You want what I got?
It’s difficult to write alone. Thinking alone, living alone, walking alone, talking alone all are tolerable in solitude, even isolation from others. I’m not addressing Solitude. In many ways, less alienation results. I get the longing for retreat and a hermitage. I long for it. Writing alone is altogether another matter. And I’m not thinking about my imagined readers. I’m...
I Want You to Want Me
tiring of people who invite others to discourse only to insist the conversation reflect their sense of order, understanding of rhetoric, and knowledge of any given situation. i crave narrative—but without insistent, vertical sign posts authorizing direction.

Rain Rain Go Away
Just saying: since June 22, Korea has received approximately 87% of the anticipated annual perception. And quite a bit of that has fallen in the last 48 hours. Floods, sewage, power outages, landslides, crippled public transportions, and drownings are as expected. What’s different in Seoul (than the expected list of tragedies and incidences in the wake of a massive storm,) is that millions...
Meanwhile, down the street, Dorimcheon swells.
So, this is what the last week of the rainy season looks like this year. Crazy storm hit yesterday and is still raging. It reportedly rained over 70mm, around 3 inches, during a two-hour storm late yesterday afternoon. We were stuck in Hyehwa waiting for the rain to stop enough for us to ride the scooter home. But yesterday’s sudden downpour is nothing compared to the early morning...

Baseball Movies & Goodbye Jejudo
Walked and rode all over the southern half of Jejudo for a week and now playing a Canadian National Baseball team member in the opening scene of a Korean film. Korea had a perfect game against the Canadians in 1981 and the game features as the emotional keystone for the film’s story. Back to teaching and blogging soon, though I’m already missing the scooter, the coastal roads and...
In Jejudo for a week: Future Slow Tumblr Action.
자주도 서귀포에 가고싶어: 대포 주상절리, 정방 폭포, 천제연 폭포, 천지연 폭포 우도 하도새에 가고 싶어. That’s the want-to-see stuff, but we’ll likely wander around peacefully like we always do and see what comes up. It’s the rainy season right now, so we’ll see: maybe we’ll be able to hike in Hallasan National Park. It’s going to be fun and relaxing whatever happens. Just nice to see Korea outside of Seoul. We’ve lived in Korea for...

I uploaded Part One several days ago. Here’s the massive, Part Two. Torrent available on Demonoid. From the torrent description: Here’s part two of a three-part series of torrents on some of the best 1980s hardcore albums. The first torrents included albums from the first half of Pushead’s famous top 80s hardcore records list that he published in the March 1990 issue...

radmax: I’m not sure how I could twist anything you said when you are so great at clearly writing out what you think. You said it was conservatives and liberals bickering over Libya which is false: This is bickering between Democrat and Republican politicians who, again, don’t speak for all liberals and conservatives (or even all Democrat and Republican voters**). You claim that no one is...
dagNotes: Who's Read This?
Arthur Kroker and David Cook. The Postmodern Scene: Excremental Culture and Hyper Aesthetics. St Martin’s, 1986. Looking for thoughts about this book. It’s from the 80s, and the intro reads like somebody doing a Cocaine-frenzied Deleuze impersonation having just read Bataille’s Vision of Excess and Nietzsche’s aphoristic trilogy. I know the 80s were all Baudrillard and...

[sorry for not including this when I first posted.] Radmax replied: You’re interchanging the meanings to a lot of words here. Liberalism isn’t defined by partisan lines in the sand. Democrats don’t always speak for real liberal ideals. If they did, the healthcare reform voting would have gone a lot differently. I’m not interchanging anything. IMO, Liberalism is for chumps.

radmax: dagseoul: Yes. But “Liberals” aren’t cool. They’re as much a part of the problem as douchebag American Libertarians. Care to elaborate? Sure. It’s very simple: liberals are not capable of changing the status quo. I’d go so far as to say, liberals are not capable of even simple transgressive acts. The status quo is for liberals what it is for conservatives. It is nothing...
