sometimes i worry that i keep falling into a rapturous seduction with strange women i do not actually know, and will probably never know, though i feel like what i do know of them is more important, and hides inside my dreams, where i am kept company by their own dreams, or fantasies, or nightmares — at this point those distinctions do not function. i worry i am being pulled out of the world with reveries of imagined scents, dream-flesh, secret chambers meant only for narcotic rituals performed with bone-trumpets, temple bells and poisoned oscillators. sometimes i think it’s good, it is a better place (the way people say “he’s gone to a better place), and sometimes i just don’t know. whiskey, vetiver, kohl, opium, deep musk, honey, gunpowder, hashish, sweat. that is how i know you.
The next instalment of the Theater of Diminished Faculties will be titled Discomancer, and will be a series of short films (basically a TV show, and I’m gonna pitch it that way, but it might not actually end up on television) based on the eternal duel between Rex Sebastian the Discomancer and his once esteemed guru now gone rogue Mr. Magnifico as well as his troubles with his own magician’s assistant Pamela Bambelam. All my irregular characters are in there (Captain Steele and Bobcat Bob, Ed and Merle, Owen and Rissa, on and on). It’s gonna be *dense*. To help raise money for this Quixotic project, I will begin to release a series of albums. They will be available for download as high-quality mp3s with texts and images. There will be a limited number of handmade artist’s editions of each album available for purchase. I’m getting ahead of myself, but as a teaser I’ve released the Dirty White Droid album Discomancer at http://www.sendspace.com/file/9s46ri — help yourself and please share. When I get a little breathing room I’ll put up a non-sendspace link with a couple extra tracks that I currently can’t find because everything is a mess. I will be contacting you soon with more information. This is going to be amazing, and I cannnot be stopped. Thank you all so much for everything.
