THE TWELVES

18 Jan

The Twelves are back with a new mixtape — including some of their new official remixes for Zeigeist and The Virgins. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve headed over to The Twelves’ MySpace to listen to their remix of “Humanitarianism.” Like at least a million. The mix also includes some of their home brews for Radiohead, Lykke Li and Fleet Foxes. Based on their previous Thirty Minutes of the Twelves mixtape, we can assume without listening that this one is nop totch. Yep, it is:

Sky Bound [Freely, She Writes]

29 Sep

The View From My Stoop: Tonight's SunsetI am sick. Moments slur.

But nothing really matters,

to me, anymore.

Nature’s subtle humility soothes

static air and releases me into

a peaceful state.

The sunset tonight illuminates

the essence of harmony.

Sublime and beautiful:

a perpetual fluxes, trailblazing forever.

Pastel tulips bloom, gentle and graciously screening

the south side of clouds

with reflected light. The living sky

yawns incandesence and serenity

shimmers like a tapestry

of diamond mist.

Mucalinda

13 Sep

The earliest memory of a dream I have perplexes me. A serpent that was greater than its body arose from the depths of a well while I was locked inside of a room alone and wrapped itself around me about to swallow me whole. Could it be: mucalinda?

Mucalinda

A tree near the Ajapālanigrodha in Uruvelā. The Buddha spent there the third week after the Enlightenment. There was a great shower of rain, and the Nāga king, Mucalinda, of the tree, sheltered the Buddha by winding his coils seven times round the Buddha’s body and holding his hood over the Buddha’s head (Vin.i.3; J.i.80; BuA.8, 241; Ud.ii.1; Mtn.iii.300, 302; DhSA.35). The Udāna Commentary (100f.; see also MA.i.385) adds that the space provided by the Nāga’s coils was as large as the floor space of the Lohapāsāda and that the Nāga king lived in a pond near the tree.

What Keeps Me Up at Night

28 Jul

Featured Image: “Her Morning Truth” by BeMused by Design 2010©

Plinky Prompt of the day asks me: what keeps me up at night? What doesn’t–where to begin…

What keep me up at night?

Curiosity. Patience while allowing the unconscious to give insight while I’m unguarded on the unresolved and unbalanced gaps in my individuation and integrity of character.

A recent quandary: Who shrugged Atlas?

Her Morning Elegance [Oren Lavie]

28 Jul

Two years ago,  a friend sat me down and played the Her Morning Elegance video by Oren Lavie, posted below. From time to time, this video calls to me; time and time again, I am freshly fascinated with the artistic uniqueness of the video: go to Her Morning Elegance online Gallery to view the video broken apart to its 2096 still frames at http://www.hmegallery.com

Moreover, every time I watch I am surprised with the familiarity of it all–because I do agree with my friend: there is something about this song and video that strangely and profoundly reminds me of myself.

Her Morning Elegance [Oren Lavie] Lyrics

Sun been down for days

A pretty flower in a vase

A slipper by the fireplace

A cello lying in its case

Soon she’s down the stairs

Her morning elegance she wears

The sound of water makes her dream

Awoken by a cloud of steam

She pours a daydream in a cup

A spoon of sugar sweetens up

And She fights for her life

As she puts on her coat

And she fights for her life on the train

She looks at the rain

As it pours

And she fights for her life

As she goes in a store

With a thought she has caught

By a thread

She pays for the bread

And She goes…

Nobody knows

Sun been down for days

A winter melody she plays

The thunder makes her contemplate

She hears a noise behind the gate

Perhaps a letter with a dove

Perhaps a stranger she could love

And She fights for her life

As she puts on her coat

And she fights for her life on the train

She looks at the rain

As it pours

And she fights for her life

As she goes in a store

With a thought she has caught

By a thread

She pays for the bread

And She goes…

Nobody knows

And She fights for her life

As she puts on her coat

And she fights for her life on the train

She looks at the rain

As it pours

And she fights for her life

Where people are pleasently strange

And counting the change

And She goes…

Nobody knows

Wait To You See Me Smile [Alicia Keys]

27 Jul

Listen to Track #05 from Alicia Keys’ 2009 album, The Element of Freedom. I give this advice as the song is repeating and purling up the tides of sleep.

Y La Bamba

26 Jul

About the up and coming band (a prediction and a self-fufilling prophecy by blogging this) Y La Bamba, as stated on their MySpace page:

Y LA BAMBA
Their spiritual and haunting sounds are composed of shadowy percussion with captivating backing vocals — quirky arrangements and dancing harmonies. Luzelena is inspired by the legends of poetic warriors and the intense memories of a childhood rich with aural & visual tapestries. Her songs conjure a lucid time travel — a guide to an ancient land of diamonds and rubies.
