Random Monday

A person might ask on which day this blog is *not* random. A person might.

What I initially meant to post, a juxtaposition (à la "Dr. Fabulous" ):

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame today (well, besides Van Halen): Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. Grandmaster Flash came up with the technique called cutting:
"The Quick Mix Theory", which encompassed the innovative technique of "cutting", is the technique of using duplicate copies of a vinyl record and scientifically and percussively rearranging the arrangement of the music and extending the break parts of songs.

And then there's Foucault:
knowledge is not made for understanding, it is made for cutting (from "Nietzsche, Genealogy, History")

But that was before I saw that Michael Bérubé really *is* retiring his blog.

And to think I complained about those acute accents. They really aren't so hard to remember to put in.

In addition to a few of my favorite rhet/comp blogs, Michael's was among the first blogs I lurked on (back in the day before I blogged myself). I never really stopped lurking there, I have to say. I can't recall whether I ever commented over there (goodness knows he wasn't hurting for comments). But I did link to something over there now and again. So that's something. And I always read.

When bloggers say good bye, I just feel sad. So no matter how strange it is, I'm mixing cuts and tears. So it is, on this random blog.

It won't truly have effect, I suppose so.
