The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 7.23.21, incl.

FPCKK decoded by Kepi

So, the Dr Frank Weakly Reader is back, after three weeks “off.” That means there’s a lot of stuff to index, though the same factors that hindered the timely aggregation and indexing probably also hindered the flow of “content” a bit. At any rate, here we are. This is my way of keep track of my internet so it can be found in the future. I do it mainly for my own use, just in case, but as always, feel free to read along. I’ll try to make it as pretty as possible.


The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 6.25.2021, incl.

Hello, and welcome once again to the Dr Frank Weakly Reader, that thing I do where I produce an annotated, augmented, illustrated collation of the past week’s “content” so it can be found later on if need be. This one covers the past two weeks as I skipped it last week, as I am often wont to do, if wont means what I think it does. So here be news, links, updates, commentary, and pictures. That sort of thing. As always, feel free but not obligated to read along if you like.

The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 6.11.21, incl.

Hello, friends and enemies, and welcome to yet another Dr Frank Weakly Reader, once again a “double issue” because of having skipped last week. Lots to cover here, accordingly, including some God-help-me further comments on Naomi Wolf, the open society, and its enemies (see below, IN THE NEWS.) So let’s just jump into the weaks that were.

But first…

THE DR FRANK WEAKLY READER FOR 5.28.21, INCL.

Welcome friends, to another Dr Frank Weakly Reader — covering two weeks’ worth of stuff on account of having skipped it last week. This is how I keep track of the Dr Frank internet so I can consult it later if need be, as today’s social media information system lacks an index and is not reliably searchable. As usual, it is augmented, annotated, and illustrated. Feel free to read along if you like. And here’s wishing you the best of all possible Memorial Day weekends.

But first…

The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 5.14.2021

… or vice versa, or neither. Or both. Even I have no idea what I’m getting at, but I do know that I’m typing up a little introduction to another one of these Weakly Reader things, wherein I collate items from the past week on the Dr Frank web and arrange them attractively on a page so they can be reviewed and searched for in the future if necessary.

The main thing going on this past week was the commencement of the “dibs” process for Shards vol. iii (see the FRONT BURNER directly below for the latest on that.) …


The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 5.07.2021, incl.

Welcome friends, to another Dr Frank Weakly Reader, and another double-week edition this time because I skipped last week (that’s what I mean by “incl.” in the subtitle.) As it is at least theoretically possible that someone may look at this who hasn’t looked at any previous Weakly Reader, I repeat the spiel: this is mainly a means index my own “content” in this post-index internet, in case I ever want to find anything in the future. I usually big it up with illustrations, annotations, and the like, and sometimes I’ll include extra items and commentary (as here with the…

Like it says, this is the thirty-first collation of Song for Odin posts, the latest installment of a sort of project stretching back three years and covering 129 different songs (in 173 entries.) The basic idea is, each week, on Wednesday, I upload a video “resource” of a song of mine or done by me or my band and type up some commentary. I’ve been doing it most every week. Like most things in life, I do it without any good articulable reason. And every month or so, I compile them, lightly edited and illustrated, into a document like this…


The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 4.23.21, incl.

Welcome, minions, if such there be, to yet another Dr Frank Weakly Reader, covering two weeks once again instead of the usual one because it was skipped last week. Mistakes were made. Sometimes indexing one’s own internet content for an audience of not much more than one is too much for the sensitive soul to face.

But then, one bursts forth and comes surging back. Such has been the nature of weakly readers for æons, I imagine. The narcissistic personality disorder must go on.

So here we are, burst, surged, drained, and somewhat slightly smudged… so let’s away to the…


The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 4.09.2021, incl.

Hello friends, and welcome to another Dr Frank Weakly Reader, that thing I do where I attempt to index my own internet for future findability since, as we all know, though few care: it ain’t gonna index itself.

I slacked off and skipped last week so this is two weeks’ worth… read along if you like.

And now, without further ado (as I’ve got very little ado to my name at the moment) on we hurtle into the weak that was…

The Dr Frank Weakly Reader for 3.26.21

Hello friends, and welcome. What we’ve got here is another Dr Frank Weakly Reader, wherein I have attempted to index my own internet for the week. As usual it is annotated, augmented, illustrated, and jazzed up. I do it mainly for myself so I’ll have somewhere to search if I ever want to find anything, but feel free to read along if you like. There’s no charge.

The main thing we’ve got coming up is the Lookout Zoomout III, which is happening this Sunday, March 28, noon Pacific. Here’s the link for tickets. …
