All About Love: New Visions
____________________

The first act of violence that patriarchy demands of males is not violence toward women. Instead patriarchy demands of all males that they engage in acts of psychic self-mutilation, that they kill off the emotional parts of themselves. 

If an individual is not successful in emotionally crippling himself, he can count on patriarchal men to enact rituals of power that will assault his self-esteem.

Nothing is so easy as to deceive one’s self when one does not lack wit and is familiar with all the niceties of language. Language is a prostitute queen who descends and rises to all roles. Disguises herself, arrays herself in fine apparel, hides her head and effaces herself; an advocate who has an answer for everything, who has always foreseen everything, and who assumes a thousand forms in order to be right. The most honorable of men is he who thinks best and acts best, but the most powerful is he who is best able to talk and write.

Maxwelton's hills are bonnie
Where early falls the dew
And 'twas there that Annie Laurie
Gived me her promise true.
Gived me her promise true
Which ne'er forgot shall be
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and die.

Her brow is like the snow drift,
Her throat is like the swan,
Her face, it is the fairest
That e'er the sun shone on.
That e'er the sun shone on
And dark blue are her eyes
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and die.

Like dew on the daisy lyin'
Is the fall of her fairy feet
And like winds in summer sighing
Her voice is low and sweet.
Her voice is low and sweet
And she's all the world to me
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and die.

____________________

From Wikipedia:

Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa (1566-1613) was Prince of Venosa and Count of Conza. As a composer he is known for writing madrigals and pieces of sacred music that use a chromatic language not heard again until the late 19th century. He is also known for murdering his first wife and her aristocratic lover upon finding them in flagrante delicto

The day after the killings, a delegation of Neapolitan officials inspected the room in Gesualdo's apartment where the killings had taken place, and interrogated witnesses. The delegation's report did not lack in gruesome details, including the mutilation of the corpses and, according to the witnesses, Gesualdo going into the bedroom a second time "because he wasn't certain yet they were dead."

The Gran Corte della Vicaria found Gesualdo had not committed a crime.

The responses to this and to his music have often gone hand in hand.

"What would I do without this world"
____________________

what would I do without this world faceless incurious
where to be lasts but an instant where every instant
spills in the void the ignorance of having been
without this wave where in the end
body and shadow together are engulfed
what would I do without this silence where the murmurs die
the pantings the frenzies towards succour towards love
without this sky that soars
above its ballast dust

what would I do what I did yesterday and the day before
peering out of my deadlight looking for another
wandering like me eddying far from all the living
in a convulsive space
among the voices voiceless
that throng my hiddenness

____________________

As for the Republicans - how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes and revel in mendacious assumptions - such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical 'American heritage' - utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? 

Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead.


Republicans in America really are this fucking stupid. Religion poisons the mind and exterminates all possible reasoning abilities.

Note to Republicans:

JFK was born in 1917, which is to say 10-20 years older than the Band of Brothers. He would currently be 104 years old if he had not BEEN ASSASSINATED ... 58 years ago.

If you meant it was JFK, Jr masquerading as the twice-impeached, one-term former guy, he was KILLED in a plane crash almost 23 years ago. 

And no, none of the Kennedys share a swingin love nest condo with Elvis in Missouri, Montana, or Mara Lago. 

JFK dead √
JFK, Jr dead √
Elvis dead √
Richard Nixon dead √
Jesus dead √

Moreover, you brain dead excuses for living organisms, even their crumbling bones couldn't bear the shame of wearing a stinking, sweat-soaked, coke-infused, elderly fat suit with a full diaper dripping down their legs before they even huffed and puffed struggling to reach the podium.

Funny how y'all never have an answer for why the former guy would be hiding in his bunker - too afraid to go out in public - and paying a corpse he raised from the dead to impersonate him.

 Отава Ё - Celebtating the birthday of the letter Ё
 Live in The Place, St. Petersburg - November 30, 2019

«Отава Ё» — коллектив единомышленников, играющих в стиле фолк-фьюжн и народной песни, который появился абсолютно спонтанно в 2003 году. На тот момент никто из участников не предполагал, что этот эксперимент выльется в самостоятельную группу. Они прошли путь от уличных концертов и даже стали «городской достопримечательностью» Петербурга до экспериментов с русской традиционной песней и сольных концертов по всему миру. В гостях у Евгения Маргулиса музыканты поделились воспоминаниями и исполнили песни, под которые всегда хочется пуститься в пляс.

Otava Yo is a group of like-minded people playing in the style of folk fusion and folk song, which appeared absolutely spontaneously in 2003. At that time, none of the participants imagined that this experiment would result in an independent group. They went from street concerts and even became a "city landmark" of St. Petersburg to experiments with Russian traditional songs and solo concerts around the world. Visiting Yevgeny Margulis, the musicians shared their memories and sang songs to which you always want to start dancing.

The emptiness of a restaurant that was just full. The children who have disappeared, the silenced voices. The sudden potency of the hour. The two waitresses who now assert their authority; no one orders anything more and thus they have taken over the place. Every emptying-out of this kind is both touching and sad at the same time, as if one were in a place that death has not reached, and as if it had already taken everyone else.
