Mira and the Intruders* Present …

Epiphany 2012: An Exercise
in Bulk Apperception

This post was suggested by a Marrific photo posted today,
by a New Orleans song as played by Bix Beiderbecke,
by a trailer for a new Zemeckis film that appeared at YouTube
on the way to the New Orleans song, and by
the longing for Bix by Mira Sorvino in "Intruders."

The YouTube Bix date, Jan. 6, 2012, suggested a trip back
to that date via a Zemeckis Cube (see "Ready Player One.")

and the Strand Book Store remained  oases
for cultural and intellectual stimulation."

The Bell

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 6:11 PM

Three hidden keys open three secret gates
Wherein the errant will be tested for worthy traits
And those with the skill to survive these straits
Will reach The End where the prize awaits

— Ready Player One , by Ernest Cline

"Look, my favorite expression is,
'When you go up to the bell, ring it,
or don’t go up to the bell.'
We’ve gone too far. We have to ring the bell."

Mel Brooks on "The Producers"
     in The New York Times  today.

From the weblog of Ready Player One  author Ernest Cline —

"Recently, a lot of people have asked me if a real person
inspired the character of James Halliday, the eccentric
billionaire video game designer in my book. Steve Jobs
and Steve Wozniak are both mentioned in the text,
because their world changing partnership inspired the
relationship between James Halliday and Ogden Morrow,
with Morrow being a charismatic tech industry leader like
Jobs, and Halliday being the computer geek genius of the
duo like Woz. But the character of James Halliday was
inspired by two other very different people.

As I told Wired magazine earlier this year, from the
beginning, I envisioned James Halliday’s personality as
a cross between Howard Hughes and Richard Garriott.
If I had to break it down mathematically, I’d estimate that
about 15% of Halliday’s character was inspired by
Howard Hughes (the crazy reclusive millionaire part), with
most of the other 85% being inspired by Richard Garriott."
