Half and Half : last minute thoughts : hours before 2009
From 2008

30 X 30 [ my years in USSR and USA ] -- now, third life (African)? [pix] -- Ethiopia, Fall 2009

... trying to write [2008.12]

Crisis? How would we know? Any book was written about it last year? Any movie? A single song? Maybe a play? Anything?
That much for art and artists with their sensitivity!
TV -- and now the Internet, and what?
Is anybody still alive?
What does it say about our culture?
It's an indication that there is no culture. No literature. No arts and artists.
What other proof do you need?
"Change" and "Yes, we can"?
"I don't believe it!" (Stanislavsky's cry).
Do we even know what is wrong with what we have?
Money and economy is only the results, stupid!
I do not think that I'll continue my chronology with ... 2009?
I ran out of numbers.
I want stories.
I want to finish what is started. I am tired of counting.
What do I see?

Diary of A Webman

Diary of A Webman

Managing Director -- Esther Sellassie Antohin --

Saturday, November 22, 2008

from :

I want to have it for myself.
... theatre pages that are not for teaching.

 theatre theory pages... like my own library, with my notes, my marks, my memories.

"personal" as they say... what's happened to "personal pages" idea? "My Theatre"

... my position is marginal and my participation is silent.

Now where? ?

Lul Teatr  has changed all my plans.

E-blog [ ] vs. African Diary 
Public vs. Private -- I do not know how much online writing could be done in Ethiopia.
I don't know how much writing I can do...
2009-2010 will take me to transit from Artica to Africa, and what if Teatr Lul will be successful?
When will I get to writing then?
Most likely gets the most updatiung, my Ethiopian pages.
A-diary -- "African secrets of Anatoly"...
Janhoy - radio-drama, I have to energy to focus on it. and 1917 chapters based.

Sunday, November 16, 2008

With our move to ET, what will I do with my writing projects?
Am I ready for this fact, thought?
What can I show for my writing in 2007 or 2008?
Did I come with Teatr LUL to take my mind away from writing?

UK and War for Independence from USA.
US Election Spectacle is over. Now Barak will play Obama. How much change will we see?
Not unless the Grand Depression will hit the world.
The mob will talk, and Obama-president to echo them...
Citizens of the world? They cannot be US citizens!
How else to read the Republican "ticket"?
Poor Americans...
What to say about the rest of the world?
They want Obama to change everything in order not to be forced to change themselves.
How long will it take before they crucify him?

"W." and Oliver Stone

Very American, too American?
Unfinished story ... Stone doesn't want to see it through. He should notice that his presidential trilogy has some message -- Big questions about about America.
Who are you, Mr. Stone?
Mr. Stone stops -- and exists.
Is it the End of "American Century"?
What is next?
Is Obama that change? Is it enough?
Too late?
I wish one of my students would write about "W." and "JFK" + "Nixon"... But the critics do not write about Stone's drama.

Condi and Her Russian partners

The US Secretary of State released a coarse anti-Russian statement. This is because she is a single woman who has no children -- The statement from the high-ranking US official sounded like a reprimand from a strict babysitter that was teaching its baby to behave. It goes without saying that the largest Eurasian power is not a baby... Read the statement from Russian vise-Speaker of Duma -- and think about "diplomacy only approach" to

Study shows clearly: Media has been harder on Obama

Research from George Mason University's Center for Media and Public Affairs shows clear evidence that TV news has been mostly negative toward Obama, and more negative than toward McCain. That's right. The "love affair" of the media is NOT with Barack Obama. And McCain's followers can't see straight.

This post belongs to webmaster's blog :
+ -- I write it on "writer's" pages, because of realiazation that "web-year" (2007) was about doing webpages for THEM, not me anymore.
This is the biggest change in ten years (since the very beginnig of my webbing).
How else can I leave web behind?
"Web with anatoly without anatoly" -- that how it looks like -- "finishing" (fixing) my pages; because only I can read my mind (sometimes).
What does it mean?
Turning "notest" into "texts" -- a lot of work.
Short-stories and long-stories (two narratives) -- [ 0 ] and [ 1 ] starting pages. 
NEXT function could be  done through MENUs.
WRITE vs. WRIGHT [ reading and/or watching pages ].
  •  connection with web-aesthetics :
  • need to have different logos [ like the one above ]
  • different background colors?
  • layouts... -- somewhat related?
Another name (ID) = ant
ant vs. anatolant and anatoly
I need to think about it.

Diary Notes : I would like to have some 'system.' Not for readers (I am not friendly, especially to "users"), for myself.
To know where I put what -- and where I can find it.
I like the idea of "appendix" or "references," but I don't know how use it.
I made "dictionary" pages almost in every directory -- it would be nice to spend a lot of time on writing "glossary" (my own terminology I call "glossary").
Logic, at least.
I have to have "index" (first page to make in order to creat directory) -- and then two pages like "intro" and "notes"...
FAQ and NEW do not work for me: "New" (when?) -- it was new a year ago! FAQ - as if somebody ask me any questions!
Last year -- a lot of "2007" pages? But what is it -- inventory?
Even more rediculous -- [ 0 ] (new "entrance" pages in place of "1") ...
I wish Anatoly-Webmaster would be freindly to anatoly-writer, the only real user of my pages.
Oh, yes, the day was warm, but I slept through it and don't know for sure (working nights).
Silly me : I thought that my webmater's job could be completed by the end of May. The major updates at least. [ ]
No, I discovered many forgotten pages and directories (, for example).
Never mind, writing.
I do not know what to write about the meaning of my webbing -- in old directory : about social essense of www. To connect with and [ I hope I made this "2008" page -- "writing year" vs. web-year (2007) ].
Designated for webmaster only, and MS calendar for "writer"? Not sure that it could help me.
I try get back to writing through diaries : [ru] and [en] ...
Maybe writing in Russian is the answer.

How depressing: in order to work on Kino-Book I have to work on ... and write notes for myself in -- and so on!

As a result -- thoughts are disperssed and hyper-text kills text (narrative)?

I thought that writing in Russian would help (different style) and my nonfiction projects at could be not just mirror sites [ POV, Tech, Father-Russian, Without America ].

Post-America ("American Book") is better under the title "After America"? -- to write about web-tasks in 2008 (and after)... "business of web" = [ almost is social activism? ] & !

I want to keep my online existence and not to give it up, if I want to write book-style texts...

I am not sure that I want to reflect on "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead"...
I am not sure that I want to think about the show...

Emptiness -- that's what postmodern leaves you with.
Very "epic theatre" -- cold, even if smart.
Maybe theatre died, or died in me?
