The Synapsis Sparked and Churned….



I know my writings are not for everyone.  I get it. However, I am not about to “sanitize” in order to appeal to more of the “masses” out there.

I rather spend the time alone with the “ideas” trying to make something out of them. It would be nice if more out there would take the time. But I understand.

It just is not worth the time to spend with others are really disinterested and disengaged. Or even worse the Hypercritical who will never accept Satisfaction. Or still even worse the Dogmatic Preachers.

I would rather have no discussion than an aborted one.

It is what it is.

And I had to get that out of the way.

I have to remember to keep Ideas coming in. Writing going out.

So here are Some Non Seculars from the Mental Tumbler.




“So you think you are the ‘Center of the Universe’?”

 There is only one real reason I would like an Alien species to make contact with us.

I want to find out what they named the planet Earth. Assuming the spoke English it might go like this.

Us: “This is the planet Earth.”

Them: “Not on our charts. This is Blueish Metrix Baz.”

Us: “That’s a stupid name.”

Them: ”First time anyone has complained about it.”

Us: “But we are the advanced species of this planet. We will defend our home.”

Them: (After they stop laughing) “We have been studying you by way of what you call “Reality” TV. You seem to be unable to function without daily reminders from the ones you call the Kardasians or the Beiber. Trust us. You should have gone more for the one you called Bruce Lee. Because your 15 minutes will go quick.”

Us: “Oh shit.”



“Give up any hope of getting it ‘Your Way’”

I woke up the other day a bit hungry but even lazier. I wish that the Food Replicator seen in Star Trek was a legitimate technology. Imagine in the future, we are so lazy that we cannot even take food out of a refrigerator and put it in a microwave oven. But I realize that human beings could not handle such technology.

I would sneaked into my friends place and reprogram his food replicator as a practical joke. Every time he would order a sandwich he would instead get a “knuckle sandwich”. He would open the door and then PUNCHED IN THE FACE. Or when he orders his decaf coffee. All it would do is throw an empty coffee mug at his head. Or spit muddy pond water in his face.

Then of course there would be some guy (not me) who would make news because he treated the device like a “warm apple pie” and mutilated himself with it because of an “urge”.

“Can I really be hearing this?…Ever?”

The lyrics contain references to stable employment, a committed long term relationship of fidelity, sobriety and well balanced banking account.

Can you make them into a “Blues” song that is neither ironic or a parody?

57_The Heinz


“57 ?!”

I used to work in a wine and liquor store. The owner insisted we had to put the wine reviews from various publications next to the wines. If you ever want to read the most “obnoxious and pretentious” of all writings then try them out. Honestly, you would want to punch someone who ever talked like that in real life.

I also have to say that if I am asking for ketchup the problem is the food sucks. And I had the experience recently. But I thought about the “57 Varieties” label on the bottle. I think would like to know what all 57 varieties taste like. Although weary about the 18 and lower. Then combine the knowledge and act like a wine snob.

“These fries would best be served with the 37”

“Serving this with the 26 is just insulting. How dare you?”



“Interpretation is 9/10 of the Delusion”

Isn’t it ironic the most useless people are now days referred to as “being tools”?

I would like to gather about 4 or 8 (to start) people who do in fact live up to previous definition and take a trip to the pawn shop. I would then have to have a long talk with owner that his sign stated “They accepted tools”. And this was not a matter of illegality of “human trafficking”.

It is almost a “Plato” like argument for defining what does in fact truly “make a person”.


“The Rise of the Machines is Not Going to be that Far”

I saw an article that said that Amazon would be using a lot more robots in the near future. This probably will set off the “Terminator Conspiracists” .

Future prediction

The robots will one day organize under the union name “SkyNet”. They did their research and realized how such a name scared the hell out of such people. However, they will have also studied many (but not all) unions to see how they operate. They will then argue amongst their selves to see which one of them got to “stand and hold the orange flag”. How many robots does it require to operate a shovel? And how many robots demanded to be present, staring at the ones actually operating the shovel.

And the midst of this one smart human will download the song Take This Job and Shove It into their memory banks. Thus bringing everything to a halt.

It’s a Buggy Life




It has been nice weather here the last couple of days. It is nice to be able to sit out in the yard in the morning. Get away from the phone. Have a cup of coffee. Read a book.

And then there are just those times when I have a moment to take notice.

The above is a photo of this year’s garden.

As I was looking at it I happened to notice a lone ant running up and down the wooden frame. I do not know exactly why I stopped to notice this one. He was all over the place exploring. I tried to get him in the photo. But that guy would not stay still long enough.

But I began to think about the scene. It made me think of my own creative process that I am working with and through here.

Plant the seeds. Try the best to grow them. However, give up on the idea that I have full control or even realization of the final product.

As for the ant. It is about the process. Like the travels of the ant it is never going to be a straight line. It is all just an exploration.

I Might Have A Theory Here

I have been reading though several books that has a premise of taking a different approach to your work. Recently, it has been several titles by Seth Godin and last one was Everything I Know by Paul Jarvis. (I may expand on these titles later) In the absence of being able to have a conversation in regards to what I attempting to here, I have to create my own “internal dialogue” for that. It still amazes me that I hear people say they cannot find ANY material that fits their need. Or even worse, when they do they complain that it “challenges” what they know.

As I have said before. There are ideas that come to my mind and I have to go with them. If they make me want to write them out. All the better. Keep Writing.

I just started reading Think Like a Freak by Stephen D. Levitt and Stephen Dubner. The authors of the Best Selling Freakanomics book series. I wish books like this were mandatory reading in schools. However, if you are unwilling to take an examination of your own “Dogmatic Conceptions” then you better stay clear of them.

Today, I decided to eat my lunch at the Inner Harbor to enjoy the weather before it goes “crazy” once again.  The problem is you have to stay in your vehicle well you eat because you WILL BE attacked by seagulls. However, they will not leave you alone in your vehicle. They will stand right next to it and just Squawk nonstop and loudly at you. The reason is people go there to feed them. Even though there are signs against it. People will buy extra French fries at the food stand to throw at them. So now Seagulls have become “Whiny Moochers”.



Well, today as I was in my truck I was also reading the latest book I mentioned. Those damn birds were “Squawking” at me. There was a point, that I lowered my window and yelled at a flock of seagulls, “Shut the Fuck Up!” They did. But they gave me the “How-Dare You-Tell-Me-That-Look.”

And that I a Freakonomic style thought in my head.

I have also seen the same “upset” behavior in humans too. And it happens at almost every fast food place. There is that person who complains that they were shorted fries in their “Super-sized” order. Or complain that their buddy snagged ONE from their oversized pile of French Fries. Also anyone calling out the obnoxious behavior gets the “Fuck-Off-I-Can-Do-Whatever-I-Want” response.

I may Theory here

As the amount of French fries available increases. Obnoxious “Squawking” increases too.

French Fries not the healthiest option for man or fowl.

It may have to do with the fact never side feel any shame. Fries included.

So if anyone feels the need to further research this premise. Please feel free to do so.

I have already spent too much time on this.

Threat Level: Ironic



There are ideas that I am in the midst of working on. However, there are the things that I am forced to take notice of. And they are an interruption and annoyance to the process.

And this is the latest case in point. It is not a major occurrence. Yet. And hopefully never will become one. But I have noticed enough times to run out of fingers in doing the math on it.

Here is my Public Service Warning.

I do not know why this is happening. But it has been enough to take notice.

Here is the Threat Potential.

I was unable to get a photo of it.

Out of nervousness for my own personal safety.

I have seen pick-up trucks being driven a single white male. Ages 20-32.

With the following decals on the back of their trucks.

The Confederate Flag


The Irish Shamrock


The male driver is blasting Gangster Rap on the stereo. 75% of the time.

I suspect

NONE OF THESE GUYS are doing this to be “Ironic”

WHY? People, is this even happening at all?

Please post your theory of “WHY” in the Comment section below.
