The Unites States EMPIRE



    It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, and aeroplanes
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs,
Don't mis-serve your own needs
Speed it up a notch, speed, grunt, no, strength
The ladder starts to clatter
With a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry
With the Furies breathing down your neck
Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh oh, overflow, population, common group
But it'll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me

Contemporary CUT AND PASTE tools of the trade.



 by e.

Description and operation - A pair of scissors as the pair observed above consists of two pivoted blades. In lower-quality scissors like one's found at stores like Target or Kmart, the cutting edges are not particularly that sharp; it is primarily the shearing action between the two blades that cuts the material. In high-quality scissors like the ones observed above, the blades can be both extremely sharp, and tension sprung – to increase the cutting and shearing tension only at the exact point where the blades meet. The hand movement, like the hand seen above,  (pushing with the thumb, pulling with the fingers) can add to this tension. An ideal example is in high-quality tailor's scissors or shears, which need to be able to perfectly cut (and not simply tear apart) delicate cloths such as chiffon and silk. Mechanically, scissors are a first-class double-lever with the pivot acting as the fulcrum. For cutting thick or heavy material, the mechanical advantage of a lever can be exploited by placing the material to be cut as close to the fulcrum as possible while being careful to not cut yourself because accidents can happen. For example, if the applied force (at the blue handles) is twice as far away from the fulcrum as the cutting location (i.e., the point of contact between the blades), the force at the cutting location is twice that of the applied force at the handles. fulcrum. It's such great damn and underused word these days.
Scissors cut material by applying at the cutting location a local shear stress which exceeds the material's shear strength. Some scissors have an appendage, called a finger brace or finger tang (not to be confused with the word THANG), below the index finger hole for the middle finger to rest on to provide for better control and more power in precision cutting. A finger tang can be found on many quality scissors (including inexpensive ones) and especially on scissors for cutting my long hair (see hair scissors pictured above, again). In hair cutting, some claim the ring finger (or in my case ring fingers) is inserted where some place their index finger, and the little finger rests on the finger tang. For people who do not have the use of their hands, there are specially designed foot-operated scissors. Some quadriplegics can use a motorized mouth-operated style of scissor. The moral of the story here is to be very grateful if you have all of your existing limbs, also if you were able to purchase higher quality scissors rather than those at blue lit sales than that's a great thing/thang too, and finally that word

Stalin's winter spared no gulag.


Winter Night
by Boris Pasternak

And far and near the blizzard raced,
Through every england.
A burning candle lit the place,
A burning candle.
As to swarm of summer moths
Are flame and glow,
The window frame attractive was
To flakes of snow.
There on the pane a frosted rescue
Grew: circles, angles.
A burning candle lit the desk,
A burning candle.
On the enlightened ceiling easel
Fell shapes retracing
Entangled arms, entangled knees,
Fates interlacing.
And thuddingly two little shoes
Were dropping down,
And wax in tears, heat-melted loose,
Dripped on gown.
And melted all in silver gloom,
Obscure and swirling.
A burning candle lit the room,
A candle burning.
Caught in a draft, the flame would swing,
And stormy passions
Spread wings like tempted angels, in
Cruciform fashion,
That winter, blizzards held the pace;
Their calls returning,
A burning candle lit the place,
A candle burning...

...regarding the process of creative writing, as variant.



Material evidence, such as envelopes and other scrap paper, suggests that Emily Dickinson wrote down ideas for poems wherever she was inspired—in the kitchen or outdoors, for example—but contemporary accounts indicate that her formal writing was done in her bedroom, a place that, as she once described to her niece Martha, afforded her "freedom." 
Located in the southwest corner on the second floor at the Homestead, the poet's bedroom included a small work table with a single drawer. There, she could work late into the night on her poetry and letters.
Niece Martha described her aunt's "way of writing" as taking place not only "upstairs in her own room, watching with her plants lest they freeze in zero midnights," but also "by the little table in the dining-room."  From the dining room Dickinson could see the plants in her conservatory.
Other relatives recalled hearing Dickinson compose her poems aloud. Her cousin Louisa remembered: "I know that Emily Dickinson wrote most emphatic things in the pantry, so cool and quiet, while she skimmed the milk; because I sat on the footstool behind the door, in delight, as she read them to me." More typically, Dickinson shared poems with family and friends through correspondence. After her death, her survivors were surprised to find that the poet had kept even more of her work private.  Among her papers were forty handmade booklets (now referred to as "fascicles") in which she gathered more than 800 of her poems.  bye.

Pocahontas, Collusion and dealin' the color of Green.


America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

      Abraham Lincoln



























Murray Hamilton (March 24, 1923 – September 1, 1986) was an American stage, screen, and television character actor who appeared in such films as Anatomy of a Murder, The Hustler, The Graduate, The Amityville Horror and Jaws and Jaws 2.

Born in Washington, North Carolina, Hamilton displayed an early interest in performing during his days at Washington High School just before America's entry into World War II. Bad hearing kept him from enlisting, so he moved to New York City as a 19-year-old to find a career on stage. 

Hamilton died of lung cancer- and not by an attack by a Great White Shark - at age 63, and is interred at Oakdale Cemetery in his native Washington, North Carolina. 

Hamilton had always expressed happiness that the sharks in the first two Jaws films had died before he did, so let's hope for his soul and for the souls of the towns of Amity and Amityville that they don't re-make this damn movie too. bye.

Stasis in darkness.
Then the substanceless blue   
Pour of tor and distances.

God’s lioness,   
How one we grow,
Pivot of heels and knees!—The furrow

Splits and passes, sister to   
The brown arc
Of the neck I cannot catch,

Nigger-eye   
Berries cast dark   
Hooks—

Black sweet blood mouthfuls,   
Shadows.
Something else

Hauls me through air—
Thighs, hair;
Flakes from my heels.

White
Godiva, I unpeel—
Dead hands, dead stringencies.

And now I
Foam to wheat, a glitter of seas.   
The child’s cry

Melts in the wall.   
And I
Am the arrow,

The dew that flies
Suicidal, at one with the drive   
Into the red

Eye, the cauldron of morning.

clip from 1991 ...


Come as you are, as you were
As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend
As a known enemy
Take your time, hurry up
The choice is yours, don't be late
Take a rest as a friend
As an old
Memoria, memoria
Memoria, memoria
Come doused in mud, soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend, as a friend
As an old
Memoria, memoria
Memoria, memoria
And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I

"Since 1950 I have been keeping a film diary. I have been walking around with my Bolex and reacting to the immediate reality: situations, friends, New York, seasons of the year. On some days I shot ten frames, on others ten seconds, still on others ten minutes. Or I shot nothing. When one writes diaries, it's a retrospective process: you sit down, you look back at your day, and you write it all down. To keep a film (camera) diary, is to react (with your camera) immediately, now, this instant: either you get it now, or you don't get it at all. To go back and shoot it later, it would mean restaging, be it events or feelings. To get it now, as it happens, demands the total mastery of one's tools (in this case, Bolex): it has to register the reality to which I react and also it has to register my state of feeling (and all the memories) as I react. Which also means, that I had to do all the structuring (editing) right there, during the shooting, in the camera. All footage that you'll see in the Diaries is exactly as it came out from the camera: there was no way of achieving it in the editing room without destroying its form and content. Walden contains materials from the years 1965-69, strung together in chronological order. For the soundtrack I used some of the sounds that I collected during the same period: voices, subways, much street noise, bits of Chopin (I am a romantic), and other significant and insignificant sounds."

2019 online published article on my punk/hardcore days living at The Kingshead Inn, Norfolk-Virginia

The King’s Head was more than a place to hear local music. “Mid-90’s hardcore was a lot different than it is now,” Steel said. “We were all these outcasts and misfits, and we all gathered together for the same thing.” He went on to describe it as a “communal vibe—excitement in the air.” Persons describes the atmosphere as “Smoky, as that was allowed in those days, dark, mysterious, like anything was possible. The way all good dive bars feel.” In Person’s documentary, Hardcore Norfolk, interviews capture this communal spirit. “The '90’s were great, at least here,” Todd Owens mused in the documentary. “The audience was more into the band—into the show—than there to be seen.” That communal vibe didn’t just extend to the audience, either. “A lot of bands liked [The King’s Head] for the atmosphere,” Lewis said. “You wouldn’t be judged. No one would judge you there.”

The King’s Head became known as one of, if not the, epicenters of the punk and hardcore scene. Lewis, the former bouncer at the King’s Head and founder of Lucifer and the Crackwhores (“The name alone brought people out,” he laughs), said he remembers Norfolk as welcoming. “Virginia Beach, if you didn’t know the right people, they didn’t want to know you,” Lewis said. “Norfolk was like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ Norfolk had the music scene, all the punk and hardcore. Virginia Beach had Sublime.”

“Those older people, the those hippies and weirdos from the first days of rock n’ roll weren’t coming out to shows anymore, for the most part,” Persons said. “It was a new young audience who had never experienced that special time.” That young, new audience would set the standard throughout the '90’s and ignite the Norfolk hardcore scene.
