Sharing the Hate, Spreading the Pain: On the Silent Dividing Line

by on Sep.18, 2008, under Articles, Sharing the Hate

There comes a time when one needs to make a decision. Some decisions are easier to make than others, such as when to eat, and where to sleep. Other decisions are more difficult such as what to study, and where to learn. Still other decisions are extremely difficult such as what to create, and where to seek inspiration.

All throughout these decisions are choices that people made through the summation of previous experiences in their apparent perceived lives. If you call this falling domino effect fate, then free will itself does not exist, (continue reading…)

Sharing the Hate, Spreading the Pain: On the End is the Beginning is the End

by on Sep.11, 2008, under Articles, Sharing the Hate

Looking down onto the bamboo mat, there is a member of the walking dead left broken, cut open, and mentally bleeding much like a cutter on the rebound. As it reaches the fringes of almost falling asleep, the body starts to twinge, and become stiff. This rigor mortis like state compounded with a cold shortening effect. It briefly moans out my name in a semi-lucid state answering that final question of whom it will summon on its deathbed.

Its arm with sinuous claw stretches out towards me, (continue reading…)

No One and a Half: Rules of Simplicity

by on Sep.08, 2008, under Articles, No One and a Half

Scribed by Jason Firestone.

If you can’t sell five copies of your CD, how do you justify getting 1000 made?

If you don’t promote your shows, booking three a week won’t make you famous any faster.

If you can’t get the drunk and desperate 35-year-old bar fly who has a permanent spot at the end of the bar to go home with you, don’t even try going for that gorgeous 21-year-old who is only there to see her boyfriend’s crappy band.

If one of those XXL energy drink canisters doesn’t wake you up, you should probably get some sleep.

Sharing the Hate, Spreading the Pain: On Quiet Sobbing

by on Sep.04, 2008, under Articles, Sharing the Hate

Grounded for a split second I look up from the row of keys out the window into the distance. The quiet sobbing of this walking dead is very soothing, and yet very close. I take special care to hear each breath, each wince, and each sigh. The sounds form a beautiful symphony of empathy in the Persian key of A# minor.

If given more emphasis the sighs and winces could become the wails of an opera singer, a black metal singer. Given more puissance, they could even shatter glass windows and frames. Given direction, they could share with the world misery and despair. In its current state, it just sits there on a bamboo mat shivering with skin barely clinging to its raw and ruby flesh. Upon closer inspection, I can see flexible cartilage where both flesh and muscle are no longer present. How much cannibalism has this one done on itself?
