Why Josh Moore Should Be Frozen.

Kafka stated, "Man cannot live without a continuous confidence in something indestructible within himself."
I looked at the Larsen cartoon. It was about Thag signing his bio. He had been frozen for 10,000 years. Thag comes back from the dead. Thag is now famous.
My first thought was to write a windy treatise on why death is such a turn-on. Thag is just famous because he came back from the dead. Dead rock stars are famous because they go out in a decedent fashion. Michael Hutchence said, "I'm elegantly wasted."
“Imagine” if John Lennon could come back from the dead. He would be bigger then Jesus.
I was going to write about archetypes and universal need. After a bit, I thought why talk so grandiose? Why not talk about something far easier then that? And that's when I decided I'd write this essay on myself.
William Reid, of the Jesus and Mary Chain, once sang, "I want to die like Jesus, I want to die like JFK." I want to die exactly the same. Not now, I have things to do.
The ONLY thing that could crown dying like a decadent poet is being 'unfrozen.' I think I'm interesting enough to be a delightful tempest for some future generation.
It all reminds me of this Star Trek where they find several humans in cryogenics. They had been frozen centuries back. Dr. Crusher brings them back to life.
Wouldn't you want to party with those guys? None of them were really that especially interesting, but I'm sure that each one of them would have quite a bit to say.
Now you’re probably asking "What makes you so interesting?"
Well, I could start off with the knowledge of karma, dharma and sutra, life story and voyages, penchant for causing social trouble, or thousands of other unimportant details.
What really makes me that interesting is that I am able and willing to scream songs that go, "fuck you and your authority I have identity it is anarchy,” wearing a prom dress, fronting a big loud raucous punk band any day of the week.


I'm sure you've meet more then your fair share of booze and drug addicted mentally unstable twenty-three year olds. But c'mon, how many front a punk band and wear dresses for a joke? I must confess I didn't wear a dress at rehearsals this weekend, I just screamed and jumped around. The good news is the Salvation Army has a black prom dress with my name written all over it.
It's true; people usually can't stand the hard-core life style that long. Jello Biafara is fond of saying "Live fast, die young."
Between the drugs, the booze, the pills, the bipolar affective disorder, legal actions, acid flashbacks, riotous temperament, and general anarchy I figure I probably won't make till 28. Maybe I'll be famous by then.
You see, seeing Thag unfrozen gave me great hope. I'm obviously worthy of study for future generations, so what I'm hoping for is that I can be frozen shortly after overdosing on heroin on 28th birthday. That way I can be unfrozen, given some Narcan and start a new era of art and anarchy. If I overdose, I will be dead, so it's legal.
So as of today, I am starting the Josh Moore, legal defense and cryogenics foundation. This is all with the hope that I can be unfrozen someday and share my wisdom with countless others. If you'd like to make a contribution please contact me after class or email me at Joshuamichael90@hotmail.com
