saturdaynote



No news really, apart from what I noted on the gedavis.com home page today. I may update here and there before the end of the month; probably not, because the offline “cultivating” is the basic pleasure (not deriving brief narratives of good sense). I just can’t know before I feel like doing it. But I’ll at least have a lot more than a note like this by December 30.


November 4

I’m too busy to do substantive updating. But I’ll at least update
the update date here, so you know I’m not forgetting that I’m failing
to make your new visit here novel.

Cycle 2 of cohering.net is done (as I noted earlier).

My blogs are coordinated (what links, what does not; what’s archival offline, what’s not).

I’m secure about the worth and integrity of what I’ve done over the years.

I’m not looking back for quite awhile, I expect.

the delicious other of disclosure



I was dreading to update the gedavis.com home page with a disappointing apology for having nothing much to say. But I came up with a note that I’m happy with—especially the ending, in implicit honor of my streaming last night of “That Obscure Object of Desire” (1977, but remastered in 2001), which is now a dated (rather outdated) experiment in scripting sexist stereotypes and playing with elderly auteurial despair about life in 1977, not only as times which were shockingly insane, but also as absurd, perhaps, as sending a satellite-bound gold plaque of nude humans waving into interstellar space?—and having learned to parody aging without a partner in misogynist society.

life is strange, then dies.



John Ashbery, 1927—2017 and me.
