Hey cousin LHX!  Long time no see.  You should know that even all this time later, your piece Toxicity still rings some bells with me--anything could be toxic in the right amount! Story of my life :P

Anyway -- yeah, it's funny to see some of our old ideas unfolding apart from us. I was reflecting on the Adam Weishaupt Society the other day.. we were playing at making fake news for the sake of fake news. We saw how easy it was, you just have to base articles on the principle of attention instead of information. Years later, that seems not so much like just a fun game, but something fundamentally wrong with the media engine, and it would be uncouth to accelerate it further.



yoooooooo what up Cramulus!!!

great to see your keystrokes

Maybe I give us too much credit, but I feel like we were prepping for it, and now we're somewhat inoculated to the bullshit media absurdity being thrown around.

yes - i agree - almost reminds me a bit of that movie with Rowdy Roddy Piper when he started seeing shit that other people didnt see -

thinking about this more, i reckon a big reason for the prevalence of this being visible now has entirely to do with the Internet and the phenomenon of just being inundated with information -

the elusive relationship between 'language' and 'things that actually happen' is a surprisingly large sandbox to play in / get lost in -

seems to be the sandbox that drove Wittgenstein crazy ("if there is no elephant in the room, then what elephant am i talking about?!")
same sandbox that Derrida seems to have tried to coax people into to drive them crazy (and seems to have built his entire career off of)

its hard to see 'news' as anything other than some sort of variety show featuring people reporting things that may or may not have happened in a serious tone of voice

starting to get the feeling that maybe its time to get to work formulating a garbage clean-up strategy for when the party is over -

spiritually still here, but physically pressing a lot of buttons on other computer systems -

Peace Fams -

Was digging thru the digital crates when I stumbled across this gem:

Occurred to me that back in the day, we had a lot of cool insights like this floating around and giving insight to the innate flaws and flexibilities of language -

Something that I recollect waxing philosophically and having a blast with y'all about over the years -

We made our own garbage headlines and spread them out - lots of yuks to be had -

Thing now is: kinda get the feeling that this is getting to be more prevalent in media in general, perhaps from the 'more fun than you really wanted' angle -

I know there is a high level of general media skepticism in these parts (this may come across as preaching to the choir), but it feels more and more like most news outlets (at least of the political inclination) are just mailing it in these days -

Not to get all nostalgic about the past, but I feel like at least they tried to make the scandals and conspiracies seem legitimate back in the day -

Maybe it's an artifact of having the Internet around this long -

Who knows -

Maybe what I'm feeling is that fake news is more fun when it's not blatantly coming from the actual news -

Maybe
Maybe
Maybe

(PS - I dont know how to input images in a forum post anymore - bear with me if that dont work)

(PS pt II - yea - I cant figure it out - there is a link instead)

haha

cool -

there are about 4 or 5 of them that were originally posted in this forum in some iteration, so if anybody has a brain that stretches back to 6 year old forum posts, you might recognize something -

also: i have already received a dose of negative feedback from folks that weren't feelin them, so don't be hesitant to let me know if they suck -

Peace -

Peace Fams -

Back in the day (like '05 or '06) between here and one of the other Discordian boards that I think doesn't exist anymore, I had crafted some stories of a particular style that was very much informed by a lot of the stuff that y'all had put on my mind -

Over time I have aggregated a bunch of these stories and recently have found time to put them all together.

Only issue is, I don't know if they are shit or not, and beyond that, I don't know what to do with them beyond let them exist.

Writing is not my profession by any stretch, but I wouldn't mind playing around with ways to put these out for people to check -

They can be found here: http://reale.ca/true-stories-of-things-that-happened/

I am hoping that people at least find them to some degree interesting or entertaining and ultimately not a waste of time -

Please let me know if you have any thoughts / feedback / suggestions -

Any insights are monumentally appreciated x 1000000000000000

Peace

Been having a scare for the past several days. Huge blood sugar spikes after eating, partnered with thirst and increased urination, along with other things. I tried to get a blood test done this morning, but due to my major needle phobia I couldn't do it. Trying again tomorrow, telling the nurse I need help getting through that. I have to get this checked out. These are the same symptoms my father had at this age, when he contracted type 1 diabetes. Yes, it can after childhood, and I am not in any way at risk for type 2. My parents were planning on coming down in another week, but due to this they've moved it forward and are going to get here this weekend. This is major scary shit for me, as I was telling Phox and my mom over the phone just a while ago and crying. This is like something out of my worst nightmares. I don't usually post these things on here, but I just feel like I need to say something because I'm so afraid of all of this.

In before "F*CK YOU, MY KAI DIED OF DIABETUS".

yo hold it down homie -

keep that positive energy flowing -
