Ric Ocasek & Eddie Money…


Date: September 15, 2019

01) Ric Ocasek, Lead Singer of The Cars, Dead in New York at 75

“Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Ric Ocasek, lead singer of the rock band The Cars, died Sunday in New York at age 75.

Police said they received a call around 4 p.m. for an unconscious male at a townhouse on East 19th Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Law enforcement sources confirmed the deceased was Ocasek.”

02) Eddie Money, ‘Two Tickets to Paradise’ Singer, Dies at 70

“Eddie Money, the prolific singer and songwriter whose songs “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Shakin’” and “Take Me Home Tonight” soundtracked popular music in the 1980s, died Friday (Sept. 13). He was 70.”

I know it’s kind of bad to combine memorial posts like this…but I just got this news dumped on me, about an hour ago…and I don’t really have a lot to write about it…

…This really, really sucks…

I had hopes The Cars might make more albums.

I’m thinking Eddie was done in that regard, though.

How to Destroy People: Japan’s Untouchables…

01) How to Destroy People: Japan’s Untouchables

“Japan’s Burakumin are a people within a people. For hundreds of years, they experienced direct persecution that has kept them from being fully functional members of society. Even though they were released from their caste in the 1800’s, the stigma remains to this day.

The one thing this video is missing that I wish I’d added is the historic discrimination against Koreans, and how it is interwoven into the Burakumin (and modern day Yakuza). Worth looking into on your own, if you’re itching to learn more.”

Chronophilias Do Not Cancel Out Sexual Orientation…

Correct me if I am wrong…but I think it was Dr. James Cantor who brought this up a few months back…

ROI007_Different Chronophilias 1

Many people mistakenly believe that because something is classified as a chronophilia, it somehow “cannot be a sexual orientation”…and they extrapolate that “pedophilia cannot be a sexual orientation”, based upon this assumption.

What they fail to realize, is that all human sexual orientations simultaneously exist, as a chronophilia.

ROI007_Different Chronophilias 2

Teleiophilia is, in fact, what most people think of as being the social norm.


It’s sexual attraction to “fully grown” adults, generally eighteen to late thirties.

Mesophilia is another category, which is commonly accepted as socially normal


It’s the sexual attraction to middle aged adults, in their forties and fifties.

Both of these refer to an aspect of a persons sexual orientation, which hinges on physical characteristics normally associated with recognized age groups.

Every single human being who has a sexual orientation, has some form of chronophilia.

Are people who like 18 to 39 year olds lacking a sexual orientation?…No.

…And the same holds true for nepiophiles, pedophiles, hebephiles and ephebophiles [as well as gerontophiles].

This is simply their sexual orientation.

01) The Town Where Gap Year Kids Went To Die

“In Laos, there’s a town with a very seedy reputation. Not long ago, you could buy opium direct from a store menu. The time that earned it the reputation has passed, but not before leaving its mark. This is the story of tourism, and what locals have to give up to obtain it. This is Vang Vieng.”
