Each person has one mind, right? Wrong, according to the Concept of Internal Cohabitation - we are all born with two autonomous, sentient minds. One of them can think rationally and relate to other people, and one of them is fundamentally negative in outlook, and opposed to relating. Both minds watch the world through our senses, but compete for control of the body. But if this is indeed the case, why is it not common knowledge? How could such a fundamental aspect of human nature go unnoticed for so long? comment posted at 8:55 AM on Sep-21-09 comment posted at 9:16 AM on Sep-21-09
Dear Allen, I really enjoyed your story on trying to live on 500k in New York City. I lived on 32k in New York City, and boy was it possible! Granted, that was in 2000, and I lived in Brooklyn, and I had yet to develop my habit for cab rides or the blood of Peruvian children (so expensive!). I want to do my part, so I've gone through your article and noted some areas where maybe bankers can save some money just like we're all trying to save money right now. comment posted at 11:46 AM on Feb-11-09
Congress must back sex!
According to Larry, "Americans can do without cars and such", but it can't do without sex...and for an extra $5 billion US, he will help Americans do who ever, I mean what ever it takes to get people using porn. However, maybe, just maybe that the decline in sales is due to the free porn access on the net. Another article about it here comment posted at 6:34 AM on Jan-8-09
We're drowning in quirk.
It is the ruling sensibility of today’s Gen-X indie culture, defined territorially by the gentle ministrations of public radio’s This American Life; the strenuously odd (and now canceled) TV sitcom Arrested Development; the movies of Wes Anderson; Dave Eggers’s McSweeney’s Web site; the performance art, music, and writing of Miranda July; and the just-too-wacky-to-be-fully-believable memoirs of Augusten Burroughs. It’s been 20 years of beneficent, wide-eyed gazing upon the oddities of our fellow man. David Byrne probably birthed contemporary quirk around 1985— halfway between his “Psycho Killer” beginnings with the Talking Heads and his move to global pop—when he sang the song “Stay Up Late”: “Cute, cute, little baby / Little pee-pee, little toes.” (As it happens, Byrne appeared on July’s recent book tour.) Jon Cryer’s “Duckie” Dale in Pretty in Pink came a year later, and quirk was on its way. comment posted at 1:22 PM on Sep-5-07
