Love this. You may have a theme going here: death and decay.

I'll have to give that a try. Lately I've been taking a break from the Net. Trying to get my real world straight and don't have time or energy for any vitural world crap.

Thing is that's more accurate than you'd think.

Right now I'm reading Thinking, fast and slow by Nobel Prize winner in economics Daniel Kahneman. That's what I do to relax. Watch movies with a high body count and low morals. Read books by the most intelligent and respected worldwide body of authors in the world.

Thought of getting a Kindle to load books on and read but bottom line I can't give up on the old hardcopy. Not to be too graphic...oh hell...reading on an electronic device seems so sterile. I get from the library and sales.

Ever read Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451? Title refers to the burning temperature of paper. In a dystopian...love that world...but utopian is based on two words combined...the word for an ideal place...a paradise in the original sense of the term referring to the cooling gardens of the wealthy people's home. I like that better than heaven. Little bit of time to put up my feet and relax. Eternity? God, what Hell that would be. I prefer to live while I'm alive and die when I die.

OK, in this future firemen did not come to your house to put out fires but to set fires. They were Book Burners. One of the most calmly terrifying books I have ever read.

Now we are going through a massive book burning...or book not burning...

Someone is deciding what should or should not be transfered to digital format. In twenty years, if it isn't in The Cloud...is it me or do you get a chill when someone uses that term...after all, according to the Christ Mythology Jesus is caught up into The Clouds... it doesn't exist. What do we have left? Hardcopy.

Read Simulacra and simulation by Jean Baudrillard...the basis of the Matrix in the movie...

Listening to The Runaway's Blackmail...it's the You wish you were never born Blackmail...cautionary tale of a man who 'molests' an underage girl only to have her turn the tables on him by blackmailing him with the truth.

Early Seventies...had more fun back then when there were still people around who you could embarrass. We have become a world without shame....

...cool.
