WHEN: 7:08am EST, April 4th, 2012
WHERE: My apartment in Portland, ME (Isla Nublar)
FORMAT: Blu-Ray on a Vizio 32″ LED HDTV, English subtitles on
COMPANY: Girlfriend Becca until she left for work at 7:22am EST
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STATE: Very sleepy from staying up late to pull third shift at work tomorrow, really hot (our apartment is over the boiler and it’s been hot out when it should be cold)
FOCUS OF THIS WEEK’S STUDY: Let’s Google Top Gun!
Because I’m an authentically cheerful and authentically creative authentic person in an authentic experiment, I thought I’d have a little authentic fun this week!
While watching Top Gun (with the English subtitles on), I wrote down lines of dialogue that made me wonder: if I typed this into Google images, what’s the first picture that would come up? After finalizing a list of 30 phrases (and trying not to hum “Mighty Wings” once the credits ended), I hit the web.
Here are my findings. Please enjoy the collage-poem I simply call… “Top Google.”
cougar and merlin and maverick and goose
goose you see a trailer
lock up baby

the tip of the spear must be sharp

Aww yeah. Using art to make more art. Go show that to your creative writing professor or your depressed friend. See how their souls jiggle now.
Time to hit the slam circuit, my little ones.
