Grenadines: (Island 6.0)

~ still working on the book but the mp3s are available now at the Internet Archive:

or just search for island_6.0; some kind of weirdness at the
Archive now


a tedious and lengthy travel journal packed with helpful
information and absurd detail: http://bbrace.net/wordpress/

Global Islands Project -- ongoing series of multi-media pdf-ebooks/field-recordings
-- a pastoral, pictorial and phonic elicitation of island parameters.

Your world is based on mutual relief at your common corruption. Maybe some cultures
are based on even worse. But that wouldn't change the bad faith of it and as years
go by, you wake at night in terror of your whole life being an act of bad faith,
where everything is self-interest and nothing more, where every human interaction is
driven by a silent, even subconscious calculation of some ulterior motive, to the
point that a sea of bad faith has taken over your whole life, there's no small
island left from which you can even try to build a bridge of good faith, because
even that effort becomes suspect, even good faith is nothing but self-interested,
even altruism is nothing but solipsistic, even your professed agonizing right here
right now is nothing but a gesture, made to the conscience in order to assure it
that it exists.
