I AM STILL NOT COMPLYING

(GODDAMMIT)

.

A STILLNESS

(WASHES OVER ME)

NOT OF PEACE

BUT OF FEAR

IN EXILE

REVILED

NO DOUBT HUNTED

(BOTH DAY AND NIGHT)

IN THAT WAY

WHERE IT WOULD SEEM

NO ONE IS HUNTING YOU

BUT

THEY ARE

THEY REALLY ARE

(PLEASE, MAKE IT STOP)

 

.

“Too freaky”, I say, as I am known to in reaction to what could best be describe as ‘the unfathomable’. It’s not easy. The ‘it’, in this case, being the existence of someone, such as myself, standing up to the powers that be, and the sacrifices inherent in such heroism. Anyway, not to toot my own horn, but I want you to ask yourself, how long would you last living in a place with wallpaper like this?

UPDATE: I AM SAFE (FOR NOW)

.

It has been two days since I heroically defied the oppressive dictatorship of Donald J. Trump. Most of you, due to fears for your own safety no doubt, have made absolutely no effort to support me in this, and so, alone, and I freely admit, afraid, I have had no choice but to seek refuge within a vacant house located somewhere within occupied America. For those few, if any, who are willing to, even for a moment, worry about me, when their own safety is hanging so precariously in the balance, I provide you the following photographs in order to reassure that the accommodations of my fugitive hideout are not without certain essential amenities..

.

There is no furniture though a lamp on a timer is available if needed

.

.

Showering facilities are available

.

.

And, best of all, the attic space provides, if so desired, an authentic ‘hiding from the authorities’ atmosphere

UNFINISHED PORTRAIT OF THE 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

.

I didn’t paint this because I wanted to, I painted it because I had to

– The President and Founder

.

.

That’s right. In TRUMP’S AMERICA artists, no longer receiving money from the state, have no choice but to make worshipful depictions of DONALD J. TRUMP. Well, no more I say! I REFUSE! I won’t make a painting of you any more, ORANGE HITLER!

.

If I don’t post here again for an extended time, please, fight on without me!

NOT AT ALL SURPRISED

.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about ‘the science’, but, who in the hell really needed some egghead in a white coat telling them that vegetarians were unhealthy and mentally disturbed? I mean, come on people, put two and two together for Christ’s sake!

Think of it this way, Hitler was a vegetarian. Hitler was bad. And, you know who is like Hitler? Trump. Therefore, vegetarianism is bad. Go eat some meat, you’ll be glad you did.

PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME ATTEMPT TO DISCERN THE MEANING BEHIND THE LYRICS OF A SONG

.

Attempting to comprehend the meaning behind the lyrics of a song has long troubled a great many people.Since childhood I have been plagued by questions about the lyrics to the mega hit ‘Loverboy’ song ‘Working for the Weekend’. Many a time did I wonder upon hearing that song if what was being described was a reality beyond my experience or just the fevered imagination of the song writer. Perhaps you, like me, have contemplated the ultimate meaning of this song or others, but, sadly, left to your own devices never felt wholly satisfied in the conclusions you came to. Well, now, thanks to the internet it is possible to explore the musings of others (searching for answers) about the many impenetrable mysteries regarding the lyrics of popular music songs.

So, please, if you have been searching (alone and isolated as I have) listen again to ‘Working for the Weekend’ and then review its possible meanings taken from the archives at songmeanings.com.

.

.

it always came to me as a story of all these people going out to party on the weekend, hence “everybody’s workin’ for the weekend” and they get in some fight or someone gets killed or something.

Everyone’s looking to see if it was you
Everyone wants you to come through
Everyone’s hoping it’ll all work out
Everyone’s waiting they’re holding out

or maybe somebody got arrested? i ‘unno

“Working For The weekend” means, you show up at your jobs all week so you can (afford to) cut loose on the weekends.

I believe it’s about working FOR the weekend…when most dates occur. Each time I meet a guy and find him interesting, I check him out to see if he could be someone who would make a great life partner…fun, exciting, daring, not a fan of the tv or sports on tv, someone who loves to dance, party, laugh (a lot), who’s an intellectual, and who is very bright. I’ve been meeting them and laughing with them. So this song, to me, is about working hard through the week so one can enjoy the weekend. We all need some down time. And we each are looking for that right person. I pray I find him. I just haven’t met him yet, as the song goes.

i think this song refers to drugs and the narrator is the drug dealer

Everyone’s watching, to see what you will do
Everyone’s looking at you, oh
Everyone’s wondering, will you come out tonight
Everyone’s trying to get it right, get it right

i think this means all the addicts are obsessed with your schedule and are dying to know if your going to bring the drugs

This song is about people working during the weekend.A person could say something like “I’m boating for the weekend” which would mean that they are spending their weekend boating.Saying “I’m working for the weekend” would be along the same lines meaning that the person is going to be working all weekend.The fact that the person in the song is working during the weekend is why everyone wonders if that person will come out tonight or if they will just keep working.Romance is desired for the person since they are stuck at the office all weekend working and this over working explains why the person is going off the deep end.The second chance needed would be another chance for the person at life in order to acquire a job that would not require them to work during weekends.So in conclusion,this song is about people who have jobs which require them to miss their social life since they work during weekends and these people’s desire to start over with a new career in a better life.

THE PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER LOOKS OVER HIS NEW AUTOBIOGRAPHY WITH SOME ADMIRERS

.

DUE TO HIS MARGINALIZED STATUS THE PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER IS FORCED TO GO TO GREAT LENGTHS IN ORDER TO PROTECT HIS IDENTITY. IS THAT FAIR? NO, NOT AT ALL!

Well, don’t you think you should do something about it?

Of course you should

what are you waiting for, Christmas?

Organize a damn protest!

PREPARATION OF SALAD FOR ‘THE NIGHT SHIFT’

.

“The Night Shift?” you ask curious to know what kind of hi-jinx The President and Founder is up to now while also silently appreciative of the fact that he is taking care of himself by ‘eating healthy’. “Yes, The Night Shift”, I (The President and Founder) reply touching you gently on your shoulder while staring for too long into your eyes.

You do know ‘The Night Shift’, don’t you? No? What the fuck is wrong with you? Don’t answer that, I’m not interested. Here instead is a brief summation of the show as found on (the) Google:

A night-shift doctor at San Antonio Memorial, T.C. Callahan struggles to find the balance between saving lives and the hard reality of running a hospital. Joining him as he faces the sometimes dangerous task of running the emergency room are his best friend — who often shoulders the unenviable job of keeping T.C. out of trouble — Topher; former Army medic, Drew; lead physician — and T.C.’s ex-girlfriend — Jordan; and surgical resident, Paul. The rigors of the job may expose some personal weaknesses, but their shared drive to save their patients bonds them together in a tight-knit group.

MAN’S INHUMANITY TO MAN

.

That a human would design in their mind, and then build¹ in reality such a chamber of horrors as this with the belief that other humans should use it for the purpose of either hygiene or pleasure is beyond imagining by all but the most depraved mind².

¹With their own hands or with the labor of others (most likely for, what we at The Institute call, “Slave wages”)

²The President and Founder is well known for his great (and natural) ability to imagine how others feel.
