Yippie-kay-yay Motherlicker!(Where did George’s Teeth Go?)

Recently, I was going through old papers and found some creative writings from college.  Unfortunately, my Detroit Lion haikus are nowhere to be found.

St. Anthony, St. Anthony
Please come down
Something is lost
And can’t be found

Also, look for the Lions’ run defense, effort, running game, etc.  Alas Lions, it did not take long for the true character of the Detroit Lions to reveal itself.  Mediocrity and dysfunction followed by laughably poor excuses.   Detroit Lions football!  Gotta Love It!  At least they provide a good amount of humor.  Naked drunk driving Wendy’s trips, coaches run over by golf carts, locker-room bickering.  Mediocre as they may be, they entertain and isn’t that what we are really asking for.  Who wants boring success like the Spurs. Enough on the Lions.

These writing below were written with the idea of telling a story while limited to two sentences.

Cleaning

The vacuum cleaner was caught on something.  Danny shut it off, lifted it up, and discovered a black hole.

Last Man on Earth

The last man on earth was hungry, for it had been several days without a meal.  As he reached down to feel for something to eat he remembered he had already eaten his arm.

Necro

George wished his lover could audibly express her pleasure.  Dick had to remind him that corpses don’t talk.

Last Words

As Laura looked into her mother’s eyes, she saw love reciprocated.  With her last breath, her mother left her daughter with a hopefull message, “My darling, see you in Hell.”

Good Morning

As my radio alarm came on, a voice alerted me that a nuclear holocaust had started.  I hit the snooze and rolled over.

Sheed

Clang goes the free throw.  “The ball don’t LIE.”

Leornardo Da Vinci was a subconscious actor in the my personal development.  The first book I loved as a child was a book about Da Vinci.  It was an interactive book well before the development of talking Disney books.  In a education course, I was given a sheet titled “How To Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci” synthesized by Michael Gelb.  Sorry if I am boring you, but cultivating an insatiable lust for knowledge is one idea I push.  It makes me sad and bewildered when I meet people who are devoid of intellectual curiosity.  Certainly many college students are there just to gain knowledge for the sake of making $crilla.  Enjoyment of learning for learning’s sake allows one to lose oneself in the knowledge.  Anyways, here are the seven principles laid out by Michael.

“Curiousita”

An insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.

“Dimostrasione”

A commitment to test knowledge through experience, persistence, and a willingness to learn from mistakes.

“Sensazione”

The continual refinement of the senses, espexially sight, as the means to enliven experience.

“Sfumato”

(literally “Going up in Smoke”) A willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty.

“Arts/Science”

The development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination.  “Whole-brain” thinking.

“Corporalita”

The cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, ftiness, and poise.

“Connessione”

A recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena.  Systems thinking.

Da Vinci was a polymath and made his mark in many avenues.  Having many interests is what makes someone a Renaissance Man, and Da Vinci was the archetype.  A man fueled by curiosity can never truly be bored or limited by lack of money or abundance of wall.

Music to follow tomorrow.  Keep it funky!

Watch out this weekend for gangs of drunk seniors motoring on hover rounds.
