"HAPPY DAYS"



Opening shot is not "Twilight" English actor Robert Pattinson
looking at his vampire mother.  This is a female actress who is
part of Morrissey's Everyday Sunday video located on a British
beach resort.



The female driver is Billie Whitelaw who I saw at The Old Vic
in Beckett's "Happy Days" in 1970's London.  (Before Happy
Days of American TV).  The girl in the video just happens to
turn on the TV to a beach scene.  The stunning Ms. Whitelaw
died in 2014.  A very close simulacra to a post 911 former
girlfriend of mine?  Or just my imagination.

"Well I thought that the most dreadful thing that could happen to anybody, would be 
not to be allowed to sleep so that just as you’re dropping off there’d be a ‘Dong’ and 
you’d have to keep awake...Samuel Beckett in preparation for writing Happy Days. 

Back To "Reality":
On my last day at work in 2005 a 6' 4" black on the fat side co-
worker made a point of always preaching and telling me what I
would find among so-called "daytime people."  Slackers, stoners,
hipsters, unemployed, students, or, like me, retired.  Slackers,
hipsters and stoners aren't adequate terms for what I found.  I
looked at the world and the world looked back.  (Ack, ack, ack)

It's as if I had the extreme audacity to retire after working seventy hour weeks at two
jobs for twenty years with nothing but time and age to show for it.  I went from
70 hour work weeks to zero.

My attempt in describing completely unnerving, "peripheral" human++ types sounds
straight out of a horror movie or something from a demented central casting call for Marvel
unitards.  I would say straight out of Comedy Central because that is exactly what this sounds
like.  Except the above two plus marks after the word human are completely applicable but
I'm not sure what they equal.

USEFUL AND UNUSEFUL CONTEXT:
Everything described in this blog does and doesn't originate in any particular time or country.
Manifesting in the 1960's - 1980's in the following ways: I had no idea at the time but
"new age" groups like Macrobiotics, Bioenergetics, Sri Chinmoy, Bubba Free John,
Integral Yoga and many other so-called alternative eastern and western groups were
completely serious as far as their stated intentions and completely rigged.

By who?  Not the FBI who were probably there reporting to J. Edgar and his successor
on what might have been considered to be potential subversive foreign infiltration.
The groups themselves didn't care and probably got a bunch of laughs over who the
designated G-Man was.

These alt groups had excellent PR depending on the image they wanted projected.
I never followed Franklin "Adi Da" Jones' " and bad-boy reported orgies which
were likely faked or contrived for the sake of rumor.  Or relatively conservative East-
Indian mediation teachers seemingly following unwritten scripts of prescribing celebracy
until, one after the other, getting "caught" seducing female followers.  One was described
as preforming mechanically, in/ out laughably animatronic seemingly getting nothing out
of it.  IOW, asexual, as if doing a job.  Were these deliberately self-provoked falls from
"enlightened grace" a karmic offset to being objects of worship and fame?  Deliberately
arranged and welcomed fake PR both positive and negative?  Of course they were.

IMO, many people, Catholic religious leader, Marcial Maciel Dellogado, famous politicians,
actor Mel Gibson manufactured deliberate public humiliation under the guise of sex, mental
illness, substance abuse or all three.  Right after he, Gibson, makes a billion dollars
depicting the Crucifixion of Christ a series of incidents are blamed on alcohol, "the Joos"
or a bipolar condition.  Was he actually DWI?  Yes.  Involved with porn actresses?  Most
likely yes.  All real and all faked and it doesn't really matter in his case.  Public disgrace is
considered a badge of honor and something to actually strive for in some religious quarters.
Like his for instance.  Like the Catholic Church for instance.  He just happens to be
fundamentalist Catholic.  Which goes back to my impressions of the movie "Spotlight"
depicting the older defrocked priest.  He was a willing human drone doing a job and
getting nothing out of it.  For what real purpose?  The purpose that operates across time.
