Drama Queen [24 Aug 2005|02:16am]

Papaver somniferum 'Drama Queen' from poppies.org

This is the 'Drama Queen' variety of Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy. So beautiful, so illegal. Damn I want one! As if I could ever bring myself to grind up such a creature for any mere high! I'll buy my heroine on the street and keep my garden alive, thank you very much.

My newfound obsession:

A female deep-sea humpback anglerfish, Family Melanocetidae of Order Lophiiformes, isn't she lovely?

How do you think males find their mates in absolute darkness? The answer's evolutionary ramification is oh so exquisitely delicious.

It was in the hard copy newspaper delivered to everyone's door in Murfreesboro, too. The front page of the 'local news' section (section B)! My only qualm is she misspelled Antonin Artaud's name.

This was forwarded to me. I don't know how immanent it is but it's still scary.
There is pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills: S 89
and HR 163) which will initiate a military draft to begin in Spring
2005. The administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed now,
while the public's attention is on the elections, so our action on this
is needed immediately. Details and links follow.

$28 million has been added to the 2004 selective service system (sss)
budget to prepare for a military draft that could start as early as June
15, 2005. Selective Service must report to Bush on March 31, 2005 that
the system, which has been dormant for decades, is ready for

Please see website:
http://www.sss.gov/perfplan_fy2004.html to view the sss annual
performance plan - fiscal year 2004.

The pentagon has quietly begun a public campaign to fill all 10,350
draft board positions and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide..

Though this is an unpopular election year topic, military experts and
influential members of congress are suggesting that if Rumsfeld's
prediction of a "long, hard slog" in Iraq and Afghanistan [and a permanent
state of war on terrorism"] proves accurate, the U.S. may have no choice
but to draft.

You're Brian Eno.
You're a little reclusive maybe, a little quieter
than most people...
But man, who needs outside entertainment when your
brain is like KABOOM all the time? You are
innovative, creative, and intelligent. You
dress flamboyantly, gravitating towards large
feathers and tinsel. Everyone respects you, and
looks up to you. We are not worthy, we are not

books and things [11 Nov 2003|06:48pm]
OMG my amazon.com books came in today!$#A%@!$@!# They weren't due to arrive for another week!! I love amazon.com. Here's what I ordered!!!:

The Psychic Life of Power, Judith Butler
Butler is amazingly awesome and this is a study in what I'm interested in now, the internalization of normative powers, rather than just their representation in the social sphere.

Bodies That Matter, Judith Butler
One of her best books, I've read it before but I don't have a copy of my own, it's very wonderful.

Freud As Philosopher: Metapsychology After Lacan, Richard Boothsby
Metapsychology is really interesting and I don't know much about it, this looks at new theories of psychoanalysis, which is the theoretical basis for understanding internalization of normativity (as in Butler, above)

American Psycho, Brett Ellis
Required for class and the initial reason I ordered! Funny how it turned into over a hundred dollars.

Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film, Carol Clover
I'm working on a paper on zombies, disability, and performativity for an upcoming collection of essays, and this is arguably the best horror film theory book since Kristeva's Powers of Horror (which I have checked out from the library now)

Disability Studies: Enabling the Humanities
Collection of essays on disability studies by several important people, I've gotten this over interlibrary loan before and it's an extremely excellent collection, in my opinion the best disability theory reader out there; and one of the editors is Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, who is the Judith Butler of disability theory, a very excellent scholar.

in heaven there is no beer...
that's why we drink it here...
and when we're gone from here...
our friends will be drinking all our beer...

holy shit this is fabulous! [10 Nov 2003|01:43pm]
Picasso, speaking to an earnest philosopher.

Philosopher: "Mr. Picasso, the picture of your wife is striking but her face is quite distorted."

Picasso politely asks, in return, to see the philosopher's wife; the latter proudly removes the photograph from his wallet.

Picasso: "Indeed, your wife is extraordinarily beautiful, but I see she is very, very small."

But this is the point which popular consciousness will never 
that a macerated and trampled body,
crushed and compiled
by the suffering and pain of being nailed to the cross
like the ever living body of Golgotha
remains superior to a spirit handed over to all the phantasms
	of the interior life
which is merely the leaven
and the seed
for all the stinking phantasmagorical bestializations.

the eight legs of the devil now are crawling up my spine [02 Nov 2003|06:17pm]
[ mood | appreciative ]

Diamanda Galas is the most beautiful creature on this planet. If her soul was in the body of that boy below, I would never rest until he was mine and I was his.

My Vanderbilt application is complete. Now all I have to do is wait.

There are some people whose comprehension is so powerful that it usurps the comprehension of all those who entangle themselves within it. Here is a quotation from the latest email I've received from my new internet penpal, who is one of those people:
"A tired-eyed baby boomer relishes his salty mouthful of adolescence
while his intoxicated boy's limp penis drips with saliva that smells of
sour beer and cheese sticks and rotting tonsils."

I oppose its implicit sentiment, and yet I cannot help but admire its all-pervasive grok. Probably more to come on that.

robotic chess ire cat [22 Oct 2003|01:04pm]
[ mood | aggravated ]

A very unpleasant experience playing chess with the former infatuation Kevin. He doesn't say anything, respond to anything I say, does nothing except make the chess moves--if I want that I can just play against the computer. He used to be so metastatic, what happened to him? His soul dried up and got puked up like a peach pit. Or passed like a kidney stone I guess. And of course 'soul' doesn't have any religious meaning to it, I would think that is obvious but some person the other day was all like, you can't use that word because it's too religious! And he refused to accept my definition of it as merely the depth of one's involvement with the environment (and by that I don't mean trees and the ozone layer you silly green party faggot).

goddamn that boy is beautiful. too bad he's straight.

I just got back from Florida last night; I was not impressed with the whole Popular Culture Association of the South. some guy there actually preferred Justice League to Teen Titans! damn him.

mouse tails are titillating my mouth. is that the correct usage of the word? it should be if it's not.
