Omnishambles is awesomeness.
Guac…meh. Not sure it is a word.
From Skype chat:
I’m in USA now…
[6:52:24 AM] Jordi Comas: Dreading the long task of sorting, organizing, cataloging, printing blogging, blog-to-booking all the photos. And then the videos. Oy Vay! Fuck it…. it was easier when you just sent a roll of film to the shop.
Also on my FB feed…
Burrito thought. is there some sort of Burrito aesthetic I don’t know about? That dictates the ingredients be like in strata inside the burrito? Because I’d rather have more mixing. Why not put all ingredients in a bowl (at like an eatery), THEN nix them and then into burrito. More bite similarity across the eating experience.
Comment thread from FB:
So, several important themes are here.
1) Why have no burrito joints created this innovation? are there costs to bowls and cleaning that make it not viable?
2) If people want it, why have the markets not provided what we want?
3) Are there proper aesthetics or culinary philosophies guiding burrito creation and consumption?
Found this gem buried in Alan Meyer’s (and Tsui and Hinnings) essay on Configurational Analysis….
The history of life contains “long periods of boredom and short
periods of terror.”
Stephen Jay Gould, The Panda’s Thumb
I realize now this essay for me was a key link from the kind of deterministic quality of pop ecology stuff and the re-emergence of institutional theory point to where I mean to be myself: moving beyond a kind of narrow fit to envronment of contingency theory to one that sees a multivariate and dynamic relationship betwenn an organization,, multiple fields, and complex environments.

There are other things, but this film looks really cool tonight at 7 at Campus.
This is not a Film. It turns an Iranian filmmaker's, Jafar Pahani, ban into its own movie.
