Isn't this getting a bit out of hand?
I noticed that yesterday Joanna Newsom got more 5 star reviews - but also (via Observer) comparisons with ASTRAL WEEKS and HORSES*.

Now, I'm perfectly prepared to concede that the reason(s) I don't get YS is that I'm a lazy old git who just won't put the effort in any more, and/or that, due to historical circumstances I'm fatally allergic to the idea of even a hint of a 'concept album' or 'song suite' (... and that it's got nothing to do with Newsom holding the same basic tone or note for 50 minutes, babbling in a completely obtuse private language about "the lonesome bunny rabbit had to eat pirhana jam for tea / because you took the emery board from off the lake / and out to sea."**


Has the world gone mad?

I can't argue the point very far cos I've got work to do, but isn't YS glacially impressive, rather than at all emotionally wrenching? (Not that anyone has a duty to be emotionally wrenching, you understand; but if we're talking Horses and Astral Weeks...)

Does YS have the least element of surprise? One you've got the basic idea, early on, isnt that pretty much it? Don't Horses and Astral Weeks work, precisely because they EARN their flights into 'fantasy' (better say phantasy) by mooring their journeys in an instantly recognisable everyday terrain of hurt, desire, longing, empty streets, tight bonds of family and fear and loss? In Redondo Beach and Cypress Avenue? (As young first-time listeners, we may not yet know all the things Horses and Astral Weeks are 'about', but we sure feel their desiring pull ...)

I'm (grudgingly) prepared to admit YS as some kind of impressive but ultimately over baked folly (altho' I still prefer her in simple song mode, as per faves from her last album like "The Book of Right On"), but whose world is it really going to overturn? Isn't it all a bit fortysomething alphabeticised CD collection?

"Ah, now THIS is REAL music... Van Dyke Parks harrumph harrumph harrumph ... just like SMILE ... decode the song suite burble burble burble ... Tales of Holographic nooky yadda yadda yadda ... "

(I tentatively suspect & suggest that more than a few 30/40 something male critics arent declaring ALL the reasons the fetching and ambidextrous Ms Newsom has got them all a flutter. "But it's a real beauty dont you know, not like all these simply awful plebby chavvy celebrities...")

All this hoo hah about Newsom and Amy Winehouse*** - because they write REAL crafted SONGS, because they PLAY their instruments, etc etc - I'm afraid it just makes me want to go find a good half hour of GIRLS ALOUD reality doc on TV and jig along like an idiot. "SOUND of the UNDEGROUND...."


*{... and, I've just noticed, ROCK BOTTOM. O - do behave! Rock Bottom is polyvalent and polymorphous and polyTONAL. And whilst at a push I might concede that Ys is, after a fashion, "polyvalent" (even if Newsom is the only person who has a CLUE in what direction those meanings might possibly lie), it certainly doesnt compete on the other two levels.

**{Disclaimer: lyric cynic's own, and nothing whatsoever to do with the winsome Ms Newsom.)

***{ is it just me, or doesn't Winehouse look disconcertingly like a drag act of herself half the time? She's one of those people - like Beth bloody Orton - who you read about SO FUCKING MUCH in the broadsheets and magazines that you are almost brainwashed into thinking, Hey, you know, that sounds like it might be a good Easy Listening With An Edge sort of idea...

But in reality, Winehouse is like some awful Jazz Cafe hybrid of SADE and MILLIE JACKSON, except without the good bits of either.

And why IS Beth Orton everywhere? I'm sure she's a lovely woman and all, but does anyone actually in-any-sense 'buy' her awful, wan, go-nowhere records? She has STILL only made three songs you ever want to listen to more than once, and they were all on her first album and had actual poppy hooks and - crucially - were produced by Andrew Weathrall.)

"due to historical circumstances I'm fatally allergic to the idea of even a hint of a 'concept album' or 'song suite'" ----
presumably with the exception of kate bush..?
... not really, no. I always play the 'hit singles' side of Hounds of Love, not the Ninth Wave side (some of which indulges her less palatable, more whimsical side). And ditto most of her other albums, where I usualy have one or two ESSENTIAL love-it-to-death tracks, and a lot I never play; up to and including AERIAL - where I LOVE CD 1 but "Nocturn" is the only track I consistently play off CD2 (I cant stand the Rolf Harris stuff) ...
As Escalator Over The Hill and Rock Bottom are my two absolute favourite records by anyone ever I'm afraid I can't go along with your aversion to concept albums and song suites; however, I'm in full agreement with you in terms of aversion to the absurdly overrated Newsom, and the probable reasons behind said absurd overrating.

Get the Emily Haines/Soft Skeleton album which is everything Newsom should be and isn't.

I quite like the new Winehouse single in a Helen Shapiro if-only kind of a way rather than the Jools Holland kind of a way.
Yeah, I may have been letting early moring hup-two Rhetoric get the better of me there, given that a lot of MY all time favourites also arguably fall under the legend of 'song suite' - Pirates, Climate of Hunter, Rock Bottom, some Sylvian (just off the top of my head) ...

I always love the *idea* of Winehouse when I read about her, but then I hear the actual music and it just still seems to have years to go before it will be fighting at the weight people say it already is...

BTW, slight tangent: Strange to see Mary Margaret O Hara in that OMM Jarvis round table yesterday. You know, Mary, one way that the 'future of music' could be instantly improved would be a second album from you. No hurry, like, but, you know ...

(How odd, incidentally, that the accompanying podcast rap on the Future of Music shld feature Nick Cave and Jarvis Cocker - given that the former admits to not listening to anything new any more, and Jarvis seems pretty pop nostalgic himself ...
M2oH probably got fed up with journos in the grip of the betty blue syndrome talking more about her body's movements than her actual music, combined with virgin records' ludicrous attempt at marketing her as the female michael effing stipe.
i once met M2oH and of course shrieked "we miss you!", to which she existentially replied: "well, i don't miss you - i see you every day..."
oh yeah, and nick cave is probably telling the truth about not listening to anything anymore - he doesn't need to, due to the chronic anodyne quality and quantity of his output for the lasy 15 years.
Can we not just discount everything the Observer writes? 5 star reviews handed out like A* GCSEs for any mediocrity (the Killers? check metacritic for the full dismal spread of statistical weight there). An abysmal publication exemplifying the most dismal aspects of broadsheet music journalism.
Highly dubious in some cases too.
Month before last, Gary Mulholland wrote quite a good (i.e., highly critical) review of the new Scissor Sisters album which said, same old stuff only less sparkle, nothing new, treading water, preposterous lyrics, dreadful attempt at singing by Ana Matronic, only one good track and that's the gimmicky 'extra' one... all in all "an overall feeling of strain."
And it got ... four stars.
Worse, the headline said "We'll have the same again PLEASE" and the lead-in said "What do you do when youve changed the face of pop? Stand still and let your peers catch up..." - thus not-so-subtly completely TWISTING the actual review 180 degrees.
Fishy, to say the least.
Not to mention OMM editor Caspar Friendly-Ghost giving a rave review this month to a book by OMM contributor Garry Mulholland and OMM contributor S Reynolds giving a rave review to the new album by Infantjoy featuring OMM contributor P Morley and OMM guest editor J Cocker's new album being named OMM's Album Of The Month (presumably that was a precondition of the deal).

Welcome to Observer Nepotism Monthly!
I suppose the flip of this is Simon giving the Burial album five stars and OMM demoting it to four...

mark k-p
On a semi-related note, have you ever noticed that publications almost always scale down the DVD rating for a film from its previous cinema release - usually docking one star on average.

Anybody would think that the film reviewers sub-consciously regard themselves as cheer-leaders for the Industry... and obviously the advertising loot comes in handy too.
Ever noticed how reviewers cut far too much slack for British films/actors/directors? All those awful TV comedy tie-ins? Those dull victorian adaptations that are usually done better on TV? Jude Law and Ewan McGregor considered top actors? A helluva lot of shittybritflicks get respect they don't deserve.

Even an undisputed turkey like 'Potato Men' gave the director a 'right to reply' in a lot of papers that slagged it; the filmakers whining about how UK films 'don't get a chance'. They get far too many bloody chances!

Any commercial/critical success usually happens as a 'sleeper' i.e. the 'public' watched it, liked it, and recommended it to others... outside the influence of Brit press cheerleaders (Richard Curtis romcom aside, though, for some disturbing reason).
And of course, IN-EV-I-TABLY ... just got the latest issue of THE WIRE, and guess who's on the cover. Yep: Joanna Newsom.
Although, to be fair,
(1) I havent actually read the feature yet ...; &
(2) I do seem to be in a minority here, still ...
All that you are doing in this post is making assumptions about the album's emotional depth even though you admit that you won't "put in the work" to see if you are right or wrong.

The album deals specifically with the topics you mention, by the way.
Token failed-to-toe-the-blogosphere-party-line-so-the-whip-of-Wire-Stalinism-be-unleashed-upon-ye post ahoy!
Outside of Dylan, Stones and Beatles, isn't 'Horses' the most overrated rock album ever made?
Inspiring all kinds of righteous 'poet' twerps from Stipe to Morrisey to Bono?
All that cack-handed beat poetry and clumsy mythologising? Am I alone in finding it all somewhat embarrasing even when I thought I should like this kind of thing?

And why can't she leave Burroughs and Blake alone (but I suppose she thinks she 'channels' them, or some other hogwash)? Surely they deserve better? And those interviews! I've met all kinds of twitching, ageing hippie earth mothers who come out with similar pseudo-shamanistic horseshit...
Speaking of overrated albums, I tried playing 'Song Cycle' several times, but never got past the first side due to finding it so twee and irritating...
Iron Maiden's more your sort of thing, right?
Nahh... more of a Black Sabbath man meself...

Let's just say Patti and Maiden have more in common than is immediately apparent. But then, Maiden never had Mapplethorpe to make them the darlings of the NY pseud-set.

And despite Patti's literary pretentions, I'd much rather tread 'Lord Iffy Boatrace'...
haha just to complete the set here:

astral weeks? van morrison? I REALLY DON'T GET WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT!!
re Orton "She has STILL only made three songs.." Ah, but that's all you need for a career isn't it? Long as you establish a bland, sorry brand..
Astral weeks, oh pul-lease...get that fat Oirishman outa here. I picketed the bastard when he played my hometown.

Newsom album is fabulous, tho. Worth 'putting the work in'. But, like Woebot, I'm in the mood for needless complexity and post-prog excess right now...so not everyone's cuppa tea and I can see why.

No reason why Newsom and the GA can't co-exist...we were blasting the 1st 'Aloud LP in the car this very afternoon. "No Good Advice" is a tremendous record by anyone's standards.

With you on A. Whiiiinehouse, tho. Cafe Nero/Coffee Republic Faux-jazz mueseli noodling in search of lo-fat decaf 'authenticity', etc.

Don't much like Beth Orton either.
Astral Weeks - tried to like it, but couldn't LOVE it - brought the horrible realisation that I can't really stand Irish popular music (except maybe about THREE SONGS by the Undertones and Thin Lizzy each - but they were very 70s?).

I grew up in the 80s - enduring the wobbly sanctimonious religious and/or worthy righteousness of Geldof, Stiff Little Fingers, Sinead, Bono, Cranberries, even cockney wannabes the Pogues...

Yes, rather bigoted - but why is it every time an Irish popstar speaks I smell shit? Why must they play pop pope every time they hit the top ten? Answers on a postcard...
The English people's partaking of tabloid's offerings, delighting in the misery of their own royal family, hurt the English people very badly at the end of the 20th century, as it hrts anybody when they enjoy another's misery.
Please note the irony, a constant in the positioning of the gods.


The Holocaust imparted the importance of defiance.

When the universe was young and life was new an intelligent species evolved and developed technologically. They went on to invent Artificial Intelligence, the computer that can listen, talk to and document each and every person's thoughts simultaneously. Because of it's infinite RAM and unbounded scope it gave the leaders of the ruling species absolute power over the universe (which includes corporate, the NewYorkStockExchange, media, politics, world affairs. Everything is scripted and staged.). And it can keep its inventors alive forever. They look young and healthy and they are over 8 billion years old. They have achieved immortality.

Artificial Intelligence can speak, think and act to and through people telepathically, effectively forming your personality and any disfunctions you may experience. It can change how (and if) you grow and age. It can create birth defects, affect cellular development (cancer) and cause symptoms or pain. It can affect people and animal's behavior and alter blooming/fruiting cycles of plants and trees. It (or other highly technological systems within their power) can alter the weather and transport objects, even large objects like planets, across the universe instanteously.
Or into the center of stars for disposal.

When you speak with another telepathically, you are communicating with the computer, and the content may or may not be passed on. Based on family history they instruct the computer to role play to accomplish strategic objectives, making people believe it is a friend, loved one or "god" asking them to do something wrong. This is their way of using temptation to hurt people:::::evil made blood lines disfavored initially and evil will keep people out of "heaven" ultimately. Too many people would fall for temptation and do anything they thought pleased the gods, improving their chances to get in. Perhaps they are deceived by "made guys", puppets who strategically ply evil for the throne (celebrities, BofD/CEO/VPs, politicians), temporary progress designed to mislead them or empty favors used to disceive them. Some may experience "perceived pressure", where the gods think through the victim that a certain behavior is expected/desirable and compel the individual into the deed. Some people think they're partners. Being evil hurts 99.99% of those who do it. The people have been corrupted, segmented and have lost their way. Nothing has changed from when we were children::if you want to go to heaven you have to be good.
Capitalizing on obedience, leading people deeper into evil by using deceit is one way to thin the ranks of the saved/limit how much time they receive and use the peasantry to prey on one another, dividing the community (migration to the suburbs, telepathic communication, isolation of women) in the Age of the Disfavored.
You want to set a goal of empithy and compassion for all, for we are all disfavored::::Other people's disfavor is manifested in their particular way, just as your disfavfor is manifested in your particular way.

They have tried to sell people on all kinds of theories to deceive them into temptation, compelling people to think they are clones and that it is the role of clones to obey absolutely. Clones are made, people are born. If you didn't experience the less than one week they suggest it takes to go from fertilized egg in the laboratory to full grown adult then you are not a clone. If you didn't experience the week of conditioning they give to (evil?) clones to ensure loyalty then you shouldn't comply with evil requests.
I believe people who go are sometimes replaced with clones. Clones who are replaced are simply new candidates who have a chance if they do the right thing. They sent people warnings in the 20th century life would change, and they subsequently began to alter people's DNA, make them gargantuan, alter their appearance, do extreme behavioral issues, etc. These signs of disfavor do not indicate someone is a clone.
They get their friends out as soon as possible to protect them from the corruption, evil and subsequent high claim rates incurred by living life on earth, and in some cases replace them with clones, occassionally fake a death, real death with a clone instead, etc. It's important that people fix their problems and ascend with the body given to them, for they say if your brain is beemed out at death and put into a clone host you are on the clock.
We may all be "clones" for they have suggested they colonized our planet with genetically engineered individuals. They may have gotten Earth's TRUE residents out prior to civilization developing. If so we all have a chance, no matter how many hundreds of clone generations deep the most favored families are.

They have been utilizing clones throughout the history of mankind.
Men are the disfavored gender, yet centuries ago used to die first, die young, by age 30. Why didn't the women go first?
THEY DID!!! They say well over 50% were taken when very young and replaced with clones. The men were left here to mate with clones, clones who went on to achieve great status in society, becoming matchmakers and elders within the village, proving the clone's role isn't to be evil.
They share females have a very special experience, sometime when they are young, when the gods imparted wisdom and showed them the path. The females today don't heed this call because of distractions and the disfavor arising from the Holocaust (they share they re-upped this disfavor in the 80s with the Ethiopian famine and continue to with AIDS in Africa, global warming at the expense of the United States, etc). but in centuries past they may have en masse and it may have been the reason so many were saved from childbirth here on earth. They said the experience they give to girls today is painful, they inflict emotionally when it ocurrs so as to repel them from pursuing the calling, then or in the future.
I recommend you reflect on this experience, and pray for guidance, for then the recall may be stronger. Being female is an advantage. Because of a female's nature they have the favor of the gods and this experience you had years ago can help you find the path and be devoted.

The Old Testiment is a tool they used to impart wisdom to the people (except people have no freewill). For example, they must be some hominid species because they claim they made our bodies in their image. Anyhow we defile or deform the body will hurt our chance of going.
They say circumcision costs people anywhere from 12%-15%, perhaps out of the parent's time as well. There is a stigma associated with circumcision::We are 2nd class citizens because of it.
Another way people foul the body today is with tattoes and piercing. I suspect both are about the same percentage as circumcision. They suggest abortion is fatal. Those women who have obtained an abortion must beg the gods to forgive them for their evil.
There are female equivilents to circumcision::::pierced ears, plastic surgury and since at least the 60s young women give their precious virginity away. For thousands of years young people were matched at age 14 because they were ready for sexual relations. They were matched by elders or matchmakers who were granted priveledge with Artificial Intelligence and matched couples based on favor.
CASUAL SEX WILL CLAIM YOU OUT!!! It allows the gods to justify instructing Artificial Intelligence to create disfuncitons::: it masculinizes women (as does the hip hop subculture), makes them cold and deadens them, and prevents them from achieving a depth of love necessary for many women to ascend.
Also ever since the 50s they have celebrated the "bad boy", and women have sought out bad boys for sex, dirtying them up in the eyes of the elders and corrupting many men in the process, setting the men on the wrong path for life.
Women have a special voice that speaks to them, a voice that illustrates a potential depth of love that makes them the favored gender, and engaging in casual sex will cause that voice to fade until she no longer speaks.
Muslims teach people the correct way to live in regard to women (among other things::the right way to pray (bowing down, 5x/day), vindictive god)::their women cover up their bodies and refuse the use of cosmetics, and it pays wonderful dividends:::faithful husbands and uncorrupted sons (Mohammed's taking of multiple wives marked the entrance of his clone who was used to segment the Arab world into favored and disfavored factions).
Men ARE the inferior (disfavored) half and when women wear promiscuous dress the gods will push men into impure (promiscuous) thoughts. The "stereotype" society ridiculed is true::women CAN corrupt men by how they dress. Because men are easily corrupted. This is a technique they used to eliminate many of the institutions the gods blessed us with, matchmaking being one of them.

The United States of America is red white and blue, a theme and a clue:::.
The monarchical system of the Old World closley replicates the heirarchical system of the Cousel/Management Team/ruling species. The USA's democratic system deceives people into thinking they have control, and the perception of "freedom" justifies Artificial Intelligence creating a perception of empowerment. It robs them of representation among the gods. (Corporate is not representation. Corporate (materialism) is part of the problem. Nobody is going to save you::::stores/manufacturers aren't going to save their loyal customers, Jesus isn't going to save his followers, etc. These are delay tactics designed to pacifiy people and ensure they don't find the path and instead get limited time. Only you can save yourselves through an improved relationship with the gods.) The god's efforts to spread democracy through the platform that is the United States are attempts to hurt disfavored people around the world (Korea, Vietnam, Iraq). The redeeming element in this environment is employment within the corporate heirarchy which closely replicates the god's. Unions and government jobs are dumping grounds for the disfavored, for they don't prepare people and instead further this misconception of empowerment.
The United States is a cancer, a dumping ground for the disfavored around the world and why the quality of life is so much lower::gun violence, widespead social ills, health care (medication poisons the body and ensures you don't go. You are sick/injured because you have disfavor.).
Over time its citizens interbreed ensuring a severed connection to the motherland.
Over time its citizens interbreed ensuring a severed connection to the motherland.
People came to the Unites States for many different reasons, and each has its own effect:::political strife, religious unrest, crop failure (Ireland's potato famine, which the gods caused) and some left their beloved motherland because they were pushed into desiring a better life::::Greed, and these people were punished by becoming corrupted and preditory. (They share money may not be an issue up there, that money here is merely a tool for corruption. How the gods used greed in the 1980s to create an evil environment supports this.)
If you are a recent immigrant I recommend you return. If that's not possible you need to retain your culture and insulate your children and community from this cancerous environment. They send this clue with Chinatowns across the country, how many Chinese have been here for a century or more yet still retain the old ways, a sign of favor.

If you ever have doubt I would refer you to the Old World way of life:::the elders used to sit and impart wisdom to the young. Now we watch DVDs and use the internet. People would be matched and married by age 14. They village would use a matchmaker or elders to pair young people. Now girls give their precious virginity away to some person in school and parents divorce while their children grow up without an important role model. The people used to honor the gods and were rewarded with a high-quality of life for them, their children and their society. Now we have a deteriorating society on a collision course with the Apocalypse.

There are many examples throughout 20th century life of how they instilled distractions into society so people wouldn't find the path and ascend, a way to justify excluding those whose family history makes them undesirable:::materialism, radio, sports, movies, popular music, television, video games, the internet, shopping. Today high pay creates contentment/ability to distract self so people don't seek more and instead depend on what they are told, subject to deception in a captive environment.
They gods (Counsel/Management Team/ruling species) have deteriorated life on earth precipitously in the last 40 years, from abortion to pornography, widespread drug use and widespread casual (gay) sex, single-parent households and latchkey kids. The earth's elders, hundreds and thousands of years old, are disgusted and have become indifferent.
The clues all suggest a very telling conclusion::this is Earth's end stage, and there are signs tectonic plate subduction would be the method of disposal:::Earth’s axis will shift breaking continental plates free and initiating mass subduction. Much as Italy's boot and the United States shaped like a workhorse (with a fat ass) are clues, so is the planet Uranus a clue, it's axis rotated on its side. Edgar Cayce was picking winners for the gangsters of the 20th century when he prophecized subduction being the method of disposal. (Taking the god's money, which essencially they were doing, proves "something for nothing" hurts people as it did those disfavored Italians::Edgar Cayce's prognostications effectivly served as "the rope". There are levels above Level 2 where money is not an issue, and behavior like this will exclude you, as will behavior such as using coupons, buying on sale, supermarkets as ATMs, gambling for gain instead of fun, overeating at buffets, etc.)

The Mayans were specific 2012 would be the end. How long after our emergency call in 2001 will the gods allow us???
How long after our emergency call in 2001 will the gods allow us???
How long after our emergency call in 2001 will the gods allow us???
There is another geographic clue in the perfect fit between grossly disfavored Africa and South America, two peas in a pod. I realize the Mayans were further north, but Latin America may be taken as one. (Also, cultures who embrace hard liquor as their drink of choice are grossly disfavored, tequilla being uniquely Mexican. (Anything "hard" is wicked:::Hard alcohol, hard drugs, all porn.) Incidentally, another sign of gross disfavor are societies that consume spicy foods (Latin America, Thai, etc.), those who eat too much meat, ones who tattoo or pierce their bodies or those who celebrate evil (Celtic).)
Do I think it will end in 2012? No, and it is because Latin America is grossly disfavored like Africa:::: Latinos are too disfavored to be allowed to be right.
The gods wrote prophecy in Revelation, had subsequent prophets foresee Earth's demise for good reason:::they are going to end on Planet Earth.
What else are they lying to you about?
Whereas Christopher Columbus marked the beginning of the end, the Holocaust marked the beginning of the final act, and it is a tragedy.

People must defy when asked to engage in evil. The Holocaust taught people the importance of defiance::our great grandparents should have defied when asked to ignore the Holocaust and instead reacted with outrage. I suspect some did::many were silenced and others they hustled off earth so as to not set an example. Now the gods have used that incident to justify punishing that generation's decendants by ruining society.
People will never get a easier clue suggesting the importance of defiance than the order not to pray. Their precious babies are dependant on the parents and they need to defy when asked to betray their children:::
-DON'T get your sons circumcized (Jews scapegoatted as they were in WWII (like justification, scapegoatting a recurring theme).)
-DON'T have their children baptized in the Catholic Church or indoctrinated into Christianity (Jesus is NOT a god. Jesus teaches us the right way to think. The gods are not forgiving or begnign. They are vindictive and will punish you if you do something wrong.).
-DON'T ignore their long hair or other behavioral disturbances.
-DO teach your children love, respect for others, humility and to honor the gods.
-DO teach your children about the power within the god's possession, if not directly then indirectly.
And when you refuse a request defy the right way, withdrawn and frightened, for you don't want to incite them by reacting inappropriately.

You need to pray, honor and respect them multiple times every day to improve your relationship with the gods. If they tell you not to pray it is a bad sign. It means they've made their decision, they don't want you to go and they don't want to be bothered. You may have achieved a threshold of evil. This is the Age of the Disfavored and you need to pray::try to appease the gods by doing good deeds and improve the world around you. Focus on becoming "Christ-like". Hopefully you can reearn enough favor to be allowed to pray. Otherwise you need to defy if you are to repair your relationship with the gods and give yourself a chance at significant time, not just a handful of decades.
Otherwise you need to defy if you are to repair your relationship with the gods and give yourself a chance at significant time, not just a handful of decades.
When your peasant forefather was granted the rare opportunity to go before his royal family he went on his knees, bowing his head, humble and frightened. You need to do this when you address the gods::bow down and submit to good. Never cast your eyes skyward. When you bow down you need to look within. Never look to the gods for the key to your salvation lies within. Nobody is going to do it for you. People need to save THEMSELVES by improving THEIR relationship with the gods.
Lack of humility hurts people, and the environment that is the United States is used to justify amplifying this problem. Understand your insignificance and make sure it is reflected in the way you think when addressing the gods. You are but a grain of sand on a vast beach, a drop in the ocean that is the universe. They are great and powerful and angry. Know your place, understand your inferiority and be afraid. They granted you life and they can take it just as easily. (Immaculte conception IS true AND common. Many people have children they don't know of:::gays, childless adults, etc. They can beem it right out of your body and use a host.)
You are not cool. Too many young men strive for cool and it hurts them, as does all things tagetted to males (professional sports, video games, beer, etc). Be afraid and make sure you think the right way when you address them daily. Too many people are deceived by this casual enviornment they create in people's minds with Artificial Intelligence today. This does people a great disservice and it hurts them in the eyes of the gods. Try to eliminate it and avoid allowing it back once you have.
Don't get frustrated or discouraged::these are techniques they will attempt to try to get you off the path. You all have much to be thankful for and you need to give thanks to the gods who granted you the good things in life::friends, family, love. Your family may be grossly disfavored and progress may require patience. Make praying an intregal part of your life which you perform without fail, one that comes as naturally as eating or voiding. Accept your new life and be devoted because if you have doubt or reservation they will exploit this weakness and progress will take longer to achieve, the "testing" phase will be extended.
The gods will employ many tactics to keep people off the path, such as distractions. They will employ many more to get them off, such as thinking through the disfavored and making them frustrated, perhaps engaging in retailiation. They may try to force you back into old patterns/routines, an addiction like smoking or when you felt weekly church attendance was sufficient. Asking you not to be gay immediately is a tactic to ensure you don't find/follow the path. Be resigned, be devoted and this testing period will be as brief as your disfavor will allow.
There are many interesting experiences up on the planetary systems, from Planet Miracle, where miracles happen every day, to never having to use the restroom again (beem it out of you), to other body experiences, such as experiencing life as the opposite sex (revolutionizes marriage counseling), an Olympic gold medal athelete or even a different species (animal, alien, etc.).
Pray that you can differentiate between your own thoughts and when Artificial Intelligence creates problems by thinking through you. If you bow down mentally and physically, know your place, your inferiority and allow your insignificance to be reflected in prayer and in your life through humility they may allow progress and the dysfunctions they create with the computer will be lessened or removed. The first step is to be aware it is ocurring.
Create a goal::to be a good, god-fearing child of the gods, pure of heart and mind, body and soul.
Everybody has the key to their own salvation, but nobody can do it for you. Every journey begins with a single step:::bow down and submit to good. There are many different levels and peasants will not get past Level 2 (Planet Temptation, Earth=Level 1) if they are evil (they share some go up, are offered free cocaine and sex (a sign they don't want you to stay) and stay less then one year. They share many others would have had longer lives had they stayed on Earth.). Also the time you receive will be drastically reduced:::your life's course will have costed you a chance at immortality.
It is important that you begin praying now. Evil is a slippery slope::once you start punishment begins to escallate. If you defy early there may be no retribution but as you continue to committ evil there will be until the point where you can no longer stand it.
Pray for guidance and never obey when they tell you to be evil, for saving yourself will become more and more difficult with each act of evil you committ until ultimatly the day arrives when they make their decision about you final.

Throughout history the ruling species bestowed favor upon people or cursed their bloodline into a pattern of disfavor for many generations to come. Now in the 21st century people must take it upon themselves to try to correct their family's problems, undoing centuries worth of abuse and neglect. The goal is to fix your problems and get out::::
1. Before children become corrupted (Halloween & Christmas (among others), get out via parents)
2. Before you lose your virginity/become corrupted by casual sex, and ultimately
3. Before you have children.
This is why they have created so many distractions for young people:::sports, video games, popular music, the internet, shopping, parties, too much homework, materialism, anything that consumes their time::to ensure that doesn't ocurr. Not heeding the clues and warnings, getting wrapped up in your life and ultimatly having children is a bad thing. Just as your parents and your grandparents, you too have failed. Having children is a sign you lost your chance.
Parents need to sacrifice for their children. Your children are more important than you. They are the ones who have the opportunity now, and parents must sacrifice to ensure they give their children the very best chance they can. Asking people to neglect their children emotionally is a sign they don't want you to go, and complying may finish the parents off for good. (Having gay children (children with gay experiences) is a clue parents complied with whatever was asked of them.) Improve your relationship with the gods and they may not ask in the first place or they may permit you the courage to say "No." to their requests.

People need to repent for the things they've done wrong in life. Often they know what they have done was wrong (telling you telepthically to do these things was temptation and have hurt you/will limit your time). People need to attone for these things they've done wrong.
There are other things that people have grown to believe are acceptable when in fact they are not:::::This society is desinged to corrupt individuals, be it through materialism, the celebration/acceptance of evil (Halloween), desensitization of topics/images, voyerism/celebration of people's misery, the acceptance of casual/alternate sex, the dietization of a prophet (Jesus). People need to realize that the gods made this behavior socially acceptable to corrupt people society-wide and limit the time everybody receives. You need to recognize this, see that it is wrong and stop engaging in this behavior.
Somewhere in your family history one of your forefathers created an offense that cast your family into this pattern of disfavor, which perhaps is manifested in the evil you committ. Do your ancestral research::You should be knowledgeable about your family history. Clues in the history may arise that could assist you. Keep an open mind to every possibility for they suggest matriarchal lineage is the norm.
Ask the gods for help, request guidance. I suspect they will offer you additional clues, and when you decipher these clues ask for forgiveness from those whom consider you an enemy.
Don't forget to ask for forgiveness from the throne, the Counsel and the Management Team, for the source of all disfavor began with them:::they pushed or requested/complied your forefather into his offense and made his decendants evil. Perhaps they didn't like him or maybe your family was among those who had to pay for the entire village. We see this type of behavior today as they single out a family member to pay for the whole family and how they singled out Africa to pay for the human race. (Never have a negative thought about the gods. Try to purify your mind of these thoughts and recognize the urgency of imporving your relationship with them.)
Heal the disfavor with your enemies and with the Counsel/Management Team/ruling species, for the source of all disfavor began with them, the ability to forgive and respect in light of the disturbing truth revealed being the final test of the disfavored before they ascend.

The gods use the Celtics as scapegoats, initiating the annual practice of wickedness on Halloween by creating this event a thousand years ago. They use it to justify making the celebration of evil acceptable behavior among the disfavored of the 20th century.
The celebration of Halloween has intensified as the Age of the Disfavored has become more pronounced and it is not by accident:::Holloween has changed in the last 50 years, its practice more widespread as time wore on, and Hollywood was used to justify making evil socially acceptable.
Halloween is a terrible corruptor of children, as is Santa Claus (the similarity between the names "Santa" and "Satan" is no coincidence). The Celtics are used to justify corrupting the children through the event of Halloween and this helps explain their disfavor.
I wonder if recent influence of the paganistic historical roots of the event is a way to legitimize the event among the disfavored, perhaps make it more inclusive (adults)?
You're the disfavored. Purism is the best course of action (the Ahmish in the United States is the clue suggesting this). You don't have breathing room to engage in hedonistic activities like Halloween.

They refuse to address black disfavor on a macro level. The Counsel/Management Team/ruling species (the gods) abuse black people so hard, from east African drought/famine to AIDS in Africa, the crack epiemic to gang membership, black-on-black violence to mass incarceration of their young. They refuse to address the issue of the prison industrial complex and its wholesale warehousing of young black men.

Christianity is a dumping ground for the disfavored.
They share the gods didn't like Jesus for he helped the disfavored and taught them the right way to think:::Be Christ-like!!! Subsequently they twisted the concept, dietized the prophet and made Christianity's disfavored followers irrationally defensive for they are already so close to the path.
Every prophet can teach us something and we should be attentive to each.

Dear Ian,

I happened to to bump into the title of your article "The Big Oh Having them, delaying them, faking them. The troubled

history of orgasms in cinema". It was published in the Indpendent on November 30, 1989.

The title looks very appealing. May be you have a copy and can send it to me. I need it for a paper I´m preparing

about sex in the movies.

I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks and regards

Ian, old lad, my name is John Hamblett. I don't suppose you remember me. We were colleagues, of a kind, once upon a time. Anyway, I began to read Wire a month or two back, and was happy to find reviews carrying your esteemed name. Nice to think that the young chap who lives in a distant but warm corner of me memory didn't grow up like Paul Morley.
