My Instagram and Twitter Account

July 16, 2023By Barry BlissMy Life

Never had either until recently. It’s a bit strange. I put some photos of food on my Instagram page (is it called a “page”?) and somehow some friends, etc. found out about it and “followed” me. Then you have to decide whether to “follow” them back. If you pick some and not others, are the … Read More

My Road To Recovery

May 17, 2023By Barry BlissHealth, My Life

My inner circle know some details, but basically, beginning in around 2019,  I made the mistake of choosing to under eat and I developed anorexia. Over the years, I’ve gotten better, gotten worse, but never really committed to healing, until now. This morning I stepped on the scale, knowing the reading would be low, but … Read More

Off the Cuff Book Review: Bright Green Lies

April 7, 2023By Barry BlissReviews

Bright Green Lies is a book by Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith, and Max Wilbert. It is great. I’ve read a few books by Derrick over the years, and while I disagree with his take on some things, his critique of civilization is one of the best and deepest I have ever seen. Lierre Keith wrote … Read More

April 5, 2023By Barry BlissMusic

 Yep, I have been over on Twitter, posting.  At any rate, I have a new album out. I recorded it with Brian Speaker (SpeakerSonic) at the board, in Brooklyn, yesterday. It was an all day affair, which included a mid-day walk to Whole Foods Market for food and a sit in the sun. The … Read More

Twitter, and also, My Claim Against NYC

March 23, 2023By Barry BlissMy Life

I have a twitter page. It is @barrynowbliss. Whether I will keep it up or not I do not know. Maybe. Long story, but in essence I filed a claim against NYC asking for back pay for 13 of the ongoing (18, so far) months I was banned from working due to their shot … Read More

I Plan To Record a New Album in About 6 Weeks.

February 25, 2023By Barry BlissMusic, My Life

14 songs, coming in at around 40 minutes total. (Unless something changes.) I’d set a recording date for next week but my go-to man (Brian Speaker) lives in Germany and will not be here until April. A lot of the songs are about current events, at least on the surface, so the sooner the better. … Read More

Link – Seymour Hersh: How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline

February 9, 2023By Barry BlissCurrent Affairs/Politics

I do not know about many journalists, but I have heard of Seymour Hersh. He has a great reputation and has been around for over 50 years. He now has a Substack account, but I found this article reprinted on Scheerpost, the place where Chris Hedges also posts regularly. I found the article interesting. … Read More

January 31, 2023By Barry BlissMy Life, Philosophy

I was surprised to find out recently that I do not have a copy of the first CD I released in NYC in 2000. I’ve no digital copy either. As for journals, I have regularly gotten rid of them. Not that I have always kept a journal, but when I have I’ve not held onto … Read More

Answer, in Regards to Transcendental Meditation ™

January 17, 2023By Barry BlissPhilosophy

Part of the question I was asked included the info that it costs between $600 and $800 for a TM™ session, at least where this person lives. I could be wrong about some of this, but this was my off-the-cuff reply: ——————————————————————————————————————- There is absolutely no reason to go to one of those teachers. The … Read More

Beliefs, or Lack Thereof

December 29, 2022By Barry BlissPhilosophy

 1. I do not believe in anything. I believe in nothing. 2. I like a lot of the Jesus story in the Bible, but do not believe he rose from the dead. I believe he now rests in peace, as he deserves. 3. I worship nothing. I have sometimes personified that nothing, calling it the … Read More
