Nouns Kill

"The moment you make it a noun, you kill it. The moment you make it a noun you stop its growth. Nouns don't grow, only verbs grow"


Reminds me of Taoism again, Witter Bynner did one of my favorite translations:

Existence is beyond the power of words
To define:
Terms may be used
But are none of them absolute.
In the beginning of heaven and earth there were no words,
Words came out of the womb of matter;
And whether a man dispassionately
Sees to the core of life
Or passionately
Sees the surface,
The core and the surface
Are essentially the same,
Words making them seem different
Only to express appearance.
If name be needed, wonder names them both:
From wonder into wonder
Existence opens.


ONE-DER names them both...


A friend told me today, he seeks to try to think in patterns unused, untaught to him by media. To stop seeing relationships through the eyes of Mickey's minions. To feel the little things, the sand beneath your toes, speak to yourself in song and poetry. How much of your internal dialogue is plagiarized? Not that you cannot repeat words that inspire, but are they words of truth, by an author of virtue and re-noun?

PSA - Best News Ever?


"You said you were going to give a speech, about what?" <Smirky face> "Something like this, but more wholey."

"Wholey? You mean holy?" she was unamused; trying to give an epic speech, people often get caught up in the semantics, the spelling...

Guess I do too...


I met a girl at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors...


"What were we talking about again?"

A gain...

"God only knows..."


The Speech! Right, we'll get to it...

One Month's Time

I have lost the plot, haven't said anything in awhile, in a weird place now...

A girl told me, one I thought I would marry, about The Doors... of opportunity, much like the doors of perception, I'm sure...

The Law of Rhythm... Another man told me, about life like a pendulum, push it one way and it's bound to come back. Everything is like the ocean, tides high and low.

Many doors open, often at the same time, leaving you to choose. The Girl said, she often sits back to ponder, which would be best? After waiting too long, she is left running through the last door as it closes. The best opportunities are often the fastest closing doors. May be...


"Looking for love perhaps? You did get broken-up-with today" Brian typed to his Laptop.

"...You push and pull and you tell yourself no..." Spotify replied.

Semantics I s'pose, she spoke the whole time, I seldom listened closely.

"How relevant!" I chuckled. Those little coincidences made him believe. 


Are you speaking in the first or the third person?

"Depends, talking to the ego or something beyond?"

Alright bro, don't be a dick, just post some pictures why don't ya?


"Always buy her flowers. She doesn't really like flowers, but she's always on a diet. Don't tempt her with Lady Godiva"


"It's like Mad Max... Go running, looking for paradise lost. Then you just go back, into the fire."
...Don't be a hero?


"It's like flying over a circuit board. As above, so below... Check this video out, if you please:


"Why the sunset? Why not dawn?" 
Snooze ya lose...
And don't show them all your cards! Be mysterious, speak volumes with the light, your gaze, your silence. You can hear plenty with your eyes!
"Yada yada, hear with your eyes, talk with your silence. Such a pompous motherfucker!"


"I haven't forgotten about you..."


"So what the hell are you doing in Israel anyways? You're in the UK now? Right..."

"I'll get to it, just wanted to say hi first..."

Picture Books

A picture says a 1,000 words, so maybe I should just shut up?

Sunset last night with some rare clouds. Heavenly, no? Heaven always seems to be cloudy, but I guess you're on top of them, so it's not cloudy? hmmm

A local plant, not the finest example, but pretty none-the-less... Interesting expression, no?

In spite of that; nevertheless, here is another pretty planty-tree shrub life form. Yea, I dare you, correct me, its actually a HΓΌpungoshoot*

And a local bird posing for a picture... Should the captions be on the bottom of the picture; is this actually a long title?

The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named is not the eternal name
The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth
The named is the mother of myriad things

Thus, constantly free of desire
One observes its wonders
Constantly filled with desire
One observes its manifestations

These two emerge together but differ in name
The unity is said to be the mystery

Mystery of mysteries, the door to all wonders

Kitties! Internets love these right? This one doesn't look to happy to see me...

This one was a bit more friendly, but it turned out to just be a beggar.

Here's a couple sheks, go buy yourself some vodka ya drunk!

This one was having a drink of ol' Robert De Niro, until I stopped to take a picture. Something similar happened back in Moscow when I tried a picture of a breastfeeding mother. only kidding!

Au-Natural - The Alleyway Next Door 

Am I the only one who thought it was Next Store? A New York accent thing? Maybe it is next store, maybe it's both! Where my emoji to properly express my emojions?

Too bad this isn't What'sApp - Where you can choose the race of your emojions.

Guess we're stuck with a confused preppy white kid (he's wearing a polo) and a confused Asian girl. And hold your horses! Nay! lol God's horse joke? Or did the word 'Nay' for 'No' develop because horses don't want to be held. But I was about to complain about when I search Google-Overlord for a picture of a 'confused child' the first two are a white prep and an asian! 

Another beautiful flower - Don't these phones take nice pictures. Out now the new smart-camera from Apple! It's so smart, you can even use it as a phone!

Let's go sleep in a line!

And finally, the flower(s) - (s) because I might not have anything to say about the next one...

Ewww!!!! What's that shriveled up one doing there!!!! GET THAT ************* OUTTA HERE!

Tonight's Sunset - Heavenly In Deed - Clouds and All!

I was listening to a gnostic lecture, the guy comments on the ego, look up and Rob Lowe and behold!

Interesting story about the Egoz, but I'll spare you...

Tony Hawk Softcore Porn

Fancy Apartment

Nice spot by city center... yea I'm tired...

Aw, here it goes!

It was Simchat Torah the other day, the Old Testament ends and begins again...

"And this is the blessing wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death." *** "And God blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it; because that in it He rested from all His work which God in creating had made."

Crazy Pills

Well it's 4:30 in the funking morning after a night out in Tel Aviv. Another event with smoking hot ladies and expensive drinks, my favorite pastime, no?

So I get home and have a roundabout conversation with the ladies about the ladies. We soon realized why women win arguments... I digress

... and there I was, reading a slice of NEWS before bed to tickle my mind grapes, just thought I should share...

Excerpts from a headline one

How 'exercise in a bottle' may soon be a reality: Scientists map 1,000 changes that physical activity causes in the body to create drugs that have the same effects!

Lead researcher Professor David James, of the University of Sydney, said: 'Exercise is the most powerful therapy for many human diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and neurological disorders.
'However, for many people, exercise isn't a viable treatment option. This means it is essential we find ways of developing drugs that mimic the benefits of exercise.'

O, wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't!

- John the Savage quotes The Tempest

A more different headline two

Why China Is on an L.A. Spending Spree: "It's Just Monopoly Money to Them"

"$20,000 on drinks is a plain night on the town..."

In 2014, a full 20 percent of the city’s $8 billion in real estate sales was purchased by Chinese buyers.

 “They’ll buy high-end watches in threes and fours,” says Korosh Soltani, owner of Rodeo Drive jewelry store David Orgell, of his Chinese clientele, who’ll typically drop $200,000 on gifts in a single shopping spree. 


Laugh out loud! Isn't it all just classic! 

What I'm trying to say is.. yea another zoolander reference

Oh my dear god, I just read another news story... got to stop it with this news! Out with the news and in with the Old Swipe! Love without screen! 

Lost World Jurassic Plot

Thursday, October 1, 2015


We went out tonight, it was our one month anniversary. We bought cheap wine, and drank it through sunset and moonrise.

A local bar, dancing, drinking, aimless flirting...

We came home, and talked about life, got real low. Amazing life, lots of questions, a long test...

Multiple choice, short answer, document based question...

A young woman asked me, ""

Document I - Excerpt

I take it you are referring to the Ludovico Technique?

I don't know what it's called, Father, all I know is that it gets you out quickly and makes sure that you never get in again.

That's not proven, 655321. In fact, it is only in the experimental stage at this moment.

But it is being used, isn't it, Father?

It has not been used yet in this prison. The Governor has grave doubts about it and I have heard that there are very serious dangers involved.

I don't care about the danger, Father. I just want to be good. I want for the rest of my life to be one act of goodness.

The question is whether or not this technique really makes a man good. Goodness comes from within. Goodness is chosen. When a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man.

I just want to be good...

I remember now... I said that you need to give what you have, to give love, compassion, kindness...

To become like God, the Kabbalists would say, the ultimate source of giving...

I mentioned giving to charity...

She responded, "But don't you get a selfish sense of satisfaction that you did that?"

I mentioned the animal spirit and the spirit of man... or perhaps I would have, had I not imbibed.

and I thought...

We are more than a clockwork orange

I reread my prior post, perhaps I have lost you with the rambling...

 For the purists - I am aware this is the incorrect usage of the aforementioned quotation 

... and the jumping around...

... but no one has said anything yet, zero comments, perhaps I am all alone here? 

Maybe you just want the usual jazz, let's give it the old college try...

YAWN... Here goes NOTHING!!!!

oday was Friday, the Fourth of September. I had only just arrived in the Holy Land a few nights prior, still a bit shaken from the jetlag. I hardly could sleep and awoke hour before dawn. I wandered, mentally and physically, my new dwelling. A mind relocated and with the body; a slow waltz through my near penthouse apartment. I spent the morning energy texting a girl with whom I had spent many a fortnight. We toyed with yet another of the countless flirtatious subjects, that filled the vast playroom of our little world. She soon went to bed as the sun spun round to my neck of the woods.

It was a new dawn, around 6. I could check the Farmer's Almanac for an exact moment; a thought reminding me of my past life. A kabbalist once told me I was a virgo, too concerned with minutiae, missing the forest through the trees. It reminded me of my past life, as an exchequer in New Amsterdam. 

It doesn't matter now...

I watched the sunrise in the East, the land of Nod, where Cain had settled. I thought of my brother in the West, as I listened to the timpanis of nature sizzle the moisture from the skillet.

Soon after I set out for the dunes overlooking the sea. I walked to the south, up and over, through and through, in search of the perfect spot. There were many a beautiful flower along the way I had yet to see. 

I looked out to the horizon, admiring the happy go lucky riding the waves into the sandy shores. I admired the effortless grace. When in Rome...

I turned round and headed north, to the shopkeep Lee Gal, to inquire of his wares. I sketched some more of the sights in my notebook.

A luxurious new inn, perhaps my compatriots could stay in one day...

A tower by the northern shore under renovation...

and finally I made it to his business.

I was greeted by a young man smoking a cigarette who proceeded to extinguish her and lead me inside. His philosophy was a bit, how do you say, below me, perhaps?

I headed south to my next shop, Las Olas, Zach had christened it. As I approached I saw him out front, cleaning an inventory item. We shook hands and I told him my story. 

"I have only done this once before." 

He nodded and pulled Excalibur from the racks, I handed over my purse and he prepared her, setting hilt and sheath. A blinding golden ray stuck the blade and sent me turning towards the door. 

A slender blonde walked in and I smiled at my dropped jaw I had noticed in the reflection of her aviators. A french woman, Zach's wife, and my new chaffeur. We chatted as we rode back to my humble abode. 

I told her I pondering meeting a french woman and one day living in Paris. She advised against it. I told her my Russian barber told me to stay away from the Israeli women. She chuckled.

I reached the 9th floor and entered, meeting my new found mates, who were ready for something. It was only noon.

To be continued...

Total Recall

Looks like we've fallen behind, but nothing is lost...

Just a few snippets until I get bored and recap the last few weeks.

A word from ego maniac prime...

A face from Pep, in awe of absolute splendor...

And perhaps a few pictures of things I've seen along the way...

On second thought, don't let all the cats out of the bag all at once...

Is that saying correct? Google-Overlord says it's a long story, don't worry about it. But it's true, it's hard to get the cats back in the bag.

Reminds me of Pikachu...

Which reminds me of yesterday, a childhood paradise!


T'was Yom Kippur and/or a city wide block party for kids, and myself, since our lord and savior...

Once said, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

Well on second thought, it's just a bunch of hearsay, Matthew, quoting Jesus, reinterpreted by like a bunch of dudes... So who knows! But if it's in my Google search...

So there I was, in the citywide block party, no cars, perfect pavement... Why doesn't America consult the Israeli Consulate of Asphalt, shits holy, not potholy, HA! I proceeded to tear up the streets on my brand new...


PICTURE JOKE - Time to open up ol' photoshop

The marketing team was running out of funding (time=money) so they decided to stop there. Perhaps next week they will incorporate more brand building slogans, like this one, still being tested in focus groups. 

Bunch of bloody spacemen... FOCUS DAMNIT! How about...


Eh, maybe we'll just get a celebrity and fuck the whole slogan thing.

And Bill Murray Saidth, "I'll drink to that!"
And they did, and it was good, despite only being 9:30 in the morning
- Book of Brian 1:1


Let me go grab my bottle of wine real quick... AHHH - Does red wine go bad after being uncorked?
Hmmmm, deep philosophical questions this morning...

But I digress


I got the Penny Hoverboard, and it's bloody awesome! I almost got a chinese knockoff, the <insert arguably racist and/or insensitive mistranslation of english skateboard>

The IARA/OIMoES - I was really hoping that acronym was going to just turn out spectacular and I was going to have this moment of zen in which you jizz your mind, but not this time.

Marketing budget not high enough to ponder a better name! Need to sell hundred dollars cheaper than the real thing!

I'm a sucker for expensive sports gear...



After some boarding, Feng Shui'ing, Kabbalah study, more skateboarding, construction site break in, sunset watching, fast breaking, sexy picture taking, and coffee drinking... I went to sleep.

Think I got some pictures along the way...

A future luxury beach front hotel...

And a view moments before breakfast... 


-0001 hours-

And was woken up by my compatriots who went to the Old City (Jerusalem) for a bit of the old ultra-holy. A few of them were going for a moonlight dip in the Sea... 

Think I'll pass, perhaps I'll read some conspiracy news instead!



Jame Joyce be trippin' on my stream of consciousness


† - Dagger or Obelisk is a typographical symbol or glyph, it's like an asterisk, but I opted out of the asterisk in this case because...

I think it has more meaning that way


I also wanted to add, on a serious note. Note the similarities between the flower picture and the lense flair behind Pep... 

More insight to come...
