Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Frank O'Hara and James Carter: Jouissance by Ira Sadoff:


Excellent column that moves like a sax solo from FOH to French critical theory to the "chops" of James Carter before returning, in the closing bars, to O'Hara and jouissance while including Papa Hem as a grace note. I love "mockifesto" as a term for "Personism." Your use of jouissance in this context is nice. As I understand the term, it was coined by Jacques Lacan in the late 1950s and discussions addressed orgasms more frontally than anything other than Wilhelm Reich on the one hand and pornography on the other. -- DL

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

by T.P.Winch

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