Views from Outside

Farside of the Moon.

Friends, have the last few weeks left you feeling that you're looking at Earth from a whole new perspective? Are you experiencing a certain Entfremdungseffekt from your daily media? Does the thought sometimes cross your mind that you'd be much happier on the far side of the Moon?

Friends, you are not alone. That's why this issue is so weird.

  • Some of us are thinking about other things. While I reflect on summers past, Freewayriding demonstrates his uncanny ability to photograph his dreams. We're suitably impressed.
  • A lot is imaginative in this issue: Willem shares an extinct tiger with us, Paulh retells a Native American legend, and authors of the past spin yarns. In the present, B4 winds up the epic 'Into You' with a revealing ending. Be sure to stop by and thank him for the entertainment.
  • Fascinating things have been seen around the world: from the rocky coast of Scotland to the busy city of Moscow, from Austria to Pennsylvania to Hawaii to the deepest, darkest recesses of the internet. Don't miss anything.
  • Awix has seen something weird on his computer screen. It's a cinema gem from days of yore. We'll let him tell it.
  • We have music and moving pictures, puzzles and features. Go strolling.

We'll be back next week with more Stuff. (Send more Stuff.) Keep warm, stay safe, and remember: 'pic or it didn't happen', but beware of Photoshop.

Quote of the Week: Most [playwright] beginners conk out early in the game because they try to base [their] play on personal reminiscence. This is not a good idea unless you are Lucrezia Borgia or Al Capone.
