Susan, Susan, in the dirt
Susan, Susan, can't feel hurt
Susan, Susan, Susan, Susan, Susan,

She enriched my soil and my life.

"given an enema and buried in a shoebox" is a stroke of pure genius. In keeping with the tradition of "TO each according to his need", I will take it and claim that I wrote it.

I cried

What ? ! ? ! ? ! ? !

"risk-free sexuality is an inevitable reinvention of the culture of capitalism"

Susan Sontag

What ? ! ? ! ? ! ? !

"Rock, grass, better orgasms, freaky clothes, grooving on nature--really grooving on anything--unfits, maladapts a person for the American way of life."
Susan Sontag

What ? ! ? ! ? ! ? !

- - -

" The traumatic failure of capitalist society to provide authentic outlets for the perennial human flair for high-temperature visionary obsession, to satisfy the appetite for exalted self-transcending modes of concentration and seriousness. The need of human beings to transcend "the person" is no less profound than the need to be a person, an individual. "

Susan Sontag

Oh now I see...of course !

It's obvious !

It means NOTHING !

Of course it means something. You just have to hit the bong a few more times and it will mean anything you want.

Personally, it tells me that there are people saying that are claiming Bush either let Sontag die, or made her die. I don't know if it's true or not, I'm just saying it's out there.

That's good enough for me. I'll spread the word.

Laughed my ass off! Thanks.

" PLANET EARTH IS FLAT "

Apparantly we have all been brainwashed into thinking planet earth is round.

It was all part of a big conspiracy to make us buy maps , books , plastic globes , make us believe in "globalisation " and make us buy GPS equipment and make us eat more McDonald and buy bigger gas guzling SUVs( there has got to be a connection to those two last items... if only Susan Sontag was still around she'd write a long unreadable complicated book about it , full of intelligent words that no one ever uses and full of long sentences that no one would understand but that we would have to believe , because she held the truth , she was the truth , she smoked the truth , she drank the truth , she ate the truth , she farted the truth...)

This idea that planet earth is round is a creation of imperialist america.

Spread the news around the ...well ...horizontally over the pie !

"[...] after which she will be given an enema and buried in a shoebox [...]"

If the corpse is given an enema, you could fit the remains in a #10 envelope.

MrGrumpyDrawers

Hey Lar,
A little bit of respect here.
Remember, "De mortuis, nihil nisi . . ."
Screw it - I loved every word - especially the enema and the shoebox.
Best laugh of the day.

Recommend Kevin Myers' droll column on the Sontaglette, "I wish I had kicked Susan Sontag"

Damn, the woman could Chomsky! In reading about the demands of the mourners to have closure, your writing transcends the visceral need to see and touch their idol...indeed, you commune your spirit and in so doing, you touch ours with the result that our cyberpresence has been enhanced by the intense mourning and needful resolution to know that as cliched as this aphorism might be, life goes on. Beautifully stated and nary a hint of necrophilism.

Friend of USA

Cricket

you might want to have the doctor check you for a case of Suntagtite or Chomskysis

Your writing skills are a bit too good !

Especially your thesis / anti-thesis / synthesis stuff !

Groovy stuff !

Friend of USA

And remember ;

groovy stuff is un - american .

Suntag said it , thus it is a truth.

Cricket

Friend of USA,
Thanks so much. It is the thought of the bong which inspires me. There have been times where we here at BlameBush have not been so charitable and several times we have had to tussle over it.

*hanging my head in shame and looking for a sink of my own under which to correct my lack of communal awareness*

JannyMae

Wow, these posts are getting really DEEP, again! Cricket, for an insect you certainly have a way with words--and philosophy. I agree with Friend of USA, your writing skills are amazing...of course I realize that the bong helps keep things, "nuanced." You have nothing to, "hang your head in shame," about Cricket, but if you are going to insist on chirping under there at two o'clock in the morning, please make sure you are not under MY sink!

"tie-dye, turtlenecks, and tears"

Larry, you have the eye of a most perceptive social scientist and the heart of a poet. Kudos.

Cricket

Well, Larry is very annal retentive about what he cleans his house with. After a few good sniffs, I passed out.
Completely forgot the fork therapy.

I'm still angy about Leary's assassination. Those goddamned jello-dicks just had to take him out ("bumblebees and bumblebirds...... make the bastards eat their words") because he was on the verge of making the world *beautiful*.

"I now watched as her white, shrouded figure drifted away on a sea of hands, like a feminine napkin floating down the Hudson."

Christ, the imagery of that! I'm near tears. Poetry, dammit, pure, transcendent Poetry!
