I currently seem to be proving my theory that I can't simultaneously write a novel and blog.

I did, however, run across this wonderful old filmclip on my friend Joi Ito's blog:

Sorry for being too lazy to make you a proper hyperlink, but it's worth watching. I remember seeing this one on television: the imaginary fascist emblems in the polling-place sequence intrigued me.

NAMES

I was looking through a list of women's names today, Dutch, all prior to the year 1100:

Clodauuiua
Clotrada
Crapahildis
Cunegundis

Once you see the name Crapahildis it sort of sticks with you, doesn't it? And think of all the men who cried out "Clodauuiua!" with utmost longing.

Is that ever one terrible sad-ass mess, down there.

I'm too busy elsewhere to make a tidy little hyper-link for you, but the New Orleans local of the American Federation of Musicians, URL as below, can get your spare money to some of this planet's more supernal artists, some of whom, you've got to figure, need it badly now.
