I like the works they were not viseral but lingual, verbal, visual.

It's all about the paintings—and those are some fabulous paintings.

And, if Cecily is a good “rake” (would that be a british social climber in the USA? hogarth to hockney to cecily?) then she's adding value. A female rake, du. Hmmm.

I gambled in two graveyards
I won against the odds
With the smiling saints
And the silent saviours
With the maggots and the gods
I cursed the things they showed me
I could never see again
And the howling of the wind at night
I wrote upon the rain

I found the thing
For which I prayed
And came back home
To the usa
With a heart of stone
And now I know
That it?s the same
Wherever you go

I like the knownothing minds! I am reluctant to categorize, I took from the phrase: autumn leaves as external even seasonal; size matters, and success, with that in mind I reject that any art expensive/low priced if it be art and it be, then it's way beyond retail.

River, river have mercy
Take me down to the sea
For if I perish on these rocks
My love no more I'll see
I've thought of you in far-off places
I've puzzled over lipstick traces
So help me God, I will not cry
And then I think of Lorelei
Friday nite: add 3 shots of tequila for a BAD 2 weeks

Driving in my big black car
Nothing can go wrong
I'm going and I don't know how far
So, so long.

Maybe I'll sleep in a Holiday Inn
Nothing can hurt me
Nothing can touch me
Why should I care?
Driving's a gas
It ain't gonna last.

Sunny day, highway
If it rains it's all the same.
I can't feel a thing
I can't feel a thing

I've got a big black car.

Nothing can hurt me
Nothing can touch me
Why should I care?
Driving's a gas
It ain't gonna last.

The lights above, oh yes.
I see the stars above

No one could accuse you of being thoughtless, its about the paintings and brakes, taking leaves, as they appear brown. Rake, Rake, greave, need, bleed souls progress sounds fun, like sex in the city. Rake is more socially acceptible than a 'hoe'.

Re: Rake's Progress

by zipthwung (01.29.05 02:23 pm)

I have perceiv'd that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is
To pass among them or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly
round his or her neck for a moment, what is this then?
I do not ask any more delight, I swim in it as in a sea.

There is something in staying close to men and women and looking
on them, and in the contact and odor of them, that pleases
the soul well,
All things please the soul, but these please the soul well.

“Mike, Mike?” she said.

“That's the best I can give you,” he said. "That's all I've got.

Dispatcher: “OK, do you want to give it up then, because that doesn't make sense.”

Wamsley: “I don't know, I don't know.”

Dispatcher: “You don't want to give it up, do you?”

Wamsley: “No, I don't.”

Dispatcher: “Yeah, I don't either.”

Wamsley: “But I'm freezing, and my girlfriend is freezing, and . . .”

Dispatcher: “That's why we want to help you, Mike.”

I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking bout everything... but then again I was thinking about nothing, and then my Mom came in, and I didn't even know she was there. She called my name but I didn't hear her. Then she started screaming, “Mike, Mike!” And I go, “What? What's the matter?” She goes, “What's the matter with you?!” I go, “There's nothin' wrong Mom.” She goes, “Don't tell me that, you're on drugs!” I go, “No Mom, I'm not on drugs. I'm okay, I'm just thinking, you know. Why don't ya give me a Pepsi?” She goes, “No, you're on drugs!” I go, “Mom, I'm okay, I'm just thinking.” She goes, “No, you're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't act in that way!” I go, “Mom, just give me a Pepsi please, all I want is a Pepsi.” And she wouldn't give it to me! All I wanted was a Pepsi! Just one Pepsi! And she wouldn't give it to me! Just a Pepsi!

what about the show?

anyone see the show? any thoughts?

do roberta and jerry really feel this way?

where did the great pic of clem/harrison go.

Personally, i couldn't live with any of the paintings. there was one that was ok in the small room on the west wall; otherwise, boring. it looks to me that there was minimal personal investment in the work, in other words.. academic?

Re: Rake's Progress

by penelope (01.31.05 01:18 pm)

jerry agrees with u:
Because, for all their ostensible explicitness or openness, these paintings have a remarkably low quotient of self-exposure. They're impersonal, almost anonymous. They reflect an artist who clearly wants to make great paintings but is settling for far too little.

Re: Rake's Progress

by wally cox (01.31.05 01:34 pm)

We're sorry
But you're no longer needed
Or wanted
Or even cared about here
Machines can do a better job than you
This is what you get for asking questions

The unions agree
'Sacrifices must be made'
Computers never go on strike
To save the working man you've got to put him out to pasture

Looks like we'll have to let you go
Doesn't it feel fulfilling to know
That you?the human being?are now obsolete
And there's nothing in hell we'll let you do about it

Soup is good food?(We don't need you any more)
You made a good meal?(We don't need you any more)
Now how do you feel?(We don't need you any more)
To be shit out our ass
And thrown in the cold like a piece of trash
We're sorry
You'll just have to leave
Unemployment runs out after just six weeks
How does it feel to be a budget cut?
You're snipped
You no longer exist

Your number's been purged from our central computer
So we can rig the facts
And sweep you under the rug
See our chart? Unemployment's going down
If that ruins your life that's your problem

Soup is Good Food, Etc.
We're sorry
We hate to interrupt
But it's against the law to jump off this bridge
You'll just have to kill yourself somewhere else
A tourist might see you
And we wouldn't want that

I'm just doing my job, you know
So say uncle
And we'll take you to the mental health zoo
Force feed you mind-melting chemicals
Til even the outside world looks great

In hi-tech science research labs
It costs too much to bury all the dead
The mutilated disease-injected
Surplus rats who can't be used anymore

So they're dumped (with no minister present)
In a spiraling corkscrew dispose-all unit
Ground into sludge and flushed away
Aw geez?.

Soup is good food
You made a good meal, etc?.
We know how much you'd like to die
We joke about it on our coffee breaks
But we're paid to force you to have a nice day
In the wonderful world we made just for you
“Poor Rats”, we human rodents chuckle
At least we get a dignified cremation
At yet
At 6:00 tomorrow morning
It's time to get up and go to work

Title: Tarantula: poems
New York, St. Martin's Press, 1994
Description: 137 pgs, 23 cm, with an Elliott Landy photo of Dylan at the piano on the cover.

Notes: Reprint of the original, after 10 years out of print. The first edition did not have “poems” in the title of the book.

Title page text: This is a work of fantasy and imagination. (Also in the first edition of the book.)

Back cover text: Tarantula is a poetic work that shows Bob Dylan at a point in his artistic evolution when word play and the exploration of spontaneously occurring ideas came as naturally to him as breathing. An essential volume for those seeking further insight into Dylan's creative process, this book of poetry opens the door to an engaging and thought-provoking free-verse world in which to lose oneself. (With a Tarantula hanging down the middle of the page on a single strand of spider's web.)
