robespierre, saint-just and couthon and i think to truly go to the place of terror one would have to abandon all historical principle and acknowledge that the guillotine
was actually invented in ireland....

as for the pleasure principle...isn't there something to be said for the A train by ellington?

and actually, the words of the disgruntled student were, "his theory is a waste of time"...some have even attributed it to jung who was commenting on freud's having spent weeks dissecting eels in an unsuccessful search for their sex organs (the eels that is)...

...and after the eel incident, there was talk that freud was writing a treatise on bird abuse...unfortunately all of those writings have been lost to time...

Bill is right, as usual, and I'm all for the Duke and his theme song, the thought of which makes the shoving in a crowded train even at rush hour more bearable.
But how about Rilke? "Beauty is the beginning of terror that we can barely endure and why we love it is that it so serenely disdains to destroy us."
The guillotine at the Place de la Concorde was the perfect execution for the romantic era. DL

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
