The net is vast …
To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another and do not live alone—to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone. From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of double think
crimestop, in short, is protective stupidity.
Stupidity is never enough. We are required to know that black is white (blackwhite) and forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by a system of thought called doublethink.
God bless Newspeak and this controlled insanity. We owe it all to those wonderful Thought Police. I am boring you. 🤧 sorry, but might I interject?
I will see you all in Room 101. This feels like cliffsnotes. That's what they'll say, but hey, I'll see them down by the bay. Well, I just may. Remember, only give the warning ☪ 🕌 That is all. Good things are coming.
Let me explain this story about how blacks came from glory …
I was Teddy Roosevelt once, 2Pac too. I've been poets, madman, endless creatures, so varied all. I've been Frank Sinatra, you'd guess by what my ear fancies. I've slunk it out and been taken for a fool. Brandished guns in far off suns sharing deserts with C.W. Sughrue.
I've sung ballads with Ernst Röhm, danced with Billy Joel @ Shea, and confused myself on a day with Cameron Frye.
I am only human. Cast away oldthink and meet me @ the joycamp and we'll misunderstand together.
Awaiting 2050 when Oldspeak will be all gone gone gone.
I went to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) to obtain a BFA. While there, I wrote HTML, painted, wrote poetry and verse, watched classic Hong Kong cinema, and rode the CTA at night and I recall kind token-takers willing to let a penniless white boy in from the cold. Winters can be worse there than some cities in Russia. Walls of ice hitting one's body. After my time in that most American of American cities I moved down to the American South, living in New Orleans and later Atlanta. I fixed computers and wrote code all along the way.
"The most effective debugging tool is still careful thought, coupled with judiciously placed print statements."
"The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination."
"People that quote other people are fools."
—Vanderbilt graduate I worked with in New Orleans who was very affable and clearly very wise.
"Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand."
