Three examples of content curation. Dissecting and summarizing great ideas:

Jack Parsons in The Claypool Lennon Delirium's “Blood and Rockets: Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too the Moon”

This space has been a little quiet lately, but hey… I got hired to ghostwrite a big-big project and I’ve been working on getting my writing published in other platforms. The latest accomplishment in that regard are these little pieces for the “microdoses” section in Metapsychosis, arguably the most complex and perplexing site around.

For the first installment I wrote about this work-of-art of a videoclip, and among other things said:

LISTEN: Foster & The Pranksters – “La Honda” and “THE ACID TEST” EPs

I first heard about Foster through “Plant the Rapper”, his now-deleted Chance the Rapper diss. I’d just released my reasonings about the superstar’s suspicious rise to fame and his lyrics had ten times more information than my video. Also, they had slick lines and were funny.

His band’s name is a reference to Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters, characters that are bound to appear frequently on this blog, and they’ve just released two back to back EPs that will not get the attention they deserve because they reveal too much. Foster might be a firecracker on Twitter, but he knows what’s up. They combine rock and hip hop in a brand new way; Danny Brown once rightly said that this particular mix of genres died because of Fred Durst, but Foster & the Pranksters don’t sound anything like the ill fated rap metal.

It’s to be noted that “La Honda” features Royce Da 5’9″ on the final track, one of the coldest MCs out there when he’s not defending Eminem.

The formal info about the release says:

September, 2018 – Wow, this was hard. Like most of the artists featured in this art reports, I had to leave Venezuela. My story is material for another post, but the pertinent point is: I haven’t had a reliable Internet connection for a while and that’s the reason continuing this took so long. No excuses though. I have to be more reliable.
This second edition of the Venezuelan Art Report is a music special, because music  was my topic of choice before I promised to write about boring subjects, which I still plan to do. Someday in the future.

But for the time being, in the present, after the jump, you have a kickass Venezuelan Art Report music specialContinue reading

June, 2018. – We travel around the world for the inaugural Venezuelan Art Report.

Let’s make this space useful. I have access to a wealth of information almost nobody is privy to, all of the artists the Venezuelan Art Report will feature need exposure and an international audience and this blog needs some kind of focus. Everybody wins, especially you, the art connoisseur hungry for the new new new wave, for the skewed vision that coming from a destroyed country provides.

This is going to be incredible for all parts involved, I can feel it. And it starts now Continue reading

About my participation in “Together” by Andy Gell

TogetherX

Look, there’s no way around it: I’m a published author now.

I contributed five or six paragraphs to Together” by Andy Gell, a The KLF inspired collaborative book already available.

It’s part of the huge amount of art The 400 are producing following this event, one which you should be familiarized with to understand the novel or even what I’m talking about here. It’s also book two on the “WTF Trilogy” by Mr. Gell.

Since I haven’t read “Together” yet, this post consists of a few quotes from the first glowing review it received:  Continue reading

No time like the present: Everything you need to know about The KLF and their glorious return

The KLF is back using an old name and none of their old techniques. The JAMs returned, but they’re not going to be musicians this time around. They are now gravediggers. And they’re going to build a pyramid. When finished, it will be 23 feet tall, have 23 steps and consist of 34592 bricks, each containing the ashes of a dead person. They call it “The People’s Pyramid” and it will be located in Toxteth, Liverpool.
