MORE NAP EYES
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
Nap Eyes - "White Disciple". I do not always understand the Acolyte's parables. I meet him by the fountain, where the water gathers; he sits on the stone bench, I sit in the dirt. It is this way every week. But I do not always understand his parables. Sometimes the stories are very clear: the parable of the peach, the parable of the king with two palaces. Allegories that I can apply to my life and its living. Yet other parables I do not understand. How am I to bring the lesson of the ivy with me, when I go to work? How am I to remember what the first dog said, when I am washing the dishes? I try to be good, I try to be righteous, but I have come to realize that I don't go to see the Acolyte for his wisdom: I meet him every week because I love his stories. I love the way he paints an image or foreshadows a twist. I love the way he uses short words and big ones. I love the way he described the blue priest's hair: Like a blackberries in a bowl. When I am going to work in the record shop, washing a skinny plate, these pictures dance in my memory. It's like listening to a song. Sometimes it drifts on by. Sometimes you are listening and not-listening at the same time, your heart learning the drumskip, guitar-lick, while your mind flicks like a dime.

there's a cool trick you can do if you play the song alongside this video. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5yMyUDFht4). Mute the video. there are various approaches regarding when to start synchronizing "white disciple" with the video. some say it's around 11:01 about a minute before the horse's fancy footwork. I've also been told that it's at precisely 53:46. You can play around with it. The point is, when you line it up right 3 fiery-winged beings will zoom down on a fucking cloud and they'll take you wherever you wantPosted by jake at September 27, 2012 8:59 PM
