Ray Noland: Blago / Banksy –
First, I made the following comment at Huffington post, you can see the article I commented on here –
Second, here is my embellished comment: I am / was a big fan of all the Blago/Banksy graffiti that were sprayed all around Chicago – and I covered it extensively in 3+ Posts on my blog “The Structure of Thought™ – this is the way it has always been®”. It’s my opinion that you cannot patent a “style” of art ( you can invent a style, however, so that something can be “Banksy-esque” so to speak, even tho he didn’t “invent” it ) just like a medical or big pharma company can’t “Patent” a gene or a chromosome – even tho the law says you can. Just because it is legal, doesn’t make it right.
That being said, the whole point of Art in its highest calling IMO is to generate positive Thought Structure™, discussion, and push society towards enlightenment. If you go back and read my posts on Ray’s Art it shows the noblest aspect to what the purpose of ANY art can do – call attention to issues, our culture, the flaws in our society, our misplaced values and dysfunctional aspects of the Pop Culture we have created. That is powerful, how one individual can help push society towards the positive.
If you think about it, one good idea can change everything. Hopefully for the better.
Check out the Blago/Banksy entries I talked about here & here – there’s at least 3 updates, with 2 being in the first link, showing pictures from Wicker Park, Bucktown, the Skylark fire pic with some shots of me warming myself next to the cold, empty fire that Blago is trying to start… pretty fun stuff. Check them out…
Well, it’s the halfway point in the 2009 baseball season, and I thought this would be a good time to throw my hat into the ring in regards to this familiar and annoying topic. I’ve had this conversation with many people, as all baseball fans tend to do amongst themselves.
Why can’t they pay baseball players according to their statistics, instead of to what their potential seems to be? How many times have we seen a guy sign a big contract, for zillions of dollars, in ANY sport, not just baseball—only to see the athlete just tank and under-perform the next season.
Then there’s the owners, all the variables that go along with running a league, merchandising, licensing, agents bargaining… so many things that affect the bottom line in regards to any pay structure, and to expand, on any economic model. And as an artist and not being born with a left-side of my brain (I use that part of my skull for Christmas ornament storage), talking money is a true stretch for my poor little lonely right brain to handle.
So I don’t know why I am obsessed with how I think ‘we’ should pay baseball players—maybe it’s because it has led me to a way to combine different Structures of Thought™ on how to cope with this March to Ruin that is our economy right now—or whatever the corporatocracy wants us to believe at this moment in history. Since the entire system is basically shot, now is the time to just change the whole structure—not just the Thought Structure, but the entire economic process. And we can start by trying it out on how we pay baseball players.
First of all, the NFL more closely follows this model, by somewhat pooling all their revenue and approaching the distribution of money within the league, the use of salary caps, and the loose philosophy that health of the league as a whole is in the best interest of all teams, and that parity within the league gives all a better chance at winning. Plus it keeps all fans interested, because every year their team has a chance. Read the rest of this entry »
I found this audio selection about six months ago, and I have listened to it maybe 10-15 times since. I think I had heard of Earl Nightingale before, and he reads this philosophy very convincingly. And I really like how it starts… Men simply don’t think. How true is this in our million mile an hour world today?
There is a lot of insight and truth in this message—and it’s obvious even today with all the hubbub that popped up about “The Secret” about what, 2 years ago now? Read the rest of this entry »
‘The mind is like a parachute—it doesn’t function unless it is open.’
It’s an annoying quote, but it is true. And like one of my favorite quotes from Voltaire – ‘I (may) not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it,’ Free speech is a beautiful thing, when it is used with brilliant analogy, tact, and truthful, organized, Positive Thought Structure™.
MEP Daniel Hannan from England—once an unknown “backbencher” in Parlament is becoming an overnight sensation in our New Electronic Age… for this speech, or I should say ‘Flambe’ of PM Gordon Brown of Great Britian.
As an open-minded Spiritualist slash tree-hugging Bleeding Heart Artist that I am, I will acknowledge ANYONE who speaks Truth to Power—and what Daniel says from the right side of the aisle makes an incredible amount of sense to me. He’s young, ( 37 ) obscure, and politically green – until now. My theory is that he’s too new to have been bought off by the NWO secret government banking cartel that is trying to vacuum up every last penny, freedom and control mechanism in this physical realm we call existence on planet earth.
Hopefully his bravery of shaking the tree will jostle even more of us to awakening to the fact that there is a struggle ongoing for all of our hearts and minds… Check out his apperance on the Faux Netwerkz’ ‘Your World with Neil Cavuto’:
I absolutely love watching Cavuto physically Flinch when Hannan expresses his admiration for Ron Paul—that’s pretty much worth the price of admission itself right there. And it once more shines the light of truth on the difference between those on the dole for anything from special interest to the illuminati, and someone who has his own brain, his own soul, his own mind, and speaks with certainty, truthfulness, and conviction.
If the Conservatives in this country were this articulate, had a plan ( Hannan has written a number of books, the latest being The Plan: Twelve months to renew Britain ) and thought with their heads instead of their ‘Wankers’ and Faux religious Facades, and didn’t look at everything as with/against, Black/White, I’d give them more credit like I am giving this guy. Keep making sense and Creating Positive Thought Structure™ for all of us, Daniel… anything to drag the powers that be into a more benevolent physical existence.
Read this Blog entry by Daniel… he’s thoughtful, insightful, humble, articulate… and he sums up the ending of my particular blog entry much better than I can. Again, Bravo – and Conservatives – take a lesson from this Kid. Hopefully his convictions, morals and spine with remain strong and pure of heart.
I was watching the season premiere of Real Time with Bill Maher the other day. His panel and he were talking about the predicament we, as a global society, are all experiencing right now. And their conversation reminded me of all the Discovery Channel / History Channel / Nova / Carl Sagan etc. shows I have ever seen, talking to scientists, physicists, chemists, micro biologists and what not , talking about Quantum Physics, the smaller aspects of what makes up our “physical” Omniverse™.
And what do they conclude?
To sum up, it is basically this: the closer they look at what makes up what we perceive as solid “Matter”—the more they break that down and peer into the Atoms, thru the Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons, smaller and smaller into the quarks and all their variety, the more they look into what actually makes up the physical “universe”, the more they realize it is made up of… emptyness. Empty space.
Now that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything there. Vibrating energy is something, in a metaphysical sense.
But I think this Quantum Physics analogy towards the Banking Industry is a proper and justified.
My reasoning is this—in all the explanations I have seen in regards to how banking works, the Federal Reserve ( from Zeitgeist ) and the mystery and yes, conspiracy that surrounds it, there is a correlation to how banks “behave” and how electrons “behave”. When the smallest of the building blocks are observed, they behave one way, but when they are not under direct supervision, they behave in a completely different fashion.
As with the banks—without solid regulations, checks and balances and accountability, they behave one way… pretty much like a “wave”—nothing is really there. But when they are within the brightly shining spotlight, and the microscope is focused squarely on them, we find that the banking system can behave like a particle, with seemingly solid substance. As long as it is being observed and held to a higher standard—a standard based on substance, preferably Gold… at least that is how it has always been done, until recently.
Very similar… Banking and Quantum Physics.
it is interesting—both seem to rely very heavily upon faith.
Not to be too long winded about this, ( ha ha ) but in linking my Thought Structure™ researching the videos for this post, one of the words that the scientists kept coming back to over and over in regards to how Atoms, and more specifically electrons, behave, they talk about the potential of the atom, and the energy that it possesses.
As the above clip from “what the bleep do we know” so eloquently demonstrates, our comprehension of what reality is and how we perceive it is changing at a dramatic rate. It is my contention that the monetary system, this “old style” of control, has totally limited the potential of mankind itself. It has convinced all of us to focus on something that gives over all our control to a very small group of people whose only thought has been to keep all of us in the dark and to milk us for all potential.
We have outgrown this method of “debt enslavement.”
The human race can do so much better, don’t you think? That’s where Positive Thought Structure™ comes into play—it has always been, we just need to recognize that it is there for us always.
The Power of Intention – it cuts both ways. And there are so many unenlightened humans, mired in the morass of Negative Thought Structure™… the heaviness and negativity of all these conspiracies to keep us dumbed down, to limit us as to who we really are—it is my hope that those within the halls of this so called “power” evolve along with the rest of us and strive for a new way to be.
President Obama Invited Mr. Abess, the example I called out in my blog last week, to his State of the Union speech last night. I was so busy spraining my brain ( Literally ) that I wasn’t able to watch the speech until this morning getting ready for work.
Here’s the video of the end of the speech… Like I reiterate in my blog below – we have to address the fact that we need Behavioral Change. Yes, it is scary—but you know what? It feels good to be Generous!
So many times in watching Obama deliver this very effective and motivating speech, I wanted to puncuate his comments with the phrase, “…you greedy F****’n bASTahds!” Yes, that is strong language… however—I believe it is justified. I mean, c’mon, people… the time for hidden, selfish, petty agendas is DONE. There is more to life than to squish the hopes and dreams of this beautiful planet for the sake of control by the very powerful and very few. Let’s give it a try.
First – been so busy, haven’t been able to post! So I apologize.
Second – check out this link to this banker in Florida – I heard about this from the Drudge Report on Monday.
This guy—no matter what his modivation is—gave at least a large part of his fortune away… to the people who worked for him! Talk about setting a positive example, Leonard Abess Jr. does it.
I read the comments at the end of the article… many say, “oh, it’s a tax issue” or “He’s a money launderer” or whatever. Maybe it is true. But—hey! Sharing is caring – it’s not that hard.
It must be… because there is so little of it in our modern western culture.
Or maybe it just goes unreported… because doing good just doesn’t get the ratings or sell the magazines & newspapers that crazy octuplet moms, monkey assaults and Drew Peterson’s girlfriend—and general paparazzi distractions that people seem to think are more interesting. Like a train wreck… you just can’t look away.
Hopefully, now actions like this will start to take some president over all the bad behavior that we seem to devour like starving people looking for a morsel. I wonder why this is.
There must be some sort of addictive quality to all the interest in this part of our culture—and the ho-hum attitude towards those who act in a dignified, reasonable manner that set such a good example. I hope that we start to recognize the Positive Thought Structure™ that goes into bringing that most difficult of example into this particular physical realm we are inhabiting at this time.
Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!
Thank you, word press peeps. In the tradition of word press, I will say that this is my first formal blog as “blameblakeart”… leaving the “starter tags” in place. In future posts, when I’m having a writer’s block (which is where I’ve been the past week, struggling for time and topic) I will explain my name. Guesses are welcome – take a shot.
I initially sent out an email to a limited list of pals with my first trial blog. The feedback – too long. Oh, and Ariana H. sez keep it short, too. So instead of doing a “60 Minutes” style of entry, maybe I’ll try breaking it up into shorter, more numerous entrys.
So here is the condensed email I sent, in blog format. Isn’t this exciting? I think so.
Gang o’ Pals:
I have made up my mind to start blogging, which is long overdue. What else do you expect from the King Of Procrastination?
I would appreciate any feedback you’d like to give me.
I have been researching various blogging sites and am going to formally set one up in the next week or so.
The title will be:
“Positive (+) Thought Structure™ – dragging reality towards a better physical realm”
or some other hippie bullshit title that sounds better than that.
What I hope to achieve is a 60 Minutes type format, with me eventually video-blogging about issues of the day and how it braids in with my “delusional” world view – an open forum to generate discussion, opinion, fame and fortune until I take my rightful place in seat of judgment of every and all.
Irony, humor and humiliation included of course.
So don’t fer-git…!
I’m not serious, but somehow, I am serious. Seriously.
Annnnywhey, I say 60 minutes because I respect the show, and I had one of those “meant to be—fabric of reality” moments about 3 years ago. I specifically remember one story was about a battle in Iraq at Fallujah – when the whole 3 stories of show + Andy Rooney seemed to flow together so well, and the ideas weaved their information and moral lessons—that I was able to sense the deeper, logical pattern to it all.
That this is exactly how me seeing that “pattern” is playing out, and that this is how it has always been, an eternal type of a feeling.
Eh, you probably don’t.
But that’s just me and me brain. So I’d like to share some o’ dat with all of youse.
But – those of you who experience my “acquired taste” friendship in dealing with me on a regular basis well know that this is nothing new… this happens to me more often than knot.
So some thoughts to start out with – And please note, just because “I saw it on the Internets, that automatically means it’s true” Yes, I am aware. But this “cosmic entanglement” of the thoughts itself is apart of my unwritten master thesis that Positive (+) Thought Structure™ is based upon… so take it as you will.
This first short video is After Effects and Final Cut production, of which I want to desperately learn to make my own of this magnitude. But it shines a light on the real attitude of the people of Iran – really the Youth of Iran, and how they are trying to deal with how the powers that be are purposely shaping the reality we all are collectively experiencing. It looks like they’ve taken it down, I’ll try to find it and update the post later.
Knext people, linked in the “cosmic entanglement” ( which is a real theory that is gaining favor among the scientific community, some say ( fox news ) ) heh just kidding – I bit the bullet about 4 months ago and watched a 2 hour vid by this brave man, pastor Lindsey Williams.
In a knutshellski, he was a pastor for the oil companies up in Alaska during the building of the pipeline, and befriended all the New World Order “Those who REALLY run the world” fellahs and now has his finger on the pulse of world events as they are unfolding NOW. This particular link is about 4-6 months old, and is a very interesting view, in regards to the Election, the price of oil, and… our attitude toward Iran. Thus the Thought Structure™ behind that particular segue.
And last, here’s an hour long vid about “Creative Design” vs. Darwin. This is particularly close to me heart, because it parallels my own feelings in regards to how we all are weaving this tapestry of reality. If you can get thru it all, you’ll be like – “What the F***?” It is super-cool and informative – and I really love all the scientist’s attitudes at the end of the piece. Truly amazing.
So to quote my dad, on how he ends the majority of his wordy emails, in his own signature style:
Well! There you have it for now!
Hey don’t hesitate to let me have it – I appreciate the feedbag. I know everyone is busier than a cat in a roomful of paperhangers at a beauty contest with Miss South Carolina fillin’ cavities at a convention of termite enthusiasts channeling spock on meth.
See, that’s what their TRYING to do to you®.
So thanks again, and enjoy my “particular” frequency.
In moor wheys than won.
