More Than 200,000 Combinations!

Well, here's a treasure from the same year that brought us STAR TREK: The Motion Picture and Disney's The Black Hole. It's a blazing example of the limitless choice foreseen by Adrian Veidt in Watchmen.


Andru & Orlando are listed as artists. But there's no record of anybody being brave enough to own up to the text, which consists of a sentence broken into six sections, with accompanying "art."


You can flip the pages to any random assemblage, and while the resulting sentence may appear outwardly grammatical, that doesn't mean it makes any sense.


As you can see, below!

Y'see? Y'see? Your Super Minds. Super, Super! *

I just got a wonderful thing in the mail. It's a mini-onesheet for Superman Returns. But, it's in Korean, not English! How cool is that!



It's kinda neat to see this piece of Asian PR.




Look at the top line of text on the front side. Because of the comma in the middle and the exclamation point at the end, I bet that this line is Korean for "Look, Up in the Sky!"




And the tag at the bottom refers interested parties to http://wwwsupermanreturnsmovie.co.kr. That site isn't valid, but something similar is found at http://wwws.kr.warnerbros.com/supermanreturns/.




And many thanks for my old STAR OKC / SoonerCon buddy, Jon Powell, who now lives in South Korea with his lovely wife Jeong and kids Andre and Pauline. Jon's blog may be found at http://crossingculturessk.blogspot.com/.




Thanks again, Jon!




And y'all don't forget to write!
