Found poems in mashed up book titles

(by way of Twitter)






The phantom tollbooth,

coming of age





20 love poems


a song of Despair,

George’s marvellous medicine.









with Kurt Vonnegut,












what remains,












The Lobster,

The Cricket in Times Square,

Fear and loathing in Las Vegas,


The unbearable lightness


being bridge

embedded marketing,



into a Mass Media Text


Reality – Fictional


into MASS MEDIA works

Maintain a feeling of REALISM


be a Subject



Product placement is the deliberate incorporation of references to a brand or product in exchange for compensation. Product placements may range from unobtrusive appearances within an environment, to prominent integration and acknowledgement of the product within the work. >>>>>>>> Eventually the products are hidden in plain sight of our everyday reality, on our shelves, or as a favourite T-shirt or cap shaping our personal context, turning individuals into a Mass Medium conveying a message.

The Asemic Tarot – new Blog

Asemic Tarot cards are distinctive in non-being. There is no accurate meaning/interpretation for any card, nor is there any formal layout. The ranking is capricious, as is the size and shape; they do not fit any standard. The names are a blend of real and alternative languages using a mix of cultures and symbols.

I have created a new blog, Asemic Tarot. As the title suggests, it will feature just Asemic Tarot compositions and related work. I considered deleting all Tarot posts on this blog, but considering likes & comments, it was simpler to create a home page on the new blog that had links to all the Tarot posts. All future Asemic Tarot compositions will be on the new blog – Asemic Tarot 20 has been posted.


To be honest, I almost gave up in frustration -WordPress does not make it easy to initiate & navigate a new blog. I may have missed some (hidden) icon/step – whatever it was, it took me a very long time to get things going. I will, no doubt, have to rejig layout & links in the near future.



As a reminder, and for those unfamiliar with my other blogs, here are their links:

Dark Pines Media – my 1st blog, started when I was teaching. It was concerned with Media Literacy, the teaching of the subject, and the societal impact of Mass Media. I still sporadically post on this blog. *** When I first set this up, there was a great foof-rah about teachers having blogs & students accessing blogs at school. Shortly after my wife & I retired, the school had a Twitter account – staff members had been using Facebook to organize Alumni Events for some time.


Dark Pines Photo – photography and creative expression blog, that has come to concentrate on photography & monochrome photography. My earliest experiments in collage scanography & digital art can be found here, along with experiments in poetry & fantasy/weird fiction.




Kanski Zoo – a blog set up by wife, that we share. It features photos of our pets & travels around the Elliot Lake area.


Asemic Tarot – unlike the other blogs, this one opens on the home page, which has background for newcomers. Most of the links are to pages on Implied Spaces.

My wife organized & runs a community theatre group for Special Needs community members. Due to Covid, it is presently on pause – you can view photos, and learn more about them at their blog – Elliot Lake Roundabout Exceptional Puppeteers.

Hope you find this of interest. Let me know if there are any glitches on the new blog, or the others for that matter. Many Thanks. JPK
