FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY (I told you)

.

The Poets will tell you

but do not listen

clasp your hands to your ears and hum loudly

a tune of your own devising

or one heard on the radio will do

not your favorite necessarily

but annoying enough

to drowned out the Poets

SKETCHES OF THE BAD FEELING

.

Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead, and to tend downwards with great weight and pressure towards hell; and if God should let you go, you would immediately sink and switfly descend and plunge into the bottomless gulf, and your healthy constitution, and your own care and prudence, and best contrivance, and all your righteousness, would have no more influence to uphold you and keep you out of hell, than a spider’s web would have to stop a fallen rock

-Jonathan Edwards

JACK HORRORCHILD’S BLUE BLOODS PERIOD

.

There’s really no good reason not to start remembering fondly what is happening right now.

-Jack Horrorchild

.

 Alone in his studio, the artist, Jack Horrorchild, a mere conduit for the creative energy that permeates all of this universe, and the universes beyond (mentioned only obscurely in ancient texts), stands poised to execute the next stroke of the brush that will bring life to what is now only a static 2 dimensional image (of New York’s First Family of Crime Fighting)

Stephen Hawking said that. And, in my experience, he was right. I say “was right” because he’s dead. Never to return. That was it for him. He’s worm food now. Nice knowing ya, pal.

The summary below is copied and pasted here exactly as it appears on the CBS.com/BlueBloods website. If you choose, and it is your choice, to read the summary below then I want you to understand that I am simply presenting it here as a service with no assumption that anyone really gives a good God damn enough to waste one moment of their precious and fleeting time on this planet to reading some garbage typed up by a drunk, and or stoned, corporate lackey who most likely doesn’t even watch the show they are describing.

.

“­After leaving a club late night, three privileged guys senselessly beat up and ultimately murder a homeless man in the alley behind the club. Danny and Jackie find out the victim is a former Marine and war hero and Danny finds himself determined to find the killer having been a marine himself. We learn from Kimberly, the victim’s former girlfriend, that a friend’s death during combat tormented Michael, causing drug and alcohol addiction which were responsible for his homelessness. Security cameras reveal one of the three suspects who comes clean and confesses that his boss Cassidy actually committed the murder with a baseball bat. Cassidy, a high profile real estate developer, is very cocky and has paid off the other suspect so no one can corroborate the story. In the end, Danny finds another homeless girl who was a witness and crucial evidence allowing him to convict Cassidy. Michael has a proper military funeral and is buried with his Silver Star which Cassidy had stolen. Meanwhile there is continued conflict between the Mayor and Frank; the Mayor leaking erroneous information that Frank is planning to run against him in order to get attention from the press. ­”

-CBS.com ‘Blue Bloods’ season 6, episode 17 summary

.

Upon entering the alley, where they eventually mercilessly beat to death a homeless Marine, one of the “three privileged guys” says to his pals, “I’d jump into the Hudson river to get away from those cows. How’d we lose all the hot chicks?” Then, once discovering the homeless Marine inside his makeshift shelter, another of the “privileged guys” asks the troubled veteran, in a faux posh accent, “Yo, are you pimping your crib?”. Sensing trouble the Marine stands up nervously as one of the “privileged guys” asks, “Hey, what’s the best part about dating the homeless?…hey, I’m asking you..you can drop them off wherever you want” to which the once proud Marine responds, “I don’t want any problems”. Unfortunately, his request was denied.
