What genre labels don't capture is the choice of notes a band chooses in a song, witch seams vital to a "sound" if u aks us. Far as we know (not dat we profess to no diddly about musick theory) most all the songs on 3.3 x 3.3 = S.S.

... system will sway from one stationary maximum to another, or taking a metaphor from the ocean tides, the system will sway from one high tide to another. The system, forming the primordial element, is nothing at an instant. It requires it's whole period to manifest itself. In an analogous way, a note of music is nothing at an instant, but it also requires its whole period in which to manifest itself. [ ... ]

I'm at an immersion point where I'm no longer a tourist and there's some traits that I just have to leave behind or I'd be hindered by being judgemental or hypercritical (not to mention getting my ass kicked).

672> Follow the yellow-paged journel as we fall for Zo in AZ (Q1, 1992)
We’re living in this huge lattice of energy and atomic particles. I was thinking maybe it’s even a discrete lattice, quantum mechanics forging the connections. Rather than change physics to account for discrepancies that arise, we need to alter our geometry. Maybe it’s space itself that is quantized? And since we live in these lattice points—that is real to us. We can have no concept of what’s [ ... ]

There was an announcement over the loudspeaker to fasten our safety belts, that we were hitting turbulence... evidently the reason why we was flying so low, like a 100 ft off the ground, beneath the clouds.

664> No trespassing unless you're hunting deaf + how our bedder ½ came to be, AZ, end of 1991
In this sense it would be nice to experience complete blackness—the void an unattainable goal due to the continuous background noise.

We do dig the mass napping, wish she'd write more from that space in stead of the day-to-day of trustafarian travellers contemplating their navels. A few weeks ago we listened to all of The Shining w/o watching it. Like Lynch, Kubrick is 1st + 4-most a sound artist. Beilin is a word artist, just wish she had sumping to write about.

I was thinking now, in retrospect, I could save him. I don't know where we were walking, lots of surreal scenery, over bridges looking down on bays.

More and more people latched on to us and we formed a giant flotilla. I was swimming hard but we didn’t move. Next to me was this older lesbian woman who used band-aids as a bikini top, covering her nipples like Wendy-O Williams. She was telling [ ... ]

He said no way, that we had these IVs stuck in our arms that would chemically take care of the bends and embolisms. I was freaking out. I wanted to adjust naturally.

Every once in a while I'll step out of this compound to buy food or coffee or beer and it freaks me out. Pulled into the reality of these cobblestone streets where people's mindsets are so much different than mine. End of January, Axixic. Where the fuck am I and what the fuck am I doing here? Sometimes I get these reality checks that hit hard—who do I think I am, writing a novel? I have no [ ... ]

We saw sum freaks paraiding thru town on various forms of transportation (unicycles, Birds, Penny-farthings, etc.), juggling + performing various tricks.

631> Baltimore to Paris (1995); or, The Post-Modern Epimetheus
From what seeds did it spawn. (Hector's brother, the lazy womanizer, stealer of Helen, the cause for the whole battle of Troy?  What makes this beast keep ticking? People get fed, traffic flows + furnaces burn. Statues everywhere like ghosts. Pigeons in gothic gray awnings, the brown river Seine eternally flowing, the same river as it ever was. For what is a city sans une grande rivière? [ ... ]

pondering the while on Sissyphus + the conversion of potential (mgh) to kinetic (½mv2) enurgey + back again if u think about hit. They wasn't even finished when we split, cuz they had to wait for the truck to come back for the last lode, so all our possessions was stacked in the hallways of the palazzo.

The key is taking a holistic systems approach + in order to truly due dat folks need to lose themselves. Let your jeans take over.

628> Fish outta water on cobblestoned streets flopping necks 2 humdog's pandora vox
one might question the idea of silence in a place where millions of user-ids parade around like angels of light, looking to see whom they might, so to speak, consume. the silence is nonetheless present and it is most present, paradoxically at the moment that the user-id speaks. when the user-id posts to a board, it does so while dwelling within an illusion that no one is present. language in cyberspace is a frozen landscape. i have seen many people spill their guts on-line, and i [ ... ]

622> Floating notes on a mortgage calculator where the heart layz
Outside we hear megaphonic yelling + screaming from protests as usual. Can't understand ½ of what they say which suits us fine.

We've spent our life thus far longing for elsewhere dove l'erba è più verde, now it's time to realize it don't matter where long as we are w/ our bedder-½. La casa è dove si trova il cuore. [ ... ]

621> Honing in on owning home + not to rome so much
Toured around the 1st day + didn't see much that struck our fancy. After a few minutes in the 2nd or 3rd house on the 2nd day we said this be the 1.

Since we hi-jacked The Daily Noose to be about muse[sic] journihilism, let's talk about the travel mixtape, a vital cumponent to any road-trip or gourney.

613> Wall-walkers circumnavigating il muro Aureliano to tie a knot into news in the new year
From there the wall is 1 + the same w/ the riverbank along the Tiber, on the Testaccio side. It continues up almost to the gasometro, into a no-man's land of gypsy camps, train track wasteland + the mattatoio that we've ventured into before, but garbagemen + carabinieri were blocking our way this time + the slaughterhouse complex wasn't open. It's worth noting that the wall is a popular [ ... ]
