RESIDENCY ANNOUNCEMENT 


31/11/2017 11: This December, Sink's resident is Janis Lejins.

31/11/2017 11:01: Also we have it on some authority that Jesus was born in December

31/11/2017 11:02: Buddha got enlightenment then too (8th), plus it's Hanukkah, Human Rights Day and Kwanzaa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_multinational_festivals_and_holidays#December)

31/11/2017: 11:03: ha, so happy holidays! I guess.

31/11/2017 11:07: Maybe - it remains to be seen - Is the timing a coincidence? (Janis + Jesus)

31/11/2017 11:10: Who knows.

31/11/2017 11:20: ... Apparently Jesus' dad was omnipotent.

31/11/2017 11:30: , Well I guess he knows then.

31/11/2017 11:35: ... - I heard he is dead.

31/11/2017 11:36: What? , Who killed him?

31/11/2017 11:36: - us.

31/11/2017 11:37: Oh.

31/11/2017 11:40: ... Anyhow. Janis is circumnavigating the world this festive season. He's going from Shanghai to London to Sydney to Hawaii to London to do his research.

31/11/2017 11:41: Really? What is his research?

31/11/2017 11:44: Not sure. I think he's just going home for Christmas and trying to dress it up. He just sent us this:
opticon. plural -s. : an external enlargement of the optic lobe of the insect brain that is the innermost of the ganglionic masses connected with the compound eye.

31/11/2017 11:50: - Maybe he is trying to see everything then.

31/11/2017 11:50: Potentially

31/11/2017 11:52: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_complex ?

31/11/2017 11:54: .. Maybe?

31/11/2017 11:57: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_complex

31/11/2017 11:58: That could be anyone

31/11/2017 11:58: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_personality_disorder

31/11/2017 11:59: I mean that's more Trump or Hirst but... but potentially - his wifi password is janisisgod

01/12/2017 12:00: - Plus he wrote this script.
