I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More

    I’m not sure I would like to be lectured from the bench if my life was worthy or unworthy. In fact I’m not sure it’s HEr Honor’s duty to decide……rather she has to meet out a just punishment per the societal rules of law.

    She could have easily said that Mr Moody was gifted and even beloved in some respects and according to the Law also acting in a depraved manner, worthy of opprobrium and incarceration. For that she could sentence him…..not because she thought he was a “loser”.

    I obviously interpreted this clip as a metaphor for self righteousness under cover of law. I guess I should watch the entire show….which I have never seen.

    My knee jerk reaction.

    I guess many people like watching these cable series shows and they are entertaining. So I looked up Californication and read the Wiki entries. although I suffered through several seasons of Homeland with my wife who got sucked in, I just feel that there is no real benefit to becoming engrossed in the many dysfunctional and outlandish lives …and scripts that have to push the envelope more and more each season.

    It was hard enough to follow Richards interactions with the farce of an expatriate community in Mexico.

      Richard’s Mexico expatriate community days would make a fuckung excellent mini series. Richard could be played by Charlie Sheen or Jack Nicholson I reckon.
