This Building Talks to Me (poem)

This Building Talks to Me (poem)



In the morning, when I’m

the first to get here

this building talks to me.



We converse on concrete

and wind causing shear

and if there’s a pipe that leaks.



I check for bruises

and screws that are loosest

or cracks that seem to be spreading



or noises that drop

out of some hidden nook

where there shouldn’t be any.



And it in return

in its stout stoic way

Who's Rebelling Now? Rock is Over

Who’s Rebelling Now? (Rock is Over)

The real news is the music revolution – I may be the only person on the planet to oppose what rock/rap/country/pop have become, but I doubt if I’ll be the last.”



Rock for me is over. Time for it to join barbershop quartets and big bands – music from last century. It has become everything it started out rebelling against. If it… Continue

3 Masters (poem)

I dreamt I flew to old Italy
to meet 3 masters there.

with a tempestuous head of red hair.
Da Vinci said little and gazed back at me
his eyes piercing how I worked;
and Raphael, with stains on his blouse,
was too busy courting the girls!

Sayings of Eddie Art (on the state of the arts)

Sayings of Eddie Art (on the state of the arts)

State of the Arts: Decades of blandness and hype



When music starts opposing what rock has become instead of falling into it’s generic molds, then it’ll be exciting again. (and i’ll be impressed.)



Auto tune does for music what photography did for art.

There is a difference in the arts, between new and exciting and old and redundant.
