My brother used to do this. I mocked him until i tried it and found it was mighty tasty with a crunch of salt.
Fortunately I never made it a habit.
You may notice that I am no longer attending the Boston and NYC comic cons. Why? Because they were moved to different dates. I have not posted this until now because I was never told, and only by luck just looked at their website. Sigh.
So I now will be in New England the weekends of Sep 17-18 and 24-25 with no conventions (I’ve already bought the ticket). If anyone has ANY ideas or contacts or anything for conventions, signings, fests, etc, I am open to hearing.
When I was young, I found it fun to pretend I was drunk. Oddly, even when I was still young, I began feeling nausea from rolling down hills (and still do), despite wanting to delight in it. Little did I know how real the make-believe was.
Another theme from the movie “Seabiscuit” was how it would wait until in last place, remember all the times it failed and was held back, and then would leap ahead. I tended to think along the lines to Blake when watching it.
So… um… if you HAVEN’T seen the movie “Seabiscuit,” (or it’s been too long to remember), that was one of the key lines, “though he be but small, he is fierce” (which, btw, i think came from Shakespeare).
I’m in Albuquerque! Stop by! I’ll have Little Dee Books as well as my smiling personality. :)
I tried to avoid making pop references in Little Dee, but Duchamp’s “Fountain” has been around long enough and is important enough in art history that I thought it okay (in his case, though, despite titling it “fountain,” it was a urinal).

An English teacher of mine from high school once told the class that the point of education is largely so we could appreciate life. And there is something to be said for knowing a lot about a subject, because you can truly appreciate it more, you can see and enjoy the nuances. As john Crowley said in “Little, Big”: the further in you go, the bigger it gets.
Snobbery occurs when you forget that things can be enjoyed also on their simple intrinsic level.
