The Darkener's Console

Opening the small mailbox reveals a leaflet.

Black Lives Matter —

I hate this term. It gives the impression that someone else’s perspective is at center stage and they’re feeling sympathetic toward the ‘poor little dark skinned people’, the ones who need to be stuck up for. “You matter too, sweetie!” ..makes me wanna wretch. What I’m saying is, I’m sad that we have not evolved […]

Collective Consciousness and mood swings —

The odds were stacked against him. Some days are just stacked so high, there’s no fighting it. Subconscious and unconscious cues and influences invade and infect your psyche and you are turned into a werewolf, a zombie. Blame externals all you want but the singularity persists that it is YOU, through and through. Coincidental mentions […]

“Nature’s Responses” —

Kill me and I’ll Kill you first I’ve already rehearsed You worried of fire and flood Of tainted blood Now buried in mud But you kept hurting me With white hot machines Your toxic regimes But now I can see And now you can’t breathe Ironic it seems So how does it feel? Now is […]

Positive Speed Sign —

I want to produce a radar speed sign that, instead of flashing and telling you to slow down if you are going over the speed limit (negative), shows an animation of balloons + dancing people when you are at or below speed limit (positive). I’ve actually wanted for a long time to be able to […]

Headphones —

“Headphones make their own rules of etiquette. We assume that people wearing them are busy or oblivious, so now people wear them to appear busy or oblivious — even without music. Wearing soundless headphones is now a common solution to productivity blocks. Baldwin’s invention for the Navy has become a social accessory with a explicit […]

Race —

This article is a very interesting history of Rock ‘n Roll music and the subject of race in its upbringing and subsequent widespread popularity. I’m not old enough to have experienced what it describes but the Internet is filling in a lot of gaps for me. It’s very interesting how *who* played Rock ‘n Roll […]

Super C —

I don’t know if I could ever play 2 player with anyone besides my old friends Travis S. or Johnathan F. – I take my Super C strategies seriously. There has to be a strong link and sense of collective survival, otherwise I just would rather go it alone. No offense, it’s just easier that […]

Lucy —

“It had to do with piecing together new thoughts in your mind. Why is it that people think it’s so evil? What is it about it, that scares people so deeply? Because they’re afraid that there is more to reality than they have confronted. That there are doors that they’re afraid to go in, and […]

Synchronize —

I picked up my bass for the first time in a little while. I ignored everything around me and just played for a few minutes. I was able to get lost in the melodies/loops I was playing fairly quickly this time. I realized that for having been away from playing for a while the purpose […]

Collective Consciousness —

Some days I feel like the collective consciousness has immense power. Like the stories you hear about large group meditation causing measurable decreases in crime of that particular area. I feel like when large national/world events (I’m looking at you, Democratic debates) seemingly cause even those who aren’t paying attention (me) to be in a […]

Feelings —

There are events in my life that have evoked immense feelings. These feelings are very much personal in that I cannot transfer them to another person in a loss-less format. Meaning, I cannot create the exact same feelings in someone that I felt myself during those events. And logically so – we are all individuals […]

Buzzwords —

“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 […]

The Building (Dream) —

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 […]

Amish —

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.

Mudvayne – “Choices” —

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 […]
