This summer craze of prolonged exhaustion, dehydration and the blooming of insects and a larger species set to dominate the landscape. All assimilated with a hazy Ho Chi Min Pot logic relentless alcohol that put the rage into beverage. Short term excursions into content breed avoidance of the looming negative, with a view of self love all being equal and purity oblivious naivety for all to enjoy. Grinding down. Here comes the pain. The screeching rotation of impending devastation on a scary-go-round and when sleep is on vacation and friends now look highly uncool stripped back from the vanished shiny state, the same could be said of you, but lets extend these positive vibes into realms yet trodden. An early flight, short term departure, fooling yourself that you could come out on top bypassing that centre of the earth cyclone, ready to own you. I find a shoulder to lean on and remind oneself of the pleasure of loathing. No one’s gonna come back for you, so you best hoist those muddy boots and step on out of this overgrown mindfucked jungle after all would you reenter this hell to retrieve a friend or loved one or even the one – singular – that you love? I thought not. Since when did self-preservation become the act of a coward. I think it’s as noble as a purple heart on a purple corpse. If all enacted the code of self-preservation then we’d stop the presses – literally – no news, cause no deaths, only tales of the celebs and their haircuts, diets and prognosis on fellow celebs, a world none of us will ever be privy to. Come to think of it, that kind of sounds like the now. Our present day decision of news value judged by the minority overseen by a major minority running our society. Please preserve your life don’t rely on anyone and when you die and come back from the self induced suicide by the hands of a bottle know not what you can do for yourself but what yourself can do for your health.

Artist's Description

I avoided a ghastly night of repugnant sadness by swallowing some pills and I woke up with these scribblings which best deciphered read like this. I didn’t even understand some of the content so if you – a sassy bohemian user of red bubble – struggle then worry not my droobs, madness has not overcome your sanity, it is just the rambling of man out of his mind of medicinal material merely a momentary malfunction written, decoded and uploaded for you lovely little creatures.
