Baby Carrots

been listening to the most recent album from Editors
called "The Weight of Your Love" (sounds cheesy but it's not)
and like the following quotey snippets 
(as well as many other aspects of the album)...

I'm a lump of meat
with a heart beat...

The radio said we're in for a fall
the TV said nothing at all...

I don't trust the government
I don't trust myself...

The tissue and bone
my soul has on loan...

Nomadic Tube

I learn random new things everyday... but unfortunately forget some of the old lessons I learned (or learnt? fuct if I know the correct usage in that exact context).

Random out of context quotes, that could be sarcastic but they aren't really meant to be:

All men must die (well women do too, as well as all other living things, all things must/shall pass, etc...)

Be the change you seek (don't tell us about it, if you ain't doing it yo'self bro and broettes)

Justice delayed is justice denied (if you have to wait half a lifetime to get what you deserved, then the moment has already passed, but we humans do love to overcompensate and eventually witch-hunt but only many years after we have let something go on horribly without protesting in the slightest. Go us!)

Murphys law #1225: The rubbish/trash/garbage/refuse/waste (collection) truck, will only come early on the days you forget to put it out the night before...

The best hobbies are the ones that take us away from our primary occupation (we are all keen to do the opposite of what we usually do, give other stuff a bit of a try.)

Almost finished number 3 part 2, but I won't spoil it for you.

Hyper Corporate Neo-nonchalance

Dropping truth bombs to the choir...

Fiscal Environment
Report Realisation
Transitional Arrangement
Change Mandate
Collaborative Alignment
Collective Impact
Expectation Management
Structural Reposition
Strategic Disestablishment

Innate Sense of Justice

Why did almost everyone wear a hat at the start of the twentieth century?

If you don't like posts that are just a list of links to wikipedia and other informational type material, then this obviously wasn't a post for you. But that's fine, I don't do this every time, so feel free to not click on the above or whatever it is you were thinking of doing next anyway, as you are really what matters in your world.. (don't try to deny it!)

Digital Penetration

When did the book of face go from being:

the place you shared your pics while you're on an overseas holiday (circa. 2007 or wheneves)...
to the place where your parents hang out and play crappy games...
we're we the last/only generation to do anything special?

or will we be unlucky enough to get a great war and a great depression all mixed together?

Nah I'm totally joking, there's always some crazy shit going down somewhere
but our history books tend to focus on what we want to hear...

half truths become accepted wisdom, e.g. that America won WW2 for everybody
but I think the Russians should get more credit for doing that, if you check the body counts...

but just because I've said that doesn't mean I'm any sort of apologist for Russian politics
e.g. their laws and stance on non-heterosexuality or the way they have 30 Greenpeace dudes jailed...

or all the terrible shit that went down under Stalin and all the other power hungry mofos
that made communism so bad, that it 's no longer presented as a valid option in the Anglophile world

The subtle implication in the media and society is that if you consider socialism an option you're lazy
and your gonna waste all of the hard working peoples money on your frivolous needs...

In the Philippines (I almost accidentally wrote Philadelphia, Freudian slip?) right now post disaster
we've seen it on the news, we want to give them stuff, but nothing is getting there fast enough...

food warehouses and other caches of things edible are guarded against looters/the starving
why can't they just have that stuff now? the donations that come in will be worth far more

what we want to give them won't get there for a long time, they should just have what's there now
the owners mustn't think they will et paid or money is more important than people?

the GFC was caused by the bigwigs, but was really only really experienced by the working-class and poor
oh well, that seems fair enough when you consider the quality of mainstream entertainment (<--sarcasm p="">
end of ramble
