I spent 5 hours writing an essay about why I don’t do political art, which got me all feisty and angry at Rosa Clemente (she knows why) then went to work for 8 hours, which was a shit show because a girl didn’t come in and the girl that did to replace her ate THE ENTIRE FREE PIZZA that the dudes across the street sent over then left after an hour without helping at all to close.
So now in eating frozen naan and really made about a pizza, which I’m pretty sure is misplaced emotion but goddammit, I wanted that shit.
The Fugs- CIA Man
Mark Rothko, Untitled, 1969
Rothko’s last work before committing suicide.
Rothko’s last work before his death.
A lot of his friends and fellow artist don’t believe it was suicide, but Courtney Love wasn’t born yet, so I’m not quite sure who they blame.
The African-American religious folk songs known as spirituals grew out of the slavery experience and the introduction of Christianity into slaves’ lives. Though rooted in African musical tradition, they reflected life in a strange and terribly oppressive new world. Often improvisations upon older hymns, they became entirely new songs — songs like “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” “Joshua Fit De Battle of Jericho” and “Steal Away.” In some ways, spirituals foreshadow the birth of American jazz.

Jordan- I woke up to this song this morning. I played it four times today.
You and me are going to have a listening party when I get back home for my birthday.
