Brick Joke

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 10:56 AM

The “bricks” in posts tagged Octad Group suggest some remarks
from last year’s HBO “Watchmen” series —

“(this is the famous Kummer abstract configuration )”
Igor Dolgachev, ArXiv, 16 October 2019.

As is this

.

The phrase “octad group” does not, as one might reasonably
suppose, refer to symmetries of an octad (a “brick”), but
instead to symmetries of the above 4×4 array.

Anywhere in Years

Filed under: General — m759 @ 10:27 PM

" In 1965, Mr. Simmons, an incisive, erudite reviewer and essayist,
won a William Faulkner Foundation Award for Powdered Eggs  [ 1964 ],
recognized as a notable first novel. (He wryly called it his
'64th first novel.') The Boston Globe  said it was 'certainly among
the outstanding fictions of the ′60s.' [ Later, in 1971,* ] The novelist
Harry Crews heralded him as 'one of the finest comic voices to appear
anywhere in years.' "

— Sam Roberts in New York Times  obituary this evening

See also Harry Crews in this journal.

Roberts says Simmons also wrote "a savage sendup of  The New York Times
Book Review
, where he had worked as an editor for three decades."

Fearful Cold Intelligence

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: — m759 @ 7:00 AM

"Dreams are sleep's watchful brother, of death's fraternity,
heralds, watchmen of that coming night, and our attitude
toward them may be modeled upon Hades, receiving, hospitable,
yet relentlessly deepening, attuned to the nocturne, dusky, and
with a fearful cold intelligence that gives permanent shelter
in his house to the incurable conditions of human being."

— James Hillman, conclusion of
The Dream and the Underworld  (Harper & Row, 1979)

In memory of Raymond Edward Alan Christopher Paley

For those who like such things, an excellent Marxist analysis of Watchmen from another fan:

Whitson, Roger. “Panelling Parallax: The Fearful Symmetry of Alan Moore and William Blake.” ImageTexT: Interdisciplinary Comics Studies Vol. 3 No. 2 (2007). Dept. of English, University of Florida.

Whitson’s subject, Alan Moore, is the author of the Watchmen graphic novel. Moore’s style seems less suited to the Forth family pictured above than to Lindsay Lohan fans– who may also enjoy another graphic novel by Moore, Lost Girls.

More Lohan material related to her role in “Georgia Rule“–

Damnation Morning Continued (March 16).

Further background:

“The film realizes that if people actually fought crime, they’d most likely be crazy. Take The Comedian for an example. He fights crime, sure. He’s also a raging alcoholic.” –“Watchmen’ a flawed masterpiece,” by Ryan Michaels
