Wine Review 5/25/2013

Schloss Biebrich Sekt Dry Sparkling White Wine available at Trader Joe’s So tonight I am sipping one of my favorite cheep bottles of sparkling dry white wine from Germany: Schloss Biebrich Sekt . As I take a concentrated sip of this bubbly, fizzy liquid that moves unlike a liquid and more like a gas made out of a fabric like chiffon, my taste buds feel the texture of a bright yellow, summer ripened dandelion. My taste buds start to picture the dirt underneath the grass that covers a big, up-close hill. I am reminded of chewing on the ends of sour grass (that flower/weed with a yellow bloom and a sour tasting stem) as a kid, and as an adult. Then a middle flavor reminds me of the feeling of an athletic fish jumping out of the water in the early morning sun light and splashing salty- fresh-water on my upper lip. Kinda yucky. But I feel really alive. I’m in a canoe and I’ll keep sipping.

Thank you Josh Stone for the traverse toward celebration. Your candle light procession through the streets of Los Angeles lead by an accordion player made Turbulent Time; First It’s The After Party especially special. Thank you Astri and Quinn for using Chime&Co. as test sight #3. Your ritualistic campfire building did infact create community, and YES we noticed the sacred geometry. Also thanks to Chutie and JOHN GERUND and DJ Tiger Necklace for making convo with T Jam. You guys were amazing blasts of sound juice and body earthquakes on stage. Thanks so much for playing!! Can’t wait for the 50th reunion tour. Glad you played your first show at Chime&Co.                

Zolshie in Turbulent Times; First It’s the After Party

Chime&Co. Archive, Now | | No Comments

Thank you Zolshi for reading 1,000 prodigious fortunes last night. From the many people  I spoke with, I gather your readings were like an arrow hitting a golden cloud target. Those who were seeking their futures reviled now have some chewing material to use as they wish. For those of you who don’t know: Zolshi is Yoshie Sakai ‘s insecure physic in training avatar. Sakai often creates characters that function as avatars acting out responses to contemporary society, addressing the social, cultural, and personal. For this show Zolshi guides the participant in revealing the complexities of living in current turbulent times while grappling with the potentials of our future.
