Video Feedback Fractals. Nice. I can't begin to imagine what that would look like were it being fed by live video.

Corporate Me

This morning I found myself in St. Louis' largest corporate park where, unfortunately, time cannot be killed. I was unreasonably calm about the upcoming interview. A Fortune 500. I should have felt out of place, but I didn't. This made me nervous.

"This can't be me." Nice suit, briefcase. Prepared to offer a strong handshake, followed by a barrage of business acronyms.

Why this path?

Not because it's time to grow up and move on; it doesn't really work that way. People don't live in discrete phases.

Change is the only reason I can find.

On the drive home, I saw an an abandoned Children's Palace. Six years ago, it was the stage for the finale to a Fourth of July weekend that, at that age, was everything I wanted my life to be. It's hard to quantify how much a person can change.

But I changed, even though I was as happy then as I am now. And I'll do it again and again.

Meet the Whimpster: The Manipulative Asshole in Sensitive Clothing

But these women are the litany of ex-girlfriends who made broken promises. Assuredly, you are different. You are special."

Harmon Leon articles ... "infiltrative journalism."
"'Donít worry, this is all a part of a TV show,' I say, realizing the two of us (man in cowboy hat, guy in lederhosen, standing by urinal) looks like a Village People video from another dimension. The producer comes back. Lederhosen-APPROVED!" (here)

Hey Deity

Dear God,

Thanks for responding to my last message so quickly. However, I think that you misinterpreted my recent request; I only needed for you to send one (1). I always appreciate your attention, but I might develop a complex.

Your pal,
Mike

Valentine

I'm excited about Valentine's Day. This fact might instigate an identity crisis.

Three random facts:

  • She can sing. Really sing.
  • Her writing style reminds me of Douglas Coupland.
  • We may be the only two people to have analysed Logan's Run.

Lightcycle is slowly coming back to life. A long-term mixed media project is in the works with my friend Amy. Its going to be big. Await further details.
