(context as follows:)  

1. UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS – look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen- the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes!
 
2. BOSSES HANG – labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also – the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also – more of us than them! also – what we need now is shovels, wells, and barricades!
 
3. FAM / FAMINE – how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. with the dull edge of an arbitrary meritocracy. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine. the forest is burning and soon they’ll hunt us like wolves.
 
4. ANTHEM FOR NO STATE – kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn’t give a shit because it knows it’s dying too.
 
 
finally and in conclusion;
the “luciferian towers” L.P. was informed by the following grand demands:
+ an end to foreign invasions
+ an end to borders
+ the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex
+ healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right
+ the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again

Hey guys, 

I (Fariha) was in the band MORI’s (listen to them, they’re amazing) music video. Check it out and spread the word of their music. THEY’RE SO GREAT!

OF MONTREAL - MONTREAL

One, two, three, four

Montreal is where I began to feel inside
The gray sadness of winter
You told me that this isn’t it and I drove away

Walking to the statue in the park
Through snow drifts up over our knees
And every street sign written in French
We sat by the statue, you looked in my eyes
And then said, “I’m so sorry”

Later, laying on your bed
Wondering what’s going wrong
Every time I’d ask, you’d start crying
And whisper, “I don’t know why
I only know what I feel, what a voice says to me”

I may be here now
But I’ve never left Montreal

the heroes series : KEVIN BARNES

I’d like to do a series of portraits of all the artists that changed my life in some way. Well - it’s impossible to draw all of them, there are so many ! But among them, there is Kevin Barnes, the neurotic genius behind Of Montreal. His music is the soundtrack of my soul. Amen to that.
