What a Mess …

What a Mess … Stoned’s Office Project

I thought Godzilla was a mess, the monster had no character and the humans didn’t either” (George Romero)

Well Godzilla was a classic compared to the mess in my office. In this post I decided to give you a glimpse of a good deal of my world … my office. Supplemented by some photo illustrations. I just received, through the graces of Carisse Berryhill of the Center of Restoration Studies, a complete set of the Millennial Harbinger (42 volumes)… what to do with them?

Here is a view to the left from my chair. Note the construction in the corner … oh don’t miss Sponge Bob the guardian of books …

Here is a view to the right across the top of my desk. An attempt to capture the mess.

A look at the mess to the rear of my desk. Man I need to clean this mess …

But I think I’d rather go for a ride …

    The poster’s all wrong– Campbell would have been smart enough to protect his assets with a helmet.

    Enjoy the ride.

    Really though, how can you call that a mess? It’s a casually arranged collection of books. would you call a pile of diamonds a “mess”? No way. Books couldn’t possibly be considered a mess.

    That’s beautiful, BobbyB A messy mind is a sure sign of creativity. That’s what I try and tell myswlf anyway!

    It really doesn’t look that bad. You are probably like my son Isaac who says, “It may look like a mess, but I know exactly where everything is.” If I am really honest, he gets some of it from me. Have a great rest of the week.

    I have a book or two. Some more at home but they are in the garage at a house I don’t live in any more.

    I’m jealous, very cool that you got a complete set of the Millennial Harbinger (42 volumes). Do you have a copy of Campbell’s Living Oracles? I’m always on the lookout! I know you can get it on cd, but I want an original!

  9. Stoned-Campbell Disciple Says:

    Cheryl I have two copies of the Living Oracles … might be willing to part with one …

    Bobby–just finished listening to your Pepperdine stuff. Thanks for some great presentations, especially flying solo (did you have a PPT graphic where JMH bobbed his head in agreement?).

    If you had a handout I’d love to get a copy if you wouldn’t mind sending it.

    As to this post, I never saw the camel/campbell coming!
