Name: lonegungirl Source: unca20060316.htm HE: The essay on Charlie was lovely, and I'm sorry for your loss. I particularly liked the screen door imagery. I noticed some time ago, that my mental image of people does not update with age--that people are, essentially, frozen at the time when I first ...

Name: lonegungirl Source: unca20050524.htm Some spare thoughts: I have recently discovered in graphic novel collections, the Astro City comics. On the off-chance that I'm not the last person to read them, I will drop the note that, in the land of the superheros, they detail the life and times of th...

Tolliver actually seems clinicaly depressed to me. I would agree that his construction/financial problems are considerable, but certainly not life-crippling as he makes them out to be. It would be hard to believe that he could become so totally paralyzed by it if I hadn't seen so many people in real...

#10 - The Man Who Was Heavily into Revenge

[From SHATTERDAY. Mod-] The Man Who Was Heavily Into Revenge [This post was a great deal longer, but apparently the internet decided to be benevolent towards all of you and erased it with an Invalid_Session message.] This story has always been a favorite of mine because I feel it makes a lot of poin...

RE: Scott Petersen

Today, it suddenly occurred to me why his whole scenario has felt familiar--that whole case now seems perfectly like a made-for-TV miniseries adaptation of Theodore Dreiser's "American Tragedy."

I guess on the Siri issue I didn't really think it was a huge sacrifice on her part, giving herself to the demon, because I figured he just ate her--versus taking her soul. As she was already dead, it didn't seem as bad as say, when Caperton was threatening to have people killed for grail informatio...

Name: lonegungirl Source: unca20050524.htm I just read the JMS posting--very interesting. I'd be curious to know exactly how much executives would respond to a fan-supported campaign, such as he's asking for. Whether or not it ever happens, it's an intriguing notion--JMS and Trek--sort of like thos...

re: Nostalgia. On lileks.com, the author has a collection of images from old-time cookbooks and "regrettable food." When he contemplates why such things are collectables, he notes that "They're everyday relics of another time, my parents' time, and this gives them a poignancy they do not deserve, an...

Living in London as I do, 'Prowler..' has a particular resonance.... The 'Jack the Ripper' guided tours around the various murder sites in the Whitechapel area have proliferated over the past few years. The subject obviously continues to hold a fascination for the general public, as it does me. Goo...

Actually, I think the reality TV analogy is pretty good--I don't feel that the focus of the story is on violence necessarily, but on the ubiquitous darkness that rejoices in the violence. The point of reality shows, as I see it, is not that everyone always lies/cheats/sleeps around but that everyone...

Name: lonegungirl Source: unca20050211.htm RE: Star Trek I second Ezra's posting. TOS was very important to me when I was little(r), and it continues to be simply because it provides such a strong connection to those days.

One of the questions I always had about this story was whether or not Jack was always impotent in the City. By the end, it seems as though the powers of the flower people are so all-encompassing, that Jack is merely a harmless source of amusement for them; however, he does kill Harmon, and he does c...
