I Always Dreaded Conforming

Sometimes i get so fucking fed up with the world that I just feel like leaving it. Since getting back from my backpacking trip things havent been easy. I had to conform to what the avergae thinks a man my age should be/do. I might be a bit insane but try to follow me here. A deaf person... Deaf people speak the way that they do because they cant hear themselves. They cant tweak their voices as we do to sound "appealing" to other people. To us it sounds funny but if you think about it, thats the way we would all sound if we didnt give a shit about how we sounded when speaking to other people... Do you follow? What im trying to say is i think i will start to speak the way deaf people do... Im gonna put no effort into tweaking my voice to sound appealing to you him or the other person. ye i might sound like a retard and you might not like it but then the fuck with you... ARRRORORAAAAAAHH!!!!

So Where Do You Summer? In Brooklyn!

Its been 2 years since I enjoyed a summer in NYC. I must admit that I missed it much. So now the sun blazes the birds chirp and the young bucks crash their cars. NYC is never better. Everybody is out and about. A truly good time it is. I just got back home after doing 100 mph down the Brooklyn harbor in my friend Alonies suped up jet ski. All of us congregate by a place near my house called Gerritsen beach. Everyone brings their boats jet skis and motorcycles. Had a good time yesterday at a place called Spuytin Duyvel. Me n Riss wondered in high as a kite and left drunk as skunks. In Williamsburg this place has over 200 beers, never have I drank a better dark. Damn good and rich. As if their beer isn't enough they have some tasty cheese and salami to compliment that bottle of Corsendonk.

I wish I can say that all is well but im extremely bothered by some news I just recieved from my parents. A stunning and all around lovely girl, one of the first I've ever kissed has passed in a car accident in Miami... She was older than I, beautiful and vibrant. I wish I would have written about her sooner as she definatly had some part in the process that made me me. Heres to you Liliana, one day we shall meet again.

Global Affairs

Pretty fucking weird wuts going on.... Cyclone in Burma,

earthquake in China.

Pardon the shock treatment but the gov't in Burma should be A-bombed I think. So clearly corrupt they are over there. Chinese should be stripped of the olympics in 08 for their genocidal ways. Even mother nature is trying to fuck it up for them. Insanity plagues many these days. Africa is fighting a war between good and evil and the latter is kicking ass. In Congo you have the vicious rapes of village women by the armed militia, world knows and does nothing. In Joburg you have mobs of wackos beating and burning alive anyone that isnt originally from there. Wacko mobs are definitely a scary reality I think. People in places like SA and Pakistan become real savages when bunched up together. It happens everywhere I guess. Could happen at your local game. I think it takes a superior level of intellect to deject what your neighbor and the mob is "fighting" for, to step back and say uh screw that. To hell with our political system! Until they make the popular vote the deciding factor I think I just wont. What's so difficult? Sign up with your social security # online (even the homeless can do this in public libraries) and vote! Who the fuck created the super delegate system? Its as if someone said "ok to make it easy to fool these idiots and rig this election lets confuse them with SUPER DELEGATES!" I guess thats why I like being out in the open country. I dont really like to conform and think like "the mob" I have the best times by myself which might seem sad but its really not. Like my lil cousin in OZ I guess im self contained. I just cant wait to be able to travel again and see some more amazing places... To be able to stay in these places for as long as I want with no financial strain. This is the goal towards which I work. Its not a simple one and it doesn't come easy, but with hard work and dedication it is definately attainable.

The American Dream

Me and "some dude" were talking the other day about what really is the American dream. Is it hard work which eventually leads to some progression which eventually leads to a white picket fence, a fat lazy wife and a lack of interest in anything other than Spike tv? After examining the situation its clear to see, the american dream means going to Saks 5th Ave, buying a $2000 pair of RLX Black label Jeans, some T-shirts for $200 a pop, all the while acting like the cloths arent even worth wiping your ass with, but ya you'll take it... You'll take it, You'll wear it for 2 months pretending your the shit with your head high starting with every girl in the club pretending ur a millionaire... And then you go and get a full fucking refund. Many I know do this and thats how they "WORK THE SYSTEM" I once went with someone to Bergdoff Goodman. Very upscale retail place in NYC. It was his girls birthday and so for gifts we were shopping. Having just returned from a Backpacking trip and scroungeing around for cash I found it odd that this dude was offering to buy me a thousand dollar jacket or anything I wanted really. W/ever I said its ok but thx, knowing 'some dude' is a little better than ok financially. So he went on to buy his girlfriend some shoes "Lebutton" something or others. A G-note for shoes. I was thinking hmm... Maybe better off than I remember. Then he said a purse she wanted...OK.. A purse that costs $4,500 Coulda bought a car. Swipes the credit card no questions asked. Store policy in these places seems to be no hassle= No id verification. Let me now say that I dont at all condone these actions or such behavior but whilst making our way further midtown this dudes cell rings and he puts it on speaker "HELLO SIR, WE NOTICED IRREGULAR CHARGES ON YOUR CREDIT CARD... DID YOU JUST BUY SOME HIGH TICKET ITEMS WITH IT"? WHY NO WUTS GOING ON WUT HAPPENED..... The American Dream is wut Happened. The chick went on to explain that she is so sorry he fell victim to fraud and the balance will be smitten immediately from his account... Schemes and scams that you might think the Russians started are what make up the American dream. And because of it the economy is crumbling. The finest city on earth is no doubt deterioting like a meth fiends face. Its clear to see. I like the Swiss dream: Check out this Swiss dude Yves Rossy and his very own wings.

Anyhoot, gotta say- The weathers fucking awesome. I just love it. I love going to work in the city, on the subway crossing my legs with my cargo shorts and flip flops. Whilst every one is sweating bullets in their suits and what not. Being of information age, the web is where I work and I have yet to find a no T-shirt policy.

Very Vexed

Some interesting things I have to note. Not long ago my teenage sister was robbed at gun point by some black dude. So very pissed I became as its my lil sister and it reminds me of NY pre Giuliani. I wanted vigilante justice. As it turns out the cops actually did their jobs for a change and caught this idiot. I very much wanted to break this guys arm or somehow to teach him a lesson. Fact is he is going to pay a much higher price, being that he has stolen before he will do 15-20 years. Our legal system is fucked and it needs to change I think. After this fucker stole from my little sister my tax dollars will pay to house and feed the monkey for 20 years? I would have been content just breaking his nose. Faced with 20 years I think its easy to guess what he would prefer. Its emotionally draining knowing you had a hand in sending someone to one of these nightmarish places.

I had an interesting moment of clarity the other day. I remember attending an over-seas program at Tel-Aviv Univ. This was back in 2000. I was there when this whole intifada arose again between Israel and the Palestinians. me and my mates were bbQing on the roof of our dorms when we heard a huge bomb explode. It was the one that killed many club goers at the entrance to a place that was called Pacha. All of us American jews wanted America to intercept. We were hoping our country with all its mite would understand and help our cousins in Israel. So many idiots are complaining about Bush and all hes done. I agree that he is an ass but what hes been doing in the middle east makes it seem that he was brainwashed by some jewish rabbi or something. I promise to slap any jew I hear complaining about Bush, the war in Iraq or the prospective war in Iran because its by far the best thing that could have ever happened to us. Honestly, I think our president is a puppet doing exactly what his father is telling him to and his father learned by being around intelligence reports for over two decades that muslim extremists dont care about life. They think anyone that isn't muslim should die and so where Bush is sending them..... They belong.

Anyhoot, its a very shady world I must say. This story with the DC madam and her bullshit suicide note is a slap in the face to any intelligent American. I mean we all know how little we are in the eyes of you big shot politicians but to rub it in our faces as you did by killing this chic is frankly, appaling. Another pressing issue, the prescription pill epidemic must be dealt with. 2 people I know in the past month have died as a result of taking them. Yeah reality sometimes sucks and our nation is known for being lazy and so instead of telling us to deal, our doctors are feeding us prescriptions faster than a subway beggar can say "its for food". I hope to give those that check in on me here an idea as to whats going on. So ther.
