26 years ago today, the world lost E. B. White – remember him with his poetic letter to children on the love of libraries
Patricia A. Monture-Okanee, “The Violence We Women Do: A First Nations View” (via taleth)
Ethereal, tiny, quixotic, Icelandic Björk.
At some point in the past, someone stuck a camera in front of her face and told her to explain television. She does, sort of, referring to the circuit board as a kind of city, describing the almost-reasonable theory of an Icelandic poet, and concluding that a “Danish book” contained the scientifical truth that let her enjoy TV again.
Look, you just have to watch it. It’s transcendent.
Good ole Björk. Explanations of technologies, and what they do to us, generally comes in one brand, despite the huge subjectivity that has to come into play to make these assertions (e.g., ___ rots your brain, and everyone knows it). (Non-technical, human-focused assertions; but even lose technical explanations are super subjectified). So why so few interesting comments?
Always let poets lie to you.
