This reminds me a little of George MacDonald Fraser's fabulous The Hollywood History of the World. Have you read that one?

I like the topic of this blog. (I heart maps, and mapping.) But I'm having a hard time with the font. Looks funny on my puter. (one side of a letter being more bold than another.)

gwenda: no i haven't, but i obviously should! i'm a big flashman fan but haven't read any of his other stuff.

melissa: hmmm, that's strange. the text for the posts is in helvetica, which is a pretty basic font. i'll check it out. please let me know if you keep having this problem.

to answer your question about what will happen, claire, if you're hip to quantumm and superstring theory (and i believe you are), you know that all possible events transpire across each universe among the infinite number of universes that exist (it is, i believe, the superstrings that cross n-space to connect these universes, but i could be getting my details all cockamamie).
at any rate, in the quantuum sense, there's therefore no incompatibility among events in potentially competing films for any given timeslot: they happen at the same time, but in different universes.

or, as someone else once said, "everything is true. nothing is permitted."

claire

okay, but then how do you map that?

dkp

easy: take a piece of paper. cover the entire paper with a mark that indicates an event. stop when the entire paper is covered.

  • The books one reads in childhood, and perhaps most of all the bad and good bad books, create in one's mind a sort of false map of the world, a series of fabulous countries into which one can retreat at odd moments throughout the rest of life, and which in some cases can survive a visit to the real countries which they are supposed to represent.
    -- George Orwell


    Geography and space are always gendered, always raced, always economical and always sexual. The textures that bind them together are daily re-written through a word, a gaze, a gesture.
