A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT MY FAVORITE SINGER/SONGWRITER OF ALL TIME, MR. JOHN PRINE




              I learned my three guitar chords from listening to John Prine records. The rest is history... and a long blur of well-used brain cells.

DASHCAMS... COMING TO A CAR NEAR YOU, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT...




                  I was trespassing over at BJ's place a minute ago, and he had posted a dashcam video of pedestrian mayhem on Russian highways. I commented that I could envision a time in the near future when every car would be required to have a functioning dashboard camera.

                  Not only would we be required to have them, they would probably come as standard equipment on all new cars before too long.  The cams would be required by the insurance industry, and we all know those guys get whatever they want from auto manufacturers.

                  Think about it. Our cars' computers already monitor our speed, whether or not our lights are on, if we did or didn't use a turn signal at the last intersection, our braking habits, hard accelerations, etc. What makes you think our cars won't soon be equipped with cameras that digitally transmit all of our activities to "the cloud" as we drive?  It's for our own protection, they'll say.

                  Some of us already have OnStar or whatever it's called. Get involved in an accident and a friendly, helpful voice comes out of your stereo speakers asking if you're okay, or if you need assistance. How do you know those same helpful folks aren't listening in whenever they get the urge (or the subpoena from Homeland Security)?

                  Big Brother won't have to watch us.  We'll film ourselves and send the videos to them.


MY KIND OF MEDITATION (not for those of you who are allergic to folks like me who speak in "cursive"...)




                 Namaste, mother fuckers...

OBVIOUSLY, I'M EASILY ENTERTAINED... (making a video of my morning beverage)






             A while back I was making my morning coffee and noticed something odd. I thought I might be experiencing a flashback of some sort, then realized it had more to do with liquid weight dispersal than anything I might have done in my younger years.  

             If you pour Kahlua into liquid coffee creamer you can see this for yourself.  I think. Maybe not.  It might all be in my head, after all.

             I used a bowl for this video, because I wanted to put a little more light on the subject than a coffee cup would allow.

             At about the 40 second mark the blend sort of looks like my face in the morning before I've had my coffee...

             Cheers!
