Published tonight on medium.com – am still finding my way around the writing space. I find it makes me actually go over my words like 4 or 5 times rather than my typo-ridden blurt here. But anyhow, the real truth behind the origin of the Internet
I could have just as well written it here. And I just was about to publish and was looking at what I had blogged here– I kind of grumble at some people who write in one place with just a link elsewhere.
This was a post idea that literally came to me in the shower, though I am pretty sure I’ve written parts of this in some aspect here. But it is one of those cases where most of the blogging takes place away from the blog– in my head. There is always more than works itself as I write, and things are moved, chopped, added. But the thought out ones are fun to work with.
The addition tonight was thinking about all of those writing projects I did in Middle and High School, and how my teachers really ate up the ones where I took an existing story and mockified it. I actually still have many of my school reports and papers. Again, my Mom’s presence because she had them all in a box in her garage.
So I knew I still had a copy of my rip on the King Arthur story as The Legend of King Archive and the Drivers of the Round Lot
That was a dangerous potential rat hole as I opened the box in my closet with these memory papers. Not for ant sadness, just that I knew I could lose myself in poking through the old stuff.
But yeah, take a smart-ass kid raised on network TV and MAD magazine, toss him into the internet, and he finds his place in the universe mocking up old movie posters and radio shows in ds106.
