Head Notes 4/30/10 0951 AM

Geopolitics is about memory.

The United states is still the world's largest manufacturing base at about $2.8 trillion per year. This larger than China's and Japan's output combined.

U.S. oil production is about 85% of Saudi Arabia's, the world's largest producer. While we are second on the natural gas front, Russia being the first.

Facts taken from:

Need to work on an essay on why I believe independent artists, publishing companies, etc. can coexist with mainstream conglomerates like Amazon, Lulu, and Random House, etc. Some examples: The Melvins, ECW Press, Vertigo Comics (imprint from a conglomerate), etc.

Head Notes 4/29/10 10:29 a.m.

I once read a poet in the zine Abbey that mentioned she memorizes a poem everyday. I need to try that. But probably need to go for one a week. :)

Today, I'm thinking about different sales channels with the same or different products. Different avenues. I need to grow Calliope in all it's forms

Index Librorum Prohibitorum

Private Library: Index Librorum Prohbitorum.

From Private Library:

For a little over 400 years--from 1559 to 1966--the Roman Catholic Church proscribed what could and could not be read by the Catholic faithful in a series of lists of prohibited books, the infamous Index Librorum Prohibitorum.

Head Notes 4/27/10 23:32

Is it time to rid Calliope Nerve of the free e-book format? Or limit it to a certain length of time? Revenue generation is needed to grow the business.

Medicate would make a strong title to a book.

Word snips in my head:

We get to begin again
When we run this night.
Take another beautiful life.

No Meds

So, honey how was your day?

Well other than my broke worthless no health insurance loser ass is out of bipolar meds again, I only had ten voices in my head instead of twenty. A new record! My day was fucking phenomenal. A real beamer. I never thought it could get this damn good.

In fact, since we have kids I'll wait at least one more day before I jump off the bridge or swallow all the sleeping pills.

Value Added Tax??

Appearing on PBS’s “the Charlie Rose Show” Monday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “in the scheme of things I think it is fair to look at a value added tax as well,” and described the proposal as “on the table.”

Not my kind of music, but the visuals for Rihanna's website are definitely the way I want to go with the Calliope Nerve makeover.

notebook 5apr10

Found via Warren Ellis:

"The slogan 'Revolution or Death!' is no longer the lyrical expression of consciousness in revolt: rather, it is the last word of the scientific thought of our century." --"A SICK PLANET", GUY DEBORD, 1971

Ellis is at it again. I love the Notebook posts.
