In August of 2012 Cane Caldo exploded into the manosphere with what was, as far as I know, the first guest post at Dalrock. I had been seeing evidence of Cane’s presence for a few months prior to his guest post in various comboxes. he may have been around for ten years before August of 2012. I just didn’t know it.
One thing about Cane is you can’t ignore him. He is known to be where he is…know what i mean? Not important, this isn’t a psychoanalysis of anyone.
I think Ive mentioned seeing a Dalrock post back when he first started, liking it, but being unable to recall his blog’s name. It was two or three years later when I started consistently reading and commenting there. Dalrock’s even temperament doesn’t normally coexist in someone who can make an analysis with specificity, detail, rigor and yet always readable. Those things do not often coexist in the same person. But this is not an analysis of Dalrock either.
Over the last couple of days I opened Cane’s and Dalrock’s blogs, respectively, during separate internet sessions, and found that both of them are away, both have disabled comments, and both will be back soon.
I can’t hold back my revelation any longer. Folks………………………………………
Cane and Dalrock are the same person!
Do you ever notice strange things about some song lyrics decades after the song was popular in your youth or early adulthood. Have you noticed, too, that things you found profound 30 years ago are pedestrian now? Finally things that we may have missed back then are clear now.
True randomness….I was getting something from a shelf in my closet. A CD jewel box fell from the very top and landed on the floor. It was a John Cougar Mellencamp CD. More randomness, did he get his name hyphenated? I know a man who hyphenated his name along with his wife. So he was John Smith Jones, and she was Jane Jones Smith. Ground breakers….that was in the 80’s.
On the CD that fell there is a fairly well known song called “Jackie Brown”. In it Cougar sings:
What ugly truths freedom brings
And it hasn’t been very kind to you.
Is this a reference to race? I doubt an Indiana white boy is singing about slavery, but if he is a liberal , liberals cannot get enough attention trying to make slavery their issue. Lets peal off into more randomness… This is why you hear movie stars blathering on and on that they “advocate” for Africa. What does that even MEAN anyway? Advocate is a word with real utility in a few cases. Lawyers,a medical ethicist, perhaps a lobbyist …but these are paid advocates. Apparently even I can be an advocate. I can even advocate for Africa. Now….is it not absurd to say one is an advocate foe an entire continent? Can something tangible be accomplished? Of course not. But only meanies are not advocates for Africa. I’m a meany. Back the lyrics.
If its not white guilt manifested, the more likely meaning is more disturbing and frankly stupid. Its a bleeding heart cry that under “freedom” some people don’t do as well as others. So we animate “freedom” and make it unkind. Its not hard to figure what would be kind then is it?
Last random thing. Its a wonder women are not robbed or accosted more often. Bless their precious hearts, they have almost no spacial awareness. Do this. Take a cart and walk the aisles of a grocer. Come across a woman furrowing at a can of soup. Her vision can be as little as 45 degrees to your line of approach. Well inside her range of vision, not her peripheral, rather her direct vision. When your cart is 1 inch from her hips she MAY look very surprised and move. More likely you will still have to ask. How do they make it through a day like that? Simple. men do what we are supposed to. We graciously accommodate and we protect. Doesn’t mean I have to like it.
Its a stretch to call this a post. But I’m advocating exactly that.
