Capture the Flag

...greater good my ass!
we all in it for the fame, wealth, status, kudos...
you got it the money...
self-aggrandizement, the usual.

we're all against each other...
divisions, tribalism, factions, the elite
isolated pockets of snobbery
out of touch with the real world...
common folk and their revolting decay.

unable to access even modest...
ostentatious displays of wealth
or way to tell everyone to get fucked.

we have it, you don't
we spent it, give us more
too bad, it's gone

the rich don't wanna share
the poor take til it hurts

sweat it out
take a concrete pill and harden up

workers of the world invite...
credit cards, banks, markets, government and the rest
to rule over us stylishly

with awesome news channels
with the best celebrity updates
that's current affairs baby!

analysis of fashion trends
the nitty-gritty questions
and other ways we can spend more

fuck the less well off, they deserve it
orphans, how did u lose both parents...
bit suspicious isn't it? or just careless

sick, tired and/or elderly...
we have pills to sort that out

the huddled masses
watching through the windows...
see: game shows, teeth whitener, fake tans

reality is sponsored by breweries
the implied solutions can be bought
big TVs, alcohol and a constant stream...
of 24-hour infotainment devoid of journalism
or facts, charm, integrity, courage

after the break
something to keep you tuned in
sustain your interest through the ads

has to be new and fresh for our cynical souls
irony is invisible to those inside it

here are some new ways to think/control you
but they are very similar to the old ones
so don't get your hopes up

this just in: follow the leaders or pay the price
did you see what she was wearing?
followed by sports and distracting statistics

Attention Economy

Sometimes it feels like the wheels are falling off...

or we are going down in flames...

like we are swimming in a vast ocean and may never get to land...

there is no cure for life...

and no such thing as total control...

just keep swimming no matter how tempting it is to stop...

things don't always seem worthwhile when we do them...

someday we'll look back and smile...

darkness doesn't have be a bad thing...

we all act out of fear...

no comment...

see you there...

Purple Monkey Dishwasher


All can distort our perceptions of reality or ‘now’

Create your own meaning(s)...

Justice For All*

(*conditions apply)

Professor Professorson

Creativity and Authenticity…

Are these things to strive for?

Well I would say yes, but modern society/culture doesn’t seem quite so sure…

The other challenge is to do so without being…

Pretentious and self-indulgent

a challenge for some

What does it mean to exist right now?

Positive thoughts/thinking

Looking at the bright side

A grateful perspective

Remembering it could have been worse


If you believe it, you can make it so

We create our own reality daily

From the unconscious to the conscious

Positivity attracts positivity
Negativity attracts negativity
and vice versa

Message I got from a fortune cookie today:
"Win with humility; lose with grace"
simple but affective and easy to forget...

Spiritual Transformation

Transcendental Mediation
Transcontinental Meditation
Post-modern Speculation
has nothing to do with this...



It’s all about perspective eh!!

There’s only one person that can decide how you feel and that’s you!

So I have decided to feel good and be positive about all the opportunities I will get

If I feel sad about it, then it just isn’t gonna help anyone, especially me!


Yeah well I am not saying it’s easy…

But some days you just feel ‘good’ for no real reason

But of course other days you feel bad for no reason aswell

Other times there are plenty of reasons…

But underneath it all the choice of how you process/deal with it

Is a choice that we have… we choose our perspective and so that dictates our moods…

But I guess I don’t get periods though,…

so I can’t judge how I would ‘handle’ the feelings that they create…


(she agreed:)

Think it’s a matter of constantly reminding self of the fact that there is a choice on how you deal with how you feel…

Haha, yeah well, I guess it’s one of those things, it’s almost like women are given an ‘excuse’ not to deal with how they feel at that time… cos dealing can be hard! Heh J

We are just on a constant path of self-improvement / awareness etc!


Yes that is a good summary of it really!!

We get so distracted with detail and trivialities, that we forgot to choose how we feel

An let ourselves fall into old habits of negativity and pessimism unnecessarily

so there

Ribs and Rumps

We all see what we want to see...

What is the point?
Is there a point?
Does there need to be one?
Who has the point?
When did the point?
Why do I do this?
How do you do this?

Am I ever serious?
Am I ever not?


I guess I need to pick my battles...
but it's always so tough at the time
and easy in hindsight
darn you over-thought police!

I pulled everything apart
it's ok
I usually put most of it back together

The Ravenous Hordes

We are all deluded, that's normal

Memories change the more we remember them.

We will try to find meaning from all things, even if it's not there.

The more you play, the more you learn.

We make rapid decisions based on limited information, everyday.

I may not appear in my own profile pic, but I'm in the background on other peoples...

Friendly Fire

Sometimes to create things you have to make a bit of a mess.
Or have a few attempted versions before a success.
I guess life is a bit like that when you're trying to improve.
Sorry if you were around when I was making a mess
but I feel like I'm getting it sorted far better now.

I wish I could stop my brain thinking sometimes though.
But I guess it's better than not being able to do so...

This isn't always going to entertain or stimulate you
as it's a just a way for me to remember my weirdness

I'll still give it a go though
I just document the non-existent

So you're welcome to come along for the ride :)

NB: Oh crap my photo uploads have gone weird again
trying to get that sorted...

Joint At The Hip

oh ironic
drugs increasingly coming in
to high demand luractive markets
because laws focus on symptoms
of addiction and abuse
never the causes of dependence

high prices just compound issues
and reward the people you're trying to stop
laws making them illegal
only increase the street value
shouldn't we let market forces decide
and not interfere in the market
by placing restrictions (e.g. bans)
on products

but ohhh i forgot you can only
use market forces as a justification
of proverty, starvation and price-gouging
not for aguing that although
drugs cause many problems
making them totally illegal and unregulated
is obviously not helping
I would like to see studies that
compare periods of prohibition
to other times when items are legal
just to see if people actually
use contraband more
when it is deemed
outside the law

ban sale and importation of certain narcotics
but sell liquor at the local shop
and target the youth demographic
dope the masses, only with taxable evils
the gangs will sort the rest

if the demand still exists and not confronted
then what use trying to restrict supply?

sorry we can only use that argument in regards to fossil fuels...

The House of Next Tuesday

The anti-socialist, the anti-hero,
Inconsisted dedication, variable motivation,
unclear aims, distant goals,
lack of ambition,

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention...


Robot Fighters Only
Technology Loop

Was it a weakness that made you strong?
Each armpit has a different smell…
I have pressed [Esc]ape, but it doesn’t seem to be working….

Famous For Being Famous

Every now and then I do this:
Time for some more quotes, repetition cut and paste, etc.

But if some one else already said it better then why not copy them?

They are quite interesting some of them, hopefully all of them...
Warning: Maybe slightly controversial too, for the rigid of thought.

  • "The Old World buckles under its weight of statues: callous bishops, oily statesmen, lucky generals, all now attended only by pigeons." - Joe Bennett
  • "We're all in this alone." - Lily Tomlin.
  • "God did not create man in his own image. Evidently, it was quite the other way about, which is the painless explanation for the profusion of gods and religions, and the fratricide both between and among faiths, that we see all about us and that has so retarded the development of civilisation." - Christopher Hitchens.
  • "We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves in order to be like other people." -Arthur Schopenhauer.
  • "We differ from dogs partly because of our vanity; we assume that what happens to us matters. And partly because of our emotions: we are the only beasts that laugh or cry. And partly because we have a sense of time. Like all creatures, we can live only in the here and now, but unlike them we hold on tight to the past." -Joe Bennett
  • "A blog is not writing. It's graffiti with punctuation." -Unconfirmed source.
  • "In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." -Douglas Adams.
  • "You can pretend to be serious; you can't pretend to be witty." -Sacha Guitry.
  • "To be able to fill in leisure intelligently is the last product of civilisation." -Bertrand Russell
  • Never offend people with style when you can offend them with substance." -Sam Brown.
  • "When we are unable to find tranquillity in ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere" -Francois de La Rochefoucauld.
  • "Say howdy to George Carter, and thank him for taking the pistol from you when you were shooting at me." -Jourdon Anderson
  • If there is anything the non-conformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another non-conformist, who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity." -Bill Vaughan.
  • "Art is science made clear." -Jean Cocteau.
  • "The world abounds in ruined places of worship. Consider the great slabs of Stonehenge, the jungle-shrouded temples of the Incas, the towering columns of the Parthenon. All were built to gods we've no longer got, gods created by people to explain the mysteries of the world. Gods begin, in other words as bad science. In time they are institutionalised and are used as tools of government." - Joe Bennett.
