*******

How many people do you know? I’ll wait while you think.

Now, how many of those people that you know, do you get actually along well with? I’ll again wait while you think.

How many people did you used to get along with, that you no longer get along with?

See where I'm going with this?

It’s likely, that you are a selfish fuck who only likes/gets along with people that serve your needs. Every single person on this planet was put here to serve you and your needs.

^Sisko Electrofanatik & T78 – Bon (Original Mix)^

OK…so…perhaps that was a bit strong. Just wondering if you ever wonder why people don’t like you. Why you have no friends. Why you can’t meet people or have trouble meeting people. Why you can’t keep friends. But I wasn’t wondering just and only that. Was thinking about how we meet, how we develop relationships, what pretenses we have for developing those relationships, and who gets to decide where these relationships go. My guess is, you play a 50% role in 100% of the success or failure of a relationship. That’s just a guess.

^Front 242 – Happiness (Dub Mix by Underworld)^

Have you ever noticed that in these “supernatural videos”, the ghosts or spirits or demons or poltergeists or whatever type of entity they are, will play havoc will electrical systems and/or electronic gizmos of all kinds…but for some odd reason…the cameras always keep right on rolling?

Weird
^Top 10 Poltergeists || LPE360^

Do you perform tricks on command?

Bark 

Right now…bark. Go on…

you can do it

Drop those inhibitions, and bark, out loud, right now. Bark, laugh, stand on one leg, then repeat that whole process for the next hour. Yeah, this is just me, but a complete stranger barging into your space and demanding that you perform specific tasks on command is an odd concept to ponder. I guess spirit has no rights. Better not die. Paybacks are prolly a bitch in the afterlife.

^Young the Giant: My Body [OFFICIAL VIDEO]^

Speaking of spirit…

Wonder (Emotion)

I miss wonder. Well, I think I don’t miss wonder as much as I wonder why I’m told to qualify any emotions that I have which lean towards awe, amazement or even just plain old excitement of being astonished. For example, according to my YouTube feed, Space-X has launched about 30 rockets this past week. Well, maybe not 30, but every damn day there is a live feed of some new Space-X launch. Should I feel bad about staring in amazement at what this group has accomplished just because there are those that think Elon Musk is some freaky futurist who is hell-bent on some kind of world domination? Why are you looking for tyrants? Doesn’t your being hell-bent on looking for tyrants, exposing tyrants for what they are, and eventually eliminating tyrants, make you yourself…a tyrant?

^Stromae – Alors On Danse (Clip Officiel)^

Things like this really gets me to wondering…

These “paranormal events” always seem to happen randomly with no provocation, then the investigators show up, and demand a repeat. Fair enough. It’s part of the scientific method after all.

Demonstrable AND repeatable = proof

But you know the problem with being a magician? You can know every trick in the book, but you are still just a one-trick pony. Anyone you encounter, who discovers that you are a magician? Can you guess what their first query is going to be? Yep…

”Do a trick” 

The next query will be…

”Do another one!”
^Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson – Next Step^

Most “paranormal investigators I’ve seen do this. After the first trick is performed, you ask for another…then another, and it goes on and on like that. After you conclude one “investigation”, you start another. Lots of purported haunted sites after all.

Q: Do you only investigate sites that you are invited to?

A: Doesn't that make you a vampire?

Of sorts.

^The Ting Tings – Shut Up and Let Me Go^

Wait…just…one…fucking…minute, and hold the fucking phone. I think I get it now. If you correctly/accurately locate and properly identify the Antichrist, that must mean that Jesus is right around the corner…right? Is that’s why these fucks label anyone and everyone as the Antichrist? Eventually, they’ll get it right, Jesus will show up shortly after, and you’re home free. That said, I wonder what Jesus is going to have to say about your shitty batting average(s)?

Q: Why is the Antichrist called “the” Antichrist?

A: It's not like Jesus is “The Jesus”.

Except in the movie The Big Lebowski…There’s a Jesus in there that is “The Jesus”.

^WoodKid – Run Boy Run (A Level Music Video)^

HEY! I learned a new “sync” definition recently. It’s when advertisers leech off of fine art in a particular ad in order to play on your subconscious whether you realize it or not. Or when scenes in certain movies emulate scenes depicted in some painting for the same reason(s) as advertisers. Sure, I’ve seen loads of stuff like this before, but I’d never before associated this and these types of recognition as…”syncs” or, “synchs” as I prefer to call them. Association(s) via distant, vague and/or wispy/foggy recognition methods. Like overlaying a not so clear something, with a very clear something that somewhat resembles the original.

We’re kinda used to similarities and deviations in language, but no so much with visual-only types of aspects. I mean, if you see a film that has a scene which reenacts a depiction of a famous painting, do you realize what you are seeing at the time? Do you know the painting? If so, do you like it? Do you hate it? More than that, if you are unfamiliar with the painting, and see it after you see this movie, does how you felt about the movie affect how you feel now about the painting?

Q: Did you know that the main melody from this next song is actually a sample from the Goldfinger soundtrack?

A: ?¿?

Welp, if you didn’t before, you do now.

^Sneaker Pimps – 6 Underground – Official Video [HD]^

For those of you into this kind of thing, did you know that Christopher Walken’s character in the movie Joe Dirt was called “Gert B. Frobe”? Did you know that “Gert Fröbe” is a real person? I did, but I never made that connection before. Not before now anyway. Watched the movie Goldfinger the other night, and it struck me that the actor playing Goldfinger also played Sgt. Coffee Pot in the movie The Longest Day, and I’ve seen them in a bunch of other movies, so I looked them up. There is was… Gert Fröbe. At long last, that small bit from the movie Joe Dirt made sense.

Yeah….I know…stupid trivia. Nothing but worthless and/or useless information, connected by the thinnest of threads.

The Devil Is In The Detail

Or maybe not

^Learn Funny German Sayings/Proverbs^

We didn’t know each other, we met, we knew something of each other, and now…here we are.

Q: How’d we get here?

A: ???

Where are we? Who’s driving this fucker? Maybe when relationships become relationsips, we drown ourselves in not much of anything. Of course the flipside is, we learn things about people as we go, and there’s likely to be all kinds of shit lurking in that past that you’d rather was not there. Get rid of them, move on, problem solved. How’d all that old shit get dug up anyway. What is this, some kind of initiation process?

^Showtek – The F Track^

Your home is prolly loaded with all kinds of stuff and gadgets and all manner of things that are pleasing to you personally. But how can anyone compete with the likes of that? Should I have to compete with stuff like that? Are you looking to streamline? Wanting a mate so you can get rid of that automatic dishwasher? Fire your hired domestic servant and/or cleaning service? Am I rambling?

Yeah, I am

Just wondering what it is you are looking for. Because I can pretty much tell you, it isn’t here. Even if it is here, it won’t be here for long.

^Lunachicks – Heart Of Glass^

Let’s say that there are 8 billion humans on a certain planet, and you are lucky enough to have three close friends. That means that you are close friends with 0.000000000000375% of the humans on the planet. Well done. Now, let’s see how connected you really are to this planet and/or the life on it.

Humans share the planet with as many as 8.7 million different forms of life, according to what is being billed as the most accurate estimate yet of life on Earth.

Aug 23, 2011 – Source: Google – 27 April 2019

So…there are 8.7 million different forms of life on Earth/Terra, and you are friends with 0.000000000000375% of only 1 form of life. Tell me, how do you personally feel about other forms of life? Best buddies with roaches? Wasps? Ants? Sharks? Stray dogs? Armadillos? Flies? Treponema pallidum?

Yeah, I didn't think so

Your home is a pest-free zone, and you aim to keep that way. Damn…if you don’t mind me saying, you are one completely disconnected and totally fucked up individual. No wonder you are single.

^Headhunterz – Rock Civilization^

I wonder how wobbly things like pyramids would look if you could view them over very long spans of time. They’d likely not only be wobbly, but also bouncy and spinny. Maybe that’s why the outer coverings of the Pyramids of Giza have come off, and maybe the key to these pyramids rigidity and eventual longevity is actually because they are quite…

flexible

Like, over time and times, they roll with the punches, and accommodations were made for these flexions in the original construction. Hell, maybe that’s why the outer covering was added. Viewed through the right eyes over the right spans in time, there’s a lot you could learn about the planetary dynamics that affect certain structures or even certain areas where these structures are built. If one were so inclined anyway.

^Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Remix Radio Edit)^

Was watching a documentary with a certain someone, and the subject of transubstantiation came up. I guess at the Council Of Trent, there were questions as to whether Jesus turned from God or spirit or whatever, into a human. The Catholics appear to have had a desire to know, and the Protestants just wanted to chalk it up to “mystery”, and move on.

Did you know that the Moon Jellyfish is considered a pest/nuisance to “Sea Cucumber Aquaculture”, and that exposing Moon Jellyfish polyps to something called “tea saponin” causes the young jellyfish to shrivel up and die?

I can almost see the look on your face

You are likely wondering what in the flying FUCK transubstantiation has to do with the price of tea saponin on a Sea Cucumber farm.

Q: Is there ever anything that appears in your life which prevents you from becoming what it is that you should be?

A: ¿?¿

Yeah…me too. All the fucking time. Sailing along, fair seas, everything is great, then suddenly….BAM!!! Some new variable is plopped into the pot.

^BASTILLE-THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE [ OFFICIAL VIDEO+LYRICS] [HQ-HD]^

If you stupid fucks keep shooting up Sin-O-Gogs and other places of worship/fellowship, no one is going to be able to visit one without a goddamn membership card. Oh wait…maybe that’s what you want. Membership cards means approval processes. Approval processes mean overhead. Overhead means overheads. Overhead and overheads means revenues. Revenue(s) means CHA CHING!!!

^Mad T.V Blink-182 Skit^

Speaking of revenue(s), I’ve been thinking about starting a Patreon account or whatever it is. Just keep doing what I do, cept start a Patreon account to where people could donate a dollar here and there if they wanted. I mean, for a guy like me, even if I only made $10/$20 a month? That’s $10/$20 more than I make now. God knows my searches for a more or less normal job have been unfruitful. Why no one wants to hire a broken and gimpy old dude is beyond me.

^Shut Up and Dance – WALK THE MOON^

X: This one is rather acerbic, don’t you think?

Cade: Kiss my ass.

X: See? Nothing but bitterness and hatred.

Cade: You don’t think that any reader might have picked up on my firing that particular shot at you simply for effect?

X: Might be dangerous to assume what the reader thinks/doesn’t think.

Cade: That’s why I tend not to do it.

X: What do you usually do.

Cade: Roll.

0: Can I interject?

Cade: Can I stop you from doing so?

0: Not really, no.

Cade: Fire away.

0: I forgot what I was going to ask.

Cade: I’ve been having that problem a lot lately.

K: Forgetting things are you?

Cade: Hello there. Long time no see. And yes, forgetting all kinds of things.

K: Are you worried?

Cade: Not really. It’s not like I can do anything about it.

K: Have you looked into supplements? They are making some amazing things these days.

Cade: Their claims are amazing. Not so sure about what their products deliver other than some amazing profits to them.

K: What’s wrong with prophets?

Cade: I dunno. Sure seem to be a lot of them tho.

K: You think there is a correlation to be made with respect to the appearance of prophets and profits?

Cade: Someone’s got to bang the drum if there are to be any revenue streams that eventually result in some profits.

K: I’ve got a tiger by the tail.

Cade: Don’t I know it.

0: Do you really think that any reader is going to know what the hell any of that means?

Cade: I don’t know what it means.

K: Oh yes you do.

Cade: I really don’t. Everything has to have an answered “why” attached in order for anything to have any meaning.

K: Care to elaborate?

Cade: Anyone reading this, would want to know both who you are, and why you are talking to me.

K: Is the letter “K” indicative of who I am?

Cade: Sorta. But you fucks are kinda cagey.

K: You think anyone reading this would know what कुण्डलिनी means?

Cade: They could prolly copy/paste that into a search engine and get some indications.

K: Is that who I am?

Cade: No idea.

X: Expansive question.

Cade: It is indeed a very expansive question. I’ve got to elaborate and come up with a bunch of questions of my own, and then answer them.

K: And you have no answers.

Cade: That is correct…I have no answers.

K: I’ve got my eye on you boy.

Cade: Making a private conversation public is a difficult concept to wrestle with.

K: People do it all the time.

Cade: Yeah…after the fact. Usually when circumstance has changed and/or it’s beneficial for one, and detrimental to another.

K: You really weigh such things?

Cade: Sure. I’m not the only individual on this planet.

K: Lot’s of life in The Universe.

Cade: So it would appear.

K: Catch you later.

Cade: lolz

K: …

Learning how to express one’s thoughts is difficult. How to express yourself, when it is proper to express yourself, why you are expressing yourself. It’s a difficult proposition. Maybe that’s why “the gods”, if they exist, seem so erratic. So flighty and irregular. But that’s how relationships go I guess. Periodic interactions, many of which seem to have little to no meaning at the time of occurrence. But to be fair, you don’t want to smother those that you care about…

right?
^Mezdeke – Shik Shak Shok^

If you know the answer(s), then why are you asking me? The only thing that I can come up with, is that you aren’t looking for answers, as much as you are seeking data to shore up your own beliefs in the answers you already possess. Tests. You are testing your position.

Fair enough

Good luck.

^Fionnuala Gill – Deus Meus (Adiuva Me)^

Today’s playlist has some interesting shit in it, yeah?

^Cafe Shahor Hazak ft Nechi Nech – ihiye beseder//פה שחור חזק מארחים את נצי נצ‘ – יהיה בסדר^

Wait…what’s that? You didn’t realize that the music I use in posts comes from randomly generated playlists on YouTube, and I post whatever song I’m listening to at the time?

*I did wonder, Clicky…*

Welp, for the most part, that’s exactly what happens. Yes, I sometimes post music that I have selected for some reason. Usually because a song pops into my head as I’m writing about a certain something. But most of the time?

Yep...completely random

Same with the images. Strange way to write, eh? Welp, I personally am not trying to wrestle the elements and elementals to the ground in order to get them to do my bidding. I don’t want to be led around by the nose, but sometimes, that’s prolly exactly what happens. As to when I am in control of my own life, and when I am not? No idea. You seem to be a better judge at that than I. And yes…I specifically selected this song below, because it’s been bouncing around in my head for several weeks now, and thanks to the Joe Dirt Wikipedia article I noticed that it appears on the movie’s soundtrack. Enjoy.

And yeah, you are a roller baby

^April Wine – Roller (Official Music Video)^

I am going to go ahead and let you know, that why exactly it is that I’m suddenly changing gears and posting some of Blink 182’s crap is none of your fucking business. But, I’m a nice guy. I’ll tell you if you ask.

😛

And to answer what I perceive to be a roundabout question, and to answer that roundabout question in a roundabout way, yes, I was aware that the drummer from Blink 182 was in a plane crash, was badly burned/was pretty lucky to have survived. Everyone else died.

😦

Well, one dude died later, but yeah, everyone on that plane died all the way to full-on dead.

^Steve Aoki – Why Are We So Broken feat. Blink 182 (Official Video) [Ultra Music]^

Got a parting query…

Q: If you are afraid of death, doesn’t that mean that you are also afraid of life?

A: !!!?!!!

Gotta be alive to be able to fear death, and if you fear death, that means you likely fear life.

If you’re dead, you no longer need fear death, and you can’t fear death even if you wanted to, because you’re dead.

Mystery = SOLVED BY DEATH! OR LIFE! OR WHATEVER! Next?
^The Script – Hall of Fame (Official Video) ft. will.i.am^

Just wondering if it’s a good idea to spend you life fearing death.

I wonder who could possibly want you to spend your life fearing death.

Who would encourage you to fear death.

I’m guessing, that anyone needing a cuddle, might encourage you along the lines of fearing this or that.

Not suggesting that you abandon reason, nor that you ignore wisdom.

Just wondering aloud.
