Chancelucky Live and Offline now Online (update)

Okay, the technical lessons continue as I went from blogpost, to live performance with powerpoint, back to online flash presentation based on powerpoint. It's now much more viewable and understandable and no one has to download anything or click on funny buttons to read the text.

One day, it may even be funny. Feel free to comment.

The Karl Rove stories that served as the basis for the slideshow

Hey CL, I read through and enjoyed your presentation and even chuckled, I may have laughed if I'd seen it live! I'd have thrown you a phone for your cellphone bit.

Great that you did it at all and I hope someone asks you again to keep you on your middle aged toes.

I'm 42 but feel about 70 now and then when I'm reading other blogs and the same goes for attending concerts.

thanks for putting yourself through reading through the slide show. Glad some of it was funny even to CAnadians.

the oldest blogger I ever communicated with was 85. He'd stop posting at times and it would scare me that he'd died.

my guess i sthat we're both well on the far right hand end of the age bell curve for bloggers. I did send Bella a note once, "i figure you've by now figured out that you interviewed a blogger who's likely oder than your parents".

she didn't comment :}.

fwiw, I do think Passion of the Dale and Chancelucky probably work better with audiences younger than their authors. People my age tend to give me funny looks when I mention that I keep a blog. It's part of the reason I generally don't mention it.

Funny stuff. It almost seemed like a political stream of consciousness. I admit that I didn't read all of it, but I read most of it. There's so much that's laughable about with our current administration so I can understand why it's long.

thanks. Yeah, it's really long. I learned that I have this habit of constantly writing material. It's good for a blog, maybe not as good for a performance unless you also have the habit of cutting material while you're adding.

If you want, I'm happy to put you through the red screen some time though.

I rarely mention to anyone my age or older that I blog either as it requires more explanation than seems worthwhile.

And now that most Canadian homes have a magic talking box Chancelucky, we're aware of some American events and news, haha.

Next you're going to tell me that you don't live in an igloo and that you have all your teeth.

Sadly Mackenzie King seems to have been reincarnated as our president.

My igloo is made out of my teeth. I like to dance to the beat of a different prime minister.

I like this presentation a lot. Very cool new addition to the cl oeuvre. The Red Screen is super. I loved the shot with Darth & all the starched flags and a giant NADA behind him which is where he is leading all we fervent patrio-lemmings to. The Coulter transformation with red screen was simply astonishing. Even transmogrified her venomous drool. Gee, the wonders of technology.

This version of your vision does make achingly clear to those of us dedicated to the inner pict stimulation of wordswords just how potent photovizual images are. But then I thought 15 years ago that the illustrated novel or essay was the future of vidbooks anyhow so you've well begun. I'd like more. I didn't think it too long whatever.

Mr. Pogblog,
thanks for looking it over.
I really rather liked the whole red screen thing when I came up with the idea. Not all that many people laugh at it.
the slides that get no laughs is the reference to the Military Commissions Act and the MLK JEdgar link.

In terms of the visual stuff. the Dick Cheney/coffins slide seemed to have a certain power (once you understood the red screen concept) that really makes me think that it's actually better to use very few words if any. Pictures are weird that way.
