Eye

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 7:24 PM

"I guess I found my future through Billy Name’s eye.
I saw his pictures of the Warhol Factory when I was
in college and thought, 'Oh that’s the place to get to.
Everyone is so beautiful and it looks brilliant and
complicated – art, music, film, but most of all a kind
of wild life.' It looked like the future as I imagined it."

The late Glenn O'Brien in The Guardian
     
on November 8, 2014.  O'Brien reportedly
     died at 70 yesterday, Friday (April 7) morning,
     in Manhattan.

"… through Billy Name's eye …."
Then there is Kurt Seligmann's eye

The above-mentioned Billy Name appeared in this journal
in July 2016  in the post "Coterie (for Philip Rieff)." Also
featured in that post was artist Kurt Seligmann.

"Diagram of an 8 leaf gathering: Quaternion (8 folio or leaf gathering).
A quaternion is composed of 4 bifolios. Conjugate folios form a bifolio
at either end of a gathering or quire. So in the diagram above folios
1 and 8 which form a bifolio are conjugate folios."

The Curious Case of the Concrete Universal

(Continued)

Erica Goode in the online New York Times  tonight

"Irving Gottesman, a pioneer in the field of behavioral genetics
whose work on the role of heredity in schizophrenia helped
transform the way people thought about the origins of serious
mental illness, died on June 29 at his home in Edina, Minn., a
suburb of Minneapolis. He was 85.

His wife, Carol, said he died while taking an afternoon nap.
Although Dr. Gottesman had some health problems, she said,
his death was unexpected, and several of his colleagues said
they received emails from him earlier that day."

Mythos

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 1:23 PM

Previous references in this journal to the "Church of Synchronology"
suggest a review of that phrase's source —

"The fine line between hokum and rational thinking
is precisely the point of The Lost Time Accidents ;
a brick of a book not just because of its length but
because of the density of both the prose and the
ideas it contains.

It is, in a nutshell, a sweeping historical novel that's
also a love story but is rooted in time-travel
science fiction and takes on as its subject
the meaning of time itself. This is no small endeavor."

Square Dance

From The Telegraph —

And no fact of Alain Resnais’s life seemed to strike a stranger note than his assertion that the films which first inspired his ambition to become a film director were those in which Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers danced. Or was it Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler? He could never be sure. “I wondered if I could find the equivalent of that exhilaration,” he recalled.

If he never did it was perhaps because of his highly cultivated attitude to serious cinema. His character and temperament were more attuned to the theory of film and a kind of intellectual square dance* which was far harder to bring to the screen with “exhilaration” than the art of Astaire and Rogers.

*See today's 11 AM ET Sermon.

"Heaven, I'm in Heaven!"

The college girl, who reportedly died at 70 on May 11, was

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 10:26 PM

See a link referencing The Gutenberg Galaxy  (a Catholic's 1962 view of literacy)
in a Log24 post yesterday suggested by a New York Times  obituary.

A different obituary this evening in that newspaper describes a Jew's 1979 view
of literacy.  See "Elizabeth Eisenstein, Historian of Movable Type, Dies at 92."

Related material — McLuhan in Eisenstein's The Printing Press as an Agent
of Change
, Cambridge University Press, 1979.

Eisenstein reportedly died on January 31, 2016. Synchronologists may
consult some media-related material reposted here on that date —

Fittingly, the Times  concludes Eisenstein's obituary as follows —

"This article will be set in 8.7 point Imperial and printed on
one of several presses, including the Goss Colorliner."

For a perhaps more interesting printing press related to change,

"By popular demand, Facebook is going beyond the ubiquitous thumbs-up button with a new shorthand to express your thoughts and feelings.

Acknowledging that 'like' isn't the right sentiment for every occasion, the giant social network is offering new options. Reactions, five emoting emojis, are rolling out to Facebook's more than 1.5 billion users around the globe starting Wednesday.

With a click of a button, you can choose from new emotions when commenting on a status update. Hold the 'like' button on mobile or hover over the like button on desktop and five animated emoji pop up. Tap on love, haha, wow, sad or angry to express your reaction. …"

Nabokov on Index Cards

I came across a recent post on Nabokov's Index Cards by Michael Leddy, which I found interesting.

Nabokov wrote with Index Cards not so much because they allowed associative progression (or because they were somehow like precursors of hypertext for him), but rather because he had such a clear vision of what he meant to create that he could start anywhere in describing it: "The pattern of the thing precedes the thing. I fill in the gaps of the crossword at any spot I happen to choose. These bits I write on index cards until the novel is done. My schedule is flexible but I am rather particular about my instruments: lined Bristol cards and well-sharpened, not too hard, pencils capped with erasers."

"… Since this entire structure, dimly illumined in one's mind, can be compared to a painting, and since you do not have to work gradually from left to right for its proper perception, I may direct my flashlight at any part or particle of the picture when setting it down in writing. I do not begin my novel at the beginning I do not reach chapter three before I reach chapter four… This is why I like writing my stories and novels on index cards, numbering them later when the whole set is complete. Every card is rewritten many times …"

"find a quiet spot (pace the booming surf and rattling wind) where to write. This I do on scrambled index cards (my text existing already there in invisible lead) which I gradually fill in and sort out, using up in the process more pencil sharpeners than pencils; but I have spoken of this in several earlier questionnaires"
