New rules (Yes, Google - I know, I've already done this for my blog, and now you will penalize me for duplicate content as the rules are exactly the same. Not the poem of course!)

not funny though

it often just looked unfocused
while others procrastinate

silently cursing yourself
silently introspecting

Much energy is wasted in talking
It can be measured
to answer the following questions

Need an extra hand?
meaning, pronunciation and more

what is
the class of ostensive definitions
words will not be understood

Word of the Day
A rapid scramble down the shattered ridge
All too soon we were on the top

And with you went my dream
I know where I was going

a 1945 romance film
A complete list
to obtain

to obtain
to obtain
to obtain
to obtain
to obtain
Cache
clear it to fix issues

There are a number of problems
There is or There are
what to do when it's not so clear cut

Distinctly and sharply defined
in contour
A line that represents
Tough and Tricky questions

So you think you're pretty clever?
move forward or backward to get to the perfect spot

the best way
the best
world of dreams

watch
Series
extremely powerful queries
they're a lot more trouble

work you have to do for something
questioning why we don't hold different cards

which basically translates to
which basically means
we're going to take
it anymore

I had misspelled Bizarr in the Tags list. Now I corrected it - and it means a Tag will die! I think this is the right kind of comment for this kind of 'article'!

Instead of a 'Bio' ...

... we show you an organic - 'bio' - space probe.

Organic 'Bio' Space Probe

Elkement is an amalgam of Elke and the Subversive Element.

Physicist and consulting engineer by trade and by day, self-proclaimed dilettante science blogger and avant-garde poet by night.

Remembering a so-called creativity training, autumn 2000. Correcting fake German tag Bizarr to Bizarre and breaking the fabric of spacetime in 2018.

'A pink spaceship lands on the secluded glade.'

(elkement. Last changed: 2018-03-03. Created: 2014-06-21. Tags: Poetry, Poem, Bizarre, Art, Spaceship. German Version.)

This is off-base, I know. But there is no point in translating some of my German texts. Nevertheless, I cannot bring myself to accept the glaring gaps in the English version of this site. So this is German stuff, quoted on the English page.

The goal of the exercise was to associate freely or whatever. Participants should write a short story, each sentence had to start with a letter in your full name.

This is what Google Translate makes of the German version:

A pink spaceship lands on the secluded glade.

Slowly, the hatch opens.

No human being on this planet registered the historical event.

An event that will carry out a change in the timeline to the fact that the history of mankind is to be rewritten.

It makes sense is actually not to report it, since the landing of the spaceship will not take place in the other timeline.

Dancing lights appear to move on the outer shell of the spaceship, when the setting is reflected in it.

All members of the team have now left the spaceship and begin to bring the time converter in position.

Still continues the old timeline of the earth for 5 minutes ...

All of a sudden the existing space-time continuum is destabilized with the inconspicuous Click the Einschaltknopfes the time converter.

Slowly, the prehistoric life on earth newly created starts to rain.

Newsletter Resurrection

(elkement. Last changed: 2018-03-03. Created: 2013-02-09. Tags: Newsletter, Web, Internet, Bizarre, Nostalgia. German Version.)

These are the preliminary results of the Website Resurrection Project. In spring 2012 rotten web pages have been de-linked. Those have been polished in a clandestine fashion in our steam punk web page manufacture and are gradually re-linked since autumn 2012.

The Subversive Newsletters published in German in 2004-2005 have been linked again!

The Elkement is going to analyze those and comment in English. Note that this will not add any new content. Not even the original newsletters had conveyed anything resembling 'content'.

The following newsletters have been analyzed:

In the meantime have a cup of coffee and some alien cupcakes:
