About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

Peter Murphy - 2009 Tour Dates (2 NYC shows) ++ SXSW, Trent Reznor, and... Chase Bank videos

Peter Murphy

Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy made a rare appearance at Austin's South By Southwest festival today (March 19, 2009), coming all the way from his adopted home in Turkey to perform for a packed house at Elysium.

Backed by a four-piece band, the goth legend performed several songs from his extensive solo catalogue and pranced around the stage dramatically throughout the 45-minute set.

In between songs, Murphy bantered with the crowd and delivered a message to any musicians in the room. "This is about music, not radio friendliness," he said. "The artist has more power than anybody. The artists must know that they are the centre of it."

At one point, Murphy even handed his microphone to audience members who proceeded to ask him questions. When a woman asked how it felt to reunite with Bauhaus recently, Murphy said, "Bauhaus are very nice chaps but they are exhausting!"

Later in the evening, a man in the crowd shouted, "We fucking love you, Peter!"

"I'm sure you just want to enter my body," quipped Murphy in response, "which is not love." [NME]

Murphy is coming back to the US for solo shows this summer. That tour includes a two-show NYC run at the Highline Ballroom in July. Tickets for the Monday, July 6th andTuesday, July 7th shows are on sale.

If Murphy's gigs this summer are anything like his SXSW set, the music will be mainly focused on material from his upcoming album. Speculation about that album...

[Peter Murphy's forthcoming] album may feature production fromTrent Reznor of NIN and feature Peter's version of the track "Warm Leatherette," which they have been performing live together... [Wikipedia]
Murphy sang with Reznor on the NIN song "Reptile" in Atlantic City last year. The pair are no strangers to collaboration. In 2006, while on the road together with their respective bands, Reznor and Murphy recorded live, in-studio versions of a number of tracks, including "Warm Leatherette" and "Reptile." Videos of those, videos from Peter Murphy's SXSW set, the Chase Bank commercial featuring Myrphy's voice and all known tour dates, below...
