Budapest!! The place to be.

Hey look, those who know the Captain will say that I’m ultra-critical, nit-picky, fussy, hard to please – and things of the like. So when you hear me say a thing or place is good, listen up!! Right – I came over to Budapest for dental work. Calm down atRead More

Riot–redefined

As many will know The Cap has so far escaped arrest and extradition, for his ‘tamasic’ writings in relation to Rock-crawlers causing riots. Diehard rock-crawlers intolerant of all things critical of Rock-modus-operandi, had asserted that people have a right to protest if they are frustrated. Enter ‘Chaos’ – the ‘new’Read More

Opportunistic citizenship–part 1

The two words come together on Google but the concept has not been defined as I do here. And – there is as yet no single set of words that will define completely ‘opportunistic citizenship’ [OC]. I’ll give a thumbnail sketch of what OC may involve – but it isRead More

Psychoanalyse

I’m not sure if people truly understand what ‘psychoanalyse’ means. In fact I doubt most people truly grasp what the concept is about. Why? In about 90% of instances, when people ask me what I do and I say ‘shrink’ – they respond with some comment that includes the wordRead More

Hotel Situations

When I say I’m living in a different world and wish to be beamed up, some people think I’m being arrogant. What about if I’m just right!? Look, at these two situations which assaulted me in quick succession this morning. Breakfast – waitress looks at me vacantly and utters somethingRead More

Situation on a bus. My bad.

Yesterday I got on to bus in my local town to get to the train station. Nothing spectacular about that you may think – and rightly so. After all people are doing this a zillion times a day – innit?   I do this short journey of about ten minutes,Read More

This article in a Trinidad & Tobago newspaper 2012-03-10: Rio Claro protests shuts down courts, caused some concern. It is often said by people of the Rock (abbreviation for Trinidad & Tobago) – either on it or of undying allegiance to it – that such actions are justified because “peopleRead More

Waste of my life–the early years

I just calculated that approximately 570 hours of my life between the ages of 5 and 11 were spent compulsorily participating in the singing of bhagans in a language I did not know or understand. I was told to believe in God – and that this was the way. Today,Read More

Like animals ruled as they are

Last night I had an experience – a simple one – most might think, that left me in some degree of bewilderment. I left it alone and allowed my ‘unconscious’ to process it overnight (while I slept). This morning I got up bursting with thoughts. I’m afraid most of youRead More

Going backwards and forwards at the same time.

I slept an unusual 9 hours last night (2011-11-22). I awoke this morning feeling really good for that. Then I went on the net and saw this: Water shortage to end soon  and then Maraval clean-up. I can’t find a single set of words to describe my resulting state ofRead More
