Our milk shake brings all the Beuys to the yard

"It will be Joseph Beuys' 90th birthday in a few weeks' time," I remarked this afternoon at the Old Entomologist while we sampled the new season's "Ascension (and that's all they said)" Maibock (99% ergot-free!). "Time to decide whether to attend the party."

"I imagine we can make our presents felt," Another Kiwi vouchsafed.

Knowing jack-shit about this guy, I'm going to preemptively say I use my milkshake exclusively for bringing only the 70 and under crowd to the yard.

In an age of social media and web 2.0 the concept of social sculpture acquires new resonances even Wikipedia may be regarded as a social sculpture in the Beuysian sense. The revolutionary concept, "Everyone is a writer of an encyclopedia" is near what Beuys meant by "Everyone is an artist".

It's a near what St Joseph of Queens meant by "Everyone's a secret nerd, everyone's a closet lame"

Perhaps we should install an on-line poll widget so that people can indicate whether or not they'll be back.

...I know whether or not I'll be back, but I'm not about to tell you.

Smut Clyde said...

Ckc (not kc) is evidently a superposed quantum state who shall be back and sha'n't be back simultaneously (until the quantum state is collapsed by an act of observation).

Oh, I'll be back.

But I'll be coming from the OTHER direction.

Schrödinger's Ckcat?
