Too tired to even finish short blogpost about the Wyrd West but if I leave this magick picture of Loki’s Unicorn here then I’m sure it will come wake me in my deathly slumber, won’t it boys and girls?

Ah yeah…

Belated congratulations to the Western Wyrdoes in this month’s Wire. I have a long list of unblogged things that I’m grouping under the New Baby excuse but it would be unseemly for me to suggest that writing a little something about Hacker Farm fits into that chronology. Anyways, suffice to say that to read the article felt like three or four goals for Team Nowhere (geographically-speaking, at least) and a few chords were struck. I’m particularly pleased to see “impossibly spritely” Kek’s face in there, as his nimble spirit has shone a warm and pathetically welcome light in these dark quarters more than a few times. Other than that it was good to have a cemented sense of what spurred Farmer Glitch to mend/make-do, mangle and manifest, and to be sorta introduced to Kemper Norton. Of course the whole piece was brought to life with openhearted word-surgery by benevolent culture-juggler Matt Woebot… if I myself had ever finished that fucking Hacker Farm piece it would have hinged on explicating a kind of shared value of unpretentiousness/creative honesty in the Farmers but also people like the man Ekoplekz, people who chase after/or are inspired by something with a genuine ardour, rather than cop a style, and use it as a jump-off point into the unknown. Finally though, the greatest thing about the Hacker Farm feature was Loki and the pony. I don’t even know why really, it just was.
