Black, disabled, lesbian Muslim feminazi, wasn’t it?

3. Interesting tale:

In 1924, American literary scholar and author Paul Jordan-Smith adopted a new identity: Pavel Jerdanowitch, an avant-garde Russian artist whose visceral paintings would beguile modern art critics. Parading as Jerdanowitch for the next three years, Jordan-Smith gained traction at the helm of his one-man art movement, which he called Disumbrationism.

4. The WWW, but not as we know it, tim:

    When I become Supreme Overlord my third act, after banning the wearing of baseball caps backwards and all forms of rap “music” will be to forbid men to wear shorts unless within 100 yards of the sea or participating in an organised athletic or sporting activity. The penalty for violation of this edict will become death if the shorts are worn with black socks.

      I [cough] have shorts on now, plus hoody but it’s indoors – is that a reprieve?

        That’s the problem with trying to be a benevolent Overlord. On the one hand it doesn’t seem unreasonable to permit them when not in a public space, on the other hand the ban on rap in all its forms would have to be absolute. Where to draw the line? Perhaps I’ll move the question further down the list so as to defer a decision.

          The ongoing conundrum, oh Kaigat.

      The liklihood of your accession to Supreme Overlordship is quite small, sir. You have to have my permission. There is a ritual, which involves your wallet, that could shorten the long, involved path.

        Alas! In these difficult and dishonest times it’s hard to know who is who in the online world. Are you in fact THE Amfortas or merely a pretender? How can we be sure?

      And especially if those black socks are worn with athletic shoes.

      Unless, of course, one is a snowbird on a beach…

        These are the questions which beset us round in 2019.
