Concerning Satan,

"His logic is simple: if there is no heaven there is no hell; if there is no hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge, and if there is no judgment then evil is good and good is evil." (Fulton J. Sheen)

And beauty, meaning, and truth are subjective.

This will be my last asemic work.

It's amazing I never saw the term "pansemic" before. Google just now listed tons of links to follow, so this week's reading is laid out for me. I too think Leftwich is brilliant and remember his being credited by you and DK for inventing trashpo. Thanks for all the info, DVS.

NBS, the newer definitions of asemic writing on the net generally give Jim Leftwich and Tim Gaze credit for coining the term "asemic" in the 1990s. Obviously people have been doing asemic writing much longer, but no one had explored, explained, defined the practice.

Jim is currently opposed to the use of the term asemic and is trying to replace it with "pansemic." But the cat is kind of out of the bag at this point. People get really bent out of shape on this subject. Pete Spence's attack on Kerri Pullo were inexcusable imho

We give Jim credit for inventing Trashpo in 2005.

He is some kind of genius.
