中心の決意が 自分の中で 何度も何度も何度も 砕け散る事に 限りない歓びを 覚えよ
feel the ultimate joy towards the resolve of pillar being shattered within you again and again and again

近づくのが 歓びではなく 聖なる狂気と 呼ばれてしまうものも やっと現れてきた

少しだけ くぐもってきた
君の その挑戦状を 新たに 磨き直して 何かに捧げよう

brush up your cartel and devote it to something

自分の 外で輝いている光に 全てを託すのではなく 自分の中に 在り続けている「どうしたい?」と...

Loving this LP. Released when I was 12 years old, just heard it today for the first time.

"Heavy Metal Parking Lot" (1986) is on youtube

Posted: Apr 23, 2012

There should be an appendix to this film with the Godflesh parking lot interview from "Hard & Heavy 14" (1991), when some cromagnon drives by playing "South of Heaven".

Had a beautiful experience in Seville last week/end for the Easter processions. Such a powerful, emotional tradition! Paradox of reaching beyond but firmly rooted in the terrestrial. Although this is clearly in the public much time is spent chasing down the processions (or crossing the processions) on small side streets. Thanks to Patricia Terry for the guidance.

Here are the processions we witnessed:

Friday Midnight to 1400

El Silencio
El Grand Poder (entering church at dawn)
La Macarena
La Espera...
