Reality Lies Far Beyond Space And Closer To Womankind

My mother sent me to psychiatrists since the age of four because she didn't think little boys should be sad. When my brother was born, I stared out the window for days. Can you imagine that?
~ Andy Kaufman  

It Might Be Argued men are from Earth and women are from Venus, but don't be afraid because we're all in this together. I used to hate everything about Man on the Moon, not from fear, but from loathing Andy Kaufman's death as breaking news.

Suicide prevention getting mainstream attention makes me wonder two things. Why don't we create better underground funding to help troubled youth and how did Bob Hope live to be 100 years old? Does his estate still get kickbacks from military bases in South Korea? NBC, CBC, RTTV or YouTube? I don't know, but give hope a chance.

Beyond The Rum Diary writing blogs on my website again is a quiet reminder it's never over unless you like serials. My experimentation with writing a serial is over. NO more Lucky Charms, Frosted Flakes or Raisin Bran unless you go to Wattpad. I'll let you know, and there's no doubt, Lionheart Leaks completes itself in the distant future beyond my wildest reality-based dreams. 

Movies? Boogie Nights or A Few Good Men. Both are the stupidest good movies I'll never watch again. I can handle the truth. Reality is perceived any way you choose, but there is only one universal truth: Love. So if love is the truth, then what are two evils plaguing mankind? It's very simple.
  1. Women
  2. Disrespect
My advice is avoid lust. If you want to write a sonnet, that's perfectly fine. But don't write a sonnet about the fisherwoman from your dreams. Example:


I'm a codpiece of flesh, lost in a swamp or marsh,
Never touching a woman with pseudo-esteem
Alone on a boat with pirates crude and harsh.
For seven years she's been waiting for a dream,
While I hope to be caught in her infectious net --
On three nights with minnows and three guys
While I'm on land dreaming of her naked wet,
Wondering if she'll be a vision, envisioned wise;
Roughly, I've gazed at the sea once every year,
As I'm dizzy-eyed or mangled with every notion
That she'll never land, over a whale-shaped tear,
As we cling to happiness in a magical potion.
One day, I'll touch her as a supernatural fish
And find a way to say she's my only wish.

Yeah, I'm reading Naked Lunch. Yeah, I'm on YouTube, burrowing through crap because of the faulty programming in my subconscious mind. Junk is art and it makes for great literary fiction, but addiction and drug abuse are huge problems. The Beat Generation influences American counter-culture, expanding awareness, but teaching some of the wrong messages, while using some of the floweriest viral language. These are the harsh realities. I had to dig through the CBC archives before having a nervous breakdown.

Fuck around however you choose, but choose your sources carefully. Lead from example and Lionheart Inc. core values, because mistakes are made. If you want to go live-on-location from Puerto Rico, that's fine, but Jesus Christ (Second Coming believers might want to hear me use Jim Morrison's name in vain) learn from example. Recline in your armchair, sit back, and pretend you're on the loudest beach in the world with your feet in the dirtiest sand.

These EXAMPLES might one day "save" mankind. I just believe the most valuable advice growing up is simply to choose a smart woman and don't let her go (unless you're stupid, or unless she wants you to let her go, and then take a hike and maybe find a pristine beach with dirty sand and a sexier dude with a dirtier mind). But I think growing up without help is a mistake and any good guidance counselor in the world will tell you dirty deeds are done dirt cheap.

I didn't know what I wanted when growing up. Rich and famous ideals got in the way; but without womankind, I must confess, I wanted to be a locksmith and write Very Bad Deeds.

What Belongs In A Bad Library?

What is The Great Beyond? It's anything your heart desires. Watching Sausage Party on the big screen at a Drive-In, there was nothing funny about the movie, instead a reminder that summer is almost over and my mind won't be wandering while watching another movie because I want to make more time for writing. The Great Beyond is where you'll find something different to digest. Something to think about.

The party is over and now my eyes are staring into bright cancerous rays beaming from the computer monitor. Native rights are staring me straight in the face. Google-searching Aboriginal tells me it's a collective name for the original peoples of North America. I remember the first time watching Dances With Wolves and it basically glamorized the destruction of native tribes and ancient civilizations. A sad story, but bad people can't be stereotyped as the bitter Indigenous people. There's bad in every ethnicity, race or creed, and there's bad in every broken family. There's choices and consequences. We can learn from history to avoid stupid lifelong regrets.

But What Is Bad?

Sometimes -- it's not that bad. This means it's still bad, but there are degrees of badness. Going to the University of Wawa is bad, but it's not as bad as Mohawk College. My diploma would probably compare somewhere the same as a degree from Central Michigan University (if we're speaking Navajo or Media Communications which is comparable in my demented mind, tormented from years watching John Wayne movies). Today, there are courses online where you can learn the definition of bad with one click of the fucking mouse:

  1. 1.
    of poor quality; inferior or defective.
    "a bad diet"
  2. 2.
    not such as to be hoped for or desired; unpleasant or unwelcome.
    "bad weather"

Mental illness is bad and it's not good to joke about mental illness unless you've listened to Michael Jackson's Bad from beginning to end or you've got solutions on ways to improve mental health in the world. STOP and take a look around. 

Here's 11 Things You Shouldn't Do If You've Got Bad Mental Health Issues:
  1. Try to make your issues a headline in issues of local newspapers.
  2. Try illegal drugs.
  3. Work at not finding a job.
  4. Discover crime.
  5. Do not listen to health care professionals.
  6. Discover new ways to re-invent bad.
  7. Not listen to family.
  8. Spend money foolishly.
  9. Try to become the next Michael Jackson.
  10. Miss health care appointments.
  11. Watch CNN all day and night.
