In Public

Years ago I learned that all I need to do is have headphones on my head and people would leave me alone. That stranger who wants directions would hit someone else up. That person looking for volunteers outside of the supermarket would turn to someone else. That imbalanced person demanding attention would look elsewhere for that recognition.

Lately, in my quest for public reclusiveness, I have resorted to holding my cellphone to my head. I find that it deters most people, but for some reason a stubborn few think that they can interrupt my fake call for a request for spare change, etc.

I need to come up with a new public "keep out game."

I thought that the PSP would be it, but people just want to know what game I'm playing.

I am working on it.

Amphigory

Amphigory  (noun)Pronunciation:  ['am-fi-gawr-ee]

Definition: A parodic piece of nonsense writing.Usage: Amphigory is a word that may refer to any piece of writing, including verse, song, or prose, that doesn't make sense. An amphigory is very often a parody of some other, more familiar piece of writing or song. The burlesque connotations of the word amphigory (spelled originally "amphigouri") have been attested since the 1800s, as amphigory exemplifies the gross exaggeration and social commentary of burlesque theater. Webster's Revised 1913 Dictionary explains that, upon further reflection or attention, amphigory "proves to be meaningless."

Suggested Usage: Use amphigory as an antidote to the boring parody and satire everyone else seems so captivated by. See, modern parody is often very banal and boring, and the sharp commentary rarely skewers its target. We suggest you start with a staged political parody involving two lizards running for president of the aquarium. Civil unrest quickly turns into a bloodbath; hence, an amphi-gory! (Get it?)

Etymology: While various ideas have been proposed as to the actual etymology of the word amphigory, the origin of the word remains uncertain. The French word amphigouri might come from a Greek term meaning "to circle on both sides," although others have suggested that the Greek suffix –agoria, speech, might account for part of the meaning. As amphigory certainly conveys the idea of "circular speech," this etymology is commonly cited.

Galimatias

Galimatias  (noun)Pronunciation:  [gal-uh-`mey-shee-uh s]

Definition: Gibberish, foolish talk; unintelligible speech.Usage: The world galimatias, which itself sounds unintelligible, simply means unintelligible speech. It can be used in reference to speaking gibberish (or "gobbledygook"), although it is often used to describe a rambling and incoherent speech. Perfectly normal patterns of speech that fall outside the purview of an individual, such as legalese or a foreign language, may also be appropriately described as galimatias.

Suggested Usage: If you can't understand what someone else means, whether they're speaking a language you don't speak or just using words outside of your vocabulary, introduce a vocab word of your own: galimatias! Whatever the context, crying "galimatias" is a fun way to discredit the words or arguments of others. Best of all, it doesn't sound particularly mean; just kind of silly. (It is, therefore, to be used liberally around people way smarter than you.)

Etymology: When it first came into use in English, galimatias was also spelled gallimatias. It is French in origin. In fact, the word means the same thing in French—utter nonsense—as it does in English. It has been suggested that the word is a popular variation of the French term galimafrée, which means a medley. The English word gallimaufry, which means a mix or jumble, reflects this origin

Cacoethes

Cacoethes  (noun)Pronunciation:  [kak-oh-'ee-theez]

Definition: Compulsion, mania.Usage: When it first appears in many dictionaries, the word cacoethes is defined as "a bad custom or habit." Though it is relatively uncommon, the word has been around in English since at least the mid-1600s, with meanings ranging from compulsion or irresistible urge to a persistent or incurable ulcer of the stomach.

Cacoethes is perhaps best defined today as a "mania," almost an unhealthy obsession to act in a certain (often socially unacceptable) way. Less commonly, it may be used as a synonym for an overwhelming passion.

Suggested Usage: "I've got the need… for speed!" a friend will say as he revs up his car and speeds down the highway. You might want to explain to him that driving so fast is dangerous and against the law; therefore, his need is perhaps a cacoethes.

If a compulsion to do something is without regard for the rules of safety or acceptability, chances are it may be described as a cacoethes, which is a very funny-sounding way of explaining to someone that they really, really need help.Etymology: It is relatively obvious that cacoethes, a word which originally meant "an itch for doing something," was originally a Greek term. Our spelling and usage comes from the Latin form of the Greek word kakoethes, a bad or sick habit. It is further derived from the Greek terms kakos, meaning bad, and ethe, character or disposition.

THE STAX

Some classics

Last Helloween

If I don't know what to watch, then I am probably watching this.

It would do you good to check out the Bee-Gees put to metal.

I don't know why I thought this film was so funny. People tell me that the HANGOVER was better. I disagree.

The movie sucks. But SCARLET SKY is such a good song that it changes my feelings towards the film. THAT GOOD.

Yeah, I've seen it.

This man survived a polar bear attack.

Been chopping A LOT.

This is the best video game movie (made for a video game) ever, period end of line. I say End Of Line because TRON trumps.

How is it that you people have no idea about this film?

Got a line on a screener.

My best album of 2009.

Amazing levels of suck.

THE COMIC SUCKS, THE ART IS AWESOME

BLOOD TIES. Get your hands on this if you can.

DYNAMITED MYSELF

I am going to get into this Sarah Palin video game.

Best comedy I've seen forever.

Can't wait.

Robert Clift is totally the man for the moment.
