“One can live with the idea of distorted truth, but their metaphysical despair came from the idea that the image did not conceal anything at all.”

“The futility of everything that comes to us from the media is the inescapable consequence of the absolute inability of that particular stage to remain silent. 

Music, commercial breaks, news flashes, adverts, news broadcasts, movies, presenters—there is no alternative but to fill the screen; otherwise there would be an irremediable void....

Cheers to Your Independent Living PlaySpaces


Howdy doo, Freedom-Lovers? 

Happy Fourth of July to one and all!!!

With so much happening in the weird, wide world, I thought it might be nice to share some weird and wild stories of happenstance around the globe to remember who we are as free, independent lively folk.

For example, if you thought your town was weird, perhaps you have never heard of these wild lands.


 But, then again, them there hills and hamlets that be have nothing on uncanny valleys!!!

Shall we name them? Anything shorter than 63 words is probably permissible for most purposes.

With luck, the independence and unique qualities of ancestral and/or original nomenclature will be recognized.
