I’ve been working on a post about speaking gibberish in improv, but then I thought of a quote attributed to Mark Twain:
“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
It may seem counterintuitive (because you’d think fewer words = less time), but it’s much easier to write long than to write short. At least, it is for me.
In other words, the gibberish piece is still too long.
So, I thought I could try cheating. If a picture is worth a thousand words, at least it doesn’t seem like a thousand words. Maybe by posting some pictures, it’ll be easier for me to keep the number of (written) words down. This may not make sense. Nonetheless…
Heaven forbid I post pretty pictures. Instead, here are a set of pics I like because of the elements of decay or, perhaps I could say entropy.
(As always, click on an image to see a larger version of it.)
There, that should make this post [worth] roughly 6,200 words. I hope it didn’t feel like it.
What words do you think the photos are trying to say?
