It all leads back to Black Sheep.
If you rub a cat's fur the wrong way you risk a hiss and a scratch. If you slide your fingers across a plank of wood you risk a hand covered in splinters. Such is Tetsuo. Such also is the atom bomb country we slurp around in. A mushroom cloud need not form to create mass destruction of civilization. It happened when the credit card was formed. A golden rectangle- the longest running joke for profit. But who is profiting from your rectangles?? I don't just mean oblong square. I'm talking 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144 233 377 600. Some Fibonacci shit. It attracts your eye whether you know it or not. It's the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, et cetera. Credit cards are the same shape as the doors you walk through... the doors which supposedly equate opportunity, right? But the shape is ripping our country apart. Nobody can see straight anymore. They only see in images flashing by. But the focus required for these artforms (which have been painstakingly crafted)... Jesus, nobody has the patience to sit for a half hour without some excitement, right? Sit in silence for a single minute. See what comes from it.
Bob's playing some bluesy shit on MOT. I wish he still played the real psycho jazz like he used to, the avant garde shit. I haven't even heard him play Mingus and I listened to Bob's show every night for years. But I respect him for clinging to jazz in a time when few care. I mean that in the most general sense. You can scream your lungs out and the public only scoffs and walks out. These fuckin bands are boring. Hollywood is just a big ass joke. So what? SO WHAT? If the kids were disenfranchised 80 years ago I dunno what their situation is now. The four of us are still pissed, at least. We still have issues with our society which refuse to resolve. The first step is to accept this. Then you spit in its face. Excuse us for not playing the kiss ass game of our contemporaries. Art soars on a higher plane thatn congeniality and glad-handing and there are those who would believe that rock music has crashed and is smouldering....
It's all in favor of laptop D's and country pop acoustic shit. Doesn't this country's war drive anyone nuts? Doesn't the public education system push anyone to action? Well, before I pass judgment, I'll say that Tetsuo hasn't contributed much in the way of social reform and charity. BECAUSE We spend every waking hour scraping together a living a pleasing our fucking professors. But it's all a sham. We all jumped to higher education to better ourselves but we've only bittered ourselves. So twice a month we get together to try desperately to fight this wayward gold-plated feudal system with music. Four people can't do this alone. You wanna be in our clan? There's only one rule: NO FUCKIN HALF STEPPIN. We place one foot a good distance in fronta the other. We don't shuffle and we don't stop. We're making strides and unless a force of faces (including yours) joins the ranks and walks with us, we can't proceed. Our race will continue to sweep itself under the rug it bought from the internet. Do you see? We gotta see your faces. Gotta see your heads nod. We wann fuckin get down, right? But it ain't no fun playin duck duck goose with three ducks.
My neighbor has a fountain in his front yard. I can't wait till it freezes over and the sound of gurgling water turns into the sound of water splashing against ice. It all turns to ice after a while. But our particles are movin' Ain't yours?!
"Not that I like talking of the things that I posess
I know that some have more, while others do have less
It's just that I wanna say, I live a life in a day
Didnt have to wait till I was lonely old and gray
I simply put my foot forward in a direction
That's called a step then I follow with the next one
Kept on steppin, no matter what happened
Kept my eyes open, and kept hands clappin
Did what I had to do when I had to do it
Didn't wanna say ho when I surely knew it"
