i can’t shake the feeling that i spent too much time with anthony kiedis. that, and the politics of nip/tuck are so maddeningly flawed-maddening in the way that one can’t stop watching-the surgeries or the plot-arrgh. ok,so i feel that i am on the verge of a penalty situation with the library experiment, but all in all, things are going fairly well. i know it’s not a race, but i can’t help but feel a little relief to find that this one is so wonder-full and concise. i’m not sure why it took so long to get to it, but i’m certain that margaret atwood‘s bigup put it on my radar for reals. i don’t know how the ford mayors are doing on their diet, but this one would be a good one to read on the treadmill.

“The poet, the artist, the sleuth-whoever sharpens our perception tends to be antisocial; rarely ‘well-adjusted,’ he cannot go along with currents and trends. A strange bond often exists among anti-social types in their power to see environments as they really are.” (88)

“History as she is harped. Rite words in rote order.” (108-9)
