This is a note from jbottle's sponsor:  He's in good hands.

Keep hoping, beautiful people.

Whiz to the gee, my brothers, anyway, I apologize for my anti- comments earlier and most specifically do not regret anything said against
Fred  Funk.

I seem to be about 12 steps away from 200 posts:  The first is admitting that I'm powerless over alcohol:  Newsflash, alcohol is a molecule.  I will admit to being powerless over Cheetahs, but my brothers and sisters, I will never and am not in fact powerless over alcohol.  For some reason some motherfucker putting a Glock in my face in today's fucked society:  Yeah, take the $200, no prob, I'm "powerless," but over beer?, oh, no, no, no sir, that is just not going to happen.  I felt bad for the couple who fell off a building accidentally to each of their deaths, it seemed so odd and untimely, but was happy that they were at least pursuing a sort of biological whim rather than a war of personality.  We had a couple of cuties, and I promise I'm not making light of this at all, lost in the battle against whatever isn't oil concern, and so shoot, I think that they have a speedtrain ticket to heaven if possible, and feel for their families.  There was a cop who said "We can only imagine what they were doing...," which shows a rare demostration of imagination for
Columbia cops, but poor taste.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it isn't until 250 post that you get your status changed to Sr. Member.

Any thoughts on "Russian Ark"? I just saw it yesterday and was looking for some commentary...

Crumb is an eye-opener, totally engrossing.  Personally had been under the impression that much of his work had been created by someone back in the 30's, though had never given it that much thought, simply finding many of his "icons" bizarrely fascinating.  Great documentary (six years work?) raw, revealing, sad...

Thanks for the recommendation, Diz!

Jbot -- alcohol is a molecule that makes some warble.  Call it "Warhol."

Do I want to sink to this level for Senior status?  Hmm.

But posting one sentence at a time is merely "interactive."

It provides gaps in one's train of thought that allow others to break in.

I think the post-structuralists like Foucault are correct -- the writer doesn't "own" or determine the meaning of his text.  Like Jbottle, one may simply let the words fly out and leave their meaning fluid and indeterminate and hope that someone will interpret them as meaningful, perhaps even profound.

And don't pronounce his name "Fuck-O" -- he really hates that.

It's "Fook-oh."
