David Jones, artist and poet (1895-1974) begins his PREFACE TO THE ANATHEMATA :

'I have made a heap of all that I could find.' (1) So wrote Nennius, or whoever composed the introductory matter to Historia Brittonum. He speaks of an 'inward wound' which was caused by the fear that certain things dear to him 'should be like smoke dissipated'. Further, he says, 'not trusting my own learning, which is none at all, but partly from writings and monuments of the ancient inhabitants of Britain, partly from the annals of the Romans and the chronicles of the sacred fathers, Isidore, Hieronymous, Prosper, Eusebius and from the histories of the Scots and Saxons although our enemies . . . I have lispingly put together this . . . about past transactions, that [this material] might not be trodden under foot'. (2)

(1) The actual words are coacervavi omne quod inveni, and occur in Prologue 2 to the Historia.
(2) Quoted from the translation of Prologue 1. See The Works of Gildas and Nennius, J.A.Giles, London 1841.

TENNIS




We've been watching the Australian Open tennis 
on TV. On high rotation throughout has been the APT Luxury Travel advertisement 'Live Fully' - made with some irony, wethinks.

The music used for APT's 'Live Fully' comes from 
Major Lazer's 'Live Free' (2013)
... just this bit :
Look at me 
I just can't believe 
What they've done to me 
We could never get free 
I just wanna be 
I just wanna dream 

The 'Live Free' video clip features a homeless man wearing a NIKE ] Just Do It! ( TENNIS tee-shirt.

Live Free - unabridged 
Never got love from a government man
Heading downstream till the levee gives in
What can i do to get the money
We ain't go the money, we ain't gettin' out
Heading downstream till the levee gives in
And my dreams are wearin' thin
All I need's relief

I need I need some sympathy
Look at me
I Just can't believe
What they've done to me
We could never get free
I just wanna be
Look at me
I just can't believe

What they've done to me
We could never get free
I just wanna be
I just wanna dream

All of my life been wadin in
Water so deep now we got to swim
Wonder will it ever end

How long how long till we have a friend
Comin' down, feelin' like a battery hen
Waves won't break till the tide comes in
What will I do in the sunrise
What will I do without my dreams
Look at me
I Just can't believe
What they've done to me

We could never get free
I just wanna be
Look at me
I Just can't believe
What they've done to me
We could never get free
I just wanna be
I just wanna dream
We're all together in the same boat

I know you, you know me
Baby, you know me
We're all together in the same boat
I know you, you know me
Baby, you know me
We're all together in the same boat
I know you, you know me
Baby, you know me
I Just wanna dream

Hitoshi Shinso and the Responders of TAR

   
Hitoshi's Quirk allows him to mentally control people who verbally respond to him and, as a result, they will be forced to do whatever he wants. However, this Quirk will not activate if he does not will the brainwashing on the responder.

Though he can have multiple people under his brainwashing at once, he has stated that trying to brainwash multiple people simultaneously could cause him to fall unconscious. He is also unable to have his victims do things that require some kind of advanced brain function, like writing a name from their memory.

Using a megaphone or anything that makes his voice artificial will not allow his quirk to activate, which is why his Artificial Vocal Chords only modify the tone of his voice, and nothing else.

taggers of TAR : Matsuo Basho


見るところ花にあらずと云ふことなし、
思ふところ月にあらずと云ふことなし。


tokoro hana ni arazu to iu koto nashi,
omou tokoro tsuki ni arazu to iu koto nashi


There is nothing you can see

                                              that is not a flower,
There is nothing you can think
                                              that is not the moon.
