I Know Where The Rocks


(via Beyond the Beyond)

Edgy cute vs cute sinister.

"A man of the village of Tah-hiang exclaimed of him, 'A great man is Confucius!--a man of extensive learning, and yet in nothing has he quite made himself a name!'
    The Master heard of this, and mentioning it to his disciples he said, 'What then shall I take in hand? Shall I become a carriage diver, or an archer? Let me be a driver!' "
            --The Analects (tr Jennings, ca 1890)

Denialists as abusers.

Elephant with an artificial leg.

If the earth cannot be put right nor our denial perfected, likewise our most relevant art must refuse the stories of apocalypse & of transcendence alike. What remains? A clue lies in the Japanese concept of kintsugi, 'beautiful repair'. We join to what is irrevocably broken our best try at a kludge, bricoleurs of forgiveness.

The General of Dead Armies.
