On one hand, the neighbor that got robbed DOES live diagonally through two buildings away from here. So I don’t know why I expected to find anything noteworthy across multiple days of recordings on three cameras…… but I tried…

I really hoped it would be useful but so far, not to anybody but the wife going “what the hell was all that noise outside at X time?” (turns out a dude was using a sledge hammer on a drain cover to get it open, then sprayed out inside lol)

Once Upon a Crazy

Last weekend I was confiding in somebody who I had observed to be understanding. A piece of information had come to my attention which was contrary to an assumption I had made – making them relatable to the topic. Especially after I found out they were in a similar situation which I observed as seeming favorable.

Now, while their situation was not what I am dealing with or wish to deal with at all, it was a highly advanced version of what I was thinking about talking about. So I figured, everything lines up, should be a chill discussion.

Almost immediately, what was said was blown out of context and well beyond proportion. Just as suddenly as the conversation started, they blocked me.

It baffles me how people confuse or simply don’t understand the difference of appreciating the beauty of the moon, and wanting to try and travel there. It’s simple and wonderful to have the chance to see a full moon, or a harvest moon, or blood moon. It’s good to be aware of your surroundings, and the wondrous sights you can be exposed to.

I traveled the country briefly and took many thousands of photographs of the various landscapes and skylines, plants and animals. I paint and create graphical art in photoshop, and have made the art for all of my music and text related releases. I see things, good and bad.

Then I checked their page from an alternate account, curious what nightmares I might find after the explosive one-sided conversation. And sure enough, there it was. Sharing the few paragraphs of commentary, followed by pages and pages of craziness and vastly incorrect interpretations.

Worst of all, they talked about the law and bringing CPS in because I can’t be a father if my brain is like “this.” “this,” being their far fetched fantasy extraction from what had actually been said. I showed my wife and several friends and all of them laughed and said “that’s ridiculous. don’t worry about that, it’s stupid.” Well, they were right. It was ridiculous. It was stupid. It was laughably untrue from top to bottom.

However, that didn’t comfort me at all. The cops said “they would look into it” though considering they barely have time to look into actual tangible robberies – another of which happened Tuesday night in the building next to us – they’re not going to flip somebody’s life around rooting for shit based on a couple paragraphs of nothing text.

CPS, on the other hand, I do not trust at all. They’ve gone insane in the past, taking multiple children away just with verbal commentary from no more than three people, launching entire families into turmoil with court, appearing to do whatever they want regardless of what anybody in the family says.

Worry about it, I did. All day Sunday and Monday. I was wound up tight. I’ve given up huge sections of my life to try my hardest and give as much time and focus as i possibly can, in order to try and be the best father I can be to Lily. The last thing I need is a few paragraphs over a social media messenger to fuck all that up over something that was entirely misunderstood.

One thing they mentioned was telling neighbors, which is assinine. Tell them what? Something that Beth and I can clear up in a couple minutes of conversation? Are they that sure about their misconception that they’re willing to drop dollars on printing, or time writing, whatever crazy shit they think they need to say to however many neighbors they think they need to try and send it to to make sure they hit everybody they think needs to know?

The topic was involving somebody who lives several buildings away from me. There’s almost no chance they’re going to mail an entire complex and luck into them. Most likely just cause a lot of drama and discomfort between immediate neighbors I already know and talk to on a regular basis. I even give everybody in my building access to the cameras I put up outside so they can also see what’s going on outside. Cameras, which by the way, I talked to the neighbors about before putting up in case it made any of them uncomfortable. Somebody in my building was robbed, so that happened. Now we have some sort of a window to look back through and see if anything strange is going on.

Anyway, I’m pretty over it now, but felt just irritated enough to dump this here.

Have a great week, strangers, acquaintances and friends.


There’s a homeless (I assume?) person who set up camp across the canal from us. The only other neighbor in this building on the canal side, I’ve given my phone number to twice so we can info share and they’ve never texted me. Last few times I’ve stopped by to share info, it’s seemed like I was intruding so I just stopped all together. I assume the middle child can see the tent from their window, so I assume they’re aware. Assume. That word.

In my experience the vast majority of homeless just want to be left alone where they try to set up camp. So I don’t really worry about it. I’ve been watching the camera triggers closely since I saw the tent pop up and I’ve seen nothing at all other than neighbors, cleaning crews and the usual shit. So, shrug. I’ll keep aware, anyway. The fucking cameras are buggy shitbeards but they’re doing the minimal, so far..

    • Melissa Anne Phillips Actually, for me, it does. The idea that vaccine research has used aborted babies and aborted fetal cells are listed as ingredients is problematic (among a whole list of other problems). I have heard that the Catholic church has said it is a necessary evil and okayed them; however, the Catholic Church is not my moral compass.

    • Active NowErik Smith Comments like yours can absolutely alienate people, as well. I’ll be honest as possible. 

      Not all vaccine research has used aborted babies and aborted fetal cells. Your generalization that all have is very problematic. But, that’s par for the course in anti-anything propaganda.Hide or report this

You know, since countless thousands of slaves were forced to work on factories and laboratories for the Nazis, where the technology was developed, tested, produced and eventually Mass manufactured. Surely your heart wouldn’t allow you to take part in such things, on the blood of so many that actually lived lives. Since you take that stance on fetuses, which never had lives.

You Can’t Make This Up

I just don’t even

I’ve been in sexual relationships where we wake each-other up for sex. And I’ve definitely been like, no not right now, and gone back to sleep, when sex had already been initiated while I was asleep. And had the same in reverse. Even though we stopped when the other said no, the sex already happened, so by this definition that’s rape. I think this definition is as laughably ridiculous as many legal definitions that have fucked over people who should have won cases, because reality isn’t so cut and dry. That’s not rape. So many arguments and examples why that’s fucking stupid I can’t even pick one, so …. closing this. lol.

Strange Interviewish

Last night I talked to somebody who I guess coaches people on how to do whatever to make money doing whatever or whatever. The longer the conversation went on, the more annoyed I got. I answered two or six or fifty times I don’t know, what I’m after. The whole point as i understood it was to make money doing what you love. i explained several times I am terrible at selling myself. If I could do art work, I said a few times I don’t even care what it is – if I could just write novels if the person working with me could sell that, I would. if I could just make music, because that’s what the person could move, I would. Whatever, i’m really flexible. The bottom line is I just suck at selling myself and I use art to decompress. It helps my depression a lot. I don’t try to fit in any genre. I just do what I like in writing, music, art, everything. Some people love it, anyway. So I don’t see why I should try to mold things for this reason or that reason, for sales, so I can’t answer that I have a target audience or a target anything. I don’t. My target is simply, create. Create, and in the process, I get out a lot that weighs me down emotionally.

So the whole goal is, simply, If I can live off selling this, I want to. But I need somebody to do the selling side. I even said I would split it 50/50. That seems insane to a lot of my friends I’ve made who are actually in that business. Nobody pays more than even a full third to people combined for helping. But I’m willing to. I don’t care. Even if they do the work for a few years and it just takes off on its own and they don’t have to do much but cash checks. That’s fine.

So that annoyed me to the point I didn’t know what to say again because all I knew was rewording multiple things before. And I felt like a cold was coming on. Plus somebody who I had let close to me and talked to a whole lot, was a total fucking retard earlier in the morning and I was still pissed off about that which helped exactly nothing. So having to repeat myself on what seemed like an ongoing endless loop – didn’t help.

Anyway….. Feel even more like I’m getting this stupid fucking cold… so we’ll see how it goes..

Crazy Storm

A storm that hit us here in Phoenix, which actually produced a funnel cloud over eastern Mesa/Gilbert – is now hitting my home town and dumping a ton if snow in north central u.s. It’s a cyclone, and this satellite gif is awesome. You’re welcome.
