Something that made my day. →
The semester’s almost over and I’ve got overdue projects and such so sorry it’s been a while, I’m really behind on my dashboard. I just had a thought that I’d like to muse. I’ve been on EDIT: *lots of drugs.* But I am not addicted to a single one of the above drugs. I am typing this with a bag of sugary candy in my lap feeling the urge every 10 seconds to dump...
The Truth →
hereblog: H/t mandigray (full story here). Long story short, Tom Coburn (R-sane for once) tells constituents that their fear of the health care bill has been disingenuously stoked by the likes of Fox News, including their fear of jail time for non-compliance. Bill O’Reilly invites Coburn onto his show for what we’re meant to believe is a fact check, with O’Reilly indignantly stating, “We...
I’m working on the next installment of the useless story. It is a bit ambitious and will take some time. I also want to announce that I don’t really want to continue that other series I started (with only one post lol) “we are weird” as in my current state I don’t think I can take it as far as I originally wanted to. I’ve been on antidepressants for quite a few...
We Fall But Our Souls Are Flying: Are perfection... →
Today is nothing special. All things considered, this blog is nothing special; it’s simply my honest views on my life, the world around me, and a laughable attempt to make sense of it all. Still, I appreciate you reading. I’m nothing special either, to be perfectly honest - just your average… That bit about perfection is similar to a part of my nihilistic (lack of a) belief system. A...
These were the last three pieces I made my senior year in high school. I was inspired by Ralph Steadman and Stanley Donwood. From this is where I started this “new style” thing I’ve been talking about, I just haven’t been able to start drawing that much since then. Wow that second one feels so lame now.
this doesn’t look anything like her but i think it looks cool. i want to start a series like this and my profile pic using photos of friends.
It may be love at first sound, but due to a cruel twist of fate I catch the beat at an inopportune time leaving me unable to make a note of the artist or song name for future reference. Or it may be a slow realization of love after realizing a beat I heard while checking out an obscure band’s discography has been stuck in my head all week, but in another unfortunate circumstance I have no...
Another sunday concert
Atoms for Peace consists of Thom Yorke, Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco. I love Radiohead and my brother loves the Chili Peppers, what more of a reason does one need to go? Flying Lotus, famous for being featured on Adult Swim commercials, opened the show which was also cool. The show was crowded in a large ballroom but we got to stand in the 5th or 6th row from front, not...
A man with a large red staff
…was walking in chicago on a certain day of a concert that I already posted about. That’s right folks, a lot happened that night heh. This man nodded to me as we crossed in what I thought was a friendly community greeting. I noticed the dead tree he was using to walk and said “nice… stick…” He told me it was a walking staff and hesitated, then asked if I had a...
The devil’s best trick is to persuade you that he doesn’t exist! ~Charles Baudelaire I don’t know what Baudelaire’s original intent with his story was but this quote sure is used to invoke fear by plenty of believers. When believers tell me this I like to let them know that I am fully aware of the possibility and have my eyes open for clues ;) But a scenario just as...
saidtotheuniverse asked: Hi there! Fellow moonie-turned-atheist, artist, and lover of science here. What are the odds?
the meaningless adventures continue!
I got tired of seeing that messed up blurry blob so i reposted this.
Age of Reason: Boy Dies After Choosing Prayer Over... →
A 16-year-old boy in Oregon died of a treatable urinary tract condition after he refused medical help, believing prayer would heal his illness. 30-Second Summary Medical examiner Dr. Clifford Nelson called the death of 16-year-old Neil Beagley on June 17 “an absolute waste of a young life.” He… Oh boy, more cults. Looks like anyone can just up and start their own fanatical cult or...
Really, is that necessary? You can’t wait til the other finishes? Your comment is so much more important that you give yourself authority to ignore what your opponent is saying? That’s how my parents would act/do act. So I learned to argue this way until I interrupted the wrong person and got yelled at in front of everyone. I almost cried (I was like 10) but the important part is I...
Last Friday I spontaneously planned a trip to chicago using public transportation to see a promising show on that Sunday night. I was unlucky in that I couldn’t get a ride to the bus station when I needed it, and collectively I walked over 20 miles for this. However it was well worth it, especially since my credit card for the ticket somehow didn’t go through but the bouncer still let...
Share the Free-Thinkers that have greatly inspired...
freethinkersalon: Please reblog and post your response below. Carl Sagan introduced me to the wonderful world of astronomy and theoretical physics. He was a great teacher because he could break down such new and complex theories such as the hypothetical 4th dimension to the level that a layman can understand. Edward Tarte is an awesome elderly freethinker on youtube. He used to be a catholic...
