Silvr I would like to make a guess that it is beloved forumer Ashley but also I am not sure where the old thirsty tomatoes come in? Sundried tomatoes? What?

Yes, Lizzy! Ashley did those soft drink (thirsty) reviews (Rotten Tomatoes --> old tomatoes)! I know - I made that hint way too difficult

That's a puzzle for the original Ernest, the one from the books and not the movies.

Congratulations Lizzy, you are smarter than Ernest Goes To Jail
The man, the myth, the legend

PM me your ideas for terrible startups so I can put them in a movie script.

THAT is both interesting and impressive.

wigfield vs emmy and novak vs spiderman script is great, also ozeri vs freud (the "oh yeah mom!"-incident), sinbad vs franklin, gabrus vs hens... and so many more. the highlights are so dense they escape striation, and attempting to list them, or even dividing the project into a fixed unit of time seems slightly perverse:

the artistic genius in "the dream of the fisherman's wife" of hokusai can not be captured when divided into square centimetres... even less so when divided it into square millimetres. a square centimetre can accommodate a recognizable slice of octopus tentacle or a patch of unstyled muff, but a square millimetre? not so much.

are you experiencing that the project is akin to a comedy-fractal that evolves as you zoom in on it with repeated listens or that it is converging ever clearer on some solid geometric "haha" as you complete yet another orbit?


to dream of exploring hokusai's masterwork "the dream of the fishermans wife" without ever encountering its edges.
to wish the glorious spectacle of the tentacled romancer was a constant in ones lived experience.
to come to terms with the temporal finitude of the project.
the artist always already known, then, as the post-modern prince.
