The Camera Lens

The Camera Lens

Life is like a camera lens images that come to me

Because of what I know now no way to be free

Images of sadness that will always be

Just turn off that camera that is the key,

So…

The Long Play

     I’ve been a fan of infinity for ever, or at least since I figured out how to drive the calculator in the physics lab nuts.  It was about four pounds...first one I ever saw. Pre TI. I can’t remember the brand. The red numbers on the face would just keep going until stopped by hitting the clear button. 

      Last night I was tossing and turning. I have the ability to stop this, but I forget that I can. My brain won’t stop until I tell it to...like those spinning numbers on that…

I saw Mary Poppins on Friday

My wife wanted to go see it and I had no objection, so we went. It’s a decent remake, but I’m not writing a review of the picture. I just want to talk about a single scene featuring a cameo.

The character played by the cameo actor is an old man, white hair, heavy white beard. He is stooped, and he does a tap dance on a desktop. Quite a graceful one. He moves like a young man playing an old man. …

YCMTSU

From the YCMTSU (You Can't Make This Shit Up) files, China is about to enter the U.S. auto market. But that's not what strains credulity; no, what makes that cause for forehead slapping is the brand name: Meet the Trumpchi!…

Young Dick

      Saw Vice. Hollywood missed. Dicks DUI’s do not interest me near as much as his childhood, which was not dealt with at all. Who was young Dick? And why did the movie leave young Dick out? I’d say Wyoming is harder to get secrets out of than Vegas...just guessing. Talk about a place no one talks about? Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word? 

       White hope, bread, socks...a single seat in the house, Senators, and one big dick. Not a thing about little Richard, or…

Working The Shutdown, Again.

      I’m not going to get lyrical with it...as I am, working the shut down again.

Back in the day I wrote King of the Load....I just remembered, about sperm donors. I’m beyond such now, but certainly not above it.  

        I went to DC,

        in 2013,

        And ate on K Street, 

        Alone,

                The kids said what the heck are you doing here? 

         I  was there because the conference I was supposed to be…

Defenestration

The other day some pundit on the tube used the word “defenestration”. I had a dim memory of having heard it before, but I confess I had no idea what it meant, and I certainly had no idea of its origin or history. According to Wikipedia, “the word comes from the New Latin de (out of or away from) and fenestra (window or opening)”. The history is a bit more interesting, again according to Wikipedia:

“The term…

MAHI

    I am behind. 85 pages behind. Right now I’m in 2000...June, half way to San Diego. I had retired in May to resume a stalled career. The phone rang and I was up and running like old times. IC4U2...that was my program. 

    I am behind, and not wearing a uniform. I’m old, but happier than I ever  was. I’m at page 215, and might not get to it today at all. I study the coast, first and peck away at book four post Open Salon only after. 

     IC4U2...like it or not. It’s my…
