Cliches and Core truths

they are cold when they are truest, and commonly ignored when they used to be spoken cliches proverbs and homilies, often from the wisdom spoken around the kitchen table, or the fire, where food, warmth and companionship was, tv or screens, the plato’s cave, after the fire of primal existance of imagining how much better life could be

lights in the sky to the ideas in the mind

not echo chambers or shadows, flickers on a screen or the cave wall

humans, we build walls with rooms to cave in, outside in the blue blue room, eh. scary, no longer because of superstitions or wildlife or in many places, military attack or police kicking in doors and dragging the unsuspecting or the suspected out of bed to government facilities ,public institutions, the line blue line, behind a budget of red and black ink.

like typewriters used to have the dual colour ribbon for accounting

and the word processing ones eventually a correction ability, some could even print two copies and store one entire letter. a page of words, not the things the words are comprised of, eh.

I was online when it was the information highway, eventually called Web 1.0. with the ironically named Social Media Era Web 2.0, ending with net neutrality in Cyberwar Web 3.0.

I wonder if we will get to Web 4.0 the Authenticated web. no more conducting society in favour of criminality over public society.

the internet is, after all, published content and bullying is not merely slander, but libel. and free speech is not consequence nor legally unaccountable. it comes with responsibility to share the public square.

Pleasantries and Platitudes, eh

How I loath them.

It has been a while on the blog that I have posted a journal or essay, what blogs began as before they became online magazine marketing tools.

All the hassel of a layout program that one wanted to text in.

Well, videos and graphics, being images of word concepts, why each one is a thousand of the other, eh.

Anyway, just rambling out words, mostly to hear a unique sequence.

too many “how are you”s spoken knowingly exactly how I was. often the speaker saying it after they were already passed and over their shoulder at me.

then I found a friend who after I had listened to him over a few phone calls, asked me how my day was.

it was that he absent mindedly explained he should observe the courtesy that removed the pain, the sting, the dread and fear and terror of those words, that needle in the wound, salted by memories preserved in layers of repeated experience.

I have been on vacation for the first time in 3 three years, since I became permanently disabled, PTSD, socially disordered.

and my vacation with a family, with whom I am friends with three people; is ending, tomorrow our last day.

on the 18th, one returns home to the fourth on the other side of our planet.

and two of my friends will remain here.

and, this spring, I will be moving. so changes ahead for 2019. people to look forward to.

Reader Chat 001

As I did not profession in fiction writing, in the public sense of it, anyway; eh. This is the first post about lit/erature from the reader perspective.

J. Scott Coatsworth – OwnerQueer Sci Fia day ago

FOR READERS

Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer Angel Martinez:

We’ve talked a lot about the tropes you love (and when I say trope I mean story component/ archetype, not cliche.) What tropes are guaranteed to make you walk away from a book. Be aware that someone loves every trope you hate, so please don’t be judgmental about them 

Mary Newmana day ago

I detest the trope where the sex amounts to rape, yet the survivor falls in love anyway and they live happily ever after. It used to be a thing in the old bodice rippers but I’ve seen it in a few queer romances.

yes ,the bodice rippers of golden haired, raven haired or flame haired orphaned woman raised by spinster aunt or confirmed bachelor uncle, who becomes a servant/nanny and raped and then burns down that above her station rapist family home, exposing the family secret and then getting married. it is as bad as the male zipper gripper of the man who can do anything but talk to a woman, eh

Also among those works burned were the writings of beloved nineteenth-century German Jewish poet Heinrich Heine, who wrote in his 1820–1821 play Almansor the famous admonition, “Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen”: “Where they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people.”

Hear the Inter-generational No

Nina Notes: the first time I saw this post the header of the graphic did not include the name and it was the Generation Y that caught my attention; as 50 year old I am the leading edge of Generation X, as the term was coined and popularized in analog life, or actual existence – as the 20 plus years of the “reality tv” genre has now put a tv show host to end the party who’s decline began with the B Movie Actor, eh. the change to this was mid-flirting and I immediatly stopped flirting and there is an earlier blog of that exchange. but today, there was another post, so I am sharing this as an addition to the LezFlirt Manual, about graceful exits and leaving people in as good or better than when one encounters them. 

From a butch perspective, do not cause harm to a femme that another butch has to undo, eh. Gathering rosebuds is one thing, but bruising and harming is never okay. eh. The Dan Savage Campfire Rule Applies, as does Safe Sane Consensual.

Doug Ford extends Ontario education consultation beyond sex ed

As part of his announcement, Mr. Ford also threatened to discipline educators who defy his government’s orders to use a 20-year-old sex-education curriculum and he launched a platform for parents to anonymously report concerns on what is being taught in classrooms.

sex education means sex is made less romantic and icky, reducing teen pregnancy with information and safe sex/contraceptives

better to wear a condom than a coffin, eh. 

https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2019/jan/16/les-idoles-paris-french-director-christophe-honore

““I realised there was still a cloud of suspicion hanging over gay citizens,” says Honoré, best known internationally for comedies and musical films including 2007’s Love Songs. “I felt hurt, but also responsible, because in my work I’d never thought that gay visibility might still be important. I felt like I’d failed, like I’d deserted the fight the generation before me had led.””

How is catatonic not the new black?

normal from what we know, so far

Extinction is a natural process, but it's happening at 1,000 times the normal speed


Originally shared by gangigirl1“The most regular counter argument contends that we should not worry about extinction, because it is a “natural process”.

First of all, so is death, but it does not follow that we meekly surrender to it (especially not prematurely or at the hands of another).

But secondly, fossil records show that current extinction levels are around 1,000 times the natural background rate. They are exacerbated by habitat loss, hunting, climate change and the introduction of invasive species and diseases.

Amphibians seem particularly sensitive to environmental change, with estimated extinction rates up to 45,000 times their natural speed.

Most of these extinctions are unrecorded, so we do not even know what species we are losing.”

the news talked about whether a tv miniseries about nuclear destruction was too scary instead of say dealing with politics and religion to prevent it from actually happening, eh
