Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

Heavy Rotation
Here are some of the things on my mind these days:
• The Fall
• pollen
• Seattle
• steak
• Dennis Hopper
• the state of exception
• interior passing
• Alain Badiou
• the first person singular
Das Boot
• shoulders
• boom microphones
• The Dramatics
• Northern Virgina
• relative humidity
• interstices
• peach
• Flight 93
• hormones
• Thom Gunn
• marks on the floor
• rattlesnakes
• Dada
• those huge aviator glasses all the college girls wear
• heat
• Barry Bonds
• disinterest
• English muffins
• hugging
• ideas for offensive bumper stickers
• muscle cars
• Bean
It's not an exhaustive list, to be sure, but I'm happy with the way it represents the desiccated wash of my consciousness.

let us have some of those ideas for offensive bumper stickers.

Themed for the immigration debate:
• Aztlan was a pansy lion
• Jesus was a Mexican
• Jackson Pollock was a nigger
There you have it.

I would love to know more about your ideas for offensive bumper stickers.

See above. . .

I like this form for an LJ post. Maybe I'll "steal" it and make my own list. The list tells a story all its own, while I'm sure the words command their own stories, too. Made me think of my own stories. Very spider-webby! Hope you're well!

Overwhelmed like you. But alright. I miss you! Good luck with everything.

2) pollen is relatively tame for me this season - a first;
6) I always think about the state of exception - my own that is;
10) Das Boot was one of my father's favorite books and I can still see the worn copy on the shelves he built that lined the top of the wall of his office almost to the ceiling (exactly like the shelves in Julian's other apartment, the one you all stayed in last year);
11) I was admiring my shoulders all night last night in the gym as I was working out;
17) peaches are my favorite fruit;
26) I spend way too much time trying to like Barry Bonds as a person and am trying to focus only on the ball playing;
29) I am nor ever will be someone who enjoys hugging;
30) I've dated more than one person simply b/c of the muscle cars they drove.

I love the way you numbered everything! It's funny how a list that's deliberately obtuse can open up avenues of communication. I should do this more often.

ideas for offensive bumper stickers

How about "My other ride is your mom"?

"I call her my 'Big Red Minivan.'"

I salute you for your ability to construct such a long list from that dessicated wash. I get too obsessive to have such a long list ... I'd pick something to start the list, say Sleater-Kinney since that's what I'm most thinking of today, and I'd never get to the second item on the list because I'd obsess about Sleater-Kinney until I'd wrung it dry.

Oh, I do that to. It takes a lot of effort to move from one fixation to the next. No Sleater-Kinney in Arizona again. They came to Tucson in 2002. They may never come again.
