Wait, I loved the Time Traveler's Wife. Was Alsonso saying it was bad?

If "Utopia" means "Nowhere" then its just like "Nirvana" which means the transcendent, "It neither is or is not." The logical mind cannot handle that statement. And for good reason. It's transcendent, finally, of reason itself. Beyond thought. If you cannot accept that there is something beyond thought, then you are stuck in a place that has no mystery, no magic, and you will never get out.

Nexdoor now adopted by one in four neighborhoods in the US.
It was early in the morning when the flooding hit The Knolls, a neighborhood of about 500 homes in Columbus, Ohio. The sewer overflowed, dumping a foot and half of water into Chuck Totten’s...

This is awesome! I should have flown to the west coast for this tour. Overall, I didn't think it would be an energetic tour. I especially didn't think he would do this song. But man! He absolutely kills! It really comes across in the video too, the energy. Great performance. Wish you'd taped the whole thing! Only not in vertical! :-) Love the foot tambourine.

+Stephen Pickering Before he played the song he said how the critics in Spain did not care for his spanish songs. So at the end he said "See the Spanish didn't like that song. F them I am moving to SF " lol 
I know exactly what you mean by taking lessons, his pre choruses are usually great and unique. I'm sure I probably just asked if you know another song I was loving at the time. Now I can play "I will live on Islands" "Valencia" and "His Majesty Rides" but I plan to learn more.

The answer to Leo's question at 6:04 is that, and this is the real story, mobile bandwidth has grown some 100x since the days of Qik. Mobile bandwidth, as a way around the chokhold of the regulation, and false monopolies on the landline side, is the big story.

He just said "the Corrupt nature of people in the world." That is exactly the opposite statement of Mythology in general, and its child the Fairy Tale. To Nature people are not corrupt. Society, systems are corrupt. Not nature herself. Nature has no holidays, no systems! Nature just is!

Very good statemente and reply. Yes, I agree it's all ego projection. But I still believe it's nature within us. There are forces within us we can't control as there are in nature. The Archetype of the Trickster is a good examplo.

I see what's wrong here. As much as I was enraptured with his storytelling, at the end of the day he like the New Yorker said "Is a Marxist" which means he only believes in this reality and somehow making it better. I'll admit, that's a valid argument. There is no "objective" validation of a transcendent reality. I've never had a "mystic" experience itself, although I do believe I've felt something close to it, maybe just for microseconds, at certain moments. Certainly during meditation. But at the end of the day, and I'm certainly not immune to this, I've got ot pay my bills like the next guy, if you don't  believe in some kind of transcendence, in another words, "Another World", I don't see you engaging the world of Myth and Fairy tale properly.

Workers are their own bosses in the so-called sharing economy, but that flexibility also brings much uncertainty — and few of the protections of full-time work.

Ayahuasca has fans among those who value its power to produce personal insights through hallucinations.
