Guest song: Talking Heads



Making Flippy Floppy


Nothing can come between us
Nothin gets you down
Nothing strikes your fancy
Nothing turns you on
Somebody is waiting in the hallway
Somebody is falling down the stairs
Set someone free, break someone's heart
Stand up help us out

Ev'rything is divided
Nothing is complete
Ev'rything looks impressive
Do not be deceived
You don't have to wait for more instructions
No one makes a monkey out of me
We lie on our backs, feet in the air
Rest and relaxation, rocket to my brain

Snap into position
Bounce till you ache
Step out of line
And you end up in jail
Bring me a doctor
I have a hole in my head
But they are just people
And I'm not afraid
Doctor doctor
We have nothing in our pockets
We continue
But we have nothing left to offer
Faces pressed against the window
Hey! they are just my friends
Check this out don't be slick
Break our backs it goes like this . . .

We are born without eyesight
We are born without sin
And our mama protects us
From the cold and the rain
We're in no hurry
Sugar and spice
We sing in the darkness
We poen our eyes (open up)

I can't believe it
And people are strange
Our president's crazy
Did you hear what he said
Business and pleasure
Lie right to your face
Divide it in sections
And then give it away

There are no big secrets
Don't believe what you read
We have great big bodies
We got great big heads
Run-a-run-a-run it all together
Check it out - still don't make no sense
Makin' flippy floppy
Tryin to do my best
Lock the door
We kill the beast
Kill it!

  1. First!

    What does a psychopath's facebook look like? One of my friends has her's as almost completely blank and walled off. I'm making mine up again and I'm putting all of my favorite books, movies, music etc. There's a lot of it and I'm wondering if that might get in the way of my manipulations. How do you guys keep it?

    1. It looks like whatever the hell they made it look like. They're people too, after all, rather than one big glob of psychopathy.

    1. I wouldn't be surprised if this was written using the Dada method, but perhaps it's about how much humankind, despite it's attempt to do the opposite, really just flails around all over the place.

    2. What is the Dada method?

    3. Write some sentences or phrases on a piece a paper, cut the paper up line by line, throw the pieces up in the air, put them in order randomly or quasi-randomly or not randomly at all.

      David Bowie wrote a lot of lyrics that way.

    4. I got rather pissed off reading this song, if it's supposed to mean any one thing specifically or has an actual theme, they need to do a better job.

    5. ha. the dada method is a bit how i plan my day.

    6. it is the way of the disorganized person.

      Is it normal for a person to beat themself up and be so hard on themself allthetime if you were raised by the hyper critical ?

      I see hyper critical in myself to myself like a broken record and i am old and cannot fix this? why? i am intelligent. Why i cannot change when i am so self aware?

      i tried many therapists an they say then just do it. but i cannot do what i want to do, what i see people all around me do.

      it's because my mother wrote my term papers for me when they were hard and due and i did not have them done.

      i still waiting for mama to do my rrsponsiblities? i feel entitled? i see that, but i don't feel entitled to anythig. i just feel broken for so long.

      is there anyone else who feels similarly here?

    8. "Is it normal for a person to beat themself up and be so hard on themself allthetime if you were raised by the hyper critical ? "

      I think so.

      "I see hyper critical in myself to myself like a broken record and i am old and cannot fix this? why? i am intelligent. Why i cannot change when i am so self aware? "

      I get this.

      "t's because my mother wrote my term papers for me when they were hard and due and i did not have them done.

      Nope... Lost me. I didn't get given and that's why I believe I take.

    9. oh. i got very mixed messages. I only got given on other people's terms. If I asked, no.

  5. Think about all the parts of being human. There is fear, shame, wonder, affection, warmth, connection, NEEDING others, wanting to be important, wanting to look good, fear of rejection, fear of not belonging, wanting to be close, fearing to be close, wanting to kill, wanting to destroy and many more as exemplified in music or literature, for example. Think of the ones you threw away. Those are the ones you must get back.

    1. You "must" get them back if you want the full spectrum of what it means to be human imo.
      It is like notes on a scale. You can miss some, but you won't have the whole scale.

      Delete
    2. As usual, I love your posts. I don't feel I need these things I have thrown away though, Heals. I threw them away for a reason. I do think you are very correct in your premise though. I just don't see a reason to have the full spectrum.

    3. Thank you, Tom. Your kind words mean a lot.

    4. The wife and I just had a talk about killing for the first time. I told her it was no different than washing a load of laundry... it was just an act. She became appalled and exclaimed, "Normal people don't think like that!"

      I had nothing... I thought she was right.

      Delete
    5. How do you stay married that long without having ever discussed that? That's a huge part of you not to share, especially since she already knew or assumed you killed people, right?

      Delete
    6. When people are shut down, they don't do things "normal" people would do. It is not in their realm of thought. There are blank spaces that look like they make no sense to the outside world.

      Delete
    7. MeDUSa, I have never felt compelled to share these things with her before and I think this is due in large part as to what I perceived the "Marine" doing in these situations... you don't talk about these things with civilians, but why? I mean, yes, it is very difficult for most people to relate... I guess, but why not discuss? So after yesterday's discussions and a few glasses of pinot noir, and the fact Mrs T would not leave me alone about the lame party the night before... I told her about the little talk my buddy and I had concerning the IED guys. I was shocked at her shock. Yes, she knew I had done some of these things, but I think it was the matter of factness that caught her off guard.

  7. i take pleasure in giving pain to assholes and bullies but not from hurting a victim or the weak, i dont care for them. what does that make me? am I a dexter wannabe or anything else?

    1. Maybe it's more accurate to say that Dexter is a wannabe you.

      Delete
    2. But if you like inflicting pain on assholes and bullies, without it being personal and without caring about their victims, doesn't it make them your victims? What's the difference? Do they remind you of someone or something?

      Delete
    3. You've got your very own victims, bravo! Now you can join them in assholedom.

  8. This is from yesterday but relates to the topics. I told the head of the organization, I would not be treated this way and would leave if he would not stand up. He took a neutral pose, which was fine, as long as he did not throw me under the bus, in favor of the Mal Narc. However, here is the interesting part. *I* felt really good, as if I accomplished something big for my own self esteem.

    I am talking to my mother and called her. She was all worried the head would be mad at me.

    My conclusion is that she does not have enough sense of self to take a stand, such as I did. That goes to the weak sense of self of a Mal Narc( which she is)

    They can fight from behind a bush, like the lady did to me, but they won't stand up and be counted with outright courage. Outright courage takes a level of self that the Mal narc does not have. What do you think?

  11. This place used to be a lot more interesting and had a much better flow when you didn't have to scroll all over the place to interact. I think M.E should be fired or at least be written up and given a stern warning. Sucks dude.

    1. Are you even aware that the forum exists.

    2. i saw it a while ago and looked at it briefly.. I didn't like that format, as well, seems there is a lot of spam and trolling and I need attention posts... i'm surprised that me hasn't added a live chat, that might be cool

      Delete
    3. Well, everything that used to be here is now over there, with the same ups and downs in quality. I know you're an aspie and all, but getting used to the format there is better than over here.

      Delete
    4. if the format makes sense i can get used to it pretty quickly imo... but he has a hitler thing going on, he has the blog comments, and then a forum link... he is dividing it up and likely weakening both... you know, have a forum but have the blog comments flow, why emulate a forum format with blog comments when you have a forum... doesn't make sense .... not impressed with the forum either.

      Delete
    5. Well, you know, you could just stop commenting or reading the comments. People have been complaining for months, and I think it's pretty clear by now that it's not going to change.

      Hitler thing? Come on, that's pretty melodramatic don't you think? You scared M.E.'s going to round up all the people into concentration camps?

      Delete
    6. Are you the M.E. spokesman now Medusa :)?
      With the Hitler comment, I simply meant that he is spreading himself thin, poorly.

      I just feel like complaining tonight.

      Delete
    7. I don't know how readers decide to use the comments or the forum translates into M.E. spreading herself too thin. She just writes the articles and that's all. The rest is under our control.

      Delete
  12. Well, if you have a blog with comments, and then add a forum link (on a blog), and then "everything that used to be here is there", and there is not so great, I would think "spreading thin" should be somewhat graspable to most. Is me a she? I thought ships and bitches were shes.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's another thing that sucks... navigating the comments.

      Delete
    2. Yes, everybody knows that it sucks.

      It's not being spread thin, it's just in two different places with varying amount of activity on both. It's a choice, not a prison.

      Delete
    3. And if M.E. did this just to annoy people, you are now a victim.

      Delete
    4. It's just a blog. It's my choice to complain about it too. Maybe he'll change it who knows? He should if he has any sense.

      Delete
    5. One positive is that people used to treat the blog like a forum or a chat room. So now have a real forum. Now the number of comments is a bit more reasonable for a blog, and it's difficult to engage in drama because navigating sucks.

      Delete
    6. Yeah but at the end of the day, I think anybody with sense is going to weigh I (M.E) was a little annoying versus my blog comment section sucks..

      Delete
    7. it probably is a little more manageable in terms of sheer posting for him

      Delete
    8. yeah actually I assume the blog owner is a he not a she and I assume not that he cares about the posters, but cares about feedback about the comment section

      Delete
    9. Plus I'm pretty sure she gets a copy of every comment in her email, so, yeah.
