|506> animal sorced food to feed hour datastream back ∃est w/ nails out eating our own tale|
24 Nov 2016 | Portland, OR> aft'r turning 50 spent thxgiving here in our town of berth. Up til th age of 25 we dint do no drugs or drink hardly a drop (sides a few drunken mishaps in our tweens) .. then th 2° quarter of our life we adapted mas to hooch like mos ppl due .. but leading up to yr #50 (as we push o'er said hill) we now considering spendin' th 3° quarter of our life sober + clean .. part of th reason Minor Threat inspired th soundtrack to our resent hed-shaving .. not that we gonna go full-on strait edge on U, dear Inurnet surfers, but such holiday events reinforce our thinking how dumb ppl act when drinking .. part of this allso relaytes to th 4 psycohlogical states weave talk'd of time + time b'fore:
.. both in our life + in our riding of A Raft Manifest feels like we entering stage 3 (conchus know-how) .. wich purhaps also means we start spelling + riding granmatickly carwreck? In any event, inter us a sober + clean + responsible stage of our life we think .. to pave th way so we can finish out our life in unconchus stupor where ∀ll beecombs 2° naychair sin think/datastreaming.
Reading Sometimes We Walk With Our Nails Out by Sarah Bartlett .. not sure where we got this book, but Bartlett hails from Portland so figgerd her appropriate .. poetry, wich we dont read much, but seems good for th genre .. intresting language, perhaps a bit precious for our tastes.
25 Nov | PDX to DC> also started to read The Practice of Everyday Life by Michel de Certeau but s/he bored us to deth .. another book we not sure where we got or for that matter what s/he = about. So insted red The Lives of Animals by JM Coetzee, which we pick'd up @ Powell's. So Princeton invites Coetzee to give a lecture there wich resulted in this post-postmodern es-story about a fictional novelist (Elizabeth Costello) giving a lecture @ a fixional university about animal rites + whatnot but even then knot so much an s-say on animal rites as mise en abîme navel-gazing fillosofee skirtin' thorny issues w/ tung embeddid so deep in cheek hard to swallow the «food for thought» .. or food to feed th datastream as we dicebat (aft'r ∀ll «To be a living bat is to be full of being.»)
26 Nov | DC to Copenhagen> home in DC < 20 hrs b'for we wint back to th airport to continue flyin' father ∃estwords now to Europa .... to cont. our datastream on Coetzee's book (based on notes we typed to ourself on our dumbphone) .. actually, th s-say by Coetzee cumprizes scarce ½ th book, th rest filled by introductions + follow-ups by notabull ackademicks in relidgun/ethics/literachur/biology etc. .. wich ∀ll seem'd a bit mucho (specially as anudder book we red recently (What is Posthumanism?) also wint on + on about The Lives of Animals + ∀ll her repercussions) .. tho yearned us to hear an ecologist's take on th subjick—if every1 + their mudders ate nuts + berrys mor animals wd probly suffer ± die ± git displaced by deforestation, etc. We mo' cuncerned w/ quality of life (wile alive) then killing of life. Hell, most farm animals (or factory products as
+ no, our mudder never tot us to not play w/ our food, nor take pitchers .. + yes, we ate our brussel sprouts even tho scarce few things in el moondough we hate more .. no madder what we eat everything put in front of us (+ very rare we throw sumping in our fridge out .. cooking to us about afishinsea, using waht u got @ yo disposal b4 she gose bad). Food waste another topic scarce few wanna talk about xcept may'b Tristam Stuart .. th topic of another post entirely (we blog'd a bit alreddy here) ..
27 Nov | Paris, France> an hour in Copenhagen airport .. then thru th clusterfuck of CDG having to exit + go back thru security + train to another terminal. Waiting for a plane to Montpellier. Watch'd Tarzan on th plane, th over-th-top new-fangled 1, but int. th idea of Tarzan .. feral dude raised by apes. Dint sleep a wink, startin to hit us now. To finish our datastream about Coetzee's animal book .. todo in moderation. Dont say no, but steer clear of habits + hardfast rules. make th most sensible choice given th situation that minimizes our impact + makes us feel bedder about ourself, fizsickly + spiritchewly.
+ now in Montpellier, but aint much new to say, we said our piece here over th summer .. Inurnet still sucks as does th food .. walk'd around lookin for sumpin to eat, slim pickings unless u into crappy crepes, goose liver or saucy beef, served w/ a dose of cigarette smoke wafting from every table.
