Seanachai Quote

"Do you really think there are no larger answers to the small ones we can supply? Miguel, we know there are answers for everything. Unfortunately, we know very few of them." (Alexis Paninian to Mitchell Campion following a 4 minute teleportation from Paxton, Ohio to 3XNorth, 3YEast and 150Z off the Coast of Spain, circa 5/28 & 3 weeks, OSB airdate 4/7/1959).

The Lat[tice]-wireless Mail and Storytelling Machine

Looks simple enough, but oh jeepers creepers doodads
the Lat-wireless does a bunch of Seanachai work.
(circa 1888)
I am utterly exhausted.  I know that sounds dramatic, but I am.  The entire matter of unpacking the Lat-wireless, preparing it for display, writing out the instructions, calling the Midtown Ladies Authentication and Nonsense Carbon Dating Division to get the necessary permissions to exhibit the keepsake left me withered.  The machine that will mean a lot to some and nothing to others took me all day to put up.

There will be plenty to talk about later.  I expect to put it on the market in the next couple of days.  I'm not sure how it will be received by customers, who usually get one device for this and another for that.  This is a system made in 3 parts.  I am a woman comprised of 4.  The contraption makes sense of 8's and so it goes.  Tomorrow I will need to publish a post about cafe curtains and doodads, but I am taking this opportunity to get the matter settled - the matter of the all inclusive story telling machine.

The artifact documentation reads as follows:
Good Day:

The Lat[tice] wireless and Storytelling Keeper. This invention is based loosely on the scope that Madge use to talk through. The Lat-wireless is not a scope. Rather the Lat-wireless is a device Ruby bought from a mist maker and alchemist. The mist maker and alchemist’s family used the contraption during times when the family joined up with the Donegallegian Circus and Midway Show.

The summer salt sea winds disintegrated the crystal ball feature for the foretelling futures, but the remaining gizmos in the machine remain intact. Any seanachai (worth sea salt) is able to access the mail feature, listen to a recorded story feature, add a new story feature, look to see if a storyteller is close by feature, and its storage feature. Only Madge hear through what she called the “ears.” Nobody else would use a scope like a phone. Her producer at the time, a Mr. Tyion was not amused when she called to tell him that a phantom lurked in the prison cell of the cavern – a phantom with the name of Mr. Polk.

Later Madge and Mr. Tyion came into contact with their fears. They met the apparition in the cavern, produced a movie together entitled the Phantom and Mr. Polk, went on to act with him in The Cavern Christmas Carol, and they would like to contact Mr.Polk about the possibility of doing another feature film at his convenience (living, dead, or partially dead).

After talking for a long while (Ruby gabbing) with the mist maker and alchemist, she decided to purchase a few more items from him. These other parts (storytelling) continue to be authenticated and carbon dated by the Midtown Ladies Nonsense Authentication and Carbon Dating division. The division works only on special deliveries that deal with some kind of nonsense, usually inspired by thoughts of Madge Middlecuddles, currently coded a pug.

None of the latter nonsense matters to individuals interested in owning a Lat-wireless, authenticated this 4th day of August, 2010. Carbon dating fixes the circa (not circus) @ 1888. A nice figure 8 -- a number that depicts accurately how a lateral or linear story gets told. There is the front side of the 8, or the stuff that happens without provocation on the writer’s behalf. The back side of the 8 is the place where the writer finds elaboration, a convenient mistake turned on its noggin, a new character that pops up out of nowhere like Ruby one did, and magic (the hard work of revision and letting go). This 8 is the only number (except for a 3) that makes sense to Ruby, and it is the only mecca where alchemy actually does occur.

This artifact is hereby dedicated to my long standing adoration of "on their feet simulation writers," who know how to create a learning experience and to make it fun. It is a teaching method that should be replicated again and again. It is the only kind of teaching that sticks long enough to pass it on or down, according the mist maker and alchemist.
