At every occasion i’ll be ready for the funeral.
At every occasion, once more it’s called the funeral.
At every occasion, i’m ready for the funeral.
At every occasion, one brilliant day funeral.

i’m coming up only to show you down for…
i’m coming up only to show you wrong.
To the outside, the dead leaves, they are alone.
‘Fore they died, had trees to hang their hope.

YouTube Video of the Day: Johnny Cash – Hurt 19 December, 2006

i hurt myself today to see if i still feel.
i focus on the pain —
the only thing that’s real.

What have i become?
My sweetest friend…
Everyone i know goes away in the end.

If i could start again a million miles away,
i would keep myself —
i would find a way.

YouTube Video of the Day: On the Road with Neal Cassady 30 November, 2006

You’re either on the bus, or off the bus.

Neal Cassady (1926-1968)

I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

~ from On the Road by Jack Kerouac

…let’s get lost,

let them send out alarms…

…and though they’ll think us rather rude,

let’s tell the world we’re in that crazy mood…

Somewhere in that ancient mystic trinity
you’ll get three –
it’s the magic number…

Every triangle has three corners.
Every triangle has three sides.
No more, no less – you won’t have to guess…

The internet is not something that you just dump something on –

it’s not a big truck.

It’s a series of tubes…

Tangled up tubes.

¡Viva Border Volleyball! 19 October, 2006

viva beach volleyball 2 “Why not use this no-man’s land as a real beach
and see if we could strike up a friendly pickup game?
There’s no law against that.”

Or is there?

viva beach volleyball 1

California’s most desolate and unknown beach is desolate and unknown for a reason. It has no name, no facilities, no parking lot.

“CONTAMINATED WATER; DEEP HOLES; RIPTIDES; NO LIFEGUARD; NO SWIMMING!” the signs announce.

This is a geopolitically divided beach, purposefully hidden. A fence of metal pylons draws a 20-foot-tall line in the sand all the way into the sea.

It is the perfect beach, in other words, for the world’s first game of international border volleyball.

They made a statue of us
and put it on a mountain top.

They’ll name a city after us
and later say it’s all our fault.

What i am to you is not what you mean to me.
You give me miles and miles of mountains —
and i’ll ask for the sea.

What i give to you is just what i’m going through.
This is nothing new — just another phase
of finding what i really need…

It is sometimes possible for a music video with its images
to tell a completely different story than the one
that the song tells with its words.

Yet the two stories and artistic visions resonate together
and complement each other, casting each in a new light.

This is one of those music videos.

Enjoy!

You could have a steam train
if you’d just lay down your tracks…

You could have an aeroplane flying
if you bring your blue sky back.

All you do is call me — i’ll be anything you need…
