Looking Back at St. Stephen's experimental writings: 5 and Dime

Five & Dime: (or 1 in 10 + 1): [1-5; pp. 200-210]

The above link is to a piece of writing by St. Stephen of Thee Uncondemning Monk. Thee Uncondemning Monk is not simply about sound and light via "music" and "film," but rather we embrace/borrow/glean/steal (so far) any and all methods for fabrication, creation, the making of artifacts and markers of splace-time, what peoples call recordings, we capture these explorations, even the mundane ones, especially the mundane (how sacred it can become, and then secular again, not like the turning on and off of a light switch, no, not a nightlight, but also not not a luminous ding). 

Thee eradication of the frozen, as Kafka and Walter Benjamin request of us, as Nietzsche calls for we who hear and take up our hammers, to philosophize and sound out the hollow, others call for a tuning-fork, that we should tune-in, turn-on, drop out, DROP BACK IN (so often forgotten, we must shout it now). We also know, as you may to (you will shortly), that it is high-time, neigh passed tide-highs to Philosophize with an A-Bomb, perhaps now its time to vaporize with even never vibratory technologies... sucking that all in and blowing it out once again, do we make imagary breath when we speak in our head? 

The above piece of writing puts into action the bricolage technique; as well as other methods gleaned from Burroughs and Gysin; and other unconscious infantile and influential  flows... we hope you enjoy this short writing (image) experiment...

Album review by St. Stephen ov Thee Uncondemning Monk

Let just jump write in with what St. Stephen wrote (on behalf of Thee UM) on FaceBook: you may not understand or get from the title how anti-bigoted this album is; but it is, as we see it, a rejection of stereotype of what people OUGHT to Be, not what they are or want to be, as such homosexuality, indeed the entire discourse that is known as Queer Theory (QT) has largely been overshadowed by a loud minority that seek approval from breeders or the ideal white middle-upper-middle class family and its "christian" values, and seek to normalize, homogenize, codify, the sexuality of non-heterosexuals... as if having sexual relationships with persons of your own biological sex makes one be a certain way; this is not true (at least not necessarily so), people adopt or lean toward these cultural identities, and instead of making them their own, they conform to their idealization of these stereotypes; and if anything this should be the reverse (inverse, diametrical opposite?), we should adapt these cultural identities to our needs (if we must use them at all)... I hope that I have been clear in my explanation of my interpretation (and may my utter seriousness not mar the enjoyability of what is an unpretentious and enjoyable album)! ROCK Gangsta!

Here is the link to the Wonderful Album... No, that is not its name, the title of the album is God Hates Fags (Mr. Fist keep AMAZING us, day after day, new material, old material, it doesn't matter... shine on  your crazy diamond):

December Update: Future Senarios and Current Currents

Greetings from Erehwon,

Much has happened. We will start with the great new first and then wind down. We are proud to say that Thee Uncondemning Monk is now regular present in the sway of Coyotel Priest A.A. This is a great occasion for celebration, some mote it be, to control abandon embrace a historical modern destruktion, empty form, life returns, even before the winter, hiding in the cave tiny one, virus goes, what have we done, surely not done enough, you don't even stand there you sit, you sit, you sit, in the sway; go through not around, there is no other passage way; go through to the crown, there is not but a fool on he/r way, as such it is a gloomy day and another day of WAR before the red of a dawn; no clock we wind you; the day grew longer, and time personal, space was as it was, now different. We prepare, we continue on our mission (

AIN23 is now being fully supported through our A.A. channels as such we will continue to contribute to all sound and visual projects they here-forth offer... and this too is another part of bridge-work and as we understand the free-radical has been trasnforming in his potientila (Nuit) that s/he (Hadit) are able to become, one is infinite says A.C. As such Audio Project #4 23 Seconds In Time Audio Project is still open!

Many new track have been release on SoundCloud; a few on Reverbnation on FaceBook, and a bunch are being worked on. A semi-secret/secret project is on it way to reveal its truth to those who we shall appear to, those that has found us. As we get closer to this secret project we might and might not talk about it here; these things have not been decided, and as such whatever transpires, there will be something very new on the horizon.

Thee UM has also been working with Hal's Contact Compilation where one minute songs are the standard... we are currently engage in a chain permutation and can hardly wait for this to be realized, but the fun is only starting as the chain-mails pour in...See our latest in Contact Compilation 5 (collaborations only):

So, as you can see, much has been happening.

And not just one more aside, but a great thing, we are also now supporting the work of Brunhild Ferrari ( we all can look forward to collaborations of a different nature.

Well, that is the report... please go check out the sites, because one song by Thee UM does not mean the next song has sounds in common... style, all submit, change, moving forward... work; sound - sigil ! 23 ! A.A.
