chocolate to pilot
today i rewrote the internet script again. i found a more streamlined version whose live-action demands are a bit more manageable.
lately there have been a lot more people in the streets than usual. it may have something to do with christmas and shopping and so on.
sunday i met jud at mulligan's and gave him the chocolates i found on saturday in haarlemmerstraat. and he took me for a tournedos at nw and we talked a lot. then we went back to mul where the session was on and we sat in the back talking some more, joined by gerrit k.
riding home on the 14 i phoned ddk in buffalo to see if he was okay. i told him i was still thinking about his web site and the techniques DVD about his amazing surfaces (ddk is a master interior painter). that made him chuckle, i'm not sure why he thought that was funny. anyway they are okay.
also called pani, she made it safely to warsaw.
messing around with "facebook" again today i realized it's much more insidious even than i first realized. first there's the instant heroin addiction, but then as you look at the toplogy of it you see they have endless caverns of doodads and "fun" things to keep you busy even longer. and then there's like, the insecurity and guilt thing. before caving, of course i blew off several facebook invites from people i knew -- no thanks i don't want social networking, we're friends anyway, right? and now i'm "adding" some of them and hoping they will reply, not hold my late-adopterness against me. this is fucking sick, man. jk is already calling us "facebook victims" even though he's on there too.
i think maybe what's supposed to happen is that we're all supposed to get accounts with facebook, myspace, youtube and linkedin -- and then we're all supposed to be put in jail for the rest of our lives. because prison is the only place where you'd ever have that much free time.
