This is his reading of Meanwhile Juxtaposition Adorns Dreams.

I’m winded.

Are those my words?
I’m really struck Parasputin, excellent, excellent work.

  1. The response to this has rendered me speechless, and that takes some doing. The words were hers, and the rhythm was archetypal, so therefore belongs to all of us. I just put them together.

    SBM, big up yourself, you nasty dub fish.

  2. Seriously. I bow to the greater Genii that are both you and parasputin.

    awesome, brilliantly written and produced.

    Well done guys!
