'The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz' A mix tape by Eugene B. Sims

Well it seems that I have to go out and find some nose hair clippers…

How’s that for an opening line?

Do they really make them?

It just sounds like something made up or like one of those cheaply made and produced pieces of crap like Fred Sanford’s “Whopper Chopper”. It just doesn’t sound like a real device. It sounds like something that only works to separate me from my money.

I’ve been told that I don’t spend enough time looking in the mirror, but the last time I did… I found that distressing sign of the approaching “golden years”… Prominent hair sticking out of the nostrils.

I simply cannot have it. Oh sure… I can have oodles of it growing out of my face, but not streaming out of my nose. A mustache ride is one thing, but I can’t be in the company of a lady while my nose hair is tickling her… It’s gross!

Is this common once you reach the age of 40?

I can get along with the out-of-the-blue aches and pains. I can deal with my eyes getting worse where I have to hold things out to read them. But I’m still getting pimples! Yeah! I’ve got one of the most active T-zones ever… You ladies know what I’m talking about.

It must be one of God’s many little jokes…

I need to ask someone who isn’t easily grossed out by my aging body to check my ears for protruding hair. I’m thinking that hair usually shows up somewhere around the age of 50, but I better be checking now. Hell, the nose hair thing just kind of snuck up on me. It was right under my nose and it took me some time to notice. Jesus Chrysler Dodge.

I watched an odd little film recently… What The Bleep Do We Know!?. My friend Leslie let me borrow it. She knew the agnostic A-Hole that I was and now she’s seeing the budding believer of all things possible that I’ve become.

With the recent crossing of my spiritual line in the sand, I found What The Bleep Do We Know!? interesting. It also makes me look at things a little differently. Reality isn’t all that real. It can be manipulated just by using the power of our brains. Reality is as unlimited as quantum physics.

They also show how the use of words can be very powerful…. Take the research of Masaru Emoto. He would tape written words on glasses of distilled water, leave them overnight, and take pictures with some kind of special microscope. The positive words made for beautiful pictures of the water’s molecules… But when he taped something like “I want to kill you” onto distilled water, the molecules created ugly and violent images. You can read about some of it HERE.

The film may come across as a little too new agey… But I sincerely believe that for every action, there is a reaction. Even if your action is taken against an inanimate object.

Although I haven’t seen The Secret yet, I have a feeling that both DVD’s run along the same line. I’ve got The Secret sitting on my entertainment center right now. Kristina purchased several and she forced me to borrow it. I am no longer all that skeptical.

    You can pick up nose hair clippers at Wal-Mart or Walgreens. I just had to get Kevin a pair, and he is only 36..so maybe that gives you hope.

    Don't clip them--let them be. Nothing feels more like freedom than your nose hairs blowing in the wind.

  3. Now I'm going to wonder if every guy I see with nose hair is you.

    Hey there,

    Ask your friend Leslie if she knows anything about Ramtha, the enlightened one......

    Perhaps before you do so you may want to google what the bleep and salon mag, or the willmette weekly as well as any number of physics forum that discuss the bogus nonsense in the film.

    Perhaps you may want to read some of what Dr. Alpert, from Columbia university (he was one of the scientists interviewed in the film) had to say about how his interview was twisted to make it look like he agreed with the views of the film makers when indeed he had been 180 degrees opposed to it.

    Have a look at the many articles debunking Mr, Emotos water "experiments"

    All these things may have created interesting viewing for those who do not have much info on the subject, but are however, just not so.

    Pull the curtain on this one, you will see that the wizard is not a wizard, but just the snake oil salesman with a lot of gagets!!

    Still digging,


  5. Thanks, Diggingdeeper!

    I tend to take everything with a grain of salt, but I must admit that I agree with a lot of what's presented in the film.
