Dear Reader, a new missive from The Okie Devil has arrived…
*No shit, Clicky! I had one of those when I was a little kid!*
*Damn! I could really go for a double cheeseburger right now… /salivates… Or a Whopper! …/drools…*
… Enjoy Cade’s missive, Dear Reader. I’m off for to get something to eat. See you at the bottom ❤
Let’s see how and where this goes.
I’ve grown fat, out-of-shape, out-of-practice, disconnected, irrelevant, and prolly a bunch of other bad stuff too.
Let’s see how and where this goes.
^Cocteau Twins ~ Fotzepolitic^
I wonder where we learn how to solve problems? Any place or places we might think of as a model? I saw a Tweet yesterday where someone was apparently wishing that…
“all Trump supporters were six feet in the ground”
…whatever that means. I just tried to find said Tweet, but I could not. Maybe they deleted it. Anyway…yeah…
Q: How do we learn, and from where do we learn it?
A: Wherever we do?
So…how do we learn? Or is that important at all? Are we too focused on where we learn it from? Don’t think so? Me either.
Q: Can you name the top 10 colleges/universities you want/wanted to go to and/or that you would send your children to and/or would recommend to another to send their children to?
A: What am I saying here? You wouldn't "send" your children anywhere. You'd let them choose. Right? I mean, it's their life...ain't it?
Hands on here, hands off there.
Hands on there, hands off here.
Time can fuck with your head if you let it.

Anyone else ever get "rainbow vision"?
I used to get it all the time when I was a kid. Lots of times this would happen around the time that I was having a migraine. And I used to have some doozy migraine headaches. But sometimes, this “rainbow vision” would just…happen, with no other phenomena nor more relatable states to attach it to as a symptom. My parents always told me…
“you’re just seeing things!”
…which tended to make the fact that “I was seeing things”…worse. It was scary.
Sometimes the rainbows would be so bad that I couldn’t see at all. I mean, I could see the rainbows, but they so filled my vision that the rainbows were all I could see. Everything else was just…silhouettes…shadows…penciled outlines…floating or darting in a sea of white. These rainbows were crazy too. All kinds of crazy shapes, all intermingled and intermingling. Flowing. Moving. Not pulsing per se, although they did sometimes have flickers or waggles trailing or leading a directional change.
Why do I mention this? Well…it started happening again recently. Kinda scared me a bit a coupla nights ago, because it go so bad…I couldn’t see. I’d say that it concerned me more than scared me, but there’s a coupla reasons for that.
1) It’s happened before/I have experience with both
A) the experience of it, and
B) the experiencing of it, and
C) the experience of experiencing it, and
D) the experience of trying to relate it to another/others who cannot relate to it, and possibly even don’t want to relate to it due to all kinds of mitigating factors.
2) I’ve had so many issues over the last 10 years that pretty much anything and/or everything that happens? Yep, doesn’t surprise me much at all.
^Fotzepolitic – Majestic Masses^
I’ve not thought of it in a long time. No reason to. It stopped happening, and it happened so long ago, under circumstances that are also long since gone-ish. So…why is it suddenly happening again?
They've got this thing called "The Internet" these days!!!
LET’S CHECK IT OUT!!!
WOAH!! Thank God for Google suggestions, eh? This just came up, while using the Google Search Box to format some text/remove the formatting of text, and it suggested something I wouldn’t have thought of.
So…pretty sure I’m not pregnant. Nor do I appear to be in any immediate danger of a situation developing that could cause me concern over becoming pregnant.
I could go for some sweaty dehydrating activities, but that could result in pregnancy…so I better take a rain-check.
(ba da ching)
Um…where was I? Oh yeah…here alone…typing. I better go jerk-off real quick…BRB.
^Dawn of the Great Eastern Sun – COURSE OF EMPIRE^
Dehydration. Is that a “system-wide” issue? Or can it be localized? I mean…if you sit on your foot, or lean on your arm, shit goes numb, right? So…can we assume that Ergonomics might be of interest here? Maybe even Kinesiology? That means engineering.
I wonder who is driving this train?
^Course of Empire – Automatic Writing #17^
Wait a fucking SECOND here…
“This is generally a normal process, although it may happen abnormally early in cases of high nearsightedness or trauma.”
Generally a normal process results in something that is labeled as “distorted”? You just nullified growth and/or change…
Or am I overreacting?
Being unreasonably passionate, and being that we are on the subject…
Since when is General Lee considered normal?
I thought he was an evil racist pig, in an evil racist empire, doing evil racist things, in an EVIL RACIST world?
I express, therefore, I clam.

Google Search = Why do people in england not like francis drake?
So…not much there other than…
“He began his career as a slave trader”
…and I don’t think that’s it, so let’s onward.
“Edmund Drake was a Protestant”
…surely THAT can’t be it. Things keep pointing towards a certain direction tho. That “Protestant” kinda helps with the compass in that regard.
So…they put him in his armor, placed the whole kit and kaboodle in a lead lined coffin, buried him at sea, and…
divers and explorers are,
and have been,
looking for it ever since?
That gets me to thinking about geometry a bit, and how “we in our modern world” sometimes use these shapes.
EX: Today, I saw a Tweet about some new technology that allows for veins to be found using Infrared Light. Odd that when I clicked the “watch this video on YouTube” link, it didn’t take me to that particular video, and the video was nowhere to be found on that channel. So, I searched Google for it.
Interesting note: That channel on YouTube? It’s called…Mashable.
^VeinViewer IV Video^
So Roob just posted some new shiznit, and it’s a good thing that she did. I might have gotten off-track otherwise. Plus, all this bullshit is giving me a motherfucking headache.
“Wrap the emerging end of the worm around a stick and slowly pull it out. 3,500 years later, this remains the standard treatment.”
There’s more to this. Faint and distant, but also clear in many ways. I don’t know if that makes sense to you, but it does to me. Prolly something that I mentioned to Roob recently about…
“The gods burrowing their way through time”
…is ringing some bells. And what I meant by that was time itself. Yeah…that time.
The time that is time and makes time. Not that any alarm bells are ringing nor should they be. But yes, there is an ominous tone in there. Someone needs help. Someone needs help from us, and we aren’t giving it. Could be a number of reasons for this, and some grace may lay within the fact that, should God/the gods exist, they prolly are quite patient.
Until they aren't anymore.
But, what the fuck do I know. Meh.
^The Prodigy – Jericho^
That does get me to thinking a bit about something tho. Were “Doomsday” real, would we be disappointed were it to not to appear?
DATE WITH DOOMSDAY = RESCHEDULED!!!
I guess that’s why I kinda think that “the countdown clock” is always at zero(0). Always has been, always will be. But why wouldn’t it be? That’s where we’re headed…right? So…that’s all that matters. Some seem to think that way all the time…so let’s take that thought a step further.
"The countdown clock" is always at one(1).
I personally keep mine at 1-0-1. A countdown will always start to count up again. Unless time stops completely. Which…yeah…that’s really what happens at zero(0) and is good reason to stay away from it. And I don’t use “it” lightly there. In my mind, “it” is the simultaneousness of end and/or beginning, depending on which end you are currently looking at, for, or chasing for whatever reason. If you start to get your head wrapped around it, they are both the same thing at the same time? Yeah…that’s why you have no clue what in the fuck you are looking at.
Q: What have we forgotten?
A1: Time A2: Observer(s)
That means perspective. Which means perspectives. I mean, you’re intending on sharing what you find…right?
Find the beginning, and you will find the end.
Find the end? Welllllll…ya gotta keep in mind where we are in time. We’re neither here nor there. We’re right in the big middle of both. If you also keep in mind that I personally am thinking about this shit from more of a scientific viewpoint, with respect to time and times and less of a religious manner of thinking. I dunno…I’ve got nothing to sell here. Make up your own fucking mind.
^The Chemical Brothers – Go^
HOLY SHIT!!! A QUESTION VIA THE WHATEVER HOWEVER HOTLINE!!!
Q: Cade, what exactly do you mean by “the gods burrowing through time”? It sounds insulting.
A: WOAH FUCKING NELLY!!! A question AND an observation!!!
That’s a first. But lemme get on with this…if “the micro” is unimportant…why are we tinkering there? EVERYTHING is important in some way shape or form, otherwise, it wouldn’t be here.
WOAH!!! A SECOND QUESTION!!!
Q: Cade, what if something is “here”, just to give us something to do?
A: Well, if you think in less singular terms in that regard, maybe that will be indicative of where we sometimes fail, and where we sometime succeed.
Gotta keep times in mind here. Just because something “is gone” doesn’t mean that it is gone, nor gone forever. I mean, you remember it…right? Prolly others do to? Prolly been some hen-scratching etched out here and there about whatever it is? Maybe this is why “book burnings” are so popular sometimes. We don’t care what it is, we just want it motherfucking out of our heads.
^Junkie XL, Elvis Presley – A Little Less Conversation (Elvis vs JXL)^
For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
It’s raining here. Been raining most of the day. The thunder started only a few minutes ago.
A bit early perhaps…but…meh. The Christmas decorations will start appearing in stores very soon.
^Cocteau Twins – Winter Wonderland (New Video)^
I dunno mangs and mangettes…this shit is confusing. Especially when people seem to be crossing this and that and everything else, which is understandable, and certainly much more understandable than when it’s opposite show’s its face. Yeah, those who try and unwind the winders. I mean, hell, I even understand that.
What I don’t understand? The violence. The force.
But I even understand that.
Tho’ we are talking here…aren’t we? We’re not out marching in the streets en masse to demand this or demand that…are we? Can you unmix mixed paint(s)? Can you undraw a portrait? Can you unflow a river or unfill a sea? Can you unbreathe a breath or unbeat a heartbeat? See how easy it is to start to snake down the path of “ways to overcome via any and all means”? You can kill, you can dam, you can drain, you can burn, and you can prohibit, but on the whole, what have you done?
Only you can answers these questions. We all have dark spaces. Irrespective of whether or not we should have these spaces? They’re there. The light that illuminates them will dim, will darken, and will eventually cease.
I work well in the dark.
Then what’s with the light?
^Elvis Presley – Rubberneckin’ (Official Music Video)^
Lessee…where was I…oh yeah…trying to figure out why my skin falls off by the bucket-load. But equally interesting is why it didn’t fall of for long periods of my life. Oh yeah…shampoos and soaps prolly had something to do with keeping that shit under control. Cause if there’s anything that needs to be under control, it’s us.
Or something. I dunno what that means either.
But yeah, I am and have been thinking about the cost of prohibiting our bodies from trying to do what they’re trying to do. I mean…you really don’t expect the power grid to be here years from now do you? Certainly not as it exists today. We’re getting something wrong somewhere. So where is it? Lurking in the realms of the “negligible”? That cannot be. Anything you can see or comprehend cannot be negligible…can it?
Which, speaking of can it and canning it, I mentioned something on my own blog recently about canning, and that got me to thinking about standards and standardizations, which got me to thinking about…wait a second here….surely this industrialization shit can’t last much longer…can it?
har har har
^David Bowie ~ Fame 1975 Disco Purrfection Version^
What I was thinking about specifically, was milk. We put a lot of pressure on these dairy-cows to produce a lot of milk. That got me to thinking about fats and oils, cold-pressing, friction and heat, which got me to thinking about these vacuum systems that we use to “harvest” the milk from these cows. Surely that can’t be good. All those rapid pressure changes, over and over, day after day? There HAS to be some ergonomics types of shit going on there that we’ve not previously considered.
“If you keep picking at that, it’s never gonna heal.”
^Cocteau Twins – How to Bring a Blush to the Snow^
This got me to thinking about bras, which got me to thinking about boobies, and I went and jerked-off while thinking of boobies. I then got to thinking about boo bees, and got to thinking about heat and temperature regulation “at room temperature”, which, for us, is 98.6°F – if I am doing my calculations correctly – so that got me to thinking about hormone production. But I keep…fucking…winding-up back at…is steel.
Namely, stainless steel.
This shit don’t breathe well, and certainly not easily, nor is it as easy to clean as its name suggests. So…with that in mind, and considering some of its properties, why WOULDN’T stainless steel be a motherfucking magnet for all kinds of microbial life? Now…if that don’t get you to thinking about shape and shapes, I dunno what will. So let’s talk rabbits, and chasing them.
If you have a shotgun, you don’t need to chase rabbits.
Mystery = SOLVED! Next!
^COCTEAU TWINS Frou – frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires^
What does steel contain?
Iron, and lots of it.
Science tells us that “heavy shit” can only be produced in stars since it requires a fuckton of pressure to create these elements. O RLY?!?!?
Then what in the FUCK is it doing here?
Oh…coalescing dust from exploded stars? Um…you are really gonna try and get me to sign off on, a star that is traveling God-knows how fast through our own galaxy, explodes at God-only knows what kinds of velocities…and yet…this shit somehow just…hangs around the point of nova? And more than that…the shit hangs around so fucking long, that it re-coalesces and does it again?
What have we omitted?
Those that don’t. I mean, if we are plummeting through space, is it any wonder why someone might be able to see how a star could collect fucktons of “fuel” over trillions of years without missing a beat, nor really even losing any mass? Maybe it’s the particular trajectory and path that it is on that makes these types of stars so “special” in the way that we like to think about things. Maybe there’s an impeller and propeller type of dynamic that sometimes happens due to…oh say…relative proximation of forms and bodies containing…oh…something like…forms and bodies.
Q: Will that maybe help you with finding “earth-like” planets in your search and searches?
A: I dunno either.
Just a suggestion.

HEY!!! I LIKE RAMBLING!!! CREATES HOLES IN MY GAPS IN THINKING!!!
So shutup or something 😛
Where was I…OH! I was in the zone.
(ba da ching)
There was a story that I stumbled across recently that had an image of a water-droplet hovering a needle…while in space…at the ISS. So that got me to thinking about its relative distance to and from Earth/Terra. That got me to thinking about…um…high explosives. Yeah…up in the kiloton and megaton range, and “atmospheric” testing.
Q: Which part of our atmosphere, is Terra Firma, not a part of?
A: The atmosphere itself? K...then remove it. Won't the structure and structures crumble?
I’m just wondering about the high-altitude atmospheric testing that has taken place. Nevermind the holes themselves, what I am thinking about, is all that shit that these detonations pushed out of the way. Nevermind the chemical and molecular/atomic and smaller reactions that happened up in an area/environment that we know absolutely fuckall about. And now, we are smearing layer after layer of all kinds of pollution and pollutants in the air that originated from underground. Yeah, under that layer that we just 86’d to see what was a part of what and where and when.
^Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr ~ You Don’t Have To Be A Star 1976 Disco Purrfection Version^
Did you ever have a lawn that you got to burn the dry grass in the late-winter/early-spring? I wonder if that heat creates like…a vacuous kind of action, and has a drawing-up and/or out kind of effect on the soil(s)?
Just thinking out loud.
Was watching a documentary on pre-Columbus America recently, and they were talking about the Native American peoples that used to burn the grasslands so that they would grow grasses and plants that attracted game. And they also talked about The Anasazi.
Hey…if we ain’t talking people while talking all this other bullshit? Then what in the FUCK are we talking for? What are we even talking about?

We in-terra-upt this disruption for an important-ish messyage…
I’ll stop right there, since someone recently put something on my radar regarding some dude that lived somewhere at some time, and said something at some point to the effect of…
“The dose makes the poison”
Roob is gonna have to edit this nonsense, and being that it’s my first in a while that we’ll do together…I’ll wrap it up.
^Röyksopp – Happy Up Here (Datassette Remix)^
How can my testicles/scrotum properly and accurately regulate temperature(s) and/or pressure(s), when my junk is all crammed together into an inefficiency apartment, and I’m required to sit all day or do repetitive motions all day or whatever? Makes me think about clothing(s) of all kinds.
I can see why women like wearing thongs so much, cause there ain’t much there. Not that I am willing to start wearing underwear again in a thong configuration. My junk is too tiny/I couldn’t make a thong work. I did wear bikini-briefs for a while. Can’t wear regular-briefs at all, and can’t wear boxers all the time. Boxer briefs were pretty awesome when they finally started making those, but even that gets irritating.
So yeah…erm…testicular and glandular issues/irregularities and hormonal issues. I mean sure, my penis is kinda small, but I need it, and it’s neighbors. I dunno why, but I do. I think all that shit has more than one function or something.
