Sierpinski Numbers

Into the second and last week of leave from work---I've been cleaning, organizing. I managed to complete the Library project pretty much and JoJo is doing a tremendous job of organizing and decorating it---of course it turned out excellent because JoJo planned it all out---
I am now into the stage of trying to do little things that have eluded me over the past months---like tearing apart my shortwave radio to attempt to get it to work---(wish me luck on that one) cleaning all the vehicles--for i have a tendency to let the vehicles go when i am depressed...they wind up looking like a serial killer is living in them kinda thing......

Something weird did occur this week. My JoJo was watching some show on streaming while i was doing something and the background music for the show was from Sly and the family Stone....hadn't heard or thought of them in years, and they sounded so good I right away ordered their remastered greatest hits CD at a price of all of $5.00 brand play in the Prius for the commute---i am going to try to improve my mood on my return to work via music---Besides, blasting SLY back at white dudes banging out rap next to me at a stoplight ought to be say the least.

The one thing this past election did prove---is that you uptight, close minded, intelligent design, anti-immigration, I want government benefits but only for me, Religious, better than thou, blame the poor, racist, no birth control, anti-abortion, Sara Palin loving, Tea bagging, anti-environmental, corporate lackey, Drug war supporting, praise family values while banging a love boy, phony preaching, Jesus praising, anti-gay, snake dancing, Sons of Bitches are done can make all the noise they want, and of course you will always be a pain in the ass for the intelligent---seeing Jesus in a potato chip, and so forth...this election proves that you win by accident now....not because you are right or that the majority of Americans wish to follow your twisted beliefs...America has spoken and said "You Suck"...your hatred and weirdness lost.......

I've often read on the net that one's Prius can be used as a generator for the house if can plug a simple AC/DC converter into the cigarette lighter (thank God we still have those) and run an extension line into the house. The link below documents an individual in NJ after the storm who has used this technique and after 7 days has used only 3/4 of a tank of fuel...try to power your house off of your Soccer Mom SUV that has a phony hybrid sticker on the the ass end of it? Just being thankful for it's excellent design I think I will wash my Prius this week----is there nothing it can't do?

It's been hard for me to find any intelligent life on our planet recently. A small glimpse of hope was provided in the past election when Washington State and Colorado voted to legalize recreational use of Marijuana  
There may be hope for us yet...failing to legalize weed has been one of the greatest disappointments to me of my generation....falling victim to that fucking Nancy Reagan Bullshit.....I will keep my hopes in check...awaiting the decisions of other states----and the Federal Government---there is a huge machine making money warring against Marijuana and smokers.....these people are not going to simply give up their profits and walk away.....but as i said it is a glimpse of intelligence---finally.

Pizza and a DvD's subject this week was The Raven with John Cusack.  I liked it. Many places on the web give it 2-3 stars but I thought it was an excellent film---of course I like both Poe and Cusack so my small audience of one was properly covered by this film. The Movie's premise is that Poe--although largely unknown (they point out he made $9.00 on the poem the Raven) had a cult following which led to his death by poisoning. 
The movie is very textured and very dark---If you like period pieces and are in the mood for a bit of gloom I recommend The Raven.

"What really matters is what you like, not what you are like.....
Books, records, films--these things matter. Call me shallow 
but it's the fuckin' truth."

Warren - t also took pleasure in the Tea Party not making further inroads - unfortunately I live in the ultimate TEA Party state of Texas - Raven was indeed a good flick.
