The Grapes of Confusion

| Jan. 08, 2015

If confusion is the door that wisdom comes through then what the hell is this? Just so there's no confusion, prepare to be confused.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed. Save for the transformative laws of thermodynamics and nuclear reactions. More power to you. The same power will eventually knock you back down to size. Nietzsche was just another monkey. Yet we evolved from apes. All men are created equal, except for the inferior, or unworthy. The chain is still only as strong as it's weakest link. Society is only as healthy as its sickest citizen and only as wealthy as its most deprived. Experience it all at the top of the food chain. But thrown to the lions or forced to walk the plank, and suddenly we're out of our element. Make no mistake about it. If you don't make mistakes, you don't make anything. Waste not, want not. You can never have enough. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine. Trust no one. Kill them with kindness. Eliminate them and another enemy simply takes their place. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Surrender. Fight for your right. Take your time. Hurry up and wait. Enjoy the moment. Can't wait till it's over. Love your neighbor. At the next opportunity throw them under the bus. Seek and ye shall find. Seek and destroy. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. What can't be cured must be endured. Just delay the inevitable, for you cannot prevent it. Engagement without risk, Risk without engaging. Technology has made us more connected, and still more disconnected than a cluster of social hermits. Daring, yet tentative. Revealing, but cloistered. An infestation of antisocial extroverts. We hear you loud and clear, but cannot see the writing on the wall. Freedom of choice. Enslaved by indecision. Youth must be served. Youth is wasted on the young. These are your golden years. You're past your prime. Money makes the world go round. All you need is love. Peace and good will to mankind. If you want peace, you must prepare for war. Don't sweat the small stuff. Everything depends upon the weather. In sickness and in health. Irreconcilable differences. A paradoxical dichotomy upon a paradoxical dichotomy of apathy, indifference and denial wrapped neatly inside a multitude of cliches. A strange paradigm. A familiar place. A model of beauty. An ediface in ruins. An Oedipal journey. An Electra complex. The binary qualities of black and white, good and evil, this and that. You versus me. Us versus them. Everyone is against you. The duality of the human race as it muddles over its own trajectory. We've forgotten where we came from and fail to recognize where we'll end. Even the end is such that none of it really matters, nor does the beginning. Only the time in between—the here and now—our perception of it, is what does. But in the meantime don't forget to plan for the future, and be sure to pine away over the past. Have the time of your life, just in the nick of time to realize your time is up.

Exactly. And this is why we can't have nice things.

Did Eddie Murphy really say all that? It must have been quite a monologue, especially if he was rapping like a jive-ass rapper. Nietzsche was a mad baboon who got jilted by a gibbon. It serves him right for trying to get fresh with superior primate.

No, Eddie Murphy didn't say any of that, Mr. Bananas. Mr. Murphy however did tell this joke on his stand-up film 'RAW':

Once there was a lion and a monkey.

The monkey said, "I can make the weather change."

And the lion said, "No, you can't."

So the monkey started climbing up the tree. And then he started peeing on the lion's head.

"Now it's raining!"

Then he started farting.

"Now there's thunder!"

Then he started doo-dooing.

"Now it's snowing!"

So the lion said, "Oh, yeah? Well, I can make the stars come out."

And then he kicked him in the ding-ding.

Thank you.

Those were bordering on wise words. In the alternate unreality reality, I do so hope that my alleged computer actually manages to load up enough to comment.

God made man but he used the monkey to do it and then some...
