  1. That mentions the Bulgarian umbrella, doesn't it?
  2. 7. Good, fulfilling, but not much oomph. I like a BM that makes me think my knees would buckle if I stood too soon.
  3. Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.
  4. Depends on the context of the destruction. With things like mandalas, there is an element of impermanence. With Francis Alys performance piece "Sometimes Making Something Leads To Nothing," there is the act of making the film but also the act of destroying the large block of ice by pushing and kicking it around the city as it melts and chips. With Naomi Uman's "Removed," the destruction of pornographic images with things like bleach and nail polish remover is both a comment on the dehumanization of women in mainstream pornography, and a tongue-in-cheek use of common domestic cleaning products. Hollis Frampton's "Nostalgia" includes burning photographs, which requires the same process in making and displaying film: time and light, so to speak. A friend of mine once used M80s to contribute color to his work, by exploding acrylic paint tubes beneath the canvas. Erasure poems require blacking out text in order to create something new, often with a meaning that speaks as commentary on the text itself.
  5. I'm 30. I have quite a few short stories out in the world, some poetry, and my MFA thesis, which was roughly three-fifths of a now-completed novel manuscript I've been sending off to small presses. Published my first short story when I was 22 or so. It wasn't very good.
  6. The key is to be brainless
  7. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_not_feed_the_animals
  8. The do not feed at parks is usually about introducing foods that aren't part of an animals diet.
  9. Well it's been months of this, and it's been charming
  10. Me too VID_314590528_122452_241.mp4
