Ford’s Party

Pacific & Horizon
The new Hen House Studios
                       Michael C. Ford’s album release party
         Take it to Toledo
                         Whatever happened to
                                the orange groves
                                            Grandma
                                   Robby Krieger on guitar
                      Look each
                                     other
                                              between the
                                                                ears.

I’m just trying to reach a human!

With all this technologic biomorphic fiber optic equipment
you’d think it would make life easier. Think again,
instead they put you on hold for 20 minutes, force you
to talk to automated operators and the equipment is still broken,
the tech support team can’t help you they transfer you
to the next option where your put on hold again,
elevator music playin’, your still
waiting,
waiting,
waiting,
waiting
it’s almost rare to reach a human
in the age of telecommunication, we get used to conditioning
it’s like traffic, nothing ever moves as fast as advertised,
their trying to automate our lives taking out humans
but this technologic innovation only gets more frustrating,
more waiting, more calling, more conditioning,
more numeric valuing, more information, less humans.
I’m just trying to reach a human in the age of telecommunication
With all this talk about virtual bandwidth-
I just want some human assistance quickly
Quit it with the number keys and my social security
Number- I’m tired of punching numbers
Pressing pound and voicemail communication
I’m just trying to reach a human
It’s hard to reach a human in the age of telecommunication
I’m just trying to reach a human!

Graduation for my Interdisciplinary Master of Arts at Cal State LA was on Saturday. Eka with me after.

. AzuL Amaral had a great Father’s Day party. He took the black & white shot of the family. His studio space on East First in Boyle Heights is epic. This was a dynamite weekend.
