Man, those things are nasty. The Forest Service ought to turn wolverines loose on anybody they catch with the makings for that shit, let alone burning down the forest to do it.

Somehow I didn't see your two posts above my Modest Mouse clip yesterday. I linked the clip because the video hits on so many things mentioned here recently - corral, sheeple, etc.

I know a man who runs a loud motorcycle in his driveway for 20 minutes at a time, apparently because it gives him some sort of satisfaction to hear it run.
Do I question whether people are attracted to mindless noise? Are you kidding?

Watch a film from the 50s. Every word of dialogue is clear as crystal and loud enough for grandma to hear.
Watch one made last month. The actors all have shit in their mouths. They lower the volume for dialogue. They raise it for mindless noise. They obscure the former with the latter.

No, I don't question it. I was expressing disgust over some of the choices people fail to make.

Ironical, ain't it, how people get all revved up over the choices they fail to make.

I wouldn't call it ironical per se… it isn't as if we all get another go 'round at this.

No offense meant towards those who think they may come back next time as eagle or an ant (and I'm not sure if that belief system pressures a fellow more or less to "make the most of it" than someone with my one and done ass-sump-tons) but

the point is the same. Make hay while the sun shines, stop to smell the roses, call it what you will… the older I get, the harder it is to ignore the disturbingly accelerating march of mortality and concurrently, lament time spent pissing into the wind. Or simply time spent in disgust at other people's failure to decide not to, which is ironical.

Being dead wouldn't have any effect on the truth of that.

Incidentally, being alive wouldn't either.

Apart from reincarnation, nothing that happens after you're dead means shit (to you) in any case.
It doesn't mean that you can't wish that life was better with regard to things beyond your control, or muse upon a time when it was.
Spending time in disgust? Yeah, okay. But it's more like enduring disgust for a time - it's not exactly voluntary, anymore than is depression. I often wish that I didn't give a shit about anything. I imagine that such people are a hell of a lot happier than I am.
As for reincarnation, being born again in any form means you still have lessons to learn - it's a punishment of sorts, not a reward. And you could be reborn as a garden slug. But it's possible they're a hell of a lot happier than I am, so ....

What would happiness look like to a garden slug? Or feel like? The ones I share my garden with seem to have an unwavering affection for shit. For as long as it remains moist. And only for that long.

Noone is drawn to old, sun dried and dessicated shit. No one.

Happiness is overrated. So is unhappiness. Except as a measure of your journey to or from a fragrant pile.

Keep on truckin'. Revving your motor. Scratchin' out a few more miles. Or centimeters. Sunshine doesn't always bring smiles.

But it damn near always brings warmth.

Pass the camp fire.
Hold the smores.
I worked with an old cracker from Georgia years ago, right there in Georgia.
"Happier than a dead pig in the sunshine", he liked to say.

Heaven to a slug would be a saucer of Beer, in more ways than one.

My kids do exclaim, "Oh, God!" in my direction with some regularity.

Crack the door again at the old hangout
Still nobody there
Thick dust on the taxidermored owl
None of it weighs anything
Everything is free
There's not even a bartender
There are other places now
Popular places
pompous
Proper places
placid
They weren't around
When love came to town

I don't know those other places, there's no other place around the place, so this must be the place, but it sure is quiet.

Other "absinthe" places, whereas this used to be the only one.
One is cool, but formal.
One is popular, but pompous.
You know them.
But you're right. This must be the place. I reckon.
