elektro guzzi is the most unique guitar, bass, and drum oriented band since primus.

finally got on a new BART train today
2018-11-01 18:29:01 ET

the new BART trains are 100% star trek and it's amazing. everything from overall design, to the live system map display screens, to the enterprise-esque computerized female voice announcing stops. sadly, i was only going one stop on this trip, but whenever i land on another one i'll try to ride it around for a while and take more/better pictures. the bay area is absolutely pwning the rest of the country right now in terms of infrastructure development.

hi kids

for the .5% of people here who are bay area locals or who can otherwise get to san francisco tomorrow, i'll be DJing an invite-only party in the early evening, and you can text me at 415-716-7136 if you want to come.

we are now seeing a much more overtly visible beginning of the end for social media as its usage across all platforms begins to decrease and ultimately stop altogether amongst generation z.

america: a post-mccain essay
2018-08-26 01:57:19 ET

person a: a celebrity/politician i don’t know, have never met, and who doesn’t give a fuck about me in any tangible way has died.

person b (friend of person a): hey, that celebrity/politician did some really bad things to people and was extremely selfish. we shouldn’t ignore that, and we should learn from it.

person a: i hear what you’re saying and, while i could continue having a meaningful, real, actual human connection with you and others in my life who share your opinion, i have decided the feelings i have about famous people who don’t know me, alive or dead, matter more to me than people who actually care to be in my life like you do, and i am now going to get angry at you about it and not talk to you anymore, because this is considered functional behavior in our society, and how dare you insult some dead fuck i’ve never met.

this is true

i've been invited as a guest on TED talkin' fancyman leonard kim's radio show grow your influence tree on the 23rd of this month, for anyone interested in listening in.

TBH i'm not even sure what i'll be discussing yet. either personal ramblings or the world after social media. maybe a bit of both or something else entirely. either way, things are brewing.

listen in if you'd like. continued thanks to everyone throughout my life who's kept believing in me. and hell, thanks to everyone who's laughed at me over the past decade for everything i'm now being proven right about as well. i hope we all have grown up a bit. i hope we all gain more foresight.

additionally, i'm starting a slack group - apparently the first one in this vein if the URL i got for it is any indication - dedicated to creative business and politics in a post social media world. if you want an invite, PM me. or, you know, wait another ten years.

san francisco summers are the best summers and if you disagree you're just objectively wrong 🤷‍♂️

via linkedin, me, and the associated press:
2018-07-26 20:19:58 ET

"Facebook stock collapse wipes out $119 billion in market value, one of the worst single-day losses in history."

for me personally, this is more frustration than it is gloating as i have a long career track record of being right about things 10 years ahead of time that no one wants to listen to until they happen. that said, for this one, and to everyone who i've been telling facebook was propped up on smoke and mirrors to since the late 2000's who's refused to believe me:

i told you so.

this is just the beginning of a long string of things that i can guarantee won't end well for the company, even if it takes another ten years for them to finally tank completely. my guess is that it won't even take that long, though. next time you want to hire someone to help your company or brand, hire someone like me who's in multiple spheres and thinks like an outsider looking at timelessness beyond the damn 5 year window all these other techbro idiots keep worshiping. otherwise your whole fucking industry will collapse when the next window rolls around. don't say i didn't warn you.

with respect, as an FYI

if you're incapable of sitting through the entirety of this video and listening carefully to every point being made, you are incapable of having an educated opinion about anything presently going on in american politics on the national level.

2018-07-23 21:47:38 ET

just gonna post a handy reminder that:
a. the FBI/CIA have lied about virtually everything your entire life.
b. mueller gave us all the made up reasons we needed to invade iraq.
c. known manipulators are not your friends & shouldn't be trusted, especially when they're "on your side".

apparently i have a showtime subscription again

because sacha baron cohen's new show is fucking amazing and literally everyone should be watching it.

in-n-out burger here starts at $17 an hour now and prices still haven't gone up.

right wing libertarianism is still the dumbest of all religions.

twitter achievement unlocked?

points from today:
2018-07-10 16:51:21 ET

a. when out walking to the bus, en route to meditate by the ocean and eat some lunch, i noticed a stoplight at an intersection near my place had been bent / broken in part causing the green signal to no longer be viewable to traffic, confusing some folks at the intersection.

b. as i generally do whenever i spot a random infrastructure issue or an atypical gap in transit around SF, i hit up one of the city's agencies on twitter and tweeted the problem at them. as usual, they responded on twitter immediately and said they were filing my complaint, passing it along, gave me my report's confirmation number, and they'd have it resolved soon.

c. still being used to the rest of the country where i lived prior to here where shit like this always takes weeks if not months to actually fix - but at the same time continually getting used to the much more democratically socialist way san francisco is run that seems to always cause things like this to resolve a lot faster than anywhere else i've lived when they do pop up - i think to myself "well cool. hopefully they fix it sometime today i guess."

d. about an hour later after i've been to the ocean, had lunch, and am walking back home from the bus stop again, i walk past the light - and it's now been completely fixed sometime within the hour of when i first reported it - i checked twitter and i was also the first person to report it.

e. libertarians peddling privatization over socialization are either obscenely misinformed or fucking grifter asshats, and the infrastructure problems literally everywhere else in the country vs what happens here are 100% a testament to this.

i'm still laughing about the light. i've seen the city respond more or less just as quickly to much bigger issues when they pop up but, even for something this simple, it's still something i'm getting used to after living literally anywhere else in the US. SF is just like, "yeah, sure, let's fix it then."

yep. why not. 🤷‍♂️

so i made this tweet today...

great article echoing shit i've been saying about social media's ultimate demise since the 00's
2018-06-30 12:16:59 ET

jaron lanier’s argument for getting off facebook

the only point he makes incorrectly is his mention of amazon which, in reality, is a company that EASILY spies on / owns their user base in many areas as much as google does. otherwise he's 100% spot on. social media as we know it is going away eventually. we should be figuring out what's next, making it better, and not making it capitalist.

serious rape allegation against maynard james keenan of tool here from a woman who says she was just 17 at the time--an extremely upsetting story

it's almost like, much like the rest of these #metoo outings, maynard is now also turning out to be the exact person he’s always behaved like, acted as, and said he was. will we stop endlessly elevating and worshiping egotistical assholes as celebrities in america yet while making excuses for their “art”? no? oh, well ok then. x_x
