Deaf Ears
« on: September 26, 2010, 05:02:11 am »
Our mental states are codepentent.


America at large is a low-context culture.  You don't need to know a lot about your neighbors to get along with them.


I'm surrounded by people that I am perfectly able to relate with. 


Human interaction is a glutted market.


You live in a world where you don't rely much on human interaction to survive, and social opportunities are everywhere.


It's too easy to feel unimportant.


I have no constructive proposals.

Love this
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Hey thanks!

I feel like it should go more in-depth, or make more precise statements.  But I'm used to expressing myself in essay, so it might just be force of habit.  Trying to keep myself limber, writing-wise.  And there is a lot of despair kicking around in my head right now.  I'm starting to kick back, finally.

To be honest I think in terms of writing, it's bang on complete.

What would serve it well is collaboration with a few others who have the skill and passion to give it some nice visual elements.

Roaring Biscuit and Net spring to mind.

I just visualised this as a kind of illustrated minibook/pamphlet.

Thanks.  That was the kernel that sprang the whole thing.

I can kind of see that.  It would work well in sequential art, maybe.
