The most lasting thing from my linguistics education is SpecGram..
SpecGram is about whatever I say it’s about, until someone persuades me otherwise..”
Are you willing to share the work? Then I’d have to share the profits..”
It’s odd, subtle, and pretentious. I like it!..”
I can’t believe we’ve been at this for five years..”
I’ve always been stubborn about doing these things on my own..”
I write long pieces because I don’t have time to write short ones..”
Satire and parody are protected speech..”
I feel conflicted..”
I’m the only one who can edit the files, so I know I don’t have to take any suggestions!..”
Anyone have any great ideas? If not, I’ll proceed on my own (and hog all the glory!)..”
I feel like I’m being educated against my will..”
SpecGram is run by a bunch of fuddy-duddies..”
I don’t actually want you to do it, because if you do it, I might have to send you a free magnet..”
Corrections, discussion, and name-calling welcome..”
Give it to me honestly, please. Then I’ll do whatever I want..”
