— Two Roads in the Yellow Wood

Two Roads in the Yellow Wood

I took the one I traveled my entire life.  It was informed by my experience, paved it with good intentions, perhaps it veered towards hell but it took a detour toward compassion.  I am of an agitated but sound mind and a reasonably though sometimes wayward body.  I can’t say it has been all of a jaunt on a pretty path.  History repeats and I hate to watch it. I don’t want to say too much because…

— Reclaimed Brain Freight

After reviewing scribbling of mine from the age of over-abundant social exposure I have to ask myself, “Where were my standards?”  That’s some downright shoddy writing.  It seems to me that the year long hiatus from other people’s crap writing has greatly improved my own.  The tolerance I have for the day to day cheapness of it all is nonexistance and I can’t tolerate it in myself.  Taking a…

In the cold age of fear, how I learned to love the Bomb

Ray Kurtzweil

Ray Kurtzweil is a guy I can respect. His vision is second to none.  I cite his “Singularity” theory often and remind myself (and others more unwilling) of the ethical responsibility we all have in the development of scientific knowledge.  It’s a frightening prospect, the oligarchic world we are facing.  It’s a familiar landscape and history is doomed to repeat itself, or so the…

— Anti-Antiphon

Yet again, my Sunday is thwarted by insomnia, pokey children, and my own lack of discipline.  I’m not going to feel sorry for myself.  I feel sorry for God sometimes.  I’m fairly new to sincere acts of faith.  I spent a lot of time in one kind of church or another when I was a kid but never have I experienced anything akin to what I do at mass.  Today, the best I can do is rest, remember, read,…

— Pixie Dust!

Pixie by Phil Noto

Pixie, also known as Megan Gwynn, can fly and loves doing it.  Welsh by birth, she’s a cheerful sprite of a magical girl.  The magic came through hard times but left her with the ability to wield the “Souldagger”. By far one of the coolest abilities she has is the “pixie dust” she produces, which intoxicates the effected, causing hallucinations worthy of a Lisa Frank print.…

— Your Lifetime Reading List Sucks

Your Lifetime Reading List Sucks

Maybe I’m a little snarky. Oh, hell…I’m a snob, I’ll admit it. Food, books, perfume. If someone else is making it for me, I can be a pill. I know what I like. So when Amazon decided to tell me all about what I should be reading I got a little hitch in the ole eyebrow.  They are the book people after all. Bezos started the company with the premise of selling books at unbeatable prices. The game…

— Your Lifetime Reading List Stinks

That’s right. I’m judging you. I may not be qualified to do much else but when I glance over your list of books to read in a lifetime a little part of my heart dries up and snaps off.  I know, I know. To each their own. Everyone loves something different and if a person is picking up a book that should be good enough.  I get that. This is the sand that’s grinding my beach reading gears…

The Ebola outbreak that has killed hundreds of people in West Africa since it started in Guinea months ago has reached its second wave and is “totally out of control,” said an official for Doctors Without Borders.
As of Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the number of cases at 362 — more than any other outbreak on record. Ebola is extremely deadly and this outbreak has killed 330 people, according to the World Health Organization.
