Now This Really IS Fiction…Sunday, 14/05/2017
This really IS fiction – just like observation and then thought-experiment… and I need to look up some of that observational stuff to find out if it’s botanically accurate…
There’s a sign on the side of the pub, adjacent to my block, that asks people to leave quietly out of consideration for their neighbours. Unfortunately it’s positioned to be directed at me, the resident – insisting I show some respect to the warbling karaoke singers, fist-fighting gristleheads and loud swaying drunkmen.
If one heads in the other direction though, away from the pub and the main road beyond, the city starts to pixelate into patches of nature. Money falls away by degree and the commerce that persists grows gradually weaker… Because now we see… not the genuine blooms of industry – no… these are more like… just weeds… There on the left for example, a cafe that’s not real –

PBN Perspective, Episode 3. Can hardly believe the fur thing – very frightening to think that’s the kind of world we live in…

Who knows what I would have learned if I hadn’t fallen asleep halfway through my session… Although it wasn’t quite sleep…

Andy Warhol’s prediction now seems accurate in it’s projection that every one of us would seek fame (of course we would, the fame of others took the attention of our parents and friends away from us in childhood) – but it doesn’t extend to the fact that the elevation of mass produced attention over intimacy has led to quite another phenomenon altogether – our attempts in completely the WRONG direction for what was once commonplace – 15 minutes of love. 15 minutes of being known and being truly accepted. Will everybody get that? Almost certainly not – in part because they won’t have the luxury of knowing themselves.
Just as fame was the new love, love will become the new fame…

PBN Perspective Volume 2 – support Plant Based News if you’re so inclined, they’re such genuine, talented people! A rare life raft of disciplined, well organised effort amidst all the anarchy that non conformist vegans tend to attract… You know what I mean – when you meet people sometimes and think – they’re working with such intent, that whatever they need, we must definitely give it to them!
