Trying to dig up this here quote – “Proper tribute is not noisy praise but deep silence and profound awe” (Alfred Kubin, 1917) – so as to be able to post it with a discreet tip of the hat on http://bravojuju.blogspot.com/2008/08/bravo-clippings-32.html (which I’d discovered after browsing through BJ having been led to http://bravojuju.blogspot.com/2009/07/ken-nordine-transparent-mask-2001.html by my friend LX in reply to his recommended reading & listening tip http://www.bosbos.net/2008/08/30/vintage-solid-steel-ken-nordine-talking-all-that-word-jazz-2008-edition/ …) – I then stumbled (i.e. googled) upon http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/2009/01/26/surreal-noir-something-stirring-redux/ which made me curious for an author – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Miéville – whom I suspect having chosen his pseudonym (if any) from an obsession with porcelain ceramics and the cinematics of Jean-Luc & Anne-Marie … Kafka and Kubin are fine references !
Nota Bene : I don’t like lifeblogging so the above is not how I like to operate … I’m not going to explain all of the url’s I’ll be posting. Much rather, I’ll just be dumping the links here in (chrono)logical (or idiosyncratic) order with only a few words to help you get a grasp of the series of associations … if that help were needed at all.
& maybe I’ll be relocating this post elsewhere later on, I’m still experimenting with the format(s) … I’m looking for the ideal place to post … I’m charmed by Posterous, had already been considering in WordPress, was not going to blog in MySpace … and haven’t made up my mind about tweetin’ either !
