Death By Texting…

Reading the above article will make you want to change your way of life. We are once again being altered  by our devices. This time not for the better. The article goes through a list of things that texting can and will effect. Personally texting was a major component in ending my relationship of 14 years. The other day when I wrote about Porpentine, I realized that it was not only the texting and bizarre behavior, it was a much more deep rooted existence she led way before we met. But as we move through life we learn and take that new found information and turn it into art. In my case it’s The Z Factor and Greetings From Karpland. But perhaps it may be a bit too late to change our way of communicating. Texting is so immediate and has it’s own language. Yes it’s dangerous (didn’t know how much) and is immediate and uncomplicated. So much so that I believe we are loosing our ability to achieve intimacy. That’s my opinion. Take it for what it’s worth.

And now for another bit of sour reality:

Again this should be made into a book or film. The housing market in NY is terrible. I think Ivan is on the right track in creating a or several Petropolis’ in order to create affordable housing and accommodate and accommodate people. Hopefully the Condo Cancer Wealthy won’t bulldoze their way into the idea, if they haven’t already. I hear rumors of wanting to create landfills in the rivers. Personally I like the idea of something massive and floating as opposed to something that will eventually give way and sink.  As I have mentioned in previous blogs, my experience as a young person living in NYC was at times trying, but at least I was able to find an affordable place to live. And as we know everything is leaning towards homogeny (thanks to Bloomberg and Giuliani and let’s not forget Ed Koch.) It all began with the single thoug

ht of improving neighborhoods and turning the city into an amusement park for the haves, much like Karpland. But that story is still unfolding.ms bunny

And who says we can’t live in the past?:
