Sprezzatura pt. 2: the first brief estrangement of buttercup mcgillicuddy and lk shaw
Wonder why Buttercup chose such an ‘out-of-control’ version of Powerpoint. For that is all Prezi really is: Powerpoint
gone illogical. None of it corresponds to reality. This is the most
business-like alt lit has ever been. Indeed after this I wonder: will alt lit
become acceptable in the boardrooms of America? Can I finally reveal my alt lit
pseudonym among the business people I work with each and every day? I long for
the day when Beach Sloth will be in the boardrooms of America, right along
there with ‘synergy’ and ‘Pizzazz’. Goddamn I love Pizzazz.
states every Sprezzatura starts out with her being unable to understand the
technology. That’s okay. Nobody understands Prezi. Most of its appeal lies with
its complete inability to be figured out. Yeah Prezi is like love in that
sense, if love could be offered as a proposal on some projector in an anonymous
office park. Pleas for help are met with ridicule from Buttercup. He calls her
a ‘Luddite’. I’m a Luddite actually. Despite my online presence I have a
pre-paid phone that people find humorous. Those people who laugh generally use
their phones for checking Yahoo news or some other nonsense. Yahoo News is the
Entertainment tonight of news.
Lucy fights against the Prezi machine. Prezi is what ‘Rage against the Machine’
rages against, besides its number one fan Paul Ryan. Buttercup compares it to a
milkshake. I love milkshakes. Every time I drink a milkshake I think to myself ‘Wish
I had enough money to get delicious food all the time’. Later on I eat dried
food in my cupboard. Yes right now I live a dried-fried diet. Also whatever
snacks I manage to take from work or ‘free events’. I am the Post-Modern gather.
comes up of Lucy singing a song to Buttercup. Now Buttercup feels bad. Here he
was telling her what a Luddite she was and here’s this: a testament to their
true internet. She writes songs for everybody apparently. I am amazed. Who will
ever write a song about me? Will it be Lucy or is she in a committed
sing-writing relationship with Buttercup? It is hard to tell.
waits on the internet for people. At times the internet is a giant airport.
People wait all over the place to depart, to wait for new arrivals. It is a
confusing place. Glad that Lucy and Buttercup work through their issues. Hope
their online relationship continues to blossom in whatever format they choose.
