siren song of the mass

Because of the event

of this eye, this smile, this tilt of shoulder, this voice,

(and

of the incisive mustache of this mucilaginous conversationalist

)

the organizing anchors of our trust are deep, sound, aligned.

The shoes complement the purse quite nicely, doncha think? I've long held the belief that we are going backwards, toward the Primitive. I didn't realize we were already there! Of course there are some benefits in being a Modern Primitive. Our icons and idols tilt their heads and move their lips. Saves me the effort.

move their lips isn't that what the ventriloquist is supposed to not do? vide infra John Ray, Jr., Ph.D.

tom, I've always bought into the idea that life back then - sometime - was better. Perhaps during The Plague, say.

As for the art of the ventriloquist, yes you're right, but the particularly mesmerizing jaw chop of the dummies is part of the art, oops act. I can never ever watch a newscast on television without noticing and focussing and being distracted by the contrived tics that are the signature flourishes of the professional cryers. What I am supposed to hear/digest enters my being not through the brain but through my, oh I don't know, liver? feet? hamstrings? Where a tribal beat pounds into the solar plexis, these present day rays of sunshine leak through some sort of crack, just can't figure out where that crack is. The obvious answer is the eye and the ear. We see and hear a magician, but he is appealling to our dupe nature. Maybe we a have a "buy" gene. Must buy caulking.

Watching Mr. Bush last night, I noticed he kept glancing down at my crotch. I mean it was hard to notice, but I did.

My package as the presidential prompter? It's sure to appeal to some...

re pix

'She' could be threatening to strangle herself. 'He' to punch him out.

Mustn't 'one' give them a hand?
