Mississippi seems utterly flat in comparison:

I've seen some of the Plains states. Perhaps MS isn't as flat by comparison. But it certainly seems that way, relative to where I live now. And I don't even live in "the mountains". Just on the very edge of them. It's all foothills around here, which doesn't even count.

Still, it's weird to go from foothills in every direction on the horizon and roadways carved through rocky hillsides to... basically nothing. A few knolls, and that's about it. When I first came here, I was stunned by the difference. Now I hardly notice it unless I go West to Mississippi or very far South of Huntsville. The foothills pretty much disappear by the time you get to Decatur, AL.

PS: I almost forgot to mention that I wanted to apologize for never getting back to you regarding those Pure Data programs you sent me. I was having trouble even getting them to run, and I quickly realized I didn't have a firm enough grasp on the programming to be even remotely productive with it. I was frankly too embarrassed to tell you.
It's cool, PD is really intimidating for the first long while. To be honest, these days I make my generative music with Live 9. You don't get the same level of control, but for what I want to do, it's pretty great.

-Golden Gate Bridge suicides

-What I imagine to be the incredibly nauseous, dreadful adrenaline rush experienced by most or all of those instantly regretful jumpers seconds before wasting themselves

-Thinking about what a downer visiting the spiritually-tainted GGB (or Sodom Francisco in general) would likely be for me. I imagine there's enough slack-jawed tourists waddling around there 24/7 as it is. Reason enough for me to avoid it. I'm sure it's breathtaking, though

-Working in my backyard. I hope, eventually, to be able to start a small vegetable garden. Maybe grow some berries or something. Possibly some non-intrusive, exotic decorative and deliriant solanaceae species, because I think they're nifty.

-Weight loss

I was trying to say at least one nice thing, but, yes, I've heard about the smell. I will look into alpine strawberries. Don't think I've ever had them, only the flavorless wild ones that grow low to the ground.

Anyway, current obsession:
ELSAGATE.
Holy fucking god. I only learned of this madness about an hour ago. Just browsing through some of those videos on youtube is an unnerving mindfuck, even without recognizing all the glaring or otherwise implied "grooming" tactics. The sheer volume of content, the absurdity of it, the ridiculously high production values and constant innocent/fun/"zany" and malevolent/vaguely sensual/scatological/violent intersections/overlaps. It's all deeply, distressingly over-stimulating in its own right. it's like the whole idea is to just completely overwhelm viewers (children) and render them borderline catatonic.

I feel queasy watching these videos, but I can't stop viewing them, reading discussions about them and searching for signs of intelligent/human life in the scads of unparsable gibberish video comments, just to feel like I'm not the only human being looking at the videos when I see a reassuring comment along the lines of "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!"

Damn...

Have you watched the doc "Tickled", Jon? I think you would be interested in it, it's pretty weird and got the same feeling of dimension within dimension buried under another dimension of fuckeryfuckedifuck whatever.

I have not, though I did grab it off Karjagoogoo after seeing it mentioned in a discussion regarding those YouTube videos. I look forward to watching it... eventually.

Current obsession: Walrus Audio Phoenix, among other gadgets:

This is the perfect option for me to free up some outlets, and to serve as a supplemental power source to my 1Spot so that I can power a zillion devices at once (there's also a 120V AC out on the back). All that with the probable benefit of isolated DC outputs for my excessively noisy/bleed-prone devices. Also, it looks really cool! Pricey, though.

I know I sound like a sales rep, but I've been fawning over this thing for days.

The Monkees.

I liked the show when I was a kid, and still like to catch it on TV once in while today. I've always liked their TV personas and the classic, prefab series-era songs, but I never explored them much outside of that until recently, after watching several episodes in a row and becoming creepily enamored with Michael Nesmith's character. It just snowballed from there.

I started reading about them online and ended up watching Head and various interviews. Head is iffy in places, and awfully heavy-handed about trying to break the group's soft, commercial image, but it's also got some very fun and funny moments. Not to mention, it features what is perhaps the best song The Monkees ever recorded:

Tears, no joke.

I'm currently delving into their post-series albums. Eventually, I would like to listen to some of Michael Nesmith's solo material.
