All I Know in Life I Know from Doing, All I Know about Writing I Know from Reading

To which the sarcast would retort both aren’t much and thus I haven’t done nor read much, but it takes a skilled and great sarcast to think of those and oversee the juxtaposition in the title.

I never learned how to write. Grammar was nothing I was ever interested in, French grammar and the oh so loathed “subjonctif” being the exception to the rule. Yet, I always wrote and the closer that Whoosh sound came, the better my output flew.

The First Time Shroomer and The Day I Was a Killer

But not like Papa who was a Rolling Stone. It was some day in September, but not the third.

It was a day I will always remember because that was the day…

Of course, by now, all that’s happening as you’re reading this is that tune playing in your head and naturally I oblige to please. Even if only to show those clothes they wore in those days.

And, because you can’t resist the trumpet in it.

Sympatheia, the Stoic Affinity to a Larger Interconnected Organism

When people gain their first insights in stoicism, often they tend to focus rather on how stoicism can help one to improve gaining a healthy perspective and finding things occurring in life less burdensome.

Which stoicism definitely helps with. Stoicism is a great aid in those matters because practicing it helps us remind that we do not have any influence over many things and thus they shouldn’t affect how we live life, how we experience things.

Hi, I’m Addicted… Addicted to Idle Clickers.

As someone who generally doesn’t mind being alone I spend most of days as a fkn philosopher reading. My reading habits are mostly tech/blockchain related and so-called “war stories” books.

The war stories or founder biographies but also the more romantized form of biographies, those of sports people and musicians. What’s not to love about reading an over the top easy Zlatan or Anthony Kiedis story. Generally, despite romanization, there’s a lot of inspiration to be found in those books and life wisdom. No matter how over the top often, there’s always gems to be found.

A Speedrun of Speedruns: Nailing “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time” Faster than this Post

It was late Spring of 1984, the Euro championships were in France and my parents had gone on an early vacation, to former Yougoslavia, with neighbors from the complex. While they were enjoying the great weather around Dubrobvnik, my grandparents had come over to watch me. Aged 9 I was rather self-sustaining already, at least if that meant eating crisps and drinking whichever cold thing I found in the fridge but my cooking skills were below par. Or inexistent.

I had no problem being alone with myself, after all there was cable TV, books, the football ground around the corner, the Olympic swimming pool, and of course that almighty Commodore 64.

Hello world!

I guess this means I have a blog again. Or something like that. This site now only needs an awesome car, a bar, and then the obvious connection to the Steem blockchain.

Until then, enjoy me over at Steemit or, if you prefer typography, then check me out over at busy.org. And if you only care about my hunts, then check me out on Steemhunt.

PS: Let the clean theme not fool you. It may or may not be more stylish than I am. Gorgeous typography, innit?

Batman Ninja, So Differently Badass It’s a Must See

Several moons ago, when I was still wet behind the ears new on Steem, I wrote about Batman Ninja and called it an absolute Whoa moment of last year’s NYCC.

Rereading that post now, I was gushing of happiness then and based on the Internet’s wisdom, and my usual gut feeling, I came to the conclusion that the movie would be ballistically batshit insanely awesome.

Sometimes you just feel a thing is going to be great and you know it’s going to be an amazing ride and there’s no way you’re going to be disappointed.

It’s Male Intuition when all you can think of is Philip J. Fry holding a whack of green notes.

Requiem to a Hangover

The morning after, that horrible feeling of being useless. Useless and void of most energy.

Empty but not totally.

You don’t think the whole world is against you. You don’t think life sucks that much that the MASH theme song is playing through your head. Quietly though, on a very low volume because your head is banging against its seams and everything feels like exploding.

No.

Veganism, Did It Start as a Diet or as a Psychology?

For months I have been spending time getting to grips with WFPB (Whole Food Plant-Based), learning the important ingredients and also gathering recipes and becoming more in creative in the kitchen.

No, not that creative in the kitchen, you little dirty mind! 😉

Much of this knowledge has been gathered browsing the Internet tubes and also the first and foremost location to end up in arguments with activists online, Facebook.

And so, unsurprisingly, it happened that last week I ended up debating the origins of veganism, debating whether it started as the now popular animal rights/love fanclub or as a diet.

I’m The Guy with the Ideas or How to Spot a Bullshitter

Talking with @personz yesterday our loathing of TED talks the sometimes ridiculousness of TED idea talks came up as we were actually talking about Steem-related issues. At the root of all was my idea to create a dual citizenship system within Steem and the technical feasibility of such.

Personz’s retort was as humorous as it was valid. I myself, by virtue of curating excellence in the startup scene I belong to, have become a connector and as such I get to meet, or read, those ideators quite often, too often in all honesty.

The Asshole Rule of Networking

I’m a connector.

The connector is a main role in any networking setup, in any circle. The connector is a middle person, somebody who curates connections making introductions and meetings easier to happen.

As a connector curation is my game. My skill is the ability to highlight excellence. My reputation is one of the main pillars of my raison d’être as a connector.

I find teams with a great idea and after some due diligence, I connect them to the people who may invest in them. Most often said due diligence is based on spending time with them and asking the right questions, setting little traps here and there to discover their thinking, their motivation, their drive, and even the risk they are willing to take.

The Ultimate Line of the Wannabe Internet “Troll”

It isn’t anything sophisticated, yet it is super effective. It isn’t an intelligent or creative insult, but it hardly ever misses to hit the spot and achieves the ultimate goal of each troll… a reaction.

The wannabe troll needs no wordcraft, no sartirical or sarcastic mindset. They need not be quick witted. They will never surprise anybody with their original insults, oh no.
