1am count up

Remember the boys in school who would give you a back rub that would turn into serious massage and when you seemed to be really relaxing they tried to transition into something - else? Someone reminded me of that whole strategy today. How could I forget.

"How can our love succeed, a miracle is what we need. And so I appeal to yo-o-o-ou"
-Olivia Newton John

I am going to see the movie Xanadu at a midnight showing this weekend. A time machine taking me back to 1980. I am so psyched.

I went to see "Stardust." A Fairy Tale so cute. There is much more to say on the subject but let us start there.

I have had a few vegan meals this week. Fancy ones at that. Not bad. Not bad. I am surprised to feel very full when done eating. But for some strange reason, I am left feeling very full but craving cheese.

Looked up CK's free will astrology horoscope and ran across this "Sacred Advertisement"

"Charles Darwin said the "survival of the fittest" is a central factor in the process of evolution. What exactly did he mean by that? He makes it clear in his book, The Origin of Species: "It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change."

The quote of a quote is from Rob Brezsny. The bolding is mine, thank you very much.

On my walk home tonight I kept hearing the Beatles song "Blackbird."

"Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arrive."

"Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to be free."

I am waiting for a moment. Sometimes I fear that it came a went without me.
Sometimes I wonder what I will be when it arrives.

I tried that three times. It worked twice. However, the third instance ended so disastrously that I never tried again.


When it comes to great actors ending their career with a terrible film, I don't know who had it worse: Gene Kelly with "Xanadu" or Raul Julia with "Street Fighter".


See it / skip it / DVD it?


I've known some fat vegans... actually, I've only known one, and she was more chubby than fat.


Quite true... at least if you buy into the idea of species-level selection.


The Beatles version or the Sylvester version?

1. You been talking to my BBFK? ;)
2. E.L.O. are one of the best bands that ever existed. Even when they worked with Olivi Neutron Bomb they were good :)
3. I'm just copying Grouch by putting a 3 here and saying something...
4. Stilton. And Steak!
5. Yep, strength and change. You could change to a place where the wave won't overwhelm you and die from the new environment or thrive because you stayed and survived...
6. Was somebody following around you with a Ghetto blaster?
7. OK, I'll be here until you do...
