I Ink, Therefore I Am

...facts are illusions...23 day rejection on a poem from ByLine, handwritten on a piece of paper, saying they can't take it because it would not fit in their two column format.

I am both disappointed and pleased. See if you can guess why!

And while I'm in a philosophical mood, I must point out to one and all Action Philosophers!, a comic book starring, yes, philosophers. Real ones. Check out the two freebies, Bodhidharma: Grandmaster of Kung-Fu! (link at the bottom) and Plato: Wrestling Superstar of Ancient Greece. Issues are themed: first one was (literally) action, next is sex, and the rest?

Tentative themes of future issues are “ACTION PHILOSOPHERS GUIDE TO WORLD DOMINATION”, “ACTION PHILOSOPHERS ALL-HATE THE FRENCH SPECIAL” and my personal fave - “ACTION PHILOSOPHERS SELF-HELP GUIDE FOR STUPID UGLY LOSERS”.
First, action figures; now, comic books. I expect someone to come out with a Halo mod to let you try gunning for the Buddha any day now.

Reading: The Crying of Lot 49, by Thomas Pynchon. No, really.
