I smiled at first but after a while I couldn’t help feel that they were modern fundametalism attempting to be something else and failing. As I looked at them it felt like the comedy equivalent of reading the Daily Mail, hence the Melville quote. But then isn’t that how all modern satire works, by taking bits of a picture and creating a meta-narrative? Creating a meta-narrative is all the modernist can do, it is their way, their very being :-)
In no relation to the link at the bottom of this post I am seriously considering ditching facebook. I am concerned that my profile appears on pages with advertisements from such companies as I would prefer not to be associated with… it works both ways capitalists!
Woke up this morning and there in the bath (I didn’t wake up in the bathroom but it was the first room I went to) was a giant house spider - well it was quite big.
I was tempted to leave it in the bath, after all it may have been there simply to have a wash, but to be honest I don’t buy Lynx Shower Gel for anyone to use and so I had to act (if only I was as talented as Ross Kemp).
After finding an empty plastic beaker, I trapped the Tegenaria domestica, and sliding some card under the beaker was able to pick it up. I glanced into the beaker, and with an air of superiority that comes with only millennia of evolutionary progress or intelligent design I said, ‘ha’.
And the spider stood there (stood seems such a little word for something that has eight legs) and gave me such a dirty look… so I threw it out the house
