“After/Midnight”

 “...we gonna let it all hangout”

 

there’s so much about me, that’s yet to be discovered. we race against the years to uncover what lies within our innermost self. my best version of myself remains in constant construction.

“...Raging Bull” 

 

If we measure the depth of our relationships by the breadth of our conversations, just imagine a casual visit with Donald Trump😳 Having to actually provide supporting details to the bullshit he spews at the ignorance of the infuriated. It’s a sad state of affairs whenever the truth about anything becomes optional to the audience being addressed. We hold no truths to be self evident as we continually allow integrity and honor to slide from the face of morality and prop up ideological agendas verses the actual best interests of society. Everything associated with freedom is washed aside by the battle for tribal supremacy. God and human rights are thrown around as though they were something objectively tangible.

  “...Hatch Chilies” 

 

I watch for signs at the margins of where cultures fail to convey. Cross that against the ranges of tendencies, and you come to realize where we stand. Consciousness is a tangled mutha fucker of a burden on our energy budget. Life is about smoothing out the hard shit in favor of leisure. Constantly comparing ourselves to anything other than a better version of our current self is extremely debilitating to the joy of a moment.

   “...Albert Cuyp Market”

 

im not quite sure what’s supporting this piece of nonsense going on up in here. I keep getting drug aside without much resistance. maybe I’m soaking in enough from the streams of cognitive consumption I feed from, that expelling my perspective just isn’t happening. the world struggles to find this notion of equality, yet biologically it’s not available in the fundamental form necessary to sooth the social divide culture has implanted in our behavior. what we’re really searching for is equality in consciousness, where all thoughts are measured by the same standards. there again, emotionally all impulses matter to the individual as though they carried the same weight upon everyone. unfortunately, that weight is measured by the specificity of the individuals unique circumstances. the dialogue for equality comes from the dispossessed or misunderstood, not from the willingness of the lucky to concede their power. too often we assess ourselves by comparing what we accept about ourselves with the perspective of what we assume about those we long to assimilate with. there’s something far more profound bubbling up behind all of this notion I have. I’ll give it a few more days to clarify it’s purpose, so the message is cleaner and precise...

"Political/Considerations"

I pondered the title for today's piece, with all of the things going on drawing my scrutiny. Urban Meyer made the list with his nepotistic handling of his assistant coaches domestic violence accusations by his estranged wife dating back to 2009.

Obviously, winning football games is the top priority in the culture of Ohio State. There’s no legitimate argument to defend the behavior exhibited by this institution in the face of what we assume as the truth of all this. No one is denying the events leading up to this day of judgment. None of the details are being disputed or portrayed as misrepresented. In my eyes, it’s a case of values and poor judgment rewarded with essentially a slap on the wrist in the face of a nation wide scandal. 

Jeff Sessions is the other person smelling of disgrace this day. Who takes the criticism of their boss like he does? Come to find out the president doesn’t have to obey the actual laws. Lincoln threatened to jail the Supreme Court Chief Justice, when informed his suspension of habeas corpus was unconstitutional. Trump dogs the fuck out of these people, and they just take it.

 Sessions is so delusional with rampant ideology, he fails to identify his role in supporting progress. He wants to hold humanity to this Johnson era conservatism at all costs, while wiggling around the legal controversy pushed up by the very administration, that nominated him for his current position. 

Asia Argento seems to have a double standard for her role in the #metoo movement. I don’t know what she did or didn’t do, and the personal life of those who pretend to be other people, so that their audience can numb the fuck out of their own actual lives is a waste of my attention. What I find perplexing is the volume of attention this situation has garnered.

The media takes the position of delivering the truth in support of free speech, so that the populous can hold the authority accountable with their vote, derived from this transparency of understanding. Trump has attacked this relationship with accusations of fake agenda based content from the mainstream providers of news. The expansion of the internet has diluted the capacity of any single source of content for providing in depth factual beneficial information with attention grabbing headlines absent of breadth and scope.

“Frivolous/Echoes”

"Piled High..."

Matt Lauer was fired away from a $20 million contract, yet there was zero chances of him utilizing all that money to deliver a measurable benefit to humanity. His colleague's were heartbroken over the discovery of his extensive bad behaviors. I wonder if they will pony up some of their exorbitant salaries to offset his misfortune? They don't appear grief stricken this morning, but they are actors of sorts.

My point in all of this is the sheer amount of misplaced resources are used to support an outlet for emotional escapes. Entertainment serves as an alternative to our own individual realities, in that it allows time and space to disengage from consciously surveying the burdens of life. Path of least existence as it were, in that embracing imaginary circumstances, feels so much less anxious than actual circumstances. So much so, the entertainment/sports industry accounts for somewhere in the $3 trillion range on an annual basis. Now imagine a social construct where that capital was utilized to help with social decay. Compound that with the fact American's spend more money than that annually on gambling😳

Priorities are ranked by analyzing necessity compared to discretionary in terms of importance. Now ask just about anyone what their personal priorities are, and the time they spend engaging their entertainment needs are seldom at the top of the list. Vital to frivolous are other words to describe this delineation of priorities. The egocentric power being wielded by these men over their victims is derived from the financial resources being poured into this social vacuum. For decades, the misbehaving was believed to be quarantined to spoiled athletes and shady politicians, Is it so surprising that wherever a human ego is falsely inflated, that power corrupts the morality of its owner?

"Value system distortion by financial influences...not by any perception of right or wrong"ommunity values rise from the members of that community. Knowing the members of your community helps bind those standards. Holding each other accountable through third party entities like government is the modern day methodology. Keeping a perspective on this hierarchy architecture is the responsibility of the individuals, not the elected third party. This is the fracture in this system...
