The Sound Of Science
Hello Physics, my old friend.
I've come to deduce you again.
About how you are deceiving
those of us who are believing,
in the consistency of the rules within this plane.
Tests remain.
Within the sounds... of science.
beep boop beep. beep boop beep.
Artists premise this with makes,
while science finishes with quakes.
Kaluza-Klein put death to division.
Of gravity and electromagnetism.
The making sense of things is real real hard and stuff.
Deducing's rough.
But I still... enjoy the sounds... of science.
beep boop beep. beep boop beep.
Opening holes in time and space.
Mapping genomes of human race.
Creating black holes for tentothenegativetwentyseventhpowerofasecond.
Living forever, without any end.
If you're not shocked at all by what science has in store.
You will be,
in the throws... of science.
beep boop beep. beep boop beep.
Whether you know small quantum ways
or what relativity's made.
The seeds of theory are there for you.
Speculation is the careful thing to do.
Because there alw

So... it's been quite a while since I've written on DA. I've been heavily involved with the Occupy Los Angeles movement against corruption since it's inception in this city. I've been given a wild array of opportunity to advance my career or connection through out the 9 months I've been raging against disenfranchisement. But I rage in my own ways. And my priorities have long since shifted. I am not considering myself or my advancement within a system I haven't any choice in creating or participating in. I'm not meant to be a careerist. So goes the fate of the artist or anyone who is in opposition with the status quo. I haven't had the time to keep up with my artistic outlets cause I've been organizing and agitating for revolution in this country. Though I recently added some older works into a collaborative zine project called the Los Angeles Queer Resistance Collective or LAQR see here: [www.facebook.com/media/set/?se… The issue is penetrating the apathetic attitude the people in this country have, winning the hearts & minds of the masses to provide a resistance against coercion conformity, as well as the giving way for solutions beyond the ones our government & institutions provide for them. This is not a simple task, it is very much a struggle. The police repression I, as well as other participants within this movement, have faced has quickly radicalized us all to take direct action at any given opportunity and expose all of the corruption propagated by the state. I have created some poster art for events and have been part of a screen printing team that swears by collective liberation through direct action. By all means we do what we can to clothe people with our subversive messages to create a much needed dialogue through out. Being that our print lab is an alternative to the capitalist market, all of our clothing, patches, bandannas, zines, stickers, and posters are free and are often open sourced to share through out the broad public. The lack of ownership as well as anonymity has been liberating and deconstructive for the ego. The People's Print Lab has brought subversive clad & propaganda to many neighboring occupations as well as a few further across the country. We've been archived and spoken in a forum for the Center of Political Graphics and our bandannas have graced the streets of skid row to the cover of time magazine. This movement has created a culture of dissent and wide spread resistance is inevitable. If you've ever had any issue where you've felt unheard, marginalized, violently coerced, or unfulfilled this movement is for you. I will do all I can to reach you through critical intervention by way of art. Deconstruct, question, and challenge the status quo. Another world is possible!
