hi five years ago karisa

hi tony

what brings you here to the busblog?

just wondering wtf youre doing?

what for ever do you mean?

um, no archives, just todays posts, sorta crappy attitude, etc etc

aint no etc younger karisa

so whats going on, midlife crisis?

first off im 101 so if you think im gonna last till 202 then god bless you, no wonder youre one of my best friends.

im one of your best friends because, in part, this amazing blog of yours

get out

no really, so why are you effing with it? the busblog is one of the more perfect things on earth. happy earth day fyi

ive always effed with it, so to speak. btw do you kiss your mother with that mouth?

pot kettle, black…

racist, anyways ive always experimented with blogging and this blog and consider this an experiment. no archives. posts just for that day then they disappear.

will they ever reappear?

do you believe in magic, five years ago karisa?

of course tony pierce

then maybe they will. but dont hold yr breath.

are you excited about coachella, tony?

every day excites me karisa, especially with you around. thats why we should enjoy each day and never look back.

you realize youre saying that to a five year ago me

the symbolism is damn near malkovichian

today is earth day

aka give it up for nature day aka shit we’re doing it wrong day

when i was a kid all we ever had to worry about was give a hoot dont pollute. seriously littering was the roughest thing we had to deal with.

there werent any recycling bins. there werent nutritional labels on everything on earth. kids didnt have to wear bicycle helmets to ride their dumb bikes. no one was allergic to peanuts. you just walked around, did your thing, and threw your shit in the trash.

now it looks like something inbetween then and now f’ed the earth – hardcore.

there are three types of people in regard to all of this. the people who give a crap, the people who seriously dont give a crap, and the people who give a crap but dont really do anything about it.

personally i think we’re all doomed. the earth is a living thing and i think its gonna kill us before we kill it. and since its way bigger than us i have a feeling that it knows exactly how to kill us and is quite content with doing just that.

and i believe we deserve it.

when it comes to the earth we’re just bigtime users. we stick our things into it and pump away and suck everything out. we blow up and chip away at mountains. we create mines. and then we shit all over it and spew crap into the air.

meanwhile we outlaw perfectly good plants. we kill as many animals as we can. we even spray crap all over our crops to ace all the bugs.

if you were the earth wouldnt you earthquake and warm up and hurricane our asses too?

maybe because i believe in heaven i dont worry too much about the future. i dont worry too much about my kids or grandkids or my neice and nephew not being able to climb trees or play war in the tree forest like i was able to as a lad. mostly cuz i think you get to do that in heaven if you want.

maybe because i believe in karma i dont worry too much about strangers never being able to wade in perfectly warm waters of aruba or maui or san felipe. and maybe becuase im a spoiled brat i dont worry too much about the class of 2050 being able to listen to the waves crash outside their dorm room at night at ucsb.

but it would be nice for the kids to have very little cares like i did.

cuz it was nice.

too bad the earth is going to implode on itself any minute so as to protect itself.
