Dollars, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the concept of beefing up his gallant Fiction Corpus with real-life stories of love; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I have faith in the possibility of utilizing English as humanity's second language. I don't believe in the fatiguing strategy by which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Fortifying a person's adeptness with a language isn't like creating a stronger rope. A language - a spoken language - isn't just an instrument that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A common language can not be disassociated from the professed knowledge of a tribe of people of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

To make a student recite English is to deprive her of its cultural context. A capable instructor must prepare a plan for introducing it; the wisest pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a set of written works of varying scope and consistency. This corpus could include anything from a book about literature to some good fiction. I watched many nights pass creating my "titanic" Fiction Corpus in order to form a distinct genre of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in many different forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have constructed a million words and I have investigated them, reformulating them - not simply to teach a language but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to pressure that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help Prevent Anti-Social Behaviour With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

Europe, the summer of 2011. Twelve countries. 46 days. One car. One tent. One man. One woman he's just met.

I had come to Europe to experience European naturism, a movement whose philosophy matched my aesthetic of body acceptance and whose organizational structure and leadership I had thought almost exclusively restricted to the western half of the continent. I was shocked to learn that naturism had an official home in Poland, a country not especially known for its liberal culture. I was less shocked to discover that the home was owned by a Dutchman, but even more shocked to learn that it had been largely built by Margo.

I was from America, land of the free...home of the brave. She carried the weight of Old Europe...domestic and religious poverties...stifled creativity. Anger. Sadness. Yearning.

I've never gone hungry without deserving it. I've never been systemically beaten by a parent. I've never been fondled by a priest. That doesn't mean I can't listen to somebody who has had to experience such abuse and it doesn't mean I can't try to understand. Margo and I traveled 6,000 miles together. We slept in the same tent. We had to listen to each other. A person shouldn't need 6,000 miles to do it. We should be able to listen to each other just because we want to. We should've been taught to do it. If we haven't been taught, we should be learning how to do it and learning fast.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Dollars

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word dollars in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word dollars, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word dollars is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Pronunciation of DollarsMargo on a trampoline

I have yet to publish a pronunciation for the word dollars.

Video of me pronouncing "dollars."

Definition of DollarsMargo on a trampoline

Dollars are six-inch long paper slips with designs on them that a lot of people want to get and then hold on to for as long as they can, not because they don't want to get more of them but because they think they might not be able to or else they think that dollars are or will become more valuable than other things that people like to get and hold on to. In the case of the latter, dollars can become a fetish in the sense that their value is determined not by the person printing them but in the imagination of a person who is deciding whether or not to exchange them for something else. Dollars can also refer to the promise that you can get a bunch of six-inch long paper slips with those designs on them as long as you punch in the right code on a machine or ask a certain somebody for it nicely and not everybody else is the world is asking for it at the same time.

Usage of Dollars in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

The latest scandal involved the recently privatized PZU. Somebody important in the government kept confessing - and with great relief, claiming that he had carried around this secret for five years - that the PZU, the country's largest insurer, had been sold by the government for its own money. By now, people were completely disillusioned with their government, but they wondered how such a thing could even be possible, considering that the major investor had been - and was - a Dutch-Portuguese company from Holland. It turned out: a Polish bank had purchased a ten percent share in the PZU for the same amount of money that the PZU had previously deposited in the Polish bank. It was incredible. The worst part was that the Dutch-Portuguese company refused to renegotiate and the whole deal was brought before international arbitration. The Polish government was made to pay a billion dollars in damages. On top of all that was talk that the Dutch government had held Poland hostage by refusing to approve certain legislation in the European Parliament until the Dutch-Portuguese company in question had won the privatization deal.

Verse 33 from the chapter called Vows

"These pictures were taken this morning," he said, handing him the photographs. "They show Hitler Panzer-Tank the Third in Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's office on the fourth floor of the Rathaus Club making a payoff. We estimate, from the size of the suitcase - as seen in this photograph - and this one - and from the height of the money inside and what we can only assume is the prevailing bill denomination - as seen in this photograph - use the magnifying glass - that the sum in question approaches twenty-four million dollars."

Verse 833 from the chapter called Security

Jesus's father was beyond tears. My sister's disappearance caused only more lethargy and more heroin use. Before long, he refused to eat. He refused to get up out of bed. He stopped selling the few books he had left. If not for the robbery, Jesus would've been forced to sell the television, or worse, the radio. He had stolen six hundred dollars from the Krupnik. My grandmother had once told me the story of how she had robbed an old woman of half a round of cheese and all her bread. "You have not sinned," said the priest. "You did not take her food out of spite or for pleasure, but because you were hungry." Jesus only spent a third of his booty on bread.

"Was it good?" I asked. "Robbing a Krupnik?"

Verses 665-666 from the chapter called Adolescence

How much pain and suffering those balls of stocking must have caused! Not all of them were bad: for years, Jesus sold brown nylon stockings to local women, both young and old, at five dollars a piece; cotton stockings were slightly less popular, but cotton panty hose and tights were best-sellers for kids. Jesus's clientele was too poor to be fashionable; if it had been, perhaps your father might have sold more cotton stockings, considering the vogue for nineteenth century wardrobes.

Verse 182 from the chapter called Adolescence

I went to Goofy and said, "I need a gun."

"How fast?" he said.

"As soon as possible," I said.

"You can have mine," he said.

"How much?" I asked.

"How much ya got?" he said.

"Four hundred dollars," I said.

"Alright," he said. "That's fine."

Usage of Dollars in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

While I was recollecting myself, my eyes happened upon the beggar and the crowd of students gathered around him. I watched as one of those Oxford-wearing snakes began prodding that poor despicable man; I believe he even whispered something to him - he must have: next thing I know that dirty man was raising his arm and bidding two hundred dollars. "They're financing him!" I said to myself, and turning to Luke, I looked imploringly in his eyes. He was shaking his head: "I don't have that much money," he said. It was time to take matters into my own hands.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 9

Now, according to this complicated formula, if X is the number of weeks that have elapsed, then Y is the amount of money that's owed to me. But, unfortunately, after I finally figured out the equation, I discovered too late that it was actually parabolic; that is to say, after a few weeks, I started owing him money. And by the time I figured it out, I owed him about a million dollars. God knows how much I owe him now; it's a good thing he's dead.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 56, Clauses 9-13

It was the most garish thing I had seen in quite a long while, but we were at Vinnie's, and all the loudest customers seemed to be enjoying it. In fact, someone enjoyed it so much, he offered two hundred and five dollars for the first one, who was by far the more attractive. The other one wasn't too shabby, and she received a winning bid of a hundred and seventy-five. No one before them had broken a hundred, and I was worried that Barbara would be disappointed. Not that I should've been worried, because everyone was well on his way to being wasted, and the whole thing was ridiculous anyway. But I was worried nonetheless, and I told Luke to be prepared.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 4

I looked back at Barbara just in time to see her fallen face. Somebody yelled out sixty and somehow she was able to squeeze out a painful smile across her lovely visage. But her muscles were not able to hold it long: the beggar offered an astounding eighty dollars, and she, dropping the corners of her wretched smile, had to fix the most pathetic face I have ever seen: like a mask of death sprinkled with glitter, painted with bright and happy colors that, aesthetically speaking, did not reconcile her now pale skin, or the uneven lines of her twisted lip, or relieve the tension of her naked brow in that beautiful but wretched face of slowly sinking features, relaxing themselves as if they knew the touch of death, and welcomed fate, even though the mouth was still fixed in horror, quietly extending the poetic moment with its cautious gaping, barely unfurling its bottom lip, as if still unsure of its fate in that final moment: a quiet appeal for justice that did not fall on blinded eyes, even though mine were temporarily imprisoned by her beauty in that smoky dungeon.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 7

The bidding for Barbara started at twenty dollars. Some student in a red baseball cap went for twenty, and then Luke immediately bumped it up to twenty-five. I hit him in the ribs and told him to stay out of it until the time was right. He asked me when that would be and I had to snap back; if he didn't know I couldn't explain it to him. By the time I turned my attention back to the bidding, it was up to thirty-five dollars. As somebody called out forty, I told Luke that this was usually where the real war breaks out - not that I know anything about bidding, but things seemed to be going well; I was suddenly buoyed with false confidence. Somebody yelled out forty-five and I looked up at Babs and she was looking straight at me, smiling such a beautiful smile; I wish I could've sketched it. And then disaster struck.

They extorted five hundred and fifty-two dollars from me in exchange for promising to keep quiet. Cash, by the way, is very hard to come by on this island. What could I do?
