Although today is Halloween, it’s a holiday I never particularly cared for. However, since it highlights the children going trick or treating, I thought this was perfect. I unapologetically am a child at heart, and will never, ever change. I 'adult' when necessary, but that’s as far as it goes. My point is that in today’s world, where humanity is at an all-time low, I continuously choose to remove myself, and allow my inner child to be my all-around self. Perhaps if everybody did more of the same, love would be restored, and humanity would have a clue.
Ah, another birthday. Today would have been River Phoenix’s 48th birthday. Aside from "The Mosquito Coast," River as Chris Chambers in "Stand by Me" (that’s the character in the shirt) was one of my favorite performances by him, arguably by everybody. Sometimes I think if River was still around, greats like Leo DiCaprio would’ve taken a back seat, but hey, that’s just me. Too many greats lost so young. #riverphoenix #standbyme #chrischambers #gonebutnotforgotten
My music listening has been predominantly taken over by electronic, mainly ambient downtempo and associated genres, since the mid 1990s. Five years ago today, my friend #PeteNamlook left this dimension way too young, and his label FAX immediately shifted into electronic music history. His collaborative efforts with Klaus Schulze for the “Dark Side of the Moog” series is why I have a Moog tat on my back. We shared a lot of technical loves, and his gifts were priceless. I still cry when I listen to certain records. You will forever be immortalized in my heart, mind and soul.
I can attest to this.
