High Plains Banker

He's one holy roller

He came rolling into town driving in Italian super suave style, an earthly god of spectacular virility and wealth. He had Rod Stewart hair and J Paul Getty disease. As his English custom shoes touched the ground, women competed bare-breasted to tie his Armani shoelaces. Me/…

OK, so I got a cool new camera, one that lasts more than seven pictures.  It also has "features", another new concept for me.  The descriptions of how these features work, however, were hidden in the user's manual instead of innately transferring them to mind through osmosis.  Therefor… Read full post »

We Are Not A Serious People

Headed to the candidates' debate

This whole healthcare reform debate is a microcosm of our society as a (w)hole. A serious issue addressed in a non-serious way. All sorts of mindless assumptions and assertions are being made both for and against reform. And it's not really about bringing a com/…

Love, It Does A Body Good

"They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."

Dark, faceless warrior -
the 21st century human ideal

As a planet dies, so does the social fabric that holds it together. It has/…

"Everybody gets something out of every transaction."
-Joe Mantegna in "House of Games"

In a previous posting I discussed Con Men and Religion, religion being defined as bullshit one makes up in order to feel good about oneself. Now, I certainly understand the desire to trust, it's a natural h/…

Hate-ist Pat Buchanan running for
Grand Dragon Republican Nominee in 1992

When I first moved out onto my own I lived on the edge of town with a few other scattered trailers and Derek was my closest neighbor. Derek, though he had his faults, was a bit of a free spirit,/…

If Charles Manson Had Been A Banker

I can destroy how many
lives as a banker?? Cool!

News of the Tate-LaBianca murders has spread outrage across the country. In response to a growing clamor for action, Charles Manson, the mastermind behind the deaths, and his "family" were called before Congress today. Congressional representati/…

Lamentations Of A Working Man

They literally told me this was "life"

Dear God,

You've never been there for me before, why should You start now? But I got nowhere else to turn. Do all roads lead to death? I can't see what You're good for, God. I really just can't. Is there something I'm supposed/…

Imaginary Me

A funny thing happened in the awesome J. Erik Jonsson library today. I was sitting by the window, staring out through the curtains into the afternoon heat and I started picturing myself sitting out there on the front steps, calm and collected, watching the people go by. Right in the middleRead full post »

What The Fly On The Wall Saw

Does it seem incongruous to be making Molotov cocktails while secretly dancing to the Go-Gos?

Sorry fucks! I'll show them. "We need your particular kind of genius, Rollie." Ha! Thought you hit my blind spot didn't y/…

Emotionally, I'm a twelve-year-old

The problem with living in a bubble is the same as holding your breath. You can do it for a time - but not forever. But the cool thing about holding your breath is that it suspends reality. One can live underwater or walk through a poisonous/…

Who Is the One?

"Have you ever heard the story of the One?" he asked me, leaning over his chair.

In a fit of frustration, I'd been staying lately in cheap hotels to live the "good life". But I came to realize it was an illusory hope, not really giving me what I want. So

The Operatist

Eat your heart out, Kinkade

The village was nestled high in the Bavarian mountains. Its stunning beauty was the kind travel agents hundreds of years in the future would rave about, bringing sticky fingered children and gawking tourists who would absorb the beauty, digest it and look for the ne/…

His ambitions didn't match his karma

As warlords went, Yabu wasn't much. He had his own territory but he was never his own man, always a lieutenant general, never the supreme commander. In the wide open era of the Sengoku, there were those content to serve and those filled with raging/…

You count Jessica - for now

We all remember Baby Jessica who fell down the well. The thought of that baby dying was simply unbearable. No expense, no amount of manpower was too great to save her. To let that baby die would have been to rob meaning from every life./…

Not Debby, but similar (to when I knew her - not now)

There are many things I remember about Debby. The way her bangs curled across her forehead drove me mad, making her seem vulnerable and delicately precious. It would not have been a loss for me to give my life for/…

The best way is with a suicide pill like Goering used. When it comes to modern death, Nazis are always the experts.

Of course, living here in Texas, I should probably use one of these (which is what I do plan to use). From what I gather, under… Read full post »

Obama: Stalin is evil -
but I support his policies!

There are some ignorant people in this world and they are called Obama supporters. It rather reminds of the days of Russian purges and those arrested were confused and shocked, claiming comrade Stalin must not know about the wrongs committed iRead full post »

The Practicality Of Idealism

"You can kill a man but you can't kill an idea."
Medgar Evers

"Oh, you're just an idealist." I hear that said to me all the time in the dismissive tone of that of an adult informing an ignorant child. They sigh impatiently with my alleged lack of understanding of how/…

Life In The Factory Grind

"If it keeps on raining

In the Factory Grind, the drum beat never stops. Relentless, driven with the earth's energy bent by the will of men, the Factory feeds on the souls within. Hollowed task masters whip slaves in sexual… Read full post »

"I create nothing. I own."

There's a lineage of evil in ownership of the Texas Rangers baseball team. First it was [the anti-Christ 43rd President] and now Dallas' own Tom Hicks, a leveraged buyout (LBO) specialist, a.k.a economic parasite. But the keyword here is 'leveraged' because Tommy boy/…

An Immodest Proposal

Obviously a righteous dude

There's an easy way to tell a person of worth in this fine society of ours: they have the money! You got the bucks you must be doing something righteous and pure, no two ways about it. Some holier than thou people like to prattle on about character/…
