not exactly textless though I believe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picture_Post

Dylan from The Magic Roundabout http://www.rsc.co.uk/zebidee/history.htm
It's French, so don't expect it to make any sense. [8th of 7, Jul 10 2008]

       What's "dilanesque"? Do you mean "Dylanesque"?   

       And by "playing", do you mean "plain"?   

       What does Dylan (which one?) have to do with picture newspapers?   

       Picture-based worldless communication has a long historical tradition in e.g. church windows and tapestries. Newspapers, I don't think so.   

       There is a picture-only newspaper in Ray Bradbury's science-fiction novel "Fahrenheit 451".

       I can imagine those celebrity-news magazines converging on some kind of graphic novel format. That could work because it's a kind of 'news' which requires absolutely no context. For real news, no.   

       I can't bring myself to fishbone this, because it's not stupid in itself, just stultifying in its effects, which is different.

       Dylan Thomas?   

       Matt Dylan?   

       Honda Dylan?   

       Dill n' garlic pickles?

       Dylan the rabbit ?

       [Marked-for-deletion] Ambiguous Dylan.   

       No idea - until such time as the poster decides to explain what this is.
zen_tom, Jul 14 2008

       I'm thinking the reverse of 'Under Milk Wood', which is described as a "play for voices", so "dilanesque" presumably means the use of a medium for = Oh God, i have no idea. Anagram?

       Can we add "Ambiguous Dylan" to the help file? The HB's hard enough for newbies to get to grips with as it is, we really ought to keep that updated.

       Good Lord!!! The man just invented Television!!!! (Just turn the volume off.)   

       I think it's read di Lanes que...

       Just to clarify - wrapping something up in misspelled and obfuscationary allusion does not an idea make.   

       Wasn't it Bob Dylan who did that video with the lyrics on big sheets of cardboard?   

       Aha, a search reveals "Subterranean Homesick Blues" - and some youtube [linked]   

       It still doesn't really make any sense though.

       Egyptian Hieroglyphics?
nineteenthly, Jul 14 2008

       I also notice that [marked-for-deletion] bollocks, hasn't been added to the help file. Most distressing.

       Light and sunny today, and the trees and leaves will trail with daisies and barley down the rivers of the windfall light.

       //Just to clarify - wrapping something up in misspelled and obfuscationary allusion does not an idea make. //   

       challenge the *obfuscationary* thing. Per chance, would you mean *obfuscatory*? my goodness. you must be soooo embarassed.
r_kreher, Jul 14 2008

       In "Gun, With Occasional Music", the news on the radio only played music.
normzone, Jul 14 2008

       Was that by any chance "The day the music died" ?   

       // wrapping something up in misspelled and obfuscationary allusion does not an idea make //   

       [zen_tom], avoid any career move into Sales or Marketing.   

       Or Journalism.   

       Or Law.   

       Or Politics.

       Ha - career (and spelling) advice taken - as it happens, I'm going to a 2-day sales conference tomorrow - I'm hoping to win the "Most Cynical Attendee" award between being talked at too much by thousands of gleaming-toothed salesmen.
