The Tribute


As ever, the strange, marvelous, broken, and mostly unvisited Life is a Fountain is...

I'd advise against it. It's haunted.

No. That's not reverse psychology.

Anyway, to today's program:

What do all these pictures have in common?


Yes, newsletter subscribers, you are getting two emails today along the theme: What do all these pictures have in common? One is from the Life is a Fountain Newsletter, and one is from here, the Clerkmanifesto blog posting.

It's a lot of pictures, all of people in the library, mostly at the front desk. It's of a pretty regular day at the library. Except for...

Well, that's the puzzle.

And it is a very easy puzzle. So easy, in fact, that it's not really a puzzle.

Let's maybe call it a tribute.

Or maybe this is what happens when I don't have Dan to pose for me. 

This is the plain version, the more unadorned approach that I am calling the "Nanu Nanu" pictures. They don't have any filter effects or editing, beyond the first complicated edits.

In your Life is a Fountain Newsletter you will be getting the "Shazbot" version, which has all kinds of filters and edits.

If somehow you happened upon all of this without being a subscriber, well, how odd. You are in for a reckoning with the nature of the World.

So lucky you!


  1. I never was any good at puzzles, except crosswords. I haven't the slightest clue wha is going on here, Sorry.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
