About

My life is about words.

word (n.) – a single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed.

My existence is based on the assumption that words are meaningful, distinct, and unique. Language is the same thing as culture. Memory is the same thing as conciousness.

rodomontade (n.) – boastful or inflated talk or behavior.

The entire artistic and other manifestations of human achievement can not only be summarized, not only defined, but encompassed by the idea of language.

“Hello? Yes, I forgot my mantra.” – Jeff Goldblum as “Lacey Party Guest” in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall.

I’m a sap who abhors the cliché. I’m a movie elitist. I’m a nerd. I want to be famous.

  1. You’re a sap who abhors the cliche? Sounds paradoxical. One time, I wrote in a blog, “I abhor the cliche” and in response, you spent a good paragraph of your next entry illustrating how someone saying they “abhor the cliche” is cliche in itself. And here you are using it in your “about me” page. What a doozie.

  2. yes, yes. It’s almost as if I did that on purpose. How strange.

  3. actually, it’s almost as if you’re an arrogant bastard. but I already know that to be true.
