Where are the dogs????

Paul Zrimsek said...

In addition to the dogs, we're missing a distorted-looking M.C. Escher looking out at us from inside the glass ball.

Pogo said...

I hope that's not a bezoar.

Pogo said...

But if it is, bravo!

Chaos struggled for release in vitro like a Pompeii victims struggled in vivo. Now their impressions are frozen, cast in glass and sent forth in silico.

chickelit said...

Dammit to hell! Oh well

edutcher said...

Big balls.

Ew Pogo, a bezoar? I'd hate to have that thing stuck in my stomach.

I am prepared to say, after reflection of a substantial nature, that "Touching The Void" is the best title to anything ever.

Nearer, My God is a temporary second, not distant, but sure to overcome the unBuckleyness I face soon, as a winner.

When is the last time someone used Martin Luther King Junior's words, derived, for the benefit of society?

Are we unKing?

"16 April 1963
My Dear Fellow Clergymen:
While confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent statement calling my present activities "unwise and untimely.'"

Big Ooooops!
Apparantly the Aurora killer mailed a folder to his psychiatrist back in early July detailing his killing plans for mass slaughter at a public gathering, how he would do it, with what guns.

It arrived at the U of Denver mailroom on July 12th, and somehow went undelivered.

Lessons:

1. Big whoops for the mailroom, just like big whoops for the FBI for ignoring the Phoenix Memo that one agent wrote about large numbers of extremist Muslims taking flying lessons.

2. Now that the killer has been lawyered up and our justice system perverted away from "swift and sure" to endless Talmudic argument and due process...we rely on facts to help figure out what is going on...

The killer does appear to have mental issues...

The paperweight that pins the papers
Does not need to know the thoughts it pins,
It sits in perfect Buddha stasis
Untortured by reams of tortured spins.

"It arrived at the U of Denver mailroom on July 12th, and somehow went undelivered."

If I was the psychiatrist who received that and ignored it, I'd reseal it and take it back to the mail room.

But that's just me.

Exactly what fat people need: a tabl escape.

I had a hamburger (or correctly: A Plaza Burger) at the Plaza Tavern in Madison today.

I did that because: (a)I wanted a hamburger, and (b)I have a motorcycle.

There is now an AJ Bombers (founded in Milwaukee) across the street from the Plaza Tavern, so a return visit will be arranged for a side-by-side hamburger comparison.

A stroll around the Capitol yielded only one protester sighting - a scruffy guy carrying a "stop class warfare" sign. He didn't appear to possess the grooming characteristics of an employed person, so I guessed which side of the class warfare battle line he was on.

He asked if I had any spare change and I told him I just gave it to a guy collecting change for Obama. He called me a motherfucker, but I could tell by his face that I'd given him the idea for his next spare change scam.

Change for Obama!

In addition to the MC Escher print Paul Zrmisek alludes to, I'm reminded of a photograph by William Eggleston, 8th from the bottom in the selection here.

<a href="http://www.buzzfeed.com/zekejmiller/democrats-plan-to-go-nuclear-on-romney-you-didnt> This Brad Woodhouse memo </a> is just begging for the full Althouse treatment, sentence-diagramming optional. Hard to believe Woodhouse is the Communications Director.

I've always been partial to spheres, and I've always assumed that's because I am of this world.

Penny said...

And when I'm inclined to go beyond my boundaries?

With all due respect to the math guys...

I assume there is a physicist who can teach me more.

Penny said...

Only spent quality time with two physicists in my life.

One is "out there" now, and no longer part of the world as I know it.

I am optimistic that the second physicist will work his way back into my orbit for some positive outcome in this world, or the next.

Penny said...

Physicists are fuckin' freaky!

Ha ha

Awwwwwwwww

Penny said...

And ricpic?

You're mighty special too.

Have seen big changes in you over the past year.

Good changes!

Now that you've settled into something that seems to "fit".

Mittens are good. Gloves are better.

How's the ol' gut feeling?

Better Chickie! I've got another wedding shower to attend, for my daughter, this weekend. The one at the lake last weekend was great, countdown to the wedding!

I'm just here to see if I can read yet another vigorous online admonition to not eat Chick-fil-a. The other day, no one knew or cared about the politics of the owners of the restaurants where they ate. Today this is the Important Thing. It is going to be such a great deal of work now, researching the owners of every eatery.

Just thinking of all that work makes me want to eat a chicken sandwich.
