p.s. Jesus fucking Christ, there's more than 140 comments here. A new record, obviously. Wow, thanks. Now, on the other hand, hopefully you're all happily talking to each other back in there -- I haven't looked yet -- because there's no way in the world can I interract with all these posts today. So if I don't get to some people, which is pretty much guaranteed considering I have limited blog time today, forgive me. Main thing is, thanks for doing whatever you doing in there on my blog. Yikes. Now, big cheer for math tinder's extraordinary Day, okay? Pretty great, no? Thanks a ton, mt. Now I'll dig into the comments as best I can. ** Adjoun, Yeah, Lautreamont's a big influence from way back in my teens. ** Lost child, You reached ever higher heights yesterday. ** Paul america, No problem, man. Listen, as a Day building veteran, I know the difficulties. Whenever it comes I'll be thrilled, as will this lot. thanks for the update. ** Math tinder, Thanks again for this masterpiece. Nice Jobriath stuff. I smoke (when I'm able to) Camel Wide Lights. Since they're not sold here in France, I smoke the vastly inferior Camel Blue (the European Camel Lights). ** Atheist, Congrats on the new niece. One more presumably weird, cool kid in the world, awesome. ** Katsim, Oh, see, that's an interesting take on myspace. I'll try to check out the mag. Oh, you're on your way to the US! You must report in from the States at first light, okay? Wanna know you're okay, your thoughts, etc., you know. ** David ehrenstein, If you read this before interviewing John, and it's appropriate, pass along my respects. I've never met him, but I think we have mutual friends. Anyway, whatever, enjoy each other. You're friends with Kirby Dick? I haven't seen him in yonks, but we were/are friendly. He's great, yeah. And he did that sweet docu on my great, late friend Bob Flanagan. ** Creative massacre, Someone probably has a lengthier, more thoughtful take on the Christian obsession with Heavy Metal, but I assume it's just the genre's fondness for Satanic imagery, references, and acoutrement crossing wires with the paranoia, delusional states, and questionable IQs of hardcore Christians. ** Larkspur, Thanks a lot for the film festival report. The Resnais, Bertolucci/Pasolini are now on my must-see list. Interesting the Aronofsky sucks. I sort of figured. ** Perspects, Great, I'm going to hunt down every shred of recent Eric Gaffney? You've heard his new stuff? What do you think? ** Antonio, You were around a lot this weekend, and in top form, I might add. Coming back to the blog on Monday is always kind of a weird experience, sort of maybe like a guy who says to his friends, Sure, you can have a party at my place while I'm wherever I am, and then he when he comes back, there's nobody there, but there's all this stuff: Derrida books, Vincent Gallo DVDs, piles of weird drugs, baby clothes, airline tickets, uh ... used condoms, scribbled notes to me scattered around, etc., and other stuff, and then he's like an archeologist and his house is like an Egyptian temple or something. Or not. I don't know what I'm saying. Anyway, it's strange. Dude, you know I am so totally there on the buying Halloween costumes front. If I was rich, and I was in America, I would buy so much Halloween stuff you can't even imagine. Do you have those yearly Halloween stores where you are -- these huge stores of only Halloween stuff that only open for a month a year? There's a bunch of them in LA. I get so excited in those places I have to hold onto the shelves when I walk around because my knees go weak. Anyway ... ** Jheorgge, Oops and, at the same, no surprise on the badness of 'The Black Dahlia.' Thanks for saving me the 9 euro or whatever. ** Michael karo, New pix. I'll go have a look. Cool. Red faced I will admit I was a reasonably passionate Yes fan up to a certain, early point only. 'Tales of Topographic Oceans' killed it. I met my first boyfriend Julian while sleeping overnight at the Forum in LA to get Yes concert tickets, so they had a purpose. That newspaper article is great. The first time I read your post, I thought it was three girls who dug up the cute dead girl, and I was really excited then. But it beings boys is still interesting. Plus, the next time I do necrophilia, I'm definitely going to do it in Wisconsin. So thanks for the tip. ** D., Welcome back. Look forward to having you around more. Liked your back and forth about Vincent Gallo. ** Joe mills, Me and Bowie share a strange psychological problem? Well, that explains a lot. You took that photo of that soap dispenser in your own bathroom, didn't you? Fess up. ** Dynmoose, Very glad your kid's allright, but I am quite concerned about the Weavie thing. I mean that sounds serious. I hope he gets his shit together and has that checked. Do tell when there's news on that, okay? ** Statictick, Like I just said to dynomoose, I'm a bit edgy about this Weavie thing. I hope you're okay. ** Rigby101, Great posts. ** Jeff, Hey. Sorry about the computer problems. Sure, obviously, you can do Ulver Day first. Whatever interests you and seems like the most doable and fun. An honor. Yeah, Blanchot, he's my man. Karl Kraus ... now that's an interesting idea. Karl Kraus Day, hm. Daunting, and yet ... Let's see. ** Mizu, christopher michael stamm, Hi! ** Jax, Edwyn Collins was never a fetish object of mine until you mentioned his mouthy, snide, very fey qualities, and, sure enough, ... boi-i-ing. ** Will, Nice. ** 5stringaphasia, Your back and forth with david e. on Derrida was cool. I fear I'm in the fan of Derrida camp. Not that he's a God to me like Blanchot or Bataille or whoever else. But then I have a European and especially French philosophy/theory fetish. It's like porn to me. Not that it gives me a boner. I just like reading it kind of indiscriminately, getting lost in it, scratching my chin and going 'hm, that's quite true' or 'hm, interesting point, not that I agree' or etc. while I'm reading it. Plus, you can get some really good writing/prose/setence structure ideas sometimes. But whatever. It don't matter. ** C., That words/sluts/whores thing is really brilliant. ** Paradigm, 'We Have to Talk About Kevin': I'm almost sure I read that, though I don't remember anything about it. I always read books when they have titles like that, i.e. 'I Know My Name is Steven.' And yeah, scrolling through here today with one eye on the clock is intense, though, now that I'm almost the bottom, I have to say it was one of the best deays here ever in quality as well as quantity. ** Oh, I am at the bottom. Well, luckily you guys were engaged mostly with each other and not me, but I still feel like I skimped today in my responses. Oh, well, I'll make it up to you, etc. Enjoy the Day, tell its brilliant creator what you think, and see ya.
