Today’s word collage reads like this:

The internal-combustion engine gave man a machine that brings you closer than you ever imagined to the most amazing, beautiful and savage ritual of the domestic marketplace.

Dare to get up-close as life in the wild desert, where fees from around the globe transport you to the heart of untamed habitats, a paradise…

And journey in the foothills of a large population with the amazing wonders of the trucks, buses and all manner of boats from pleasure cruisers to world’s first commercially sponsored nuclear explosion and from two cratering experiments that could lead to nuclear animal kingdom!

Learning to Survive

Volume I takes you into the open plains of the exotic landscapes where breathtaking beauty masks a daily kill-or-be-killed battle…

Encounter a vast wilderness at the tip – a beautiful and primitive sanctuary including most landscapes, can be done.

In the study, the scientists first prepare a computer model of a typical storm.

They say the latest theories. Cups and cups of fresh Blue mountain decaf, fresh Irish soda bread, fresh huckleberries, fresh trout.

Biking into town.

An hour for survival…

Make Today The Day

Above: Cover for the sound collage single, click to download it for FREE on Bandcamp!

Using sound clips, atmospheric loops, video footage shot in Joshua Tree, along with the usual UFOverdriver blend of dreams, the sub-conscious, and the everyday, this sound collage visualscape from UFOverdriver takes a ride through the desert in that strange zone between the blue pill and the red pill, the real and the super-real.

A few quotes from this sound collage…

Politics is weird… and creepy, and now I know it lacks even the loosest attachment to anything like reality… (Shep Smith on FOX News)

Exposure to true information does not matter anymore… (taken from a video of an “ex-KGB agent”…)

We talked through the air in those days… thousands and thousands of miles… (from a reading of a book written in 1913 about the world 100 years in the future which, in many ways, resembles today’s world)

Note: this sound collage, like all my sound collages, is best enjoyed with your headphones on…

Enter the thrill to rare and dramatic life action!

“Lite,” “Active,” “Adult,” “Young Adult…”

Wild majesty of YELLOWS and meet its king, 10 feet tall and can weigh half a ton – this card gets you half…

Take on bizarre rituals to escape the hot sun’s constant torment. Watch and you’ll experience every awesome detail of survival in the wild.

Witness the wonder…

22 Years In Our Long Beach Apartment

Tania and I have now been living in the same one bedroom apartment/studio since May 25th of 1990 – that’s 22 years… and we still love this special place.

In the photo above you can see it on the afternoon we moved in – taken with an Instamatic camera and pasted together in one of our scrapbooks, and again, as it looked on Friday, (the 22 year anniversary of moving in), with a panoramic taken by Tania using her iPhone… that’s one of our dogs, Moseley in the foreground.

New addition on June 24, 2012…

Rosicrucian Secret Sciences – Tongues, as it were.

The idea was to try and hit that beam and that mode that would enable you to communicate with beings on other planets, other galaxies… They were all high as hell, as seen on TV – Sunday, December 18th…

Mini Hand Warmer hills and trees around, and strange the wind lifts under the thoracic box and every convex leaf and the balloon canopy cathedral bowers and now; he is; Nostradamus Complete Prophecies and he gestures and it is blown up, the heater, demolished, a hell of a blast — the voice says…

The Police State Flag

I love the land of my birth, and everyday I try to dream of a better American future…

An America that celebrates it’s diversity, embraces it’s dreamers who live outside the box and off the grid, and a place that is full of generous people…

..the old dream that this is a land where you can be who you were meant to be – where the individual is appreciated…

But when I sleep I’m overcome by nightmares of a dystopian future… and this bothers me very much.

And now days I find myself sleeping way too much…

About This Word Collage – of clothes, NOW

This collage was created in the mid-1990’s. The original materiel for this collage were done on sailcloth stretched over a silkscreen frame. The collage was measured off into 6″ x 4″ pieces, cut out and mounted in a book created for them.

From there I decipher the poem that goes with these beautiful, little pieces of Dada-eques art – maybe even more Jungian than Dada…

Either way, enjoy exploring this world called of clothes, NOW

The poem created from all the various pieces;

Welcome to the beginning of a month of images from a word collage called “Sunday Final” – this is the title page. Much strangeness is ahead…

To create this piece I first constructed a handmade book using recycled shipping paper and cardboard, and then set myself to make a word collage to fill the book.
