The Latest

Two weeks ago, I walked into my job and told them I was no longer comfortable working in that envirnment. That was one of the best desicisions I ever made. That went out and danced wildly to Matthew Dears DJ set at Tv Bar. Talked with some dear friends under the Detroit sky. Whipped my body around moved to some minimal techno beats.

The urge to quit my job was not new. I never liked it to begin with; I hated every piece of that place, other than my coworkers, some of whom were decent people. but I was ill at ease….. it did not really matter, I was just a body working, with some great wine and cheese knowledge in a workplace that did not give half a fuck about me. I used the word WORKPLACE not person…..

I was inside of the belly of the beast…. it was about the genntrification of detroit, about racism, about bullys, about the other

I cried myself to sleep over the events of gaza and ferguson. It was a double blow, I watched helpless as the american tax dollars partially funded genocide. It’s a strong word.

…… and then the fact that a large portion of people around me , americans, had not heard of gaza……

the silent drone picture of the wreckage

and then ferguson, which shook me again through and through, left me crying again

I lost the last veils. I could see things clear.

the narrative was shifting

and there was a power balance, however subtle…supression

racist attitudes, which are often almost coupled with sexism and homophopia …. they are part of the power structures which try to keep us in place…..

news sources like fox distort the new and the narrative

and some people act this type of narrative out

sentences i get to write in my diss:

Perhaps when Marx writes about the “vampire-like” quality of capital, the way it “lives only by sucking living labour, and lives the more, the more labour it sucks” (342), we ought to think of capital as the affect vampire, sucking the capacity, force, and power from the depleted bodies it leaves behind.

So then to reapproach capital…. We have to remove the vampiric aspect… We have to work with love… To stop to work with capital.

…the positive transcendence of private property – i.e., the perceptible appropriation for and by man of the human essence and of human life, of objective man, of human achievements should not be conceived merely in the sense of immediate, one-sided enjoyment, merely in the sense of possessing, of having. Man appropriates his comprehensive essence in a comprehensive manner, that is to say, as a whole man. Each of his human relations to the world – seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling, thinking, observing, experiencing, wanting, acting, loving – in short, all the organs of his individual being, like those organs which are directly social in their form, are in their objective orientation, or in their orientation to the object, the appropriation of the object, the appropriation of human reality. Their orientation to the object is the manifestation of the human reality.

Black milk of daybreak we drink it at evening
we drink it at midday and morning we drink it at night
we drink and we drink
we shovel a grave in the air there you won’t lie too cramped
A man lives in the house he plays with his vipers he writes
he writes when it grows dark to Deutschland your golden hair Margareta
he writes it and steps out of doors and the stars are all sparkling, he whistles his hounds to come close
he whistles his Jews into rows has them shovel a grave in the ground
he commands us to play up for the dance.

Black milk of daybreak we drink you at night
we drink you at morning and midday we drink you at evening
we drink and we drink
A man lives in the house he plays with his vipers he writes
he writes when it grows dark to Deutschland your golden hair Margareta
Your ashen hair Shulamith we shovel a grave in the air there you won’t lie too cramped

He shouts jab the earth deeper you lot there you others sing up and play
he grabs for the rod in his belt he swings it his eyes are so blue
jab your spades deeper you lot there you others play on for the dancing

Black milk of daybreak we drink you at night
we drink you at midday and morning we drink you at evening
we drink and we drink
a man lives in the house your goldenes Haar Margareta
your aschenes Haar Shulamith he plays his vipers
He shouts play death more sweetly this Death is a master from Deutschland
he shouts scrape your strings darker you’ll rise then as smoke to the sky
you’ll have a grave then in the clouds there you won’t lie too cramped

Black milk of daybreak we drink you at night
we drink you at midday Death is a master aus Deutschland
we drink you at evening and morning we drink and we drink
this Death is ein Meister aus Deutschland his eye it is blue
he shoots you with shot made of lead shoots you level and true
a man lives in the house your goldenes Haar Margarete
he looses his hounds on us grants us a grave in the air
he plays with his vipers and daydreams der Tod ist ein Meister aus Deutschland

dein goldenes Haar Margarete
dein aschenes Haar Shulamith

Marx + Deleuze’s Spinoza, for me:

In a Spinozan framework, capitalism is an organization of society that conducts relations such that encounters are essentially never joyful encounters; instead, capitalism systematically lessens the capacity to affect and be affected.

INTO TRANSPERANCE I GO I AM A LIGHT FLUFF EDGE

[Hook]
What does it mean to be underground?
It means you gotta be free to be underground
Yo, you got your own key when you’re underground
If you’re listening to me yo you underground

[Verse One]
It’s time that I open with a thunder sound
Now look around your own town for the underground
Yo, you rhymin for the TV, or a million CD’s?
You ain’t a MC, you ain’t underground
You could be platinum or gold, hot or cold
But it’s the respect you hold that’s underground
When the critics don’t get, that for the streets you spit it
When your lyric they fear, that’s underground

[Hook]

[Verse Two]
Yo, white kids, black kids, skinny kids, fat kids
Them Asian cats be underground
Chicanos, Palestinians, Milanos, fuck the Lone Ranger
Where’s Tanto? That’s underground
Freddie Foxxx, Blackalicious, Kweli
M.O.P., GangStarr that’s underground
Mad Lion, Smif-N-Wessun, Buckshot
Armageddeon T.S. that’s underground, UHH!

[Hook]

[Verse Three]
Yo, the t’cha returns, I told y’all I went to Cali to learn
And that shit was underground
If the cops be eyein you, cause survive is what you try to do
Yo I’m wit you, you underground
If it’s justice you want, and you protest the ice they flaunt
You want skills that’s UNDERGROUND
Yo it’s not about a rugged rapper, or an actor
It’s about your subject matter, that’s underground
LOOK!

[Hook]

[Verse Four]
Chevonne Dean from Ruff Ryders, all the Outsidaz
Young Zee, that’s underground
When all your money’s spent, and you’re still hangin on
To 50 Cent (get it) you underground
When you rep the collective consciousness of hip-hop
Not hip-pop, you underground
Yo it ain’t about jewels, bitches and cars
It’s about Nas, that’s underground, yo!
