land of some other order

listening to: ripped on fascist ideas- Earth

The semester's over and I am hoping for a miracle, the kind that comes in the form of me passing French class. Now I unabashedly spend more time on side projects that probably 'won't amount to anything and don't do nothin' for society". Art is what you make it though.
Found some pretty good stuff of note, in the form of videos and podcasts. Unfortunately I won't be uploading them to my ipod because some moron stole mine out of my car. That was pretty sweet to wake up to, having my friend call me in the morning and be like "um, someone broke into your car." At least she was looking out for me.

The Power Of Nightmares (documentary)
This is a very good and informative documentary in three parts about how political parties and movements have changed the world by using the power of fear rather than instilling hope for a better future. In short it talks about two major factions in the world: The Neo-Cons and the Islamic Fundamentalists. It's done by the BBC so you know it's good. This is some heavy shit, some things that I think the U.S. Government would be happy to never have seen the light of day. On a side note, they make good use of Brian Eno's music.

ignorance breeds ignorance. remember that.

listening to: dirty living- Ultralord

Seems I've been on a conspiracy theory kick the last couple of weeks. I find it interesting, the ideas that some come up with. I don't automatically discount these theories, but some of them seem to be a little out there, but anything's possible I suppose. I saw Loose Change a couple years ago; interesting. Good points were raised but when you produce a documentary things can be skewed or biased without seeming like they are overtly being biased. I've been watching a few the last couple of weeks and I found some of them interesting and food for thought. I always wonder who financially backs these certain documentaries however, because once you find that out, you can see where the motives may lie. Here are a few of the films I have seen recently, you be the judge. I realize that the extreme Right-wing, tax protest movement, white-power, racialist, neo-Nazi ultra-patriot followers were one of the first to use the Internet as a vehicle for getting their message of hate out and I know that there are many of those in the same movement who also subscribe to some of these conspiracy theories. I would like to make it clear that I am not part of this movement, I just happen to have a good amount of knowledge on this subject because I have been studying it and researching it for some time now. I don't know that much about the whole New World Order (NWO) theory so I can't talk about that very much but I do not subscribe to the anti-Semitic theory of the Zion Occupation Government or ZOG, as it is commonly known as in these circles. That said, I still think these are rather interesting and, for all we know, could have some truth in them. Others will probably follow when I find them.

listening to: Ramblin' in the Shadows- Across Tundras


I went to see Boris lastnight and the the show was indeed great. There was definitely a different scene than I was used to, probably because it was in a college town. I got the feeling that most of the kids at the show were there because there was a show going on and more than likely had never heard of Boris before. That's cool as well though, but I was expecting quite a different crowd, more of a stoner/doom/sludge/drone type. No complaints though! I was hoping they would play Flood but it was probably too long of a song to play at a show, seeing as how it's about 80 minutes in length. Like expected, the atmosphere was made by the sounds and beautiful quiet melodies only to be taken to a greater level with the sudden yet somehow expected onslaught of pure sound; like a wall crashing into all senses you thought you had under control. Here are some pictures from the show.

she was awesome.

blessed wings

listening to: mother nature's son- the beatles

It's been a while since I last wrote in here and I guess for good reason, maybe not, I'm not sure. Things happen. I've found a plethora of great fucking music though and I am going to share it with all of my 4 readers. I'll get right into it and start talking about them.


  • I recently discovered this band called Boris. They are a 3 piece band that makes, to put it succinctly, a fuckload of noise. Scuse the French. Some interesting things to note about this very awesome band are that they have two sides to their coin, if you will. Glad you asked why they are named Boris though. The band got their name from a Melvins song of the same name which was on the album Bullhead. The song is something like 8 minutes or so or crushing slow heaviness. It's beautifully ugly. As I was saying about the multifaceted band Boris, it is said that when they release an album with all uppercase letters like "BORIS" then it is most likely a heavy stoner/rock-ish album but if lowercase letters are used, like "Boris" or "boris" then it is an experimental album. I like that. If I were to recommend any one album then it would most definitely have to be Flood. It's basically one song, though I've seen it broken or partitioned off into four parts, or movements, but it functions best as one song. The song/album clocks in at a not-too-shabby 70:33 (that's 70 minutes and 33 seconds, for those of you living in Montana.) Basically what this album sounds like is what it is also conveniently named. It sounds like a flood. To get the full effect of this monumental piece of work you must listen to it from beginning to end. Like a good film or book I will not spoil the ending or give anything away but I will say that, like a flood, the album starts out quietly, peacefully and eventually builds up until the levee just can't handle the amount of water anymore. And'll have to listen to it to find out the ending. Psst, listen to the album here!
  • there will be more to come but I am about to get kicked out of this cafe so I'll finish later.

ever cushioned bottle of shrimp plated festivities

listening to: speed scratchers- stifling

Went to this great show last night that had Weedeater headlining with some great local and semi-local stoner/sludge bands. It was outtasite. There was Human Smoke, InterArma, Stifling and finally Weedeater. All the bands crushed and it was ultra heavy and loud. Weedeater, being the last band to play, must have had some effect on the one and only vocal speaker there was. If you know Weedeater then you know what their vocalist ('Dixie' Dave) sounds like. Loud. So loud, in fact, that he must have just killed the speaker. From then on out Weedeater was only to be heard in instrumental for, which was a first. They still rocked though. Check out the rest of the pics from the show here!

This is how close I was to the vocal speaker.

drip fed

current song: legalize it- peter tosh

A few weeks ago my mom and her twin sister came to visit me and that was real cool, especially since neither my mom nor I had seen my aunt for something like 6 years. We had fun around town and all that and stayed up late into the night watching documentaries on serial killers, somehow i was able to pique their interest enough to have them watch some. I then asked my aunt how her son was since I had not seen or talked to him in years. We used to be like brothers and she gave me his number. Since he lives in Oregon and I'm on the east coast I don't get to see him much at all. But then we were reunited via myspace. Lame as it is, that was one way to keep in touch. He's a fucking awesome musician, so you should check out his page here!


I recently found this great archive of stuff on Jack London which include a lot of his work and even some photographs he took. Great stuff in the Jack London Online Collection.

accidentally like a martyr

listening to: dove- 8 letters to your name

I had my arm hair burned today by my friend whilst driving her to work. Can you believe that? And she thought it was funny too, she then proceeded to throw trash out the window and attempt to start a little bonfire in my car. What fun!
I've got a ton of freight flicks to upload and they will be up on the For The Love Of Freights site soon enough.

Here is a great nugget of fuzz garage rock history for you that my friend showed me. The Music Machine...

I just added a brand new podcast that I created. This is all about the slow, heavy, stoner sludge sounds. If it's over 50bpm then it's wayyyy too fast! This monster weighs in at a hefty 71 minutes. For all you stoner rock heads out there, enjoy!

Got some new art that will be for sale in a few days at a show and then some of this art is going to be free, as in it will be set out in the public. A free for all, if you will. Let's just call is a sociological experiment to see how people react to 'art' just lying around. Will they take it? I don't know.


The 5Th installment of my benching exploits is now up. Nice freight shots with some good music to back it up. This time a somewhat obscure, to most of the general public, Pink Floyd track called Lucy Leave. Dig it.

Unique designer napkins. No two are alike, guaranteed. Order yours now!


It might as well be summer. It's pretty hot here and it feels like it is summer, so in my mind it's already summer. I got 2 more videos I put together for all you freight heads out there with some good music to back up the eye-candy. Enjoy.


I've been working on some art as of late and trying to get some of it sold so that I can support my growing drug habit. Actually the last part is false. I'll post some more as it gets photographed.

listening to: dog- el perro del mar

So yeah, one of my friends had her car booted today because apparently there were unpaid parking tickets. it's real annoying that the city makes most of their money by fucking over regular people, writing them tickets for having an expired sticker or whatnot, etc. then you go and try to take care of it and the lemmings that work at the local city government won't do any more than they have to to possibly help you out. why would they? such is life.

love is suicide, but it's the best way to die

listening to: episode 9 of djsarepersons: Guest DJ is DJ Rama

Haven't updated this in a damn long time. I'll keep it short right now though because I am going to do some other stuff but I will include a real fresh site I stumbled upon a while back. It's called Fecal Face and it's really cool. I'd bookmark it if I were you. Check it out!


I went to a seminar of sorts on serial killers and it was pretty interesting. I am interested in many of the deviant-types of behaviour that our human race has to offer and serial killers, for me, are absolutely fascinating. My friends say that I am obsessed with them, but I would not go that far, that's just weird. Jack Levin was speaking about them at a nearby college campus and when I found out about it I had to go. After I got out of the talk I went for a drive and tried to locate some good bench spots for trains and such and ended up taking a really sweet drive through the country. It really made me miss summer and the carefree days that inspired my cousin and I to be creative and make short films. I got nostalgic that day and listened to the album Ghosts of the Great Highway by Sun Kil Moon that I had just put on my ipod before I left the house that day. Very good stuff, and I'll have to say that Mark Kozelek's voice has a hauntingly uncanny resemblance to that of Niel Young. Check out the track Carry Me Ohio. Here are some pictures I took whilst driving through summer nostalgia.

if you walk before you crawl, you crawl before you die

current song I can hear: leviticus - rwake

Be forewarned, there's going to be a shit ton of stuff in this post, so sit back and relax and make plans to not go anywhere for a spell...
So the show lastnight rocked hard as hell and the ringing in my ears just now seems to have subsided, that's more than 24 hours of being somewhat hard of hearing! The show that I am talking about was with Rwake, Minsk and Lord By Fire. Here are some pictures I took. For those of you that don't know anything about these bands, I recommend you get acquainted with them. In short, they are of the stoner rock/doom/sludge/deep southern gutter rock persuasion. Think Buried At Sea, Eyehategod, Bongzilla, Otesanek, Weedeater...
To see a full account of the show, which included Rwake, Minsk, Lord By Fire and Beaten Back To Pure click here!





Lord By Fire


In my opinion this is Rwake's best song, although they are all great. This is the song they ended on- and rightfully so! Watch it...


This looks like an interesting and very good book by Chris Hedges. Check this interview out. It basically confirms what is already painfully obviously wrong with America...


While we're on the subject of whack jobs, here is an interesting episode (in multiple parts) of Unsolved Mysteries about Nelson DeCloud. He was truly a man of the Lord, or was he...? File under cults please.

We'll keep it going with the Phelps cult. All I can say is "wow". Now, I don't support FOX News (I actually see it as the news equivalent of wrestling, or real news journalism's retarded brother) but this is too good to pass up.
