Eternally Youthful

When I dress up as a Jester, Holy Fool, or Evil Cenobite. I represent something cosmic in ether and brilliance of humor, contemplation or buffoonery!
I am the evil side of shadowy seduction as the succubus. I love it!
I become youthfully sparkled and my reflection is so.
I say to myself,
“Is that me in the mirror?”
For a short time I wandered into the world of Never-Neverland and my comrade is Peter Pan or Puck from a Midsummer Night’s Dream.
I may walk into the underworld where Pluto escorts me.
I am eternally youthfully and playful,
I love this.
If I could do this as a living and join the circus or a group of wandering bards,
I would!
Yes, I would…
But alas,
I take off my costume of creativity of cosmic proportions,
sliding  into my bed in the wee morning,
I awake to the smell of coffee and…
my mortality!!

Welcome to the Music business you’re fucked!

Synchromatic antidotes of his journey reflect what I have been wondering about for some time because they are very much based on synchronicity, music and culture. Yet, this does not surprise me. My antenna is up and I am digging it!!

It is an adventure to go downtown to help at the Punk Museum at KGB Studios. This evening was on Valentine’s Day and I was thrilled to listen to Martin Atikins speak about his life. Considered for his post-punk drumming experience with Public Image he has a lot more experiences to inform us on. His concepts and theories about punk rock are quite amusing and intellectually satisfying. His gentle ways mixed with the word “Fuck” are nice touches amongst his many stories. If you happen to take his picture, he has his stanch down hard, which is bent over with an upturned glare.

one from my generation that still projects the rebellious spark and is still affirming it. 

This is the look of confrontation and knowing which reveals a lot about his character and reflects what the hell he is all about. I did not feel any pretentious qualities in his presence. He was easy, accessible and most likely a very excellent teacher. It inspires me to meet up with such a man as he, one from my generation that still projects the rebellious spark and is still affirming it.  People talk about 2012 being the end of the world; instead I feel it is a time where many will go back to more Intimate relationships and basic communications. Tonight is an example of this and I was glad to be part of it.

Fear Issue # 16

Flipside # 16

This is the first issue I worked on. This is called the “fear” issue. The cover was put together by Al Flipside and myself and also initiated my place as a staph writer for the fanzine.

Be More than a Witness…”do it yourself”

Learning while doing  is the process of achieving some strange goal. That is what I am going to start covering in my BLOG… and other stuff too… I am going back to the basics…quality over quantity…

OK here I go to yak, yak, yak.. and I like to… I just started this and here I go..  When I started working on Flipside Fanzine in the late 1970s the term “Be More Than A Witness” was a very serious motivation behind the scene of a fanzine. Yes there was the ideas of anarchy but what I feel really highlights this period of  punk, what really was happening.., was something very productive not destructive. There of course were the fanzines, but most importantly there were the record labels, and  the fans who were all supporting the bands. We all had a close symbolic relationship. Even to this day some 30 years later there is a strange kind of knowing bond between us. If anything has survived besides the music from that early punk period it is this. Getting involved in doing something. Now you can have your podcast, A Punk Rock Museum, play your music at the local pub, or maybe sell your art at the local community store. This is all going on now and lots of it. I know about DIY.
