3.12.14 untitled.

carving. playful. unnerving. posture.
blissful. bounding. boastful. instigator.
am i not the earnest bystander forgotten by time?
...and space?
(we're losing it.)
living. loving. loafing. gloss.
kissing. cussing. stressful. cousins.
your playful nature can't hide you for long.
(or will it?)
now go and forever delete this minute and a half.
pose and release. forgive without forget.
prose and regret. silently swallow it all down.
i've been better, but i've also been worse.
(oh, but haven't we all?)
smile or die.
we can live with or without the (fantastically)(desperate) game of chance.

10.23.13 'new to a few'

my flu shot made me sick.
my blood work made me bleed.
my coffee made me tired.
my good looks made me a legend.
cough cough laugh riot cough cough laugh riot
who will prop you up when you are just too weak to stand?
who will mess up that face when you are just too pretty to leave this house?
i fear for those that we love...(because they are loved by us.)
i fear for those that we loathe...(because they are loathed by us.)
doing my worst. doing the most damage.
doing it first. inflicting the most damage.
praying you'll leave. hoping you don't.
trying to breath. hoping i won't.
guitar solo

7.29.13 SHE DON'T LIE: a show review *unedited and uncut
'Adventures In Show Going Episode II: Cold Cave and Boyd Rice @ St. Vitus Brooklyn NY'

I really like cold cave, however my initial reaction to the band was that of my inner teenager, Holden Caulfield-ing my musical taste into a tightly wrapped box. Sometimes this happens, even to the best of us. But we recover and we move on. And if we are smart, we pretend that we got it all along…and if we are masochists, we confess our shortcomings in a weekly northern NJ based music magazine.

7.23.13 '(daydreaming)'

i am a sucker for when the heavens get so angry they attack the earth with a forceful downpour.
i lock myself inside. i can hear their pounding.
ah....and the lightning.
the sky cracks open. a celestial misstep, a momentary glimpse behind the forbidden curtain.
but they can't touch me.
no matter how hard they try.
nothing gets in.
i am only a witness.
not involved, far removed. (daydreaming)
wishing for their worst, hoping for the best.
watching. soaking in the serenity through chaos.
constantly moving, all while standing still.
bated breath.

Short Story/Show Review by Frank in The Aquarian  
Raspberry Bulbs
285 Kent
May 23, 2013

BROOKLYN, NY—Our story begins two months ago, when my friendly metal companion played me a new record he had just acquired, Nature Tries Again, by Raspberry Bulbs. We both geeked out over how it sounded as if The Vaselines and black metal combined forces. The record became our jam. So naturally, when we stumbled upon a flier that Raspberry Bulbs would be playing some sketchy address in their hometown of Brooklyn, plans were made and kept.

Read the rest here.
