Saddening

Being at the beginning of the Interrupt 2 event at Brown
University, I am realizing how sad letters are, and I
play this tune to show that.

urban deterioration

http://www.alansondheim.org/blocknoise.mp3

we now have a sound meter documenting the construction
... noise from the arena. we're way over par. blocknoise
presents the noise from various distances; the c-reading
is low-noise. my nerves are shot; I'm seeing a doctor
for anti-anxiety and sleeping pills, and a pulmonologist
to try and figure out what to do about my deteriorating
breathing.

We are stardust

'We are stardust' from which everything, all philosophy, proceeds, a
timing and process that is always coming to an end. So we are vast, we are
communal, every atom from another source, another distance, every atom
silent as to history from which we draw only this, that history is silent,
that our micro-histories go against the grain, are retardations, are the
source of pain, of holding back, as if there were beginnings and
demarcations evident in Being, and as if becoming were a universal law. We
are stardust, we have already returned as such; at the edge of the
universe our faces and bodies live and project, towards that Being and
becoming, we are observers of the cinema of disappearance; it is ourselves
