A man with his head wrapped in gauze wears a suit. He sits in front of a late 50’s style microphone sitting in its stand. The crowd is loud even though the man is starting to speak. The man is frustrated and asks the audience to be quiet.
They do not listen.
The man starts, again, louder this time. Yet no one pays attention.
The man waits and then stutters to a start even louder then before, and he is yet drowned out. He asks if anyone can hear him..
The camera zooms out and the room is full of dancing. There are light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. The wrapped man starts to bash out the light bulbs. The room grows darker, but the noise continues.
Do they begin to adorn headlights? Multiplying like stars.
I am not a sure what these images mean. Only that they are in me.
Whether or not, we are who we say we are, we are only ourselves each morning anew.
Let me plunge. Why don’t I work more in the surreal? I am afraid of cheesiness.
That is why. That is no reason to not continue. The dog film is great, the Chicago/Icarus footage is great. Continue working. Do not stop.
Remember. Kick ass, every hour of every day. That is the only way to succeed.
Don’t let your mind be taken by arbitrary symbols. Do not give your energy away for free! Create your own magic.
All artists are self-generated. You are the hype that you create.
The internet is a way to legitimize yourself by yourself in mere moments.
I am molecules. I am molecules that want to create. It is the only thing I know.
Photography has a measure of capturing mans soul in a single moment. What does a film capture? What is the purpose of our work? Why do I need to continue, why is it that I must never give up? These are questions I must answer before I can move on.
Do not allow your fears to control you. We are only here an instant- never slow down. But take care of one self. You are the only one you will have. Your vessel is holy.
We are, I am, this is- whoever I maybe- is starting to figure out more about HERE + NOW. This is an important lesson. Keep upon it. This is the way to right action and right intention.
Decide what YOU WANT in life. And then it will come to you. No sideways walking, no detours that you know are trite. DEDIATION + HARD WORK is the main difference between who I am NOW and who I will be TOMORROW.
Hadit symbolizes manifestation, motion, and time. He is also described in Liber AL vel Legis as "the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star.

Work on What Has Been Spoiled
Has supreme success.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
Before the starting point, three days.
After the starting point, three days.
The wind blows low on the mountain:
The image of Decay.
Thus the superior man stirs up the people
And strengthens their spirit.

Amidst the attention given to the sciences as how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously.
