ABOUT THIS EPISODE

"Something is different this time," "It feels like something is happening." Nope. Things are better than usual. We just have the internet constantly overflowing our senses with divisive "content." Turn off social media and listen to music or take a nature hike.

Day 12 of the August Daily Episode Challenge

He, Oh hey, don't worry about me I'll, befine, so, what's up Thursday, Twelfth Shit sohappy it's Thursday, I was reading an article, not the first. I've read whereI've heard this statement, something like a I don't know. Something isdifferent this time as if you know society is like, Oh my God, somethinghuge is happening. What is it such a mystery? Well, what is you break? Why? Why do you think that what does your ego make? You think that,oh, my God, this is like more trying times than we've ever been through inthe history of earth. You know what it is. There's one thing:THAT'S DIFFERENT: the Internet! That's, what's different, you see thingshappening immediately and humans are affected with mimesis. All we do isMimic Shit and trying to copy what we...

...see, but with the fucking Internet you see it sofast. There's no filters. There's no guard rails. You think you got tofollow every trend and chase every little thing. It's driving you crazy,especially when the Internet gets infected with negative news and you nodistrust in the power structure, and things like that. Well and here's whatdrives me crazy about that that term? It's something's different this time,then, when were you here, the last time some crazy shit was going on I, the last time I mean when I was ateenager fuck, the president got shot as that happen in a while. has therebeen a political assassination of any kind? No, we were at a Cold War withthe US Sr. Russia was the whole continent, like all of the states, andRussia was the US SR and they had their fucking inner continental ballisticmissiles pointed at us.

This sounds like some o s bullshit, but in the s you know backto the future, ghost busters all that stuff. We still had air raid sirens andair red drills at school, because we were almost at a nuclear war withRussia and who was the President Reagan, and then someone shot him, but you knowwhat, because news was slower, we didn't have the Internet, as kids were like us, some one shot,the president is he dead? No okay, cool fuck that Guy Anyway, and we just goton with it. We didn't dwell. We would get up the next morning and smoke somepot and hop on our skateboards and go to school be done with it. We wouldn'tbe arguing about. Like did you get your shots, not fuck. We always got ourshots back in the day, anti vexers weren't a thing why? Because theydidn't have the Internet to spread their nonsense. That's why the idea ofdining a nuclear war was so entrenched in our psyche. That one time when Itook acid with my buddies,...

I thought we were about to dieliterally. I literally thought that I mean. Obviously I was tripping on acid,so it wasn't happening, but what had happened was we had? We wereup in Sacramento and we used to like to hang out on the river, and there was athis one bridge the crossed over the river, far oks bridge and that particular night. We could seereally far like all the way to the bay area. Almost let's don't know twenty thirty miles itseemed like we could see. Well. Sacramento was also home to manyair force bases well under the influence of acid. Simultaneously, I saw a full moon riseabove a lone cloud over the bay area, and I saw a strata fortress is gigantic. Nuclear bomber that would fly out ofSacramento flying at midnight is super.

Late at night were tripping on acid,like a Friday or Saturday night and effectively. I thought I just saw thatfull moon rising over that solo cloud. I thought that was a nuclear explosionand that we were about to feel the force of the nuclear blast. I juststood on that bridge and clung to the fence. I could hardly even speak. Youknow I was like having a panic attack or something- and you know my friends-they weren't quite tripping as hard as I was so they're like do what the fuckcome on, and I like Whoa. So at that moment I thought we were dead and the cops had seen our car parked onthe Upper Bank of one side of the river, where we weren't supposed to parkapparently, and they thought that by yelling on their bull horns that wewere just going to come out like fuck, that we're high we'refucking frying on acid, so we're like ducked under the under side of thebridge and we're not coming out to the cops on the other side of the river.Just for what so we get in trouble, get a ticket, possibly Takingg, to jail orsomething we were seventeen, maybe...

...sixteen. I don't think we would havegone in jail, but anyway we thought we were well shit. We hung out there longenough. I guess they thought they would fuck with us and called in a helicopter.So then there's like a sheriff helicopter flying right above thebridge, shedding his bright ass Vietnam kind of spotlight from his helicopter downthrough the planks in the bridge and we're swearinglike Oh fuck. Don't let that light hitch, you don't let the we're justcook O O is a fucking helicopters super loud under their reverberating off theriver and the pilings of the bridge and after about seemed like three hoursthey finally left. I think it was maybe twenty minutes, but time stretches whenyou're on acid long and short of it. My point is: That's how entrenched wewere in the idea of dying in a war like with another country. It was just partof our existence, so the idea that some fucking goof ball. You know conspiracy,theorists are gonna like overtake a...

...building, we're like yeah a big deal,just whatever water cannon them, that's what they do. Water candones, you knowbayonets. They used to shoot people back in the day straight up, LOOK UPKENT STATE! That was a thing you know where the fucking Army National Guardjust open, fired on some kids protesting on the lawn and literallymurdered a bunch of kids. Well, they did that in the past. I wouldn't besurprised if they did it again, it's my point. Being things are not like. Oh,my God, this is different this time. Yes, in the sense that we have theInternet, but people that were old enough toexperience some shit way back in the day. Well, you were younger back thenso you experienced it different anyway. So there's no comparison for anybody onthis planet to say: Yeah, it's different this time so just shut up,it's not different. Things are going to be fine. Just got to wear a God. Damnmask. Let's speak fucking deal, nobody ever protested wearing shoes orpants with the mask. Why just wear...

...masks? Even if you don't want to get ashot? Wear a mask, don't be a Dick! Oh, so here's the thing. So you knowemo Joe the logo for Emo Dojo. Like the Gin Yang logo I made well. I turned it into an n FT yeah, it's kind of complex process.It's just a whole weird thing: You have to basically get some ethereum, so you have to start alike a coin base account and they'd get a coin base wallets and then load someethery and coin. And then you have to put some ethereum into one of the FT platforms,kind of like open sea or Lazo. Whatever I used open sea and then I put juststarted a gallery of all a bunch of emo, Joe kind of characters that have drawnover the past couple of years, since we've done the podcast, so that's kind of cool...

...and well. I did it kind of becausethere's some every once in a while. I find my shit on like Amazon or Ebay, where people have just taken my logo inor printing stupid things with it. I doubt they make much money, but it's the principle, the matter theyshould just ask or acknowledge the fact that they stole it or something, but inthe world of the future, emo do joe and the Emo, Jo logo, isn't nfd so to lockit down that way. By the time you hear this twitter may have l, let me back ontwitter, they might have. My suspension may have ended so yeah. I can get your messages andcomment and Shit like that. But anyway I learned about the twitter, Algorithmsand yeah. I don't. I don't even know why Ibother with twitter. However, I do see people from the old days ontwitter now and then, like Moody Spice, just a shout out to Moody Spice, it'sgood to see you out there, I'm glad...

...you're doing okay. I hope everyone elseis fine too, and I also heard from my old friendAnaca that that black cat we had rescued maxine waters, the little kittythat we rescued from the freezing under the house got retested now she's a grown up,obviously a year and a half or two later, whatever she does not havefeline Fiv Muniis whatever. So that's great,so good news. Generally, all around my fucking shingles healed up and I'mstarting to gain use of my left shoulder more and more each day, I'mstarting to feel like myself and getting back to the typical ups anddowns of just you know having a mood disorder yeah. So I've been practicing gratitude. Lots of it always try to look at thingsopposite like if I'm feeling down or whatever just try to have an oppositeday and look at everything from a different vantage point and even to the extent of like doingthings differently like driving a...

...different way to work or trying tobrush my teeth. With my left hand, things like that, whatever it takes to try to look atthings from a different perspective, instead of feeling gloomy and like Idon't fit in, I just try to make a list of the things I'm thankful for, and thelist keeps getting longer. You are probably on that list. So thank you forbeing here. So that said, going to do Friday. Night show tomorrow, with my buddy g shock in the bay area,they're getting hit hard by the coved again lockdowns, and all that bullshitand proof of vaccines and everything is really stressing a lot of people outand the Division that causes so anyway. Hopefully that episode will go on asplanned. Just wanted to listen to some Friday new music tomorrow and see ifthere's any cool rock songs that just came out that we might be interested in right, coolall right. That's all I got for tonight...
