Yesterday, while doing the usual "Midwestern Living" approved Saturday ride the trolley, shopping, errands bit, I had one of those sudden brainstorms- that's fancy talk for there was this flash of lightning, and a piece of the sky fell on my head. No, we weren't headed for Kansas in a balloon. I was in a … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Welcome To 1968
With nuclear threats whirling in the air, and Gutenberger having to decide if it is safe to go to Easter sunrise service in the huge cathedral here in Gutenberg land, the trains threatening to strike, and rumors of high levels of toxins in the Easter cheese, the local tv channels here filled the Easter weekend … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: It’s Easter- So Bring On The Minkies
Yesterday, while working on how to kill a protagonist I didn't really want to kill, (although said prot. surely deserved it, the way I have written it,) which therefore meant I probably just wasn't ready to do said prot. in, which definitely meant more background detail in a piece that already contains egyptian pyramids that … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Elementary, My Dear Watson.
Today, probably after too much time listening to a huge convention of blind people deciding which of them was going to run for office as chancellor of Germany, (yes, truly, but either way it fit, since, in my opinion, most politicians are much more disabled than those members of the convention) I decided to talk … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of PBJ Sandwiches, Easter, And Runaway Trains
We have been in the middle of a blizzard the last couple of days here in Gutenberg Land- wintry white trees, twisting in the breeze, and sighing "oh why didn't I go to Florida in October," squirrels throwing snowballs at anyone who tries to get at their nut supply, dogs making the snow yellow so … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Death in Causton, Stars Hollow, and Gutenberg Land
(Spoiler alert: if you go to this movie, your evening will be spoilt) Last Tuesday night we went to the movies: Dr Strange, starring two, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant actors, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tilda Swinton. You could have done swan lake with plastic swans on sticks for all the acting they were allowed to … Continue reading Why Make A Movie With Cumberbatch If He’s Not Allowed To Act?
"I read the news today, oh boy..." Geek news. All about: an Octobot- one of those slimy wiggly eight-armed bots which are "completely autonomous." Completely autonomous? As in you come home one night and discover that instead of cleaning the house and fixing dinner, it has changed the locks, and is now sitting in your … Continue reading What Happens When An Octobot Meets A Flying Pizza Delivery Drone?
It's Monday morning here in Gutenberg Land. Time to report all the newest on the weekend Gutenberg scene. Not. Sorry. I find that formulation so bizarre, I sometimes play with it. Like to describe what I did with my long awaited long-weekend vacation. As in: Nope, Nobody dead, Like in tv movies. And nobody dead … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Not
One of the things I love most about the city of London, And I REALLY DO love London- well, maybe not as much as my 'adopted Londoner' Welsh friend who has an about one by two foot copy of Big Ben, made out of old wrist watch parts, on the wall next to his bed. … Continue reading And Shakespeare Lived Here: Hatch’em, Match’em, Dispatch’em, And Catch’em.
Today started, as days often start in my world, with me with my hand stuck in the coffee machine. Actually, it is not all that wild of a story, infinitely logical even- Harald the mathematician's comment when I told him about it- Thank you Mr Spock. So anyway, there I was with my hand in … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Two Tales And A London Cabbie
