I has a sad.

I am really sad that I accidentally zorched my little clutch of spam comments. They were sure-fire post generators on a morning when I'm suffering from a bad case of emptyhead, like today.

I had four or five that had long chains of text, each of which read as though someone had downloaded the consciousness of the love child of Sylvia Plath and Thomas Pynchon into an AI and then subjected it to random voltage spikes that made it blurt out "drdrebeats" and "cialis online" between paragraphs of soulfully-tortured word salad.

Alas, art on the internet is the very definition of ephemeral, and my ghost in the machine hasn't turned back up to replace what was accidentally lost.

The Moving Cursor wipes; and, having clicked,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to bring back half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears restore a Word of it.

Don't worry. They'll come back... they always come back... (insert Dr. Evil laugh here.)

I have a ton in my gmail account from the "email follow up comments" option.

I end up reading some of them just to see what the hell is going on, and I'm waiting for one of them to accidentally wake up an Old One, though maybe not accidentally.

Here's one from my spam box you can have, free:

"With Redhead, Verdon won her third Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical ; the show won the Tony for best musical and Fosse carried off the award for best choreography. Fosse was to partner star Verdon as her director/choreographer again with Sweet Charity and again with Chicago . (Fosse was to win the Tony for Best Direction of a Musical in 1973 with Pippin .) Fosse performed a memorable song and dance number in Stanley Donen ‘s 1974 film version of The Little Prince , and in 1977, Fosse had a small role in the romantic comedy Thieves."

In case you wanted to be lectured on the state of the film industry in the 1970's
