ASCII Porn Attribution

weather: rainy
outside: 8°C
mood: okay
Alright, since this "ASCII Porn" thing is going around (slightly mangled from all the forwarding): it's an ASCII rendition done around 1994 by Mike Jittlov of alt.ascii-art fame. And the woman is the model Ms. Meriday Beth Komor. It's not a GIFscii, it was not converted from a binary file. It was pieced together by hand.

Listen, my children, and you shall hear...
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five Ninety-Four;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

          — H.W. Longfellow

Oh, and I completely forgot: I printed out the Meriday Beth for </a></b></a> on several pieces of paper and taped them together into a big poster. What's being passed around now is cut off, but I had everything from the top of her hair to the tip of her toes. He had it taped it up on his closet door for years.

He either got in trouble from his parents for having pr0n or someone made a comment about it suggesting that I might be offended. He was only too amused to say that _I_ had printed it and given it to him. =D =D

BTW, if anyone knows of the internet whereabouts of my hero, Rowan Crawford, I'd love to hear from you. =)
