that has No Connection

Let’s fall to the bottom of the bottom.

Let’s fall to the bottom of the bottom.

 

convex vestibules convey

vernacular vertical ventricles at vespers –

 

 

liquidity quiddity quantifies rigidity

in rigorous generational genteel frigidity ~/

 

 

segments of sedimentary stagnation

grows with the groveling inflation seeking

inspirational spires’ congealing congregational jellification –

 

 

factor fractious cranks in frivolous facsimiles

of formidable floating filaments/imaginary figments –

An over laugh fingers the quantum quandary

in calculated calcified quadrants’ queries,

as the quick sly brownish fox

jumps over the hazy dogfish.

 

An ephemeral fascination with phenomena in the well of reflection – leaves litter the lane-way, when the glam layaway launders lurching angelic litigation in the least likely liturgical surgery. How simple in solitude.

 

This started with some oddly translated lines from a Japanese Photographer’s Tweets. A mix of Kafkaocean news – Canadian election, Covid & the anti-thinkers, and Afghanistan surrender/fiasco – triggered a stream of consciousness alliteration. Thanks to fellow blogger, Eric Wayne, for the new addition to my vocabulary, quiddity.

 

this way to the flower show

A music video is a short film or video, of variable length, that integrates a song or album with imagery that is produced for promotional or artistic purposes. Modern music videos are primarily made and used as a marketing device intended to promote the sale of music recordings. There are also cases where songs are used in tie-in marketing campaigns that allow them to become more than just a song.

Using a wide range of styles and contemporary video-making techniques, including animation, live-action, and non-narrative approaches such as abstract film, music videos can become surreal pieces of art that convey cultural values, beliefs, and ideologies.  Their dreamscape reality opens up expression of cultural iconography, stereotypes, clichés, as well as universal archetypes.

 

Pushing past the limits of language, they speak about affirmation, universal  desires and hopes, in a dreamscape governed by song and dance, symbols and metaphors.

These hopes and fears sing,

now transcending space and time –

dance to the music.

 

NOTE:

Bongo Flava is a blend of American hip-hop, afrobeat and traditional Tanzanian musical styles, including taarab and dansi (Swahili: “dance music“). While it is influenced by American hip-hop and R&B, it is quickly distinguished from it with strong drums specific to Tanzanian music. The name translates loosely to the “flavour of Tanzania,” as bongo is a common nickname of the capital of the country, Dar Es SalaamSOURCE: Beats Without Borders
