It's been a while... [Jul. 13th, 2010|01:51 am]

How do ya do?

As it so happens, I'm currently in Tacoma Washington, and while I usually like to steer well clear of those ocassional nexuses of all that is unholy, I'll be working on a crew this coming morning, setting up and tearing down ( of all horrors ) a Justin Bieber concert.
All the same, I'm blessed and bobbing about as such.

FLOWING WELLS [Oct. 23rd, 2009|03:59 am]

Once again, the Yahoo welcome page's top ten most popular search engine results gives me the giggles...expecting a person of any sense to imagine that there are droves of people searching for "fall foliage" of all things. Just what peculiar domestic scenes are to be guessed at when trying to fathom scores of people searching for "fall foliage"? I imagine that people all over America wake up to discover that the leaves have begun turning color, and they all gasp aloud, "dear god, what's happening?!" Then again, the implications that the people at Yahoo would wish to direct anyone to make their own independent searches for "fall foliage" is just plain weird.:)

Henry Darger.... [Oct. 17th, 2009|03:55 pm]
I need to thank Tim Hall for reminding me that I still had yet to watch this wonderful documentary regarding Henry Darger. Thanks!:)

Henry Joseph Darger (April 12[?], 1892April 13, 1973) was a reclusive American writer and artist who worked as a janitor in Chicago, Illinois.[1] He has become famous for his posthumously discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, along with several hundred drawings and watercolor paintings illustrating the story.[2] Darger's work has become one of the most celebrated examples of outsider art.

The playlist for all 12 chapters of this documentary can be enjoyed here, though if you've the means I'd suggest finding the real thing at your library or borrow a copy from your most reliable recluse artist friend:)

I thought you might dig another sneak-preview of a page in progress.
I've every intention of returning some Friday soon with the beginning of a new chapter of FLOWING WELLS
I really want to make it worth the time away I've taken recently and bomb you with a strong batch of pages.

The Basement... [Oct. 13th, 2009|11:37 pm]
I've no clue who these women are...heh

...the basement though was my home for a couple of months just before bouncing clear of Madison WI.
I hadn't mentioned it before, but it was quite a basement, and I shared it with two separate indoor gardens which were maintained by a curious and pleasant mad scientist who had constructed these "gardens" to more or less run themselves on the whims of state of the art gizmos and electronic doo-dads. My only complaint was the constant flooding that kept the carpet and everything I owned in a perpetual state of funk, which was where I laid me down to rest most nights.
I have to say though, that the fruits of those gardens would have earned the seal of approval of Terence McKeena :) So, yeah, I do miss being on such a healthy diet.

Questions for the US... [Oct. 12th, 2009|11:19 pm]
This a follow-up to my last post concerning Gordon Brown's leading green adviser Jonathan Porritt and his suggestion that the UK should cut it's population in half from 60 million people to 30.

I'm a wee late-comer to all of this stuff, having pretended as though I could take a break from it after last November more or less, so playing catch-up has been a real eye-opener.

Anyhoo..with regards to eugenic-centric-witchdoctors who happen to be chosen to offer advice to political leaders, it's only fair now to point to Obama's "Science Czar, John Holdren...because it appears to me as if perhaps Obama's only other choices for the job were Invader Zim and Doctor Claw!

This Malthusian ghoul co-authored a book that was published in 1977 titled Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, wherein the authors make a case for such abysmally grim suggestions as forced sterilization by adding infertility drugs to water and food supplies...Legalizing "compulsory abortions...Permanently sterilizing people who authorities deem have contributed to "general social deterioration"...suggests that babies born out of wedlock or to teenage mothers should be forcibly taken and put up for adoption...suggesting that all of this ( and more ) be overseen by a transnational and centralized "planetary regime"...

Now, I'm not saying that I believe that life is bound to go down in the manner as outlined by Holdren's book. But hell, I look at such statistics as one from as early as a 2003 study, finding that in the United States alone, over 750,000 people were actually dropping off each year from prescription medicine; the majority of which were simply working-aged people with prescriptions...and that when measured by return on equity & return on investment, the Pharmaceutical industry is the most profitable industry in the world...and I've watched how in the last twenty years all of these emergent illness have become "mainstreamed"....
Americans make up a smidgen 5% of the planet and yet account for roughly 80% of prescription drug consumption...also accounting for over 25% of the planet's prison population..christ!
Well, to my mind, eugenics is hardly a new ball game.

My aunt Ruth was among those unfortunate women sterilized in the 1920s when it was argued that the population of the United States was being "corrupted" by the birth of too many individuals of "inferior genetic quality". And my Aunt Ruth was not mentally handicapped or otherwise in any way. Sadly, it just so happened that my aunt lived in Indiana where this bullshit first became legal, headed by a board chillingly called the "Indiana State Mental Hygiene Association"...for whatever reasons these bastards had, the women chosen in Indiana weren't the primary targeted victims, but rather chosen on the basis of simply being poor and living outside the urban development.

Looking around, I imagine that I see eugenics being played out in layers and layers...and it's still a weapon of class war.

Who needs a drink?
