music is my hot hot sex

Music Is My Hot Hot Sex - CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy)*

From all the drugs the one I like more is music
From all the junks the one I need more is music
From all the boys the one I take home is music
From all the ladies the one I kiss is music (muah!)

Music is my boyfriend
Music is my girlfriend
Music is my dead end
Music is my imaginary friend
Music is my brother
Music is my great-grand-daughter
Music is my sister
Music is my favorite mistress

From all the shit the one I got to buy is music
From all the jobs the one I choose is music
From all the drinks, I get drunk off music
From all the bitches the one I want to be is music

Music is my beach house
Music is my hometown
Music is my king-size bed
Music's where I make my friends
Music is my hot hot bath
Music is my hot hot sex
Music is my back rub
My music is where I'd like you to touch

Fui escoteira-mirim
Direto da escola, n�o
N�o ia cheirar cola
Nem basquete, pebolim
O que eu gosto n�o � de gra�a
O que gosto n�o � farsa
Tem guitarra, bateria, computador saindo som
Alguns dizem que mais alto que um furac�o (rh�um)
Perto dele eu podia sentir
Sa�a de seu olho e chegava em mim
Sentada do seu lado
Eu queria encostar
Faria o tigela at� o sol raiar
Debaixo do len�ol
Ele gemia em r� bemol
Fiquei tensa
Mas tava tudo bem
Ele � fod�o, mas eu sei que eu sou tamb�m

an interview with joshua witten

an excerpt from an interview i did for the lovely chloe gallagher of the fenario gallery:

CG: you have a fantastic piece called the antigravity machine that depicts a boombox and a break dancer. are you a dancer yourself? a music lover? what kind of tunes get you in a creative space?

I wouldn’t call myself a dancer per say but I can shake it if I need to because I truly am a lover of music. “The anti-gravity machine” represents my great fondness of the hip hop culture and aesthetic. At the time I was listening to a lot of Common and At The Drive-In and if you look closely enough you can see those influences in the work for sure.

please visit chloe's blog, party like an art star to read more.

also all apologies to David Hockney.

behold, a story untold

sorcery of self:
a phrase i coined
and now surrender to you

it's as if i've swallowed
an interior decorator

i like my heart where it is

i cannot make
your past disappear

only rabbits, my love,
only rabbits

depleted memory banks
have grounded our emotional economy

we have been forced
to create a new currency

one that will truly allow us
to love our neighbors
for reasons beyond guilt and pity

i have offered myself
to the inkwell of the wordsmith
that i might be shaped
into new terms of being

only through new words
might new worlds
be called
into order

i stretch my body
into your symbols of statehood

i am
a citizen
casting my vote
and net
in the same breath

i dare not keep what i reap
i am only fishing
for momentary companionship
