Review of my Show


my grand show at

I get sick to my stomach naturally before a show, before a performance and this was no different.  I did not know if I could make it, or if I did if I would be in any sort of condition to perform.  Once told the show as up I started to feel better.

My plan had been to have the video screen playing my films from the playlists of the Transcendian Channel on youtube in the gallery space itself, and not off to the side where as it went the kids sat down as it was rolling and put on a shoot ’em up game to play.  They came out from that to play with my megaphone, and the sticks, but got confused when I told them to watch out for splinters.  I gave the child my sanded sticks, since I had run out of time to sand sticks, and they didn’t like the sticks as much.

They loved that megaphone.

My art is long somewhat rough around the edges.  Slick, well slick is slick and I somehow don’t get to that till a lot more money is spent on framing.  To get around that I paint or draw or mount my photographs on wood.  I get good plywood to use.  I paint the edges now to try and keep the painting on the wood, but if someone peels it off, or leaves it out in the rain, it will be destroyed, like anything else.

There are two dream inspired works in this show.  I like to try and capture a dream for a painting.  If you want real and detail from me you get a photograph.  Otherwise it is a straight ahead painting or what I call a wall sculpture.  These works may or may not have some political component.  The main thing is to certify from my art Strength, Wisdom, Beauty & Humor. That is what I try to do in my writings.

The pictures and wall sculptures are aimed at being good company for you, on your walls.  Many of them have been “livability tested” since my wife puts them on our walls.  She used to move the furniture around every day when we were first married, and it is better when she moves the paintings around, from my perspective.

I like it and you can bet for sure it is a good thing my wife likes what I do.  There is one piece in the show that I insisted on.  I know one of them she initially did not like, but grew to like.  She’ll never like the one I insisted on.  It was nice someone told me at the show it was their favorite.

Took me awhile to figure out why someone started crying from looking at my show.  I heard from a witness they were overwhelmed with empathy from work that in some ways tells my story of bad luck and pain.  It doesn’t look like that necessarily you know.  I think “Night of Pain” is a fine cartoon.  I have been through a lot of bad luck, two serious beatings, and my crimes are crimes of poverty.

I fear the police and I fear robbers.

I fear barbarians.

I make movies.  Since I am not getting paid, have no ensemble cast, I make a lot of radio.  I mean Car Episodes as a Transcendian Playlist has come into its own.  You can watch it as my music.  I made the instruments and broke a lot of them up for not working in any satisfying sort of way.  What is left, and in the show at the opening were available to play, They work.

It was extremely helpful that many of the people there had been primed to expect me to says some things directly about Transcendia the model nation.  I was not fully on my game with my composing and jamming.  Brian helped a great deal.  It is very important and a good thing that Brian liked Intendor tm #13 and I do hope he plays it around town as he said he would.  That #13 is also my Australian best friend in IGX.  I had made a place for Roxy, now Roxanne Roxanne on FB because I believe in her talent.

I want to put her on some civilized stages, or in some civilized small intimate room as I saw Ellen Kaye sing in when I was welcome at the Monkey Room.  Whatever anybody, or she might have to say, that place, the Monkey Room, in that hotel, that was the height of civilization and I want to believe her place Moscow 57 gets that back and keeps that experience going.

I was the savage beast calmed by music.

All the Hettig kids are inheritors from me of the name Transcendia.  Too bad that it is under assault.  Work defending the name is created if if is to keep all of its value.  For me it is same as the name Disney is to Disney.  I need you to buy my art and my books so I can push on with my work of creating a nation of airports that becomes a nation of spaceports.  We really do not have time to be worrying too much about the barbarians.

Barbarians steal what they want, and the Civilized work for it.

Keeping onwards has been my tactic.  Those in Singapore, Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Ann Arbor, using my name without honor are a late to it.  They would benefit better then from their stealing, if honor was given and I was turned into their ally and partner instead of pissing me off.

Really, dishonor and theft of what is most dear to me and mine hurts me in my heart and then I want to bad mouth those people.  They hurt me.

An attorney in Intellectual Property working on contingency might well make some real money as there is every evidence of my commitment long ago to Transcendia.

Now the plan is for me to achieve the Currency of Fame in order to really make some big budget love stories and a war movie in order to have the funds to pay of the leases where to put my airports and also put in passport support offices and run the services businesses of Transcendia.  This was my original plan from my early adult youth.  It did not work at the time, but as things have turned out over the years there is no other plan that will work.

I am an artist, and a filmmaker.

The least expensive film I can make is the Serial Playlist Feature.  There are two playlists to which I put scenes for that movie, those movies.  Suggested Viewing for Mac DeMarco, and My New Movie, Movie Quest.

On amazon there is JET Beach, which is a package.  It is a love story adventure movie.  I know it will get made and during that time I will see a foot in a woman’s shoe on a Learjet Air Stair.  Learning how to love like a gentleman or and as a lady is pretty hard to do, especially if you have not seen if done.

The artist knows they have a lot of responsibility when it comes to movies, since kids see them and people will flat out simply do whatever it is they see done.  Rod Serling was really hurt that the barometric bomb was used after he used it in his show.  I knew people that knew that guy and I was introduced once to Rod Serling.  Something eerie did surround the guy as while we were being introduced he was wondering who it was introducing us.  I was just introduced to them.  It was at Adventure in Creativity, one of those schools I had a scholarship to.

I came from a poor and broken home.  At least we were not ignorant as both our parents held Masters degrees.  I claim my parents as good teachers.  It is unfortunate for me that they so bad mouthed the academic life and its political turmoil of “departments” that I went at the working life.

I’ve had a great life of the mind being so connected to pragmatic problems where many of the horrors of life were previewed by great literature.  But you are looked down on as stupid lumpen proletariat by the people who don’t ever have to work in the cold and misery so much for so little.  Mom said,  “No Shame in Honest Work.”

I sometimes don’t know if I might not have had an easier life if I’d just been left to become whatever it would have been I would have become from the life in the South, just that education.  I was not right for it.  I am not right for the racism and meanness of the South, and wasn’t before I was given all these scholarships that raised my ambitions and sense of place and worth.

I had no family in NY.

The Hettigs then are what I have as my great place and wealth.  Ed and I are not getting any younger you know.  I am right damned glad there were sales closed and that that helps his gallery, which he found he wanted to do.

It greatly recommends Roanoke that Ed moved his family there.

So the plan from here and this great event, this great success As I Said what I could think to say about what Transcendia, and people listened.  I said what it  is designed as and what it is for, and what my art is as if I were not now retiring and doing some paint by numbers as did Bush, but that is my job.  It is just my job now full time to be an artist.

My other job, and I take it seriously, is preventing the apocalyptic riot.

The Beats knew one thing:  The Atom Bomb Changed Everything.


P.S. I turned to a study of the Beats after making the CD Beatniks & Spiders.  I recommend Beatdom edited by Alan Willis, & Scientologist by him about William Burroughs.  I am a supporter of the diplomat who died before we could finish our work creating UNTV that showed up on your “fireplace” the real TV, like gets watched by my class of people, working class people.  If I could have made a watchable truth filled UNTV set between CNN & Fox I think I could have prevented the first Iraq War.  Reinventing the UN may be as impossible as reforming the US.  Lots of endemic entrenched corruption. is where to go to get clothes with the Transcendian flag on them. is where to go to buy my books.

It is a grand, powerful, and important show.  I had a good time putting it on, performing, and explaining my goals.  Help me.  Help your friends.  Make sure you have good friends, since there simply is no evidence that any other goal than helping your friends get through this life well matters.

Absolam, Absolam!  The Tragedy of your life is to waste it on bad ideals.


This and That Show, Balance


from trip to C/21 museum and hotel


I cannot afford to think but so much and believe it is not so much that one always makes the right decision, but that one can make it. Meaning make the decision.
For the artist the frame provides hope of perfection. It has to do with the fact of the limits. Because the frame is limited I may create a perfection in that frame.
Of course then you, having a finite life have the prospect of a perfect life then. There is nothing to do. It is perfect because it is, and it is finite.
Free will gives you the power to make it imperfect. You create for yourself an imperfect world when you set for yourself goals that you cannot achieve.
There is history and prehistory. From prehistory no art survives. Sometimes bones and foot prints are found, but no art is found. Cave art and the petroglyphs are nearly perfect for the time that they survive.
How much does the goal determine the perfection of the art? Can art be art at all if it has a political goal?
The modern pop art revolution was political since the goal of the art was to confirm that there were people living different lifestyles than that which was approved by the authorities, and to which one was expected to conform.
In balance I conform to the degree that I decide is good for me. There are authorities who now say that the laws of the land are not good for us.
They have a desire to be the monopoly. NC is Not Conscious. I want to live in Montevideo, Uruguay. They are a small nation of 3 and a half million. It is damp, which makes my bones hurt, but warm. The winds blow. Pot is legal. That is the big thing. I want to get stoned. It is good for me. There are many medical reasons I have discovered since I got so sick that it is good for me, besides I was not born to be sober all the time.
I have told the story of the morning when I came to have for the rest of my life two questions that make my life imperfect. How can I prevent atomic war, and how can I meet, now see, people from outer space.
These are perfectly good questions.
All they have to do with the art on the wall is that the more money I have the more good I can do. I could afford to make speeches. I could afford to rent a stake back and go around to the TV Stations and play my guitar and talk. I could make a scene.
Poverty equals ignorance. I am anti ignorance.
This has to be so if I am to answer my questions in ways that create an infrastructure that lives to do the job of preventing Apocalyptic Riot.
For the other job it is Superconductors.
On the wall is the brush drawing of Laura Mersini Houghton, the astrophysicist who understands string theory with words and in the math. My wife arranged for me, us, to have coffee with her and her husband Jeff. Jeff advises nations on issues of economic development.
There are a lot of things I need to know to most perfectly prevent the Apocalyptic Riot. I have 425 followers on Twitter. I beg them to tweet to John Kerry that he must find a resolution to the Economic War between the US and Russia.
This sort of thing comes to be necessary for me to do in my position as Founder of Transcendia, my Grand work of Conceptual Art. It is suppose to be my nation under my flag, of confederated international airports. The idea being that the ports being culturally neutral would be good places for trade that otherwise could not happen. This would moderate world economic disparities preventing some of the motive that cause war.
You are more likely to go to war with people you do business with than not, so the good can only come from Balance.
My art made and put in this show is divided from the work at some point because no one wants art that is not good company on their wall.
All cave art of animals and the pornographic pictures not shown, is good company. All of it is good company now even if some contemporary viewer didn’t like it simply because it survives.
Time has created from prehistory art a perfection.
For us to be great politically is for us to not be a finite species.
Good honest hard working artists must learn engineering. The tools they use become important. You cannot have perfection of the infinite. Then the goal becomes the only perfect thing about the work of conceptual art. The more people that understand the goals of the artist, then the more perfect it is and that is why a mere Andy Warhol signature is art.
Pop Art was part of the revolution.
Stalin was a revolutionary as well, but he robbed banks.

The Company that is the USA needs to kick out the betrayers of the People.

No Alternative

Lifesaver, it is in the house, not in the show, but It ought to go, and I will show it later.

The old songs of the greats are all anybody wants to hear from them, so they go paint or go round in circles fitting something new in now and then. I’m the Worst by Keith Richards is comparable then to Working Class Hero, which I am, and also the worst. Richards does have to point out that it has been 30 years since he was a junkie. He has a nice library.
Last night after the show I did some composing with the Alesis sound processor I got for marketing advises. I’m a consultant if anybody wants to actually know. I see my profile gets an average of 5 views a week. They seem to fail to notice I can’t really work at a regular job anymore since I am chronically ill and have an odd schedule dependent on the drugs for the chronic pain and destruction of bone and associated parts.
Most of my interests, like the exoskeleton were aimed at the work to do today. Now I have to admit they are therapeutic. Nice of me to think of useful things, even when it comes to pot. It is useful as it is or as it comes from the moslems who make nice hashish.
I did offer to debate theology high on hashish with Osama Bin Laden, as I know the brain mind condition achieved when that high.
Now I have music I have made to go along with it.
Politically from a Transcendian point of view, this is soft power.
Phd. Joey Fink was aware she was witness to history, at the opening of “Balance” my small show, in a small place, right suitable for jamming with the things I have made. It was a wonderful night because one of the Intendors ™ was broken just like real early rock and roll performance events. It will burn well, later.
Of course unlike the early days of rock and roll, my Intendor number 8 simply fell over and hit some brick of the incinerator. It’s wood is not good for the neck. Even flat though it does sure vibrate well. I have an idea.
What Ideas did Einstein have in his maturity?
When I went crazy from toxins from the infection, I was on a bad trip, and was prepared to come back from early experiments with my mind.
Once it was said to me in Rochdale that they had never seen anybody get so high, and still come back. So I could apply that early training and facility to the illness.
It came back fast, the hospital psychosis when I went in for the last hip replacement.
My first ambition was to be a psychiatrist. I believe that the cost and length of stay in the educational institutions daunted me.
They said I was the “coolest” guy they ever met, the guy on a bad trip in the Rochdale College Lobby I was guarding. I had looked him in the face. I had the same experience with Pagan our old scruffy cat, who mostly did a lot of hiding under the bed.
When she was dying for a good while, she looked at me in the face eyeballs to eyeballs for a protracted time and then for the rest of her life, the next six months, slept on the pillow next to my head till she went out and went somewhere to die.
We have never come across her body. She is with me.
Hell death had a better hand on me when my guts were all wrapped up and I was in incredible pain hunched up on the examination table. Dr. Dressen put me right without a colostomy bag, and I came back.
Hell before that I fell a story on a slab of concrete and broke my hip, pelvis, part of my hand. I was doing something stupid I had been ordered to do, and figuring it wouldn’t matter gone on to doing it till I fell in the hole in the floor.
I ought have insisted then it wasn’t my job, and it wasn’t the way it was done anyway.
They teach the hardheads that the boss is the boss. I do the job in my position as third electric as a third electric. Director I do my job as Director, and as third electric.
I loved the set etiquette of movie making said to be dysfunctional, for no one is supposed to “freelance” and the third electric does not speak directly to the Director.
In families no one speaks directly to each other either and it is supposed to be a problem in families, whereas it works on a film set.
Maybe there was a reviewer at the Opening. One man watched the show as if on assignment. I asked for that. I am desperate for reviews of my work. People in general need the authorities to point at me.
My required name of fame is my destiny to work for now. I put my studio back together different last night and this morning and made some recordings on the RadioShack recorder Alex recognized and smiled about.
I never thought at all ever that I would play guitar. Never. Now I see it is required of me. Making my own machine and tuning it my way means I get to play it my way.
Phd. or Doctor Joey as she needs to settle for as her new certificated name bought a copy of Poor Buzz & Stories from Warnings for my Daughter, and a copy of Death is the Title, or I slept on the Porch.
I need to finish up the paper version of The Revolutionary.
Meantime, I am Indending towards that Senate seat.
That’s the thing of time as you can get a statement of from the Readings from the Bible and the I Ching. Your statement is ready.
Make no plans for a life in Heaven. Death is a return to anonymity.

Ah, I spoke to Mary Ann, and the aspiring Engineer. I am so sorry I did not photograph. All of the best was missed by my camera. I was busy being me, the Old Man now.
In this life you need the same energy in put as a light bulb that says right on it it is a 60 watt machine. I think I am a 300 watt machine as like a light bulb. I may glow low and more pleasingly at a lower input, DC.
Remember I have a wife and a daughter, and now a grandson coming.
I may have had fun making any particular work of art, like the Intendors, or the Lifesaver, or Instructions, works of art. The price tag is there for those reasons of duty and responsibility to those around me and of me.
Pay me.
Far as the political visions coming from the one vision that works like a touchstone and prevents my stone cold atheism, I do not really want donations, but more want you to buy my book, so Doctor Joey, another Historian, was right to buy the two she got.
History is important to be written down. The collective minds competitions cannot raise us forward to more control of our environment if it is not available as a lesson. This is what the Durants say.
Just finished Lessons of History.
Now the thing to do is invest in superconductors, for they are the best of the possible magic bullets to get mankind through this bottleneck.
They give us the prospect of reducing demands for energy as there are too many of us clamoring for comfortable entertaining shelters and food.
Where I live in NC there is poverty at an unacceptable rate because the pseudo aristocrats in power despise the poor and want more poverty and desperation for them so the view they fix for themselves is not disturbed.
Did Caryle Group raise labor rates for the Aviation Ground crews at Atlantic Aero passed now from the Godwin family completely?
If not, they deserve to be shamed by the government of the people for they then are a stark illustration of the game taught in the business schools that all they are to do is to make sure labor does not get paid enough to do anything but work.
Is American Airlines now the biggest Front for the CIA and MI6? I can’t tell for sure.
Why won’t Guy Kawasaki mention Transcendia, and Transcendian Passports, to Sir Richard Branson?
I reviewed his book as requested. Took me three days of work and five rewrites to finally get it posted.
He says you ought ask for favors and ask for reciprocals. Then a No to me.
I said he was a nice guy too!

Why didn’t Panavision pay me for the concept of Panascout? The lawyer for them says they don’t think I can win. Panavision will see fewer rentals in NC because the bribes were discontinued by the GOP grasp of the Legislature. They have no idea of how the business works. I offered Panavision a marketing deal based on the aim at the use of the Panascout I Phone program that mimics the Cooke lens look of Panavision, which would bring later more rentals of the real cameras that give a standard great image that will make a movie a novel.

No. Kim Snyder has a Board to answer to. That is the reason given for no marketing contract to me. Me in NC. I’ve got my official DP credit on Mint Julep. I was afraid I wouldn’t get it. I am happier with Kathy Fehl and Ian Teal for that bit, though, why didn’t they make me DP for all of it? Money issues dogged them. I was badmouthed. Angelica didn’t get something she wanted? Jet Beach hasn’t been made.

Buy it.

My demand is that you tweet to John Kerry and demand a resolution to the Economic War with Russia. China just beat the US for major economy by crashing the company and making the US hurt for it. I have an indicator. I have one stock that lost a third of its value.

Raising interest rates will give Goldman Sachs and the rest of their kind an opportunity to take over South American businesses that have debts in dollars. The distortion of the banks allows for this. They are going on as before. US citizens are now again the source of millions and billions from the guaranteed loan debts as assets on the books that young propagandized students have taken on. HR departments reject any 40 year old experienced hands that have only meritocratic resume`s to offer. Academics are safe and the economies of college towns are safe.

The aim of the MBAs not to pay labor twists the equation around so that defaults on the guaranteed debt, leveraged to raise interest rates so the BRIC and Russian challenge to the Petrodollar Reserve status currency will crash anyone with a loan made in America. The stupidity of greed marches on.

If you need to borrow, borrow from your bank, a deposit bank that is playing by the old rule book that Roosevelt and his pragmatic capitalism put in place that worked till Clinton got his dick sucked by Monica.

The education of the labor force must be truncated and left in the realm of what is too hard and dirty for the youth of the industrialists children. That was the way of the original “Liberals” of “Free Trade” and Finance as the place of the children of the successful 19th century industrialists who also refused to pay the labor brought off the land that supported the to the factories causing a rise in Socialistic methods applied by them with their meager resources to the aid of their survival that was most pronounce in the cooperative of the town Rochdale.

I was Security and Editor of the Dissident Paper Ghetto News in Rochdale College Toronto, which likely was a front for Meyer Lansky in his waning days. Evidence implies there was money made from all the interior furniture and like that. Where exactly did the cocaine come from for the corrupted all the time from the beginning better hidden from me till recruitment times. Tests. Thefts and resale and gives to the Board.

A little microcosm of power and the hidden aspects. Regardless it is corruption that destroys the government you are invested in and dependent on. I myself couldn’t get a paycheck from some other enterprise unless I went deeper into the crime life, or was accepted as a “Landed Emiagrant” “Landed Immigrant”. I swear it looked like an e.

There is a file to pull out for the prospective producer too busy in Bangkok to think about it all now. I don’t want to think about it again.

I see my favorite hammer. The weather is so fantastic I feel a love of life that comes now in this greatest of Falls for me to ever see. I can walk and that wasn’t the case for a long time. No thing about living is taken for granted now.

Stupidity is a problem around every town. Acceptance of the blocks put in your path is supposed to be fine with you. Apparently that is the case. We are not allowed to show and sell art at our Local Community Airport, “Because someone would make money.” That someone is me these days. I look there at the sorts of people that can afford to fly private planes around, and it is not unreasonable for me to think they can spend more money than the average guy.

Up in Asheville they have a gallery at their airport. It sells productions of the local artists. Greensboro’s airport is to follow suit, if they haven’t already. I am expected to turn away from where I have been rebuffed, and go to RDU to get it sold. I want where I live to be a place where I get the same respect as others who make money in the common spaces. Certainly the contractors will make money from buildings of the highest quality to be the most impressive from Carolina North. If they plan out the airport without notice to the locals of a real thing to happen past the Big Lie they have told all for over a decade and even after Thorp said there would be no airport in Orange County, unless maybe something different is done.

You know and I know that working people get about 3 weeks to decide where to stay and what to do when their jobs are not available to them anymore. In fact it was reported at the beginning of the big collapse where the US citizens got put on the hook for all the gamblers losses as reinsurers of AIG which insured all the crap that was Derivatives and Credit Default Swaps, it was reported that there was nowhere West to head.

Heading North to Canada doesn’t work for me. It might work for you. Things are turning rotten up that way too. Population of NC has doubled since I was a High School Graduate. My defeats always returned me to dirty work that didn’t pay. I could do it all. Aviation was a used to be good job. Desperate for work lots of people went to it and the labor was cheaper and cheaper to buy by the big guy hucksters that put on a show out there throwing bags.

So what did I do but drift to making movies. That was a glamor job full of pretty people. They were Independents and cranked out stuff for Sundance for Art, and all the actors got more and more of their share. SAG takes care of their own. For IATSE the stagehands bring down the rates because they don’t get enough to strike in the first place. Especially in the South. Crew positions are cut and wages haven’t gone up in 30 40 years like the rest of the things to do for a paycheck which is all capitalism means to the average guy. The fact that all the Chinese know they work for the Company of China means they win on a subliminal level the American Citizen loyal in spite of themselves to all the different named Corporations who really use them as the Company and Army for them independent of the Company of the USA has no good coming for the common man.

The concept of Too Big To Fail is To Big to Fail What? and the Answer is the Company of the Country, the Company is the Country. It isn’t about soaking the rich, it is looking at the obvious benefits the disloyal companies get from misusing the people, for which they deserve to be forced to either pay, or leave and go join the company of China.

This and That/new Show

Maximum Effort

crayola crayon on panel, wood really.

“Balance” is the name I have chosen for my new show at the This and That Gift shop in DownTown Carrboro. It is sort of across from Spotted Dog and the Station, bar venue complex of Mike Benson collage and poster blues and rock and roll fame. I imagine solarization to free many of these local businesses from high electricity bills. I intend to find out what legislators are responsible for reductions in renewables support and targets, and have them shamed and voted out of office where they can continue hurting only those nearest and dearest to them with their ignorance and stupidity combined so deeply that any chimpanzees in charge of the future of NC citizens would do better.

The Opening coincides with ART Walk, which turns out to be 9/11. Islamist fundamentalists are known to like anniversary dates for repeats of great horrors of death and destruction, and we may all take little solace from defensive measures of the Department of Homeland Security. They are likely undercut by bureaucratic agendas independent of any common sense on the part of the secret services more intent on surveillance of us than of our enemies. But we can hope. Likely we are told so many lies claims of successes of “intelligence” officers that they have saved us from annihilation are more suspect than dumb luck.

Prevention of the Apocalyptic Riot gets harder and harder from where I am. I can hope that now that I have built some guitar like instruments to hold or strum or beat on with sticks, people will pay more attention to me.

Either way I need to write another artist statement. “Balance” is key to belief and disbelief. It is better to still be corny enough to at least be able to imagine Utopia. I said once that if you cannot at least imagine it, you ought not call yourself a human being. We all have this concept of ourselves as beings with destinies we are charged to fulfill, counter to what we are forced by the compromises of demands for the necessities of food and shelter that only possible when there is an excess of energy, and our leaders are truly wise we get the opportunity to follow out to fruition. I admire the traditional English working man, who is certain to have a serious hobby.

The work I do to prevent the Apocalyptic Riot, is simply not enough. You all must help me. I have the impression that only a tweet and multiples of tweets get any notice these days. If you all tweet that Kerry had better get on with resolving the Econ War with the Russians since sanctions lead to war, and since they could sell Iran weapons like a couple of “wrong invoice” thermonuclear devices as brothers of the Econ Wars the US in its pinnacle power aims at everyone that crosses eyes or sticks out there tongue as Israel like a small dog that gets its bigger buddy in fights clamors for more provocations barking in our own US Senate, Kerry had better figure out something or all of Distopia as seen in end of the world scenario movies will be our big surprise.

Strength Wisdom Beauty and Humor are intended as ingredients of life my work is aimed to inspire and confirm. Things I make for your wall, are intended to be as good company in your living room as I am.

I’ll try again tomorrow. Thanks

Working Class Corner

Mondale & Red Wife

(c) Russell Scott Day first time published here.

Finished Tuchman’s book about the Revolution. I am all over the port theory which you have to get when you read of war. The wireless, the ship to London out of the Mediterranean radios of the Royal Navy are some WWI things I’d like to see. I sent a note to the local Ham radio club asking if they would, or could work stations in the Ukraine for some real truthful news and views.

One stupid dream is 14, channel 14 in town and a radio net for the abandoned CBs. I’ve heard a few words over the GRS type fm little “Family” radios that are fun like binoculars at the beach. I had a hell of a time in Southport with some great guys from the Union, IATSE years. You think you will make the right connections somehow or don’t ever think of it from staying one place.

This whole car thing for me and Nancy is more grounding for me in Working Class issues. If I was more poor and working in mechanics or somehow connected we might at least know somebody would put it up for auction. I don’t know who could use the parts of the thing. I am made to think of my idea for gearing the parts of a trolling motor for an electric scooter. They can get a lot out of people being hard on them with all the regulations that can just be made unrelenting with all down the line having an excuse laid to the cops, “they”.

The garage inspection stations all like slick shown got it good for saying what you have to do to get legal. “They” been real strict. These things are so transparent to us on the edge with cash flow and undercapitalization issues.

AIG did pay the Feds back, but what did the working people get out of it all? If I am the reinsurer of AIG I want something for it. Remember the Spanish American War and how from talk the US didn’t even really get Cuba. Then Puerto Rico wasn’t enough. Nor the Philippines whose people were cruelly treated and the idealism of the American nation was shown hypocritical to the nationalists who expected better of America.

It was all about Ships. Ships, the big things that can blockade food and weapons. Won’t be long and Wing in Ground Effect Ferries will be big in conflicts with China. To have a competitor so fast between London and NY heavier lift than a plane in between ships will change things if we get a future. It would be good for Ferries to replace some bridges with sea level rise. Here in NC they are going to rebuild. Rebuild the Bonner?

Boeing makes a Pelican I think is what they call it. I suppose anything big flying off the water might do wing in ground effect. Likely they will hit an oil tanker I guess. Imagine that rush if they just fly just off the water?

It was the Mahan book that kicked it all off on into the Kaiser and big battleships. Barbara Tuchman was for the US to adopt the Parliamentary Government System because Cabinet members ought not be subject to so being fired, as they were by Nixon.

It is all on us the legacies of all these lifetime presidents and senators and congressmen and there are so many people who simply have no idea of what is going on. Then they are lied to and diverted by hairy Putin chests and she’s a grandmother and they have a car and a baby.

I’d have been dead and I take a lot of pills. 35 to 55 is the true reality of a working man’s best years. I can testify. It was like I was like what they were pushing as modern man’s capacity for long years of hard work till I wasn’t. I’d have to have the arm operation to get in some more years of a few hours without the need for more pills. I moved some things on the deck and my back because of no cartilage in the right arm is killing me.

I worked on the novel. It has a couple of reviews as it is, but this revised last time because I had to make it a paperback anyway will be a deserved rewrite.

My Political Book, the necessary Book from a politician is done as Poor Buzz & Stories from Warnings for my Daughter. I found the missing essay “We’re All in this Alone”. Barbara Tuchman was having some trouble with maintaining a Grand love for the USA. I can see why her favorite was A Proud Tower, though A Distant Mirror is really something. She sure knew what familiar century to pick, that one with the plagues and Pope wars.

I’ll show you my sward sometime. It is too heavy for me.
