I don't believe in anything at all.
Politicians spew out lies While a dying mother cries If faith means belief Then give me relief From those that tell me How and what to be I’ll live the way i choose even if I get the blues But fuck the preachers those crooked creatures And screw their ideology plagiarized mythology Every cause is lost Unless we can trust One another Like a brother And pledge allegiance To...
In a profession which specialises in hypocrisy, Mr Gingrich’s performance stands...– Newt Gingrich harried Bill Clinton for having sex with an intern 27 years his junior when he was having sex with a staffer 23 years younger than himself. His arrogance, meanwhile, verges on monomania. He once wrote of himself as the “definer of the forces of civilisation”. (via theeconomist)

Pirate Politics on a Sinking Ship
Imagine a ship and subsequently sprung a leak. As the damage was surveyed, it was determined that the leak was small and inconsequential; We’ll fix it when we get to our destination. As the days went on the hole augmented until a steady stream of salt water was flowing into the ship, weighing it down. The captain sat perplexed in his cabin - and decided to take definitive action. First, he...
Vimeo versus Youtube
Vimeo is like Youtube’s smart, classy, educated sibling. Linguistically compared: Youtube: A cat falls from a desk. Vimeo: The feline plummets onto the ground. YouPorn: A pussy is on the desk. But don’t get me wrong - Youtube still has more songs than Vimeo (other than in Germany).
Going to a record store and buying “Wooden Heart” by Listener. This man deserves every penny so he can continue such awesome work. If you haven’t heard of Listener, check out his (or their?) myspace, kick back, and listen. His rough, scratchy, and piercing voice is like a hot bath for your soul, man.

auttyauttyoxenfree: Nothing on it is real. It makes me think, what if we were to just lose energy to power technology? We would be left helpless and weak and everything that we ever did on here would be gone forever. Living on the computer is unhealthy and it scares me to realize that I have spent so much time on… Truth.
SOPA is dead!
The Stop Online Piracy Act has been thrown in the trash! Whoo! This means tumblr will be available tomorrow. Thank God.
Casual Contemplation of Condemnation
Consuming consumers in constant contentment with corruption of corporations that crush communities and cause conflicts corresponding with casualties and carnage causing conditions of complete contempt carrying us to the colossal collapse of civilization to cinders comparable to cigarettes.

I wish there was still some great frontier to explore and settle in. Something untouched by human idiocy, fresh, and new. Oh, if only I could go back in time and settle in the West. I’d have a pretty lady with me, and a dog. I would go hunting for some large animal, and have food for weeks to come. There would be a river nearby to swim in, and plenty of fish. The air would be fresh and the...

Quality manufactured students
I recently started an internship at a manufacturing facility. Doing boring and repetitive tasks all day forces me to take refuge in my mind in order to stay sane. Today I was thinking about public education, and came to realize that students are treated exactly like products in a factory. Think about the graphite in your mechanical pencil. It was once in its true form in the ground,...
Trees fascinate me. I could stare at one for hours. The branches, how they so closely resemble our own circulatory system. I think that you can figure out a great deal of the world’s natural workings simply by researching trees. By the way, trees communicate with one another, and also have wars with each other. Just takes ‘em a while.

Is Civilization A Bad Idea?
thesustainablelife: The ice ages came and the ice ages went. For more than a half-million years Homo sapiens endured the changing climate by adapting. Then, deep in the frozen expanse of the last global big chill, something new happened. We woke up to ourselves in a new way. We became self-conscious, creating art, culture and tools of far greater complexity than anything that had come before....
