I keep thinking about the CIA. No one talks about the CIA anymore like they used to.
I’m prepping for an extended recording project for the next nickname: Rebel record.
And I keep thinking about the CIA.
And I think about Black Mountain.

And I watch endless YouTube Videos of John Cage works as research for this new recording project.

I think I understand things about the larger Black Mountain legacy that I didn’t before.
I keep staring at Willem de Kooning’s Asheville (1948).
And I think about different uses of zen and letting go. And I wonder at how John Cage approached that piano with a fist full of screws in the Cornish Theatre vs. how he represented it in 1972.

Oh, and I nearly watched all of the 90s Fantastic Four movie today.
