Cooking with Plutonium

» JLaw to Educate Students about the Bullshit of Political Corruption

Speaking of watershed moments in the new age .. Jennifer Lawrence is going to take off a year from acting and go talk to students around the country ..

Jennifer Lawrence to educate students about the bullshit of political corruption

.. educating them about the bullshit that is currently going on in 'our' government. The bullshit of political corruption.

When I first heard this story (from 60 Minutes, 25 Feb 2018) the voice in my my head said, "Now we're cooking with plutonium."

Some time ago I wrote that Nietzsche, for me, is about » a crisis without equal on earth. These words come from Nietzsche himself.

Nietzsche says that Philosophy means living voluntarily among ice and high mountains like Zarathustra does

I have a copy of the Modern Library Classics » Basic Writings of Nietzsche, which contains complete texts of five of Nietzsche's most important works, from his first book to his last.

  1. The Birth of Tragedy (1872)
  2. Beyond Good and Evil (1886)
  3. On the Genealogy of Morals (1887)
  4. The Case of Wagner (1888)
  5. Ecce Homo | How One Becomes What One Is (written 1888, published 1908)

» Smart, Focused, Pissed & Determined

Speaking of slaying them all .. check out Rachael Denhollander.

Rachael Dennhollander and Kyle Stephens on CBS this Morning Jan 25, 2018

Oh, she is a woman on a mission. She is going after them all. You do not want to be on her shit-list. You do not want to be in her crosshairs.

She is smart and she is focused and she is pissed .. and she is coming for them. It's only a matter of time now.

» Paraphrasing Habakkuk

I can feel something in me wanting to paraphrase Habakkuk the prophet .. from that section where I grabbed my title from.

But let me think about this a little. I want to make sure that I get it right.

I will get back to you on the Habakkuk paraphrase .. but it should be obvious that he is complaining about bad shit that has been going on for a very long time.

Some of the women to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein

He is saying, "This is a crock o' shit. How are you letting this nasty shit go on for so long .. without judging these fuckers? .. who are doing this nasty shit day-n-night. This is not right and you know it aint right."

Notice the pattern? Notice the recursion? It naturally makes me wonder » "How far does this thing go? And where?"

This is why this thing feels bigger than me. One of the reasons, anyway.

» I Could Not have Possibly Known how Well these Two Topics Would Go Together

I am mentioning this particular example here .. of these two very different topics showing up together .. because this is something that I could not have possibly known about the secret life of Harvey Weinstein.

I mean, Meryl fucking Streep worked with him .. she shook hands with him .. she works in that industry .. and even she claims that she had no clue.

» The Albert Speer Excuse for the German People

I find it curious that, the day after I wrote this thing about Meryl Streep not knowing .. so therefore I couldnt have possibly known ..

Albert Speer (1905-1981) Nazi

.. I happened to watch this video about » Albert Speer: The Nazi Who Said Sorry.

Many times I will just watch the first few minutes of these historical videos .. to get a flavor for the content.

Did you happen to notice, girly, how I wrote that entry titled » When Justice Comes Out Perverted (March 19) where I write directly to Harvey Weinstein .. something I have never done before.

Harvey Weinstein's accusers tell their stories by Ronan Farrow Oct 23, 2017

Did you also happen to notice how that entry came directly after another entry titled » What's it Like to Lie with Hollywood's Hottest Starlet? (Feb 23) .. where I write to your young friend, Dove?

Dove Cameron catches the eye of Bella Thorne

I was thinking about this at the end of the theme where I share my experiences responding to a report of harassment from a pretty, young girl who had complained to me about the older, male boss who she had been assigned to work for.

I was surprised at the size of my own huevos rancheros .. for using such a title. (Of course, I always blame these kinds of things on you, girly.)

But you must admit that this is a ballsy title .. even for me.

I can tell that me-the-writer has larger huevos rancheros than me-the-person. Because I would normally never pose such a question to a young, industrial-strength hottie.

I'm just being honest here .. about the obvious. (Honesty leads to intimacy .. the voices keep telling me.)

Getting Far Away from the Keeper of Grudges

[ This entry originated here » The Place where Imagination becomes Reality (25 Dec 2017). ]

The difference between my mom's side of the family and my dad's side .. was a big difference .. in many ways .. but mainly because my mom's side did not harbor grudges.

My mother once said to me, "You know .. your father doesnt talk to his brothers. Ever. He talks to his sisters, but never to his brothers. I dont want you and your brother to be like that. You're all each other have."

» He Silently Got Up and Went into His Room

I forget how old I was ... maybe 8 or 9 .. the age where you become family-aware and are trying to figure out who is who and which cousin belongs to whom.

It was during this time when I was sitting in the living room around the TV with the folks and I asked a question about my dad's dad .. whom I had never met .. because he died before I was born.

» Harnessing Complexity

Speaking of glimpses into the mind of the greatest writer who ever lived .. I want to mention something called » black box abstraction. A key thing .. a concept which I got from learning about how programming languages work.

The reason why I was so drawn to the concept of black box abstraction .. is because it is the philosophy behind how you » harness complexity.

This is the reason why I try to convert as much of my writing to Movable Type pages .. because having an individual page dedicated solely to some concept helps with the process of (block box) abstraction.

» Hawaii was the First Place to Feel Like a New Home

They did this while I was off turning matter into energy for the military-industrial complex, and going to strip clubs with the Dog in Waikiki, after smoking Maui Wowie and whatnot.

Hawaii was the first place that felt like home to me after I left home. By then I had already lived in a number of other places, but the combination of time-away-from-home, and time-spent-in-a-new-place made Hawaii feel like home for me.

» Along the Lines of an Invisible Umbilical Breaking

That was a trippy feeling .. which is why I remember it so well. This was the first time in my life when Connecticut did not feel like my 'home.'

It happened fast as you snapped your fingers. It was not a gradual thing .. like you might imagine.

I am trying to decide if I should say that it was like an invisible umbilical broke .. an invisible umbilical between Connecticut and Hawaii.

That might not be the best way to say it .. but it is definitely along those lines.

I was walking home at the time .. toward Diamond Head .. along Ala Wai blvd in Waikiki ..

Sidewalk along Ala Wai blvd and Ala Wai canal in Waikiki with Diamond Head in background

.. when I was living with the Dog. Right below the two strippers from Vegas.

» I Bet that Anna Knows what I am Talking About

Something tells me that Anna knows exactly what I am talking about here.

Dear Anna, it does indeed get me into trouble sometimes when I voice my opinion

Once you watch a video by a certain person, then YouTube suggests other videos by the same channel.

I have watched a handful of her videos. She cracks me up. She had me laughing out loud.

This is quality stuff that she is doing. I am impressed. The attention-to-detail is remarkable.

There are many aspects to her videos that are striking. It's not a one-dimensional thing that she is doing.
