!!! Oneohtrix Point Never is a god. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiwi7d0f91Y He has this style of spacey, heavily sampled, delicious electronic music. It makes me think of microfilms and vacuum tubes, but also the glassy crispness of modern digital technology.
Serious question: Is it wrongly appropriative to use obscure poetic forms from other cultures? I wanna try writing tanagas in English, but I worry that it might make me a prick to do so. Or is it alright?
Where ought decay go?
Rot escapes its crumbled home
Banished from the mind
Speak to me, old stone!
This menhir’s geology
betrays its birthplace.
monuments sans epitaph
Books on shelves, archived to live
At first I thought we had plenty rope
The slack observed dispelled worry
and so the bell sank further.
Near the floor, tension snapped
anxious cable taught
the divers’ fear
First attempt at a nonnet.
every time, I laugh
and then I feel uncomfortable
why the fuck would ms word count your footnote citations in the wordcount
when you realise you don’t have enough time to sleep 4 hours
so you’ll just get 3
fuck I actually caught a cold or the flu or something from not sleeping and maybe anxiety also got my immune system to leave the door open a crack? all this wheeze, cough and heave in my chest
damn my body, damn these papers
I know we’ve all heard Boards of Canada, but let’s hear some more.

"The development of Indian industry is comparatively re-
cent. Though the old handicrafts of the villages have declined with the advent of Western civilization, there are not enough organized industries to absorb the surplus farming population.
Despite certain sentimental agitation to the contrary, India
does need more factories. The present position of Indian agri- culture and industry is a purely anomalous one. Cottage industries will meet the situation part way and should be encouraged, but cottage industries cannot be regarded as a complete solution to this most perplexing problem.
Education in thrift and the development of cottage indus-
tries are two constructive forward steps. A third and extremely important step is the encouragement of co-operative societies, both for the purpose of lending money at reasonable rates of interest, and for the joint marketing of the surplus crop.
It is not my intention to go into the details of co-operation.
The information is easily obtainable from central bureaus by all who desire it. It is worthy of record that several missionaries have played a leading part in the co-operative movement, and that in certain mission districts every village of size has its co-operative society, organized with the aid and encouragement of the district missionary.”
Right here, a juicy piece about participating in the Imperial project. As any good missionary, you should build economies that you can dip your hands in and claim responsibility for/control. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I don’t like missionaries.
