Like I always say, the real horror in life isn’t monsters, demons or ghosts but us, humans and what we are capable of

Here’s the original video

This is legit terrifying.

Maybe put it on a canvas instead of someone’s property, and we can all be happy.

My father was a garment contractor in LA. In the late 80s, he owned the building where he had his factory. He thought it would be a cool idea to commission local graffiti artists, usually young Black and Latino men looking to stay out of trouble, to paint murals on his buildings. After all, he runs a garment design/manufacturing company, and creative signage is great advertising.
One day, he showed up to the building and the city just painted over the murals without permission or notice.
First, the city told him he couldn’t have graffiti art on HIS building because it brought down property value. After he complained, then they said: ok you can do this, but you need a permit. After he got the permit, then the city said: ok, but you can only use these artists.  Of course, these artists were all White graphic design students from USC, and of course they charged 3x more.
There is a prejudice against this type of art, and it’s racial.  Banksy vandalizes folks buildings all the time, and folks treat him like the Messiah. He ain’t doing nothing new that Black and Brown folks haven’t done for decades.

Dead Language - Paranoia

Tension. You wear the silent grimace of paranoia. The conversation is carved into your face. Tense. Grave. Suspicious. Your tired conscience is frozen with hate and fear. Talk to no one. The enemy’s always listening. Tense. Grave. Suspicious. Talk to no one. Now you’ve realized that you are alone. Trust is a fantasy. You are alone. They are out to get you.

Totally forgot I had to this lp.

What Holds Us Together

Chemicals
Are what we are made of.
Bonding each one of us in love.
No creation comes from above.
Relations built on communication
Attraction of skin to skin.
Beginning with one kiss
Ever bone in one’s body can’t be taught to miss.
Aching to hold.
Waiting to grow old.
Grown from one tiny seed.
Hoping that what comes will be like the trees
Of the great redwood forest.
