Skipped, indefinitely

October 24, 2010

Time to admit it: this ain’t working. We can wait endlessly for the internet to do its magical work of discovering us semi-automatically. But the honourable thing to do is to acknowledge once and for all that it just costs too much effort to be discovered semi-automatically. What with all the posting of comments on semi-popular websites and all of the trying to establish a personal relationship with people who you are physically impossible to meet (and that will always prefer the people they actually met when young and that they can, without hesitation, call their friends) and what-not-else that shouldn’t be but simply is the case.

So I’m going to focus my energy elsewhere until I’m really bored enough to do what one has to do to be successful. For, over time, there will come the time when I can sit in bars patiently suffering the self-centered boringness of successful people (people who have a say) and when I can spend time joining in on the innocent fun of those that have chosen at a younger time the right path (and are now mad at the world, but at least they are mad as part of an in-group).

Bye bye for now.

[On the off-chance that the internet makes a miracle: contact me via mail or leave a comment.]



Skipped (4)

October 19, 2010

This time I even skipped posting the fact that I skipped a post. What can I say? No friends? Too busy?


Skipped (3)

October 10, 2010

Still busy reorganzing an inconspicuous little piece of the world in order to make it imperceptibly more efficient. But do not judge me!

Skipped (1)

We are having problems being intrinsically motivated, and this mainly because of a lack of extrinsic stimulation. But we do want to leave you this: Read the rest of this entry »

Earnest tries but …

September 12, 2010

… fails. Miserably. At attracting attention, I mean. It is one thing to admit failure and another thing alltogether to admit that that failure is due to yourself. I only admit failure. What I do not admit is that I am the one who needs to change if I want to have success. Go fuck yourself! I don’t want to have success. I know what it takes to have success. You suck up – you comply – you forget what you really wanted and you replace it with what others want you to really want (and they, they want this only because they know they wanted something else than what they let themselves be sold into wanting before they sold themselves out to wanting others to want exactly the same thing that they wanted ‘because it’s reality, man, you just need to get used to it’ and all that shit). Let them bloody well go fuck themselves if they allow themselves to be fucked into wanting to fuck us over into fucking others over like they were fucked over.

My way, and all that shit. “Not original.”, you say? Well you are not original either then and if you have let yourself to be convinced by the powerful motherfuckers of ‘Be normal, don’t even try because people will find you laughable.’ leave us the fuck alone coz’ we are just doing our thing and we couldn’t care less whether it is original or bombastic or cliché or ridiculous. We couldn’t care less when we turn out to be average and stuff. There’s nothing wrong as far as we see with people, certainly not on the average. As long as we don’t have to settle for being average (worse: for being better than average in an average kind of way) it is OK. So many motherfuckers get praise, so much beauty is left undiscovered – we are fine with it … as long as you don’t want us to become a motherfucker because you believe praise is a sign of beauty.

No more Mr. Nice Guys. We know we will get there. So shut the fuck up and click the bloody links below the fold …

Break in Summer

July 17, 2010

You have been cool. In fact, you have been so cool that you get this.

It also has been cool. Well, cooler at least. Not quite cool enough to start fulfilling Earnest promises (see here). Not way cool but just about cool enough to give you a couple of dorky old aphorisms (a.k.a. things to say at dinner tables that’ll make you look wise and slightly weird, just about weird enough for people to avoid you respectfully).

Summer Break

July 9, 2010

Sorry fellas, it’s too hot for me to handle (and yes, O’Nest was right, you were not nice).

We’re outta here, at least until such time as the number 8 figures in the second and fourth positions of the, abbreviated, date code. You have some catching up to do anyways …

So you’ll be missing this: Read the rest of this entry »

An O’Nest Letter

July 4, 2010

Sorry, no, you are not getting any this week. As long as the number of readers of this is not in balance with the numbers that have read that, we’re on strike. What we mean with ‘as long as’ is, precisely, ‘until next week’.

In the meantime, please find below my letter to Earnest: Read the rest of this entry »

OK then, I’ll continue to play. When I see poor Guido struggling & realize neither of us was giving the poor guy feedback I know I should be grateful for having you (I’m being O’Nest here).  Posting the present excerpt I hope Guido will, like I will, heed the message of the poem on which it (and frankly most of this, our, book) is based:

Relax, don’t do it.
When you want to go to it.
Relax, don’t do it!
When you want to come.

Anyway, for people who like your dinner conversation advise: Read the rest of this entry »

O’Nest questions

June 20, 2010

Here it is: chapter 4: the chance to think for yourselves, solving some action-packed exercises.

And no, I’ll be O’Nest, you won’t be getting the answers yet.

Unless of course …
