eXvokation


I lie awake each night with London
And we dream






End of Transmission.


...Due to these things, anything i write will be about madness, passion, spirituality, identity and, most importantly, about the search for intimacy in these heavily mediated times. I am currently experimenting with FORM AND CONTENT - a science and an art that I feel has been grossly neglected by capitalism and its plethora of useless forms, like the internet - through 'character identification', cut-up techniques, spontaneous/automatic prose and street art. Above are just some samples of the template I have been making over the last week.

Like I said, I'm not in it for the security of success. Its purely about the art. A lot of people say a lot of stuff about 'the end of the book'.......
To me such things are worse than nonsense...
And I am appalled by the apparent lack of ingenuity and imagination that hides behind novelty.
The are still limitless things one can do with a piece of paper, though I can understand why sombunal people don't understand this...

('scuse me, I hear an eagle and I'm in central london - probably a seagull, huh?)

....since frankly there is - despite the advertising - a lack of technology of self-expression.

While I am overjoyed by Alan's offer of the Random House contact, the art is leading me towards a certain guerilla ontology - and i can use those words and fucking mean them - and I am considering the merits and virtues of self-publishing in limited numbers.

Thanks for your time and attention.

F.X.

Monkey Mind

By coincidence, I was posting a video clip on Viddler for my NaNoWriMo novel "Infinite Monkeys" that happens to match Bobby's artwork from the previous post here(I had no idea, just one of those 'coincidences'...)

Since then, Ben Mack (Howard Campbell - HC) sent me a link to Christopher Hyatt (looking like Orson Welles, or an ageing biker) talking about Monkeys (2 hrs)

I tried to embed it, but Blogger didn't like it, so if you have a couple of hours, go visit the Google Video.

Some great stuff in there, for people willing to take the time.
