The Reason for Transcendia

For instance nobody likes to do business with the Russians. If I was to go to Russia do do business, or to some Islamic nation, or some African nation, to do business, I would stay on the airport, and have people who wanted to sell things to me, or mine, come to me and deal with me on the neutral ground of the International airport.
Transcendia is simply building on that common strength of these airports where people know how to act. Transcendia would depend on international organizations and international laws and standards of behavior, and business.
I was inspired by my time in Rochdale College in Toronto. There are profound lessons I learned there. All the hallucinogenic drugs were legal there. They spoke out of two sides of their mouths on this issue. The Security Force became, or more rightly was corrupt from the get go, using the hippies naivete`so as to provide around them a shield for their criminal enterprises of high stakes gambling, and then the mobster drug cocaine.
Many began turning away from the mind expanding drugs and simple pot, towards cocaine, which was not fully understood in the early 1970s. It was not considered addictive, and it was a seductive drug for how it made many feel powerful. The criminals of Security then manipulated the supposed laws of Rochdale, stealing the coke from the less connected dealers, then kicking those dealers out, and giving the cocaine partly to those on the governing board.
I read the book

    Rochdale

by Brian Grieveson in which he makes light of this corruption. It made me angry for I nearly got thrown out a window when I tried to stop this corruption. I had tried to stop it by telling my mentor Lionel Douglas of it. In my latest book Poor Buzz & Stories from Warnings for my daughter, I include a story from those times and that place.
I had imagined that my nation of airports could be operated from taxes on pot, but recognized I would have to lead a war with greater powers in order to do so, and am not so idealistic to sacrifice myself knowing that I really don’t like or trust criminals.
Time has passed and now Washington State and Colorado are benefiting from legal pot.
It is a true horror that so many lives have been destroyed over the past 40 or 50 years in the prohibition of pot. That we allow this daily assault on hedonists?, regular people who use it, or used it as a folkway, is a sign that our world does not care as much at all about tolerance and justice as they say. For look at the horrors that flow out of this Drug war.
Better to write it than live it, and I can make up a war movie fought for control of cocaine transit airfields, instead of doing it and dying in combat, or having others die in combat over the coke transit airfields that dotted South America. Now they are sending robotic submersibles to Europe with cocaine, from what I can tell from what I see on VICE.
I did declare that pot would be legal on Transcendian airfields and have included the times from joint to joystick there in the passports.
Daily we see reports of working people trapped into wage slavery when their passports are taken from them. The Transcendia and Transcendian Passports, could be an aid to these people. Spies always keep more than one passport. You ought to as well have a spare to at the least be able to give away in hostage situations.
In fact I do not necessarily have to have any altruistic reason for the creating of a new nation. I simply by now, want to have my own nation, as my own creation to see what good can come of it.
It is not as if I ought to be, nor should you be particularly patriotic towards the US anymore. Certainly the powerful people of the world hold no patriotic feelings or loyalty towards any nation, and manipulate working people the same as the criminals of Rochdale, manipulated the hippies who were all full of themselves and their fashions, to enrich themselves.
Honest working people are made daily into suckers. The laws of the nation have been made so as to legalize the financial engineering pioneered by mobsters who coming out of Italy and Sicily had a long tradition of their family first.
Nation states have so been corrupted that they have in Japan given responsibility for the disaster at Fukushima to mobsters. The interior of Italy is a cancerous dump.
We hear little now about what the dumping of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean means to the food we take out of those waters. I have seen photos of mutated moths. This is the sort of thing I think TS Eliot meant by, “Not a bang, but a whimper.”
Sir Richard Branson is gleefully huckstering one new company after another, and is the great hedonist who calls himself a World Citizen. He has his own island.
Without the support of Virgin, it is right bleak for Transcendia. I and my construct exist independent of money and power.
It was, and may still well be that I have appealed for Station Agents and Pilots of Virgin to buy Transcendia Passports, and honor them for passage on planes they pilot.
Another reason that I continue to fail is the relative apolitical nature of pilots and people who live and work on the airports of our world. They can and do simply just go wherever they want, and do not necessarily need to support any particular nation.
So I can say that Transcendia is a great idea. It is mine, and I work at making you aware of what it might do to take up where the UN leaves off.
The passport could give regular working people papers they could use to live as World Citizens same as Sir Richard.
It could provide safe places for those of different cultures to do business. It could be a great example if it were uncorrupted and realistic.
We will not ever see a World Government. However Transcendia would be a government in the world.
This is a great strength of my concepts as a realist.
All I really have to do is make a 3D VR scratch and sniff war movie, as a replacement for the necessary war.
I used to like making movies.
They were like military campaigns, and I used military strategy to get them done.
Right now sitting here with my broken leg, going from one end of the house to the other isn’t much fun, and nothing much seems fun.
I can say that I discovered I was working class, which means I am essentially cannon fodder. My class has not united.
We cannot expect that the working classes will now all of a sudden unite. The fact that there is no ubiquitous UNTV channel shows that the UN is now a sideshow to be blamed for failures instead of being empowered to succeed at moderating the nature of our wars.
Working people don’t even know what they don’t know because their masters control the news.
In the Transcendia Passport I endorse Westminster Parliamentary Democracy, Roberts Rules of Order, The Airport Authority, and accept Godwin Anarchy as far as Defense and Education are the primary responsibilities and duties of a nation.
I don’t even want you to donate on the basis of what a great man, and what great ideas I have. Neither you nor I can feel that now. There is no fantastic playing of trumpets and a soundtrack that is heroic accompanying my time at my desk.
What I want you to do is buy a Transcendian or Transcendia Passport. It is after all my work of conceptual art, and is pretty revolutionary as it an I am spawned of the great ideals, and the great stream of good ideas that has been laid out for us to follow, if we want to be heroic and pure, and even realistic about what could be.

Another Inspiration

Last night my wife said she didn’t understand Transcendia. She said lots of people don’t understand me.
I have said over and over that there was a challenge to those of my generation to give our critics something better than what we complained about.
We were complaining about the US, which has a myth of freedom, equality, and meritocracy.
Many of us were attracted to anarchy and hedonism. As in any large group there were many who were simply against the Viet Nam war. This was reactionary. It was not revolutionary.
I had had a vision that I used as a touchstone.
I was inspired by the environment of the airport to build up the idea of a nation of airports. It was based as of utility on the idea that if there were a network of standardized ports operating according to the principles of the Declaration of Human Rights, safe for businesses to operate out of in every nation, economic disparities would be moderated.
As a pragmatist who admires William James, and then takes the word for its face value, I aim to build on what is shown as strong.
Port cities are strong. Airports give landlocked people opportunities for prosperity and power totally out of reach before the advent of the airplane. Everybody seems to know how to act on the airport.
A nation of airports operating according to best practices would be well positioned to take up where the UN leaves off. Even just to have Transcendian offices on all the international airports would help in certain instances such as when dictators of nations are causing unnecessary war because they are like trapped rats.
I communicated with Andre` Lewin who wrote the Points for Reinvention of the UN. For dictators whose administrations have run their courses, the airport can take them in and provide a sanctuary for them as Ambassador Lewin saw as needed and looked to Elba where Napoleon was ensconced. The fleeing dictators like Napoleon at the end is just one precept of points for the reinvention of the UN that Transcendia could take up.

UpDates

Transcendia and Transcendian Passports

The Insurodollar fixes lots of problems, giving labor leverage with capital.


Poor Buzz & Stories from Warnings for My Daughter was published by me Tuesday before last, and then I walked out the door to mail a letter. I slipped on the doormat and fell akimbo and broke my leg. It was my left leg. I broke it well. I didn’t involve my replaced hip. Both my hips are replaced and I didn’t want to damage them.
We changed a few of the pieces up in the show at the Carrboro Century Center Gallery. There will be another opening February 13 2015 during the normally operated Art Walk, when I will attend to be looked at and give another speech.
I need you to buy the art that I offer so that my wife and I can travel to NYC where I must attempt to sell, and sell.
I have suggested to someone in the arts community that artists who show locally are eligible to show in a gallery in the NYC market where much art is appreciated and bought and sold.
Far as the major interest you see in the local papers in building in Carrboro and Chapel Hill, there are some simple things to make policy.
The thing to do is build tall downtown and work to solarize the energy sources.
Next the thing to do is to get ahead on the transformational offerings in the wings represented by superconductor generators and electric motors.
In general I recommend that when buildings are to be considered the engineers be consulted. It is a surprise for me that Carrboro does not have an engineer on staff. Good leaders turn to engineers to return to them sound plans for the vital infrastructure they are responsible to their citizens to provide from their tax monies.
The power of the Zoning departments of the towns of the County have dramatic affects on who gets to share in the benefits of this valuable real estate. When the Zoning prevents housing to be built that will come in at rates of return that can be expected from the working classes, there is something rotten in the way things are set up, belying all the press and propaganda about the progressive and fair nature of governance in Carrboro and Chapel Hill.
I continue to object to the management practices of the University of NC at Chapel Hill regarding the airport, IGX, Horace Williams. It will be open as an asset for the University for the forever. The campus expansion called Carolina North may well be build over by Findley Golf Course.
The area that the airport occupies is a fine local location well situated for a number of employers. I would like to see a factory building enterprise set there to build modular units.
Chapel Hill and Carrboro will not ever have Fair Housing until there is a surplus. It is long past the time that lip service is paid to the needs of the working classes, while zoning prevents the creation of housing that meets those needs.
Honest working people deserve to be able to simply walk into town and find a place to live they can afford without doing more than filling out a rental agreement.
Further there is something ill about the idea abroad that honest working people, should be maneuvered into spending all their money on rent.
From the reports I have read, the money given Wall Street to save the economy from complete collapse has been manipulated and nationally the trend has been to use it to buy up all the land and force people to pay and pay till they are wrung out.
I am willing to run for office, and as I say so here now it is no more than a announced willingness to do so.
So there you have it, a little update. I discovered of a sudden that while I might want to be characterized as an intelligentsia, or a member of the Creative Class, that sort of label does nothing to change the fact that I became working class before I understood that was what happened when I became a self directed artist.
There were things that were roiling in the history of my life, that pushed me away from the ease of an academic life. I went to a fine Community College taking Audio Visual Tech, instead of the University for Fine arts, creative writing, political science.
In Rochdale College Toronto as part of Security I saw how devastating to the dreams of Woodstock Nation was the naive trust in the good nature of men. The corrupt prey on the naive.
There is more than one form of corruption as well. It isn’t just the allowing of thievery, and bribes to get ahead of the others, but that corruption of ideals of meritocracy and fairness for all who put their heads down and do the right things, but find at every turn their opportunities are stunted and blocked by persons of undeserved status and hypocrisy.
Don’t think for a minute it is not done to your neighbors who deserve respect regardless of their fortunes.

Show Photo of Founder’s art,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My beautiful picture
I made a mistake and put these photos on the post. Or in the post. This stuff was made by me. I am the Founder of Transcendia, which is my big time work. However I do other things besides sit around and write, and think.
Okay, I have sold some paintings. That is success isn’t it? I did some great work with crayons. I ought to use crayons more often. The key is to rub the hell out of the surface after you get the crayon on there. Burnishing is the technical term. “I pulled the wings off a fly” is the name of the success, sold for 35 dollars before I took a picture of it. Channel Wars sold to the same lady for 100.oo, though I ought to have waited to get 12 hundred for it.
I forget the price I put on “Truth is the Target”.
I went around and edge painted some things prior to the show. Some of the big things were impossible to show in this venue. Impossible isn’t really the full case. It didn’t work out.
I did price things according to how I felt about the execution and content, and not just the size.
Since there is little market for photographs and I’ve never locally been able to get for them much above cost, I didn’t rely on them for this show.
Well if I fail as an artist, which I don’t, for lack of sales is not actually the final word, I promise not to attempt to take it out on the world.
The point of Transcendia is to advance my class, the working classes, and through the document of the Transcendia and Transcendian Passports enable world citizenship for working people, not just the rich.
A nation of airports is necessary to moderate world economies. It offers some particular advantages to women really, for all are typically treated fairly well when on the grounds of international airports.
Let me aim to give a good speech at the opening.
I am fatigued.

Clean Slate

Clear Slate

Set Scene Slate
Empty Slate

Oh the things I learned.
Mostly I am at the age when lots of it is about relearning. I rephrase things as well. I rewrite things.
I have been rewriting the short stories. I collected them, and looked at them. There is something wrong with it. I have more work to do.
Last July I published the Transcendia Passport. I looked back and it was clear that the thirty 8 years I spent working on creating Transcendia, my model nation, was complete as far as the theories of governance.
Whatever works. Looks like of democracies Westminster Parliamentary Democracy works. William James said democracy is delicate.
Since Parliamentary Democracy lives longer than Presidential Electoral Democracy, I decided to go with that democracy. The US Bill of Rights works for me.
I would like it if it was more defended.
Of violations of the Geneva Conventions, I don’t endorse torture as a way to get information out of enemies. I will endorse the use of drugs to get information out of enemies, which is a violation of the Geneva Conventions.

There was another convention that made the militarization of outer space a violation. I’ve got it in my files. It is reported that there exists a secret satellite whose purpose is not known.

It is likely a Star Wars power ray. We do sort of need to know where all the submarines are. The submarines that are equipped with nuclear missiles are the most powerful weapons delivery systems, and if we were to see the elimination of nationstate nuclear weapons from our arsenals, it would mean we would be at constant war with those who might cheat.

I have no doubt that some organization would attempt to cheat when it comes to the power that can be attained from the possession of nuclear weapons. To me this means that we would need to deploy killer subs whose goal would be to sink any subs that might attempt to blow up cities like NYC.

We need to plan for peace, which means planning for war. Hopefully this will be enough for the apparent lust for war that is proven as a direction many many people take.

I know that great leaders turn to engineers to help with the solving of their most dramatic problems.

Subject Change: I have been trying to keep up with Noam Chomsky. I watched his debate with Alan Dershowitz. I focused my thinking on Israel and Palestine.

I decided that to create an disincentive for both parties to kill each other I could suggest a skew of the Insurodollar. That would be that in either the two state or one state solution, all Israelis and Palestinians would be insured by the national insurance company. If then civilians were killed by Israelis or Palestinians, the insurance company would have to pay death benefits.
Property destruction would allow require the Insurance company to pay for the restoration of destroyed homes and other real property.
Dr.? Mr. Professor Chomsky did allow that this was a good suggestion. He properly was not very encouraging. He indicated getting people to consider the concept would be very very difficult.
I intend to make at least two speeches this year. I’ll include the suggestion in at least one.
If Transcendia had borders under its control, and army I might be allowed to speak at the UN about it.

Subject Change
My wife arranged for me to meet with Laura Mersini Houghton and her husband Jeff. I could not have met a couple more perfect to recruit for the establishment of Transcendia. Transcendia, and myself have had two goals. One was to prevent apocalyptic riot. The nation itself is to serve as a moderating influence, and be capable of taking up where the UN leaves off.
I always attempt to build on strengths. Of the remnants of civilization we have in the world, international airports stand out. My early studies of sociology indicated that port cities are most tolerant of different cultures.
As we see today, most all people as individuals, act properly at the airport. To fulfill the stated need for an exile island, as is part of the Points for Reinvention of the UN, written by Andre` Lewin, Chairman of the French UN Association, Transcendia, as a nation of airports, could well fulfill this need for a place to which failing leaders, could run.
Typically they run to the airport as it is.
This is another case of my attempt to build on a strength that already shows up whenever governments fail. Just as in my art, as a writer, I try to leave you a way out, physically one is not wise to trap those with powers of violence if cornered.
As a leader I intend with Transcendia to give all World Citizenship. This is a function of the passport. Since we are now all supposed to become spies, then as any good spy, we all need two passports.
I resent it that World Citizenship is declared a characteristic of the life of Richard Branson, but is some status clearly denied many many honest working people. Just the day before yesterday I heard that workers on the Abu Dubai Olympic Village were trapped into slave wage and slave like working conditions as forced to surrender their passports to the contractors in control of them.
I, through the creation of my passport have created an alternate passport document.
Getting it to be taken seriously as more than the evidence of a work of conceptual art, is a serious difficulty if I am to stay close to my pledge to create the nation without the resort to the normally necessary war.
I draw on the strength of the arts as illustrated by the lands controlled by Disneyland. While I was inspired by Pan Am, the resolution of the earlier Opium Wars that created the legally recognized and obeyed rule of Hong Kong, and Woodstock Nation, it is the precedent of Disneyland that is most powerful for my purposes.
If the Vatican is allowed to so influence the UN, I see that Disneyland ought to warrant a seat as well. As a governing power, Carl Hiaasen pegs it as a Plutocracy in his short book,

    Team Rodent. Be that as it may, Disneyland has a great deal of influence on the perceptions of the world’s children. Every nation now knows that it must inculcate its mythologies, its heroes into the minds of the children, and that once that is done, they maintain their concepts of who it is to admire and what ideals to follow for the rest of their lives.
    I want for my passports to have a bureaucracy run as a side business of ramp rats, and station agents working on all airports. I want the pilots that fly freight and passengers all over the world to give passage for free, or as possible for those who need to be able to go where they are able to find their place.
    So far I feel well ignored by the successful hedonist Sir Richard Branson. I guess I’ll have to invade Necker Island where he and Elon Musk are planning on being neighbors, far as I hear.
    Possibly there is another island on which they plan to hole up as the world becomes more and more desperate. Elon Musk has clearly said that when the world is sufficiently terrible, Mars will become more attractive, and as refugees of Old Europe became desperate to sell all their things and move to the New World, so people on Earth will see Mars as a sane place to go.
    Governance of Musk Mars has never much been mentioned. What exactly Mr. Musk has in mind for the citizens of Mars, doomed to live inside, or forced to wear quite elaborate protection when going out might ought to be understandable. When I asked an anarchist if he thought anarchy would work for people on Mars, he didn’t much hesitate in his negative answer of “No”.
    No, he didn’t think anarchy would work for people on Mars.
    The standards for airports are that they are beholden to the governments that own the lands that they are on. Then for the day to day, they are operated by best practice Airport Authorities.
    In fact not all that many of us really want to be politicians. Al Franken said when asked if being a US Senator was as much fun as working on Saturday Night Live, and answered, “Not even close.”
    Personally, if I did not feel that it was necessary for me to contribute the thoughts directed towards a political solution to the pressures building that could well trigger what I now call Apocalyptic Riot, I’d do something else.
    My sister thinks I ought to just write it up as science fiction. I used to make fun of myself as grandiose, but lost all fictional distance from Transcendia, except for the idea of a 3D Virtual Reality, Scratch and Sniff War Movie, and War Game, as proven to be powerful enough when viewed in light of the limited success of Disneyland.
    I do have 64 pages of the movie, but am bogged down with the war. I have been trying to finish another book. I needed something to do for my own satisfaction. There is Jet Beach, ready to be produced in near total from the screenplay you can buy on Amazon. The Revolutionary isn’t that difficult to turn into a screenplay, and has a valuable lesson in there. That being that anarchy often leads to isolation and despair. Anarchy is only perfect when it is perfect, as for it to function well, everyone must be a very well educated person, and further share the same vision and goals.
    Alcoholics Anonymous works as the most robust functioning anarchy I know of. It’s goals are very limited, and its success rate among the individuals who join runs to about 30 percent, at best. The thought prompts the question: Is human nature diseased, and only to be moderated by government?
    Sadly we do not see the UN as succeeding in preventing wars. Gladly we can look at the organizations of the UN as vital and functional. I am thinking of the International Organization for Civil Aviation, and the World Health Organization.
    Most dramatic of failures of the UN, in my judgement, is that it still hasn’t claimed space in TV land. We really really ought to get UNTV in there presenting truth and education, and even entertainments on our standard, normally running televisions.
    It is nearly astounding that the majority of people don’t even seem to question that the UN does not produce a competitive television channel.
    The attempts I made to change that definitely wore me down and proved that I’ll probably be a dead failure before I succeed in changing that.
    I can’t remember why someone called screaming a message for my phone from the UN Foundation over my attempts to achieve this goal. I am now struck with details of the events of the creation by Al Gore of Current TV, and its subsequent sale to Al Jazzera. What that story would indicate is a slide towards and uncaring attitude on his part about anything to do with aid to the world, and benefits to his personal fortune from his forays, into show biz.
    Whatever happened, it is clear to me that an airline and a television channel, are not much different in the marketplace from an airline. Such information and insight is valuable to someone, I imagine. Some people can write entire magazine articles about such things.

Defense of Slavery Monument to the loyal & stupid


You need to be loyal and obedient to the loving overseer with the whip because from him all kindness flows. You need to defend your lands from the invaders intent on destroying slavery, which competes with paid labor, and you know to be paid and have money of your own means you might spend it unwisely, better to let the richer more educated take care of all that thinking.
You were born to aid in the defense of slavery.

Now they even put electric fans out there on the golf courses where you might stop to hit the ball. Everything is fine.

Whenever there is a gas leak from gas pipes, it is fun to go and watch. Something might happen. There could be an explosion. Nothing much happens in small towns, so you need to get close to any potential explosion, so you can say something about it.
Don’t worry, everything will be fine.

Buy and use a passport from me.


By 1978 I had determined that it was not going to be possible to change the United States into the myth of itself. I began to work on government, and made from the rewriting of the AA 12 traditions an anarchy that was supposed to work. I thought anarchy was great. Later I decided anarchy to be successful, as it can be for about 30 percent of the people who join, is only perfect when it is perfect, and while the AA anarchy is self perpetuating and based around the disease of alcoholism, a government has more than one disease and threat to deal with.
Finally after study, I determined that the Westminster Parliamentary Democracy was preferred because of Democracies it was most robust, as a democracy.
Then after awhile I determined that most people don’t want to have to participate and work at government so much. There are airports that are associated and run well for the benefit of people living around them. They have Airport Authorities that are run by bureaucrats.
Since the airport is typically the most civilized place around I decided a Westminster Parliamentary System of Democracy with a day to day Authority doing what the mandate is of promoting trade and travel, ought to work.

Just Thinking

When I was writing about how to use the I Ching and the Bible Readings together to get a full sense of time, your own time and the time as it was in season and spirit, I seemed to have picked up readership in China.
The series of posts appeared under the name Transcendia War Commentary, and were part of Popwars.com. (I am forced to capitalize by the system here.)
Transcendia works well as the name of a nation and many seem to have accepted my existence as if I had more powers than I do. There were announced moves of China to block certain sites. It is similar to the way signals from VOA, or the BBC were jammed during the Cold War.
There is every indication that my writings were eliminated from what might be available in China.
I stopped soon thereafter getting solicitations to purchase old used fuel trucks and tugs from Chinese sellers. I mean after the announcement that more writings were being blocked.
It appears that there in China amongst the ostensible Communist there is a fear of Confucius. I’ve heard that Chinese leadership wants to wipe out consciousness of the past amongst its peoples.
I don’t know that much about them really. It seems they work a lot. Conformity is valued. From the stories of factories and dorms for the people making parts and phones for Apple computers, it sounds a good bit hellish.
I am saddened that around the world the honest working person is so disrespected and considered unworthy of a free life.
Just work, and shut the fuck up.
The collusion between the corporations in the world with the state capitalists that deny access to information is a crime to my mind.
I self published The Revolutionary, and other works, and intend to publish more.
It is sort of incredible that Communists would fear me enough to block me.
Independent bookstore don’t buy self published works. Distributors don’t buy self published works.
So what are they worried about?
In this season I at least want to provide some humor.
I’ll think of something.

Humor

Joe Mullen

This is Joe Mullen who managed gently the performers and people of The Comic Strip in FLL 1982 or so.

The photograph is of Joe Mullen who was the manager of the Comic Strip in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where I worked out on Monday nights as a stand-up comic.
It was probably taken in 1981. I was working at Business Air Center as a lineman, and Line Chief, or line supervisor. I had very little money. Still I was able to stretch it somehow long enough to be there when I was allowed to try and be funny.
The prompt for my own attempt at being a stand-up was that I heckled Eddie Murphy during his set there at the most extreme till he told me he was on stage and I wasn’t.
As an act of integrity or shame, I felt it important that I go on stage and do the work myself.
The rule was, and likely still is that you can workout, try to do stand-up till the red light is flashed, and then you must get off stage.
I did obey that rule.
There is no death like dying on stage as a stand up. I became physically sick hours before I was to go on stage. I learned quickly that you must rehearse your material because when the lights go on and you are on stage, your brain will basically be wiped of anything not firmly set in it enough so that brainless you will speak what you have memorized.
Unlike the actor speaking lines written, where the audience sits respectfully and watches and listens, you will be heckled. Then even you will be best to have some responses of standard utility, though you will also be called to think on your feet.
I died terribly on stage the first three times I performed.
I once compared it to being electrocuted.
It certainly hurt.
Mr. Mullen, who I remember as a gentle man, took the time to speak with me in the kitchen.
I may even have taken the photo at that time.
It is a photograph of a very very good man.
I worked as well for awhile at the Barn Dinner Theater outside of Greensboro, and was kitchen aid.
There was a fine black lady Grace who worked in that kitchen. It was a theater. There was drama that went on in the kitchen. Without the kindness of Grace, the place would have failed.
So I say there is great truth in the kitchen.
Some blues song goes, “You better come on in my kitchen…”
So there I was in the kitchen with Joe, and he looked at me and he said, “Russell, Sex is funny, but love isn’t.”
I got much better after that. I got to the point that I could do a pro set of 45 minutes.
I did Yuk Yuks in Toronto, and was asked back. The other manager didn’t like me.
Somehow, somehow I came to the attention of staff at David Letterman, and was asked for a tape.
Margaret Hannah was the name of the woman who asked for a tape. I sent in a tape.
I was rejected. It was painful. I believe it was after that that I essentially gave up.
There have been other stories of my life with similar ends.
I can take it.
I am the old man now.
If there is one thing to keep, keep your humor up, somehow.
Sex is funny, but love isn’t.

Cuba

Cuba has a good deal of nickel. Maybe the US needs nickel.
When I lived and worked in Florida I was closer to Cuba, and the company had a contract to deliver people, diplomats to the Cuban Interest.
My friend flew people over there from Fort Lauderdale. All the TV was propaganda, and not much fun to watch. You could get silver coins in change, and find some real collectables.
There was something about a roll of film.
By now most people know they have a lot of old cars.
They just finished building a big seaport upgrade.
For my friends in the aviation freight business, what new opportunities to make money that appear, I hope will provide more stable jobs.
I hope of course that the Transcendian and Transcendia passports will be honored, and sold by ramp rats and station agents all over the world.
We of course, who are working class, have as much right to be “World Citizens” as Richard Branson.

This note, 1000, well print it out and spend it, write a deal memo on the blank back.

The Show

The show starts as to be installed on January 5th at the Carrboro Century Center Gallery. I will aim to perform a worthy speech. A speech worthy of 38, 39 years of study focused on how to make Transcendia a desirable nation to join.
The Passports were issued, published in July. I have discovered that no major distributors will touch self published works. I used the opportunity offered by Amazon’s createspace.
Independent Bookstores see anything enabled by Amazon as not to be supported either.
I am not the only one who rushed forward and made books, put them out for sale, and finds that social media doesn’t drive sales.
I went to the bank and asked them to send someone to buy some art from my show. They won’t. They have a policy of not buying any art.
The local government touts the arts. ART ART ART, a great civilizer?
No art is not a civilizer, but a sign of civilization, as made with excess energy.
The energy runs out for me.
I told the local airport manager what I wanted to do and he said the University would not allow such things.
Go to Raleigh he said.
I don’t like to drive anymore.
