Sunday Inspiration From Alan Watts

I Don’t think I’d ever heard of Alan Watts before a few months ago. Since that time, I’ve listened to quite a few of these videos and have come to think of him as one of the most inspirational speakers I’ve ever listened too. Here are three of my favorites:

The Gift of Apollo

I’ve been feeling a little hopeless and uninspired lately, as I struggle through one of the downturns of my own emotional roller-coaster. But the following video, posted a couple of days ago by my good friend Alex Autin, is not only a reminder of what I think of as “the highest of the high points” of my life, but a reminder of the source my malaise as well…

Domesticated Primates…

It’s been a really long time since I’ve read any of the works of Robert Anton Wilson, but there are a couple of things that I remember very well about the experience. This first is what a hilarious “couldn’t put it down” roller-coaster ride they were to read. But the second, and most important thing I remember was his razor sharp, if somewhat disturbing, incites into human behavior…

Patton Oswalt and the Sky Cake

Well, despite the apparent failure of my attempt to make a larger point centered around one of his videos, I still think Patton Oswalt is one of the true comedic geniuses of our age. The man is not only about as funny as they come, he needs absolutely no help from me when it comes…

Earth Day 2013

Remember my friends, we aren’t special because the story is being written about us. We’re special because, of all the creatures we know, we’re the only ones capable of reading the book. Appreciating that allows us to truly appreciate each other, and our precious little world. Happy Earth Day everyone!

Against Some Mad Bugger’s Wall…

… We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of…

Saturday Regurgitations

I suspect that, for most bloggers at least, the phrase “writer’s block” refers to an inability to find the right words to express their thoughts. And while I’ve certainly suffered from that type often enough, what I suffer from much more often is the inability to decide which of the many, MANY things I want…

Teachable Moments?

Well, the “End Of The World” associated with Friday’s purported conclusion of the Mayan calendar has come, and gone, and we’re all still here. Yay! I know a lot of us had big fun with that and will no doubt have big fun mocking the next “End Of The World” to come!
