New World Man Cleans Up

I've been physically ill lately and also overwhelmed by the accumulation of digital detritus over the last few years, so for 2012 I am clearing out all of the unnecessary bullshit, and getting back to nature, zen, and the uneventful life. This lyric came to mind:

from "New World Man"

He's got a problem with his poisons
But you know he'll find a cure
He's cleaning up his systems
To keep his nature pure

Happy Rush Day! :-)

I can't stop thinking big...

Thinking about Smart Mobs, and...

Thinking about Smart Mobs, and Swarms, and Shibuya Crossing, and Urbanism, and....

from "The Camera Eye"

Grim faced and forbidding
Their faces closed tight
An angular mass of New Yorkers
Pacing in rhythm
Race the oncoming night
They chase through the streets of Manhattan
Head first humanity
Pause at a light
Then flow through the streets of the city

Righteous America

Well, now that any citizen of the U.S. can be detained without cause, charge, or hearing, the country that the revolutionaries fought to create, and that my grandfather fought in WWII to protect, is now officially relegated to the dustbin of history.

And here's Rush, on topic as usual:

from "Witch Hunt"

The righteous rise
With burning eyes
Of hatred and ill-will
Madmen fed on fear and lies
To beat and burn and kill

They say there are strangers who threaten us
In our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness too dangerous
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
That those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand...

Let The Fray Begin

from "By-Tor and the Snow Dog":

Square for battle
Let the fray begin

All I Need to Know I Learned From Alex Zivojinovich

This guy has taught me a lot... especially about avoiding taser-wielding asshole cops in Naples, Florida and getting your woman to shave her pubes.
