Across the years, a wild sampling of Trent Ling’s historical and infamous Charts will grace this website and horrify the world. Perhaps the most appropriate flagship Chart was conceived when Trent was but nine years old, upon the dawning of fourth grade, with notorious taskmaster, Mr. Livingstone.
“Looking back, I cannot believe that I got through Livingstone’s class cleanly while keeping moment-by-moment books on nook-and-cranny class activities,” Trent exuded 38 years later. “When we finally open these archaic vaults, I may be arrested for sheer, utter weirdness. I like how I put my name at the bottom of the cover page so as not to have my charts confused with anyone else’s?”
Below lies but the front cover of Trent’s fourth-grade Charts publication. Over time, this page will serve as a beacon to which other Chart posts will gravitate. Here, after years of honing his craft, Trent implemented formalized procedures by which history, happenstance, and hysteria could be jammed into one strange boy’s account of his extraordinary days.
For today, enjoy the front cover of the early beginnings. And for various tomorrows, the unnerving unveiling shall commence.
