I challenge my brother to a game of billiards following bar rules. The game is 8-ball. Said challenge will transpire in late May-Early June 2017. The loser of the bet has to write a song about the winner, record it, and upload it to youtube.

F as in
fighting for freedom against the ugliness of censorship
yeah i want to kill it

and what are you going to do
what are you going to do
what are you going to do about it
cuz i’m fucking crazy
i’m fucking this world up
i’m fucking everybody
and i love every minute of it
as an adjective or a noun or an action so profound that all you can do is say
i like the word
i like to scream it at the top of my lungs
when i’m pissed off excited when i’m sad or in pain
F U C K
such a word
o my word fuck
and we are all fucking
we are all fucking
we are all fucking ourselves over
by giving in to the unnatural desires of corporate scandals and the political handles
of the fucking parties
and by signing our souls over to the devil in his red white and fucking blue
claiming all that we know to be true to hisself
cuz i want the freedom to say what i want to say
and if he doesn’t like it that way
i’ll wave my big fuck you flag in his face
and take back my fucking place
i’ll say it and i’ll scream it over and over again
until i win
because he may have won some battles
but i’ll win this war

i’m leading the revolution towards freedom of speech
and the word fuck will be the first thing we teach
i’m leading the revolution toward freedom of thought
cuz fuck me if i’m wrong
but weren’t we all taught
that liberty and free speech are undeniable
but our liberties and freedoms are too unreliable
so fuck this government
and fuck these laws
and fuck you too if you support their cause
fuck yeah i said it
such a marvelous word
don’t turn away or ignore it
you know what you heard
embrace its importance and give it a chance
cuz it could be our last hope to take back what we had
do you hear what i hear
it’s the sounds of a fucking revolution drawing near

Our skate gods who art in quads,
hallowed be thy name.
On smooth surface, thy shall skate,
on Earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily skate
and forgive us our wheel bumps,
as we forgive those who bump wheels against us.
And lead us not into pebbles,
but deliver us from road rash.
For thine is the park, the rink, and the track,

Suds & Duds is the kind of place that, when discussing it, you may find yourself having the following conversation:
“Hey, what are you doing this fine Saturday?”
“Going to the laundromat.”
“Awesome, can I go with you?”
“Sure, it’s always a party at the laundromat!”
Because it’s amazing. Behold:
- Restaurant-style booths
- Free Wi-Fi
- It’s a 2-minute drive from the house
- It’s probably the cleanest place in Humboldt County?
- There’s an ice cream shop in the same building…
- …And,You can leave your laundry there! They’ll even fold it, for a fee
In this world we’re just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby, I was afraid before
But I’m not afraid anymore
Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth $3.75 a wash. that’s right!
I was reading about Netflix and what it’s like to work for them*, and I came across this slide:
“You seek what is best for Netflix, rather than best for yourself or your group”
Anyway, I’m fascinated by Netflix’s metadata schema. I just added an extension to my browser called Netflix Categories. So far, so good. There are, it seems, hundreds of different categories to choose from. My current favorites are “Deep Sea Horror Movies”, “Steamy Romantic Movies”, and “Experimental Movies“.
I always wonder about the people behind the categories. I wonder who decides which film gets to go into which genre. Or, does an algorithm do that? I also think about the descriptions of the film. Where does this information come from? Who supplies it? Is there a team of people watching movies all day long and coming up with descriptions? Where do I sign up?
And I think about the search engine. I think the world could benefit from an advanced search engine that exposed more of the metadata behind the films. What schema does netflix use? It’s probably proprietary, right? Whatever.
I just find the whole thing fascinating. End post.
*side note: “them” attributes being-ness to the company. I wonder why I did that?
