Being an inquiry into the travails of metadata... Counting the ways to Franco was an excursion into the realm of metadata, matters of syntax, and a contemplation of the hive mind of the web... Who knew there were so many ways to spell Franco & Le Tout Puissant OK Jazz. These glitches appeal to me, truth be told. People label things to remember them and the patterns they use are worthy artifacts even in their imperfect glory.

Get On The Bus (aka Glue Layer People)
