People old enough to have been fans of the Pogo comic know the reference in the title, so I’ll invite them to enlighten anyone who doesn’t get it. But the impetus for squeezing a few minutes to post today is that Collision has a concert, tomorrow afternoon at the Gloucester County Community Church, probably about 2:00 in the afternoon. Our lead guitarist is not going to make it, but we’ll be debuting our new drummer, and our new rhythm guitar/female vocalist will be in her first electric show (she’s done a couple of support shots in acoustic gigs I’ve done). I’ve never been there, so I hope I can find the place.
Meanwhile, I’ve been negligent in informing you of Examiner posts in both subjects. To start with the political side, this week saw the addition of Stronger Than the Democratic Candidate, which should ring a bell with anyone who has watched New York or Philadelphia television, because Democratic candidate for governor Barbara Buono claims that it is unfair that incumbent Republican Governor Chris Christie gets to appear in all the taxpayer-funded ads promoting New Jersey shore tourism as part of the revitalization of the shore. We consider whether she has a case.
In the time travel field, we explain the causes of an infinity loop in Temporal Theory 102-14: Repetition, describe sawtooth snaps in Temporal Theory 102-15: Chains, and then Temporal Theory 102-16: People answers the perennial question, where does everybody go, that is, when a history ends.
As of tonight I have taken my first pass through The Jacket; I have about a week in which to make sense of it. It is worth watching, but looks like trouble.
On the subject of time travel, it appears that Eric Ashley has given us an entry in the field with Practise: Stand, which I know to be a time travel story from the comments, but have not yet had the chance to read. I’ll get to it–I did read all the ones mentioned last time.
I’ve overstayed my time; I should be back eventually.
