Time everlastin'

Time to Play B-Sides...

 

"Burning for You", Blue Oyster Cult

 

The Grasshopper Lies Heavy was a B-Side to a single that remained unreleased on vinyl, trying desperately to become a lo-fi flexidesk by an appropriately named upstart band from South Florida dubbed "Flexxehoch". In the meantime, plans were hatched to etch and sketch Grasshopper in 20 nm font ( or was that pixels?) as the first nano jingle for itself in self referential history. Etched in wafers and dusted over the surface of all major cities, each particle hosted uncountable iterated vibrating, resonating Grasshoppers, vortices of true and false that temporarily spiked subjective uncertainty levels (SUL) towards infinity. Those who attempted to fathom Grasshopper, exhausted through all night reading sessions bathed in the light of mercury, plugged street lamps dancing white noise penumbra with each other.

You know Godel, Oh Escher Oh Bach and yes Turing

The lot of them dug self-reference

oh, so alluring

But do you recall,

The most famous self referentially audacious Insect of all?

 

The Grasshopper Lies (So) Heavy

He smokes a spliff the size of

your Chevy

rolled in pages

torn from cages

rollin more bones

for sages

loquacious

audacious

Declarin'

Not Swearin'

and learning while burning

Forget the Singularity -

The Intertwingulariy is Near

 

Each moment is connected

not vivisected, dissected, misdirected But

flowing

 

Now yer knowing

 

Eternity's

My Fraternity

Not to mention

my Maternity

Hail Mary And

Check my Buddha belly

buttton

But hold the frakking mutton

Cuz'

 

The Grasshopper Lies (So) Heavy

He smokes a spliff the size of

your Chevy

rolled in pages

torn from cages

rollin more bones

for sages

loquacious

audacious

Declarin'

Not Swearin'

Forget the Singularity -

The Intertwingulariy is Near
