homesteadilee replied to your photoset “Hanging out with these fine folks, of an evening.”

Is that sign what I think it is? Do you literally have a crossroads throne? It looks like you’re presiding over a superhero team meeting….

I do, in fact, literally have a crossroads throne. 😀image

For my birthday, several years ago, distractmymind and her husband obtained for me this very handy Portable Crossroads.

It’s Super Effective.

Sundady Afternoon Phonomantic Divination

Did this in the style of a tarot Celtic Cross. Listened to each song all the way through, before moving on. Gave links and lyrics wherre available. Why am I tell you this, you know how this works.

Me As I See Myself: Billy Idol – [Don’t Need a Gun (Single Edit)]

“Yeah to be someone
don’t need a gun”

Direct Influence: Collide – [Like You Want to Believe]

“all that you take and all that you steal
all that you mask and all you reveal”

Goal: The Smiths – [Rubber Ring]

“And when you’re dancing and laughing
And finally living
Hear my voice in your head
And think of me kindly…

“‘You are sleeping
You do not want to believe
You are sleeping’”

Recent Past: Covenant – [Wall of Sound]

“Overcome the fear to drop the last defence
Speak forbidden words reach out beyond ourselves”

Further Past: Mephiskapheles – Bad John

Near Future: Einstürzende Neubauten – The Interimlovers

“es gibt sie gestern nicht mehr | they are not there yesterday
und morgen noch nicht | and tomorrow not yet”

Me As Others See Me: Danger Doom – [No Names (Black Debbie)]

“On the phone, he sounded like a real paid (“whoa whoa whoa”)
Then we met in person, he was three shades blacker
That’s why he saved money over ball and chain dames
We all the same, no callin names

I’m as smart as him!

What? I got Ph.D’s in four scientific disciplines


Why do you think they call me “Dr. Quinn?”

Um, I just thought that was a nickname. You know, like “Dr. Dre.” East-siiiiiiiide!

Further Future: Aural Vampire – Border Of The Dead

<”in the valley of the dead cars
at the mouth of a flooded mine
i will embrace you hard
and we’ll wait for the sun to shine
in the valley of the dead cars
the valley of the dead cars”> <*Japanese>

Mental/Emotional State: XTC – Respectable Street

“Heard the neighbor slam his car door
Don’t he realize this is respectable street
What d’you think he bought that car for
‘Cos he realize this is respectable street

He realize this is respectable street
He realize this is respectable street
He realize this is respectable street”

Ultimate Outcome: AiBoFoRcEn – [The Dying Rose]

“My leaves sleep at my feet
See my heart how it bleeds
My petals become dry
It’s that thing just inside…”

Well none of that is at all encouraging.

Clarification: Amber Asylum – Aurora

Change of Direction: The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets – [Hookworm (Live)]

“Your wings are cold with travel
Your tools are on the way
My mind will soon be leaving here
Just leave my body where you may
Brought to the rim of knowledge
Drilled deep into my skull
The buzzing eats away my mind”

Now Playing: Wolf Eyes – [Rationed Rot]

So if anyone wants to toss me a spread, I’d be much obliged.
