the songs you've sung on a braver day

Salutations, comrades.

This is the blog of a mobile fungus colony.

Expect for there to be a focus upon the culture, arts and history of the 20th century.

Irwin:

'if any question why we died,

Tell them because our fathers lied.'

In other words...

Timms:

Oh no sir. With respect, can I stop you? No, with a poem or any work of art we can never say 'in other words.' If it is a work of art there are no other words.

Lockwood:

Yes, Sir. That's why it is a work of art in the first place.

You can't look at a Rembrandt and say 'in other words', can you, Sir?

“Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.””

Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.

He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.

The Dancing Lesson. James Abbott McNeill Whistler (American, 1834–1903). Oil on canvas. Museums Sheffield.
Whistler emphasized strong silhouettes, elegant contours, and beautiful surface patterns. The placement of the figures in relation to the edges of the canvas was carefully calculated. He was skilled with delicate variations on neighboring or contrasting hues.
