2004Publishing on the web
makes me appreciate the role of the Editor. Better, the Editor's eagle anus
(it's all about the rear-view). The number of typos, grammar errors and odd
spelling mistakes in the above piece will forever consign me to scrubbing clean
the busts of temporal cavities, just to the left of subject-verb agreements, in
the dusty pantheon of wordy errors.And
although I never stand down on anything I have written, certainly I feel like
what has been drifted through in this piece is far from an opinion. It aims to
act as a context, poetic response, affect or refraction. Kind of like a broken
mirror, angled slightly, revealing the absence where the camera should be. If
techno is a conduit--which would mean that, in terms of its ontology, it acts as
a traveller, it "is" a traveller, it is a
in the sense that it moves, carries things, always in motion--then this writing
also courses, flows, and hits interruptions (and especially, temporal blockages
and impossible sentences that cannot be read only once). It is both the virtue
and the downfall of such writing that it is often difficult to read, and it
tires me too. But out of such garbage is picked the smelliest things to adorn
the living room of our culture and its epochal monument, the toilet (otherwise
known as the television).Toilet
