  • Mrsixtyfive

    Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleepingAnd the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence

    August 2013
  • Mrsixtyfive

    In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone 'Neath the halo of a street lamp I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share And no one dared Disturb the sound of silence "Fools", said I, "You do not know Silence like a cancer grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you" But my words, like silent raindrops fell And echoed In the wells of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls" And whispered in the sounds of silence

    There's always lightning in your brain, because the clouds never stop rubbing each other. This is what separates us from the circumstantial restraints of physical weather patterns that we're so analogically overattached to.

    Yes, sunshine is a potent anti-depressive for me too. Can't be without sun without more than a couple of days

  • Mrsixtyfive

    I'm too happy to be introspective lately. I think the persistent sunshine is an opiate and I'm really intoxicated.

    I'll believe what you will! I was just describing my perception of the shadows in the cave wall. Being clueless as I am, I always consider the possibility of misinterpretation. Don't stress out and don't give up. Don't stray off the ludic path. I think I heard the album "DJ Corn Mill" played on the radio before. :D

    Man-0-man, this scouring of the archives for the purposes of salting the min(D)e is getting tedious. I give up. Believe what you will. Maybe check these bands: Right up the hipster alleyway...

    As I understood it, your video was a response to my "BINGO!" provocation and not part of the ongoing "pop-song vs. US Constitution" dialectics (which I didn't want to meddle into for fear of getting burned! :) )

    D'aaaw. You sweet Fredo ;) .... but the 'link dis' had zip to do with my response. What set my teeth on edge was the implication that a simplistic 40+ year old pop song was a "far better template for freedom". Not even Pollyanna herself is that douchey so the only other option was a mentally disturbed troll. "... dreadful" was just the icing on the cake. No appreciation for camp clearly. Refugee from 4chan I suspect XD

    As a response to Charlie's delightful video on saturday, here's another nice (imho) video, although not half as funny. I originally intended something of the sort "for every song there's another song expressing the opposite idea" as I recalled the lyrics as "better stop moving...", but it turns out I had a rotting recollection of the song! Oh well, so much for the antithesis...

    V Because the moneyed powers began subverting that brilliant document before the ink was yet dry. It's "special" as a template for freedom (not that it's ever been achieved).

    I'm picking up pitches off of Richter's dirty britches, my own skid marks leaving me in stitches. Charlie's got the golden ticket to the factory, rapping my own shit and talking back to me.

    D'aaaw. Big toothie grin (which is what separates a supercilious ass-hat from a jester). I shit you not. *shockin' your ass like a faulty vibrator / hear me now but probably catch the vibe later*

    I'm sentimental, diluted. You're an asteroid skipping through the ages. We touch on occasion. We touch on topics, the skin of the world. Filling the mystery of the deep with eccentric, arrogant, dodging, persistent Will. Our contact births salience to drown the silence.

    March 2013

    A real character. I'm learning to take quicker cues from the wings. My intuition may be coagulating lately, the white cells are grouping at the surface, securing the perimeter. Soon I'll be pushing 3 ring hopscotch with the best of them, until then Charlie will have to humor my funny bone. Or break it. It's funny because it's true. What separates comedies from tear-jerkers. Chaplin was tragic.

    'Who Flung Pooh?' by George Ovdajungle. A real page turner. And don't miss 'La Cage aux Foulles'! Very fluid. Fairly dark. Bring a hankie. Since no one answered the query: One. Just the one character.

    Aw, leave it to Charlotte to remind me why it's called a shoutbox. "Quick, somebody shoot a hollow point back before awww... too late. Cleanup on isle 3! Time to pick through the latest dump and find what's salvageable..." At least we know where her creativity comes from. Who are we speaking with now? The cage rattler? I love the implied directional forces, that monkey at the zoo must have had a shitload of tension.
