From a search for Limerick in this journal —

"C A V E S  is an exhibition of three large scale works,
each designed to immerse the viewer, and then to
confront the audience with a question regarding how far
they, as privileged viewers of the shadows and reflections
being played out upon the walls, are willing to allow
themselves to believe what they know to be a false reality."

A college girl's remarks in the previous post suggested
a search in this journal for "vulgar and stupid."
That search yielded date — March 2, 2014.

In the spirit of the Church of Synchronology, a further search —
for that date — yielded, in a March 2, 2014, post, the following —

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
Katherine Dunn, author of the book One Ring Circus  quoted
above. She apparently improved with age.

Yeah, Art, Beauty

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 11:17 PM

From a New York Times  obituary this evening —

"She entered Reed College in Portland as a philosophy major.

'I enjoyed it until I ran aground in an aesthetics class,' 
Ms. Dunn told Wired  magazine. 'I went in thinking, yeah,
art, beauty — my meat, drink and air. But on the first day,
I didn’t understand a word that was said in class, so I
marched out and changed my major to psychology.' "

Could have marched out and bought a dictionary .
