Dear fellow plague vectors,
I am a pro at social isolation; how are you doing?
Hang in there; you’ll get used to yourself & all your own quirky charm. Until then, offer yourself some kombucha and ask yourself some open ended, non threatening questions. Try not to make yourself feel uncomfortable or scrutinized. You might get nervous and try to run away from yourself…
If you approach yourself like you are your potential new best friend, who knows what might happen?? A whole new world could open up, OR you could die of the plague anyway…
Friends, my 3 favorite astrologers warned me that I should be more charming & less alarming in 2020, so here is the pretty landscape I ripped up in the Fall & promised to reimagine in the Spring. From memory alone! All I remember is how the sunlight pouring in the window made the couch look. And the mermaid sign. And that we were in Unit #8.
(extra plague blessings to anyone who can read the T card : )))
I have so many ideas of what I’d like to be doing with all this time. I’m still trying to chap a book of poems. You all do not understand how difficult a chore this is for me. I’m not sure how you guys do it. I could keep submitting my books to contests, or I could patch them together myself (& perhaps include some art!!) But neither way seems to be happening for me. I am so envious of people who can self edit & present a finite masterpiece.
Plus, I thought I was on a writing hiatus last year. and I was from May to August. But apparently I wrote tons between August & January & I don’t even remember it. Do we call that vacuum-of-consciousness? Yes, let’s.
I have dot fever. Pointillism plague. Stipple syphilus. All I wanna do is make some dots.
|not dots ^^^|
Unfortunately, it gives me a headache. But I’m a do it anyway!!!!!!!
Dot cartoons. I have so many cartoons I wanna do… Shelter Cat & Trust Fund Baby (remember them?) I did one episode & it gave me such a headache I never did the next one.
|I feel the qabalah in this work & call it 'Delta Jerk'|
The Gentoo Emperors!!! There will be more from them I promise. They have so much to say.
And my newest cartoon family The Quintuplets, a group of toddler comediennes doing the publicity circuit.
I also want to revisit my TV show (Singlewood). I have ideas now. And we need ideas during a plague.
|Singlewood dots c. 2012|
Eeeyore (Tony, Moonchild) is also getting us technically ready to do some kind of broadcast/podcast/talking/laughing thing. He has all the technical skills. I have all the ideas. Together we will fight the negativity of the virus. With our proactive & Syd Barrettish antics.
One More Thing. And this is important, so listen up with your eyes:
I know a (the) lot of you were trying very hard to figure out what offends me.
Is it WORDS? Nope, I love words. ( even words meant to hurt me don’t in themselves offend me)
Porn? Nope, I like porn a lot now that I’m the next guy.
Dick jokes? Naw, I like a well crafted dick joke (that’s not a rape joke or a misogynist slur in disguise.) I made a pretty funny dick joke the other day, (you should’ve heard it. Now I’ve forgot it.)
The C word? The B word? The N word? The P word? The x word? The pH word? The brown word? The slang of the 1930s?
No. What truly offends me on a visceral, splenetic level is: Rumormongering. Gossip milling. Groupthink. Herd mentality. Mooing. Viral speculation. Fear of self. Camouflaging ones depth w/ a slick surface. Or hiding out in a crowd.
By the by,
I know which two words offend all of you more than any others and, man….you’re weird : )))
|i think this is weird too ^^^^^|
******************ALSO, I have a serious question
What happens to our deployed troops during this outbreak? Are they quarantined somewhere? What about rogue groups like ISIS?
Does the war on biology end the war on terror (for now?)
What about all the refugees in Europe, and all the families in cages by our border? What’s being done to to keep them safe?
I don’t hear much about these demographics in all the reports about the spread of the virus & they seem important, ‘mmmkay…I’m looking into it now…
