FREDDIE GIBBS

Born June 14, 1982 (age 36)
Gary, Indiana, U.S.

We are now announcing only the second time we have named a living person for our “Time Machine Poet of the Week” tribute.  Hailing from the streets of Gary, Indiana; Freddie Gibbs has created his own stylized flow, equipped with story-telling that exhibits the essence of legends such as Tupac and Scarface.  I was introduced to Gibbs in 2014; I first heard his collaboration with Joey Bada$$ “Carry On” and then listened to the masterpiece and possibly his best album “Piñataproduced by Madlib.

Songs like “White Range” and “BFK” bring forth a manifestation of Tony Montana and the Vice City aura that’s rare to capture in 2018.  He is easily in the top 5 rappers alive and that’s if he’s not already the best hip-hop artist producing music at-the-moment.  With the release of 2018’s self-titled album “Freddie” and his on-going popularity – his demand is climbing.  Freddie Gibbs is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

Wolfman Jack

TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK

Wolfman Jack

wolfman-jack-getty-1600x500.00_00_00_00.Still001

Born Robert Weston Smith
January 21, 1938
New York City, U.S.
Died July 1, 1995 (aged 57)
Belvidere, North Carolina, U.S.

Although I didn’t grow up in the realm of Wolfman Jack; I remember DJ Cousin Brucie replaying snippets of Wolfman Jack on Sirius XM satellite radio on the ’60s on 6.  His humor and voice electrified the music that followed, and his popularity rose to heights unseen before with a Disc jockey.

Born in Brooklyn, January 21, 1938, he would later find his passion in radio as a Disc jockey in 1962-1964 for Inter-American Radio and gained mainstream status via XHRF-FM radio located in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, which had the strongest radio frequency – able to broadcast to California and most of the United States.  His admiration for the Blues and Rock n Roll captivated black musicians into the ears of white school students, who otherwise had no access to the tunes.

He would have a small part in the 1973 film American Graffiti, finally allowing his fans a face to the Wolfman’s voice. Wolfman Jack died of a heart attack on July 1, 1995 at the age of 57.  Wolfman Jack is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

Door ENTRANCE (AUTOMATIC WRITING)

enter

Door ENTRANCE.

And she’s stationary waiting for the invitation to extend

And she walked with scarlet cloth, through the hallway of records

SILENCE.

Jung archetypes adorn asterisks gently on rooftops

Freudian textures teaching Tamas

TRAIT.

Mirror gazing projects her to a conscious reflection

Reflection of consciousness projects her onto a mirror

TWO.

And she’s tempted by the demeanor of a locust

And she’s Illuminated from the children of harlotry, free from the text

FREEDOM.

This is official PROJECT ASTRAL poetry

DOOR EXIT (AUTOMATIC WRITING)

exxxit-00_00_00_00-still001

Door EXIT.

And she’s in the next room staring through a stained glass window

And the paint is peeling from the frame between here and somewhere

STATIONARY.

Parallel pyramids project her shadow on mute

Euclid angles architect antidotes of a plane laced with pores

FACE.

Pineal paths drift her along a Phatnitic water

Arrayed asterisks allude elements of wilderness on horseback

FLASHING.

And she carried purple and scarlet cloth written in mystery

And she rose from the children of harlotry, indebted to the text

JUDGEMENT.

This is official PROJECT ASTRAL poetry

NEIL YOUNG

Born November 12, 1945 (age 72)
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Neil Young is a Canadian poet/musician who has contributed music that embodies the everyday struggle of man and provides a depth of consciousness that hasn’t been duplicated.  Under-appreciated as a guitarist, Young’s possession of the six-string can be heard in songs such as “Hurricane” and “Down By The River”.  The 1971 BBC Live concert where Neil performed a timeless set of songs; this is personally one of the best acoustic sessions I’ve heard. 

He has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, once as an individual and as a band member of Buffalo Springfield, along with Richard Furay, and Stephen Stills who also collaborated with Neil in the super-group, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Neil Young is Project Astrals’ first TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK who’s still in this physical world.
