brain phartz

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

brain phart…

Stopped riding my bicycle months ago. Thought it was due to low tire presssure, so I hand pumped em up, but was puzzled cuz they were nowhere near low enough. But I remembered when I tried to slow down for the intersection — oh yes, NO BRAKES. Interesting round trip.

tech phart…

Been building my 100-year 500-song Amazon music shuffle list for past 15 months (am up to 477 songs, with another 463 I’d added but deleted). Tried to play it this morning and it highlights the PLAY button and then goes into NeverEverLand. Works on our Alexa speaker but not on my laptop, yet will let me play Lady’s lists, or anything else – just not mine. No-tech no-geek me finally figured it out. Had asked Alexa speaker to add a song and it lit up like it was trying, but never told me it was added. When I looked at my list, song was there. Once I deleted the non-announced song, things worked fine. Hoorah for small victories for the Luddites.

Here are more fotos of the TrumpVirus.



 

May Medusa

Monday, May 25th, 2020

Got a great gig going.

Here’s my 56th monthly feature on Medusa’s Kitchen past 54 months.

Many thanks to publisher/editor Kathy Kieth… she has a magic touch in matching fotos to poems and poems to flow.

She puts up a new feature every day of the year, for years and years, maybe even decades.

https://medusaskitchen.blogspot.com/2020/05/life-aint-easy.html

My last book of poetry – Where Never Was Already Is, 2018 , Crisis Chronicles Press – consists of all 244 poems and 29 of the illustrations that appeared on Medusa my first 27 months.

a virus stronger than lies

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

Trump’s desperate to open the country for business because his reelection depends on how well folk are financially.

It’ll be counter-productive… and ugly.

By opening too soon, the virus will rebound stronger and larger, and many more people of all political persuations and financial straits will die enmass – which will both reduce his base by death and piss off the survivors.

The first wave of the 1918 Spanish Flu killed 3 to 5 million people… then people got tired of taking precautions, returned to business, and the second wave killed 20 million people.

(Wikipedia says “The death toll is estimated to have been anywhere from 17 million to 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million”).

All Trump and his 1% will accomplish is mass death, loss of confidence in both business and government, and financial chaos – all of which will make his reelection chances even worse.

He’ll be killing folk for no reward.

Looks like it’s lose-lose for Trump no matter what he does.

Which is win-win for those who survive.
