dr_con Posted April 24, 2021 Share Posted April 24, 2021 Spirit Limbs Con/Jur/d, 4/24/2021 I don’t know who suggested it, the three of us huddled, in the front seat of Michael’s car, we always rode this way, back when it was legal, to put as many people, as possible, crushed into, what the auto-space would/could/allow configure to, “Spirit Limbs” someone said, and indeed, the awareness coming from going numb was in play, “The perfect band name for a New Age band, maybe something Goth like Cocteau Twins.” Although, not until later in the decade, experience the first time nor did we know the term “Goth,” still called them Decadents, referring to Huysmans’ “Against Nature” as the codex for the 1980s, something still true, important for cultural anthropologists, curious how “end of history,” eschatologies, (a double negative does not a utopia make) are predicated on the rise of Cronenberg’s embodied vision. Not to say, driving in this condition, bodies intertwined, both in anatomy and neurochemically, with exogenous and endogenous allies wrapping/hugging/penetrating/binding us together in a gestalt, a whole which is greater than the sum of the parts, although explaining it demonstrates how amputated we have become, where once, by simply reaching out a hand, a juggling pin appeared, no thought of cause and effect, now we find, Digital Natives, more likely to understand cultural references we took for granted, as part of our geostrategic birthright. A phantom organic pang of pleasure and pain, something we lost, “Look in the glove box?” “Can’t” Laughing, we spill, out/down/around Quote thegateless.org Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
