emergent runts roar

(whitby abbey by james whitesmith via)

Aklo polka.

"in the spirit of #metoo i would like to lend women around the world a hand with a more detailed description of my experience with a danish director . it feels extremely difficult to come out with something of this nature into the public , especially when immediately ridiculed by offenders . i fully sympathise with everyone who hesitates , even for years . but i feel it is the right time especially now when it could make a change . here comes a list of the encounters that i think count as sexual harassment :
1 after each take the director ran up to me and wrapped his arms around me for a long time in front of all crew or alone and stroked me sometimes for minutes against my wishes
2 when after 2 months of this i said he had to stop the touching , he exploded and broke a chair in front of everyone on set . like someone who has always been allowed to fondle his actresses. then we all got sent home .
3 during the whole filming process there were constant awkward paralysing unwanted whispered sexual offers from him with graphic descriptions , sometimes with his wife standing next to us .
4 while filming in sweden , he threatened to climb from his room´s balcony over to mine in the middle of the night with a clear sexual intention , while his wife was in the room next door . i escaped to my friends room . this was what finally woke me up to the severity of all this and made me stand my ground
5 fabricated stories in the press about me being difficult by his producer . this matches beautifully the weinstein methods and bullying . i have never eaten a shirt . not sure that is even possible .
6 i didnt comply or agree on being sexually harassed . that was then portrayed as me being difficult . if being difficult is standing up to being treated like that , i´ll own it .


let´s break this curse

why we give power to monsters

The 100,000 year war. "Perhaps the most significant invention in hominid history after the control of fire was the bone needle, that allowed for the sewing of form-fitting clothing."

cold bloom let the deep
perfect like a sleeping child
have as steel a star
not yet all my useless and
song shadowed winters are come

The zine revival.

cobwebbed words
make way for the one-eared dog

thrones but no dominion
soft furnishings
attaining consciousness

a serf aggrieved

Hex words revisited.

"A liberal education which will not enable us to face danger and death does not deserve the name." --Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Fascinating scifi/futurism thread.

Now that weathers have bred
such whisper, refill more
than thought would be on us

flag's knell, stones instead of
blossoms snowshowering down,
skyclad chaos: rattled?

drive with summer riddled
but not yet it's gone, though--
starswept void & relish--

i lug a famous corpse

Horror psychedelia.

I met Beserk..."

armed, O do me Argo

Erupt, O Grail, aha!

I need a word between schadenfreude & stark terror.

the grave gives up its secrets fairly

(pic by Anna Palmer on Fb)

"the Japanese have been obsessed with the Silk Road since the 1980s and scholars continue to work to re-create what was lost--in reproductions or in digitalization--in what in itself is an act of pilgrammage."

Our store got in the two-volume Nietzsche biography by his sister, in German blackletter from the 20s. A deeply sinister work. Oddly, this philosophaster herself was traduced in a weird forgery that, nevertheless (like so many other frauds that ought to have been buried already), has been attempted to be rehabilitated in the late 20c.

"I started out in silence and traveled until I arrived at a voice that was heard far away—first the silent voice that can only be read, and then I was asked to speak aloud and to read aloud. When I began to read aloud another voice, once I hardly recognized, emerged from my mouth."
