“Become a merchant in the gift economy” I am saddened this morning at a news story about a couple who had been cycling across the world who were killed by supposed ISIS members for no real reason other than the reported ‘they were non-believers’. However, their story is much more than that as I found […]

Maybe the Amish are on the right track after all. It’s going to continue to get harder and harder for the general population to discern between reality and a fabrication. I feel a recursive trend here. Maybe we really are living in a holographic universe.
A song from a long time ago that couldn’t be more relevant today in the United States (and around the world).. “Choices” (Mudvayne): Leaders are guilty of nothing They’re perfectly insane But if they’d point the finger at themselves Who would be left to blame Lead into grace Lead to corruption Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo A truth or […]
With a few exceptions I feel like lately I’ve gotten little respect in return for the respect I give others. What I mean by this is, I feel like I’ve gone just about as far as I can go to show and hint to certain people in my life that I genuinely care about them […]
When I was 5 or so I’d get to this point in the game every once in a while. It’s always stuck in my mind. Back then, “Shamus” was its own universe to me, an entire world in and of itself – and I’d found a “dead end”. It was mystifying to me, like standing […]
I don’t think “My Sweet Lord” sounds anything like “He’s So Fine”.
Because it’s a bittersweet symphony This life Try to make ends meet You’re a slave to money Then you die
I talk about Andrew Wood in this post. If you enjoy recent music history, this is a real gem.
Really good article regarding what it takes to shift soemeone[‘s|s’]opinion(s) given group mentality and a tipping point: https://www.asc.upenn.edu/news-events/news/research-finds-tipping-point-large-scale-social-change
“A US government report last year said the nation should invest more in supercomputing, to keep pace with China on defense projects such as nuclear weapons and hypersonic aircraft, and commercial innovations in aerospace, oil discovery, and pharmaceuticals.” But nothing about using it to study the global environment or, more specifically, reversing the trend of […]
Music is an ART, not an INDUSTRY.
I think I ‘sync’ more with 3/4 than 4/4.
“A lot of the time people aren’t really talking about the music itself- they’re talking about the social scene which surrounded the music. You’ll never be able to experience 60s Swinging London, late 70s Hip Hop, 80s Hair Metal LA or 90s Seattle for yourself. You can listen to the music, but that time and […]
I can’t stop listening to the songs these guys put out circa 2011. They are awesome.
Where sound lacks, looks help.
Yet another song that was stuck in my head when I woke up. I’d never payed attention to the lyrics though I’ve heard this song a million times. Like so many other mornings I don’t recall hearing this song anytime recently. For some reason, thinking that the reason for this is my sub/unconscious mind speaking […]
So I was reading this article on Slashdot about a reporter visiting a Flat-Earther Convention and they mentioned receiving a gift of non-Fluoride toothpaste (and began talking about the “conspiracy theory” behind it). This was my comment, which I think accurately sums up my thoughts on Fluoride: “So I’m not a “Flat-Earther” or whatever you […]
“A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.” I fucking love that quote.
Damn, if I just lose 1 more subscriber..lol
Just discovered libre.fm and Jamendo. All I can say is that I feel very satisfied to have found couple of decent, curated collections of Creative Commons licensed music. I’ve been listening to Jamendo’s Rock radio for a few hours now and it’s all really good. I think I’ve found a couple of new members of […]
I had a dream last night about my grandmother (my mom’s mom). She was about the age she was when I was very little, very chipper and happy, very aware and conscious. I don’t recall what we talked about but I feel it was mostly small talk. I wasn’t aware in the dream that she […]
This is what true artists do to make it. LYRICS: I’ve got my eyes open wide to the ceiling I’m lying on my back in the center of a room I’ve got a voice giving me a funny feeling Its telling me the world’s going to end real soon I’ve got to get a job […]
Ben Kenney is a madman. What an awesome song, what an awesome musician. LYRICS: If I die from Something so much less than smart Know you’ve always held my heart Even if we’re torn apart If I leave you Underdone and under whelmed Just remember how it felt Try to think of how it felt […]
She’s just gone to bed.
There is inherent beauty in minimalism.
Standing on your toes for a picture You know the recipe Wash through the masses With hidden corpses With your own forces With smiles and lies Comprimise Majority Kill me The stage is so relentless Watered down and bent, this The state is so relentless Bend, this

You know, I would hope that people in general would have understood that Facebook is free for a reason when they signed up. You need to keep your defenses up just because of the nature of their business. They sell ads, ok? With a network so large you need to expect that “big players” are […]
