An Odyssey in One Bit

So… It was suggested I copy and paste all my 2001 pieces into one megapost. This seemed a lot of work, but, in the words of Stan Laurel, aged 9, “I’ll tell you what I *will* do…” Here are links to all the posts in order, so you can have an epic odyssey of your own, reading my verbiage.

MAIN TITLE

THE DAWN OF MAN Day One

THE DAWN OF MAN Days Two & Three

THE MILLION-YEAR JUMP CUT

THE BLUE DANUBE: The Fantasy Department with special guest Quincy Jones

MOONWATCHERS

DR. SMYLSOV, OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE SQUIRT

JUPITER MISSION: Keir Dullea and Gone Tomorrow

THE COMPUTER WORE CARPET SLIPPERS

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND

THE WHITE ROOM

PUTTING THE STARCH BACK INTO STARCHILDAlso there are these three pieces, which, though not part of the sequential voyage through Kubrick’s film, deal with aspects of it or have strong connections to it, and the pieces appeared during my Odyssey in Bits so they belong here as marginalia or something.

DELIBERATELY BURIED by Bruce Bennett

REFLECTIVE VALUE with King Vidor

THIS IS THE UNIVERSE
