If it's done right... not faked.

But almost every single time black and white images beat the living snot out of color images for depth of emotion and mystery and mood and just plain artistry.

You should not be.

Just in case you were wondering, it is raining so hard today that I am now officially unafraid of the Chetco Bar Fire reviving itself to burn me down. I mean, maybe there are roots burning and turning into those coals that restart fires years later, but I don't even think my hovel will remain habitable that long.

Anyway, it's very wet rain. No kidding kind of rain. And I can hear the surf roaring.
COASTAL DEL NORTE-NORTHERN HUMBOLDT COAST-SOUTHWESTERN HUMBOLDT-
MENDOCINO COAST-

NORTHWEST FACING BEACHES.

* IMPACTS...LARGE BREAKING WAVES ALONG THE COAST WILL LEAD TO
INCREASED WAVE RUN-UP ON BEACHES WITH WAVES TOPPING AND

So I hope it's only the experts out there surfing in it... or maybe, for once, foregoing the thrill altogether and staying warm and dry inside.

Oh, and I used the old infallible hairspray method to kill a fly today. That's another way I know the rainy season is here. Whenever it gets real, rain-wise, a fly or two will come up seemingly out of my plumbing to great the day and piss me off. Today's fly decided it was most convenient to crawl around on my monitor. So.

Knowing the drill, I simply picked up my tiny little spritzer of hairspray for when my bangs get too long and blasted him with it. Yes, yes, that means I blasted my monitor with him, but, fuck it.

It immediately incapacitates them and you put them out of their misery immediately and then just clean the hairspray off the monitor. It beats them tracking their filth all over everything in your house and trying to fly up your nostril or crawl into one of your ears.

Yes, yes, I'm not a critter killer — in general — don't do it for drill. Only flies outside. Human inside. Spiders likewise. Pestilence and vermin have the whole rest of the world, and for fucksure they'd nail my ass if I went and made myself at home in their spaces.

And brains, but the real perk here is when you are addicted and either can't get your prescription or can't pay for it anymore. Then you switch over to something much cheaper and at least as effective: The Real Thing, and then The Real Government gets ALL the profits.

In fact, there's every reason to suppose he joined as a mole and he just wants to retire. It's all horse shit, any way you want to look at it.

I don't think he ever has. What? This has to be at least the tenth time I've caught him just coming out with it, like, duh, of course, and nobody ever turns a hair.

That fiend will do anything to make his Open to Looting Societies Foundation topple every government on earth. They want a planet with a very small human population, serfs, just enough to keep their castles and mansions staffed in perpetuity, and insure certain necessaries are not endangered, a verdant paradise of Earth restored and everything on it for their benefit only. George Soros wants an impregnable and infinite feudalism for the final glorification of psychopathy.

You want to horrify everyone for Halloween? Go as George Soros.

I think I'm mostly tired and that monster cold I warded off some days ago is asking for permission to come aboard. I'm going to sleep and if it's still asking in the morning, I'm going back to nuking that fucker with immune enhancing vitamins and nutrients. Life is plenty hard enough already.
