5x sensual silence

It takes me so much longer to put together these lists these days. I’m not in a receptive mood, but I’m not in a creative mood either. I’m oscillating between contemplative practices and social sensory stimulation. Trying to find a way just to exist in the world without coming or going too much. In the course of that here are a few things that have come up for me.

  1. Listen to Mulatu Astatke – New York Addis London (full album) via Broken Trancy Things
  2. What Do Your Sexual Fantasies Say About You? via Slutever
  3. Helmholtz Resonator via the book I’m currently reading Dramturgy of Sound in the Avant-Garde and Postdramatic Theatre
  4. Bob Dylan on Sacrifice, The Unconscious Mind, and How to Create the Perfect Work Environment via Brain Pickings
  5. Inspired by the art work of WITCHORIA revisted on The Hoodwitch

5x (come)immunity

Here are a few things that have rolled across my consciousness lately. I’m spending more time in quiet reflection than reading or writing these days. I am practicing being fully present. Listening to what is around me. Learning from what is there. It’s an inwardly reflecting period, so I don’t have as much to share here. I’m working on the poety & other small miracles still. Enjoy

  1. Color Schemes new track by my pal Eden
  2. In Defense of the Wastelands by Erica Violet Lee
  3. Arlissa on Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie
  4. Anil Dash on Tech’s Moral Reckoning via On Being
  5. Date night idea making this while listening to Miranda Krogstad recite her Ode to Pasta

5x haunted hallows

A powerful resin of energy is waiting to be released. Right in my chest. Already a morbidly dark time of year fascinated equally by death and celebration, and my mood is no lighter for it. Unripe fruit spoiled by holy ghosts. Winter’s icy grip at our throats. This hallowed ground where forgotten blood baths lay. Here are some things I’ve been considering in the witching hours.

  1. For Northern Girls via Moontime Warrior an important poem inspired by these tragic events, and breaking today a fifth death
  2. Chelsea Wolfe – Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs via Spotify
  3. New Moon in Scorpio Spells inspired by Pam Bustin who shared this post here
  4. Playing God via Radiolab
  5. Silent Era – Punching Out The Poison via Chelsea Martin of Man Meat infamy
