The Poetics Of “Murder, She Wrote”

In 21st Century Culture on October 10, 2013 at 2:43 AM

    I adore Angela Lansbury.

“Murder, She Wrote,” is like a tonic for my brain. Feel free to object, but I think its ideal material for social gatherings. (Specifically, ‘Drinking Games’ or relative play such as Twister or eating obscene amounts of Halloween Candy.

The POETICS of each episode are wonderfully fun and according to its story formula, offer many chances to “Drink!”

For example:

Each time a guest-star or character role says, “JB Fletcher, the mystery writer? I LOVE your books!” Eat three handfuls of Candy Corn or chug half a pint.

When Jessica discovers the body, get out your beer funnels or that Giant Pixie Stick and guzzle.

Aristotle, Plato and Socrates postulated why the written form confines and endangers the theory as THE POETCS written by Aristotle mutated into 15th Century Neoclassical Ideals. Break the “Three Unities,” and die.

But in this case, the rules mean more fun, candy, beer, and yes, more people die.

Thanks JB!

Post your “Murder, She Wrote,” Poetics Game in the comments.

Little Moments of Freedom, Fireworks & Spontaneous Song

Surprised, I See The 4th Of July Fireworks From My New York City Balcony from Gidget Widget on Vimeo.

I was late for the party uptown. I looked at the clock. I knew it. I’d miss the fireworks… again. Then, BOOM! I ran to my window to look out and to my surprise a perfect view. So, after battling with the door leading out onto our balcony, I stood watching them, a perfect view. I had my phone in my hand. I turned on the video record and then, for no reason, I started to belt out the “Star Spangled Banner.”

A piece of life captured in its moment. Perhaps, little things like this, go unnoticed. Yet, all together they add up. Each of us experience these pockets of moments, insignificant to many, but special for those who share them.

Celebrating Independence allowing for freedom to experience life, here’s a July 4th record by a young woman in New York City, USA.
