The Holy Trough



We turn on the holographic projector that we nicked from Admiral Ackbar in the confusion of the Endor post-victory Orgy (so many furries!) to display the Strange Planet whose charting is our cultural rover’s ultimate purpose. We gloss over catalogues of artefacts and genealogies of sound. We identify a disturbance in the force, a void…

Best of 2011, part IV: Is it 2012 yet?

The list is the origin of culture. It’s part of the history of art and literature. What does culture want? To make infinity comprehensible. It also wants to create order — not always, but often. And how, as a human being, does one face infinity? How does one attempt to grasp the incomprehensible? Through lists,…

Cabaal, Moon Gangs & Peepholes

Been wanting to use this image by TagliaMani for a while — thanks to the ever wonderful 50 Watts. Quickly (in 20JFG time*) following on from last week’s post about Peepholes‘ laboratory-fresh detour, Tunnels, comes the Moon Gangs remix. Combining a decaying Techno drum sequence — seemingly heard from beneath midnight-black ocean waves — with…

A Faust for the Senses

Ill Defined Seasons

Like a colossal bird emerging from Darwin’s Egg, spring spread its golden wings across our fair seaside city yesterday, an inverted Phoenix, bringing everything around it back to life.  Gentle breezes flicking through the narrow streets, blowing away the cloak of grey that accumulates in winter’s dormancy.  Rays of light, in training, waiting to ambush,…

The Virgin Homicides


Agape, E-rock & Peepholes

Agape’s Autocathe has been bidding its time, scratching with 8inch curved claws the walls of the corridor where the greasy detritus of last year piles up, growing, breathing through its shiny nostrils so that oxygen can be transformed into energy infecting blood  pumped from a vicious heart and through a fractal spiderweb of capillaries into…
