~Very little improvement in the construction of this instrument took place from the first intro of the art into Europe till the late Earl Stanhope applied the powers of his mind to the subject.
And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
Staccato signals of constant information
A loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires and baby
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry, Don't cry
~Paul Simon

~After the staff of a newspaper generates a master copy of the paper, each page is photographically transferred to plastic-coated zinc or aluminum printing plates. Covered in ink, these plates then transfer their images onto paper in the printing press. The printing press contains cylinders that rapidly rotate continuous webs of paper, while printing quick-drying ink.

Pynchon 'Inherent Vice' Invades Raymond Chandler’s L.A. for Pothead Noir~Craig Seligman
~Editilla da'Bewilderbeast~Pothead Noir?
"Where “The Crying of Lot 49” (1966) uses Renaissance tragedy and the second law of thermodynamics as points of reference, and “Gravity’s Rainbow” (1973) and “Against the Day” (2006) are stoked with physics and history, you need some basic grounding in “Gilligan’s Island” and ‘60s surf rock to make sense of
“Inherent Vice.”
---And even with an advanced degree in 20th- century fluff you could find yourself bewildered."
