Free Gucci Man Cruise 740 is a reflective piece that serves as an activity log for a particularly transformative and at times difficult 6 month period following the release of '18-23-20-28-27, emergency stop knob'. Free Gucci Man Cruise 740 was originally intended to be a challenging 3 hour noise document, featuring a concept derived from "Cruising 740". In December of 2013, the decision was made that this project would demonstrate it's point more coherently and efficiently if it were presented in it's at-the-time current format, many thematic concepts were dropped and subsequently many new concepts emerged. "Free Gucci Man(e)" is multi-referential, with it's origins referencing a desire to transcend current paradigms and societal structures; a prayer to free the human species from it's addiction to the long process of becoming God. A separation from Nature requiring a destruction of self in order to possess omnipotence.
This chapter of the diary is over. The ideas contained within this document will never be revisited or reinterpreted. POWER AFFIRMATIONS are coming this summer. I love you. Thank you for listening. Be honest to yourself and others. Have unlimited respect for everyone and everything, including yourself. Treat plants and animals as equals. Consociate rather than expropriate.
