COMING SOON: My 1st Vinyl Release – FRIEDMAN ~ HERBACIDE & THE GREAT HIGHWAY

SO I have been wanting to release vinyl forever, and i’ve been doing cover art for my homie Mazzmosis. Now it is his turn to make some cover art for me. Since he loves vinyl so much, his cover art for my vinyl release should be enough motivation for me to actually put out some damn rekkids…right? LEt’s hope so by the end of he year, or next year. Took me like 6 months just to make the last piece of cover art for him, hehehe.

Tonight the CLOWN from a White Mountain Apache Crown Dance stared into my face

the clown“The Devil Dancers or Crown Dancers are not considered to be supernatural beings themselves, but simply posses the “special ability” of summoning these mountain spirits. They are a link between the supernatural and natural worlds and they often reflect this in a contradictory fashion. Part of their power is expressed as a “paradox of life”. In many Native American cultures, this notion of chaos and disorder is personified as the “trickster“, a destructive and simultaneously creative force. In Apache tribes, he is a boy amongst men, in some circles called Libaye, the ritual of “clowning” embodies the Apache beliefs underlying power.”

A description from this blog explains why the dancers resonated with me so much http://nativeskeptic.blogspot.com/2011/03/apache-mountain-spirit-dancers.html#more
