Is it an "ebook" or an "e-book?"



The real problem with ebooks: You can't burn them.


All text is ironic. Don't confuse intelligibility with intelligence.

Words laugh at you when you burn them.

August Rainbow versus Catholicism

Brought to you via the electrical grid

We had a couple knock-out rainbows this summer of 2010


Yesterday was the anniversary of the

Fall of the Twin Towers


That reminds me,

I saw four guys holding a banner in Women's Park here in Helena


it read

as I drove by

this tribe of four guys holding their banner

they all seemed to be talking at each other at once


I was reminded of that old media form known as television

Camel DNA

Riffs on a sentence from Richard Dawkins (UNWEAVING THE RAINBOW)

Camel Dna

Camel DNA has been shaped by the desert
As Starfish genes are carved by waves
Sequenced by sand and salt
Camel DNA tells the ancestral story
blowing in the mindless tunnels
of this ruminant quadruped
Camel DNA speaks in a syntax
sculpted by survival
"Desert" is written in the genes of these Biblical beasts
Camel DNA sings of arid climates
just as Dolphin DNA chants of the sea--
Eagle DNA describes ancient azure
While crickets’ Digital Nada Ascends into heaven:

Goes in one ear of God
& out the other

Newsboy Solidarity

Somebody asked me the other day,

Where are you from?

Are you from Butte?

No, I replied.

But thanks, I think.

Do I look like I'm from Butte?

You look like someone I grew up with in Butte.

I'm sorry, I said.

I'm not from Butte.
