Gravy made with drippings….


“It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes.”

~~ Agent Rogersz, Repo Man ~~


No, it’s not a myth. It’s melting….

Hajime…. Our opening quote is quite appropriate, especially since it happened, to me. Well, not quite an explosion; more like a strong earthquake in my head. I’m not exactly certain of the details, as, for some reason, I seem to have lost my reason. Wait. That isn’t accurate; I still have it, but, it seems so pointless, and I can’t find the emotional energy to persuade it to even try to put a couple simple factoids together, just for fun, with no mention of profit or loss. If it doesn’t come back soon, I may have to go mundane, & start eating Cheetos, or something. I HATE Cheetos, too….

Okay, I’ll stop. I had thought perhaps a bit of nonsense might loosen up the old grey cells, but, nothing doing. It’s a conundrum, to be sure. Here I am, prepared to create a Pearl, and there is so much nothing in my mind, it’s just plain scary in there. I mean, a full paragraph to lead up to a punch line, and all I can come up with is Cheetos. Pathetic, even if I do hate them. To tell the truth, I used to eat ’em a lot, but, something about the orange glow-in-the-dark color of the tongue after just two of them started to make my eyes water… That & the sharp, bitter taste of chemicals they leave behind, after the faux-cheesy flavor goes wherever a fake flavor goes, started to make me think about just what was in them…. I don’t recommend it…. or them…

Since there’s nothing useful in my head, we’ll have to cheat again, as I’m up late, and starting even later. So be it. At least it will be all be fresh cheating, performed this morning for your reading pleasure. Or, a close approximation of same. We’ll take what we can get. In order to do so, I think, given our essentially useless mental state, we’ll just forgo further idiocy in this section, & use what little wherewithal we have to go look for some coherence further down the page. As justification, I will retreat into a pearl, with a strong statement on the efficacy of personal choice from a surprising, if not completely unlikely source, to wit: “Did you ever notice how ‘why not?’ is always the right decision?” — Marilyn Monroe

Shall we Pearl?….

“I have been a stranger in a strange land.”

    I’m cheating today. That, of course, means we go to default for today’s music. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt….. Try to enjoy it, anyway, okay?…. Hey, if nothing else, know I pick the one with the coolest picture, so, at least you can look at that while you listen….

    Everybody knows, and, apparently, loves Winnie the Pooh. And, why not, I may ask? Well, let me tell ya…. Pooh’s got a darker side, one A.A. Milne never suspected. It has recently been discovered Pooh had another life, one the public was never allowed to see. I’ve managed to collect some of the things he’s said, and/or done, that might give you an idea of what Pooh is REALLY like…. Enjoy!….

From 10/24/2012:

WARNING: X-Rated Material below…. If the following offends you, well, hey, don’t read it…. I happen to think it’s funny, so, deal with it….  *wink*

I know I’ve spoken to you before about the darker side of Pooh…. He’s actually, for a Bear with Very Little Brains, a pretty swinging guy, and stays active in a part of town that I’m don’t even go to…. In fact, he has been caught en flagrante delecto on numerous occasions, and has never shown a bit of regret, or a shred of remorse. He is an incorrigible sex addict, which is, when you stop to think about it, really, really sick…. I give you now more examples of just how nasty he has been known to be….

— Bother! said Pooh, as he lured the young girl into the bushes.

— Bother! said Pooh, with a sexy grin, as he tied up his favorite redhead!!

— Bother! said Pooh, as Macgyver ran to him with his pants down.

— Bother! said Pooh, when Christopher Robin came in his mouth.

— Bother! said Pooh, as Piglet pulled out the Anal Intruder.

— Bother! said Pooh, as he rolled over and lit a cigarette.

And, worst of all…..

— Bother! said Pooh, as he flashed a group of nuns.

I wouldn’t have believed it, if I didn’t see them there in black and white….. Hey, it’s not any harder to believe this, than it is to believe some of the shit coming out of Mitt the Twitt’s mouth, now, is it?….



Accentuated Lessons

Bold statements of calculated intent
Become common rule of the malcontent.
Avarice assumes such attractive wear
Beguiling deception, illusory and fair.

Grasping and pulling with ghostly hands
Legally proper in all the signatory lands.
Seeking and finding each vulnerable soul
Anguish as payment for exacting the toll.

Wraiths of commerce’s invisible dead guards
Still haunt the dreams left in sad empty yards.
While absentee nobles sit in stiffly elegant splendor
Served by sad-faced detainees in abject surrender.

Escape from reality is illusory at best
Often we falter and fail its daily test.
Only when focused on inner strength
Does peace stay with us for any length.

Peace lies within, always…..

Stuff to Remember


“Happiness is the only good,
reason the only torch, justice the only worship,
humanity the only religion, and love the only priest.”

~~ Robert G. Ingersoll ~~


“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”

~~ William Shakespeare ~~


“Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool.”

~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~


“Nobody really cares if you’re miserable, so you might as well be happy.”

~~ Cynthia Nelms ~~


“Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another.”

~~ Juvenal, Satires ~~


“He should not vow to walk in the dark, who has not seen the nightfall.”

~~ Elrond ~~


“One final paragraph of advice:
Do not burn yourselves out.
Be as I am – a reluctant enthusiast…
a part time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic.
Save the other half of yourselves
and your lives for pleasure and adventure.
It is not enough to fight for the land;
it is even more important to enjoy it.
While you can.
While it’s still here.
So get out there and hunt and fish
and mess around with your friends,
ramble out yonder and explore the forests,
encounter the grizz, climb the mountains,
bag the peaks, run the rivers,
breathe deep of that yet sweet and lurid air,
sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness,
that lovely, mysterious and awesome space.
Enjoy yourselves,
keep you brain in you head and your head firmly attached to the body,
the body active and alive,
and I promise you this much:
I promise  you this one sweet victory over our enemies,
over those deskbound people with their hearts in a safety deposit box
and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators.
I promise you this:
 You will outlive the bastards.”

~~ Edward Abbey ~~


I did it. That, in and of itself, is a minor miracle. At this point, trying to explain or justify such a remark would be foolish, and, I can tell you, for sure and for certain, Sarge & Mom didn’t raise no fool. Okay, honesty rules here, so, y’all should know I just had to delete three lines of BS that might have kept us here for much too long. After all, this IS the closing paragraph, and, by golly, we’re gonna close this thing, and, now… See y’all tomorrow, ffolkes; if I don’t stop now, we’ll be here until then. Don’t fret, I’ll be back, and so will you…. See ya….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
   and sometimes,
I just sits.

  1. Hope you had a wonderful weekend….the music is delightful…..when you wrote about Cheetohs and the ingredients I thought of something……MacBeth and the witches…..
    Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the cauldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
    Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
    Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing,
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
    Sounds like the ingredients of a hot dog….

    Could not resist….have a great day my friend….chuq

  2. Oh God.. mY friEnd.. gigoid
    the burnout.. the potential
    incredible disadvantage
    of the Asperger..
    ADHD.. Bi-Polar
    way of bEinG
    and extended
    broader phenotype
    spectrum as such
    that constitutes
    10 to 15
    percent of
    the population
    per the over systematizers
    vs empathizers of social
    animal way
    of culture
    Great advice
    to get out in the
    forest away from
    digital online Jungle..
    (note to self.. go see
    that movie by Disney
    “The Jungle Book”
    this week..)
    and the nice thing
    about allnaturale
    art.. one
    can see in
    real time nothing
    hidden of the ravages of
    sitting too much.. and
    eating ‘cheetos’
    life… in my case..
    it was months of
    fast food burgers..
    and increasing girth of
    waist.. and 10 Lbs
    to 230 LBS.. sTiLL
    230 LBS but finAlly
    getting back in

    God dam
    ya there would
    be much less

    walked naked
    from birth in a reasonable number
    oF friendly population iN knoWinG
    each other as such.. as clothes
    do hide cultural functional
    disabilities from the
    reaLITy oF
    less than
    free and wiLd
    hUman animal now..
    anyway.. been getting out
    into.. the forRest.. the beaches more..
    and away from what has alWays become
    a Restrictive Repetitive Behavior aS Asperger
    Way for me.. to mix it up.. in reason and art
    oF miNd and boDy Yin and Yang Balance
    is certainly sTilL a great TAO
    way to
    But anyway.. when i was
    young and more or less
    mute.. volume of i iN exPreSsinG
    SpiRit of talk and emoTioN one
    and same non-verbaLLy too..
    turned way way down.. then..
    my hiGh spiRit
    elders as
    story talers..
    including A salty old
    sailor named Mick who was
    my boss for over a decade at
    the Military Bowling Center i worked
    as DOD employee.. for almost
    2 decades aT..
    told these wonderful
    sea stories.. of his bar fights
    and other adventures across the
    Ocean of Navy boats on float..
    and Liberty
    of course FREE..
    i could write technically
    but paragraph creating verbal
    expresSinG was way beyond my
    ability then.. except for rote fActs
    here and there..
    and now i have
    sea stories too.. yes..
    even a few bar room skirmishes
    to tale too.. but better yet.. Jesus F
    iN Christ.. i’ve got an iphone6 and my
    real Goal of a lifetime dreAM

    of thousands
    of micro verses
    of macro whole

    of peace

    at Old Seville
    too.. and oh too..
    the logs of Dance
    Walking 5300 miles
    plus noW iN 33 months
    all across the public
    in metro
    with YouTube
    videos of that
    in tow too..
    Question is.. WiLL anyone
    have the patience to sit sTiLL
    long enough for me to tale them
    the hell i came from in 19 medical
    disorders.. including the worst pain
    known to mankind.. named type
    two trigeminal neuralgia
    like dentist drill
    in right eye
    and ear for
    66 months from
    wake to sleep..
    Sjogren’s Syndrome
    too.. with eyes no
    longer making tears..
    Severe Degenerative
    Arthritis in spine..
    fused vetebra
    in spine too along
    with spinal
    stenosis and
    closed up nasal
    sinuses per deviated
    Congenitally Septum
    way in nose too.. Severe depression..
    Anhedonia.. Alexithymia.. Severe
    Anxiety.. Panic attacks
    and a dash
    of PTSD too..
    with Agoraphobia..
    shut-in of bedroom
    life for 66 months as
    not so well.. aT aLL..
    and yes.. last and somewhat
    least as far as all these
    challenges go the
    New diagnosis
    of Autism
    Disorder still
    classified in Sweden
    in Gillberg way as
    Asperger’s here
    noW trUe
    sTiLL for me..
    that’s enough..
    the rest of the disorders
    are minor compared
    to all that said
    and done and
    overAll remissed/
    cured by attending
    professionals own
    report.. on or about
    July 22nd of 2013..
    Well it’s true.. we live in
    a Twitter age of bits and bytes..
    only the much older folks will
    likely have the attention and
    focus or even interest
    to listen to a sea
    story iN liFe of
    adversity.. challenge..
    and change in Victory
    now this long/EPIC..

    • Nice song/poem today, Fred… I DO remember Red’s clown, and he was a good one, as clowns go, but, then, Red was a comedian right to the bone. My favorite character of his was Clem Kadiddlehopper, and, of course, Freddie the Freeloader… Of all the comedians I’ve seen, (most of whom are the best social critic/philosophers of society… the Jesters, y’know?), nobody, ‘cept maybe George Carlin, ever made me laugh as hard as Red did every week….
