Sayings of Editor Art – a dozen more

August 14, 2018

Numbers count!

Everybody’s got a book but nobody’s got a reader!

You are arguing with the tires, not the driver.

The camera adds 10 pounds? What did you use 4 cameras?

When the bottom bricks crumble the top falls too.

When you get to meaningless, you get to the point.

Journalism has now shifted from research, writing, editing, to an anchor asking, “What do you think?” or even worse, “What do you feel?”

When armed and trained police and security are being shot, there are too many guns in the wrong hands.

The choice, an armed state starting with airports, schools, and government buildings, or reasonable gun laws that keep guns out of the wrong hands.

With gerrymandering and other voting poll tricks, voting is more a rubber stamp then a consensus.

Those two women are beautiful in any language!

Q. Where did my glass go?
A. Scotland!

Lyrics

Bam! Bam! Bam!
You got 10 minutes more
Ready or not I’m going out that door

Bam! Bam! Bam!
Nobody gets in late
Either get there on time or they give you the gate!

Bam! Bam! Bam!
I think we’re just in time.
If we came a minute late, Id lost my mind.

Readymades (poems)

July 14, 2018

What are readymades? They are poems hiding in the prose of others. With a few touchups they make great poems too!

READYMADES

One is reminded
of the words of the poet
which I have forgotten
at the moment.
– P. G. Wodehouse from “Bachelors Anonymous.”

To be read?
Nay not so! …
Rather to be thumbed,
to be cooed over,
to be dogs eared,
to be rumpled
to be kissed by
the illiterate
ungrammatical,
dimpled, darlings!
(From Lewis Carroll intro to Alice)

Truly all things
have not been revealed.
But by long seeking
mortals make progress.
(Retelling of a phrase by Xenophanes of Colophon.)

Multiple levels
of consequences
– BBC Reporter.

The shadows grow
as darkness falls
– Glamorous Temptation TV Drama.

The sheer ecstasy
of existence.
– Charles Ephraim Burchfield.

Buzzing polinators!
– Science Daily article on Bees.

Waves erase
my footsteps.
– Glamorous Temptations, Korean TV, Final Ep.

I love being a writer
(but) what I can’t stand
is (all) the paperwork!
– Peter de Vries
