I tried to come up with all sorts of funny or elegant representations of the simplest solution, but then i asked myself, how i can i deliberately twist Chuck's words? The simplest solution, is, in fact, Saline. 0.9%, to be precise.

For a song...

Came up with this song when I was in the shower today. Pure coincidence that it happens to be in 11. Really.

oldie but goodie

Bailing wire is like an old friend.
Its there when you need it and
I guess bailing hay when you don’t?
Anyway, those damn dogs wont get out this time.

Look down, bottom right hand corner. Next to the V in vimeo you'll see an icon with 4 arrows. Maximize first, then play. Please.

July Challenge

In the words of Warren Ellis, "Be Short, Be Bold, and Get It Done." That pretty well sums up the spirit of Phinal Phridays.

So without further adieu, the July Assignment:

This month's Oblique Strategy reads "What is the simplest solution?"

Hey, that ties in with Warren's quote nicely.

So give me something simple. Simple need not be minimal, just not unnecessarily complex. If that means going overboard at first and paring it away to what you need? Do that. Or if it means starting small and adding one bit at a time until adding one more bit would push it over the edge, that works too.

Submissions due sometime on Sunday, preferably.

Go to it!

More Mecha than Org

Our lives are reduced to electronic impulses stabbing at our eyes and wrecking our sense of reality in the form of email.

Gone are the days when it would be normal to not hear from someone for a few days at a time. And gone is the singularity of personality. Now we occupy many personae and it all depends on what electronic goal or piece of Taintia Majoria attached to we seek to erstwhile probe.

When you walk up to a person, like an actual person (as opposed to K-Mart manikins or Bob Costas I suppose) its pretty freaky to think about all of the bizarre perversions they hide inside of their actual reality, their electronic one. Most of the people you meet have probably seen a chimp drink its own pee like a water fountain. And those of you who haven't just clicked on that link so the cycle is complete.

Fifteen year old sex kittens and half off snowboarding mittens, terabytes of vacation photos with you tube videos and a Panda blowing its nose. STOP.

The ultimate idiosyncrasy, the breadth of our own reality, no longer exists solely in 3 dimensional space, it is a tangled mass of fiber optic cable and switches. Instantaneous gratification is all the rage. I didn't check my email for a week and I had 50 messages. Several were asking if I was "OK." No, I'm not OK.

I'm friggin three days late posting to the PHUI blog and didn't even know it.

Um. wait. What week is it?
