Came up with this page name while wandering around a near deserted car-park between 10 and midnight.
What does it mean? How do I combine SpreadSheets and Circuses?
Is it like a FleaCircus? Little clown-like and trapeze-artist-like macros do miniature tricks in A4 and CC39?
Is the circus a system of archetypes? Spread through a constrained, circular SpaceTime? And is a spreadsheet an analagous system? Financial archetypes doomed to twice nightly shows in an enclosed world?
From my blog around 6 years ago :
> Anyway, without that to look forward to, I just want to announce that, for bizarre Jonesian reasons that I may explain in a minute, I just succeeded in copying the Midi module out of Gbloink! (which is VB, after all) into ... ahem ... Excel. And it runs fine in VBA.
> Which means, musical spreadsheets ... w00t!!
> To quote the immortal words of a Google-luring spam-blog, :
> Or rather, what I meant to say, I've decided that my next musical opus is going to be written in Excel - and provisionally code-named "Spreadsheet Circus".
> Googling the phrase uncovered the above text, which will act as a kind of heuristical guiding star for the work. (Pull it apart and find lots of interesting imagery of casinos, cards, gambling, shootouts, angst, genocides, bantu arrowheads, slot-machines, spreadsheets, circuses etc. What more could you want in a magnum opus?)
