Interview with the author:
an invention in three
superego: So, Naze, aren't you a little late to the party?
superego: I mean, this stuff might have flown in '95, y'know badges and weak buttons, pictures of cats, that whole sloppy funky look?
ego: Would it help if I told you that my eyes have a mist from a smoke of a distant fire?
id: Ah, I see...
superego: What are you trying to accomplish?
ego: I think I already covered that.
superego: ...little snot... Isn't it true that even you can't accurately recite your site address from memory?
id: Don't look at me. I wanted a personal domain name.
ego: Yeah, and aren't you the guy who used to bring us the technicolor nightmares where the puppet came alive and chased us until we fell in a deep pit in the hallway?
id: Um, yeah.
superego: So when are you getting the personal domain name?
ego: Jeez, do you think the hit count really merits the 3 extra C-notes a year? When it says "freshly fallen snow", it ain't kiddin'.
superego: What kind of plans do you have for this little experiment of yours?
ego: I probably won't run out of Stupid material -- ever. There are a couple more Brushes with Greatness to inflict on our guests. And we received an actual request for a sound file of us playing the viola which will probably happen.
I've also put together some notes for a couple of new sections. One is a compilation of people and things that share our launch date onto this planet, which will be called something like "Spawn of '64", and another that features harrowing stories of fatherhood -- "In Parentis Loco" is it's working title.
superego: That's very cute. Now let's assume that you are actually going to follow through with these half-baked plans of yours -
id: Hey, hey! Lighten up, Super.
superego: What we have here is a certain issue of a tree falling in the woods...
superego: You mean like this blatant rip-off of Lance interviewing himself?
ego: Actually, I've always been partial to People Chase. I've been bugging Karawynn to activate her squads of evaluators, in hopes that we can fool them into taking us on, but I see that she's been, um, busy.
id: Heh-heh, heh-heh. Busy.
superego: So how long do you think you can keep this going?
ego: Well, if history is any lesson then I've got 2 years, on the outside, before I completely lose it. But before then I'll have to gain a fanatical following, stalkers included, exert a strong gravitational force on the Web, then inexplicably withdraw my site at the height of it's powers and then just as suddenly return with a redesign. I figure it will be a lot easier to skip the middle steps and redesign next week.
superego: I see. Isn't that Maria McKee over there in a little black one piece?
ego & id: Where?! Where?!
superego: (to the
reader) Quick! Run!
Good night from the 3 of us,
p.s. Step in a little closer to the fire and let me see you.
p.p.s. If you swing by about every 7-10 days, I'll bake up something new for you.
p.p.p.s. Still eternally grateful to the Frayed One, for making Days his Link of the Moment for August 7 - 10. However, hits have taken a dive since so we're looking for a new benefactor. Will work for links. [give it a rest, naze. go to bed. -the editors]
