Does anyone know what Jimmy is talking about?

The following typical threads that plague martial arts sites will get moved here if not just deleted: 1 - My style is better than Your style" - 2 - "Internal & External" - 3 - Personal attacks - 4 - Threads that start well, but degenerate into a spiral of nonsense.

Yeah, I'm sure Jimmy would love Lovecraft Country.

yeah -- i have no idea what you are talking about ....

i feel like i am missing out on some kind of mystical secrets that are beyond my puny human mind's ability to comprehend...

i mean i could come up with some meaning - but i think it would just be a reflection of my mind
and i think it would be safer to not expose anyone to that kind of weirdness...

Jimmy never uses words - he exists only in the dimension of symbols.

The Jimmy that can be spoken of is not the true Jimmy.

It's all about the conspiracy theory linking strange images that use up tremendous amounts of bandwidth in order to bring down the 5G technology towers that are spreading viruses of every type across the World. As proof I offer this from the seinfeld scripts site quoting the "real" Jimmy as he links Kramer [obviously a 5G tower symbol because of his impressive height] to all of his own troubles.

"Jimmy: "That's the guy who sidelined Jimmy." Kramer: "What!" Jimmy: "That's the guy who took the bread out of Jimmy's mouth. Jimmy's out . of work because of you.. Jimmy punches Kramer in the mouth. Jimmy: "Jimmy wants a piece of Kramer..(fighting ensues and Jimmy gets . taken out by hotel security) Jimmy: "JIMMY'S GONNA GET YOU KRAMER!!.

Jimmy speaks to us in visual puns and rebus epigrams. I do not understand half of them. I am not sure I get one fourth of them. I'm sure there is solid artistic intent behind the rest of them, but I wish he would explain sometimes.

There is an old epigram in the arts, "To overshoot the mark is to miss." Sometimes--no, most times--he goes clear over my head.
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

For example, I read this as "Save money on car insurance by threatening to strangle your agent,"

And,

"Any child can grow up to be president."

Jimmy posts a video he likes and pairs it with complimentary or incongruous images depending on their aesthetics. Think of it like a deconstructed collage. The snake in hand in the photo mirrors the molotov in hand in the video. They are both dangerous but strangely attractive at the same time.
