R.I.P. "TAR ART RAT"
hello USED UNIVERSE*...
I have been using TAR ART RAT for a very long time, and now that I feel different, older, I will be working under that name.
not exactly my take onthe meaning of the phrase, but here is a guy who found it the same way I did (*heard in an (NPR?) interview some years ago?):
"George Lucas said that Star Wars was set in a 'used-universe' - full of technology that was endlessly patched, fixed and recycled; but nobody knew how it actually worked or could invent or innovate on it. We're moving to a used-universe." -blackbeltjones blog
