against better judgment
for the first time
i can remember,
i rode the underground
with noise cancellation
i had a far off destination,
under 2 rivers across 3 boroughs,
the luxury of time –
motion as an excuse for standing still.
lol i missed an announcement,
and the F was now an E.…
I always say “wordless” instead of ambient when I describe my instrumental interstellar flights (even stuff w/ abstracted dialogue). But now, after all these years, I wonder, is ambient music actually wordless?
That is to say, is a melody a form of lyric?

My biggest performance fear is to be cringe.…
“So Tom Cruise enjoys the intimate company of a grapefruit cocktail?” Luna piped up, inquisitive, as we lingered over some new sidewalk scrawl on 4th Avenue.
We had just walked through an adjacent park that contains our neighborhood’s biggest playground, a full soccer pitch, 8 handball walls, a skate park, a dog run, six basketball courts, and two small community gardens.…

The most important thing you can do with your art is to deflect, not reflect, reality.
Is there a switch we can flip, that doesn’t involve a mushroom cloud, that would make everything go back to normal?
And by that I mean, a switch that would just shut everybody the fuck up and create a world of empathic listening?…
This Terminal command to disable MacOS’s default “low-priority throttle” has been indispensible while backing up with Time Machine of late:
sudo sysctl debug.lowpri_throttle_enabled=0
Leaving it on (“=1”) shunts the backup to the last in line for the CPU no matter what. My backup process, however, is a VIP club goer.
