“Hyper[insertwordhere]” is becoming annoying. I noticed this buzzword during the 2016 U.S. presidential elections and it seems to still be going strong. It’s annoying, but also interesting as a study in popular journalism trends. Trendsetters can use words like this to ‘boost’ their stories and ideas because of the effect of familiarity and repetition. Which […]

I had a dream this morning about a building. I had to go to the bathroom I had apparently been working I.T. in floors 1-3 of the building for the entirety of my career (20+ years) I went up to the 4th floor of the building (toward the top). When I got there, there were […]
“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.
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”.
Music is an ART, not an INDUSTRY.
I think I ‘sync’ more with 3/4 than 4/4.
Where sound lacks, looks help.
“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
She’s just gone to bed.
There is inherent beauty in minimalism.
Desalinization technologies Renewable (solar/wind) energies Open and moral A.I.

“The media” is. Rather, the media is simply a conduit. A platform. A “thing”. It can be used for good or for evil – to spread truth or spread lies. It 100.0% relies on whomever is using “the media” to choose the context, accuracy, editorial spin, on whatever facts or incidents have occurred. I think […]
You crave the wonderful heightened sensations and pleasures given from food, music, touch, and sight but your general stability becomes compromised – which manifests itself as anxiety to non-real issues, apathy towards effort and ultimately altogether creating an aversion towards the (at that point in time) seemingly underwhelming and boring world of sobriety.
Livestreaming platforms are all the same. Why do there have to be 5 different apps/platforms (Periscope, live.me, Stre.am, YouNow, UStream, I could name more) that all feature people doing nothing?
I remember my alternative name for this was, “International STFU Day” =p~
Does anyone really need instructions these days on leaving a voicemail? “Please leave a message after the tone. When you are done, hang up or dial # for more options. Press # to send a fax.” Seriously? Can I just have an option for a BEEP after the last ring finishes? Or, at the least, […]
I’m laughing at myself for simultaneously reading a Forbes article about 15 things productive people do differently and puffing off of my vape pen.
