Chaitin's Omega

This past week was highly dysfunctional around me---My wife and I celebrate no holidays other than birthdays--so during holiday seasons I feel as if I am an anthropologist, living among a foreign culture while studying them. 
It may be the stress created by this stupidity of capitalistic buying frenzy---that makes American society even more bizarre during these holidays. People appear crazed and overloaded by the demands placed upon them by family and friends.

What if more people were like my wife and I and just totally, totally disregarded, ignored the demands....then your holidays would truly be holidays..

So to those of you not buying, not pretending it is great to see the relatives, not traveling in the worst weather because you feel like you have to....
to you we say happy holidays---to the rest of you chained like a dog to the holiday fence post---we say---hope you survive........

I was passed by about 5 Chevrolet Avalanches Friday on my commute home from work. 

All of them speeding and occupied by only the driver and carrying nothing in the rear cargo compartment---but then it suddenly struck me............

I have never, NEVER observed one of these fucking pig like vehicles carrying more than the driver and I have never observed one of these mall attack vehicles carry ANYTHING as cargo.....NEVER..........NOT FUCKING ONCE!!!
Every one of these vehicles were transporting a single person somewhere--a job which could easily be performed by a Smart Car....I am fully aware that we are a stupid culture here in the US---and that our dumb-o-meter is completely pegged out--but what idiot would spend, I am sure, a fortune on one of these fucking things? The headrest TV's are, without a doubt, tuned to honey-boo-boo.

Just purchased and on it's way here is a Sony TCS-580V....supposedly in almost new condition but missing the operator's manual and power adapter. The TCS-580v is quite the, analog recording studio in your pocket, system. A functioning, excellent addition to my tape recording collection. Slightly larger than two packs of cigarettes, and utilizing full size cassette tapes the TCS-580 can record in stereo in the field through built in microphones, or through numerous inputs, and of course playback in true stereo--think of it as a midget version of the large, cassette deck you had years ago in your component stereo system.
I am an unabashed. analog tape freak--owning multiple reel to reel, and cassette recorders. This is a wondrous addition to my collection that really works and that i put into use constantly... I am so happy to have it. 

The end of the world didn't show up for it's appointment----and honestly--inside way down there, we are all probably a bit disappointed. The 21st could have meant freedom from work, debt slavery, the end of the corrupted system we exist under...but it was a no show---they forgot to carry the 1 or something when they were working on the figures back in the Mayan times. 
Can't trust even ancient civilizations now....

Apparently there is a new Mad Max movie in process--Thomas Hardy as Mad Max and one of the few photo's of the film in progress== above---you never know about these types of projects tho---i'm hoping that this works out well....Mad Max made such an impression on the world in the 80's---you had to be there sort of to understand but it did...

After killing 22 people with tainted peanut butter and making hundreds sick--The Food and Drug Administration has slapped the New Mexico Southland corporation on the wrist and has now allowed them to reopen. The employee's in this peanut butter production facility could not wash their hands because there were NO sinks---I hope the owners of this place burn in hell.........and the FDA as well. Apparently you can kill over 20 people and get away with it as long as you use peanut butter and not a gun. 

"You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean;
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean 
does not become dirty."

Warren - best wishes for the new year. Keep up the post. Agree somewhat on the holidays. The feeling that if you aren't giving the latest gizmo then you are jeopardizing their happiness is all corporate.
