A letter from Ambrose Bierce to his niece Lora:


Dear Lora,

I go away tomorrow for a long time, so this is only to say good-bye. I think there is nothing else worth saying; therefore you will naturally expect a long letter. What an intolerable world this would be if we said nothing but what is worth saying! And did nothing foolish—like going into Mexico and South America.

I'm hoping that you will go to the mine soon. You must hunger and thirst for the mountains—Carlt likewise. So do I. Civilization be dinged!—it is the mountains and the desert for me.

Good-bye—if you hear of my being stood up against a Mexican stone wall and shot to rags please know that I think that a pretty good way to depart this life. It beats old age, disease, or falling down the cellar stairs. To be a Gringo in Mexico—ah, that is euthanasia!

With love to Carlt, affectionately yours,

Ambrose.
[Oct 1, 1913]

Point the 1st:

A few years ago, a Black Witch moth (Ascalapha Odorata) flew off a wall and struck me in the chest and flew away. I felt "marked." A stunning omen, given I authored an essay on the little "money bats" back in the day. I can count on my one-toed left foot how many moths have collided with my mossy heart chakra.


Point the 2nd:

Elsewhere on this site, in a different lifetime, I wrote about hatching Sphinx moths for the purpose of invading local gardeners' tomato plants with glorious Sphinx moth eggs/tomato worms.

Some call it Chaotic Evil. I call it nature.

Often, science supply houses instruct young entomologists to destroy the moth after hatching, as it is considered a "pest."

Repugnant.

Fuck that weak shit. I mean REALLY. Fuck that.

It just encourages me to hatch a legion.

Keep on keeping it weird!

Good to see you here again. Post often!

Thanks, man.  Always fun to glide through in near Silent Running mode and see what's up.

There’s one for sale at a thrift store near me.

A true "wild" sighting.  It has been several years since I saw one in a resale shop.

And what color was that bad boy, Juan?

I recently had a near miss.  A local friend notified me of one at an estate sale.  Instead of buying it for me instantly, she waited and told me several hours later. Needless to say, it was sold before I could get to it.

It was BLACK.

I already had a 3D chrome skull (w/ separate crossbones) sticker/badge picked out to put on it.

I was going to christen that son of a bitch "Jolly Roger."

The manual I have now is ridiculously old.  I use it for short notes, not writing.  A portable Underwood, found in a neighbor's* trash, in a wooden case.  I've used it for some secret missives to MV, who is a known "digester" of obscure and real font striking.

*Said neighbor was suspected by another neighbor of being a government spy, but I found no secret compartments on the Underwood.

TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 Episode 3

Selectric II

Color: Green

location: in police station

bonus: Finally. An extreme close-up of the typeball in action.  You would think most directors would capture this crucial ~element~ as standard protocol.

Catching an old Dick Van Dyke episode, I suddenly realized I much prefer Buddy Sorrell's wife over Rob Petrie's.

Her character's nickname was "Pickles."  Too much to process as a young caterpillar so long ago.

But now that I have become a full blown Black Witch moth, I easily process the value of Pickles over Laura and her stuck toe in the bathtub faucet.

We never stop growing.

Until we croak.

When you have turkeys with smoking habits, maybe you're just doing them a favor. 

The voices of the avian skeletons in the crawlspace haunt me.

Good thing that Noory is not around, so we are allowed to have coincidences. I just looked that up for the first time in a year or so yesterday...

I know that this is not the thread for it, but +1 anyways.  ;)

Noory's ears are aflame. Heh.

Something else arcing between my hemispheres today. Makes me want to break out the old snare drum.
