Philadelphia, PA. 9.15.14
instead of paying attention in class i’m reading about wax cylinder phonographs and gramophones and literally this entirely acoustic technology is just a stylus that is vibrated by the movement of air particles (i.e. singing, performing, etc.) and SOMEHOW that is accurate enough to physically inscribe in wax or shellac or vinyl the vibrations necessary to replicate the recorded sound with relatively high fidelity and that’s literally insane
a stylus in some surface can replay vibrations in the air (sounds) that we perceive as music like
this earth is absurd and wild and instrinsically strange and dope as hell
that time of year is approaching
scary lawn decorations
terrifying tv programs

Death is on your heels, baby. And sooner or later, it’s gonna catch you. And part of you wants it. Not only to stop the fear and uncertainty, but because you’re just a little bit in love with it.

A woman who was shot during the protests in Ferguson said police have still not contacted her
It has been a month since Mya Aaten-White was shot during a protest in Ferguson. It took her three 911 calls to get an ambulance, and they arrived with a police escort who showed up with guns drawn, making demands of the people who had rescued and tended to her before letting anyone get close to her. The hospital reports that cops showed up to retrieve the bullet that they removed from her head.
Mya Aaten-White awoke to news reports that she had been the victim of a drive-by shooting performed by 5-6 black people. She denies this report vehemently, saying it was 5-6 black people who saved her life and that there was no drive-by. Furthermore, neither she nor her lawyer were able to find out where the bullet that had been removed from her head had gone.
The police have not interviewed her. A month after her shooting, and with a lawyer trying to help the process along, the police still have not interviewed her.
