The Lie Of The #Eurowasteland Mind

When I moved to the Germania tribe of the EU in 1989, just before the Berlin Wall fell, money was all-kinda confused and at border crossings, especially to Holland, guards still checked my baggage for drugs. Was I relieved when the money got simple and I didn’t have to worry about them finding a few […]

One Step Forward, (Insert # Here) Steps Backward

I remember being debriefed by a senior agency partner in 1998. I had just returned from an interview assignment in Latvia. An “interview” is where a low-level nube gets to go out into the field and collect as much information as possible regarding assignment subject matter. In this case, the subject matter was trying to figure […]

Censorship Nation #WhinyLittleBitch

The Dips That Make It So, Podcast Hell, The Smell Of Skunk Road Kill

Recently subscribed to recode-decode podcast. Have to admit, of all the podcasts out there, many of which I try regularly in search of things-of-interest, there are only about a dozen or so that I remain subscribed to. Shame, eh.

The reason I hate searching for business news is because almost all of the links I get are from propaganda news sites. Most people call this kind of news “the media”. Lucky […]

Dizzying Constitutional Reminds Of Sailing Days

(Un)Fortunately I’m no photographer. But I could attach a toilet bowel better than the guy that built this one. Sorry for the bad pic. Can you make out the lean? I couldn’t figure out how to take this pic (for posterity’s sake) of our forth floor bathroom and the lopsided bowel that someone, somehow, permanently installed. Do you […]

Waking Up With Chinaski, Wanda And The Lie Of Persuasion

Read any Bukowski lately? Me either. Yet I woke up this morn with two things in my head. The movie Barfly and the art of persuasion. A strange mix indeed. Let’s begin with Henry Chanski and Wanda Wilcox waxing misanthropy. Wanda: I can’t stand people, I hate them. Henry: Oh yeah? Wanda: Do you hate them? Henry: No, […]

Words Of Wisdom For Consume-To-Survivors (Un)knowing Of Their Caste

Caste – noun – prohibitions prevent people from marrying outside their caste: class, social class, order, social order, social division, grade, grading, group, grouping, station, stratum, echelon, rank, level, degree, set; place, standing, position, status; Hinduism varna; archaic estate, sphere.

Now it’s my turn. It’s not so bad […]
