Not An Answer

imstillherefin

I heard these words a long time ago in the movie Treasure Planet and they always stuck with me. I like repeating them to myself whenever I feel judged, embarrassed, anxious, hopeless, whatever. I like remembering my arms still move, words still come out of my mouth, brains still on. Nobody’s taken anything from me and unless they kill me dead they never could. I exist, I’ll keep existing. You can love it, I can love it, you can hate it, I can hate it, doesn’t matter, still here. Still gonna be here. Still enjoying it up, down, sideways, standing still. Still stilling.

Your move universe.

Vicarious

If you were watching a movie about your life right now what would you want the main character to do? I never thought the answer to that question had to be particularly grand or larger than life. After all some of my favorite movies don’t have any heroes or explosions. In fact I think the only wrong answer to that question has been nothing. The only wrong thing you could ever do is nothing. I mean if I go out and something horrible happens to me, that’s a pretty interesting story. If I go out and something great happens to me that’s pretty interesting too. The only story I don’t want to watch is one where the main character does nothing. That and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Seriously that movie was horrible.

 

So to recap: nothing, or anything that happened in Transformers: Age of Extinction.

 

Now go direct your own movie.

Into Darkness

lookbutdonttouch

Try to imagine the distant future. Don’t just imagine a world with flying cars and faster computers. Imagine a world that is offensive to us, and yet correct. Imagine a world where people possess not things but ideas we’ve never had. Imagine something you can’t imagine. That is the future.

Am I a dumb? A mental expropriation.

tumblr_na35e5ORkq1sgnfa7o1_500

Everyone agrees on two things: that a majority of people are stupid, and that they are not one of them. We can as such deduce that a common factor shared among all stupid people is a sincere belief that they are not stupid. I can say I’m smart, but that’s exactly what a stupid person would say. Therefore the only way to prove objectively that I am smart is to believe I am stupid, which is the one thing a stupid person would never do. Unfortunately reaching this conclusion makes me feel smart, which reintroduces the possibility that I may be stupid. I realize now that my only choice it to believe that I may or may not be stupid, and I don’t feel any way about that.

 

Solved, next question.

Income Report

14may9

My dad taught me how to stand up alone. My mom taught me how to love anybody. My oldest friend taught me how to stop and help when other people won’t. My sisters taught me how to forgive. My dogs taught me how to laugh at my own jokes. People along the way taught me how to change. And I taught myself that I can be invincible.

 
Rich and getting richer…

We are so weird.

forefathers
First, the above illustration isn’t a dig at my parents, grandparents, or even family tree. Most of what I love about myself I get from my family (also probably why I’m crazy). I’ve always been disillusioned with patriotism and tradition though. I like objectivity. Why do anything just because it’s the way that it’s been done? I like change. I want to change always.

Now, America as examined by an alien:

Notes on planet X334:

1. Humans use expensive cut up rocks to pledge love to one another. Most don’t even contain color.

2. Humans made everything faster, yet work more than they used to in some masochistic cycle of death.

3. Humans who move at only 30 times the speed of walking greatly anger the humans moving at 31 times the speed of walking.

4. Humans spend time hiding things in boxes that are then immediately torn open by other humans.

5. They prefer humans who are smaller horizontally, but not vertically.

6. Humans all clear their heads and stare at a large striped cloth to music periodically.

7. Some humans express a moment of silence at dinner, possibly in reverence for all the animal death, plant death, and human slave labor that provided the meal. Most of which will be thrown away.

8. Many humans killing each other for pieces of paper with historical figures printed on them. When these prints aren’t available reading the wrong book will suffice.

9. The ones with colorful striped nooses around their neck seem to receive more respect.

10. They filter water many, many times before defecating in it.

Further observation pending.

What I think I might sort of maybe kind of possibly know about life at 25, a compendium of guilelessness:

existential

Okay here we go:

1. Everyone is just an old kid playing make believe. Especially those kids in suits with briefcases. Their new tree house just has an elevator. Buy a kite, one of the really stupid superhero themed ones.

2. Everything worth loving in life you carry in your mind, if love is inside of you then love is everywhere you go. You can’t possibly lose. Attacking yourself is the greatest war crime.

3. Your retirement fund can’t buy you the last 40 years of your life back. Spend more time at the park doing really stupid stuff. Ducks are cool. Your parents disappointment just means they love you anyways.

4. Someone on their death bed was granted the wish of living as you for today. Every day. They usually wish you’d dance more even though they know it’s cheesy to ask.

5. Never fear death, if you’re dead you can’t have regrets, like “Man I shouldn’t have put that fork in the toaster.”

6. Happiness is acceleration. You can only feel it when it’s increasing or decreasing, but neither can last forever. You’d fly off the planet.

7. Music will do more for you than religion ever will. Fill your house and brain with it. Don’t take life advice from anyone who doesn’t.

8. Quit being in a hurry to reach some goal or destination, life is only ever this exact instant that you’re in, and nothing else, ever. EVER. The past literally does not exist, neither does the future.

9. Everything you’ve ever thought can be completely wrong, including existential lists you posted to WordPress.

10. Always say exactly how you really feel. Rejection is better than fear. You can always go it alone.

11. Your stupid cave man body is going to want to think stupid cave man thoughts. This war of logic vs. impulse will last forever. Try to roll with it rather than taking it head on.

12. If you ever start to lose perspective, go outside and stare at the moon until you feel better.

13. Watch lots of documentaries, read lots of books, or don’t who cares? Birds are weird.

14. Life is also weird.

15. You’re definitely forgetting something.

If you need me call me. I”ll be hanging out with this stupid whale.

Can a waffle predict the existence of god?

yowhat

Is there any way for you to have what you want when what you want is to have what you don’t? If we can’t all be what we were then were we what we were have? I mean if you don’t have to want what to be for then what is there to become for it to have anyways? It’s just a cycle of whatever you want what to be for and have that we can’t all be anyways. When what’s what is the what you want then the what what will become the what what to be what. Just have what you long for and to be what you’ll need to be for the future any have. Sometimes I think that we are having something to be for of having what we would without, but then I think that this must be the having of whatever this isn’t. Everything that you wanted to go this way what to have for to be what you’d want to what the where’s of to how isn’t the where have to what if and to be anywhere on the plane of existence. This sentence is comprehensible. Turbulence cheers you dig?

Dah Vinchy

Someone wrote a 1700 WORD POST in response to my Brain Pilots post which essentially states that I am a narcissistic leech who needs Christ. 1700 WORDS! In addition to being 100% accurate it’s probably the most glorious thing I’ve ever seen. It means my words have a response power ratio of 1910%. I’m basically Ashton Kutcher now.

AND, just in time for the post about me being a lazy bastard and my new fame I’ve completed my illustration about aiming high. I hope you enjoy it, but if you don’t please submit your thesis on why it sucks by May 30 for review.

Brain Pilots

lookingformeaning

Stephen Hawking said that man made meaning up, and that it doesn’t really exist. He did stop to appreciate the fact that humans even tried though, and I like to agree. That squirrel running around in your backyard has the same retirement plan we do, so I’ll try to feel as comfortable. Relax, smile or don’t, think good things about people, you know… If your burden gets too heavy maybe I could carry it for a little while. Everyone will have one friend as long as I’m alive anyways.

A really, really stupid phoenix.

There’s only one thing to do with a new notebook, and that’s fill the first page to the brim with complete crap.

What other way could there be to begin such an endless task….
