Weatherman Waltz

the maker's dead,
but zeitgeist serves the machines
whirring + whirling,
decerebrated uv gleam

a carousel uv mannequins,
curtsy + spin,
silhouettes pirouetting
blown in the wind
ghost hosts waltz dizzily
in endless figure 8s
animatronic androids
in a dance uv decay

there's a MAN in MAchiNe
take away man + you're left w/ chi
irreversible 4ces
dict8 our course

half-dismembered zombies
withered down 2 threads
wind-up dolls who've lost their heads
rubber souls + plasticeine hearts
melt in2 dust
taxidermied pneumatics
bleed in2 rust

steampunks mosh up dust devils
heard all the way in brazil
2 the temp0 uv weather
sympathetic nerves twitch still
w/ élan vital

dervishes twirl in the snow
on aut0pilot circling round the globe
a diorama uv carbon, coils + guts
we shape our tools then they shape us

> U/i stole th la5t line from Marshall McCluhan ... ⊕ actually iT = McCluhan's friend father John Culkin dat said «we shape our tools and thereafter they shape us» in summarizing McCluhan's ideas 4 a 1967 article in Saturday Review > however, b4 dat in 1943 Winston Churchill said «we shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us» + even further back in 1854 Thoreau wrote: «We do not ride the railroad; it rides upon us» > 5ince our bedder-½ = working on their hippie back-2-th-L& book, iT's worth quoting th Thoreau passage more fully 2 give dat quote contxt:

... It lives too fast. Men think that it is essential that the Nation have commerce, and export ice, and talk through a telegraph, and ride thirty miles an hour, without a doubt, whether they do or not; but whether we should live like baboons or likemen, is a little uncertain.If we do not get out sleepers, and forge rails, and devote days and nights to the work, but go to tinkering upon our lives to improve them, who will build railroads? And if railroads are not built, how shall we get to heaven in season? But if we stay at home and mind our business, who will want railroads? We do not ride on the railroad; it rides upon us. Did you ever think what those sleepers are that underlie the railroad? Each one is a man, an Irishman, or a Yankee man. The rails are laid on them, and they are covered with sand, and the cars run smoothly over them. They are sound sleepers, I assure you. And every few years a new lot is laid down and run over; so that, if some have the pleasure of riding on a rail, others have the misfortune to be ridden upon. ...

> perhaps iT's also worth summarizing Culkin's 5-pronged summary uv McCluhan here w/ N emphasis on th senses (5in¢e thi5 = 5cense.com) + als0 (4 R bedder-½'s sake) regarding late '60 hippie/counter culture types who were probly indirectly ⊕ directly influenzed by McCluhan a lot more then ppl let on (4 eggsample, in th last post Kevin Kelly appropri8ed McCluhan ideas left + rite):

1) 1967 B.C.—All the senses get into the act — Culkin symmetrically (writ-10 in 1967 AD) summarizes humun consciousness + how iT's relative + evolving — Each culture, as it were, provides its constituents with a custom made [sic] set of goggles

2) Art imitates life
— 1st he tocks abt how man has devilipped bodily + sensory eX-10-sions (actually Edward T. Hall's idea, whose book sits in R 2-read pile): stone axe 4 hand, wheel 4 foot, glasses 4 eyes, radio 4 voice + ears + how in '60s L-ectric age, these eX-10-ded sen5es coales¢e in2 1 single unified field uv eXperience ... it's all-at-once > th eggsamples he uses R indicative uv th times, how when JFK = assin8ed th world realed instantaneously + how all their then current concerns reflect this organic thrust toward the new convergence and unity which is "blowing in the wind" (5peaking uv naught kneading a whetherman 2 kn0w witch weigh th wind bl0ws)

3) Life imitates art
— this = th section ware Culkin famously says McCluhan says we shape our tools + thereafter they shape us + how these sensory eX-10-sions interact in cahoots w/ th senses — media = message (or massage) — witch McCluhan perhaps = most fameus 4 sane

4) Culkin/McCluhan eX-10-d thi5 further by st8ing: we 5haped th alphabet + iT 5haped us + then tocks abt importance uv books/language, w/ eMphasis dat iT's naught just about con-10t but HOW th message = conveyed, th transmission (+ BTW, «ƎMiTs TiME» backwoods = «EMiTs TiMƎ» ... g0 figure)

5) 1967 A.D.—All the senses call to get into the act — Culkin/McCluhan tocks abt how print = superseeded by other 4ms uv media dat involve naught just vision butt aural, tactile, oral, kinetic, etc. + ends (BTW, th article = writ-10 w/ educ8ors in mined) by a5king (ala JFK) not what The Beatles = doing 2 «these kids», but what they (educators/parents) have done 2 these kids (presumably dat wd stoke them in2 such a frenzy over The Beatles ... we look now + wonder how repressed these kids must've bin 2 g0 in2 such hysteria) > All the data isn't in on what it means to be a balanced human being

+ now U/i = cot up, in sink w/ data flow thru R CPU 2 output az iSBN + Time's Tide

1035 <(current)> 1037 > U + i = π (± 7,999,255,128) in th dial-a-where H2O gap in ¾-time
