And Welcome… to the Planetary Poets 5th and arguably most groovalicious web wonderland. And what a time we’ve had, moving over to WordPress and getting to know “the ropes”. (subtle enough? – Ed)
This time around there could well be a purpose in our strides – pun well intended.
So this here’s Heads Up sayin’ – “Yes we’ve descended from the clouds – the Large Magellanic ones to be precise – and we bring down for you – BLOGS FROM THE ANNALS OF URANUS.”
No we don’t – but we do bring you – “Brain Farts – Murmurings of Flatulent Minds” – our wholesomely entitled blog.
The truth is that we’ve got some ideas to share because when we’re not busy having the best life we can, we’re often positively concerned about what’s going down on this planet at the moment.
Maybe you too? Maybe we’re Mad!! Maybe we’re all four.
But after a couple of months of hashing this out and sifting the wheat from the chaff, we’re still left wondering if we’re in the running for a loaf of bread or not.
It could all be just another of those Crazy Dreams…. like building the Lion’s Den Studio for instance.
Fair to say – THAT manifestation began as the same kind of itch that I’m feeling now. If you never made it down to the corner of Inspiration Drive and Creative St in it’s hay day, or if you’d just like to re-cache your RAM, you can take a little tour here.
Author: a quick nod to The Lion’s Den .. RIP ……may you live long in spannered hippy folklore.. Epic Times … Thankyou for the lessons…”
Time its different.
It’s not about a place, a venue, but it more about a scene.
It’s not the souped-up psychological culmination in ‘The Working Out’ of an apprentice Wizard’s boyhood footloose infatuations – it’s about a possible way for good people to create lives down the track that are a little more fancy-free, and a Plan B just in case Big Shit really Comes Down…
Sometimes the core concept seems so clearly right, doable and compelling. Other times – I can’t connect with it at all.
So, so many times did I shake my head wondering why oh why am I wasting all this energy, time and money in a hair-brained idea that could be a far distant long-shot of a possible reality. I’ve invested far less in dead certainties.
Just sayin… I’m not convinced it’s real, but it appeals enough to want to go to the effort of defining and presenting it best I can to put out there for your consideration.. If enough people jump on it and are serious about getting together and kicking something off – Fully Count ME IN – I’ll be there in a flash.
***** ——- *****
The guts of the whole idea – the concept if you like, was proffered by a modern day mudblood Rock N Roll singer by the name of Antony Lilley.
– aka “Lord Death” when he’s at home or at the Blazing Swan. Also known as “Tony Amos” when he’s on the keys and DJ FagMagnet by his closest and dearest friend.
Curious that……… ….. . .
Anyhoo, you may know him as that strangely charismatic bearded bald dude who’s pipes graced the halls of Akashic Records’ Red Room most friday nights and as the front man for that ballsy beast of Rock Gods collectively known as ANIMAL – (who incidentally have a spanking new album coming up for release pretty soon that is going to blow some minds) – Ed
He whipped it out and flopped it on the table one night sometime in October 2016 I believe when we were having a casual mental jam on physics, cosmology, consciousness and so on as you do. The entry point, if I remember correctly, was some intensely casual reference of mine to The Simulation Hypothesis and the Holographic Universe Model.
When Tony leaned in and dropped this one, I gasped, and felt light-headed.
then jumped on it immediately, and we spent the wee-hours till dawn and beyond exploring it, defining this and that, and having a right fat old time. We were quite blown out — by our own words I mean… — yeah haha–, – for as we spoke in turn, the ideas appeared to be creating themselves.
Nothing happened for months afterwards – typical of those Aha moments, but the impressions it left were so strong – I couldn’t quite let go of it. I saw so much potential for goodness in the world and every which way I thought about it lead me to another geeky heaven.
I saw potential to address some of the root causes(as I see them) for the state the world is in today ie money, greed, power, control – and what’s more, I saw solutions and even possible means to help facilitate the shift that I reckon really needs to happen in this world Now. And that is – That It’s Time The Good Guys Got The Cash!!
It even gave me an element of hope, which was a really nice change – it’s been a little thin on the ground of late.
So – I thought further, and wider – more obtusively – and lo and behold – a structure formed – pregnant with spiritual idealism – seemingly self-supportive and (in principle at least) able to route money away from the ar-souls and into the hands of the good souls. Bird is The Word!!
So one day I just said – “Fluff It! – I have to lay this down – it needs to be said – It Can’t Not Be! – so I did. Well I started. Turns out it wasn’t quite straight forward as that – surprise surprise.
And then I got sucked into a WordPress rabbit hole the likes of which only come around every quarter cycle of Saturn. Meanwhile, my brain’s back catalog began to morph and merge till before long I was in a full frontal lobe dense tropical jungle, replete with tempting snake.
So, remembering the words of Yoda, I telekinetically summoned my mental machete and hacked the crap out of my head and these web pages.
This made room for some more which you’ve just been reading but my hope is still the same – to create a picture in your mind that somewhat resembles the one in ours.
So go ahead – plaster these pages with your comments, thoughts and feelings please. We’ve given it a fair decent nudge to get it this far so don’t leave us hanging. Ultimately, we’re about you too. And above all –
ps – menu is up in the top right there next to share. There should be plenty of media players around so checkout some of our music.
And remember – the best way to rid your mind of ridiculousness is to go shopping so we’ve catered for that too and you can click here to open it in a convenient new tab. Seriously, the web store is actually the cornerstone of the whole outlandish plan so if you like what you see and hear, head over to www.ppmg.biz and grab a sticker or something please. We’ll even throw in a new house.
