the future is you can "borrow" an ebook from the library but you have to wait because they have a limited number of "copies" to lend and they're all out

There are days I have trouble getting into my writing groove, and this is one of them. Used to be, I'd get all angsty about it, but these days I just roll with it and take a little breather when it happens. I'd rather write fifty words a day and enjoy it than force out a thousand and hate every minute of it.

i am something you keep in your pocket, or else i fit neatly on your keychain. i keep the time and tell it for you when you least want to know

i am the line of scum left in your sink after a year of brushing teeth and brushing hair

i am easy to use and easy to use and i am easy to use

A brief thought: I think we need to take a long step back from "irony" culture.

There's a pattern I see repeatedly where people immersed in "irony" seem to not comprehend that other people actually believe what they're saying, because "irony" dictates that THEY don't believe anything they're saying. It's all a joke; it's just "for the lulz", to score laughs and Internet Points.

Being earnest is a completely foreign concept, and so they assume NOBODY is earnest.

So tell me again how giving the problem to a business that needs to pay it's managers to do powerpoint presentations, make a profit and pay dividends to it's share holders is going to be cheaper and more efficient than running it as publicly owned service. When, if it goes bust, the public have to bail it out because there's no alternative left.

"... why is having an art practice important, an art music practice, and what value does it serve to our communities? I believe there is magic in the subversive and that to some extent this level of experimentation still remains untapped by capitalism’s claws. It is magic in that it is not yet viable under capitalism."

Don’t fucking let the liberals sanitize Ursula K Le Guin’s legacy. She was an anarchist. She opposed capitalism.

Don’t fucking let them

When viewed from the height of a man, Charlemagne, King of the Franks, King of the Lombards, and Emperor of the Romans was magnificent to behold in all his splendor. But, when viewed from the height of a child, all you could see was up his nose.
