That is, the officers in this video are seen slamming the photographer into the concrete, putting their hand over his mouth and punching + hitting him on the head with their batons. Fuckin’ cops. “The old house is a museum dedicated to Sun Ra, filled with his music, possessions and other memorabilia … several of his old electronic keyboards leaned sideways, a jumble in the corner. In another corner was a tall wardrobe cabinet containing hundreds of original scores, many never recorded … The room was adorned with Egyptian and African art, psychedelic paintings and tributes. His walking stick was mounted on the wall … There were dried roses from the funerals of both Sun Ra and John Gilmore.” Brain coordinates that smtms appear, and (def.) influence form of present phenotypes. So glad for this eve. Sun came out and someone who is historically frozen made a creative pizza. I do not want to keep you outside this book; there are times when I unlock the fence to rescue a rabbit, or a stray dog; but we know my mind is built on lightspeed of semiolesions that infest the Peircean nexus between linguistic meaning and the fantasias of autophagy: “Peirce’s three laws were going to put an end to the hazardous attempts at memory downloading through the intermediary of a data carrier, in favor of, on the one hand, direct molecular transfer, and, on the other, what today we call life story …” meant for some other being, that might just happen upon this bug during its travels to our desert, some alien drifter from the far country of our galactic chaosmos. Now you too must enter the stream and swim … except the ocean and rivers are no more, and your mind, like mine is turning, buzzing, slipping into that silent hummmm … not to worry, those are just the nano-slugs replacing your once human brain cells with machinic ties to your transhuman future… “Wake up little darlings … the sun is bright, the moon is falling, and …” I was determined not to be a victim, not to break down, not to fall apart, not to lose my will to live … Returning home, I took a sleeping pill. I slept for several hours. I got up. I ate. I took a sleeping pill. Against I fell asleep. I got up again, took a sleeping pill, and fell asleep. This went on for 15 days … In my dreams I relived everything that had been tormenting me … I disputed. I proved my point. I grieved – all in my sleep. Then, after 15 days, I went fishing. Here, Derrida is helpful: If I know what I must do, I do not take a decision, I apply knowledge, I unfold a program. For there to be a decision, I must not know what to do … The moment of decision, the ethical moment, if you will, is independent from knowledge. It is when I don’t know the right rule that the ethical question arises. The object turned out to be a 7-foot-tall replica of a man’s head made with Styrofoam and fiberglass. The head has the appearance of a Greek or Roman-style statue. So far no one has come forward to claim [it]. RIGHT NOW: The police van containing the 12 University of Wisconsin students who occupied Chancellor David Ward's office demanding their university stop giving its money to anti-worker corporations is now surrounded by other students, who are blocking the van from leaving the premises.
