Notebook, 1988

I have a notebook I started in March, 1988. I think it was a birthday gift. Maybe not. I was 18. It’s full of cryptic lists and notes and scribbles. I’m going to transcribe some of it, then I’m going to throw it out. It may not make any sense.

More after the cut.

And here’s an embarassing rant on metal:

Metal is…
… not metal if there are any keyboards, that is pop.
… not metal if none of the members of the band has a tattoo.
… not metal if the members of the band wear make-up, that if they were girls, they’d be pretty (This means White Lion, etc, are not, whereas Twisted Sister is)

And more lists:

Look up:
Landcruiser (Australia)
Landtrain
Transport
Joy Division
Tiffany article
Letterman book
Byrne Article: Sampling

And:

The context for conjuring up memories / images / ideas of importance was always M.S. That was because there were so many things to discuss, that the process of going through a systematized routine was good at facilitating the conjuring. Seeing cars (taillights), thinking about greatness, the music, the future, stupidity. All this was facilitated by and facilitated thinking. Now, with the AGENDA we can easily access the important things.
