Lols, inc.: Realty Reality →
lookingataview: I’ve been trying to explain to everyone why my day was so strange and exhausting. Moving is so disorienting. This morning I got up early to meet up with a real estate agent by the name of Charles. I was struck by the wording of his text messages. “I want to go to 52 Clark Street,” he had said…. Lol @ #lols,inc. In other words, rt’s blog. Read a hilarious...

The picture-story, which critics disregard and scholars scarcely notice, has had great influence at all times, perhaps even more than written literature… In addition, the picture-story appeals mainly to children and the lower classes. Rudolphe Topffer, 1845 via Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics
Book Review of Understanding Comics and Scott...
I read two books. One of them was called Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud. I found it on this list of Gretchen Rubin’s called “7 Books That Changed How I See The World”. She wrote: I’ve never been interested in comics, and reading this book didn’t give me an interest in comics — but it’s a fascinating analysis of art and visual communication, and...

A Study on My Dating Habits
I would like to publish the results of a study i recently did. Since about two years ago, I have dated 20 people. I tried to remember them all, but I may have left out a couple. On the netflix scale of 1-5 stars (hated, didn’t like, liked, really liked, loved), I gave everyone a rating. I found that out of the 20, I “really liked” or “loved” 6 of them, or...

“Part of the /point/ of clothing, when thoughtfully chosen, is to enhance/disguise/manipulate the appearance of our body shape.” I saw this quote a couple of days ago in a comment on something I had written and it irked me, including and especially the emphasis on the word “point” as if I were an idiot for missing it and the inclusion of the word “thoughtfully” to indicate that those of us...

We should all know this: that listening, not talking, is the gifted and great role, and the imaginative role. And the true listener is much more beloved, magnetic than the talker, and he is more effective and learns more and does more good. And so try listening. Listen to your wife, your husband, your father, your mother, your children, your friends; to those who love you and those who...

I do not know anything i like particularly
After the poem writing I asked around the class what each one liked to have, or to be, or to become? One child said that she did not know anything she liked particularly. I said: ” Why I bet i can name ten things you are absolutely wild about.” And did so: “A tiger. To tame wild horses. A revolver. A diamond necklace. To be an explorer in a haunted forest. To be a sea...

When Henri was here, we went to a diner at around 1 am and we ordered about 6 appetizers and a veggie burger. The mozzarella sticks were sooo good.
Brenda Ueland on the subject of Children
“the more rambunctious children are, the more wonderful the spirit and the energy that is in them. And say to yourself: They have to use it, don’t they? So they can learn more and more. What you learn from scolding parents is superficial and worthless. What ou learn from your own search and inner life is part of you forever.” “You see we get to thinking that...
