Reflections on a Certain Day

Past life's numbing sensation

The cloudy waters of alienation

The introspection of isolation

Is this my final destination?…

Scientists Say Plants Can Actually Talk

Scientists Say Plants Can Actually Talk:  Botanists say plants can really talk and have the recordings to prove it.  In fact, visitors to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden can actually listen to recordings of the songs corn plants sing.  Yea, well then, anyone who comes over to my place, better make up their minds pretty damn fast -…

BindleSnitch Update

We are making progress. 



We were made aware that we were running on an old version of php. Updating to the current version has solved a number of problems...and given us a major speed increase.



We have decided to do away with the minimum word requirement for two reasons: it didn't really make sense when we thought it out again because of the numbers of valuable posts that would never make the  mimumum word count....and because the plugin we were using to impose that…

The Better Shepherd

             Deer Island. Masters of the dark side gather to gloat. Imagine that. I went to night school, mostly, before and after my free tuition deal ended the first week of my sixth semester in early 1978. I rang the bell, and walked off not fully knowing then that I had been knocked off. It was my thing, this thing of theirs, and there was no my way, I just did not know. 

            Who did? What I did know I could not articulate. My psyche was being crafted into a design my…

Scientists Closing In On Hidden Scottish Meteorite Crater

Scientists Closing In On Hidden Scottish Meteorite Crater:  Scientists say they’re close to finding a large impact crater, believed to have formed when a huge meteorite struck just off the coast of Scotland approximately 1.2 billion years ago.  All I can say is, it’s a damn good thing it didn’t hit Scotland in modern times, because a helluva lot of people might have…

Raytheon5: Social Science Unscrambled

             Navigational aids are not directional cue cards. Received signals let the lost know where they are, not where to go next. Waiting and seeing is what we were taught to do when lost. 

                                              Stay put 

               We knew how to stay put.  Waiting and seeing is not as easy as it seems, or exactly the same as staying put. Some just run crazy into the woods and some just give up. I never got lost at sea. I was out…

Remembering the OS dead: An update

Hi guys,

A few days ago, I posted here about what to do about those (all too many) OSers who have passed and whose work may now disappear forever from the internet, with the shutting down of Our.

I got some wonderful comments on that post, both kind messages addressed to me, and profound thoughts regarding what to do about our OS dead.

Ultimately, here is what I've decided, personally:

Since I was closest to these two dearly departed, I'm going to do sites for…

Spencer Has Moved

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Spencer Bohren through another musician friend. She tours the US and Europe and knew him well. We spent an afternoon together shortly after the flooding of New Orleans.

He was an historian and story teller. His "roots" knowledge was extensive and well expressed in his performances.…

On the other hand...

....There are those among us who are happy and proud to be characterized and identified as racists.

Do you believe that the society can do without these card carrying bigots, or, do you  believe the idea that "It takes all kinds..." maintains some sort of perpetual validity?…
