I’ve noticed a time at the bottom of each of the posts that I’ve made here at WordPress. No idea what they are, but I have a guess. That guess is…a timer.
If that’s the case, let’s do what I personally would consider “a normal post” or “normal writing of mine”, let’s do it here at WordPress, and let’s see what the result is.
LET’S FUCKIN’ RAWK DIS HIZZAY!!!
^The Prodigy – Climbatize^
Just had a thought about….teamwork. Sharing. Support. It got me to thinking about the concepts of rising and lowering. Shining and dimming. As I pondered a bit more, it got me to thinking about identity. Associations. Associating. Goals.
Within the framework of a group, there will be many things both common and uncommon. The type and types of contrast necessary to make distinction(s). But I guess where all of this thinking made my mind wander to was leadership and success. Albeit, these thoughts of success came down to differences in opinion on what success is, to whom, and how these conclusions are arrived at.
If someone distinguishes themselves, and this someone “ascends” to positions that are categorized as being “above”, where does that leave the rest of the group? Meaning, if one is shining…are the others…dimming?
Q: According to whom?
A: ¿?¿ + ó¿ó + ?¿? = ¿|?
So yeah…I’m thinking about context(s), perspective(s), associating, relating and…….GRAVITY!!!
^AWOLNATION – Run (Audio)^
Gravitating might be a more appropriate word with respect to human groups and grouping, but I personally still believe that Newtonian law(s) are equally applicable to life and lifeforms, and that removing life from Newton’s work is likely why we fail. We are made up of the same shit that surrounds us…so…yeah…I don’t get it. (separation) That said, what I really got to pondering, is getting lost within a group, and perhaps some of the factors that can cause us to get lost.
EX: Tom is knowledgeable about everything, but not real good at anything. However, Tom is great with people, and can relate to just about anyone, with a few exceptions of course. Tom has his own ambitions and goals, and is both driven and hardworking. Tom eventually starts to climb his way through the ranks, much to “the pros'” and “the professionals'” chagrin, and before long, Tom appears to be living on Easy Street.
Tom buys a house, gets a new car, gets married, has some kids, wears nicer clothes, etc..
Q: Who likes Tom?
Only you can answer this.
^twenty one pilots: Stressed Out [OFFICIAL VIDEO]^
Our good friend Tom. The guy who used to always be there for everyone…has abandoned us. He’s forgotten what it is like to be on the front lines. Forgotten what it is like to have everyone chewing on your ass to get shit done. Forgotten what it is like to be…abandoned. I mean…we hardly even see the guy anymore. What in the FUCK is he doing all the time? I only see him when he’s arriving for work, or leaving for work.
WHERE IN THE HELL DID TOM GO?!?!?!?!?
Meanwhile…back on Earth…
Cade is busy pondering this current WhateverInTheFuckItIs. And he would like to discuss the commonality of difference(s) via sameness(es).
What does that mean? Welp, if Tom always had dreams of buying his own house, maybe a new car, a family, and job that would provide all those things…
Q: Where did Tom go wrong?
A: I bet you’ve got a list. And if you didn’t then, you do now.
Such is the nature of relationships? Is that a premise written in stone? Or is that something that we ourselves make up as we go.
OK…so we’ve established that Tom is a good guy gone bad.
Q1: How is your relationship with your co-workers now?
Q2: How was your relationship with your co-workers prior to Tom turning into an asshole?
Poor ol’ Tom. He’s on The Flight of Icarus…and doesn’t even know it.
Meh. He’ll get an education…and soon.
^The Prodigy, Skylined, 2012^
Heading back to my original thought(s), will get me back to my original thought, and that is commonality. Shared likes + Shared dislikes = Commonality?
I dunno, that seems more like a choice for you to make. But where I kinda arrived at, is your assumption that during your own personal time of “Getting To Know Tom”, it just took you a while to find out what a prick Tom really was. He seemed OK. But then, he revealed his true nature and true colors. A self-serving dickhead just like the rest of em’.
Q: What were your personal goals when Tom first appeared in your life?
A: Or have you long since given up on them?
You sure as shit appear to have given up on Tom…so…go figure. You may as well give up on everything else while you’re at it. Which reminds me, while you are in a giving mood…are you gonna eat that? 😛
^Of Monsters and Men – King And Lionheart (Official Video)^
I just got sidetracked by some fuck named Sir Henry Neville.
Got tread lightly here. Not that I’m not already neck-deep in the swamp or anything. But to be fair, I choose to be here/remain here…so…yeah. Something about alligators.
Which…that brings up a pretty good question for you “swamp drainer” types…
Q: What did The Swamp ever do to you?
A: Attract Alligators?
Welp…what attracted you? Lemme guess…The Swamp?
I guess that makes you an alligator too. Don’t it?
Me? I’m just passin’ thru. I’m more The Gingerbread Man. I guess I should be kinda…foxy…in these hostile territories…eh?
Anyway…”The House of Neville” appears to be big across yon pond.
Not sure what this…ern…diversion has to do with anything, but I have a pretty goddamn good idea.
Can’t blame people for looking for treasure. But, in our day and age, can you imagine the throbbing clusterfuck that would result in actually finding some treasure? I mean like, treasury treasure. I’ve already found treasure in my own personal life. Don’t have it anymore, but yeah…I kinda do.
Dunno if I’m unique in this regard, but if I wasn’t off-course, I wouldn’t know where I was. Wouldn’t know where I am going.
^The Cocteau Twins-Amelia (w/ Lyrics)^
Where was I? OH YEAH!!! Off course.
Imma go eat something real quick first.
^The Prodigy – Speedway HD 720p^
I guess now that I’ve used WordPress a bit more like I personally would use it, I can see why WordPress might have a shade more appeal to certain sets of users. The interface is a shade more intuitive once you start to actually use the fucking thing. But then, it gets a shade…restrictive. Almost like…the entire time you use it…someone is watching your goofy ass. Every single thing is monitored. Everything you do is reviewed and acted upon in the right fucking NOW!!!
Instead of getting more comfortable with the edit window/editor, I find myself cringing a bit with every keystroke. Like…at any moment, the next keystroke could spell dezaster!!!
lolz…get it? Spell…dezaster?
Anyway, I find myself feeling more constricted. Like my shoulders are tensing and I cringe at every thought of pressing a key. I mean…I’ve no idea what in the fuck each keypress is going to do. Not to mention, that getting to the end of the editor window is irritating as FUCK when the goddamn edit box contents doesn’t scroll when you reach the end of the page. What’s up with that? Must be a browser/service discrepancy or something. I’m digrestlessing here.
Yesterday, when simultaneously writing those posts with RooBeeDoo, I somehow got into some fucking loop where every time I would hit the delete key, or highlight an object and then hit the backspace key, WordPress would kick me out of the editor window and take me back to the user area or whatever it’s called. This happened several times as I tried to figure out why WordPress was not adding images or videos to lines where I had centered the cursor/text, and then pasted in the text of a URL. I then discovered that…yeah…WordPress was adding the damn things…they just wouldn’t show up until you closed the edit window, then reopened the post for editing.
Anyway, shit is going to get wonky as new features are added and/or old ones dropped. I can accept that. But then again, I’m a software developer who has quite a bit of experience on both sides of the fence. “End-users” are kinda like The Emperor in Star Wars. They aren’t nearly as forgiving as Darth Vader is.
^The Prodigy – The Heat (The Energy) HD 720p^
I also kinda don’t like some of the continuity issues. Like…
If I center some text…
…and then hit a hard return, the editor automatically resets the formatting to the default.
This kind of automation kinda makes sense, but not really. It certainly doesn’t make sense from an authorship point, when I am both writing and editing my writing at the same time.
Pro-Tip: Not all authors follow convention. Not all authors are hooked on standards.
- Why can I not highlight a portion of and/or the entire contents of the edit window?
- Why do you require me to go to the “HTML” portion of the edit window, and copy blocks from there?
- What’s your beef with highlighting an embedded video? You fucks are the ones that is parsing every single URL to see if it’s embeddable.
- Should I have worded the previous as “to see if it can be embedded?
- If you are trying to sell me on the idea that I should switch from Blogger to WordPress, you may want to keep “sell” in mind considering your pricing matrix.
- Starving artists…are…well…starving.
I want this shit to be readable, but I also want some flexibility to relate to the reader what I am thinking. I deal in vaguery quite a bit since much of what I talk about is either abstract and/or an abstraction. Existential kinds of shit that leans heavily into ethics. This means I must avoid morality, legality, governmental and anything religious in nature. This further means that I’m always hip-fucking-deep in that bullshit.
But why wouldn’t I be?
It’s everywhere. Unavoidable. Not to mention that anywhere these things are not, is exactly where they want to be.
Under your skin. In it. Around it. Omipresent. Omniscient.
This get’s us back to…Tom. (and you)
^The Prodigy – Full Throttle HD 720p^
Just because everything is “this” to you, and may even sometimes appear to be “this” with others, doesn’t make it so. Not everyone is so narrow and single minded as you. 😉
But my thought is, that if you and a certain group appear to have common purpose, are you really being fair as to…erm…
…your secret agenda(s)?
Yeah. That stuff that is for you, you, you, and only…you. Like say…the position that Tom has wound up in. You wanted it, he got it. Where does that leave Tom?
You wanted Tom’s position then, and you want Tom’s position now. But you’ll never tell Tom that…will you? Anyway, I just wonder what consideration you’ve given to Tom and his position. If the roles had been reversed, would you be floating around in the stratosphere looking down upon all the people cussing you for being the elevated money-grubbing power-hungry shitbag that you are? Or would you be spending time milling around with the riff-raff and staying current with your peeps. Not to mention, what does this not only say about you and how you feel about your current station in life, but also how you feel about your co-workers. Your “more-equals”. Are they shitbags too?
Just thinking, that even tho we may have commonalities and/or common goals, that doesn’t make the totality of our being(s) the same. “It’s all about this” or “it’s all about that” completely ignores time(s) and change(s).
Sounds to me like “it’s all about determining what it’s all about, and then, going out and proving that you personally know what it’s all about, and others should know what it’s all about as well.”
That’s quite the paradigm.
^The Prodigy Babys Got A Temper^
I’ve primarily been thinking about just and only a couple of people while writing this, and one in particular. Supposedly, they have put forth a theory, the redux being, “it’s all about sex.”
Every paradox is going to have a loop. Hence, it can’t be all about sex, because prior to, it was all about finding out what it’s all about. Even if you know “what ‘it’s’ all about”, you still gotta stop to start again. But that’s just my opinion.
That said, this is likely why the concept of “The Alpha and Omega” makes sense to me personally. A beginning and end that simultaneously co-exist within something else entirely.
- Find the begging, and you simultaneously find the end.
- Find the end, and you simultaneously find the beginning.
- All of those co-exist in the same space and spaces.
But that raises the question…
Q: What about the middle?
A: Welcome to it.
I dunno. We walk right though beginnings and endings every moment of our life, and don’t give it a second thought. So what and where lies the controversy? Welp, if you are The Creator, seems to me that you’ll be wrestling with the concept of “is and is not” for the entirety of existence. You can add whatever name you want there in place of “The Creator”, but to me, the concept of “The Creator” is going to be dynamic.
EX: A door-to door salesman comes to your door. What did this person have for breakfast this morning? What did YOU have for breakfast this morning?
Who know what, and when. I mean, you wanted to talk about more existential types of stuff with a random stranger…right? And before you dismiss that thought out of hand, you might give some thought as to why doctors are so popular. I mean…doctors are strangers…right? But in the case of doctors, you are the stranger seeking out another stranger for something. Not unlike the door-to-door salesman that just appeared out of thin air, interrupting your breakfast trying to sell you something you may or may not need.
I wonder if we need doctors?
Well yeah…not now we don’t need them obviously…but we might.
Good thing they are there, and ready, and waiting…eh?
Must suck to be on a shelf tho.
I wonder if that shelf is…elevated.
Who put that shelf there?
Who put the shit that is resting on the shelf up there in the first place?
^The Prodigy – Jericho^
I just found out…if you type within the edit box of the WordPress editor, and the text wanders off the page at the bottom to where you cannot see it, but you keep on typing anyway? Eventually after a hard-return or two, the page will scroll automatically to where you can see what you are typing again.
That said, I don’t think that most are as comfortable with typing blindly as I am. I only use three fingers and both thumbs to type, but I still can type pretty fucking fast and am quite accurate + very comfortable with the keyboard.
I guess years of working on and with computers will do that to a fella.
^The Prodigy – Mindfields HD 720p^
You aren’t Tom, and Tom isn’t you.
That position you want, and the position you occupy, are what they are.
Tom is where he is, you are where you are.
You are what you were, and so is Tom.
Cept not so much.
We are where we are.
Kindof an…”aggregate thing” I’m guessing.
You know…that “negligible” shit.
Dunno what anyone else thinks, but I think you kinda…rock.

Maybe something will help you along your particular path.
