Let's get the whale lover's pizza

Why are we fascinated by robots? What do they represent? Our awe and fear of the machine.

Why are we fascinated by zombies? What do they represent? Our awe and fear of death.

Why are we fascinated by werewolves? What do they represent? Our awe and fear of our own inner animal nature.

Why are we fascinated by pirates? What do they represent? Our awe and fear of audacity. Also, our secret desire to wear those lacy neck thingies, like ties, sort of, but they're all fluffy and feminine and if you're a guy, other people would make fun of you if you wore them, but they can't if you're a pirate, because you have a black eye patch, and a parrot on your shoulder and a flag with skull on it, and anyway, if they did, you'd hack off their head with your cutlass and then sing pirate songs while drinking rum and sitting on a dead man's chest, which is gross when you think about, but still would be really cool, as long as the dead man hadn't decayed too much because then you'd risk falling into his body with your butt and that would be really gross, and I mean really.

Why are we fascinated by Paris Hilton? What does she represent? Our awe and fear of marketing.


It is snowing. Yet again. Is there some huge, secret lake in central Pennsylvania that no one is talking about?


My fellow Clarionite webpetals's novel, Tiger Eye, is now out, and probably available in your local bookstore, or from Amazon, where I'm buying it. Go, Marjorie!

Also finally getting matociquala's Hammered.


KA

uzu
meaning: whirlpool, eddy

渦中 == kachuu == (noun) sneeze vortex
渦流 == karyuu == (noun) swirling current


A simplification of an older character comprised of the radical form of 'water' and 'pass/flexible movement' (過). Because of the deletion of the 'movement' radical, Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Water in whirlpool passes with disappearing movement.'
