I love this Bukowski Poem.

I will start one of my vignettes one day with the similar riff of " I was born into this ..." which is slightly different than his. Guy was a definite  genius haven't read his stuff in quite a while though as it can become repetitive..

I hate to put it like this but humans are mammals.

Doesn't mean there might not be some divine intervention in there but definitely smart mammals.

Some good movement in semi moribund heavy weight division.

On Saturday 8.27.2011 we had some good movement in the Heavy Weight division, in a Heavy Weight double header we had Robert Helenius knocking out tough but out gunned Sergiy Liakhovich.
The other fight involved Alexander Povetkin, defeating a former champion Ruslan Chagev for a majority decision.
The good thing about this for the Heavy Weight division is that both Povetkin and Helenius have lots of room to improve. With Helenius probably having the potential to become a very accomplished champion.

Contradictions. Always Contradictions.

You can’t have a Central Bank that picks the winners and losers in an economy and have a “Free Market”.


Now that maybe a good thing because a real free market may not be what we are after.

Boxing As An Art Form.

Boxing is an art form.
Sometimes during the course of a fight you get a peak into a fighters soul.
At this point the fight fan becomes almost voyeuristic, This event of seeing into the fighters soul lets the fan  see into their own soul.
All art is really like this.

In women, art, music, politics I usually follow my own path. The same as in the way I follow boxing.
 I don't always buy into the hype that the mainstream is spoon feeding me.
I look forward to the heavy weight double header coming up on August 27, 2011. Robert Helenius vs. Sergei Liakhovich,  and Alexander Povetkin vs. Ruslan Chagaev.
This fight isn’t being served up to the American fans in an easily accessible format but should make for a great night of fighting.

The World Island

According to Halford Mackinder , the godfather of modern Geo Politics , who ever controls the world island controls the world.
The "World Island" being the Eurasian landmass, with about 60-70% of the worlds productive capacity on it.

Random Notes:

The whole debt ceiling S+P downgrade thing is just too depressing to go into right now, although I have some definite thoughts on the whole situation.
Kelly Pavlik my favorite Boxer is going through some personal issues and just abruptly pulled out of a fight he was supposed to participate in this past Saturday August 6, 2011.
I finished studying the Python Scripting language for 3 hours today. What I learned and how it is applied we will see, but I am at least doing the leg work.

Hunter Gatherer vs Post Industrial Revolution.

I some times think that humans evolutionary state is one of hunter gatherer , living in a post industrial world.
I think it is difficult for humans psyche to live in a fast paced stressful world, of strange confining work schedules.
A world of artificial rhythms, disconnected from our hunter gatherer past.
As we chase currency instead of wild game to feed ourselves.
