positive i don't care any more....

to be politically incorrect (AKA being myself) it's 'drunk weekend' in akron....i'm not the only one who calls it that, so it's not just me---yes i know it doesn't make it right but i don't care....the proper term is 'founder's day weekend' ?! for AA....this means there's like a 1000% increase in harleys in akron....true facts...started hearing them last night and thought next weekend was drunk weekend, but asked mr. google and no it's this weekend...today it's just been harley harley harley harley times infinity on rte 8, tallmadge, and n. main street....i can hear 'em all...i have the AC on in the computer room and a fan and i still hear 'em plain as day....yes, yes i do do what that south park episode suggested!! every fucking time....when i ran an errand today i went up main street and of course there were about a hundred harleys parked on each side of the street...since it's AA i don't feel right taking pix of that, as they do promote anonymity and i can respect that....they now do most of the stuff on the akron u campus and bus people up to headquarters for tours....like 5 years ago there was a HAZE of cigarette smoke in that area of n. main....way to fulfill a stereotype!! i did take a photo of the haze cuz you couldn't see any one....

i have some vintage ads things to do---putting guest hosts on the calendar and rearranging a few things/correcting grammar on our huge honkin' event calendar, lj messages to reply to, and then my internets will be all caught up, aside from my catch up post(s)---i'll divvy them up....i of course have things to do outside; but i'm talking about internets....

i think of things to blog about whilst driving....um?? i suppose if i turned off the music i could use google speak to transcribe whatever but um i don't think that'd be advisable, plus i think it's a law i have to drive with music....soothes the savage beast....hah! i do want to write up some scheduled posts 'musical memories' about certain bands/songs cuz some always make me think of certain things....

anyway, this was on the radio today when i was driving home from vmac and what a damn good tune! phil collins had some great music.....but this was a great song for me to hear today..."i have nothing to lose if i speak my mind"...."i don't care no more you listening? i don't care no more no more"....

the mourning dove couple that resided in my yard pretty much for 3 years left last week....they were either a gay couple, or unable to have children....someone told me it was irish folklore that mourning doves are sent by those who have passed to watch over you and give a sense of peace (paraphrasing how they phrased it, it was worded to me quite beautifully)....a couple days after i FELT a sense of peace and calm last week they were gone....i asked about that and they said they went on to where they were next needed....i feel bad i kept them this long...they were here the length i was involved in something....coincidence? i think not....

the sense of peace and calmness is because i TRULY have finally 'got' the message AVOID GROUPS! STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM GROUPS! yeah, that was like 12+ years or so to finally 'get' but hey, i finally 'got' it!! now i have a robin nesting on 3 sides of my house...did i say that right? i have a robin's nest in the front, on the side, and in the back of my house....all were built within the past week....i looked up and saw robins symbolize rebirth and renewal....yes, i do believe in those things....i don't care if you don't...i think the universe/nature/whatever does send you signs--be it intuition or things around you---and if you're in tune/on the right path you'll see them....i know most people live their lives just fine without any of that....some of us are naturally aware of what's going on around us and we look for portents and signs....i don't care if someone thinks that's mumbo jumbo---i would hope whomever thought it wasn't a member of a religious affiliation though....cuz uh, well your pot is meeting a kettle...and yeah, i don't believe in a deity...never have, never will....i would say i'm spiritual and that has nothing to do with a deity....

don't think nature is a 'religion' though....nature just IS....we're all from the earth---we are stardust---we all return to the earth....what you put out---good or bad---will come back to you....call it karma if you want...help others as best you can....speak out against abuses to help others....ignore any negativity thrown your way....it comes from anger and/or confusion....don't care about it....

for some reason i still have a problem listening to bowie but not prince...um? i dunno....but i've been listening to A LOT of prince....damn did his lyrics influence me...and both had the message to be yourself....i've always tried to never conform but i have, unfortunately, stayed quiet on my own opinions and/or about things i saw....i don't care anymore and the hell with stifling myself...don't like it? don't care....wouldn't want to cause anyone intentional harm; but i'll be damned if i suppress myself....fuck that! onward, forward, upward!

positivity? YES! ....have you had your plus sign today?

Love the songs...
I love those songs, and "I Don't Care" is a song I listen to when I'm in a terrible mood and just over something. Anyway, I could only imagine how obnoxious those motorcycles could have been. I love Harley's just not groups of them roaring around. I have friends from Akron, but I doubt it's from the same state.

Re: Love the songs...
I have a good friend from high school who has a Harley and even HE finds the groups of them obnoxious! It's still going on! Probably til around 11pm or so. They leave tomorrow morning after their 7am trip to Dr. Bob's grave site---those poor people on Aquaduct Avenue!

Akron, Ohio? Gosh, never considered there'd be other Akrons as it's sort of 'weird' name and now I'm gonna go look up to see how Akron got it's name!!

I Don't Care is a great tune for that!!

Re: Love the songs...
I love the National Lampoon Yearbook Parody that was set in "Dacron" Ohio.

But yeah: there are other Akrons. (Mississipi, Ontario, Michigan, and everything.)

Re: Love the songs...
'tis true! You learn something every day! :) I looked up this Akron's name origin.

Akron was originally laid out in 1825 and in 1841 became the seat of Summit County. The name came from a Greek word meaning "an elevation" or "point."

Well yes, a lot of the area around here is elevated. For example, I live on North Hill! :)

RE: Re: Love the songs...
I always thought it meant that Dayton and Akron had merged...Dacron!

In the news, also from Nat Lamp, Bowling Green State University will merge with Ball State University...the new name will be Bowling Ball State. .... Badabing!

That's exactly what they meant!

Akron, Colorado here. I'm not from there but I have a few friends from there. That's the North Eastern part of CO.

If they're in public—i.e., not at a meeting—you can take all the damn pictures you want! If I were standing around outside a known meeting space—and you know the AA's hang out and smoke and gab before and after meetings—I couldn't very well expect someone not to take my picture, could I? It's public: snap away!

Yea, I know they're not in a meeting and are in a public area so it's totally legal to take their photo, I just don't feel right about it---yes, I am a freak. Now if it was any other group, aside from AA, I'd take a pix---well I'd probably make an exception for a few others I can imagine.

They gather outside the official world headquarters, which amusingly is on the ground floor of a building that has a head shop on the 2nd floor. They go up there to do a tour, then stand outside and smoke. No meetings there.
