December 19, 2007Roby is a "Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster" in human form. Only a bit more floral in the spring.
December 14, 2006Roby is the coolest cow in town.
That being said, he's also one of the most intelligent people, with the finest sense of humor that you'll encounter in this crazy social network.
I love watching him interview new people. He has a way of sandblasting through bullshit that sometimes people don't realize they're being subjected to. Much to the amusement of those watching.
Oh great... what if he's been using it on me?
March 27, 2006Semper wields insight like an insurrectionist with a pick axe. His intelligence is based on diligent exercise and self-examination of his thought process, which he proves by dancing circles around those who thought simply being born smart was enough. His mental calisthenics, however, have also produced a wry sense of humor and a natural compassion for those he takes into his inner circle.
Semper will question you. He will make you think. He will offer adventures you'd be foolish not to accept. He'll be there, cackling like a madman when things are good, and he won't disappear when life deals you a knockout punch to the jaw.
November 8, 2005Roby is my brother despite the fact our parents weren’t intelligent enough to give us the same genes. No one else in this world knows more about me except for the women I’ve truly loved. He inspires me to educate myself and explore my mind. His desire to experience is simultaneously awesome and freighting; this duality pushes me to go further than I would comfortably allow myself otherwise. He is one of the few people with whom I would trust my life should the need arise because—and I can’t say this emphatically enough—if we were at the beach then we wouldn’t have to be metal plated.

I used to say that the only thing I could say that would be true in five minutes is that I thought this would be true five minutes ago... now I'm not even sure about that.

Anything that goes from being an exciting new frontier to an irritating pain in the ass is probably a thing that can be done away with, circumstances providing.
Email or message me if you need me or want me to know something. I'll probably continue to jot down my thoughts and ideas on Facebook until I get motivated to blog again some place else.
Take care everyone. See you someplace else.

The trick will be to keep taking steps without attracting the worm.
Until today I was under the impression that Rhines was just out of the city for a little while, and that he'd be back in November, or was already back and just too busy to get ahold of me. I found out today that he isn't coming back, and is instead moving out of state.Mon, December 15, 2008 - 5:26 PM permalink - 0 comments
I don't know if other people who are friends with him also thought it was just a matter of time until he was back from his travels, but apparently the situation has changed, so if anyone wants to get ahold of him or stay in ... read more
Theirs is the discourse of sovereign judgment, of stable subjectivity legislated by "good" sense, of rocklike identity, "universal" truth, and (white male) justice.

and with the requirements of the established order."
Haven't been writing much lately.
It's a nice change, but it always leaves me sort of sad. I use my writing to myself, oddly enough, as a means to stay in touch with other people. Stop writing, fall out of touch. Fall out of touch, fall into my head. Fall into my head... need to eventually get totally out of my head ... read more
