One thing about having had this blog for so long is that I sometimes find old blog posts and I only barely remember writing them. It seems I was on a pretty good roll back in late spring of 2015.
First I searched for what I had written about Coherence, an excellent low budget (almost no-budget) science fiction movie. It struck me that it was rather appropriate to the pandemic and quarantining. I wrote about it here (along with “performative statements,” which are cool).
I started to poke around right before and after that blog post, and I found these:
1) “Blew up the Internet”? In your dreams (in which I talk about artists and related subjects).
2) Ten-Sentence Flash Fiction (in which I write a really short story, much to my surprise)
3) Ornette Coleman (1930-2015), which then led back to this one from 2014:
I think my mother’s thoughts about artists from #1 and mine from #4 (taken from Ornette Coleman and Neil Gaiman) go together pretty nicely.
