I lied... Here is a quote

Dootzkie Wednesday, June 29, 2011
Here is a quote from a manga. I firmly believe that you can learn over any medium, be it manga, movie, book, song. Hope you feel the same.

All creatures want to believe in something bigger than themselves. They cannot live without blind obedience. And to scape the pressure of that trust, those in whom faith is placed in turn look for someone higher than themselves. And then those people in turn look for someone even stronger. That is how all Kings are born. That is how all Gods are born.

On top of that, notice the "It's like we are all trapped by it" line in the clip. This is what Gods are for me. ;)

The return of the prodigal son

Dootzkie

At least I am not half barefoot.

There has been a lot of events in the last two weeks of my life. Some joyful, some gloomy, some that happened to others, some that happened to me.

But after all that I have returned. And I won't stay all too long here for I plan to move this fine establishment to a new and much better organized site with it's own .com URL.
Best news so far where that all the time I neglected this site and it's readers payed of. I passed two exams I wanted so I can pause from the university work for a while. The bad news is that I will have a lot of free time in July and some in August. Well, actually, the bad news is the reason, and the free time is just an effect that can still change.

For the blog, nonsense songs will return, so will the texts and the music. Pictures will be removed, as a theme, but will as such follow some posts. The same will be done with quotes. And since today was a day for quotes, it means I don't have to write anything.

Also, a final note. From 1st of July till the 3rd or 4th I will be in the capitol city of Hungary on a debating competition at CEU or how's it called. So... As you might have figured, I won't be around during that time as well.

As for the upcoming topics they will be about education system. For this I blame the fact that I had to study like crazy to pass constitutional law, that I have started reading an interesting book that delves deep into the human mind and that I have been watching [again] a lot of Sir Ken Robinsons talks.

Hope you dear lemon drops are still around and reading ;)

Upcoming greatness

Dootzkie Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Twisted fate strikes again and I rise from the ashes with more great ideas!

First off, my real life will get a lot more complicated as of soon since I might get an almost dreamjob for a youngling like my self without the university degree. Ofcourse, I will continue going to my university. On to of that I might be taking a course on NLP, which is something I am very interested in and since it's a proper course it will eat a lot of time, but my posts might take a turn towards that [and nightlife and music festivals due to the possible new job].
On top of that I will be going back to the gym...

Damn... With all that writen down I my self don't know where I'll find the time to do it all and have any spare time for anything else.

Now, as for my net activities, I was having some difficultios with some malicious twats, but that is being taken care of. And, the best thing about it all is that in a few days [if my mate finds the time to finish some stuff] I will be launching a new site with .com. This pleases me greatly because I will include 4 themes in that which will be Nonsense - Insults - Pick ups - Random

For nonsense, well, my readers do know what I mean by that. I plan to keep on collecting those lovely limerics and even enable a way for people to send me their own.
For insults... I find the lack of sophistication in a day to day insults and comebacks disturbing. Yo mama and NO U will be ignored while some other ones will be pushed into the front row [Instead, You sooo old one could say "If I was to tell you to act your own age, you'd die"]
For pickups - I will include some funny and some neat and nifty tricks and lines that are either there for amusement or can be really used for approach. From "Do you know what's the average weight of a polar bear. No...? Neither do I but it breaks the ice" [And I had some positive replies to that!] to some well thought off backhanded compliments [or negs if you know what I mean *wink*].
Random will be... Random... Mostly texts or stimulative videos. I will pull a few texts from here to get it started and will write one or two a week.

Now, I am off... Life calls!

Twisted Fate

Dootzkie Sunday, June 19, 2011
Just as things start to normalize in one section of ones life, some other fall apart out of the blue... Just as I returned to writing, real life had some different ideas and so I will need to make one pause, I presume one week long.

Be well

After some fixing

Dootzkie Saturday, June 18, 2011
I got back to the .co.cc domain.

Some net providers might block it, but I like the look of it.

On a side note, I have started making two sites [one will be done real soon] so expect me to move to .com soon enough.

Be well

Honesty of true authoritarianism.

Dootzkie
As a law student I do come across a lot of theories connected to the institutions of the state, politics, law and the state it self. There you got whole chapters dedicated to democracy, socialism, constitutional monarchy, and many other systems I will not bother you with. At the end of each section in the book, you get a few words about
authoritarianism which is always presented as a bad thing that never worked and never gave anything good to the civilization.
From there, everything ends on the idea that monarchy is outdated, socialism failed and that democracy is the best way for the future while authoritarianism is the worse.

I somehow disagree with this on the basis of two issues. The first is that democracy doesn't always come in a package with freedoms we crave while the authoritarianism doesn't exclude them. If you take a look on what is happening in Spain and Turkey and the freedom of info flowing over the net or my own country, Serbia, and the neighboring Hungary and the freedom of media, you will see that democratic states can be... No use the "1984" way of speaking, not democratic.

And then, we have the second issue and that is the honesty of regime. I firmly believe that in authoritarian regimes you get one of two cases of public opinion. Either 80 percent and over are happy and satisfied [this is what one could call a good authoritarian regime] or it's the other way around where over then 80 percent are not satisfied [one could say that they are VERY pissed off].
The first case is blissful and joyful and we should leave it as that. The second example is dreadful, but with a hidden benefit. With so many unsatisfied people, the regime will fall because of its acts. The critical mass will form and the true discontent will show for it is not possible for a government to have under control all of it's people.

Alas, today we live in a "democratic" world where you can vote and decide who will rule over you. Tony Benn, a British politician and a member of British Labour Party once said that "If the elections could change anything, those in power would abolish them a long time ago." You get an illusion that you matter, that your vote matters and yet nothing changes. Either you don't have anyone to vote for or you do vote just to be disappointed. It doesn't matter of its a system with two major parties [like USA or GB] or where you have more parties... You end up feeling cheated out of your vote and yet you do nothing for you get used to being content with the little you have and the less that you are given.

When you want to boil a frog you need to put her in a water of mild temperature for if you put her in the boiling water it will jump out. Then you start heating up and before the frog understands what's happening, it's done and ready for serving.

In authoritarianism you live either great for there is no political turmoil and everything is done for the state and it's people OR you live bad enough that you want to do something about it.

In democracy you live bad enough so that resources that should have been yours are taken away and that you feel like nothing and feel replaceable, but you don't live bad enough so you would do something.

This is why I say that authoritarian regimes are more honest. Because they either give you a sponge bath or try to boil you.
This is why the modern democratic world is more interested in preventing the creation of a critical mass of discontent then in how it's people live.

Share your opinions and experiences from the place you live, if you can.

Be well and think with your own head!

Quick Update

Dootzkie Friday, June 17, 2011
I have returned to the internet!
Exam - passed and now the university is on hold for two month of pure mentally hedonistic pleasure.

New posts will come flowing real soon.
And we start them off with a nonsense poem for today is Friday [I know what you are singing in ya head! STOP IT]

There was an Old Person of Tring,
Who embellished his nose with a ring;
He gazed at the moon
Every evening in June,
That ecstatic Old Person of Tring.

To live well is to live unseen

Dootzkie Monday, June 13, 2011
No picture for today, but something much more important and much more powerful.


For those that feel the will of Atlas in them, know, you will not live well...
Accept that fact and make it your armor.

If Loving You Is Wrong

Dootzkie Sunday, June 12, 2011

Just a little update

Dootzkie Saturday, June 11, 2011
Yes... Still studying... But university will grace me with almost two months of freedom afterwards so its ok.

Anyway... Yesterday Desktoper mentioned in his comment that he couldn't see my followers widget. If you could, look to the right, between the ads and blogroll and tell me if you see it.

Thanks ;)

Is it nonsense I hear?!

Dootzkie Friday, June 10, 2011
There was an Old Man of Jamaica,
Who suddenly married a Quaker;
But she cried out, "Alack!
I have married a black!"
Which distressed that Old Man of Jamaica

Now! My last exam will be done in a week so until then, still no big texts. Sorry, university putting me down, man :D
But Imma give you a retrospect on the comments from yesterday and will ask you all for a creative favor!


A lot of people have mentioned Zeitgeist in regards to the yesterdays video I posted and while they deal with the same subject the autism of the ZG movement is something that sets it apart. As someone who was part of translating of Zeitgeist 3 and many articles of Venus Project, while these two organizations worked together, I have came to a conclusion that a lot people in the Zeitgeist movement believe that you can just turn away from this system and that it won't hunt you down. You can see this best in the premier interview for ZG3 in New York when the team gathered and responded to a question regarding the how where and when will the fabled city that Venus Project propose be build. Utter autism led them to believe and answer that if they build it and segregate them self, everyone will accept that.
On the other hand, the video from yesterday was only dealing with the idea that someone is taking your money and not the pathology of it or if the money is even needed. They are both faulty, but if you are smart enough you can see that quality parts in both and extract them for your own belief system.

I will talk about my extractions once the university relinquishes its grasp on my time.

Until then, the creative favor. I am planning to make something nice out of these nonsense poems I find I books and online, so if you have one in your mind, please share it. I will be sure to put it with the rest, if it's in order and you will get nothing for it :P

Not so tinfoil hats animation

Dootzkie Thursday, June 9, 2011
I am fully aware that many of you have been listening about the IMF, World Bank, 9/11 and all that so you might be fed up with it.

But, if you just look around you must also be aware that there is something terribly wrong with the present state of things. The neo-colonial world we live in has a lot of issues, but at this moment, I bring you an animation that is dedicated mostly to the USA.


In my opinion, the change won't start there in the US. Why? That is another question for another post. First we will need a ray of light from somewhere which I like to call "a good example".

Enjoy the animation and share your feelings after you have watched it.

Picture, quote, university update

Dootzkie Wednesday, June 8, 2011
With the day of rest passed, it seems that I will need to return to the books since university exams are not over yet. Damn this university degree I strive to claim as my own. But, it can't be helped. For the stuff I want to do in life, status that comes with it is a most. As for knowledge, I'll just need to gather as much along the way.

This means, for you, dear reader that there is about a week and a bit more of torment here while you wait for the texts that are sprouting from my mind.

But, let's see what I can do for now. For now, I should post a picture or two since I didn't do so yesterday and these will be of my "hood". Both in the spring and in the winter.



Guess which has been taken at what point in the yearly cycles ;)
It's a quiet suburb on a hill that overlooks the city. Lots of green all around the orange bricks.

As for today, a quote is in order. Since as of late I have been watching Game of Thrones I have decided to, since I can't find time to read, at least to listen to the audiobook. The quote that goes around my head when I hear or watch about the Starks is one from Princess Mononoke:

When you cut off a wolfs head, it can still bite for one final time

A wise warning to never let your guard down, for the winter is coming.

University going smooth

Dootzkie Monday, June 6, 2011
Yes, yes! I have passed todays exam. Pulled three really nasty and very long questions, but in the end my endless trivia knowledge and the ability to refrase what I have just heard and pack in and present it as my new original thought allowed me to pass the exam.

So, it was a good day. Afterwards I chilled out with my best mate, bought a funny book and read it all in one go.

Tomorrow, university gets a hold on my life once more, until the last exam for a while that will happen in 16th of June.

Anyway, since I can't upload a picture now, the usual theme for Monday will come a bit later.

Hope you all fine people out there are fine and dandy.

Bagpipes

Dootzkie Sunday, June 5, 2011
No post yesterday, I know... Exam is tomorrow so I can't bother with this all that much.

Anyway, some Sunday music comes in a form of BAGPIPES! Many dislike their sound, but I really enjoy their sound. If I didn't so fond of my own country I'd go to Scotland for sure!

Enjoy and see ya tomorrow!

Special day

Dootzkie Friday, June 3, 2011
Special?

Yes!

Special!

First, cause it's a day for silly poems! Here is one

There was an Old Man of the West,
Who never could get any rest;
So they set him to spin
On his nose and his chin,
Which cured that Old Man of the West.

Now, if that wasn't enough, you'll be happy to know that today is my birthday! Twenty two years of age. Damn, I feel old!

I will be short now, since with the university and today's social obligations, I am REALLY short on time, so here is the cake that I will eat with my family. It's one of my favorite cakes, very simple and VERY chocolate!

The winter is coming

Dootzkie Thursday, June 2, 2011
I've started watching something I wanted to read a while ago. Again, more interesting philosophical books or school/university work didn't allow me to have enough time. Now that I have seen the start of the story, I am sure to read the books as soon as I get the chance. Hopefully right after university exams finish in two weeks and before the classes at university start which is a bit further.

Anyway, here is the intro to the Game of Thrones by HBO. Open it in Youtube, HD, full screen. It's the only way to watch this short art piece.


As for those that are wondering where I watched the show, try TVDuck.

Cheers

Freedom of security.

Dootzkie Wednesday, June 1, 2011
He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither

In regards to one of the previous posts that can be found here, I wanted to share this not so much of a quote, but a statement. A truism attributed to Benjamin Franklin. Because I believe that everyone feel the idea of this I won't talk about it in length. I will just point you into the direction of another older post of mine that deals with the most important freedom we have.

I will say this. If you are not free to make your own choices, then your security isn't in your hands but in the hands of those that make the choices for you.

As for me, university is eating up my time and will continue to do so for the next two weeks. I have no classes, but with exams knocking on the door, it's time to study hard. Damn you, university and degree!
At least it's all for a good purpose. I do learn a lot about the system we live in.

Be well.
Think!
