Large Red Man Reading

If you'd've suggested that the Moebius strip Stevens devises is one of embarrassment and candor instead of irony and sincerity, I'd've had firsthand evidence that I'm finally dreaming in color, as if in the native hue of resolution. I agree with the poster who can't believe (Heideggerian) you is writing for Tikkun, as well as with the poster who likes -- and no doubt learns from (as do I) -- your writing on music (hence, with your wife).

Boy, do I miss the days when a mind as by turns expansive, generous and brilliant as yours seemed as expendable as the EPA seems now. I was then what we still refer to now as a rich American.

Re: Large Red Man Reading

Thanks. That's a lot to parse, but it makes me happy to try. Irony and sincerity is a pretty threadbare binary, I realize, but sometimes you gotta go where the river wants to flow.

Jeepers.

Thought you'd know me by the trail of deadpan. But let me help with the parsing: Who would pun on the name Stevens (i.e., Sufjan v. Wallace ["Large Red Man Reading"]), insinuate Hamlet into the irony v. sincerity mess (Ophelia: "I was the more deceived") and end by facetiously dragging in the Marti(a)n defiles?

Only someone still mourning the suicided French popstar, er, Dalida.

Re: Parsimoaning

Well, there are thousands of possibilities out there, but I'll guess that you're reveling in rivalry.
