how we doin? everyone still with us? cool cool
ok... if everything turns out, this will be a long one today. Ill
start it off with some tales from the highside.
sometimes i run purely on music, and on music i purely run, and run
pure musically. A dorito sends an electrode wave across the left side
of my brain and scalp. Aqualung, my friends. greasy fingers. feeling
like a dead duck.
The reason 80s buses are better vs the new greyhounds:
-Wider and longer seats
-Softer couch material(15-20 years of asses)
- more recline
-Headrest better suited for upright position
- the seat angle cross aisle is lower, allowing for cross aisle sleeping
- Less uprising between side by side seats, which cause a rift in back
whel lying down
- Less cramped, less seats, it wasnt about every extra penny they
could save. every extra seat they could cram in, comfort still had
- THEY say "The bus isnt supposed to be comfortable, we need to get
the mentality that bus travel sucks so people work harder at their
jobs to get cars, to motivate them to join the ranks" ..... maybe..
the claws of modern society never give up. I dont think ill like
moderninity very much.... ill probably have to CHANGE again... but it
is the only constant right?. so back to the bus:
- the new ones have TV's.
- oh yay.
- i took a 58 hour bus ride, and we watched 2 movies. 2!.......2.
what, 4 hours?..... my god.... AND on one, the headphones on the
entire bus didnt work, so it was a silent movie. Then the other one,
only half had headphones. What a system. and he showed "The First
Daughter" to a bus full of 20 and 30 year old guys. when the movie was
for 14 yr old girls.... there werent any girls.... agonizing. the
praries movie. So my movie experienced sucked.
anyway the 80's buses are better, old school silver, best way to
travel. unless you have a job and can fly everywhere. The new buses
scream 'Get back to work, or be uncomfortable.'
Coming across canada, i recieved the honor of tasting water from
numerous cities and towns. Reginas water? sucks. Wawa's water? solid.
.. Kenoras water? good. Ottawas water? good. Sudbury and Thunder bay's
water? you guessed it, poision. Calgary? not bad. Winnipeg needs some
work. Banff? Great. Vancouver? average.
"Shawns school of how not to die" - from practical street skillz to
free climbing mountains, building treeforts, and picking up at the
and how to live through it all.
29.95 at chapters.
The sooner I start this school the better, who knows when itll be too
late ;). Its not controlling the random chance of (im)probability so
as to tell the future, but being aware of your surroundings, using the
laws of STDs (speed, time, distance) formulas to avoid projectiles.
Diet. exercising through thought. health through adventure, love
through sincerity.... hmm what else would i teach at my school......
skiing shawn style, biking, incl downtown survival skills, staircase
wheelies, fluid bunnyhops, mechanic skills.....scratch that, just pay
me to fix your bike, carpentry skills, learned by training mind eye
coordination. It all starts 'quickly and with confidence'
how do to stuff like:
-train jumping, bridge jumping, the occasional backflip, whitewater
canoe+kayaking, fishing, and most importantly : The "state of
awareness and understanding of your surrounding elements in every
moment which stems from experiences and trust of others experience"
mentality behind all those things.
So, what do you think? ANy takers? cheap tuition too!
Well, I didnt even get to start the stories from the last 3 weeks...
theyll have to wait for the next one, because i have something else to
write in this one.
Im going to write a quote from a book i just finished, 'The Te of piglet':
lets give er. and read it, cause it took a long time to copy.
"If we seem a bit pigletish at this point, a bit Wary of
wholeheartedly endorsing blind optimism in a business-as-usual future,
perhaps its because we live in a nation that with 5% of the worlds
population consumes 25% of the worlds energy, emite 25% of the worlds
greenhouse-effect-producing gases, yet does not regulate carbon
dioxide emissions. While germany and japan have for years been reaping
the economic benefits of major investments in energy conservation,
making germany's plan the model for the entire european economic
community. Our nation, at ever-increasing cost to the economy, has
almost totally ignored such matters and has spent its money on
you-know-what. Yes, we have our doubts about how much love this
country truly has for the earth. Doesn't such love begin at home? tey
even a quick glance inside the typical american house and garage would
reveal a startling number of anti-earth chemical weapons with which to
keep the forces of the natural world at bay. And outside.....Americans
dump sixty seven million pounds of pesticide onto the nations lawns
each year- more than farmers use to grow the nation's pesticide laden
food. Some of the thirty-four chemicals used in these Lawn Wonders
have not been government tested since the 1940's. ninety percent of
the other seventy thousand chemicals used daily in the United States
have never been directly tested for toxic effect.
If we appeat a bit Hesitant to embrace the belief that we can go on
behaving in such an irresponsible manner without paying the inevitable
price, perhaps its because we live on a planet on which seventy
species of life are driven to extintion every day, seventy five acres
of trees are cut every minute, one third of the land area has become
desert, nd life threatening droughts and floods are becoming
increasingly common year after year. In southern chile, under the
emissions-caused hole in the earth's ozone layer, which is four times
the size of united states and growing, dark glasses, hats, and full
clothing in midsummer are becoming commonplace as carcinogenic
ultraviolet-B radiation jumps to an estimated 1,000 percent of the pre
hole amount on peak days. In the same area rabbits, sheep, and fish
blinded by apparently ultraviolet ray induced cataracts are being
found in ever larger numbers.In antarctic waters, the ozone hole has
coused an estimated 25% reduction in phytoplankton - the basis of all
life in the ocean.
And so when we hear Big Talk about growing environmental awareness and
about mans ability to solve any problem, we cant help but wonder Who's
then we go to the natural world, watch, and listen. And it tells us
taht a great Storm is rising, and that before long, things will become
very Interesting indeed."
- I cant type any more... Ill continue with it on the next email, give
it to you piece by piece.
peace out all.
Ripe is the time for the flight of plight from my mind
to escape the array of city bourne decay
