I have no idea what you are saying but I love the way you say it.


I guess it's encouraging to think that the newly discovered eternal connections will result in some kind of relevant art in the future. Sadly I must live in the present. I am glad to know that I am not barking mad when I think there is little to admire in most of current culture.

As someone nearing completion of a Ph.D., I agree with an awful lot of this. It's not just art theory, either. It's radical-sounding theory that secures your position in a status-based, careerist, organization (the academy). It's orthodoxies masquerading as insurgent movements. Its phrases like "the fallacy of relevance" (yup, I've heard it). I absolutely agree about the abandonment of populism, too.

We should talk sometime. I need to get back and see Charleston after all these years.
