A Reminder from the Past

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

on comedy central’s daily show last night they featured a book, it’s title is The American Way of War: Guided Missiles, Misguided Men, and a Republic in Peril, by Eugene Jarecki.  It reminded me of this quote from Dwight D Eisenhower: Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the [...]

One in 179,697,356

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

I have been a drone lately, content to just show up at work Monday through Friday and rest on Saturday and Sunday. I read the news everyday, still frustrated that the world seems in so much chaos. I see dramatic signs of entropy answered with nothing more than the whimper of a comfortable apathy. I [...]

On Barry Bonds and Success at any Cost

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

well, barry bonds has done it. he has destroyed any semblance of respect he may have ever had and taken major league baseball down with him. Congratulations Barry, you are the latest jerk on the planet to prove that “how you play the game” is not what really matters. How else does one explain that [...]

The Difficulty of Formless Faith

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

as an attempted Buddhist i am always defending to the uninitiated about the faith that is central to the practice. most people fail to see the faith of the philosophy because it is not embodied by a personification of ultimate purpose. and so i must explain that its faith is found in rationality and understanding, [...]

A message on hope

Monday, July 9th, 2007

Within the first dozen or so pages of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel, the narrator states, “This was freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.” I have repeated this phrase to many of my friends, acquaintances, people that just happened to show up at my house for whatever reason. I thought it was clever, because I was always [...]

Short note

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

let’s get personal (a.k.a. let me just have one more fix)

Monday, September 18th, 2006

{listening to TOOL in the background} i hope this makes sense. i was talking to an inteliigent friend of mine the other night/ morning and the topic of conversation was essentially about how we would feel when we found ourselves at our deathbed. both of us basically expressed the same sentiment, neither of us wanted [...]

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

I am going to the bar. My phone has been dropping calls. Come join me if you wish.

too smart for own good

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

collection of random thoughts over the past few days: so i have finally found myself enmeshed in a group of people who are not constantly looking at me and saying (with obvious disdain), “why do you use such big words?” It really is a liberating feeling not to feel like such a fucking outcast because [...]

Beauty and Ambiguity

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

i began this post in my head early today with a line like: i am plagued by ambiguity, or rather the stifling significance of the term lately. One of the definitions given at Webster’s Online is: capable of being understood in two or more possible senses or ways. i guess that i am just having [...]
