Extraordinary Discourse 187

Shop Talk NOT

Ken Kesey and his merry pranksters (…) had been absolute technological freaks. They were obsessed with the idea of recording their lives in every possible way. They kept tape recorders running all the time. They even used videotapes.They used tape-lag mechanisms. They took movies of their own lives. They kept diaries. They had strange diaries in which you couldn’t write in your own diary; only other people could write in your diary.
