Thank you James.

Very funny, light and frothy, but with a point. I particularly liked

I like it James. Not sure about the Downing St rference I mean they are twits yes but they don't create this particular technology (do they?) I think cutting that would universalise this more.

I can see you out rapping this ;

Does shoogly mean unsteady?

Love the exuberance of this, it sounds great out loud...and it's damn right.

The iphone obsession is really everywhere now. Shoogly tables (great image for this),,,as far as the eye can see.

I love this:

In the 80s we were Mac'd by fast food.
In the noughties, we've been Mac'd by Apple.

Hilarious and rather brilliant - like a comedy poetic version of Ray Bradbury's nightmare vision in Fahrenheit 451 which, sadly, is just about wher we are now..........I too would be inclined to cut Downing St.........but, this zips along with terrific satiric fizz....................

Oh I see - another site I never heard of I'm still missing Habitat ;

The zombies are zapped. I may come up with something more appropriate. 'Shoogly' means wobbly, unsteady. It's a Scots word which I used because it seems very expressive. 'Wobbly' would probably do just as well, though.

Thanks for all comments so far.

James.

As a fellow Scot I demand that you retain 'shoogly'!! Nae ither wurd will dae...................... ; - ) Mike

Hi James,

I read this a couple of days ago and was trying to think of something extra to add but I confess I couldn't. It's witty and it bounces along. And if no one has already invented the voodoo app, you should probably copyright the idea!

Create a virtual doll
with the face of your ex
stick pins in it and send


But I must confess that I totally missed the point of the last two lines. I'll have another read but I can't see why. The words are a great counterpoint to app jargon but I don't understand the point. It's probably really obvious. I'm a bit slow at the moment!

It's quite feeble really, Sarah. If you have a wobbly table why not just put your mobile under one leg to steady it?

My reply to Mike (just above your comment)reads: 'It will stay 'shoogly' for ever. But alas! soon such a modest work will be forgotten.'

Thank you for your positive comment.

James.

A shoogly table! I see! Maybe just a couple of extra lines then? Something along the lines of 'There's always the shoogly table app, how to place gizmo under the table leg'. That would be really useful for bears of very little brain like me!

All the best poets are happy to use obscure words and if not, invent them. GMH I think was very good at that and I think there are quite a few words that find their first recorded use in Shakespeare.

A new ending, as Sarah suggested. I've used some pseudo-technical jargon.

James.

SarahT at 22:01 on 02 June 2011  Report this post
I like it! Pseudo-technical jargon included!

James Graham at 14:56 on 03 June 2011  Report this post
Thanks, Sarah. I believe there is such a thing as a stabilizer app, but have no idea what it is and no great yearning to know. 'Sub-platform' is a made-up term which hopefully sounds authentic.

James.

I really enjoyed the lines:

Create a virtual doll
with the face of your ex
stick pins in it and send


and I love the 'new ending' where you would use the device to prop up a wobbly table, laugh out loud! (as opposed to lol)

James Graham at 11:20 on 11 June 2011  Report this post
Thanks, Patricia. I'm quite chuffed with those lines myself. The new ending is, well, not bad. It'll do.

James.
