HOME! can u see me ? i can see you !



the worlds on tilt ! 
and you/i are just one of the trees !
hark! a shark in the wooder ! a fern in the forest ... a hand on the tree's bark ... no need to knock ... just twist the knob ... and walk right in ... the trees are alive and inviting us to share some insight ... one with the moisture ... each tree breaths as if alive ... screaming in silence to express the spectrum of emotions  experienced within the realm of being thats behind the squishy red bark ...

it starts with a pilgrimage to the crime scene found at our finger tips, bloodied with the nectar from the fruits of the philosopher's stone ... they brought what few belongings they treasured ... the mass accumulated ... climbing ... one on top of the other ... the slowly amassing pile of humans began to grow into a heaping pile of loose wires, busted gaskets, tackle boxes, lures, plastic, sloppy decomposing fittings, grommets, switches and buffering internet signals ... those outside of the compulsion could not fathom why the gathering took action at the drop of a hat ... nor why the amassing chose to ignore the bodies at the bottom who dint seem to mind being crushed to paralyses or death by the ever generating pilgrimage of people ...


the powers at large became nervous ... 
whats at the top of this ladder ? send helicopters to investigate ... send drones ... send planes, jets or ufos... even the prototype house-fly cameras ... send those, send those !
but nothing came back with any sensible proof or data that explained the herd's behavior ...
when interviewed the responses from the entranced humans were nothing short of incomprehensible ... garbled fragments spewing very few words, would paint pictures of spilt garlic carp strawbub rhubarb mashed potato oatmeal ... flaming venetian blinds ... and retired intestinally visceral decomposable machine gears ...


suddenly a balloon from the sky floated downwards
heavy with the looming responsibilities of huamn-kind
... nothing seemed impossible that day ... 
tenders serving drinks found them flowing backwards ...
cripples enjoyed ice.cream without a jack-in-the-box taunting them ...
suddenly we all realized that the poison tasted just as good as the food grown in the dirt 
... or ...
 was it that we realized that the food tasted just as good as the poison ... 
either way you u know which the people chose right ... right?
we chose the food right? over the poison ... we chose the nourishing foods that came in all shapes and sizes of delicious sustainable non-cancer giving bubble balloons right? right?!? right?


well ... no not exactly ... 
its not what the pipelines are transporting ... and how profitable the non-re-new-able resource is ... its what the pipe lines and highways are gouging into the earth surface ... giant activate-able transmutation circles ... as gravity increased ... our brain cavities reached the maximum pressure tolerated and right before we all popped sigh-malformed-tame-i.e.-us-lean back and choke on the fact that we've already done this before ... 
im just keeping my fingers crossed that i too can be buried in the ground without a box left to naturally decompose and become one with the red woods ... i love this place ...  


and i love meeting good people in the midst of this magical place !





hahahah YAY! #HAPPYDAiLYBiRTHDAY i hope ur enjoying the art thats all around you ! not just in that white walled gallery insane asylum !
 ...
speaking of ... heres some art:

dreamin in Eugene !

oh hay yay ! HAPPY DAY ! lol ! HAPPY BiRTHDAY of COURSE ! ... well ... stuck in a well ... for the internets #HAPPYDAiLYBiRTHDAY ! its your DREAM! #GETLUiCiD and ask yourself ... what would YOU do ?

... well i asked myself ... and on any given birthday i might ... do this !

peep this music video i just dropped ... peep it quick before it hits the ground and shatters !



but that was then ... and this is now ... or a more recent then ... 

the Eugene Dream !:

let start it with the first experienced and then dance chronologically ... right ... hahha SiKE ! ima plop them here in any old way i see fit ... its more bout the story ya kno ... shall we?


^^^
first things first ... (the time machine that has taken me where only dreams go to die) !
ANNA BANANA ! 
finally we meet again ...


^^^
however ... she had a leaky blood line ...



^^^
so i yanked that sucker right out ...


^^^
but now what do i do?
eehh....beats me ...


^^^
now its time to find the sublime !
and feel the shivers up and down my spine !
its river time !
thats right ... there was a river that was only four minutes away from where i was staying !
YAY! talk about the best birthday ever !



^^^
time to explore !
i found a local gentleman's secret spot ... as i was just chillen in meditation and he found me ... seemed like a nice gent ... with some problems ... i always end up being the ears for people ...
complete strangers usually feel compelled to tell me their darkest troubles or current problems or just plan ol joyous life story ... idk ... i guess thats just built into my aura ... a wizard listener ... learning from other peoples experiences so i dont have to experience certain ones ...


^^^
spread out my roots and grow !


^^^
so ... lol ... u see this lil meat man right here ^
as i left my perch and began to continue my exploration this gentleman and i sync up in stride for a moment ... he then shouts a "yo!" in my general direction ... "YYYYAS?" i say ... 
"are you collecting cans?" he asks ...
i smiled real big gave a chuckle and politely told him "no"
to which he responded that there was quite the "cache" over "here"
hahaha i laughed with him ... although i think he was laughing at me ... but i couldnt help but think that ... well if i was collecting cans ... (and knowing myself ... i could have very well been collecting cans lol ... whether for money or for a recycled resource project) ... than i would have been very grateful ... so wether he was attempting to just suggest that i looked homeless or he was actually looking out ... THANK YOU STRANGE MAN !


lol pennies in a well ... back to the grind ... 


^^^
that birthday tattoo grind !



^^^
fresh ink for my man Kyle ! who was nice enough to store my baby Anna Banana !


^^^
peep them details ... and if u want to see more of my work ... click this ... Prison iNK fo life !


next on the list of Eugene experiences ...




OPEN MiC NiGHTS and Musical Thangs!



i rocked two open mics both of which were received well by the majority of the audience except for ONE person at each place ... at the first open mic a gentleman claimed that i was shoving a flyer down his throat and that i was ignorant to the fact that toner contains plastic ... when i was only tryin to start a conversation and continue it later on the interwebs ... he was mostly on a mission to be bully and make me feel bad and hypocritical ... so let it be known ... even when your doing what you can to help out on this silly little temporary planet there will always be HATERS claiming that they're doing it better than you and they WiLL try to convince you that you aint shit ... for what reason? idk probably personal insecurites ... but if this gentleman taught me ONE things its how to use my legs in the future ... i NO LONGER HAVE TiME FOR MEAN PEOPLE ! ... oh well pennies in a well ... 

at the second place the person opposed to my shenanigans happened to be the owner or atleast the authority of the establishment ... he shut down my act in the middle of the second song and i just barely finished that track through ... lol ... he said he liked my music but that he felt other people were getting uncomfortable and that made him uncomfortable ... i think its important for humans to consider the term "projection" as it is real ... ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK YOUR PERCEPTiON ... oh well ... so as a heads up ... if your an experimental performance artist and your doing something a bit different ... 
... be careful "the Cannery" might not be the open mic for you lol ...  


^^^
heres what he looked like lol ... 


^^^
i dint kno they sold balloons in the bathroom off bars in Eugene ... damn ... ill never be unprepared again ... 


 ^^^
yo and then ... and then ... √¶nd THEN ! 
 i got to see ATMOSPHERE live in concert for the first time ! soooooooo gooooooood!
bought a CD from deM atlaS soooooo talented ... the new wave is coming yo ! positivity is enroute !




EUGENE SATURDAY MARKET !!!!





^^^
was passing out flyers for my new album on the street and this gentleman asked me if i wanted to hear some of his poetry ... of course i said yes !

^^^
this is "lil five points" poetry at its finest ! swell dude ! 


^^^
THiS ... is interesting to think about ... a "free speech zone"
hmm ... at first i celebrated in my head ... but then i said ... y are we only aloud to use free speech at a certain place ... idk ... food for thought ... an discussion is welcome ...



^^^
either way ... look at this happening place for free speech !


^^^
and the art that rotates within !


^^^
this happens to be a the powerful visionary art of Sam Gorrin ... check out his art HERE



^^^
and speaking of art ... 
this gentle man happened to be a crystal/mineral wizard by the name of Tree Fern Gully ...




^^^
and his side kick Archie the Conure realy wanted to make sure Tree was hearing things correctly ... 
lol ... thats right family 40,000 gas masks ... 






gas mask?

THANKS TREE !


^^^

^^^

^^^
and look what else gas masks can turn into ! BOOTS ... before i even left philly i kept thinking about how i REALLY needed boots for my adventures in the sometimes sunny sunny brae / arcata ! and boom ! ... not only did the boots find me ! but they were being offered by a gentle man who runs in familiar family circles ... David Divtech : talented artist, kind human being, and wizard of noise check out Divtech's Music ! rolling with the Realicide Yougth Records on their tour ... which you can follow HERE ...
