Unfriendly for me = the human requires email to comment.

I was going to write earlier that I clicked yer chicago indy tv links and did not get anything but a blank image-field. Outside of that... l'see, yourtube ist gut... yourflickr, nice... chukl = the "quoi" photo (needs to be full size!)... I feel I might retire as your PR whatever (Like you actually needed one.).

Via headsup: Starting a new 'book' (a theoretical construct based on bound paper material that is mass produced, apparently) here myself last week, entitled, Work Music, also the title of my new six album music work two years in the making. It will not work as a 'blog' as it is more like a chronicle of some things and reportage I am pursuing. So I might publish it chapter by chapter, starting shortly on Indymedia global, the only place left for me on the Internet still - under the moniker, Chapter Zero. If you are up for pr'ing ME instead, constructive criticism ist seulement bienvenue.

salut m'amie!

pscript - bongo away, we need more drummers - too many guitarists (-;

daydreamer: thank you for the kind comments. i clicked thru the indymedia stuff and could not understand how u got a blank image field. the videos are quicktime, so if u don't have that on yr computer, that's why they don't work.

anyway, i'm interested to see what u're working on. are there drafts somewhere online i could peruse?

back to werk.

Ahh, I will try to get some video software installed on this computer. I just networked my old computer tonight, so I am 'between computers' - kind of like being between jobs/homes.

Would the summary be okay? (It still feels weird being old school writing and putting together a synopsis b4 it is written...)

Chapter Zero is a new blog chronicle written off-line with the intention of publishing on indymedia once a 'chapter' of writing has been completed. Each published writing is planned to be called, Chapter Zero, and the entire blog chronicle is entitled, Chapter Zero. It begs a question: in the fastest paced possible writing of the blogging era, what happens to traditional writing technique? Can it not be published today as well? Also, as its seems to continue along themes related to my last work, the iTechblog, it represents a de-emphasis on reportage and a return to more journalistic/secular form. The hope is to mark out boundaries with clarity and substance and not from bias of prior knowledge alone. I am only using one tool: my collection of mostly dated program software. Aside from that, I am an actor on a blank computer working from a blank slate, tabula rasa. No prior url's. No prior newsfeeds. No conditioning of which sites are best for which data or news. As I continue, I chronicle the precise extent to which I descend into employing past indexes and specialized techniques. But, by in large, even these may be uninstalled in favour of a stripped down approach.

Of course, I do not use email and therefore have no registration for all of the new sites and social networks. And so my work begins were it began and ended: on the indymedia global open publishing centre. Will I sink so far as to return to using paper? Will I return to the past and only work on computers if and when I can put all of my personalized stuff on it? Can I work with the Internet without some kind of guide or will I just follow the herd? Will Chapter Zero be ASCII-only?

One question I ask now is whether I might find the website I am publishing on in the same, tabula rasa fashion. If software is my acting tool, indymedia is my stage. So welcome to my script.

I just published it... so somebody will go over it and post it within a few hours on http://www.indymedia.org/en/index_open.shtml#openwire

tahtah and thanx for the interest
