nuttin to report

Yanks dropped 2, won one - hopefully we will pick up another during the day today.

I spent the weekend hanging out with chellez, who is on the mend somewhat. We watched lots of tv, and I did some creative cooking, but not a whole lot else. I finished House of Leaves, and started rereading some Stephen King for some writing juice. I am going to try and pound out some serious written work this week.

Watched Yin shi nan nu, one of my favorite movies, and rewatched Kill Bill. Hopefully, I'll see the second half this week.

Someone posted this pic on one of my crypzoology communities:

Clearly, it is forced perspective, but i guess enough people get the heebie jeebies about spiders that a few exaggerated solifugae in a pic are enough to override logic. I think "camel spiders" are damn cool though, in a creepy kidna way.

More later, if anything develops.

I was disappointed by Kill Bill 2. Just remember, in an interview, Tarantino said that Kill Bill (1) was a tribute to old Japanese Samurai movies. The second returns to his signature style. I didn't realize that until afterwards.

Oh well; I'll have to watch them together once they are both on DVD.

it was my understanding that the movies were to be shown together as 1 peice, but that he was forced to split by the studio, because they felt that americans would not weather a 4 hour movie.

Those are some big motherfuckin' spiders.

They would freak my shit for sure if I saw one creep up on me, but they are "hella" cool. :D

hella huh?
what makes that deliniation appropriate in a given circumstance? =P
I agree, these things would prolly have me running for a hatchet, but in indirect observation they are morbidly fascinating.

Re: hella huh?
Something about being in control of the situation...

there is no control - only the illusion thereof
control is only given or taken in veryintimate or violent physical exchanges - outside of that, it is all illusory

Re: ha
*smacks forehead*

You sound like philosophers from Atlas Shrugged. If there is only illusory control, then self-control is non-existant?

Also, if you haven't read Atlas Shrugged, do so. It has made me recoil from anyone that has uttered things like that (since I've read it), although I find your--slightly different--take on it interesting. Also, then would you say that intelligence is an illusion? That humans don't actually know anything? Those go along with the theory of control I spoke of.

i would not say intelligence is an illusion.
Also, when I was referring to control, i was referring more to it as the way people interact with thier environments/fellow living things. Self-control is basically a mask put on us so early, we don't know our own faces by the time we could realize that there is another way. It is not an illusion so much as a conformed yolk.

Control over "a situation" or "a problem" or anything which you phuscially don't have a chokehold on is based on intangibles. These intangibles are apt to break down in the worst ways at the most inopportune ways, with catastropic results.

I have read Atlas, and Raynd has some good stuff to say in there, mostly because what she was saying it when she was saying it, it really wasn't out it the open too much.

Humans know what we experience, and, to a limited extent, what our senses can prove to us. I do not think that is illusory.
