URGEnt purge 2 clear the Q + dawn a carnitas helmet 2 remap Manhatitlán P-2-Pier 2 R neural network


7/22/23 ... + now post # 1100, in a binary whirled that'd onely B 12. X a.m. walked aCross isL& of Madhat-N, thru Central Park, 2 th ferry terminul @ 90th st. + bot tix but we were a bit urly SO walked around Carl Schurtz park, a block from ware we lived when we 1st lived in NYC 2000–2001, on 89th + York (+ when we rite in 3rd person now iT menes my bedder-½ + i, ware "iT" = in4mation teↄknowledge-E). 5in¢e weave already walked every 5treet + 5cene most all th 5ites, th REMaphattan project 4 us = a bout REVisiting old haunts + triggering associ8ive flashbaX, seeing ch-ch-changes over time, deriverative Δ of (X, Y) over t. Weave 4med memerries of most every street coroner in aNYCity @ X pt.

We had planned 2 take th fairy up 2 The BronX /but got on 1 that started heading south, even th0 iT said "SoundView," th park in The Bronx we was aiming 2 go 2. SO we cruized on th Est River south 2 Wall St. pier then walked further 2 th tip + cot th Governor's isL& fairy. Weave bin 2 Gov isL& 1 ⊕ 2x b4, but seams i nvr mentioned iT B4 on 5cense. Used 2 B a place u'd bring ur bike 2 2dle around free of traffic w/ gr8 views of downtown + Bklyn, all th weigh 2 th Verrazano naRRows (+ ≈ th Stat-10 I-L&, ferry = free)

Governor's isL& = very diffrent now, there's restraunts + art galleries + 1 can go glamping (4 upwords of $900/night (2 stay in a 10-t) + it's almost fooly booked) + th fairy was bigger + packed. We don't member there B-ing nun of that B4. We walked around th isL& + then got fish + chips + a beer w/ a vu of downtown. Then th fairy baↄk + walked up thru downtown 2 W 4th + C train home, 11+ miles in toetill.

7/25 : In reading mode 4 Sleepingfish XX... naught that we (+ now "we" menes Garielle, BroLo + i) R getting a lot (hint hint... submit). iT's hard 2 evalu8 a peace, ⊕ atricuL8 wut iT 'Tis we'R after, SO off-10 my i's just glaze over a piece + i feel th author is trying 2 rite sumthing, that i'm B-ing told a story... iT's rare that i get sucked in 2 th X-10-t i'm not a-where of myself reading, n0 wut i mene? In a baↄk + 4th w/ Garielle, she felt it shd B "obvious from the outset that the writers need to get something out of their system". An urgent purging, an eXorcism of sorts, ware th riter ≠ righting sumthing, but that sumthing makes them rite iT, shdn't matter whoo rote iT, th writer = channeler. Th moment i C traditional versed poiTree, iT sets a pretents that th "poet" = writing a po-M. When sumthing = writ in 3rd person, specially w/ dial-log, i feel th author is "telling" a story + iT's hard 2 move past that, iMHO. i feel th same abt wut i read "4 pleazure" these dayz, az mayB i said in th la5t po5t, my 2-read pile always seams 2 balloon out of CTRL + i nvr halve time 2 read everything i want 2, need 2 B more picky abt what i eMbark on. My 2-read pile in F-ect = 2 shelves of a bookcase next 2 my desk, but it was getting 2 th pt ware stuff was 5tacking up on my desk b/c there was no more room. So in order 2 clear 5pace i sumtimes need 2 just B reel w/ myself that i won't get around 2 reading certain boox ≈ these:

  • Ken Kesey: Sailor Song—this has bin in my 2-read pile 4 a long time, mayB iF iT was a bit shorter i might tackle it. i dug One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but is this 500+ pgs worth th investment?
  • Peter Christopher: Collected Stories—going along w/ what i said above, hard 4 me 2 get in2 "stories," especially short story collections
  • Sam Lipsyte: Hark— ≈ Sailor Song, i found Hark in a lit-L liebury boox, i dig Lipsyte's writing but he has so many books + 2 more coming out in th fall that i'm looking FWD 2, more intresting 5ounding, 5ubject-matter wise
  • Murzban F. Shroff: Waiting for Jonathon Koshy—this just din't grab me in th opening pages
  • Jenny Slate: Little Weirdsth 1st few of these had my intrest, but her shtick gets old quick, a bit 2 precious. Guess she's fameus? Nvr herd of her.
  • Evan Isoline: Philosophy of the Sky—visually sum of Sky = intresting, but doesn't feel ≈ a book object, more ≈ a hodge-podge of poetry + texts in a font so small it was physically hard 2 read
  • Fernanda Melchor: Temporada de Huracanes—i loved th english version so much i wanted 2 read iT in th nativ Spanish, but realistically i will nvr get around 2 it, pero estoy vendiendo la versión en español en Amazon si la quieres
  • Douglas R Hofstadter: Gödel, Escher, Bach—also grabbed this when i saw it in a liebury boox in D.C. thinking i'd reread it, but realistically that will nvr happen. Even th 1st time in college iT took me at least a year ⊕ 2 2 read.

Guess that's iT far az legacy liebury box books, hear on out iT's boox i seek out 2 read + same goes w/ boox that ain't keepers, we'll either put 'em up on Amazon ⊕ downstares. AND now hear's my more manageable 2-read 5tack (what 2 eXpect in coming months):
