Death Star poetry

"He understood, more clearly than anyone else, that the messiness of the real world was precisely the point at which his mathematics should be aimed. As an applied mathematician, he worked out a general theory of control systems and feedback mechanisms, a theory which he called "cybernetics."

"The aphorist positions him or herself as: (1) a sage able to contain worlds in a sentence or two; (2) a self-doubter not qualified to deliver a speech but only a sentence or two. And so it is a voice borne of an opposition. The sage risks pomp, the self-doubter editing his own content out of existence."

"Rather as Walter Benjamin dreamed of a book that would consist of nothing but quotations, so Wittgenstein toyed with the idea of a text that would be composed of nothing but jokes."

"Graham is a burnished idol of the poetry world, having at 54 already pulled off the trifecta of American verse: (1) a major prize (the Pulitzer); (2) a longtime faculty position at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, the Death Star of the modern M.F.A. system; and (3) an appointment at one of the Ivies (in this case Harvard, where Graham now occupies a seat previously held by the Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney)."

"As the weather in a particular location changes, the characters clothes will reflect the weather and the graphic will show rain, snow, airborne particles and changes in cloud cover. Daylight, sunset and current moon phase are also displayed."

is it just me or has gmail been kinda slow as of late...? i saw some postings of other ppl saying so as well, but they complained about attachments. but for me just a regular 4 sentence email gives me like 30-40 seconds of "sending..." maybe i'm over-exaggerating but it is really long. trust me. it's not cause i'm high right now. so.. uhm, anyone?

anyone reading this? lol

i hafta get myself back in the mode where i remember to post about things that happen to me.

not that this is something that happened solely to me cause there were like a million people there last night at the summer fest thing at dundas square where broken social scene performed for free after that weird fucked up circus giraffes and clowns and bitch diva opera that preceded it. man was that fucked. broken social were jawsome!

there was some site plastered everywhere, something about www.torontoblabla.ca, i don't remember what the blabla was, i'll just hafta keep my eye out for it. if u remember please tell me!

i hope you evilturtlenecks/film peeps found your way here, cause i need audience support.

also, everyone owes me money.

OMG i've been bothered by this a lot lately. fucking programs stealing focus.

say you're happily chatting away on msn, and you remember that u hafta visit some page so u click ie and continue typing, and midsentence you get cut off by ie loading. everything wants to be on top, and only in this case is this a bad thing (har har). usually this is just annoying but sometimes a dialogue pops up with yes selected by default and u press the spacebar, or u type a word with a "y" and BAM, you've installed some spyware, or let something thru your firewall or something has happened that you're unaware of. fuckers!

here is the quick and easy fix, u need tweakui - which is available for download from the microsoft website, click here. (this program is also really good for other things, i've had it since windows 95, which i hung on to for far too long, fucking stupid OS, lol.)

under "general" click the checkbox for Prevent applications from stealing focus. and that's it!

sweeeeet

the following pics are of the windows paintings i did for indigo for their upcoming harry potter 6 launch. this one i did with jess, we hadta do it in reverse on the inside, and it was hard cause the only colour pic we had was the wrong way. it still turned out pretty good i think.
