The number of useful sites on the internet never fails to impress me. For instance, this site ( http://www.rinkworks.com/dialect/ ) will translate a web site into a number of dialects, including redneck, jive, and Swedish Chef.

Is there a web site you are proud of? Schaumburg, for instance?

"Dank ya' fo' visitin' de official web site uh de Village uh Schaumburg, Illinois. Aldough Schaumburg be de largest centa' of economic development in de State uh Illinois, outside da damn City uh Chicago, we is still real much some community uh neighbo's and neighbo'hoods.

Or maybe Concord?

From the same site, there's the Postmodern Essay Generator at http://www.elsewhere.org/cgi-bin/postmodern/ . It seemed wildly appropriate a week ago, when I had a date with a woman who is a college professor in postmodern philosophy.

Modernism and capitalist neodialectic theory
T. Paul la Tournier
Department of Politics, Cambridge University
1. Realities of absurdity
"Class is unattainable," says Lyotard; however, according to Hamburger[1] , it is not so much class that is unattainable, but rather the defining characteristic, and hence the stasis, of class. Many appropriations concerning cultural narrative may be revealed.

Therefore, in Sex, Madonna affirms capitalist neodialectic theory; in Erotica, although, she denies postmaterialist feminism. Any number of modernisms concerning the bridge between language and society exist.

In a sense, Hanfkopf[2] suggests that the works of Madonna are postmodern. Sontag suggests the use of predeconstructivist objectivism to attack outdated perceptions of narrativity. But a number of theories concerning postmaterialist feminism may be discovered. If modernism holds, we have to choose between capitalist neodialectic theory and the capitalist paradigm of narrative.

(continues on for several more paragraphs)


Believe it or not, I had to take a class in future studies and postmodern philosophy in grad school, as a prerequisite for my MUP. (!) The essays we read were exactly like this. I found that if I mentioned The Simpsons, Laurie Anderson, and Divine in an essay, I had a pretty good shot at getting an A.

Useful websites!

The dilect website finally allowed me to read my homeown South Carolina newspaper in my native tounge. T'aint dat sum'n spashul!


Now that I've used the bandname generator I have an excuse to start a band. The two names I got were:

JAKE STARDUST AND THE MESSIEST FRUITLOOP HEADQUARTERS

FISTFULL OF BREEDERS

I'm partial to the second name, but whichever my band uses we're sure to be huge in Japan.
