a removal of self as previously experienced. this is the most accurate description of this increasingly shifting consciousness. there is so much ‘on my plate’ at the moment that thoughts are processed as memories before they are experiences. . . Also, tonight I saw a DVD of the concert we (Jarboe, Bill Rieflin, Victor) gave in Porto , Portugal last September. The performance is so good that I have decided to release it on cd soon… Reading. I came across the book : Take The Cannoli -by Sarah Vowell. She mentions a tape a boyfriend made for her with Aphex Twin and Jarboe. (I don’t think she could handle it either ! ) Listening. The Vulnerable cd from Tricky. (Genius. Again.) … “Experience is the opposite of being creative. If you can prove you’re right, you’re set in concrete. You cannot move with the times or with other people. Being right is also being boring. Your mind is closed. You are not open to new ideas. You are rooted in your own rightness, which is arrogant. Arrogance is a valuble tool, but only used very sparingly. ..Worst of all, being right has a tone of morality about it. To be anything else sounds weak or fallible and people who are right would hate to be thought fallible. So: it’s wrong to be right, because people who are right are rooted in the past , rigid-minded, dull and smug.” – Paul Arden
