Maybe, but I'd bet Bret's better at guitar than you are. Challenge him, if you think you can win.

Make bacon roses and wild waterfall hair. Make new connections in your brain. Create art and do the dances of flowers and birds. Plant seeds, grow flowers or weeds. Make art on the bodies of friends. Oh hells add some glitter to those nips. Heal things and make rips in the fabric of hate.

Grow healing thoughts.

Some deeply-held thoughts make us ill or at least create the preconditions for disease and psychological problems.

One form of healing works to replace habitual destructive thinking with habitual constructive thinking through the use of affirmations--"seed thoughts"--that are repeated with such intensity that they become regular, recurring programs playing in the unconscious.

Think of the old record player when the needle gets stuck in a groove. The groove gets deeper with each pass of the needle. The same applies to our thoughts. If we are grooving on happy things, those things will be planted deeper...

Our culture's lack of appreciation for the power of the imagination is staggering. We can continue to inundate ourselves with images of violence, manipulative fantasy, and sheer weirdness, because our culture believes that the imagination is private, powerless, and basically irrelevant.

Healers hold the imagination in great respect, trace many problems to its abuse, and often use the power of the imagination to heal.

If the images we hold about ourselves and the world are so powerful, what would be better than to study our culture's images of itself? And what better place to start than with the images in media?

Ponder the influence of images and how advertisements make use of powerful images, symbols, role models, and affirmation-like phrases. Such exercises can help people free themselves from being manipulated by big government, big pharma, morally corrupt corporations, and the war machine. Make the power of the imagination available for more constructive uses.


There is a small, vibrant movement for the re-enchantment of the world, whose adherents are trying to restore the belief that certain kinds of art can heal and unify us. Myths play a prominent role in this school of thought--myths as stories that make us whole and give our lives meaning, stories that give us images powerful enough to express what we are feeling in the present.

Meditations with music would be a simple way to bring deeper levels of thought into our melon heads.

I made bacon roses for my ex girlfriend. Her panties virtually melted off. It was a total last minute idea. I haven't been able to top a valentines day since. I peaked romantically in 2011.

Go smoke some weed and eat your flowers.

OK I will!

Bean blossoms have a sweet, beany flavor. Nasturtiums have a wonderfully peppery flavor similar to watercress and their pickled buds can be substituted for more expensive capers. Borage tastes like cucumber, and miniature pansies (Johny-Jump-Ups) have a mild wintergreen taste.

Violets, roses and lavender lend a sweet flavor to salads or desserts. Bright yellow calendulas are an economic alternative to expensive saffron, though not quite as pungent. Other flowers may have a spicy or peppermint flavor.

Thanks. Just thanks a lot. I've been on 4ch for almost 6 hours and I can't take one more minute. Zimmerman walks and I couldn't care less. I'll look for some OC shortly.

Bacon is life but that hippie vibe killed it. Go smoke some weed and eat your flowers.

Those bacon roses remind me of something else I saw on here ... some sort of bacon/turtle burger things? Was it you who posted those?

You had me at bacon roses.

Indeed these ARE weenies wrapped in bacon and they do look nasty. I did not eat the damn things. I was impressed that the man who made them bought silk roses and pulled the rose blossoms off so he could use the stems for his weenie arrangement...

Listen to Jim Morrison below, then read Roadsong's post as if he were doing it. Feel the kindred beat... peace.

LOL. Trust me, the Buddhists will not want to take ownership of oathmeal. Dickheads need not apply. And it still won't help you make any friends.

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

I must admit I did not make the bacon roses. They were at a party I attended. I did however, take the photo!

bacon roses are amazing.

I've figured out the boy's punishment. First, he's grounded. No
leaving the house, not even for school. Second, no eggnog. In fact,
no nog, period. And third, absolutely no stealing for three months.
