Loved it, and was that not the best GIF in the world on page 28?

I do believe it was.

Thanks dudes. yeah, that is a recycled gif, but in truth it was always destined to be part of something larger.

b/t/w what's that dig about "your busy day", is that a taunt because you know I did nothing but eat marshmallow easter eggs today?

I like the philosophical question: are we hard-wired for narrative? Also, the Segway and moonwalk stuff is funny. They both seem kind of ludic, like a pogo stick.

I'd love to stay and contemplate this further but I got a busy day ahead of me chasing down grand the one about the little funny-shaped groups of people that banded together to cross the desert only to find out it had been booby-trapped by an omnisicent being.

Whut the...?

"the one" is where I was going next anyway!

Which is more deleterious, mindless grand narratives, or marshmallow easter eggs?
- M.Jean 3-10-2008 8:47 pm

In the live performance I use my cell phone to show the visuals and end the performance with a personal moonwalking lesson.
But that didn't translate in to the web version so well. It worked because it reconnected you to the physical here and now, impossible through the computer. So the original moonwalk reference makes more sense when you come to it a second time - in the web version it just hangs as an odd nonsequiter. Also fine.

I like the penguin watching the guy pick up the meteorite.

fun recap of an interesting story ....

isn't this story related to the one that has all of us descended from martian life forms ..... the earth was 'infected' by a blast from the martian past???

Ssssaaaallllllyyyy. You moved it. Now Joester will not see my earthshaking comments, his butterfly might find a new path, The entire timespace continuum will change, and it is all your fault! Or mine, or your mother's, maybe even my mother's. Hey wait, I have a 96 yr old Granny, it must be her fault.

Sally doesn't have the power to move comments (I DO HAHAHAHAHAHA) but it wasn't moved, you placed it on this thread:

oldest living mother in the line, blame attaches, not sure why. Possibly that bitch Eve. I don't even like apples
- galenagalaxian 3-11-2008 9:03 am

LM, have I told you how wonderful I think you are?
- galenagalaxian 3-11-2008 9:05 am

I am going to be the middle of a five generation photo, that means it is not my fault yet. In the last one, I was the mother of the new baby, now I am the grandmother, getting less safe, soon it will all be my fault. Future generations, I am very very sorry. Here is the mantra when it becomes your fault. 'I did the best I could with the knowledge and resources I had'.

BTW Galenagalaxian, all image rights were obtained. Or at least all the important ones.

Here is Galenagalaxian's post from the other thread:

"Very interesting Joester. I do remember hearing about it, but I thought it was only a couple of years ago. I am amazed to hear it was 1996. I found it very interesting at the time, then thoroughly lost track of it... and I thought it was the moon, oops.

- sally mckay 3-11-2008 6:41 pm

when I first started researching I was shocked that it was over ten years ago too. I thought it was about three.

The Roy Orbison reference seems odd.

We should know that his dormant career went through an unusual phoenix phase shortly before his death on December 6, 1988, with hit songs recorded with k.d.lang, and The Traveling Wilburys, and the Black and White Night concert video.

- joester (guest) 3-13-2008 10:42 am

I just wanted to use the word "phoenix"...
