Responding to Alicublog's little "Link to me 'cause I want attention!" or whatever link on the bottom of the page...
If a person wants attention, writing on the internet is not the way to go about getting it.
Anyone who thinks that has no grip on reality.
Why do I write this?
Not for attention.
In fact, look, if you want attention, saying out there things is not the way to go.
It works like this: some 'out there' things get attention, but they're mostly not really out there but instead denatured and toothless playthings that the media, in whatever form, can bat around and say how cool they are for doing it.
Real out there things get no such attention because people have limits. And...being out there means you fuckin' don't care about things like that...
There's an out there set where people with cheese and crackers in one hand looking at an art show in New York go along looking at vaguely pornographic pictures and say 'oh my, how shocking, how daring of him to do that'. And then there's the out there set which has to collapse out of exhaustion brought on by some sort of wildly productive and interesting seizure or fit.
