Disturbing Nude Beachgoers in Jersey

Written by Alan Cabal on . Posted in Miscellaneous, Posts

Summer’s gone, much faster than before, leaving nothing in its wake but financial jitters and the sour taste of day-old schadenfreude. Labor Day weekend was anticlimactic, like nearly everything else about this first year of the new millennium. I miss the Future. It used to be so opulent. As dusk descended on Manhattan on Labor [&hellip

Genesis P-Orridge Hosts “You Are Being Lied To” at Tonic

Written by Alan Cabal on . Posted in Miscellaneous, Posts

Genesis P-Orridge is one strange and interesting dude. Our paths have crossed on numerous occasions since his days with Throbbing Gristle, in dreams and in waking life. He’s that kind of guy, he gets into your dreams. Old Bill Burroughs was sui generis and an irreplaceable human being, but it’s entirely plausible that Gen sprang [&hellip
