Missive From ‘Merica: Covid Cosmic Thinking

Hello there, Dear Reader. Glad you could join us…

*That’s rude… /lights up…*

*No, we are not well and truly fucked, Clicky… /drags… Okay, maybe the French are… /streams smoke…*

… For a brand new missive from Cade Fon Apollyon, the Text Us Okie Devil. He and I were thoroughly engrossed in remote viewing Carl Sagan’s late 70s ‘Cosmos’ TV series at the we kenned. Although physically we’re caught up in our countries respective lockdowns, our thinking was/is free to travel unhindered…

*Sumfin’ like that…*

… and the same is true for you, Dear Reader, if you think about it 😉 Enjoy! ❤

What say we stretch our legs a bit? O wait, exercise is suddenly forbidden. I guess the Religion of Health Healthiness and The Healthy is gonna take a blow thanks to these recent developments. Gonna have to make some adjustments to existing exercise regimens, and you can bet there are people working on such plans as you read this. Gyms and spas are festering septic tanks of disease. Running is out, walking is out, being out is out, but on the upside, dogshit piles in public places is likely to be much diminished. Massage therapy is out, touch therapy is out, dating is out, prostitution is out, public gatherings are out, sports are out, and I guess pretty much any and every therapy and activity is out unless it has been much scrutinized, sterilized and approved. Sounds clean.

Q: What about next year?

A: ¿ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ?

“The flu” is a seasonal thing. This nCoV-2019 thingie appears to have cropped up/been released into the wild sometime between late October and early December, and that’s well within the range of what we here would consider the normal time to start catching the flu. So, now that this thing IS in the wild, Spring is now here and potentially could aid in this thing burning off/losing steam via the season change(s), I’m wondering about next year’s “flu season”. Like is this thing gonna pop up again next fall/winter, and are those in command are gonna shut everything down and lock everyone in prior to the holiday season?

Also concerned about our friends down in the southern hemisphere. It’s just turning fall there as we here transition to spring. Wondering now if this is likely to result in some odd mutations which may allow this thing to stay prevalent year-round. Global travel will resume at some point. It has to. Everything in our economies depends on it. Thinking a bit now how this new little gizmo can be used to get things moving and keep things moving in the direction(s) that the Bilderbergs want it to go. I mean, that’s who is running all this shiz, right? They own everything, are responsible for everything, are behind everything that happens, so whatever happens from here is all their fault.

Gotta wonder if it is inappropriate for me to date an alien. I mean, I know its OK to pursue aliens of various types, in various ways because all kinds of people do that for myriads of reasons. But I’m wondering if it’s OK if I hook up with an alien. I have no idea why I’m asking your opinion on what’s best for me and my future alien girlfriend.

^Underworld – Born Slippy (Alma & Mater Edit)^

Reading through that Wikipedia article on ‘Law Of Identity’, and was thinking about the “a rose is a rose” bit as I read, and it occurs to me that “rose” is only one side of the story.

 Our side

Rose

We named it. We observed it and documented all of its/their features. Pretty much no thought put into what we are in relation to a rose. There also appears to be no thought given to what a rose thinks of us, nor what a rose thinks of what we think of them. But why would we give any thought to such things. A rose has no voice. It cannot communicate with us in any way, shape or form.

Q: Could wearing a hat which contains a logo on it be considered “taking a mark on one’s forehead”?

A: ¿? ~°╗0╔°~ ?¿

I’ve always wondered what they meant in the Bible by “taking the mark of the beast on their foreheads” or whatever, and someone recently gave me a toboggan with a giant-assed “Las Vegas” logo on it. Got me to wondering if, by wearing this hat with this logo, I was willfully putting a mark on my forehead. Will prolly be microchips in hats at some point (if there aren’t already). Lots of ways other than microchips to use hats as an identifying mark tho.

One of the problems that I keep stumbling onto regarding The Big Bang is that there was/is only one, and that one happened once. Not to mention, that if this one big bang did in fact happen, and we are the sum total, this bang is still happening, and we are in fact not the sum total. “A” sum total, sure, but not “the” sum total.

Anyway, one of the things that I’ve long pondered is why I can go above “1” on the periodic table of elements, but I cannot go below “1”. Another thing that has bothered me is why certain things have no representation. They don’t exist. Not here anyway.

Q: Can they?

A: ? !!!VAGUERY!!! ?

Humans have evolved to the point where certain things which do not exist/occur naturally here on Earth/Terra can be created synthetically. But some stuff?

Nope. Not yet anyway

So thinking with respect to this big bang that is said to have occurred 13.7 or so billion years ago, there have been times when a something not only did not exist, it could not exist. No yet anyway. This makes me think a bit about extinct species, and causes me to correlate when certain organic and inorganic matter exists. Makes me wonder if maybe there are certain frequencies embedded within the fabric of the space and time(s) that we know, and that makes me wonder if certain things have their own period(s).

^Svreca – Ebisu (Dasha Rush Remix) [SEMANTICA44.2]^

sopi-u_002

Yeah…anti-elements. That’s kinda what I’m thinking about. Some pre-matrix or post-matrix something that allows or prohibits a something from existing. And I’m not thinking in terms of universal standards either. Way too much weird and rarefied shit going on out there that is quite localized. Basically, I’m wondering if there is something embedded within nature which allows certain things to exist or certain events to occur under certain conditions, and maybe also prohibits certain things from existing or certain events from occurring under any conditions. Sounds pretty straightforward, right? A given. All we need do is figure out what those conditions are, allowing us to create those conditions, then we can do whatever it is we need/want to do.

Q: Why do nuclear detonations contain fire?

A: I've honestly never pondered this

I assume the naturally occurring hydrogen is burning and oxygen along with it, but you’re usually talking about extraordinarily small amounts of “fuel” powering these devices, and there’s really no secondary anything in the device to burn. High explosives don’t really create fire, this isn’t Napalm, incendiary devices start fires in existing infrastructure(s), and this isn’t Hollywood using diesel or gasoline to intentionally create fireballs. So how in the hell does 50 pounds of Plutonium create a fireball? I need to look that up or something.

Just trying to brainstorm a bit with respect to how the galactic and/or universal regulatory agency/agencies may work. In my mind, I’m kinda using vice and vices as a model. Specifically, tobacco, alcohol and drugs. A nice mix seeing as how alcohol can be made by just about anyone, tobacco can be grown by just about anyone, and drugs can be made by just about anyone. And yet, someone else has stepped in and said “OH NO YOU DON’T!!!”. Crashed the party because they want some of the action and/or don’t want someone intruding on their own action. I can see a galactic community maybe doing something similar. More than that, I have to wonder of the Universe itself may have some embedded something which does similar and expresses itself in various ways. Maybe even does so by not expressing itself at all.

‘Tis strange to contemplate the concept of having a knowledge of something that has never existed.

Even more strange to contemplate not only having knowledge of something that has never existed, but also to actively work towards prohibiting this something from ever existing.

I guess you can relate more easily regionally. Like, they may smoke crack in their house, but no one has ever smoked crack in this house, and they never will.

But in thinking in terms of being within the mind of a universal creator, thinking of things that could exist, but you adopt a position of “not on my watch”. Radioactive flying snake goats, for example.

Who the hell needs radioactive flying snake goats?

Well, besides science-fiction authors…they might could make use of radioactive flying snake goats.

Actually, was watching the Cosmos series earlier with a friend, and got to thinking about the orientation of Uranus relative to the rest of the planets. Sagan got to talking about Astrology, mentioned Mars’ influence on himself (or lack thereof) at the time of his own birth, and it got me to thinking about Uranus’ unusual orientation and Pluto’s unusual orbit. Since Astrology seems to be little more than sequencing (to me it does anyway), I got to thinking about that little swirl atop a soft-serve ice cream cone. Sagan had mentioned at some point that if anything ever hit Jupiter, it would simply make a hole in the clouds of Jupiter. Cosmos originally aired in 1980, and thanks to Comet Shoemaker/Levy, we now know this “hole in the clouds” idea not to be so.

Sagan also refers to Pluto as a planet, and we all know that Pluto is in fact not a planet as it has been demoted to…not a planet. What does all this add up to? Well…

SoPi-T, of course

Have thought a bunch about the need to “demote” a planet from the planet category. The only two things I can think of are A) hype, B) commercialism and C) commerce.

That's three things, but who's counting

Anyway, I tend to thing of “ordering” in terms of navigation. Knowing where a something is or where a something will be provides us a pathway to plot intercepts to that something. Pluto is a pain in the ass because sometimes it’s going to be the 9th planet, and sometimes it’s going to be the 8th planet. Delete Pluto from the planetary register, and Uranus can remain firmly entrenched in the 8th spot without having to do-si-do with Pluto. Kinda makes sense. Unless you’re inbound to Sol on the solar plane instead of outbound from Sol. I may lose some of you here if you are unfamiliar with Pluto’s unusual orbit relative to our sun and the other planets.

Ever listen to an expert talking about a something, but this expert sounds like a fucking moron? So which is it? Are they an expert? Or a moron? Someone gave them the expert title just so this person can prove how they don’t deserve the title.

Or it could be there's maybe just some distance between the two of you?

No idea if the space agencies of the world already have existing planetary charts which reorient the numbering of the planets relative to their position of Earth/Terra and/or Sol, but I do know that most science doesn’t appear to put any effort into explaining that Earth/Terra is not always “third stone from the sun”. Not only that, there’s apparently no effort put into explaining that Earth/Terra is sometimes both first rock, and the only rock…1 of 1. Depending on your approach/departure of course. So in that regard, why are the planets not renumbered according to their current placement and orientation within the scope of time?

A: Fear of Astrology

That’s honestly the only thing I can come up with. Religion on religion warfare. Science Vs. Every Other Religion, with a special hate of Astrology. Odd that “mathematics” is said to be the language of science, yet it is utilized only in ways that suits the monks and their methods. Destroying the very portal which allowed you to get to where you are.

^Marco Shuttle – Kinshasa Decadence [EE12]^

Numbers are failing here. “From” is our only perspective. From Sol to Infinity, all from the perspective of 3. Which makes me wonder, that if we were to apply Pi to our solar system, with Sol being “the point”, when and where would Earth/Terra be “3”? Which must be why I’m thinking that accurate mapping/charting of any system would require 360° mapping of all approaches and departures on all three axis, with consideration for a time axis along each physical axis in order to accurately calculate the numeric value of a planet or other body.

And yes, not distance, time

I would think that time would need to supersede distance(s) in order to better identify anything anomalous. Thinking this might also better assist with course alterations. Prolly doesn’t make much sense, but I’m basically stretching Pi in multiple directions relative to an object, and not just and only “around” a round object. Gonna be all kinds of crazy shapes in space, I would think.

A New York doctor’s story: ‘Too many people are dying alone’

Shitloads of people dying alone is nothing new.

^A Certain Kind Of Death – Documentary^

My question is, what does she think should be done about this? I’m sure it involves creation of a process and processes which include(s) delegation. The doctor orders, others comply. If it really bothers you that much, don’t delegate, do. I know…you’re a doctor…far too busy to give care…you’ve got other patients to get to.

Q: Has it ever occurred to you that some people may want to die alone?

A: ó¿ó

There may even be people out there who don’t want to die alone, realize they pretty much have no choice but to die alone, so dying alone is how it’s gonna be. All that said, it just occurs to me that if you create a system, instead of being the system, this something you create loses all of its heart.

One of the more interesting things that Sagan has demonstrated in this Cosmos series is the use of mirrors to demonstrate infinity. Interesting in that it got me to thinking about my own experimentation(s) with mirrors whilst pondering the concept of an end to the iterations being reflective of an end to time. What I mean by that is, if you place yourself between two mirrors, you expect to see infinite reflections in these mirrors, and yet…the iterations stop. You start to count, and you only see sat 5 or ten reflections, and then nothing.

Black

Or maybe even white or some other color. Maybe even a clear something that is nothing.

Q: Would the end of infinite reflections in a mirror be indicative of the end of time?

A: !!!! ?¿ !!!!

More than that, would the end of infinite reflection in a mirror possibly be indicative of a certain location not only in time, but space? Perhaps you are at some unknown end of a solar system. Or maybe nearing the edge of a galaxy. Perhaps too close to a black hole or a quasar or some other celestial body. Maybe even be that you are approaching the end(s) of the Universe. Or, “a” universe. Makes me wonder too about approaches. Like, do we race to the end, or does “the end” race to us. Maybe we meet halfway? A dog can only run so far into the forest.

/shrug
^Mike Parker – Lustration Two (Nor’easter) (A2)^

I gotta take that thought further aloud because I’m thinking them. Primarily, mirrors might should be standard equipment on any/all spacecraft. Perhaps even a chamber full of mirrors casting infinite reflections so as to be indicative of any warping, blurring or distortions in what should otherwise be exactly what we expect to see. This is based on Sagan talking about looking for gaps (red-shift/blue-shift) in order to determine if an object is moving towards or away from your present position. But what about…

Rainbow Shift?

Or even White Shift? Black Shift? More than that, Purple Shift where something may appear to be moving both towards and away at the same time? Wouldn’t this possibly be indicative of a something that is actually moving faster than C/speed of light?

I gotta also wonder about “less standard” types of binary, tertiary, quaternary, etc. shifts. For example, what if red and green are shifting? Lastly, what about ultraviolet or infrared shift(s). Radio? X-ray and gamma? Null or maybe zero shift(s)? A shift should exist in some space, but it does not. There have to be some dark shifts lurking out there. Perhaps even some happening right here.

Is it true that toilet paper in the UK is shitty before you even use it?

^BEACH HOUSE – MYTH^

source

If you think that’s funny, wait till I tell you that I started this writing back on 26 of January, which was long before toilet paper became “funny” in the public eye because of this krono-vyroos nine-erteen thingie. Yep, I wrote one line, saved the doc, closed it, haven’t touched this thing in almost two months.

How goes things with you? Everything OK? Ya’ll all separated from tyranny and out from under the thumb of Mig Mother? Footloose and fancy-free? An independent nation again? I bet there are certain interests trying to twist and gouge the fuck out of you because of all that Brexit business. Distort facts, manipulate truth, spin the fuck out of every scrap of information, hell-bent on punishing you libertarianistic fucks for leaving the family and jumping ship. Gonna make you suffer. Gonna make you pay for what you did. Make you think twice about ever voting for the unpopular stuff ever again. Which, is voting for shiny stuff ever such a good idea? Elected officials are supposed to be representatives, not storerooms, warehouses and/or distribution centers of goodies. Maybe I’m just an idealist. Purist? Realist?

/shrug

Sure as shit am a wanderer.

^Glory And Gore^

Back in January, I had just watched some film on the NFL (American Football) starting to spread out all over the world. It’s gotten so popular in the UK that it would appear the NFL now plays one regular season game per year in the UK. Now, that may not seem to be that big of a deal, but it is. These teams only play 16 regular season games per year, and only half of those 16 are going to be home games. Yep, you heard right…football fans only get their team, at home, 8 times per year:

  • Each game is 60 minutes, but most games last for about 3 hours;
  • 8 times per year * 60 minutes = 480 minutes of official play (8 hours);
  • 8 times per year * 3 hour actual game length = 24 hours (1 day).
So yeah, you get them 1 day per year

Anyway, they were talking about all the preparations which need to be made in order for the teams to make the trip across the Pond, and one of the sticklers was…toilet paper. Like, 300 rolls per team is shipped over months in advance because it would appear that American football players do NOT like the toilet paper (bog rolls) that you guys use over there. This revelation got me to thinking…

Q: How shitty could their toilet paper really be?

A: And is this before, or after wiping?

Hence, I guess the message was that toilet paper in the UK is shitty before you even wipe. Of course, that’s just a spoiled rotten and completely crass American’s perspective.

Is contempt the same thing as jealousy? Wondering here if contempt is some yet unrealized form of jealousy. You saw something, wanted it, went after it, then had some “all that glitters is not gold” kind of moment, and now you are in “DO NOT WANT” mode.

That “familiarity breeds contempt” nonsense really fucks with my head. You get to know someone, and you start to hate them? The statement implies that the one thing we all want (intimate knowledge of a something) is actually the path to something we don’t want. Not only that, it kinda implies that professionals, experts and masters all likely hate what they are good at. Hate what they have striven to know so well.

Dead love?

Strangled to death the one thing you once loved?

Love for future dead things?

Love for things that we know we can: A) acquire; and B) get the fuck rid of down the road?

Squeezed ever bit of adulation and joy out of this wondrous thing, and both you and it are left hollow and hateful? But back on the “path to a something we don’t want” idea, that makes me think of a Bible verse…

‘There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.’

Proverbs 14:12(NKJV)

Even less encouraging to someone halfway across the pond.

I’ve seen some instances of destiny arriving…it ain’t pretty. Not that you’d care prolly. You’re nothing but a greasy spot in the middle of a smoking crater. What do you care? We’ve never been through this before. Others may have, but not us. Do you realize how long it took Cholera to spread after Tambora erupted in 1815? How many epidemics and pandemics it took for this stuff to propagate and spread?

Are you old enough to remember “booster shots”? I dunno if they still do that, but it seems like we had to go in every six months for some, yearly for others, and the rest were on some 2, 3, 5, 7 year cycle or something like that. Was just sitting here thinking about a large event getting things rolling, and booster shot kind of events sustaining the primary event. Not that our planet is a living thing or anything.

Just thinking

Plenty of saucy talk on my Twitter feed on the topic of this nCoV-2019/COVID19/Coronavirus thingie. Loads of people taking the opportunity to tell others what to do. Some speak as if they know exactly what to do and have loads of experience with this kind of stuff, but I’m kinda skeptical because: A) we’ve never been through anything like this; and B) we’ve not been through this that is happening right now.

To be fair tho, much of this acerbity and scorn is likely just some people’s way of asking questions. They’re unsure of how to ask the questions they have, whom to ask, or maybe even questioning themselves as to the right questions to ask. As a result, lots of anger. Lots of contempt. Lots of lashing out. And of course, lots of opportunists trying to get others to sing their tune, and all in the same key.

^The Ultimate Showdown (with MP3 ♫)^

Some of the breeding contempt stuff makes sense. You gotta get rid of this something that you have become attached to, so what better way to do that than to brew up a festering cauldron of contemptuous poison to murder the living shit out of this whatever it is. Prolly why we break things in the manner(s) that we do.

(Usually, completely manner-free)

“Things” many times do for us things that we’d rather not be doing.

EX: Lawnmowers. No one wants to mow the lawn. Hence, when the lawnmower malfunctions or displeases us in some way? We lose our shit and beat the hell outta the lawnmower with whatever is readily available. Our contempt for mowing, manifests as rage when this task we hate cannot be complete, and that lifeless hunk of metal and plastic becomes our lightning rod.

Plenty of other professions and trades which require lots of contempt in order to perform the job with precision. Not gonna tell you any of the specifics that I’m thinking of right now, but that’s mainly because you’re smart, you’ve got your own life, and I’m sure you can think of plenty of jobs which require contempt. You can prolly also think of some permanent fixtures of all kinds which require contempt. Maybe even some really abstract ideas which require contempt.

Can’t be any hate because hate and contempt are gonna be pretty much the same things, where contextual jealousness has crept in due to some knowing.

I ask someone for their CV, and they lick my mouth instead of handing me a resume? Which reminds me, anyone familiar with Chicken-Pox Parties? Chicken-Pox Playtime Gatherings? Dunno if they’re still a thing, but they used to be. All kinds of bugchasers in the world.

The home of America’s Team is shutting down. So I hear anyway. I know someone who is being partially furloughed, and two others who have been told to prepare themselves for the places they work to be shut down indefinitely. Been keeping somewhat up to date on all the airline cancellations and even some suspensions. I can only imagine that much of the shipping industry is doing the same or similar. This is like 9/11 times a thousand or something.

Actually, I was just outside after hearing about all the closures, and I got to listening. I’m basically in the crotch of two major roadways, and there’s pretty much always a roar coming from those busy roads from all of the traffic. I listened…the roar is there. Got me to thinking about who is going where, and why so many if loads and loads of places are really shutting down. Got me to thinking about…

September 12th of 2001

Then September 13th of 2001

September 14th of 2001.

Quiet. Very quiet. Spooky quiet

No planes, no air traffic at all, no contrails, reduced traffic, lots of self-isolation. Loads of fear, loads of uncertainty, plenty of confusion, and some boiling anger. It occurred to me that maybe when I step outside, and no longer hear the roar of hundreds upon hundreds of tires on pavement? No lingering engine roar from all the aircraft in the air? Maybe even a silence close to that of 18+ years ago? Welp, that might be indicative that the shit has hit the fan.

It stormed all night last night

Yesterday, I was pondering whether Uranus and Neptune can be considered twins. This evening, I see this.

^We May Have Figured Out Why Neptune and Uranus Are So Different^

giphy-2

Not suggesting that twins need to be the same or anything. I’ve known some twins that were quite different. Even have known some identical twins that were way different. Just wondering how the “twins” nomenclature has wandered off into more abstract realms, and whether or not the term is even applicable.

In terms of entanglement and/or spooky action, you move something here, something there moves also. What I never hear anyone talk about, is what happens if someone moves the something there. Does the something here still move? Gotta be some kind of weighted something that maybe dictates whether a companion particle or object, or whatever, emulates and mirrors its opposite’s behavior. Some observer effect kind of something, ‘cept more participatory maybe?

Which makes me wonder how participatory observation is. Does an observer do any kind of work that can be measured? Ever heard the term “human shield”? How much work does a human shield do.

If they absorb a blast of radiation which minimizes your own exposure, or take a shotgun blast which was meant for you, or maybe have some blame assigned to them that was actually yours? Sounds to me like some work is being done there. They ain’t doing much of anything, and yet, they are somehow doing a shitload of work. How is this possible? Maybe it’s an adjustment in the conditionals based on a contextual (and somewhat arbitrary) result. Adjusting outcome based upon a specific chain of events, all after-the-fact.

Speaking of “after-the-fact”, that’s another thing that’s been burning my brain recently…

Thinking…

predicated upon the benefit of hindsight…

with no consideration(s) to hindsight.

That’s a difficult thought to express in text. Lemme try again…

Thinking and asserting without acknowledging having the benefit of hindsight

Not giving the past any credit.

EX: Samuel Morse – co-inventor of the Telegraph and co-creator of Morse Code. As a person in the now, I can say:

“Everything Morse and the people he worked with did makes total sense to me. I have no idea why they had such a difficult time creating such a simple contraption and its simple code.”

Firstly, they were moving backwards to forwards, and not forwards to backwards like we in the now. Secondly, prolly plenty of people in the world who could not even come close to creating a telegraph machine right now, nor are they likely to be able to understand Morse code. With that in mind, how can someone be so cavalier about diminishing someone’s achievements just because: A) these breakthroughs came long ago; and B) the technology is archaic by today’s standards? They put in all the hard work, did all the figuring, taught the rest of us what they learned, and we benefit. Hence, we can be some ungrateful little shits. But invention isn’t really what I’m thinking about here. I’m thinking in little less concrete terms than some tangible something.

What worked before, may not necessarily work now. Not evaluating your reliance upon, and the benefit of hindsight with respect to your decision-making, could be catastrophic. May be a good idea to evaluate whether or not you are you relying upon precepts in your decision making processes that you don’t even realize are there. And I’m not necessarily thinking about identifying things that we take for granted or givens. We rely upon these “given” types of things (I would think anyway) based upon or own personal experience(s) and our own personal usage(s). They are tried and tested, and others we interact with tend to also use and be aware of these types of things.

What I am thinking about here is not being dismissive of the possibility that your thought processes contain hidden elements that you didn’t even realize were there. And I’m talking foundational kinds of things. Things that, were they absent, you’d (potentially) be a completely different person, making completely different decisions based upon completely different thought processes.

This one is a mind-bender. I'm struggling more than usual here

Within one’s own self…how does one locate some hidden or potentially non-existent something, when this something is providing no discernible data as to its presence, its location or its function? How does one know when this something has been located, and lastly how does one determine what this something even is. Is the answer…

Time?
^Wannabe – Spice Girls (Vintage “Andrews Sisters” Style Cover) by Postmodern Jukebox^

Had another thought here regarding locating things that aren’t there, but I lost it.

Maybe we aren’t skilled in finding certain things because we never look.

Me? I’m still searching for bottom.

Seeing all kinds of crazy shit on the way down.

This thing may have no bottom.

I may be searching forever.

Makes sense.

Makes total and complete sense.

It occurred to me tonight that most Twitter users aren’t following you, they’re following themselves. Even if you follow them, and they don’t follow you, they are following themselves, via you. Same goes for every other social media something I guess.

Speakers in the wheels of the bespoke

I woulda said “spokes in wheels of the bespoke”, but there is this odd decay or atrophic kind of something going on there. The main says something, you say something similar, those who hear you say something similar to what you said, and the message decays from there, necessitating a return to the source for the original message. So yeah, by following someone, you are nothing more than a medium for attracting those way down the chain to some source. Almost like a missionary. ‘Cept a follower.

Vacuum decay: the ultimate catastrophe

Did you know there’s a something called Vulvovaginal Atrophy?

Atrophic Vaginitis

I guess some women with large(r) labia can’t wait that long and are getting their stuff shaved off.

/shudder

Once you’ve gotten those already sexy lips shaved down to what you think is sexy (or popular/trendy at the time), I wonder what they do with the stuff that was removed. Speaking of, heard from a certain somewhere this morning that San Francisco has been closed. Shut down.

Sealed off. The whole city

LA appears to be doing the same. No idea how accurate this information is, but no doubt this is some old school shit goin’ on up in this hizzay. The walls are already going up, now all we need is some massive and impenetrable gates.

This person also told me that all elective surgeries are being cancelled. I guess unless you’re bleeding out of your eyes, having a heart-attack, have suffered some kind of major trauma, or are infected with nCoV-2019, you are unlikely to receive medical assistance over the next 2 to 3 months.

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.

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?

Paging

FUCK!!! That's not it either

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?

BINGO!!!

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.

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.

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.

Wiggly

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.

Fair enough 

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.

You know what has been completely absent from my life recently?

New films

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…

is you

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.

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.

Le sigh 

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.

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).

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.

Rubbish
^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.

Apols! for the two day break in this 30 Day Song Challenge, Dear Reader. I did manage to drag my snot-riddled carcass into work at the Tower on Monday morning, but was promptly sent home…

*The chorus is applicable, Clicky, but the song has a different meaning…*

… But, now I’m on the mend and feeling at least half human again, we can finally get on with the post. No suggestion from Poppy Sweet Pea this time, I’m afraid, but Leggy is provided an absolute corker of a song with many meanings…

^The Damned – Curtain call – The Best Version Sound & Video^

… So, let’s crack on, Dear Reader. Enjoy! 😀

Day 20: songs that have many meanings

Cade’s first song pick…

This is potentially an interesting topic with a lot of latitude. Let’s us start off with something obvious.

^If You See Kay _ APRIL WINE^

Roob’s first song pick…

Considering the unexpected war-like start to the new year…

kate spade black swan bag

*/lights up… Yeah, the US bagging the Iranian General in Iraq… /drags…  was a bit black swanish, Clicky… /streams smoke…*

… my first pick is a song about a symbol that has different meanings…

*That’s fantastic… /smokes… Whipple the gliding ace should be the name of a swan…*

… To me, it will always mean ‘The Young Ones’ 😀

^MOTÖRHEAD – Ace of Spades on “The Young Ones”^

Cade’s second song pick…

This one qualifies in a less “tongue-in-cheek” kind of way. I’ve thought of using this song several times during the course of this writing. Anyway, I’ve written about this song in previous writings + the album the song appeared on + the album cover = a young mind wandering to some distant and strange places. I honestly have no idea the scope of the places my mind went went I was 7/8 years old, laying on the floor, and listening to this song through headphones while staring at the album cover.

I get the feeling that you don’t always need drugs to “trip“, and the album ‘A Question Of Balance‘ by The Moody Blues is quite possibly one of the strangest ways to get mind, body, spirit and soul to places far afield. The music is…well, it ain’t really Rock-N-Roll…let’s just put it that way. I wouldn’t consider it Progressive either. At the same time, it’s too heavy for me to consider it either Classical or Folk. It’s like some Frankensteined experimental blending of a lot of different musical styles and elements, all joined together to tell some individual narratives in a single tale. And, it’s some pretty fucking good music.

^The Moody Blues- Question^

Roob’s second song pick…

Until 2014, I had never even heard of this next song. It was completely new to Thoughtful Man also, which was a surprise, as he’s a music buff and a collector of songs. Apparently Beatles fans are still arguing amongst themselves as to its meaning, but to me? It means…

man well know nothing

*I couldn’t have put it better myself, Clicky… /flicks ash…*

^Glass Onion (Remastered 2009)^

Cade’s third song pick…

Would anyone…choose…to go to hell? Am a bit older now, so what “hell” actually is appears to be not so clearly defined as it was when I was younger. The Greeks appear to have some thoughts on the place, as did the Scandinavians, as do a lot of cultures, so what is this place. Really. What, is, hell? Why, in the hell, would anyone want to go there?

Being textually clever and creative about your own station in life can be dangerous. It may just get you damned. Like say, a rock-n-roll singer and lyricist writing about their experiences within their chosen profession, and writing metaphorically to relate what the experience is actually like. Willingly agreeing to subject your body to all manner of abuses that the job requires. Away from home constantly. On the road, staying in bad motels/hotels, eating crappy food that constantly makes you sick, and everyone wants a piece of you. Loads of investors throwing money at you to do your thing, but they get their money back first, and you get what’s leftover. As this job eats away at you, a black vortex forms on the horizon, it’s pulling you in, and there’s no escaping the inevitable.

This job ...is going... to kill you

It’s almost like, oh…I dunno, working in some place that processes plutonium. Or maybe digging coal or diamonds or copper out of the ground. Maybe you work on and around dangerous machinery. Maybe your job is physically demanding, and you are one single injury away from complete destruction. Maybe you work behind the register in a shop where some idiot can waltz in at any moment with a weapon and take your life over a few bucks. Maybe you work in some building that is loaded with Asbestos, or has lead pipes providing you water, or the walls are covered in lead paint. Maybe you sit on your ass all day in a chair that was not designed for you, at a desk that does not accommodate you, wearing clothing of a type that is not comfortable and/or aesthetically pleasing for you, banging away on a keyboard that was not designed for you, and staring at a radiation emitting device that was not meant to be stared at for long periods of time, all day every day. Any of that might be almost like…choosing, to go, to hell.

Comes down to morals and ethics. The “honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay” kinds of bullshit. Clean money Vs dirty money. Honest money acquired by honest means.

lolz...ok, if you say so

Did you even notice that Roob has had to post this late because she’s laid up sick? I mean, whatever she has must be a doozy because she was sick most all last week and STILL had to take time off this week because the shit appears to be getting worse and worse. What do you think her employer thinks about her having to take time off from work on the tail-end of a week’s vacation? What kinds of stresses does that cause on both her and her place of employment? And why is that? Because scammers and scumbags have taken advantage of sick leave and other types of authorized absences? The employers retaliate by taking advantage of the situation and making authorized absences something that employees utilize at their own peril. Or at least, its that way here in the US. Taking a sick day may as well be volunteering to be put on each and every shit-list your employer may have.

Performance Reviews? FUCKED!
Advancement Opportunities? FUCKED!
Employee loyalty? SUSPECT!
Job dedication? SUSPECT!
Office gossip and rumor? OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
Crap jobs, shit detail(s) and dead-end or impossible projects? THEY’RE ALL YOURS!
Working environment/workplace morale? WE’RE ON THE HIGHWAY TO HELL BABY!

There’s always loads of layers to a single something. Lots of angles, lots of interests, lots of players playing in a shitload of games. Guess it just depends on how deep we as individuals are prepared to dive.

^Rush-The Trees (Lyrics)^

Roob’s third song pick…

*”The future of the future, is the present, and this is something people are terrified of”… /stubs butt… What’s he mean by that, Clicky, and what the fuck does it have to do with my third song?*

*The Royal Oak! …/pats snout… Fuck knows how I managed to get in there each week, Clicky – I looked 12!*

The final word to Cade…

Was cruising YouTube last night, and stumbled across a debate from 1979 where John Cleese and Sarah Palin‘s dad were debating with Bishop of Southwark Mervyn Stockwood and “noted Christian” Malcolm Muggeridge on some show called “Friday Night, Saturday Morning“. In truth, I don’t know if Michael Palin is actually Sarah Palin‘s father, but I guess it’s possible. Anyway, these four and the host were “debating” the movie Monty Python’s Life Of Brian. Here are the four parts to the debate if you wanna viddy for yourself.

All I could think about whilst watching this “debate” was the metaphorical nature of the movie (which I have only recently seen myself for the first time) and also the metaphorical nature of the tales that Jesus wove. Just seems like Jesus/Yeshua or whatever his name was, spent a lot of time trying to get those around them to think. Yes, also to feel, but you don’t spin these metaphorical parables without a desire to get your listeners to think. Inspire them to explore. To relate. And yes, to question. Maybe we sometimes get “the act of questioning” wrong because our ideas on what is/is not respectful become skewed and warped by the safety of the known. The knowledgeable, the wise and the learned “know”, so why discover anything for myself? Just go to the experts, problem solved. Someone tells you “this is the right way, and the only way, so says God” and you are likely going to believe them. I mean…God is on their side, right? Who in their right mind is going to contest God or anyone on God’s side? That must be the right way to go…right?

Day 21 tomorrow, Dear Reader, and Cade and I will be mulling over songs we like with a person’s name their titles. So until then, have a Song ❤

^Angie Baby – Helen Reddy^

30-Day Song Challenge: Colours!

*Good choice, Clicky, thanks…*

I saw a tweet the other day, Dear Reader…

… and thought it might be fun for Cade and I to play along here at the LoL. Thankfully Cade agreed 😀

We’re starting with Day 1 with this post, and we’ve given ourselves permission to select 3 songs each. You, too, can play along, Dear Reader. Just leave your favourite song with a colour in its title, in comments at the bottom of the post.

Ready?

proceed

*Not you, Clicky. You were born ready…*

Day 1: A song you like with a colour in the title

Cade’s first song pick…

Sorry, but the very first song that popped into my head upon reading the Day 1 requirements, was Colours by Cabaret Voltaire. It does indeed have a “color” in the title, albeit the spelling is in Limeese. But when Roob requested that I produce a song with an actual color in the title, Blue Bell Knoll by Cocteau Twins jumped right the fuck to the front of the line. Track 1 off the album of the same name, it grabbed me from the moment I put the cassette in the tape player and the tune started to play. What a great tune. It builds, and builds, and builds, then…thunder. Most people would likely NOT equate any of Cocteau Twin’s music with thunder, but the ending of Blue Bell Knoll is just that…thunder. Stunningly incredible track, and one that leads into one of the best albums I’ve ever heard.

Blue Bell is a brand of ice cream here in Texas. Pretty sure it’s sold everywhere now, but used to, pretty sure it was a Texas Only brand. It’s good stuff, they are famous for their “gold rim” line of products, and they make some astonishingly evil special flavors, although certain special flavors can be a bit pricey and also hard to find. We also have a famous “knoll” here in Texas, although it is a grassy knoll, so prolly green or brown at certain times of the year. With all that in mind, and from a synchromystical and/or synchronautical standpoint, is that why Blue Bell Knoll sticks out in my head? Cocteau Twins are a Scottish band with an English bass player. I first heard Blue Bell Knoll when I was living in Maryland and working in Virginia. I am not a Dallas native nor am I a Texan. I know fuckall about the Kennedy assassination, and have always got the feeling that nobody else knows anything about it either. I do know that Blue Bell Knoll is a great tune, and also a great album.

<Cocteau Twins – Blue Bell Knoll>

Roob’s first song pick…

I can’t remember the first time I heard this song. It may have been on the radio or on TV…

… either way, Donovan’s ‘Mellow Yellow’ is a classic, and of all the songs with ‘yellow’ in their title, it was the first one to pop into my head.

<Donovan Mellow Yellow {Stereo) Remastered>

Cade’s second song pick…

Speaking of knolls and green brown grasses of home , my head started to flood with song titles after I moved passed Blue Bell Knoll. Black Diamond by Kiss and Green Manalishi by Judas Priest kinda popped into my head at the same time. Probably because I used to work sound for a band that used to cover both of those songs, but I’ve decided to go with Green Manalishi because I admit to never being that much into Kiss’s music. The same cannot be said of Judas Priest’s music. They were one of those bands who made music that garnered the “what the hell is this?!?!?” types of reactions of both good and bad, and I personally loved the hell out of it.

To my knowledge, Judas Priest never actually recorded Green Manalishi. Way back, it was a rare track that you could only get via their “Unleashed In The East” live album. This may be their way of getting around certain lawful entanglements, as I later learned that Green Manalishi is actually a cover of a song by Fleetwood Mac. I dunno, maybe Fleetwood Mac gave Priest permission to play it live, with a stipulation that they could never do a studio recording of it? No idea, and ain’t gonna look it up either. Found a copy of them playing a tune that was for a long time a staple of their live set, and it’s at the very same US Festival from 1983 where Van Halen earned $1.5 million for a single show.

<Judas Priest US Festival 1983 The Green Manalishi>

Roob’s second song pick…

I was going to put ‘Little Red Corvette’ in here but there is another Prince song with a colour in it’s title that means a whole lot more to me, even though it’s not a particular fav. I speak of course of ‘Purple Rain’ which was played on a continuous loop one rainy Tuesday evening back in 1984. Mother and I were playing for our local pub’s ladies darts team at an away match at The Black Horse in Deptford, sarf London. We lost but of all the matches I played for The Crown in my misbegotten youth, it’s the only one I really remember.

Here’s Prince singing Purple Rain, in the rain, for the best Superb Owl half time performance EVER!

<Prince – Purple Rain live at Super Bowl XLI HD>

Cade’s third song pick…

After thinking about songs like ‘Pink Orange Red’ by Cocteau Twins, ‘Slick Black Cadillac’ by Quiet Riot, ‘Pink Cadillac’ by Bruce Springsteen, ‘Little Red Corvette’ by Prince, ‘Nights In White Satin’ by The Moody Blues, ‘Purple People Eater’ by Sheb Wooley, ‘Goldrush’ by Yello, ‘Black Celebration’ by Depeche Mode and ‘White Knuckles’ by Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel, ‘Silver Wings’ by Merle Haggard jumped in there. Prolly because I thought of ‘I’ll Go To My Grave Loving You’ by The Statler Brothers, which made me think of Don Williams, which made me think of ‘Thunder and Lightning’ by Gamma, which made me think of ‘Silver Wings’ by Merle Haggard. Dunno why I was always under the impression that Don Williams sang ‘Silver Wings’ and not Merle Haggard. Lots going on in the 1970’s tho. Music was pretty much my only outlet, and I could not get enough of it.

I think part of the problem is that I was allowed to listen to Don Williams, but was not allowed to listen to Merle Haggard. Merle Haggard was a bit of a naughty boy, or at least, had that reputation. That said, I was allowed to listen to ‘Silver Wings’, loved that track, and is one of those tunes that I listened to over and over again. The watery and ever-present reverb on the vocals always fascinated me. Gives the vocals this deep and soulful longing without being overbearing nor getting muddy nor clouded. I can recall laying on the floor with the headphones on, and marveling at how they achieved this effect. Now, I could go down to the local drainage ditch, walk myself into the huge underground flood drain, yell, and get somewhat of the same echoing type of effect as my voice disappeared down the tunnel only to return from the darkness. But how the hell did they do it? Surely they weren’t setting up a recording studio in a storm drain and recording that way…were they? Anyway, I loved airplanes, wanted to be a pilot, and also longed to travel. None of those things seemed to actually be on my horizon, but this song is chock full of imagery that can take you all kinds of places…should you care to travel. It did me.

<Merle Haggard – Silver Wings>

Roob’s third song pick…

This is my favourite song with a colour in it’s title. I bought it as a 12″ from the old HMV shop near Bond Street in my lunch hour, again in 1984. I recorded it onto tape in order to listen to it in Dad’s car. He managed a chauffeur company in London at the time, so drove Mother, sis and me each day to and from our place of employment, the John Lewis department store in Oxford Street. Eventually he came to like it 😉  and I have never taken cocaine.

<White Lines (Don’t Don’t Do It) Original Long Version – Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel>

The final word from Cade…

So, Blue, Green and Silver, which I guess makes…what….aquamarine? Turquoise? The hexidecimal appears to be #0095C9, and the RGB is 0, 149, 201.

In a RGB color space, hex #0095c9 is composed of 0% red, 58.4% green and 78.8% blue. Whereas in a CMYK color space, it is composed of 100% cyan, 25.9% magenta, 0% yellow and 21.2% black. It has a hue angle of 195.5 degrees, a saturation of 100% and a lightness of 39.4%. #0095c9 color hex could be obtained by blending #00ffff with #002b93. Closest websafe color is: #0099cc.

 Interesting. Some kind of clarity via the mud in my head.
