Every jellyfish encounters the doldrums. There you are floating along, floating along, seemingly going nowhere. It's as if you're heading down the same road forever, the scenery never changing. Even the greatest efforts to advance or attain some improved vantage point produce no results.
Like Achilles chasing the tortoise, the distance to your goal keeps getting smaller, but only an infinity of steps will get you there. The addict knows the hopelessness of this paradox only too well. Her eyes can see that light at the end of the tunnel, but her brain paralyzes her somewhere in the middle, again and again and again.
Blues master and surrealist, Champion Jack Dupree, provides a strangely accurate depiction of the condition of endless futile pursuit in this week's song -- a favorite of our jellyfish.

About the Curator - AK Rockefeller
AK Rockefeller is the avatar-in-chief of Identity Transduction Systems (ITS). AK leads the ITS team of artists, musicians and activists who produce multimedia art & propaganda for important human rights causes. AK is the youngest son of Michael Rockefeller who went missing off the coast of West Papua in 1961. Much like most other public figures and celebrities, AK exists in realm between reality and fiction. His identity represents an challenge to the nature and concept of the 'public persona' in today's reality.
The activities of AK Rockefeller and ITS constitute an ongoing psychological operation against the warmongering capitalist status quo. By taking the Rockefeller name and manipulating the symbols of power, AK creates a real fictional alternative to the fake populist movements of today quietly serving the interests of existing elites.
