I don't really write as much as i used to here. I guess sometimes it feels like a task and sometimes I feel like blogging is sort of like a podium where everyone is talking and vying for attention space...."Hey I'm important and here is why, listen to what I know and what I've done".
So I've been torn I guess lately and wondering how to justify my niche in the space. For one I refuse to carry on with blogging if it seems like a task so I'm trying to use it more as a documenting space for my artistic vents. I also like sharing information and getting feedback from people concerning shared interests and broadening the context web.
This concludes today's session of dear diary, "the typepad psychiatrist rant", "intimate sessions with eric jones and whoever stumbles upon this blog", "the sky is falling and no one is there to catch it".
I'm losing it ya'll, I tell you, I'm losing it.
So I've taken it upon myself to add an extra ounce of hubris to my blog diet and indulge you all with monthly newsletters (*with a tint of humor) regarding the lives of my roomate and myself. Without further adieu:
Well Chris and I have decided to send out weekly (we thought daily would be too exhausting for us) newsletters just about things going on in our lives. Everyone is always asking me “how are you, what have you been up to?” and now you can just read this newsletter and when you see me either just pass by or give me a high five or if you can make a sign like a bird with your left hand then I’ll take that to mean you read the newsletter and you liked it. Anyways people have been making family Christmas letters for years so what is the god damn difference?
So I bought a beanie today and I hear tomorrow is supposed to be pretty cold. I got a grayish beanie. I bought it on Market Street in San Francisco!!!!! It’s crazy what you can do in a city!!!!! Anyway I was thinking of wearing it tomorrow but wanted to ask if everyone likes it.
Here I am in front of the house!!!! You can see the bricks from our steps!!!!
Here I am Driving!!!!!@#$%^&*() Can you believe it!!!!
Doiing laundry with my beanie on!!!!
And the beanie from the side!!!! Can you believe it???!!!!
Anyway please let me know if I should wear the beanie:
1)Just in front of the house 2)In front of the house but only so people can see me from the side 3)Doing laundry 4)Driving
Other than buying beanies and wearing them I haven’t been up to too much. Just living life like everyone says one should. Welp that’s all for me…I hope everyone is doing well!!!!!! Can you believe it!!!!!!??!!!??
Hey Friends! You thought this week you were just gonna here from Jones, but I’ve got an update for you too. It’s me, Youngies!!! Eric’s best pal. Wait ‘til you see . . . YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO!!!!!!!
You see that bright green thing in front of my right hand in the picture? That thing I’m kinda pointing at with my left hand, but not really, like I mean I’m just pointing a little bit below where the bright green thing actually is?? You won’t believe it – that’s MY FIRST BABY sweet banana pepper!!!!!!! Can you spell G-R-E-E-N T-H-U-M-B????? (That spells green thumb). It’s so awesome. Finding out that I’m a natural when it comes to gardening has got me so jazzed!! I’M SO JAZZED!!!!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THE SIZEOF THESE BEANS!!!!
I’m so jazzed about my garden and new found gardening skills. I told you – there’s no way you would have believed it if I hadn’t told you!!!! But now you know. My secret garden is a secret no more! I can’t wait for any of you all to visit me in the garden some time soon. Or maybe I’ll visit you sometime soon. Don’t worry – I won’t bring my shovel (look below at the picture)! Ha!!
I’m so jazzed! I’m THE KING OF THE GARDEN! I’ve got a shovel in my hands over my head looking all wild!!
I was talking to some friends recently about what the "God how nice it is to have all information at our fingertips with computers, how did they cope before" conversation will be in 50 years or so. I was thinking it must be related to neurotechnology. What will the achievement be?
Well technology is doing all it can to bridge social gaps based on affinity now with community networks. But it can only do so much and is limited to an online context. Well imagine walking down the street or being in a bar and being able to see neurographs of some sort indicating your compatibility with that of others in your vicinity. I mean let's say based on color you could see how compatible you are with another person in the room and be able to see the graph through glasses, or some sort of application or apparatus that isn't worth exploring here because it's something we can't imagine right?
People would be talking about "damn what did people do back in 2005 with so many compatible (lovers, friends, soul mates) people in their surroundings without taking advantage of it?"
Until then we have other things that indicate compatibility. For instance I love Willy Wonka. I have a brown Willy Wonka shirt I wear all the time. It's not like wearing a Nike shirt cause that's not isolating or distinguishing enough. For the time being while we don't have the neuroimaging to indicate compatibility on the fly we have bright red shoes, willy wonka shirts, crazy tatoos, pink hair, feather hats.....individuality. So get crazy people cause a willy wonka shirt can be a great substitute for a heat based neurograph!
