Listen of the Week: Ecstatic Vision

Sonic Praise by Ecstatic Vision

Their totemic compositions heave and roil with the creaking weight of Hawkwind records, but things aren’t as they seem. Their approach to familiar structures are unpredictable and the casually flitting guitar lines are ghostly, unsettling mirages that change shape and form the instant you feel like you have them figured out.

Friday Fun Facts: Pre-replication complex

Did ya know…?

A pre-replication complex (pre-RC) is a nervous disorder that forms in a human being prior to replication during the initiation step of whole-person replication. Formation of a pre-RC is generally accepted for any sentient being about to undergo complete and total replication process. Complete and faithful replication of the entire person ensures that the clone will replicate the parent in every identifiable detail. Accordingly, formation of a pre-RC is a natural fear amongst those to be replicated. Symptoms of pre-replication complex are as follows:

  • Browsing through railway timetables, directories or dictionaries just for pleasure.
  • Occasional twitches of the muscles, when there is no logical reason for it.
  • Singing or whistling just for the fun of it.
  • Enjoying telling people the latest scandal about one’s associates.
  • Considering the modern prisons without bars system “doomed to failure”.
  • Being quite effected by emotional music.
  • Rarely suspecting the actions of others.
  • Making tactless blunders.
  • Feeling that one is too young or too old.

…So now ya know!

Friday Fun Facts: Pre-replication complex

Spontaneous Nystagmus

You kept us up so late
Between bottles of tart, red wine
Poring over maps from the Middle Ages
That tell us nothing new
Except how little we knew then

You kept us up so late
Black mirror after lights out
Scrying minor fortunes
From a random pile of click-bait

You kept us up so late
We missed the nimble morning
And sunbeams bent through dewdrop prisms

You kept us up so late
The clocks have all stopped ticking

Spontaneous Nystagmus

Friday Fun Facts: Antigonish, Nova Scotia

Did ya know…?

Antigonish is a Canadian town in Antigonish County, Nova Scotia. It is approximately one hundred miles (161 km) northeast of Halifax.

Antigonish has quite a colored history. The townsfolks wanted a respectable burial for their brother town, Polynicesish (which was destroyed when quarreling with neighboring town Eteocleish). Everyone in Nova Scotia spat on Polynicesish, called it a traitor to good, old-fashioned, Nova Scotian vaules, and the leader town of Creonish outlawed mourning Polynicesish’s destruction. The peoples of Antigonish decided to clear the rubble of Polynicesish anyway and then had to roll up to Creonish to ‘splain themselves. The Antigonishians told the leaders of Creonish, “Tough titties. We knew your rule. We broke your rule. We were following the rules of the gods, not those of some putzes in Nova Scotia. Your rule can suck it.” The leaders of Creonish didn’t take kindly to that, you can bet yer ass. They built a dome around Antigonish and said, “No you all can suck it.” The moral of this history lesson is that while the gods’ rules certainly trump those of mortal putzes, the gods are not very expedient builders.

I find your lack of faith disturbing

I wanna be Darth Vader
Want that hollow breathing sound
Wanna give in to the Dark Side
Now that you’re nowhere around

I wanna be Darth Vader
Want that plastic, robot face
Wanna purge all of the Jedi
Now that you’ve given me my space

I wanna be Darth Vader
Want to choke you with my mind
Wanna rep an evil empire
Now that you’ve left me far behind

I find your lack of faith disturbing
