Emily - perhaps, re. MES, wit, charisma - of a certain kind, that either appeals or does not appeal? Interestingly, Emily, CJ, Mark E. Smith has been invoked but was not mentioned - squarely, that is - in the picture's blather footer. It was a Marx E. Smith; maybe a more reasonable, Lefist brother. A philogical conflation, a mish-mash... at best. Maybe a typo-born conjure. He's better looking, though not as culturally successful. Where's the justice in that?

witcharisma??

a new kind of wealth, surely..... appeals to me.

i was joking (obviously, i thought).

yeah, but MES is/could be, either of them, or waltzes between them.

as for justice... is cultural success desirable? not sure. question remains open. in what/whose terms? leftist philologist needed.

Like the idea of a waltzing Mark E. Smith.

Moot points, yes: cultural success; whose terms. But then - thorny one though it be - we have all benefitted have we not from exposure to one or two culturally-successful people? Personally, I'm as fucked off with and uninterested in the so-called mainstream as the next blogging artist. I pursue nothing there, to boot. But there are good things that bubble up. Similarly thorny ... where does onedraw the line between alterity and the middle-ground? These days, I'm seldom arsed to attempt that move. It is so imploded and contaminated. Purity, or any kind of meaningfully discreet project, is all but impractical, impossible, I feel. I just try to keep it all moral and as meaningful as I can.
