Shoot, Keildh, for what it's worth, losing your show, to me, is the toughest part of the sched. change. Hits from the Crypt has been the most hypercharged reinforcement of what rage should do, aim at, freaking SAY in the world.

I first heard Uniform on Marty McSorley's show. GUessing William Berger hit them a few times, but that was then. Great band. Reminds me in good ways of Ministry circa early 90s. Disturbingly intense rock and roll.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am mariano:

In terms of poetry, I notice that the bad poetry category has been woefully underrepresented here. Here's a bit from Theo Marzials, credited by some as the worst poet ever in English:

A Tragedy (Theo Marzials)

The barges down in the river flop.
Flop, plop.
Above, beneath.
From the slimy branches the grey drips drop,
As they scraggle black on the thin grey sky,
Where the black cloud rack-hackles drizzle and fly
To the oozy waters, that lounge and flop
On the black scrag piles, where the loose cords plop,
As the raw wind whines in the thin tree-top.
Plop, plop.
And scudding by
The boatmen call out hoy! and hey!
All is running water and sky,
And my head shrieks -- "Stop,"
And my heart shrieks -- "Die."

It has been a real joy to share the D&D updates with you, Keilidh. I'm glad you get our game.

Also: Here's that poem. It's my favorite. And I'm going to type it from memory and not copy-paste. Gimme a sec.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am mariano:

Andrew: a few years ago a friend of mine asked me to make a mixtape of Sabbath and Sabbath-like bands for his five-year-old daughter. She'd apparently heard some somewhere and really liked it. One of those "My how times have changed" moments.

Keilidh: yeah it's so epically bad.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31am Handy Haversack:

Louis MacNeice
"The Sunlight on the Garden"

The sunlight on the garden
Hardens and grows cold.
We cannot cage the minute
Within its nets of gold.
When all is told
We cannot beg for pardon.

Our freedom as free lances
Advances towards its end.
The Earth compels.
Upon it, sonnets and birds descend.
And soon, my friend,
There shall be no time for dances.

The sky was good for flying,
Defying the church bells
And every evil iron
Siren and what it tells.
The Earth compels.
We are dying, Aegypt, dying.

And not expecting pardon,
Hardened in our hearts anew.
But glad to have sat under
Thunder and rain with you.
And grateful, too,
For the sunlight on the garden.

@ mariano -- OUCH! yes Theo Marzials surely is awful -- looked him up, a William McGonagall has also "been lampooned as the worst poet in British history" -- however they all pale in comparison to some of the stuff my friends/roommates would be subjected too while at NYU's Graduate writing program -- such as "Footprints of My Forgetting," an epic that went on for pages, with such stellar lines as, "you were the teeter/I was the tot" (i am NOT making this up, my two friends worked so hard on their writing, they struggled with every word!) . . . and of course there was the woman who was putting together the reunion for my high school some years ago -- she considered herself a poet, had a ton of stuff on a website called Poetry.com -- and i do not recall the rest of the "poem," but she rhymed something with "like a beef roast"

I think I shared this once before, but fuck it. POEMS.

Refrigerator, 1957
By Thomas Lux

More like a vault -- you pull the handle out
and on the shelves: not a lot,
and what there is (a boiled potato
in a bag, a chicken carcass
under foil) looking dispirited,
drained, mugged. This is not
a place to go in hope or hunger.
But, just to the right of the middle
of the middle door shelf, on fire, a lit-from-within red,
heart red, sexual red, wet neon red,
shining red in their liquid, exotic,
aloof, slumming
in such company: a jar
of maraschino cherries. Three-quarters
full, fiery globes, like strippers
at a church social. Maraschino cherries, maraschino,
the only foreign word I knew. Not once
did I see these cherries employed: not
in a drink, nor on top
of a glob of ice cream,
or just pop one in your mouth. Not once.
The same jar there through an entire
childhood of dull dinners -- bald meat,
pocked peas and, see above,
boiled potatoes. Maybe
they came over from the old country,
family heirlooms, or were status symbols
bought with a piece of the first paycheck
from a sweatshop,
which beat the pig farm in Bohemia,
handed down from my grandparents
to my parents
to be someday mine,
then my child's?
They were beautiful
and, if I never ate one,
it was because I knew it might be missed
or because I knew it would not be replaced
and because you do not eat
that which rips your heart with joy.

@ mariano -- ahh Ewan McTeagle!

The show after Marty and still up for a party
Before we hear Darren, we'll hear music that's scarin'.
Don't go to bed,

These sounds are cooking, like a beef roast.

Avatar 1:43am winofigments:

@Rory, I was having a very rough time in April. Worst anxiety I've experienced. Maybe your situation is different but a few important things might include trying to stay on a schedule of eating and sleeping. Go for walks. If you can focus, pick a relaxation exercise. I started using an anti-depressant for the first time and it has helped curb the disaster thinking. Music definitely helps too.
Avatar 1:44am spodiodi:

catching up... lol, Ken. love it
  1:44am Dave Miss:

Wait. Who got the roast beef award?!?
Avatar 1:45am northguineahills:

I tried anti-depressents from friends w/ similiar symptoms, and they either made me devoid of my personality, or, made me sleepy all day (w/o really sleeping much).

Avatar 1:47am winofigments:

@northguineahills: with anti-depressants they will affect everyone differently. I'm on the lowest dosage of Zoloft and feel pretty normal. I do get sleepy but I was like that before the med. I just knew I had to try something to alleviate the anxiety and I hate Xanax or anything like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am mariano:

winofigments: Never could stand Xanax either, always made me feel horrible.
Avatar 1:53am slugluv1313:

@ Rory -- yes, what winofigments said :)

when lockdown first started, i found that i HAD to go out, just to take a walk -- and any sort of physical exercise really helps . . . years ago, i was working full time but would go to a Hatha Yoga class after work on Mondays, and then train in HapKiDo after work for two hours Tuesdays through Fridays . . . and sure, life was far from *perfect* but at least it was easier to deal with all the CRAP that gets thrown at you . . . and as with antidepressants, you gotta find what type of physical exercise works best for you (recently was prescribed Paxil, it did NOT go well -- totally put me to sleep, so i stopped taking it after two or three days)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59am Rory:

@winofigments - Yep, taking walks does help! I workout everyday so that isn’t a problem. I’ve just experienced years of trauma that’s taken it’s toll along with the pandemic and an oligarchic system that works only for the few. I tried warning people. They only laughed, now here we are!
Avatar 2:00am spodiodi:

coel @120 -- glop is great and reminds me of this stuff they used to clean up vomit at my grade school: stores.productsbydustbusters.com... Z GOOP
Avatar 2:02am winofigments:

Probably a lot of us had some internal strife brewing and the pandemic plus the economic effects made it explode. My parents are in their 80s and it made me worry more about them. Sounds great that you work out. That's the best anti-depressant.

Avatar 2:08am slugluv1313:

@ Rory -- yes! working out is best antidepressant!
is it possible to get another social worker? someone who actually knows what they are doing (i have dealt with many who are just kinda . . . passing through) . . . or some sort of therapist/counselor/advocate? or some sort of group? (even if virtual)
dealing with trauma is fucking DAUNTING -- and unfortunately there are too many out there (either clueless, or just do not want to be bothered) who give you all this "just get over it" CRAP -- so being able to talk with someone who is there/gets it really really help

@slugluv1313: I’m sure there is help. My state is shit at taking care of anything, mental and physical health. It’s asking too much. My last psychologist was unhelpful and in a kind way said fuck your feelings. Right now we can’t even get the masses to wear masks or care. I’m currently avoiding some in my family because oh Covid-19 ain’t no big deal! I worry too much.
Avatar 2:20am northguineahills:

@winofigments:thanks for the input. If I get health insurance, I'm still wary of taking any anti-depressents.

I used to work out a lot and take long walks, but my psoriasis has gotten has gotten so bad that it's gotten painful to exercise, let alone sleep. I've lost most of my muscle mass.
