    EIS 006 Sesquipedalian
    A story of hustles and gambles within lowlife culture.

    Charles Farrell could be labeled a number of things: pianist, writer, boxing manager, and hustler. As a teenager, Farrell lived in the streets of Boston, playing piano in mafia-owned clubs. With a love for boxing, he started gambling on high-profile matches while also managing fighters. He fixed an array of professional fights by using code-talk with trainers, foolproof matchmaking, and buying referees and judges. In this story, the highs and lows of gangster culture are explored as Charles Farrell describes the ease of taking advantage of society’s vulnerable parts. 

    Sesquipedalian is a collaboration between Everything Is Stories and Love and Radio

    Everything is Stories is produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.

    Love and Radio is produced by Brendan Baker and Nick van der Kolk.

    Inside The Mind Of



    My only advice to the common, real-life peer or passerby, is to be a fearless, cavalier drunk -- stay adventurous; otherwise you'll spend your nights with the spins and then vomit.

    Also, don't ever commit suicide.

    “I was drawn to all the wrong things: I liked to drink, I was lazy, I didn’t have a god, politics, ideas, ideals. I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. I didn’t make for an interesting person. I didn’t want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone. On the other hand, when I got drunk I screamed, went crazy, got all out of hand. One kind of behavior didn’t fit the other. I didn’t care.” -- charles bukowski

    "Pussywillow & Honeysuckle"

    I would love

    to slit my

    own throat

    but that's a

    guilt you wear

    heavy like a

    full coat

    and Hell,


    Hell is

    very fucking hot.

    "Rasputin's Beard"





    Her blond relentless

    shook under the light

    dropped savage and

    swung through the smoke

    we pelted,

    jaws gaped morose

    heaving jaws

    Our blood was very... loose.

    I'd know fright


    alien tension,

    moonlight pawed us

    through the gravy window

    our fingers, greasy biscuits

    We pawed back,


    and our pandering

    was bloated,

    Her eyes - something - already


    I'd gone copper,

    distressed to the nerves,

    frayed, deep cosmic energies


    I was exhausted.

    Rasputin's beard.

    I looked at her,

    her crown, crooked


    as a Reaper pulled a string

    to raise her face from the grave,

    some parasitic,

    poltergeist marionette.

    I wanted to fuck her,

    I wanted to fuck her because I loved her,

    but I loved her despite

    not knowing how to love at all.

    So I fucked her.

    "The Savage"

    She held me

    painfully responsible

    for the birth

    of our second son

    The Savage.

    "The Sleeper Hold"

    when you catch me

    staring at your knees

    like I have

    no idea

    who you are anymore

    just please understand

    I'm tired.


    Constance treaded lightly

    goose steps

    goose pimples

    native graves

    told her so.

    "Some Response"


    you're ferocious,"

    said the snake

    crossing his legs.

    "how horny are you now?"

    breathing hard

    as a rock on valentine's day.

    codeine, "castle"
    tim hecker, "stab variation"
    sun city girls, "black orchid

    Mix 138: Oddelisk

    And a little backstory:

    I was approached by a security guard named Courtney at the museum I work at. I never learned his last name. After a couple conversations about playing music, he asked me to digitally transfer five 1/4" reel-to-reel tapes he'd been storing since the 70s. They reeked of cigarettes, were visibly warped and had never been listened to since their recording. Apparently, the tapes document a studio session from 1974, although he has no recollection of the group's name or the session taking place (a few stories later, it was clear this session was heavily influenced by drugs). During my correspondence with Courtney, Mike Kelley's traveling retrospective was exhibited at our museum. Borrowing my favorite title of the show, taken from Kelley's "Kandor" series, "Oddelisk" became an unpredictable research and editing project, in hopes to share a set of lost live recordings that could never have been heard if it weren't for our random interactions. Since completing the project, Courtney has been transferred out of the museum.
