It's been a nasty and bleak couple of weeks: lack of money, then lack of food, then lack of sleep...then intense anxiety and dark depression to make all of that seem far worse. Happily , friends of mine saw my situation, and stepped in to apply salve in the form of gifts of money to buy food, large presents of supplies, and dropped-off packages of strong coffee and gift cards to local food stores. So, I went through a dark night of the soul, but was rescued by friends. " Bob " watches over us.
Can you imagine what it's like to not find any joy in your life?
It seems like a rhetorical question almost...
But that's what life IS like for me.
Everything is just so disappointing, sometimes. The rest... Is on my brain, and me.
I do blame others for some of my problems, like abandonment, but I know there are lessons here repeating on a cycle that doesn't end until I learn the meaning of these symbols we all use and few ever understand.
The lesson here is that I need to get a kitty.

2019 Documentary. Currently in circulation at film festivals. Not (yet) available for purchase or streaming, but "soon." Until "soon," keep track of the film here...
"The Los Angeles-based production company Hivemind (The Expanse, The Witcher) announced it will produce a television series based on Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea's groundbreaking sci-fi novels The Illuminatus! Trilogy, which is responsible for introducing the concept of the Illuminati. Writer/director Brian Taylor and European production company Kallisti will also be involved in adapting the trilogy for the first time since it was published in 1975."
I bought Media Barrages 10 & 5 on CD the other day and was waiting for them to arrive, and when they did they not only had more "Bob" stickers with them (one in color!) but a very nice note from Rev. Stang apologizing for the delay 'cause he had to burn new copies. He is truly a Yeti among Yetis. Thank you again, Sacred Scribe!
Someone was talking about getting a membership and away passes for their cat. So I looked through the pages from last year and found no pet clause (yet). Until I find it, I going ahead and taking advantage of the 2-for-1 sale. Money is going to be worthless soon. Even if I overdid it with the cat thing, the packet will be the new currency in the future. The time is now! The end is near!
Arguing with Verizon over renewing my FiOS service. They no longer offer service at the speed of my old plan. I literally have to pay more for faster service that I don't really need or cut speed to 1/2 of my current plan. To add to the stupidity, it will actually cost me more per month to remove the FiOS TV service that I don't even use.
I'm getting more radicalized by the day. Nationalize the telcos and guillotine their CEOs/Boards!
If you read this, by the powers vested in me by the 3rd Reformed Church of Eris, I herefore ordain YOU as a genuine and lifelong -=POPE=- of our Holy Lady of Discord.
Go forth, treat each other right, since you are all a -=POPE=- anyway, and preach the Gospel of Eris, the only true divinity (except for J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs, but that is a story for some other time).
23 minutes of the sheerest bulldada. Your ears may get up and walk out on you.
Particularly "Sub" SubGenius, Discordian, Zen Buddhist with Wiccan sympathies and all-around normal-weird guy
