“In a new GQ profile, Rev. Ted Haggard addresses the continued assumptions that he’s gay, following revelations years ago that the prominent evangelical had a drug-fueled sexual relationship with a gay male former escort: “I think that probably, if I were 21 in this society, I would identify myself as a bisexual.” But, he told GQ’s Kevin Roose: “I’m 54, with children, with a belief system, and I can have enforced boundaries in my life. Just like you’re a heterosexual but you don’t have sex with every woman that you’re attracted to, so I can be who I am and exclusively have sex with my wife and be perfectly satisfied.” […] “You’ve got to understand, Kevin, people are, at their cores, hateful,” he told Roose. “I don’t want to believe that, but the facts have prevailed over my idealism.””
What I get from the article is that he’s a guy who was hurt, by himself and others, has moved past denial into a murky area and has taken advantage of these details to craft a new life spiritually, emotionally and financially. He seems happy finally. But there are hints that his words should be taken with a grain of salt, if taken at all because this is entirely personal. For instance, he and his wife bemoan the way megachurches do things though he made a great living off one for over 2 decades and there’s his sudden belief that people are hateful by nature specifically because of what he went though. It’ll be interesting to see where his faith and sexuality take him over the years.
This track is a Krautrock-or-Fela-level stretch-out, kicking into a fully-fledged-funky groove and never letting up; Klaus Voorman bounces things along nicely on the bass, the drums slowly build the train-like churn from a breakbeat stomp into a Faust-like barrage; and John shreds and shards the guitar like a slightly-more-in-control-than-usual Sonny Sharrock. Ono’s freak-out vocalising (if you can’t call it “singing”) pushes the whole thing into the stratosphere. (via [Audio] - Yoko Ono - “Mindtrain” (1971) « Musicophilia Daily) —and yes, there’s a streaming copy of the song, and you really should hear it if you haven’t…
A former cement factory
by Ricardo Bofill
i posted about this a while ago, but this photograph better exhibits the cement-factoryness of the building. it makes no attempt to hide what others would consider to be ugly, such as the low-grade exposed concrete finish on the ceiling, in fact making features of them and as such making them beautiful.
this is how it’s done.
Today was probably the best I’ve felt for the past week, so I randomly decided to put the spandex and SIDIs on and head to Prospect Park. After three laps, I headed back to Greenpoint, and managed to catch an amazing Sunday Sunset at the East River Park on the way home. Sometimes solo steez is the way to go.
