    Information Virus #3: Chris Titan & Brenden Simpson

    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…

    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.
