i smoked some of that dank mystic shit and I got thoughts

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

LIstening to great music while sitting down and drinkning cheap beer is the best part of life. I used to do this all the time but I hadn't done this in weeks and now I'm remembering why it's so great. Broken Social Scene is such a great band. I was going to say that in a perfect world they would have taken Arcade Fire's place as the super commercially successful indie band, but that's not true. It seems selfish, but it's better this way, trust me. Question: is Broken Social Scene to Toronto as Wilco is to Chicago? Because that would be a sick set-up for Toronto. BSS is sick as fuck and that would be a sweet "big home-town indie band" to have.

Sobieski I appreciate the video and found it interesting. The huge super colony is amazing.

I've been playing legend of zelda: breath of the wild. Like every zelda game, the whole in-game universe is filled to the brim with stupid, monomaniacal NPC's. People who just go and do their one thing all day. People who just want one insanely stupid thing in life. "I just want to see a palm fruit. If you can bring me a palm fruit, I will give you 100 rupees and be insanely happy." Shit like that. And then I realized: that's us. We are all just like them. We all just do our one little thing, go to the same job day in and day out for our whole life. It's insane. We are all faceless NPC's comprising an absurd world where nothing matters. Well, maybe things do matter. No they don't. Let's put it this way. Sometimes I care about things; other times I don't. Whether or not I care has no bearing on whether those things matter in a "greater" sense. But you all knew that already. The point is this: I have always seen people in the Zelda universe as incredibly shallow and stupid, but only now do I realize that caring about just one thing, no matter how tiny or asinine, is infinitely deeper than not wanting anything in particular out of life. Or even if I do want something out of life, not finding the strength to go after it. All the introspection in the world couldn't compare to the power of having a dream or a desire. I would give anything to say be able to sincerely tell someone "Hey, if you can show me a picture of a yam, that would make my whole world brighter."

Only on certain days do I feel able to pass judgement on ant society in the like momentary conjunction of a feeling and a thought

I feel like spending a few days of life on studying ant colonies would be a worthwhile thing to do, and the whole world by ecology I'd measure


There's a fun article somewhere online, I can't find it, that retells the history of a ant colony and how it battled with its neighbours all from the perspective of the colony or like... a war reporter. Its a fun read- wish I could find it

For all its ills, I like that the music uploads on Youtube are typically accompanied by their album art. When the sidebar recommendations are doing their thing they are full of album art, and when you choose a track there is the album art big and front and center

i'm doing the morning version of this and it makes me so grateful that I live alone and get up in silence and sip my coffee, play some jams, and be a mute for the first hour of my day.

I don't have a thing. That's the problem. Yours is good though. Wanting your son to go to sleep is small and simple, but also definitely relatable and important enough to be worthy of being the "one thing".

yeah living alone rules. Love having a place where I feel safe enough to do things like this. Listening in the morning is a different experience from listening at night. It gives a more optimistic feeling. I listened to Otis Redding on the good speakers this morning.

nobody is better than Koo Nimo. His music is basically perfect and he even made a song about ants!

have a decision to make so I thought I'd mull it over with a bowl of the icky sticky green god-plant. Is it better to take a job with more money, or a job where the work is more interesting and the people are cooler? I'm leaning toward the latter.
