I know the vibes have been screwy for quite a while but it seems like the weirdness level just took a quantum leap or two in the last few days.
Suddenly EVEYRYTHING is falling to flinders. And I mean EVERYTHING. We gots the swines on fire with a cauldron of diseases the prez buzz-flyin NYC in
Airforce 1 to scare every last Tomfool whose been jumpin' ast shadows for the past decade out of their limited wits. Oh, and lookie here, why
here'S GM's getting nationalized and the top 20 biggest banks on the planet are insolvent and what's this about Senators jumping ship and arctic
ice shelves the size of Missouri carving off and kult leaders flying helicopters out of jail...
Then we drop the wavelngth dial down an order of magnitude from the big dawgs to the middlebrow range and things are just as flippy. I've seen every
news commentator from Alex Jones to Peter Jennings literally LOSE THEIR PRVERBIAL SOLID WASTE MATTER on screen. I aint talking garden-variety rants, I
mean raw bug-eyed catatinic mumbling, slurring of words, uncontrollable screaming and drool-cup
or hebehrenic babbling and humming and cackling live on air. Bartender, I'll have heatever the Illuminati are serving our media
spokespersons and upholders of 4th-estate dignity. And then there are the bloggers. Several of my faves, like the guy who runs
, have gone from voices of stability to wiggin' out Elijah-like pustule-encrusted desert prophets
howling themselves hoarse in the wilderness and taking on all sorts of delusions of grandeur.
On a slightly more serious note, I'm starting to wonder if some kind of mass insantiy beam or chem treatment or whatever is being used on every
level. The prez looks befuddled and spaced out; he's subtly starting to take on that medicated-looking "GW BUSH TEN-THOUSAND-YARD STARE," and
meanwhile the rest of us are either drooling catatonically, howling and clawing at the walls, or stitching together human-skin griiories or the
Then drill down to the local level, the personal inteactions you've had with friends, neighbors, cowokers, and so on. Notice anything...shall we
in their general psycholigical makeups and actions? I'm seeing peple I've known for years acting in totally scary,
irratiional ways, either excessively aggressive or retreating into inner worlds within worlds. and huddling up in the corner with their Linus blankies
to suck their thumbs. Granted this is anecdotal personalevidence but I'm seeing it EVERYWHERE. And so are others I'm talking to.
Screw the damn piggie flu, I want to know what they have been doing to drive everyone B*TSH*T INSANE over the course of the past week while the basic
financial and social architecure of the globe crumbles into into little drifting dust-devils of particulate debris.
I've always been a bit skeptical of the "This is really it guyz can u feel it comin down rite now omg" threads but this time I'm finally starting
to think the time is ripe for my first.
