Ozzi, our neighbor to the right's kitten, has adopted us, we open any door and in she sprints. Fleabus unhappy, responding to us with furious attacks of love meows and cuddles, Rosie gives no fuck, Stanley - I need to write about Stanley, first to myself, don't worry - Stanley is curious, purring and singing and trilling - I need to make a video of Stanley's purr and song and trill, and Olive is
Momcat o fuck but chill, Napoleon o fuck but chill, Frankie - the most inside baseball joke this shitty bleg can do - Frankie, who we think drove away his and Nap's sister Greycat - I don't think I ever wrote about Greycat, I know I've mentioned Frankie for the inside baseball joke but I have never written about Frankie in any tablet ever - Frankie is an asshole, I think if his brother Nap dies before their mother (an increasingly apparent possibility) Frankie will drive off Momcat, he's doing recon on Ozzi from the azalea bushes, he might be old man smart enough to know his most vicious attack Ozzi will see as playing and kick Frankie's ass thinking it play
Artificial friends, cats. Not done with Ishiguro's Klara and the Sun and I will need reread it again and soon but the obviously uncanny is that of people I love in my life I've seen three in the past year in person and here I am typing at you who live miles from me and have no more desire to meet me in real life than I do you, and I true unconsciously true self-consciously synch with favorite makers and Ishiguro always tapped that Mwah on the my widget until *Buried Giant* and I thought my Ishiguro widget dead, and if *Klara* is mwah > Mwah at least I know that I'm not dead
LotS! of deleted and (omni)present bleggalgaze (fills tablets that have no mention of Stanley or Frankie), reminded I dig Arab Strap
<<< "During his campaign against Hillary Clinton and in his ongoing use of Hillary Clinton as a rhetorical punching bag, Donald Trump and his minions have often cited many of the things you will read below. This does not mean they aren’t true. They certainly are. True stories that can be verified, after all, are ideal weapons for an opponent. It is important for readers to take this distinction into account. The feud between Clinton and Trump is not a cosmic battle between good and evil, but a falling out among thieves."
<<< "Poverty and healthcare assume the appearance of individual responsibility, the state assumes the appearance of an obstruction to open market circulation flows, the commodity assumes the appearance of base survival, a satiated proletariat assumes the appearance of a good credit score, a redistribution of wealth assumes the appearance of socialism, a megalomaniac assumes the appearance of fascism, culture assumes the appearance of a mechanism of empowerment, the struggle against racism assumes the appearance of democratic leaders taking the knee in kente cloth, a healthy economy assumes the appearance of a healthy population, ad nauseum."
Holyfuck, was I really today years old when I got the Frankie joke? Jeebus. I had no idea I've been Karen's mother for that long.ReplyDelete
We think the family's still there but aren't sure. I know Andyray Ardyhay still RollingDelete
speaking of the lexus, as armantrout does - my intended next car if any has a very good score from consumer reports - it is a compact suv from m*zd* - i want to get it in redReplyDelete
the mountain road i may take it on is 20 km from the highest peak in my ancestral province - that peak is 535 m - of all the c*n*d**n provinces and territories only the nearest and smallest neighbouring province has a lower peak than that
spouse and self may buy that car in the ancestral province
if my inherited claim to citizenship to the land of half of my recent ancestors is approved
and if - before we move if we move - a car purchase is not triggered here by a decline in current car fitness, or spouse being required to commute to an office in the district
if said car is bought it might be our last car and even more probably it might be our last fossil fuel car - the last one is a kind of object permanence, one could say - the opposite of a new vogue
speaking of vogueness, and also of cuteness, i came across a bbc news pidgin report about
K-pop: How Korean culture [Kpop/Kdrama] don dey influence Nigerians
this article came up as i searched for the source for your paragraph quoted from verso books blog about nothing is any longer the opposite of anything - as verso has apparently deleted it you seem to have the only instantation of these comments on the internet
it brings to mind something i saw yesterday - the throne speech in my ancestral province, given by the leftenant governor [a retired judge raised to the role of representative of the monarch] on the occasion of the provincial legislature's assembly with a new premier, began with an acknowledgment that the province is the ancestral home of the indigenous inhabitants, who were there before not only my own ancestors, but also before the arrival of the european settlers whom my own ancestors replaced after the forcible deportation of those earliest europeans - in their language le Grand Dérangement
the past is never dead - it's not even past - faulkner
verso has restored the page i could not find yesterday - from there i went to our friends at wikipedia's explanation of a movement guy debord [1931-94] contributed to, the situationist internationalDelete
The situationists believed that the shift from individual expression through directly lived experiences, or the first-hand fulfillment of authentic desires, to individual expression by proxy through the exchange or consumption of commodities, or passive second-hand alienation, inflicted significant and far-reaching damage to the quality of human life for both individuals and society. Another important concept of situationist theory was the primary means of counteracting the spectacle; the construction of situations, moments of life deliberately constructed for the purpose of reawakening and pursuing authentic desires, experiencing the feeling of life and adventure, and the liberation of everyday life.
this reminds me of something gurdjieff said, when asked what the difference was between ordinary waking consciousness and the greater awareness that was the aim of his teachings and methods -
everything more vivid
