"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
"Mind what you have learned."

Took a cab home from Factory tonight. Get in, sit back. Suddenly, from the front seat:

"Stopped they must be; on this all depends. Only a fully-trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor."

So without thinking, I exclaim "Dude?!" and lean forward to see a DVD player set up on the console. Cabbie asks if I said something, and I mention how unexpected Empire Strikes Back is in this context.

This city is so odd.
