RED DOOR – # 14
“It could have happened.
It had to happen.
It happened earlier. Later.
Nearer. Farther off.
It happened, but not to you.
You were saved because you were the first.
You were saved because you were the last.
Alone. With others.
On the right. The left.
Because it was raining. Because of the shade.
Because the day was sunny.
You were in luck — there was a forest.
You were in luck — there were no trees.
You were in luck — a rake, a hook, a beam, a brake,
A jamb, a turn, a quarter-inch, an instant . . .
So you’re here? Still dizzy from
another dodge, close shave, reprieve?
One hole in the net and you slipped through?
I couldn’t be more shocked or
how your heart pounds inside me.”

“I’ve often thought that there isn’t any “I” at all; that we are simply the means of expression of something else; that when we think we are ourselves, we are simply the victims of a delusion.”
―A. Crowley. (Diary of a Drug Fiend).
RED DOOR MAGAZINE – 12th ISSUE – March, 2013
We are all dead. The sun has set one time on our surprised corpses and our tired old selves have disintegrated. These are new eyes that feast on this world for the first time. The city appears to us strange, like a confused animal. Upon further inspection we see that it is sick. It is swarmed by creatures eating away at it’s flesh. It is caught in a net of electric wires and pipes and screws and such a tangled mess.
Our first instinct is to save it. The new mind clinging to the past. Over time, the sick city and it’s inhabitants fade from our thoughts. They are no different than the fish in the sea, following the currents toward their end.
Death and destruction are constant. All over.
We are alive. We are reborn. Re-risen. We awaken with a new mind and a full heart. That is all. Always as strangers far away from home. There is no home. There is nothing.
Keep on truckin’!

|The Texas Firehouse started seven years ago when Wyatt Nash, Robert Deeds, Ken Wiatrek, Seth Mittag and Jeff Thompson took over the building and converted it into an exciting live/work space in Long Island City, Queens. Over the years they have put on art exhibits, music shows, iron pours, video shoots etc.
It was the birthplace of Terrible Eagle, Eyestek and a temporary home to Indian Jewelry. Current home to The Electric Set, ahem.
There was so much done and still so much more to do. In the end our landlord, who is a cunt, inherited the property when the original owner died. Now she is getting married to a guy, who is a twat, that thinks he can get real rich in the New York real estate game. Fuck them both and the games they play. As for us, our games continue in new and exciting ways. We will host a party or two before the last day and of course there will be a garage sale – everything must go. Holla for more details.
Dates: Jan 19-21st, Garage Sale
Last Show: Jan 26th.
more updates coming soon. as well as a new full year of content.
