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. | "When The Lie's So Big" by Frank Zappa


This edition of Music What Kicketh Political Ass is dedicated -- in support of our troops -- to the thirteen members of the Bush Administration who have so determinedly made torture legally possible.

Makes you think about poetic justice.

And is any of you are reading this: while you are alive, it is not too late to recant.  Just saying.





 


Be seeing you.
