Listthis cussing J Joyce´s woikej-joyce and Fwake list (post) exchanges******* First, some forethought: Slice and splice 2 time different time frames of the exact same location, angle, distance, magnitude and shutter speed together to get startlingly beautiful  pictures.   Weather and time of day, let alone tree composition, transform any place enough to be amused for a life time.   Slowliness is nicer than loneliness.   Everybody is a collective achievement.

subject: jewel of a jewish dualism: piggybanks vs pork; I here present the backflap of a richly illustrated book called: "museum of money" (1978, in german): from the offering ritual to trading society from labyrinth to stockmarket from altar to bankteller from kaurishell to credti card from chambered tombs to vaulted safes from slaughterfeast to piggy bank from the big mother to the emancipation of the female from the cave to the museum from the fetish to the work of art         To help understanding this paradox I would like to know if figures exist to illustrate Jewish involvement with pigs some way or another.  jewelish dew follow up:Hope this doesn't transgress the thematics too much. I know precious little about my butcher background other than that my gramps, dad, 2 oncles and most of their sons (many) became one, I started and broke off the only Dutch National daily Butcher School(ing) in the second (apprentice year) during which I went to the uncle of the girl I had a true and very long, from a distance crush on (I did ask her to the movies once but she laughed her bewitching laugh instead); he lived on the dike from where, looking one way, one saw the famous 19 or so windmills scattered between the 'boesems' literally bossoms but meaning good size waterways, reedswamps and shallow reservoirs, great for skating and when the ice was clear one could wake frogs jumping on it; looking the other way was the big canal crossing the delta with the heavy duty shipswarfs where all folks smoked heavy tobacco and the kids of my generation got into heavier drugs than good for them. Anyway, this butchermaster with butcher sons of his own taught me how to slaughter some piggies, much much earlier I had cleaned stables on saturday mornings for some that had a good wallow territory in summer. I got stung by a wasp once and carried him outside. From that moment on my master resignedly despaired about making me a good butcher; I went on into and through a protesting vegetarian period, even into a spate of veganistic raw food faddening but came back down to having some piggy meat every now and then. My parents don't eat the stuff. But we customers of the weekly A'dam organic produce market had, until very recently, pigmeat on offer from videostarred piglets. They were shown roaming a vast territory, semi wildlife right on the market stand; of course they were featured in a transformed state of being as well, hanging from a wooden multilimbed, peeled, scoured, sockeled varnished and polished tree. Food from trees is the best.Always wondered if my last name could have been derived from the french Boucher. Can yall E-quip about abit to offset this boring faux pas?

FWAKE list stuff eclected Commentary on ´finnegans wake´ spliced with confessions from the lives of their readers
This is the conclusion to a longish rant originally written and sent to the warriornet list. This intro is tailormade for and tacked on to the fwake list:  seems like this theme doesn't want to (knock itself out on) rockbottom out. Here is something to see if I can get that Pound renderer to come up with a different ascspression to impress me with:  factors, friction and fun when ovoid orifices are scratching headlines bald and bolder fff (factors, friction and fun) tack on (a lot more of this thread is to be found in one of the 4 warriornet list post files) From the wasted waves of sperms fired and shot rise but few who's lot include a decent plot worship that one and only in a million and use the rest for one thas been said that women's highly private mores  wouldn't be up to any cross the board humanitarian chores but I wonder who's setting her limits.                A cross post from the warriornet: Starlings are beautiful, arrogant and noisy; they astound locals as confident though newly arrived, admirably industrious citizens (I seen that in Australia, Amsterdam, NY...I wonder who, if it wasn't a jew set the tone there and why that and personal freedom are the things I like about 'm).     Yet, I wonder even more if they are worth the sacrifices and serfdom for the sunless at the bottom of this hyrarchy, stripped of heritage, turf and dignity, the squeezes in place and the setter - upper - setter - jetters gone to conquer new colonies to be turned into 'hinterlands even faster this time if possible. The mythical and choice (not mine though) few from amongst the chosen ones think it good sport praps; J L Talmon calls it the neurosis of choice. David Gates is a jewish joke(r). Whether messianically philanthropic or monopolistically marxist, the  infective/popularity rates are ineradicably high and hard to pin down it seems. Tis easy to condemn facts and turn around to direct the stare into egoswelling freedom.               Violence is the best trendbend/bent mender cause it has the intensity of the cutting edge between life and death and that is attractive, so there is money in it either way one dresses the thing up and out; bloodshed and exploitation or purity, fresh innocence and provision. Instilling capitalist flavors of schizophrenia is the ongoing bet it seems. I recently came across another to me unknown hyposthesis about what may have happened for the quiptians and dews to fall out and apart so lastingly. This Jones (writing in "Ethics")said that sacrifice was always concerned with dispatching the culturally inadequate, worn out and past sell/show by date (he claims it could have got started as hunters ganging up on veggies). Egyptians, marxists, technocrats, one and all seem very human till you trace the touch of jewish text and tutorship, with or without live rendition, or even lively renderer sent 'm into a star gazing craze (Bauval) while losing the cornucopious rug from under them. As I said before, very instructive in this respect also is Silvio Gesell's opinion of Moses (playing conjuror/chemist/magician with the ashes of the sacrifices) and Joseph (disowning landlord/hoarder).  You think an embeddedly selfsufficient peasant would give up his greenery to go heave rocks on top of each other voluntarily?). Sorry for repeating myself but I am reading a book called: Ezra Pound and Italian Fascism now; he was a Gesell reader for a while also. I was led to become one by R A Wilson 15 years ago.

to jorn@mcs.com (http://www.robotwisdom.com) Date: Fri, 08 Jan 1999 10:59:43 -0000: hi, I dreamt about visiting you and being shown a large archive 'on hold' about my pet theme: use (metabolization) of rockdust. Culprit Stan Tenen to whom I had tried to send what you see below had a courtcase the outcome of which you were going to wait for. There is a nicely (i think) colourful way to see it at: almost a month later: hi, this maybe the first time I manage to get mail to you though I tried since at least a year ago. Haven't had failure notices but probably used old adress before. So, I once again hopefully submit a link to my site:   to you. My affinities with you are growing nicely; I have you to thank for starting me on Thomas Pynchon's books and found you through following Joyce links about whom I write regularly since going to Auzzie land in 96-7 and tackling him in Brisbane. More than that even did I like your rainbow reports last summer. Hope to make the Penn one meself.   Last but not least: my site is worth your while since you are a colour freak though you erased your samples before I ever got to see them apparantly. Send some over if you like. Well, see you    piet      PS: why have you no link at www.welcomehome.org? They have my first reciprocal in the Rainbow Folk section

on encryption: And it was written: Just to say what a wonderful example this is of some of the myriad ways Joyce plays with letters, writing, and sounds.        Well, let's all make believe he wasn't into a deadly game of encryption, obscurity and legitimation of the import given to symbols which is the gateway to gambling and usury. Not to mention the angels and devils invokabbal when combining and divining the frequency signature of a given moment from ingredients of which this post has the following examples: semi-voiceless and sometimes bilabial instead of labiodental, and perhaps closer to the palatalized sound for English (or at least my dialiect of American) speakers than a real  _v_ (voiced and labio-dental) would be.  . . . and so to an unspelled but lurking reading of  'sweet'    'Sweet, O slave'    a repeated theme.   So that the reading of Svyatoslav is in fact a beautiful sound game or music that Joyce has created.   Hosannah in the highest. Well, Keyserling had this game going where he systematized all the soundsources, assigning them a resonance with one of the Jungian 7 ingredients which make up his wheel each. Then he invites you to formulate/compose and then pronounce/sing your  medicine wheel.   A pretty pic of it somewhere in there.  If that URL doesn't work try this one: Keyserling   Encryption is the alienating manifestion of these times. We had plain old distance and language barriers to do the job earlier on. Now digital and pompously pedantic impressiveness does us the glamorous honour of carrying on with the new and improved episode.              A lot of Joyce is just not funny nor deadly serious in a difference making way, no matter how well you understand the associative safety net.                He had a prescription fobia; busy keeping up appearances. He must have believed and approved of slave society, going to a restaurant as often as possible. Take a look at New York and how many slave labour subjects keep the wealthy few happy....no improvements since the pyramids. Conditions worsened; wisdom aged.

 Re: Yeats quote: "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." I aint scared enough not to post a ref to widen your interests to those around Yeats and understand some of what made the english depict the Celts as monkeys even though not much reference to that or to overseas colonies further than the irish one is made in the book: "The imagination of an insurrection, Dublin, easter 1916" by William Irwin Thompson, cultural historian. I was inspired to read it after a few confrontations with Louis Proyect, who is engaged in throwing lights on indiginous plights from a Marxist perspective.    That good man managed to instigate having me throw off the warriornet list,his own and the progressive economist list. some of these altercations plus the last 7 pages of the book mentioned can be found at my site starting in: recent_postings

regarding arbuties/our beauties/arguties (puns and witticisms in French): --storal of the mory: when you clink the case is thosed, the cest is yet to bome.

     Subject:Message to limbo (Ross)  Dearest Ross,  Just curious if anyone was home. During vacation breaks when all the students have left town, I sometimes moved to go bowling on Main Street. Similarly, when this micophone goes dead I occasionally feel the urge to sing into it and listen for echos. Now to you questions,  You wrote:Now Shamus, what does this mean?  << potential rushtie leakages>>  S: I recently pulled the radiator from the '50 Chevy pickup truck that I am playing at restoring. The truck and I were both on the assembly line at the same time and I am quickly discovering it to be my doppleganger. So rust is on my mind. Rust made me think of blood as they both contain irony. Blood led to thoughts of sacrifice as a premiere method for  establishing and maintaining order and of how tolerance for the excluded weakens the moral fibre that keeps the community united and is, therefore, a potential danger. As Plato pointed out there is no place for poets at the sacrifice, the songs they sing might leak ambiguous emotions into the sacrificial scene that could cause sympathy for the scapegoat or worse yet, make things appear humorous. And that got me thinking about Salmon, the fish, Rushdie who became a scapegoat for what I think were similar reasons and that caused me to imagine the unseen faces of some self appointed list police as ayatollah-like phantoms and that tickled me to write that line.
<<What are you, an English teacher!>> S. I couldn't think of anything more horrify at the time as a substitute for one of those "----" off type words.  S. Too bad about your daughter. Any chance with the blank check? Some girls just want to have fun,               Shamus

One of his more remarkable feats must be to relate the enneagram with grammatical categories in such a way that singular and plural such as a noun is capable of gets assigned number two etc through all nine of them.

I don't think ball bulletist is a person although there are prominent Irish with a last name of Ball: John Ball (1818-89) alpinist, born in D and 1st president of the Alpine club, author of books on Alpine climbing and botany(Morocco & South America)  Sir Robert Stawell Ball (1840-1913) astronomer, born in D and studied at Trinity. He contributed to the theory of screws and published much on astronomy and mechanics. An astromomer and a physicist seem a natural pair but my reaction to this suggests that the meaning which is uppermost is more about artillery than astronomy. Bulletist contains the word bullet and ball is appropriate to the earlier period of ballistics. As to the more interesting question of what constitutes an acceptable level of meaning, this goes off into a bewildering number of directions, ballistic as it were.          J aspired to write the universal book with something for everybody. His book, however, contains such an abundance of somethings and they are all there in such a splendid tangle that the Wake tends to be a book for very few. For those very few the book is richly varied and some of us will care very little for any meaning although we will never turn away from it. The business of meaning, however, is a secondary affair to reveling in the book's magical qualities.

Pot smokers and pill poppers do not care for most of the kind of books I gathered. I hope I will find a nice rural intentional community this year to donate them to. Another author van Gennep carried overstocks of is Guy Gavriel Kay; finding him there a few times made me many a day.     He writes fantasy; middle age sceneries with a magic flavor. His latest had the most historic strands of all his books to date. It deals with the clashes and mingles of Teuton/Frank, Celt, Arab and Jew in Spain. All his earlier ones are as unplacable as Tolkien whose  posthumously published works he helped collate.
