Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Contrivication

Hmm. What to gripe about today? Its an important consideration, in fact its usually the first thing I think about when I wake up… after I’ve finished adjusting myself and the teepee I’ve pitched I mean (lest I injure someone, which could include myself)… but lets say soon thereafter my mind turns to complaining.

Today we’ll go with Barack Obama and Anthony Bourdain acting like bro’s with beers. Asian background peeps told to act casual.

Ha ha.

I really like Anthony Bourdain… and Barack Obama… well… I mean he’s probably okay. Although I find him less genuine than Bourdain. I would have preferred eight years of Bourdain lets put it that way. Also watching Anthony eating strange street food off a surface of dubious hygienic quality was one of my guilty pleasures. I miss him in a very similar way I miss Christopher Hitchens, albeit for different reasons. Although I think they were both quite epicurean. Which probably says a lot about the sort of people I like.

Still, I really hate contrived stuff.

 

Postscript. I don’t think contrivication is a real word. But maybe it should be.

    I agree. I like real people, not fake. It’s just a thing I have.

    I agree about Bourdain. No competition, imho.
    And thanks for the chuckle. Ugh, humans.

        As in Rob? He might have to go by Cummings

        Rob Zombie might have a better chance against DT than some of these other… eh… I want to losers… but that might be a tad harsh. I just don’t see a decent challenger among the current batch.

        It is a clown car. I’ll tune in on election night. I don’t think the challenger is in the race yet.

        Clown car is a pretty good analogy actually. I may steal that.

        It does. You should charge.

        I do. You owe me $7000

        Some might deem that extortionary… but then again you have gone to a lot of effort thus far. You seem worth it

        Thanks. I always wanted to be worth $7k.

        As long as you’re not low balling yourself. If you’re actually worth more I mean.
