    One of the very first stories that Sem told me about Sorabji was about Oswald Jr. I thought the whole story was pretty amazing. I didn't say anything but I was a little doubtful that ANY teenager was as insightful as Sem made Oswald out to be.

    He e-mailed some of his posts to me.

    Boy did I feel like an ass.

    There was some debate over whether Oswald was who he and others said he was.

    I read that once. I don't buy it. There was still a youthful element to his writing...that type of sincerity you lose when you start to get older.

    I felt inclined to fill Eri in on Oswald and Pilate when she first started posting, because if you did not know the back ground, you could easily put your foot in your mouth

    i still entertain the idea that oswald was a creative brainfart belonging to crimson.

    you certainly didn't act like that's what you thought.

    regardless, this is such an interesting situation.

    Umberto Eco said: "The American imagination demands the real thing and, to obtain it, must fabricate the absolute fake."

    this is all part of the anthropology of tourism.

    I'm studying! All night! This is fun!

    My dad just saw Umberto Eco give a talk at Bryn Mawr College -- he talked mainly about his new book, "Baudolino," which takes place around the time of the Holy Roman Emperor Barbarossa, shortly before the setting of "The Name of the Rose."

    Um, that's all I have to say about that. How do you like Eco, Gee?

    Yeah, was that from Travels in Hyperreality? That was pretty cool. I read that and Martin Amis' Moronic Inferno around the same. How dare them foreigners criticize the US.

    I can't remember where I read that, but it was included in my notes.

    it was just the one quote and I thought it summed up the article very nicely.
