Ed Ruscha (free) 04:15 video
Ed Ruscha It’s a happy mess A particular kind of heaven Another Hollywood dream bubble popped December sixteen nineteen thirty seven Fat boy, Hot shot Texas hairspray Cold beer, beautiful girls What else can I possibly say I used to say Rhoos-ka But it’s really Roo-shay Petrol station on fire! Country Cityscapes Thirty four parking lots Real estate opportunities Babycakes with weights Dysfunctional family Utopian Slumps A certain form of hell Bliss bucket, Wall rockets That was then this is now I used to say Rhoos-ka But it’s really Roo-shay La Cienega on fire! Damn traffic today… Omaha, middle America Get to the heart of matters Standard Station, Amarillo Nineteen sixty nine Crackers Royal Road test Honey I Twisted I don’t want no Goddamn retrospective I used to say Rhoos-ka But it’s really Roo-shay Museum of art on fire! Dance the night away…

Running In Reverse (free) 01:55
Running In Reverse There were icebergs accumulating Floating down the street Offenders assimilating And counting the beat There were targets on our backs Wreaths at our feet Sweetest damn girl You ever did meet Unidentified face down Sinking in the creek Blowing your inheritance Inherently weak We never tried thinking Before we would speak Square peg round hole Just needs a little tweak What’s the running order (Running in reverse) Where’s the gagging order (Running In Reverse) What’s the running order (Running in reverse) If I came last Then who was first We were found wanting Not what we want to find Putting on a brave face And pretending not to mind Caring is creepy And we’re running out of time Hating is easy When you’re spinning your line But it keeps getting harder The more you keep trying Accidentally told the truth In between all the lying All the dull lustre Losing it’s shine All that we could muster Was a whimper and a whine

Every Road (free) 05:49
Every Road Stroll down the avenue Walk the boulevard March in the streets And the promenade Traffic in the thoroughfare Range the interstate Cruising on the highway Drift the parade All you’ve really got to know Is that every road leads back home Yeah all you’ve really got to know Is that every road leads back home Driving on broadway Every row, lane and path Wandering the turnpike Roaming the bypass Travel every course Explore each route Crescents and cul-de-sacs An endless pursuit All you’ve really got to know Is that every road leads back home Yeah all you’ve really got to know Is that every road leads back home Blood on the tracks on the car stereo On the long winding road out of Kenepuru I’d just finished the Luminaries – finally – the night before As the song came on I said to you That the Evening Standard had compared the book To Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts You asked if that was a valid thing to say And I said I didn’t know But I took their point Noting the layers and complexities As I wondered aloud Is it more difficult to achieve in 5 short minutes or 800 long pages
