    The Evening News: Aphorisms 

    television, news

    The news: keeping abreast of one’s irrelevance dot com.

    One popular news page, which collects stories from other pages tells us more about the morbidity of the editor, than it does about “the news.”

    These days, keeping oneself “informed” about daily events takes precedence over developing one’s self to live a more humanizing life.

    The news is never about what is happening, but is always about what has happened – a fast-food history textbook occuring in real-time, breaking, broken.

    How dispassionately we can sit and watch tragedy after tragedy. It is the sense of disconnection and a pinch of boredom that makes bad news tolerable, and maybe even a bit…enjoyable.

    Sometimes we crave the heebiejeebies.

    Trust me: “Who is writing the news that I am reading?”

    Experimenting with Squarespace: the restless modern 


    Last night I began experimenting with squarespace and may move The Eyeslit-Crypt over to the other side, at some time in the “near future.” The only damaging point is that I’ll probably take a hit in terms of traffic as the number of inbound links will be few and far between. If us “moderns” or “post-moderns,” or whatever we are, can be characterized by our restlessness, then I am a prime exemplar of that restless spirit. That said, as per the title of this article, I use the word “experimenting” on purpose, as I am just testing the waters. If I can achieve the design functionality that I crave here at WordPress, then there is no reason to leave, but if I can’t…

    What do you think?

    Edit: It was Samuel Beckett who, in Westward Ho, wrote, “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” At this juncture, if I do decide to use squarespace, it will be a supplement to this page.
