writing about memories
external memories held in objects
an old letter, a train ticket

together my words and the things
form an alternative reality
that you and I can visit

Selfishness and Politics

leave a comment »

There was once a great new idea propagated (centuries ago) which grew to be called “DIY” which stood for “Do It Yourself”.

This was a craze that overtook thousands of citizens where they were able to save money by not paying builders who, as part of their fee, usually reserved the right to tell filthy jokes and sexually harass all female passers by as they were working on the client’s property. But it went further than that in time when it was found that ordinary folk could learn about politics and economics through a popular system called Facefuck. Printed copies, containing user submitted messages, were distributed in the market squares morning and evening. This grew hugely popular when people started to realise they could have a convenient narcissistic relationship where no other real human company was needed. The DIY ethic was reaching its pinnacle. All you had to do was stay alone and contribute to Facefuck.

Letter to a friend about psychiatry

leave a comment »

Dear Friend,

Psychiatrists regard those of their patients who manage to reenter the economy at the lowest possible pay scale as successes.

They are one of a number of different groups to imply that this current state of capitalism is a state of natural reality, i.e. this is the only way it can be.

I have been long of the persuasion that is normality itself as a concept and a normative ideal that is broken, not our minds (as so-called “mad” people) that are broken.

Simple Python Project: Markov Text

with 2 comments

consider this sentence

“the cat sat on the mat”

we can see the following about it

the word “the” is followed by “cat” and “mat”
the word “cat” is followed by “sat”
the word “sat” is followed by “on”
the word “on” is followed by “the”

so from this sentence we can construct a dictionary like this

catsat = {"the":["cat","mat"],
          "cat":["sat",],
          "sat":["on",],
          "on":["the",],
          "mat":[]}
