I was going to write about the waste in the USA and the reality most Americans either know or understand about the "lifestyle" we enjoy. Then I thought the unusual activity in Asia where the idea of freedom and democracy is in direct opposition to some political views. The irony is that each aspect is using propaganda to program its people about what is right or wrong. I still want to write about the infamous "drinking straw" silliness in the USA and the "Nespresso pen" lunacy of marketing in Switzerland. am I the only one that backs away from the hype and marketing and asks, "why not solve the problem?"
It leads me to more of the research and work I have been doing the past few months on the woo woo spaces. I can't get into the details of what it really is, but it is quite a bit further evolved than when we started them a year or so ago. What amazes me is that the market actually needs them in an age where goofy insanity is becoming the norm with people. My question is, will people use them, even though they need them? or will it be like talking to a junkie or addicted person and saying, "you know, the current path you are on isn't very healthy?"
That is my question for the day. While I love technology. I am flashing back to where we all were with the internet in the early 90s and thinking, "wow, today it doesn't look a whole lot different with the power and control than it did before the internet. It is just that a few companies really hold immense power of data, and they aren't nation-states.
Today, I will see if the man from manana shows his face? I gave him that moniker as I am really not used to the norm of how society works and how much bs is in the system with lots of words and small amounts of actual work or action. Perhaps I am just fortunate, and/or dumb enough to have found my passion and don't really care if it brings zillions of dollars, titled executive perks, and all the trappings of the world's success. I should say thank you to the monks and god for all that. God only knows where I would be if I kept on the old path.
So I will go help finish something for a friend. Go into another guys problem with some solutions and ship some camera lenses to a friend, as I am honored, he and his wife to want me to take their wedding images. It is very odd, in that I see what people spend on a trend with wedding photog and how actual photojournalists are doing cookie-cutter photography and making more money than when they did news. it is a sad state of media in America.
Me? I am not comfortable doing the wedding, as I only did one and had to laugh that they were some of my favorite images in my life. So I will go and wing it soon, and pray I get a few photos I really love of the couple. But I am shipping out my gear, and some clothes as flying in the USA is simply insane. Pick and pay for a bag, seat, flight, time,….it really has gotten nuts in the states. I pray Europe and Asia don't' follow suit anytime soon.
So yeah, I will be working away on building something and thinking of the woo project today. It is almost like NASA meeting common sense for the sake of humans that are going off the rails on a crazy train.
Did you hear Ozzy really is a genetic mutation for his ability to ingest what he did in his life? I only met him once…ok, he was passed out at a bar, but did mumble something about a new song while his bodyguard had the most interesting look on his face as if to say, "thank god this guy pays me money to do this."
woo woo! Full steam ahead!
