One of my all time favorite films. One of my all time favorite scores.

Sorcerer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOkfBbVZEGo
















This song gets stuck in my head quite often (it seems there's always a song up in there). It's from the film Sorcerer starring the always awesome Roy Scheider and directed by one of my favorites, William Friedkin.

Workroom


















Workroom

This is dark work, what we do
it stains
what it touches.

Spine-sung, bone-knotted,
we hold our tools
wet with our longing,
blood and bile.

Watchers from the windows
have no mind for it,
cover their ears
so as not to hear.

I don't blame them.
Even as I stand on this far side
I can scarcely see.
But I see,
I see.

The Muses Are Not Amused

These
small afflictions
carry the weight

I Never Liked Camp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg80CsS9src






















I must admit, I love this reinterpretation of a classic theme (click picture).

I find it's best to always use headphones - the music is so much more warm and intimate, and the little details don't get lost. At least, that's how I listen.

Night


















The Night Is Darkening Round Me
 
The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tyrant spell has bound me,
And I cannot, cannot go.

The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow;
The storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.

Clouds beyond clouds above me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
But nothing drear can move me;
I will not, cannot go.

Down In The Cellar

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NEN_tC_rjs
















I'm a big fan of Jan Švankmajer's work. This short film (click picture to watch) is my favorite, though Alice runs a very, very close second.

If I Do Something Bad, Will You Still Love Me?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=775AbaGzBmY













We watched Firestarter again recently and were reminded what an awesome score by Tangerine Dream it has (click picture).

Also, George C. Scott plays one of the most bad ass villains EVER.

Welcome

https://soundcloud.com/robertrich/robertrich-frozen-day





















An hour of drone / ambient music by artist Robert Rich (click picture). I love pieces like this - they seem to be a world unto themselves that you could walk into and get lost in. A deep, vast landscape. Have a said that before? Quite possibly.

A good piece to relax / fall asleep to...if that's your thing.

Jay Shadow, I think you might dig.

So Many Bottles...






















Love this quote:

A poem, as manifestation of language and thus essentially dialogue, can be a message in a bottle, sent out in the - not always greatly hopeful - belief that somewhere and sometime it could wash up on land, on heartland perhaps. Poems in this sense, too, are under way; they are making toward something. 

-Paul Celan

Untitled - Latest Poem
















Untitled

These burnt words
shift, break,
ash in air.

All that is left
is what isn't there.

Dark like the new moon,
an eyeless socket.
