In a way this is a kind of follow-up to ↵moore’s magic. Somewhen [yes, that’s a word—still] during 2007 and 2008 ↑Nigel Palmer of Brighton has tattooed portions of text from William Gibson’s ‘Neuromancer’ (1984) on ↑the_dan’s arms. The association with Peter Greenaway’s ‘The pillow book’ (1996) is obvious.
GREENAWAY, PETER. 1996. The pillow book [motion picture]. Rotterdam: Kasander & Wigman Productions.
GIBSON, WILLIAM FORD. 1984. Neuromancer. New York: Penguin.

*haha* This reminds me of Prof. Laubschers “obzwar”. And the funny thing is: Since then I use it, too, although (!) its said to be old fashioned. I don’t care…
lol, yes, and I am always a bit vexed when people from the eastern part of Germany say ‘frühs’ for early in the day, or when people from Austria say ‘weiters’ for furthermore—but I stubbornly do not use those words myself! ;-) btw, ‘somewhen’ is tagged as old-fashioned, too, in some dictionaries (the old-fashioned ones).
so in the old-fashioned dictionaries the word is tagged as old-fashioned :) Pretty funny
obzwar is gross.^^
