I’m reading: Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”. I heard that Alinsky, a community organizer and inspiration to Barrack Obama, was popular amongst the tea baggers, and his writings helped motivate the town hall revolts during 2010. Graying right-wing Ayn Randians forced to turn to a radical leftist to elect conspiracy theorists to cut their Medicare? You can’t make this shit up. Saw his book at B&N and had to grab. In another lifetime when my engagement with the human species is less like Golum’s I may be able to put Alinsky’s writings to use.
Good news! The Middle East continues it’s transformation into a Roland Emmerich movie. Virginity tests in Egypt, disappeared journalists in Pakistan, you and I still sending billions of taxÂ dollars to the militaries of both these nations. Thank you NPR! You make waking up hell.
The kids are all bopping to “Circle”
These days: I am meditating to the gong sound that summons the Cenobites in “Hellraiser”. If I disappear suddenly will one of you please sprinkle some blood onto my attic floorboards so that I can return as a screaming skeleton? Gratzi.
