Poem #2

after the movie
in the parking lot dude and boss lady smoked, i leaned against the back of his car
in the car they talked of next year.  i thought of enlistment
nirvana played twice and  I sat on the roof  as they  talked
at Dennys boss lady's eyes asked me if i had locked the car door i thought of ghosts  as she slipped on her black hoodie 
the waitress asked if i wanted anything i shook my head no
off she goes until she returns
what now? 
she asked  for her cigarette back dude removed the notyetstolen ashtray from his coat and  the gun  was still  smoking
from the bar a drunken man  spits proverbs '"all i need is to drink beer  ride bikes  and  chase broads"
i made a note of that and folded the placemat into my pocket




Poem #1

white male. 18.  shaved head. faded khakis black boots steal toed chain running from wallet to pocket
i sat  against a wall. crosslegged bored.  too uninspired to dream
black male. 17.  blue jeans low hanging.  crisp white shoes silver chain hanging from neck to waste hair short ruffled dude notices me and  approaches. 
standing at my feet he  asks with  bold wide eyes expecting  an  answer
"are you  a skinhead?"
i took off my shoe and looked at  the bottom  of my foot
"what are you doing?"
he asked half-turned to  makeabreakforit"
"this morning i pulled off a  blister i wanted to see if it  healed.  whatareyoudoing?"

Joker / Harley Quinn Painting: Gesso is Important

Image
I found a set of cheap canvases at a distant Walmart. The canvas was course and had a difficult time taking on paint. I didn't think much of it until I realized how time-consuming the painting was becoming. I picked up some Gesso for the first time this week and gave it a shot.

Whats Gesso?
Gesso is a thin paint-like substance that everybody but me knew to use as a base coat on canvases.

It's a whole new process. The paint moves more and blends better.
Somehow, I remember painting like this last over a year ago.

Here's Joker...

I Am Legend (2007) How to Regulate Unstable Realities

Image
Reality is substance and significance shaped through time, narrative and exchange. A world exists! exhaustively populated by things and people. Small things and large things. Parasites and elephants. Each ordered and regulated by a peoples need for a minimal exchange. Quid Pro Quo. A dollar for a sandwich. and a sandwich for a dollar. But what is a sandwich? A couple slice of bread hugging meat and mayo. A set of object, each their own unique significance. Bread. Meat. Cheese. Mayo. Separate concepts conjoined and wrapped into something more than just a compound word. Sandwich, in so far that it is a thing and idea, is also a condensation. The individual uniqueness of a Sandwich's parts becomes collateral to its summarization. That thing we eat.

Reality is an assemblage of parts. Shattered, expanded and folded over. Chasing entropy, yet needing a reformation of significance's totality. Or, a re-conjoining. An exchanging or blending of parts. Reassigned for an eventual re-exch…

Amelie (2001) or How Creatives Make Better Lovers

Image
On September 3rd 1973, at 6:28pm and 32 seconds, a bluebottle fly capable of 14,670 wing beats a minute landed on Rue St Vincent, Montmartre. At the same moment, on a restaurant terrace nearby, the wind magically made two glasses dance unseen on a tablecloth. Meanwhile, in a 5th-floor flat, 28 Avenue Trudaine, Paris 9, returning from his best friend's funeral, Eugène Colère erased his name from his address book. At the same moment, a sperm with one X chromosome, belonging to Raphaël Poulain, made a dash for an egg in his wife Amandine. Nine months later, Amélie Poulain was born. (Amelie 2001)Amelie is an unpredictable love story between two oddballs. Amelie the waitress, who counts the cities orgasms from the rooftop of her building by night and waitresses by night. Nino, on the other hand is a porn store clerk by night and a collector of destroyed photo booth photos. The romantic fit between the two is obvious. Both are creative empaths strained by their awareness of their own a…

Dear Zombies: Big Announcement!

Dear Zombies, 


A couple minutes ago I launched a Patreon page! Wait you mean there are even more ways to give me money? Well, it's not really about that. I've always had the goal to make enough money from blogging to offset the cost of the movies and books I purchase that help me create content for this blog. After 4 years of google adsense I have made 23$, for the amount of blood and sweat I've put into writing such a low return is abolishes my self-esteem. So what is Patreon.com? Well, its a way for creators like me to ditch the ads and crowdsource my blog. 
What I am hoping to do is use Patreon as a hub for all the content I'm creating, some of which does not find its way on to this blog, and make it easier for more zombies like you to find me. 
Also, I have no clue if people on the internet are reading or enjoying my blog. We live in a world were very few comment, and I know the way I write can be intimidating. But those are the words needed for the given situation. …

Plank Face (2016) or How to Renounce Humanity and Join the Darkside

Image
What do the people gain if their very condition of civil tranquility is one of hardship? This is peace in dungeons but is that enough to make dungeons desirable? To speak of man giving himself in return for nothing is so to speak absurd, unthinkable; such an action would be illegitimate, void, if only because no one who did it would be in his right mind. To say the same of a whole people is to conjure up a nation of lunatics; and right cannot rest on madness. - Rousseau  Why would the seemingly ordinary man choose to renounce his former self and commit to savagery? If we are to follow Rousseau, beneath the thin veneer of societies social contracts lies humanities true nature. A nature rich with violence, chaos and a war on all to acquire substance. We are only freed from this savagery by the often arbitrary but mostly utilitarian social agreements between people. Over time this grew from small communities to large cityscapes kept in check by an enforcement of societal contracts throu…

Little Cthulhu has had quite a crazy year. A strange human boxed up all her toys put her in a box and drove her across the world. It snows every day, but at least I am well fed! Check out some of Cthulhu's greatest photos from 2017.
























Trash Fire (2016) Love and Greater Evils

Image
Trash Fire centers around a couple and an impossibility fulfillment. On first look, it may appear that Owen and Isabel's relationship is flawed due to incompatibility. Competing expectations about what it means to be in a relationship. Or some conscious decision to avoid empathizing. But I argue that there is something else going on. That the pair shows an intentionality which targets the other's expectations and perceived flaws. A kind of evil badgering that maintains continuity.
Isabel, you voiced a concern about Owen's drinking. - Do you still have an issue with that? - BOTH: No. Because I told him I'd cut his dick off, and he knew that, and I meant it. She did tell me she'd cut off my dick... ...and I did know it, but I wasn't particularly concerned on account... ...of the fact that I don't use it for much except pissing. In fact, I'd love to see it go... ...because all I do is look at it every day and it reminds me of better times. Now when I brough…
