The ramblings of a lunatic mind......

I remember when Gene Eugene died and how vacant the music world seemed to be. It truly is special when you find an artist that can objectify the world apart from your own language. Gene was a Christian Music artist who did not preach to you in his songs. He expressed the frustration of the world and of the people (B)eing in the world. Being that I am not a Christian by any traditional standards, it was refreshing to listen to someone express such sentiments while holding to a faith that offered comfort.

Faith in anything can offer comfort but it is a matter of finding something that can comfort you to the extent that your submission to any failures of theory don't bother you. Let’s not kid ourselves, unless you can prove first cause "Everything is a leap of faith". Finding something to believe in provides the frame by which we can make sense of life.

I guess that is what always bothered me about those who choose to define their world by a single emotional state. During the late 80's and early 90's (when I was clubbing) all the Goth's and Industrial's always made me laugh in that they did exactly what they rebelled against. Wore the same clothes, painted their faces smoked the same cloves, etc. There was no real rebellion against another group, merely adopting the same process and decorating it differently.

The vacancy is to belong. The rare instance that one finds one's self as anti-social is almost disingenuous. Even the anti-social finds a way to belong; through art for example.

YZ has filed a vacancy for me. In frankness it has pulled my last tooth that was biting the apple of the Bush Agenda. Specifically the idea that we need to be told to fear "something". We always need to fear "something", the question is how do we respond to that fear. More so, fwhat you fear should not be mandated. If we find that what we thought was right is reversed by a re-evaluation of ourselves, and in turn we are defined as hypocrites...then we all have something in common.

Your Party will not save you.

Some quotes to share>

“The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.”

"The limits of my language means the limits of my world.”
