Compact

Dashing off to class in a few minutes; feel like I'd have more time to compose myself at oneword [via Dr. B's Blog].  Still working on the Point/PowerPoint sequence, so maybe I should prefer this format:

  • Sorry I missed Chuck's NCAA Championship game blog last night (which I can't link to right now because something is clunking up the connection).  Dr. Fabulous won the men's tournament pool with 126 points.  I lumped a whole 62 points.  Last place.  It was fun?  Chuck has me beat by 300 points in the women's tournament pool; at least I'm assured second place.
  • Following Mike's posts on composition's economies and informational commodity.  Meaning to get over there to mention that it makes me think about Marx's "reproduction of labor power."
  • Meeting with an appraiser later this a.m. (immediately after class!) to clear up her formulaic valuation of this lean-to we call home.  Count the ceiling fans, figure the square footage, peep at the neighborhood, see whether there are any piles of garbage in the yard, interrogate the ages of everything from the asphalt shingles overhead to the rickety steps at the back (which'll never pass inspection, I'm worried). Need to dump this joint by the end of June so we can load up for our move to New York. I wonder if anyone's ever sold a home by advertising it on their blog.

None of these are suited to PowerPoint; the words are hopelessly effluent in the blogspace.  Now to drum up some fresh roasted.

OK, I'll bite: how do you see the parallels to reproduction of labor power working?

It was a lazy bait, Mike. Sorry for dropping the connection without following it up. Will do that later today, I hope, over at vitia. I'm waffling in the midst of a few unplanned events; should have a few minutes to attempt a coherent entry very soon. -DM
