OT 9/27, Cripes, someone has to do it

Here we are, I suppose.

Stream of consciousness prompts:

-I've been spending the last half hour or so wandering though Accidental Mysteries, which is a collection of photographs collected by a husband and wife along their trips through American yard sales.  This raises a few different questions I suppose:
* Favorite photographers/individual photographs?
* Found art: does it work?
* Role of art in society.  Is it something one can be trained in?  Is it something one should be trained in?  How do you express yourself creatively?

-I've also been taking a class this semester in "The Lyric Essay", non-traditional non-fiction, so to speak.  Among other things, we've read "Wrens" by Eliot Weinberger and "Consider the Lobster" by David Foster Wallace and a whole lot of pieces thus far by Lia Purpura.  Favorite essayists?  Favorite essays?  Why?

-The existence of the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus has been recently brought to my attention by friends back home.  Favorite Seattle area oddity?  Favorite regional oddities non-specific to Seattle?

-And since we're mostly here for one reason alone, what relatively simple tasks do you put off more than seems reasonable?

 

Have at it.
