Anonymous Sinks, WWF FM Microphones, Turntable Controversies

Sometime in 1974 Otis Rush played in Japan. I know this becuase his 1975 delmark album has pictures of his impassioned stance as his wails into a crowd of Japanese people. The japanese cats are kinda cute, sitting their attentively watching this guy sing. I can’t think of any paralell between this album and my life. I just thought I’d mentioned it becuase I’m listening to it.

Anyway, cleaned my bathroom today sparying 409 all over the place eventually infesting my trident gum with 409. Spit it out and got to work on the sink. The sink is a magical place, becuase I’ve never really looked at it before. When I first got the apartment it was already occupied with clothes I was stacking into the closet next to it. It came after the toilet which required excessive work becuase it was pretty much plastered in cat hair, sand from the litter box, and other materials of unknown origins. The sink was pretty much easy, I just moved everything and wiped it off, but I have this real anonymous sink. It doesn’t like seem to be from anywhere. I’d never given much thought to home appliances before, but at the very least my bath tub and toilet both seem to have a distinict style to them. Yeah know you can think of a movie, magazine, or house you’ve been to where someone had consciously decided this was the bath tub they wanted etc. But my sink floats outside of this world, as if no one had ever choosen to use it before, as if it’s the other – around which other sinks organize, materilize, and generally talk shit about each other. I can think of no place I have ever seen my sink before, and while you’d think this would make it unique, it instead lacks an individualism. You can’t place it, it has no cultural context, no polemic to be juxtaposed too, no assumed pre-conception to which it brilliantly skews. It somehow just is.

Anyway, Adam at Eyedrum is looking for alarm clocks so I told him about my radio alarm clock fm mic idea. Basicly, you set the radio clocks to go off one after another in 5 minute intervals. As the clocks go off, the signal from the FM mic. gets another amp. After I told Adam about FM mic.s he bought some WWF wrestling mic. off ebay that warps your voice ala Axel Rose’s microphone into a simulation of your favorite WWF wrestler. This mic could change the world. In case you didn’t know Axel Rose’s voice was electronically modified to make it sound that way: hence that huge fucking microphone he always had. There was something else I was thinking of, but I forgot about it.

I don’t really have anything I wanna add about the WPRK controversy. There’s not enough time for the DJs to all play etc. And they expect some of them to go on around 2:30 or later at The Social. People are upset. Trying to get an after-party going so the DJs not even choosen can spin somewhere. Went by Career Services at Rollins to see if they can find more steady work for me.
