VALENTINE'S DANCE AND BARBECUE
-
2/14/2022 7:33pm

Slipped out the back door for a little pre-gaming before our set, and noticed the lines are all the way around the side of the gym. I wonder how many of them are here to see The Outer Gods? They wouldn't let us into their soundcheck.

You can already smell the barbeque clear across campus. That's probably helping, huh?





VALENTINE'S DANCE AND BARBECUE

Yes, Psychic Drum Circle (you should see our new logo!) was a little disappointed not to be headlining at the Valentine's Dance and Barbecue. And, as the opening band, were asked to do a less-than-three-hour set.

We've never heard The Outer Gods, but they sound like boring old classic rock guys. What kind of weird mind control do they have over @Prefect Alan in order to get that gig?

I entered the Fortune Drawing from the brand new Wellness Center, hoping for guidance in the matter, and got this free randomized fortune reading back from Violet Numen:

-----------------
roots. 
the roots are writhing and you cling onto a top branch, 
a place where you are soon interrupted
what is up with that? 

patches of consciousness, waves rolling

the free randomized control image:
todays diverge, creating two new paths,
and the two Salutations Children have seen time
and accept reality
as soft dreams of the lonely.

patches of consciousness, waves rolling

the unknowable corners
of where we’ve been properly introduced
is an enormous intimidating reading
for… drum roll please…

patches of consciousness, waves rolling


-----------------

I'm really not sure how to take that.






Year End Sock Hop

We didn't know the intermodal interior enlargers would detach. They were rated for maximum occupancy, but maybe it was something in Jack Rip's dance that caused the inertial couplers to... decouple like that.

The safety doors closed around some socks but it appears each of the interior space modals sealed safely, and have enough life support to last for at least as long as it takes to retrieve them from null space. So long as the students trapped in each one use the proper bio-reclamation protocols. Which can be a bit embarrassing in close quarters. But we all took that training in safety class, amirite?

Overall, pretty amazing first show. I'm happy with it. I'm asking @Prefect Alan about playing at the Valentine's dance.

Lines are already all the way around the gym! Sounds like they’re already planning on the intermodal interior enlargers, so nobody should get turned away. Also, body socks available at the door if you don’t have your own.

Preliminary set list for our Sock Hop show:

Terrorizing Mine Shaft Ride
Purple Diaphorous
Niji No Ue Kara Shouben
Einstein Chip
Pleiades Sequence

Encore: Rockin' Bones (traditional - ft. Jack Rip)

That should be just under three hours.

Looks like the psychic drum circle has a chance to "go legit" -- we just accepted the Year End Sock Hop gig, so we'll be jammin' in the gym on... whatever night that is. Is it a New Year's Eve party? If so, I should ask @Prefect Alan for more money.

I will say it is hilariously typical (and tragic) that even after saying they want to make the year end sock hop more inclusive, what do they name it? THE YEAR END SOCK HOP!! I mean, names matter, people! It just makes me want to play my drums harder.

Anyway, this means the campus security dorks should start leaving us alone when we practice, which will make things a lot easier in terms taming JACK RIP and the woodland creatures. New recruit @abbi is doing a great job on the bongos, which @Caleb IV808 has rigged up to the psychotronic lighting rig mounted on his truck, Caleb Jr.

We've kept the psycops pretty busy, moving around to a new location every night. But we can't keep the beats quiet, so we'll keep drumming and I guess they'll keep coming. @Lia Bezos suggested we study echolocation and project our drumming ventriloquist-style to confuse our position, so she's been working on that.

Even with all the disruption, we're making better and better friends with the light being. Its name is Terri. But I call it JACK RIP because how how it leaps and streaks through the sky, bounding and dancing. Like lightning in human form. It's always super cool till the psychops come.

Just follow the beat or ask someone who knows, and see you tonight!

We were all pretty surprised about what happened last night, and it's not fair that pshigh security shut down the drum circle.

The animals are harmless. Especially when they're mesmerized by the beat like that. They've been coming out for nights, slinking out of the woods in their slow procession -- bunnies, skunk, foxes, deer, and even the bear -- and lining up in rows like that because they're attracted to the rhythms which means they LIKE them right?? When do you ever see that kind of solidarity in the woodland creatures? (I mean, when they're not banding together to prevent ecological destruction of the forest, and who can blame them for that?)

But in terms of that other thing our drum circle called up -- that "light being" or whatever they're calling it in the school paper -- it was friendly too, ok? Things didn't get out of hand till those psychic rent-a-cops appeared with their bullhorns and spotlights and killed the generator on the PA system. All that mayhem that happened after was THEIR fault, not ours.

Drum circle will continue in an undisclosed location. And if you're welcome you already know where that is.

BOOM BOOM BAP BOO BOOM BOOM BAP BOO

Pretty lonely at the drum circle last night, till I realized I called up a bear out of the woods. Who even knew we had bears?

I'll be back at it tonight. Let's lay some psychic beats down!

Who's got the crazy beats around here?

Drum Circle. In the maintenance cabin down from lower campus. Midnights.
