^Europe – The Final Countdown (Official Video)^
Well hello there
I have working headphones again.
The 30-Day Music Challenge has ended.
We’re back in bidness as usual which is usually unusual.
Weird. Sounds almost like a command or strong suggestion. Something Yoda might say.
Unuse you will...save you it can!
Did you know that there is only one character difference between “strong suggestion” and “string suggestion”?
Typos are sometimes wonderful things
^Hit The Lights^
Makes me wonder if “the unusual” is considered (by some) to be unusable by those same sum of some(s). The fringe(s). The theoretical(s) and hypothetical(s). That which is of no immediate and/or practical application. Some kind of chaff that exists when you are seeking only wheat, or maybe the dirt that clings to a vegetable pulled from the ground, or the hide/skin and guts of a prey item. Useless stuff. Garbage. Layers that must be shed in order to get to the good stuff.
Hrm...that didn't go where I thought it might
Been long pondering the embedding of meaning(s) in certain English words that potentially only certain “in the know” types of people may be able to interpret. And I’m not talking about glyphs or symbols or petroglyphs or pictographs or semaphores or ciphers or codes in the usual sense. There’s more to language than just and only some direct and distinct tonal quality that means just and only one thing. And yes, I realize that some words have multiple meanings, and also realize that meaning(s) themselves can have multiple meanings. What I’ve pondered is the sequencing of certain tonal qualities to create entirely other meanings. Perhaps some meanings that are so close to the original meaning(s) that they are almost undetectable. Such as the word “unsual”. Slap the right accent(s) on such a word, or use it in a certain context within a certain string or thread? You could potentially derail someone’s train of thought. Think, puns. Or maybe regional dialects/accents. You can go from there.
^Crazy lady at Walmart^
My mind isn’t your mind. With that in mind, let’s get any interested parties up to speed (myself included).
Have you ever heard of something called “time on page”? It’s a metric use to determine how long a visitor spends on a particular webpage. What’s that? You were not aware such things were possible to even know?
No wait, that's not it
FUCK!!! That's not it either
Session Description Protocol
GAH!!! I am totally off-course
What Really Happens in a Therapy Session
I’m getting further into the fringes. Unusual stuff that un-use you will. Visiting web pages is not a therapy session, nor is visiting web pages anything even remotely like a therapy session. Visiting web pages is a session, nothing more, no therapeutic value whatsoever.
What Is Time on Page and Why Is It Important?
They wanna know how long you spent, where, all so it can be estimated as to what you saw, and ultimately the likelihood of what you absorbed/what potentially influenced you. I mean, if you visit a webpage that takes the average reader 5 minutes to read, but you only spend 17 seconds on that page, and you then run straight to AmazonDOTcalm and purchase a pair of “Silkie’s Sultry Slippers”? There may be a connection to be made. Especially if that web page you only spent 17 second on contained an advertisement for…Silkie’s Sultry Slippers. Or maybe even if that web page contained an advertisement for “Bob’s Dog Insole Inserts”. Information like that is highly prized I would imagine.
^Rush – Subdivisions (with lyrics)^
I guess that impeachment thingie is starting in earnest. Strange that Brexit news has been so quiet. Of course, there is all that “city vs rural” kinds of crap going on in Virginia. And I think some royals from the UK have abandoned ship to some degree. I also think I heard somewhere that Southend is beefing up enforcement on automobile crime, although I’m not sure what all that would entail. Oh, and some dude from Basildon has been thrown in the hoosegow for taking bribes, and this same dude appears to have been in charge of installing fire alarms in Grenfell Tower. A plane dumped jet fuel on school children. The preliminary report on Atlas Air Flight 3591 has been released, and it appears that the captain may have accidentally/inadvertently activated the automatic go-around system (TOGO), but none of the flight crew seems to have noticed. Iran shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet. A bunch of really weird patents have been issued. Sikhs living in the Punjab area of India are now able to make pilgrimages to Pakistan via a new “peace corridor” between the two countries. Terry Jones appears to have passed.
Did I miss anything?
^Inspection (Check One) (Remastered)^
Was pretty young when I first heard Devo’s song “Wiggly World”, and at the time, and even up until only recently, I only associated “wiggly things” with human behaviors. Trends are like this today, like that tomorrow. I’m held in esteem today, on a shit-list tomorrow.
That said, over the past few days I’ve been wandering around earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes, and wondering about how energy transfers from vertical waves to horizontal waves. More than that, maybe even perhaps horizontal waves are actually vertical waves that are, contextually, misinterpreted. Suddenly this morning, I stumble across the image above when searching for geometry gifs. You are likely thinking pure chance. Law of averages. I’m digging for nothing in particular, spot something that is contextually applicable, therefore I made a conscious decision to grab the image and use it because it was beneficial for me to do so. That image is nothing more than low hanging fruit.
However, we live in a targeted world of targeted advertising, where there are those that are using anything and everything at their disposal to find you and target you. In fact, that’s probably the reason there’s all this “targeted individual” stuff that appeared on the horizon sometime back. A way of getting cutting-edge types of thinking and/or technology into the public consciousness so that the blade can be dulled over time. Get people to start chalking the concept up to madness and/or crazy people on the fringes so that it will be immediately dismissed as impossible nonsense.
^Triumph – Time Goes By – with Lyrics on Screen^
We humans aren’t that clever, amirite?
Q: Who told you that you weren’t clever and/or not clever enough?
“Humans aren’t that clever.” Sounds almost like something uttered in The Garden of Eden. “Who told you that you were naked?” I’m not suggesting that Satan is involved here. Not suggesting that Satan is telling all of you uneducated and inexperienced dunces what a bunch of idiots you really are.
Just wondering aloud
It’s never straight up and down.
You know what has been completely absent from my life recently?
Is anyone even making movies anymore? Seems to be more focus as of late within the entertainment industry on television series. And where is the new music at. Maybe there’s a shift going on. Some something I am unaware of. Unpossible. I know almost everything.
^Starfucker // STRFKR – Golden Light^
Saw a “I don’t get it” type of comment from someone some time back during the 30-Day Challenge, and I’ve thought a lot about it. I don’t have an answer. If for no other reason, this is not a one-man/one-person rodeo. I can only tell you what I personally think. That said, we are, most of us, bombarded with information daily, from multiple sources, on a wide array of topics, and the only common denominator in every single case…
It doesn’t matter where information originates, what matters is where that information ends up, and how that information is translated and interpreted by you. Only then does the source of the information matter.
EX: If someone approaches you on the street and hands you a leaflet that says “GO FUCK YOURSELF!”, how you assimilate that information is all that really matters. Why is this person handing out leaflets that say what they say? Why did they hand one to me? Why did I take it? Why should I go fuck myself at this person’s prompting? What should I do now?
There are some of us who spend time trying to figure out why we do the things we do. Why we think how we think. What the mechanics behind thought, and what are the things in our lives that are influencing and/or attempting to influence how we think or what we do, or even what we do not think or do not do. Where do I fit? Why do I not fit? Existential types of “nonsense” that likely makes no sense to anyone but ourselves.
^The Smiths – Golden Lights^
There appear to be people in this world that do not fit in the same way and ways that others fit in. If we don’t belong here, then what in the FUCK are we doing here? Some choose to stop at the “why are we here?” question, and await an answer. Others, may decide to keep asking the question repeatedly whilst searching for an answer. Still others may choose to rework and reword the question in order find their answer(s). And I’d venture a guess that there are some that choose to skip over the question entirely, and just kinda do their own thing. Multifaceted approaches to a singular question…
Why are we here?
Wait, that’s not right. The “question” is as multifaceted as the approaches.
Why are we here? Why am I here?
Not everything falls within the group context. Even that which does fall within the group context doesn’t always and forever fall within the group context. Everyone pees and poops, but everyone also (for the most part) pees and poops…alone. So yeah, layers to reality, realities and truth(s), and exploring those concepts. ‘Cept like, in a more public way. Writing openly and honestly about our thoughts and experiences as opposed to always turning everything inward. Maybe even helping others along the way.
That new whatever virus that appeared in China in early/mid December, now appears to have appeared in Seattle. Dunno if you noticed, but that Wikipedia article on “Interruption Science” mentions aviation being an example of a “high-risk workplace environment”.
Spoke–Hub Distribution Paradigm
Now, not that I personally know anyone who has been recently diagnosed with pneumonia or anything, but right now, there are information gathering and information reporting hubs and spokes that are spinning a lot of wheels to figure out what in the flying fuck is going on with the new whatever it is, how it is spreading.
^Talking Heads – Once In A Lifetime (Gigamesh Remix)^
Does pestilence and disease typically precede war? Or does pestilence and disease typically follow. I’m not a detective or anything, it just occurs to me that you are unlikely to be able to fight a war if all your soldiers are sick. That is of course, unless you’ve isolated pockets here and there which are separate and independent of your main forces and/or home territory. Especially if these isolated pockets are armed with more or less automated weapons. You may not be able to defeat your enemies in the way and ways you’d like to, but you sure can bloody their noses and put a cramp in their style. I’m right back to horizontal waves being misinterpreted as vertical waves, and vice-versa.
The main problem that I see is perspective, especially that hindsight angle. Hindsight can really fuck with you if one isn’t careful. It can make one a trendy one who thinks only in trends. Thinking like that where no trends exist? Disastrous.
Depending on application of course
It may just make you a dull nothing who is not capable of much of anything…’cept nothing.
^The Camera Eye^
It has always has confused me as to why, in the case of the Sendai Earthquake, did it take so long for the tsunami to reach shore. And why has the name of this event changed so much over time? Is it because “this event” cascaded into “these events”? The earthquake? The tsunami(s)? Fukushima? I should digress before I get too far offshore.
2011 Tōhoku Earthquake And Tsunami
The epicenter wasn’t that far offshore, the wave(s) are said to move at 500 mph plus or minus a few, so why did the water waves themselves take so long to reach shore? Does it have anything to do with the waves traveling against the rotation of the planet? Is the fact that the earthquake lasted so long a factor? Is the fact that the ground itself moved quite far a factor? Does the fact that time itself changed for the entire planet as a result of this earthquake have anything to do with anything? What is a time-shift anyway? How does matter accommodate a change in energy/energies? How does both matter and energy accommodate a change in spin which results in an alteration in time?
I can only wonder how such shifts/adjustments affect what is known as radioactive decay. Not only that, but are any such changes measurable within the scope and scale of how we view and perceive time? If there is a measurable time, you can bet your ass that such a thing as “immeasurable time” also exists, and it likely exists in the same stream and streams as measurable time(s).
^”Add It Up” w/ lyrics by THE VIOLENT FEMMES^
I admit that I was aware of the more intricate clockworks of the Universe from a young age, but never paid much mind to the goings on because I was taught not to.
That's God's territory
Oh, and astrology is Satan/Lucifer/The Devil’s territory, so one needs to stay away from that as well. So yeah, where do I belong? What is “my” territory? Do I even have any? More than that, when and where do I become an individual? Where does everything else stop, and I begin?
Now, one reading this might start to think that I am some kind of egomaniacal lunatic bent on conquest and world domination. But you only see a part of me via these writings. Lots of stuff you miss. But then again, maybe you are looking for something that qualifies me according to some need that you yourself have. Wait…where was I originally going with this thought? Oh yes, universal clockworks and how time and times are set and adjusted. Bumps, grinds, inversions and advances to keep things moving as they should be moving. I mean, you really don’t think that every single grain of sand on the entire planet is moving at the same speed do you? That every molecule of water and air are moving in the same direction at the same velocity? That everything moves at the same speed, all at the same time? Nah, of course you don’t. That’d be completely ridiculous. Nonsense.
^Rocky Horror Time Warp^
Breaking away from the known is rough. Being pried away from the known is equally rough. Yet, we seem to live in a world where both concepts are prevalent, and one might even argue…necessary. You can let your mind wonder at will regarding what it means to “break away” and/or what it means “to be pried away”. Situations where things just aren’t working out as one had hoped. People are doing things you think they should not be doing. Or maybe you yourself are doing something that just doesn’t feel right anymore. I mean, who knew that eating an entire tub of margarine every day was bad for you? How could you possibly know that some readily available something was going to clog your heart with fatbergs that need to be plunged by medical plumbers? Question is, now what?
I suggest outrage
“They” shouldn’t be allowed to sell this stuff. Consumers are uneducated dummies, and we need someone to look out for us and take care of us. What does any of that have to do with breaking out and/or breaking away? I dunno. Figure it out your own damn self. You’re the smart one with all the answers. Oh, but do let me know what you find. I’d be interested in knowing how I should think.
Ya know, going forward

You are really quite clever with words, aren’t you. Rhetorical.
My favourite French word is Particuliar, if you would care to think about that and tell me what you see.

To be fair, within the context of the writing that I do for The LoL, the editing/formatting that you do is likely to be largely responsible for any cleverness that comes through to the reader. From the very start, you’ve seemed to have a pretty good bead on how I think/what I am saying, and you format the stuff in such a way that it perhaps (hopefully) makes much more sense to the reader.
I mean lets be honest. I send you a huge block of plain text…you don’t have prior knowledge of when I’ll be sending you something, you’ve no clue what I’m going to be writing about, nor why I’m writing about it, nor “what my point is”, and I constantly throw you curves when I’m attempting to be creative with a particular something…and yet, you repeatedly breathe life into these things.
I have no problem with being called clever, and am appreciative of the compliment. (I see it as a compliment anyway) That said, I primarily try and be creative. I imagine you too are trying to be creative. (which you do, and you are)

“My favourite French word is Particuliar, if you would care to think about that and tell me what you see.”
Sure Elena…I’ll play. 🙂
My first thought was, “is she talking to me? Or Roob?” Roob does add her bits at the top and bottom, plus this is her blog, so I always try and be mindful of those facts. Elena’s comment may not be directed at me.
Second thought was, I better go ask Roob what she thinks. (who the comment was directed at) Would be stupid of me to reply if the comment was not directed at me. This can’t be directed towards me…she used the word “clever”.
Third thought (after speaking with Roob) was, lolz…on the whole, I am NOT clever with words. Especially in these things where I typically just sit down and start writing whatever pops into my head over the course of the 2/3 hours it usually takes me to write them. Yeah, this is not directed at me, but lets ponder the comment anyway on the off chance it is directed at me.
Fourth thought was, Rhetorical…yes. Relational. Something not so “etched in stone” that no one can understand it but me. Keep it honest, don’t lie, don’t stretch, don’t embellish. Something that maybe someone else can relate to. And yes, some of my stuff is absurd and/or sarcastic, which some might argue is dishonest. But there is some ridiculous stuff in the world, it makes little sense, and sometime sarcasm or absurdity can add some humor in cases where there are no answers to be found. Keep the bullshit separate and distinguishable from “the pearls” as best I can.
Fifth thought was, Rhetorical. Divisory. A fuzzy layer on top of an existing something that allows for communication between to things that might not otherwise be able to communicate and/or relate thoughts and ideas. Logic and reason without feeling is nothing more than an instruction manual or manifesto of some kind.
Sixth thought was, Particuliar. Particular is French? Weird. I was not aware of that. Odd that this word “particular”, much like “rhetorical”, also is divisory.
P – ART – I – C – U – LIAR.
PART – I – C – U – LIAR.
Wait, is this one of those “clever embedded somethings” where someone is “speaking in code”? Is she calling me a liar, and telling me “I SEE YOU” in the process? Lots of the “synchromysticism” types of folks appear to speak this way, and it’s a something that I can do, but I prefer not to if I can avoid it. But this is Elena…she’s not really part of that crowd as far as I know.
Seventh thought was, DOH!!! Nope, it’s a goddamn typo!!! Particular is spelled P-A-R-T-I-C-U-L-A-R, not P-A-R-T-I-C-U-L-I-A-R, but she mentioned “French”, so you better check Google Translate just to be sure, Spelling confirmed, and PARTICULIAR does not appear to exist. You spent all this time thinking and musing over…a fucking typo?!?!!??? “LOLZ…You were in reading mode, and not editing mode, so you completely fucking missed that!!!” I feel like an idiot, but only for a moment. Actually pretty funny. Not to mention that I’m knot the best of spellors.
Current thought is…time well spent. 😉
