Started with photoshop again. Lots of design gigs on the net and in real time and my windows partition is stuffed with a slew of creative applications. So am logging into windows again to get my creative ninja kicking. Linux is seething red with anger. But it’s the paper hustle. Need that scrilla for things to fall into place, for the puzzles to fit. So far I have remembered a lot about the software. Just need to flex my imagination to bring out unique creations. Watching video tutorials makes it so much easier. Pause and rewind when I need to parse something a little deeper. Youtube is indispensable for learning. These days I use video for all my learning needs from nodejs to data structures. Video worth more than a million words coming to a learning center near you. Keep grabbing knowledge with your grubby mindset.
I spend way too much time with machines. I walk the neighborhood streets with headphones permanently fastened to my head. Is that alienation? I come out for supplies and then pitch back in to the internet. I web work, web play, web sleep. My machines are constantly humming. Scripts are running all the time. I suspect there are millions like me. The web gave me gumption. Next level is to be making a lot more cheddar and pretty much morphing into a digital nomad. It will happen. Gotta train harder. Sleep and train. Eat and train. This age is all about skills. And knowing more than one geek thing. I write my nietzschean poetry, train and geek out. FTW.
Push back the manic thoughts. Let it ride to it’s own conclusion.
We don’t sleep enough in this geek age. Thus we think more or more madness drops down on our thoughtlines. Sometimes am up staring at the screen afraid to fall asleep lest I miss what I don’t know but I know it shouldn’t be missed. Then the thoughts strangle me and I better ride it out because it won’t quit before it’s time to quit. Funny how that I eventually fall asleep and miss that precise missing. Age of the geek. Age of paranoia.
Something about guns triggers the primal in lots of people. Dominica has caught the bug. Latest news from home is about shooting and killing. Talking to my friends on the net and the first thing is about how another youth got shot. Just like in ny. Big city vibes in a small nation. The solution. No solution. People don’t want to reason anymore. That gangsta shit is the norm. You better be gangsta or get disappeared. You be gangsta you get the girls. Not really. I rather be a geek. Geeks rule the world. The best trigger is a computer keyboard. Your brain is the best ammo ever. Can you tell that to 15 yr olds running their streets and slinging rocks? Hell no! They want to learn the hard way. They will learn the hard way. Dominica is learning the hard way. I got a brother back home so I am always paranoid when I go on Dominica news sites. Don’t want to see his mug on there twisted by bullets? He is a welder man. He got his shit to do. So keep your guns in your dreams. I could sell you a silver bullet for the witching hours when you can’t sleep. Blank them nightmares with silver bullets. You wake up with a new found appreciation for life. Life is precious. Gangsta is overrated. Don’t ever get it twisted.
