ShellFootMouthFootShellMouthFootMouthFootShellA sequence or a list to make it more manageable. I took a walk and adjusted my filter, because the question at hand is one of scale and order. I'm suggesting voluntary human extinction, but I'm still very concerned with the present. New organs seen through webbed eyes. Moon snails reproduce by filtering water and sand through their aquiferous system, "a large and expansible system of interconnected lacunae or sinuses that branch to fill the entire portions of the foot." As it passes through the aquiferous system, the sand is mixed with fertilized eggs and an adhesive mucus and exuded through innumerable pores in the foot, which has been expanded to cover all but the very top of the snail's hard outer shell. The result is a very thin and smooth, collar-shaped form of pregnant sand, both a nursery for spawn and an autonomous self-representation by the snail, which burrows out from under when casting is finished. Hatching eggs do not mutilate the collar, which retains its glassy contour until it is crushed or dries up out of water.A diagram is a God's plan, but I can adjust the steps. A diagram of each step. A list of diagrams written in calligraphic script on nice paper. Underwater particulate beam.A filter to act as a harness for attractive forces,In the sun-oven, just cooking.

Marshstepper is Jes Barnett (b. 1988) and Nick Nappa (b.1988), two members of Ascetic House, whose practice focuses on the validity of the objet petit-a, equal parts performance and music, equal parts absurd and comedic, equal parts vile and beautiful. Marshstepper managed to land on Regis and Silent Servant's Downwards America stable-a division of the Downwards industry reserved for more experimental, electro-acoustic and electro-punk. Their live performance draws inspiration from traditions of the past, ala the Panic Movement, La Fura dels Baus, and Sonic Arts Union.

Virginia raised rapper Yung Bruh ("Tracy" b. 1995) has gained a large fan base in the underground rap scene. With a proclivity for deleting music and changing his internet personas, Yung Bruh keeps his fans actively following him.

It is not uncommon for the artist to release a poppy 80's inspired dance tracks like "Jennifer on the Dancefloor Tonight" and sorrowful tracks like "Vampire in the Moonlight Countin Money Up" within days of each other. Such shifts in genre and style add to the artist's unpredictability and stem from the disparate aspects of the artist's lived experiences.
