Random quote 1 (RQ1)

“Once you consume a letter, it’s gone; keep going until you get to the next uneaten one.”

–Mike Selinker. “The Pac-Man Puzzle.” Wired 19.10 (October 2011): 96.

Random quote project

New project: once per day, I’m going to post a random quote from something I’m reading that day. I’m not going to choose the quote carefully; it’s going to be a quick, unthoughtful snippet, and the text from which it comes will be equally random, because my reading habits are random. The quote might come from a printed source, or something online, or something (a sign, a poster) that I read while passing by. I’m curious to see what happens to the meaning when the quotes are stripped of context and if there will be unexpected connections between the quotes.
