Read this on my phone off georgetownedu while also watching Beverly Hills 90210 the one where Steve gets detention and sits on a cupcake and then gets sucked into the world of drag racing on the streets of Beverly Hills 90210 A nice night here they were calling for five inches of snow but it’s too warm and we are just getting rain I didn’t want to go to work tomorrow and thought I’d get off because of the snow but it looks like we’re not getting any My wife is snoring gently here in bed and I’m still thinking about something Susan Sontag said about Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls how she remarked on it as being laughably bad because it’s so intellectually narrow while also so troublingly serious there being no room for fantasy within the work and from there no room for fantasy in the mind of the reader She’s wise there and wise all over the place in this happy car crash of a think piece Maybe I’ll call out sick Andrea has a big problem in that episode too she has been seeing a hypnotherapist for two months hoping to learn the identity of a person in a silver truck who nearly ran her over At the drag race she must confront the devil themself Brenda and Kelly go on a blind date with two college boys from Princeton NJ and Donna cuts her teeth on being the school DJ I wonder what my wife is dreaming I hope it’s a dream of great relief Her mother got two tumors cut out of her lungs just a few days ago by a robot And wait somehow the snow is sticking at least to the cars Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and society will still be intact and I still won’t have to make anyone money Susan Sontag says Oscar Wilde says Life is too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it I hope they’re right

Notes on CampOte to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Stevie Smith essays radical and inspiring poems moving and disturbing stories surreal and fabulous taking us from the deep South to modern Japan New York's underground scene to the farthest reaches of outerspac. I accidentally picked up this book at the library mainly because I've read two essays by Sontag and loved them ; and it was for 4dt I had no idea what 'Camp' is and I was delighted when reading these 'jottings' as the author put it I love diving into new entities especially that lately I've been reading a lot about aesthetics and artifice However I was disappointed with a chunk of the essay when Sontag clearly took a general and stereotypical approach towards jews and homosexualsFor instance she writes that Camp taste is homosexual taste and that homosexuals have pinned their integration into society on promoting the aesthetic sense I find it demeaning to reduce a group of people to the cheesiest stereotype there isThat was the first essay Notes on 'Camp' The second one One Culture and the New Sensibility was a less enjoyable read although as interesting as the other It mainly focuses on 'literary artistic culture' as opposed to 'scientific culture' ; 'high' and 'low' 'mass' or 'popular' culture The author offers uite an interesting take on the matter Camp is a certain mode of aestheticism It is one way of seeing the world as an aesthetic phenomenon That way the way of Camp is not in terms of beauty but in terms of the degree of artifice of stylizationIt goes without saying that the Camp sensibility is disengaged depoliticized or at least apoliticalIt Camp is the love of the exaggerated the 'off' of things being what they are not The best example is in Art Nouveau the most typical and fully developed Camp styleCamp is the consistently aesthetic experience of the world It incarnates a victory of 'style' over 'content' 'aesthetics' over 'morality' of 'irony' over 'tragedy'PS It was brought to my attention that Camp was the theme of the 2019's annual Met Gala If you google the event you'll be amazed by what you'll find
