I am standing in a wide open space with a slow-motion volcano in my heart.


'Zaziel, necessarily desirous

Paul Eluard: I have not always had this certainty, this pessimism which reassures the best among us. There was a time when my friends laughed at me. I was not the master of my words. A certain indifference, I have not always known well what I wanted to say, but most often it was because I had nothing to say. The neccessity of speaking and the desire not to be heard. My life hanging only by a thread.

There was a time when I seemed to understand nothing. My chains floated on the water.

All my desires are born of my dreams. And I have proven my love with words. To what fantastic creatures have I entrusted myself, in what dolorous and ravishing world has my imagination enclosed me? I am sure of having been loved in the most mysterious of domains, my own. The language of my love does not belong to human language, my human body does not touch the flesh of my love. My amorous imagination has always been constant and high enough so that nothing could attempt to convince me of error.

queerscribe    profile - diary
comments:  Humbles me.
discodave    profile - diary
comments:  Because the man understands the significance of paper and vinyl. Because everytime I see his name, I hear the Village People.
gallinula    profile - diary

zaziel    profile - diary
comments:  Fuck false modesty. At least once, let's be honest.
sooner    profile - diary
comments:  Smart, sharp, and funny as hell is reported to be. Still the hub of the Soonerverse, but get your daily dose here: http://www.andromeda.rutgers.edu/~blaho/

jonnydarling    profile - diary

comments:  Flabbergastingly lovable.
theredarmy    profile - diary
comments:  In his own words: "Young male typing...automatically the dick...sheetrock...coughing up some really burly stuff."
awittykitty    profile - diary
comments:  She falls apart in the presence of penises and is formulating a theory of cute naked assedness in males--plus pix of leprechauns jacking off for St. Patrick's Day. How could I not love her?
non-descript    profile - diary
comments:  Beguiling erudition. He's more fascinating than he realizes.
fergie    profile - diary

cyanophyta    profile - diary
comments:  We are all aggregates of our lost worlds. (In response to Jean Guitton.)
dharmabum    profile - diary
comments:  She makes me yearn for California--and I live there! Can an avocado on emmenthaler sandwich be a state of mind?
fadein    profile - diary

mnvnjnsn    profile - diary
comments:  Queen of the Winter Carnival.

whyihateyou    profile - diary
comments:  For every Christ, there is an Antichrist. And then there's Eunice.
squirrelx    profile - diary
comments:  I have a hard time believing she's real and I want to practice my incredulity. I suspect this is written by members of the Squirrel Anti-Defamation League. I'm jealous of their quote hoard.

My favorite music:

Astrud Gilberto
comments:  She made me fall in love with a sea godling. My Boy From Ipanema. Except he was from Encinitas.
Marionettes For Cheap
comments:  I'm sure you've never heard of them. The band lasted for almost 8 months. I was the MFC's Road Manager and Fucktoy for 6 of those months. My most favorite band in the whole wide world.
Dean Martin
comments:  As a child, I wanted to grow up to be an amalgam of Dean Martin, Cary Grant, Mark Twain, Leonardo da Vinci, Tarzan and the Count of Monte Cristo, with Yannick Noah's ass. My boyfriends would be the Hardy Boys and my best girl would be Dorothy Parker
Ottorino Respighi
comments:  Ancient Dances and Airs for Lute - Antal Dorati conducting the Philharmonica Hungaria
Stevie Ray Vaughan
comments:  The Sky is Crying; Couldn't Stand the Weather

My favorite movies:

AS I SEE IT by Greg Gorman, photographer
comments:  Not a movie. But it has lots of pictures. I love books with lots of pictures.
AMPHIGOREY & AMPHIGOREY TOO by Edward Gorey
comments:  Not a movie. But it has lots of pictures. I love books with lots of pictures.
The 14th Edition of the ENCYCLOP∆DIA BRITANNICA
comments:  Not a movie (duh.) 1929. Before the Great Depression, before Hitler, before the atomic bomb. No Israel. No computers. Pages and pages under Freemasonry and Aesthetics, 3 paragraphs under Einstein and Freud. Did ya think our world was immortal?
THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES
comments:  A movie! Won the Oscar for Best Short Animated Film in 1988.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST
comments:  Another movie! (See? I don't have to be an iconoclast all the time.) Sergio Leone's masterpiece.

My favorite authors:

Dave McKean
comments:  CAGES. (Did I mention I love books with lots of pictures?) A coup de maÓtre. (Well, I couldn't say "masterpiece" again, could I?)
Saki
comments:  The short stories. Gems of wickedness. Candy for your inner-child, if your inner-child is half-beast. Or half-angel. Which amounts to the same thing.
THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY
comments:  Yeah, yeah, I know it's a movie. I still want to grow up to be Sam Marlowe.
Ricardo Pinto
comments:  The Stone Dance of the Chameleon
Harlan Ellison
comments:  The short stories. Guaranteed to damage you for life.
