Yup, it's still upon me. I'll try not to put anything in here about punching Nazis or strangling Israeli Defense Forces. It's the strangest thing I have no desire to do either of those things at the moment. It's weird how thoughts work no?

I finally got some dye for my t-shirt dying adventure. It was between beet waste and dye and the dye won. They are about the same price except cleaning beets is one of my least favorite kitchen jobs. I am happy to not be coerced into doing that in order to eat food and survive so I will probably never eat beets again if I am making the food. Unless my mom wanted me to make her her mom's borscht for some reason. Then I might come out of beet cleaning retirement.

I am also on the path of budding bread making novice. It's nice to get more or less the same benefits of quality bread as an expert would. The learning curve is tremendous to get to expert baker status for sure but just making a simple loaf of bread is actually quite easy as long as things are exact. Everyone should try it!

Painting has been painting. I mixed the most beautiful murky green-brown today and gesso'd a canvas with it. I'm interesting to see how that one will turn out.

If I could just figure out a way to volunteer say 25 hours a week and have the rest of the time for leisure that would be dandy. It would be nice to actually see friends. I've actually been faring pretty well in this quarantine. Sometimes I don't feel like reading which can really throw a wrench into the cogs but other than that it's been quite alright. I am not looking forward to going back to 40 hours a week at my current job. That is so many hours. And I haven't been able to think of something else in the mean time. I could move to PA and play poker. $20/hr at 20 hours a week feels like it could be doable. And that is the only way I can think to achieve that. I can't think of anything else that I could work 20 hours whenever I want and achieve $20/hr. I don't know I'd rather find something where it at least feels like I am adding some value. Not in the tech dickhead sense of adding value but more so being useful to the planet, its ecology, and yes the beings on the planet as well. I have had a lot of time I could have looked more into this but maybe now is the time.

In other news Elon Musk and Grimes have named their baby boy X Æ A-12. X meaning the variable X. An unknown quantity. Æ is elvish for AI which is "love" in Japanese and it can also mean Ai (artificial intelligence). A-12 is a Lockheed CIA spy plane which is also nicknamed "Archangel" (Grimes favorite song of hers).

I like the letter X and I also like math so that is whatever.

The first thing I think of when I think of Love is AI and when I think of AI is Love.........

A Lockheed CIA spy plane????? Really???? Grimes made sure to clarify that it was a "non-violent" plane but what does she think it was doing reconnaissance for?


These 2 fucking people I swear. I think I resent them.

Have you ever thought about Online teaching? 20 hours at 20ph is pretty feasible and stress free. Could be an option.

On first glance it could be quite competitive and a lot of hard work to create a course. I actually wouldn't mind spending more time per week teaching. That is something that feels quite useful. I don't think any work is stress free but it could definitely be an option. Thank you.

There are companies you can work for that do all of the lesson creation and marketing for the students. You would just have to teach the powerpoints that they upload for you. It's easy man

Maybe I'll have a look at it mañana... One of my favorite words? Perhaps.

I think I'm in a spot where I just have to pass some time. I re-watched 2001: Space Odyssey last night. Really fucking good man. I forgot what real cinema was. My nigga Stanley produced, directed and wrote it. That's how a good movie gets done. I've seen four movies in the last year. 2001: Space Odyssey, Parasite, The Joker, and Emma (lol). Emma some friends asked me to go and I wanted to hang out so said yes. It wasn't too horrible. Better than a comic book movie. But, 2001: Space Odyssey awoke my love for cinema. Tonight or this morning I found a website called "Letterboxd" that seems pretty good. It's like IMDB but better. There are a ton of their top 250 films that I haven't seen that look really good. It feels comforting in some way that I can just browse my recently made watch list if I am in the mood for a film. And it's there in stone. I can throw a movie on there and not worry about forgetting about it similar to "Goodreads." I'm not always in the mood to read.

I want to figure out a way to make my own t-shirts/clothing. I want to make them out of hemp and recycled plastic bottles. I don't have the machines or the skills though. It's frustrating.

It's too late to watch a movie and too early to go to sleep...

I guess I'll read some more.

I just finished watching Harakiri. I thought it was a fucking fantastic film. It's cutting into my reading time but what are you going to do? I might have too many books up in the air but again what are you going to do? I started "The Book of Disquiet" by Fernando Pessoa. I got it ages ago when Loco suggested it but then I was watching an Antastesia book review where she was discussing it and thought I'd dig it up on the ole Kindle and dig into it. I usually don't like reading 2 novels at once but in this case it's kind of interesting. Fernando writes how he writes. It's disjointed. It's from the heart. There is a charm and a flair that I really like. He strikes me as a guy that used writing as a way out of his day job and life in general. It was said of Kafka that he wrote because he didn't feel right doing anything else. Kafka wrote out of a sort of sleepless or needful madness and it appears similar for Pessoa but I don't want to go too far I've only read 10% of the book. The chapters are very short. Nabokov at the time of Ada is an old master at the craft. He writes with utmost confidence and a plan. Nabokov's writing is like sort of really pretentious except he has the talent and culture to back it up. Martin Amis says of Nabokov's writing that he sets you up in his finest chair with a bottle of his finest wine as he cooks an outstanding cuisine in the kitchen. Something Bocuse would cook. Like a 5 star, 5 course French spectacular with dessert and espresso and cognac. Say what you want about Nabokov but he cares about his reader. I find myself going back and forth. Read a handful of chapters of Pessoa and then a chapter or so of Nabokov. Tough life eh? I feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger in that clip from Pumping Iron where he is cumming all of the time except Schwarzenegger is a buffoon and that is not like my life at all.

Real tough life though. I cooked a real nice vegan Indian curry for my mom for Mother's Day. Not a bad day all things considered. I think the addition of a film at night helps things out because sometimes I just flat out get sick of reading all day.
