Can we just say

Fuck a bunch of steampunk. Please? It was a nice mental exercise. But can it now be fucked? Please? Do I have to see grown men in waistcoats and derbies walking around without a goddamned jacket on? Seriously. If people put a little bit more effort than sticking a broken watch on a pair of cufflinks, maybe it would be okay. Maybe. Naw.



Naw, fuck a bunch of steampunk.

boris videos

A Bao A Qu
When people ask me (they don't, but humor me) why I like Boris, the above pretty much sums it up. Yeah, it's metal. There is some shredding and some tearing a trapset a new asshole. But it's so dreamlike, so enveloping. I love the way that they can manage to make metal feel like modernist poetry. Yes folks, you read it here first: Boris is the Wallace Stevens of metal.

Flower Sun Rain
Or maybe this one, apparently a live Merzbow mix of "Flower Sun Rain" from Rock Dream. To be so aggressively noisy and so damned pretty at the same time.

Or just plain pretty.

But then again, if I was a Boris video, "Ibitsu" would be me.
