The Donor
–Judee Sill
I’ll chase ’em to the bottom
Till I’ve finally caught ’em
Dreams fall deep
Where voices come a-chimin’
Moanin’ and a-rhymin’
Warning me
Their words are ringin’ and a-whinin’
Hear ’em weep
Songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem
O waters of the moon
Your vapors swirls and swoon
Your wake is wide
And sorrow’s like an arrow
Shootin’ straight and narrow
Aimin’ true, it’s sting goes
Reachin’ to the marrow
Silence cried
Now songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in…
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem

THE DEMISE OF THE MASK (VOL 13)__WAITIN’ AT THE HARBOR___

____________———-___=

—  –   ————-______________ ->

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Thirteen of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)__(Volume Six here)__(Volume Seven here)__(Volume Eight here)__(Volume Nine here)__(Volume Ten here)__(Volume Eleven here)__(Volume Twelve here)-

Not only is this the thirteenth volume but it is also the very last in the series. So there you now have a total of seventeen hours and seventeen minutes of music! It all together makes a great soundtrack if you have to spend a day painting the blades of grass in your backyard or something of that nature. I do hope you dig it!

Also below you’ll find an updated list of things I read (or re-read) so far since January of this year. You’ll find the more recent things towards the bottom. These are works that I truly enjoyed and/or loved. I highly recommend them all!

I do want to make special mention of two books here that I believe are real healthy for your sense of reality: Tom Waits on Tom Waits: Interviews and Encounters by Paul Maher Jr. (Editor), and The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington, with its incredible, twisted beauties like The Happy Corpse Story and How To Start A Pharmaceuticals Business!

__——–___

Oh and my son and I fell in love with Marc Martin’s A River

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Nine of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)__(Volume Six here)__(Volume Seven here)__(Volume Eight here)-

I’ve got quite a treat MixTape here for you. This one features the Stone Temple Pilots‘ tune “Regeneration” from their 2001 record Shangri-La Dee Da; a song I’ve always appreciated for the prog embellishments given to their more typical style of whirl-with-a-sugared-crunch, and for the fact that Scott Weiland‘s vocals here remind me so much of my uncle’s but taken out of the context of his own Candombe-beat-rock-n-roll. You’ll also hear one of my favorite songs by the fantastic Lucinda Williams, “Mama You Sweet.” This is a song that I can marvel at with every listen, how with such precision she spirals through an aggregate of metaphors for grief–she navigates them as each feeds into the next–seemingly trapped but with the only release being to collapse out onto the total, simple truth of the titular phrase: “I love you, Mama you sweet.” Really, this is just stunning songwriting! You’ll also hear from one of my favorite songwriters, the always brilliant and honest Dory Previn; one song each from the married couple of Jane Weaver and DJ/producer Andy Votel; something from the work that Goblin did for the soundtrack of the 1977 film La via della droga (mainly exported as “The Heroine Busters” or “Dealer Connection”); something from one of Elvis Presley‘s final recording sessions, in the Jungle Room at Graceland on 7 February 1976; and The Rolling Stones with a Jimmy Reed cover taken from their joyous record of blues covers released at the end of last year, Blue & Lonesome. Oh, and along with a whole lot of other great tunes you’ll hear a three song portion of the second side of Laura Nyro‘s great LP of 1970, Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, featuring Alice Coltrane on harp and Duane Allman on guitar.

Also below you’ll find a list of things I read (or re-read) so far since January of this year. These are works that I truly enjoyed and/or loved. I highly recommend them all!

I’m currently half-way through The Complete Fiction of Bruno Schulz: The Street of Crocodiles, Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass, translated by Celina Wieniewska, and wow! Schulz’s language has repeatedly made me pause with wonder; it’s just stunning.

I had heard this writer’s name before but what compelled me to find this book down in the library’s basement is having seen The Hourglass Sanatorium (Sanatorium pod klepsydrą), a 1973 Polish film directed by Wojciech Jerzy Has, a beautiful phantasmagorical work, a cinematic poem, which was based on Bruno Schulz’s story collection. The film won the Jury Prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, and has quickly become one of my favorite films of all time.

You can read about it here at the fantastic film blog 366 Weird Movies, and you can watch the whole thing here on Vimeo.

After I finish up this book I plan on picking up a work of literature by one of my favorite painters, Leonora Carrington (her 100th birthday would have been April 6th). Perhaps I’ll read her novella The Hearing Trumpet, or The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington, which is just about to be published by the small press Dorothy.

And then I finally plan to commit to the brilliant Alan Moore‘s massive (1266 pages) novel: Jerusalem 

But as for what I have read and listed, I’d truly recommend anything you find below!

I do want to make special mention of the graphic novel/comic book biography Pablo by Julie Birmant & Clement Oubrerie, published by independent publishing house SelfMadeHero as part of their great “Art Masters Series.” Here Picasso’s formative years are narrated by his first great love and muse, the artists’ model Fernande Olivier, and the whole work is just beautiful with an intimacy biographies can often lack.

Oh, and remember this month is not only National Poetry Month, but as Mike Patton‘s Fantômas project reminds us, “April is national humor and anxiety month.”

Watch out now, take care
Beware of falling swingers
Dropping all around you
The pain that often mingles
In your fingertips
Beware of darkness
Watch out now, take care
Beware of the thoughts that linger
Winding up inside your head
The hopelessness around you
In the dead of night
Beware of sadness
It can hit you
It can hurt you
Make you sore and what is more
That is not what you are here for
Watch out now, take care
Beware of soft shoe shufflers
Dancing down the sidewalks
As each unconscious sufferer
Wanders aimlessly
Beware of Maya
Watch out now, take care
Beware of greedy leaders
They take you where you should not go
While Weeping Atlas Cedars
They just want to grow, grow and grow
Beware of darkness (beware of darkness)

THE DEMISE OF THE MASK (VOL 2)

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Two of my new series of MixTapes: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__.

Here you’ll hear the suite of songs that open what was one of the best albums of 2014, The Silver Globe by Jane Weaver; and something from real honky-tonk talent Margo Price and her 2016 debut record Midwest Farmer’s Daughter (recorded at Sun Studio in Memphis and released on Jack White‘s Third Man Recordshere’s that pair performing together on “A Prairie Home Companion” back in October). You can groove as well to some of my favorite tunes by The Byrds, John LennonThe Brian Jonestown Massacre, Danny BrownSteve Harley & Cockney Rebel, and a whole lot more. Speaking of Cockney Rebel, there’s also a long prog workout by that group’s keyboardist Duncan Mackay, “12 Tone Nostalgia,” taken from his 1974 solo debut Chimera. Kevin Barnes‘ group of Montreal provide one of my favorite lyrics with their chorus of:

These amphibian days they will not heel to you
You can’t defy the defining flaw of your generation

Oh and for those who are left wondering just what words are used to create the hypnotic mantra in Moondog‘s 1971 round, “You The Vandal“:

you, the vandal, plunder the village as you will.
the earthworm will pillage you, the vandal, when you are under

Hello All! I’ve got a special triptych-MixTape treat for you all today…featuring some bounce, a little wilt, petal melt, and a whole slew of protean tunes to accompany you at the tail-end/entrance of shifting seasons. …Perhaps best used when paired with working on a creative project of some sort or just watering house plants, or by those who suffer from insomnia under the sun.
