Medicine Ball for a New Year's Eve recovery
slavezombie

I had me a drink from Starbucks called the Medicine Ball for the first time. It delivers a kick.

Had some leftover bourbon — a few drops — and added it, and now this 3 day cold which began to feel like a respiratory infection starting on New Years Day is in recession.

Work was hectic. busy. Issue of homeless drug addict shooting up in the middle of the night, then littering what might be needles infected with whatever diseases he may have contracted living off the streets of Boyles Heights Library

While shuffling the stacks for order, I find myself reaching deep into the lowly lit shafts of bookshelves, where magazines fall thru and never come back. It would look odd if I were to wear rubber gloves for handling empty food wrappers and candy wrappers. I’d hate to get AIDS or something worse if I was ever cut because I reach back there w/o protection.

That songmeanings domain and radiohead's "Let Down"
slavezombie
I typed the lyrics to LET DOWN the other day. I like the melody of this tune, and although my vinyl copy of OK Computer has created an obstacle for when I want to listen to this digitally, I find myself struggling to whistle the melody in my head (when feeling the way the lyrics suggest emotionally). While driving to work, I could only recall bits and pieces of the lyrics which I knew if I could recall them, I'd be able to enjoy the melody if only in my head.

It was then that I started pondering how the lyrics might have a double meaning: "let down and hanging around" for the transgender community. One of my fears, being single, is mingling with other single people and encountering a transgender woman who would most definitely be a let down. Curious about this, I visited songmeanings dot com and began to read the comments people left regarding this song. The LP was released in around 1997 and I just barely picked it up this year.

What caught my attention about this song was the line "Crushed like a bug in the ground" because, you know that crunchy sound when you see a fly on the ground spinning aimlessly trying to achieve liftoff but really it's on it's last legs and if you tap it with your foot ever so gently, the sound it makes wrecks one's sense of solace? I mean, instead of satisfaction from eliminating a pesky fly, a certain consciousness or awareness of our own mortality becomes distorted. I'm also trying to write a story in which a fly is one of the characters, so... I love this song.

I can't explain the link between the natural fading of the color red to pink with antisemitic undertones.
The color of a sheet of red paper is faded where it was exposed to direct sunlight. Pink is the new hue.
The blood stained pavement no longer contains the rich vibrant red it once possessed when it was freshly squeezed. Instead of fading, it becomes a darker tint of red.
If the age of consent in El Salvador is 18, but the age of consent in Mexico is 12, and a 16 year old American male (of Mexican descent) has a relationship with an 18 year old American female (of Salvadoran descent), is sexuality a taboo?
Is it considered paranoia to feel like one is being watched by flies?
Is a person homophobic and/or narcissistic if his taste in partners limits his sexuality to females with characteristics similar to his first love?
God fearing people who interpret reincarnation as coming back as an insect or a lesser being than a human cannot fathom the depth of a typical love story between two flies.

Understanding what a screenplay sequence is all about
slavezombie
Read more...Collapse )

SEQUENCE A

The first fifteen minutes of a picture answer the questions of who, what, when, where, and under what conditions the picture will take place -- the exposition. Before such exposition, though, it is crucial to "hook" the audience and get them interested in watching further. The most common technique for achieving this in the first sequence is through the use of curiosity. Most successful movies begin by posing a puzzle to the audience, raising questions in their minds, and promising an answer. Chinatown (1974) opens with a puzzling series of photographs showing a couple have sex, accompanied by offscreen groaning. Sunset Boulevard (1950) starts with the frantic arrival of police cars, whose officers quickly converge on a man lying face down in a swimming pool.

Once curiosity is used to draw an audience into the picture, there will be a chance to suppoly exposition -- background material -- answering the crucial questions so that the story proper can begin.

Almost always, but not invariably, the audience is introduced to the main character, or protagonist, in the first sequence, and is given a glimpse of the flow of life of the protagonist before the story itself begins -- in medias res. An effective first sequence can give us a sense of what the protagonist's life would have been like if the events that lead to story hadn't interfered. In fact, the stronger the sense of flow of life at the beginning of the picture, the bigger the impact of the destabilizing events that intrude to make the story happen. North by Northwest exemplary of this in the extent to which the storytellers cram a full evening and day's worth of appointments for the protagonist, Roger Thornhill, in the opening four minutes; having thus given us a glimpse of the flow of his life, none of these appointments is ever actually realized.

Usually by the end of the first sequence, there arises a moment in the picture called the point of attack, or inciting incident. This is the first intrusion of instability on the initial flow of life, forcing the protagonist to respond in some way. For Roger Thornhill, it is his abduction; for Jake Gittes in Chinatown, it is his realization that he's been duped.

Instr: How to mesh my typewriter with the publishing world
slavezombie
I can see nobody wants to deal with hard copy anymore. If and when I get bored doing this, I think I'll create a project to seek out business who still accept good ol' fashion letter format correspondence. Yeah, it's a lot easier to e-mail somebody. Yeah, typewriters are for psychos. But I'm the kind of guy who double spaces after a period, and when I see that HTML ignores my keystrokes, when I see that Microsoft delivers a killer snafu on the subject of utilizing the ruler guide on their word processing platforms; when they skew the hard copy by .25", etc. It's all one big headache I never dealt with when using a typewriter.

I dealt with how to find a quick and easy way to type up a hundred cover-letters for my résume to all the want-ads in the Sunday Edition of the local newspaper.

Fuck that, you say. You would much rather deal with an unaccounted for, MIA, quarter of an inch of empty space that you probably will have a real need for anyways.

Reading my blog off of a digital monitor will cause just as much harm to your eyes as reading my blog scans of typewritten entries scanned into the computer in .jpg format… on a digital monitor. And I want to get my head straight so I don't forget how to code my manuscripts together with graphic images. It can be a headache and that's why I've stickied an illustration from earlier this year. I will use it as a quick reference source for when I decide to do another one. Hell, I can see myself updating this blog regularly again, with multi pages of typed up stories and stuff. It would get tedious. I can see that. All the scanning, resizing, math. Ugh. I can't wait until it becomes a problem reading old entries with the bright digital monitors because, say, Mozilla decides to change the way HTML works.

And they call this e-publishing. More like a quick tip on how to burn books by crashing one's blog site.

keyboards for administrative clerks
slavezombie

Reflections on the work force

Even before college, when I took that typing class and learned to type on an IBM selectric, I had taught myself how to type on a manual typewriter. The first thing I noticed was the difference in key positions for special characters. Then later, because I still use my manual typewriter, I notice the difference in quality of imprint on a piece of bond paper typed on an IBM selectric compared to the manual typewriter I use: Royal Quiet de Luxe circa 1950's. I really like the braille effect the manual typewriter leaves on the back of the paper when I use the portable manual typewriter!

I was lucky after college and found a stable job as a clerk typist. Later, my job title was renamed to administrative clerk.  Exciting times. I've always linked that word with computer administrative tasks because one of the learning curves in having hobbies involving blogs is having the ability to change administrative settings on the computer one owns. But even before the change in job titles happened, I considered attempting making changes to my keyboard format; not because of language, but because I wanted a keyboard identical to the key positions of my manual typewriter I use.

It would've been nice to achieve this at work, but of course, I'm not the only person sharing the staff computer terminals and it wouldn't be fair to my co-workers to be changing the placement of the quotation keys and such. I simply wanted to make these changes on my personal computers. The obstacles I encountered after googling help in this was simply that I needed to purchase a 3rd party application to download, but even then, most of the apps I found on line for this purpose were not compatible with my old clunker computer.  I just think, since everyone else is griping about their working conditions involving scenarios like Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, etc., I too should rant about the lame job title change my employer makes which instills a sense of entitlement to be able to hack my way thru the work computers and adjust the keyboard to accommodate my ergonomic preferences.

Let me know what you think.
