Progress Is a Relative Term

Progress Is a Relative Term

I recently watched a brief speech given by Elon Musk on a social media platform where he was speaking about climate change in regards to carbon emissions and our need for sustained energy. But healthy sustained energy. Everyone knows by now that big oil and coal are the enemies of a healthy planetary environment. At least that's the meme subscribed [...]

    Dark Matter: Believing in the Impossible

Dark Matter: Believing in the Impossible

Over the last thirty odd years, since as early as I can remember even in childhood, I have noticed that a peculiar phenomenon exists within the consciousness of most people we share the world with, no matter their age, nationality, religion, class or financial situation. Even those considered "intelligent" doesn't seem to prevent them from operating from this perspective most of [...]

    Creating and Wearing Identities Deliberately and Publicly

Creating and Wearing Identities Deliberately and Publicly

Dear Ed, It's interesting to me that both of these -- being gay AND being Christian -- are identities. And then I wonder - What is the value (or the agenda, perhaps?) in a public *display* of an identity? I'm thinking of the Avatar Masters' Integrity Course materials.... Hey there, Yeas, totally. Why bother spreading identities all over the place when it would [...]

It’s Not a Conspiracy if Everybody Knows About it

I received a message this weekend from someone with a few questions regarding the potential of a "conspiracy" around the upcoming US presidential election. I don't get a chance to respond to all messages I receive. I would say that the process is almost "random" at this point. Some just catch my eye. Many i simply never get a chance [...]

Science Does Not Negate the Supernatural

Listening to Jesus Christ Superstar this morning. The Broadway Show album, versus the movie version that I'm more familiar with. Must say it was cool to hear Ian Gillian singing Jesus. Though for the most part I still enjoy the movie version the best. There's this one section when Judas is singing, after Jesus is captured and he calls out to [...]

    The Problem With Social

The Problem With Social

A  caveat: for those more accustomed to, and more interested in, the usually more philosophical, theological or sociological nature of The Diaries, you may want to skip this post. It's about finance and economics and more technical than usual. Just a heads up. If you do decide to venture in, I will clarify a bit more than usual regarding the [...]

    Songwriting in Your Sleep

Songwriting in Your Sleep

A funny thing has been transpiring lately. Something completely unexpected and almost supernatural in a way. If there is any "one thing" that I do well, out of the thousands and thousands of things we do or learn to do or are forced to do while we're journeying here in the earthly realm -- for surely every person possesses such [...]

    Removing the Cross from Christendom

Removing the Cross from Christendom

In the days before the time of Jesus, when Israel was under roman rule and occupation, killing people was a common practice. One could be executed or "put to death" for any number of countless reasons. (One might observe the similarities to some modern day Middle Eastern countries in today's world, sadly.) There were used a variety of different methods [...]

Little House On the Prairie Versus Contemporary Society

So there it is. Another Sunday waving goodbye. I've come to enjoy this ritual of ending the day w/ an episode or 2 of Little House On the Prairie. Purchased the entire Season 1, as I've never seen it. What comes to mind most often while watching it, along with hundreds of other thoughts, is just how much society, hence [...]

    The Biology of the Changing Seasons

The Biology of the Changing Seasons

The sun is out white hot and bright today; the sky near perfectly flawlessly clear and brilliant blue. It's a sharp contrast to the freezing temperatures, gray overcast skies and constant onslaught of snow we've been experiencing for almost a week in the Northeast. But one would do well not to be fooled by this recent change in the weather, [...]

    Buying Selling and Trading Your Digital Media

Buying Selling and Trading Your Digital Media

A few years back I posted an article here suggesting that the television industry needed to institute a radical change in programming and release full seasons of shows all at once instead of sticking to the old model of one episode per week and that they could even charge a premium for it because consumers were changing how they wanted [...]

    The Sad Case of The Millennials?

The Sad Case of The Millennials?

Tonight I was gently coerced by a younger friend into watching something called WHAT? by Bo Burnham, a young twenty-something Millennial doing his idea of a fresh take on a standup comedy routine. At first I did my best to stay busy enough doing other things to pay only as much attention as was necessary to quickly get how immature the [...]

    Aaron Sorkin Hits Another Grandslam with New Newsroom

Aaron Sorkin Hits Another Grandslam with New Newsroom

HBO's original series NEWSROOM is far and away the most intelligent program on television. Anywhere. Perhaps of all time. Several thoughts come to mind. Number one: Granted, this used to be a rather easy thing to say of course -- if one ever had the opportunity (rare) to encounter an intelligent program on TV in days past, because TV used to [...]

Artists Are Getting Screwed in the New Music Business

"The music industry is dwindling, but only for the artists. Something's not right here. Artists can't make a living anymore. They're having to go get second jobs to pay the bills. But look at the profits of music companies like YouTube, iTunes, Spotify and the evil publicly-traded Pandora (who recently sued artists and record labels to be allowed to pay [...]

    On the Wretched State of the Music Business

On the Wretched State of the Music Business

A film producer was waxing nostalgic earlier today about how good the music of the 70s was and wondering why the music of today is so horrendous. I have already shared here in past posts that while I wholeheartedly agree with this notion I also recognize that there is some incredible music and musical innovation happening at the moment. It's [...]
