I saw this once in the guggenheim and it made me feel small and lost, and was one of two paintings that have effected me emotionally to a huge degree
Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.
This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be.
Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe
they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that
This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American
I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.
Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.
P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.
The internet needs to remain a level playing field if it is going to keep doing any of the amazing things that it does.
"This January, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals invalidated the commission’s rules. Unless the FCC responds, internet service providers are free to fashion the internet into something like cable television, with the most desirable news and information behind pricey pay-tiers. It is a very real threat to the delivery of news. Under the current rules, a big cable company could block access to an investigative report about its less-than-stellar customer service. Such frightening scenarios should galvanize anyone who cares about journalistic freedom.”
With Comcast trying to buy out Time Warner? (The largest ISP and cable provider buying the second largest.) This is a very serious problem. If Comcast becomes Ma Bell, we’ll all suffer for it. (Ma Bell was what they called Bell Telephone in ye olden days when it provided all the telephone service in the US. Monopolies are bad.)
im a bad teacher I just sent this lil exuberant missive
Hello all,Today we had a really briskly paced class and my one regret is I spent so much time talking about theory we didn’t have more time to look at Olsen and other poetry. Hopefully it was helpful, though, and will prove more and more useful as we study more poetry that builds on what we’ve already read.
BUT IN CASE YOU WANTED MORE OF THE GREAT DIALECTIC…it seems that there’s sublation everywhere! And so here we go:here is a link to a cover by T-Pain of the song “Royals” by Lorde: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdwRqPqTGNg (am assuming everyone has heard the original song as it is everywhere on the radio…if not I assume you will look it up of your own volition)NOW, in the LORDE song, we have a complaint about ennui, something that harkens back to Morrissey’s melancholic “burn down the disco” of “Panic!”—a complaint that certain popular songs “say nothing to me about my life.” Lorde echoes this. She echoes it in a way that gets at a kind of excess of material culture. Right? OK.SO THEN: T-Pain (1) identifies (correctly, IMO) the racialized origins of Lorde’s critique of material culture and suburban ennui about not being able to identify with songs, and turns her question, basically, on its head, widening our perspective on things: no longer is the problem “why do I feel ennui” but “who gets to feel ennui”; it effectively transforms the entire situation of the song without having to come from “outside” the song to do it. He uses the same song to critique the original song; it is, in a lot of ways, what Marx (our dialectician par excellence) would call an “immanent critique.” Moreover, and still in keeping with our materialist dialectic, T-Pain takes a rather abstract critique of materialism in culture and GROUNDS the sources—ALL PRESERVED FROM LORDE—in the economic realities of the situation of pop music’s production. This looking toward production, not just consumption, will be VERY important for us as we move through the semester.Now, I also am glad this has happened because today we spent a lot of time talking about interventions that come from a discursive, rhetorical, argumentative register that’s generically “outside” poetry. I want you to think about how poetry can comment and critique and argue with and negate and sublate poetry, without having to have recourse ,as we did today and have other days, to things “outside” poetry. I’m not saying we should denigrate or deride the theory; far from it! But I want to think about how poetry composes itself textually, as a textual imaginary, and not just something that is rooted in the romanticism of the lyric subject speaking to itself. This’ll come up in class on Friday with Rukeyser, so don’t worry if you feel a little lost (I’m also sorry to send such a long email—I just got excited and had to share!)Hope everyone has had a lovely evening and is staying warm.See you Friday!Best,David
