Twitter quote of interest-spacedate: captain's log.

thought I'd be serious and pass along events as they transpired to the best of recorded knowledge...
in other words, a recant of the brief past:

jesatiu: have you ever seen man change things? I have. I said, "join me, watch me..."
jesatiu: @theunited I would walk five blocks and I would walk six blocks and i won't stop editing man until 140 characters has run its course.
jesatiu: @Hunee just what the doctor of infatuation said before removal of the ability to desire...it'll be ok buddy...
jesatiu: @Hunee je pense silencio est muy beuno parce que que el guitare est trop avante...un peu, et toi, elle pensaint(conjugate!), eh? el diablo
non! est trés idealiste, et aussi, elle est beaucoup forte, et el dentisto est un whacky mo fo, ya get me?...the butcher the baker...
jesatiu : @Hunee AND the candlestick maker...weeeee...fun times indeed thou art partaking of...but alas, je dois travaille.

And an excellent quote from @AnnBernard
"@scottph It's shaken me up to my core - yes, more thank great...it's amazing. "

Taken totally out of context and misappropriated wildly.

Unless applied to the symptoms for the following lyrics and state of being a being.

jesatiu "too much work and i'm spent...there's too much pressure and armament...and all these little things in life, they all create this haze."

Hunee @jesatiu morning hugs for you buddy ...it'll be ok :) smile

PaulWalsh : I absolutely love what I do. I love my friends. Im delighted to have taken this path. Are you? If not only you can change your environment.
jesatiu @ldpodcast. that must be frustrating. could be a sign. 501c3 status not so difficult...in long run, in short term: that must be frustrating. about 3 hours ago from web in reply to LDpodcast

Enabling 501 c(3) classification for ldpodcast a good thing. Trust me.

jesatiu @paulwalsh. change. the word of the millenium so far. but what comes of it, in reality, when we look back to ten years from now...hmmm.
jesatiu @paulwalsh don't get me wrong, i'm pleased you are pleased with where you are, that is something to be excited about. many can't state same.
jesatiu @paulwalsh I'm also in that position in isolated sense, yet the larger global picture often seems to show painful reflections of...humanity.
(Or could there be instances of inhumanity among us?) (Beware the rhetorical; advice.)
jesatiu "too much work and i'm spent...there's too much pressure and armament...and all these little things in life, they all create this haze."

not so bad food...

Mccain/US elite allies push for Clinton, fear running against Obama


larry johnson, in this case, proves that, in the case of "chris," it is possible that, "you can fool some of the people all of the time."

larry johnson is a bigot, racist (unintentionally), and is continuing to push for a Mccain led White House.

Several commenters have seen this as fact, because, simply, it is fact.
Review the comments, be very open minded, and between the lines you will read that Mr. Johnson is a spy in the ranks of the Democratic party.

I am not sure why, "Chris," you are so convicted, with your support for and admiration of this man, but I assure you, from reading what you have written, you are being led astray.
God I am not, but in your case, might as well be.

I have erected no strawman argument, I have reduced Johnson's comments to barebones brevity, and that is what you see.

You see Johnson claiming that Obama is not only aligned with rap music (do i need to explain how offbase this distraction is?) but that Clinton is the only hope for the democratic party, in that Obama will allow terrorism.

Why? Because Mccain has a better chance of beating Clinton, as Bush did beating Kerry, than he does of beating Obama.

A (republican) wolf in (democratic) sheep's clothing.

Take notice. See the fear message coming from the elite (forget party, party is used only to distract the general population from the real elite) and recognize it. It demonstrates that not only is Obama electable, the elite fear his electability enough to attempt to install Clinton as the opposition.

Even Mrs. Clinton, once made aware that she can only hope to beat Obama by being installed by the elite, my very well choose to bow out and join Obama as he attempts to defeat the elite.
I know Mrs. Clinton. She does not want to win in that manner. When she sees that is what is happening, you will see her withdraw and support the Obama/Kerry ticket fully.
End of Message.

Posted another message just prior to noquarterusa.net becoming a page not found website.
Curious to see what becomes of that...perhaps it was too close to the truth.

Sage advice to be taken...and given

This is mostly a "who am I" and "how does that relate to social media" post...

But before I begin in earnest, I'd like you to consider what you know about humans...mentally make a short list of commonalities, especially those that are the dearest to you, for example, breathing air, having the right to your own opinion and the ability to make choices for yourself in such a way as to enjoy the pursuit of happiness, etcetera.

Human beings are not dissimilar entities. We share more commonality than we do opposition. Keep this in mind as the worldwide population continues to expand. We must recognize, understand and value the differences and likenesses of each human. Each human, not each set of humans, but each and every single living human being.

Furthermore, most of you reading will already have an understanding of scientific experimentation and statistical data dissemination. Think about how trials and experiments are conducted. Pay particular attention to the scale of experimentation. In each instance, for any trial or experiment, sets (and often subsets) are selected. Randomization is typically preferred, but regardless, assumptions and findings are based on a scaled-down population that is, hopefully, representative of a larger group.

The users of social media are the randomized population selected to participate in learning how to function in an evolutionary environment where the ultimate outcome is to determine a course of action that allows for optimized survival. More on that at a later date...back to the "who am I..." I had promised.

I am Jesse Loop.
I'm an author, and will continue to be as long as I am able to write. I have multiple examples of my writing work online, in the form of blog posts, and comments on others' blogs. I tend to write mostly regarding issues humans face, politics, race, religion and other items of interest stemming from the advancement and evolution of life on planet Earth. Further, I write children's literature, poetry, lyrics and science fiction, but mostly those categories are for my own enjoyment, and not public consumption.

Unlike my editing and writing examples, much of my graphic design work, which I am quite proficient at, including layout with Quark, Publisher and Pagemaker, and creation with Illustrator, photoshop, and going way back, good old MSpaint, is not available online, but I do have hard copies. I can use either a mac or pc just as easily, but I have no experience with linux or ubuntu.

I can be found using twitter, often issuing sometimes controversial statements designed to encourage people to think for themselves. My tactics likely come across differently to different people. I even claim my tweets diverge from normal from time to time. My sense of literary genius comes from literature itself, a love of science and the advancement of the human condition, our collective environment and ever-evolving societal structure.

My background in both journalism and anthropology are useful to me as I have a distinct quest for knowledge regarding human behaviour, as well as the ability to document my findings. I have remarked, lightheartedly, that I have a Master’s degree in the discipline of thought process sciences. While the title is self-accredited, the experiences that have provided this education are many, diverse, and unique. I have a wide range of experience to draw upon, and attempt to use this knowledge for the benefit of other humans. However, I try not to take myself too seriously. I prefer to remain professional and purposeful even in the course of daily life.

I use two accounts on twitter, but primarily @jesatiu, as I have found that for my purposes, which are to demonstrate the ability to communicate logic and reason in demonstrably healthy and reasonably consistent manner, being myself is paramount. The other is a more personal account used mostly for communication with some of the more influential new media members of twitter. That one is simply @jesseloop.

I have been asked recently to attend NECC and to become involved with Quest Atlantis, and have been referred to Sasha Barab by two different mutual contacts. Apparently my twitter stream gives the impression that I am a knowledgeable and intellectual individual with the capacity to educate. Of course, that’s mostly by design. I do what I can.

If i make a direct and rigid claim or issue a directive I am often correct. In order to achieve this as often as possible I try to refrain from making claims and issuing directives based on feeling or assumption, but instead, choosing to make rigid claims only when I feel certain that fact is on my side. However, more times than not, I simply offer suggestion, and allow the receiver to judge for themselves whether my position carries merit or not. This approach allows me to remain humble as a humble person is rarely humiliated. I also try to look for situations where I am wrong, and admit my mistakes. This approach allows me to better myself as an individual.

I use the power of communication in order to facilitate my ultimate objective, which is to leave the world knowing I have contributed to humanity in such a way as to provide myself with a clear conscience. I firmly believe that God, or any other similarly Omnipotent or Almighty presence, will not judge me any more than I will judge myself.

My slogan, on that issue, is: “you’re going to pay for your own ride…” It’s very similar to the creed of most religions, “Do unto others as you’d have done unto you…”

While the purpose of this post is to educate you, as a part of the social media experiment, I feel as though my use of social media should be primarily relevant to education, in both directions, from me to others, and from others to me. I hope to be an educator at nearly every available opportunity. I also attempt to learn as much from my own writing as I can hope to convey to others, a trick learned from Dr. Isaac Asimov.

By the end of your research regarding me, and my online presence (see @techjen and @geekmommy blogs for reference to difference between “me,” and, “my online presence…”) you will know much more about me than I will know about you, but, in the vein of the parenthetically mentioned blogs, assumptions can be misleading. I can tell you, for example, that just this week alone, using the case of @jetblue as reference (business and education aren’t that far apart when it comes to social media), that the role of social networking in education is to eliminate, or at least to shed a positive light on, assumptions, as I’ve just done for you, regarding me.

CMC (computer mediated communication), as you are most likely aware of, especially given that I’ll assume you have knowledge of the Journal of CMC, based here at IU, presents trials and tribulations, and new media opportunities, representative of the need to further understand social networking, and, ultimately, societal structure, given that my claim that “humans are intrinsically inclined to participate in social behaviour,” is correct.

@jpostman; @chrisbrogan: Joel and Chris, both in the list of influential new media personalities, discuss the vital need for individuals, organizations and businesses to remain ethical and transparent in the growing new media environment. This issue is one that we see unfolding even as I type. The GM blogs are often referenced, as is the Dell presence, when discussing the proper way to use the blogosphere and new media to promote a healthy and morally sound link between a corporation and its customer base (both existing and prospective). Again, I believe education and business share a common link in the new media environment, and ultimately, that new media will provide solutions for the problems facing the larger human network.

Educating in this environment is a challenging, rewarding and worthwhile undertaking in that the contributions of education assist in the development of knowledge. Knowledge which is useful in understanding the evolutionary human process, and even questions like, “how do you use twitter?”

I’m hoping to impart to you my affinity for social networking and for CMC as it pertains to the societal structure, but, also, more importantly, and on task to this communication, that I understand social networking and its potential to serve education. Further, my communication, sales and management experience combine with my professionalism to qualify me as an educator, elder and participant of ongoing learning as I assume the roles I take in social media and in life.

Typically, in life, and in business, I take the stance that I can assist you, if you choose to allow me to do so.

total annihilation of normalcy

Regarding the comment left on my post, “It’s not right to put words into another’s campaign…”

I appreciate Dan's comments, and I can see, again, McCain's strengths, as listed, in theory, would carry much merit.

Again, what I take issue with in this sentiment (that of the author of the article from townhall.com), and what I think is missed in this discussion, is that the "change" Obama represents is, again, not change from some deviant "soul" of the American citizenry, etcetera, but change from politics as usual, especially in the case of deep ties to global corporate wants, as in the case of the Halliburton example. Which is to leave out "big oil" in general, which, is, probably a mistake on my part.

I'm not singling out Halliburton. Just one example in a long list.

I'm in fact, not saying that the corporation Halliburton is an evil entity, or does not have its place in business (others make this case but I think that the pros and cons of this corporation are irrelevant to the theme of my argument here), but that having government leadership that is so implicitly connected to, and therefore apt to influence by, such huge corporate pressures and desires, is not good for the American soul, or the American people (the "little" people, if you will).

Taken a step farther, I feel like we need change from the son of a CIA director and former president. The political leadership in America has become too closely netted with the military, the corporate agenda, the good-ole-boys…the status quo, the upper echelon…we need to have a democratically run anti-corporate funded political leadership or else we will rot from the head down.

Let’s say, for example, Obama doesn’t have enough…the word experience is used a lot, to imply connections, right? Ok, so Obama isn’t connected enough, let’s pretend. Let’s put aside all of his accomplishments and his background in Law and government, and pretend he’s not connected enough to have “experience.” So what happens.

Well, let’s assume something goes way wrong…let’s assume a hurricane takes out Washington D.C. Ok, bad times. Then, we get hit with a huge earthquake on the San Andreas and millions are dead and millions more are homeless, and then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, some guy the CIA trained, wronged, and left to go insane on us, takes a big stab at Chicago or Miami, or Atlanta, and knocks down a few buildings, killing tens of thousands more…ok, so…North, South, East and West, all within a few months of each other, hit with total annihilation of normalcy. So what happens? Obama gets help.

We all chip in and we help him, as our leader, by elect, and we deal and we make things as good as they can be. And guess what, it doesn’t have to be catastrophe, either. This same scenario works for a collapse in the stock market, a small-time terrorist attack, a huge spike in oil and economic mayhem. He gets help. We, the people, and all those congresspeople, mayors, governors, police, emt, 911 operators, factory workers, tow truck drivers, waitstaff, etcetera…

“We All” chip in, we bond together, doing our roles, just like in the case of 9/11, we make it right. We do it. Obama’s experience means little on these terms. I don’t have the experience to make a sandwich, when I’m four years old, but with the right guidance and help, I get it done. The same applies to Obama. I think it might be good for this country to have someone who doesn’t have enough experience. Make us all act a bit more responsibly for our roles, to make this country right, again. Bring on a reason for corporations to step up to the plate for the average American. Bring on a reason for hope and change. Bring it on, baby…let’s force ourselves to show what we are made of, and not that we need to rely on those who are tied-in, connected and “experienced,” to lead us around like the sheep we’ve become.

I think Obama supporters are saying it's time to give someone a chance who is more (I realize not entirely, but more so) disconnected. Time for change, not from a way of life or the greatness of the nation, or from a mythical deviant “soul,” but from good-ole-boy, insider mentality...McCain is simply too close to the same-old-same-old thing that is not working for the underserved in America.

Now, I'm not extremely political by nature. I only know just enough about republicans and democrats to be, typically, repulsed by them both. I also don't identify with libertarians, or independents, as I don't know, honestly, what it means to fit into those boxes.

Further, I don't fit into a religious box, either. I simply cannot be categorized in those terms.
So, therefore, all I know is that I can pick a candidate who, in my opinion, will serve the greatest good of the greatest number of people. In those terms, Obama is it, it seems like.

And again, in my opinion, four years of Obama is worth a try at that goal, and seems more likely to achieve that goal (the greatest good to the most needy), than four years of McCain.
I can't see, really, either way, total collapse in our system or our world, so, with that in mind, I personally feel Obama is, despite being perhaps a longshot, the best horse for the money.

Hope this clears things up, and I desperately appreciate the discourse-there is no way to reach a correct decision without discourse. You can quote me on that. Without discourse, without discussion, it's like searching a cellar at midnight for a black cat that isn't there (H.S. Thompson on theology).

Smart people making smart arguments will show, eventually, less smart people which one is the smartest argument. This is paramount to the system of democracy. Who was it that said, “without discourse there is no democracy,” well, I’m not sure, but I know he was of enough importance that a google search would probably tell you fairly quickly.

No matter what, just remember to vote your conscious. Not to vote with whoever is the most likely to have the best connections (experience) to the status quo.

It's not right to put words in someone else's campaign...

//unless they are mine//

Dear Staffers:



And feel free to use my response as your own in defense of this tragically misaligned sentiment regarding what the Senator stands for.
This article would imply the Senator thinks our nation is one of bad character, a nation whose "soul" needs changing.
I hardly doubt that is the case.
Isn't it more to the point that the current politics need changing, simply that the current roles of government need changing, simply that the current process of government, the current process of education, the current process of spending money, the current process of engineering, the current process of foreign relations, needs changing. NOT THAT THE PEOPLE of this GREAT LAND need changing.
Am i right?

Dan's words:

Here's a posting from www.townhall.com that discusses how Barack Obama can be beat. The central message is Obama's message of change and hope is, in reality, a message of pessimism in that the "soul" of America needs changing. Let me know what you think:

My response:
i think i'm running this article straight to the obama staffers so the preparations for the attack can begin. thanks.
you know...if it wasn't for obama, i'd [probably] be supporting mccain, so that said, we're not so far apart are we?

there is something i think is desperately wrong with the article though, and that is that Obama is not saying there is anything wrong with the country or its citizenry. He's not saying we have a poorly defined will, a malignant national "soul," or anything along those lines.
What he clearly stands for, what he brings us in his message of "change," is that he's not the Bush administration.
He's not Halliburton.
He's not the son of George Bush.
He's not controlled by Dick Cheney.
He's not...this current administration. He's change from this current administration.
Mccain won't beat Obama. He'll waste valuable money that he could spend giving to underserved.
America "allows" a black man to run for president and a black woman to go to school because we wanted change in the past. We still want it, it's what we need to REMAIN the best place on earth.

A powerful movement toward serving the underserved

February 23, 2008 <> Jesse Loop


Is divorce and annulment somehow considered emotional violence to a child? http://huneesoinsane.blogsp... about 16 hours ago reply

Response from twitter question regarding detailed notions of the psychological ramifications of divorce and annulment.

There’s some level of "trauma" for kids in separated homes. but stability is complex and can't be determined unless the whole picture is considered.

The human process in general is very complex, psychological functioning and health come from stability and love, and the stability of love.

The nurturing of any individual, despite having differing effects at different age levels, is best achieved through a system of support and complementation.

Consider complementation as a form of the verb “complement,” meaning "mutually supplying each other's lack."

Other definitions exist, meaning to provide, 1, a: an expression of esteem, respect, affection, or admiration; especially : an admiring remark.

b: formal and respectful recognition : honor

2, plural : best wishes : regards

If these definitions are applied to the development of a child by its influencing peer and “support” group, and the natural process of nurture, we can see that not only the health of the child(ren) is affected, but that the nurturing process also offers a reciprocal role to the health and well-being of the adult(s) involved. To complement one another in health and wellness; in other words.

When we utilize this manner of approach, the mutual benefit to the child and the parent creates the ideal scenario of psychologically healthy individuals stemming from psychologically healthy individual interaction. This interaction is optimal, and actions, such as divorce, create influential emotional (and physical in some cases) reactions which can, and will, to varied extents, inflict harm.

Reaching from harm to violence is, again, a scaled situation (a spectrum) where the levels of the entire process are complicated, or has complications, due to the nature of its very complexity.

The judgment factor involved in determinations of levels of harm or, conversely, levels of…we’ll use “health,” (to represent the opposite of harm) is paramount, and should be made by a networked support group of professionally trained mentors and advocates.

This network of mentors and advocates would be, ideally, in a perfect world, provided as an intrinsic social service.

Unfortunately, this idyllic and perfect world cannot exist, as it would, as outlined above, require intrusions into the rights of privacy. Any world, having intrusion into the rights of privacy, will not meet the requisite requirements of a “perfect world.”

Finally, let us not, however, be dissuaded by the fact that divorce, for example, is going to have adverse effects on our overarching definition of “health.”

There is a silver lining.

This silver lining comes from the fact that while a bad thing won’t be made a good thing, simply by the good that comes of a bad thing, good will come of all things, even bad things.

It may be difficult to recognize, but in some respects, in some regards, and in some kind of way, whether apparent or not on the surface and in the moment, it will exist.

In sum, “that which does not kill us, only makes us stronger.”

We have recently been reviewing journalistic reflections published in the mainstream mass media that involved violence towards children, or perpetrated by children or young adults.






These reflections, if you will, underscore the need for social justice, equality and a powerful movement toward serving the underserved.

Warning. newest post ratings: FRE=24.02; FK=16.72. It is deep stuff. viewable online at: http://docs.google.com/View?docid=dc2prqgc_26hm6mm7f4 - use logical decription.

Folks...i appreciate your donations...I really do...I have donated five times this week. I have only donated 2.00 each time, but guess what? That's the beauty in mass marketing that is the internet...you do not have to feel bad for donating 1.00, 2.00 or 3.00 dollars...any small amount is sufficient and WILL ADD UP!!! Please, Keep It Up! and thanks...

ok and here is the link for the "too many twinkies" post...

so follow it and read it-it's a decent article, really...as are all my articles (shameless self plug in the hopes of sponsoring discourse)...
and this here post is a way for you to comment on the "twinkies defense" article...

Also, share your stories of the twinkies defense as you remember it...i'm foggy on how it really goes...but I know it does exist...I mean, I remember the story the press gave, but I'm hoping someone out there knows some "new" and juicy tidbits about it and will share them, and share how they relate to the Vagina Monologue thing in April in the Big Easy, and the mission to deconstruct race, religion and gender as mythological creations based in the nutured sociology of our times...

Should I have Mavis Staples, Touch a hand, make a friend autostart on my blog?

Decided NO to autostarting media on blog. 4-0 even with the one that isn't anythin' to do with the subject of the query, and falsifying data, but not to a point that it was still uninimity...(aka unanimously)...

mindofandre @jesatiu auto start = no no from twhirl in reply to jesatiu

GeekMommy @jesatiu - aren't you sweet? I'm the Evil Queen tho... I've even got several coffee mugs to prove it! ;) from web in reply to jesatiu

TheRainKing @jesatiu autostart bad, very bad! :) from web in reply to jesatiu

artywah @jesatiu any media that autostarts is bad bad bad from Snitter in reply to jesatiu

In further news... @jesatiu decidely unites community to revoke and repeal, disavow and correct. @theunited holds the key to process and record. Documents available upon request.

Asimovian template secured...process near completion...

We have allowed science to be used for “bad,” Asimov traced this first “bad” use back to 1915, with the introduction of chemical poisoning warfare. However, it could be an even worse misuse of science to continue to allow it to be “not used” to debunk sour and segregating conspiracies derived from collective social knowledge, or at least the collective social knowledge that sours and segregates, and subjugates, unjustly, based on such factors as race, gender, religion and political process.

Purposeful introduction to inspiration. The knowledge of writers as a sub-group, facing categorization-al tendency. A group often attributed with attributes of similarity. Writer’s block; alcoholism; depression. Etc.

Many parallels into the world of media and the “dumbing down” of the American general public can be drawn that might relate Asimov to the main character of Good night, and Good Luck. Edward R. Murrow surely felt and voiced similar concerns in his own work. It was a time period both men shared. They shared the view that humanity closed its collective eye to the destructive force of McCarthy-ist patriotism. They were aware of the general state of propagandized education and entertainment which was a literal part of the era. The saw truth between the lines of misinformation, and misinformation for what it was.

"God," or something like It...

an email recap: the Crème de la Crème of Ernie Pyle Hall...

It would be a pleasure...if my week straightens out any, God, or something like It (watch out! tangent coming!), I, again like Asimov, am more realist than atheist, and am not really atheist, at least I don't believe I am...

Yet, I've such reservation regarding direct association with the all-to-common blasphemy spewed by scores of contemporary "Christians," that I prefer to dissassociate with even the term "God," these days, much less the culture of right wing fascism "He" seems to have spawned lately...why zealots have to ruin something as spectacular and notable as Divinity I'll never understand...it's a damn good thing I'm a nondenominational evangelist or else, because if I had to choose one religion over the other these days it would be very hard to convince myself that Christianity is viable in light of what I've seen from too many "Christians" lately...and those that do not feel they belong in my category, but believe themselves to be Christian, ought step up and do something about the rest of "their" people out there who are likely to damn the entire world if left unchecked.

I recently said, in a discussion of foreign policy, that, at this point, I'm not so worried about the fascists overseas (Iran, notably) that might build Nuclear weapons, as I am with the fascists that already have Nuclear weapons (the USA under a right wing zealot, notably). Listen, I'm fine with a strong military and protection from invasion and the use of force if absolutely necessary-I'm just not fine with the measure of absolute currently in use, and I can hardly imagine the absolute sense that would justify the global damage to my home, and my children's home, that is a Nuclear blast, not to mention the ethical and moral ramifications of the...fallout...of the use of Nuclear weaponry.

Anyway, "God" willing I'd love a chance to partake of coffee or tea and chat-always a pleasure to converse and discourse with a peer. If time does permit I'll email again...I've always regarded you with great admiration as you have shown an honorable sense of commitment to education...and journalism...By the way, what ever became of the striking "other AI" from Evans' class...she was remarkable on many levels...haven't seen her around lately...just musing, it's of little consequence, really...but yes, her company was always a pleasure...and why am I so bad with names? Sheez.

And I don't mean to barrage you with banter (careful! soapbox warning!), but I do want to quickly recommend to you Donald T. Philips' book, Martin Luther King, Jr. On Leadership for relevance in association with the Katrina aftermath, today's "challenging times," and Dr. Mackie-an intersection exists to the political and social challenges facing the country in this time, a time of a most important election...vote, and vote Obama, being the final thought. You see, Katrina underscores the need for quality leadership like hardly anything else I can think of...unless of course, the economy, foreign policy and human rights come into the mix...geez...it's grotesque what this administration has done to our world...sigh.

Anyway, as always, bestest wishes in these trying times my friend,

"Intriguing. I’ve watched several of Obama’s speeches on YouTube - the incredible part is how popular his videos are. Most political videos don’t get many views, but Obama’s videos - wow."
From twitter stream of a twitter user whose page I cannot access now...attribution incomplete but that's the gist of it...

The rest of this is reposted from various sources, in addition to my writing...it is recommended to visit the link, read the post, then click on the "back" button of your browser to read the response. This way you will get to read two authors for the price of one...and become more informed and smarter, and hopefully, inspired.

I read a blog on myspace-and then responded to it:

You know, I almost deleted you from my friend list the other day. I was nearly ready to completely stop using myspace because it had caused me to feel like i was involved in drama. Strangely enough, I have myspace to keep in touch with my family (CA and AZ) which, really, since i'm bad about writing to them, all it does is make me feel closer to them, so therefore, because I want to feel closer to them, I didn't take down my site. But those are the people I actually communicate with less than anyone else. Seems like I end up more with the random people I know from...well...however it is we connect with random people.
I did totally change the site and the way I use it, though. But, the internet is a part of my life and I, like you, blog about life, although, I sometimes use real life to write fiction, and the other way around, too. But mostly, most of the things I write, like this note, are just part of the life I have going right now.
I'm really glad now that I have read your blog and think I'm starting to see more of how you present yourself that I did not delete you (wasn't just I was going to delete, either, I'm not aiming this at you in that way, I was about to clear off a bunch of people that I felt I wouldn't have much in common with...just goes to show you don't know what you have in common with someone until you really take the time to try to understand them).
Suddenly you post this blog and I realize how much we have in common. I noticed that you are very passionate about life. Also that you are a really good writer, you use words well even when you're writing something, so to speak, right off the top of your head. These things are written way different than something like a business letter or something you write and review and write and review, etc...it's more train of thought, which is the writing I like the best-my own as well as that of others. Also, also, you are taking a look at yourself and thinking deeply about who you are and who you want to be. This is something very special in my book. Lately I've been looking deeply at myself and what it is I really want to be, how I want to act, and who I want to associate with. I've been trying to focus on the things that will help me, when I look back, you know...don't stop doing that. Personal growth adds to the health of the spirit; the healthier the spirit the better the condition of the mind, and the better the condition of the mind, the better the quality of the mortal life...it gets deep...but anyway.
Another "also" is that today I was just thinking of - how could she. You see, my daughter's mother has, it seems like to me, completely forgotten the bond a parent should have with their child. The whole story is rather long-but I'll share it with you sometime...perhaps.
The short part is, once we split up I had to track my kid down and go and get her from a relative of her mother's where she'd been basically abandoned. I had wanted custody, but she won.
I couldn't do it-couldn't go to the court and tell them she was not going to be a good parent because of her addictions...I could have, I could have "won" in court-but I would have had to publicly shown my child's mother as a monster, and I wasn't down with what that might make my child think of me in the long run...I knew from day one she was mine, and she changed my life, and I knew I was going to be there for her whether she was dragged back to LA or not...I didn't need to win, I tried to win in court just on the fact that I would be a better caregiver, but being male, that's not enough. To win in court, as a man, you have to show the woman is totally worthless-imagine how that would go over with your kid when/if they ever found out? It's was a really tough choice at the time.
So she won, then took our kid 2400 miles away and left her for three months with an aunt. I got a call, saying, hey, can you come get your kid...I was there the next day. A year went by, no word from "mom" so I held a quiet hearing, and without any fanfare, finally got full custody. So it worked out, she's lived with me ever since, and since then, I've never received one dime of child support. My kid's mom has hardly ever sent a letter, or card, or anything...there've been a few things...but nothing substantial and nothing regular. The last email was months ago, even. Really, in the last 12 years, she's only had very minimal contact with her mom. I think it's sad. But it is the way it is, and my daughter (anyone we both know will back me up on this) is a superb person.
You can do this, even if he cuts out totally, it happens, it is sad, it is a shame, it is totally irresponsible, but even if it happens, you'll be ok and your kids will be ok. You are all they need to become the independant, smart, bold, strong and productive people you want them to be. Trust me, your writing shows I'm right, as long as you remain an optimist.
Sorry to go on and on like this on your blog, but I am not really all that private of a person because I believe "our" (collectively) stories will help others-I like seeing you share your life so that I can share mine so that others who are out there who need to read it can, when they need to.
See, this is how I think life works. Things happen to us as we need them to happen to us.
Some people say I'm just an optimist, but I think it's deeper than that. First, if a person isn't an optimist then they might as well just give up, and second, life is a complex thing that has purpose that is beyond what humans can comprehend-all we can do is try to understand what we can understand...some call it God, you know, but there are so many people out there using God for so many wrong things that it makes it hard for me to publicly attach to their concepts of "God." In other words, I'll call it IT, you know, but not God, because if I call it God, someone will see me as though I'm going along with the same people who show huge signs of dead, bloody fetuses to kids in passing cars, or punish young adults with guilt and scripture (misused) to drive a message of fear and shame, and I won't be a part of that-at all, so those people have ruined the word "God," but they have not, nor can they ever, ruin the spirit of a great spirit. Do you know what the word "spirit" means, really? Think about it...there is no way to really describe what a "spirit" is-because it is, by definition, everything we can't understand, basically. It's "all that," so to speak, that we can't know while we are mortal spirits-we can try to learn it, and try to see it, and we can get an idea of what it is, but to really KNOW spirit, not going to happen (although reading up on really smart folks who can teach us about it is fascinating, I think...another story, there though).
We can understand the greatness of it, we can comprehend how amazing something we can't really understand is, but we can't really know what it is. I'm beginning to repeat myself but I think to really explain something this complicated takes a bit of repeating. To say it correctly, and in a way that is clear, when talking about something that can't be explained...well, it's hard to do as you'd imagine it would be.
So listen, if you start getting down and needing a little bit of extra support you can call me, or call one of your friends, or pray, or meditate, or see a therapist, or...whatever...
OR- you can just reread what someone I met randomly once wrote, "though it won't be easy and there will be times I want to give up, we will succeed!" That should do it.
Keep your chin up, kid.

And also did the same on TeresaCentric™:
jesse Your comment is awaiting moderation. January 31st, 2008 6:56 pm

Yes! I’m so glad to see you promoting my personal soapbox of the day. Thank you.You see, I can’t understand why we, as citizens, want and expect our elected officials to work together while they are in office, yet we aren’t willing to do the same, or so it seems…Whenever something important happens in D.C. and you hear, “both sides of the isle are on board here, etc” blah blah, but you know what I’m talking about….we are happy and we say, “see how great it is when we work together…”Then, here comes an election and WTH happens? Bickering, fighting, spewing…ok, I mean, I understand the two party system, this is going to be inherent, but still…as citizens, doesn’t it seem like we can, especially in the age of web 2.0, figure out a common ground and say, hey, here we are, let’s work together to get the best person in office, then work together to make the world the best world it can be…equality and justice are the themes, right?

Perhaps I’m just too optimistic and too naive, but I think that what I am, rather, is visionary and that what we need is to get the message out that it will be ok to work together and basically, take it four years at a time….Sure…it is a message of hope, sure it’s just me going off about what I see as best for the people of the world, but isn’t that also what the world wants? Who wants a world full of death and war and crime and drug abuse Inot use, abuse, two separate issues) and poverty and all of that…? Huh? who are they? Are they going to speak up? NO.

Who are the extremists? Who are those that would prefer “theirs” only, as opposed to ours? The most likely candidates are facist zealots…and where do they tend to lie, demographically? Please those of you in the middle, and on the middle right…give four years a chance. Do not let the chance that a zealot or facist will lead this “free world” for another four years…eight years has been long enough…contact me via my blog or twitter.com/jesatiu for questions, comments and discourse.

I was about 20 and living in LA...

this story is just written off-hand so as to kinda honor an online friend of mine who has been being very patient with someone and just waiting it out, seeing how it goes...you know, O how she just digs this dude and gets all "school-girl" when she knows she's gonna get to hang with him and stuff, like, basically she's uh...proving me wrong on the myspace.com/jesatiu blog where I state nobody has any passion on myspace anymore...she does...she's living with passion and you all know how I feel about that (read Fire and Passion blog on myspace.com/jesatiu re: Calvin Mackie if you need to brush up on it)...we need to be getting serious about what our passions are and what will happen if we continue having the wrong kind of passion and being passionate about the wrong things...but that's my soapbox and this is just a story...so read on...

I'd been there working and doing good for a few years, about three...and i worked with McCaffrey construction, who had projects all around the east side of palmdale...so as it turns out, the basic place to eat lunch on the east side of palmdale (visualize raw desert everywhere except where we were building houses) turned out to be "carol's cafe." (The original one, the second shop in Littlerock opened right after I met Wanda.)
Well, this waitress Wanda worked there. And she was a flirt and good at her job and didn't talk a lot about herself but it was known that she was with this guy and all, for a long time they'd been together, his name was Bobby, he'd later come after me with a knife and a crow bar once in her driveway but that was way on down the road from the days of Carol's Cafe on the corner of Hwy 138 and, I think it's Avenue "P."
So long story short I mean, Wanda and I were about the same age and she was attractive so naturally we did kinda hit it off, and of course, being young and single, especially until I heard about Bobby, I was pretty much hitting on her daily, whenever we'd go for lunch at Carol's.
Well time went by and Carol opened up the shop in Littlerock, which is where I lived at the time...and Carol had three very attractive daughters, who all lived in Littlerock and worked at least now and then at the Cafe...basically I'm just saying, it had a culture, you know...lot of regulars (many Lockheed and Edwards AFB employees live in Littlerock, but it's very small and you know...just a little town)...so anyway, I started hangin' out there a lot, worked on the side on Carol's rental properties and there were several other regulars, kinda like a combo between a ragged-friends/Cheers type of deal...
So Littlerock is full of many regulars, or perhaps irregulars, and many of them had abuse problems from an over-abundance of meth and rock coke, but we managed everyone fairly well...
My one friend who had kids my age who worked with my mom at the liquor store lived right across the street from Carol's too...and it's been in a couple movies...I don't remember the titles, back then movie sets in our area didn't really surprise us much...I just remember a few times when we'd get our coffee or iced tea moved for a shoot...
So after several years of hitting on Wanda to the point of where I really honestly thought it was just a game that we played (a year or so of this time I was dating Lissette Pelley from England, a nanny living on a work permit, whew, those trips to immigration in LA are something, let me tell you, sorry, that's another story)...
Where was I...yeah...so this one night, I really remember it too, I am going on about taking Wanda to a movie, I mean, hell, I didn't even know if she was actually listening, I was pretty much talking to the guy on at the counter next to me, really...it was so much of a joke by then, that everyone knew it was just our "thing" that we did...like...I don't know...just teasing between old friends...
So yeah...I say, ok...something like, "ok, Wanda and I will be back in a couple hours, we're going to see...so and so movie...and uh...hey Gerry, you're in charge while we're out, we'll be back to close up," haha, you know...
And i walk outside, getting something from my truck or about to leave or something...and here comes Wanda out the door behind me..."ok, let's go."
Huh? yeah...I was like..."what?"
She was saying...you know...Bobby's an ass (which he really was, everyone knew he treated her like total crap) and so ok...like...I finally won something I didn't even know I was playing for...
So over the next few weeks we ran around together and stuff...and had a fairly good time, but she couldn't quite let him go (it go, really) and we were in her house that one time when he came by all strung out and it almost got pretty severe but we both lunged at each other a few times and he realized despite his knife and crowbar (which he took out of her Toyota, a black Celica, but was mine) and was like...you know how crazy people get-she's mine and I found your crowbar and I'm keeping it and blah blah...so I was like, she's not your dog and she'll do what she wants and your an asshole, etc...and left before I got killed, basically...
Well...I guess the point is, oh, and yeah, Wanda, last time I was in LA, was seeing a guy with a kid and they were totally cool and looking like a great couple, so good for her...wonder where she is now...huh, that's a first in a long time...wow.
And Lissette, too...once she went back to England it was like she fell off the earth...wild girl there...man...but good person.
So I guess that moral is...again...well...patience? perhaps...not giving up? kinda...but not really...um...just...you never can tell what life will send your way whenever it wants to...and was it, "worth waiting for?" Well, sure...I mean, look at the story it makes...Wasn't what I thought it would be, of course, but it was and is a story of a girl, who did cry a river of tears, but also figured out a move for herself that worked in the long run...(two song references there...).
So that's the story of Wanda-circa my days as a Dj and carpenter in LA county.

dedicated to knowing what we don't know...

In response to the fabulously informative new media found at:


I have a blog entry written for today: (Also posted as a comment on the aforementioned blog.)

Therein lies a tremendous amount of energy and misplaced hatred, irrational behaviours, and utter indecency...wherein? In the affairs of the fate of humans. No person, man or woman, can be in the interior of any other singular and sole human. To pretend to be able to "put one in another's shoes" is merely too present oneself as a foolish antagonist.
However, to find compassion and likeness and comparative spirit with other humans is to reveal the true nature of the intention of the human object, as well as the nature of the human objective.
How ridiculous our differences of cultural manifesto will seem one day when, in years from now, others realize just how intricately attached to our nurturing we were. How pale and narrow. The thoughts and rituals we spread and bestowed from one to one another, so childishly simple and lame. Like the donkey that only knows of its death, and only living for death, it gives nothing to its kind, and in return, nothing to it is reciprocated. It fears the loss of its existence so much so that it is its own demise.
Be forewarned, fellows, when we disallow the natural order of person, taking it from one person so as to place it within the boundaries of another person, we settle into a realm of misconstrued waste. When, in retrospect, we see ourselves as we are truly meant to be seen, we realize just how important it is for us to refrain from such behaviour, as to misconstrue and waste the spiritual well being and destiny of another. Meddle, meddle, and toil will ye, unto troubles of certain.
Spare free of spirit and tide thy neighboring brother and sister and being with comforts of hope, and cherish thee, and plentiful will ye find the health of thy own spirit.
Live life awake, aware and alive- and remember, simplicity of three-live life free.

Natalie, you are an angel among us, for gifted with the scribe of truth and the decency of the unknown, you've seen the truth behind the...not lies (at least not wholly), but, rather, untruths.
You have begun the journey that breaks down centuries old demise, and opens new horizons for the advancement of the species. With the wisdom of knowledge unknown, you've set forward a quest. There is no way to reach this end, for it isn't a place or a time, it is an occurrence. There is, though, an expressly viable way to be this end…or rather, this…occurrence.
Graciously, your avant-guard is that you are avant-guard...a guardian in faith of the species. An artist in the art of proper and purposeful survival, whose purpose and dedication is ”active in the invention and application of new techniques in a given field...”
The techniques are as you’ve set them out above, and the field is the nature of human progression. All too often we think of ourselves as near an end. These thoughts are formed from a stem, derived from our mortality, in as much as we perceive our own life. This thought pattern is one which is not altogether cohesive with our relation to actuality.
You see, in reality, we exist before and after our birth and life, in whatever forms we care to take, of which I can specify but will not, for brevity’s sake. And in such terms, we find, with the knowledge hereto discussed, that we find very many of our fellow spirits choosing to meddle into the affairs of the perception of life which is solely a perception of life that they have been predeterminately disposed to forming by their own cultural nurturing. Shortly, we can say, it is not a life that is lost, in reality, as that life is a life regardless of our perceiving that life as being similar to our own sense of what a life is.
Now, this is all very well discussed and such, as to where if taken statement by statement and claim by claim, it would suffice to uphold its own merit. What it does, in those terms, then, is to answer the question of how a person who is a certain “kind” of person can decide to act as though that person were a person of a different “kind.” When really, that person is the same as the others, once they realize how similar they are to the aforementioned person (you, in this example). What we can also accomplish, by seeing your example followed, and by utilizing the virtues of compassion and hope, as opposed to those non-virtuous actions, such as depicting embryonic destruction, using guilt, shame and fear as icons of a fight that includes nastiness and ridicule as a tortuous form of motivation to conform to the meddling of another two spirits, is love. Thank you for the forum. Readers: please, donate or contact me for ways to help.

at warp speed-learn from past, live in future.

I can repost someone’s blog that will completely relate two of my most recent posts together. How cool…and connected…
I will redirect you to both comments I’ve authored lately which combine with my twitter stream (which are, admittedly, loaded with support as I’ve just openly adopted Obama as my choice for president) to be my entry for Jan. 24 and Jan 25, 2008.
I’d already written in response to the
payment for services and new media on a businessweek site, and also in regard to the direction a social network site needs to consider.
Both of these topics are introduced in the following excerpt: Please read this excerpt and then visit both links to review my comments, and please, donate before you go, thank you. ---------------------------

From: http://eloquation.com/

Twitter doesn’t charge individuals for sending or receiving messages. In order to provide global messaging, Twitter negotiates with mobile operators and their representatives around the world for reasonable SMS fees. We do this so that folks can use Twitter in as many countries as possible. Until agreements are in place, however, we need to put in limits on the number of messages received per person. -twitter staff

The problem with that message is the first sentence: if Twitter doesn’t charge individuals for sending or receiving messages, maybe it should. I’d recommend keeping the 250 message limit for free users, and letting heavy SMS users pay a monthly fee for all the extra messages they will be sending and receiving over the month. Sounds simple to me.

I’d probably pay a bit extra for some uptime assurances as well — we all know Twitter has the reputation for being a bit finicky at times.

I will pay for what I use

The conclusion is simple: if I’m getting value out of a product or service, I’m more likely to support that same product or service financially. And I’m not the only one.

Again, I think what we see here is the trend to need to realize demonstrable desire and want, and attach a valid currency-so easy to discuss…please, comment…and please, if able, terraverse-writ for world needs your donations…we have our own desires and directions - and those of you who’ve donated, thank you immensely…----------------------

tap into the singing of complete heart whispers...

tag: social media adventures unlimited by Controlled content listing limits.

"tap into the social media revolution..." (courtesy socialmedia.com)

Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. ~Plato (courtesy Christine Taylor)

This notation is based on the following site reference:
This comes to me from the http://www.socialmedia.com/ homepage, accessed through the list of the latest companies working under the funding and direction of softvc, http://www.softtechvc.com/index.html

Perspective on web2.0 excitement...where does it belong?

I've been asking around and trying to keep perspective on the excitement around web2.0, yet replies are not coming in terribly quickly as of yet. Perhaps expanding my following and followers is of utmost importance. UPDATE: I did expand my following to include nearly 2k twitterers. I have had several follow back, to them: a collective "thanks, you."
There was a drawback to expanding my following in this manner, which was, basically, done with reckless abandon. The downside, as it turns out, is that I needed to make a separate twitter ID to use to update my family and close friends...the amount of uupdates alone on the @jesatiu account, as well as what some people say, just makes it necessary to have a "personal" as well as a "business" twitter account (rather, a research account-better term than business).

I realize to have the jesseloop.blogspot.com site down for this interim period isn't the most exciting part of my day, but i do think that in terms of a long-term project, where the mix of photojournalism and social connectivity arrive, there will be sunnier days ahead. UPDATE: blog is back up and publicly viewable-still no way to accept donations but I promise to get to that very soon...UPDATE update: PAYPAL functional! what this means is that you can now send me a couple dollars, even just one or two bucks each, or even thousands, if you are the kind of person able and willing to do so, and become a sponsor of my writing (again, it's not so much my writing I'm trying to push, but what I'd do with your donations).
I really look forward to comments and if possible, enough revenue to allow me to actually make this a decent blog-as for now there will be no charge for any of the content-it will all be publically viewable, it's just that now you can donate to this cause-because...
If you do donate-you can do so annonymously, of course, but, I would prefer if you did so publically and added comments regarding why you chose to fund terraverse-writ for the world. I'm very interested in your share of this adventure. If you donate non-annonymously I will provide you with a certificate that will act as a share in the revenue stream-if we can get it to the point where I have time and resources to go public. I know how to do it-mechanically, the SEC, Secretary of State, etc...I know the rules-and guidelines, I just need the financial ability to spend the time to do it...

My patience with bringing content, Controlled content, to individuals of the earth is warranted by the sheer need for connectivity and purpose.

When I begin to think it's not going to work, I must remember the motto:

I feel the from "between the ears and behind the eyes" (Thank you to Christine Taylor, fellow/friend/twitter-er at: http://twitter.com/mousewords.)

I would also like to thank Christine Taylor for putting up the headline quote from Plato. It is this sort of transitional knowledge that is the fodder jesseloop.blogspot.com's Controlled content lives on; life depends on it. The impression of impressionistic peoples, who make an impression. You know, of all the Controlled content writers, I think my writing is the worst. It is at best, the most unusual and, if you take the time to consider it, either fabulously inferior or superbly lame. I suppose it could be just the opposite, as well, but then, that woud be all backwards. Unless you turned it around...hehe...now, which way was up, again?


In addition to having posted a wonderful snippet of inspirational, albeit trinitar-ilianly centric, sentiment on the fabulousness of the empire we humans have described as the universe. Her exquisite writing and choice words help to begin to capture the sensationalism of the night sky. http://mousewords.wordpress.com/2008/01/13/night-of-stars/ is a truly wonderful piece. Christine Taylor should be writing for terraverse@gmail.com. This is exactly the sort of Controlled content we want to offer.

The reason for Controlled content is not to keep it solitary and off the path of the common user, but instead to open the doors of mouth-to-mouth, or in today's age, web2.0-to-web2.0 user-to-user communication. I think of having a way for a donor to share their access with anyone that isn't able to donate but wants to read anyway. It will be a sponsorship solution...details still in my head but...it'll come.

Despite the differences we all have in our personal way of looking at things, in our understanding of our place in time and space, and in the way that we view the internal and the external, we must see the benefit to Controlled content.

It will allow us to not only find the worth and the value in what has many, many drawbacks, but it will allow us to share the worth and value with those who need it the most.

"We can shape this world, if you would only show us how...your life is now..." -Mellencamp.

I view and you view. The way we view is editorialized by the way we think. Great philosophy, education and human development are intrinsic to the editorialization of each human. The disparity among each human is like swimming across the pond for coffee. You just wouldn't do it, if you could do it another way, would you?


Demonstrative of how one person can involve the right person? We'll challenge the associations of association in further posts. I do expect resistance, however, I will not let it push against me, I am undaunted in my approach to doing things my way. However, whenever I deem it necessary, I'd really like to find few good guymens (add post on version of Gaimen's last name, attrib to night with Chaundra (sp?) and Antoiné).

I can see confusion regarding the outcome of this occurance. Ok, that's not a lot unlike the rest of life, sure, however, in this case, a lot of life for the upper crust (including myself) could possibly be affected by the confusion.
It is the effect on ourselves we should concern ourselves with.

Both Vince and Tamar say so much in their posts. It would be silly to argue with them. That said, I'm a fan of silliness, but still just can't muster an argument. Alas, perhaps Bank of America will soon control both-what could go wrong? I actually figured out a way to get Bofa's VP to contact me, too...all I had to do was quit paying my e-bill. Reminds me, I need to write her back.

A year since this occurance will pass soon, and where do we stand today? I think I'll go reseach it, on google, of course.
After that, I think I'll write a book on my research and sell it, on ebay, of course. You can buy it, too...through... :) (Insert google chechout or ebay/paypal here, of course.) Controlled content.
