Missive From ‘Merica: One, II, Free…

 

Cade sent through a missive last night, Dear Reader, but I didn’t have time to post it because we decided to remote viewed the John Berger ‘Ways of Seeing’ series…

*Oh it’s fucking fantastic viewing, Clicky… /lights up… It explains you, for a start…*

*And Selfie Sounds Like Sophie… /drags… The first episode even demonstrates a ‘sync’…*

*/snorts smoke… As Cade would say, Clicky, ‘Tru Dat’…*

*/rolls eyes…*

Addiction provides belonging. A belonging.

Be Long In G

Be long in gravity? Is that another way of saying “live long and prosper”? Anyway, an addiction provides for inclusion, therefore, addiction provides belonging. This psychology stuff is easy as pie.

Mmmmm...pie
^Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Swae Lee – Close To Me (Official Video)^

I used to think of important stuff.

But then, I met you

You’re all that is important to me now, therefore, all I think about, is you.

Dekatherm

Keep that definition in the back your head.

I still love you more than anything, and you’re still very important to me, but we’ll need to keep the above info in the backs of our heads to get through this.

K?
^Imagine Dragons – Natural^

How was your Easter? Everything go eggsactly according to plan?

I'm such a ham sometimes

That reminds me…do you think that maybe the time we go without a certain something is proportionate to the total amount of time we have? Like, if we do without sex for an entire week, we both get a week added to our lives. I dunno how we’d ever know that we actually got a week added tho. As far as I know, the only thing certain would be that we went for an entire week without getting freaky. I wonder if we were lonely.

^Route 94 – My Love ft. Jess Glynne (Official Music Video)^

Saw something recently that put forth the notion that loneliness was directly related to the amount of time that we have. Yeah…the amount of time we have to live. You get lonely, you die. Of course, the same people said that loneliness was just as deadly as smoking, so I gotta doubt the conclusions they are arriving at. Smoking? Smoking what exactly? Smoking a ham? Smoking crack-cocaine? Smoking the tires on a race car? Smoking synthetic poisonous toads? Could you fucks be a little more specific as to what type of smoking it is that is that you are suggesting is so deadly. And while you’re at it, stop pairing-up and compounding future tragedies. You’re making me all paranoid by making me wonder if you’re on some insurance company’s payroll.

^Loneliness epidemic as deadly as smoking | 60 Minutes Australia^

We better start dating soon. Otherwise, we’re gonna die of loneliness.

Weird concept to ponder on this side of Lent, eh?

Going without...will kill you

Let’s get naked, and soon.

Did you know the guitar player kid from the movie ‘School of Rock’ was recently arrested for stealing guitars? Of course, if it was just some average everyday someone, you wouldn’t know because the story would be buried in the section that prints the local police logs.

I'm seeing all kinds of stuff

BTW, I’ve not watched this next vid in it’s entirety…only the first 2 minutes.

There appear to be at least 4 episodes.

If anyone wants to watch it with me, hint hint, lemme know.

I can be found on Twitter.

^John Berger / Ways of Seeing , Episode 1 (1972)^

Was watching a video yesterday, and there was some less-than-obvious types of evidence in the video indicative that one of the individuals might have recently been participating with opiates. This “evidence” was reflective of kinda an on/off relationship type of thing with opiates, but participating nonetheless. Got me to thinking about not only belonging, but also about inclusion in conflicts.

List If Ongoing Armed Conflicts

Over the past few weeks, been a lot of noise here and there about opiates. I’m guessing maybe some of the numbers are down, and “they” are needing some renewed interest. I’ve pretty much ignored the topic til this morning when I opened my web browser and saw this on Google’s main page…

“We can all help prevent opioid abuse. Dispose of old & unneeded medications safely.”

They were kind enough to provide a link too.

I wonder how much applied pressure it takes to inspire me to write about a certain something? Do I need to see something one time? Twenty times? Five-hundred and seventy-three times?

^BTS (방탄소년단) ‘작은 것들을 위한 시 (Boy With Luv) feat. Halsey’ Official MV^

As I was pondering and writing the above, it occurred to me that yesterday was 4 years and 10 months of me being off pain meds. 23 June 2014 to 23 April 2019 is 4 years 10 months, and this particular whatever is my 123rd blog post written for Roob and her LoL. Does 23 mean anything? Jim Carey sure seemed to think so. Do any numbers mean anything? Or is my subconscious mind grinding on me in the background as my conscious mind tries to make sense of it all during my lucid periods, and I’m too stupid/incompetent to understand what is going on.

Q: Does my own being ever attempt to interrupt my own thought-process(es)?

A: ¿?¿

Yeah, like…is there something embedded within me, that sometimes tosses a banana peel in my own path? Is that how commercial advertising works? I prolly lost you there.

^Calvin Harris – My Way (Official Video)^

I just got paid, I’m on my way to Best Buy to pick up that new Ariana Grande CD, but while I’m on the way to the store, I hear an advertisement on the radio that One Direction has released a new Box Set that includes all 32 albums they’ve made over the past 40 years.

I fucking love One Direction

Is there some mystical force at work here trying to direct my purchasing power towards One Direction’s box set instead of Ariana Grande’s new CD? Think of it like this…how in the FUCK did I start off writing about “belonging”, only to wind up here?

Kinda strange...eh? 

Who are these forces competing for my attention(s) and/or affection(s)? I wonder what else they could possibly want. I ain’t got much.

Speaking of distant connections…does today feel like a Wednesday to you? Prolly not, because there’s no telling when you are reading this. Its Wednesday for me, but all I have to do is write this crap. I then send it to RooBeeDoo, and no telling when she’ll actually find the time to format and post it. No telling when you’ll find the time to read it. Lots of work involved in doing not much of anything. Anyway, whatever century it is that you are reading this, hope you are doing ok.

/me shrugs

Sorry dude…I didn’t know. Or if I did know, I forgot. A song 4U.

^CABARET VOLTAIRE ‘Colours’ official music video Mute Records [HQ Audio]^

You think it possible that expansion/contraction could play a role in plate tectonics/continental drift? As far as I know, science provides for celestial bodies accumulating mass, but doesn’t really say much about how the same body would lose mass. I guess that’s why they don’t spend too much time thinking about changes in dimensions, except in the case(s) of a change or changes in mass.

That makes me question distance(s). Would the moon/Luna appear to be getting closer if it increased it’s own diameter? How would we even know if our moon’s diameter increased/decreased? Is that one poor lonely bastard at NASA still bouncing lasers off of mirrors on the surface of the moon every day to gauge distance(s)? If so, how accurate are those readings?

So yeah, I’m thinking about expansion/contraction of a planetary body, and how that might result in the movement of a continent.

^Zedd – Beautiful Now (Official Music Video) ft. Jon Bellion^

I realize we’ve quite the array of satellites and scientific stations here and there doing all kinds of measuring, and all kinds of people are analyzing that data whilst looking for this and that. But what are they finding? Are they gonna share that information? They work for the public, so they are going to do what is best for the public good, which means the majority…

right? 

You think the majority of people who are doing something incorrectly, want to know if they are doing something incorrectly?

Natural Gas Measurements: Volume, Heating Value and Gas Richness

Is it possible for a continent to expand/shrink, without really going anywhere? Subduction and uplift seem to be the kings of creation according to science, but what about expansions and contractions with no real change in mass? Science still operates on the assumption that water does not/cannot contract. But what if it can, and does, but all of your equations are based upon a set of theoretical dynamics which state that water cannot compress? Fuck it.

Can't build reliable economic models on “what if?”

X: You aren’t wanting to have any convos in this one?

Cade: No. I would think that inclusion of a convo in this particular whatever might seem like…

Z: It’s not always me.

Cade: Says you.

Cade: Who’s right?

0: Someone.

Cade: OK, so maybe they aren’t “cutting me off” as much as…

Cade: Yes, that too.

X: Internalization of an external stimulus is a strange concept to ponder, no?

Cade: It is indeed.

X: Ghosts of long past events.

Cade: That too.

X: But you had not thought of that.

Cade: I had not. A constant flow of was, a constant flow of is, and a constant flow of will be.

X: Messy.

Cade: It certainly can be.

B: Speaking of, what was that you just thought about with respect to robotics?

Cade: Welp, that pic above where the lady appears to be conditioning the child to eat by beating the fuck out of a stuffed bear with a shoe?

B: I’m listening…

Cade: Not to change the subject, but wasn’t there a character in the movie Armageddon named…Bear?

B: No idea. I want to know what you were thinking about regarding the internalization of external…concepts.

Cade: OK. Basically, if there is a “ghost in the machine”…

0: We put it there.

Cade: Something like that, yes.

X: Contrary to individuality and/or a particular individual.

Cade: Correct. Every widget that comes off the assembly line isn’t the same.

T: You think they are all different?

Cade: They are all different.

T: Don’t even go there. I can see what you were just thinking, and I really don’t think you want to go there.

A: Where was he going?

Cade: Nice.

A: You’re welcome.

Z: He was going to try to explain some flows in time where more or less identical somethings, result in radically different outcomes.

Cade: Yes. Unit “A” may perform exactly as designed for for 500 years, and unit “B” may perform not very well at all for 5 minutes.

Z: And yet both contribute something valuable to the process and its processes.

Cade: Something like that.

X: Irregularities like that might result in some uneven flows.

Cade: If things didn’t break, most industry would have no reason to exist.

X: But if that’s the case, where are we going.

Cade: No idea.

X: What if “The Forbidden Fruit” actually was an apple.

Cade: I honestly don’t give a fuck. Would be funny if “the fruit” was watermelon tho.

X: Or lemons?

Cade: Or tomatoes.

0: You mean, Vincherapines?

Cade: Those too. But you gotta admit that a watermelon tree would be an interesting thing to see.

X: No I don’t.

Cade: lolz…fair enough.

T: Congrats on not having any convos in this.

Cade: Thanks.

I found that image above when looking for “on the beach” gifs. Was thinking about the “nutrition” that we get from the sun, and “tanning” didn’t get me much cept for boobies and tanning spray memes. Figured I’d give “on the beach” a try since Brizdaz (Darren) over at the Just Watching The Wheels Go Round blog was recently talking about reading Nevile Shute‘s book “On The Beach“. That book is about…(drum roll)…the end of the world…via nuclear war. I personally have only read the first few chapters of that book, but there’s a submarine in it.

‘Vitamin E has a natural affinity to the skin but the amount of Vitamin E is reduced in the skin when exposed to sunlight. … UV radiation from the sun is what causes us to tan, and helps the body to make its own vitamin D, yet exposure to the rays also cause an array of negative reactions in the skin.’

Source = Google – 1 July 2018

So reading that, it appears that when we go out into the sun, we don’t need as much Vitamin E in the skin. Or maybe it just can’t live there anymore because of this new neighbor? Our body prolly starts recalling and hoarding that Vitamin E shit as soon as the sun starts to kiss our flesh, in order to seduce our precious bodily fluids and their contents. Maybe Gen. Jack D. Ripper was right about being sapped…

just wrong about who was sapping us?

Vitamin E

The reason that I wanted to go there, is because whatever it was that I thought of last night was one of those more “off the wall” types of concepts. A state of mind/being that we appear to not think about much.

Nope…nothing on that list rings a bell either. What in the FUCK was it that I thought about last night while standing there taking a piss? Oh…had I not mentioned that I was taking a piss whenever I thought of whatever it was that I thought of?

Well, I was.

What’s Your State of Mind?

So yeah…what choo think? Think you can help me remember whatever it is that I forgot?

^Underworld – Scribble^

I love the color orange. But you wouldn’t know that…would you? I mean, I don’t know you, and you don’t know me, and I prolly just prejuiced you by using that pic above…

 Prejuiced? 

I meant PREJUDICED…not prejuiced.

Anyway…yeah…orange…one of my fave colors. Green, Orange, Purple if I had to pick faves, but not with respect to cars. White or Yellow would be my first choice. Black with respect to most clothes, or plain pastels. Something really loud in blue, yellow or red in clothes is OK too.

I can't remember what I was gonna say here. 

OH! Did you know, that on Imgur where I found that image? The image was named:

“ORANGE STEALING WHORES“.

I wonder what that is all about? Seems not very nice to assume someone sexual proclivities based on a gender. What goes good with orange juice?

^Mango – Friday Coffee (Paul Keeley Remix)^

I’ve heard it said by some that “orange is the new black”…but I’ve no idea what that means. So let’s think about this kid above. She’s likely seeing something in her head as to what SHOULD be transpiring, and what she needs to do in order to facilitate the successful operation of this activity, but what is actually happening is something quite different.

Must be new to her or something. 

Am I saying shit that “goes without saying” here? Of course some little kid isn’t going to be a world champion hula-hooper on what is likely her first try. So, let’s say that’s so.

Q: Are you willing to spend the time teaching her and helping her to become a world champion hula-hooper?

A: ??? 

Gonna take a lot of time, she’s eventually gonna grow up, and will likely have a bunch of creeps oogling her as she performs/demonstrates her talent. Better crush her dreams right now. Better sooner than later…eh?

So yeah, maybe orange IS the new black. I wonder what color “patience” might be? Whatever color that is, I wonder what color it is when absent? Clear? If so, and the same could be said of other colors, that sure would muddy the concept of clarity.

^Roald Velden – Time Flies By (Original Mix)^

When the sun sets, maybe it’s that orange seems to blend well with the black, and is one of the last distinguishable colors that we see. Black and orange do indeed mesh well, and maybe that’s one of the magical blendings that allows us to see the darkness in the way(s) that we do.

I’ve run long tho, and really don’t want to get to rambling about light/dark right now. Not trying to be insensitive, but I’ve got needs too. So does Roob.

Red universe Frank published a new post on MEROVEE yesterday, called ‘His Story‘. It’s a cracking read, Dear Reader, so I left a link, below the line, to a LoL post called ‘Epic Rap Battles of His Story‘. And as it’s actually from the past, it is, ipso facto, history 😉 Cue Selfie…

The majority of my purple shambles have been ‘disappeared’, along with the rest of Sync Miss For Him, so it’ll to fun to look at the colour afresh 😀

https://www.inverse.com/article/42176-sir-william-henry-perkin-canal-google-doodle

Diamonds come from coal, as you’re fond of saying, but so does black goo, the sort created in a scientific accident, whilst looking for some other holy grail. And it not only revolutionize an industry, it made the wearing an expensive colour more affordable. And so accessible, with all the symbolism and meaning it attracts.

Anyway I’ll save all that for the post 😀

And here we are 😀 Now, Dear Reader, you may or may not know of about the significance of the colour purple to me. It was the triple appearance/sync of ‘Purple People Eater’, something that I’d never even heard off before that Sunday in October 2012, that set me on my current crazy path. You can read about it here

Yesterday’s Google Doodle celebrated the 180th birthday of Sir William Henry Perkin, who in 1856 accidentally stumbled onto a method of producing purple dye, cheaply, from coal tar. He was trying to synthesize quinine, to treat malaria…

*Or a mixer, Clicky… /taps ash…*

… but ended up revolutionizing the fashion industry, creating a ‘river of colours’ and growing very rich…

I’m glad I didn’t finish writing this post last night, Dear Reader, because today I spent my lunch hour in an art gallery, The Beecroft in The Hive. It’s free admission…

Dear Reader, this post follows on from the previous LoL post, and I should probably start this post with a word about pearls

Back in September of 2013, over on Sync Miss For Him, I shambled the album cover artwork of Lightning Bolt by Pearl Jam…

lightning bolt album artwork

*/fumes… It pisses me off that some numpty locked and buried Sync Miss For Him, Clicky… /drags… I’m gonna have to do this from memory… /sigh…*

Basically it occurred to me that each of the tracks’ artwork could correspond with a globally headlining news event/events that had occurred (and was yet to occur) in 2013; each image represented a month. The image for ‘Getaway’, for example, relates to the inauguration of Obama in January that year, ‘Let the Records Play’ with the close flyby of asteroid DA14…

*Yup! …/flicks ash… Blue Frank is convinced the asteroid pass and meteor explosion are intimately related…*

*Oh yeah! …/drags… February was a very busy month that year, Clicky…*

  • ‘Mind Your Manners’ depicted the election of Pope Frankie in March,

  • ‘My Father’s Son’ and the Boston Marathon bombing in April,

  • ‘Pendulum’ and the murder of Lee Rigby in May,

  • ‘Infallible’ and Edward Snowden revelations in June,

  • ‘Future Days’ and the birth of Prince George in July,

  • ‘Sirens’ and the imminent but thankfully scuppered attack on Syria in August,

  • ‘Lightning Bolt’ and the Navy Yard shooting in September,

thats all folks.gif

*/huffs… Well, it was at the end of September when I posted the shamble Clicky… /puffs… hind sight’s easy… /blows… predicting what’ll happen is difficult…*

For the remaining three track artworks, I figured ‘Yellow Moon’ might have something to do with North Korea, although in hind sight ‘Swallowed Whole’ could have been something to do with North Korea. ‘Sleeping By Myself’, however, I speculated it could be related to a high-profile divorce, or the death of a prominent black man…

Missive From ‘Merica: Sonny… Boy!

THURSDAY NIGHT… ABOUT 22OOH… ISH…

“Hello mum. How are you?” Kit Kat plonked himself in Thoughtful Man’s chair and looked at me earnestly.
I was engrossed in reading Cade’s latest missive on my computer screen. “I’m fine thanks, Kitten. And you?”
“I’m okay,” he said, “Are you doing anything interesting?”
“Yes.” I carried on reading and editing.
“Mum, would you like a sip?” Kit Kat held a can of Pepsi to me. He was now lounging on the floor, propped up on one elbow like he was attending a Roman feast. “Bet you didn’t even see me leave and come back.”
“No thanks, darling, and yes I did.” I hadn’t.
“Okay,” he said taking a swig from the can. I carried on reading.
“Is it the thirteenth today?” Kit Kat asked from the arm of my enormous chair. He stroked the sleeping dog beside me and peered at my computer screen. “I’m not looking at your stuff,” he said defensively, “I just saw the date.”
“Yeah,” I said turning to look at his flushed face. There is only reason for this level of attentiveness from Thing Two. “Do you want something to eat?”
“Ooh are you making food, mum?” Thing One interjected from his Captain’s Chair without taking his eyes from his game. “Can I have a garlic pizza?”
I got up from my seat and went into the kitchen. Kit Kat was already there, holding open the doors of the fridge freezer, contemplating the array of foodstuffs that Thoughtful Man had put in there the day before.
“Oh, there’s only one garlic pizza left,” I said pulling the box from the freezer. “If you wanted this you should have just said instead of faffing about.”
He took his time in front of the open doors, rocking back and forth on his heels, humming and hawing before pointing at a small cardboard and cellophane box nestled on the second shelf of the fridge. “What’s that?”
I picked up the chicken caesar wrap Thoughtful Man had bought for me. “Do you want it?”
“What date is on it?” Kit Kat asked nonchalantly.
“The thirteenth,” I said with a squint.
“Thanks,” he said taking it from my hands. “No point in wasting it.”

I’m dead in the water.

Need a life-raft.

I'm fond of catamarans if that helps.
^BAD – U2^

I guess I otter talk about water. Been thinking about it since some Aussie Asshat made some comments earlier in the week on their blog, then some Limey Lady made even more comments on my comments on the Aussie’s comments. Who in the FUCK gives a shit what some Okie from Texas has to say about anything…let alone my thoughts on water? I guess the type of pondering that I do is kinda difficult for some to understand, because I tend to ponder a lot. Not that there is any connection there with pondering water…heh heh heh. But I guess its that “pond-during-water” that makes a pond a pond. Without the water, the pond is a dried up hole, just waiting for rain to fill it. Not that you should read too deep into this.

Well...maybe you should, maybe shouldn't.

May is a great time for rain in these parts. Maybe it’ll rain and fill those ponds for the summer…Maybe it won’t. Don’t wanna put all our fish in one pond. Someone may just depend on it.

^U2 – Pride (In The Name Of Love)^
“Just because you are dumb, doesn’t mean you have to be stupid.”

“Just because you are stupid, doesn’t mean you have to be dumb.”

Q: Welp, what if you are both, and trying to be neither?

A: ...

I wonder where someone might get the idea that they are stupid and/or dumb?

I wonder where someone might get the idea that they are not stupid and/or dumb?

I wonder where someone might get the idea that their ideas are stupid and/or dumb?

“Righteous-indignation” and “self-righteousness” seems to be on the agenda as of late. So lemme turn that gun on myself here, since I’m not real big on righteousness of any kind since it tends to be borne of unkindness in my experience…

"I HATE...self-righteous people."

Welp, since I’m not righteous, is that my reason/the reason I hate righteousness? Prolly. But I primarily hate the method of delivery. Meaning how the virtue of righteousness is obtained and shared. Gonna be a lotta mud-slinging in there. Guess someone has found some source of water since there is mud to sling at someone else.

Is that the best you got?

I get the mud and you get the water?

Fuck it. I’ll take it.

I am able to picture a British climber on the downslopes of Siula Grande in Peru, slurping mud to survive after breaking one of his legs. The story being, that he and his companion were able to summit Siula Grande climbing a face that had never been climbed before…ever…by anyone. That’s…where the story began. Odd eh? Most would think that the summit would be the end of the story.

Welp…if that’s where you want the story to end…that’s where it ends.

^U2 – Mysterious Ways^

I guess I could quote Jim Morrison/The Doors here, and their “No One Gets Out Of Here Alive” vein of thinking, as it seems applicable. But have you ever considered the possibility of a life lived never being more alive at the point of death? And I’m not talking about the “At least they died doing something they loved” types of thinking either. Kinda thinking, both of the previous thoughts with some other types of thinking/thoughts as well. Lotta stirring and swirling needs cooking when thinking about thinking. Especially if you are in the business of telling others what to think.

!!! SAY WUT?!?!?!?

Yeah…the business of telling others what to think. There’s no escaping it irrespective of your business. The question is, “what is your business?”

See what a trap I’ve set there for myself?

Yep...it's a doozy.
^U2 – I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For^

Q: If you get something for free, can you turn around and charge a fee to someone else for that same thing?

A: Sometimes?

How long is that sometimes? All times? Sounds like the model for that mode of thinking is already there/already exists. Now…we just have to figure out how best to utilize it. So yeah…justification…we need some. Anyone know where we can pick up some justification? We do wanna be able to sleep at night afterall.

^U2 – Vertigo^

I’ve made the case, that should God/gods exist, they don’t need “proof” or “justification” in my mind.

DUDE!!! YOU WERE RAISED IN A CHRISTIAN HOME/ENVIRONMENT!!! YOU ARE BIASED!!! BRAINWASHED!!!

True. Gods like Kundalini and Zeus and Brahma and Atum and Set are always on my mind…I am COMPLETELY brainwashed by Jesus and Yahweh/YHVH or whatever that guy’s name is. I guess YHVH wanted things his way.

lolz...I'm going straight to hell for that one....lolz

But yeah…it seems to me, that in my limited readings of ancient texts, that “the gods” were some smart motherfuckers. They always seem to be more about advice and fellowship, than answers. Meaning: We seek out the gods for answers, and we never seem to stop and consider their time and/or the times spent with them.

We want something…they have it.

It’s rarely what we expected…therefore, it adds that “WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?” kinda dimension to it, that when you think about it, you kinda get the feeling that “so did they.” Meaning that they gave the thought some thought(s), and those thoughts took some time. Almost as if they saw you coming.

I wonder…did we see them coming?

Prolly not.

We have too many preconceived notions about them and what they are based on what we think we know.

And where did we get that information?

Welp…I dunno…where did you get your information?

Is where you got it relevant?

Or was it the fact that you got it relevant?

Get it?

^The Verve – Bitter Sweet Symphony^

I have a quick thought regarding the previous song, and the concept of “bittersweet.”

Q: Can you discern or make a distinction between the two even when they are combined?

A: ?¿?

Q: Can you discern or make a distinction between the two when they are separate, but tasted one at a time?

A: ¿?¿

Yep…all systems normal.

Mystery = SOLVED! Next!
^U2 – Where The Streets Have No Name^

So thinking about “sweet water(s)” and/or “bitter water(s)”…they are the same thing at different times. I mean, there is a need there right? Otherwise, you wouldn’t be tasting water(s) to see if they are sweet or bitter. Or did you not give a shit whether the water was sweet or bitter? You were thirsty. Can’t learn anything if you are dead. At least, that’s what I’ve been told. Dead men tell no tales. What horseshit. /rolls eyes

The shit that we teach each other is fucking mind-bending.

Mainly because, I think of the concept of teacher-student relationship being a lasting one. I mean, that is your point in teaching right? You want to pass along something to someone that they can carry with them forever? Because they are gonna do that regardless. Even if you later tell them to stop thinking about what you previously suggested that they think about. Was that original thought just further compounded? Is that how reinforcement works? The “good cop/bad cop” or “long con/short con” kinds of thinking?

Ever see someone try to drop something hot?

It’s not always as reflexive as we like to think, because we tend to ignore the exception(s).

Lotta this shit has a kind of “Pandora’s Box” kinda ring to it, eh?

Welp, chemists and similar scientists deal with rings all the time…so this shit should be “old hat” to them. 😉

^U2-Wire (Lyrics)^

I know, I know…it’s at this point that you are prolly thinking…

"DUDE! WHAT THE FUCK IS IT WITH ALL OF THE U2 ALL OF A SUDDEN LIKE?!?!?!?"

I like U2.

Did you know that Sue is a god in some circles?

lolz...a sun god being a god in some circles...lolz

Sué

Yep…hell…I’m headed there.

Not supposed to poke fun at God/gods, and the only punishment available seems to be hell if you do poke fun at them…so…yeah. Thanks. Doomed…I appear to be it.

^U2 – Desire^

So I was talking with my oldest son again last night, and we were talking about music. This conversation wandered into the topic of art. This wandered into the topic of religion, because I expressed the thought to my son of “don’t let art nor artists beat you up.” I told him that I was under the impression that art was there to beat on, not to beat up on you, but it sure as shit can give you an ass-kicking of epic proportions if you let it. I went on to express that I felt that maybe art and religion have a common ground in the way and ways that God speaks to us. Maybe that one avenue is for ass-kicking, and one is for kicking-ass. Maybe even that these pathways go both ways, meaning that they open pathways for us to dish out a little ass-kicking of our own to God, and others not so much.

Anyone who might be reading this, was not there to pick up on the vibes/tone of the conversation. But he seemed a tad overwhelmed by the impressiveness of some music that he has been stumbling across, and the musical prowess of those creating it. Hence, I expressed to him not to let that beat you up. It’s supposed to inspire you. And it appears that it has. Maybe we sometimes misinterpret inspiration sometimes. I mean, the concept of “the muse” is to inspire. No one ever considers that the inspiration will come in the form of an ass-kicking. Maybe even from a flamethrower.

nod to Richard Bach there
^U2: Bullet the Blue Sky^


So yeah…channels…

^The Cranberries – Zombie^

BLECH!!! All of this fucking philosophical nonsense is making my headache go away. Or return. Or something.

WATER!!! It’s the only thing that matters to life.

Will you pass the ketchup please?

Wut?

Will you pass the ketchup pretty-please?

Ketchup has water in it?

Yeah, and for some reason, bread now has high-fructose corn syrup in it. Cept for the brands that are now touting the fact that they DO NOT have high-fructose corn syrup in it.

WTF?!?!? Since when does BREAD have high-fructose corn syrup in it?

I had to run look at the loaf of bread packaging real quick where I had noticed a placard on the packaging a coupla days ago, and it’s “100% Whole Wheat Bread With Honey Added.”

The “With Honey Added” part was in extremely small text as opposed to the extremely large text portion of “100% Whole Wheat” portion.

Almost as if…someone is trying to get our attention.

Has a…”zoom in/zoom out” kinda thinking to it.

I mean, say what you want about how many times a loaf of bread is taxed by the time it hits your palette, that bread has gone through some RADICAL changes in size here and there, and will continue to do so. Or at least, it will if you choose to eat it.

I don’t know whether to think of “The Bread of Life Here”…or “Alice In Wonderland.”

Prolly cause I’m supposed to be thinking/talking about water, and not food.

Dr. Leonard McCoy: “How can you think of food at a time like this?!?!?”
Admiral James T. Kirk: “First order of business…survival.”
Movie = Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

^Toto – Africa^

WATER!!! It’s important to life. Especially if you are an anaerobic type of life-form.

Life...Form. Sounds almost like an edict.

Anyway, yeah water is like, important and stuff. Prolly some processes involved in getting water into, and out of, us. Maybe some preventative stuff, maybe some prohibitive stuff, maybe even some other stuff. I mean, water itself is capable of transformation, so why wouldn’t we need to be a little bit flexible ourselves? Get too much rigidity going on, and all of a sudden like, does that make the concept of rigidity itself even MORE rigid? Or less rigid? Ridged. Has a ledge kinda ring to it eh? Like, why seek a ridge if you don’t intend on jumping? Erm…since when did “jumping” come into the picture? I’m just enjoying the view. You wanna enjoy that view from a different angle/perspective? Knock yerself out. I’m more comfortable at the bottom myself. But if I wanna get there fast? I woulda came prepared as such.

Kinda makes me think of the book “A Separate Peace.” Maybe even the story of Cain and Abel, which makes me think of the book “East of Eden.” Was just talking about James Dean last night with respect to the movie East of Eden since he was in it. Great book, great movie. Lotta things to think about there with respect to give and take. Give/take, push/pull…whatever floats yer boat. Same thing, different time(s), all at the same time, at different times. I guess “the real question” there would be…”Are you involved? Or ain’t ya?” Yeah, gonna be some levels and leveling there. And I’m certainly not trying to bring anyone down. Not try to push you up either. But I might be able to help in either regard. Maybe not.

We’ll see.

Or we won’t.

Whatevz.
^Talk Talk – It´s My Life^

I guess that’s why I hate gossip. It includes me on a level that I am not comfortable with. Considering that I am a person who is quite comfortable with discomfort? Yeah…it’s a weird thought to think that others are talking about me, because I am quite comfortable with no one talking about me. But then again, it seems like the only time that anyone is thinking/talking about me is when I have done something wrong. My achievements are devoid of anything even remotely verbose at all, and yet my failures seem to inspire volumes. And all I can do is stand and shrug because I thought that failures are expected. Anticipated even. I mean, you’ve labeled me as “a walking-taking-fuckup”…what else would you expect? OH! More time in between fuckups?

Huh…I guess I ain’t doing so bad afterall.

Yep, it ain’t that hard at all being positive about the negative.

^No Doubt – Don’t Speak^

As I sit here in disgust thinking about the shit that I’ve written here in this particular grouping of shit that I have written, I try to hang onto the concept of “if you can’t help yourself, help someone else.” I guess that’s why that “taking liberties” with communication and their methods really chaps my ass. Yeah, I can do it, I have done it. But I don’t like it. Something as hard-earned as communication should be handled well. Not gingerly, not respectfully, not irresponsibly, not haphazardly. And yet, those things are possible, so they can and will happen.

So…intent and intentions. Have the intent of “doing this”…and you are prolly going to do just that. Whodathunkit? Yeah, I’ve laid a SHITLOAD of traps for myself in this here particular “Missive.” But something that bends my head is something that Jesus/Yeshua said in The Bible regarding “committing acts in our heart” that has always troubled me. Mainly because, I’ve always been told that I shouldn’t think about certain things. Combine the two? Yeah…a recipe for a shitload of guilt and self-loathing. Depression even. Maybe all of those.

^Simple Minds – Alive And Kicking^

I’ve read in some of these varied places around the web, that Jesus was spirited away to Egypt and taught/trained in the mystical arts there between the ages of 8/12 to 30 or so. Welp, sounds weird at first glance, but they didn’t want him in Jerusalem, and the boy prolly needed schooling…so…where to? Not like the Israelites didn’t have some roots there in Egypt in a “back and forth/to from to/to from and through” kinda way. Maybe someone was kinda…”chillin in Egypt for a while” after pulling up stakes a time or two prior to heading back there at some point. Makes sense. Prolly gonna burn in some special kinda hell for even thinking such a thought according to my upbringing, but yeah…makes sense. It makes sense to me on so many “levels”…that I don’t even want to write about it. I mean, I don’t want to even think about it. This is the kinda shit, that as far as I’ve been told, will not only damn your soul, but also get your body motherfucking mangled in the process of transitioning between these two damnations. Man…harsh.

Q: Assuming that I have a soul, who has the ability to damn it?

A: ...
^Blur – Song 2^

Q: If someone gets it wrong, and it falls to you to get it right, how does one do that?

A: There's you answer. Answers...even. Right there in the question.

Someone getting it wrong, outlines a way or ways to get it right. Or, as I prefer, get it correct. I mean, if something is wrong, how is right gonna help us out? Welp, stay creative in that line of thinking, think of direction change and changes, and suddenly everything is a step laid out for you. You just have to walk the distance. This makes me think of my own “wrasslin with the dragon in the maze” kinda moment. But that moment didn’t come only at hugging the dragon as opposed to slaying it, it came upon “exiting the maze”…and encountering the lion.

Yep…I thought the adventure was over, but it was only beginning.

Silly me.
^R.E.M. – Orange Crush (Official Music Video)^

Life can be overwhelming. But if you think of those “overwhelming times” also in times of joy and happiness, maybe we can distance ourselves from the current usage of this parlance as it relates to depression.

To relate, in my conversation with my oldest son last night, he was talking about their trip to Galveston, and how that he was not very fond of that trip because he pretty much had to play babysitter/chaperon since he was/is over the age of 18. But he relayed the story of seeing a dolphin on the last day just prior to leaving, and he said that upon seeing that dolphin breach the water…he was like “Oh yeah! That one thing made this whole trip worth the anguish.”

I guess we were again discussing the concept of synchronicity in a round’about kinda way…and related to him the first time I ever saw a dolphin. I told him that I was quite young, but my heart started beating so hard, that I thought it was gonna burst out of my chest, and I have no idea as to why. But I remember that experience.

Maybe there was something “more” to that experience, maybe not. It was what it was, and it is what it is.

I had completely forgotten about that experience.
^4 Non Blondes – What’s Up^
