allied tutorial bitch [updated]

In blogging, we do not get to be who we want, and we are Everything We Ever Were, at the same time. We are someone, no one, and everyone. We are the same and radically different. We are completely present and absolutely absent.

I've talked with long-time blog friends, and written here in the past, about the duality, triality, multi-ality of blogging. It is mind bending--how it can be everything, and simultaneously, nothing at all. Because we are here and we aren't. That is precisely what blogging is.

I have always operated within that context, not the one that constrains me like a straight-jacket today.

#9. To run with a mob and lynch even a person who deserves it is not satire, but a sin.

What showed up instead, en masse, was a lot of ego-underbelly. The dark side of narcissism.

Madame L:

Going back to the metropolis, my idea is that we are not facing a process of development and growth of the old city, but the institution of a new paradigm whose character needs to be analysed. Undoubtedly one of its main traits is that there is a shift form the model of the polis founded on a centre, that is, a public centre or agora, to a new metropolitan spatialisation that is certainly invested in a process of de-politicisation, which results in a strange zone where it is impossible to decide what is private and what is public. via

I doubt this will help: NYT or, if moneywall, here.

"I am not getting what this is all about," me neither. But, Tom, you are very good at producing that effect. Thank you. I feel better now.
