Missive From ‘Merica: The Devotion Notion

On Tuesday evening, Dear Reader, Cade Fon Apollyon and I remote viewed Martin Scorsese’s insanely brilliant movie, The King of Comedy, together…

Bernhard Black KOC

*Itsa black comedy, Clicky… /lights up… About a group of crazy fuckers…

*/drags… sleb an’ self-obsessed…*

nietzsche insanity obervation

*Oh, they were completely full of it…*

*No, Clicky! …/coughs out smoke…*

devotion (n.)

c. 1200, devocioun, “profound religious emotion, awe, reverence,” from Old French devocion “devotion, piety” and directly from Latin devotionem (nominative devotio), noun of action from past-participle stem of devovere “dedicate by a vow, sacrifice oneself, promise solemnly,” from de “down, away” (see de-) + vovere “to vow” (see vow (n.)). From late 14c. as “an act of religious worship, a religious exercise” (now usually devotions).

In ancient Latin, “act of consecrating by a vow,” also “loyalty, fealty, allegiance;” in Church Latin, “devotion to God, piety.” The application to secular situations came to English via Italian and French; sense of “act of setting apart or consecrating” is from c. 1500.

*Gawd, I hope the little mite is thinking, ‘Mum, you’re a cunt’…*

*Itsan ever-present fear, Clicky… /nods head gravely…*

… And I was thinking about writing a post about it, Dear Reader, but fortunately for all of us, Cade has come to the rescue with a new missive. Have fun…

 *Noted…*

… But don’t go crazy. Enjoy! 😀

^Two Door Cinema Club – Bad Decisions (Devo Remix)^

You found something. Obviously something that someone threw away, but for some reason, you found it. Was prolly an old and busted piece of garbage to whomever tossed it, but it’s brand-spanking new to you. Your eyes sparkle with hope: this new something contains a deep well of possibilities. You weren’t even looking for it, yet there it was.

What a joy, eh? 

Yeah, you’re baffled as to why someone wouldn’t want this, but that kinda makes things all the more sweet. You see something in this castaway that someone else could not see. Maybe I can make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Accept you as you are. Maybe not.

/shrug
^Alberto Bof – Rachmaninov: Vespers Bogoroditse Devo (All-Night Vigil) – Alberto Bof Remix^

Speaking of skin, your lower legs feel like you are wearing socks. Only problem is, you aren’t wearing socks, you never wear high socks, and you haven’t worn socks of any kind in ages. You also have these weird feelings in your back. One second, things feel normal, the next second, your back feels like...it feels? Like, when things were normal you felt nothing, and then all of a sudden you could feel your back even tho there’s no stimulus. You aren’t wearing a shirt, no one is touching you, it’s not windy, yet you can feel the entirety of your back.

Sometimes too, it almost feels like everything underneath your skin is, erm, sliding around. Maybe even feels like there’s another you squirming around inside of and just under…you. Something strange going on there for sure. One minute your feet and toes are there, the next minute, gone. I can only wonder what is going on in there.

^BATTLE OF THE TAPES: SCOTCH, SHIPPING, AND DUCT VS [PSORIASIS, PICKING, PEELING]^

We aren’t our outsides, are we? Outsides, insides, all-the-way-though-sides…we have a lot of sides. What I kinda have wondered for a while is how some of our bodies handle the wet/dry/wet/dry cycles on the outside. We’re wet on the inside, but for the most part dry on the outside.

So what happens when we shower and take baths and stuff. Nevermind all the products we use in the name of hygiene, we seem to be obsessed with picking, pulling, prodding, poking, polishing, buffing, squishing, scrubbing, sanitizing, hydrating and rubbing the living shit out of our outer shells. And often. Products, products, products and more products coming out of our fucking ears, and still it’s not enough.

Time to call on the professionals
^MASSIVE DEAD WART REMOVAL (this kid’s a stud) | Dr. Paul^

Going without might be something to try. Fast for a bit. Let your body try and find itself for a bit. It’s a scary thought, I know. Been there, done that. And it’s tough to do considering the society we live in. Lotta social pressures on you to look nice and smell terrific, and you gotta do this 24/7. But a “repair” in one area has to have a knock-on effect, yeah? Your formerly scabby looking knees’ skin looks sweet now, but whatever mighta been behind it looking like that in the first place is maybe still there. Not to mention that your new knees are going to have to integrate and all the surrounding stuff is going to have to adapt to these changes. Just thinking aloud a bit as to why things appear, you have them removed, and they return.

Q: After some change, what’s the one thing that remains?

A: You

Not suggesting that change isn’t possible, But changes based on changes? Like, there was a change, you didn’t like the change, so you had the change changed?

Seems...a bit loopy
^DJ Jazzy Jeff, Peter Piper Routine^

There are all kinds of roadmaps for informing us as to what our present form(s) can and cannot endure.

EX 01: Your best friend gets attacked and eaten by a Leopard. It may become clear that a Leopard attack cannot be endured.

EX 02: You get caught out in the rain, and you do not melt or suffer any other ill effects. It may become clear that being rained on can be endured.

EX 03: Your new best friend gets attacked by an alligator and their arm is ripped off, but they survive the attack. It may become clear that some alligator attacks can be endured.

EX: 04: You go to McDonald’s, eat two Big Macs in a single sitting, and don’t immediately die of a heart-attack. It may become clear that “fast food” can be endured.

EX 05: Your new best friend commits suicide six months after the alligator attack because he lost his job, no one else would hire him, his girlfriend dumped him, and all women look at him like a freak now that he only had one arm. It may become clear that some alligator attacks can only be endured for so long.

EX 06: You line the backyard of your home with Oleander bushes. Your family dog, intrigued by these new plants, eats parts of some of them and dies, all because you were unaware that Oleander is toxic. You may decide that some landscaping flora can be endured, and some landscaping flora cannot be endured.

EX 07: Your new new best friend is studying to be a pyrotechnician, decides to mix some flash powder on a cold and dry January day, and blows himself into chunks. You may decide that mixing certain pyrotechnic compositions in low-humidity environments is unlikely to be endurable.

EX 08: You’re depressed at losing three friends and your dog, depressed that you had to rip up all those Oleander bushes, decide to drown your sorrows in a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Old No.7 Tennessee Whiskey, take a sip, and wince in repulsion. You may decide that some things can be endured without the assistance of that nasty shit.

Yep, all kinds of stuff out there which act as indicators as to what your form maybe can and cannot endure. Lucky for you, that road is paved with the blood of others. Are you giving them their due by paying attention? More than that, are you paying attention to the correct things? More than more than that/those, are you looking at the correct and incorrect things in the correct ways? Abjective? Objective? Subjective? All of those?

What a mess
^Whip It Devo (Philip Steir Remix)^

Kinda at odds with a lot of things. Not trying a something because someone else failed.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Quitters never win, winners never quit.

Get (insert need/want here) or die trying.

Do or die.

Never give up, never surrender.

It’s like a throbbing clusterfuck of a cliche clash. Weird when cliches are at odds. Maybe one of the tricks is to live long enough to see where certain cliches are and are not applicable. Survival is the goal of life, yeah? And yes, I’m thinking about the lockdown plus all the shenanigans that went on prior to, during, and now after.

Divisions

Exposing them. Yeah, the hidden ones. The ones that are rumored to be there, but supposedly no one has actually seen them. There’s no “real” proof they exist. But now that the divisions are exposed, they’re likely to multiply. Dividing…divisions…to multiply…divisions.

Sounds conspiratorial
^Flip It! – Multiplying Fractions Jingle (Devo Remix)^

Not being a joke. Of all the items on my list of “things not to be”, “a joke” is not on there. That’s me and my own list tho’.

Digress

The guy is pretty good, the music ain’t so hot, so overall the whole thing is kinda mediocre. Still, the “I ain’t no joke” at the end was a shade strange. Flexing I guess. I told you I could do it, I did it, and now I’m telling you that you got told.

^Devo – Crypt YouTube Cypher Vol. 3 Remix^

Was digging for Devo remixes because Devo keep appearing on my radar for some reason, and now I’m stumbling across some weird shit.

^DEVO – “Who Run It” Remix^

So far all these dudes appear to be fairly good at rapping/rhyming, but the music kinda sucks. Really, completely and totally sucks. Makes me wonder about the nature of flow within Hip Hop. How music and lyrics mesh outside of a beat or tempo. Rhyming isn’t easy, rapping isn’t easy, so once you get that down, you pretty much just need a beat to layer your vocals on. If your lyrics are scary fronting kinds of shiz, you’re gonna want something scary and/or dramatic for the music. Prolly why this next one seems to rip John Carpenter’s Halloween Theme. Which is extra weird because the picture is of someone wearing a Jason Voorhees hockey mask from Friday The 13th series.

Killaz
^King Devo – Computers (Remix)^

Speaking of killaz and killers, all kinds of music been killin’ it all over the killer map for a long time.

So yeah, take a break. Taking a break is a-ok. Unless of course you are the US Senate and you’ve been sitting for weeks on the bill that would provide for another round of relief payments. One way or another, people are gonna get what they want. Gives you another nice out tho’. Another reason to not provide another assistance check. The looters got theirs, everyone who stayed home and behaved is shit out of luck.

But yeah, breaks, they’re okay. Care for yourself by participating in self-care.

Skin is stretchy. Skin is elastic. Skin is kinda rigid. It’s flexy, but also has a kind of non-Newtonian fluid thing going on sometimes.

Q: Is it possible for skin to be stretched to maximum by migration of the connective tissues?

A: ??¿??

Maybe your skin feels tight because it is tight, but not because of the reason(s) you think it may be. Chaffing, seasonal changes, etc.. Just wondering what happens when the tension is such that the servo reaches the stop, and I’m thinking of this within the context of light/dark/red patches which may appear on the skin from time to time. Some of those things appear, and they never seem to go away.

On a completely unrelated note, there’s only one comment on the video below, but it’s a damn interesting one.

Upon first watching, this video had 940 views, 33 likes, 0 dislikes, they’re playing pool, throwing dice, and the dude has a 56 on his shirt.

May mean some things, maybe not

Guy is pretty good tho’. Talking a lot of the same old shit, but pretty good.

^Devo Lucciano – Drill Time Remix (Slim Jesus Remix)^

Out next selection had 250 views, 12 likes, 1 dislike, has 8 comments, all appear to be favorable, the video was posted on June 14th of 2019, and there appears to be a need to travel to Tennessee.

Again, pretty fucking good on the rhymes, and this one is prolly the best yet as far as the creative elements of the background. Not the ambient effects or even the music so much as a weird resonance in the song as an awareness for need of creative elements during the song itself. This becomes really apparent during the outtro.

^Devo Bux – (prod by bloc remix)^

We’ve arrived at a rather depressing video involving some kind of breakup which has 185 views, 0 likes, 1 dislike…

prolly from the ex

…0 comments, was published on December 20th of 2016, the video ID is YWhFIISK1zI, and the channel where the video is posted has 49 subscribers.

December 20, eh? My oldest was born on that date, and me and whatshername got married on December 19.

three years prior to his birth 

Me and her are divorced, and I’m currently on the lookout for a ex. Is there a connection here? Are there any connections here? The tune is about breakup and there appears to be children involved.

Another one to fall into the “not bad at all” category, save for the fact that the music is awful. The tempo is good, the beat is good, the idea of some light traditional instruments in a song with fat percussion is cool, but it doesn’t come together real well in this instance. Tried to look up the original One Direction tune History and give it a listen, but I got yet another of those stupid-assed “Sorry, there was an error licensing this video” errors.

Digress

In the end, I guess this one is akin to one of those Disclaimer Of Liability ads you see in the personal section of the classified ads.

“From this date forward, I am no longer responsible for any debts other than my own.”

“I will no longer be responsible for debts incurred by anyone other than myself.”

^The Devo – “History” Remix^
-\- MOVIE REVIEW TIME -/-

The movie: Poltergeist – 1982 – Directed by Tobe Hooper (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame)

The review: Close Encounters with ghosts instead of aliens.

The extended review: I would imagine this was little more than a vehicle for domesticating and commercializing ideas in order to realize ET: The Extra-Terrestrial and sell it to a skeptical public. Close Encounters Of The Third Kind was pretty damn scary, and it still holds a bit of that scary edge for me personally. But this? There’s no wonder at all. No story. No reason. Just some lame looming idea of a family sharing space with corpses who are pissed that their headstones got swiped. The house getting invaded by fleas or roaches woulda been more scary.

Poltergeist seems to take the scariest bits from Amityville Horror, knock the rough bits off, surround them with shiny stuff, fill the direct participants with apathy disguised as ignorance and wonder, then sequence the events into some meaningless chronology onscreen. Every scene is going to contain something “spooky”, but the participants seem completely detached, and it makes me detach. If they don’t care, why the hell should I the viewer care? Like they’re caught out in the rain and wondering why they are getting wet. The scenes are long, the cuts are weird, I have not a clue what anyone is doing in any of them, and I honestly have no idea what story they were trying to tell except maybe Amityville comes to the burbs.

Tobe Hooper may have directed this piece of shit, but Steven Spielberg wrote it. So yeah, if you wanna see something of Spielberg’s that falls somewhere between Close Encounters and ET but has no aliens?

This movie is for you

Get ready to endure some of the worst acting you’ve ever seen tho. Somewhere between 1970’s sitcom and off-off-Broadway.

Interesting note – there’s a scene where Craig T. Nelson (the dad) is showing a home to some potential buyers. They are in the kitchen area of this home, and the kitchen is identical to the kitchen in Nelson’s own home, except one is green and the other is yellow. This brought back some memories of my own youth in that I grew up in a neighborhood like this. Cookie-cutter homes. Almost all of them are identical.

Now, if you aren’t American, you may not be aware that the 1970’s was a pretty hot time in the Cold War, and we Americans were fighting the dirty Communists. Strange that so much in this country called America was more or less the same, in a time when individualism was being touted as the only way to freedom.

Final review point(s): Not only does Poltergeist suck horrifically, it’s a hazard to anyone with epilepsy. But some of the special effects were pretty good considering the time.

You may be wondering what war has to do with hockey. Does sport or even gaming have anything to do with war? Actually, I have no idea what you may be wondering. I only know what I am wondering, and what I am wondering about is the nature of conflict, and when/where/how it manifests. Who are those at odds, why are they at odds, and how does this evolve into war(s) which will further descend into battle(s) and combat. There appear to be many wars and many fronts. Maybe the term “war” has been inaccurately applied. Would be a good diversionary tactic. Draw attention away from the real fighting. Dangerous tho. Two fronts. That primary front is gonna have to fall.

^The Prodigy – Funky Shit Perplex Version^

No idea how many of those links you may have actually explored, but all of them are quite interesting, and they’re all related in some way, shape or form. Some links are stretchy, sure. But they are related. What really tied it all together for me was the story on the Hells Angels MC/Rock Machine MC and their war in Quebec, and a Canadian cop named Benoit Roberge.

2014

Benoît Roberge, ex-cop, sentenced to 8 years for gangsterism

2016

Former Montreal cop who sold police information to Hells Angel granted day parole

2017

Former Montreal cop who sold information to Hells Angel granted full parole

2019

La rédemption de Benoit Roberge

Not only was he apparently playing both sides, he got 8 years, was granted day-parole after 2 years, and full parole a year after that. Now, I dunno if you’ve seen the video of George Floyd being murdered face-down on the pavement, but I can’t help but wonder what’s gonna happen if these cops aren’t charged with a crime. They were suspended, then shorty after that they were fired, but as of this moment, they’ve not been charged with any crime(s). And not only will they need to be charged, they’ll need to be convicted.

Q: What happened to guilty until proven innocent?

A: OOPS!!! What I meant to ask, was what happened to innocent until proven guilty?

They’ve not even been charged, let alone tried, so how can we possibly jump straight to a conviction.

Slippery. Very, very slippery this slope is.

^Nitzer Ebb – Once You Say (Celluloide Mix)^

Someone is about to show us the way. Heard a term last night called ‘T&Trace’. It appears to be shorthand for ‘Track And Trace’…some new Facebook something. Today, I hear that Twitter has started to label some or all of Donald Trump’s Twitter account Tweets as “misinformation”. That says to me that someone is getting ready to show us the way. Take us by our tiny unwashed hands, and guide us to the promised land. Not before the bank forecloses on our current residence(s) of course.

Hey, that reminds me, I know that many if not most people only own one house/one home. Some of us own zero houses/homes. Heard last night tho’ that Johnny Depp owns 14 houses? Like, personal residences I guess? His money and he can do whatever in the fuck he wants with it, but it’s strange for me to think of owning 14 houses. I guess maybe it’s possible that he rents some of them out, but to whom I wonder. The one home under discussion was a $2.9 million dollar horse farm in Kentucky? Who the fuck has the money to rent such a place, and why would anyone with that kind of bread be renting instead of buying?

Strange world

But yeah, someone is about to show us the way. President Trump appears to have the FCC looking into social media companies and their practices.

^Planetary Assault Systems – Haiku^

What in the fuck is a service company doing in the editorial business anyway? Twitter is a service. A communications service like AT&T or Western Union or Verizon. AT&T ain’t in the business of censoring my calls. They provide a service with some stipulations, if I violate the terms I am subject to my service being terminated, and if they violate the terms…well, they either make it right or are big enough to pretty much avoid any major trouble from am insignificant worm like me. Any violations by any party may be subject to further investigation by some government entity. But it’s unlikely that AT&T is gonna monitor and potentially censor or edit my calls.

What I’m trying to figure out is why Twitter is not breaking out from under the umbrella and adding some additional service. Twit Tour or TwitterSJW or Twit Sewer or something like that. You see only stuff that makes you happy. Wait…users already have the ability to create their own echo chambers. Why this extra layer? And why this extra layer within the existing architecture? Are they trying to circumvent moderation of accounts and pruning of accounts entirely by slapping accounts with some scarlet letter? Could also be that maybe Twitter is outgrowing their existing architecture, and this is a workaround. Maybe Twitter is wanting to sell? That said, I’m wondering if that last update to the Twitter TOS maybe had something in there that I didn’t fully understand at the time.

^White Pony – Falling^

I do know this, it would be funny as fuck if Twitter management is trying to influence the upcoming election. The so-called Russian election scandal in 2016 wasn’t sketchy enough, so, fuckit…let’s go whole hog.

Q: Is it possible that Twitter creates their own bot accounts, spam accounts, and/or scam accounts?

A: Like, via 3rd parties? Pays people to “hack” or otherwise exploit their own service?

Nah…unpossible. Why on God’s green Earth would someone bankroll a phantom army to exploit their own service.

A: I can think of some reasons

Relevance is relevant, and there’s nothing better than being relevant, even if you have to make yourself appear relevant via sketchy means.

Has a Julian Assange or maybe a fight club ring to it

Not to mention, why would someone expend the resources to attack someone who is already under attack? Especially if you are operating under the assumption that you are the one doing the attacking. Yeah, like Russia thinks they are doing the attacking, but in fact Twitter is actually attacking themselves. Kinda hard to get a punch in on someone who is already getting mobbed.

^Nitzer Ebb – Shame (Regis Edit) (2016)^

Pretty sure it’s impossible to pop a balloon that is not inflated. What’s that? You wanna know what I’m talking about?

I just got a question from the Whatever However Hotline, and the question centered around humility and how one achieves it. Supposedly, we all of us have a something called “the ego”, and we seem to accept this as being true.

We have an ego, end of story

By the same token, we all of us have the capacity to have humility, yet not everyone actually has humility. Occurred to me that a good way to pump some humility into someone is by inflating the ego, then popping that motherfucker. Of course, you could also inflate the ego then let the air out gently. Guess it all depends on your motives and maybe your immediate needs. If you want someone with stiff knees to bow, yeah, you maybe wanna humble them. But if you want someone to have some humility, maybe the slow-release is the ticket.

You're driving the bus, you figure it out

Hope this either answers your question or gets you pointed in the correct direction.

Sitting and watching a movie with a friend, and I get a notification on my phone from YouTube. I’m subscribed to this person’s channel and have been for years, but, I don’t recall ever clicking that “notifications” bell thingie. That said…erm…sometimes I’m really not sure what to do. Not sure what to make of things. Is there anything to be done here? Or is there some course that needs to run?

^TAUNT SATAN IN THREE EASY STEPS…^

I’ve been following her on YouTube for years, and I’m honestly not sure what to make of that. I guess she/her channel got demonetized by YouTube, she started making some damn odd vids, and I was left a bit befuddled. They’ve only gotten more strange, but I can kinda empathize because I’ve ridden that razor of being a complete castaway for some time now. Some of her vids from way back helped me through some tough times, now it appears she’s up shit’s creek without a paddle, and I’ve no idea how to help. Can I help? Should I help? Plus, I’m a dude, so most people will likely think I just want to help her out so I can get into her pants/knickers.

Q: Why would I want to be in her pants, when it appears even she doesn’t want to be in them?

A: ? substitute “pants” with “shoes” if you're having trouble with the analogy ?

You wanna get out and gallivant around, you best be healthy. There will be no sickies out mingling with all the vaccinated people. The compliant might become ill thanks to your non-inoculated and diseased self. Wrapped up in your own self-interest(s). Pathetic. You are a pathetic citizen.

Butler County lawmaker refuses to have temperature taken at Statehouse

From that article, here’s a direct link to the Facebook post, but there’s coupla interesting things:

Do you think if I weren’t a State Rep that he would have forced me? How is this any way to be treated?

Treated? How is that any way to be treated? Are you under the impression that you are to receive special treatment or get special privileges because you’re an elected official? Because you tout yourself as Chairwoman of Higher Education and because you claim to represent 115,000 Ohioans?

I’d guess you’re not just and only a State Representative, you’re also a US Citizen, an Ohio resident, Butler County resident, appear to be a woman, potentially human, maybe a gun owner or firearms enthusiast, a wage-earner, taxpayer…in short, you wear a lot of hats. Lots of hats means more rules, not less. Methinks your view of the layer cake may be a bit askew. But, “resent” is 2/3rds of “represent” so I guess maybe a healthy dose of resentment for what you were is required in order to become what you want to be.

Something else that has me scratching my head is…wait, this appears to have happened on May 27th of 2020. Did the Ohio Statehouse just reopen or something? This lockdown nonsense has been going on for months. Are you telling me that all this time, security at the Ohio Statehouse has not been upgraded/augmented to ensure that suspected COVID-19 infected people are given the boot off-premises? Temperatures haven’t been taken until now, and no one has been kicked off state property for being a threat to security?

Just checked the Ohio Legislative Calendar and went all the way back to January. While it would appear that some sessions have been canceled, it also appears that the place has been open for business through this whole thing. Maybe she’s been playing hooky from the legislative sessions, and this was her first day back to work in months. The only other thing that I can think of is that maybe she’s up for reelection in November. Let’s check that out.

BALLOTPEDIA-Candice Keller

Yep…her term as State Representative of District 53 expires 31 December 2020 when the 133rd Ohio General Assembly adjourns. She’s only been in office for 4 years, and Ohio term limits say she can be in that position for up to 8 years. She’s gotta be running, which means she’s campaigning. Let’s dig some more.

Controversial Butler County State Rep. Candice Keller Loses GOP Primary for State Senate Seat

DOH! She’s trying to upgrade from State Rep to State Senator. Ohio has 33 Senate districts, looks like she was trying to take the 4th Senate district, but lost in the GOP primaries to some dude named Lang.

Ouch

Not only will she not be moving to State Senate, looks like she’s out of a job entirely.

X: Where’ve you been?

Cade: You talking to me?

0: “Where’ve” is not something you see every day.

Cade: No it isn’t. Was just thinking that I can’t recall the last time I used “where’ve” in a sentence.

X: Where’ve you been?

Cade: This is about SoPi, isn’t it.

X: Maybe.

Cade: I forgot about it.

Z: That didn’t stop you from wandering off past SoPi-Z tho, did it?

Cade: You saw that did ya?

Z: …

Cade: Yeah I know that I have a few languishing, but at the same time, I’m getting close to the end.

X: This is about Victor.

Cade: I know. Had a lot of thoughts, wanted to write…

X: And completely forgot about SoPi-V in the process.

Cade: Did indeed forget.

Z: That didn’t stop you from wandering off past SoPi-Z tho, did it.

Cade: Is there an echo in here?

X: Zed. I wanna know about zed.

Cade: Having a tough time deciding when and where to use the Omega character in SoPi-V.

X: And if.

Cade: Correct, and if.

X: Why would you mix and match the Z/Zed character with the Omega character?

Cade: Good question. I don’t really know if Omega is representative of Z/Zed in this instance.

A: Are you changing any other characters?

Cade: No.

A: So why would you change Zulu to Omega.

Cade: Welp, my thought was that maybe 0/Zero could be better represented if I used Omega instead of Zed.

X: Flow.

Cade: Correct.

0: I’m gonna change the subject real quick. Do you really think it possible to create a verbal message in time, and postmark that message for delivery thousands of years in the future?

Cade: I don’t see why not. If we can transmit a message electronically and estimate how long it should take that message to travel a certain distance, I don’t see why a message couldn’t be sent from way back in the past to arrive in the now.

0: And you realize that we are talking about an audible message, right?

Cade: Welp, this idea isn’t a new one to me. But that thing about blackbodies the other day, plus some discussions with a certain someone about how events which are seemingly impossible to predict may in fact be predictable?

X: The short being, this is the first time you’ve given serious consideration as to how to explain to another how communications over time might be possible.

Cade: Correct. I’ve given the matter a lot of thought, it makes sense, just never expected anyone would want to hear about it.

X: And now, someone wants to hear about it.

Cade: They asked a question, it took me aback, I don’t know if they actually want me to go off on a tangent about how I see how this may be possible.

X: Relies too much on some risky leaps of faith.

Cade: Sorta. I would imagine the primary question is likely to be “what is the source?”

X: Bingo.

Cade: We make a lot of assumptions predicated on our own current abilities.

T: I think you may wanna explain that one a bit further if you can.

0: Try not to hurt yourself.

Cade: Noted.

X: Source.

Cade: Source and sources. What interested me was the potential delaying types of mechanisms.

X: Blackbodies.

Cade: Correct. A capacitor of sorts. A timing mechanism.

Z: Like…The Synchros?

Cade: The Synchros Of Time, yes.

Z: And what are those, prey tell.

Cade: Um…can we get back on track?

0: You were on track?

B: DOH!

T: Woah nelly.

X: BOOYA!

Cade: lolz…touché.

X: You were just looking up Interferometry. Do you even know why?

Cade: In order to send a message from a time to a time, you’re likely going to have to have some pretty accurate cosmological clocks.

A: Have you considered the length of the message being encoded with an iterative, and then placing that message in a stasis?

Cade: That’s what I was just thinking. If the dimensions of a blackbody were known, the message could be angled in such a way that its trajectory would basically keep it in a (for the most part) steady state for a certain period of time.

A: And what about the space the blackbody itself occupies and it’s proximity to the target/message recipient?

0: Not to mention that you’re going to have to take decay into consideration.

Cade: Maybe that’s a property of a blackbody which has not been taken into consideration.

X: Conservation of energy?

Cade: Perhaps.

X: You’re basically describing coiling an audible message like a clock-spring within a blackbody or some other space, and that message will remain within that space for a specified time, at which point it will leave that space along a certain trajectory for delivery.

Cade: You said it, but yeah I was thinking it.

X: And no decay.

Cade: Potentially. With the right calcs, perhaps keeping the string in unoccupied space might limit or even prevent decay or any kind of degredation to the message.

Z: Would need to be some awful stable particles and energy.

Cade: I’m not trying to make things more difficult than they need be, but surely the vectors themselves could potentially be utilized to reinforce some kind of referential integrity.

A: You’re attempting to avoid another layer.

Cade: Conservation of energy doesn’t make much sense if your throwing several megawatts behind the transmission source just so that a coupla hundred watts make it through.

Z: You’re lost.

Cade: I am lost. We’re discussing what equates to farting into a jar, closing the lid, then burying it in the sand for a thousand years so someone can eventually dig it up, open the jar, and smell the fart.

0: lolz…um, don’t you think that “speaking into a jar” might have been a better analogy than “farting into a jar”?

Cade: You’re probably correct. But we are talking about audible messages here.

X: Audible messages over time.

Cade: Supposedly, not much energy in those.

A: Depending of course, upon who you ask.

Cade: I don’t think Science puts much stock in “intent” nor “intentions”.

X: What about opportunistic relaying.

Cade: Now we’ve got arrays.

X: We need to get the message through.

Cade: So much of this seems to be based more upon unpredictability than predictability.

Z: You’ve absolutely no faith in absolutes.

Cade: Hey, I’m a product of my environment.

X: SoPi-V. May I make a suggestion?

Cade: Lay off Omega…noted

X: Three in one.

Cade: Four, actually. But who’s counting.

Z: …

So yeah, when I started writing this earlier today, it never crossed my mind that I would come up with a visual representation of some concepts about messaging over, time from a time to a time, and SoPi-V would be hatched.

Wanna see?
^Jay Lumen & Gary Beck – Strange Fruit (Original Mix)^

Straight up lied to you. Not gonna reveal SoPi-V for a while.

2. This thing is already 9 pages long;

3. Prolly best that I do not reveal SoPi-V until some stories I’m working on are complete;

4. I got hit by a twist or two with respect to that blackbody shiz.

The District Attorney is likely only to go for what they think they can win.

A QUESTION FROM THE WHATEVER HOWEVER HOTLINE!!!

Q: Cade, why do you write about the things you do, and why do you continue to write about them in the way that you do?

Cade: Great question, and I can only give some answers which may not be “the” answers.

A1: I grew weary of subcontracting my understanding out to others. One day it kinda became clear that I had been farming my thinking out to others. I own the land, but someone else works it. And this is by no means an attempt to berate those who have taught me nor to degrade what their assistance has provided me. Plenty of people throughout history seem to have figured out some amazing stuff pretty much on their own, and yet we seem to live in a time where “you can’t figure out anything for yourself” is a quite common theme just about anywhere you look – I’m too stupid to bake a cake from scratch, I’m too stupid to jar my own pickles, I’m too stupid to fix my own toilet, I’m too stupid to do my own taxes…No, no citizen…sit back, relax, leave it to the professionals. Modern life is too big for you to make it on your own steam.

It became clear at some point that maybe there are those in the world doing my thinking for me, and maybe that these same individuals and/or groups don’t necessarily have my best interests in mind/at heart. Kinda jarring actually. Maybe even horrifying.

A2: I have access to quite an amazing tool called ‘The Internet’. Loads of information is relatively easy to access, and its full of parity, same parity, opposite parity, disparity…you name it, it’s there. All kinds of contrasts and flavors, and loads of stuff which I now have access to which I almost certainly wouldn’t otherwise. As such, my wandering mind can afford to stretch a bit with respect to not only what I research, but also the connections that I make. It’s a unique environment to search for paradox. Seemingly disconnected things which are in fact connected, even if their only connection is that they are not connected and/or not connected in the way(s) you thought they may have been. If I see an image, and it makes me think of something, I start writing about it, then a song comes up in my playlist which, oddly enough, also seems to have a connection with both the image and what I’m writing about? That’s weird. I’m likely gonna share that.

Premise: Archaeologists excavate large areas all over the world which appear to have been plots of land set aside for unknown reasons. Some contain unique arrays of various strange contraptions and devices, winding paths, minimalist infrastructure/construction, and many appear to have been near creeks, rivers and ponds, but no clear evidence exists as to any specific purpose(s). Religious rituals? Centers of commerce? Lavish social events? The growing of crops? The keeping of livestock? Public gathering places for political discourse? Primitive scientific studies? Astrological and/or Astronomical studies? Public execution sites? Carbon Dating reveals that sites all over the planet appear to show that these areas ceased to be used at almost the exact same time, so what happened globally to cause them to all be, apparently, simultaneously abandoned?

Conclusion: We may never be able to answer these questions.

^Chlär – Artificial Supremacy [BD005]^

The best way to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution (the right to bear arms) is to not repeal it at all. You can go around the impossible by adding/modifying other laws to where the citizen(s) themselves are to blame for their inability to own, purchase or possess firearms and/or other weaponry.* We’re right in the big middle of a situation where virtually every level of government is abridging a piece of the 1st Amendment – the right of the people peaceably to assemble – and I see a law which “expands” what is considered a felony as a method of deflating the relevance of the 2nd Amendment. If you are a felon, you likely cannot purchase nor own firearms of any kind. Also if you are a felon, you are a felon for life, barring some extraordinary something which you are granted a pardon or your conviction(s) are overturned. As such, convict someone of a felony, and the 2nd Amendment is immaterial. It’s almost like…spiritual warfare.

* I make this note because what is/is not considered “arms” can and does change. A taser, a laser, mace (the spray chemical, not the surface-tosurface tactical missile nor the bludgeon nor the spikey-ball flail attached to a stick via a chain) a railgun (and that’s “railgun” not “railway gun”), a claymore (the sword, not the explosive anti-personnel mine) a box cutter or some other utility knife, strong acid(s), radioactive material, a … erm … virus or maybe some other disease …shit like that. I can “arm” myself with just about anything. Question is, what is a something’s intended/designed use or intended/designed purpose vs actual use.

^Triple French Pork with Svetlana – Cooking with Boris^

People seem to be pissing themselves over what that UFO video “officially released” by the US Department of Defense actually shows. You know what interests me? What the video does not show. You might be able to engage an enemy aircraft, destroy it, but modify video filmed from the aircraft to show…nothing.

Why would that be beneficial? 

Welp…suppose China says USA shot down a Chinese aircraft. You could show that it was impossible for the aircraft in question to be involved because they were on maneuvers elsewhere in the world. See? We’ve got video proof right here! More disturbing tho, is the onboard weapons systems themselves. Could it be that a weapons system could be designed in such a way to display things which are not actually there?

Sure they could

We live in an era where it is not uncommon for a weapons platform like a fighter jet to never actually be within visual range of the targets they are engaging and/or firing upon, save for the maybe the advanced optics that a particular aircraft may be equipped with. Is it possible to bastardize systems to where they think they are engaging enemy aircraft, when they are in fact engaging commercial or maybe even general aviation aircraft or drones? I’d think it’d be possible. Not to mention that you might be able to access enemy weapons systems and have them chase phantoms or maybe even identify their own resources as hostile.

If what I am reading is correct, people are cutting corners to make more money selling their, what appears to equate to, medical products. Cheap fillers, potentially unethical or even dangerous stopgap measures instituted so that production may continue, shoddy manufacturing methods…business as usual kinds of stuff. Just like any business might do when they want or need more money. Maybe even say…companies who produce vaccines or other medicine(s).

What really surprised me about the LA fire… Oh wait, I forgot to mention that fire. But yeah, watching a video of the LA fire and that HUGE deflagration revealed a company called ‘Biohazard Inc.’ Stuffed right in the middle of ‘Green King’ and ‘Green Buddha’ is a something called Biohazard Inc…

Biohzard Inc.

That looks more like a medical supplies page or a chemical lab equipment page than a retail paraphernalia business. I guess they are a manufacturer and/or wholesaler. I sure as shit know their “About Us” page seemed kinda ambiguous. But yeah…medical suppliers. Medical manufacturers. I’m mainly wondering how much “product” it takes to generate a deflagration of that magnitude, and what in the fuck they are doing storing that much flammable material in the same place. Let alone storing it in a place surrounded by what appears to be all kinds of other businesses.

Not even a detonation of any kind. Even the video from a distance looks and sounds like a deflagration, but even the Public Information Officer calls it an explosion. Maybe I have an incomplete understanding of what an explosion is/is not. Explosion does sound cooler tho, and most people may not have a clue what deflagration even is.

The fact that the Universe is 50+ billion years wide and getting wider and older all the time, but only 13.8 billion years old, is mysterious enough. Especially when Science keeps selling this business about certain constants always being constant, like the speed of light, all in the big middle of constantly changing how old they think the Universe is. But you know what is really mind-boggling?

The symmetry

Yeah, the symmetry of elements + the symmetry of when they supposedly formed on the universal timeline. How in the fuck is it that Hydrogen formed left, and right, and up, and down, and every other fucking place? Moving outwards from the point of this Big Bang thingie, shouldn’t there maybe be Hydrogen up, and maybe Hydrogan down, and Hydrogon left, and Hydrogenoganogon right, and Hydrogodonlyfuckingknows in the middle? Not to mention that all of these elements are all said to have formed at precisely the same time.

But to be fair, maybe this is why certain things appear to be so screwy. Positive/negative charges, entanglement, things appearing older than they should be, things appearing younger than they should be, spooky whatever at a wherever, things without mass and things with mass, up, down and all around quarks, things that appear to be in multiple places at the same time, black holes, matter/antimatter, etc…

^747 – Aurora Centralis (Tin Man’s Spaced Remix) [AQR015]^

With all that in mind, you know what else bothers me? If all of these distant galaxies that we are now seeing are really and truly no longer there because their light takes so long to reach us…

Q: Shouldn’t we not be here either?

A: ¿¿ ? ¿¿

If that distant galaxy can be seen, there’s a good chance that galaxy can also see us, yes? No? Am I being naive here about when our own galaxy may have been formed? I’m just wondering about the nature of this so called Big Bang with respect to the formation of galaxies, and why and maybe even how a galaxy would be able to project matter and energy outwards if it had no place to go. But the basis of my thinking in this case is why is it that a distant galaxy is thought to be gone (even tho we can see the fucking thing), and yet we somehow are not also gone.

One would think there is somehow an equality as to why things not only exist within a scope to where these objects can observe one another, (irrespective of how the information is exchanged) but also that there would be some kind of symmetry to it. Even if that symmetry is muddy or fuzzy. There would have to be something at work which maintained the illusion that a galaxy 20 billion light years away is still intact and recognizable as a galaxy, when in fact the galaxy no longer exists at all and hasn’t for some time. Some force which maintains a referential integrity of points in space long after these points are gone (if they are indeed gone, that is).

^Leftwing & Kody – You Were (Original Mix)^

Gone. What is “gone”. Wait. Would one of these questions be more correct?

Q: What is “gone”?

A: ???

Or

Q: When is “gone”?

A: ???

Or maybe even

Q: Where is “gone”?

A: ???

Maybe “gone” is an amalgamation of every interrogative where the sum total of all = 0. If any of the interrogatives != 0, then Gone = False. That sounds like it should be a SoPi. Let’s make it so: SoPi-X. And in the spirit of SoPi-X being a formula for the calculation of null within spacetime, I think I’m gonna forgo any kind of visual representation of it for the time being.

NOTE: Black holes, “empty” space, massless particles, dark matter/energy and the like won’t count because they occupy space(s) and time(s) in measurable and/or observable ways. Neither will extinct species, dead people, people who have yet to exist, ancient civilizations, dead languages, dreams, memories, etc., because they too occupy measurable space(s) and time(s). SoPi-X is to be representative of a never-was which cannot be calculated and/or a never-will-be which cannot be calculated, except via the representation of a 1 via 0. (zero(0) being the “one(1)” in this case)

I’ll need to chew on whether or not both 1 and -1 need to be addressed, and when. Also need to give some thought to things which may have existed on timelines we are unaware of, and whether or not the potential exists for these things existing again.

^Tom Neville – Slide (deadmau5 Remix)^

SoPi-X = ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞

I never had a name for that ∞ = /_\ = ∞ thing anyway. Maybe SoPi-X is just the thing for that thing. Problem is tho, ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ has another piece.

Hrm

Plus, ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ is supposed to be more representative of how things bend + how endless cycles are formed + how things stretch. Even linear cycles which aren’t bent nor stretched at all.

Hrm

It is part of the SoPi puzzle tho, and the SoPi puzzle is based more on Pi than anything else. Still, the circular + non-repeating cycles aren’t devoid of linear concepts. In fact they depend on them as far as I can tell. Is/Is Not. Closed and open systems existing in the same space(s).

Thanks to a certain someone’s playlist, and a how-to video recipe for corn porridge, I learned a new word today.

Groat

Groat (Grain)

I’ve heard of oats, and I’ve heard of Groot, I’ve heard of grits, but not groats. Unless you speak Russian, you’ll need to turn the subtitles on. Interesting the feminine references, and there’s something about “bitch tekke raisins” in the subtitles…lol

Tekke

Dervish or Sufi lodge, eh? Interesting

What in the flying fucking hell is going on with all of these state-operated aerobatics teams appearing in the news? First there was the Blue Angels being mistaken for a UFO prior to the lockdown, then the Blue Angles started doing “appreciation” flyovers of major cities, then one of the Red Arrows were supposed to fly in to Southend Airport (but canceled), and now the Snowbirds are in the news?

To be fair, we are supposed to be knee-deep into the airshow season at this point in the year, but pretty much everything is subject to this lockdown, so no shows. That said, its damn weird that these military demonstration teams are appearing on the radar in some damn weird ways. Gotta sting tho that the Paris Airshow has been cancelled.

I was gonna interject something really meaningful and breathtaking here.

Something heartfelt and impactful.

Something to let you know that you are wanted…needed…loved.

Nothing is coming to mind tho.

Nothing cept you anyway.

I am thinking about you.

Hopefully, that’s good enough.
