Give The Anarchist A Cigarette: Counterculture legend Mick Farren dies with his boots on
Mick Farren, rabble rouser, musician, and writer, collapsed last night on stage at the The Borderline, in London. He died soon after.
Hmm, sorry, I seem to be crap at this. Here's some more links to the story:
Mick Farren 1943 - 2013
From Vintage Vinyl News: Passings: Mick Farren of the Deviants (1943 - 2013)
and from Ultimate Calssic Rock:
Mick Farren Dies After Collapsing On Stage In London
That last has a pretty good version of "Let's Loot The Super Market".

I have been thinking about masks
, our ancestors put on masks to become an other, to become a god, even unto this day
. Greek tragedy
began in the worship of Dionysos
, the god of wine, intoxication, and creative ecstasy
, in rituals
where worshipers often wore or worshipped masks. Indeed, the word for mask in Greek drama was persona, now commonly used to describe constructed online identities
. And so we understand ourselves
as wearing masks, whole series of masks--behind which we find only emptiness, for we can never see ourselves truly.
