beginnings, endings and lessons

Monday, July 31st, 2006

When I write often begin with how the item first came up, even tho’ that first time may not have been the actual moment that some importance dawned on me. So this is what I wrote early this morning while with some friends: We had sat down the other day and had read some Buddhist [...]

Monday, July 31st, 2006

alright i have been ignoring this Lebanon-Israel thing long enough. here is what i have to say. this is of course spurred on by partial conversations i have been overhearing from people who have intimate knowledge of the dirty ass situation that is going on over there. question #1: why is this happening? answer: easy.

the anti-joys of owning a home

Sunday, July 30th, 2006

sure it is the “american dream” to own one’s own home, but what they do not tell you is all the bullshit that comes along with that dream. this all occurred to me very clearly today as my neighbor’s woke me up with blasting reggaeton music from their backyard. of course this is not the [...]

a tribute to HS Thompson

Friday, July 28th, 2006

the following piece was created on a micro cassette recorder a short time after the 2nd Bush inauguration. i think i just wanted to see if i could echo the kind of voice Thompson uses in his works. a lady friend and i stumbled upon it the other day after getting home at 7am. she [...]

a conversation i hear frequently

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

I say something like, “I don’t consume refined sugar/multivitamins/lard,” or something similar. Some smart ass inevitably comments, “WHAT? You smoke, drink and generally party like a fucking rock star, but you don’t eat refined sugar/multivitamins/lard?” Followed by either: “Are you fucking crazy?” or “That doesn’t make any damn sense.” or “You are fucking crazy dude.” [...]

Clerks II experience

Monday, July 24th, 2006

Oh yeah, had to let everyone know that me and the crew went to see Clerks II on opening night. After some of us had 3 shots of tequila before going into the theater, we (especially me) were loud as hell, laughing through the whole damn thing. It was a fantastic night, meeting up with [...]

Individual peace and purpose while watching the sun rise

Monday, July 24th, 2006

Since my laptop died I have been writing this stuff by hand late at night or early morning which ever the case may be. This is copied word for scribbled word: A friend said to me this morning, as the sun rose, that right now she was feeling comfortable and peaceful with herself. A feeling [...]

Internal dialogue at 8 AM…

Monday, July 24th, 2006

While staring at the white ceiling in my room two days ago, too tired to sleep: I have not been reading anything intellectual lately. I have been talking alot of politics with people tho’. But the talk is just politics, nothing particularly intellectual or enlightening. I have noted previously that these conversations make no real [...]

bad habits and beautiful people

Friday, July 14th, 2006

The Gitmo flip-flop

Tuesday, July 11th, 2006

so, after years of telling the world and the american public that captured terrorists are not entitled to Geneva protections and dismissing the Conventions as “quaint“, the Bush administration has been dealt a blow to its own arrogance and decided to backtrack. of course, in true Orwellian Big Brother style, the administration will now begin [...]
