Who are the Chums of Chance?

What have they done to the Silver Queen?

fucking shit I can’t fucking help it

so I just can’t quite let go of the profanity. I don’t think it’s going to happen. I was always told by my grandmother that profanity ‘those kinds of words’ just shouldn’t be in books.

I disagree.

I find myself wondering how I’ve acquired this aura about me that seems to prevent people from being blue. They act as if I’ll be offended, guard their speech.

And that’s the real issue

When a person is cussing, when there’s a solid stream of subconscious words making themselves known,
you are getting a raw feed

you are getting pure thought

you know there’s very little if any censorship going on between thought and phrase

and this knowledge allows you to be perceptive of character by listening to the patterns that arise in unfettered speech

writing, I attempt to catch this ephemera, these nuances
in such a way as to make the resulting text more than
a few words, some scattered ink…

I want to bring a cluster of thought out
in crystalline form
and evaluate it

value it

own it, by
having named it.

there is a value in profanity

and for those seeking to invest, there’s even more value in profanity press

um, yeah…

bad ass adwords


If you haven’t heard, an online prankster named Michael Crook is trying to abuse the DMCA to have unflattering pictures of himself taken off of web sites. 10 Zen Monkeys (RU Sirius’s new zine) and the EFF are fighting back. I’m suggesting everyone put a pic of Crook and a link to the 10ZM page to 1. Spread the pic far and wide in defiance of the DMCA and 2. Google bomb for the term “michael crook.”

Here’s a path to the image: http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o265/anticrook/michaelcrook01.png It’s widely available elsewhere too.
