Amazon.com: buying info: Fuck Work
The page says: "This item will be published on June 9, 2001. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives." Evidently, the author practices what he preaches.

The VoxPolitics Manifesto 1.0
Where have I seen this before? I'm getting these deja vu flashes. Somebody help me out here. Wasn't there another manifesto like this floating around a couple years ago? Not so btw, I'm reading Joan Didion's Political Fictions -- and I thought I was jaundiced! Great stuff, though there is some truth in the Amazon reader-review complaints that her style is a tad convoluted. Good thing no one's ever said that about me.

Automotive Design & Production
"All of us have been schooled during the past several years that we must abide by 'best practices.' But Locke notes, 'I hope to provide a new kind of model demonstrating to business that it not only can, but must move beyond its unhealthy fear of error and imprecision. Today it is certainty that is not an option. Failure is almost guaranteed.' So fail and move on until you find success. Then screw up some more because your success will be fleeting -- at best. Worst practices can work."

Borders Best Business Books for 2001
"Christopher Locke is Internet marketing's bad boy. He's so vocal in his opinions that he earned the monicker 'Rageboy' for the way he fulminated against those who brought traditional business thinking to the Internet. A coauthor of The Cluetrain Manifesto, Locke was listed in a 2001 Financial Times Group survey as one of the 'top 50 business thinkers in the world.' Gonzo Marketing is Locke's contrarian manifesto about how companies should and shouldn't communicate to customers via the Internet. It's a ferocious performance in which the author looks far beyond any narrowly conceived notion of 'business' toward larger cultural questions about how we want to interact with one another."

wounded and desperate, sick, soul wrapped in darkness, no patience for reason, no time for truth. speak from that place. find your voice there.

oh joy
love you bring
oh joy
make my heart sing

and i drove across the desert
i was in my four wheel drive
i was looking for the buddha
and i saw jesus christ

he smiled and shrugged his shoulders
and lit a cigarette
said jump for joy
make some noise
remember what i said

my soul is a like a ruby
and i threw it in the earth
but now my hands are bleeding
from scrabbling in the dirt
and i look up to the heavens
and a light is on my face
i never never never
thought i'd find a state of grace

hey joy
love you bring
oh joy
make my heart sing
oh joy
joy in everything

joy joy joy oh joy
joy joy joy oh joy

i was drowning in the darkness
as i drove down to the sea

joy joy joy oh joy

and i looked up to the mountain
and the light burst over me
joy joy joy oh oh joy

you make me sing
oh joy
the love you bring
you make me sing
oh joy
in everything
in everything

jump for joy
jump for joy
jump for joy

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.

...the ventriloquial voice is both an attempt to imagine and pit the the speech of the body against the speech of culture, and an attempt to control that illegitimate speech, to draw it into discourse...
