he's probably a good person and all, but seeing as how your initial relationship had him in loco parentis it would be kinda messed up to cross the line. no? i mean you can worship his image from afar as your notion of an ideal man maybe, and be happy for having that image, but in realtime no wai. don't literalize the metaphor.

once I have my legit own place and don't sublease, I will. I don't have room to make it where I am.

and yeah... i tell myself don't get too hung up. just hard to not compare anyone to him when I really should be happy to have something close to a legit relationship with a non batshit crazy guy.

how was your day?

I saw this AI twitter that tries to describe random photos earlier today. it's generally accurate, which is pretty exciting. also scary. I fear a cylon rebellion one day.

well see you're comparing a real human to an ideal-- an ideal never farts in bed or shits his shorts or says stupid shit or gets dandruff. it's fine to have ideals, as long as you realize they're not real people.

me, i'll never have sex with monica bellucci-- and that's okay

i meant that I tend to get on with guys who idealize me. this makes me sound egomaniacal but the last guy I was involved with often told me i was his princess and he wanted to "rescue me" and no tja ks dude.

i also girl crush on jessica chastain. i'm a sucker for red hair.

you can sit and ask me "BUT HOW DOES IT KNOW??" when i try and explain self driving cars to you, and you can ask me this over and over again until you nearly crash your own, these things actually exist.

nothing in the brain that makes you special or supernatural and that cant be replicated as machinic function.

adapt or whine bitches.


yes, maybe a robot could do my work, but could it also smoke thousands of cigarettes during breaks? I mean, i got philip morris on my side! He'll secure my income so can buy his product and smoke myself to death, no?

well, right now i'm more worried about humans, french humans. We have a lawsuit running against the republic of france, who is suing us and wants us out.

i'd line me up some interviews...


good advice! I have some options where I could start working if current place goes to shits. but then you can never have enough of these options.

alternatively you could go on vacation.

or-- you could look for some temp work replacing someone somewhere and make some money while the place reopens.



okay. i have to get to work but i'll reread & reply.

I stopped watching movies and tv shows (at least I like to think that). But yeah, watched the wire twice. good stuff.

I did read for a while though. Thomas Bernhard - don't know how familiar people outside german speaking countries are with him.... you'd like!

“We must allow ourselves to think, we must dare to think, even though we fail. It is in the nature of things that we always fail, because we suddenly find it impossible to order our thoughts, because the process of thinking requires us to consider every thought there is, every possible thought. Fundamentally we have always failed, like all the others, whoever they were, even the greatest minds. At some point, they suddenly failed and their system collapsed, as is proved by their writings, which we admire because they venture farthest into failure. To think is to fail, I thought.”

Then I made spätzle. Turned out fantastic.


went to practice space to play with my new duo project. not sure if that project is a good idea...
she's awesome

ha ha no, that's not what i meant. i don't know her as a person-- i only know her as an ideal, a mythical creature, a goddess of sex. if she ever showed up in real life and wanted to get it on, i'd probably run away-- you've read the greek myths and you know what happens when one has intercourse with the gods-- always some horrible curse (maybe worth it though, ha ha, but still...)

i'm going to make a wild connection and say: what those greek myths illustrate is teh danger of literalizing metaphors. there was a jungian guy who wrote a book about paranoia and he wrote that this mental illness is at its core the inability to entertain metaphors as such.

so my monica bellucci is a metaphor-- for what? all kinds of earthly pleasures. but i can't have actual relations with a metaphor. if i were to interact with the real person, the metaphor would be destroyed and she'd be just another human (granted, an uber-hot human, but what if she's actually dumb and annoying? better not to find out.)

i don't know--see what i wrote to suchfrenz above.

another story:

i had this girlfriend, well not exactly a girlfriend because it was a partially illicit thing (she had a fiance... in another country). anyway she was a novelist. a really good one too at the time (she ruined it by growing up and becoming a professor).

we'd ride the bus together to her place and the bus would go past some old looking building that housed this bar/restaurant that looked like from the 50s/60s. it looked a bit fantastic and out of place by a strip mall. she'd make up all kinds of stories about the place, and dream up characters who'd hang out there. the dream of the place was part of our shared world and secret code. and then she'd say she wanted to go there some day.

i loved hearing her fantasies and looking at the place from the bus, and make up things about it, but always resisted going and said so many times and in so many ways: no, the place will never live up to those expectations; i'd rather have the dream of the place as you imagine it to be and be happy with that.

eventually we went there because she wanted wanted wanted to go, and she always got what she wanted. and the food and the beer were good, and it was a nice place for its sterile surroundings, but she was obviously disappointed that it was so pedestrian. of course!

some people don't know how to entertain a healthy fantasy life and end up plucking its feathers and twisting its neck.

and things didn't work out with her in the end.

--

ps- i don't know if the pm was sent to me? i never got any.

Personally im very spiritual about sex so i can't have sex with fantasies or mythical sex goddesses.. if i don't have a substantive connection with a woman as a person and if our intimacy is not deeper than biology im just into it. Getting to know a woman through our bodies is what turns me on, just empty fucking does get me off..
