we costructed some nice simple hoop houses using 2" pvc conduit "hooped over" rebars sunk in the ground and covered with plastic. They worked great for a number of years until we could build our permanent ones.

Nabokov's Transparent Things

Finished The Laughing Monsters. Meh. So-so.

Still reading Cheever's Stories but I need a break. My intention is to read the whole thing but, good as he is, one tires of too much Cheever.

Executable code existed centuries before the invention of the computer in magic, Kabbalah, musical composition and experimental poetry. These practices are often neglected as a historical pretext of contemporary software culture and electronic arts. Above all, they link computations to a vast speculative imagination that encompasses art, language, technology, philosophy and religion. These speculations in turn inscribe themselves into the technology. Since even the most simple formalism requires symbols with which it can be expressed, and symbols have cultural connotations, any code is loaded with meaning. This booklet writes a small cultural history of imaginative computation, reconstructing both the obsessive persistence and contradictory mutations of the phantasm that symbols turn physical, and words are made flesh.

I dug The structure of the White People. I also dug how the story as told by the girl's journal was all over the place, as if it was a young girl recounting strange adventures. http://rxttbooks.blogspot.com/2015/0...-creep-me.html

True story hebrew gamatria was so complex that Sir Isaac Newton had to invent an entirely new system of math to interpret it.. calculus! Of course Newton legitimately believed he was decoding a hidden prophecy about the end of the world but...

well, I don't give up on books very readily, and especially if there is something there once in a while, but Against the Day was an exception. From the beginning, with the adventures of the purile "balloon boys" gang, it failed to hold much interest for me. The middle was a slog, like the Afghanistan war, just unending dust and harsh, jarring changes of plot. I put it down for a couple of weeks and came back at page 890 with 200 more to go to find these awful unerotic sex scenes and revenge violence mixed in with his unending descriptions of womens clothing. Festishistic, and not in a good way. After Mason Dixon and his other works, this was a real failure. So little humor, such poorly drawn characters. I've tossed it and started on Rupert Everett's Erasure, which has given me, in the first 25 pages, more than ATD did in almost 900. A real relief to drop it.
