an apologist's jism rift

Dear Independer,

I am writing to inform you about something I witnessed last night. Some guy, dressed in a dirty office worker's shirt, wearing what appeared to be a giant starfish on his head, was claiming to be from the Tilburg Tourism Board. He accosted the nice people that were going to a concert by noisily hoisting up a large, and I might add, rather scientifically inaccurate brain for all to see, claiming (he) "was giving Tilburg something thoughtful". He then affixed the brain to a string pulley that ran from a lovely Art Deco lamp post to one of Tilburg's finest bronze statues, that of a lady in repose, with her hand pointing to the sky. The pulley system made it appear as though the bronze statue was pointing at the brain.

Now. Independer, I must ask you, as you are the voice of the streets and as such, carry a grave responsibility. Will you work with the proper authorities to have this man dealt with? While I understand that the Netherlands has fairly relaxed laws regarding public and artistic expression, I do not believe this sort of anarchism should be condoned, especially under the umbrella of what I was hoping to be a family friendly concert festival.

I thank you for your attention to this matter.
Yours sincerely,
Frank Virgin

not sharing but...

It occurs to me that not everything needs to be shared in a public forum. Of course, there's the online journal blargh, the kind of thing that rambles endlessly and shows you its pancakes and straw-grabbed political joystickery. But then there's the art part, the shit that we're supposed to just poo out and have it look majestic, or at least be quaffable as evidence of artistic method. I guess I'm a little bit cautious with that stuff, or at least have been for the past month whilst steaming away my glands and soldered shoulders, here in the lush huzz of crickets and sultry-dogged New England. I prefer silence these days, silence in the lack of interference or personal wriggling on farce books and other corporate lassoed meme-huts. Okay, a tweet or two, sure. Maybe an instant graham here or there, to let friends know that I still cough like a fish out of water. But shit, when I'm out on my bike later today, do I need to pack an iPhone and burp out the grind of a podcast or some echo chamber of locusts? I could, but I do that every year, and every year I delete these files, because, fuck an A, does the world need to know? Maybe. Maybe there's a worthy echo chamber to pursue when the weather snaps and I'm thinking in terms of less haze and more grazing. Right now though, I'm hopelessly romanticizing the silence, as it's not really silence. My head is busier than ever and I'm bursting with busted duct taped seams, craving and lusting, but not giving a damn about sharing it. But anyway, off to the trail. I'll fill you in with spurious details when the yawn departs and there's an itch to press a button again.

part one of the Great Acquiescing



Apparently certain social media outlets are beginning to compel their users to use their "real names" vs say, their home-brewed non-Christian ones, ie., baptized names, state-acknowledged names, aka, the names they use to operate in the faux-called "real world". Hmmph, I say. But in all fairness, one has to wonder: is it the CORPORATION knocking? I know they're doing their darnedest to colorize us bleakly into culpable winces that yell rabbit when they say rabbit and stand up when they want us to and then eat up and prance around like a bunch of drunken pagan fools (minus the pageantry of true drunken pagan foolishness) whenever a new gadget comes out. But really? Now we gotta change over to our former waspish selves in order to get more carbonated beverage ads lobbed at us? Oh, it's a good laugh, I reckon, the day they make me choose between Crank and that other one, that one there, that name, that game, that not-really-one-of-shame-but-one-that-hardly-sparkles-the-same (sorry for the rhyme, my blog, not yours). So, um… well? I suppose I'll continue on as follows, until the machine says otherwise. I'm sure it'll be funny when Crank suddenly has to wear the badge of his former, kinda bland, Protestant-sounding name. Surely Crank will continue, but if this is the way of the world and its lease on Internet freedoms, you, dear reader, will soon see this blog disappear as well. But, fret not, as I fear nothing in this regard. I mean, dang, we should "get real" anyway, right? Let 'em know who we really are. None of this anonymity, hiding-in-the-woods like a guerrilla hermit or some godless middle-fingering artist-type. Privacy? Nah. Pfff. Undeserved and underrated. If the corporation says I have to do this, then let it be so. I'll cherish the reality of a non-evocative namesake; in so doing, I'll gladly drop my greasy pen and acquiesce to the sword; I'll don my non blinking disaffected hat and adopt a second career as a kinda bland folk singer songwriter with the most quotidian name possible: the one I was born with. 

Wait, aren't all folk singer songwriters kinda bland? 
Oh rats. This is suddenly no longer interesting.
