Missive From ‘Merica: Bundle!

*/lights up… Let’s keep the top and tail short and sweet, Clicky… /drags… I have a remote viewing date tonight… /plumes smoke…*

Cade and I have been remote viewing the Stranger Things series this week, Dear Reader. I want to finish season 3 before I write anything about it, but rest assured, a shamble is formulating in this noggin of mine…

*Dagnammit, Clicky! I said short and sweet… /flicks ash… Dear Reader ain’t gonna spend ten minutes listening to that. Not when there’s a fantastic missive to devour…*

… Luckily Cade touches on the series in his missive below. So enjoy! ❤

*******

I’d like to tell you a story…

about a man named Jed…

a poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed.

I’d like to tell you that story…

but I’m not going to.

Happy Friday Shit4Brainz
^Skrillex – First Of The Year (Equinox) [Official Music Video]^

Welp, this is one way to get someone to “take you to their leader”…

Intentionally giving lawmakers and weapons designers/manufacturers reason(s) to use those laws and weapons…

great idea!

Thanks for justifying their reason(s) for existing. I’m sure the fines will be a welcome windfall, as the prison time is likely to choke the living shit out of the legal system for centuries to come, and create the need for more and bigger Gitmo and Joe Arpaio types of “correctional facilities”.

But lets think practically

The automobile has made us somewhat stupid as to the logistical nightmare that this A51 invasion would be. Last night I was watching a documentary that was talking about the Second Fitna (Second Islamic Civil War) and they were talking about how long it took for the Umayyad to pull their troops out of Mecca and return to Damascus because the king had died, and someone killed his heir not long after. The documentary I was watching is actually trying to make the argument that “Ancient Mecca” is actually Petra, and not the modern day Mecca…

but that's not really what was on my mind

What was on my mind was how in the hell you pull an army out of an area that you just got to, irrespective of the distance(s) you have to cover. Supposedly, the Umayyad had only gotten to Mecca 40 days before, and now it had to disengage, pull out completely, and does so in about that same amount of time…40 days. Ironically, there’s a more modern logistical nightmare like that if the thought of thousands of people in the desert doesn’t tickle your fancy.

Retreat From Gettysburg

I watched something on that recently too…and…holy shit…what a fucking nightmare. But I know that warfare prolly isn’t your cup of herbal tea, so lets keep it more realerist of all…

Burning Man

I guess they are up to around 70,000 attendees for this thing, it is quite the feat to support that amount of people in the desert for a week, and this ‘Area 51 Get Stun Gunned Fun Run’ is going to host 300,000 people…over 4x more. Even if only half showed up, you’re still talking over 2x Burning Man. So lets think about what is going to get you to Rachel Nevada…assuming you idiots are planning on hitting the base from the North. You are going to drink every gas station dry. ‘Cept for you dolts driving a Smart Car or Prius or a Tesla.

Who...in the FUCK...would take an electric car to the desert?* 

Of course, the government is going to have to respond to your onslaught, so its possible they are going to commandeer or restrict every gas station within 200 miles of the base. You may have enough gas to get in, but you won’t have enough to get out. You’re going to fuck over a lot of the locals in the process, so it is unlikely that visitors of any kind will be welcome in the future.

(pun intended) 

Better bring plenty of tents since accommodations will be few and far between, and bring enough water to drink at least 8 litres per day. I know I’m rambling, and this Facebook thing is stupid, but my mind is awash with how in the hell you’d ever get even 1/10th of that many people remotely close to there. “Strength in numbers” is not always a true statement.

Woodstock

That’s a social bum rush that turned out well. They didn’t think their shit through either.

*I’m not talking about engineers testing electric cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

^Tenacious D – Storm The Gate!^

My suggestion is to show up early, get arrested/detained immediately. At least you’ll have a place to stay, you’ll be out of the heat, food and water will be available, and you’ll have a nice clean place to shit and paper to wipe your ass with until the shitstorm you created, itself, passes. You get you social badge of honor of “being there” to wear around your social media sites, you’re safe and snug thanks to the gubment… and the best part? You still paid for the accommodations via your tax dollars. Its win/win.

Being…there
Hrm

sounds catchy...kinda like the same way that barbed wire is catchy
^F’ing Rant | Rory McIlroy’s rigged Canadian Open win, June 9, 2019 & Kyle Lowry jersey tribute^

What are you gonna do with these alien remains? Shove them in your mom’s refrigerator like the idiots did with the Demidog in season 2 of Stranger Things? I bet mom’s fridge is a long ways away, you’re in the middle of the desert, so how long you figure before that fucker thaws out and begins to rot. Or worse, wakes up in a bad mood, tries to eat your brain, discovers you have no brains, gets even more pissed off, calls in the mothership for a rescue, and vanishes from this planet forever.

Seriously, have you given thought to what kind of social damage an alien showing up once, leaving, and never returning would do? You’ve got your proof, but only for you. Everyone who follows is going to think you and everyone around you were morons, hallucinators, uninformed bullshitters, story tellers and/or liars…prolly all on drugs too.

 Sound familiar? 

It should. Just about every culture that came before us can be accused of the same, and the theme is the same all over the world. The Long Gone Gods. Gods and monsters. Mystics and Titans of all kinds. Gone forever. Never to return. Prolly never existed in the first place. Buncha uneducated idiots telling tales after school/making shit up because they weren’t smart like us. They didn’t have…SCIENCE!

Our new god(s)
^Iron Maiden – Flight Of Icarus (Official Video)^

Speaking of flights of fancy, we sure are flying close to the sun/Sol these days. I wonder if that’s a good idea. Not saying we shouldn’t do it, but this new religion of Science requires/demands the unquestioning belief of the followers in much the same way more traditional religions do. But Science still omits a shitload of us, all in favor of the clergy themselves.

Sound familiar? 

It should. But, that’s why I write in the first place. I’m not gonna win any awards or make any cash, but I will hopefully leave something behind for my children. Fill in some gaps, pass along some ways of looking at things that are neither faithful nor rebellious. Hopefully allow them a bit of guidance + the freedom to do what they need to do in their own time(s) and in their own moment(s). I’ve learned that there are times when the best thing to do, is throw the rule book(s) out the window.

Improvise

There are other times when you should follow the rule book(s) step by step, and without fail. You can’t remember everything. That’s why there are rule books and manuals in the first place. Or so an aircraft mechanic told me once.

Makes sense
^Why the Parker Solar Probe is NASA’s most exciting mission | Michelle Thaller^

An interesting vid, but the analogy she gives regarding a camp fire getting hotter the further away you move? That’s…not really accurate. Heat here in our context…rises. Convective activity. Not to mention that during the Tudor period, they found out real quick that it gets a helluva lot hotter above the fire/in the chimney than it does in front of the fire. Not to mention that they found out that the gases themselves and the soot/unburned stuff is pretty goddamn flammable.

Think about it like this…heat, really doesn’t go “up”…it goes out. Actually, it goes up and out at the same time. But if you see a chimney burning from space, the smoke is going to be going out, not up. A “spew” rather than a “rise”. But yeah, it does both at the same time, depending on your orientation/location. So what she is talking about regarding heat traveling laterally…is not…really…accurate.

I would imagine that much of our Sun’s matter/mass at and around the surface actually acts as to keep the temperatures more constant/consistent. Much like room temperature water or molten metal or even salt in a sodium reactor. However, in the case of molten metal or a sodium reactor, everything in the immediate area is gonna be hotter than hell because of the change in the medium for conducting heat.

Wait...did I just state the obvious? 

I guess I’m wondering why science/scientists are wondering why the corona is “hotter than the sun itself”.

^KISS – Hotter Than Hell (Live at Winterland ’75)^

I wonder sometimes if matter/energy can begin moving so fast, that it becomes immeasurably cold. Maybe even that the surrounding environment becomes ridiculously hot. Like say…

lightning

Prolly unrelated, but there’s gotta be something going on that prevents the flow of electrons from becoming constant in certain environments. I know that prolly doesn’t make much sense considering the nature of materials science – I’m actually thinking about static electricity and aircraft more than I am thinking about naturally occurring lightning – but there’s got to be something that sustains cold other than just/only the absence of heat.

Blah
^No_4mat – 1992^

Um…

Q: What do you want from these aliens?

A: ???

Seriously, what can they possibly provide for you? Is that all they can do? Provide things…for you? This seems more like government angst than it seems like some natural interest/curiosity, but that’s prolly because I’m still steaming over season 1 of Stranger Things. Yeah, I watched it last weekend, have written a bit about it, but you’ve basically got different groups of assholes fighting over…

Eleven

Doesn’t matter whether it’s that pack of creepy assholes in their government hideout, or that creepy pack of nerds playing Dungeons and Dragons in their basement…they’re basically the same people at different times. The kids start talking about Eleven as if she’s a weapon…a tool for them to use. Before long, everyone is doing the same shit. She’s something to be feared, and everyone wants to get their claws in her for various reasons. So again, I gotta ask…

Q: What do you want from these aliens?

A: ???

You want disclosure? You want proof? Or is access what you are really wanting? Can’t say I blame you really. There’s plenty of places that I’d like to visit and poke around. My itinerary and reasons for visiting these places might differ slightly from yours. Some might be similar tho.

/shrug
^Trentemøller: Moan^

Most people don’t give a fuck about the water itself, they want control of the tap. Others want to control the pipelines.

Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Was watching a doc yesterday on Antarctica, and the mission itself was more of a fisheries expedition than it was a research mission. Not to mention that the musical score, the editing and the narration made the whole thing seem like a commercial. But it seems to me that “business” is only willing to fund science if there is a return. And business is going to have to be in cahoots with government in order to finance the mission in the first place, so yeah…

a triad between science, business and government

That said, if you want control of the infrastructure that provides information, build your own. Hell, I thought that was the purpose of Social Media in the first place…give you a voice. So…what have you done with it, this voice you now have. Have you been honest? Have you been forthcoming? Do you actually tell the truth, or do you simply espouse to the fact that you are telling the truth, and you are you spewing whatever will get you the most votes on election day? Wait…what’s that? You never thought of likes and shares and followers as being the same as votes?

Weird 

I’d imagine a smart fucker like you woulda been all over that.

^Alice^

Oh, and here’s that documentary on the Antarctica exploitation, if you wanna watch it. The documentary was posted on YT on July 9 of 2019, but the documentary itself is a National Geographic documentary from 2008 called Expedition Antarctica.

Expedition Antarctica

So yeah, an 11 year old documentary repackaged as something new in the now. If you’re wanting to be timely, current, and on the cutting edge of discovery, this show may not be for you.

^The Secrets of Antarctica | Full Documentary | TRACKS^

Would be nice to find a copy of that Paul Watson movie/doc At the Edge of the World. I bet Roob would enjoy that. Yeah, Watson is accused of being a bit sketchy, but EVERYTHING is sketchy, so not sure what the problem is with sketchy things. In fact, if it wasn’t for sketchy shit, the Internet prolly woulda died long ago. TV too. And radio. And film. And photography. And print. Hell, is media the only thing keeping us alive? Well, maybe that and oral tradition.

The Aroostook Triangle

That appeared on my radar yesterday, and I’ve been contemplating to concepts of gossip and rumor a lot lately. Hell, most of this post is about rumor and gossip, it’s just that a lot of it gets packaged as some kind of official and/or authentic something that is reliable because of a mark or seal or something. Which, did you know that Twitter has “authenticated” accounts?

About verified accounts

Excuse me…”verified”, not authenticated. So yeah, the tap itself has a placard saying that everything is A-OK. That’s no guarantee as to what is in the pipeline tho, nor its source(s). Most information is aggregate anyway. Not clean and pure like single-malt Scotch whiskey.

😉

^CHVRCHES – Lies^

I guess that “single-malt” refers to batches of a particular production run that have not been mixed with leftovers from previous runs? I have no idea, and pretty sure I’ve never drunk a single-malt Scotch. Too fucking expensive. I ain’t spending $150 on a bottle of Scotch. I can buy several fifths of Dewar’s for that, or maybe a keg of beer. Not that I have a place to keep a keg nor a means of keeping it cold. Maybe someday I can afford both a kegerator and a bottle of single-malt.

^Fever Ray ‘When I Grow Up’^

Anyway…it’s 10:24 on Friday morning, been at this for a while, my butt is frozen to the side of the bed from sitting here writing all that bullshit above, and I guess I better get prepared to watch the rest of season 3 of Stranger Things. I don’t like much of anything of what I’ve seen thusfar. A bunch of angsty yelling and everyone trying to tell everyone else what to do/not do. The Snow Ball was kinda funny. I couldn’t decide if it was more Napoleon Dynamite or Fish Under The Sea Dance. Or Carrie. Or Footloose. It did have a Napoleon Dynamite song in it, but maybe the Snow Ball was actually not trying to be any of those previously mentioned things. I mean, it’s a dance and school dances, unlike alien landings or paranormal shitstorms, are quite a common occurrence here in the US of A.

Are school dances portrayed onscreen taboo unless approved by the Bomont, Utah Community Standards and Morality Council?* Or is this where union groups and guilds come into play. I had no idea that the entertainment industry was so inundated with guilds and unions, but it is.

*this is a nod to the movie Footloose (fyi)
^Joke Theft and Cryptomnesia^

You want to know things. Me too. I guess the question is…

Q: How do you want to know it?

A: ?? ¿

You can kill two birds with one stone that way. “They” are gonna be equally interested in how you know what you know, as well as what you know. And knowing is half the battle. No wait, surprise is half the battle. Anyway, yeah, both halves of the battle are important, and how you know what you know is equally as important as what you know. Some considerations to sequencing might not go amiss either. Chronological, topical, contextual, alphabetical…things like that.

Reference

Some reference points get a little…loopy. Especially when someone is pulling your fingernails out with a pair of pliers. You’ve only got so many fingernails, and getting them yanked out makes concentration a bit difficult.

^Deadmau5 – Sometimes Things Get, Whatever || HD^

I do wonder what you think you’re gonna find on the other side of that fence other than miles of desert, a shitload of snakes and scorpions, dehydration, sunburn, some giant runways, secret aircraft programs, a shitload of toxic waste(s), and a bunch of gung-ho types with automatic weapons who are more than willing to deal you out some government issued bullet wounds. Even if you find what you are looking for, then what? Haven’t you seen Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade?

*******

Sup douchebag. Or, douchebags…if there are more than one of you. Doing OK today? Wanna travel a potentially dark path? Me either too neither also.

Q: Why do Christians hate Satanists?

A: ? ? ?

The concept of Satan and/or Satanism springs from your own mythos, right? So I really don’t see what you get in such a twist over every time that/those particular part(s) of your own bullshit is mentioned. Seems like all you need to do in order to defeat Satan or Lucifer or the Devil or whoever, is edit them out. Redact their evil ass(es) from The Bible.

 Problem solved

But wait, you can’t do that can you? Not only does God say not to change one word, but you can’t remove the opposition. The opposite is what allows the entirety of the structure(s) to stand in the first place. Man, you guys are staring down the barrel of Gnosticism aren’t you. I mean, you’re gonna have to face the fact that you’re eventually gonna have to blame God for everything at some point, and I get the feeling that this is almost the entirety of what makes up the basis for Gnosticism…

blame God

Or if you want to avoid those pesky Gnostic conundrums, you can just keep Big Red in The Bible, God is off the hook, problem solved? Is that how this works? I’m asking because I don’t know.

^Iron Maiden- The Prisoner^

You really don’t think I think you’re a douchebag, do you?

You aren't, right? 

I wouldn’t sweat being called names…

X: Can I add something here?

Cade: Oh, hello. I’m sure you can add something with a modicum of effort.

X: How do you figure that you completely forgot that your favorite Iron Maiden song even existed?

Cade: Woah. I woulda expected a question like that to come from 0: or T:.

X: Anyone but me?

Cade: Pretty much, yeah.

0: Do you have an answer?

Cade: Welp, you’ve kinda muddied the waters as to what question needs to be answered.

B: No…you did that.

Cade: Muddied the waters?

B: Yes.

Cade: I realize that. But X: typically doesn’t start conversations via a rather detailed question.

Z: Are they typically more of an “observational” type of instigator?

Cade: Yeah. Fuzzy, but knowing.

F: What in the hell does that mean?

Cade: Welp, can I answer the original question first?

T: Will that give you time to think about how to respond?

Cade: Yes. And in answer to how I could possibly forget that my favorite Iron Maiden song even existed? Time.

X: Time, and…???

Cade: Time and rejection.

X: Rejection?

Cade: Yes. I started to “reject” heavy metal music when it started to get kinda…

Z: Foofoo?

Cade: Yes. Foofoo, or fufu or whatever. Frilly. Sparkly. Glam.

Z: You wanted to stay in the dark.

Cade: Yeah, something like that. I was just beginning to understand the dark, become comfortable with the dark.

X: And then?

Cade: Light.

0: Too much focus on the dark creates a glare.

Cade: Now that you put it like that, yeah. Like flicking on a light just as your eyes have adjusted to the dark.

Z: Or coming indoors on a bright and sunny day?

Cade: Yeah that too. Not grey as much as a weird mish-mashy rainbow of colors trying to find where they go/where they need to be.

X: That’s quite the description. Ever thought of it like that before?

Cade: Not really. But now that I think about it, it’s almost like shoving a rainbow flavored sno-cone into your eye.

T: How many time do you think you’ve heard that song The Prisoner?

Cade: A bunch. I used to listen to it over and over.

T: The song has a lot of colors.

Cade: Indeed it does. Up-tempo with a down-tempo intro, clarity, confusion, decision, anger, hope…

X: …and rejection.

Cade: Yes! That song does have some “rejection” overtones in it doesn’t it?

X: I hadn’t noticed.

Cade: lolz

X: 😉

F: Ahem.

Cade: I gotta scroll up, because I forgot what you asked.

F: Don’t bother.

Cade: K.

X: He’s gonna “bother” you know.

F: Why would he, when I specifically requested that he not?

0: Because he wants to know.

T: He thinks he does.

B: In the event the question is raised again.

Cade: Do I need to be here for this conversation?

F: Don’t do what I asked you not to do, and the problem is solved.

Cade: Not from my vantage point.

F: You scrolled.

Cade: Indeed I did, and in answer your original question, “knowing an answer” does not necessarily mean that you know how to provide that answer to a particular individual?

F: You were thinking of anecdotal evidence as you typed that.

Cade: Of course I was.

F: To relate the answer?

Cade: I would say, “to better relate the answer”, but that’s just me.

F: And why is that?

Cade: Because I can have the answer to a question…

T: But that doesn’t mean that you understand it.

Cade: Correct. Even less so with respect to answering an individual.

F: You know a lot of things you don’t understand?

Cade: Um, I think I need to be careful in answering that.

X: Booya.

Cade: Booya indeed.

F: What does that mean? “In your face F:?”

Cade: No. It is a correctness in the moment which buys more time for contemplation on if and how to answer your question.

F: Wait, you are saying you have answers to questions, and you don’t understand these answers, therefore you are hesitant to share these answers you have, simply because you yourself do not understand them?

Cade: Yes. Not always mind you.

F: What the hell does that mean?

Cade: Wow, my head is suddenly a train wreck.

Z: If only you were able to find a relatable anecdote, you wouldn’t be in this mess.

Cade: Tru dat.

F: You probably just have an inner desire to talk. Therefore your first instinct is block direct answers so as to inspire conversation.

Cade: Welp, that’s complete bullshit. I’m typically told that I have the finesse and delicacy of an asteroid slamming into the Yucatan Penninsula.

0: He ain’t lying.

F: How so?

A: Usually, he gives very direct answers in order to avoid conversation.

Z: Dry as the desert.

X: Heartless as stone.

T: All to avoid confusion.

Cade: Oy vey.

0: Oy vey indeed.

Cade: Avoid any perception of being deceitful.

X: Take the beating.

Cade: Forever and always, take the beating.

X: Booya.

F: Take the beating?

Cade: Get it over with. The beating is going to come irrespective of how the information is provided.

F: No justification? No rationalization?

Cade: Wait a moment here, anyone reading that might become confused as to who is rationalizing what.

Z: And why.

Cade: And why.

F: I’m confused.

Cade: Yes, I have many answers. Yes, I have many answers that I personally do not understand. Yes, I have grown hesitant in providing said information when asked for it.

F: Perhaps you are trying to avoid these beatings afterall?

Cade: Do you know what comes after?

F: Can you explain that? I don’t understand.

Cade: After someone asks me “do you know…”, and I answer directly and succinctly, do you know what comes after?

F: Another question?

Cade: Exactly. What I know, then after I tell what I know comes the question of how I know it.

F: And then?

Cade: Its a mess.

F: So, you know a bunch of stuff, but don’t know how you know it.

Cade: There are libraries you know.

F: Meaning…what?

Cade: We encountered eachother. It’s highly unlikely that I know something that others don’t know. So if you want a different source, there are plenty available.

F: Wait, is this about synchronicity?

Cade: Somewhat. Time. You want something in a timely manner, I give it to you, perhaps that saves you some time from having to go somewhere else to get it.

F: And if you don’t answer my question?

Cade: Then perhaps I was not the one that was supposed to give you the information you needed. I’m not a fucking ATM machine.

F: And what is that supposed to mean?

Cade: Go ask an ATM machine for a bottle of Dr. Pepper a bag of Cheetos and find out what I mean. Might ask the ATM machine what it thinks of the new Avengers movie whilst you are at it. Chat about the weather. Perhaps ask for investing advice or get them to comment on your wardrobe choices.

F: I would not do such a thing.

Cade: I don’t care if you would or wouldn’t.

F: Why don’t you care?

Cade: Because I don’t. “Fuzzy knowing”, I would think anyway, is not as much about whether or not to provide information requested, but how to provide the information. A “rock” is not just and only “a rock”.

F: It is if it’s a six mile wide asteroid slamming into the Yucatan Peninsula.

Cade: That isn’t a rock at all…it’s a missile.

0: If I may be so bold as to interject, this is getting a bit long, don’t you think?

Cade: It is indeed.

F: …

If you want answers, I got em’. Step right up and get your answers.

…I didn’t have the slightest desire to drop anything upon reading the text of that tweet.

THERE we go! That last one is what we are looking for. It’s not a daisy-cutter. What’s that? You dunno what a daisy-cutter is? Welp, you can go look it up your own damn self if you wanna. Anyway, I get the feeling that whatever this searingly urgent message is, is prolly more along the lines of investment advice and/or some kind of corporate signaling. That’s just me being conspiratorial tho.

Are you accepting, of being unaccepting?

Also, aren’t feet multi-purpose?

Movies are supposed to be entertaining. Movies are supposed to be titular. Exciting. Interesting.

Entertainment. Movies are something you are supposed to want more and more of. With respect to those concepts…

Q: Does the blending of “the hideous” within a wrapper of “entertainment” muddy meaning(s)?

A: ???

More than that, would you know if movies had switched in their usage/utilization between a medium of entertainment, and one of entrainment? Not indoctrination, as much as entrainment. An intentional mixing/blending of concepts in order to manifest certain emotions that typically operate on different frequencies and/or carry different resonances?

Lemme give an example. Recently, the “antihero” archetype has become quite prevalent in movies, and especially superhero flicks. There’s nothing new about the antihero, but the depictions of them in movies is quite new. Ace Ventura is an antihero. The Man With No Name is an antihero. Frankenstein’s Monster is an antihero. Charles Kane is an antihero. The Shadow is an antihero.

Wait a minute here…there’s nothing new about antiheroes, except in superhero movies. Depictions of superheroes with flaws…maybe that’s what is new here. But that can’t be, because all superheroes have weaknesses. So why is it, that I would get the idea that someone is trying to use subtleties in the medium of movies to influence my outlook on certain things? Oh, that’s right, it’s because there are fucktons of people out there who are battling over the hearts and minds of the masses.

Maybe that's why I'm confused
^Sorten Muld – Bonden og Elverpigen (lyrics)^

What do you get, when you try and unconfuse someone who is not confused? Like say, I am a someone who already has the same ideas about perfection as you. If you think that I am someone who does not share your views on perfection, and you start hitting me with concepts specifically designed for those with opposing views, how would I react to those concepts? Nodding agreement? Or is confusion the more likely outcome. After all, wouldn’t you be preaching to the converted? That leaves me with no other conclusion than to wonder why in the fuck you are talking to me at all. Recruitment? Initiation?

 Some kind of security check?
^Renegade Soundwave – Cocaine Sex (LP original)^

Here’s the dealio, I started writing this whatever yesterday morning, and yesterday afternoon, I watched a coupla movies that confused the living shit out of me. Quite sure they confused me because I didn’t understand the characters and their motivations. But the movies were Split and Glass.

Split (2016 American Film)

Glass (2019 Film)

What in the fuck is a stealth sequel? 

The Wiki page for Split says that Split is “Hollywood’s first stealth sequel”. Anyway, I was kinda confused by the motivations of the character in Split. But then again, I had a tough time trying to decide if Split was a metaphor for government(s), more than it was a story about some nutcase living in a bomb shelter/prepper bunker.

The reason I thought the movie might be metaphorical, is because killing is the only answer. And not just and only killing, but theft, thievery and overbearing/obtrusive enslavement. Murder is also theft, slavery is supposedly illegal as is involuntary servitude. I’m kinda avoiding the topic of kidnapping because I’m trying to understand any points that Shyamalan might be trying to make in the subtext. Kinda sad really, because I sometimes feel that I can’t watch and enjoy a movie without nitpicking the fuck out of the story for “hidden meanings”.

Le sigh

It gets worse tho, because I then watched Glass. Oy vey, it only got muddier from there.

^public enemy – lost at birth – Apocalypse 91…The Enemy Str^

Glass seems to focus on the concept of ‘Due Process’.

Due Process

‘Due Process’ is top down. That means in order for the concept to be valid, it must be respected and honored from top to bottom, at all times.

This is the Achilles’ heel of every superhero, and the eventual destruction of every supervillan…when and if to respect someone else’s rights. I guess this is why the concept is ever-present in comic books. You’ve got people who are sick and tired of waiting for the slow wheels of justice to turn, and they take matters into their own hands. We’re talking about folks here who likely trust these systems of government implicitly, and when these governments and their systems don’t deliver? Anger and rage are swift amongst the converted.

These governments get their due and proper from us after all, on time and without fail, otherwise these governments and their arms of retribution are swift and firm with us. It’s almost as if these government are indifferent to our taxpayer-on-taxpayer crimes. Wait, I meant to say citizen-on-citizen crime(s). But yeah, this third party is indifferent as to what has transpired, and even if anything has transpired. After all, they are late to the party. But at the start of the movie Glass, the “heroes” are being accused of denying criminals their right to ‘Due Process’. In other words, the government wants their piece of the action. Ironic that this character who accuses the heroes of denying rights to ‘Due Process’, themselves denied the heroes their rights to ‘Due Process’.

I’m not going to spoil the movie further, but I’ll just say that both movies are some really great stories with fucktons of flaws. I almost get the feeling that these flaws are intentional, only because I know that Shyamalan is a clever motherfucker and a great storyteller. But let me add one last thing here real quick…

Good Samaritan Law

Yes, whether you know it or not, there are indeed laws that dictate behavior. Laws that eradicate choice completely, and lead to a ridiculously twisted web of “what I would have done in that situation” types of debates.

/me rolls eyes
^Madeleine Peyroux – J’ai Deux Amours^

giphy

So…there is a law…it states that you must stop and render aid if you see a car crash.

So…there is a law…it states that you cannot carry a pocket knife on your person.

So…there is a car crash in front of you. You stop because you are legally obligated to do so.

So…a person in one of the cars is trapped because the seat belt is jammed from the impact.

So…the car is on fire.

So…you have no way to cut this seatbelt because knives are illegal to carry.

So…you are required to be a superhero, but your hands are tied.

So…this law required you to stop and watch/witness this person burn to death as you stand helpless.

Yep, it’s a mess.

Good luck!

^Renegade Soundwave – Thunder^

Don’t ask me how in the fuck this started off with contemplating the concept of defects in your own religion’s mythos, and wound up contemplating comic books and movies. Just kinda…happened that way.

^Los Twangers – Vista Cruiser 69^

Is it possible to plan chaos? I bet a healthy dose of order would help.

Sorry, just really lost in this concept of onscreen retribution and/or vengeance. But then again, I guess onscreen forgiveness would be boring as fuck. A superhero wandering around absolving criminals of their crimes? What a snoozefest. The hero could just as well stay home, kick their feet up, have a beer, eat some Doritos and watch television. That would be a good show model for product placement tho.

Missive From ‘Merica: Defective Detective

*/lights up… /drags… /streams smoke…*

Had a little bit of a hiccup with Cade’s latest missive, below, Dear Reader. Apols! Hopefully you won’t find your enjoyment diminished ❤

*******

I have come to the conclusion that my normalcy is defective.

Defective normalcy...I have it

I have the same normalcy as anyone else, it’s just that my particular batch was maybe brewed after the factory had been in business for a while. Not quite the same as the first few batches.

An acquired taste?

^Junkie XL — Crusher.. High quality.^

Everywhere you turn, there is someone waiting to tell you what a fuckup you are. How wrong you are. How inadequate you are. What you are doing wrong. Usually because you are doing a similar or same something in a different way. Kinda makes you wonder how you’ll eventually react when someone tells you that you aren’t a fuckup. Like, would there possibly be some groups or people out there who might seek to take advantage of such channeling? You could win a lot of converts by being accepting of the mutants and defects. Assuming there are indeed people out there looking for some place to go that is. Could make you look quite powerful when you kick a mutant in the teeth.

DATELINE: 20,000,000 BC

LOCATION: Antarctica

LOCAL CLIMATE: Temperate

CONTINENTAL ICE COVERAGE: 0%

So…if 70% of the planet’s current freshwater is stored on the continent of Antarctica, and if all this shit melts the oceans are going to rise almost 400 feet and drown us all…

Q: What were the continents up to 20 million years ago?

A: ???

Yeah, I kinda get it, ocean levels were higher and a lot of shit that is above water now was below water then. As recently as 500,000 years ago, the place where my stinky ass currently sits was completely under water as part of the Gulf of Mexico/Atlantic Ocean. But there are some things that aren’t adding up. Maybe I should think on this further and reach some conclusions before writing about it. Otherwise, I’ll wind up sounding like a complete moron. Can’t have that. Gotta learn to tow the line(s).

*WTF, Clicky!*

*The tweet’s been deleted? …/squints… Bugger! Dear Reader’s not gonna know what Cade’s referring to. Shit, shit, shit… /pinches lip… Oh we’ll fink of sumfin. It could turn out ironic…*

It occurs to me that there’s no such thing as majority or minority when it’s just me and you. If I am “black”, and you are “white”, how do you justify these ancillary labels in a singular context? Do you really see yourself as an individual carrying the entire power of “the white race” when you encounter a person from another “race”? Because if that is so, you are likely also lugging around all the power of the human race, which I guess would include “minority peeps”. To go ridiculously further, this also would mean that you are also in possession of the powers of your gender, and all the powers of the opposite gender. I guess you’ve also got all the powers of the planet, which means you’re in possession of all the powers of the Universe…

Holy shit...you are GOD! 

Lemme bow down to you. Or maybe it’s as simple as, you’ve got what you’ve got, I’ve got what I’ve got, and what we choose to do with that is kinda up to us in the moment and moments of our individual lives. Let’s change directions.

How do you treat other life and on what do you base how you treat it? Plants? Animals? Insects? Bacteria? To get more specific how do you treat dogs? Cats? Fish? Skinks? Skunks? Roaches? Butterflies? What about less-organic stuff? Cars? Computers? Dishes? Rocks? Desks? Chairs? Punching bags? Siri? Alexa? Water? Air? Sand? Does it matter whether a certain something is “yours” as to how you treat it? Like say, you baby the hell out of greenery in your own yard, but all you do is complain about the greenery in other people’s yards? You may even utilize municipal types of powers to enforce your will on others in order to make their yard look more pleasing to your own personal sensibilities?

Phantoms...we are full of them
^Renegade Soundwave – The Phantom (It’s In There) A – 1989^

I woke up to that tweet staring me in the face, and I admit that it confused the fuck outta me…

*Clicky! There are only three people in world who might possibly understand that… /rolls eyes…*

…It made sense in that, wait, is this lady someone who is experiencing some perceived inequality because of her age, gender and race? But that’s the obvious. “Society” doesn’t appear to owe me a damn thing, nor do I expect anything from it.

That said, I talk almost incessantly with a white, middle-aged woman, and she’s got all kinds of interesting and meaningful things to say. So perhaps it’s not whether or not you have anything meaningful to say, as much as it’s a matter of whether or not you say it. Most writers are quite timid. They hesitate as to what to say, and how to say it. As a result, we tend to latch on to popular concepts, say what everyone else is saying, and what you say gets lost in the noise.

No big surprise there

Maybe it’s a matter of you not having anyone to say your piece to? Invent them. Might wanna keep in mind they are fictional tho. Don’t want your creation to become a bogeyman. Sounds like you’ve already got enough of those in your life.

Bad behavior inspires...

Icelanders tire of disrespectful Instagram influencers

…more bad behavior. Yep, tourists behaving badly gives officials the ammo they need to behave badly themselves. You can imagine where things will go from there. On the surface, the story is suggesting that Instagram is to blame via the “influencers” that utilize social media to make massive monies. They spend money to travel to Iceland, to make stories, so they can take these stories take back home and make money off selling them via their social media accounts.

If you sought to control anything and everything, how would you know when you had achieved your goal? Been seeing a lot of “globalist” types of stuff rearing its head recently, and I gotta wonder how in the hell you would know that you and yours were “in control”. We live in a pretty dynamic place that appears to be cyclical, not to mention that most dictatorial regimes throughout history are paranoid as FUCK.

Wait…maybe that’s it. When “the powers” get paranoid, they do so because think they are in complete control. Makes sense. Power is scary.

^SOULWAX – NY Excuse^

You think it possible to latch on to a static point in space within the confines of a planet’s atmosphere? Like detach yourself completely from the “earth dynamic(s)” by latching onto a certain something that most will likely say doesn’t exist/is an impossibility? Yeah, I don’t think that’s possible either. There’s nothing within close proximity to our planet that represents a static point in space which is opposed to other points in space. Of course, there are those Alpha Loops and Omega Gates. They kinda operate that way. Not saying they actually exist, but they might.

INCOMING SONG LYRICS!!!

(song/video follows)
“The Number Of The Beast”
Iron Maiden
“Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short…
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number
Its number is Six hundred and sixty six”
I left alone, my mind was blank.
I needed time to think, to get the memories from my mind
What did I see?
Can I believe that what I saw that night was real and not just fantasy
Just what I saw in my old dreams
Were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me?
‘Cause in my dreams it’s always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair
The night was black, was no use holding back
‘Cause I just had to see, was someone watching me
In the mist dark figures move and twist
Was all this for real, or just some kind of hell?
666 the number of the beast
Hell and fire was spawned to be released
Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
As they start to cry hands held to the sky
In the night the fires are burning bright
The ritual has begun, Satan’s work is done
666 the number of the beast
Sacrifice is going on tonight
This can’t go on, I must inform the law
Can this still be real or just some crazy dream?
But I feel drawn towards the chanting hordes
They seem to mesmerise…
Can’t avoid their eyes
666 the number of the beast
666 the one for you and me
I’m coming back
I will return
And I’ll possess your body and I’ll make you burn
I have the fire
I have the force
I have the power to make my evil take its course
Shocking

I am completely and totally shocked to my foundations…circa 1982.

Ever hear of a guy named Hisashi Ouchi? I went to high school with the dude. He was like a brother.

Those are lies

I don’t know Hisashi Ouchi at all, but it appears that someone named Hisashi Ouchi does in fact exist. Or, he did. I guess it depends on how you view who exists and how as to whether or not the guy still exists, and maybe even if he ever existed. Now, I know where I am going here kinda, so let us run over to Google real quick and see if Google has anything to say about some dead fuck named Hisashi Ouchi.

Tokaimura Nuclear Accident

That’s the very first Google result. No mention of Hisashi Ouchi.

But he's in the Wikipedia article

He’s also mentioned in this article from 9 October of 1999.

Japan’s worst nuclear accident leaves two fighting for life

So who the fuck is Hisashi Ouchi? Or rather, who was he? Just a corpse now. Prolly buried in a lead-lined coffin 30 feet underground and covered in cement, and just laying there being all radioactive and “festering in his own juices” as someone I used to know might say. But the person that would have said that is dead, too. I wonder if dead people get together and play cards. Have open-mic night, talent shows or community sings.

 Digress

Do you think it is possible for people to just…disappear? I wonder on what criteria we base “appearances” and “disappearances”. Convenience?

Camera 2

I admit that I’ve recently been intentionally…erm…”steering against the current”, as it pertains to the automation(s) of YouTube. I haven’t been actively doing it, just trying to be a bit unpredictable with what I watch, why, and for how long before I actively try and go off the rails, so to speak.

That said, there was an unusual appearance in my recommended last night. One about a disappearance. Five disappearances in one event actually. They’re now referred to as “The Yuba County Five”. Odd name considering the unbalanced equation that remains. Oh, and why this “Yuba County Five” is also referred to as “America’s Dyatlov Pass Incident”? The only thing that I can figure is…

metadata

Trying to connect unrelated things. Odd considering how “irrelevance” typically figures in to more “official” types of thinking/doing. Too much dependence on Occam and popular interpretations of shaving/cutting devices? After, not everything is equal.

Did I lose you there?

Don’t sweat it.

We’ll find you.

Okie dokie RoobieDoobie, we’ve got two Dyatlovs providing various forms of passes, passages and passings, one Yuba, and we’ve got a bunch missing at various times + others gone. Let’s us see where these two Dyatlov connections are according to Google Maps.

Dyatlov Pass, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, 624575 to Chornobyl, Kyiv Oblast, Ukraine

Wait…is it Chernobyl or Chornobyl? Or is it Wormwood? For some reason, “wormwood” always makes me think of pecans, and pecans always make me think of iodine. Is that a weird way to think? Is this a bad time to bring up the book of Numbers from The Bible and think about who we consider as “missing” and who we consider as “found”, and when?

Digress

Let’s see where Dyatlov Pass in Siberia is located relative to Yuba County Cali…for…ni…a.

Dyatlov Pass, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, 624575 to Yuba City, California

I wish there was a way to add more than just an origin and destination. I guess if you are logged in to Google, you can pin multiple locations, and on the Google Maps mobile app you can add up to 9 destinations, but I can’t do that here. There’s also mention of Oroville in that Yuba 5 vid. Flows, dams, and containment vessels. Coincidence?

Q: Do you have to be alive to die?

A: Says who? 

The concept of “the deadman” has reared it’s head on many occasions over the past several years, but I honestly have no idea what “the deadman” is, nor what it represents. Not really a strange concept, just a foreign one to me in the current context. Lots of talk about dying and being reborn while you are still alive, so I wonder what death is.

Why is it always and forever so bitter?

Can the future tell me who I am?

Or is it telling me who I will be?

I guess I’m wondering what Elijah would have to say on the topic of transitioning from one plane to another without actually dying here. No connecting flights for Elijah. Non-stop all the way. What a ride that must be.

Loyalty
^Deadmau5 – My Pet Coelacanth (1080p) || HD^

‘Tis strange that I’ve been writing for almost 4 years non-stop, and I’ve not crossed paths with this concept. How in the hell does someone write about spirit and spiritual journeys and spiritualistic types of crap for 4 years, and not once directly encounter the concept of loyalty? Welp, in my case, it seems to have taken me pondering the concept of superiority (with a dash of ownership) and then writing a blog post about it, in order to bump into loyalty.

^Computer Data – Healing^
Umm...

I got a question. Like, what about when ravens are naughty or nice? Does that shit filter down through the human generations too? Is that why people hate/fear ravens? Makes you wonder if one mouse stealing once piece of cheese fucked things up for the rest of mice forever and ever. I guess if this the is case, it’s obvious that seagulls have LONG since given up on giving a single fuck what people think of them.

lol

Gulls aren’t known for having the best of table manners. That said, does legend and/or folklore have any effect on loyalty or loyalties? Myth?

^Depeche Mode – “But not tonight” extended mix (remastered)^

If the conservative political parties and/or conservative wings of political parties are in fact so powerful within British politics, how in the holy hell did The UK wind up with a nickname like “The Nanny State”? Conservative what? Socialists?

I was just sitting here wondering if that is the real difference between The US and The UK with respect to politics. All political parties in both countries are inherently socialistic, they just have different approaches. Different pathways to the same Utopia.

I saw a vid the other day on “populist” political leaders in Europe, and in it, someone made a comment about “direct democracy”. All I could think of was that “direct democracy” isn’t democracy at all. That got me to thinking about “The Nanny State”, which got me to wondering why the Tories/Conservative Party are considered to be the party to beat.

And when in the hell did being labeled “a Thatcherite” become a positive trait? I thought you Limeys hated the fuck outta her.

^Unexpected Wave Compilation (CRAZY!)^

Been pondering a movie I watched called “The House With A Clock In The Walls” for almost two days now. The movie wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t good either. Based on my watching, this movie should have been good, so why wasn’t it?

Good characters, good story, good actors

Is it the witchcraft angle? Too metaphorical? Too much of a kid’s movie? That last one could be the kicker. I honestly couldn’t tell if this was A) a kid’s movie that was darkened a bit for the sake of parents, or B) an adult movie that was lightened to attract a more family audience.

Why would God/gods/goddesses not be “here”? Like, do levels of removal actually increase the scope of influence?

Certainly seems to be the case in politics. Sure, you can onesie-twosie converts by taking time to go out glad-handing face to face with your constituents in the street, but the more you remove yourself, the more you can reach because the methods for reaching, change. The more you can influence. Just pondering why an entity might not actually occupy the realms they’ve created. Like say…I doubt many public servants actually occupy any public housing blocks that they support/fund. Which that makes me think…

Q: Are politicians in The UK required to actually live in the city/district/borough they represent?

A: ???

Can someone live in St Mary Hoo or Thundersley or Ugley Green, but be elected to serve in some capacity in Southend? Is St Mary Hoo considered Rochester? Is Thundersley considered Benfleet? Is Ugley Green considered Bishop’s Stortford?

Why can’t I reach the Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Hays microsite?

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Hays Microsite

I went to the Southend website to check on council vacancies, but I cannot get to this “microsite” where the jobs are supposedly listed. Is it because I’m in Texas? You guys/gals regularly checking for broken links? Who the hell is “Hays” anyway?

Is this a Jadu/content management problem? Is it a Hays problem? I guess ultimately, it’s a Southend-in-Sea Borough Council problem.

If I join the EU, can I come live in Southend?

Brexit and you

Or would it be better to apply for UK citizenship at this point. Yes, I know that I as an individual can’t join The EU. I also realize that UK citizenship is not an option for me. Just thinking hypotheticals. Like, why can’t I as an individual, join the EU?

Maybe that’s why the thing seems to be crumbling. You’ve not offered EU citizenship as an option for individuals. Wait, but you can’t can you? That would mean Kosovo could potentially slip in under the radar by getting all their citizens to apply for EU citizenship.

Offering citizenship would give you access to shitloads of cheap labor. Oh wait, you’ve already got that.

It’s almost like the great Okie migration of the early 20th century is happening again right before our eyes. ‘Cept we are seeing foreigners piling into Europe from the south and the east. Wait…that’s where the Okies came from too.

In Dubious Battle

The Grapes of Wrath

East of Eden (Novel)

Maybe some of you Europeans should give those books a read. Might learn something. Reading Cannery Row, Tortilla Flat and The Pearl couldn’t hurt either.

Is it hypocritical of Romani people(s) to shun outsiders, not welcome wanderers, and/or to not provide respite for anyone is who is just passin’ thru?

Is hypocrisy not much more than a convenience?

As far as hot spots go, what causes a hot spot as it pertains to abstractions like love? We tend to amass and consolidate feelings of love, then point that love in a particular direction. Focused. Specific. Doesn’t matter what it is either. From commerce to causes, cakes and concerts, to cocks or coochies, we are capable of loving all kinds of stuff.

So what gets our focus where it is? Need? Want? I’m thinking more in the direction of government here tho, so does government want to provide? Does government need to provide?

Q: Is it the responsibility of government to provide, or to ensure that needs are met?

A: ???

I’m just wondering, because it seems to me that finding those in need is not a problem. You could send the city council out to wander the streets on any given day, and they’d likely see fucktons of people on the street in need. The question is, what are you doing about it? And what about those in need who seek you out? Are you available? Can you handle it? Or are you a poor conductor.

I’ve not a fucking clue if loyalty creates hot spots, or if hot spots create loyalty, or even if the two are related in the slightest. Loyalty does seem to be a hot/cold kind of thing tho.

 You are, or you aren't

So what happens when you get a bunch of loyalists together? Does that create a hot spot? If so, what does the hot spot itself attract? More of the same? More of the same and more of the opposite, all at the same time? Did you know that a contraction of hot/cold is hold? A contraction of cold/hot is cot? On that note, lets us crawl into a cot and hold each other.

^Oxia – Domino (Morten Granau Remix)^

Maybe a problem that I personally have with loyalty, is the fact that I have to demonstrate it all the fucking time. Really makes me wonder where the problem with loyalty really lay. Trust? Someone having some trust issues maybe? Wrestling with honesty and what it means to be honest?

You’ve got a reach. Perhaps it’s a simple matter of your being completely clueless as to the extent of that reach. But yeah, you’ve got one. It affects people.
