A small trip down memory lane using vintage footage of the city of Angels in the late 40s - early 50s with some Miles Davis music as backdrop culminating in the red witch hunt of the era trying to convey a period feel (J. Edgar Hoover and Bertolt Brecht can be seen testifying before the House Un-American Activities Committee), enjoy.
(Respect to SheiKyeRbutT1 for the amazing time-capsule. Dedicated to G.M. who was there, back then)

To lose at science is the accident of trying,
for worse or, best, acceptable ways cells divide
then swell into heart, spleen, spine
for every satisfaction, and love also aligned
according to sense. To carry a child
inside the shaky side of feeling wild
about it, to feel the shape of him
in inches lengthen, his heartbeat a hymn
that life can be taught without knowing
a thing, with all the opinions he, growing
older, would naturally form, based, again,
on chromosomes that deal out death and gain
like just another round at a half-lit table
of weary players hoping their hand is not terrible
as mine was. Little is given.
is a mindless science too accurate to withstand.

H o p e is that thing with l e a t h e r
A hope exchange, share market:
a corporation or mutual organization which provides trading facilities for hope brokers and hope traders, to trade hope and security. Hope exchanges also provide facilities for the issue and redemption of security as well as other instruments and capital emotions.The securities traded on a hope exchange include: shares, unit trusts and other pooled investment products especially bonds. To be able to trade a security on a certain hope exchange, it has to be listed there. Usually there is a central location at least for record keeping, but trade is less and less linked to such a physical place, as modern markets are electronic networks, which give them the advantages of speed of transactions. Trade on an exchange is by members only.

Art is the most intense expression of individualism after unreasonable violence.
Art is a non-sense / use-less social activity.
Art is i n t e r v e n t i o n i s t.
Art is i n t r u s s i v e.
Art is someone's emotional discharge creating an emotional stir-up to a total stranger.
Art is a c o d e x of ideas.
The more genuine the idea, the less appealing is the art.
Art should be d i s t u r b i n g .
it is yet one more version of common knowledge.

I walk alone;
The midnight street
Spins itself from under my feet;
When my eyes shut
These dreaming houses all snuff out;
Through a whim of mine
Over gables the moon's celestial onion
Make houses shrink
And trees diminish
By going far;
My look's leash
Dangles the puppet-people
Who, unaware how they dwindle,
Laugh, kiss, get drunk,
Nor guess that if
I choose to blink
When in good humor,
Give grass its green
Blazon sky blue, and endow the sun
Yet, in my wintriest moods,
To boycott any color and forbid any flower
Know you appear
Vivid at my side,
Denying you sprang out of my head,
Claiming you feel
Love fiery enough to prove flesh real,
Though it's quite clear
All you beauty, all your wit, is a gift, my dear,
