For me, all middle-brow culture already wears a huge "Kick me, I'm stupid" sign. It's yards of bare flesh in a mosquito-infested forest. It's when the middle-brow presumes to lecture its superiors that it should be beaten down mercilessly. And I'm the person to do it! And I don't really care whether you are offended by it. This blog is not *for* you. It is *against* you, if you are l'homme moyen sensuel middle-brow subject. I don't know art but I know what I like.

Go watch some "quality" television. I have to bite my tongue enough as it is in my daily life. Take your tired, insipid, earnest arguments elsewhere. Go fret about the precarious state of literature at some other blog. If you really cared about poetry you wouldn't be an insufferable bore in the first place! Didn't you ever see a citizen split in two by lightning? Sorrentino, thou shouldst be living at this hour!

This must be that "opposite of condescension" thing :)

Is this the inhalation after that last post? And does that form (the rant/litany) have a name? It needs one. How about the Mayhew?

Just getting warmed up for the big "Mayhew" to come.

You mean you don't like my Monet prints? I got them framed & everything.

I dnn't really care whether you have Monet prints or not. If you wrote an article claiming that "in the old days, everyone had framed Monet prints hanging, and look at us now--we only have big-screen tvs. It's the fault of the Art History Professors, doing all that Marxist and Deconstructionsist Theory and neglecting Truh and Beauty." Then i might have a beef.
