We grow accustomed to the dark
When light is put away
As when the neighbor holds the lamp
To witness her good bye.

This "WHO TOOK THE BOMP?" blog may be referring to that feminist electronic band Le Tigre, their film and their international tour across four continents ten countries and then finalizing on Jane Public's apartment living room floor. Supported by a community of devoted fans (and not money hungry bottom-feeding lawyers feeding off the hands of trust fund baby unemployed losers who love flushing money down their rich parents toilets) and led by outspoken Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (ummm, Bikini Kill!), Le Tigre confronts global social injustice and issues regarding the greedy corporate music industry while owning the stage via performance art, no-holds-barred lyrics, punk rock ethos and whip-smart wit in this edgy and entertaining doc film thats now up on FANDOR. Jane loves you Kathleen, who knows Jane very well. Duh. Remember Brooklyn? Diamanda Galas who? Listen, the more things change, the more they stay the same. DIY is a choice. DIY is a way of life. The Lesson here is: One step forward - five steps back (we will call that the contemplating period). And so now, soon, the (i.e. MY) great fun begins. PRO SE =PUNK ROCK, fools. This is gonna be fun. All over again. And Jane will be making sure of that. Once bitten, never shy. And if someone is hungry when Jane is through with them, there will be cake. So, "Let them eat cake." Plenty of it.

'Your performance art work reminded me of the work of artist Jack Smith,' Jane was told tonight.
'Thank you' replied Jane.
'No problem. Hey yo, can I get your email ?' was heard.
'Just go to my website,' Jane retarted (typo) retorted.
'Ok, bye. Nice to meet you.' (unknown)
'Bye,' Jane quipped. then split. the venue.

Watchin' , 'Lincoln.' Again. Such a great film. Such a great political mind. Such a terrible tall hat.
The Cooper Union Address, the Second Inaugural Address, and "A House Divided" speech of 1858 each indicates in its particular way how Lincoln saw the institution of enslavement as a national rather than a sectional problem, and especially so, since the institution had the sanction of the law of the whole land.
In this slow moving film one is immediately arrested not only by incredibly pure set design and wood creaking, but by Lincoln's speeches and their political and philosophical depth. Lincoln's views on the American polity and how they compared to those of Jefferson, Madison, and other founders of the nation were unprecedented.
Lincoln repeatedly claims throughout his public life that his views on the American polity, especially regarding enslavement and government legislation over U.S. territories, was consistent with the views of the founders. One task for thinking is to show the ways in which his views harmonize with those of Madison and Jefferson; another task is to show how Lincoln's views differ from those of John C. Calhoun, a fierce proponent of slavery and states' rights. Lincoln's political thought is always emerging in the context of quarrels about what the Constitution really means and what the founding really was about, not abstractly, but in the context of living and concrete political situations.
In framing his argument against slavery in his speeches (and in this great film), Lincoln revisits again and again his understanding of the intentions of the founders. Lincoln is interesting because he argues that slavery is wrong not just by his own reasonable moral lights, but also by his American lights. Lincoln is also a great believer in the law, and he saw that the institution of slavery in the Southern states was legal. His strategic solution was to show that the founders were not willing to allow slavery to spread and that by keeping it in the South, it would be kept on 'the course of its final extinction.'
hear ye. hear ye. bye.

Psychoanalytic theory, with a subtle application of 'Free Association' technique (hypnosis is for the birds) has become the considerable crooked staple in Jane Public's current directorial interests. Thanks Siggy aka Freudy. Resolving intrapsychic conflict on a 1080dpi interlaced battery operated machine between fabricated faux scenarios has become quite the norm for you (i.e. moi) these days. So, enough blabbing, thanks Josef Breuer for your talking cure, and ready, set, actors in place ? (if you wanna call them actors) , ACTION! bye.

Pete Seeger at Carnegie Hall with the Woody Guthrie Family! Arlo (Woody's son, duh) led the night of songs of protest against social injustice while inserting his halarious satirical style of sardonic talking blues. The whole show was custom built for our modern times. Every politician (and every post 60's contemporary war veteran) shoulda been here tonight. And they shoulda been handed a copy of the new book written by MIT professor Craig Steven Wilder, "Ebony and Ivy" (purchasing link: http://www.amazon.com/Ebony-Ivy-Troubled-Americas-Universities/dp/1596916818/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1385926063&sr=8-1&keywords=ebony+and+ivy) and united to boycott William And Mary College based on its despicable and disgusting history once and for all. Peaceful protests based on facts, history and data statistics for all. bye!
...and yes, this show was Sold Out.
p.s. R.I.P. Paul Walker. Glad I wasn't riding shotgun. Your car looks terrible. Sad man. Life is Crazy. I imagine "fast and furious" Christmas DVD sales will skyrocket for you now. peace to you. bye to You. You're in my thoughts.
