We Are Together Now

This is a version of a classic Quebb song written by me in 2004…Performed in full, arranged and recorded by Micah Nelson, a brilliant singer/songwriter and multi-talented musician/visual artist in Venice Beach, lead of Insects vs. Robots, and too many other things to list.  Brilliant.

We Are Together

(Lyrics and Melody by John Caelan, originally performed by Quebb).

You see a division.
You hold the line.
You see disease in our invention
But you say we’re doing fine.

You see the ruins.
You tie the bind
You see the ease of resignation
To the automated mind.

We are together now.
We are in deep.
We are together now.
We are the covenants we keep.

Go tell the soldier.
Go tell the farmer.
Go tell the poet and the Pilate
The myth of our armor.

Go tell the seers.
Go tell the blind.
Go warn the rich man and the poor man
Of the automated mind.

(Chorus)

You see dissension.
You hold your own.
You see the crystal night unfolding
And you say we are alone.

You see them gather.
You stand behind.
You hear the calling of the common
To the automated mind.

Go tell the powers
Go tell the small.
Go tell the prophets and the preachers
Of the oneness of it all.

Go tell the fury.
Go tell the kind.
Go tell the stubborn and the stranger
Of the automated mind.

We are together now.
We are in deep.
We are together now.
We are the covenants we keep.
We are together now.
We are in deep.
We are together now.
We are the covenants we keep.


Ponderous…

Be.  And be part of.


Mutual Blogsturbation

Mutual Blogsturbation:      Definition:       The act of bloggers, Tweeters, and other social media producers building their statistics off of purely reciprocal follows and likes and subsequently establishing no actual base of readership, while creating the illusion of cultural relevance and potential revenue streams.

Examples of Uses:  (1) The apparently popular Twitter account was really a product of endless mutual blogsturbation, following countless numbers with the goal of having a large percentage follow back, even if they never sample the content.  (2) Joey was up late every night, mutually blogsturbating other WordPress bloggers.  (3) Mutual blogsturbation made Annie feel like she was loved, but it was an empty affair and left her feeling sticky. (4) By setting up multiple accounts, Tom was able to auto-blogsturbate, but mutual blogsturbation still felt better.


The Future

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick….time’s up.  Better luck next life…
