…One Year Later Yikes! How the time flew since my last post – Ridiculous. It’s even more ridiculous how the time has passed since the internet grew from a sparce network of Bulletin Board Systems to the Wide World Web and now to the ‘Internet of Things’ (whatever the tech that means). Meanwhile, I’ve been traveling all around this growing mountian of technology we call the Internet… spending weary years in awe and addiction to the vast wealth of information it makes readily available to feed upon. Not wanting to miss a thing, I’ve wandered up ever so slowly in my climb to experience every detail along the way – a wildflower picker – stopping to enjoy every detail and even exploring the lunatic fridge of our www during my slow accent to my destiny as a content producer. Soon, this traveler of information and human expression will take his turn in sharing myself with you again and finally make good on my promises to keep this site updated regularly. The thing is, I actually have a ton of stuff to publish! Seriously, authentic blog post goodness is heading your way once I get my head out of the cloud server and take the time to manage regular quality updates. I’m constantly writing stuff actually, but unfortunately I usually get interrupted in the heat of inspiration and have to save it to a draft and forget about it. …But those drafts are not to be forgotten. They will see the Continue Reading →

If you can’t come up with a good enough idea to stay the course, then don’t bother!! Most of these new ‘tech’ ventures would do good to pivot towards shutting down before they ever even launch, instead of wasting everyones’ time and money on playing start-up games. [Edit: This brief, hopefully sobering, post is a reactionary statement to all the ridiculous retoric (‘advice’) and speculation constantly going on about tech startups and was further prevoked by my reading of the following ‘duh’ article, http://blogs.wsj.com/accelerators/2013/01/03/prove-it-pivot-or-shut-it-down/]

Did you know March was once widely accepted as the first month of the year? Even today it still marks the beginning of the New Year in many cultures and religions. It originated in the Roman Calendar Year where it was named after the presumed ‘god of war’ for whom the planet Mars was also named after. Scholars debate whether January became recognized as the first month in the Roman calendar under King Numa Pompilius circa 713 BC or later under the Decemvirs around 450 BC. Russia maintained March as the 1st month of the year until the end of the 15th century. Great Britain and it’s colonies continued to use March 25 to mark the beginning of the New Year until 1752 when they adopted the Gregorian calendar.

Ethernet, which is the collective technologies of medium used to transmit data at the physical layer of our beloved Internet, derived its name from a concept held popular among physicist during the late 19th century – Luminiferous aether. It has been said that the very idea of luminiferous aether, the invisible medium by which all light travels through, has been cut out of the scientific communities’ acceptace by “Occam’s razor”. However, reasoning along the lines of that razor means the pathetic acceptance of whatever seems rational instead of actually coming to know truth. This is how the theory of helio-centricity was introduced by Copernicus and devilishly hoisted upon the minds of men, and why it still remains a persistant detractor from the real truth of geo-centricity. I heartily laugh at all this while the sun orbits me through light-bearing aether – for a little razor is no match for my mighty sword.

‘Tis so much joy! ‘Tis so much joy! If I should fail, what poverty! And yet, as poor as I, Have ventured all upon a throw! Have gained! Yes! Hesitated so – This side the Victory! Life is but Life! And Death, but Death! Bliss is but Bliss, and Breath but Breath! And if indeed I fail, At least, to know the worst, is sweet! Defeat means nothing but Defeat, No drearier, can befall! And if I gain! Oh Gun at Sea! Oh Bells, that in the Steeples be! At first, repeat it slow! For Heaven is a different thing, Conjectured, and waked sudden in – And might extinguish me! – Emily Dickinson (1860)

summer groove / time to move / joyful spectacle / forever festival / righteous removal of religious rules / the enemies of God are proven fools / caravan of camels come bringing jewels / transferring wealth from workers of iniquity / to sons and daughters like you and me / empowering the princes to set the captives free forever festival / joyful spectacle / enter like a child / it’s time to go wild cause the meaning of the Good News to be understood / like a sanctified modern-day Robin Hood / sharing your bread with the widows and poor / shining bright His light from door to door

By water or fire, you’ll not quench love’s desire Foe, flood, or flame, there’s protection in His name As they say, “Come what may…” For me, Jesus is the only way “Hell or high water”, I’ll be safe in the arms of Love As sure as His hope flies in “on the wings of a dove” I shall not be afraid nor offended, Even at the cost of my life being prematurely ended. For “To live is Christ, to die is gain” His rainbow reminds us after the rain Of promises we have in His beautiful name Yesterday, Today, and Forever the same Jesus’ word will surely remain Let perfect love be perfected in me, till Jesus is all I see. I’m in it for love; my love is Jesus.

i lay there thinking about her while i waited for sleep to come. then suddenly a sorta ‘pop’ happened in my head and everything became completly still and quiet as if i was asleep while awake in an unconscience conscienceness. 7 seconds later that stillness was interupted with a sound like a shot-gun bast heard across the field of my mind. I questioned it, but it was so mysterious that no thoughts could form with which to explain what was going on. i felt at peace though and quickly thereafter fell into a deep sleep …ahemm… for 20 minutes… till some rough sounding noise just outside my room woke me up and i was wide awake! i bothered myself as to whether i should get up and investigate who might be breaking into my house or if i should just say a prayer and go back to sleep. by the time i said a prayer and marveled at how wide awake i was, i had convinced myself it would also be prudent to at least get up to check what that distressing noise was all about. finding nothing readily obvious to blame, i decided to forget about it, grab a bowel of cereal, and go get some work done at the computer. then i thought about her again. i thought about writing to her, but had nothing to say. there are no words for her right now. instead i wrote what could be written – this quirky glimpse into a Continue Reading →
