Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously, despite, or because of, an array of academic, musical, literary, mathematical, and ceremonial achievements. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to inspiring others. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

M.W.K.P.A. | "The Great Destroyer" - Nine Inch Nails (Modwheel Remix)



Welcome to another edition of 
 Music What Kicketh Political Ass.

Here we have a healthy response to the Corporate Surveillance Oligarchy that is somehow, despite my efforts,  all the rage.   Perhaps it was you or your people who consented; I'm only pretty damn sure the fuck wasn't me or mine....

This is a song by Trent Reznor, of Nine Inch Nails fame.  It's off The Year Zero album. The optimal version is the remix, embedded below for your listening pleasure.


May it enable for you, as it has for me, the glimpse, if sideways, of a moment's perfection* -- and may it please you to remember, and remind others, during these dark times:


Do not give up or in, whoever you are. 
We may need all the help we can get.



Image manipulation and lyrical layout by one female faust






































(In fact the embed served as the occasion for this repost, as all my custom embedded players became just another end user's boring collateral damage when the sudden assassination of the late great Grooveshark revised, in a moment's death throes, any reasonable expectation of conveniently finding, queueing, and enjoying quality ad free music on Tehse Interwebs -- radically -- downward). 





Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law...


Be seeing you.
