September 2023 Notes

Treat everything you consume as food and reject that which is poisonous.

There’s literally zero reason you can’t grow your own tomatoes and steal eggs from unsuspecting birds.

March 2023 Notes

A young Ionian entered Athens wearing a purple gown with gold trimming. Someone asked him where he was from, and he replied: “I’m from money.”

My favorite anecdote is when he saw a whore’s kid throw rocks at a crowd and said be careful not to hit your dad.

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning, I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

Thank you, ambiguous pipe
Pumping liquids or gas
From distant places
To places unknown
We don’t know what you do
But we couldn’t do it without you

What you said is literally the exact opposite of the truth. You should work in network news.

The Flintstones were set in 16th century Brazil.

Sayaka Murata Convenience Store Woman

I was shocked by their reaction. As a convenience store worker, I couldn’t believe they were putting gossip about store workers before a promotion in which chicken skewers that usually sold at 130 yen were to be put on sale at the special price of 110 yen. What on earth had happened to the pair of them?

I quit school in elementary because of recess. Too many games.

That’s what the ideology of the “personal brand” is all about: the reduction of the self into a packaged, marketed, and commodified product. The negation of your own nature. It’s a non-physical form of suicide, really.

Could you imagine a Western doctor saying “Ah, yes… that is normal. For the first time you’re beginning to notice that your sensory perceptions are nothing but electronic signals and that direct perception of an objective reality is impossible. No need to worry, this is simply one of the first stages of developing detachment from worldly desire.”? No way.

Brain as the local hardware and Mind as the non-local software.

David Lynch

In my country there is a book called “Iona” in which a guy awakens in the belly of a giant whale. He goes to earn his perceived freedom by gutting the whale and reaching the shore. He then looks at the sky and the ocean, and realizes that he’s in the belly of a larger whale. He proceeds to seppuku in despair, cutting his belly.

But that I may not give too much Encouragement to the Profession, I must inform my maritime Readers, that the far greater Part of these Rovers are cut short in the Pursuit, by a sudden Precipitation into the other World.

I don’t understand the point in charging bills and imposing debts that can never realistically be repaid, but apparently that’s what the country is built on.

Mr. Mencken maintains that no quackery has ever been given up by the American people until they have had a worse quackery to take its place.

In the words of the Atari Jaguar, do the math.

Willie Nelson

I think it’s just terrible and disgusting how everyone treated Lance Armstrong, especially after what he achieved, winning seven Tour de France races while on drugs. When I was on drugs, I couldn’t even find my bike.

Willie Nelson

See the elephant — to see all the sights of a town, especially the edgier aspects.

“A young Sioux Indian from Haskell Institute said he was going to Chicago to hunt buffalo. He was told there was no game of that kind there, but that if he wanted to see the elephant he was on the right track,” the Kansas Daily Journal reported on Sept. 2, 1891.

Also sometimes used by members of the military to describe going to war.

Mt. Fuji Sunrise (July 2021)

Sunrise on Mt. Fuji (July 2021)

It is I, Seagull! Everything is fine. I see the horizon; it’s a sky blue with a dark strip. How beautiful the Earth is … everything is going well.

Why go outside alone?
When no one is around to perceive you, “you” disappear. This is the highest and ultimate freedom.

Americans say they feel closer to God since September 11th.

Wrong Mr. Pickford altogether.

Having the honor to be born in your kingdom, I find my body obeying your Excellency, but my soul will never.

Nichiren’s Senji-Sho

In response to questions about the fear of eternal hell and damnation that many have, Neville replied with a quote from Scripture, “Not one shall be lost in all my holy mountain.”

Coming of Age Day, Hoshigaoka Station, Nagoya, January 2022

Hoshigaoka Station (January 2021)

There is an “otherness” about grace. In a sense, it is not the person exhibiting grace, but rather God or nature acting through them. It is making an incredible action “appear effortless.”

Effortlessness, ease – these words imply passivity, or going with the flow. A willow blowing in the wind appears graceful. A defiant oak, bracing against a storm, not so much.

“Be like the Willow, it is good for nothing, so it is not often cut down.”

Ikebukuro Station, Tokyo Japan 1976

The trains here always seem to be in a hurry, like they’re trying to escape the city.

Rossini, the great opera composer, could recall only two moments of real grief in his life. One, when his mother died. And the second time was out on a boat when a chicken stuffed with truffles fell into the water and was lost.

It's all bot anyways. You can't dismiss ALL criticism as bots.

In short, the room-level consciousness spectrum has been hijacked by social engineers and corporate blackhearts. They aim it like a low orbital ion cannon at any target they please.

We’re circling in on a solution, I can feel it…

January 2023 Notes

Hey chief, let’s talk, why not?

Happy New Year

Huracán Ramírez

It’s the end of money. Everybody put your money in the fire.

Dr. Red Duke

The guy who “operated” on JFK basically went back out and told the authorities “that hombre’s dead, amigos”, and then went on to build Life Flight, and was a household name for years, going on TV, telling people to exercise instead of taking pills.

Dr. Red Duke
I’m Dr. Red Duke

The crickets and the rust-beetles scuttled among the nettles of the sage thicket. “Vámonos, amigos,” he whispered, and threw the busted leather flintcraw over the loose weave of the saddlecock.

Gunpei Yokoi said “The Nintendo way of adapting technology is not to look for the state of the art but to utilize mature technology that can be mass-produced cheaply.” He articulated his philosophy of “Lateral Thinking of Withered Technology” (枯れた技術の水平思考, “Kareta Gijutsu no Suihei Shikō”)

Gunpei Yokoi – Do these playworlds really need to be that photorealistic, I wonder? I actually consider it more of a minus if the graphics are too realistic. There’s a similar line of thinking in the entertainment world—using soft focus lenses when women are filmed, for instance. When that is done, each person can project their own conception of “beautiful” onto the woman being filmed, and everyone will see their own personal Venus.

What do you look forward to most about our return to pre-industrial times? For me it’s dodging horse shit as I walk down the street to my job at the blacksmith.

touch typing is the most in demand skill. i have a friend who makes $160k, he did a touch typing bootcamp.

I’m falling for the learn to type meme. What’s the best way to make money? Should I do Mavis Beacon or Typesy Typing?

I’ll withhold judgement until I hear the opinion of a white guy with glasses.

Ahh Jesus wept, I love it. Go trip the light fantastic, cut the rug for me, Jimmy!

Lift with your legs, not your back.

After reading the material Hyman had compiled for the book, Durante commented on it: “COLOSSAL, GIGANTIC, MAGNANIMOUS, and last but not first, AURORA BOREALIS.”

Probably give them food or wine, but certainly not render unto them what is Caesar’s.

December 2022 Notes

You’re the least tubular person I know. You’re the definition of ungnarly.

Merry Christmas

Men forbidden to honour a king will instead honour millionaires, athletes, film-stars, even famous prostitutes or gangsters. Spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served. Deny it food and it will gobble poison.

Japanese Christian Kimono Mary Obi

The LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

“When you think of standing drinking in Nagoya, you think of Daikoku.”
Our favorite styles are [standing drinking] and [close combat].

Hikari Food Service
Depending on the location and the shape of the store, there are some restaurants that are seated instead of standing, but I would like to stick to the small box style with an average of 10 tsubo. Our company slogan is “Innovate 10 tsubo.” I want to bring about such innovation.

The world is just a barrel-organ which the Lord God turns Himself. We all have to dance to the tune which is already on the drum.

Everyone must play his part, even McGregor Umbongo.


Kaato tweets "I'm not dormant."

It was a typical night in Tokyo – until we got the call. Apparently, the President caused quite a ruckus at a sushi joint in Shibuya. Witnesses said he was shooting off fireworks in the bathroom like it was no big deal.

The Conversion of Saint Augustine

Saint Augustine states “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”
