|Last throes of the white towel into the sewerside of black night falling past
5 Feb 2020> Kicking off episode 10 of Textiloma, wich is chronologically where the hero of our story, Ulysses, dies. We're halving to do more journel transcribing to ketch up, specially since U's diarea ran out... U onely wrote 1 post in '97 (wich weave edited in 1st personal plural to match the stile of the rest of the liebro + we also speak about Ulysses in 2nd personal (not you, but U), as if this was all written to U, for U + ½ by U):
+ then 3 months later U died, buey, sew we’re left to fill in the gaps w/ the journels of our other-½ (Telemachus) to try to figger out what happyend, where our brother-½ Ulysses wint? Most of U’s posts in '95+ '96 resembled the 1 above... U’d long since hit rock bottum. But where to go from dare? We god our theories... a lot of your fictions deal w/ heroes leaving on 1-way missions—ether weigh up into the Himalayus, or deep into outerspace— + never coming back, or returning in an altered, elevated state... ether weigh, really high INT.0 the atmosfear. We don’t beleave U died, ox, we wreckon U just got rrrreeeeaaaallllyyyy high.
We've bin reading Night Falls Past: Understanding Suicide by KayRedfield Jamison, a book sum 1 left in our liebury boox... perhaps sum 1 who reads The Daily Noose + is concerned about our well-being? Thx, bud don't worry yo, weed personally never consider sewerside (we love + are loved for starters), we're just intrested in the subject, in theory. As Camus says in The Myth of Sisyphus: Dare's onely 1 rreeaallllyy sirius philosophical problem + dat is sewerside. Jamison says dat suicide is unique to humuns, tho we don't toetilly agree, just like we don't agree w/ the likes of Chompsky who say landgauge is unique to humuns. Whoose to say what the motives are of wails that beach themsevles? Just cuz animals don't got weapons or the means to take the e-z way out don't mean they wouldn't if they could. And most animals wd probly abuse drugs if they had access to them, think sighingtists have demonstraited dat, no?
6 Feb> Anywaze, we got moss to ssey on the subject but we'll save it for Textiloma. Suffice to ssey, Ulysses din't die, U wint on a 1-way trip (sans U-turns) into outer space or to the top of Fishtale peak in the Himalayus. Like Robert Falcon Scott in pursuit of the South Pole, Ulysses went on this expedition knowing fool-well dat U onely had plenty nuff provisions (inklooting the husky sled gods U used to get U there, wich U ate 1 x 1) to get U dare to your destynation, but not to return alive, ox. We leave U w/ this mixtape to contemplate:
