tuesday morning nirvana

It is tuesday morning 515am and I have already smokes 2 bowls of Jeri's blend in old reliable and have drank 2 cups of olJoe.  I awoke this morning after the hot day yesterday and watched the current episode of Orphan Black. Last night I further endowed myself into the pleasures of Spotify .

Listening to an array of musical delights from Keef, Kiss, the stones etc I was nicely removed from the reality of this fucked up society and transported into the audiophile foreplay of classic music. Just about anything you could want to listen to is available out there. I found some Keef that I had never heard and was thoroughly entranced by the quality of the sound for a streaming audio. Good stuff. This site is worthy of further discovery.

Also this past weekend I was able to download onto ibooks a copy of the new ru serious biography of Timothy Leary. Another good ready. So good in fact that I started the book at 430 am and had devoured the contents before 9am. It was a very enlightening  read filled with anecdotes, philosophy and even a few legitimate tin foil hat stories. you can download the book here for free.  The download worked direct from the ipad so no transporting needed. Check it out.

On the homefront, the second planting of mescaline lettuce is sprouting as are the peas and taters. More to come in the next update.

who needs an alarm clock?

I wake up every morning around 4am. Is this by design? NO. Is this by plan? NO this is a pre-determined time of the day set probably set in place my ancestors and passed down thru the genes.It gives me the benefits of having an hour or two of quiet time before the clan wakes up.

Do I need an alarm clock? Hell no. The bodies internal clock and the chirping of the early birds does the trick. At 4am the early birds start singing their tunes.  My throat says smoke and coffee are needed, my bladder needs emptying and the day should start. Its all deeply rooted in the genes.

Can we fight the genes? I doubt it. Over they years I have tried to adjust the natural clock with stimulants to keep me awake at night so that I may sleep longer. It does not work. I am usually asleep by 9 or 10 at the latest. Many times earlier. I am always awake by 4 am. It seems that nothing I do can change that, give or take an hour leeway. So I gave up and just embrace the reality the best I can.

 Unfortunately this quirck in the gene pool has caused many a strife with my partners in crime. For I seem to coddle to the other extreme when it comes to life partners. The majority of whom were/are on the late night mid morning rise schedule..

Phriday Phun

I have been working tediously in both labs this past week.  At the big lab I have been working on possible refinements to processes and improvements to infrastructure of the base setups. It is hard when one has to explain and keep reminding the PTB that the world is not connected to the blue cable and that must adapt.. Its almost like telling older people of my gen that there are no carburetors in cars anymore..  Will these older people ever learn are will they be constrained by there age and loss of inquisitiveness. I for one have not . Even at my age I am still learning.. We can learn alot from our younger people.If we only take the time and make the effort.

There is a great article in the NYTImes this morning regarding the 20 somethings of today who are thinking outside the box and rethinking post-modern ideology and reembracing the skills and behaviors of our forefathers. click here for the article.  My friend Lloyd brought it to our attention on his blog and I had to read.. Oh boy can I relate. These 20 somethings are our link to the future.Hippie to hipster and back.

Anyhow today I am attending a security seminar and a screening of Iron Man 3. A trip to the tobacco emporium afterward and possibly an imbibement before spending a few hours in my big lab before returning home for the weekend. I am thinking of further exploration of this  for my weekend video update.  We shall see.
