Long time no write. What’s been going on in my life? Everything, nothing, movement, stasis, creation, blockages, etc. I swore “Persona Non Grata” was the definitive end to this maQLu business, but then I also used to say maQLu was my evil twin; well, the problem with putting your evil twin to bed is sometimes […]
Sitting in the back of a dark theatre with my newest friends, eating chocolate and watching the other girls do their tech run-throughs. I should have been more daring in dropping my hints that I’d like you to come. But no… I didn’t invite you to my show tonight just as you didn’t invite me […]
Everything always sucks at Walpurgisnacht. In theory, it’s the biggest celebration sabbat/holiday for Satanists, deemed second only to your own birthday in the Church of Satan calendar, and miles ahead of Hallowe’en. Of course, I’m not really a Satanist anymore, rather some sort of Crowleyite, and I don’t celebrate my own birthday either, really. […]
So, I’ve been having delusions of grandeur leading me to thinking that 1. I should make some new music (well, that’s more of a compulsion, I guess), and 2. that I should perform live again, which, mixed with a pragmatic appraisal of my skills lead me to thing that 3. I need a band because […]
Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com So, this is West Arkeen’s project, West being a close friend with the Guns N Roses guys (he co-wrote a few GNR tracks, for example “It’s So Easy.” He also co-wrote Use Your Illusion I‘s “Bad Obsession,” co-written with Izzy). West founded The Outpatience in the mid-90s and […]
Well, let’s see here… time to start work on a new maQLu album or EP, therefore time to start keeping track of progress on such. First of all, there were some loose ends to tidy up. First, skimming through the blog here it looks like I forgot to post a damn thing about me moving […]
Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Following up from the first tattoo cover-up session and the last one, yesterday we moved on to the left arm, where the cover-up tattoos shift from hibiscus to passionflowers. As with the right arm, we started with the front of the bicep tattoo, because that’s the suckiest one […]
Odds and Ends by maQLu Assorted songs, noise pieces, compositions, etc. that have no other home. Ranges from 2003-2013. Just got this uploaded to Bandcamp today.
Rhododendrons for a Virgin by maQLu Originally released as part of the maQLu’s New Moon Madness podcast in May 2013, reposted to the Bandcamp as an actual release. Inspired by a vague childhood memory of some procession when I was in Catholic school.
Full Moon Mixtape by maQLu For a little while in 2013, I had a monthly mixtape podcast. Each episode had a new original (or at least a demo), a new remix of one of my own songs, and a new noise/experimental piece, along with a cover and a remix of someone else’s track. These are […]
Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Been on an L.A. Guns kick the last week or so, listening on repeat to 1989’s Cocked & Loaded along with their self-titled debut (1988) and the follow-up Hollywood Vampires (1991) on CD in my car. L.A. Guns always kinda got second billing after Guns N Roses, though […]
Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com “I’m, like, so punk rock today. You like my boots?” It was the early to mid 2000s. The news director of our college radio looked at me with an expectant look in her eye as the gold spray-painted bust of Lenin looked on from the shelf in the […]
Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Ah, the peeling stage of healing a new tattoo… when one’s arm begins to resemble a shag carpet made out of old skin. Should be over with and looking good again by Monday.
Originally published on my other blog, blahblahblah.pyradraculea.com Following up from the last tattoo session, today was time for another chunk to be inked on. Technically speaking, this one wasn’t actually a cover-up, but it shall be linked to the first hibiscus on this arm, which is. And why two hibiscuses? Well, on the left arm […]
