Pop Culture

The Barnes and Noble website has a whole new look including a search term cloud. It's a good reflection of pop culture and I'm happy to see that I have some connection to many of the terms. It's nice to see Al Gore, Alan Greenspan, Bruce Springsteen, Doris Lessing. Seeing Bible, Bob Dylan and Britney Spears on the same line is a bit of a jolt.

I love wordclouds. When I discovered them last year I wrote that they're like brain screenshots.

I'm not surprised at this depiction of Five Wells. This is a personal blog, so what's conspicuously absent is Campaign, Campaign, Campaign, Campaign, Campaign. Did I mention I'm running for Town Supervisor? And it's spilling over into my personal world.

But this blog reflects all the other things that loom large in my life: garden, honey, Maggy, time, zucchini, tomatoes, Charlie, bees. It's harvest time.

oooohhhh. I just did my word cloud. It makes me look like such a rebel. I'll post it later this week.

Mary Ann, I've been meaning to ask you. What hobbies do you enjoy?

Mary Ann said...

I'm so glad you asked. My word cloud made me realize that I don't write about my hobbies enough. Scapbooking doesn't show up at all. I'll take it to the front page and try to keep my tongue in cheek.

Why didn't you mention your hobby of picking up roadside cans for beer money?

Mary Ann said...

Because, um, it's not my hobby. Though I do work on highway clean-up on Route 366 with the Dryden Democrats.

Great wordcloud!
Wish you success in your run for Town Supervisor!
