Today, I made video and realized I was taping over music. I did not realize that after the music there was video footage that I would like to keep. This is a danger with video. So many time the story gets taped over. Today it was cool though, I stopped recording over the music before I destroyed the video. 60minute tapes are too long. I'd love having just 10 minute, 20 minute tapes. Probably tape is over. Some kind of other media will replace it, That is easier to tape over. I hate delete. Film only, is my rule with cameras. "Video is a dirty Japanese trick" Jean Luc Godard. But he uses it. The cool thing about the 365 minutes group is that there is always a deadline. After going through 365 minutes, We get to pick and choose the film schools we want to teach at. This group is ultra avant garde. Nevermind the product here's 365 minutes. This is experimental writing as well.

No,... teachers teach video/film makers make movies. We never choose to teach at any of those schools. It's never a choice like that. I already compromise too much as is, than to get involved with schools. I grew up in a church, it's the same thing. The only reason I am interested in film school now it to have access to equipment. The only reason I went to college was to use the photographic darkroom. But I liked their video suite too.

I despise church and their teaching. Evil powers. And of course, every intelligent person has plenty of agendas considering schooling, jobs, etc...

You would have hated the funeral I went to today. The church plumber died. One of his family members took the opportunity to use the occasion as an opportunity to convert other family members to Christianity.
I'm glad I quit smoking. The gravelly sound of smokers cough once such an intimate experience, echoed around me. In fact I coughed once in sympathy, but just didn't have the familiar growl.
My uncle pointed to the clock at his mothers funeral twenty some years ago and said, "that clock has the slowest ticking hands in the world".
My ex apparently quit smoking. She says it sucks not smoking. I tend to agree. I'd rather smoke now. But I won't. It feeds into all those theories about addiction that I reject.
The "Evil" powers, I.E. prayer is clinically proven to work to help heal the sick. I remember telling a guru about how mad it made me that my parents prayed for me constantly, as the still do. He is the one who told me prayer is clinically,... . And he's a heavy duty Buddhist, Yoga, spiritual leader, psychic etc,... So I suppose I'd be better off not to worry about it. Initially My girlfriend was concerned about my anger. I went with her to the ashram and asked the Guru twelve years ago. He said I'd be fine if I can find another job. "Those people will never understand me" he said.
I help my Mom out. She's into Jesus and never tires of trying to convert me and the Uncle who mentioned the clock. When she went to school and got her masters in drama, she became really cool, less dogmatic because she had a great professor there. He is a secular humanist. This illuminated my moms world from black and white to a more psychedelicized rainbow of colors, or maybe that was me? She's also been involved with the Orchestra since 1964.
My story is rather banal. I enjoy playing scrabble with my mom. I'm given up the notion of getting married, or even having a girlfriend, it's not likely that I will have much of a career in the arts, because that's obviously turned into the sex trade. I'm way too old to play music. Or let's say my generation didn't exist. Travel is out of the question. I am not leaving Denver unless they make me go. Not even for a visit. You see, I'm a bit of a flake.

Religion is a drug, addiction. The worst one. Mind poison. I'm not generalizing it but...
I live across monastery and see a huge hypocrisy every single day. Nuns working heavy physical jobs while priest is smoking on the window and looking at me while I'm smoking on my building ( I never smoke inside, smoking is wrong, that's the reason ). They are living in one massive community marriage. Plus I witnessed in war how religion power did the biggest crime during the same.
I had luck with my parents. They left the choice to my free will. I could never be a part of the masses. Ipernity is a " masses " too I know. But, something has to keep me on the Earth because I don't belong here and never will.
And of course there are people who just know how to believe. There is just one faith and zillions religions. It's a huge difference between those two things.

There you go! I contend that drug addiction is bullshit. There have been studies in British prisons with inmates "Addicted" to various drugs. All kinds of methods for weaning off drugs and substitute drugs etc,... always lead to recidivism. 12 step programs are another example. When someone decides that they don't want to shoot up heroin, drink, smoke crack etc,... They just stop with little with drawls and don't start up again. I believe the big tobacco companies and the rehabs etc,... are in cahoots. Selling like a national religion substance abuse programs. I say the same thing about religion now too. There's a mass appeal for atheism starting now. Books that say," Why god Doesn't work". Flooding the market. It's not that big of a stretch to say it's a kind of methadone for the fallen believer.
In any case, it's stimulating to ponder the thoughts and ideas passed down over the years whether they be your standard western texts, eastern, northern or from some celestial deities from outer or inner space.
How can you have faith in much more that the concept of grace.
Oh by the way, if smoking is wrong, Then all those religions that use tobacco as a sacrament are deluding themselves. It might be OK if done in the right spirit. It's a very communal habit, no worse than people who eat too much. If it is a sin, Then it is just as bad as murder etc,... Someone told me that there is no hierarchy of sin. Just because someone says no, doesn't mean God frowns. A lot is subject to interpretation, And since there are only Zillions of different ideas on the subject, at least there's one thing we can agree on,... That is, we, you and me, don't belong on this planet. We're just here to titillate the masses for a spell, until the Mother Ship comes to pick us up.

I want to be a complete person. Working on it.
There is no sin. In fact there is. Definition of the sin is : the sin is the deed that hurts you and wide circle of people around you. That's the difference between sin and mistake. Mistake hurts only you. On my language those are two similar words
Grijeh - sin
Greška -mistake.


Everything that came into existence must disappear.

And plus it gets to my nerves when church talks about punishments. What a sin that is huh?
But then again life wouldn't be fun without paradoxes :)
