Colloquy Among The Fallen

Afloat in a pea-green sea
of garbled rhetoric like, "I'm Sorry,"
the incumbent sails off into political oblivion,
wondering why he is still alive
and not the other guy,
how he got to be a best-selling author
and not the other guy,
and what would the other guy have done
if he'd seen such a good opportunity for a gag?

"Well, he should have been a tad more thoughtful to begin with,
now, shouldn't he?" says the Church Lady.

"Let's not forget about racist antebellum ambition, either,"
says OJ "Grope Juice" Simpson.

Heard the climbers wuz playin' the Indians today, WITHOUT COCHRAN'S BAT!!

edit: Late report on the game...after deciding not to wear headbands to show solidarity with the Indians, who seldom if ever bothered with them, the climbers (away team this year) took the contest in twelve innings.

where the heart was

Nov 19, 2017 - 07:50am PT
i'm a false blond
and far from a superhero

so i am artificially confused
by the association assigned between
me and Charles Manson.

i have never murdered anyone.

usually when i encounter a fellow warm being
i simply suggest via word and action that
they follow their eclectic quest.

and then i lean back and stare really far away
as the drool issues from each side of my mouth;
usually heavier on the left cause i tilt that way.

..dude's shite was way f*#ked. he brought harm.
and i will not shed a tear upon his demise.

he is kin with Donald Trump.

-yea, i'm weege

Your pictures, mfm, that second one now the 1st is something else

Morning Sir ya got to be So

Oh the power of sleep

and its converse

When sleep won't stay


the songs & the show selected on the Dread head thread, picked for this mornings listening pleasure. . . there is also a show 12/3/83. from the University of Vermont. . .






It is a gutting thing

Not RayJ, not jai aLai, JJ

"If you can get them once, man, get them standing up when they should be sitting down, sweaty when they should be decorous, smile when they should be applauding politely-and I think you sort of switch on their brain, man, so that makes them say: 'Wait a minute, maybe I can do anything.' Whoooooo! It's life. That's what rock and roll is for, turn that switch on, and man, it can all be."


"Music's for grooving man, and music's not for puttin' yourself through bad changes, y'know? I mean, you don't have to go take anybody's sh#t, man, just to like music, y'know what I mean? You don't. So... so if you're getting' more sh#t than you deserve, you know what to do about it man. Y'know, it's just music. Music's... music's s'posed to be different than that."


"Dear Lord! Regular bar conversation.
I love bar conversation, man!
There's four people talkin',
nobody listening to anybody else,
someone constantly offending,
another cat constantly interrupting
with a monologue about his car gettin' repossessed or some other matter
of great import -
'So I told that guy...' - and a third person constantly apologizing.
This third cat is saying,
'I'm really sorry about a minute ago that I'....
Talk about cinema verite! Drunks are all alike.
Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch,
and every quarter of an hour they've got their arms around each other
sayin', 'I'm sorry, you're the greatest buddy I ever met.'"

Rumor is that Tom Waits may record this one.

"Oh yeah? I really missed the guy...so like Bukowski, so, so...fragile."

This is more or less the way I understand it.

In an intuitive sense, one can consider a dot product as a measure of how close two vectors are. For example, if we divide the dot product by the magnitude of the vectors, then we are talking about the cosine similarity i.e. how far away two vectors are from each other in pointing in the same direction.

My friend Dave's dog Max got busted just for walking on the beach, WTF?

Has some funky editing, but if you're not a local and you don't surf here ...

Unfortunately Max preceded DC in death and Dave doesn't hang in the same old spots anymore

^^^The Grand Whizzer of Wernerstan.

Wants to know when the new comprehensive guidebook to the Valley is being published. Wants to see his name in print one more time.

This MAY happen in his lifetime, but Licky could 'pubolish' before then on the dope plane, too.
