Proof of life — bookofjoe-style

Memorexad

Constant readers will know that I ofttimes prepare posts far in advance of their scheduled appearances.

In fact, I've already got several booked for the coming December holiday season and even one set for early 2011 (don't ask).

One problem with such pre-posting, as I've noted before, is that often links expire and are useless by the time the post appears.

Along with the fact that YouTube videos get taken down for copyright reasons and whatnot, especially when I've put them up right after they've appeared and the record company or whoever then finds them and asks YouTube to remove them.

But the bigger problem, I've come to realize, is that such advance posting causes a certain lack of spontaneity in bookofjoe.

I don't know that you can tell when something's been written months earlier but I can and I'm not so sure I like it very much.

So I'm going to cease and desist to the extent I can from scheduling stuff way ahead and instead try to be more contemporaneous — or at least make some allusion in posts begun earlier to stuff that's going on right now.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Wasn't Conrad Veidt great? And Claude Rains, too? What a voice! John Hurt sounded kind of like that before he became basso gravelioso.

Unrelated actually, but another extremely moving ending to another great film is this from Kubrick's Paths of Glory:

Figuratively.

Did you know there are 2.3 "Erm..."s in one "Um..."?

And speaking of France (see how I did that?), since this day has importance to moi, I'll honor it with one of the best scenes in one of the best movies ever made:

Oh I'm so glad to see this.
I didn't like to say.
I think boj might be treadmilling on a beach somewhere in the south of France, dis- & un-connected.

How long ago did you come up with THIS post?

Posted by: Nick B | Jul 13, 2010 9:12:47 PM

Ahhh...Peter Murphy...when he was an ad executive, before he decided to be the prototype rocker for all the Goth / Emo kids. It is a great advertisement 30 years later...
