fearing the old water

gargling. that’s the answer. respect the irreducible contraptions. they will HAUNT you. eat your liver. and spill your unconfessed “sins” to the vasty porpitude. in case, you were wondering. you know. thundry/lightny gods were playing in the skies above my house last night. playing dice or maybe backgammon. that’s a good game for fogs to play. (i mean, gofs or doofs) enough stricture to keep them from erasing… er.

so there you are. then. then then.

feel that braincurdle welling up. i mean, that toecurdle. or why do the eyes brimup sometimes? that old throatcurdle. where are you, my nejurochemisticals, going to?

“it’s hard to watch ducks float by when your nose is goosepinched….”

i have no happy link for you today. or no sad link neither. contrariwise, only dull links that i’m not linkering too. dingdongdellyo.

winter’s dying day–frying trout on the backburner

ahoy, my vasty dilmas! eat some words and watch the footnotes parade by like ants, ya.
that con queso keeps my spleen from venting, patching up the quivering loverbuoys.
ah, forsigh, but who even reads poemcicles anymore? plenty of writers scrawling away at their etchy monsoons.

eat your heart in the marketplace? that’s the way to do it… kick over those countingtraps. whop the words into frenzied (heh) k-?r-skrs.

The media climate

Alex Burns’ “The Worldflash of a Coming Future” analyzes the media climate before and after 9/11 amid such events as the wars in Iraq, Kosovo and Somalia in addition to 9/11 itself.

He discusses the “CNN Effect”, “Gateholder” and “Manufacturing Consent” models of media ecology. It’s a very thorough essay and seems very well-researched, even if it does seem to have high intellectual barriers to understanding.* (It would definitely help to have read all of the sources he cites; though I believe that he does an admirable job of encapsulating sources. The question: what is lost?)

*For example: What exactly does “neo-noir work culture” mean?
