imprisoned in unwisdom's realm
why is it always the spiritual ones?
Om my aching back, here we go again. A blog that styles itself Lectio Divina, or daily readings (personally, I think I woulda quit with the Latin, but nevermind) has lifted this pretty bit of Sanskrit from Mystic Bourgeoisie (which I not-so-btw legally licensed from Dreamstime, and which image moreover is hosted though the kind graces of Panix in The Big City).
The way this appeared on our humble self-appointed Lector's page was like so...
So hey "rhapsodysinger," I guess you're just what I needed: someone to feed! Well no, not really. I wonder. Is it the "mystic" part of Mystic Bourgeoisie that makes these people foolishly believe I'm some sort of mellow fellow traveller? Clearly, our boy didn't bother to read my post from which he ripped this graphic: zen and the art of the cultural shell game. If you're at all familiar with Mystic Bourgeoisie, you can take a wild guess what it says.

But what to do with this highly evolved individual? At first, I thought I'd let him off with a warning. But then I remembered that I'm opposed in principle to forgiveness. So it looked liked he'd have to suffer. Let's see then... hmmm. I was listening to ZZ Top's spirited performance of Gimme All Your Lovin when I first ran across his page, which is very likely what inspired my work on this replacement graphic...

In situ, the result looked sorta like this. And don't worry. He saw "the whole gang" part even if we cannot in this truncated screen grab.
I say looked, past tense, because the dude was quick to realize that he had himself become imprisoned in unwisdom's realm. Did he learn from his error? ("How difficult for man, though meditating much.") Of course not. Instead, he immediately went looking for another pretty graphic to steal. Typical of these bastards. Well, this time he fucked with the wrong guy. Is it not written...
“...the way to Him is barred,
for than all subtleties of reason
He is more subtle.”
At this late stage in our larcenous miscreant's rapidly decaying karmic profile, all I can do is repeat the words that ended my initial post: I salute the hyper-credulous, non-caveat-empathic consumer in you.

Chris Locke's photos More of Chris Locke's photos

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
