it’s one of those days…

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

when there is nothing to complain about. Nothing. The sum of all affairs genuinely equates to “good”. And there are certain indications that it might improve even further. Serously – just look about yourself. It’s all so precious! Now pile it up high and get out – today’s Puff’n’sip is on!

Today’s, September 29, 2010 Puff’n’sip will commence @ 

5:21 PM @ Sens, 4 Embarcadero Center (@ Justin Herman Plaza)

and meander

@ 7:17 PM to Cigar Bar & Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lotsa love,

Big Red.

what’s in the word?

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

It started with a pleasant warm feeling that comes from a sun beam breaking through the summer skies, color and density of a Siberian yak, and hitting you straight between the shoulder blades. Niiiiice!… Warm grew into tingly and euphoric, familiar to anyone who had to live through this summer. When clouds came back, it felt so unexpected and sharp, that I expressed my feelings out loud. “Oh, how much I feel a “deep, enduring, intense emotion expressing animosity, anger, and hostility towards” those clouds!” – I exclaimed. “Them are fighting words! You ougtha be careful what you say” – piped in Super-Ego. “Calm down, really – just a word!..” – Ego was quick to reply, but a sad whimper from Id made him think. Something didn’t feel right to Id and anxiety spread to Ego like a wildfire in Russia. Words are many and different, words make up books and sometimes websites, people read books and sometimes websites, people trust words, not so sure about websites. People who burn other people’s books, burn their trust and generate “a type of pain that is due to an external cause” that often results in “a desire for the annihilation of an object that is incurable by time”. Not a very good use of words, and who needs that?

What we need is more of  them cute kittens videos, taco trucks, and – you got it! – Puff’n’sip!

in or out?

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

It’s a much more common yet complex dilemma than it might appear at first. I’ll leave it up to you to come up with a convincing example, and let’s just go with – I am right – on this one. But besides the obvious belly button issue, the one I am concern with is a matter of inspiration.  Do you reach in? Reach out? And where does it go when it’s not here? I can imagine it being a communal property, similar to the ZipCar model, but a lot less reliable, no insurance, and you buy your own gas. That would explain why there isn’t enough for all of us. But even so, could one farm and pickle it away for the rainy day when fresh stuff is not as available. And would a plastic bag with a label on it – with, potentially, a strict warning or an explicit threat –be enough for it to survive through lunch?.. I wonder sometimes,  if I were to sit down under the tree — assuming the type of a tree makes a difference – could I come up with a better packaging for light bulbs or learn the meaning of all suffering as orange? What I am tryig to say is that, I don’t have it. But luckily, Puff’n'sip is on!

Today’s, September 1, 2010  Puff’n'sip will venture @

5:11 PM to  Sapphire, 475 Sacramento (@ Battery)
