Awesome profile page makeover!

Sorry, I neglected to thank you for the video links. I too was a big fan of The Undersea World of JC but didn't live in a place where I could follow through on it. Now, as we teeter on the verge of the sixth mass extinction, we could do a lot worse than to live by the credo, "What would Jacques do?".

Gracias, Ian!  That 'drinking from the sandal' pic was the catalytic converter.

Good morning Sage!

"

The fact that emotions are things that need to be managed and regulated that they are not entirely "self-regulating"  does reflect a deep truth, I think,  about the structure of the human psyche and will.  It's a truth that the stoics perhaps got partly right, but misunderstood, I think.     The deep truth is that we do seem to have the ability to stand back from our emotions,  to reflect upon them, and either endorse or disendorse them.   But that doesn't mean that our emotions are merely things that happen in us, to which we must never give in.   Rather think of our emotions as offering up recommendations to us as to how things stand for us with respect to our cares, concerns, and values.  They also often recommend actions to us.  Both the recommended representations and the recommended actions are at least candidates for our reflective endorsement.    When we accept an emotion's recommendation through reflective endorsement,  we have made the relevant emotion, or at least its recommendations,   fully our own, in a sense, and we have  for a period given the emotions and its proffered up representations and actions temporary hold of the reins of our lives.

I see no reason for supposing that such endorsements are never ever  wise,  prudent or rational.  Of course, it does mean that merely having an emotion or merely being moved to act by an emotion is not yet as such a   fully rational response.  But you don't need to go all the way over to stoicism to admit as much.   Emotions may not deserve to be commander in chief of our souls.  About that perhaps the Stoics were right.  But what they failed to appreciate, I think, is that the emotions have a strong claim to be perhaps the  captains or  majors of our souls.   

Or so it seems to me."

 

Great movie . . . Did I notice anything with the soundtrack?  First it's a mixed tape.  What are mixed tape again?  10CC?  Be quiet, big boys don't cry.

 

Good day to you sir.

Every conversation we had was golden.  Lies were told; truth surfaced.  Love shared; souls connected.  I discovered a different me in the process.  From the psycho bitch from hell to a poison dart.  From the impeachable me to the lovable girl ~ that I've never realized until you came along.  No time was wasted . . . every minute we've enjoyed . . . every second cherished.  So, why redesign?  When things are being learned . . . taken into hart . . . kept to the very soul.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Here's something that I hope will make you smile . . .

Your Bunker twin/Tin man mash-up was brilliant!

Enjoyed seeing the quote from Old Lodge Skins. Little Big Man is a longtime favorite of mine.

How do I delete something from my playlist?

No she's been on that show plenty, it's a whole thing with Louie and Pamela. I have a problem where I think everyone knows all the shit I know.

At 8:52pm on June 7, 2014, JJJ23 said…

I loved that line from Louie(open mic), and Charles Grodin's role in general has been great, but I hate how critics have been shitting on that show for that episode. I see it as a real case of people taking a scene horribly out of context and it's a damn shame.

Your interest inspired me to post some of my other Praying Mantis pics. I was not aware of mantis shrimps before, but man, they are awesome. Thanks for the tip-off.

The recent tragedy struck pretty close to home for you; not too close, I hope.

lol I didn't realize I was such an idiot!   I always thought the link was for a single blog about cw itself or something, not multiple blogs. thanks, sorry.

Thanks man, you guys should put that on the homepage or something to incentivize blog posts, and increase participation.

How to Drive Two Cars at the Same Time

I was watching In the Heat of the Night(1967) and heard Virgil say that Sam couldn't have driven two cars at the same time.

As Rod Steiger pondered this rarely-contested fact for a moment it dawned on me.   It is quite easy to drive two cars at the same time as long as you have about 30 feet of PVC pipe, 100 ft of 8 gauge steel wound wire and one roll of Gorilla Tape.  For ease of control the wires on the driver's end would be attached to a couple of hard-rubber handles controlling steering, gas & brakes:

WARNING:  Do not attempt this on the open road.  However, if you happen to live in the middle of Australia go ahead and have fun.  And, just like with remote control helicopters it's best to start out with inexpensive vehicles until you dial in the controls.

Lindsay Lohan Hires Herbie

In the wake of today's collision, sources close to sources close to sources close to the Lohan camp revealed that her handlers have contacted the Special Effects Department at Disney in an effort to secure several of the 'Herbie' Volkswagens that were featured in  Herbie Fully Loaded (2005).

 

One of the heavily-reinforced cars is equipped with ground-breaking accident avoidance technology that was first used on the Mars Rover ten years ago.  Both cars will also feature Google's new Blind Driving Computer.  "All the cars have a limiter at 210 mph," Herbie's handlers said, "otherwise they could lose control.  But they're death-proof up to 400 mph.  So we're confident she'll be alright."  Google could not be reached for comment.

We Might Be Stuffing

   Considering the hundreds of eyewitness accounts in South America of a giant flightless bird and the fact that much of that country has yet to be explored with modern surveillance equipment it is practical to assume that there are still birds out there that could bite our head off.  When we sit down and eat our bird this coming Thursday it's important to realize just why it tastes so good.  When the hunted finally get to eat the hunter there is a sublime molecular response, a sense of total gratification.   Thousands of generations were afraid to go outside without their dogs nearby.  Some even had panthers and tigers to protect them from becoming Diatryma feed, though that elitist method would backfire from time to time for obvious reasons.  

   Today when we give our cats and dogs the giblets and the dark meat we're actually thanking them for thousands of years of protection.  We pay them tributes just like in the Godfather.  So Thanksgiving is a day of thanks on many levels, besides the obvious ones, which include being thankful for Law & Order on TNT and the Snuggie®.
