This thanksgiving was experimenting


Posted by slavezombie

I'm bad with dates. Even if I tried, dating would most likely turn out to be disastrously boring. That's why I celebrate major holidays month by month. December is the month of gift giving, so normally I wouldn't wait until the 25th to distribute gifts (to my closest relatives.). November is the month of thanksgiving, so it's pumpkin pie what's on the menu all month long. October- Halloween. Pumpkin patches. Here are some pictures I took of me cooking squash.

The recipe was wonderful and squash is a healthy food for me. I remember trying a butternut squash recipe long ago and I didn't like the way it turned out, but this one was great.

Online recipes printed with manual typewriters


Posted by slavezombie

Yummly app recipe
Yummly app recipe

Have you noticed how some online recipes that claim to offer printer friendly version tend to print with such tiny instructions, one needs to resort to digging up a magnifying glass to read it.  Then there's other recipes that require downloading an app in order to read their instructions.

I recently took my typewriter in for an overhaul as it was busted and in need of a $70 dollar part the size of a needle.  What I've noticed about the machine since I've been scarcely using it, is that the ink ribbon that was installed is much more saturated in ink than the online ink ribbons I've purchased in the past.  This recipe for butternut squash is probably one of the major typing jobs I've utilized my trusty old manual typewriter.  I've been using it for addressing envelopes only since I've gotten it back.  Still can't bring myself to creatively hashing out a scene or two for the #tmtwngm project. 

I think I'll take photos when I get around to making this dish and come back here and upload the pictures.  That's one of the things that I find helpful in following recipe instructions.  And anyone taking an interest in my printed version of this recipe might be puzzled in the way it describes cutting the squash.  In fact, anybody using this printed version may completely lose it when they try and figure out what the fuck Mildred the iguana has to do with the recipe.

Anybody know what I did to make the new lj editor recognize my dbl spacing after a period when I typ


Posted by slavezombie

The new editor on lj does something special for me and I don't remember if I deliberately tweaked lj somewhere (like in global edits or something) so that whenever I double space after a sentence, lj uses code to bypass how html recognizes double spacing and preserves my original keystrokes.  While slightly off topic, firefox browser acts funny on my MacBook in that the godaddy domain name I purchased for my lj blog doesn't load my page.  Instead it loads www dot livejournal dot com.  None of my other browsers behave this way.

So back to topic.  I have a permanent acct which means I'm allowed to alter the stylesheets I use, as well as the theme layers.  I've search in both places for how and why the new editor doesn't just remove the extra blank space after a period the way html is programmed to do, but I can't find anything.  It would be great if livejournal heard my bitching and ranting in the past of how disgruntled I was that double spacing was completely disregarded while using a monospace font.  It seems there still lies some romanticism in me as I dwell over preserving the writing rules applied when formatting a type written page on a vintage manual/electric typewriter utilizing monospace lettering (fonts).  Some people believe double spacing after a period is something of the past and should not be done anymore.  But I ranted my own argument in its defense and when a monospace/fixed-width font is used, I believe double spacing after a period should still be practiced.

Wouldn't it be great if livejournal heard me and did something about it.  That would be something for my résumé, I think.

road to Dodge Stadium
Took this picture because the congestion was frightening. I knew there was COVID testing at the Stadium but I never thought the traffic was so bad. The Sunset Blvd. entrance to the Stadium parking lot never indicated that traffic was bumper to bumper.
I tried to shoot the portable street sign which reads COVID testing but I guess because it's digital, and my camera wasn't set to 'live' exposures, I got the equivalent of shooting propellers from helicopters or planes. I might take a morning walk up to this entrance which isn't outrageously far from home just to try another exposure (with the camera settings set to "live".)
Not sure if I'm being clear, but iOS phones have a feature that allows the camera to take a brief video, a fraction of a second long, as a ploy to eliminate blinking people who constantly manage to come out in photos with their eyes closed. This way, if a person has their eyes shut, you can scroll thru the various exposure (like rapid bursts) and select a better shot. I don't know if it will fix the problem here with the digital sign, but I'm curious to find out.

Cows All females divided into two groups. First group consists of women who experience birthing/boring a cold, be it by caesarian or aborted. Group two are women who have never done so. Now, from the second group, select the most compatible female which you find attractive. This is your life partner/soul mate. Never raise children with this woman. Instead, share a mutual interest in philosophy. Don't confuse philosophy with your love of heavy metal, and scary sinister ideas as entertainment/movies. And most important, don't think with your dick. She isn't stupid. Now explain this to Dick & Jane.

Man, I try. Let's maybe chock this one up as Intro to Guitar/movies/exporting/saving/uploading 101. Dang, what a headache.

But the good news is this: change. The other day I was caught, at work, listening to to my favorite head banging radio station 100 hitz in Antelope Valley, California. I use the Android "Radio Garden" app. Of course, if I want to be in good standing with the boss, I had to comply and turn that stuff off. Suddenly there appeared a dark cloud over my head. I've always traded my outburst expressions, despite they being voiced under my breath, for the music I love to listen to; and that's worked by gagging the occasional "God damn-it!" when something goes wrong, because when I listen to heavy metal, I see it as background music to my own life story movie. In other words, I've convinced myself to shut the hell up whenever an outburst of profanity is under my tongue because I wouldn't want to interrupt the song I might be listening to with a random expletive. I mean, it isn't like I was following along with the lyrics. It's been helpful. The dark cloud over my head isn't because music lovers have been shortchanged by the government (FCC) by forcing radio stations to pay a steep fine if they air metal songs with explicit lyrics.

For starters, how would anybody know since the lyrics in metal are completely muffled by the strong guitar, or even the grunge-like voice in which metal lyrics are usually hollered?

That day I got in my car and drove home for lunch. At least I could listen to my head banging tunes in peace in my car, and boy was it fitting with that dark cloud lingering over my head. All I could think of was, it's okay to play girly pop songs in the office but when a heavy metal song comes up, oh my god, turn it off. Too taboo. etc.

This year, because of my ferns, I decided to conjure up some dragonflies as I've read online that dragonflies eat a hella lot of mosquitos. The ferns I grow need to be moist and so that section of garden produces a lot of mosquitos. I also learned that dragonflies are attracted to certain type of plants. Black-eyed Susans, which I could not grow this year, and a variety of the latter called Spanish Eyes. That one did take off. And it's a beautiful flower. So I come home for lunch and what do I see but a dragonfly just hovering above my house as if it was a drone. Sorry, but I couldn't get footage of that. Instead, I've been working to put together a stop motion video of the plant as it progressively expanded and bloomed. What a fail that was, even with the background music of me on guitar trying to learn SLAYER's Dead Skin Mask. Oh well, maybe I'll get better next time.

I dunno if you’ve ever seen pictures of two bodies of water pertaining to two different oceans. Adjacent to one another, yet not mixing together.  I’m fascinated by Amy Deanna skin the same way. Just want to trace the borders of skin tones with my finger in a caressing way.

What kind of role might this attractive model, Winnie Harlow, star in if she were an actress?  I’d watch her as an anti-hero any day.

I don't socialize becuz… don't mean I'm anti-social damn it!


Posted by slavezombie



Proud Boys is a gang and that's where I'll always stand on the subject.  Karate, Kung-fu, Judo and various other denominational disciplines all have one thing in common.  They practice self defense, preaching ways to disarm your assailant long enough to get away from danger.  But what if it was possible to disarm an assailant, not run away, and dispatch the mofo to the next life?  Is there such a thing, and could it be Krav Maga, wherein students are taught to recognize opportunities wherein a criminal threatens your life and killing that individual would appear as self defense, or else, nobody could possibly find evidence that you were the person who snuffed him out?

And where does the concept of hot pink police uniforms enter the scene?  I say this a lot:  started out with a dream of becoming a syndicated cartoonist for print journalism, picked up a bit of calligraphy skills to improve my lettering capability, then ended up studying screenwriting because all my comic strip panels sucked.  All of my decisions in hobbies revolved around improving my ability to draw cool cartoons with legible print and interesting concepts.

Before all of that, when I didn't know what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, I feared gang violence.  Growing up in Echo Park in the 70's public schools exposed me to a lot of that stuff, and I wouldn't consider myself a wimp.  I have vague memories as a child rough housing with my papa; and one of my birthday presents as an adolescent were boxing gloves, although I had no siblings to play with as I only had older sisters.  So it is, the growing pains of a boy who is NOT a wimp, but has no skills ends up being a victim of memory loss from all the head trauma resulting in losing street fights.

This is all old news as I repeat myself over and over again as if I can explain myself better each time I tell this story.  Welp, here's something new you didn't know about me.  The concept of ROTC in school never clicked inside my brain that this group of patriotic youth focused on things like martial arts, guns, and doing their damnedest to portray themselves as the model citizen.  Puberty done threw me for a loop in high school and it's something I will never forget because I was plundered to the point of becoming a stuttering, blithering idiot who couldn't for the life of me hold a decent conversation with the opposite sex, but before that happened, I had spent quite a bit of time with a girl who ripped my heart out.  A popular girl who, two years my senior, practiced celibacy which at my age was like Krav Maga.

Simply put, necking and heavy petting involve a lot of twisting and squirming.  In adulthood, when a kiss progresses to that, it can only mean one thing, sex.  Yet, as my gf and I did that, she left me on 3rd base indefinitely and that, my friends, is something I like to call ball-busting.  So much pain when the twisting and squirming squishes my balls, sex should be mandatory whenever two people are exploring each other's sexuality.  So I fucked her in a way nobody can possibly understand.  I cheated.  Who with?  My memory isn't too clear on this, but I believe I fucked my gf by cheating on her with a female member of the Proud Boys.

Not too long ago, I was detained by the girl's brother wearing a law enforcement uniform, a badge and a gun.  And this is where the story begins, where hot pink uniforms impact the plot as if nothing out of the ordinary is occurring, other than the policemen in the story are not "men in blue" but "men in pink."  This is where I'm at; call it writers' block, call it stupid, but it's my opinion that there are fake cops out there keeping close record of their nemesis and trying to gather as much information about them for their kill list.  So, I decided that if I ever succeed in writing a successful screenplay that is in the filming stages, if a scene in my screenplay calls for a man in uniform, it will be a hot pink uniform because I would like to distinguish who is working in my films as a cop over who is working for my films as a cop.

Hmm. ‘You can’t even say law enforcement, [sleepyJoe]’

Let’s analyze this in such a way that doesn’t piss off the Russians, mainly LiveJournal. What exactly does a phrase like this mean. I believe it infers defunding. It doesn’t seem like a phrase remotely similar to saying such things as beelzebub, which god fearing people like myself understand may be a sin even if saying it isn’t an attempt to conjure up evil.

Law enforcement. History has shown us powerful civilizations wherein edicts are past banning such things as voicing names like Moses and such. I go around taking pictures of law enforcement, not because I admire them or feel like they are heroes deserving recognition wherever they go. Mainly, I’ve been seeing law enforcement so much everywhere I go, it’s become a concern, and I came up with the idea that it would make a good subject to use all the many camera apps available to find the one that fits my needs. That, and the fact that I see a future wherein police uniform reform will one day become hot pink uniforms, so the fact that the future is not yet here, to me, says simply that all police are out of uniform. Law enforcement.

It’s always been puzzling how the color spectrum transitions to 50 shades of grey. Does a black and white photo of a red flower next to a green leaf appear darker or lighter to its surroundings. That’s all. No need to get the FBI involved.

I don’t notice so many cops around anymore, but sometimes I feel that they’re watching me watch them. It could be the blue rittenhouse rubber gloves holding the thick ass Sonim XP8 Mobile phone that may easily be mistaken for a hand gun. Who would ever have guessed that photography could be so stressful.

Lately, I've notice a slur in my speech and pondered the idea that I might've caused some serious damage that one day I carelessly got plundered in a fist fight way back in bygone days; and every other concussion I've sustained throughout the years, like bumping into trees and signs. Welp, all I can say about that is good thing I didn't have children. But it's a serious a crutch. For instance, flirting with women is near impossible. It's as if I have a slight touch of Tourettes Syndrome. I mean, light flirting doesn't exist with me if I find a woman attractive. I can't control the bluntness. It's almost like I'm trying to break the ice, kill the monotony and things like "Do you like to be spanked?" come out of my mouth. If you've ever seen the movie Sex driver, it's like the two brothers who drive the green sports car and talk to every hot girl that's within earshot saying such things like "you wanna make out?"

And I'm forgetful. I could learn a person's name one minute and forget it the next. For some reason, writing is different. Whoever said I don't sound like the way I write said a mouthful. I think the vibration of words that come out of my mouth reverberates in my skull causing headaches, and when I get headaches, the first thing I do is curse up a storm. Have you ever injured yourself, causing a contusion, and blurted out some sort of profanity in exclamation?

Back to topic: leaders who prohibit talking. I don't know where I heard this, but during the course of attempting to solve the enigma of the Peruvian megalithic structures I've stumbled onto a few interesting theories that ancient people, before the Inca, were not allowed to talk and write. I believe there's some truth to this because the native people of America kept no history about their culture. So when I hear on TV that sleepy Joe cannot say law enforcement, it's like going back to the stone age.

The black and white project is getting old and I don't know how long I will continue to sling my camera out every time I see a patrol car pass. If you've seen one cop, you've seen then all (unless they're breaking the law.) And then you've gotta ask yourself, what good is a photo of a cop breaking the law if it's in black and white. Most footage you see on TV these days breaking news of wrongful death shootings are in color. That'll be the day when a cop is caught abusing his power on film and the media decides to air it in duo tone. I guess I'll be able to take credit for that since I'm trying to start a national pastime of shooting cops on film in black and white.

It isn't an aesthetic thing either. I choose to use black and white settings on my camera because it takes up less memory space. Here I've uploaded photos from yesterday's adventure. I left out a picture of my sister who had married a cop, then divorced him, who happened to be at my work just standing around. But you can see by these photos how it seems like the FBI has become involved. I mean, last week I was shooting cops driving by and I would see ghetto bird (cop helicopters) moments later. I can't find any information on the building filling the background of the SUV patrol car either. My vivid imagination paints a picture of ammo storage facility.

I took a few pix of some graffiti that was tagged at my work. Funny how my building got tagged but the ammo facility is pristine. What lies ahead for libraries in these troubled times? Will we find ourselves defending books from being burned? First it's a ban on voicing the words law enforcement, next we'll be adopting a culture of wearing masks when in the vicinity of another human being. I don't know about you, and small business has never been a friend to me, but during this shut down as a result of Covic does the air smell better since not so many people are driving to work?
