    Ed said he was curious about the world cup. You guys should take him to one of those bars.

I am not "World Cup-curious".

I fully embrace the World Cup lifestyle, and honestly the parts of town where World Cup fans move to are the most up and coming and desirable.

    I'm doing my jewelry shit and that's it.

Do you have a post somewhere about what you're doing on this front?

What rhymes with circledot...

Awww yeah! What’s good in Maryland?

Yeah, I think the isolation + fringe opinions part is key. Lord knows there is a niche rabbit-hole for every bizarre desire and destructive emotion on the internet. Micro-communities can now easily form around fleeting ideas and phases of despair, giving them a place to take root and grow. Then add the intersection with gun culture and you're baking a cake.

I've had similar thoughts to mk in that what used to be suicides are now turned outward. I'm not sure that the hopelessness or despair have gone up though. I think it's more that those with that despair have access to networked micro-communities that celebrate taking others out with you, they see the media reward others who have, the constantly growing list of others who have done the same, all against a backdrop of a culture where the NRA add below is mainstream for large communities in our country:

It does. Or the high level NPC you have to kill to get it.

Ok maybe I'm projecting

But part of you is impressed...

I've been listening to working while Music for Installations by Brian Eno plays lately. I was burning some Mexican copal last Saturday while listening to The Ritan Bells (below) and working and had some really good flow going I must say.

I almost bought a '79 Datsun just like this one in the 90's. I was in school at the time and broke, so I decided not to spin that wheel as I had no idea what maintenance on it would entail. I got as far as saving the Craiglist post, but never ended up calling on it.
