The Calm

September 5, 2013

I’m waiting for the calm I’m stepping in the weeds I’m ready for the clouds to rain down on me seeping in the ground and running to the sea making my peace and evaporating we’re all touching a different world at arms length but still so far away shrouded in the dark of night and […]

The Walks

September 2, 2013

It might not sound like it, but this song is an experiment. I wanted to do two things. The first was write a song where the lyrics could function on a page as prose, with punctuation instead of line breaks, etc. The other thing was using a minimalist live drum kit consisting of a snare […]

Bad Goodbye

December 23, 2012

Notes on Marx and the Project of Ideology

October 16, 2011

Today I pulled together some loosely connected thoughts I’ve been sorting out.  I’m working on a print publication–for now things will get posted here.  I’m writing a lot, but mostly I do my editing on People’s Plaza, in the cold, on limited battery power, etc., behind the Teach-In booth.  It’s an experiment. I’m acutely aware […]
