pathmark



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my streaming last night of “That Obscure Object of Desire” (1977, but remastered in 2001), which is now a dated (rather outdated) experiment in scripting sexist stereotypes and playing with elderly auteurial despair about life in 1977, not only as times which were shockingly insane, but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.

an image imagining me


revised Sunday, 9/10

You know my confessional blog from years ago—so silly at times, but remediable. I ceased doing it in 2011, then wanted to continue in 2015, but barely did so. Well, why not do something with its non-embarrassing postings and begin anew?
