Well? How does "funktionslust" apply to you?Me? I thought you'd never ask. No, really, the thought had occurred to me, so I figured I'd just keep quiet for now except to ask the question.Oh, and this has given me a new appreciation for the word "lustig" which I thought to mean "funny", but now I feel like it means something more like "to cause a mirthful pleasure".../endcommenthijack
hey rickyD -- thanks for stopping by -- re funktionslust -- depends on the time of day, I guess -- when I read this passage it reminded me of Chagall's Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers -- as I understand it, to "do something with seven-fingers" is a yiddish expression for really being in the flow (but I should probably double check my source on that). anyway: struck me as cool. take care.
When I first saw this I read it as funktion-slut. Where's that tape recorder when you need it?Thought you might be interested in this bit of poetry from my alma mater's literary journal:http://www.vqronline.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/7991
great piece -- worth the cut and paste -- thanks! re the misreading: yeah -- I made the same mistake. I'm sure blogspot's banned me from incoming "view this blog" clickthroughs like they did when I posted on picasso.
you are so naughty.
*agrees* That piece was very good "opiliones"... If that is your REAL name.And to the Hoo of Sutton: You are welcome for stopping by. I only hope my presence here has given you something in return. Like a rash or a stubbed toe. Gifts that keep giving.Did I mention I enjoy your shots? Just don't shoot me. I've got my whole life ahead of me. Well, not my whole life, but hopefully alot still.Either way, I need another drink. No seriously, I need one.
