The Wisdom of the Lorax Strikes Back!!!

[based on The Lorax by Dr Seuss, this is fan-fiction]

“I hoped that the Lorax would tell me the secret of the Truffula Tree.” – a whisper that has waited for the Lorax Part Three!!!

Lorax Kin

The Lorax, the Mytak, the Menoo,

The Larkar, the Dundar, the Spagoo;

these were the spirits of the trees

they could come and go from tiny cells as they please

towers of cells serve them well

near where the last of the truffula trees fell

on the ‘Street of the Lifted Lorax’,

around the Onceler’s house full of cracks

 

I stood on the stone platform ‘Unless’

and lowered my head for the Lorax to bless

but the Lorax shook his mustache “no, no”

I asked “Will you tell me the wisdom you know?”

“I speak for the trees, of you they are pleased.

For taking a chance with the seed that you seized.

You knew what to do

and you did it too!

To fight evils of hate and greed,

the most we can do is plant a weed.

Our words were hopes one would do what you could,

and you did what you did as we hoped that one would.

Tell others of the stories we weave,

tell them they have been told at least once,

and then leave.”

 

We now know the secret, yes we do!

When you tell others, tell them who:

The Lorax, the Mytak, the Menoo,

The Larkar, the Dundar, the Spagoo,

the Onceler, the towns-people, myself and you!

Lorax 2: The Return of the Dryods

THE LORAX IS BACK!!!

“We wanted to know what the Lorax would do, we wanted to know what the Lorax knew too!!”  – One of which happens in the LORAX Part TWO!!!

20160613_144542

Once the Lorax vanished from sight,

The Onceler was left in his poisonous blight,

but he gave a seed to a lad

who grew a tree and was glad

He let out a call to proclaim he was proud,

so loud that the Lorax heard it high up on a cloud.

The clarion call was heard by Dryods one and all!

 

So the little furry fellows came down

Some were red, some were orange, and one was brown.

They told the boy “We are here to protect the last hope!”

With their colorful voices they asked for twigs and rope.

Magic of clover helped get seeds from all over

The people created a garden owned by none,

and protected it for the future of everyone.

 

A forest grew too, just like new!

The barba-loots came back in their barba-loot suits

and also again came the fish and the birds

all due to actions from a very few words.

 

The Lorax retired under a hill of trees

and you can visit him there for tea, if you please.

Talk It Out: Conversation As Art

Posted in Interviews, POB Audio, Psychology, Society Clubs or Social Groups, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on July 23, 2019 by Drogo

Join us as we search for meaningful conversation, that may or may not be pleasant or comfortable. Will we know what we are talking about the whole time? Find out! [SHOW LINK]

in a busy world of working for less and less pay, at jobs that would rather replace you than let you take time off, communication has largely been reduced to texting loved ones and ignoring customers who are forced to deal with machines. is there a natural need to have meaningful conversation, or should those of us who prefer to spend a certain amount of time talking all be therapists or long-distance sex workers??

use caution when listening – we are not trained conversational professionals. any opinions we have are to be considered hear-say or entertainment for legal purposes. We are also not paid to compete against commercial level production, so just sit back and relax, or move on to something else, because it is not worth getting upset about. i agree with experts on somethings about talking, but not everything they say is true for everyone, they give general guides for awareness. Speak the way that is best for you, and silence is ok too sometimes, when communication fails.

Conversation as Science – According to experts

Communication Construction and Deconstruction

Signs & Symbols, Language Families & Standard Rules

When we talk about language rule standards: grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, Dictionary definitions, Semiology (signs and symbols), and Semantics (semiotic meanings), etc. that could be a transition into word order and how we read the way we prefer to talk, leading into artistic self expression and times we want to mimic others, which leads into artistic styles and interpretation of communication, and self expression, specifically conversation as art.

*

Julien Treasure – HAIL: Honest, true; Authentic, real; Integrity, responsible; Love, wishing well.

Sugar or honey with honesty is nice. Don’t: gossip, judge, complain, blame, lie, exaggerate, or have flaws (unless joking or there are real problems).

 

Celeste Headlee – weather and health are not enough. How to talk and have meaningful conversation even with people we disagree with deeply.

  1. Focus on talk, until out of it, be present.
  2. Be open to learning, or at least respectful in responses.
  3. Open ended questions?
  4. Let most things go.
  5. It is ok to say you dont know everything.
  6. Some personalities like to have comparative sympathy, while others think it is too competitive to compare experience values. (i edited)
  7. Dont brag (too much) and Dont repeat (too much)
  8. Details dont (always) matter.
  9. Try to balance (if possible) time talking vs listening (for equality).
  10. Be brief, but interested. (people are busy, but sometimes want more time with someone that can help them, in a time of need)

 

Ted talks – General guide options, not true for all.

 

Brene’ Brown – power of vulnerability, empathy

 

Marc Pachter – interview as art, meaning in life. Energy is more important than intellect. Story worth sharing. Modesty wastes time, you have to think it is worth some value to tell your story. Competing for attention can lead to arguing, not discussing, unless it is fun for everyone. Wrestle for the key to unlock story.

 

Sherry Turkle – connected but alone? Conversation has depth (emotion, language, sound) of communication that no amount of texting connection can adapt to.

Communication Deconstruction

Signs & Symbols, Language Families & Standard Rules

When we talk about language rule standards: grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, Dictionary definitions, Semiology (signs and symbols), and Semantics (semiotic meanings), etc. this is the science of communication. The word order and how we ‘read the way we prefer to talk’, based on cultural factors are how we interpret what laws should be. 

From common slang greetings that are not properly correct, to a feeling of fake formal presentation vs real country folk authentic accents; opinions are relative. Rules give general guides, and rebels will break the rules their way.  But not everyone wants to conform to all the rules, in the liberal vs literalist dichotomy. Between mixed families and dialects there is language evolution. Artistic self expression, group styles, and regional markers are as valid as any rules.

There are times we want to mimic others, not to ‘make fun of’ to insult, but to match and sympathize with their way. Individual styles and interpretation of communication, are integral for conversation as art. Art can be harmonious, but also chaotic. I agree with experts on some talking points, to have common language ground, and reference points for discussion about what is important to talk about. It is nice to know how and why to be polite, but also be able to show honest emotions and desires. Speak the way that is best for you, and silence is ok too sometimes, when communication fails. Some people are mute and prefer silence, that is ok too.

 

This is the art of conversation.

We call to each other from afar,

Approaching we talk of weather and feather

And we come close to whisper in our ears

To say or not to say, or how shall we say it?

Is this the art of conversation?

SNU – Scod News Updates

Total News Satire, SNU is Social Commentary through Comedy – Covers Home, National, International, Solar System, Universal

As corporations control the media, it is vital we BECOME the MEDIA as much as we can. Listen, learn, investigate, share with others as much as you can; even if you are a not into boring news, you can make information that affects us interesting and creative. It is the only way to hold politicians accountable, as Trump fires attorneys and press. Feminism is important because men have been raping people and the planet a bit too much.

I love this series because it is a combination of some of my favorite shows: Twilight Zone, SNL Weekend Updates, Daily Show, Colbert Report, and many other comedy, music, and sci-fi ideas. Most importantly I care about it because it allows me to express my deep frustration with many problems that we face in society and civilization as a whole. I can press the ‘pedal-to-the-metal’ with my punk rock commentary, using dark satire and jokes. I leave it to true hippies to make only uplifting happy shows that don’t hit hard and prefer to tip-toe on egg-shells.

“Allow me to say some stupid things, and adjust my tie.”

“Thanks for listening, and remember to keep consuming commercial products and polluting.”

News Anchors: Dr. Robot Shit-for-brains, No One, Mr. Nono, Speedy the Hyperactive Hypochondriac, Constantia Erdogan, etc…

Theme music: Star Trek Voyager & Deep Space 9
