Panography Thread with a circa 2001 Nix ITT

http://www.mythogeography.com/panography.html

so what are we reading now days?

nix with her classics I'll maybe read one day but hope she has moved on
mist with Russian classics all pretentious
and I still need to read Matt's favorite...
i forget the title but was a magical realism story

I had it linked on old phone or pc or somewhere I'll get to it but recommend Bless Me Ultima by Anaya and Post-Modern Magic by Dunn.

and Stories that must not Die by Sauvageau

can anyone buy me one of these books on the list lol i want em all but ya wont read I skim

so now I will begin my friendship with the land again...run cycle walk (combined at times by porting bike over pedestrian unfriendly places). The land will be read.

I have a few psychogeographic maps I need to follow when it is right, sneaking into places be they abandoned, public, or your back yard. I read those too.

But flanneurism is my next goal in life so who needs books to do it, right?

[*]Oh yeah
You'll have power, fame, all in your name
All that you want, all that you need
Everything that you ever could read
Anything anything that you ever would need
Well sign the paper that's all you do
Sign the paper it's ready too
Anything there it's all for you
Well this is all you got to do....

@nix

love historical and even current events that are novelized.

Yet, I am skeptical of N Korea being a hermit state or as bad as our Western press and governments claim. BRICs and the global south have no issues with them and they have many embassies.

So I offer two quotes as recompense for gracing us with your lovely presence.

"Journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers is another."

&

"Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity."

--KC*SG


@marcus

This is that thread. Your first instinct is right again but we all know you actually have more womanly intuition. Your beard fools none.


The following is a short essay entitled Marcus: Man vs Myth (or The Frivolities of the Administration's War on Porn in the Territories of Novo-IRC commonly called Discord).


I. Porno Corno

But on topic, porn, ya fagus and bung is fully represented here.

For we are all book whores here and there are many types of books. And pornos is etymologically derived from the word whore (prostitute). See below for source and the 13 types of books given there.

https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/book

Or scroll down here for 36 types:

http://www.translate-latin.com/en/dicti ... latin/book

As for the Latin fagus (from beech tree) and Albanian bung (oak chestnut), both led to our modern word "book".

For the trivia-minded here is this:

The name of the tree (Latin fagus, whence the species name; cognate with English "beech") is of Indo-European origin, and played an important role in early debates on the geographical origins of the Indo-European people. Greek φηγός is from the same root, but the word was transferred to the oak tree (e.g. Iliad 16.767) as a result of the absence of beech trees in Greece.



II. Porno Retorno

For the hypercarnal-minded, that means you @Marcus, I offer the deity Liber aka Bacchus aka Dionysus.

This is your archtype according to the Jungian concept of collective unconscious.

Legend: *character description
×¥ followers
~~~even your patronage of people like me (pagans in urbanus).


*The earliest cult images of Dionysus show a mature male, bearded and robed. He holds a fennel staff, tipped with a pine-cone and known as a thyrsus. Later images show him as a beardless, sensuous, naked or half-naked androgynous youth: the literature describes him as womanly or "man-womanish".[13] In its fully developed form, his central cult imagery shows his triumphant, disorderly arrival or return, as if from some place beyond the borders of the known and civilized.

×¥ His procession (thiasus) is made up of wild female followers (maenads) and bearded satyrs with erect penises; some are armed with the thyrsus, some dance or play music. The god himself is drawn in a chariot, usually by exotic beasts such as lions or tigers, and is sometimes attended by a bearded, drunken Silenus. This procession is presumed to be the cult model for the followers of his Dionysian Mysteries.

~~~ Dionysus is represented by city religions as the protector of those who do not belong to conventional society and he thus symbolizes the chaotic, dangerous and unexpected, everything which escapes human reason and which can only be attributed to the unforeseeable action of the gods.


via wiki article on Dionysus

We also learn that Dionysus is also titled as "the god who comes"...

As well as being a "dying-and-rising-god" and by my liberal and dubious use of double entendre represents the male refractory period euphemised as the second nut, or third, fifth, and eighth nuts. Rise and fall again my friends.


III. Porno Messogiorno: The Indo-Phyrgo-Thraco-Attican-Disxordian Complex

According to the wiki article, "Discord has had problems with hostile behaviour and abuse within chats, with some communities of chat servers being 'raided' by other communities. This includes flooding with controversial topics related to race, religion, politics and pornography."


Censorship concerns are noted with the addition of the historical footnote of Carlin's Seven Dirty Words.

How many are OK now for the sake of the children and the family-friendly standards of our community?

The standards are fine and worthy of upholding but the Internet and Miley Cyrus videos have underminded innocence and sacrificed our children. So as guardians, parents, uncles and aunts we must keep vigilance via our various methods of garden-walling their internet. For me it is no social media, kid's youtube only, and no Miley Cyrus.

With that caveat plus declaration of loyalty to our community complete, I will continue the essay with portions of Bryan Menegus' Gizmodo article:

https://gizmodo.com/how-a-video-game-ch ... 1792039566

Then finish with additional information regarding the Spirit of the Bacchanallia and Elusenian Mysteries lives on to this age and place.

I will illustrate how the Cult and Mysteries were considerd a threat to Rome, and as imagined as that was, so was our hyper-vigilicance against porn.

To be continued...

Not quite classical reading; but I enjoyed Jack Vance - Demon Princes :)

Sci-Fi from the 60-70s is classical and he draws from the so called "classics" too.

His inclusion of Saper's "linguistic drift" is not but near enough my passion for semiotics which explains the change of language and symbols and signs.

When the signifier becomes the signified our language and reality weakens leading us into hyperreality.

With etmology is now have three tools to consider for deconstruction. Thanks for turninge on to Saper.

And the wiki of the series reads well and I will get book one.

I wish Barnes & Nobles carried a hard copy for sell, nook schmook.

I have a gift card from April I need to use. Half will be spent on The Bhagavad Gita (Song of the Lord) as translated by Stephen Mitchell has helped me change false perspectives, especially that none can promise love forever.

Twice I checked it out from our library system.

Currently I also have on loan the graphic novels, The Enchantment by Christian Durieux and tranlsated from French.

Image

And the Fountain by Darren Aronofsky. Maybe I will sit through the film as my sister recommended it before she succumbed to the disease of suicide two years past. We had her longer than we should have and she was a blessing.

Aronofsky's Reqiuem for a Dream and Black Swan are awesome AF.

That ending sex scene with Jennifer Connely in a Requiem for a Dream is also so hot even if I should empathize as the whole film and that is tragic. But omg and that fills the requirement for porn.

Now three more ready for pick up and one is on psychogeography.

I love books, my truest friends since childhood, but I am out now for even truer folk friends.

I also like to read articles galore plus website pages and even your secret diary...nah, I meant blogs.

In all seriousness now give us good article links and excerpts.

Overboard as usual I offer the whole post of a blog for I find it so valuable and reread from time to time.


[b]Sidewalk Contemplation[/b]

One way to read Mythogeography is as a primer for a spatialised way of thinking, for an intellectual-spiritual discipline, a form of embodied contemplation for the ambulatory soul.

All of the following are mental exercises for honing a mobile decentred (selfless) self, the ambulatory and embodied soul of a Walker.

[*]Putting one foot in front of the other is a good way of tripping over – so learning how to place things (including oneself) to the side of other things is the start for a more general thinking “to the side” of things.

[Misfit with a devil lock notes: Ariana Grande got me walking side to side]

Image

[*]Learning how to be an unexceptional part of the multiplicity of optic flows is a discipline to be practised in high streets. It requires de-focusing from commodities in shop windows or on inward concerns. It means forefronting your existing capacity for reducing the multiple informations of the crowded street to simple, necessary affordances of slope, swirl, surface, obstacle, eddy, angle, etcetera. But now you deploy them knowingly as you weave a way through the crowds, leaving something of the pattern you make with each passer-by. (Check de Certeau’s chapter on Walking in the City in The Practice of Everyday Life for an inflated account of this production of the city.

[*]Camouflage is about as much of an identity as is necessary in the city, but there is also a mythic-ethic aspect: hold yourself in preparedness. A glove or toy dropped from a buggy. A fallen pedestrian. A major accident. An assault. Depending on what mythic character you have developed and to whatever layers of mastery of compassion and anger you have ascended, hold yourself always ready to accept whatever are affordances for you. As with the leaving of patterns, what you leave is not an act of heroism or random kindness, but a frayed edge of a pattern of heroines and heroes.

[*]Alone, walk the street or the hillpath or the beach into yourself. This is not a simple self-negation, it is not an opportunity to empty psychic filth onto the world. This is a geographical act, raising and reforming memories, feelings, self-images and setting them at the mercies of the far vistas, of the straightness of the path, of the massing of the flocks. Allow all those inner things nattering in heart and head to be softly contoured by the dale, torn apart by corvine parliaments, bordered by barbed wire fences, monumentalised by the faces of mountains and cliffs.

[*]The mythogeographical Walker will eventually (or quickly) learn to wander with an inner geography, a psychic tent filled with story-maps, and an ever shifting companion – sometimes a shadow of themselves (a ghost of what they were), sometimes a shadow of the invisible college of Walkers (a frayed edge that is never resolved into either fiction or organisation), sometimes a quiet and powerful crowd, sometimes a shadow of a possible encounter.
