"I don't like the glamorous nights so much. I usually leave depressed and I don't know why.... I like the local bar with money in the jukebox and a pretty girl next to me."
And you know where he hangs out when he's here Liz? MY bar, that's where...the one he got arrested at, Cowboys, aka Firebelly Lounge. Nope. he would NOT even go inside of those silly 'dance clubs' with "Dee Jay Time" and the slickly produced R&B and 'flavor-of -the-moment' bands...or whatever. But damn, y'all do favor...
I did a pic of you, sort of an 'oil painting' type look, of course you'll hate it, but still...
We are on a brief sabatical. Actually I'm moving across the way to a bigger appartment.
In an article for the Journal of Creative Behavior, Bonnie Cramond described her research and speculation on a link between creativity and attention deficit disorder in children. She also described the daydreaming and impulsivity of great thinkers and inventors and the difficulty they had in school.
Cramond tested children with ADD and found them highly creative. She also found that rountine, quiet, and structure was usually recommended for such children, although it was ineffective for them, at best. Instead, such children needed less structure, not more. In fact, their creativity could easily be stifled by rigid structure.
Copied that straight out of a book by the way. Just something I found interesting and it sort of spins off the content posted the other day from The Society books. It seems structure is not always the best policy. AND something else too, y'all did know Vince Vaughn has ADD, right? I bet Elvis did too, no one shakes there leg like that and says, "I can't help it" without having some issues with hyperactivity.
Naw it didn't happen like that, I told it like that to a group of people at the la-cross game this afternoon and they all laughed though. But yeah I did realize I hadn't put any contact info on the resume and had to resend. I'll keep ya posted on that one too. That position just sounds cool, know what I mean?
OK..you ready..Psychology and Life and we'll be skipping around as usual and going straight to assignment five where we will be discussing HABIT, "the enormous flywheel of society."
To study these books seriously might lend one's self to a master's thesis so really I'm just going to give you a general idea of how these books interpret psychology. I was skimming through the set, admiring the look of the books (the thick black leather, the signatures...all that good stuff) and I stopped at assignment five entitled, Human Being As Machine, Man, A Mass Of Habits and between those headings is a nice quote by Goethe about habit being the imperious of all masters. Immediately I was stressed, mainly because the development of any habit on my end, by nature, seems to be impossible and then the ones I have acquired are not of the good kind I am sure. Thinking I may be disheartened more, I read on. Why we humans do that is unbeknownst to me...no different than going to check out a strange noise you heard outside, in the middle of the night, with a serial killer on the loose. I mean it's either nothing or it's the serial killer right? OR it could be the dog you lost a year or so ago and other than a mild case of mange he's fine and happy to see you. Same goes for literature. You keep reading and what comes next might not be so bad after all. Point is, after launching off assignment five with the massive Goethe quote "The Society" while expressing that habits save time, relieve fatigue, are proficient, and allow development of all kinds of manners, they THEN went on to use the word DELUSION to imply that you people -you with your perfectly structured existences, all tend to be compliant in the thought that individuals must come into regular and orderly ways of acting or one might be "as fickle as the wind and as unreliable as the luck of a fisherman". And then the final question concerning the matter came down to laziness. (Did I mention I really am quite fond of these books) So you habitual type may wonder what laziness has to do with it all. Here in a nutshell..after about the age of thirty "the society" states that "We are too contented with ourselves. We love animal comforts and like to graze and lie down and chew the cud of the events of the past." If you need that hacked it means after about thirty your mental courage slips and your sort of stuck in programs of action, attitudes, thoughts, emotions and that basically you have given into the inevitable inertia of your nerves. And then for people such as myself, who find routine and habit out of site therefore out of mind, the society states, and I do quote "These kinds of mental creators will not be stopped in their tracks; they keep life moving ahead. They make it unfold its portals and reveal to them a continuous panorama. These people ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH; they bring us the fresh inspiration of the spring breeze. Without this touch of spring, the monotony of the average life would be like the wide-open stretches of the desert."
goodnight to you D...sorry bout you being all depressed and shit, if i could give you my strain of depression, I would. (as long as i didnt have to take over yours of course) Hey...you got me and
Gabby-Girl though so don't worry and try to be happy...:)
This is the quote Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI profiler, offered as an explanation to Ray Brent Marsh's stacking problems. No folks, I don't mean the stacking of bills, or paper work, but the stacking of 339 bodies that were thought to have been cremated long ago. On investigating the matter further, authorities now believe that Mr. Marsh had no criminal intent but rather a deep psychological condition. Here are a few theories offered on the matter.
- The guy had metadepression and lost ultra interest.
- He was deep rooted in some obsessive compulsive disorders
- AND GIVE ME A DRUMROLL PLEASE.... The man has a hoarding disorder
Hoarding Disorder- a little-understood psychological malady that has only recently been recognized as a mental health issue.
Those psycho anal people are too funny...:). Soon we'll have sub-hoarder category types, can't wait! Interested in my theory?? The man has a bad case of ADD and you know sometimes others help you introspect when you can't help yourself. So the police did all right on this one, but the court system should drop the 232 body charges and maybe pull some resources to get Mr. Marsh into some other line of work-work more accommodating to his condition for sure. Know too, it takes talent to be that eclectic, and if my theory means a hill of beans to anyone, I'd say the guy truly meant well by the whole mess and deserves a bit of mercy and compassion...shit.They were already dead anyway.
