Sometimes…sum of us do some shit that…just…turns out however it does.

^Top Craziest Things Found on the Internet! Tosh.O Edition^

Sometimes…sum of us do some shit that…just…turns out however it does.

Wait…I already said that.

I must have insanity problems.

^Electric Explosion compilation 2016 – Electric Arc power light vol 2^

Sometimes…insanity problems are insane.

Wait…I already said that.

Wait…did I already said that? Or did you say that?

I can't remember.

Someone has them some mental issue problems or something.

Prolly on steroids.

Lot's of em.

I mean really…when you think about it…who is NOT on steroids AMIRITE?!?!??>?

^Top 5 Powerful Transformer Explosions^


So…now that we have established that you are insane of the “complete and total” variety…let’s move on to more important stuff K?

Today is the 17th of February 2017 in my neck of the woods, and supposedly, Venus is supposedly gonna be it’s brightest tonight. But I looked up some shiznit on The Webranet regarding this phenomenon…and it appears that the appearance of appearances may or may not be correct, as Venus is supposed to be at “magnum glow” for the next few nights. But I’ve been watching the thing for months, and it’s been bright as FUCK for a while now…but the thing that interests ME…is how weird it has started to look. Lotta weird shapes and stuff around the planet as it transverses the sky over the course of the evening as The Earth/Terra starts it’s rocking part of rockin and rollin back towards spring here in the Northern Hemisphere…and towards fall in the Southern Hemisphere.

Venus brightness peaks next few evenings

As I was looking for info on Venus…this little nugget just plopped into my field of vision, or “FOV” as it’s called in the trades, and I thought…”hmmm…”hell-resistant? Now what in the flying motherfucking FUCK!!!…is NOT…”hell-resistant?”…since we are gonna now talk about this apparently?

NASA develops new hell-resistant electronics for a mission to Venus

I bet the kids in school are gonna fucking LOVE that shit.

WHEELS ARE HEAVY!!!

Q: What about “wheels within wheels?” Are they heavy?

A: ?¿?

Q: What about…when they come off? Are they still heavy?

A: ó¿ó
^FLYING CAR WHEEL, WHEEL OF FORTUNE, CAR CRASH COMPILATION FEBRUARY 2017^

If you could choose between…

A: Being warned that you were about to get slapped and why.

B: Being slapped and then it was explained to you as to why after the slapping.

Q: Which would you choose?

A: ó¿ó

ME personally? I have to wonder how shit went from “whatever” to “slap” so fucking fast. Because now we are talking about rules and/or laws and punishment. Which means, that I have to learn, know, remember, and apply…all rules…at all times…forever. And I must do this, at all times, under all conditions and circumstances, in all situations…forever.

DIVERSITY!!! FUCK YEAH!!!

Send in the robots y0!
^Electric Explosion compilation 2016 – Electric Arc power light vol 3^


I guess it’s no fucking wonder that science and business is so fucking antsy to work themselves out of a job by automating anything and everything. I mean…watching these videos about infrastructure and all? I mean…yeah…who in the FUCK wants to maintain all that shit? What a fucking nightmare.

“If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it.”

I wonder if the above statement is still applicable to that Oroville Dam out in California?

^Pogo – Get Out…^

I have had a glimmer of awesomeness in my week. I’ve posted some of her videos before in my previous whatevers…but it appears that Luna Lee has been awarded a venue to perform in at Austin’s famous “South By Southwest” (SXSW) music festival. But she needs the cash. How fucking awesome would that be? This girl being able to play in, and cruise around, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s old stomping grounds.

You can check out her vids on YouTube.

Good stuff.

Great stuff…even.

^Send Luna to her SXSW showcase^

Now all we gotta do…is figure out how to get Pogo back into the United States so he can play SXSW someday.

^Pogo – Symphony #69^


I know, I know…you are prolly saying…

DUDE!!! THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT THAN SOME AUSSIE GETTING BANNED FROM THE UNITED STATES FOR 10 YEARS FOR NOT HAVING A WORK VISA!!!

Ok…no problem. You go worry about “the important shit” while I try and clean up the rest of this mess…k? I mean really y0. Have you ever thought that maybe cleaning up some of “the small shit”…just…might help us out with cleaning up some of “the big shit?” I mean hell…maybe all “the big shit” really is? Just a whole bunch of small shit.

Makes sense to me anyway.

The more people that have more time to focus on helping others, instead of having to focus time on helping themselves? Yeah…quite the untapped workforce there. Not that I’m some kind of godless commie pinko, or some gun totin’ nigger hatin’ racist fascist godless commie pinko…or anything even remotely like that. It just occurs to me that maybe…erm…we all seem to be in the same boat. It’s a diverse boat sure. But, that’s the flava.

EX: See video below. Fucking awesomeness.

As I suspected. We don’t like shit being taken away from us.

^Pogo Lost^


Have I ever mentioned that those apartments that we lived in for a coupla years seemed to have some major fucking issues with the infrastructure composing them AND surrounding them? Yeah…I had to ride my bicycle several miles to downtown to file a request for the city inspector(s) to come take a look at them, because they…erm…appear to have had some major issues.

Nevermind the wicked-assed storms that seemed to make the whole goddamn building we lived in rock and shake and wobble, even after the storms had long since passed.

And nevermind the severe soil erosion all around the complex inside and outside over the entire neighborhood that was/is build on the side of some hills with some pretty steep elevation changes.

And nevermind that there is a fucking elementary school that sits right on top of this mound of “prepared soil” that is eroding so fast, that groundwater is constantly seeping from the ground, and that there were several MAJOR water-main breaks/pipe leaks while we were there. But yeah. We moved outta there over a year and a half ago.

So we’re safe.

I still think about it quite a bit.

It eats at me.
^Walking On A Dream (Pogo edit)^

In apartments…where people are constantly moving in and moving out…

Q: What effect does that have on the building with respect to loads and loading and non-loads and unloading when people are moving in/moving out?

A: ?!?!?

Q: What about things like…oh…say…fire-sprinklers that are activated and drown certain 2nd and 1st story apartments that are below the 3rd floor apartment that was running for fucking HOURS?

A: SAY WUT?!?!?

Yeah…what affect does that have on like…the wood. Yeah…the interior wood that is covered by sheetrock that is then painted over…and over…and over…and over?

What about when the carpet is replaced?

Ever seen those “carpet stretchers” those guys use?

I wonder if that causes the plywood flooring to warp?

What about the tile/linoleum? Does that stuff have “sticky-stuff” on it that keeps it adhered to the floor?

What about…erm…the wiring?

Ever seen what GOBS of coaxial cable can do to a 2″ x 4″ stud over time?

Snap it like a toothpick.

Or…maybe just…warp the fuck out of it.

Q: I wonder if sheetrock…bends.

A: !!!???!!!
^Forget | Pogo^


Yep. No one wants to hear “the bad news”…and I don’t blame them. I don’t like hearing bad news. But when you literally see a concrete/cement roadway that is cracking so badly under the pressure of the moving soil around and underneath it…that you are able to see that one particular roadway is actually acting as a fucking battering-ram directly towards a low-lying area that contains a creek in which a shitload of storm drains and run-off runs into…and houses with real-live people living in them sits right…fucking…on top of that area? Yeah…it’s scary shit. But no one wants to listen. No one wants to help. I got the run-around from various city departments, then finally wound up at the department where the engineers who inspect apartments in that city were. I took them a list of shit that concerned me and filed a report/request to have the buildings re-inspected, then went to the records department and requested the previous 3 inspections that had been done at those apartments. They promised me those records in 60 days or less.

I never received them.

I did all of this in February of 2015.

/me shrugs
^Pogo presents Toyz Noize^

On the upside…the week that we were moving? Which was like July of 2015? Yeah…I saw a group of 4 people walking around the parking lot in suits/dresses. It was the building management company’s ownership and the building manager. I immediately assumed that someone had gotten the message…put on my shoes, and went down and asked them if the were looking at the way the buildings/infrastructure was shifting. They were a little “tight-lipped” about exactly what they were doing, but I attempted to point out of a few of the “glaring issues”…like the massive cracks in the concrete roadway and the leaning perimeter-fence. They were dismissive, thanked me for taking the time, and I went on my way.

Out particular building is/was a 3-story building at the bottom of the hill at the east-end of the complex.

3-story building.

12 apartments.

12 families.

12 stories.

I could tell you stories.

Wobbly ones.

Wiggly…even.

Nevermind all of the buildings and houses around that area.

OH! Did I mention that they had just done a shitload of work installing a miles-long walking trail to the west of us? Yeah, there’s a pond over there just to the north of the elementary school. And they just put a new bridge in to the north of that, and have done a shitload of highway work. Some huge creeks around that area, and they always flood when it rains. They did a lot of work on the water drainage in that area as well. I huge sloppy assed reservoir that feeds from The Trinity River just to the east of that. And when I say sloppy…I mean sloppy. The lake is actually pretty shallow, and the muddy assed bottom of the lake is prolly deeper than the lake itself.

Black Clay….Turns Grey…When Wet.

SLOPPY!!!
^Digitalism – Blitz^


I see all kinds of stuff.

Is it my fault that I have this ability?

Or your fault that you don’t.

We can learn all kinds of stuff when we want to.

And yes…there is all kinds of unpleasant stuff that we must sometimes wade through in order to find what we are looking for. Sometimes…we have to straddle the line. But that tends to be perspective.

What does that mean exactly?

Welp…I’ve often said that an innocent person can walk to the gallows guilt free.

You can accuse me, or anyone else for that matter…of anything you want. That doesn’t make it true.

Not even for you.
^Digitalism – The Pulse^

I only know that we are here…and it is now.

We do what we do…the best we can…and the future should care of itself just fine.

I mean afterall…isn’t that kinda the point?

A chance?

Probably.

Possibly.

I dunno.

I gots no answers.

I just work here.

The Unseen Synchro.

Or something.
