549> Th Brooklyn book diaries

... nada nwavo to riport, same as previus yrs xcept mo' face-painting-4-kid type of non-lit shit, self-help authors manning booths giving out free books, panels of Oprah-approved "writers" sittin' smug w/ legs crossed in front of bored folks fanning themselves... only ½ a dozen truly small literary presses left. Bud got to hang w/ ol friends, shared a table w/ Black Sun, ∫um of th usual suspects stop'd [ ... ]

548> sobre GTO when i'm rushin' on my run + i guess dat i just dont no

when last Cal was in GTO (c. 1995) las callejoneadas era a spontaneous thang where ppl (typickly borracho) wd follow these street musicians dress'd in weird renaissance getups as they serenaded unsuspecting casas. Now u gots to buy tickets, in ∫um lame organized tour. Only time u paid bfor was if u hired callejoneadas to serenade, say, yo novia. Every1 wd gather neath her ventana + surprise! [ ... ]

547> Guanajuato underground: vampire zombees, loculized cryptography + Lazarillo de Tormes

La ultima vez que estamos en Guanajuato we was inspired to write a vampire story set in GTO... parece buen lugar por vampiros (zombess tom bien) cuz yous able to travel around subtierranean w/ scarce seeing scant lite of day. Guess GTO used to have flooding problemas, so they bilt these tunnels cum storm drains for th river to go under, but then construyeron un dam + dint need th [ ... ]

546> Elements + Phyllotaxis: cunvergent whorl-wind trips graduating past ports in 3° person to 1990

How kin a 12-yr orefan git so mush dirt on these White boyz? Well see, they gave us unfetterd axess to dare journels + whatnot, dats how. Cal A. Mari also debrief'd us + gave us a style guide dat we spose to ad-hear 2, bud we figurin' shit out still so slip us ∫um slack, ok? De todos modos, it wuz sort uv a hack fesis for th math dept, mo' crunchy (as in granola) than number-crunchin'... souprized [ ... ]

545> Starfisheye, The Loser, monkey-chanting + why we stopped playin' 2nd fiddle

But yes, simalurely escapist + addictive. As was music. We was so obsessed w/ music that sum days we'd wake up + start laying tracks + forget to eat breakfast, lunch, not exercise, not shower, etc. + these was more likely to be dayz when we was sposed to be studyin'. Just like in our climbing dayz, we'd often find ourselves clingin' to the side of a cliff when we was sposed to be taking a mid-term [ ... ]

544> Autobiopsychogeographical landmarks of holographic earthquakes (California/Baja, 1989)

Yah, we was 1 of them civilians that was a "hindrance to operations"... we wasn't frantic tho, we dint personally know the trapped/dead girl, but was just trying to be of help to our friend. And when it came to being arrested, we politely declined [...] Our friend got arrested tho. The other weird thing we remember is how many ppl decided to get shit-faced drunk to cope w/ the situation, it was surreal. [ ... ]

543> Whorl, e + fractalian flicker noise (SC/Bay Area, Q2 1989)

[...] pulsing a pressure wave in the air... causes a "sound" wave that hits eardrum, hammer transmits to the anvil, then stirrup which vibrates millions of little hairs that convert this back to an electrical signal corresponding to that frequency, w/ amplitude, transmitted thru auditory nerves, across synapses firing in succession, to yield what we hear as sound... and then to make "music" of it? [ ... ]

542> Camper lot + cassette culture in the sunblind dayz of Ethereal Aether (Santa Cruz, Q1 1989)

Not only is the book a compilation of reviews (in the spirit of Lester Bangs or Camden Joy) of fictitious albums by fictitious bands, but it comes w/ a cassette of music, of the tracks reviewed (in a brilliant reversal of logic, he got indie bands he liked to contribute songs to fit the reviews). Some genius shit that will probly fall on deaf ears cuz who the fuck's got a cassette player in this day + age? [ ... ]

541> Frankincense hurricaned in the bush of ghosts (Santa Cruz + Central America, 1988)

The kangaroo spoke to me and said she had a tracking device, that there was a male roo 6 miles away and she could tell when he was coming [haha, we predicted Grindr (at least for kangaroos) back in the 80s!]. Then we were at the house of a dead man. He had a cage out back with all kinds of monkeys. We went in and the monkeys were jumping all over us and I began to climb around and found [ ... ]

540> Rebirthing a proxy urchin in the boony flatlands of Santa Cruz, 1987

[...] a no-brainer... the only solution was to actually have the procedure done, that's the only way u can write about it w/ legitimacy. I explained my fear of doctors + surgeries, how i'd rather die before being cut open + operated on. That even a blood transfusion (my brother’s blood into my body) wouldn’t work cuz i was deathly afraid of needles. So s/he said s/he wd do it, "no problema." [ ... ]

539> Zoologic in my luggage: foiled swindles + a turtle caper codex (comp book from Mexico 1986)

Once we were on, they didn't hesitate to pull the old "drop the coin on the floor and ask you to pick it up" trick, but i just ignored them. Then they squeezed between me & S (the bus was crowded) but i had S's purse so wasn't so worried. I pushed my way back to S and told her they were trying to pick-pocket us. By this point they had given up on being subtle and rifling through my back pockets, [ ... ]

538> Indulge us w/ textiloma: purging to reinhabit Palo Alto, 1986

So the 3rd time this happened i asked if anyone bothered to open their eyes underwater. I opened mine + what we had bumped into looked like a dead shark. I started swimming into the open ocean + my FBI colleagues shrugged, then followed suit. I looked back + there was a bunch of whales headed right for them, but the whales all had big comical grins on their faces. Then it was like [ ... ]

537> Unkel Fester's idol-killing family album from the Bay Area down to Panama 1984-85

As we drove along the lake, I kept asking questions like “what lake are we in” and the captain acted really impatient with me like I was ignorant and didn’t like my questions. We were in Lake Nicaragua and the snow-capped mountain in the background was Mt. Kilimanjaro. I asked how far the mountain was. The captain told me to shut up. It wasn’t cold although there were patches of snow on the [ ... ]

536> Purging ego while bridging the archival gap: 1980-83 south of the border to Pebble Beach

[...] we got movies/music etc. a year or two after they came out in the states. Disco was still popular (Axixic even had a discoteque) + the "popey" girls wore tight Jordache jeans + all the popey boys wanted to do was pick fights, especially with gringos. But I did have a friend from Philly that spent summers in Axixic + I think it was around this time he turned me on to punk music + skateboarding. [ ... ]

535> Wake up + smell th copy: fakers, journihilism + name reclamation (I am Anon I'm Us)

No, I'm Anon I'm Us. These literary fakers are just a subset of the ever-pervasive new wave of cheaters overrunning modern society, all the way to the top, to POTUS. A.K.A. not my president. Every field or line of work has become a steroid-pumped sport. The game now, across all sectors, is all about how to buck the system + not get caught. Again, all fueled by greed + notoriety. Even scientists [ ... ]

534> Great misanthropic r'n'r w/ th Joneses (gnomes + animals in theory)

... write whatever you want and then send it out on the wires. Make it up. Whatever you write will be true.» When aksed for a statement on his present whereabouts he also says «wherever you want me to be.» Then when aksed why NYC of ∀ll places (he has other reclusive hideouts to disappear to) Bucky says: «You know where you are in New York. [...] This fact is enescapable. In other places [ ... ]

533> A Raft Manifest lexicon + primer 4 th perplex'd x-panting westword in2 Huck Finnegans wake

Whee ya stated plenty how Huckleberry Finn + Finnegans Wake influenzed A Raft Manifest, but th landgauge also tips a hat to Uncle Remus, Yogi Berra (+ Yogi Bear, nod to menshun Huckleberry Hound) + dat Dogberry charactor in Much Ado About Nothing .. ∀ll 2 say A Raft Manifest = a 233-pg narriverative slipstream of conchus eggcorns + malaprop'd non-seaquitrs .. gits to th point where [ ... ]

532> Assisted living in the valley of fire

The whole time in Vegas didn't gamble a dime ... depressing enough just walking through casinos. All the people that gamble are the ones that cant afford to ... lower/middle class people living out some fantasy that they are rich. Fancy casinos all trying to outdo themselves with kitschy extravagance but at the end of the day they are all the same cheaply made shopping malls with slots machines. [ ... ]

531> What happens outside Vegas remains outside: doing the Charleston

A few members from some hiking club were loitering on top taking photos of themselves, fully equipped like they were on a major expedition. One guy in army fatiques + what looked like a gas mask was flabbergasted that i didnt have ski poles or an ice axe to self-arrest and was only wearing running shoes, he said that at a few spots on the way up he almost fell off the mountain were it not [ ... ]

530> pudding distance b-tween us + what el moondough is fast becoming

we aint cunsistent in our inconsistency + this incunsistency b-comes us, part of our shtick + since we typed by hand or hard-coded there aint no going back (hence the self-imposed cunstraint) + even if we did find a spot to change unless it was a simple letter for letter swap it would throw the whole page off.. what people in the typewriter age had to contend with. Funny thing is at first we I started to use [ ... ]

529> Saturday's child free-riding to d-feet th porpoise

.. may-b 1 finel read-thru for glaring earhorrors. Udderwise, nod much Ls to say pinche bway. Reveling in disengaged hermitude. Mind reelin' from Alex Honnold's free-solo of free-rider a few daze ago. Truely a'stoneshing feet, dont think most folk kin even fathumb, inklooting ourslef + we spent a decade a'climing. otherwordly combo of both mentol + physickle strength, stamina + skill. + just [ ... ]

528> beeconing a joy write shelter off kilter @ d-base uv blu cliff

yet an utter liebro of cabeza-scratching zen koans, tho arguably 1 of th prime-heros. And not zen but ch'an ± whatever th shyknees call that non-brand of buddhism .. notso loco bout th shyknees variety (as opposed to japaknees) tho we appreshe-8 th wack'd out humor of cha'an. See, they (prezoomably a long line of sages) present them (perhaps in retrospeck) by 1° giving a «pointer» + then [ ... ]

527> Log OS awake massaging a cerealized medium uv speciel FX hollering 4 remedial cuntroll

.. sickened by ∀ll th idiots walking round heads in their dumb phones not watching where they going, unaware of surroundings, oblivious to th dogs they walk, ignoring th loved 1s they set @ dinner with, just fucking sad state of th world rite now IMHO. A.N. Whitehead saw IT coming o'er 100+ yrs ago: «The major advances in civilization are processes that all but wreck the societies in which they occur [ ... ]

526 > Halal meat, patented medicine, prepaid street cars + pencils inside out

I dont mind kids on paper, i just woont halve payshints for dem day to day + thats got more to due w/ bad pairunting + my usual cumplaint of too many dam ppl pupalating this ere moondough. th kids cant help it tho, they innocent .. + they do say, write + draw th darndist things, far mo intresting then adult artists imho. But this age of innocence gits youngr + youngr—u got 1° graders now [ ... ]

525> Stung by a stonefish in Aitutaki + other South Seas adventures from handwritten archives (1990)

We tried many positions that led to some hilarious breakdowns but nothing comfortable—on the handlebars, crossbar, sitting on my lap while i pedaled, etc. We couldn't get started without cracking up + falling over into the bushes. Eventually we tried her sitting on the seat with me pedaling standing up, but it got to be very tiring on my quads and it didnt help she kept tickling my waist, almost peed [ ... ]

524 > bliss = renew'd passport to go nowhere xcept wear u @

523> taxiing our own dubble-entry to reconcile forword progress

.. inching closer .. pg x pg .. day x day .. cant force th river to flow fast'r then she flows unless u use a motor .. had to take a brake this past weekend to do tax shit, also took Calamari inventory + reconciled losses, etc.. nada new from last year, now in our 13° year (as always, for inny 1 curious about th ℝealities of running an independent press) .. perhaps th definition of insanity [ ... ]

522 > time-lapse deconstruction of a mounting flood of information

snorkeling gits a bad rap, dont have that macho bucketlist kind of appeal, like th difference 'tween surfing + body-surfing, we always preferred th latter (feel 1 w/ th wave mo) just like we usually prefer skin diving, good for seeing 97% of th shit in th ocean (forgit th actual #) most "life" lives in th top ~30 ft axsessible thru free diving but to go deepr + see certain critters u need to scooby dive [ ... ]

[ ... ]

520 > from cow-horn'd Wolfgang Motes-art to hero-twin monkey scribes

.. hodge-podge of histerical stuff from Aztec to colonial tempo inklooting dogumeats x-lated from Aztec pictographs int' spañole .. not crowdid con turistas, supongo que s.o.s. algo .. + Emiliano Zapata hails from these parts .... we let ourselves git lost walking round @ 1 punto thru th main mercado, quite massive + bustling .. so much product changing hands .... always awed by th enterprising [ ... ]

519> th hysteria of missing dents in th non-state of bean

We rote ∫um utter palabras then deleted them. Abra cadaver. Dont mean we dint think them. A form of journihilism. Mean 1 thing + dicebat an udder. Get my drift? Aint genetic. If so, recessive.
