SubVersion Stop 256: SC's Handy New Tagging Index

This is a handy little thing thats been on the forum since it was refurbished in August-September '15. Scroll down the page to the bottom of the forum index and you will find a collection of about 25 sequentially (but not alphanumerically) ordered tags, updated every time you refresh. You can click on these to find new and old threads that you may have glanced at once but forgot to check, older stuff from 2002 initiation onwards, and sub-appropriated tagging by nature of threads having this function in their 'submit post' functionality.

SubVersion Stop 254: On the subject of Simon Reynolds...

SC thread lifesavers firefinga and Statto have been talking about the Energy Flash (released late 1990s) book refurbishment. It sounds good, in short. Meant to cover dubstep (still a bit Arnie-eurgh with me besides Actress, Burial, Zomby, Distance and Pinch) and EDM - which I'm commenting on in shorthand here since The Wire for October 2015 issue have EDM roots (electronic dance music, c'mon people, it just got anglicised = Americanised) on the cover. I'm not a massive keeper of hardcover books in my waking life, but I will be buying this. I'll report back later with a post edit.

(I will also be picking up a copy of Statto's SV reviewed The Sex Revolts on Joy Press from 2012).

SubVersion Stop 253: A Film Review (And A Bloody Good Film At That)

#muttleyfilm The Voices (Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, et al., 2015)

Immediate thoughts: incredibly affecting biopic that takes in psychopathology in relation to paranoid schizophrenia.

In short: the easy choice is thr right choice.

I'm interested analysing psychopathy, being prone to psychopathy myself. And psychopathology - paths from the psyche, which takes in mindfulness - as less a severeance-rite.

For some, that's hells road. But for me, and a crucial backbencher ideologue of the film supports: "you're never alone". Health spreads out.

In medicine this [the good] is health; in strategy, victory; in architecture - a building- different things in different arts,

As *some* of us know, me from reading Garrick Alder's 'Mind Bombs', "the majority of psychopaths are non-violent". "Some even work in offices"  - see the film. "Like their cold-blooded counterparts, they are manipulative and controlling, lack emotional depth. In most respects they are to be seen as highly likely to succeed in corporate culture, where one person is just a cog in a bigger mechanism".

- But the reason ultimately that Ryan's character in the film doesn't succeed is because of complex aftercare from institutionalisation.

The rhizome (root) of all suffering can arise from childhood trauma; judge in the film for yourself.  When we take indoctrination, in any field - say schizoaffective (me, and partially psychopathic) with voices I hear (partial guides, but not always) - truth is corrupt.

Thusly this film, beyond just a cheap horror flick archetype with a tacked on message, is multidimesionally revelatory because of surrealism.

Psychopathology is the ultimate subversion. It leads all places, takes no prisoners. Yet it wields the ultimate dogma: for people to become prisoners of their own minds.

Re: and conclusion: the easy choice in paranoid schizophrenia is driven by mindfulness, but this is only the connective. Thusly psychopathy.

[Editor's note: I stumbled across this film in an EE and Wuaki.TV company partnership offer for £1 a film a week for EE customers. I watched it on my phone at a less WiFi traffic time (230pm) and got a non-buffering excellent film for the price of 700mb data (1h43m length).

SubVersion Stop 252: Muttley - Black Stars [2008]

Muttley - Black Stars - July2008 Poem

However adept one is at painting black over white
The moon will tell you otherwise within time
And these stars have many layers on their sights
And this sky is a tapestry of picture-perfect
Whenever you're down sing a song for hope
Even if worrying seems like all you can do
Ruminating over past actions won't help
Even if it feels like all you can do
These bright lights are your decision
Words aren't always meant to be red
Sometimes we're all wandering towards what was unsaid
But whether there's fruit is anyone's guess.
Black stars are in your head and heart.

~ This is a sleight edit to what I wrote in a mental health outpatients department in 2008 when induced with symptoms of bipolar disorder and psychotic depression. It has stayed in the back of my mind all this time. It is one of the favourite poems I've written. I will adapt it into an intuitive song-based improvisation at some point, as well as a mixtape.

SubVersion Stop 251: Poem - Love's Blazing Trail 04.15

It was without seconds, yet with them
An eye of a needle broken in lightspeed
The brunt of a rhythm like a tension surge
Surging surreptitiously about the room.

These particles of air are like nebulae
Falling over each other in contortionism
Walking with two feet
In the same place
In the same step

Patterns that radiate a cove of light.

It's loves blazing trail, a failed wound
Trips over it's two feet into the core
A heart beating in two rooms, two bodies
Yet as one, with all movement embodied.

Mick Buckingham

subversion stop 249=250 - subversion recommends muttley: uncertain things (muttley's 27th bday mix)

subversion stop 249=250 - subversion recommends muttley: uncertain things (muttley's 27th bday mix)
feat. altus, asc, vangelis, foci's left (fl), little red, slow club, seconds before awakening, sky residents
(enjoy & eschaton), fanu, simon bean, 36, eveson, grouper; 1h 15 minutes length.


poetry by muttley
doctrine of unexpected endings and quelled finalism.
kicking a habit like the smoke was blown out of the room by a vaccum.
diarising over a point-free exponent of the mind.
missing the details where there should be cognition inside.
changing the format as if it were pepperspray across a restaurant table.
finding sinuous connections until we're rarely unable.
controlling uncertain things may be a doctrine of unexpected endings i find.
but it's another thing being just controlled by the tide...
