well, i hesitate to tell you what this is about...

in fact it is about the meanings and associacions the sentence can generate, right?

you proved me right, because you understood it in a way quite different to what the "original" meaning was

in fact yours may seem the first interpretation on face value, but there are others - of course you see them, i'm overexplaining

what i hesitate is to tell you where i got it from

which is prosaic, really

seriously though, i like the unintnded implications of these one liners. i do it myself and there are so many 'meanings' you can draw from so few words.

yeah, it was david lynch, in fact

i was at a library this morning, and they had a "sight and sound" issue there with lynch on the cover.

i went through the article fast, but a phrase caught my eye, something about how lynch shot the film (inland empire, i mean, which i think is fucking amazing, by the way) himself on digital, or maybe it was something more bad-literature style, like "he discovered the pleasures of shooting himself on digital" or something like that, meaning he was the camera operator, and that he found joy in switching to the digital video format...

that's it, so the "shoot yourself on digital" kinda order appeared to me instantly.

this one is on account of the "s'n's" guys, really

but what i'd really like is that you (anybody) followed my order and everyone started to take digital pics of themselves and posting them on the entry...

to start a digital shooting season/riot... that'd be GRAND

or it may become an "oblique strategies" kinda thang, posting instructions or commandments...

yeah, i like the idea of "oblique strategies". takes you to strange places and allows you to explore areas you wouldn't normally.
