Gravity is a Cruel and Harsh Mistress

Well! Today started off as a fairly productive day. I managed to wake up amazingly early, got in a little bit of online time surfing around in the early morning hours. Super early, like, when there's nothing but insurance commercials on TV and the sky's still a pinkish color. Surfed around online for a little bit, got to the post office and shipped some eBay items, went to my office and packaged some additional eBay items and made it back to the post office mere moments before they closed! Ha ha, score one for me! My little car didn't even have to break speeds, man. It was awesome.

The rest of the day was spent in various stages of busy. At one point, I manged to fall on/down some stairs..oof. Man, that hurt. Hips, wrist, hand, lower back, all amazingly sore. It hurts when I shuffle around, and I can only imagine it's gonna be fun trying to take a dump in a little while.

Ah well. I'm siting here trying to decide on what film I wanna watch. I'm really aching, and I can only imagine tomorrow's gonna be even worse. Geez. Ah well, things could be worse I suppose. If it's really bad, well, then I'll take advantage of my employer provided medical insurance and go to the doctor. Which I really don't wanna do. :( Times like this make me wish I had pain killers of some sort.

Speaking of poop, I'm gonna share my proof-of-concept for a Tshirt. In the spirit of the "Beef, it's what's for dinner" shirts comes "Poop: It's what was for dinner"

A Long Day

Ah, the end of another long day. Even though the work week is officially over, there's till no rest for the wicked. A long day of doing some work to the commerical building, handing some eBay matters and generally staying busy. Whew, I'm beat man. I'm currently sitting back, trying to relax before doing whatever the next task ends up being.

I saw that Villyne over at A Clever Blog is doing the A to Z Blogger Challenge. Even though I came back to this a little too late to get in on something like that, I might do something similar starting next month. I have to say that the hardest thing about doing this blog is the content generation, since I have no talent or skill or ability or anything, and I really do ponder long and hard about what stupid words I'm going to put up here. But it's interesting enough, as a creative framework, that I might give it a shot.

I've been working on doing a quick introduction to the Fourth Turning theory..covering the basics of the turnings and some first impressions of what this cycle has brought. It's a theory I've done some serious research and deep thought on, and I do put a lot of stock into it. I'd like to finish up the intro posts, then get into things a bit deeper..and I would put the next update (the Unraveling) tonight..but man, I'm tiiired. I just don't think that's gonna happen.

I'm going to end this with a brief little bit of randomness. I have a nearly three year old HTC Incredible phone. I've rooted it and installed a custom ROM on it, and it's still chugging by pretty nice..but at some point I'm going to need to get a new phone device. I'm happy to have extended the the life out some more..and I would like to have a new phone..but jeez man..with all that's going on I just can't swing a new phone just right yet. I can't justify it as anything other than a luxery, and that's just not cool right now.

And so readers, I leave you with a oldie but a goodie: a break dancing pixel ninja.


Not to be confused with the Pixel Ninja

Don't Try the Buffet

Allow me to take a break from my previous rants due to not feeling well, and in lieu I post this funny picture.

I'm not certain but I'm pretty sure that says China Cock

They Tuned Out, Shot Up and Fucked Off

"Like, wow man. We're going to single handedly destroy the entire post-war fabric of society. Woah."
The Baby Boomers. The Prophets. The Children of the High. The cause of the problem. If I had an infinite amount of space, I couldn't possible begin to write all there is to tell about this horrible generation. Every facet of this saeculum is defined by this generation and their actions, attitudes, beliefs and actions. It cannot be stressed enough that, in my interperation, that the Boomers are at the very heart of everything that's going on in the United States, much less the world. We are dealing with what we all feared would happen: the final conclusion of the Boomer generation in their finally-obtained positions of power.
They are the Children of the High, because their generation came of age during the High Turning. They knew the very best of what Post War America had to offer, the spoils and the splender. They got to experience the modern "golden age" in ways that no one else could possibly imagine. Not even their parents, due to their experiences during the last Crisis, could fully appreciate just how good the Boomers' childhood was. Not like they could. These over indulged, spoiled, self-centered and amazingly narcissistic children would cary all of these traits and more with them, as they started to come of age during the Awakening.
The Awakening was a period of time starting roughly, in my view, with the death of JFK and continued until roughly the end of the 80s. It was during this period that the boomers came of age as teenagers, then young adults, then actual adults approaching middle age...and just look at what happened. I'll get into this in greater detail later...but for now ponder the greater implications of the just what happened when the spoiled Boomers grew up and began touching the larger world...and how all of that would come back to bite us on the ass in the end.

A Strange Symbol of an Era


An interesting picture. Then VP Nixon and family, with Walt Disney at the opening of the Monorail at Disneyland in 1959. The incredulity of that statement is just mindblowing. I can scarely think of any one picture that might define the postwar End-Of-The-High period. In just a few short years, the wonderment that this picture captured would be America left the High and began it's looong trip into the Awakening.
