Gedächtnis der Listen...

TLASILA - Elton John vs. Thurston Moore

Both EJ's 2004 franchise-shoring Peachtree Road und T-Byrd's new, schlager-centric Trees Outside the Academy are strikingly similar. And no, that's not a bad thing.

There's no point in jousting with entropy...



If you've been examining the threadwork along the frayed edge of the zeitgeist, well, it's obvious - the recursive elements are offensichtlich.

My son Evan is now scheduled to return to the States (from a 15-month tour of duty in Iraq) on October 18. So motherfucking happy... Army personnel on rotation from combat operations receive a week-long debriefing, and are then released from active duty for a month-long leave. After the holiday, reassignment. If all goes as promised, Evan will be deployed Stateside. So motherfucking thrilled...

One major related disappointment - my tour with Alexei Borisov and Anton Nikkila was supposed to have begun in Helsinki on October 24.

With Evan excused from duty on the 25th, well, unavoidable and seemingly insurmountable difficulties ensue. No need to elaborate - I simply can't be half a world away when he leaves Fort Farm Fuckhole in Kansas...

We were gonna go to the Ukraine! To Tallinn, Estonia! To Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yaroslavl, maybe a few other towns... Shit! I haven't been there since August 2005; I miss the East and Scandinavia so much...

Paternal instincts utterly overpower my wanderlust. I must stand with Evan.

There might be some sort of workaround possible, but at this juncture...

Fuck... Hooray! Fuck... Hooray!
