Live on the Internet: A Diary (April 3)


  1. Killer intimate stare! I can't believe they let you go. And it was a bad day for the internet. Too bright to see my phone and I got sick of it! can I just make a running commentary on your life on the internet every day.

  2. I like your voice when you speak about the internet. It is calm, serene, contemplative... I don't think my internet-reading voice would be very fun. I would probably have to translate a number of erratic, mindless gestures, some confusion, loneliness, and insecurity. I think the internet in me is a little frightened animal.

    Also: I thought about writing on your wall yesterday just to hear you read it out loud in your poem that night. :) Maybe I will do that sometime.

  3. I don't know where that voice is coming from exactly -- diary voice? Serene-stream voice? Hmm!

    I was kinda wondering if anyone would "intervene" into the project! Many more days to go. ;)

  4. I just typed a sort of long comment and then fucked it up and hit "sign out" instead of post! Why, technology, why?!?! Long story short: this project is awesome. I hear your call for intervention, and I'm thinking about it really hard.... Also, thanks for mentioning in your poem that you/the speaker would not be doing some cool New York thing were it not for jury duty, but sleeping instead. I feel that. :)
