Adomania. Read until 10:30 last night after dinner with Earthgirl and Planet and the boyfriend (Denis Johnson's Tree of Smoke, a third through the novel's 700+ pages, and meh, it's good enough to finish, not got enough to make me want to - his Train Dreams was one of the best things I read in 2012, is what prompted this soon-to-be abandoned if not already abandoned project), sound asleep at midnight. What we learned in 2012. The Fecal Cliff. A matter of shared sacrifice. Confusing God and government. Motherfucking Obama. Tribalism and the end of the year blahs. Prep now for mutant future. Understanding collateral damage. Predictions for 2013. 2013: Year of Feminist Revival? Today's bleggalgazing: I still like the alternating links in block form, the merging of the monologue, though the appeal of bulletpoints is reappearing. Under new management. Synchronicity (don't worry, it's not what, or rather, who, you think). Adaptation. Loafing. Silliman's always generous lit-links. Books read 2012. Henri Cole ice-rocketed himself this morning, saw I posted a poem of his yesterday, clicked through, spent zero seconds, dismissed. Baudrilllard, for those of you who do. The Borges in Baudrillard's first paragraph : …In that Empire, the Art of Cartography attained such Perfection that the map of a single Province occupied the entirety of a City, and the map of the Empire, the entirety of a Province. In time, those Unconscionable Maps no longer satisfied, and the Cartographers Guilds struck a Map of the Empire whose size was that of the Empire, and which coincided point for point with it. The following Generations, who were not so fond of the Study of Cartography as their Forebears had been, saw that that vast Map was Useless, and not without some Pitilessness was it, that they delivered it up to the Inclemencies of Sun and Winters. In the Deserts of the West, still today, there are Tattered Ruins of that Map, inhabited by Animals and Beggars; in all the Land there is no other Relic of the Disciplines of Geography. By the way, if that first link to Johnson doesn't open to full article, I had to log-on to a university library's off-campus access to get it - if I like and trust you and you say please, I can make a wide range of goodness available to you.
