from the House
nothing secret about the "house of XI" so much as unusual.
Our blood line (genetics) has a pre-disposition that allows us to
express our emotion way more than the average person does."
have super powers....
we don't have any superpowers it is just that things around us agree
with us...for instance, if one or two of us starts singing then
everything around starts to sing along...not always, but more often
than not. And if one is terribly upset then so is everything nearby,
so we can not argue or fight amongst ourselves - ever. We observe
seven Holy days (holidays) per year, the Equinoxes, the Solstices,
our Conception day, our Birth day, and a day dedicated to helping a
stranger (man or animal) whom we do not know and do not expect to
receive from again."
Where did the 'house of XI' come
guess that one is a family secret. But I can tell you that we fought
with our own and utterly wiped ourselves out long ago (War
Within), back before the days
of Nimrod and Gilgamesh... back when the earth was smaller and the
sky was filled with oceans. As the Argonauts traveled the planet,
DNA re-intermingling brought us back...like frosty the
snowman...except that we can still remember some things (before the
conception and birth of our present bodies), like eye witnesses.
Maybe that's why XIans are so emotionally intense, even when we're
dead and buried we are all still wide awake."
about that olde Recco®
Is it Magical...
"You just had to ask me that - didn't you. The best way I can
answer that is to tell you how we met...
I was at some one's house when some drunken a**hole kept trying to
play this guitar and each time he blew the riff he threw the guitar
across the room shouting that is why he bought it for ten dollars
and brought it to this one's party so that he could smash it to
pieces (like everything else in his life). One time I was in the
same room when he threw it hard against the wall. It made a noise
that shot threw me like someone had broken my ribs. I pounced on him
dragging him around shouting "it's still alive, you f'ing
bastard, it's still alive" as I shoved ten dollars into his
pockets and took the guitar. He destroyed it pretty badly. It can
never be repaired. So anyway, a few days later, I was
meditating and kind of humming and from across the room I could hear
the old Recco singing along. It was resonating chords and single
piercing harmonics in rhythmic melody with what I was humming and
singing. This was way more than just a guitar echoing and resonating
random noises, as all acoustic instruments do, and since it had only
five strings at the time, I leave it that way."
I really don't know what is meant by 'magical' but yes it seems
and yes, I know that sounds unbelievable."
Why does 'Children'
only perform at 'house of XI' events....
"That's an easy one.....the XIan muses were only intended to
enchant the 'Tribe of Love', their House, and their Blood
(families). If we were to perform for people in general the
emotional revelations that would occur would drive them mad. Imagine
having a full tank of gas, locked in overdrive, pedal to the metal,
but no steering wheel and no ability to disengage at will - it would
be like taking someone else's medicine - it will heal them, but it
might kill you."
