And we made our way, blindly, into the necessary moment, steered straight into it — a small, bygone cemetery on a hillside, its back up against a creek and some little woods. There was nothing to it, only that we sat side by side against the modest hill and watched, what? Cattle grazing in the next field? The golden light falling?


There were strangers in the group. Names we didn't know, handles and pseudonyms and what passed in the twenty first century as a nom de plume. The system fan screamed its pallid scream, a feeble imitation of the shuddering storm of nonsense it was slaved to render.

Everything hissed and popped like it had been left sitting a deep fryer by some kitchen hand who had dropped their apron and walked off into the night. They didn't go home, or to a bar, or to a bridge of such an adequate height that potential energy gathered when jumping from it might be sufficient, upon dispersal, to turn off their pilot light. They just crossed the parking lot and trudged off into the corn field in company of a sallow moon, nothing crackling but a mute prayer for the corn field to extend forever so that they could avoid whatever variation lay beyond it.

All the while, we were sitting in the boiling oil; thermal energy thrumming, heaving in violent plumes invisible above the surface, the heating element unflinching in the face of its chaos, unmoved by the clumsy, abject violence it had unwittingly become party to.

Eventually, perhaps, someone would come and find it all and rectify it. Perhaps nobody would come, but eventually up the invisible chain somwhere, some abstract element, perhaps a minute filament forged a world away, by some enumerated individuals each one ignorant of its eventual specific purpose and by extension inculpable in its inevitable failure, would give, and the power supply would stop, and the heating element would fade from its ephemeral perfect white back to a lowly mortal silver, and the violence would dim and then slow and then stop, and we would rest.

But that filament was made perfect, copied from a model meticulously engineered to run a thousand lifetimes before entropy finally popped it, first time every time. The kitchen hand was not coming back. No customers would discover and right this obscenity.

There was nothing to do but wait, and endure, and try to become one, if not in form then at least in spirit, with the writhing oil.

yeah, something of that piece came to mind as i was working on mine, though i couldn't recall anything specific.

i knew it was a risky post and, indeed, upon submitting it experienced immediate and fathomless regret which i suspect will last for the rest of my life

Thumbs up

Oh, I'm mostly just teasing. His is pretty tortured and overwrought, while you've captured a feeling. Your style is more baroque than I usually go for, but it does get across your meaning and how that moment might feel, whereas I've read his shit a dozen times and I'm still not clear on some of it (e.g., I have no idea what the "system fan" sentence is talking about; I find it weird and clumsy that he develops this metaphor of God as a depressed line cook and then, two paragraphs later, it seems like the "enumerated individuals" are like a second interpretation of God(s)?).

I will just add that while many people do a lot of traveling while in a fugue state, I'm not sure your passenger would be comfortable with you driving if she catches on.

Attended Jimmy's drum clinic this past weekend. He just said they were "about to release it" and that there's about six or so version of "Blue Skies Bring Tears" (both the Machina 2 and the FAEOMM versions are much better than the M1 version). He played the drum parts to a few of them.

So nothing new, but at least it's more than just Billy saying that it's coming soon. Again, probably complicated by the vinyl record production backlog.

I think we all agree this release has been a masterclass in marketing 101.
