<n|ne> you probably aren't looking for the kinds of things on my blog, though
<Mei> listening to frank now
<n|ne> they're a pretty wide variety of cultures and stuff
<n|ne> and genres
<Mei> reminds me of the beer commercial with hugh hefner
<n|ne> i don't know many commercials
<Mei> good for you
<Mei> commercials are stinky generlly
<Mei> mess with your inner voice
<Mei> at least they try
<Mei> geez, i talk so much
<n|ne> now that's an interesting statement
<n|ne> i'd like to know what you mean by that
<n|ne> "mess with your inner voice"
<Mei> well, i meant that they plant tunes in your head, for instance, that make you remember that product they were trying to sell, and then... apparently.. some people go and buy that product when the need arises, because they remember that song
<n|ne> ahhhhhhhhhhh yes
<n|ne> i understand now
<Mei> : )
<n|ne> yes, it's very bad
<n|ne> most people don't realize how intensely they've been programmed
<Mei> yes, but it also teaches a lesson about not trusting inner voices
<Mei> they're not necessarily yours
<n|ne> hmmm that's true
<Mei> you just have to look
<n|ne> i never thought of it like that
<n|ne> but then... where's the line between "my own" and "others"
<Mei> your own are usually the ones with the best intentions, and speak the softest
<Mei> if you can call them your own at all
<n|ne> but... if "theirs" came from outside... exactly
<n|ne> intentions must be the key
<n|ne> what do i want to make "my own"
<Mei> yes, i think so
<n|ne> and what is unworthy of me
<n|ne> i like tht
<Mei> what would be good to act on, and what wouldn't be
<n|ne> what a thing - everything i am.... came from outside me.
<n|ne> i never really felt it so clearly as i do now
<n|ne> i have to save this conversation somewhere.
