I also have another strap before I got the new one, which looked quite fetching when I first saw it.

I've been MIA here for awhile, but thought I'd like to share my new guitar. Haven't had one in years and glad I got back into playing. I'm fan of Teles, and this clone plays beautifully. Also got a new strap to go with it too.

A Johnson minds his own business.

He is not a snoopy, self-righteous, trouble-making person.

A Johnson will give help when help is needed.

He will not stand by while someone is drowning or trapped under a burning car.

A Johnson pays his debts and keeps his word.

He minds his own business, but will give help when help is needed and is asked for.

He does not hold out on his confederates or cheat his landlady.

- William S. Burroughs, "The Place of Dead Roads."

Having tired of the philosophy business, Slavoj enters into the prestigious field of anime review. No word yet on whether Evangelion represents pure ideology.

2020 in a nutshell so far.

The power elite is about as incompetent and reckless as Murphy's crew, but with the distinction of weaponizing instability as a form of domination and control.

Here's the infamous Bruce Howard giving a fiery sermon on...truth? Perhaps he's speaking in a language that still needs to be deciphered. You let me know if you can make heads or tails of it.

"Bob" Dobbs has the only pyramid scheme that turns a profit.

Damn, the FB groups for RAW are a tire-fire. Most of the flame wars I see on there are when folks use maybe-logic relativism as a dogmatic cover for dubious politics and bigoted opinions.

For instance, the common hobby horse seems to be piling on leftists as authoritarian, for believing something like speech having consequences. Or that evidence-based science functions too much like religion, is dogmatic, etc.

There also seems to be this carefree weirdness that everyone seemed to be doing in their videos too. Even 'serious' groups like Soundgarden seemed to be on that bandwagon.

Then there's some interesting fashion choices. Bucket hats + JNCOS + skater shoes + monotone stripe shirts seemed to be all the rage back in 96 or something.

And I'm talking about non-grunge music here, like mainstream pop. I think what's most fascinating here is the neo-psychedelic aesthetics that feature in so much in these videos.

Not sure if that was strictly an influence carried over from house, rave or psych revivals that half-way broke into the mainstream again (e.g. shoegaze, Britpop).
