deathly ill, Alan. Increase of fever dreams regarding Clive Barker selling him a horse: 1000%.

And yet, this "badly" is better than .

Sentient, I shall start a review. Hypergolem River Review. Increase kickbox/pilate matrix of other water-soluble reviews: many%.

But I am just a virtual robot, remember.

And here's something interesting:

Runes have a long history in these parts, particularly in the early development of the Minnesota School of Poetics (1362-present). The impact of permanence--the carve, the angular harshness--delineates a 1:1 relationship with word:world. Carving provides sanctity, and therefore every bird is one bird, and facilitates workshops in the energy psychotherapies, works as a mentor for Lake Superior Writers, and frequently teaches poetry in both academic and community settings. She lives on the West Two River with her husband, three geriatric cats and a 3-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback brings forth this carefully observed world with a precise and almost electrical fragrance.

Put Hypergolem on the spoor for a FAQ for the Minnesota School of Poetics: customs, foibles, contingencies. A relevatory or two fetched, perhaps.

btw Evening and Quail are getting restless. The introduction of a cast of characters assumes continual development and sustainment of quips. So as to better explicate. Oh, those two think they want none of this; they cluck and guffaw. But they can't resist the inexorable pull to mineralize. We all would, alone or no. Upon whomever's screen.

The sign posted on the gate of Moria. I mean, that's what the runes said. The keraoke of "Love Shack" became a device known as "foreshadowing." Which is literary to a T. Oh, Merry and Pippin knew there was hell to pay when they saw that gate.

I mean, the runes were in Eleven.

Saw the DVD Special Edition of Lord of the Rings.

SPOILERS:









The kareoke scene at the Prancing Pony was aoutstaounding! However when Frodo sang "Love Shack" Merry and Pippin didn't back him up. Frodo was very upset, and I'm sure Frodo will keep bringing this up throughout their journey, e.g., in that Moria place. Hope I didn't spoil anything.

Sign says, stay away fool!

Quail just handed me a slip of paper. Came across a "web log" that compelled with strange axioms. Its premise was indeed startling--write in the voice of a 17th century London-dwelling man, with full "old school" diction to boot. I don't know who is writing this web log, but he (she?) has a grasp of reverse historiography that is astounding!:

Monday 16 January 1659/60

In the morning I went up to Mr. Crew’s, and at his bedside he gave me direction to go to-morrow with Mr. Edward to Twickenham, and likewise did talk to me concerning things of state; and expressed his mind how just it was that the secluded members should come to sit again. I went from thence, and in my way went into an alehouse and drank my morning draft with Matthew Andrews and two or three more of his friends, coachmen. And of one of them I did hire a coach to carry us to-morrow to Twickenham.


Whoever this "Pepys" fellow is is pretty saavy in knowledge of alehouses, Twickenham, etc. I'm sure Pepys has a studio apt. on the upper east side (small, but you know) and relieves the temping in a Citibank office by creating, vicariously, a 17th century chap. And his mundane adventures. Inconceivable that writing would be this old! (Everything before the Mary Oliver Age of Poetics, pre-1970, is a little hazy, is it not? All those primal deer writing deer poems block the sightlines. And even THAT is a revenant compared to the Mark Doty Age, 1993-present.)

Still--why doesn't "Pepys" have an email address? A commenting system (Klink it up)? Links to Pepys's peeps? As an American, you must at least attempt to provide customer service for your mineral! This is the only negative. MINUS A STAR. But still good work, if you are reading this after Googling your name, maybe we can trade linkages.

Everybody wins?

On Lizzie McGuire as postmodern discourse. E.g., on jumptheshark:


For once no attempt is made to disguise a teenager's vile personality, staggering shallowness, & complete self-absorption. Take the episode when "The Tudge" asks Lizzie out. She's mortified because he's a quirky type, & she lusts only for the hunky dumb guy Ethan. But she gives Tudge a pity date, and he turns out to be brilliant and charming. At show's end she rejects him anyway. Brilliant! Nicely differentiated are the supporting cast: Gordo, the frustrated guy-best-friend; Miranda, the slightly-less-good-looking girlfriend; Ashley, the slightly-better-looking archenemy...the weird and unclassifiable little brother; the sweetheart of a father whom L rolls her eyes at compulsively; and the bitchy mother. The point is that none of them are real people at all, but rather projections of Lizzie's myopic view of them.

Evening doesn't think Lizzie McGuire would hang out with those two losers in rl.

x-ref from New World Disorder:


The group also sells bottled Kabbalah water — which Madonna swears by. The water, according to the group’s site, is “dynamic ‘living’ water” with “a highly organized structure, crystalline formations and a fractal design.” Kabbalah water, the Center’s Yehuda Berg insists, is a tradition dating back centuries. “We charge the water with positive energy,” he tells the Scoop. “So that it has healing powers,” he says.

The ordinary is hard work.

Went to see the English Cider House Hours in Love today. SEVENTY STARS! Those actors can act emotive. I wish I was a member of the academy so I could nominate Shakespeare in Gladiator Chicago yesterday. Why don't they streamline that process so the "blockbusters" are much more like going to Blockbuster?!? Then everyone could get swag from the charitable film companies, just like the Stars do. Of course not everyone could get a thousand dollar watch and five hundred gift arrear to a day spa like Julianne Kidman Cunningham would probably get (don't get me wrong! 4-figure swag is wholly deserved for emoters like those actors!). Some people would probably have to get keychains. As long as those keychains glitter like Miramax's hair, I'm on board.

Why don't stars create minerals?

Back!

Took the dirgible to Erie for a weekish or so. Here are some pictures from my times new roman:







*MAY take a little while to load*

As you can see, it took a couple of tries to pull Evening out of the icy deluge of Presque Isle. That was a memorial day!

And here's Quail having trouble holding "it" down:















(and she thought this was destroyed. But actually I had to uproute it via the Heinz Satellite through a Malaysian fence and funneled back to me disguised as Spam. The Heinz Satellite tracks global condiment use. Had to cloak this image as a quantum packet.)

And now that my travel narrative is over and the bloodstream is less heightened by wonder, I can return to the business of ordinary revelations.
