but one book i loved was Vurt about some crazy ass shhh over in London and one of the parts is about taxi cabs
i think if uber ever goes out of business or the supreme court says it’s unconstitutional i’ll just be a cabbie
anyway in Vurt the author Jeff Noon, just randomly throws out this idea of all the cabbies
being plugged into the vibe of the city and annoying dudes get into my car, loud, in groups
well dressed, ragging on each other playfully and somewhat mean-ish
and they ask me where the partys at and i tell them hollywood but they wanna stay downtown
and its like, dude, im plugged in, i know where the partys at, and the after party
but even when i show them that pizza is one two three blocks away they dont tip me after i waited for them
way too long.
so you know maybe its ok that theyre in dtla at a bar where no girls ever are
been drinking enough anyways.
one thing Vurt tells you though: trust the system, it will bring you the rider you need at the right moment
picked up a guy who was friends with the psychic to the stars but he never divulges who his customers are
because hes professional, g, and that would be breaking confidentiality.
but we figured it out. some of them at least.
bro was saying how psycics dreamhouse cost $10 million.
if a million dollar house’s mortgage is $4,000 a month, which is insane, then a ten million dollar crib
is $40k – every month. for a house. doesnt anyone watch cosmos? dont you know we are a speck in the solar system
and our solar system is a speck in the galaxy? and our galaxy is just one of millions
and not only does none of it matter, but your house matters the least
unless its oozing with love.
ive picked up the prettiest people from some of the coolest homes who have some of the ugliest hearts.
the entire spectrum rolls in LA.
and then some folks pop out of these average looking apartments or street corners or bars
and you can tell their houses overflow with love
because theyve got some smeared on their collar hold still
and their energy is contagious and never ending
but not everyones totally bad. none of us are.
speeding down skid row with the business suits, one of them said something mean about the homeless on 6th street
and, god bless em, another one of the guys spoke up saying, thats not cool man.
and the dude tried to follow it up with another lame line
and the guy repeated again, thats not even cool. shut up.
someone realized those are actual people are living in boxes and little tents and cardboard shacks
not even four blocks from money money money things things things
all these buildings are going up in DTLA, one of them will be the tallest west of chicago
for people who already have homes.
this is probably the only speck in the galaxy that builds houses next door to homeless people
and wont build a few extra stories so they can live in them too.
we were born for magic.
and oozing love.
but we get so distracted.
sorry, i get so
