Chaos Reaction Thoughts

A few of the finite things you have complete control over in life:
How clean your home is
How made your bed is
How tired your dog is
Whether or not your passport is current and active

All of this adds up, really, to the one and only thing you have control over:
How you react to chaos.

The paradox of safe environments is where vulnerability becomes currency.

Violence is a subset of laziness

No place is “public” if you have to log in.
In the end nowhere will be the sole “public” space.

Most days, I see a picture or read the name of one more missing person.

Are there any colonial overtones in the “East versus West” dynamic? Isn’t the whole notion that Russia and China are in “the East” predicated on a European looking at a compass?

I stopped consuming porn because in the end it just saps your battery.

“Hey, Westy, why don’t you write about music for once? Or better yet, just shut up and play.”

We’re getting there, Kid.…

Warring Thoughts

the trick is to get paid for just being you

to “turn a trick” is to be paid to be someone else’s “you”

adopting war terminology for sports (“bomb,” “shotgun,” “blitz,” “strikers,” “defense,” “offence,” “flanks,” “attack,” “sacking,” etc) turned war into sports

Now, those not fighting are said to be “on the sidelines.” As if there are teams. As if there are fans. What of those who want no tickets to begin with? Who would have the world just grill dinner and play tennis?

Nothing comes out of nowhere

But everything came from nothing

I don’t believe anyone I’ve ever spoken with on a helpline or a chat has used their real name

lol if ppl refuse to raise prices, there will be no inflation

history is arbitrary

the sole “historical context” is the present

the cold war weaponised fear and destabilisation
the now war weaponises loneliness and alienation

The downside, and upside, to globalisation is to turn Earth from a planet into an island

LOL the john is actually the whore. The John needs to pay to be themself, even though appearing to pay for escape

kinda how in the end ppl vote for who they’d rather lie to them

Allowing others to lie to us gives us air cover to lie to ourselves

lol in the future you’ll need birthright to bbq

just so strange how there’s still war when the world has the means to feed and house everyone

everywhere lies truth

There’s no such thing as “living a lie.” You live your truth and only your truth, and enjoy or suffer the fallout, whatever your truth creates.

The phrase isn’t, “you’re living your lie.” It’s, “you’re living a lie.”

At the very least, if it was your lie, you’d have some agency

If there are lives “lived in lies,” then life itself is devalued

The “problem” today lol isn’t that everywhere there’s lies. It’s that everywhere lies truth

“The sky is blue,” and “The sky is clear,” are both true

Quality Covid 20220108

“Certificate of Quality”
“Inspected by 01”

I’m an official breakthrough case. No Abott Binax tests anywhere in the neighborhood, but managed to score a few of these at random pharmacies in the blocks around my house. This FlowFlex test has a fortune cookie vibe, but the way I’ve felt in the last few days is no joke. We’ll lay low, and test again in a week to see exactly how “quality” my Covid is.

“Let me in, Luna.”
“No.”
“Why?”
“Take me to @downtowndoghouse to see @baracudajo. Massachusetts has turned my coat into hard scrabble!”
“Kid, that’s where we’re going. Tomorrow you see JoJo.”
“Oh, ok. In that case what are you waiting for? Come in! I’ll ring the Footman.”

“Moose fact socks?” sniffed Luna. “Even for the northern realm of Luna’s Lands, they show no taste.”
“There’s-”
“Dare you argue?”
“Lol.”
“Lol hold tongue or I’ll take it.”
“They’re staying on, Kid. I have never had a bad day in moose fact socks.”
“Plebs all around me. Pfft.”

“Behold Queen Luna’s Lowell castle until July!”
“You 3rd-person now?”
“Topic! Why don’t these horseless carriages slow for we?”
“This is Massachusetts, the OG bird-flipper at monarchy.”
“Well they are my subjects. They will submit!”
“Speak for we-self, Kid.”
“Silence, Jester!”

“Garçon!” Luna clapped. “Garçon!”
“Me?” I asked.
“Do you see any other waiters here?”
“No.”
“Well then. This La Boutanche Gamay is NOT at cellar temperature.”
“May I offer you a free snausage?”
“Sure. But I won’t forget this egregious oenophillic infraction!”
“Right away, Madam.”

stationary chevy update: still stationary // month: 31 // slow air leak edition // sidenote: with alternate side rules suspended during lockdown, many cars on the block haven’t moved in the last 2 months, either, so our purple friend is enjoying quarantine company
