``What was Hochmann like?''

The character Kathryn, asking Hope (think Jackson Pollock's widow Lee Krasner), from John Updike's ``Seek My Face.''

Blog? What's a blog? Is that like a Pollock paint splatter?

Ooops, I think I screwed this up, John. I jumped right in but, alas, I don't get it. Will somebody pick up the ball and continue, please?
