This is my canvas. I started by importing my old Google Blog “fiction, mostly” and two pivotal years from my Tumblr “A Trial Run on Paper.” Now I have over 4,500 posts to revisit, style, and try on for size in this Twenty-Twenty theme.
One of my favorite Brits is Nic Roberson, the foreign correspondent who finds himself in war zones plying his trade for CNN. I’m sure he’s heard so many jokes about being the real Nick Danger that he isn’t even polite anymore. Nic’s Wikipedia article includes this wonderful description:
My teenage daughter plays a game with her friends that goes roughly like this–they each have their laptops and start on a webpage with headlines like Yahoo! News. The game is to see who can get from that page to a reference to Hitler in the least clicks. They can’t use a search engine, just mouse clicks. It’s a tasteless premise, but kind of amazing because it never takes very long.
It was drippin’ pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees,
Felt cold and wet on the grass beneath,
While outside naked, shiverin’, looking blue,
From the cold sunlight that’s reflected off the moon
And baby cum angels fly around you,
Reminding you that we used to be three and not two,
And that’s how the world began.
And that’s how the world will end.
This is absolutely brilliant! Please watch and share.
Paz y amor
Too much wine.
Has anyone ever figured out the precise date these pictures were taken?
I think we need to celebrate it as a holiday every year.
