Eavesdropping on Jack Womack and William Gibson 12/24/98
Gibson: I don't think I'd much been in New England before. I think I've been out here long enough, now, I'm a West Coast person. Something spooky about a place where the Thai food is actually bad. Is that the Puritan thing, do you think?
Womack: Definitely; pleasure taken from food is a sign of a low and vexatious nature. Only someone of Puritan heritage, or a Brit, would have come up with Grape-Nut pudding, you know; and believe me, compared to Moxie and Sultana Roll that's like truffled risotto. Hard to beat the clams though, if you like the savory bivalve.
Gibson: Indeed.

Is WonderBread meant to be square? very disconcerting.
I wonder if there are baked-goods R&D guys working feverishly on producing bread with easily-removable (perforated?) crusts.

Women Who Wear Glasses
"Women wear glasses on chains, like metal dogs on a leash. They whip them around in the air like a lasso. They bite the earpiece of the temple, than which simply nothing is more suggestive. They lay their glasses down on the table, allowing the whole world to go fuzzy on them, while they rub their eyes. They crawl around on the floor, looking for their glasses, which they can't find because they're not wearing their glasses. They find their glasses and hug you in a frenzy of unblurry relief. They clean their glasses with your T-shirt. They read in bed. They place their glasses on top of their head like deep-sea divers emerging from the deep sea. They push them halfway down their nose so they can neither see you nor not see you, so you can neither see them nor not see them. They remove their glasses, exposing the little red indentation across the bridge of their nose. They smash their glasses while making love to you. They tuck their glasses carefully in a case, like putting a baby to bed.

the author of the applet in the previous link has more stuff worth seeing. With Stereoscopic Polyhedral Compounds and a Hyperspace Star Polytope Slicer, how can you resist?

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day is on multiple dimensional reality today. Must read.

and from Stephen Fry's latest novel, "Making History":
"I saw a play the other week (plays are nothing to films, nothing. Theater is dead but sometimes I like to go and watch the corpse decompose)..."

from an Interview with Lord British of Origin systems.
"Do you wish that you could regain the helm at Origin once again?

We fantasized about buying Origin back from EA. I feel we could have made it run much better. However as Joseph Campbell says in Hero With A Thousand Faces: "A schism in the body social, will not be resolved by any scheme of a return to the good old days (archaism), or by programs guaranteed to render an ideal projected future (futurism), or even by the most realistic, hardheaded work to weld together again the deteriorating elements. Only birth can conquer death-the birth, not of the old thing again, but of something new." [Yeah. What he said.]"

on the other hand, there's a new born baby in the house, and nothing has ever seemed more magical.

It really bothers me, that everything i say or think is perfectly refutable by anyone with merely a different perspective.

When was the last time you opened all your cupboards and turned on all the lights, to check for monsters?

bear waking up, stretching, looking around blearily;
cat waking up, stretching, turning around in circles and curling up again;
dog waking up, stretching, turning quickly to look at something;
human waking up, slouching blearily to the bathroom to brush teeth.
