Egg-Shaped Tiny Home That Runs on Renewable Energy…


Date: May 31, 2015

00) Official Ecocapsule Website

01) Egg-Shaped Tiny Home That Runs on Renewable Energy

“The Ecocapsule is an egg-shaped, wind- and solar-powered microdwelling from Bratislava, Slovakia–based Nice Architects that is billed as a portable tiny home, cottage, pop-up hotel, or emergency shelter that doubles as a charging station for electric vehicles.”

02) Ecocapsule is the egg-shaped tiny home that can go off-grid and off-pipe

“Often when we show tiny homes, readers point out that designers should learn from boats, where people have been organizing small spaces forever. Now Bratislava based Nice Architects introduce the very nice and very boat-like Ecocapsule, ” a low-energy house packed into a compact form. It merges an energy efficient shape, compact volume and off-grid capabilities with the luxuries of a warm bed, running water and a hot meal.”

I’d love to own one of these…but, dang…the price tag…

This isn’t the kind of thing designed for low income [or poverty] populations.


Album: Blue Threw It All…


Date: May 28, 2015

Blue Threw It All [17:07]

01) Argon

02) Electrical

03) Hyperion

04) Bejabers

05) Demirelief

06) Evocation

07) Scepter

08) Cathectic

Blue Threw It All is my ninth official, normal album…It spans 17 minutes and 7 seconds. This collection is very up beat and “techno” in flavor. Personally, I like how this turned out.

01) Argon – Great, strong track to start off with.

02) Electrical – A loop…weak as “a song”, but still cool.

03) Hyperion – Another good track.

04) Bejabers – An outlier with this collection, slightly…This one has it’s own flavor and style. It’s a favorite.

05) Demirelief – Cool track.

06) Evocation – Cool track.

07) Scepter – Pretty good stuff.

08) Cathectic – Not my favorite track of the album…but a decent way to bring things to a close.

01) Bernie Sanders Continues To Champion Progressive Ideas

“Bernie Sanders is back and once again he’s pushing for policies that make all the sense in the world. By that I mean that they are already policies throughout much of the world. Almost all industrialized countries provide things like a livable minimum wage, guaranteed vacation time and things of that sort.”

Waiting For “Superman” has helped launch a movement to achieve a real and lasting change through the compelling stories of five unforgettable students such as Emily, a Silicon Valley eighth-grader who is afraid of being labeled as unfit for college and Francisco, a Bronx first-grader whose mom will do anything to give him a shot at a better life.

“Pedophilia is bad. But how bad is it? And in what ways, and for what reasons, is it bad? This is a thorny issue, and sadly, one seldom discussed by ethicists. I argue in this article that pedophilia is bad only because, and only to the extent that, it causes harm to children, and that pedophilia itself, as well as pedophilic expressions and practices that do not cause harm to children, are morally all right. I further argue that the aim of our social and legal treatment of pedophilia should be to minimize harm
to children, and that current practices are often counterproductive in this respect.”

Don’t ever let it be said, that I fail to bring contrary viewpoints to this blog. 🙂

…With “Pedophilia is bad.” as a starting point…this can seem like it’s just going to be propaganda…but I encourage you to read this entire article.

For sure…it starts off on a rough foot…but I urge you to read on a deeper level, and find the useful information which is shared here.

Some of the viewpoints expressed in this article:

– Simply being a pedophile is neither moral nor immoral.

– Having Adult Child Sex is wrong, because of the potential for serious harm.

– Erotic stories and virtual graphics appealing to pedophilic sexual release, should be allowed.

The issues of blameworthiness [ignorance, bad luck] and mental illness are also explored…plus more.

My response:

There is a lot shared here, and I am not really up to going through this with a fine tooth comb…

…But this article comes from the harmfulness bias…It throws us pedosexuals a few crumbs, by stating the obvious that we should not be tormented for merely existing…And it throws us the bone, that written and virtual erotica aimed at pedosexuals should be allowed.

There are a number of arguments shared and considered here.

It’s better than most of what is floating around out there. I thank Ole for his critique.
