In my work, seriousness was essential, otherwise the jokes fall flat.

In my work, jokes were essential, otherwise the seriousness would dissipate.


Why do I compare a joke to a poorly-made cake?
Why do I think seriousness is a gas (a form of matter, ungraspable, boundless, evanescent, chaotic and ghostlike[1])?

I am greatly irritated by the contemporary use of “swag” as derived from “swagger” (AFAICT).

As far as I’m concerned, you’ve only got “the swag” if you’ve got a bag containing the plate, silverware, and candlesticks.

Although not explicitly referenced, I would not be surprised to see Taffy with swag.

Bonus points for wearing the optional domino-mask.

Here are some notes on the origin of the word ‘swag’ that generally agree with me (ignore everything in the article that doesn’t agree with me).

My daughter likes Barbie. I suppose there are some good reasons for that. I am hoping this is one of those.

Czech Radio (a song in three parts)

 

part one

part two

shitphone, a love story (okay, okay, its a phone, not a radio).

 

part three

I was living in Budapest and volunteering at Artpool in 1993, where I saw St.Auby’s Czech radio as part of the _3x4_ exhibit. I had it explained to me in person, and at a post-opening dinner, his toddler-daughter fed me my salad piece-by-piece.

22 years later, I am reading an article on cheap smartphones, and see the czech-radio. Dumb bricks. Only this time, who is fooled?

This blog is not (necessarily) dead. I’ve just been busy.

And since Dropbox is blocked at my new place of employment, and my primary interaction on here was gifs-via-dropbox…. well, I’ve been quieter. Here.

I’ve been active elsewhere, on-and-off.

But, for old times sake, some gif-links!

Continued from bad.art : the horrible, wonderful world of Harry Stephen Keeler.

 

Here’s Keeler’s on explanation of his webwork-plot technique: The Mechanics (and Kinematics) of Web-Work Plot Construction

 

10 years ago, I missed the obvious: Wikipedia:Harry_Stephen_Keeler and the Gutenberg text of John Jones’s Dollar.

 

The Harry Stephen Keeler Society points us to 4 e-texts of Keeler novels, including an alternate source for ‘’John Jones’s Dollar.

 

Roger Ebert wrote an interesting post on Keeler back in 2010, that also includes a nifty book-cover-gallery and bizarre quotes.
