The Structure of Guilt, Anxiety & BOREDOM!!

“The Structure of Awareness”, 1969, Thomas C. Oden

Part III, the structure of boredom, analogously, is as follows: The self (1) relates to the now or present actuality in the mode of immediate experiencing (2). When that present (3) is symbolized as being devoid of values regarded as necessary for one's existence, one experiences boredom (5). Boredom is the awareness that the essential values through which one fulfills himself are not able to be actualized under these present circumstances. To the degree to which these limited values are elevated to absolutes which appear to be unactualizable (6), one is vulnerable to intensive, depressive, demonic boredom.

Video of Aldous Huxley discussing female bosoms !!

Watch the genius philosopher and writer of “Brave New World”, Aldous Huxley, briefly discuss female bosoms from a historical and social / cultural perspective during an interview.  In this rare footage, Huxley makes some insightful and witty points on the subject.   Educational and hilarious at the same time; notice how he’s struggling not to laugh.  I loved how he was smiling good-humoredly as he analyzed the issue…

Can’t believe this only has 100 views on YouTube…

Just Blaze plays DJ set with Sushi – Sushi Sequencer

I just read about this and found it rather funny and creative, definitely smart and original. Apparently, an experimental sound system has been developed that can detect colored sushi plates and play a specific sound. Hip hop producer Just Blaze tried the innovative system out and actually made an awesome groundbreaking sushi-fueled DJ set for some Japanese locals at a revolutionary Sushi-go-round in Japan. You’re sure to laugh but the mix he creates is impressive to say the least. Watch the video here.

South Park Alcohol Commercial

Personally, I have been a little disappointed in South Park’s latest season.  That changed a couple weeks ago with the episode “Freemium Isn’t Free”.  Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have once again proved they are one of the most perceptive social humorists out there.  The following clip from the episode mocks the essence of pretty much any commercial for alcohol ever made.  Concise, hilarious and to the point, this is an excellent parody.  Watch and enjoy!

Hilarious skit on SNL with actor Woody Harrelson

Last Saturday Woody Harrelson hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time since 1989.  One of the show’s most ingenious and humorous skits starred a dreadlocked Woody and a crowd of New Yorkers taking to the streets to celebrate the new laws concerning possession of cannabis.  The skit rightfully and cleverly points out the amendment’s limitations since possession of up to 25 grams has been decriminalized but smoking even a joint in public is still punishable.  Laughs are guaranteed!
