All Our Yesterdays

...the episode where Spock goes through the Atavachron and has an entire lifetime, and has to be extricated--double, triple grief...Allan Holdsworth thinks of himself sometimes as Spock.

Check the lyrics: “Through the leaves the sunlight streaming / The leaves of light are shining down on me...” wow.

QE

Nick, quantitative easing just is Keynesianism. (That dare not speak its name.) EVEN the ECB is now a little bit Keynesian. And it's the only reason why we didn't have such a bumpy ride in the US. Because austerity was blunted by longer QE and a (not big enough) stimulus. Poor Europe.

Blackmail

"Either you are a feminist, critical race theorist, postcolonialist.

"Or you talk about nonhumans.

"With us--or against us?"

Germany

“Far be it for us to repeat the mistakes of the past. For the sake of avoiding Keynes for the second time since the 1930s, we are ready for Greece to become overrun by Golden Dawn. We have outsourced fascism this time. So that's okay.”

Rubbing Two Sticks Together

...to create a spark, aka meditating. Haha was just reading Irigaray:

Meditation is relating yourself with yourself, and it is also relating yourself with your world. Through the practice of meditation, you are able to synchronize your world and yourself together. Working with the two eventually produces a spark. It is like rubbing two sticks together or striking a flint against a stone to produce a spark. The spark of light you produce is called compassion.   (Chögyam Trungpa)

Gaze at Nothing

Here it comes ladies and gentlemen. On Tibetan lunar new year no less.

Brass Monkey Weather

One of my favorite English sayings is, and this is true of Houston today:

"It's so cold it'd freeze the balls off a brass monkey."

I give this to you, people of Earth. Use it wisely.

Werner Herzog Inspirational Posters

So negative that they are really quite inspiring! Like the prose of Adorno, the Mother Teresa of Marxism...
