~more, JAMES MOORE . . .
so, HAPPY HALLOWEENIE – while I still have the web juice !!
the invisible ‘system’ – going down with the storm ?!!
damn, NYC caught between . . . a KILLER NANNY and a KILLER STORM.
and, on the very eve of Halloweenie !!
it’s like being shot – right . . . between the eyes.
PLUS: my hard drive, holding ALL my iPhoto pix since 2007 – is failing, the back-up is sputtering and my computer seems to be heading to the graveyard – too. I can hear the drives grinding. damn.
talk about YOUR PERFECT STORM.
it’s not funny . . . A-N-X-I-E-T-Y RULES !!
ok infanticide is bad enough . . . and, KNOCK on WOOD.
but. when you face PERSONAL / CYBER-DISCONNECTION . . . whether thru theft, loss, hacking, or hardware malfunction, that’s also severe enough to give your bio-body a heart attack, for real . . . that’s why people hold onto their phones, for dear life (!!) in the face of hulking muggers. it is like losing a child. or losing touch with your child, is maybe a better way to put it. we’re spoiled lethally soft by instant communication.
losing your digital device. it is losing your life. well that’s a bit unsensitive, but actually . . . damn straight – true. a void opens up, deep in the heart of you.
SO: when you face a week of being bumped off the grid – due to natural forces, they say the storm will down the power lines . . . that feed your devices. what can you do. can you manage to breathe.
yep, and you know it – at the end of the day – you need that electrical power current. like your body needs water.
so, NO, it’s not a TOTALLY wireless world, YET !!
and until it is, and they be working on it, I’m sure – ANXIETY RULES.
so you do realize we are already: half man, half machine, don’t you ?
SO FUNNIE, but get this !!
FILE UNDER: who woulda thunk it . . .
this is my conscious mind, above – and it’s totally wired . . . to the web as you can see.
though yes, I can also read TAROT CARDS, when it comes down to it . . .
but in MY dreams ?
omg, excuse the expression – I wake up this morning, and WTF am I dreaming ?
I am part of a hi-tech cyber crew hatching plans to ‘patch’ into the cyber banking world – and make off with the biggest digitial bank theft . . . in history – under cover of the storm !!
anonymous, move over !!
well, I guess what they say is true: yes, NECESSITY . . . is the MOTHER OF INVENTION !!
even, in your d-r-e-a-m-s.

YOUR BRAIN ON STEROIDS, I MEAN . . . the INTERNET !!
BLACK LIGHT. sunshine, NOT !!
so with the killer storm, rhymes with killer whale ? as in BIO. BIO. BIO. VIOLENT.
and the horrifying break-down of the deranged Dominican killer nanny – I got to thinking, maybe it wasn’t . . . ALL about BIO-HUMAN warfare and self-destruction.
short-cut called: ‘planetary’ bio-species.
BUT: maybe it had more to do with the fact, that we are all living lives, in a future-sense. pressed by the new reality of economic forces & change . . . and so disconnected on the physical level – as a society as a whole.
while we live more TRULY – as a society as a whole – on the web. I mean how do you have a life, when you update a blog, do your Facebook, and . . . follow 780 twitter friends ?
our heads are b-u-r-n-i-n-g !! . . . . to the BONE !! with COMMUNICATION, INFORMATION, stalking ? and NO RULES.
our heads are on fire . . . with the youTube/google possibilities. aka the life & brain … on-grid. aka florescent light !! aka purple rain !!
I’m even thinking: LSD. or at the very best, peyote ?
not to mention all the god damn meds – everybody in this country is on. addarall, anybody ?
look out !! when you INTERVIEW YOUR NEXT NANNY.
KEY QUESTION NUMBER ONE: are you on meds ?
but, duh. with, or without the meds, we are wired . . . . and we are consumed.
we live in the alternate twilight.
it’s already happened. the future – is US !!
we are evolving into a planet . . . of animals – that are melted as in, w-e-l-d-e-d to the web, the alternate universe of the internet. c-a-p-t-i-v-e. c-o-n-s-u-m-e-d.
and note: the electric cord.
it’s not just a case of being wired. but of needing to be … wired.
as in: connected to the juice.
the . . . purple power ?
killer whales. killer nannies. killer storms.
downed technology ?
merging with the machine, the grid. the web. the power source.
so, you do know a slice of a mouse’s brain, is no diff from a slice of the universe – except in SCALE. look it up.
it makes you wonder how our ancestors ever got thru without the advanced linked-in technology we depend on today. I mean ok, first they had the stars to guide them, then the myths, then religion. to help them connect the dots. but still unless they had telepathy skills that we have lost / how did they ever feel …. SECURE ?
without smartphones. even just cellphones.
and I mean, even just our fairly recent colonist fathers . . . leaving Europe, or Africa (!!) for the new land, and once getting here, picking up and …. being pioneers setting off into the unknown frontier, ok they had quilts !! and guns !! BUT STILL without – any way to communicate to those back home ?
and. how did the fomilies left behind, cope with that. how did the 60s cope with . . . land lines, only ?
yes. we are on the very cusp of either going . . . totally back in time to primal, or becoming neo-primal – as in, back to basics: warriors, stalkers. predators. prey.
avengers. hackers. vigilantes ?
or, worse case scenario: bio-robot ‘demented’.
in fact: the issue seems to be . . how NOT to become humanly ‘dis-connected’ . . . in the face of so much … connection !!
so, yeah. the future don’t look to be as cuddly …. ‘locavore’ as in Brooklyn farm-to-table fare – as much as locavore: as in LOCO and VAMPIRE. and no doubt about it, we are the FOOD.
if we are not the FIGHTER ?
we are the victim, if we are not the bully ?
same old, same old human condition . . . if you think it down to basics, nothing ever . . . changes !!
two choices. be the hunter. or be the hunted.
DUDE, BETTER EVOLVE, FAST, GROW WINGS & LEARN to FLY . . . on that web.
THE FUTURE IS – US !!
THE FUTURE IS – NOW.
