    Blueberry Hangout Agenda – Monday 9a EZT 


    Katrina is our scheduled facilitator for Monday. I haven’t heard if she’s available yet, so here’s a tentative agenda if Katina is not facilitating. (If she is, then our agenda will be whatever she’d like to set.)

    Blueberry Hangout, 10 Feb 2014

    9-10am EZT on Monday 10 Feb (EZT = EZTV Time = PST or California Time)


    1. Hello, chitchat, catching up
    2. Info, Questions, Feedback on Katrina’s O Lover! O Death! currently a part of Laurie Beth Clark (Spatula)’s Ossuary exhibition, and whose heroine, Edison Marshall (1950, 1850, 2500 BCE) we hope will be participating in Christa’s #1850charla
    3. Info, Questions, Feedback on Christa’s 28 Feb Event #1850charla
    4. Info, Questions, Feedback on Michael’s 12 Apr Event Fly-By & parent project In (The Dark)
    5. For our “PBR Discussion” I thought we might take a look at the interview Rhizome published in Dec between Italian critic/curator Domenico Quaranta and German experimental video artist Matthias Fritsch of Technoviking fame/infamy.

      sounds great! I have another video chat scheduled right before so I may be a minute late logging into Blueberries. It’s a lot on the agenda but I look forward to hearing updates about everyone’s projects. Talk to you monday!

        Hi Molly, Michael & Christa… I’ve not heard from Katrina or Rebecca yet… so we may be short of our “6 Blueberries” this month… what do you think of inviting someone else to sit in with us? Like Ciara? Or Kate? Or?

        That might be diluting the Blueberry “team.” Or it might be maintaining the team across natural evolution. Any thoughts or preferences?

    ## Affecting Speech Am I the only one… 

    Affecting Speech?

    Am I the only one who, when trying to talk like 1850 takes all the contractions out? As if people in history didn’t use… my apologies… as though they did not use contractions?

      Dearest, perhaps you are. Donnie slurs a lot, but I’m not sure that counts as contracting speech.

      Oh, I’d figured the style was rather more a consequence of Izzy’s breeding. You know, the language of the Italian Court – as in the “Queen’s English”, the (King’s Italian). As we know, the Queen has limited access to apostrophes and avoids truncations in her palace 😉

        IKR! Contractions are a small move toward vernacular speech and away from formal speech. Although I’m not sure if I avoid contractions for ancient “royalty” as just a simplification of any “ancient” speaker.

        Ysidora my BFF!? RU out there? How do you use language??
