Eggs Over Easy
I would like to share something about myself with you, dear reader: I fucking love eggs. Let me write that again, all by itself on its own line so that when you open the page and do the quality scan/skip down the page thing to see if this enormous mass of words is worth reading (everyone does it, I’m just calling you out here), your whorish loveless eye will fall upon the following words,...
My friend and I have a passion for puns, and the other day we decided that we were going to open a flan restaurant simply for the enormous potential for flan-related puns. I’m pretty sure I was drunk, so it still counts. Here is a compilation: Flanitude, flanbouyant, flanaphalactic shock, flanacalypse, flanticipation, flantabulous, flantagonist, a man with a flan, Ameriflan, sounds like a...
Okay. Suggestions and such!
So, I believe myself to be sufficiently drunk upon submitting this post, if you can even call it that. I think that the whole entire universe needs a confidence boost. Cause why the heck not?!!? I dare you to tell me about one person. just one, that needs a confidence boost as badly as I’m pretending to give myself one. If this person exists then kudos, you’ve probskies improved...
It’s been a long time. Too long, in fact. This is mostly due to the fact that I drink with other people much more frequently now. For that I apologize. I just wanted you to know that I did not forget about you. I appreciate that you will always be here for me, as long as Tumblr continues to exist. In a way, it’s probably a good thing that I don’t post on you so often anymore, and...
What is an algorithm? It is a series of instructions. That is all. Don’t be intimidated by it because it has three syllables and you didn’t know what it meant before two sentences ago, that’s all it is. You have learned lots of algorithms in your educational experience. Grade school math is all about getting good at the simple algorithms of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and...
I am bending the rules a bit with this one, however I think it is worthy. This is part of a conversation I had last night before blogging.
narcissist has 3 s's in it
Are hilariously intellectual when you're drunk.
thank you, i think
does art matter at all?
i appreciate art for the right reasons, moreso than the average joe, i think
but i have no justification for it
do you know what i mean?
You appreciate it
That's all that matters
Art is art
but what makes something art?
like, you have heard of DuChamp right?
he attached a urnial to a wall upside down, called it 'fountain', and was like "ART, MOTHERFUCKERS"
haha, that's so excellent!
Me: i'm serious: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_(Duchamp)
Me: and then there is piss christ: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piss_Christ
literaly just a normal rucifix suspended in the phtographer's piss
like, symbolism, sure. allegory, yes. art? hard to say
I mean, it depends on your thoughts on art.
What are your thoughts about art?
i like to think of it as expressing truth
but the kind of truth that escapes our ability to rigidly define
like, our commonly accepted ideas of things that are true
so like, fiction is synonymous with lies
by virtue of it's ability to lie, can expose deeper truth
(it took me like 3 tries to spell 'right' correctly)
Then I think it's about what what a personal truth is
Because personal truths are harder to explain, I think.
But art is an easier way to express it
Because it doesn't take words.
well, unless it is writing lol
but i still have to disagree
good art speaks to everyone
and still contains some kind of truth
so in some sense, it is a global truth
like, something that is true for humans, on earth
maybe not as true as 2+2=4, but true for all humans that will ever exist
do you see what i mean?
yeah, I get you
good art is the next best thing to pure mathematical truth
(i think i am seeing in 2 dimensions)
good art has the same immortal quality as good mathematics too
b/c no one forgets it, even after hundreds of years
At the risk of exposing my political ignorance, I am going to talk about my views on war and the US military in general. I am probably wrong in all important respects, and I expect corrections, but I am still going to write it. What else can I do, right? So, war is stupid. There is no reason to go to war, there is nothing that cannot be talked out given enough time. This is my firm belief. I...
Why doesn’t anyone on this site post original content? Seriously, pretty much every blog I have seen is just re-posting someone else’s shit. How can you possibly ever expect someone to take you seriously when all you ever do is reiterate someone else’s ideas? Do something original! Even if your idea is not the best, you will be respected for your originality. Have a thought....
A World of Ideas
So, I would like to write for a while about the idea of the world of ideas. What I mean by this, I think, it the Plato’s idea of a reality containing all of the ideas of mathematics, geometry, logic, etc. See, his idea was that these things had a sort of existence of their own independent of our ability to perceive them. For example, the circumference of a circle is exactly pi times larger...
Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of blossoming alchoholism! Since we talked about big numbers last time, I thought it would be appropriate to finish off the bottle (as it were) with talking about infinity. Let’s go way, way back before the theory of atoms carried any weight. Forget everything you know about atomic theory, and consider the nature of matter. Say I’ve got a...
So, let’s talk about big numbers. These day we hear ‘million’ and ‘billion’ and ‘trillion’ tossed around all the time. I mean, you hear ‘-illion’ and automatically thing ‘inconceivably big number’. Don’t feel bad, I do it too. I think maybe these numbers should have different sounding names, because they are SO BIG, and...
First! (Why I started this blog)
Hello everyone! And by everyone, I mean the several people who I will soon tell that this blog exists. Hi. So, I thought it would be appropriate, for my first ever post on this blog, to talk about why I wanted to start this blog. For those of you who are observant, or whom I have already told about this idea, this is a drunk blog. What I mean by drunk blog is that, in order to post, respond to a...
