A homage to William S. Burroughs [link] and his brilliant book "Naked Lunch" [link] , a book that has been a great inspiration to me all my life...

"During the bienal Panics when the raw, pealed Dream Police storm the City, the Mugwamps take refuge in the deepest crevices of the wall sealing themselves in day cubicles and remain for weeks in biostasis. In those days of gray terror the Reptiles dart about faster and faster, scream past each other at supersonic speed, their flexible sculls flapping in black winds of insect agony."

…also a homage to Gary Numan / Tubeway Army and the song "The Dream Police" inspired by Burroughs book.
Listen to it while viewing my image!: [link]
Actually I think the whole album "Tubeway Army" suits this works atmosphere perfectly… I listened to it while creating this piece.

I downloaded that album just the other day! There was an x-files CD I used to listen to, with Foo Fighters doing a cover of "In the Park" (is that the title?) and yes, I am now a Gary Newman fan =)

I really have so much catching up to do. Haven't downloaded the latest version of M3D yet. My blog has been sorely neglected because of all the drama happening in my life right now. My state of mind is all over the place.

Anyway! Great work as usual! I'll try find that book as well, the piece you quoted is tantalizing.

Gary Numan was great through the eighties, until the Warriors album, started going downhills with that one if you ask me. But all his early albums are great. I was a big fan back then, and still get that feeling when I listen to these old masterworks.

Sorry to hear your life is a mess, I hope you'll get it all together soon.
And the book is a soup of fractal hallucinations, must read it!
Thank you Jody!

Looks like you are floating above the floor, it feels wrong, you need to fix that.
