With apologies to the Presocratics amongst thee, I must ask a la Sun Ra, What Is?

Me brudder sez it's Chaos.

My retort was that there's some measure of Order out dere.

He quickly suggests an example: Word Order. I follow wit Short Order, as in da Short Order Chefs at da bodegas.

Ah, it's all too much...kind of!

More right-handed hijinks. I found my mind tonight. I was listening to Devo sing Shrivel Up.  Then it all became clear at once. I can't explain it. It's great to have a mind. I'm sure I'll lose it...

I am back. I have nothing else to do right now, except write/type. I will try to answer a question from my journal (offline).

How many days until my paper is due?


Other questions include:

What is your first name?

What is your favorite holiday?

I could type out more questions. When did you start listening to the Howling Hex? I forgot.

How many hairs on NMH's head? Many.

What is the purpose of this typing? To loosen up my mind and hand coordination on the keyboard.

What was that sound? Plumbing.

This is getting tedious. I don't want to continue in this manner because the content is pretty uninteresting. I know at least a few people read this site and I don't want to bore you/them.

But, I need this specific space. Isn't that pathetic? Couldn't I start my own blog?

Any sense of community that this site entails is minimal. That probably wasn't it's purpose anyway.

Lately, I feel like a loser on another music website. It's kind of pathetic to be a dedicated fan...of anything. I should spread my wings, so to  speak.

I am moving into writing mode. This means writing rituals will abound. Previously, I had no writing rituals and before too long they may stop. But for now I have decided on using this space to practice or warm up for the writing I have to do for class because I need a computerized space with personal value. A Word doc won't cut it. A hand-written journal won't cut it. (What is this contraction "won't?") So you may be seeing writing exercises in this space. I WON'T try to predict what they will be like or commit to any writing principles or daily order. I'll just write, as I wont, as NMH suggested a couple of years ago.

Part of the exercise is the practice of typing with my right hand. I am a lefty, by nature. Writing or typing with your wrong hand is difficult but some say it is good for the brain. You cannot see how slowly I type or how awkward my style is. It is much more evident in handwritten writing that I am not using my natural hand.

I think the brain --or, my brain-- processes the execution of an entire word at the keyboard upon the first letter-key being pressed for that word. I have to learn to slow down and type entire words, or learn to process word execution one key at a time.

How much experience does he have? Not much. I need a haircut. This keyboard is dirty. These letters are black. Black is the night. Keyboard players love Yamaha, maybe. Aquaman colors in a Superman costume. What did I intend to do with the pen? Write? Or tune the radio dial--a feat of some impressive allure.

I feel nauseous. I will hold the door for you. No, the number ends with 5774. Ends, I said! Not begins with!

Phil Jenks writes while driving, kind of. I need a bottle of hair dye--something early '80s. North Korea People's Democratic Republic toys. I need to shave. I write while I drive, kind of.

I hated the movie I watched last night--not E.T. Take my picture at this scenic overlook. Play the Howling Hex album when you're watching a muted DVD of Warhol films. Drink wine for Passover.

howling hex fan thinking on web site

Timelessness is not an option. How long can YOU look at the night sky? I get tired of little things. I am tuned into big things: tv stations, Hollywood stars. My friends are more tuned into little things: shaving, cleanliness, etc. I wonder how I got into big things. Following the pecking order of life? Is it a reversible condition? I will try to undo my metaphysical musing, my abstract perceptions, my go for broke wanderings, one star at a time.

Ani DiFranco on tv. David Lynch in the newspapers. Me doing nothing. Didn't even read McSweeneys last night.

I scraped my thumb on the shelf in the fridge. It is really sore.

Sesame seed rolled on tongue, burst in bite-size joy.

Alright, then. I'm off to the family room to watch a film w/ my mother. I am hoping for E.T. (Spielberg) but it's really anyone's guess.

McSweeney's editions are on the nightside table for to read after the cinematic experience. It's almost too much. We are so lucky.

you're going to reap just what you sow...have you ever seen obscenity? leave it alone. it is best left to lawyers. find something else to engage with.

have you ever seen grammar? the grateful dead? some things make you stand up and groove.

fingers of the ocean overcome me in a unbattle. enter this morning, soundtracked by a rod stewart single at the hands of a new york dj.

click on.

psssssssssss...shhhhhhhh, slam!

i don't want vanilla. i don't want chocolate. give me some of that good tutti frutti.

do it, just do it!

sitting with my belly

watching the telly

thinking of mindy and mork

watching my fingers

listening to singers

my two cents 

by: rxconor

Sun Mar 29, 2009 at 15:06:09 PM MDT

There is a Rapture or End Days index on the Web. My roomate made a popular joke of it in college. It doesn't take much to make a joke. I suppose delivery is of the essence. But once you've got that down, you can pretty much say anything and get a rise from people.

The Long Island Home Show comes to Nassau Coliseum this weekend. I don't know what to make of it. I took a cue from chill and decided it might be nice or somehow relevant at least, given the arrival of the aforementioned show, to think about home. We should all get our homes in order. Maybe this show could help.

I have to start living within my means AND towards my own ends. Here we go again.

frozen thoughts in a novelty ice cube tray 

by: rxconor

Thu Mar 26, 2009 at 18:45:47 PM MDT

I am a man, but I got my Bachelor's Degree at a girl's school. Yes, it's been co-ed since 1969. Yes, many men have studied there. That doesn't stop many people from assuming that it is still a girl's school.

I want to pack my sentences with careful details like chill. Pack, pack, pack. I feel too enlightened. I feel too sparse. I believe you get what you give. Is this karma? Well, kind of. I have studied karma and quite honestly the thought that my sincere belief about life could be translated into an Eastern religious concept feels ridiculous. Meanwhile my discursive rambling goes on quite clearly but also quite vapidly. I need to practice my writing.

I subscribe to the Kerouac belief that the first thought is the best thought. But what about the Buddhist idea of beginninglessness, Jack?

What's worse--memories or writing?  Memories will make you nostalgic for days past. Writing will just mess with your head/reality.  Maybe they're equally obnoxious.  What about imagination? It relieves all of the above, but you got to keep it in check.  Dad always says he is a realist. Duh. Don't stop!

once in a lifetime 

by: rxconor

Sun Mar 08, 2009 at 22:28:07 PM MDT

i was talking to my legal writing professor after class one day, about children's soccer, in a world-weary way. he was a dick. former doj attorney turned in-house counsel for scholastic. i said kids just follow the ball. he was like, yup. then we parted ways. my writing for that course was atrocious. i tried too hard. it's a fine line between the academy and the real world in law school. i did a conceptual art piece about color of law, a legal concept to do with...enforcement. (see wikipedia.)he was like, wtf? law school is hard like that. i dream of founding a progressive law school, a world where specialization comes from years of progress. not the uniform law school experience that i see around me these days. these days they are all the same, almost, not like undergraduate schools which vary in their political orientations. correct me if i am wrong.

i had wanted to write about fear and using the tv as a light, protestant irish writers and their catholic counterparts in the twentieth century, habits of tweed and peat. is this enough? is one enough? is enough enough?

that was some segue 

by: rxconor

Fri Mar 06, 2009 at 22:17:12 PM MST

expose it. that kind of summarizes bertolt brecht's philosophy of art. when i stopped living in my little routine life a minute ago, i thought of him. i wrote my senior year english project about him. remember the 90s? that's when i went to high school and college. college blew me away. i guess the idea of a single author is kind of religious or dogmatic, college was about interpretation. did i mention i was a humanities and anthropology major? interpretation, literally sharing a possession or object. i am thinking of laughing. but it hides too much dark pain. so, i keep typing. remember 2001? i came back to new york that year. i had been working as a legal assistant at an asbestos defense firm. i was warned that it would be challenging work. i couldn't take it. plus, my older brother was to be married. stupid reason to move, in hindsight. i guess we are a close family. the '90s. writing it doesn't make them come back. don't live in the past. it's desolate. "Turn on, tune in, drop out."
