I love when real life emulates a Simpsons episode
Google warning that Apple will take zero percent of my Adsense revenue.
"Zero is a percent" borrowed from The Simpsons episode: Guess Who’s Coming to Criticize Dinner? (AABF21, 10/24/99)
Newspaper editor: … And to protect Mother Earth, each copy contains a certain percentage of recycled paper.
Lisa: And what percent is that?
Newspaper editor: Zero. Zero’s a percent!

this is my September wall-calendar image
I was flying into Chicago at night
Watching the lake turn the sky into blue-green smoke
The sun was setting to the left of the plane
And the cabin was filled with an unearthly glow
In 27-D I was behind the wing
Watching landscape roll out
Like credits on a screen
The earth looked like it was lit from within
Like a poorly assembled electrical ball as we moved
Out of the farmlands into the grid
The plan of the city was all that you saw
And all of these people sitting totally still
As the ground raced beneath them thirty thousand feet down
It took an hour, maybe a day
But once I really listened, the noise
Just went away
And I was pretending that I was in a Galaxie 500 video
The stewardess came back and checked on my drink
In the last strings of sunlight, a Bridgette Bardot
There's a hat on my headphones
Along with those eyes that you get
When your circumstance is movie size

Chicago Police came out in force to witness a few anarchists and communists speak at the Haymarket, May Day.
I watched one officer make an ironic Black Power fist for the amusement of another officer. He looked too young to be reminiscing.

abstraction partially because I flubbed the lighting on this, partially because it just was interesting lighting.
