Eating some Chipotle so a few things before getting back to it.
The office mates and I like to go to Catholic Charities across the street and shop on our breaks and we tend to find things for the office in the way of artwork or glassware, and often we find things for each other. Case in point:
This kind of thing has always been fascinating. Not sure why exactly, but the need to understand the way this mindset works has always been something of an obsession for me. I’m sure there’s some buried psychology behind it but I think I prefer to not know what that is. In any event, my friend George posted a fascinating radio interview with the Unabomber discussing his relationship with his brother (who ultimately turned him in) by way of trying to explain the brothers Tsarnaev. As George said, “If you want to hear about how self-absorbed, egomaniacal, and generally out of touch a sociopath can be, have a listen.” And you should. It really is fascinating and — at least for me — therapeutic in understanding the way some people can do the things they do.
Speaking of the Brothers Crazy, the guy they’re trying to turn into his spiritual adviser is basically like — yeah, I knew him. But where he got these ideas had nothing to do with me. Charles said it reminded him of this:
Charles and I had a good time yesterday talking about how I prep myself for becoming a prostitute, since that’s the only option left — apparently — to women in times of scarcity.
Exactly and precisely. And it’s a weird thing to turn away from this kind of thing as if it’s not happening because we support abortion in some way. The truth is, you have to deal with the fact that these conversations are happening if you’re going to have an opinion on the matter.
Look for the mashup of Statler and Waldorf/Inglorious Basterds.
Terribly important article here. Read it all and get comfortable with it because it is what’s happening and I think we’re going to have to make a decision about how comfortable we are with that.
Oh how much I love this guy. Already painted #24 on my Atlanta Braves tank top…
Good resource for the word nerd.
Tonight’s project. Just had to wait for the bananas to ripen…
Tomorrow I’m going to a happy hour and listening to one of the techie guys from SXSW talk about the increasing role of politics and technology at that festival. Looking forward to that. Hopefully I’ll have some cool insights for you. Till then, here’s some music to use as background noise while you consider what to do in the madness of today’s world. It holds up after all these years…
