visiting the Richard Prince Library
“Basically, my collection is about sex, drugs, Beats, hippies, punks.” Imagine a long, thoughtful pause here. “And great reads...”

link for two great out-of print albums by Jennifer Warnes including JENNIFER (Reprise 1972) which I found it in a junk store on Powell Street ca. 1980 (produced by John Cale scrawled on masking tape in felt-tip on its front cover)...contains definitive versions of songs by Free, Procol Harum, Jimmy Webb, The Brothers Gibb, Jackson Browne, John Cale (the song Empty Bottles was written for this) w/ an original by Warnes...

Weegee Speaks!

"It's like a modern Aladdin's lamp. You rub it--in this case, the camera-- you push the button and it gives you the things you want"

YouTube - Dr.Music - Sun Goes By

Sun goes by,
cannons fly up against the sky,
moon up high,
banners ride Cancer 'cross Eli,
hear a cry, scenes of life
reflected in the eye,
Orion ride, picture me
a pencil-image lie,
& when will evening, blessed evening
come into our lives?

Can't you see it, and believe it?
...we won't buy the lies...
time will mean
only as it seems to be,
driftin' between
the shape and the means--
will you watch and obey
heedless and pay?
Be aware
of the sign.
And will you be there?

Mindless eyes
chariots of death will be disguised--
high winds glide
troopers hear not
the babies' sighs
They just stare
ignorance attempting to compare,
can't they try
looking at the writing in the sky?
Don't deceive us,
just believe us
time will only know--
not bad meanings, not sad feelings
just the world we show.

Blood is red
must it all be shed
in the light of the years and the
knowledge of our fears?

Can you hide in the lie?

soak your mind,
& be aware of the sign...

& will you be there?

In sum: a Muslim who attacks military targets, including in war zones or even in their own countries that have been invaded by a foreign army, is a Terrorist. A non-Muslim who flies an airplane into a government building in pursuit of a political agenda is not, or at least is not a Real Terrorist with a capital T -- not the kind who should be tortured and thrown in a cage with no charges and assassinated with no due process. Nor are Christians who stand outside abortion clinics and murder doctors and clinic workers. Nor are acts undertaken by us or our favored allies designed to kill large numbers of civilians or which will recklessly cause such deaths as a means of terrorizing the population into desired behavioral change -- the Glorious Shock and Awe campaign and the pummeling of Gaza. Except as a means for demonizing Muslims, the word is used so inconsistently and manipulatively that it is impoverished of any discernible meaning...
