With the eyes and help of the incomparable Zeque Penya and Julian Quiamboa, Zach Passero and I just shot this music video for the song 'Earthlodge' by our band Burnpile. The 'Pile's heating up.

Burn a pile.

I appear in this video for the song 'Sleepwalking' by the band My Jerusalem. The music video was directed by Jess Carfield and shot by Chris Heinrich, the duo with whom I made the Spiral Stairs 'Cold Change' video.

More soon!

inside the cake-tin,
unpacking:
the red sleeveless sweater,
sparkled,
and a frisbee

a home filled with music
laughter
art
light

a patio filled with fountain
fire
stars

borges, we miss you
and we are alive

there's something there
moving on the mountain
and we could just be there
if we could just be still

Brown Eyes (demo #3) by justin stone

my brown eyes...
they were really blue, babe
but you were way out there...
I didn't want to say

"We can make it if we try
And if we don't it's gonna still be all right"

Cat On A Hot Tin Rough

"We drove out to White Sands, New Mexico. It was a photo shoot ostensibly intended for an album, but later I discovered that there was no new album. All the same it was an astounding day. Deep, electric, awkward. Benmont kept referring to himself as 'Old Chief What's-His-Name.' Also, 'Whale Bones,' talking about a beach at the end of existence, talking about 'The Whale Road.' At the end of it, a new moon on the rise, Benmont looked at me and said, 'I'm just glad a cat's got nine lives, you know what I mean?' I will never forget that."

If there were a Doc Brown convention on the moon I would surely be there, perhaps even as keynote speaker.

Maybe we ought to look into booking our tickets??

tonight
you


you knew

but not for the first time
and not for the last

should you again become lonely and afraid
I will be there, love

listening to Lungfish all the way into Los Angeles
I saw this thing through and through--
the things I no longer need and those I do

life became simple then, skinless--
I saw my skin shed here atop the skinpile

pulse the stark viscera

the gag reflex--
let us admit
we have been riding it

night on desert--

earthworn
windblown
dusty

take the high road
to see you

you lives here
the body sound

Friday, March 04, 2011

am grateful
glad

to be here

you will come to see
that the ghost in the box
is just a hummingbird
a'thrumming his wings
