I’ve been seeing all, I’ve been seeing your soul
Give me things that I’ve wanted to know

My inspiration for Rasl

bonecomic:

Science fiction and noir. RASL came out of my love for these genres. Some of my favorite authors are Arthur C. Clarke, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. I also watch a lot of noir film classics like The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep. - Jeff Smith

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - I See a Darkness

Well you’re my friend
(It’s what you told me)
And can you see
(What’s inside of me)
Many times
We’ve been out drinking
And many times
We’ve shared our thoughts
But did you ever, ever notice
The kind of thoughts I got
Well you know I have a love
A love for everyone I know
And you know I have a drive
To live I won’t let go
But can you see it’s opposition
Comes a-rising up sometimes
That it’s dreadful and position
Comes blacking in my mind

And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And did you know how much I love you
Is a hope that somehow you you
Can save me from this darkness

Well I hope that someday, buddy
We have peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives
That we can stop our whoring
And pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
This isn’t all I see

Oh no I see a darkness
Oh no I see a darkness
Oh no I see a darkness
Oh no I see a darkness
And did you know how much I love you
Is a hope that somehow you you
Can save me from this darkness

Weight Of Love - The Black Keys

I used to think, darlin’, you never did nothin’
But you were always up to somethin’
Always had a run in, yeah
I got to think those days are comin’ to get ya
Now no body want to protect yah
They only want to forget yah

You’ll be on my mind
Don’t give yourself away
To the weight of love
You’ll be on your side
Don’t give yourself away
The weight of, weight of love

Dance all night cause people, they don’t wanna be lonely
Never wanna be lonely

Never ever had a pure love
And never no cure from

Don’t give yourself away
To the weight of love
You’ll be on your side
Don’t give yourself away
The weight of, weight of love

Blue Foundation - Bonfires
I was given wine
We’re feeling okay
And quite all right
You wash my tears away
And make me wanna stay
And bonfires lit up the shores

(Wa fa fa-wey)
To go beside you
Is where I want to be
(Wa fa fa-wey)
To laugh, to love

Days of roses and wine
Drifting astray
With your hand in mine
You stroke my fears away
And make me wanna stay
And bonfires lit up the shores

(Wa fa fa-wey)
To go beside you
Is where I want to be
(Wa fa fa-wey)
To laugh, to love

(Wa fa fa-wey)
Where to go and hide?
We’re going to the sea
(Wa fa fa-wey)
To laugh, to love

And this is how it went;
I am here to stay
Roaring with the wind
There’s life within

This is what I give
A circle is complete
Another circle spins
There’s life within
Within

Come rain come on and rain on me
wash away this pain in me
I see the days disdain of me
The night is where I ought to be

And I know you’re gonna pray for me
And I know you’re gonna wait for me
Until I won’t be there to haunt our hearts no more

The paper’s ripped and torn
You paint your fence and mow your lawn
No one can mend this damage done
I packed my bags and I’ll be gone

And I know you’re gonna pray for me
And I know you’re gonna wait for me
Until I won’t be there to haunt our hearts no more

The Curse of Smart People

But it’s not perfect. Smart people have a problem, especially (although not only) when you put them in large groups. That problem is an ability to convincingly rationalize nearly anything.

FINDER

‘Ab origine’ is a pre-Roman term meaning ‘original inhabitants.’ It means, essentially, someone who’s been in a place since the earliest time. It generally refers to people who lived close to the earth, or whose ancestors did. People travel, people settle; people look at each other and embrace or else fight. People see kin; people see enemies. Push and shove over territory may not be as old as the hills, but it is as old as King Of The Mountain. Aboriginal science fiction deals with alien societies. FINDER’s aliens are all one family, but their coming to understand that isn’t going to come easily.

Funeral Customs: Chapter IV: Wakes, Mutes, Wailers, Sin-Eating, Totemism, Death-Taxes

A less known but even more remarkable functionary, whose professional services were once considered necessary to the dead, is the sin-eater. Savage tribes have been known to slaughter an animal on the grave, in the belief that it would take upon itself the sins of the dead. In the same manner, it was the province of the human scapegoat to take upon himself the moral trespasses of his client—and whatever the consequences might be in the after life—in return for a miserable fee and a scanty meal. That such a creature should be unearthed from a remote period of pagan history would be surprising enough, but to find reliable evidence of his existence in the British Isles a hundred years ago is surely very much more remarkable.

Professor Evans of the Presbyterian College, Carmarthen, actually saw a sin-eater about the year 1825, who was then living near Llanwenog, Cardiganshire. Abhorred by the superstitious villagers as a thing unclean, the sin-eater cut himself off from all social intercourse with his fellow creatures by reason of the life he had chosen; he lived as a rule in a remote place by himself, and those who chanced to meet him avoided him as they would a leper. This unfortunate was held to be the associate of evil spirits, and given to witchcraft, incantations and unholy practices; only when a death took place did they seek him out, and when his purpose was accomplished they burned the wooden bowl and platter from which he had eaten the food handed across, or placed on the corpse for his consumption.

Howlett mentions sin-eating as an old custom in Hereford, and thus describes the practice: “The corpse being taken out of the house, and laid on a bier, a loaf of bread was given to the sin-eater over the corpse, also a maga-bowl of maple, full of beer. These consumed, a fee of sixpence was given him for the consideration of his taking upon himself the sins of the deceased, who, thus freed, would not walk after death.” He suggests the connection between the sin-eater and the Jewish scapegoat of the old Testament.
