At the back of the hill

Warning: If you stay here long enough you will gain weight! Grazing here strongly suggests that you are either omnivorous, or a glutton. And you might like cheese-doodles.
BTW: I'm presently searching for another person who likes cheese-doodles.
Please form a caseophilic line to the right. Thank you.

Occassionally one wishes to know what the rest of the world is thinking. As good a way to go about finding out as anything is to hit the 'next blog' link on the top left hand side, under the banner.
This brings up another blog, chosen more or less because of the subject matter of the post you are reading, and often not at all related thereto.
A lot of people write about clothes or their kids; all of them boring.
Some don't, and aren't. Food and children.
Weird eats, little monsters.
Food horror.

Semi-random citing:

' "My name is Miranda", the raccoon presented herself. She was wearing a white blouse with a black skirt and had her hair fastened underneath a small hood.'

[from Viktor's All-purpose Blog, which is mostly about reading, and the books Viktor likes or not.]

"An unidentified woman in a video that has gone viral was seen rubbing the fruits she sells in between her legs before packing them for sale."
"The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, gave indications on Wednesday that Nigerians of 30 years of age would soon be eligible to be President of the country."

[from Gistexpression, Nigerian stuff.]

'I remember when I was a kid, I asked my dad, "Dad, how come you never compliment us on anything?" He said, "Whenever I'm not saying anything, that's a compliment." '

[From Bitter Melon Girl, an illustrator from Toronto in San Francisco. It's mostly about food. She's Cantonese, which means, naturally, food.]


[from 傳媒人心聲, mostly political, from the perspective of a Hong Kong person in the United States. Mainlanders may not like this.]

"Help! Help! The Globolinks may be a weird film, but it is also a weird film with a pedigree. Commissioned by the Hamburg State Opera, it’s a television film of a children’s opera written and directed by Gian Carlo Menotti, an Italian-American composer who was American composer Samuel Barber’s librettist of choice. Menotti’s most well known work is another children’s opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors, the filmed version of which, commissioned by NBC, became the first television Christmas special to be aired on American TV on an annual basis (this was obviously quite some time before the advent of Rudolph and Charlie Brown.) That it is not quite so well known is perhaps due to the fact that, while Amahl had clear biblical overtones, Globolinks is about psycho-surrealist space aliens whose spoken language sounds like Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music."

[from DIE, DANGER, DIE, DIE, KILL!, a text and illustration rich exploration of pop culture.]

These were the rewards for putting up with much else.

On the whole, scrolling through random blogs is like a roller coaster ride, albeit one with immensely long flat spaces. There is only so much yoga, personal exploration, natural living, and tortuous existential musing that a man can tolerate, and fashion, clothing, poetry, and pictures of lovely dresses and shoes, or pineapple upside-down cake, as put on the internet by "normal" people, can be painfully dreary, even excruciating.
Most people just aren't very interesting.

I am like Jesus; I suffered so that you don't have to.

Please worship my holy blog.
