"When you read music, there is a part of your creativity that shuts down. It's like learning to paint with coloring books. It's like coloring within the lines - you don't take off. When you think about it, what music notes or a coloring book does is stifles creativity."

- David Lynch

David Lynch's new film,
Inland Empire, opens very soon. It is a three hour dream-ramble complete with evil and rabbits in suits, and all shot on Digital Video.
"It's about a film within a film. There's nothing to see, there's no script," one top international buyer said.
Needless to say, I am very excited. His work is pure talent, pure vision.
Mulholland Drive is one of my favorite movie experiences. Call me if you need to know what happened (I looked it up on the interweb).

From the past... Sesame Street's "Subway"

Robert Anton Wilson is free!

“Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence.”

“Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.”

“Nothing of any importance can be taught. It can only be learned, and with blood and sweat.”

-- Robert Anton Wilson (1932-NEVER)

his effect on me cannot be understated.

"Robert Anton Wilson Defies Medical Experts and leaves his body @4:50 AM on binary date 01/11."
-- taken from his website,

Here is a PDF of his amazing work, Prometheus Rising (click on book)

"what the Thinker thinks, the Prover proves"

The Poet's Hovel (I)

Today I looked inside a book
So I could hide my hands
Which shook for reasons I refuse to see
For things I wish unknown to me
For indiscretions past and near
For old repressions milky-clear
The acts I saw another do
Who had no soul and spoke not true
I shrink from all those days and nights
Rent rooms in words that others write

And keep the shades drawn from the light.

Photo Series: Kings Park Psychiatric Center

This is a series of photographs I took at
The Kings Park Psychiatric Center.


Originally known as The Kings Park Lunatic Asylum. It was established in 1885 on more than 800 acres. Fifty-five patients were moved into three wooden houses. However, as more buildings were constructed, patients came to fill them.
Eventually, the staggering size of the chronic patient population coupled with ever-growing admission rates filled the dormitories beyond capacity. Manual labor and relaxation gave way to more drastic techniques for treatment, including insulin shock therapy, electric shock therapy, and prefrontal lobotomies.
The Center completely closed in 1996.

I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
