Repressive Totaliity of Our System

These are pretty neat and I think everyone should have a gander. Sometimes I wish I giant Tsunami would just wipe out the entire human race, but most days I think their are enough cool people to make a difference. I guess we'll see what happens in the next twenty years eh?

I skipped PT11 cause it was hokey.

Here is the stunning land conclusion...

Hollywood Taoism

This weekend was long, lovely and exhausting. I'm still slinking out of it. In a few days I'm moving out of the city. I guess I had failed to mention it to most people. You can find me in the suburbs this summer, and then off to Normal. Yes, I'm moving back. And no I don't have a plan save for not having to say goodbye to S. all the darn time. I'll still be working in the city so I won't completely disappear into obscurity.

Making these decisions has been tough. Some people think I'm foolish, but I don't care. I know I'll be worlds happier. I'm going to miss living with my best friend, yes, but this will be the busiest time of her life so I am sure it will work out better. This way I won't guilt her into hanging out with me when she has a big paper due!

I still can't quite grasp the idea of distance and relationships. Not just the obvious romantic relationship (although that brings its own set of weights and measures). Sometimes it does't seem fair. Will life always be about balancing an equation of time, distance, and emotions? Is it selfish to say this is what I need to do at the expense of those you love? Or would it be wrong to deny your self your heart's desires?

Oh life was easy when all the decisions were being made for you, but that wouldn't be any fun.

I suppose I'm trying to make the best of all of the above. I might drive myself crazy, but it was bound to happen anyway right?

Here is a quick link to finish off a lanquid post: Lovely quasi-politico, always hilarious guerilla theater. I had the privilege of attending on Friday, and I can't wait to go back!

The Calendar Hung Itself

I am undoing my history of being an asshole. I haven't arrived, but I'm coming along.

Calculation Theme

We waited all winter, and the day finally came.

Hurrah for the farmer's market.

Mmm mmm good.

I want to grow everything all the time. Have you looked at your plants lately? Aren't you impressed? I am.


I solemnly promise myself that I will finish my vest tonight.

Mass Extinction #6

Death toll in China earthquake up to nearly 9,000

Myanmar struggled Monday to recover from a cyclone that killed more than 3,900 people and perhaps as many as 15,000.

I have the distinct feeling that the proverbial shit is starting to hit the fan. Things are changing at such a rapid speed that we don't even realize the gravity of the situations that we are placing upon ourselves and the world.

Agriculture, the beginning of the end?

From the article, The Sixth Extinction, by renowned paleontologist Dr. Niles Eldridge,"Indeed, to develop agriculture is essentially to declare war on ecosystems."
* humans did not have to interact with other species for survival, and so could manipulate other species for their own use
* humans did not have to adhere to the ecosystem’s carrying capacity, and so could overpopulate
* Estimates vary, but range between 1 and 10 million people on earth 10,000 years ago.
* There are now over 6 billion people.
* The numbers continue to increase logarithmically — so that there will be 8 billion by 2020.

I suppose the 90's was the calm before the storm eh?

Shell Shaped Painz

I hate being sick, and I hate my landlord.

I tried doing Wai Lana Yoga today. You know that woman on channel 11 that speaks in slow motion while doing yoga in a clown suit while winds blow and waves crash behind her.

That shit is hard.

All I want to do right now is cuddle with S. Seriously that's it. I got nothing beyond that.

Update Central

I have no internet (except at work and when I go to Dunkin Donuts) because my landlord broke our:
Cable Box
Television (smoke and everything)
dvd player
and bathroom light

He also sprayed all over our apartment for ants with chemicals in a milk jug to which he did not know the ingredients. Did not fix the outlet (the only one we can plug our microwave into) and the front screens that we've been asking for since we moved in.

I'm also sick. Ha ha.
