a theft from a theft of Jacques Lacan (performed by blgggrrr)

"There is no support for love… as I have told you: to give one’s love, is very precisely and essentially to give as such nothing of what one has, because it is precisely in so far as one does not have it that there is a question of love."

– Seminar V, The Formations of the Unconscious, Seminar of 07.05.1958 (unpublished)

what the fuck is this bullshit?? ehehe

from Mythologies

To induce a collective content for the imagination is always an inhuman undertaking, not only because dreaming essentializes life into destiny, but because dreams are impoverished, and the alibi of an absence.

Roland Barthes

Ambivalent Observations (Aleph)

So much shit comes out of those pretty bodies and they keep moving - with shit interruptions. No, it doesn't interrupt necessarily, they're still pretty at that point (or possible of being). Even in misery. At points it begins to feel like a sea of trash.

Oh my god....

I was looking up a magazine and the person who did it and saw that I had been published in it... nearly ten years ago! Wild. I knew I had been accepted to it but never knew it had actually come out, and tonight I saw it.

Personal Reality Essays: Sidereal Birds: Trans-Species Communication and What Lies Beneath by Joey Gaen;
Joey Gaen! That's me! At that time I was changing my name to 'Gaen' - my middle name is 'Gayne'.

Anyway, wow. CPAOD was a huge influence and inspiration to me as a young teen and forward. I'm sure it's there at the cracks of my personality now. And I've always loved Jasmine Sailing. I was happy to see she's starting CPAOD again but just floored that my essay had gotten through way back then and I'd never known.

For years I'd hoped it had. Like, I would want to tell people that it had. Jasmine had accepted it but I'd never seen the magazine with it in it. As she has said her schedule is erratic. And at that time it was moreso, er, that it had been.

So, yeah.

slender girl on couch

"She's slender
Oh, she's cream
She's face
I took her from place to place
I moved her from room to room
I exploited her
Became the groom
So I write music for soundtracks now
I write music for soundtracks now
(That's what I wanted to do anyhow)"
- lyrics from "Ex -Supermodel" by GBV

Christina Carter's 'Texas Blues Working'

I have been listening to this album all day,
walking in the rain, at school, in a library
writing, on the bus, back in the rain, home
by a fire. It's incredible. I've had it for a while
but it finally hit me today. It's like this space,
but also a feeling.

Christina, you are brilliant.
(See also her site many breaths)

This album was released on cassette and is
unfortunately sold out. I was turned on to it
by Jonathan Mayhew (aka bollo).
