What if you were to press one button on you PSP telling which mood you are in, every time you turn it on? What are the possibilities, what kind of use and power does this give…will it have an effect on sales market, politics… what can or will this generate?

The grace of Tokyo, the hidden tradition in its modernity, the considered wisdom in its audacious, world conquering economic dreams has struck me so very poignantly this week. I wonder how Sony became. Who breathed life into this ‘Corporation’. It is undeniably a modern god, but as with Buddhism, did it start with one man? What were its original aspirations? What were the personal experiences and beliefs and experiences that formed it. Was it formed from wars fire? Was it always intended to breed collective riches, or has it only lately been usurped for the benefit of the elite faceless ‘many’. As much as huge corporations are intended to scare us, I find myself seduced by Sony. Drawn in. I fetishise the black hardware that softly digests my studios space, that eats square feet of ‘home’.
As I drove through early morning sun back across to Narita, across what passes for countryside in Chibas shadow, between valleys sides and rice field spread, through deep fields of sea mist, I felt it. I felt its benevolence, and I felt more content than ever before. Better Japans corporate gods that bow courteously as they steadily close around you warm and tight, than the American, burger scented corporate scum that say ‘fuck you’ as they annihalate your culture and make you gag on their own vile, empty, worthless greed.

An invitation to a children’s party, filed conveniently… in the roses, I saw this at no 70 when visiting for tea.

Tom Mix in his 1921 Cord

Monday, 24th of October, 2005 @ 2:00pm

Silent film star Tom Mix was killed in a freak auto accident on 12 October 1940. Famous for his high-living ways—including his love of fast cars—Mix was speeding across Arizona in his 1921 yellow Cord when he unexpectedly encountered a bridge under construction. Braking and swerving sharply, Mix dislodged a heavy suitcase from the luggage rack behind him. The suitcase crashed forward into Mix’s head, killing him.imageimage
