World Tallest Man Makes NBA Player Look Like a Middle Schooler

That is Minnesota Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic, a player who stands 6’11”, but is dwarfed by the amused Vovkovinskiy, World Tallest Man.

The silly part is that we often refer to players like Pekovic as big men. Oh, how misguided that label was.

This is more than a tale about a gentle giant who is amusing to look at (and no doubt draws stares and giggles where ever he goes).

There is strife behind the smile of this NBA fan.

Let’s begin with the simplest of questions, the answer to which has eluded Vovkovinskiy for far too long. Where does one buy comfortable shoes?

You can’t go down to the local Foot Locker and ask if they have anything in a size 22, the smallest size Vovkovinskiy has recently been measured at. Or if they have a 25, the biggest measurement, via The Huffington Post.

What the hell!! I go out to grab a smoke and get away from the rubes at my booth for a minute, come back and find I’ve been disappeared! just like what’s her butt from way north of here. That does it. If this happens again we’re both outta here, no second chances.

Eddie, crazy is all relative. Unless it’s crazy paving, in which case it’s a good way to use up broken slabs.

Crazy has also been around for a long time. At least 30 years according to my calculations.

” Anyone who has read Aristotle’s Ethics and has also read modern moral philosophy must have been struck by the great contrasts between them. The concepts which are prominent among the moderns seem to be lacking, or at any rate buried or far in the background, in Aristotle. Most noticeably, the term “moral” itself, which we have by direct inheritance Aristotle, just doesn’t seem to fit, in its modern sense, into an account of Aristotelian ethics. Aristotle distinguishes virtues as moral and intellectual. Have some of what he calls “intellectual” virtues what we should call a “moral” aspect? It would seem so; the criterion is presumably that a failure in an “intellectual” virtue—like that of having good judgment in calculating how to bring about something useful, say in municipal government‑-may be blameworthy. But-‑it may reasonably be asked‑-cannot any failure be made a matter of blame or reproach ? Any derogatory criticism, say of the workmanship of a product or the design of a machine, can be called blame or reproach. So we want to put in the word “morally” again: sometimes such a failure may be morally blameworthy, sometimes not. Now has Aristotle got this idea of moral blame, as opposed to any other? If he has, why isn’t it more central? There are some mistakes, he says, which are causes, not of involuntariness in actions but of scoundrelism, and for which a man is blamed. Does this mean that there is a moral obligation not to make certain intellectual mistakes? Why doesn’t he discuss obligation in general, and this obligation in particular? If someone professes to be expounding Aristotle and talks in a modern fashion about “moral” such-and-such he must be very imperceptive if he does not constantly feel like someone whose jaws have somehow got out of alignment: the teeth don’t come together in a proper bite. [ ]

In present-day philosophy an explanation is required how an unjust man is a bad man, or an unjust action a bad one; to give such an explanation belongs to ethics; but it cannot even be begun until we are equipped with a sound philosophy of psychology. For the proof that an unjust man is a bad man would require a positive account of justice as a “virtue.” This part of the subject-matter of ethics, is however, completely closed to us until we have an account of what type of characteristic a virtue is—a problem, not of ethics, but of conceptual analysis—and how it relates to the actions in which it is instanced: a matter which I think Aristotle did not succeed in really making clear. For this we certainly need an account at least of what a human action is at all, and how its description as “doing such-and-such” is affected by its motive and by the intention or intentions in it; and for this an account of such concepts is required. ” ~ G. E. M . Anscombe

Modern Moral Philosophy ( 1958 )

Acquainted with the Night I have been one acquainted with the night. I have walked out in rain—and back in rain. I have outwalked the furthest city light. I have looked down the saddest city lane. I have passed by the watchman on his beat And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain. I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet When far away an interrupted cry Came over houses from another street, But not to call me back or say good-bye; And further still at an unearthly height, A luminary clock against the sky Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right. I have been one acquainted with the night. Robert Frost

poem 362

I am walking through the furniture consignment shop

enjoying the discarded dinosaurs all lined up .

strolling along when something catches my eye .

She asks ” what is that ? is that Georgian ? “

It was a Neo Classical breakfront

painted a flat grey like a mothballed Navy ship .

A ghost waiting to be adopted .

” It’s Neo classical ” i said

” That color is trash ” she said , and walked on ahead .

The rails were so thin and delicate .

I stopped for a bit to examine it .

‘Trash ? ’......i thought…...Neo – Classical ….trash .?

Neo -Trashical …..... i thought….. that would be as good a name as

any for my up coming series .

Neo-Trashical ….... will do for a title .

I’m an artist of course , I have to be inventive within the trend .

I have to be clever and cute in presentation , right ?

I have to use my hip logic , with catchy titles ,

wrap them in arcane references and inventions ,

striving for the convention of the unconventional , right ?

Racing to find the dysfunctional ‘new’ that some Neo – Expressionist has overlooked .

And fill that niche . Become famously enigmatic , and sought out by the

adoring critics ( with turned out pockets ) and be a profitable mystery .

Divide that mystery up in parcels , and sell that phucking mystery ,right ?

I will line these mysteries up on a table , anywhere , and wait for you .

I will infer how important these mysteries are .

I will agree with every thing you have to say when you approach ,

I will canvass you like a Bible salesman ,

or an insurance agent , whatever it takes .

I will hawk you like a side show carney as you stumble away :

” Wait , wait ! ........buy into my dream ! It’s so affordable and it fits you so well ! “

I will line these crumbs up in a gallery , anywhere , and wait for you .

We will sip wine , I will tell you what is confusing, what is passe .

Lecturing you on the profound and irrelevant ,as if I had a clue , like a parrot .

I will not agree outright with anything you have to say ,

I will defer and be demur , until I can smell gold , right ?

Then I will confess how important we are , suddenly how interesting

You have become , adoring you …...like an surveyor .

I will fill our glasses , I will become drunk on secret disappointments ,

but I will smile at you until it hurts .

It’s our last ..fast.. run at the final furlong , all sweat and bloody lungs ,

a clamor of sharp hooves and flying mud .

(2013) ~moment

I usually play that when I am sad . Ten or fifteen minutes of crying…..which is about all I indulge myself….

and then I feel better ,eddie . I will play ” Still ” and sing along as if I am sending a message to my wife .
Then i will play ” all in love is fair ” and imagine that she is reminding me to be strong . Then i play the
adagio . It is just something I began doing to cope ( not as often these days ) .

Neo Trashical

These works that I will be showing in Neo Trashical

will all be original designs that I have been working on for the past year .

Some will feature lighting effects , hardwoods ,some mixed medium .

These are not the kind of projekts one can find in a pattern book , or originate by downloading

from the Webb and trace and cut . Nothing wrong with that , the point is…....well

that will become evident as it progresses . I can say that you

have never seen work quite like these on LJ’s . I’ll be posting some of these in Europe / Russia .

The showing will be planned for next year ,possibly in Austin or Dallas .

Interspersed will be some other stuff . some funny , some romantic .

In just a few days I am going to begin . In just a few days I am going to

retire to my Home Page and will ’ virtually ’ have nothing to say .

I will always respond to a private message and welcome yours .

I will NOT comment on any projekt in the Neo Trashical series for any reason , on the

projekt page or anywhere publicly on this site . Comments themselves may become

a part of the last one of the series and I don’t want to influence any discussion

or feelings . I will not read any comments on these works until they are all finished , so that no one feels

I am ignoring their comments publicly .
