161 meme!

I’ve been 161’d! Moultrie Creek hit me with the meme– what current book am I reading? Turn to page 161, and find the sixth sentence and type that down. Pass it on. Okay. But oh, I’m having a hard time of it. But I’ll give it a go.

The item I was reading just when I saw this meme is something that I got in the mail today. It’s a tech paper put out by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Oscar people), called “The Digital Dilemma.” (I mentioned it here.) and the page numbers go only up to 74 (just like the volume that goes up to 11). So, um, what’s on page 61? A diagram. errr, okay, how about page 16? The sixth sentence—in the midst of a discussion about a senior film studio executive discussing his film archiving strategy—reads:

His company’s film IP typically goes bad every 6 to 7 years due to repeated use.

oookay. (hav no idea what IP refers to here. Intellectual Property? Don’t know.)

Okay, how about a book book, then? All right, I went to my local bookstore and saw & heard David Isay, founder of Storycorps, on Monday night. (and you’ll be able to hear him too. I recorded it all, and will be podcasting it). The book- Listening is an Act of Love. Okay, page 161 (flip, flip ,flip.) It’s a chapter plate: History and Struggle. No sixth sentence. So, this time, I’ll flip the 6 upside down, and check out page 191.

“We were going to stand up and be men.”

That’s from the story of Tayler Rogers and his wife, Bessie Rogers, remembering a speech by Martin Luther King—the day before he was shot. (You can listen to it here, actually, but it begins after the sixth sentence.)

Okay, it’s tagging time!
