It was tuesday night when we flew in…. my road dog Paul and I…. our ship had hit a cow on the way in….the mood was very tense….If we pull over, the gestapo is going to want aboard and I'm not getting busted on alien territory with weed….again…soooo…. we decided to keep pushing forward…. when we landed, it was chaos… Reptilians everywhere, and someone kept feeding booze to these goddamn animals! Tracers shot every which way, and in the distance, all I could see was flamethrowers and the echoing sounds of "WEEEEEEE!" in the distance… I knew I was in over my head….
Around that very time, I saw sasquatch….. No fooling…the real deal…. he wasn't blurry…but he was throwing up on himself. I felt bad for the dude…. He did, however, leave an open seat for me at the bar…so I walked up with my double styrofoam cup….
I bellied up to the bar, looked the bartender straight in the eyes, and said "look here, I don't like you….", then pointed to some dude who was unconscious in the stool next to me and said "My friend here don't like you either….now gimme something that's gonna make this hurt differently or I'll chop your hand off"….. The bartender gave me a hug and informed me that I should probably go to bed, so I did… and that's when I started to hallucinate….
On a usual night I can sleep in the cockpit of the ship with no problem, right through a meteor shower, but this night was different… As I lay down, the cabin windows lit up like Las Vegas as a giant beetle shuffled by, blasting trap music so loud that license plates sang like crickets into the desert air… It sounded like bourbon street out there… I had no choice but to wonder why I was such a terrible person, and then venture out….
I made my way to a Lazer pyramid only to discover that it was just a mirage, and now I was stuck with the daunting task of walking all the way home piss drunk with my mind shattering into a thousand pieces…..
I kept walking and walking and hallucinating harder and harder and had this realization that I don't give back enough, that I'm too harsh on others, and that I should make the best of my life in the short time that I'm here…. But most importantly, I realized that I should get to my spaceship before daylight so I don't get arrested. I made it back….and the whole ship smelled like pizza… I thought about home, I thought about life…I thought about everything I loved…and then I fell asleep….
When I awoke, it was sunday…and everything in sight had been burnt to ashes…. I searched for all of the beautiful things I had seen but they were gone… I began to feel terrible, but then I felt relieved….and lucky to have seen them at all…
We packed up the ship the next morning and put it into hyperdrive, and I said a prayer…
"Dear god…. thank you for everything you've bestowed on my most prosperous journey… and forgive me for all the hearts I've broken, people I've wronged, and all the bikes I've stolen when I was too drunk to walk home…. thank you for letting me see another day…"
before I knew it, I was back on my home planet in the mercury mine….breaking my back, wishing I was back there in the desert losing my mind…..
this mix is dedicated to one of my most favorite places in the world… a place where I've laughed, I've cried….I've completely lost my shit…but subsequently found so much more… This is dedicated to the Black Rock desert…. Where you build something beautiful, and burn it the fuck down… Loving and letting go, just like the most precious things in life that you have to love and let go… your family, your friends… it all goes away in the end, so enjoy it to the fullest while you have it.… Come on out…….you can have it all….my empire of dirt…
