Thanks for this one Ira...

stop, look, listen.

Kurt Vonnegut on Bill Maher

It's a trajedy for me that he's president of my country. You know, my book is called A Man Without a Country,I still have a passport, but if I showed this now in Portugal or Spain or Italy or Germany of France or Denmark or Japan or even communist China, what it would say about me is that I'm not only from the richest country in the world but the dumbest country in the world. Is our President a tragic figure, perhaps, but he doesn't know diddley squat about economics or history or science even how to speak well.

thanks kurt

Sunday, September 11, 2005's a second attempt. the only thing I don't like about computers is there ability to suddenly do something for no reason. and it usually manages to do this while you're in the midst of something creative, or maybe even profound. but i found a fail safe...notepad. there's nothing like cut and paste, it keeps these posts from just suddenly disappearing into thin air. that sucks.
but what I was saying before was that I just spent the whole weekend (second one in a row in fact) in the mountains which is a great idea if you get the chance. especially when you get to do it with friends, close friends. Its a pretty amazing feeling to be on top of a mountain at a resort, outside in the crystal clear air, in a hot tub with the people that you care about most. it's hard not to let those moments slip past, and its hard not to get caught up in all the of the horrible things that take place in this world at the very moment that you are enjoying to such an extent. it's a bit overwhelming, but at the same time you have to wonder that it's not in fact the moment that is so special, but the ability to realize that you are in fact in the moment just then.
So, it's once again back to the grindstone for another working week, which I hope to have evaporate here in the near future. The notion of working for five days, then getting a break is a good one, it allows for the great weekend getaway. but I may strive to stray from the notion, it's too rigid, to have the freedom of never having to know what day it is...that would be truly great.

been a bit shy on the posts, but peep the side bar...that's where all the action is. Lots to report, but little time, maybe later. Labor day kicks ASS by the way. There's nothing like 24 hours in the mountains...actually i guess it was a bit mor like 36, but who's really counting. September is the best month ever! me and my girly gots birthday's this month, and there's a mega Halloween Cocktail Costume Party in the works. So, chew on that for a bit.

night cap

a long week followed by a long, busy "day off". but running around all day gives you perspective and brings you closer to your convictions...i guess. depends on how deep you wanna get with shit, you know? seems like it's always like that though, how depressed do you want to get? Life is suffering no matter how you slice it.

has anyone else noticed that there's a lot a really crazy shit going on in the world right now. i'm trying hard to fight off my "end of the world" thoughts. but there seems to be some serious aquatic issues lately. and i'm not trying to make light, either. it just feels like we may be on the brink of something really really big, you know? there's other things going on around thirty eigth street these days, too. not to mention i'm off on a friday, which is nice. I guess you could just say its business as usual. Just trying to keep my roll rollin'.

Also, I am really distractable.

by the way there is something wacky going on with my computer. so this the third attempt at a second paragraph. is it me? was it something I said? maybe it's just this fresh new laptop i just got. yeah...not really sure how that happened. it's a little bit like acquiring a new bicycle. which may happen one of these days as well.

yep...something strange is certainly happening here. with the computer its technical. with the rising water, that's environmental. and speaking of environment, its time to head to the mountains! twentyFour hours at 7Springs...can you dig it?
i'm looking forward to seeing some people I haven't seen or hung out with for a while. Plenty of good food and beer to be had, and a whole lot of bike riding, that'll be the next twentyFour for me. So, needless to say, i'm killing some time when there's plenty to do. Gots ta run..
