Richard Nixon Presents: Alaska / Re: Sermon #1 on 21C Fun
« on: November 18, 2014, 11:42:47 am »
Everyone gets their monkey on in different ways.  On the East coast, they have THE GAY BAR and all the other shit that comes with proper cities.  Here in Tucson, we have "driving badly" and "irresponsible firearms use" and various plants that make you think you live in the RIGHT universe for a while.  Portland, well, nobody's really sure, but it seems to involve art gallery openings and scooter/hockey stick mayhem of the sort that can only be done right by middle-aged single mothers with teenaged kids driving them batshit.

The point is, if we're gonna have Wrongfun™, we all have to do it our own way, if you know what I mean.  And I think you do.

But there are those who feel that "fun" should be regulated and controled, so that only Rightfun™ is obtainable.  These are the forces of NO, of STOP, of CALM YOUR TITS.  They are the people who feel that prohibition is a great idea.  They are the people who post "shock" articles on Facebook and howl weird shit about what should be done to Those People depicted in the articles. 

History is full of these assholes, whether they be Stasi or NSA or just the HOA Rules Nazi down the block.  They are against unregulated FUN, and for everyone settling down and being Good Americans™.

I am against these people, brothers and sisters, and I hope you are too.  I hate them and they hate me and that's how everyone likes it.  If they liked me, or even found me amusing from a distance, I would seriously have to reexamine the way I live my life.  They walk around all day with their disapproval stamped to their ugly, pinched faces, screaming at anyone who will listen (and most of those who won't) that "IT'S NOT FUNNY" and "THIS ISN'T A SUBJECT FOR HUMOR".

Yes it is.  I don't care if they're talking about terrorism, the free market, or whatever social justice zealotry they have shackled themselves with...And don't get me wrong, I'm all about egalitarianism, but I was just informed that "fart rape" is a thing, and it doesn't actually matter if that turned out to be a hoax, because if it IS, it hit too close to the bullseye.  No, as the late and unlamented Good Reverend Roger said, "Everything is funny when it happens to someone else...and it's usually still funny when it happens to YOU."

The fact is, you can judge a society on how much it laughs.  The Germans laugh all day, and nobody ever laughs in North Korea.  You decide.  And here in America, 43% of the population is democratic and 43% is republican, leaving only 14% of us laughing.  So we'd better LAUGH UNTIL OUR GUTS BLEED, or accept the fact that this nation is 86% North Korean.

What's really odd about that is that I remember a time when at least the democrats were laughing.  Not the politicians, of course, but the regular person in the street.  But let me ask you:  When was the last time you heard Joe or Jane Sixpack laugh?  I bet it's been a long time.  In fact, I bet they look at you funny when YOU laugh...Like you'd done something inappropriate.  And maybe you had, but that doesn't mean a laugh is a sign of bad manners or bad taste.

And why is this?  Because our society has lost its nerve.  Because our society is BUTTHURT, because being butthurt is both easier and SAFER.  Nobody gets black-bagged for NOT having a good time.  Nobody arrests people for Angry Townhall Face.  Nobody loses their job for sitting utterly rigid in their cube, staring at their monitor...Or joylessly eating their lunch in the breakroom, talking about SAFE subjects like the football game or how well their kids are fitting into the Jello-mould of society.

Is THAT what you want?  It isn't what I want.  I laughed at The Bomb and I laughed at Al Qaeda and now I laugh at the NSA and the republican senate.  And if rumors are true, I'll LAUGH MY ASS OFF when Sarah Palin puts her name on the presidential ballot in 2016. I laugh at preachers doomsaying on account of Gay marriage, and I laugh hysterically while icebergs the size of New Hampshire fall off of Antarctica.

Yes, I laugh at all of these things, all of these things and more.  I bray spittle and laughter in the faces of those who disapprove of my laughing at awful shit most people won't even bring up, because THAT'S WHAT A YETI DOES.  Leave the glum miseryguts bullshit for the Calvinists.  They LIKE that shit.  Because they're NUTS.

Okay for now,
Dok

 

This! Laughing hysterically. Like a maniac. The more they yell at me, the funnier it gets, the louder I laugh.

So I'm trawling youtube for tunes for my next kayak vid and I came across this interview presentation thing Loved Die Antwoord before I watched it. Now they're my motherfucken religion!

I still think this question isn't hypothetical.

Me too and I haven't slept for days. Is this another aztec camera?  :?

The reality is that all of these groups talking primates are important and should be working together to get better transportation everything for all instead of defending their niche interest.

Planet Earth, neatly summed up.

I think it's safe to say that eventually we'll have a pretty comprehensive grasp of genetics. At that point, sure, wankers will be able to code all manner of nasty ass shit but, by the same token, generating a vaccine will be a much quicker and more straightforward affair. It'll balance out.

Pent: before I respond, what do you mean by closed loop machine?

What I was getting at was there's nothing going on in biology beyond the system itself. "Art" has no fucking place in it. It's hard science and any stuff that isn't hard science will be once there's been more research.

I'm a massive fan of the placebo effect, btw, and I'd love to hear of someone keying into that particular psychological feedback mechanism minus the hoodwinking thing but, until they do, it's a massive unpatched exploit for woo peddlars to fill with whatever artistic bullshit they damn well please. This is disingenuous because the effect of crystals and reiki and fucking - insert gobshite here - is limited to the gullible.

Thought had crossed my mind. Now I'm wondering if everything that I've experienced since is still part of the movie. :eek:

These things resonate with my feeling that health and healing are concepts and activities not entirely within the remit of science, and perhaps they ought not to be, either. Responding to the hidden, unspoken, unspeakable needs of another asking for help has, I feel, an irreducable element of art to it.

The body is a closed-loop biological machine. It differs from a toaster or a pickup truck only in it's complexity and our understanding of it's operations. It is completely describable in scientific terms and, when it's finally described in it's entirety, it will be handed over to engineers and technicians. Art has nothing to do with it, aside from muddying the waters with pseudoscientific gobbledygook.

Richard Nixon Presents: Alaska / Interstellar spoilers requested

So I'm sitting with P3nTw1F3 watching Interstellar at the local cinema last night and it's 15 mins from the end and the movie has been pretty fucking sweet so far and then suddenly it freezes and we're left staring at a frozen image of Anne Hathaway while the staff try in vain to get mission control down south to reboot the projector. Turns out the IP tards don't trust local staff to run their projection systems, just in case they nip back after hours and shoot a telesync for piratebay so the upshot is I'm going to have to nip along to piratebay tonight and download a telesync just so I can find out how the fucking movie ends  :argh!:

In the meantime. Feel free to regail me with outlandish tales of what happens in the final 15 mins.
