Darn! (Tootin’)

Hello there, won­der­ful. So glad you decid­ed to drop by. Won’t you stay awhile?

Banksy’s take on bankers:

Along the­se lines, check out an anthropologist’s arti­cle on the his­to­ry of mon­ey and debt. Unsurprisingly, vio­lence, war, slav­ery, and con­trol are all cen­tral themes in its cre­ation and evo­lu­tion. A long, but fas­ci­nat­ing read.

Pretty much the oppo­site of that, is this.

Wood pow­ered cars have been around since the 1920s.

Bread: 1
Pigeon: 0

The man who helped devel­op mil­i­tary-grade pep­per spray is appalled at how our “police” are (mis)using it to assault the peo­ple they should be pro­tect­ing.

And, final­ly: frogs. They’re pret­ty much awe­some:

I’ll keep on blog­ging, because, you know what? It feels good. And right.

Be well, fair read­er. Until mañana.

Oh, Man,

Thanks to those of you writ­ing in! Here is one of my favs:

From: Mr.Muntari Yeboah muntariyeboah2011@gmail.com
Subject: Hello Friend

I am con­tact­ing you again, regard­ing a sub­stan­tial amount of inher­i­tance funds belong­ing to my late client whom you share the same SURNAME with, Please email me for more infor­ma­tion: Regards, Muntari

Awesome! I’m on it! I could use a lit­tle extra cash, see­ing how the econ­o­my has ground to halt. (Don’t wor­ry, I won’t get start­ed with the polit­i­cal stuff. (Not just yet any­way…))

I came across this gem from the tum­blr-o-sphere.

This made me chuck­le (via the New Yorker):

So, yeah, that just about wraps up anoth­er “blog ‘post’”.

I do want to say, though, that every day moment is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to be reborn. It’s all too easy to get trapped in our own per­cep­tions and judge­ments. These can become habits, and pret­ty soon we think we’re worth­less and pow­er­less. We con our­selves into giv­ing up our free­dom, ideas, time, cre­ativ­i­ty, in exchange for …

Keep on send­ing stuff in, every­one. I’m lov­ing the love, and I love to love you!

xo,

J

 

Yes!

I know you’re there. I see you on teh [sic] google ana­lyt­ics. So I’mma keep postin’ stuff.

What’s going on? Well, I’ll tellya, a lot has hap­pened since MG. I’ve got a doosy of a sto­ry to tell you about that, but I’m still writ­ing it.

8 years. Dubya out. Obama in. The world warmed up a bit. The friend­sters, then the myspaces, twit­ters, and face­books came. I’ve got those!

Also, oth­er stuff:

 

Email me links, ideas, pho­tos, videos, love, what-have-you.

Hey Everybody…

It’s me, –j.

Yep.

It’s been, oh, almost a decade since I’ve writ­ten any­thing for the web. I feel strange. And old. And…

…How are you?

Any MG fans out there?

Anyone at all?

Echoecho…echo

I feel like I’m talk­ing to…nobody…

Prove me wrong: drop me a line: j@www.j.digital

Yes, and send me stuff too.

I do miss you.

xo,

–j.
