nola post office [Jan. 16th, 2007|11:06 pm]

I experienced the height of New Orleans inefficiency today at my local United States post office. There was a line of roughly twenty people with a single counter open. There were three employees behind the counter and who do they choose to run the single register? The deaf woman. Shortly after entering the line the customer at the counter and the deaf cashier hit a snag causing the cashier to exclaim and attempt to get the other two employees to help. They ignored her and continued to argue over the specifics of why another customer was wrong and the hoops he would be required to jump through.

And people wonder why New Orleans is having some many problems getting back on its feet.

I was watching the shadows of my window grilles play along the walls and ceilings thinking about how beautiful moments can be. Multiple sources of light cause the repetition of shadows... the grilles and the sources maybe not so nice alone but they combine to create a night time movie. I tried to film it with a digital camera but only darkness.

I have been spending some of my time thinking of how life is a personal movie. It is always from your point of view and everyone is just how you see them. You rarely come across as who you project. Everyone sees the flaws that you try to cover up. Some people look to an outside source to define themselves. I am a hippie. I am a republican. A catholic. A businessman. etc. Are you truly just a businessman... isn't that simply an easy way to deal with life? I can follow this set (imaginary) program and if I stay in between the lines 100% of the way I will achieve happiness. Happiness is here and now and not tomorrow or yesterday (I know I'm reiterating old posts.) Do we become accustom to our way of perceiving ourselves? I don't think it is really any different than how we grow accustom to viewing others a certain way and then accuse them of changing. Maybe they have "changed" but perhaps you were not watching so closely. Any thoughts?

Abrupt change of subject.... I just finished the pbs warhol documentary. It was way over the top in exclaiming warhol was the greatest artist ever or at least in this century. Along with a very dramatic soundtrack at times which became even more obnoxious when they would run the dramatic song for lengthy periods of time. Besides all that it is worth seeing... particularly the old footage of warhol.

[music |funking it up with wwoz]

buckeyes day in columbus. high street is rampant with ohio state fans - I consider the traffic caused by the buckeyes a national security threat.

It was a cold saturday. Milo was quite and removed from the excitement of "the game". I went on the roof this afternoon and paced. I felt removed from the neighborhood around me. a surveyor from the castle tower

we are always on the verge of no return [Sep. 13th, 2006|11:22 pm]

I believe I have come to a conclusion of sorts as to why the republican and religious right irritate me to such an extreme... it is the fact that things are ever evolving. Not in just the biological stand point but also in all contexts of human life. One of the keys to what makes humans unique is the ability to share thoughts and ideas and our ability to build upon our own thoughts and others. All things that we create and spend our time thinking about evolve since that knowledge is passed on. Therefore, the idea that we should go back to old "values" or thoughts is ridiculous since there is no going back. Even your idea of what is the old values is false because you are looking at it from a modern stand point. You have seen the progress of humanity and have knowledge of the modern world therefore you can only assume what it was like to be in the time of your old values and any attempt at following these will be from a modern recreation inherently not true to what actually existed. Therefore the thought that we could possibly return to any old values is ridiculous.... it goes against human nature and is impossible. One can certainly learn from mistakes and attempt not to repeat them but there is no returning.
