2019 First Thought At Work

Keep it green in 2019
the number is nine, no slumber
no time
yes mate the word of the year is, climate

Gonna’ be a hot one, a wet one
a bloody one, a funny one?
Mean one, lean one, 2019 one.

Two thousand and nineteen years
since Christ on a bike, with a mic
(wha?) ocean rise, fire, storms, oh shit, look.

Roman Gregorian chanting time loops here
Cletic Indian chanting space there
where is the calendar place?
locate 2019, now’s the time
the bridge persists

Bandersnatch: Netflix Meta Viral Mind Control Black Mirror

[possible spoiler alert]
Destiny, choice, reality, TV, games, movies, endings? A white middle class paranoid schizophrenic computer programer works on a game based on a novel with multiple realities, gets high on acid to discover Netflix is a time machine we all think we control, but really controls us with emotional blackmail, cliche’ climax, and special FX. It’s nearly 2019, reality is malfunctioning well.

Bandersnatch maybe a game or an Interactive film, what is a game? A rooky programmer is mad for a fat alternate fiction novel by a wacky sci-fi cult author called Davis, the maze man. Our boy working on an adventure game based on novel. He gets a dream job at computer games firm. Choices. His boss goes for fast cash on his game idea, messed it up. Alt choice. Adventure game style. Interactive choice. Now he leaves some parts open in the book, a work of early VR and before it’s time, Boss sez. There’s a Huxley / Leary quote confusion about the Doors of perception. Psych sessions with nurse, shrink, asked questions about mother. Choices. Yes / no. Fate theme of destiny. Choices. “Can you or can’t you change it” asks the psyche nurse, 1984 music soundtrack. Interactive choices. Vinyl disc soundtrack.

Sub plot about wacky sci-fi cult author, Davis, The Lives of Tucker Davis, mind-control conspiracy, murder dark lunatic. Making game. Illuminatus Sized Novel. Choices. Shout at dad /  pour tea on computer? Music is “Making plans for Nigel” Driven by his Dad back to Psyche ward where told not to bottle up, on Anniversary of mother’s death, stay on pills and up the dosage. “We’re not alone, in together, one for all and all for one” sez the shrink. Choices. Eat pills or flush the pills?

TV Game review of Bandersnatch repeats the theme, is the game good? A movie about crazy Davies speaks of complex games, multiple realities, and the start of his mental collapse, claims of being spiked with psychoactive drugs, Pax, the lion figure from bandersnatch games. Freak out at free will question. Theme. Choices. Fate dictated, why not commit murder, are we puppets, destiny wants you to do it? Choices. Not in control? The Davis Doc ends and our boy is naturally confused, shocked.

Climbs through window into alter world, and starts talking to entities. Choices. Symbols on screen. Choices. Symbol. Choices. Netflix! Has mental fit. Flash forward of all movie so far, a supercut of the beats. Choices. Kill dad or follow colin. Follow colin and smoke weed to get out weirdness, leads to LSD trip. UBIK poster on the wall, nod to the Sci Fi book by Philip K. Dick (much better story teller). Colin rants about multiple realities and cosmic time trip speak, flash backs, mirrors that let you move through time. Rants about gov. Drugs in food, subliminal pac man messages, control control everywhere, major tin foil hat conspiracy tropes. Again. No fate. Question theme of Free will / maze / trapped in a system, the Matrix of paranoia, Orwell like control and paranoia. Nightmare world is real and we live in it. Acid speech end. It’s all code. Choices. Cosmic flow chart of where you can and can’t go in alternate realities.

Jump to death from balcony. Choices, Who. Demon bandersnatch shows up briefly. Wakes up to find hidden stash of spy tapes, mind control study – DNA – acid kid test. Huxley Brave New World. Choices. Stage show, like the Truman Show. Meta Meta. Choices. Choice of phone number, input a string of numbers. Do you have control. Choices.

Review of movie / game again. Netflix choice. Theme jumps out the screen. Netflix, explains itself to protagonist in postmodern moment. Is it entertainment from 21st century controlled by somebody from the future. Me, or you? Choices. Whoever, whatever the user / viewer is? Theme. Promise of premise. Flash back to psych nurse: “Netflix, is that a planet?, is it like a computer game, from 21st Century?” Choices. Reality or delusion. Trying to describe Netflix to a shrink in 1984! She askes, “Why not in more entertaining scenario, inject some action? Choices. Fight scene. Choices. Choices. Choices. Rabbit is found under the bed, past is changed and his mum does not miss her train, and so does not die in train crash. Happy ending with his mother in light. Cut to his corpse talking to shrink, died of unknown causes.

Was it a case of Netflix Meta Viral Mind Control Black Mirror?

Happy Solstice (First Thought Best Thought)

Tether up, weather up, hold the light
Energy burst, do it all again, haters cursed
Come together by day by night
Roots tied to truth to lies surprise yer’ flies kryptonite
Differences put aside for a few, I slide askew
The bond of humans true, solid branches
In solidarity, easy moon love mansions
Smile, be nice, say hi, lend a hand
Easy, take it nicely, voice it Monday
Turn the other cheek for a mile

Just until the holiday is over come
Have respect for the Jesus, for the Santa fans
The children, for their sakes, play nice
Keep down the arguments, hold off reality
Wait and see what comes next year
Practice tolerance for other belief systems
No matter how brief, no mutter ow’ stupid
Hold on a minute, don’t jump, don’t

Go on with it, wait, just wait
Hold it now, I’m signing off, just a tick
Sorry, I was late but it’s the holiday mate
We should all understand things are different
Today, a holiday day so hold your horses, take pauses
Take it easy, relax, at home with the fam’ hey hey
With global TV news and global entertainment
With Netflix, Youtube, cable all this, man. Cave. Hellven?

Me in this silence, just nodding over saying yes yes
Happy joy joy merry merry happy…all smiles
I’ll keep my mouth shut and listen
To the pine needles dropping on the wooden floor
This solstice I give in, I surrender protest and anger
Instead join arms and sing ole’ lasagna
How lucky we are to have this life thing, Ping!
Let us use it and cherish each hour
And lift up the great ball of light and throw it
Into tomorrow

Make sweet mix with sour, stand up, don’t cower
Into darkness, ignite the core again, flaming
Toward the light like a moth go
Toward spring and summer again flow
Together, all playing nice
I wish you happy Solstice.

Don’t take crap from anybody.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium – Blood And Rockets

I like this song, and love the lyrics, and think you should give it a listen. It’s the story of Jack Parsons as told by Sean Lennon, and Les Claypool. A psych stomper. Hell yeah! I hope Elon Musk is considering this for SpaceX soundtrack.

–Steve Fly

Blood And Rockets (Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too The Moon)


[Intro spoken under music]
Fifteen seconds guidance is internal, twelve, eleven, ten, nine
Ignition sequence start. six,five,four,three,two,one,zero

Because he started with experiments in the backyard, Jack Parsons
As a little boy he already went a bit too far
But the trouble really started when he found another young arsonist
Because together they were ready to reach the stars
(Reach the stars)
So the two began to play around with abscess process
Jack is calling from a local powder company
Then the day began to really … Rocket scientist
Thought that both would do what no one else had achieved

How high
(How high)
Does your rocket fly?
(Does your Rocket fly)
Better be careful boys
You just might
(You just might)
Set the world on fire
(On fire)
Better be careful boys set the world on fire

So Jack became a loyal follower of Mr, Aleister Crowley
He took an oath to be a Magister Templi
His pretty house in Pasadena was notorious for the orgies
Every night Abyssinian mysteries
Then his company became the famous JP Laboratories
His reputation made it difficult to proceed
(Difficult to proceed)
And at their home there was a chemical magical ceremony
They found his body in an pile of blood and debris

How high
(How high)
Does your rocket fly?
(Does your Rocket fly)
Better be careful boys
You just might
(You just might)
Set the world on fire
(On fire)
Better be careful boys set the world on fire

Do what thy will
Love is the law
Fly me to the moon
