dear james,

how thoughtful of you to write me. i feel as if we know each other already, what with you calling me 'partner' and all. have you spent time in texas? i think you'd fit in. they like people with lots of money there and they're not particular about how it's earned.

i am sorry to hear that you have a "health condition". i too have a health condition, but it's "good". if your health condition is "not good", i'd suggest you settle somewhere other than the united states. people who are not in good health don't fare so well there, unless they're rich.

by the way, does your health condition affect your vision? i ask, because you say that your account is worth twenty million u.s. dollars, but on closer inspection, it reads "20.000,000". i realise that sometimes banks and currency experts use more than the standard two decimal points in order to be exact, but it's always the placement of the decimal proximate to the first digit that is important. your account is actually worth $20.

i know that in some countries, $20usd is still a significant sum, but since you indicate that there is some risk to you in moving the money, it's possible that it may be safer for you to leave it where it is. i have no doubt that an experienced businessman such as yourself would be able to raise another $20 somehow.

however, if you are determined to get your money back, i have a better proposal to make: on this blog page, there is a button where you can make a donation. i suggest you transfer the money via this means, through paypal. after all, if you do have $20 million and sent it to my bank account, you would have no guarantee that i would transfer your seventy percent once i'd received it. this way, if you don't receive my transfer, you would be able to file a paypal grievance against me. although i appreciate the trust you show me, i think that this is a better solution, in order to avoid the appearance of any impropriety. i'll await notification of your transfer.

thank you for writing to me "partner", i look forward to doing this business together.

yours in utmost sincerity.

p.s. :: i'm surprised that your bank is questioning your principles. surely that's none of their business?

p.p.s. :: given news reports of gaddafi's vast wealth, i'm afraid that he might have been screwing you a bit on your business dealings if you ended up with $20. what business were you in, exactly? just curious.

imperfect ten

whatever you've heard about the democratic contenders' debate that happened thursday, i would hereby like to tell you to ignore it and, if you have the time, go and watch as much of it as you can [stand]. the biggest story coming out of the debate should really be the appalling talking points that the mainstream media have latched onto, especially the ten-second battle between julian castro and joe biden over healthcare. that literally might have been the least consequential thing that happened all night and i'm including the ad breaks.

ten candidates is still too many a lot but this is the first time that we've had the heaviest hitters all hitting each other. at the same time, they also took somewhat stronger shots at donald trump than they had before [some more than others]. the debate was a full three hours but, unlike the cnn debates where i spent the last half hour or so throwing money at my television in a desperate bid to bribe the moderators to wrap it up quic…

worldwide wednesdays :: peace and prosperity through... socialism?

every year an organization called the institute for economics and peace produce a highly regarded report that rates 163 countries on their relative level of peacefulness: the global peace index. i happened across an online post about this year's report that made me do a double-take. although i'm a frequent critic of the united states, i am aware that they are one of the most developed countries in the world; nearly all americans of all are functionally literate, most have access to healthcare, most have access to potable water, freedom of speech is enshrined in the constitution, etc. many, many countries can't boast these things. so imagine my shock when i saw in the summary of the report that the united states ranked 118th of 163 countries. i couldn't imagine how that was true and, indeed, it was wrong.

they rank 128th.

how the hell is it possible that the united states is less peaceful than countries like honduras [consistently one of the most violent places in the …

dj kali & mr. dna @ casa del popolo post-punk night

last night was a blast! a big thank you to dj tyg for letting us guest star on her monthly night, because we had a great time. my set was a little more reminiscent of the sets that i used to do at katacombes [i.e., less prone to strange meanderings than what you normally hear at the caustic lounge]. i actually invited someone to the night with the promise "don't worry, it'll be normal". which also gives you an idea of what to expect at the caustic lounge. behold my marketing genius.

mr. dna started off putting the "punk" into the night [which i think technically means i was responsible for the post, which doesn't sound quite so exciting]. i'd say that he definitely had the edge in the bouncy energy department.

many thanks to those who stopped in throughout the night to share in the tunes, the booze and the remarkably tasty nachos and a special thank you to the ska boss who stuck it out until the end of the night and gave our weary bones a ride home…
