Christmas In Cambodia

Advice to anyone wanting to travel that doesn't mind a few pot holes in the road or crazy traffic with no rules: VISIT CAMBODIA NOW!

  • Contains the largest religious building (temple) in the world: Angkor Wat.
  • Was central base of the Khmer Empire, that in it's day was one of the greatest empires in the world. They put much of their labour and energy into building huge temples.
  • People have been put through the absolute shittiest historical circumstances imaginable, but are welcoming, friendly and bend over backwards to make you feel happy!
  • Less tourists and touters than Thailand!
  • Angkor Beer is great!
Thats quite simplified and general but true!

The Perfumed Garden

This is a very belated tribute to the Late Great Legend John Peel, inspired by the book by Mick Wall that I have recently demolished while on holiday. Peel of course was a British public broadcasting institution for almost 40 years. Playing heaps of new and experimental music right up until his sudden death in Peru in 2004. He would make a yearly list voted for by his fans called the festive 50, so I have complied my own list...

Top 15 Songs on my MP3 player with song titles related in some way to traveling:

  • In Transit - Albert Hammond Jr.
  • The Passenger - Iggy Pop
  • Crosstown Traffic - Jimi Hendrix
  • Journey - Mestar
  • Going Missing - Maximo Park
  • The Ride - Shapeshifter
  • Climatize - Prodigy
  • Station Approach - Elbow
  • Some Cities - Doves
  • How To Disappear Completely - Radiohead
  • Superstation - Bressa Creating Cake
  • We Used to Vacation - Cold War Kids
  • America is not the World - Morrissey
  • You Can't Go Home Again - DJ Shadow
  • As Serious As Your life - Four Tet
It's just something to amuse me really, the intro was you don't think it's a tribute to David Letterman or Hi fidelity, but definately read the Peel book if you get a chance!!

Well I don't know exactly I can only speculate wildly or make something up.

Excess Baggage

Struggling with issues of insecurity, aggression,
emotions, time, eventual decay, ultimate collapse...
Find a place in the universe? hierarchy, structure, fascism,
the brat race, the system that tells us how to think, feel, act.
each given a ranking, who's above? who's below?
Shall we compete somehow to find out?
Wealth, strength, prestige, abilities, talents...
Build them up to knock 'em down!
all of the above?

This does not really make for the most entertaining narrative!

more like scraps of thought hastily (ha silly) compiled
slapped on to the internet before they can be forgotten
or destroyed by the wastages of life, whatever that means. wink wink nudge nudge

Pretty much if something sounds/looks good to me at the time I will investigate or over-analyse it for as long as I can be bothered, and this is all just a log of that. Not entirely sure why, but I've always been motivated by statistics, records, chronicles, the name on the spacies game at the local chip shop, name in the wet cement, something to be looked back on.

Basically however I can leave my mark in an anti-obvious why. So people will find it without too much fuss (perhaps with ease), but not until a wee bit later. By that time it may have less significance, and have less influence over any future events. But at least I can save it here in the old thought shed. Mental storage depot. That way I don't have to keep thinking about it, and can go on to the next thought worry free. Because I want to remember it, but the next thought may change things alot more, or be be slightly more sensational to the wider audience. But I was not really going for them... it was just for a future me (sans De Lorean ?) and those that will search just a little further. Dig just a little longer, curiosity driven, can work out the context from connecting the specifics, and vice versa.
If you think this is total bull$hi+ then fair enough, each is entitled to their own opinion, free speech yada yada, don't agree but defend your right to be a prick, yada yada. I'm not the thought police nark, but this is my wee bit of cyberspace not yours thank you very much so take your loverly opinion write it on your own blog or whatever and we'll all be fine!

Maybe I do have a vague, over complicated notion of the earth and existence in general. I dwell on the past/present and future, procrastinate how I want and just how I like. Muck about with the random things that most others forgot about or never noticed. Talk about something more than actually accomplish it.
I speculate on the unknowable and postulate on the unthinkable.
I can guess the future.
Rewrite the past.
Believe what I want and as I see fit. At least I admit it.
Then write an psudo-essay on it, with bad grammar, mispellings, made up words, poor paragraphs, lack of cohesive structure, narrative, conclusion, and/or purpose.
And loving every moment? Well at least partially enjoying if not hoping that this will come in handy at a later stage. Not caring too much though if it doesn't. It was never here.
So what if I live a dream, partially delusion resulting from thinking about so many different worldwide media/political/everyday events that you can only really focus on your own life anyway. So you will always have bias, entrenched racism, fear, xenophobia, contempt for the poor and weak, disregard for other inhabitants of the planet we won't meet, blind hatred, blaming natural disasters or unavoidable problems on an easy/marginalised scapegoat. Or are these just reasons or excuses that help to justify/maintain the status quo (infighting, nationalism, warmongering, elitist domination, arms races) and make sure that a worldwide unification or consciousness never develops? We're all citizens of the world, it just depends how far outside your turf you can see.

See there is no target market for a rant like that!
So if you read it your my key demographic!
Love you audience and crave your attention always...

Yours marginally

Self Motivated

'There's another man within me
that's angry with me' (
Sir Thomas Browne)

Things not to do:
  • Don't order them around or tell them to do things without explaining why.
  • Don't tell them not to worry, or that they're lucky it wasn't worse.
  • Don't talk down to them or not listen.
  • Don't reassure them everything is all right when it isn't.
  • Don't take their anger or emotions personally.
  • Don't get emotional or excited with them.
(From HR manual: "Effects of prolonged stress")

'Within limits of normality, every individual loves himself. In cases where he has a deformity or abnormality or develops it later, his own aesthetic sense revolts and he develops a sort of disgust towards himself. Though with time he becomes reconciled to his deformities, it is only at the conscious level. His sub-conscious mind, which continues to bear the mark of injury, brings about certain changes in his whole personality, making him suspicious of society.' - R.V. Wardekar in a pamphlet on leprosy

Parallel universes exist - study

Was 'Sliders' a documentary?

I heard about this study from the Colbert Report and then found the story online. It was published in NewScientist. So then I just had to reproduce it here for your interest. It's weird that scientist's study stuff that you talk about when your wasted, I thought that was more for those studying Arts...

Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as "one of the most important developments in the history of science".

The parallel universe theory, first proposed in 1950 by the US physicist Hugh Everett, helps explain mysteries of quantum mechanics that have baffled scientists for decades, it is claimed.

In Everett's "many worlds" universe, every time a new physical possibility is explored, the universe splits. Given a number of possible alternative outcomes, each one is played out - in its own universe.

A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at his lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the same driver will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the motorist recover after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative scenarios is endless.

It is a bizarre idea which has been dismissed as fanciful by many experts. But the new research from Oxford shows that it offers a mathematical answer to quantum conundrums that cannot be dismissed lightly - and suggests that Dr Everett, who was a Phd student at Princeton University when he came up with the theory, was on the right track.

Commenting in New Scientist magazine, Dr Andy Albrecht, a physicist at the University of California at Davis, said: "This work will go down as one of the most important developments in the history of science."

According to quantum mechanics, nothing at the subatomic scale can really be said to exist until it is observed. Until then, particles occupy nebulous "superposition" states, in which they can have simultaneous "up" and "down" spins, or appear to be in different places at the same time.

Observation appears to "nail down" a particular state of reality, in the same way as a spinning coin can only be said to be in a "heads" or "tails" state once it is caught.

According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by "wave functions" representing a set of multiple "probable" states. When an observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into one of these multiple options.

The Oxford team, led by Dr David Deutsch, showed mathematically that the bush-like branching structure created by the universe splitting into parallel versions of itself can explain the probabilistic nature of quantum outcomes.

Broken Down figures

"Let's Get Liquefied!"

Want to buy the Magna Carta?

A rare copy of the Magna Carta, the document that enshrined civil rights in English law, is to be sold in New York. The copy owned by the Perot Foundation is expected to fetch more than $20m (£9.94m), auctioner Sotheby's says. The copy on sale, sealed by King Edward I and dating from 1297, is the only one in private ownership. King John sealed the original Magna Carta in 1215. The 1297 manuscript, bought by H Ross Perot in 1984, is due to be auctioned in December. It was on view until recently in the National Archives in Washington. (Source: bbc)

Which U.S state is (apparently) known as:
"The Land of Enchantment"?

  • This state has the highest percentage of Hispanic Americans (comprised of both recent immigrants and descendants of Spanish colonists).
  • Also known as "The Colorful State" (possibly a reference to the fact above)
  • More contemporary than Mexico?

Jump cut life style

Unfettered creativity is one of the most powerful manifestations of subversion possible, for it offers us all a taste of freedom.

Don't believe us
We're all cultural prostitutes.
Abolish work.
Steal time.

Passion destroyed is reborn in the passion for destruction.
Destroy bourgeois culture.
Power to the people!
Question everything?
Smash it up.
Poetry must be made by all and not by one.
A taste for change, satisfied by a change of taste.
Whatever doesn't kill power is killed by it.
My heart still hurts from last night.
Governments are failures.

Depression is the obvious extension
of boredom in consumer capitalism.
Living has become reduced to the economy of space
Much more can be said on these matters. Go ahead

All of the above were selected slogans taken from the following...

The Paradox of time...

Author Unknown

The paradox of time in history is that we:
Have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but have less
We buy more, but enjoy it less

We have bigger houses and smaller families
Bigger churches and smaller congregations
A multitude of prayers, but very little faith
A blessed life, but lack of gratitude
A loving God for our blemished hearts

We have more conveniences, but less time
We have more degrees, but less sense
More knowledge, but less judgment
More experts, but more problems
More medicine, but less wellness

We have multiplied our possessions,
But reduced our values
We talk too much, love too seldom,
And hate too often
We've learned how to make a living,
But not a life
We've added years to life, not life to years

We've been all the way to the moon and back
But we have trouble crossing the street to meet
A new neighbor
We've conquered outer space, but not
inner space
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul
We've split the atom, but not our prejudice

We have higher incomes, but lower morals
We've become long on quantity, but short on

These are the times of tall men, and short
Steep profits, and shallow relationships
More leisure, but less fun
More kinds of food, but less nutrition
These are the days of two incomes, but more
Of fancier houses, but broken homes

It is a time when there is much in the show

And nothing in the stock room
A time when technology can bring this letter
to you

And a time when you can choose to make a

Anonymity Breeds Contempt

If everyone had an opinion the world might explode....

"In the old days the public vented their spleen on rogues by pelting them with rotten eggs and squashed tomatoes. The stocks were a prominent part of life -the threat of their humiliation hung over village life. In our more modern - I hesitate to say civilised - age, these rituals haven't vanished with the wooden contraptions that enacted them: they've gone online. The new electronic free-for-all better known as the internet and in particular the blogosphere has become a modern-day stocks. Its anonymity has created a 21st century arena for hurling abuse; the virtual equivalent of soggy vegetables.

Online there are no limits (last week a report dubbed the net a Wild West of crime) . It seems anything goes. Web contributors seem to have little compunction about letting it all hang out. It used to be talk radio was where nutters congregated to have their say - but there they ran the risk of the talk-show host putting them down with a scathing remark, or in extremis pulling the plug. On the net there are precious few moderators.

We all know that sitting at a computer it is easy to get carried away, to feel that because you are in a virtual medium everything you do or write is somehow separate from the real world; all those respectable judges, actors and policemen out there who have been subsequently prosecuted for downloading child porn know all about that. But from the really sick offenders to the city folk forwarding emails about their exes which end up all over the world, or to our own perhaps over emotional outpouring in an email, it is easy to be lulled into a false sense of omnipotence: the sense that your actions have no consequences. A one keen blogging friend put it to me: "Do you Know why I love blogging? Because no paper would ever print what I can get away with online."

Everyone has the odd ungenerous thought or bitchy aside but generally we keep these thoughts to ourselves. Blogs contain the remarks nobody dares say at the dinner party for fear of censure. Forget Jerry Springer and trashy daytime television, when our fingers hit the keyboard we seem to lose all sense of decency or propriety. We thought we'd moved on from pelting people with rotten eggs."

Hyper Intuitive

Back by popular delay.
Read between the lines...

Partially unmotivated, totally undecided
sporadically confused (all reasons to vote)

opposing through existence
resistance to any force that gets too powerful
braving the onslaught, eating the brave.

Destruction by seduction. Unconditional corruption.
Distracted by stars, game shows and cars.
formulas of nonsense

More and more delusional... less and less equality.
political and social upheaval was fine in the sixties
but we've been convinced that revolution wrecked the world
blame political correctness and the civil rights movement
compare them with terrorism, communism and evil
philosophies that don't place money first
anything but the free market, privatisation, corporate greed
multi-national market forces set the price
so now if you can't eat... starve!

Don't believe the hype!
I can't hear what your saying...

De clutter my life (where to start? --> in the mind)
gears of time, shift in metal process. Pimp my cranium!

The Overly Dramatic Truth

Who is right? Who is left?

Want to get your opinion out?

(Don't we all?)

Then why not set up a special interest
or single/multi issue website
to preach your message out:
(as I have done)

Water Worries

The Devil's Pizza

Victory at all costs? <I do not agree with the opinions expressed here (or the videos)

Exit strategy now?

How can you fight against an abstract concept?

Apparently: We've already had one 9-11 we son't need another, but who's got the right answers to make the world safer, not just make certain militant groups less stronger. You're still going to have thosae under lying issues (e.g recent US foreign policy, support of Israel in Palestine, historical interpretations of past events, etc..) are going to make certain disenfranchised people commit horrific acts. Because just like hawks in the pentagon/whitehouse they believe their ends justify their means. Because they see authority abusing its power, or societies turning their backs on communities and other horrendous stuff that would make you start to hate and project that hate toward the enemy/other side. The different. The bastatdos.

In hindsight historically certain wars seem necessary and other don't. Really none of them are entirely necessary at all, but inevitable. Due to situations arising from conflicts of interest, lack of resources, (overpopulation?), intensive military build-ups driven by greedy arms manufacturers (supported by the Mass Media Murdoch Industrial complex markets) they are always going to happen. While the few control the many, and we live in pseudo democratic think tanks run by markets for outside profit giant pyramid scheme, all going to the top. What can be changed? What is always going to happen? Tyranny can be brought down, but is usually replaced by the devil you didn't know. Only time will tell. Can't we all just get along? Well no unfortunately it doesn't seem we can...

What's Wrong With Weird?

Right about now...

Experiment in the woods

The Humans are Dead

Not Crying

Karma Banque

Capitalism Unplugged?

Best selling Games

Martin and Lewis

Only Black and white from a distance
under a microscope the grey area is visible
formations of information
experimental anti-social psychology
or just a bit of randomness to past the day
and carve our niche in the world
skimming along the edges...

Service of Denial

Helplessness leads to compensation

flash bang
what is happening
it goes too fast at the time
what can I do
wishing you could stop it
Feeling like an observer
Token gesture
those you knew hurt
others flee
It's over
if only...
then afterwards you have all the time in the world to deconstruct what you saw, how it happened, what you could have done, what you didn't do. If you hang on to it, just that little too long... you hatch some plans to get your moment, and once you start you might not be able to stop, your committed your mind goes into overdrive. There's no point thinking of rational solutions you chose action. You can't put your shirt back on, once you've thrown it in the crowd, you better look like you planned to get bare chested. You've reacted, now it's you or them and then you just hope you have enough followers to avenge you, and try to build your gang/ faction/ clan/ cult/ tribe/government/ community/ militia group/ religion/ friends and family better bigger stronger fitter happier than the opposition... you get the idea, maybe? I think i'm gonna have to stop this one before I take the big step, or keep it completely under the radar... and I mean like that's all i'm gonna say even to you kind secrecy level. They better hope that something mellows me/distracts my attention/or gets me more angry, before I think of really funny (but completely legal and even safe) ways to exact my revenge!

FYI: I don't actually have a militia group or a government of my own (well maybe ones that represent me in parliament)...

If you haven't heard the new Interpol Album yet
I thoroughly recommend obtaining it (legally of course)
and giving it a damn good rinsing!
Especially if you liked the first two albums
as you will be loving it!
This post was an excuse to use their lyrics.

Small Cog in a Big Machine

If this is all just a big waste of time then it's not really a waste because time isn't really anything except numbers on the clock. Unless you believe that time is money, well then I'm afraid I may owe a bit, but tv owes me more. If music was being played during this time and was enjoyed then you can't call that a waste. Struggling now or just finding excuses. Never knowing if the best has been or is yet to come. Internally and externally, beyond and upward. Who will decide what was best to think about. It's funny how we can't always predict what is coming up next.

Occupational Overuse Syndrome

Repetitive Stress Disorder

All or nothing.
All or Nothing.
All Or NOthing.
All or no thing.
All or nothing much.
all or not very much.
All or some.
All or a fractional amount.
All or a little bit.
All and a little bit.
All and a little bit more.
All plus one.
Double plus All.
All with cheese.
All bar one.
All you can eat.
All you can borrow.
All or many.
All on hire purchase.
All with only a few strings attached.
All or a brand new Car!
All or significant armies approaching from the Eastern front.
All in all
All for now.
All for you
All or poverty.
All or social detachment.
All or back to the basement.
All sentiment and no action.
All or historical inaccuracies.
All or the time you did that thing.
All except a higher power.
All times infinity.
All nothing.
All over.
All True.

Stop trying to find the meanings and you might enjoy it!
Or vice versa?
But don't take my word for it....

Working Class Zero

This blog may have appeared to have been a little socialist in the last post, well if the shoe fits? Anyway from Lenin to Lennon I want to go back to my earlier discussions about The Beatles and their differing levels of talent. Not only in an effort to stir up opinions. I would go as far as saying that the Liverpool four-piece had two of the most talented musicians of all time and also coincidentally two of the luckiest...

Who can guess who is who?

Brief Band Bio: Collapsing Cities


Steve Mathieson (vocals/guitars)
James Brennan (guitar)
Stephen Parry (bass/keys)
Tim van Dammen (drums)

I pinched this description off some other site, but it does the trick:

Formed in 2006, Collapsing Cities has become one of New Zealand’s premiere Dance Rock Bands. Their blend of dance and rock has struck a chord with audiences around the country. Singles 'Elixir Always' and 'No Plans' off their self titled EP released in February 2007, have lingered in various Bnet radio top tens listings for months. Their new album is being mixed and is due for a July 2007 release

...written in PR-speak but I agree with the general sentiment.

Commodity fetishism

The Curse:

Please indulge my bleeding heart and excuse my irrelevance as I lament a general loss of craftsmanship, in a world where increasingly the victims are seen as the cause (of misery, poverty, confusion, etc.) and not the symptom...

The Synthetic Age:

In modern times we have managed to replicate many aspects of the past, except for the quality. I know what your going to say "Go live on a farm and stop using your computer then if repetition, ease and efficiency are such burdens. By the way you using a computer to write this.. and so forth." Well I said it anyway! People used to make those by hand you know! "Yeah sure grandpa!" Ok so I want the advantages of technology without the resulting negative byproducts. Doesn't everyone want their cake and everybody else's?

How to be ignored in popular discourse:

If the oppressed masses of the world were to unite or gain a class consciousness, present power structures would be meaningless as they are based almost solely on an unequal distribution of wealth and not, as we are sometimes informed, based on natural talents and abilities. If you really believe that vast wealth can be accumulated via 'hard work' or 'risk-taking' then shouldn't all inheritance be outlawed as it discourages people from doing both of those things. It only encourages people to vehemently defend so-called 'property rights' and strongly resist any attempts to redistribute wealth... (I'm not saying that your gonna get far by sitting on your arse, unless your dad was head of the CIA...)

By the way I am aware that almost all attempts at revolution are abused and exploited by those that eventually gain power, but this time it's different god damn it!!!

The interaction of politics and economics should be something we all have an opinion on, however much money we have or don't have.

The illusion of choice:

“The United States has only one party - the property party. It’s the party of big corporations, the party of money. It has two right wings; one is Democrat and the other is Republican.”
-Gore Vidal

(Ok so that quote focuses on America but it is relevant to almost all modern societies...)

“Those who cast the votes decide nothing; those who count the votes decide everything.”
Joseph Stalin (e.g Florida 2000)

Pleasing isn't necessary but can be rewarding
goes around, comes around.

Be Part of the Future!

Are thoughts meant to be fun/torturous or just functional things to accomplish, means to an end? Because I'll tell you they get tricky to deal with at times, and you can see why people try to escape, well I guess we all do in minor ways, but the ultimate escape plan is really the most selfish, it may help you (or seem to) but really your just disembarking and leaving the other passengers with the fare. They will have to pick up all the excess baggage. So what if I abuse my metaphores, they never say exactly what I mean anyway. Isn't it better to be ambiguous and let others read between the lines? Notice I usually ask the questions instead of answering them. Someone promised easy answers.

Power struggles can distract our focus from the true nature of reality, not continually maybe? More often at a workplace, club, school, family or other competitive environment, we must always establish a hierarchy, make some winners, some losers and nobody is to question any uneven distributions because this is inherent inequality is built into the pyramid structure of society to punish the lazy and reward the entrepreneurial, or speed up economic Darwinism I can't remember which...

Or maybe I've been watching too much $opranos (currently: S4 E2)

Deeply thoughtified funk soul brother

Deeply thoughtified funk soul brother

Whatever I write it could be a complete load of crap or it could be worth reading. It may appeal to something deep within you, although it may be really boring or totally untrue or really about something quite simple that you learnt a while ago that is not really interesting. But what have you got to lose? Its not like I can take knowledge away from you is it? I can't make you forget something utterly useful or condemn you to a life of boredom. Only myself. Happy travels. Amen, in a non-religious way.

repartition is for suckers, except me
repetition is for suckers, except me
reputation is for suckers, except me

as seen off TV

(p.s as you might have guessed the only purpose of that title was to grab attention/turn away undesirables, not that I'M elitist, I just don't care for riff-Raff, pop charts, boy bands, reality TV (actually I've been sucked in by a few (even the trump)so i must realise on some level that I am just as shit as any other sucker on the orbiting globe) ludicris claims, the past, the present and everything/nothing kinda ying yang complicated type situations that aren't fulfilling.

Not everyone particularly likes change, to put it mildly. In fact some people are down right petrified of it, and therefore act confrontationally toward it. Of course it might be pleasing in some ways if nothing ever changed, offering us comfort and stability. That would make nostalgia a bit irrelevant, but anyway, the fact is change is constant and anything we do to halt change will only be temporary. So our basic choice is learn to go with the flow, or exhaust yourself by fighting against the current.

I don't care if you have read it before...

Spoiler Warning!

Where am I when I'm not here?

I must admit that I haven't been keeping up my end of the bargain lately. The deal is I write obnoxious phrases and witty observations about things going on in my head, and you read/ignore it... But I have not been fulfilling my part of this codependent relationship in the past few months. I just wanted you to know I am aware of this situation and will be putting systems in place to prevent these sorts of breaches of conduct occurring in future. Well that works when you tell your boss, so should buy me a bit of time.

All bollocks aside though, I was spending heaps of time adding stuff to the "Twisted by Life" myspace page, which although I have created for this blog, is unofficial and anything said on there is a filthy lie. But seriously folks, it took me like an hour to put in the movies I like and other silly crap like that, that stuff sucks away time like some kind of chronological vacuum cleaner. But that's not all, my myspace craze then morphed into a animation obsession, so just to show you what has been stealing my time lately, here are some examples...

Mucking around with fruit...

Bottle Opener Blues ...and again

Red Chair Revolution

Esturary Madness

Tabletop sitter

Also tiny ones for people with good eyesight:

The roller dealer...

Peeps are p*ssed...

Grand Alliance

Okay the first one is the only one I really like, the other ones are more like experiments, but if I'm putting one here I might as well put a few more... Bear in mind this has slowed down my progress in reading my book (slowly progressing through the Dice Man), watching movies*, listening to muzac, drawing pictures, showing affection to others and blogging in general.

*more like rewatching the entire Sopranos back catalogue

Editors Note (not meant to entertain)


I may not put as many photos on here as I have previously...
Just ones that I really like, marginally respect or begrudgingly acknowledge. The main point is that I now have other places to store photos, so instead of putting photos in my posts I can just put links to them. Anyway this does not really matter. There are a few pics located on my my myspace space space. So will probably just use this space to talk crap, pester you with ideas that go nowhere, and generally continue to exist in the fashion I have become accustomed to.


Ever heard of a BBC comedy series called 'Absolute Power"?
If you haven't heard of it, it stars Stephen Fry and is a comedy.
It's about the honest and realistic world of PR, worth a look!

Production line of the mind...

The middle ground between idle thinking and crappy expressive writing!

Mixing up storm,
brewing up a cuppa...
notes from the edge...
inside the thought factory...

Too busy, as always. Time/money paradox. Need more time... but this must be sacrificed to obtain money. Which is required to acquire possessions which can be used to enjoy time. Which you can't use 'cause you are too busy trying to get more money! Endless cycle of labour used to further others aims. Means to an end. Our forebears had it worse. Who am I to complain? A moaning whinger I assume... The odds of winning the lottery aren't even worth a chance... But we'll risk it all, for a opportunity to break out. Is boredom better than being in pain? or would that at least provide some sort of stimulation which is preferable to the absence of any feeling or excitement. Go on without me, I'll only drag you down, to my level, of wonder at what is and what isn't.

Subversive remorse

I'd rather talk about things I have no control over, abstractions so far off their existence is debatable. I have political ideas but they more resemble philosophical discussions, people on the extremes are usually (too) close to the issue, I don't wanna pick an opinion that won't be relevant in a few years, not that I chop and change, but my ideas do, I'm not gonna tell you a fool proof way to save the world, but I'll tell you my opinion today, but try to remember this is not a person it's an idea, my other ego is my id, do I want your approval? sometimes...

There's your explanation
I might mirror this all from now on?
Or some sort of compromise
that works...

Advertising my existence through words and pictures (mirror version/double up)

Seduce and destroy

mostly ripped-off...
overheard travelling by bus.
Nothing in moderation.
This world ain't just...
I noticed and pointed out.
Is it wrong to want reward.
get the best deal for yourself.
want more than is given to you.
carry something in your head.
magnify the way I feel about myself.
due to lack of interest tomorrow is cancelled.
accepting only perfection impedes progress.
being nice because you want something.
love we have is love for ourselves.
all our hopes and expectations.
we bury our secrets in the garden.
there's a right way and a wrong way.
seconds last for days.

Athens of Otago

I had to go to Oamaru the other day...
It's not necessarily somewhere you by choice.
I learnt a few things on my journey...
I had previously thought that Omma's was basically your last chance to get fast food on a car journey to Dunedin. The reason I had to go down there was a prolouge to an earlier story. I was to be a witness in a Coroner's inquest. Which is not really too difficult itself, I just stood in the witness box while the cop read my statement, then ask if I agreed. A pretty small thing to do seeing had to travel 8 hours on a bus to get there and back. Seeing I was there for a good few hours I went and had a look at the historic precient and found out about it's history. It is actually pretty cool, if your into Victorian buildings made of White stone. In fact if you get turned on by New Zealand pioneer heritage preservation, its a bit of a wetdream. But although it has a almost fully preserved area filled with Victorian buildings, I wouldn't have wanted to be there too much longer. But I might stop a little longer next time I drive to Dunedin.


Population: 15,000 (approx.)
Nickname: The Whitestone town

By the way it was her fault.

Victorian splendour of an untouched nature

I'm happy right now, I hope you are. The purpose of this exercise is not to depression the sh(*)t out of you, but I guess in some ways, the material I display can occasionally be melancholy, dark, cynical, paranoid, contemptuous and dark but you can't blame me. Maybe you were depressed before you started reading all this and now you just want someone to blame! I'm just telling it how it is (to me). I am me. As is where is. Harsh is real and all that palava.

I like jokes....

I think even I'm starting to have trouble telling the difference between sarcasm and seriousness.

Sometimes my dreams are friggin' awesome, sometimes they are absolute shight.
Usually they are somewhere in between...

They can be and are...
