The Lazy Way to Success

The Lazy Way to Success

After Ron's (Real Art) post on work a day or two ago I thought I might just point y'all over to The Lazy Way to Success...
Haven't been reading it regularly enough to judge it's brilliance,
but I'm willing to listen to anyone who tells me, "work sucks!" for at least long enough to figure out where they're coming from...


Eschaton: "This is the have your cake and eat it and everyone else's too and then some free pie and here's a pony! plan."

The only thing surprising about this plan is that more politicians aren't trying to promote other plans like it.
They think we're morons.
They really do.

Lots of good stuff from Momus today...
including this:
Click opera - March 18th, 2005: "Staying with weird science, British newspaper The Guardian reports that yawning and sex are linked; yawning is, apparently, a sort of 'mini-orgasm'. 'In discussing pharmacology I found a link between yawning and spontaneous orgasm in withdrawal from heroin addiction. Likewise, yawning and sexual response were associated as clinical side effects of several antidepressant drugs. In one publication an undeniable causal relation was reported: both spontaneous and intentional yawning provoked instantaneous ejaculation orgasm.'"

News to me...

Usually I know how these things are going to turn out...

You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don't actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.

This is pretty brilliant...
and exactly the way to teach this concept...
sit two kids down and tell them they are playing a game together and then discuss their experiences with them...
It's always amazing when you discover that the whole time you thought you and someone else where moving towards the same goals that you were perceiving not just the goal differently, but the method of getting there differently as well...

"Jealousy involves three parties, the subject, the rival, and the beloved; and the jealous person's real locus of concern is the beloved—the person whose affection he is losing or fears losing—not his rival. Whereas envy is a two party relation, with a third relatum that is a good (albeit a good that could be a particular person's affections); and the envious person's locus of concern is the rival. "

Nice philosophical discussion of envy...
how it differs from jealousy,
whether it is the genesis of egalitarian justice, etc...

"What kind of pussy Little Lord Fontleroy had I become? Fifty years of Peanuts comic strips used them exclusively, and somehow I managed to read what Linus had to say without breaking down in tears. But now a fucking gas pump has the temerity to talk sternly to me and I feel all shaky and hurt?"

I've never gotten the all caps as shouting thing...

"Detainee #0027: DR. PEPPER. Nothin' feels better in the middle of a long hard day of torture than a tall frosty glass of Dr. Pepper. The only thing this prisoner is aiding and abetting is refreshment!"

So, I'm watching this season of "24" and there's torture every episode.
In the last ep the torture started before the credits were even over.
This time the bad guys were torturing a good guy that the good guys had tortured last week cause they thought he might be a bad guy.
However, even in the fictional "24" universe torture hasn't actually worked even once.
So, what are the writers trying to do?
They had the Secretary of State give a pro-torture speech,
but they aren't showing torture as being effective.

REAL ART (and politics and culture):
"Really, boomers would do well to take their work less seriously. I mean, otherwise you're just a wage slave, unless you're doing something you really love, and, of course, only a few people are so lucky. What it comes down to is asking who you're living your life for. Yourself, family, and friends? Or some corporate board that sees you as just a cog in a vast machine to be used or discarded as it deems necessary? Screw that. I'm working for me."

Ron again...
good stuff...
and a chance for me to say:

Workers of the World,

Columbo = Class Warfare


2. Every episode is glorious, if very thinly veiled, class warfare. Like “Die Hard,” but without the machine guns and broken glass. Some rich bastard will engineer an elaborate and ingenious murder. Swarthy little working-class Columbo – driving his beat-to-shit foreign convertible and pulling down an LAPD salary of $11,000 a year – will then wander onto the scene and proceed to slowly and methodically destroy some amoral, snobby, arrogant, self-serving, stick-up-the-ass bastard’s life.

Not sure I've ever really noticed the class war angle,
but it does help explain my enduring love for Columbo.

Tuesday Eno Blogging

Phonograph Record: Eno Music: The Roxy Rebellion:
"Stuck in the middle like the time he was chatting with some friends on the staircase outside Elton John's Christmas party: 'I saw Eno standing there (points down) and Bryan Ferry standing there (up). Eno was going to go in, and Bryan was going to go out, but they were sort of like you know (fists together, head on face off). I suddenly saw Eno, I suddenly saw Bryan, and I just went screaming up the stairs going 'hello, hello, hello, hello!' and rushed into the party. They would not pass. It was amazing! Hopefully, both of them will do what they want to do and get to a point where they can pass each other on the stairs.'

Without question, a prime feud. A bit of perspective, please: 'Obviously, these things happen. It's nothing rare. It happens in every band. The only reason it affects me is that I have to be sitting down there making a record, and these kind of things put so much pressure on you. Because you want to sit down and make the record. You don't want to read the paper, you can't even decide if you want to drink coffee or tea when it gets down to that point. You don't want to know any of the things that are going on. Andy was so upset when we did Stranded, about Eno leaving, that there was a tension there between Andy and Bryan. Andy was telling me this and Bryan was telling me that and I was always in the middle. But they're alright now. I think they are alright now. I hope they are alright now.'"

"Parappa the Rapper was a big influence on my 1998 album The Little Red Songbook, which embraced monophonic analogue synthesizers in exactly the same way, and for exactly the same reasons, that Parappa embraced flat characters. Moogs had flavour which their digital descendents, attempting to be all things to all musicians, had lost. Moogs had a stronger synth identity. Moogs, once considered cold, were by the late 90s cute and retro and warm, evoking nostalgia rather than future shock. A Moog could help you travel, associatively, through time. To use a Moog in 1998 was interestingly referential, self-conscious, and post-modern. I'm getting nostalgic for the nostalgia just talking about it!"

nothing much to say about this...

monday night

at home...
finished the whiskey
listening to lcd soundsystem and
not dancing

avoiding doing any of the
productive things on my list

not that I have a list

I read more of "Notes from the Underground" and while I think it completely underlines my point about the farce that is the "science" of economics it also devastates me and makes me crazy.
It's like when I read "The Trial" when I was unemployed and didn't leave the house for a week or so.
There are very few works that really feed my manias and delusions quite so well as those.
I want to say they are like wallowing in the mud,
but I know that's not quite right...
it's just that there's something
about unpleasant truths,
the things I KNOW,
but don't allow myself to dwell on...
to read those kinds of things
articulated so clearly
is really kind of devastating.
I want to say it's inspiring too
and I guess if I want to say it
then it must be so in some way,
but I'm sceptical.
I have been writing again
and working on a few things,
but I'm barely building momentum
and NONE of it is the stuff I'm supposed to be working on
and that makes me wonder,
and you know it's just drunk talk,
but what if the end result of an absurdist world view,
for me, ends with a certain kind of selfishness?

how's that for some serious drunk-blogging?

> the most horrific acts one human can do to another.
> The goal of this operation was to get the location of

> Russbacher called, "a field resolution" on them.
> Russbacher claimed that his team was involved in 400

> throughout the U.S. Members are specially trained

> who involve the kidnapped children in satanic sex

> They use a fleet of unmarked vans to grab targeted

O.k. I admit it,
even I didn't read all this...
but I'm sure it's terrifying
and that more of it is true
than any of us would like to believe...

I've subscribed to various conspiracy theory lists over the years...
and it turns out that an amazing number of things I read about there first
end up in the mainstream media in matter of months..

sure, they're still not reporting on the reptiles,
but just give 'em time...


so, my toast for this weekend was, "Here's to a binge-drinking testosterone fueld bad behavior weekend!"
and well, I can say I got the drinking part down anyway...
I wouldn't say I was on my best behavior, but it was far from my worst,
and I think it was mostly ego-fueled, not testosterone fueled...
I guess I'll just have to try harder next weekend...

Dewey Dell: March Madness

Dewey Dell: March Madness:
"Out of this, I got the MOONLIGHTERS a night at the wonderful Belt Theatre, 366 W. 37th Street between 8th & 9th Avenues. It's a great space, with two levels of seating (I love the balcony), great lighting and sound. We will do 'A Night with the Moonlighters' at 8pm-11pm on Thursday, March 31, and the $10 cover charge includes a free drink. I hope you can all make it out to this performance, I'm really excited to play at this great venue (soon to have food, too)."

So, anyone wanna fly me to NYC to see the moonlighters on my birthday?
Ok, well then just let it be known it's where I'd be if I was there...

the Institute of Unlearning, editorial 53:

"Hidden from us right now are technologies so powerful, effortless, and pollution free that the Earth could find itself hosting billions more life forms happily and easily on this planet.

Hidden from us right now are such startling truths about our history that we would rapidly redefine ourselves and the way we behave towards one other.

Hidden from us is a multiverse that is awaiting the acceptance of its invitation to explore it intimately.

Hidden from us, simply put, is the paradise of our deepest collective longings. "
