  • It’s what happens

    I read a tweet that said, “Loneliness is what happens when you don’t let people in.” Well, fuck and shit. That’s like saying to someone who’s dying, “Death is what happens when you stop breathing.” Yes, it seems actually true in a particular and peculiar kind of way; but, it’s also fucking stupid and shitty…

  • you’re so violent

    A: You’re so violent A & B: … A: I liiiiiike it. B: You’re kinda scary too.

  • Sigil for magical partners

    One of the recent things in my life is that I’ve been developing a relationship with someone who shares an interest in being magical partners together. One aspect of this came up as a suggestion from my partner that we might have a sigil of some kind to represent the combination of our emergent effort.…

  • the dream broke

    Some of the things you said last night and before matched with my nightmare about moving and never seeing you; really threw me for a loop. I think the dream broke. The invincibility of infatuation has worn away to reveal a bleak reality. What I’m left with is the sure and definite fact that I…

  • only option available

    Too many messages; did not read. I refuse to be put on the defensive by accusations and aspersions which seem to me to be more about you externalizing issues which you should deal with yourself. At this point, I am more certain than ever that the only option available for the future is not even…

  • Superstition

    For me, superstition is not characterized by choosing one metaphor over another labeled wrong, but rather in mistaking perception and metaphor for an objective reality; and to banish superstition is to realize this: that truth is never without subjectivity because any truth understood by a mind is conditioned by the limitations of mind, that metaphors…

  • The three stages of lamer ideation

    The Three Stages of Lamer Ideation   1. Emphatically Ridicule “That’s the stupidest idea ever. Where did you get that idea from?”   2. Secretly Internalize “…”   3. Claim Credit “You know, I’ve always said …”   B: Huh. Interesting idea. And, who’s idea is this that you’re taking credit for now? A &…

  • accomplishment

    A: I used to really be into that book when I was young. I guess I grew out of that phase. A & B: … B: So, not only did you actively cultivate your sense of radical close-minded ignorance, but are proud of the accomplishment?

  • the information being presented

    The material represents a diversity of ideas spread across time, culture and tradition. It is better to present these ideas without hiding them in order to get a better understanding of them. Sometimes this better understanding means also taking into account cultural contexts of where and when and by whom these ideas appear. So, it…

  • lifestyle

    I think it is possible to mistake for success a process that devours a plentiful resource, and fail to realize that as unsustainable. Also, there are inevitable side-effects and unintended consequences which can be attributed to that mistaken success, not the least of which is a serious lowering of expectations on what constitutes success in…

  • unaltered

    And that’s why I guess I’ll wait with baited breath for your stream of status updates in response with passive-aggressive quotes trying on various rationalizations and excuses in other threads and venues, hoping one will stick. But what you’ll no doubt fail to realize is that no matter how you dismiss any criticism, it is…

  • get well soon

    B: Judging from your actions, frictions and demeanor; I’d have to say that your certainty certainly appears to me to be indistinguishable from sickness. A & B: … B: Get well soon!

  • frozen hamburger patties

    Let me get this straight: you take a small set of old content and parse it into something new to post that as if it were new. Then you take that little bit of content you’ve repackaged and then milk that very same content over and over, forever? So, basically, you’re Saturday morning cartoons. Or,…
