Regarding eucatastrophes and Kevin Smith. | January 25, 2011
Today: The apocalypse is here -- JASON PETTUS NOW OWNS A CREDIT CARD. Click through for all the details, and why it reminds me of JRR Tolkien's concept of the "eucatastrophe," a suddenly great thing that happens to us for no rational reason. Plus: Did you know that Kevin Smith is now producing a new podcast episode every night of the week? Read what I think about it if you want.
Regarding podcasts, 'Girls Gone Wild,' and the neo-monk lifestyle. | June 3, 2009
I just had an experience the other day that reminded me of this again, plus just finished a book by Neal Stephenson called Anathem that deals in general with the same subject; so since I haven't updated this main personal...
Another Saturday, another afternoon of global cultural inhalation. | January 25, 2009
Yesterday I found myself once again doing what I've done on numerous pleasurable Saturdays -- making my way through thousands of random photos and indie-rock songs and blog entries and podcast episodes from amateur artists around the world. Why? And why so pleasurable? Today, some thoughts on the subject.
More regarding "the conversation." | March 3, 2006
So how interesting is this? A week after proposing a "tag" system here for getting responses to me without commenting, I've stumbled across a group of hiphop DJs in Canada doing the same exact thing! Today, more thoughts on why this might just be the future of online conversation. Plus: Does Fred Hampton of the Black Panthers deserve to have a street named after him?; and won't some sexy little stranger out there help me decide if cybersex is worth the trouble?
And the name of my new arts center is... | February 27, 2006
Why, it's the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, in fact (or CCLaP for short), which I can now announce because the website's URL is finally secured. Today, the full explanation of where this name came from, and why it was chosen. Plus: two new 'jasonpettus' tags in the blogosphere, and two new audio comments! Too bad they both recorded them in a way so that I can't share them!; Google, won't you please build the "Google Crossword Helper?;" and a little help is needed regarding whether I'm doing something wrong with iTunes.
[randommedia] Why not send me an audio comment? | February 23, 2006
An episode of my podcast [randommedia], five-minute random reports from events in my life. Here: me complaining about how I set up this ability for people to leave audio comments, yet no one actually doing so yet. Plus, a few suggestions on what you could comment about, in case you're stumped yourself.
Look at all the crap I got accomplished this weekend! | February 13, 2006
Wow, look at what an efficient motherfucker this new home broadband connection has turned me into! Today, lots of details of all the new things this home desktop connection has so far brought to my life, including: a recap of my del.icio.us account, detailed last Friday; how to now send an audio comment to me, straight from your computer's browser; new ways I'm interacting with Flickr now; a new service that tracks your comments around the blogosphere; I finally have an OPML feed (maybe); and of course lots of tweaks to the site itself, for geeky designers who care.
Das Audio ist hier! Das Audio ist hier! | January 9, 2006
Good news - all 24 episodes from last year's podcast of mine, [randommedia], are now imported into this Movable Type database. Today: how it was done, how easy it was, and what this all means for you as a visitor. Plus: a preview of my upcoming book of old black-and-white college photos.
Odds and ends. | January 3, 2006
Random notes, including: thoughts on if 2005 really was the year blogs tipped into the mainstream, and what comes next; thoughts on Google's "ads as a whisper, not as a bullhorn" policy, and why it's been so damn successful; why in the Information Age there will be no more art movements; what's coming next to this website; and more thoughts about the bitchin' 1970s Mercury Marquis.
