If this read like a nightmare, those petulant outpourings of one confused - it works. this is a meandering to find REALITY.
i'm in a crowd and noone-just a little person you've never met, but my head wants the truth. WHAT/WHO/WHERE IS REAL? IS HONEST IS SINCERE
IS PEOPLE SINGING ABOUT METAL/ABOUT JEWS/ABOUT GENOCIDE/ABOUT GREY/TRENDY MINIMALISM.....ABOUT YOU?
give them a guitar and all those things that money can buy, and does it give them the right to stand upon a stage, [A PEDESTAL FOR MIDGITS?], and to be as a star. are they better than you, is that why you clap? did you give the lady your money or did you sneak in the back...WITH THE AMPLIFIER - such handy poetry is pretentious shit.
A QUESTION: is musical entertainment provided to transport we eager masses, to lose we cheery consumers into that clean, successful television magazine world of boy meets girl and happy ever after conclusions; clean and perfect people with no problems no screw-ups and no tight balls of lonliness to eat away at their stomachs - yes! you sell. we'll dream life in a paperback.
OR............waste of space etc......
is it something to do with people. bond of reality, uniting living human beings bringing we consumer types into that real light. a rude awakening to what was always there: a filthy black world. inadequacy. rejection fuck-ups. unsavoury deficiencies corruption of relationships with all we stars in our films: gays; blacks; mentally ill; handicapped; Chinese; ugly; transvestite; deformed; mutilation - TERRIFIED.
yes, i know my answer
mummy, mummy, do these pop stars know? what are they doing up there, mummy? yes, popular singers of a coincidental age..........yes, popular swingers of the swinging, groovy scence
BRING IN EXAMPLES. WORSHIP A HERO. FIND A CONVENIENCE GOD. ASK THEM LOTS OF QUESTIONS..... to examples etcetera all of that.
those bastions of intellectualism for anti-intellectuals - THE FALL [did that name originate from THAT super intellectual book or did they just FALL upon it?]
