how to justify this indulgence? yet another post, numero seven hundred and something or other. Find a thread, a commonality. Well, reader….these three songs seemed to connect in my mind and my heart, suggested a tangible mood or feeling, a more obvious one perhaps – there are no flameco infused hip-hop, jazz, fusion, avant-garde edm iceskating jungle beats woven into this to throw/ impress/show off my intellect – but i like to think each one as a journey through a day, a dark day where one longs for a helping hand, some tenderness and basic kindness to guide them from morning through night, wake to sleep.
Marvin Gaye (1976)
When Fear & Desire not so much collide as bump and grind; a sexual, spiritual remedy 70’s style.

When you wake up first thing and you got needs, ya know?
When the cosmic trigger shoots you right between the solar plexus. *
*As time separates myself from my past, lazer guided melodies sounds better than ever, just lovely. Soothing, ethereal, entrancing, creates the kind of mood i long for but mostly fail to reach in this waking life.
Queens of the Stone Age – misfit love (2007)
My Bloody Valentine – Sometimes (1991)

Oh yes indeed, ladies and gentlemen of the free-k market! come take my hand you fireball xl5 you stumble forth through the dark grass to the waiting place where one can dance, drink, fuck, sing, eat and fight to their hearts desire and until those sorry bastard faced, joyless cows come trudging home take my hand and touch my skin feel the fuzz lick those lips taste the salt warmth brush the wings of desire sultry princes wanton goddesses writhe cast off decency modesty tax bill bank fuckery burn burn your energy eat fire consume one another in natures black hole shadows pull our hips make them sweat sway smash stroke let us kiss the stars hugs the trees ride comets sink into the waves let us move surf the light fantasmic burning past trails break open our hearts bleed into the earth start over in space post nuclear bliss… only, don’t be a cunt ok?
