Broken Pencil Theory? I’ve had it with that.

Wednesday, July 21st, 2004

And basically what happened is that those women who were arrested with young boys, children, in cases that have been recorded, the boys were sodomized, with the cameras rolling, and the worst above all of them is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking. [More….] This has been all over the blogs, especially the more political […]

Wide open (west)

Thursday, July 15th, 2004

There’s a longer entry I mean to write, but just for now, two pictures I took on Tuesday night (13th). They’re from a parking lot that has an adjacent empty historical building. Both are scheduled to be developed into an 8 story monster (to be called Bambu) that will be sited in a 3-(tops)-story downtown […]

Let it flow

Surely you didn’t think that Chris Locke‘s expertise could be limited to insights into Gonzo Marketing and New Age Folderol, did you? No, RageBoy also knows the fine art of fighting spills and chills with kitchen faucet sprayers, a long-lost counter-counter-counter technique he single-handedly and spontaneously revived when he faced an especially intractable foe. While […]

Thanks, Vernica!

I should have studied Library Science instead of Art History. For one thing, I could maybe get a job and make some money… Geez, what a concept. But for another, librarians are just so mega-brilliant: they have fact and methodology at their fingertips, and so very much depends upon the latter. If you want to […]

Crimes and cocktails

On a local note: instability is everywhere. I recently had a ceramic garden ornament, blue, egg-shaped, and about 40cm high, stolen off my front stoop. Even though I knew it wouldn’t yield results, I did report the theft. Here’s what the nice officer told me: theft of gardening utensils, garden ornaments (…gnomes, anyone?), garden hoses, […]

Books, blogs, etc.

According to a recent report by the National Endowment for the Arts, Literary Reading Is Declining Faster Than Before. The report puts the emphasis on literary, which would seem to exclude the non-fiction reading material I prefer. What category does Sebald’s Die Ringe des Saturn fall into? Or Austerlitz? Definitely fiction, literary writing, I would […]

Curious and curiouser

Can anyone explain the weirdness of referer stats to me? When, as has lately been the case, I don’t post anything for a long time (and let’s leave the why of that status quo out of the equation for now), my referer page shows porn site linkage after porn site linkage. Toying with the idea […]

The Merry Recluse considers Moral Philosophy and decides to put on Trousers

Thursday, July 1st, 2004

It’s rather odd to go through a depressive phase coupled with total loss of focus in writing, and have it be semi-public by virtue of its absence. It’s like having double-vision: I see the repeated false starts; the scattering off into different venues, meetings, committees; the pile of books I’ve been reading in lieu of […]
