“Shape of Water” by Saint and Kings

Lately it's been heavy
all my friends have been in trouble by the pound
And they're spread out
and there is only so much of me to go around

Asking how things are going to go is like asking, "What's the shape of water?"
The condition is not the process is not the outcome is not the aftermath

Lately it's been harder
to stay present and not drift too far out of reach
What keeps me focused
is knowing the moment has so much to teach

Asking how things are going to go is like asking, "What's the shape of water?"
The condition is not the process is not the outcome is not the aftermath

The shape of water depends on the shape of the container you carry it in
The shape of water depends on the shape of the container you carry it in
The shape of water depends on the shape of the container you carry it in
The shape of water depends on the shape of the container you carry it in

I Overshot You (demo)

I Overshot You
George Kelly
I believe in energy and mass and light and gravity
I believe in engines you can calibrate with instruments
I believe that we should have found a way to unite
A way to harness large forces to our tiny desires

I overshot you
I overshot you
I'm out of your orbit
I'm not better for it
I overshot you

I believe in politics (just enough so I don't get sick)
I believe in the better world despite what I been told
I believe everything possible will come to be in time
A day will return when I am yours and you are mine

I overshot you
I overshot you
I'm out of your orbit
I'm not better for it
I overshot you

This home I inhabit is just an unlikely hovel
Instead of my long-hoped-for science fiction novel

I believe in afterlife (others' memories no pearly gates)
I believe nighttime prayer cuts my long-distance rates
I believe that we should have found a way to unite
A day will return when I am yours and you are mine

I overshot you
I overshot you
I'm out of your orbit
I'm not better for it
I overshot you

Next come DJing, breakdancing, beatboxing, and emceeing

The
adviser said that he had heard from a source in Iran that the
Revolutionary Guards have been telling religious leaders that they can
stand up to an American attack. "The Guards are claiming that they can
infiltrate American security," the adviser said. "They are bragging
that they have spray-painted an American warship—to signal the
Americans that they can get close to them." (I was told by the former
senior intelligence official that there was an unexplained incident,
this spring, in which an American warship was spray-painted with a
bull's-eye while docked in Qatar, which may have been the source of the
boasts.) […]

"Shifting Targets," Seymour Hersh, The New Yorker, Oct. 8, 2007

Fires burn, heart beats strong, sing out loud the chain gang song.

Grace Jones – Slave to the Rhythm

Rhythm is both the song's manacle and its demonic charge.


It is the original breath. It is the whisper of unremitted demand.


I. Penman, "The Annihilation of Rhythm."

"Everything in life is about personal relationships – including the way
one feels about music. I want to create as many
opportunities for people to have that 'aha' moment – give people the
chance to really connect with the composers." […]

[…] "Musicians, like actors and writers, can be maddeningly inarticulate
about what they do – because they do it, not talk about it. Marin is that rare exception. She has such a lucid, human
understanding of music that she can explain something the way that
others might tell you about certain items on the wall of their living
room." […]
