Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 12:59 PM

The recent post "Tales from Story Space," about the 18th birthday
of the protagonist in the TV series "Shadowhunters" (2016-),
suggests a review of the actual  18th birthday of actress Lily Collins.

Collins is shown below warding off evil with a magical rune as
a shadowhunter in the 2013 film "City of Bones" —

She turned 18 on March 18, 2007.  A paper on symmetry and logic
referenced here on that date displays the following "runes" of 
philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce

Wikipedia on author Michael Connelly

Connelly had planned on following his father’s early choice of
career in building construction and started out at the 
University of Florida in Gainesville as a building construction major.
After earning grades that were lower than expected, Connelly went
to see Robert Altman’s film The Long Goodbye (1973) and was
enchanted by what he saw. The film, based on Raymond Chandler’s 
1953 novel of the same name, inspired Connelly to want to become
a mystery writer. Connelly went home and read all of Chandler's
works featuring Philip Marlowe, a detective in Los Angeles during
the 1940s and ‘50s, and decided to switch majors to journalism with
a minor in creative writing.[4] He was a student of Harry Crews.

as a muse for the project … ‘ “

Entertainment Theory

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: — m759 @ 1:00 PM

From "Entertainment," a 1981 story by M. A. Foster—

"For some time, Cormen had enjoyed a peculiar suspicion, which he had learned from his wanderings around the city, and cultivated with a little notebook, in which he had made a detailed series of notes and jottings, as well as crude, but effective, charts and maps of certain districts. 'Cormen's Problem,' as it was known, was familiar to the members of the circle in which he moved; in fact, if he had not been so effective with his productions and so engaging in his personality, they might have considered him a bore.

It seemed, so the suspicion went, that the city was slowly shrinking, as evidenced by abandoned districts along the city edges. Beyond the empty houses were ruins, and beyond that, traces of foundations and street lines. Moreover, it had recently dawned on him that there were no roads out of the city, although there were no restraints. One hardly noticed this—it was the norm. But like many an easy assumption, once broken it became increasingly obvious.

Cormen's acquaintances were tolerant of his aberration, but generally unsympathetic. What he needed was proof, something he could demonstrate in black and white—and color if required. But the city was reluctant, so it appeared, to give up its realities so easily. The Master Entertainment Center, MEC, would not answer direct queries about this, even though it would obediently show him presentations, pictorial or symbolic as he required, of the areas in question. But it was tiresome detail work, in which he had to proceed completely on his own."
