Happy Anniversary

Listening to the cicadas. My association with them at some point became them as my lone consistent company—out there in the shrub fields and dilapidated real estate I call wastelands in fiction.

—the rawest deal I can have in this post-zoomer age of pursued validation. Thank Lu at least I’m a millennial.

That said, there’ll in all likeliness never be a time when the world calms down enough for me to not feelContinue reading “The self-anointed worth I inhabit”


Album aims to be its own experience from movie—OPEN DOOM CRESCENDO, which might sound obnoxious cause anyone could paste source files into album form then pretense it as “its own thang.” But whatever yeah fuck you unless you dig it—tracks are re-ordered in places compared to non-diegetic sequencing, some aren’t even in the movie, itsContinue reading “OPEN DOOM CRESCENDO [double LP]”
