Pedro's Corner

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

The only way to settle this is for Pedro and Promethean to throw down in a game of chess!
The purpose of my life would seem to be to express the truth as I discover it, but in such a manner that it is completely devoid of authority. By having no authority, by being seen by all as utterly unreliable, I express the truth and put everyone in a contradictory position where they can only save themselves by making the truth their own.

I reopened my old Zynga chess account (after three years) just now. So my peak skill is 1408 with 109 wins, 37 losses, 1 draw. I just played the computer to see if I could get back into it and I gotta tell ya... I ain't feelin it. There's these weird looking little figurines that move around a checkered board and I'm like wtf. One of em looks like a miniature horse without legs, man. And I have a king lookin dude but he has a cross on his head and I don't fuck with christians, so....

Quitting the weed will only help you.

Keep at it, once you get past the motivation barrier of the difference in chemical states, it will be like having acquired a superpower.

One sacrifices much, in quitting the herb, but one gains much.

Also, weed or no weed, you're gonna start losing like a motherfucker until you get in the groove again. It just is what it is.

But, you know, if you can't look back and cry, then it ain't worth much either.

U need to get a place close to a college campus bruh. Start hanging out at the coffee shops and strike up intellectual conversations with people so the college chicks hear u and go 'damn that dude is smart'. I don't know why you live beside fat bastards. I feel like your housing situation is beyond ur control because of reasons that ought not be. Oh I dunno.... HIGH RENT, LOW WAGES, etc.

I'm dirt poor because I invested my life in weird pursuits instead of holding a steady job and proving my worth to people that can profit from it. I have no complaints. Still, the gazzillion regulations in this commie hell hole do make rent and expenses generally a nightmare.

U know what. Ur right. I feel so incredibly inspired by ur words that I just called a carpenters wanted ad and told the dude I'd work for six dollars an hour and not a penny more. Because I'm hard, bro. And I told him if he offered me a raise, I'd sue his ass for harassment.

When will you drop this working man fantasy and start making money from laying back and making music?

You know how rare it is to be able to make music?

Artists are the worse.

Bunch of insecure egomaniacal actual masochists who refuse to dedicate their lives to what actually fulfills them.

You all disgust me.

Because in this business, you either gotta play the blues or sing with a high voice.

Listen man, you'll never be a famous rapper. U need to forget about that and get a goddamn job.
