Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Lemax Esmeralda The Great

We’re getting closer to Halloween! And thus, another Lemax Spooky Town piece, Esmeralda the Great: Cool little piece in which the body rises up out of the coffin. This goes well with any witch theme or graveyards as well, and as an occultist, I have a soft spot for...

Poem: Windswept

another membrane jump no clue where I’m going but better than where I’ve been —can’t be worse, anyway— I paid the time toll to long lost scattered fans work given away free to a good home from my head to your ears I’d forgotten I wrote like that and...

New Zamos, rain, and dye jobs

Fall cometh, sax vs. bass clarinet, biceps and a new iMac

Well, it’s now September. Every September 1, I have a ritual of listening to David Sylvian’s “September.” It was neat to see in the comments on that video that I’m not the only one who does that every September 1, and furthermore, I’m not the only one who also...
