*** Wisdom From A Typewriter No. 60 ***

I might be paraphrasing a bit here. The quote went by pretty quickly in the middle of a screening of “Without Getting Killed Or Caught,” the documentary about Guy Clark (and Susannah Clark and Townes Van Zandt for good measure). He was actually recalling how he captured the refrain from his signature song, “L.A. Freeway,” which became the title of his biography by Tamara Savarino.

*** Wisdom From A Typewriter No. 58 ***

From “The Copenhagen Trilogy” by Tove Ditlevson.

Which I read after hearing this review by John Powers on NPR:

Money quote:

With a born writer’s killer instinct, she likes to pounce on us with arresting chapter openings, such as this first sentence about her second husband, Ebbe: “Whenever I try to recall his face, I always see him the way he looked that day I told him there was someone else.”

I got some pushback from the quote above when I posted it to social media from the “everything a man says about a woman is misogyny” crowd.  Suffice it to say I don’t think they quite got my meaning.  I’m still working on it.

What To Wear in A #Coronapocalypse


I found something to wear during the #Coronapocalypse.

There is only one god,
His name is Death.
And there is only one thing we say to Death:
“Not Today” –Syrio Ferrel, First Sword of Bravos
Introducing the unofficial Game of Thrones Quarantine T-Shirt. I may wear this until Danaerys and Drogon fry the bug.

**** Wisdom From A Typewriter No. 54** .

I’ve been reading a book called “Sex At Dawn – The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality” and found this on page 149, at the end of the chapter that entitled “Jealousy.”

I keep knocking on the door of esoteric topics like Forbidden Technologies (forbidden by ‘who’, exactly??) and Human Destiny, because, of course, these are the things I think about… Do what you will with that information… .
