I just find it odd that you can go into store, buy something, like cereal or other brand name, then go home, and find add of similar or exact product in the advertisement section of your email or anywhere else you traverse on the web.
Or you can just walk into a retailer, like Kmart or Sears, then come home, and adds are of Kmart and Sears.
As if our phones are tipping off where we are, but that would take co-operation from retailers and other 3rd parties.
This is an interesting topic I want to dabble into later.
I was looking at older portraits of self, before they were called 'selfies', which I think is a stupid term.
I prefer the term 'self portrait'.
Anyways, looking at some, and realized how much I've evolve in a few years.
I don't think I'll ever be in that mindset again, at least not here, in this environment.
I wanted to look 'beautiful' and did.
Portraits allowed me to project all different sides of myself that society said I shouldn't, or couldn't be, and for about a year and a half, all I did was create self art.
Then I just stopped...not sure why...life changed, environment changed, and I guess I changed.
But it's why I'm glad I was creative when mood window allowed it.
I was a bit nieve too.
Nieve, innocent, all that changes after a while when you start seeing things the way they really are, instead of how you want them to be.
None the less, when you work in theater or the movies, how wonderful it must be to play dress up all the time, and people understanding the context in which you're doing it in.
Yet if you get into a character or play dress up in your own non commercial art, people don't give you the same latitude they do 'Movie Stars' or Theater performers.
So everyone else is just expected to be dull and 1 dimensional.
When in fact dressing up in festivals, with paint, beads, ect, use to be apart of many past cultures, both males and females would adorn self.
Now only women can really do that. As such many women have become very self absorbed, at least in the West.
In the West, the only time men can really dress up and be flamboyant anymore is in the movies, stage or as a Musician, other than that males are generally expected to be bland, when it comes to fashion.
If you're a male and dress up colorfully, people automatically assume, think you're 'gay' or gayish.
I guess all past Indian males would of been considered gay, by todays standards, with feathers in hair and all.
Oh well, what's it matter now.
At least here in the 'Mansion' known as the Zone, spirits have a bit more latitude of expression.

This is every day stuff for folks in the streets, around the world, that mainstream types block out and forget.
Yet now, when gun fire rings out in upper crust zone, the world should be shocked?, feel saddened?
Yet on the streets, all around the world, this stuff goes on all the time, people live in fear all the time, ordinary forgotten people who don't make enough income for the world or media to care about.
Gunmen like this terrorize you once, and then they're done, where as a lot of brutal systems terrorize you over a lifetime through injustice, low pay, bills, corruption.
Where as crazed gun man is simply a one and done type deal.
On my list of things to fear, that cause me anxiety, make me nervously anxious, Islamic terrorist still rank around 49th out of 50 other things.
At least where I live now, Islamist terrorists aren't the ones making my life miserable.
It's State powers, with mandated fees, Insurances, taxes, low pay, banks that won't loan, and Federal intrusion that keeps hard working people at the bottom.
Islamist terrorist are the least of my fears and concerns right now.
