« This Just In . . . Bill Hayward in Psychology Tomorrow Magazine Issue 2 | Main | Blue and Sentimental [by Ira Sadoff] »

September 26, 2012


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

on when I
left the house

of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
