Leitmotiv: "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards."—L. Carroll

The Orphanage directly informs Dallas Section, Deep Ellum cell that a statistical

anomaly exceeding two SDs has been detected in an early recipient of the

Рязань hors d'oeuvres--an otherwise inexplicable furor scribendi. The

"ineluctable modality of the visible" statistically appears to alter the half-life

effect(s) on a given target. The Midget Tag Team has urged harvesting the

aforesaid, as only dissection of both the nucleus amygdalae and the nucleus

accumbens can directly resolve the metabolic issues via the Asylum Choir's

[ultramicrotome] LVEM. True but tactically inconvenient—only inferential

analyses are to be conducted at any [β] location, regardless of the number of in

situ targets. [#/*] Woodward, Bisbee & Bennett can be applied mutatis

mutandis, as The Little Orphan Children have adapted the scanning software

which should provide sufficient data from those targets whose verbal output is

adequately recorded. Stoichiometric projections by Mistah Kurtz indicate that the

[2005] target's logorrheic abberancy may arise from irregular metabolization of

CYP2C19—which directly impacts the current efforts of both Jenny Geddes and

Peggy Dow. The archetypal presentations which presently give great promise

when wed with the congruent elixirs [p<0.01] vis-à-vis Judges 7:22, may morph

if the targets exhibit extended temporal duration. Richard Baxter will present an

alternative to demethylation at the forthcoming sub-plenary. AΔEΛΦ)I,

The large black and white photograph is a behind-the-scenes photo from the 1959 film "The Crimson Kimono". The photo was taken in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo neighborhood, looking northeast up Weller Street from the corner of Second Street and San Pedro. The large building in the distance is Los Angeles City Hall, completed in 1928. The concrete in the building was made with sand from each of California's 58 counties and water from its 21 historic missions. City Hall's tower was inspired by the shape of the Mausoleum of Mausolus (also known as the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus), one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Wikipedia

This photo was featured on the cover and on the title page of the 2005 book "L.A. Noir: The City as Character" Amazon Link

"The Crimson Kimono" follows two detectives, one caucasian and one Japanese, as they hunt for the killer of a stripper named Sugar Torch in the Japanese neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The detectives' search is complicated when they both fall in love with a key witness. A more detailed summary

The man in the white shirt with sunglasses is director Samuel Fuller. The man in the plaid shirt may be Sam Leavitt, the film's cinematographer. The camera operator is unknown. The arm indicated by the white arrow belongs to an unidentified man. Based on the framing of the shot, they may have been filming the scene below:

"It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards."—L. Carroll

This quote is drawn from Through The Looking Glass by Louis Carroll.

"The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday—but never jam to-day."

"It MUST come sometimes to 'jam to-day,'" Alice objected.

"No, it can't," said the Queen. "It's jam every OTHER day: to-day isn't any OTHER day, you know."

"I don't understand you," said Alice. "It's dreadfully confusing!"

"That's the effect of living backwards," the Queen said kindly: "it always makes one a little giddy at first—"

"Living backwards!" Alice repeated in great astonishment. "I never heard of such a thing!"

"—but there's one great advantage in it, that one's memory works both ways."

"I'm sure MINE only works one way," Alice remarked. "I can't remember things before they happen."

"It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards," the Queen remarked.

This quote was a favorite of Carl Jung when explaining the concept of synchronicity, which holds that events are "meaningful coincidences" if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related. Wikipedia
