    Brilliant.

    I think a lot about the transition from a manufacturing economy to a service economy, but I don’t really have the vocabulary to describe it.

    To quote (from memory) Utah Philips:

    “The past didn’t go anywhere. I can go outside, grab a big rock and drop it on your foot. The past didn’t go away.”

    I’ve been trying to replace my rear brakes all week. Every problem I’ve had comes down to spring tension.

    That stuff is probably what Bender Bending Rodriguez learned in Bending School.

    i spent 2010 amongst welds, springs, bolts, castings, threadings, gears, and bearings professionally. now when i am not drawing pay i am around welds springs etc bringing a dead machine back to life. i have strong emotions about all of this, all of this, and i am scared always of talking about them because they are so full of withering hate for chips and boards and software. it makes me think of the buddhist allegory of a father watching his kids play in a burning house. oh, man.
