How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

A mood...

... I'm almost brooding. Alot of this comes from reading that blog earlier. It set the mood, but now... now I want to make something beautiful, and destroy something beautiful, all at the same time. Now, I want to write poetry where the words have sharp edges, and only periods provide lintement. Where respite from the torture is between phrases, in that clumsy comma splice, or hovering on a semi-colon.

I also read a few stories from Cory Doctorow's A Place So Foriegn, a collection of his short stories which is available for download. I've read three of the six online so far, "Crapound", which is charming and thoughtful, but not groundbreaking; "A Place So Foriegn", the title story, which is compelling. It starts by confusing you, and then explaining your confusion, while simultaneously evoking Issac Asimov and Laura Ingalls Wilder. Trust me, it works. So far though, my favorite (and not just because it has someone who is the channel of Nicola Tesla), is "Home and Home Again", which is sentimental, twisted, and... heartwrenching.

Good reads all, and I'm looking forward to finishing the other two, and at some point, purchasing the volume. I may post some here, with no copyright fear, as the license is "Attribution, Noncommercial, No-derivitave works". I love Creative Commons- copyright law people can understand.

Speaking of beautiful things, Go watch this. It'll make your eyes bugout with its Escherness.
