all the things you will see at the folsom street fair, scott richard

essay from 2016:

interestingly, a lot of big festival and events fall apart because they expand too quickly and the result is social chaos.

the FOLSOM STREET FAIR has reached this point.

THIS IS AN ESSAY ABOUT THE PHRASE "ECONOMIC SHADOW".

an economic shadow refers to the visible and traceable monetary exchanges which are "cast" by an event.

the easiest way to say it best would be to say, "i rode MUNI for $2.25 to get to the fair."

the $2.25 is part of the economic shadow.

cities obviously benefit from economic shadows where they can collect service fees and taxes and legislate all manner of deals.

anyway, let's look at two cases among the economic shadows cast on FOLSOM STREET FAIR. one will be a local shadow. one will be a tourist shadow.

but first, let's look at the fair itself.

this is called ONSITE economics.
unlike SHADOW ECONOMICS,
onsite economics are just economics -- the sum total of all of the revenue which LEGALLY and TECHNICALLY should be able to be traced, sourced and accounted for, but we all know how the FOOD AND BEVERAGE cartels have skimmers, floaters and embezzlers in their midst as much as fire stations make pefect homes for fire bugs...

anyway, our onsite economics will look directly at actual on-site revenue collected through entry donations and booth rentals.
it also will include the onsite food and beveraging, but i will not be computing the food revenues and they will not be included in my totals.

i have forced all of my numbers to be very low.
the end totals are therefore potentially much higher than are represented in my calculations.

next we will look at the offsite revenues. offsite revenues fit into what we have defined as shadow economics.

off site revenues (SHADOW ECONOMICS) are gained through TRANSPORTATION & LODGING, FOOD & BEVERAGE, and the ENTERTAINMENT industries. these are harder to officially trace/track.

in old rome, all of these cartels were referred to as "cake and chariot clubs".
just kidding.
bread and circus, whatever..


but seriously, if we use the numbers which we get online:

"The 33rd Annual Folsom Street Fair, a true only in San Francisco original, covers over 13 city blocks filled with 400,000 people in their most outrageous leather, rubber, and fetish attire enjoying the world's largest leather fair. 2016 Folsom Street Fair.
Sunday, September 25, 2016 | 11 am to 6 pm.”

we can see that they are claiming 400,000 people attend.

i’m not sure about these numbers. i know people come and go, but it really seems like a completely outrageous number for attendance.

but THOSE are THEIR numbers, not mine, so we have to use them for our calculations, but i will use SUPER LOW numbers anyway, because i’m not sure that many people actually attend or if those are inflated numbers.

anyway, at many of the entry points (you can slip in for “free” on several side streets), the MAIN entry points, attendees are MORE THAN STRONGLY ENCOURAGE to donate $10

in the past, they have used funneling techniques to get this 10$ out anyone visiting the fair. but this year, they used a single file tunneling line with barriers attached.

if you DO NOT DONATE, you are shamed by the fascist dynamics that are embedded in LINE FORMATION THEORIES.

sadly, the average person, has grown totally used to the “normalization” process of LINE FORMATION THEORIES here in the u.s.

LINE FORMATION THEORIES, though apparently embedded in the human spirit, always attack the human spirit.

anyway, let’s work with all of this info in creating our numbers.

i stood at the entry point of several of the FREE entry zones. very few people were entering the fair though these incredibly easy entry points. NOT only were there NO LINES and no obligation to pay, but you could enter the fair at better spots.

weird, huh?

but that’s what LINE FORMATION does. it cowers that human spirit and tells them to get in line.

people see a fking line and, like sheep, they think, “i gotta go stand there.”

and they do.

so in my numbers, i’m going to account for this human gullibility.

as a street photographer, i wrestle each year with the idea of donating to the fair.

this year, i chose not to donate.

not only do i share ALL my photos freely and make them available for viewing and reproduction and sharing with attribution, but i also write essays like this about human freedom and sexploration and who we are as people.

and ten dollars to do all of this is starting to make less sense to me.

there’s too much money being raked in, skimmed&stolen, etc.

big business has found a loop hole and big business is going to put ITS stamp on the fair. it has been for quite sometime.

add the POWER OF YELP and MEDIA and the human desire to REPLACE THE LOVE PARADE with anything similar, and you have a financial windfall/social downfall paradigm that will be great for the city — imagine our own LOVE PARADE!!!

which is super cool.

we should have a love parade!!!!

and EVERYONE should be invited.

but why invite ALL people to a BDSM play space on outdoor city streets if all they want to do is go to a LOVE PARADE? some of them might object. it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

some of them might object and BE VOCAL AND start trying to change the event itself, so that the event can adapt to the newcomer.

SF MET needs to embrace their own LOVE PARADE.

intentionally ignoring this seems like limited vision, especially for a city which is so progressively interested in creating global interest in itself?

okay, right, so let’s make up some numbers from what we were given.

basically, according to these numbers, 400K people visited the fair.

let’s say, based on what i saw, some 300,000 of these 400K (notice how liberal i’m being. in reality, i’d imagine that only about 8% of the visiting population went through side entrances) were funneled through DONATION SUGGESTED!!!! entry points.

based on a 60% response to the ENHANCED FILING entrance where the SUGGESTED DONATION actually becomes a STRONGLY IMPLIED CONTRIBUTION FEE,

if even an average number of 40% of the people attending the fair made a contribution of 7$, we end up with $840,000.

that’s shy of a million dollars,

but it’s all floating cash (unaccounted for actual dollars), collected in buckets without receipts.

that’s a lot of floating cash, so you know there will be a crackdown on this soon.

the pride parade went bankrupt because FLOATING CASH is a code phrase for YOU CAN STEAL SOME OF THIS.

it is a magnet for professional embezzlers and thieves.

but that aside, let’s take our number of $840.000 of floating cash and tie it up with some less floating numbers.

we will start with the sale of booths.

www.folsomstreetevents.org/exhibitors-and-vendors/

if you check out the link, it’s blank, so we can’t really know what the actual sales figure for a booth is. we can know that there are single booths which are sold at a different price than double booths.

because we don’t know and apparently can’t know, let’s just say that it’s 300$ for a single booth and 500$ for a double booth. these numbers will be loosey goosey for sure, but we need to have something to put in.

there are over 200 booths in the fair. the link above has a map if you want to run the actual number of single booths versus double booths.

here is one block’s numbers for you — eighth street to ninth street.

48 booths on the one block
26 of those are accounted for by 11 groups who bought multiples booths.
22 are single booth representation

so around 55% of the booths were bought at 500$
and 45% of the booths were bought at 300$

unfairly but for the sake of the task, let’s apply this same percentage breakdown to the advertised booths at OVER 200 this year.

but to go low, again, let’s drop that number by 20 and use 180. we are purposely UNDERESTIMATING at every corner here so that when we actually have access to the “accurate” numbers, the numbers will be higher in reality, not lower.

okay, so we have 180 booths

we can round up and say that 100 of these booths paid 500 dollars and 80 of the booths paid 300 dollars.

this math is easy, we can do it in our eyes.

50,000$ and $24,000

grand total

74K$ for booth rentals.

so now we have 840K plus from entry “donations”

and we have 74K from booth rentals.

that's already $914,000 before you minus out the peanut-costs behind beer, barricades, free volunteer security and organizer’s costs/salaries.

and mind you, we are LITERALLY JUST GETTING STARTED on the actual economic gains.

this is the “portrait” of the artist. we are about to dive into the artist itself, not just the FaceTime moment. we’re going to backtrack the actual monied costs and establish the REALCOST winners.

let’s start with the FOOD AND BEVERAGE CARTEL.

first, the event has a built-in tiered system that encourages beverage consumption.

IF YOU DONATE, you subsequently get 2$ OFF of EVERY purchase of a liquid beverage.

BEER, which was sold in a two-tiered format, priced at 10$ and i think $16. it might’ve been 18$ but i just wasn’t paying attention because i can’t day drink. my body punishes me immediately for any kind of day drinking, which has made me very unpopular at gay brunch parties. it’s intellectually and socially challenging to be around raging partiers at eleven in the morning if all you do is smoke weed and try to eat luxury food…

but back on POINT.
noticeably, let’s address the two TECHNIQUES from tourism/crowd control school that have already been implemented.

firstly, the lined-file entry signifier & now IMPLIED donation that is accompanied by our gaming element of risk and chance — the two dollar drink discount on the variable number of beers you buy. that is, the more beer you buy, the more money you save.
secondly, the two size discount theory. that is, the single booth price charge vs. the double booth discount.

the best thing about all of this so far is that there is NO DISCRIMINATION involved.
but there will be.

that will start as FREE space that has been donated.

at the FOLSOM STREET FAIR, they call it “the playground.”
and laughingly, they call it an inclusive safe space, when all it really is

IS A POLITICAL LYNCH PIN that will give the city and every number of special interest groups the RIGHT to dismantle the mission statement of the fair — THE WORLD”S LARGEST LEATHER BONDAGE event.

so the playground is a space where trender ambiguous people can show off and lip sync but you can’t enjoy what they are up to unless you’re physically formed in a certain way or wish you were and aren’t faking it with some surgical dream that will usher you into a new world where only you know that you were once somebody else clicking your ruby red slippers together and making your MGM movie house dream fantasy tv-adoption theories come true.

the weird thing about gender that everyone should know is that it’s not real.

if you are brave enough to step up and be what you are as you are and want to be, the world you fear drops away and YOU become real. not the other way around.

anyone who is afraid of themselves will always externalize their “enemies.”

it’s instinctive.

so in five years, these special interest groups like ASK FIRST will deride the freedom and the liberty and danger and the trust of the BDSM essentials.

the separatist and shameful HIDEAWAY and misnamed exclusionists will wittle and carve their way into the fair wearing their comic-con and burning man gear and off cast clothes from the love parade.

they are looking for a SAFE space to be shameful.

and that’s really different than the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR.

the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR were to bring out of hiding the deviations of the homosexual community when SEX PLAY becomes a central focus in a man’s life.

and HOMOSEXUALS are men who have sex with men.

that’s not a special interest group. it’s very physical and it’s athletic and it’s not about forming relationships the way that heterosexuals bevy and barter their lies and bulsht in order to self-protect and still get laid.

that’s NOT HOMOSEXUAL.

homosexuals don’t negotiate like that. they negotiate about the action.

and to try to make this kind of thing A PLACE FOR ALL, is homophobic.

it just is.

and if that is hard to understand, i can’t really enlighten this topic anymore, so i’ll just move back to the money…

IT WAS SUPER HOT THIS SUNDAY AT THE FAIR> record temps for all.

so there was a lot of liquid consumption going on.

i donated 5 bucks to the cause and had a $1.25 retail/street value juice.

that means $3.75 of fake money went into the beverage cartel’s pocket — remember, i already gave $1.25 to the retail street, so this is straight UP MONEY SHOT cash. it’s a collection/availability fee to the attendee.

and i’ll say this, at my fair, i would offer FREE WATER and i would OFFER people who really want to volunteer, to bring these same products or get corporations to give away free products that are just as wonderful as the competition and SHARE THEM FREELY with anyone who is thirsty.

lol.
but there should always be FREE WATER.

stick it to the cattle industry if you disagree and stop blaming human consumption of water when the drought is a manufactured attempt for upscaling the costs of water and privatizing it.

wake the fuk up, people.
nestle buys 1 million liters of water for 4 dollars, bottles it, brands it, distributes it, retails it for 99 cents of more and makes 55 million$ in profits after gushy payouts and all??

oh. shit. really?

anyway, because IT ISN'T MY GOAL in ANY WAY to disparage the industries which foist food and water bills on us, and in full compliance with veggie libel laws from the PATRIOT ACT, i disown any and all attachment to the importance of any of my statements. i’m just an artist and a philosopher who likes to do word problems

and, for the record, i make the most concentrated effort to USE THEIR numbers, not just for the “truth” value of identifying with their system and their numbers (though the veggie laws themselves are UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND OUTRAGEOUSLY ANTI-AMERICAN), but because they are at least tangible numbers.

i can’t MAKE THIS SHIT UP and it isn’t my intention to do anything but represent the numbers into word arrangements that make sense.

i’m like the weather woman.
you’re not going to send her to prison for suggesting that another one of our new and fantastic super storms has been started off the coast of florida or texas and will now destroy another city so that it can be rebuilt for global tourism…

anyway, the NUMBERS PLEASE:

out of 400,000 visitors, as it was so scorching hot and the beverages lines were constant steady streams of income collation, let’s estimate THAT EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAD ONE $10 BEVERAGE.

in this number, let’s also assume that every one could take advantage of the discount of buying two or more.

so 400,000 times 8$

here, with this flimsy and completely deflated example of actual sales we find a rather large number:

3.2 million bucks.

i’m not even going to count food. that’s just hazy variables.

but they made money selling food as well.
i’m going to pretend it’s not even a factor, but obviously, they, too, made money. i just don’t know any prices and don’t really care. beverage sales have a much higher profit margin and a way lower overhead.

so, the onsite money intake of the fair with booths and entry donations and a HUGELY underestimated statistic of beverage sales has us at 4 MILLION DOLLARS for one event.

(all of our ECONOMIC studies so far are the actual event itself. the shadows, where MOST OF THE MONEY IS GENERATED, do not happen onsite.

________

OFFSITE ECONOMIC SHADOWS

economic shadows are the unaccounted BUT VISIBLE AND TRACEABLE elements that surround transactions.

for instance, if you go into a store in san francisco and you buy a scarf that cost $99, how can two people pay the following costs for the same scarf?

the local person ends up with all taxes and fees of life, paying 299$

and the out of town person ended up paying 999$ for the same object.

how can it be?

i know, it sounds like a riddle, but i’ll explain it.

the first person lives and works in a downtown neighborhood. she/he has a flat where she/he lives and pays rent for their tiny little shared bedroom in a flat or home or wherever.

she/he shops in the city and travels in the city and does all sorts of ordinary city things. their daily rent is about 60$ and expenses for the rest of the day averaged about $135 including the $99 for the scarf and the daily cost of having an unlimited muni travel pass.

she/he had an economic shadow for the day of $195 -- based on the scarf purchase as the focus point of spending.

in our story, the second person is a TOURIST.

the second person is already paying rent wherever they are from. this rent we will say is the less than the person who lives in san francisco, duh!!!! way less :)

but they’re still paying rent for their apartment even if they’re not there. their rent is about 20$ per night

the second person is ALSO renting a room in a hotel for $150 for each night.

the second person ALSO flew to san francisco on vacation.

the flight was $500 for a roundtrip.
the second person is in the city for three days.
that’s $166 bucks for each day as an average.

the second person took private transport from the airport on arrival and departure. let’s low ball it and say that it ONLY costs 30 dollars round trip.
that’s $10 each day.

during the second person’s stay, they used lyft to get around and spent 60$ on rides. $20 per day.

this same person had a free breakfast at the hotel, but bought a $4 coffee and had a $17 dollar lunch, gave a 3 dollar tip and then had dinner that evening costing 30$. the food intake total for this second person’s day was $54.

down on the embarcadeo, the second person also bought 200$ worth of knick knack gifts from the vendors in front of the ferry building at the base of market street.

this second person had also come to town to attend the folsom street fair.

so they made a visit to mr. S as well and bought an outfit for the fair. it was 45$

the second person was in SoMa after dinner and paid 20$ in cover charges at bars and spent 40$ on drinks.

the second person’s day kept on going after midnight, but that’s where our economic shadow for that day stopped — the night before the fair.

so let’s compare these economic shadows that surround each one of our two individuals:


individual number one, who lives in san francisco and also attended the fair spent a WHOPPING:

two hundred bucks, for the sake of numbers i spent an extra five on something of this person.

and TWO HUNDRED dollar days are EXPENSIVE> this is an EXPENSIVE city. one of the most in the country now.

a lot of city people spend WAY more per day and have extraordinarily lavish lifestyles. but with average room rentals being so extravagant, that tends to be the real expense for a lot of less monied folks.

as it stands, an economic shadow like this requires 6 grand per month.

okay, so we’ve got our first shadow at $200 per day.

now let’s look at the second person. the second person’s grand total for one day is:


170 + 166 + 10 + 20 + 54 + 45 + 200 + 20 + 40 = $904

NOW, ADD THE original scarf to finish the equation, VOILA

$1,003!!!!!

and that is how you charge 99 dollars and 999 dollars for the same scarf.

and that is how business works. next year, that same scarf will cost 149 and 1399 if things work out the way you are supposed to work out.

SF MET, baby!!!!!!


anyway, i feel like i’m gossiping about real people.

let me get back to my point.

the first person hadn’t planned to go to the fair this year.

they were tired of the way the fair was always the same and the twister game and the show offery.

she/he bought a bottle of champagne for $25 to bring to the brunch, they all decided to go to the fair.

so the townperson donated the required TEN bucks (sf people like to participate and can be generous with goods as well as kindnesses — though there’s a ton of criminal insanity that gets tolerated by these same manners of being…), so they got the drink discount.

she/he had two beers at ten dollars a piece, eight after the discount. spent $16, “saved” four on the admission price wink wink — drink more, save more. historically, us gays have loved this kind of economic challenge. but we’re communist about we — it’s a right, not a taxation. we made the BEER BUST FAMOUS.

we as a community are the biggest abuses of alcohol and drugs and anything to distract us from the tragedy and persecution of an indescribable group of men who merely have sex with each other and then must be condemned to that status forever coming-out, trapped in a trap. more beer please.
oh, sex is now boring, give me some drugs and let’s keep playing!

anyway, sorry, got a bit lost.

our intown hero walked to the fair after having a late breakfast at some friends’ place. onsite costs at the fair in total were $26 plus the champagne purchase of $25 for brunch. all expenses (the 51$ and for the rest of the day were minor and our intown hero’s daily life total was once again a rather average $200 including the fair.

which is a two day total of $400


our tourist hero — one who brings a much larger economic shadow to town — skipped the free breakfast and met friends for brunch and drinks for a total of $42

we’ve already factored our traveling/lyft total, so today’s share of that is $20

our tourist hero pays the $10 donation 95% of the time. by its nature, TOURISM is rich people giving money away to poor people in exchange for passage and favors. locals live much more frugally on average than TOURISTS.

inside the fair, the TOURIST stays three hours and drinks one drink per hour.
all three drinks are nonalcoholic.
they are 3 dollars apiece.

with the discount, the TOURIST drinks $9 of beverages.

our TOURIST/second person exits the fair having spent $19.

in this scenario, both characters leave the fair and live their lives.

i won’t make up more math about their days. we can just use the details we have, no need to add more and we already have daily averages determined.

HERE ARE TOTALS for the day, which at first seem desperately obvious, but they aren't:


in town local pays out: $26 + 200/day living expenses

out of town hero pays out: $19 + $407/day living expenses
ADD the previous day's total and this person's TWO DAY ECONOMIC SHADOW is: $1004 + $426 = $1430

in COMMODIFIED TERMS, the tourist's expenses are WORTH a GRAND more than the local's output.


now ask yourself this:

which one is a bigger economic shadow?

which one spent less at the fair than the other?


and this is why the "city" is now becoming a "metropolis".

new rules, new games.


we should demand a love parade...
END PART ONE
maybe i'll write part two when the REAL numbers hit the street.


LASTLY, i'd like to end with a suggestion.


LET'S INVITE THE WORLD's LOVE PARADE TO CELEBRATE IN OUR new metropolis.

but to go low, again, let’s drop that number by 20 and use 180. we are purposely UNDERESTIMATING at every corner here so that when we actually have access to the “accurate” numbers, the numbers will be higher in reality, not lower.

okay, so we have 180 booths

we can round up and say that 100 of these booths paid 500 dollars and 80 of the booths paid 300 dollars.

this math is easy, we can do it in our eyes.

50,000$ and $24,000

grand total

74K$ for booth rentals.

so now we have 840K plus from entry “donations”

and we have 74K from booth rentals.

that's already $914,000 before you minus out the peanut-costs behind beer, barricades, free volunteer security and organizer’s costs/salaries.

and mind you, we are LITERALLY JUST GETTING STARTED on the actual economic gains.

this is the “portrait” of the artist. we are about to dive into the artist itself, not just the FaceTime moment. we’re going to backtrack the actual monied costs and establish the REALCOST winners.

let’s start with the FOOD AND BEVERAGE CARTEL.

first, the event has a built-in tiered system that encourages beverage consumption.

IF YOU DONATE, you subsequently get 2$ OFF of EVERY purchase of a liquid beverage.

BEER, which was sold in a two-tiered format, priced at 10$ and i think $16. it might’ve been 18$ but i just wasn’t paying attention because i can’t day drink. my body punishes me immediately for any kind of day drinking, which has made me very unpopular at gay brunch parties. it’s intellectually and socially challenging to be around raging partiers at eleven in the morning if all you do is smoke weed and try to eat luxury food…

but back on POINT.
noticeably, let’s address the two TECHNIQUES from tourism/crowd control school that have already been implemented.

firstly, the lined-file entry signifier & now IMPLIED donation that is accompanied by our gaming element of risk and chance — the two dollar drink discount on the variable number of beers you buy. that is, the more beer you buy, the more money you save.
secondly, the two size discount theory. that is, the single booth price charge vs. the double booth discount.

the best thing about all of this so far is that there is NO DISCRIMINATION involved.
but there will be.

that will start as FREE space that has been donated.

at the FOLSOM STREET FAIR, they call it “the playground.”
and laughingly, they call it an inclusive safe space, when all it really is

IS A POLITICAL LYNCH PIN that will give the city and every number of special interest groups the RIGHT to dismantle the mission statement of the fair — THE WORLD”S LARGEST LEATHER BONDAGE event.

so the playground is a space where trender ambiguous people can show off and lip sync but you can’t enjoy what they are up to unless you’re physically formed in a certain way or wish you were and aren’t faking it with some surgical dream that will usher you into a new world where only you know that you were once somebody else clicking your ruby red slippers together and making your MGM movie house dream fantasy tv-adoption theories come true.

the weird thing about gender that everyone should know is that it’s not real.

if you are brave enough to step up and be what you are as you are and want to be, the world you fear drops away and YOU become real. not the other way around.

anyone who is afraid of themselves will always externalize their “enemies.”

it’s instinctive.

so in five years, these special interest groups like ASK FIRST will deride the freedom and the liberty and danger and the trust of the BDSM essentials.

the separatist and shameful HIDEAWAY and misnamed exclusionists will wittle and carve their way into the fair wearing their comic-con and burning man gear and off cast clothes from the love parade.

they are looking for a SAFE space to be shameful.

and that’s really different than the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR.

the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR were to bring out of hiding the deviations of the homosexual community when SEX PLAY becomes a central focus in a man’s life.

and HOMOSEXUALS are men who have sex with men.

that’s not a special interest group. it’s very physical and it’s athletic and it’s not about forming relationships the way that heterosexuals bevy and barter their lies and bulsht in order to self-protect and still get laid.

that’s NOT HOMOSEXUAL.

homosexuals don’t negotiate like that. they negotiate about the action.

and to try to make this kind of thing A PLACE FOR ALL, is homophobic.

it just is.

and if that is hard to understand, i can’t really enlighten this topic anymore, so i’ll just move back to the money…

IT WAS SUPER HOT THIS SUNDAY AT THE FAIR> record temps for all.

so there was a lot of liquid consumption going on.

i donated 5 bucks to the cause and had a $1.25 retail/street value juice.

that means $3.75 of fake money went into the beverage cartel’s pocket — remember, i already gave $1.25 to the retail street, so this is straight UP MONEY SHOT cash. it’s a collection/availability fee to the attendee.

and i’ll say this, at my fair, i would offer FREE WATER and i would OFFER people who really want to volunteer, to bring these same products or get corporations to give away free products that are just as wonderful as the competition and SHARE THEM FREELY with anyone who is thirsty.

lol.
but there should always be FREE WATER.

stick it to the cattle industry if you disagree and stop blaming human consumption of water when the drought is a manufactured attempt for upscaling the costs of water and privatizing it.

wake the fuk up, people.
nestle buys 1 million liters of water for 4 dollars, bottles it, brands it, distributes it, retails it for 99 cents of more and makes 55 million$ in profits after gushy payouts and all??

oh. shit. really?

anyway, because IT ISN'T MY GOAL in ANY WAY to disparage the industries which foist food and water bills on us, and in full compliance with veggie libel laws from the PATRIOT ACT, i disown any and all attachment to the importance of any of my statements. i’m just an artist and a philosopher who likes to do word problems

and, for the record, i make the most concentrated effort to USE THEIR numbers, not just for the “truth” value of identifying with their system and their numbers (though the veggie laws themselves are UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND OUTRAGEOUSLY ANTI-AMERICAN), but because they are at least tangible numbers.

i can’t MAKE THIS SHIT UP and it isn’t my intention to do anything but represent the numbers into word arrangements that make sense.

i’m like the weather woman.
you’re not going to send her to prison for suggesting that another one of our new and fantastic super storms has been started off the coast of florida or texas and will now destroy another city so that it can be rebuilt for global tourism…

anyway, the NUMBERS PLEASE:

out of 400,000 visitors, as it was so scorching hot and the beverages lines were constant steady streams of income collation, let’s estimate THAT EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAD ONE $10 BEVERAGE.

in this number, let’s also assume that every one could take advantage of the discount of buying two or more.

so 400,000 times 8$

here, with this flimsy and completely deflated example of actual sales we find a rather large number:

3.2 million bucks.

i’m not even going to count food. that’s just hazy variables.

but they made money selling food as well.
i’m going to pretend it’s not even a factor, but obviously, they, too, made money. i just don’t know any prices and don’t really care. beverage sales have a much higher profit margin and a way lower overhead.

so, the onsite money intake of the fair with booths and entry donations and a HUGELY underestimated statistic of beverage sales has us at 4 MILLION DOLLARS for one event.

(all of our ECONOMIC studies so far are the actual event itself. the shadows, where MOST OF THE MONEY IS GENERATED, do not happen onsite.

________

OFFSITE ECONOMIC SHADOWS

economic shadows are the unaccounted BUT VISIBLE AND TRACEABLE elements that surround transactions.

for instance, if you go into a store in san francisco and you buy a scarf that cost $99, how can two people pay the following costs for the same scarf?

the local person ends up with all taxes and fees of life, paying 299$

and the out of town person ended up paying 999$ for the same object.

how can it be?

i know, it sounds like a riddle, but i’ll explain it.

the first person lives and works in a downtown neighborhood. she/he has a flat where she/he lives and pays rent for their tiny little shared bedroom in a flat or home or wherever.

she/he shops in the city and travels in the city and does all sorts of ordinary city things. their daily rent is about 60$ and expenses for the rest of the day averaged about $135 including the $99 for the scarf and the daily cost of having an unlimited muni travel pass.

she/he had an economic shadow for the day of $195 -- based on the scarf purchase as the focus point of spending.

in our story, the second person is a TOURIST.

the second person is already paying rent wherever they are from. this rent we will say is the less than the person who lives in san francisco, duh!!!! way less :)

but they’re still paying rent for their apartment even if they’re not there. their rent is about 20$ per night

the second person is ALSO renting a room in a hotel for $150 for each night.

the second person ALSO flew to san francisco on vacation.

the flight was $500 for a roundtrip.
the second person is in the city for three days.
that’s $166 bucks for each day as an average.

the second person took private transport from the airport on arrival and departure. let’s low ball it and say that it ONLY costs 30 dollars round trip.
that’s $10 each day.

during the second person’s stay, they used lyft to get around and spent 60$ on rides. $20 per day.

this same person had a free breakfast at the hotel, but bought a $4 coffee and had a $17 dollar lunch, gave a 3 dollar tip and then had dinner that evening costing 30$. the food intake total for this second person’s day was $54.

down on the embarcadeo, the second person also bought 200$ worth of knick knack gifts from the vendors in front of the ferry building at the base of market street.

this second person had also come to town to attend the folsom street fair.

so they made a visit to mr. S as well and bought an outfit for the fair. it was 45$

the second person was in SoMa after dinner and paid 20$ in cover charges at bars and spent 40$ on drinks.

the second person’s day kept on going after midnight, but that’s where our economic shadow for that day stopped — the night before the fair.

so let’s compare these economic shadows that surround each one of our two individuals:


individual number one, who lives in san francisco and also attended the fair spent a WHOPPING:

two hundred bucks, for the sake of numbers i spent an extra five on something of this person.

and TWO HUNDRED dollar days are EXPENSIVE> this is an EXPENSIVE city. one of the most in the country now.

a lot of city people spend WAY more per day and have extraordinarily lavish lifestyles. but with average room rentals being so extravagant, that tends to be the real expense for a lot of less monied folks.

as it stands, an economic shadow like this requires 6 grand per month.

okay, so we’ve got our first shadow at $200 per day.

now let’s look at the second person. the second person’s grand total for one day is:


170 + 166 + 10 + 20 + 54 + 45 + 200 + 20 + 40 = $904

NOW, ADD THE original scarf to finish the equation, VOILA

$1,003!!!!!

and that is how you charge 99 dollars and 999 dollars for the same scarf.

and that is how business works. next year, that same scarf will cost 149 and 1399 if things work out the way you are supposed to work out.

SF MET, baby!!!!!!


anyway, i feel like i’m gossiping about real people.

let me get back to my point.

the first person hadn’t planned to go to the fair this year.

they were tired of the way the fair was always the same and the twister game and the show offery.

she/he bought a bottle of champagne for $25 to bring to the brunch, they all decided to go to the fair.

so the townperson donated the required TEN bucks (sf people like to participate and can be generous with goods as well as kindnesses — though there’s a ton of criminal insanity that gets tolerated by these same manners of being…), so they got the drink discount.

she/he had two beers at ten dollars a piece, eight after the discount. spent $16, “saved” four on the admission price wink wink — drink more, save more. historically, us gays have loved this kind of economic challenge. but we’re communist about we — it’s a right, not a taxation. we made the BEER BUST FAMOUS.

we as a community are the biggest abuses of alcohol and drugs and anything to distract us from the tragedy and persecution of an indescribable group of men who merely have sex with each other and then must be condemned to that status forever coming-out, trapped in a trap. more beer please.
oh, sex is now boring, give me some drugs and let’s keep playing!

anyway, sorry, got a bit lost.

our intown hero walked to the fair after having a late breakfast at some friends’ place. onsite costs at the fair in total were $26 plus the champagne purchase of $25 for brunch. all expenses (the 51$ and for the rest of the day were minor and our intown hero’s daily life total was once again a rather average $200 including the fair.

which is a two day total of $400


our tourist hero — one who brings a much larger economic shadow to town — skipped the free breakfast and met friends for brunch and drinks for a total of $42

we’ve already factored our traveling/lyft total, so today’s share of that is $20

our tourist hero pays the $10 donation 95% of the time. by its nature, TOURISM is rich people giving money away to poor people in exchange for passage and favors. locals live much more frugally on average than TOURISTS.

inside the fair, the TOURIST stays three hours and drinks one drink per hour.
all three drinks are nonalcoholic.
they are 3 dollars apiece.

with the discount, the TOURIST drinks $9 of beverages.

our TOURIST/second person exits the fair having spent $19.

in this scenario, both characters leave the fair and live their lives.

i won’t make up more math about their days. we can just use the details we have, no need to add more and we already have daily averages determined.

HERE ARE TOTALS for the day, which at first seem desperately obvious, but they aren't:


in town local pays out: $26 + 200/day living expenses

out of town hero pays out: $19 + $407/day living expenses
ADD the previous day's total and this person's TWO DAY ECONOMIC SHADOW is: $1004 + $426 = $1430

in COMMODIFIED TERMS, the tourist's expenses are WORTH a GRAND more than the local's output.


now ask yourself this:

which one is a bigger economic shadow?

which one spent less at the fair than the other?


and this is why the "city" is now becoming a "metropolis".

new rules, new games.


we should demand a love parade...
END PART ONE
maybe i'll write part two when the REAL numbers hit the street.


LASTLY, i'd like to end with a suggestion.


LET'S INVITE THE WORLD's LOVE PARADE TO CELEBRATE IN OUR new metropolis.

all the things you will see at the folsom street fair, scott richard

all the things you will see at the folsom street fair, scott richard

essay from 2016:

interestingly, a lot of big festival and events fall apart because they expand too quickly and the result is social chaos.

the FOLSOM STREET FAIR has reached this point.

THIS IS AN ESSAY ABOUT THE PHRASE "ECONOMIC SHADOW".

an economic shadow refers to the visible and traceable monetary exchanges which are "cast" by an event.

the easiest way to say it best would be to say, "i rode MUNI for $2.25 to get to the fair."

the $2.25 is part of the economic shadow.

cities obviously benefit from economic shadows where they can collect service fees and taxes and legislate all manner of deals.

anyway, let's look at two cases among the economic shadows cast on FOLSOM STREET FAIR. one will be a local shadow. one will be a tourist shadow.

but first, let's look at the fair itself.

this is called ONSITE economics.
unlike SHADOW ECONOMICS,
onsite economics are just economics -- the sum total of all of the revenue which LEGALLY and TECHNICALLY should be able to be traced, sourced and accounted for, but we all know how the FOOD AND BEVERAGE cartels have skimmers, floaters and embezzlers in their midst as much as fire stations make pefect homes for fire bugs...

anyway, our onsite economics will look directly at actual on-site revenue collected through entry donations and booth rentals.
it also will include the onsite food and beveraging, but i will not be computing the food revenues and they will not be included in my totals.

i have forced all of my numbers to be very low.
the end totals are therefore potentially much higher than are represented in my calculations.

next we will look at the offsite revenues. offsite revenues fit into what we have defined as shadow economics.

off site revenues (SHADOW ECONOMICS) are gained through TRANSPORTATION & LODGING, FOOD & BEVERAGE, and the ENTERTAINMENT industries. these are harder to officially trace/track.

in old rome, all of these cartels were referred to as "cake and chariot clubs".
just kidding.
bread and circus, whatever..


but seriously, if we use the numbers which we get online:

"The 33rd Annual Folsom Street Fair, a true only in San Francisco original, covers over 13 city blocks filled with 400,000 people in their most outrageous leather, rubber, and fetish attire enjoying the world's largest leather fair. 2016 Folsom Street Fair.
Sunday, September 25, 2016 | 11 am to 6 pm.”

we can see that they are claiming 400,000 people attend.

i’m not sure about these numbers. i know people come and go, but it really seems like a completely outrageous number for attendance.

but THOSE are THEIR numbers, not mine, so we have to use them for our calculations, but i will use SUPER LOW numbers anyway, because i’m not sure that many people actually attend or if those are inflated numbers.

anyway, at many of the entry points (you can slip in for “free” on several side streets), the MAIN entry points, attendees are MORE THAN STRONGLY ENCOURAGE to donate $10

in the past, they have used funneling techniques to get this 10$ out anyone visiting the fair. but this year, they used a single file tunneling line with barriers attached.

if you DO NOT DONATE, you are shamed by the fascist dynamics that are embedded in LINE FORMATION THEORIES.

sadly, the average person, has grown totally used to the “normalization” process of LINE FORMATION THEORIES here in the u.s.

LINE FORMATION THEORIES, though apparently embedded in the human spirit, always attack the human spirit.

anyway, let’s work with all of this info in creating our numbers.

i stood at the entry point of several of the FREE entry zones. very few people were entering the fair though these incredibly easy entry points. NOT only were there NO LINES and no obligation to pay, but you could enter the fair at better spots.

weird, huh?

but that’s what LINE FORMATION does. it cowers that human spirit and tells them to get in line.

people see a fking line and, like sheep, they think, “i gotta go stand there.”

and they do.

so in my numbers, i’m going to account for this human gullibility.

as a street photographer, i wrestle each year with the idea of donating to the fair.

this year, i chose not to donate.

not only do i share ALL my photos freely and make them available for viewing and reproduction and sharing with attribution, but i also write essays like this about human freedom and sexploration and who we are as people.

and ten dollars to do all of this is starting to make less sense to me.

there’s too much money being raked in, skimmed&stolen, etc.

big business has found a loop hole and big business is going to put ITS stamp on the fair. it has been for quite sometime.

add the POWER OF YELP and MEDIA and the human desire to REPLACE THE LOVE PARADE with anything similar, and you have a financial windfall/social downfall paradigm that will be great for the city — imagine our own LOVE PARADE!!!

which is super cool.

we should have a love parade!!!!

and EVERYONE should be invited.

but why invite ALL people to a BDSM play space on outdoor city streets if all they want to do is go to a LOVE PARADE? some of them might object. it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

some of them might object and BE VOCAL AND start trying to change the event itself, so that the event can adapt to the newcomer.

SF MET needs to embrace their own LOVE PARADE.

intentionally ignoring this seems like limited vision, especially for a city which is so progressively interested in creating global interest in itself?

okay, right, so let’s make up some numbers from what we were given.

basically, according to these numbers, 400K people visited the fair.

let’s say, based on what i saw, some 300,000 of these 400K (notice how liberal i’m being. in reality, i’d imagine that only about 8% of the visiting population went through side entrances) were funneled through DONATION SUGGESTED!!!! entry points.

based on a 60% response to the ENHANCED FILING entrance where the SUGGESTED DONATION actually becomes a STRONGLY IMPLIED CONTRIBUTION FEE,

if even an average number of 40% of the people attending the fair made a contribution of 7$, we end up with $840,000.

that’s shy of a million dollars,

but it’s all floating cash (unaccounted for actual dollars), collected in buckets without receipts.

that’s a lot of floating cash, so you know there will be a crackdown on this soon.

the pride parade went bankrupt because FLOATING CASH is a code phrase for YOU CAN STEAL SOME OF THIS.

it is a magnet for professional embezzlers and thieves.

but that aside, let’s take our number of $840.000 of floating cash and tie it up with some less floating numbers.

we will start with the sale of booths.

www.folsomstreetevents.org/exhibitors-and-vendors/

if you check out the link, it’s blank, so we can’t really know what the actual sales figure for a booth is. we can know that there are single booths which are sold at a different price than double booths.

because we don’t know and apparently can’t know, let’s just say that it’s 300$ for a single booth and 500$ for a double booth. these numbers will be loosey goosey for sure, but we need to have something to put in.

there are over 200 booths in the fair. the link above has a map if you want to run the actual number of single booths versus double booths.

here is one block’s numbers for you — eighth street to ninth street.

48 booths on the one block
26 of those are accounted for by 11 groups who bought multiples booths.
22 are single booth representation

so around 55% of the booths were bought at 500$
and 45% of the booths were bought at 300$

unfairly but for the sake of the task, let’s apply this same percentage breakdown to the advertised booths at OVER 200 this year.

but to go low, again, let’s drop that number by 20 and use 180. we are purposely UNDERESTIMATING at every corner here so that when we actually have access to the “accurate” numbers, the numbers will be higher in reality, not lower.

okay, so we have 180 booths

we can round up and say that 100 of these booths paid 500 dollars and 80 of the booths paid 300 dollars.

this math is easy, we can do it in our eyes.

50,000$ and $24,000

grand total

74K$ for booth rentals.

so now we have 840K plus from entry “donations”

and we have 74K from booth rentals.

that's already $914,000 before you minus out the peanut-costs behind beer, barricades, free volunteer security and organizer’s costs/salaries.

and mind you, we are LITERALLY JUST GETTING STARTED on the actual economic gains.

this is the “portrait” of the artist. we are about to dive into the artist itself, not just the FaceTime moment. we’re going to backtrack the actual monied costs and establish the REALCOST winners.

let’s start with the FOOD AND BEVERAGE CARTEL.

first, the event has a built-in tiered system that encourages beverage consumption.

IF YOU DONATE, you subsequently get 2$ OFF of EVERY purchase of a liquid beverage.

BEER, which was sold in a two-tiered format, priced at 10$ and i think $16. it might’ve been 18$ but i just wasn’t paying attention because i can’t day drink. my body punishes me immediately for any kind of day drinking, which has made me very unpopular at gay brunch parties. it’s intellectually and socially challenging to be around raging partiers at eleven in the morning if all you do is smoke weed and try to eat luxury food…

but back on POINT.
noticeably, let’s address the two TECHNIQUES from tourism/crowd control school that have already been implemented.

firstly, the lined-file entry signifier & now IMPLIED donation that is accompanied by our gaming element of risk and chance — the two dollar drink discount on the variable number of beers you buy. that is, the more beer you buy, the more money you save.
secondly, the two size discount theory. that is, the single booth price charge vs. the double booth discount.

the best thing about all of this so far is that there is NO DISCRIMINATION involved.
but there will be.

that will start as FREE space that has been donated.

at the FOLSOM STREET FAIR, they call it “the playground.”
and laughingly, they call it an inclusive safe space, when all it really is

the separatist and shameful HIDEAWAY and misnamed exclusionists will wittle and carve their way into the fair wearing their comic-con and burning man gear and off cast clothes from the love parade.

they are looking for a SAFE space to be shameful.

and that’s really different than the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR.

IT WAS SUPER HOT THIS SUNDAY AT THE FAIR> record temps for all.

so there was a lot of liquid consumption going on.

i donated 5 bucks to the cause and had a $1.25 retail/street value juice.

that means $3.75 of fake money went into the beverage cartel’s pocket — remember, i already gave $1.25 to the retail street, so this is straight UP MONEY SHOT cash. it’s a collection/availability fee to the attendee.

and i’ll say this, at my fair, i would offer FREE WATER and i would OFFER people who really want to volunteer, to bring these same products or get corporations to give away free products that are just as wonderful as the competition and SHARE THEM FREELY with anyone who is thirsty.

lol.
but there should always be FREE WATER.

stick it to the cattle industry if you disagree and stop blaming human consumption of water when the drought is a manufactured attempt for upscaling the costs of water and privatizing it.

wake the fuk up, people.
nestle buys 1 million liters of water for 4 dollars, bottles it, brands it, distributes it, retails it for 99 cents of more and makes 55 million$ in profits after gushy payouts and all??

oh. shit. really?

anyway, because IT ISN'T MY GOAL in ANY WAY to disparage the industries which foist food and water bills on us, and in full compliance with veggie libel laws from the PATRIOT ACT, i disown any and all attachment to the importance of any of my statements. i’m just an artist and a philosopher who likes to do word problems

and, for the record, i make the most concentrated effort to USE THEIR numbers, not just for the “truth” value of identifying with their system and their numbers (though the veggie laws themselves are UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND OUTRAGEOUSLY ANTI-AMERICAN), but because they are at least tangible numbers.

i can’t MAKE THIS SHIT UP and it isn’t my intention to do anything but represent the numbers into word arrangements that make sense.

________

OFFSITE ECONOMIC SHADOWS

economic shadows are the unaccounted BUT VISIBLE AND TRACEABLE elements that surround transactions.

for instance, if you go into a store in san francisco and you buy a scarf that cost $99, how can two people pay the following costs for the same scarf?

the local person ends up with all taxes and fees of life, paying 299$

and the out of town person ended up paying 999$ for the same object.

how can it be?

i know, it sounds like a riddle, but i’ll explain it.

the first person lives and works in a downtown neighborhood. she/he has a flat where she/he lives and pays rent for their tiny little shared bedroom in a flat or home or wherever.

she/he shops in the city and travels in the city and does all sorts of ordinary city things. their daily rent is about 60$ and expenses for the rest of the day averaged about $135 including the $99 for the scarf and the daily cost of having an unlimited muni travel pass.

she/he had an economic shadow for the day of $195 -- based on the scarf purchase as the focus point of spending.

in our story, the second person is a TOURIST.

the second person is already paying rent wherever they are from. this rent we will say is the less than the person who lives in san francisco, duh!!!! way less :)

but they’re still paying rent for their apartment even if they’re not there. their rent is about 20$ per night

the second person is ALSO renting a room in a hotel for $150 for each night.

the second person ALSO flew to san francisco on vacation.

the flight was $500 for a roundtrip.
the second person is in the city for three days.
that’s $166 bucks for each day as an average.

the second person took private transport from the airport on arrival and departure. let’s low ball it and say that it ONLY costs 30 dollars round trip.
that’s $10 each day.

during the second person’s stay, they used lyft to get around and spent 60$ on rides. $20 per day.

this same person had a free breakfast at the hotel, but bought a $4 coffee and had a $17 dollar lunch, gave a 3 dollar tip and then had dinner that evening costing 30$. the food intake total for this second person’s day was $54.

down on the embarcadeo, the second person also bought 200$ worth of knick knack gifts from the vendors in front of the ferry building at the base of market street.

this second person had also come to town to attend the folsom street fair.

so they made a visit to mr. S as well and bought an outfit for the fair. it was 45$

the second person was in SoMa after dinner and paid 20$ in cover charges at bars and spent 40$ on drinks.

the second person’s day kept on going after midnight, but that’s where our economic shadow for that day stopped — the night before the fair.

so let’s compare these economic shadows that surround each one of our two individuals:


individual number one, who lives in san francisco and also attended the fair spent a WHOPPING:

two hundred bucks, for the sake of numbers i spent an extra five on something of this person.

and TWO HUNDRED dollar days are EXPENSIVE> this is an EXPENSIVE city. one of the most in the country now.

a lot of city people spend WAY more per day and have extraordinarily lavish lifestyles. but with average room rentals being so extravagant, that tends to be the real expense for a lot of less monied folks.

as it stands, an economic shadow like this requires 6 grand per month.

okay, so we’ve got our first shadow at $200 per day.

now let’s look at the second person. the second person’s grand total for one day is:


170 + 166 + 10 + 20 + 54 + 45 + 200 + 20 + 40 = $904

NOW, ADD THE original scarf to finish the equation, VOILA

$1,003!!!!!

and that is how you charge 99 dollars and 999 dollars for the same scarf.

and that is how business works. next year, that same scarf will cost 149 and 1399 if things work out the way you are supposed to work out.

SF MET, baby!!!!!!


anyway, i feel like i’m gossiping about real people.

let me get back to my point.

the first person hadn’t planned to go to the fair this year.

they were tired of the way the fair was always the same and the twister game and the show offery.

she/he bought a bottle of champagne for $25 to bring to the brunch, they all decided to go to the fair.

so the townperson donated the required TEN bucks (sf people like to participate and can be generous with goods as well as kindnesses — though there’s a ton of criminal insanity that gets tolerated by these same manners of being…), so they got the drink discount.

she/he had two beers at ten dollars a piece, eight after the discount. spent $16, “saved” four on the admission price wink wink — drink more, save more. historically, us gays have loved this kind of economic challenge. but we’re communist about we — it’s a right, not a taxation. we made the BEER BUST FAMOUS.

we as a community are the biggest abuses of alcohol and drugs and anything to distract us from the tragedy and persecution of an indescribable group of men who merely have sex with each other and then must be condemned to that status forever coming-out, trapped in a trap. more beer please.
oh, sex is now boring, give me some drugs and let’s keep playing!

anyway, sorry, got a bit lost.

our intown hero walked to the fair after having a late breakfast at some friends’ place. onsite costs at the fair in total were $26 plus the champagne purchase of $25 for brunch. all expenses (the 51$ and for the rest of the day were minor and our intown hero’s daily life total was once again a rather average $200 including the fair.

which is a two day total of $400


our tourist hero — one who brings a much larger economic shadow to town — skipped the free breakfast and met friends for brunch and drinks for a total of $42

we’ve already factored our traveling/lyft total, so today’s share of that is $20

our tourist hero pays the $10 donation 95% of the time. by its nature, TOURISM is rich people giving money away to poor people in exchange for passage and favors. locals live much more frugally on average than TOURISTS.

inside the fair, the TOURIST stays three hours and drinks one drink per hour.
all three drinks are nonalcoholic.
they are 3 dollars apiece.

with the discount, the TOURIST drinks $9 of beverages.

our TOURIST/second person exits the fair having spent $19.

in this scenario, both characters leave the fair and live their lives.

i won’t make up more math about their days. we can just use the details we have, no need to add more and we already have daily averages determined.

HERE ARE TOTALS for the day, which at first seem desperately obvious, but they aren't:


in town local pays out: $26 + 200/day living expenses

out of town hero pays out: $19 + $407/day living expenses
ADD the previous day's total and this person's TWO DAY ECONOMIC SHADOW is: $1004 + $426 = $1430

in COMMODIFIED TERMS, the tourist's expenses are WORTH a GRAND more than the local's output.


now ask yourself this:

which one is a bigger economic shadow?

which one spent less at the fair than the other?


and this is why the "city" is now becoming a "metropolis".

new rules, new games.


we should demand a love parade...
END PART ONE
maybe i'll write part two when the REAL numbers hit the street.


LASTLY, i'd like to end with a suggestion.


LET'S INVITE THE WORLD's LOVE PARADE TO CELEBRATE IN OUR new metropolis.

FOR ALL LOVE DIES -- "the media/medium wants to be a lot more than the message!" -- industrial crucifixion -- arms awider, scott richard (2010 -- a collage with self portrait photograph from 1990 -- text from august 2016)

so we can have a business thief or a calculating, cold-hearted politician for president.

is this so hard for people to understand?

trump is a genius at creating debt, leveraging debt, and talking his way out of debt's grip.

hillary has worked hard for decades inside u.s. government.

trump is genius business crook. a business crook is someone who does business as a crook. a crook will exploit and violate any openings that AREN'T specifically illegal.

crooks make bad business partners for certain types of people.
crooks have an endless array of ever-changing grammar games.
crooks use coded language.
crooks lie not only to everyone else, but mostly to themselves.

entrenched in the human condition is a tendency to "talk to oneself" and to learn to identify this "self" that we talk to as "ourself" or our "identity."

donald has names for his because he has more than one cowardly lion in his jungle mind.

and, like most things in the contemporary perspective of the west, his identification is skewed.

mostly because there is no "self".
that "self" you are talking to is just a reflection of your own cowardice taking up form in your mind -- those aren't even words that aren't echoing through your "mind".

the buddhists denounce the exercising of these voices.
it leads to deception, betrayal, revenge, dispersion of bad will, self delusion and a myriad of ripple-effect emotional ghosts.

the creation of these "ghosts" is said to be the great emanation of suffering upon all others -- the attachment of the coward becomes the ocean of the people.

worse even, crooks like to pretend to be YOUR favorite voices in your own head. trump knows that if he upsets you, all you'll do is think about him.

he has perfected the parable of the two monks, seen the lesson and taken the part he likes and applied it elsewhere, as crooks will do.

the parable goes like this:

monks aren't supposed to touch women.
two monks are crossing a river.
a woman is there and needs help.
one monk carries the woman across the river.
the other monk is enraged.
for miles they walk.
finally the enraged monk goes ballistic about the other monk breaking the code of conduct.
the other monk turns and says, "i carried that woman across the river, but you've been carrying her for miles."

and so has the u.s. public been carrying trump for MILES.

dump him!

instead, as a crook, trump gets more air time and air play and sound bites and lambasts than any person alive right now.

everywhere you look there is an ad for trump -- either as news or someone to hate.

news is no more news.

so as you go to select your president this year, those of you who still vote instead of exercising your right to NOT VOTE (if you vote, you have no right to revolution later, just saying)....

may i suggest to any and all just one thing>

whenever you read or hear a blurb or article or anything regarding this "presidency", ask yourself ONE question:

HOW CAN THE MEDIA MAKE MONEY OFF OF THIS?

you will get the best answers no matter what the article concerns. asking this question will take you more directly toward the root truths.

and namely, the biggest and most apparent truth of all -- the media wants to be a lot more than the message.

there's a reason we should all BOYCOTT NBC


"beyond love is contentment and ease.
one must travel through love to let go of it,
for love is not a business suit,
a cocktail dress,
or a mohawk.
love is a distance one travels,
it is a life
that ends as many times as it begins."

all the things you will see at the folsom street fair, scott richard

all the things you will see at the folsom street fair, scott richard

essay from 2016:

interestingly, a lot of big festival and events fall apart because they expand too quickly and the result is social chaos.

the FOLSOM STREET FAIR has reached this point.

THIS IS AN ESSAY ABOUT THE PHRASE "ECONOMIC SHADOW".

an economic shadow refers to the visible and traceable monetary exchanges which are "cast" by an event.

the easiest way to say it best would be to say, "i rode MUNI for $2.25 to get to the fair."

the $2.25 is part of the economic shadow.

cities obviously benefit from economic shadows where they can collect service fees and taxes and legislate all manner of deals.

anyway, let's look at two cases among the economic shadows cast on FOLSOM STREET FAIR. one will be a local shadow. one will be a tourist shadow.

but first, let's look at the fair itself.

this is called ONSITE economics.
unlike SHADOW ECONOMICS,
onsite economics are just economics -- the sum total of all of the revenue which LEGALLY and TECHNICALLY should be able to be traced, sourced and accounted for, but we all know how the FOOD AND BEVERAGE cartels have skimmers, floaters and embezzlers in their midst as much as fire stations make pefect homes for fire bugs...

anyway, our onsite economics will look directly at actual on-site revenue collected through entry donations and booth rentals.
it also will include the onsite food and beveraging, but i will not be computing the food revenues and they will not be included in my totals.

i have forced all of my numbers to be very low.
the end totals are therefore potentially much higher than are represented in my calculations.

next we will look at the offsite revenues. offsite revenues fit into what we have defined as shadow economics.

off site revenues (SHADOW ECONOMICS) are gained through TRANSPORTATION & LODGING, FOOD & BEVERAGE, and the ENTERTAINMENT industries. these are harder to officially trace/track.

in old rome, all of these cartels were referred to as "cake and chariot clubs".
just kidding.
bread and circus, whatever..


but seriously, if we use the numbers which we get online:

"The 33rd Annual Folsom Street Fair, a true only in San Francisco original, covers over 13 city blocks filled with 400,000 people in their most outrageous leather, rubber, and fetish attire enjoying the world's largest leather fair. 2016 Folsom Street Fair.
Sunday, September 25, 2016 | 11 am to 6 pm.”

we can see that they are claiming 400,000 people attend.

i’m not sure about these numbers. i know people come and go, but it really seems like a completely outrageous number for attendance.

but THOSE are THEIR numbers, not mine, so we have to use them for our calculations, but i will use SUPER LOW numbers anyway, because i’m not sure that many people actually attend or if those are inflated numbers.

anyway, at many of the entry points (you can slip in for “free” on several side streets), the MAIN entry points, attendees are MORE THAN STRONGLY ENCOURAGE to donate $10

in the past, they have used funneling techniques to get this 10$ out anyone visiting the fair. but this year, they used a single file tunneling line with barriers attached.

if you DO NOT DONATE, you are shamed by the fascist dynamics that are embedded in LINE FORMATION THEORIES.

sadly, the average person, has grown totally used to the “normalization” process of LINE FORMATION THEORIES here in the u.s.

LINE FORMATION THEORIES, though apparently embedded in the human spirit, always attack the human spirit.

anyway, let’s work with all of this info in creating our numbers.

i stood at the entry point of several of the FREE entry zones. very few people were entering the fair though these incredibly easy entry points. NOT only were there NO LINES and no obligation to pay, but you could enter the fair at better spots.

weird, huh?

but that’s what LINE FORMATION does. it cowers that human spirit and tells them to get in line.

people see a fking line and, like sheep, they think, “i gotta go stand there.”

and they do.

so in my numbers, i’m going to account for this human gullibility.

as a street photographer, i wrestle each year with the idea of donating to the fair.

this year, i chose not to donate.

not only do i share ALL my photos freely and make them available for viewing and reproduction and sharing with attribution, but i also write essays like this about human freedom and sexploration and who we are as people.

and ten dollars to do all of this is starting to make less sense to me.

there’s too much money being raked in, skimmed&stolen, etc.

big business has found a loop hole and big business is going to put ITS stamp on the fair. it has been for quite sometime.

add the POWER OF YELP and MEDIA and the human desire to REPLACE THE LOVE PARADE with anything similar, and you have a financial windfall/social downfall paradigm that will be great for the city — imagine our own LOVE PARADE!!!

which is super cool.

we should have a love parade!!!!

and EVERYONE should be invited.

but why invite ALL people to a BDSM play space on outdoor city streets if all they want to do is go to a LOVE PARADE? some of them might object. it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

some of them might object and BE VOCAL AND start trying to change the event itself, so that the event can adapt to the newcomer.

SF MET needs to embrace their own LOVE PARADE.

intentionally ignoring this seems like limited vision, especially for a city which is so progressively interested in creating global interest in itself?

okay, right, so let’s make up some numbers from what we were given.

basically, according to these numbers, 400K people visited the fair.

let’s say, based on what i saw, some 300,000 of these 400K (notice how liberal i’m being. in reality, i’d imagine that only about 8% of the visiting population went through side entrances) were funneled through DONATION SUGGESTED!!!! entry points.

based on a 60% response to the ENHANCED FILING entrance where the SUGGESTED DONATION actually becomes a STRONGLY IMPLIED CONTRIBUTION FEE,

if even an average number of 40% of the people attending the fair made a contribution of 7$, we end up with $840,000.

that’s shy of a million dollars,

but it’s all floating cash (unaccounted for actual dollars), collected in buckets without receipts.

that’s a lot of floating cash, so you know there will be a crackdown on this soon.

the pride parade went bankrupt because FLOATING CASH is a code phrase for YOU CAN STEAL SOME OF THIS.

it is a magnet for professional embezzlers and thieves.

but that aside, let’s take our number of $840.000 of floating cash and tie it up with some less floating numbers.

we will start with the sale of booths.

www.folsomstreetevents.org/exhibitors-and-vendors/

if you check out the link, it’s blank, so we can’t really know what the actual sales figure for a booth is. we can know that there are single booths which are sold at a different price than double booths.

because we don’t know and apparently can’t know, let’s just say that it’s 300$ for a single booth and 500$ for a double booth. these numbers will be loosey goosey for sure, but we need to have something to put in.

there are over 200 booths in the fair. the link above has a map if you want to run the actual number of single booths versus double booths.

here is one block’s numbers for you — eighth street to ninth street.

48 booths on the one block
26 of those are accounted for by 11 groups who bought multiples booths.
22 are single booth representation

so around 55% of the booths were bought at 500$
and 45% of the booths were bought at 300$

unfairly but for the sake of the task, let’s apply this same percentage breakdown to the advertised booths at OVER 200 this year.

but to go low, again, let’s drop that number by 20 and use 180. we are purposely UNDERESTIMATING at every corner here so that when we actually have access to the “accurate” numbers, the numbers will be higher in reality, not lower.

okay, so we have 180 booths

we can round up and say that 100 of these booths paid 500 dollars and 80 of the booths paid 300 dollars.

this math is easy, we can do it in our eyes.

50,000$ and $24,000

grand total

74K$ for booth rentals.

so now we have 840K plus from entry “donations”

and we have 74K from booth rentals.

that's already $914,000 before you minus out the peanut-costs behind beer, barricades, free volunteer security and organizer’s costs/salaries.

and mind you, we are LITERALLY JUST GETTING STARTED on the actual economic gains.

this is the “portrait” of the artist. we are about to dive into the artist itself, not just the FaceTime moment. we’re going to backtrack the actual monied costs and establish the REALCOST winners.

let’s start with the FOOD AND BEVERAGE CARTEL.

first, the event has a built-in tiered system that encourages beverage consumption.

IF YOU DONATE, you subsequently get 2$ OFF of EVERY purchase of a liquid beverage.

BEER, which was sold in a two-tiered format, priced at 10$ and i think $16. it might’ve been 18$ but i just wasn’t paying attention because i can’t day drink. my body punishes me immediately for any kind of day drinking, which has made me very unpopular at gay brunch parties. it’s intellectually and socially challenging to be around raging partiers at eleven in the morning if all you do is smoke weed and try to eat luxury food…

but back on POINT.
noticeably, let’s address the two TECHNIQUES from tourism/crowd control school that have already been implemented.

firstly, the lined-file entry signifier & now IMPLIED donation that is accompanied by our gaming element of risk and chance — the two dollar drink discount on the variable number of beers you buy. that is, the more beer you buy, the more money you save.
secondly, the two size discount theory. that is, the single booth price charge vs. the double booth discount.

the best thing about all of this so far is that there is NO DISCRIMINATION involved.
but there will be.

that will start as FREE space that has been donated.

at the FOLSOM STREET FAIR, they call it “the playground.”
and laughingly, they call it an inclusive safe space, when all it really is

IS A POLITICAL LYNCH PIN that will give the city and every number of special interest groups the RIGHT to dismantle the mission statement of the fair — THE WORLD”S LARGEST LEATHER BONDAGE event.

so the playground is a space where trender ambiguous people can show off and lip sync but you can’t enjoy what they are up to unless you’re physically formed in a certain way or wish you were and aren’t faking it with some surgical dream that will usher you into a new world where only you know that you were once somebody else clicking your ruby red slippers together and making your MGM movie house dream fantasy tv-adoption theories come true.

the weird thing about gender that everyone should know is that it’s not real.

if you are brave enough to step up and be what you are as you are and want to be, the world you fear drops away and YOU become real. not the other way around.

anyone who is afraid of themselves will always externalize their “enemies.”

it’s instinctive.

so in five years, these special interest groups like ASK FIRST will deride the freedom and the liberty and danger and the trust of the BDSM essentials.

the separatist and shameful HIDEAWAY and misnamed exclusionists will wittle and carve their way into the fair wearing their comic-con and burning man gear and off cast clothes from the love parade.

they are looking for a SAFE space to be shameful.

and that’s really different than the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR.

the ideals of FOLSOM STREET FAIR were to bring out of hiding the deviations of the homosexual community when SEX PLAY becomes a central focus in a man’s life.

and HOMOSEXUALS are men who have sex with men.

that’s not a special interest group. it’s very physical and it’s athletic and it’s not about forming relationships the way that heterosexuals bevy and barter their lies and bulsht in order to self-protect and still get laid.

that’s NOT HOMOSEXUAL.

homosexuals don’t negotiate like that. they negotiate about the action.

and to try to make this kind of thing A PLACE FOR ALL, is homophobic.

it just is.

and if that is hard to understand, i can’t really enlighten this topic anymore, so i’ll just move back to the money…

IT WAS SUPER HOT THIS SUNDAY AT THE FAIR> record temps for all.

so there was a lot of liquid consumption going on.

i donated 5 bucks to the cause and had a $1.25 retail/street value juice.

that means $3.75 of fake money went into the beverage cartel’s pocket — remember, i already gave $1.25 to the retail street, so this is straight UP MONEY SHOT cash. it’s a collection/availability fee to the attendee.

and i’ll say this, at my fair, i would offer FREE WATER and i would OFFER people who really want to volunteer, to bring these same products or get corporations to give away free products that are just as wonderful as the competition and SHARE THEM FREELY with anyone who is thirsty.

lol.
but there should always be FREE WATER.

stick it to the cattle industry if you disagree and stop blaming human consumption of water when the drought is a manufactured attempt for upscaling the costs of water and privatizing it.

wake the fuk up, people.
nestle buys 1 million liters of water for 4 dollars, bottles it, brands it, distributes it, retails it for 99 cents of more and makes 55 million$ in profits after gushy payouts and all??

oh. shit. really?

anyway, because IT ISN'T MY GOAL in ANY WAY to disparage the industries which foist food and water bills on us, and in full compliance with veggie libel laws from the PATRIOT ACT, i disown any and all attachment to the importance of any of my statements. i’m just an artist and a philosopher who likes to do word problems

and, for the record, i make the most concentrated effort to USE THEIR numbers, not just for the “truth” value of identifying with their system and their numbers (though the veggie laws themselves are UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND OUTRAGEOUSLY ANTI-AMERICAN), but because they are at least tangible numbers.

i can’t MAKE THIS SHIT UP and it isn’t my intention to do anything but represent the numbers into word arrangements that make sense.

i’m like the weather woman.
you’re not going to send her to prison for suggesting that another one of our new and fantastic super storms has been started off the coast of florida or texas and will now destroy another city so that it can be rebuilt for global tourism…

anyway, the NUMBERS PLEASE:

out of 400,000 visitors, as it was so scorching hot and the beverages lines were constant steady streams of income collation, let’s estimate THAT EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAD ONE $10 BEVERAGE.

in this number, let’s also assume that every one could take advantage of the discount of buying two or more.

so 400,000 times 8$

here, with this flimsy and completely deflated example of actual sales we find a rather large number:

3.2 million bucks.

i’m not even going to count food. that’s just hazy variables.

but they made money selling food as well.
i’m going to pretend it’s not even a factor, but obviously, they, too, made money. i just don’t know any prices and don’t really care. beverage sales have a much higher profit margin and a way lower overhead.

so, the onsite money intake of the fair with booths and entry donations and a HUGELY underestimated statistic of beverage sales has us at 4 MILLION DOLLARS for one event.

(all of our ECONOMIC studies so far are the actual event itself. the shadows, where MOST OF THE MONEY IS GENERATED, do not happen onsite.

________

OFFSITE ECONOMIC SHADOWS

economic shadows are the unaccounted BUT VISIBLE AND TRACEABLE elements that surround transactions.

for instance, if you go into a store in san francisco and you buy a scarf that cost $99, how can two people pay the following costs for the same scarf?

the local person ends up with all taxes and fees of life, paying 299$

and the out of town person ended up paying 999$ for the same object.

how can it be?

i know, it sounds like a riddle, but i’ll explain it.

the first person lives and works in a downtown neighborhood. she/he has a flat where she/he lives and pays rent for their tiny little shared bedroom in a flat or home or wherever.

she/he shops in the city and travels in the city and does all sorts of ordinary city things. their daily rent is about 60$ and expenses for the rest of the day averaged about $135 including the $99 for the scarf and the daily cost of having an unlimited muni travel pass.

she/he had an economic shadow for the day of $195 -- based on the scarf purchase as the focus point of spending.

in our story, the second person is a TOURIST.

the second person is already paying rent wherever they are from. this rent we will say is the less than the person who lives in san francisco, duh!!!! way less :)

but they’re still paying rent for their apartment even if they’re not there. their rent is about 20$ per night

the second person is ALSO renting a room in a hotel for $150 for each night.

the second person ALSO flew to san francisco on vacation.

the flight was $500 for a roundtrip.
the second person is in the city for three days.
that’s $166 bucks for each day as an average.

the second person took private transport from the airport on arrival and departure. let’s low ball it and say that it ONLY costs 30 dollars round trip.
that’s $10 each day.

during the second person’s stay, they used lyft to get around and spent 60$ on rides. $20 per day.

this same person had a free breakfast at the hotel, but bought a $4 coffee and had a $17 dollar lunch, gave a 3 dollar tip and then had dinner that evening costing 30$. the food intake total for this second person’s day was $54.

down on the embarcadeo, the second person also bought 200$ worth of knick knack gifts from the vendors in front of the ferry building at the base of market street.

this second person had also come to town to attend the folsom street fair.

so they made a visit to mr. S as well and bought an outfit for the fair. it was 45$

the second person was in SoMa after dinner and paid 20$ in cover charges at bars and spent 40$ on drinks.

the second person’s day kept on going after midnight, but that’s where our economic shadow for that day stopped — the night before the fair.

so let’s compare these economic shadows that surround each one of our two individuals:


individual number one, who lives in san francisco and also attended the fair spent a WHOPPING:

two hundred bucks, for the sake of numbers i spent an extra five on something of this person.

and TWO HUNDRED dollar days are EXPENSIVE> this is an EXPENSIVE city. one of the most in the country now.

a lot of city people spend WAY more per day and have extraordinarily lavish lifestyles. but with average room rentals being so extravagant, that tends to be the real expense for a lot of less monied folks.

as it stands, an economic shadow like this requires 6 grand per month.

okay, so we’ve got our first shadow at $200 per day.

now let’s look at the second person. the second person’s grand total for one day is:


170 + 166 + 10 + 20 + 54 + 45 + 200 + 20 + 40 = $904

NOW, ADD THE original scarf to finish the equation, VOILA

$1,003!!!!!

and that is how you charge 99 dollars and 999 dollars for the same scarf.

and that is how business works. next year, that same scarf will cost 149 and 1399 if things work out the way you are supposed to work out.

SF MET, baby!!!!!!


anyway, i feel like i’m gossiping about real people.

let me get back to my point.

the first person hadn’t planned to go to the fair this year.

they were tired of the way the fair was always the same and the twister game and the show offery.

she/he bought a bottle of champagne for $25 to bring to the brunch, they all decided to go to the fair.

so the townperson donated the required TEN bucks (sf people like to participate and can be generous with goods as well as kindnesses — though there’s a ton of criminal insanity that gets tolerated by these same manners of being…), so they got the drink discount.

she/he had two beers at ten dollars a piece, eight after the discount. spent $16, “saved” four on the admission price wink wink — drink more, save more. historically, us gays have loved this kind of economic challenge. but we’re communist about we — it’s a right, not a taxation. we made the BEER BUST FAMOUS.

we as a community are the biggest abuses of alcohol and drugs and anything to distract us from the tragedy and persecution of an indescribable group of men who merely have sex with each other and then must be condemned to that status forever coming-out, trapped in a trap. more beer please.
oh, sex is now boring, give me some drugs and let’s keep playing!

anyway, sorry, got a bit lost.

our intown hero walked to the fair after having a late breakfast at some friends’ place. onsite costs at the fair in total were $26 plus the champagne purchase of $25 for brunch. all expenses (the 51$ and for the rest of the day were minor and our intown hero’s daily life total was once again a rather average $200 including the fair.

which is a two day total of $400


our tourist hero — one who brings a much larger economic shadow to town — skipped the free breakfast and met friends for brunch and drinks for a total of $42

we’ve already factored our traveling/lyft total, so today’s share of that is $20

our tourist hero pays the $10 donation 95% of the time. by its nature, TOURISM is rich people giving money away to poor people in exchange for passage and favors. locals live much more frugally on average than TOURISTS.

inside the fair, the TOURIST stays three hours and drinks one drink per hour.
all three drinks are nonalcoholic.
they are 3 dollars apiece.

with the discount, the TOURIST drinks $9 of beverages.

our TOURIST/second person exits the fair having spent $19.

in this scenario, both characters leave the fair and live their lives.

i won’t make up more math about their days. we can just use the details we have, no need to add more and we already have daily averages determined.

HERE ARE TOTALS for the day, which at first seem desperately obvious, but they aren't:


in town local pays out: $26 + 200/day living expenses

out of town hero pays out: $19 + $407/day living expenses
ADD the previous day's total and this person's TWO DAY ECONOMIC SHADOW is: $1004 + $426 = $1430

in COMMODIFIED TERMS, the tourist's expenses are WORTH a GRAND more than the local's output.


now ask yourself this:

which one is a bigger economic shadow?

which one spent less at the fair than the other?


and this is why the "city" is now becoming a "metropolis".

new rules, new games.


we should demand a love parade...
END PART ONE
maybe i'll write part two when the REAL numbers hit the street.


LASTLY, i'd like to end with a suggestion.


LET'S INVITE THE WORLD's LOVE PARADE TO CELEBRATE IN OUR new metropolis.

CULT -- american horror story & the power of hate -- HELLO MY NAME IS EVIL, scott richard

CULT -- american horror story & the power of hate -- HELLO MY NAME IS EVIL, scott richard


brad falchuk and ryan murphy are a refeminized version of jacobean and restoration torture & tragedy spilling into the 21st century

they constantly "break" tv.
which is both refreshing and disturbing for hundreds of reasons.

but honestly, we have to take the old school rules realistically, as these two have done.
history matters, a bit.

however, you can’t have it both ways ALL the time -- it's either comedy or tragedy, that's how the day goes long.

sometimes, yes, the comedy can be tragic.
and yes, sometimes tragedy, too, can be very funny.
but you can't always keep them together and in the end,
the END ITSELF determines the dominant nature.

and as mentioned, ultimately, something is either a comedy or a tragedy.

there aren’t other genres.
well, SNUFF FILMS, but it seems like the united states is falling in love with this "not new" but highly shunned form of film making.

but back to comedy and tragedy -- you can merge and mix them, but there’s always just two spirits at play or war, as the day is long and falls into night.
arguing against our imprisoned condition and dependence upon storytelling is futile.

as the offspring of todd haynes, these grown up boys have been clearly raised upon the MURDER ART stories that infested the original impetus for “tales from the crypt” and the graphic novels which have given us other offspring like DEXTER.

so while there is rarely anything original about our neo-jacobists, they are still mixing the rather harmless but lethal beauty that haynes creates with the “artistic” brutality of using posed corpses as decoration and proppery.

seriously, falchuk and murphy are the new LENI REIFENSTAHL of our era and their choice of subject matter is constantly in line with the NEW WORLD ORDER MOVEMENT of divide and conquer, which this show will do. it is a simulated revolution of sorts. it's a practice run on the formation of invisible gangs that can/will/or already are terrorizing the lives of individuals.

"fear isn't like a virus. when fear finds more hosts, it gets stronger, scarier."

if trump had a real team of people who knew what they were doing, they would hire these guys as their PROPAGANDISTS. these guys would race circles around the sorry ass losers that are currently stunting and shunting the dumptruckpresident around the hippodrome.

"great men and women have been weaponizing fear forever. but what all those men had was a great message, someone with a pulpit and a microphone, someone to give that fear a name."

because that’s what they are in every sense of the word.

"if you get the world scared enough, they will set the world on fire for us."

the material fashion and products that appear on this show would fill a HOME DEPOT.

the SYMBOLISM and ICONOGRAPHY that appears in any given season could take up a section of a pop-up halloween store. one day, each season will be represented in such stores.

the grafting of terror and shame and horror and solidarity all mixed together will make this season’s CULT more powerful than just a television show.

why? mostly because the rule is that tv is supposed to be shitty, menial and lethally harmless on the intake.

and these guys constantly violate the rules of television. it’s what makes their work constantly more interesting than other "creators" and producers.

these two work on the dirty edge.

they carve out the bone by scraping it and dulling their butcher tools in ways that would upset all the masters.

and even three episodes into this season and it’s clear that rockne s. o’bannon isn’t going to get the credit he deserves for tapping into the idea of using television in a HARMFUL way.

his show CULT in 2012 was so powerful that it was canceled shortly after it began to air.

the reason it was powerful is because it promoted this theory that IF enough people watched a show like GAME OF THRONES and the creators of the show embedded secret games that the viewers could watch, that eventually a “cult” would develop.

and cults are feared because they have the power of UNITING people in ways that create gangs and miniature oligarchies.

real oligarchies have longer histories and can protect their power. cults are usually “intellectual startups” that revolve around a charismatic individual.

in general, the actual “philosophy of most cults is fictional at best and usually fantastical. for most folks, there's on "real" explaining to account for why this kind of MIND BAIT is so compelling for certain people, but the media loves it.
and their followers eat it up.

think patty hearst and charlie manson.
think osama bin laden and saddam hussein.

then think about all the unrelated dumb stuff that has filtered into our society as a “horror” story that was mostly just the rain on a duck’s back, spilling into the lake water of the american consciousness.
think of all the duct tape and saran wrap.
all the lies.
all the misinformation that became "real" just because no one ever questioned it or sought true answers.

but let’s be honest, falchuk and murphy have realized ONE VERY IMPORTANT THING in their lessons from the theater of the jacobean & restoration days — GRAPHIC VIOLENCE and MURDER and MAYHEM may not have been the winning choice for the masses of the day, but there was and will ALWAYS be a huge market for peddling it.

wrap it up in CONTEMPORARY history that no one is willing to touch with a ten foot pole — THE FACE FKING AND DATE RAPING OF AMERICA by the banks and the fake president.

how can people resist?
they never have before.

so the most important thing about this sow and the work of these guys is that DROVES OF OTHERS will instantly copy it and make their own shows.

expect all the networks and adjunct fake networks to put out their version of “the story of trump”.

and this is how tv goes bigger than life and destroys democracy and perverts spiritual progression by fomenting civil war.

yippee!
SNUFF FILM ART GOES VIRAL with date raping strategies of coersion and hate.
very catchy.
updated with SURVEILLANCE and gangskillz, who the fk knows who crazy this will get by the time it ends?


and don't fail to miss the presence of PHARMACOPEIA. it has a genuine presence throughout the show.

laughably and MOST CONCLUSIVELY, the important thing to take away from all of this is that falchuk and murphy have pulled off a real heist for the OLIGARCHS who are playing the real roles in U.S. politicks.

fantastical SCARE SHT SHOWS like this fail to remind us that the REAL THUGS in our country don't have blue hair and paint graffiti of clowns on peoples' walls.

they live in HUGE homes and are driven around and are sick of all the luxuries that life can provide. they toy with humans and ruin lives with their economic politics.

they aren't tiny little "cult" leaders.
that's just a red herring.
falchuk and murphy are just hiding the greater truths with simple fear.

will it work out?
how many horror stories will they be able to cram into this season?
stay tuned.

Brown Pelican ~ Haiku

Brown Pelican ~ Haiku

This is something I processed quite awhile ago and never posted anywhere. I made some changes and started to write a poem.

For awhile I played with the idea of how these big seabirds coasted effortlessly along the shoreline tacking, as it were, with the wind hitting them at right angles. In this pic the end of the inside wing is tipped down like a rudder while the outside wing is lifted like a sail.

The amazing thing about the flight of birds is that it is pure instinctive perfection. They read the wind in the moment making timely adjustments effortlessly. This is particularly noticeable in the more ponderous efficient flyers like vultures and pelicans.

What a joy our life would be if we could likewise negotiate the currents of human affairs. Well I kept trying to write a poem until the thought came to me to just make it true to the moment. The title is important because it is a new place of sudden discoveries.
