Shadows, Out of Limbo

Observe those who strive for free expression that has not existed within their lifetimes.

Historical awareness awakens in these individuals the sense that a void exists where once free thinking and bold creativity thrived.  But commercial culture has been manipulated to create a collectivist mentality for a half-century, and its failures are everywhere present and oppressive.

To alter this course of events, individuals must rise, stand together as individuals, support one another yet remain self- reliant, and embrace the potential of the future without concern for present calumny and condemnation.

Let it Bleed

Reduced to caricature, art reflects trifling experience.

There is no value in the superficially clever, embracing, as it does, condescension and mockery.

There are immense debts to be paid to humanity, works to be accomplished through life-long sacrifice, and unforgiving realities to confront.

Heavy Lifting

Think. Ideas have consequences.

Artistic expression in the service of ideology is no longer art, and nothing more than propaganda.

The Futurist

"Futurist" perspectives range from the absurd to the nihilistic to the truly Modern.

The "Year Zero" point of view is particularly odious, requiring a ridiculous conviction that erasure of all human history, combined with an utter faith in one or another asinine views of  "human nature" as essentially "good", will produce an egalitarian Utopia.

The Modern Futurist perspective is simple: Elevate objective possibility into existential reality.

Art Not Art

One need not be a Zen master to observe the absurdity of many so-called attachments.

Consider this in the context of the plethora of shallow, sensational "connections" found in every form of media.  Expression without meaning or value, nonetheless, is not cast aside unless by choice.

Observe and express clarity.

Eliminate the unnecessary and irrelevant. This is commitment, and self-reliance.
