ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Buh-bump, buh-bump, buh-bump

Seth is working on a cool artist documentation project over at The Altered Page. . . it's always something fresh and lively over there, and participating gets one really thinking. Being a bit analytical about "What are we all doing here, and why?" Well, to my mind, that's worth at least as much consideration as, say, "How in God's name am I gonna pay the rent this month?" 'Cuz not only do we hafta pay for the damn garret, we gotta have something to hang on the walls!
