YES, I AM LISTENING TO BOB MARLEY.
NO… I’m not high as fuck…
Your peace and quiet is a long way from home. Underneath a billboard of epitaphs, urinals, and disposal bins, this was made to your liking. Clean up the ones without a speck of dust and you make the whole world look dirty.
It is the peculiar and perpetual error of the human understanding to be more...– Francis Bacon (via randomsh-t) (via alekaa) (via artisnothing) Ain’t it the truth? Good things cause good things. Why is western civilization so dominantly one-sided? From Chaos, we make Gold.
If you don’t believe every note you play, nobody else will.– Victor Lemonte Wooten
He looks to me and says, “I’m a figment of my imagination. What is real here is not even scratching the surface of what exists.” I shrug and state without a cause, “Maybe your real is a fraud.”
I must be exhausted.
I posted something a while ago as if I was learning English.
She's so fancy
That she pisses champagne and shits caviar. MOSES.
Baby Steps, Brandon Miller (for 8/23)
poetry365: These sounds— they could have been footsteps or the slaps of my baby slabs against what looked like under-saturated light blue tree trunks as bars on a crib. My eyes are underdeveloped. I can hardly see. Everything is polluted water flowing without reason into bedroom tributaries. There are no smells or tastes. These senses haven’t found recognition with the world who...
Attention all instrumentalists.
Contrary to popular belief, don’t bend your wrists when you play. What this does is cause a severe damage to the tendons in the hand as well as the muscles in the wrist. If the wrist is completely straight, the muscles nearest to the elbow are actually the ones being used. According to Gary Willis, “They’ve been strong enough to play a bass since you were about three years...
Treason, Sour Haste.
Surprisingly, I’ve seen some of the best Musicians I know step away from Music. Huh. Funny how that works. I’ll explain later.

kateoplis: Knowing the distribution of dark energy tells astronomers that the Universe will continue to get bigger indefinitely. Eventually it will become a cold, dead wasteland with a temperature approaching what scientists term “absolute zero”. Professor Priyamvada Natarajan of Yale University, a leading cosmologist and co-author of this study, said that the findings finally proved “exactly...
Beautiful Words: Saudade →
I finally found the perfect word to describe something that I couldn’t quite pin down. Wikipedia: Saudade is a Portuguese and Galician word for a feeling of nostalgic longing for something or someone that one was fond of and which is lost. It often carries a fatalist tone and a repressed…
Reminder to self #40:

If you want to become real
Stop trying to be something unreal.
I just woke up from the most incredible dream. Is it not true that Inception is a real phenomenon?
PENIS. VAGINA. ANUS.
All Action and All Theory
Lately I’ve had a chip on my shoulder, a vendetta, so-to-speak. It seems like our generation is being laid into the ground by the one before us, told we don’t work hard enough or have this intense sense of ego. Yeah, maybe I do. But maybe I don’t. Maybe I’m calling bullshit on the generation before us. We’re told a lot that we’re apathetic, egotistical, and...
Yesterday is a state of mind.
Time does not exist.
You are about to experience real life.
Are you ready?
The teacher, or the spiritual friend, enters your system much as medicine is...– Chogyam Trungpa (via figglez)
It’s like if anyone looked in the mirror and saw this other person and knew they...– Refraction
Ego... If you'd kindly shut up.
I would appreciate it. I am trying to get some things done today.
Talking much about oneself can also be a means to conceal oneself.– Friedrich Nietzsche (via silversouled, idlhnds)
Songs I wouldn't mind making arrangements for.
Since they’re moving in to my mind: Terrible Storm by Tegan and Sara. Uncle Remus by Frank Zappa. The Boxer by The Chemical Brothers. Alegria from Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria. Space Oddity by David Bowie. Song to John by Stanley Clarke. Someone Saved My Life Tonight by Elton John. Peaches en Regalia by Frank Zappa. Yellowcake by Kaki King. With Twilight as My Guide by The...

solaseria: fuckyeahfunnythings: skeweredjellyfish: onthewing: infatuatedwithneon: My job is so fucking unbelievable. I’ll try to sum it up by first telling you about the folks I work with: First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on make-up. She is extremely...
Asking: "Why Not?"
The empirical method asks us to collective evidence for which a theory can later draw a conclusion. In this case, I ask, “Why Not?” I believe Socrates had it right, asking “Why?” to a multitude of questions, but to ask Socrates, “Why Not?” may have got him thinking in the same way. I believe if you can prove something, or find it’s core, you can also...
Hello followers or lack-there-of. Or many followers. Anyway, I wanted to let everyone know that I am going to revert this blog back to it’s original purpose, since all I seem to be able to do lately is post about Music, listen to Music, and practice. In an effort to make the World a little more Musical, I’ll be bringing you anything I can from what I consider the furthest reaches of...
