Why Do Architects Insist on Using Flat Roofs?…

….

“It is a commonly held belief by non-architects (and even some architects) that gabled roofs are inherently better than flat ones. The argument typically goes that a gable demonstrates a ‘form follows function’ sensibility, easily shedding water and snow using geometry and gravity. So, flat roofs might leak. While that’s true, this video blows the roof off the topic by taking a finer look at some points that might change your mind. This includes Louis Sullivan’s original reason for writing the phrase “form ever follows function,” as well as the ability of flat roofs to offer outdoor public spaces, supporting green roofs, structural simplicity, wind considerations, among many others. There’s also another, competing functional/formal reason for why a low slope roof might be more prudent than a more aggressive slope, even in snowy areas like Chicago.”

“Shut up, Wesley. Wil Wheaton has a meltdown on Facebook over Dave Chappelle headlining a Netflix comedy event and has harsh words for anybody involved with the event. The problem is, anybody who’s anybody in comedy is part of this thing including Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Pete Davidson, Ray Romano, Seth Rogen, Tig Notaro, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr, Iliza Shlesinger, Chelsea Handler, Chris Rock, Conan O’Brien, Deon Cole, Eddie Izzard, and Ellen DeGeneres and many, MANY more. Good luck cancelling all of THEM, Wesley.”

Kid Rock – Rage for the Machine – Renegade Cut…

“What is the new Kid Rock song even about anyway? What does “Don’t Tell Me How to Live” mean to the musician and to his audience?”

On top of everything else…his “music” absolutely sucks…his alteration between rap and country [and southern rock], is modest in quality when at it’s best.

…I’d never even heard of this untalented hack, prior to him bursting on the scene in the mid 90’s…and I come from an area not that far from where he grew up.

It says everything, when his best song consists of riffs taken from Warren Zevon and Lynyrd Skynyrd…and it’s only good for the instrumental work.

He couldn’t even manage to make a collaboration with Bob Seger decent, for crying out loud.

I’ve viewed “Kid Rock” as being nothing more than a corporate [special interest] creation, with lots of money behind his push, all along…but no natural earning his way to “the top”…Kind of how I view most christian rock…They’re artificially pushed in front of audiences…and maybe they have “a” audience…but the overarching body of their work flounders in the bigger market.

Big tech and woke are destroying the middle class – Joel Kotkin interview…

“With wealth inequality soaring and the power of the elites growing, is society returning to the feudal era? The demographer and geographer Joel Kotkin joins Steven Edginton in this week’s Off Script podcast to discuss his theory of “neo-feudalism”. Watch the full episode above or listen on your podcast app by searching for “Off Script”.”

We need universal basic income…this is the only grounds on which I agree with the silicon valley oligarchs…

…We also need universal food, shelter, travel and health/hygiene benefits.

Capitalism is a failed structure…It has abandoned the vast majority.

Considering what is entirely possible today…capitalism has no valid excuse to even exist anymore.

We can take care of literally everyone…except those who absolutely refuse to be taken care of.

…We have the ability to do it, at any rate.

This is a good interview, though.

We Aren’t Just Angry…

“It can be really frustrating when you are discussing your deconstruction and someone interrupts and says that you are just angry.

Why does this happen so much? Is there any truth to it? Is it helpful to the conversation?”

It happens because so few of “them” can face the reality, that a “god” is likely to not even exist…and there is no credible proof of a “god” existing.

They don’t want people exposing the massive holes in their desires [ie: to “live forever”]…so they throw up these claims, in attempts to trip up people who don’t share their beliefs.

It’s a very old, human tactic…endlessly assert and argue something to frustrate and shut people up/out…so “they” can ultimately have their own way…It’s about neutralizing opposition to their desire.

This is precisely what has been happening with the crazed Donald Trump supporters and QAnon sorts…They keep forcefully repeating a blatant lie, because they want to impose their will upon everyone else.

Most people aren’t going to stand there, endlessly refuting people who just keep repeating the same accusations, while refusing to acknowledge objective reality…

When you see they are solely trying to unite, isolate “you”, and make it clear they have [and will] completely rejected “you”…you understand that this is all about domination.

It’s all about “them” making it clear to “you”…that “you” have no power or influence, or ability to change “civilization”.

And, yes…I’ve been saying this for many, many years…It is ridiculous for anyone to be mad, at anything they honestly believe does not exist.

It’s a ludicrous claim, which inhibits communication.

Not concluding that something exists, has never made anyone mad at that “thing”…or concept.

If we have any right to anger…it’s towards the institutions and cultures which mislead us into these mythologies and superstitions.
