Phenomenology, Tie Dye

Am interested in this poem and this poem from Tao Lin's this emotion was a little ebook.


The tickets to Miami of Ohio have just been booked! You cannot imagine how complicated it was. But we are going! Hooray!

I'm going to make one big poem or lots of poems together about texture and the experience of texture. Somehow it's not going to be about material and objects or materiality. Well, it will, but I'm not going to obsess very specifically about history or "the Body." Well, I will, but in some other interesting way. Say, how 'bout I get all phenomenological!?
  • I guess it's time to read Spring and All again. This time with some actual focus.
  • I guess it's time to read about group psychotherapy. I didn't like group therapy. I feel my own alienation and that of other people too much as it is.
  • I guess it's time to read some Elizabeth Grosz.

I'm going to get my little sisters a tie dye kit for their birthdays. If anyone would like to get me a tie dye kit and some of these shirts in a size M, that would be ok with me. But I'll probably get those myself, eventually, and then you'll all get lots of tie dye gifts from me. Tie dye is cool.

Ok, I'm going to go back to being cool now, and to typesetting.

although, nonni is a little upset about the references to mass-murdering hamsters.
