Insanely Stupid Quotes:
Who told 4,000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers to stay home that day? Why did Ariel Sharon stay away?
- Amiri Baraka
The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
The purpose of Insanely Witty Stupidity is to showcase creativity (and its many flaws). I am Michael Atkins-- an imperfect human who creates thoughtful (and usually *devious*) art. In my experience, the majority of modern people do not understand or appreciate the artistic craft. My homemade portrayals of reality have always been criticized by thoughtless cowards who fear a glance into the mirror. And the more the world has aged, the more critical (fearful) people have become. And, the more desperate they have attempted to bury the truth-- we are all just primitive lifeforms with a poor understanding of reality and very little power over our own lives. But, there is nothing to fear-- only a universe full of knowledge to discover.
The acquisition of knowledge begins with the acceptance of nature and truth. In my opinion, the art of entertainment inspires action by exploring our own nature. And, it's what ignites my desire to uncover the mysteries of the universe. Without a clear understanding of myself and what I am, how can I be motivated to understand the vastness of our oscillating plasma (what you probably call "outer space")? By nature, I have always been a creative person. Unfortunately, I've spent the majority of my life battling mindless buffoons who are convinced I must be a logical dick-head who recites answers to math problems no one is trying to solve. And yeah, I'm a hacker (and free software advocate) as well. But, I'm a brutally honest and primitive craftsman more than anything (a modern "mad scientist"). ;)
Insanely Witty Stupidity disparages the use of restrictive "patents" that make it difficult for human beings to develop (or "improve") art and technology. Now personally, I'm all *for* capitalism. I think it would be a good idea. However, the world we live in is regulated by the people who came before us. And, those people have taken it upon themselves to be the sole proprieters of various "services". And, they believe it is their lawful right to provide those services exclusively-- and restrict the rest of us from profiting in the same way.
And in a world like that, capitalism simply is not possible. A different type of economic system already governs our world-- socialism. Until those powerful forces are thwarted (mainly remnants of the so called "baby boomer" generation), we are all doomed to continue this venomous cycle. The content of Insanely Witty Stupidity is offered without charge (although donations are certainly appreciated!) and with the understanding that others may wish to "borrow" its ideas for their own purposes (motivating "honest" licensing of its various projects).
The art of Insanely Witty Stupidity includes ongoing book series (Case's Cases and Hailey's Follies), short stories or "novella" (L.I.N. & Chuck), unusual software (like the Candice project), homemade circuit designs (and assembly code for powering them), weird art projects, and more (see links above). The time I would prefer to spend maintaining the site is (unfortunately) wasted delivering useless products nobody wants or needs so I can afford to buy-- well, exactly that. And, I am left unable to give my projects the attention they deserve. But, I will continue to chip away at them as long as the ruling elite allows. Updates about my hopeless ventures are discussed pretty regularly in the Witty News column. And, changes are documented in the website's changelog.
