Metaphysical Meme and Precog Polyart

Welcome to my heart's desire. I started this journey in 2010. I've come to understand that no United States-based fan organization is currently operating--or if there is, it's well under the radar. Well, that's just wrong. So it is that I'm taking on the challenge of calling all fans and enthusiasts in the States to join me (yet again) in creating a new online group where we can discuss and share and show that yes, there is interest in the United States! If you would be interested in this new project, please contact me at and let's see what we can create!

How Do I Say It In "American"?

Kind of a funny story. Indulge me.

My poor father has been searching for a replacement vehicle (new car sounds so materialistic). Since 1985 he has driven nothing but Chrysler minivans, and has sworn by them as the most efficient cars around. Unfortunately, the minivan is going by way of the dodo. My dad would just get another of what he has know if he could, but it's not an option.

So we've both been researching minivan-like vehicles for months. Finally, he's starting to like the Chevrolet Equinox (that's the tie in). But after more than thirty years of using the French version in his speech because of Jarre's Equinoxe I'm having to train him in saying the word in a way our local car dealing folks will understand.

But there's no way around it. "Equinox" just looks strange to us. "We can fix it," I told him. "We'll get a stick on metallic 'e' to the name and have the only Equinoxe in the neighborhood."
