- Babs to have supernova named after her.
- Peak eggs.
- The coming trainwreck.
- It is an interesting phenomenon: the pinpoint ant-burning magnifying-glass beam re: Obama time Romney times Obama time Romney infinity, each makes the other and the other the other more ant-burningly worthy shittier. They're the Olson twins playing one character on a shitty TV show.

- Witness for the prosecution.
- JOBS Law as fraud.
- Blooger is skeevier than normal. I mean major skeevy. It's also telling me that there's a new dashboard coming. Don't know if it's related to the skeeviness or will only add to the skeeviness.

- Woke up with this in my head for obvious reasons plus I've heard Van Der Graf Generator songs in the past few days:
Twenty-three percent when placed under
intense pressure did in fact kick
the door in. Soldiers creep on the other side
of the turn. Every little thing
is destined for ease. Music, be still.
Keep the mannequin secrets
to yourself. Remember a ladder
can take you both up and down.
The weather grows less stable
than us. This line here is where
the season starts. Spring seems
fluorescently golden. Too much
milk in the fridge. When left alone
long enough, the prisoners
began to interrogate themselves.
Re, "The Riches of White Trash": Speaking from my own experience (i.e. my own "roots") I can say that any culture that wears its own aliteracy like a badge of honor doesn't have much to stand on in terms of griping about being mis- or underrepresented -- literarily, or otherwise.ReplyDelete
Yup. And the idea that poor white rural America has been underrepresented in American fiction, from Faulkner (and before) up through the rural chic/Raymond Carver (and his legions of bad imitators) vogue of the 80s through today, is silly.ReplyDelete
And yet, for some people, Flannery O'Connor remains so deeply controversial to this day. Some blame it on contemporary notions of "political correctness," but ultimately the problem lies (once again, speaking from own background) with the vein of social realism and observation that undergirds the more "fantastic" aspects of her work.ReplyDelete
