A Meeting ミーティング

I had a meeting this weekend.

We met at a bar on Saturday night.

The topics were rather broard, but somehow intertwined.

First, we talked about dysfunctional individualism and depressing collectivism.

Then we talked about the ratio of an certain kind of people throughout history, and if the ratio of the people could be changed by the better connectivity provided today.

While we talked, people were busily moveing around and stumbling at the bar. I saw a black-haired woman who had puked in the booth she was sitting at. And I saw her dozy facial expression.

Then we shifted to the topic to how a person could be carried away and change over time. And how subtle that change starts. Then about how one becomes less and less naive as one goes through one’s life. And what that means to be less naive.

Despite the matter of fact people were always drunk there, this night was a bizarre night. The way people got drunk was slightly different and somehow bizarre to my eyes.

And that strangeness could come from outside or inside of us. It is a reflection of inside or outside. But this night, it was because of something inside me. Something was changing inside me. And people were not kind.

Weather Channel 天気予報

Hey, do you wanna start a weather channel?

It will be the easiest thing because we don’t have to make shows.
Weather is always there.

Maybe we’ll do some fun stuffs when we are on TV.

Maybe we should drink beer or something when we are reporting really sunny weather.

You know? it’ll put people in a good mood. Who cares about scientific explanation of weather? Some Americans don’t believe in science anyway. Especially fat ones.

I actually don’t know which demographics don’t believe in science besides Christians, so never mind, whatever whatever.

Hurricane? Harricane will be a big time. It will be like Superbowl for us. Yeah. We gonna report it. We gonna dive into the river and rescue poor kids and ducks and stuffs. Maybe we can hire our neighbors too.

Are you in? are you in?

Conversations About Nothing 1 意味のない会話 一

“What if three of us try to make money? We are not going to give a shit about anything but money.”

“How are we gonna do that?”

“What are we gonna sell?”

“…We can sell intelligence?”

“We certainly look pretty smart.”

“Ill just talk very smart and intelligent, and people gonna be like ‘can I just pay you?'”

“Yes you can.”

“If we fail and end up being poor, we can start playing soccer on the street.”

“And play music.”

“And make art.”

“And post high quality blogs.”

“Or maybe Ill just go to developing countries to do volunteer works to help little kids there while manipulate them, and tell them to get on my website when they are older.”

“That’s messed up.”

“I heard a lecture about a history of leisure. Apparently people during the industrialization was stoked about their free time. There were so many more varieties of leisure compare to before the industrialization because people had more money and time.”


“Yeah, they had to work only 14 hours a day instead of 16 hours a day.”

“That’s shitty.”

“Well, I gotta get going. I’m gonna go see a pop band. have you checked out their song called ‘fuck you?'”

“Nope. But sounds like they might save the pop music.”
