    You know you’re onto something when the first track (‘Blue Grey’) by this Canadian project opens with a shimmering plane of ebbing and flowing ringing tones that swing in from nowhere, hovers somewhere between your ears, and has the effect of transporting you outside yourself. You find yourself floating somewhere in the timeless interstitial spaces between being/non-being, knowing/not knowing, active/static. It’s a place where all states exist, and simultaneously where nothing happens. Here is where you swim, insensate and yet aware, existing in a condition of euphoria and beatitude, borne along by unfelt currents. All conditions pertain here: not only is there the feeling of bliss but it’s chased by an undercurrent tending towards chaos, a soft but insistent growling emerging through breaks in the roiling background. It’s not threatening, but it still carries a thrill of warning, signalling it shouldn’t be ignored.

    ‘Pipe’ steals in stealthily, a gentle humming occasionally broken by vibrating drones that hang suspended like motes in sunlight. As it progresses one imagines a blue sky against which white clouds drift past and evolve in slow motion, transforming, breaking apart, and reforming. Shapes and stories can read into the gradual billows and curls unfolding, expanding and contracting, revealing and hiding in a progressive unveiling. It’s a secret language, a natural one, the key to which could lift the obscuring curtain from our eyes to reveal the hidden things. Imperceptibly, however, the clouds grow greyer and darker, perhaps a note of caution that everything changes and nothing stays the same.

    In the last offering ‘Flowing’, a low bass drone flies in as from a distance, a granular buzz that, swirls, gyrates, and propels itself through the stratospheric heights above our heads, perhaps an obscure call from the remote cold and frigid boundaries. It’s an all-pervasive blanket of sound, embracing and enfolding, energising and invigorating. It’s the species of drone that seeps into the skin and settles, suffusing the system with a thrilling intensity. One cannot help but feel carried along with its flow, a liberating cascade of thoughts and feelings, letting the streams propel us wither it wants to roam. It’s exhilarating yet precarious, comforting but simultaneously disconcerting.

    These are scintillating creations, awash with subtle textural nuances and microtonic variations, always hovering somewhere between divine and earthy, free-flying and gravity-imprisoned. Each of the compositions lasts twenty minutes or longer, allowing each one to unfold gradually and logically, but never losing their focus or impetus. I found the suite as a whole strangely compelling, yin and yang in equal measure but with graduated shades in between. The art here though is that, despite an apparently limited palette, there’s still a sense of a broad spectrum of colour and detail, nuanced inevitably of course, but still there. I couldn’t have wished for a better introduction to the work of Purple Crow.

    (The final three tracks are shortened, edited versions specifically engineered for radio broadcast, a précis if you like of the full track.)

  • Four more years?! Man, this mission is taking FOREVER to complete! *Sighs*

    Linda Moulton Howe reported on the strange and complex death of Jeffrey Alan Lush, sharing an interview with Laura VadBunker, the adoptive mother of a woman who worked with his fiancé and was certain that the pair were ET hybrids. According to VadBunker, the couple would openly discuss their alien heritage as well as the different types of alien entities that exist and also claimed that a widespread government change would be taking place in eight years. Lush, she was told, was a reptilian alien that had been working with the government in anticipation of these changes. Following his suspicious death, VadBunker's adopted daughter subsequently journeyed to Oregon and ceased communicating with her family except for one letter in which she lamented Lash's passing and stated that she needed "time to heal myself."

  • Anytime you think it's "too cold, warm, wet, dry, strange, whatever"... remember this pattern world wide: It's your own sun doing all this! Refuse your LYING GOVERNMENT claiming it's "your fault" for purchasing the only products you are 'permitted' to purchase, produced by these 'legal corporations'. It's all a rigged game just to keep you slave and make you feel bad!

  • Creating new words and phrases:
    Brobot: Highly intelligent, casual and friendly AI that makes you feel comfortable while engaging it - so much so that you are not completely sure if it's an AI or a human.
    Use: Example: "I was getting live technical assistance through their website chat system and they were awesome, I highly recommend their services, but the occasional comment was a little strange led me to believe it might have actually been a Brobot - I am still not completely sure."
    Example two: "Talking with their Brobot is better than the other AIs out there by far. The dude's really chill and is better than dealing with humans on the telephone."

  • "What a time to be 'trending' on a radio station! ...When I'm about to become homeless!" Purple Crow (surreal ambient artist).

    Jasper Sloan Yip, the Music Department Manager of CiTR radio 101.9 FM in Vancouver BC, has told me that I'll be featured in the next music magazine for their station due to the number of times my songs have been played recently on their station. The timing could not be more strange. It is nice to know that at least a few people are enjoying my rare art.

  • Coded doublespeak from egotistical public pissers.
    "You're either a THIS or a THAT - Pick one now, I demand an answer (to judge and mock you publicly with)!" (Substitute variables with ANY strange local lingo)
    More reasons to wipe humanity out. So many humans are so blinded by themselves they don't even see what they've become.

  • What I experienced, what I lived, what I remember, what I know now... Meaning... It's so simple.

    Conjure One - Endless Dream
    (I remember the day this classic was born and lives forever inside so many people)

    It's all coming back to me now
    That strange and almost endless dream
    Where I was you and you were me
    You opened up your eyes and I could see
    That you were falling from the world
    As aimless as a shooting star in orbit around me
    Thinking I was somebody else
    And terrified to look at me and see yourself, well...

    You are like a dream
    And I am just a trip that you are on
    When the trip is over you will go back
    To the places that you once belonged
    You will look for comfort there
    And when you do you'll find that it has gone
    That is when you'll dream a dream
    Where I am you and you are me
    And then you'll know my love

    So don't be afraid
    Your heart is in me
    And it's racing so fast now
    'Cause everything we ever were or ever will be
    Is shapeless as a changing cloud
    Your letter written on the sky
    I'm needing now to read it through my eyes
    When you see just what I see
    Then tenderly watch it change
    And just let it be

    'Cause I am like a dream
    And you are just a trip that I am on
    When the trip is over I will go back
    To the places that I once beloved
    And I will look for comfort there
    And when I do I know it will be gone
    That is when I'll dream a dream
    Where I am you and you are me
    And then I'll know your love quiet now...

    This is just some trip that we are on
    When the trip is over we will think of this
    As someplace that we once beloved
    When I find no comfort here
    I'll look again to find it in your arms
    That is where I'll dream a dream
    Where I am you and you are me
    And that's where I know love

    (Eternal reincarnation in an infinite number of evolving forms to find love and both forget and remember the void we call home)

  • Have you noticed all the CUL-DE-SAC videos and groups out there DESPERATELY trying to 'inspire' you from one little tiny corner of thought on the world stage or another to 'keep fighting' ("Fight the system" and "Fight this other group with us", etc etc etc)? Fake "I quit" videos, and "new business ventures" stating they are "only stronger than ever..... but we need YOUR MONEY to do this!..." *Sighs* They are popping up like WEEDS everywhere lately! So many fake-out videos and people 'quitting'... but not really. It's become cliche, tiring, and damned annoying. Maybe that's your thing, humanity... maybe that's where you're at right now. ...But it's not me at all. I hate such tricks... I only watch as entertainment... unless it sucks... then I just unsubscribe. Of course, I unsubscribe to most for other reasons... but these CUL-DE-SAC groups by the handful are all doing the same thing right now... like pawns on a global chess board getting ready for a war I want no part of... because not ONE of them speaks for me. I'm all on my own here, rejected from every single (fake) 'group' or 'society' out there. Maybe you're like me in the same regard.... maybe not.... but you'll become me yourself one day as well... like it or not.

    Each of us chooses our OWN distractions. I'm not into being a pawn on anyone's 'chess board', or any other kind of 'board', corporate, government, or any other kind out there... especially in WAR!... and they all want us to FIGHT "now more than ever".... fight? I'm sick of your battles and fights, humanity... all of them. So unless one of these 'groups' are able to help me distract myself the way I KNOW I have to to keep what little sanity I have left in my old age (PTSD, Social Anxiety, Physical health worse than ever)... listening to my music... and time alone in nature.... forget it! Go fight each other like your entire species has been doing since its inception... because without what I need to survive, I guarantee you... I won't be here more than a week.... and I've been here too long already. And none of these 'groups' can beat the feeling I get from life in nature with the world's strangest music and time to myself FAR from this sick 'society'. I care not what ANYONE thinks of that. What's my proof? Have you heard of Purple Crow on something called "The internet" by chance? :> I don't think he's been bluffing all these years... and with homelessness around the corner..... well.... you do the math.

  • People want 'good news'.... I have none.... in a human sense... therefore I am 'evil' or at least 'negative' to them, in their 'opinion'. Doesn't bother me. Proud not to be a cancer cell. All 'good news' exists off Earth. (What there is). Other species, my family and even strangers fair better than here. I understand humans want to be 'entertained' and as distracted as possible.... I do too in this form... but all I can offer on this Titanic 'unsinkable' Earth is and it's in dark mode until further notice.
