Watch, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's mulling over the thought of compounding his resplendent Fiction Corpus with a fable about online calendars; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the potential of promulgating English as humanity's second language. I do challenge the unrewarding modus operandi by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Refining a person's adeptness with a language isn't like bringing about a stronger sail. A language - a living tongue - is not just an instrument that you can learn to wield with a greater amount of precision. A living tongue can't be bisected from the shared logic of a circle 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.

Teaching a pupil to recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A good instructor has to create a strategy for introducing it; the prudent student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written works of various size and consistency. Such a corpus might contain everything from a book about literature to a bunch of experimental fiction. I labored on my "imposing" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise sort of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have molded a million words and I have scrutinized them, reshaping them - not merely to teach a tongue but to be an advocate for the human spirit, and to encourage that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Watch

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 watch in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word watch, 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 watch is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Watch 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.

They entered St. Hedwig's. Jesus kneeled and crossed himself; Zoe watched. They proceeded down the right aisle.

Verse 376 from the chapter called Security

"He was funny, though: my grandfather. Turns out: some screw was loose in the pedal or something; we have to push the whole thing back. There was no gas getting into the engine. The pedal was dropping forward: you could barely press it down. My grandfather was pushing hard; we weren't going anywhere! 'Drive,' I said. 'I am driving! You think I don't know how to drive? I know how to press a pedal! Look: this is the kind of car it is.' Now and again, he'd grab his leg all of a sudden, as if his muscles were cramping up; he'd rub 'em really hard. 'Watch out,' I said. 'You'll break your leg.'

Verse 215 from the chapter called Adolescence

Julia was at one of the bars. She and her boyfriend had been watching my shenanigans as they drank. He was already in good spirits. "Hey, meester streeptease man!" he yelled.

Verse 428 from the chapter called Bohemia

He waved his hand in resignation. "Please," he said. "She's got satellites watching her every move, men sitting in vans with tinted windows - what do you think? She's got protection up to here," he said, holding his hand way above his head.

"What about paparazzi? Don't they go wild?"

Verses 347-348 from the chapter called Bohemia

"When we pass by these trees, you'll see the beautiful ridges of Wine Mountain. They've been partially dug into and made very thin. You'll have to watch yourself."

"Why are they so thin?" asked Zoe.

Usage of Watch 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.

Instead, you should considering writing something for me, instead of writing things for God knows whom, as I am your most eager audience. I have need. Never in my life have I felt quite so dangerously lonely. There is no one else in this house except for the television, and we are not on speaking terms; but out of desperation I may soon have to make concessions. A few months ago, I would've cringed at the thought of watching television. When I accepted Barbara's invitation, I was in a mood of perfect concentration. Through no fault of her own, I suspect that my excursion may have thrown my loneliness into such relief, making it so apparent, that what was once comfortable and conducive to work has now become almost unbearable.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 8, Loneliness, Paragraph 5

So anyway: there's only one reason I remember the opium dealer. One time, when he came by the apartment, he was standing outside on the steps: one foot on a higher step, the other foot stretching almost to the ground; his arms were spread out: one was grasping the railing, the other one was balancing. As he talked to Nike, I was standing in the doorway watching him balance like this. He kept moving his arms around and shifting his weight, balancing in a new way, playing with the stairs and gravity like so many had done before him. He kept moving his head too - but he wasn't looking around: his eyes were always on Nike, or else on Brian (who was also talking to him), and sometimes, he would look at me for a while, even though I don't think I ever said a word. And looking at us, he kept moving his head around - like a pet bird, but slower and more deliberate.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 6, Doing Business, Paragraph 1

At the door, I tried to make him stay, but to no avail. I watched him walk away, down Prospect Street; standing in the doorway, with cool morning air all around me, watching him dip down, then climb up, stopping once to turn around and wave, he made me very happy - inexplicably happy. I smiled and waved back, unconsciously aware that we would not meet again for a long time. Shortly after that night, I was graduated. Leaving campus, I left for Europe with you and we did not come back for a long time.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 7, Trying to Kiss, Paragraph 14

I stood there watching the train for a while. My mind was mostly empty. But there was a moment yesterday, a moment I was recalling.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 1, Cancer, Paragraph 4

She squeezed my hand. I said good night. She closed the door and I watched them for a moment. Then I told the driver where to go. It was a long cab ride. I realized I was wearing somebody else's tuxedo. I thought about my own suit. It was hanging in somebody else's closet. I was very tired - just like I am now. I realize I've been writing all day. I had to take this home with me from the hospital. But it's already past midnight. I should really go to bed. I will write some more tomorrow.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

"Clark," said Shephard. "Do you mind watching TV for a while? I have something I'd like to discuss with this young, beautiful woman. I promise I won't be long." Clark squinted. He didn't want to go in. Shephard beckoned. "Remember: play nicely. If you have any problems, I'll be in the next room." Clark was too confused to argue.

Shephard turned to Pepsi. "Why do these boys trust you? What's your secret?"

The man was right. As soon as Tatum was settled into her apartment, she came to watch. The excitement was contagious. Manga People strapped on magnetic harnesses. Their jawless mouths puckered with glee the instant they zipped up the sides of the domed roof.

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story featuring a frank discussion of what it means to belong

Gog proceeded to conquer the people of the valley. There was little resistance. Taking their tribute, Gog said, "I am Gog, son of Gomer, son of Japheth, who disembarked from the boat of Noah. I seek the high watchtower behind which the sun hides at night, about which the stars revolve, and from which all waters flow. Who among you knows the way?" The people claimed ignorance.

Shephard prepared to take another sip. He said, "The kind our last boss put on the terrorist watch list?" Clark turned back. He shrugged feebly. Shephard continued, "I assume we won't be helping the Chinese destroy them."

"We're looking for leverage against Beijing."

Usage of Watch in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

MS. JACKSON: If he came to me repentant of his sins - I mean all of them - I would forgive him. I would consider allowing him to return to this house. Do you think I don't want him? I want him more than you could ever know. I want him in a way that, unfortunately, I have never had him. I won't settle for less than I deserve. That's all I'm going to say on the subject. It upsets me. Your father has behaved strangely in the past; as of late, his actions have been frightening me. Maybe it is the climate around here - I'm not going to take any chances. (to KOKOMO) I want you to watch out for him, in case he should try to violate you.

FLETCHER: That is unwarranted.

MS. JACKSON: It may have taken a hundred and fifty years for another murder to occur, but we are not immune to rape. We need only bear witness to what took place on Pitcairn in recent times. Six men were found guilty of sexual offenses. That's almost the entire adult male population over there. I'm not going to let that happen around here - not while I'm alive. Do you understand? As soon as you're done with this mess, Kokomo, I would like these towels to go to the laundry. We have all of Lesbian's things to wash.

KOKOMO: I have a question, ma'am.

MS. JACKSON: Yes?

KOKOMO: Will our guest from New Zealand be staying with us for considerably longer than planned? If that's the case, I'm going to have to make a new schedule.

MS. JACKSON: I don't know, dear. I don't think so, but, then again, you can never be sure, can you? Just stick to the current schedule for now. I'm sorry if you've been overworked.

KOKOMO: That is not my concern at all.

MS. JACKSON: I just want Homo to feel as welcome as possible. Thank you for your continued cooperation. Excuse me.

– ACT I, lines 1323-1332

FLETCHER: I'm glad you liked it.

LESBIAN: We happened to see your father looking down on us the whole time from a cliff.

FLETCHER: What do you mean?

LESBIAN: He was staring at us the entire morning from a cliff. I thought he was going to jump.

FLETCHER: He was just standing there?

LESBIAN: He was just standing there.

LUKE: I went up to him. He was only watching us bathe.

ALICE: I hope he liked it.

FLETCHER: Don't mind him. My father's a bit crazy. One time, I woke up in the middle of the night. It was about three in the morning. I saw him standing in front of a pine tree, trying to decide whether or not he should chop it down. This was three in the morning. There was absolutely no reason for him to chop it down. It was really quite bizarre.

– ACT I, lines 55-63

FLETCHER: Oh, marriage! Where would man be without thy warm bondage? Those who fear the rope will never know the pleasure of being tied up: of pushing with all one's might only to stand still. It is a perverse joy, indeed, to take the plunge through the trapdoor: to hear one's soul snapping in two, pushing one's heart into one's throat: to say the words, 'I do.' To wed and then to bed - how old-fashioned an order! One cannot help but desire permanence in such an ever-changing world. To oppose it, lashed to a rock, feeling its weight crush one's spirit, may be a Promethean punishment best reserved for the noble. It is no wonder that only the force of custom and law kept so many together for so long. Matrimony is not for the faint of heart. So watch out, you concubines and concubinaries - you cohabitants and live-in friends: both cataracts and calm pools await you, but no peace at that river's end: just the wide, gaping maw of dissoluteness and abandon: the ocean of human desire, with nothing to do but sink. So swim home, like salmon, and enjoy rest: the comfort you get from being tied up. My prayers were answered: I am a man again - and soon to be more: a husband. Wish me luck, for the night is still young, and many acts of husbandry await me.

– ACT II, line 550

FLETCHER: I lost my virginity to a married woman. Her husband was abroad - had been for several months. She did plan on joining him, but she loved sex - she admitted it - more than she loved her husband. Then again, I didn't really know the man. Maybe he was the same way. Maybe he was a scoundrel. Some women are just crazy. I was doing work on her balcony at the time. She would undress in front of me through the window. She even let me watch her masturbate. I was around eighteen years old. She was forty. I had no idea what to do. I couldn't do anything, anyway. I was surrounded by my crewmates. When we finished, we packed up and we left. I didn't see her for several weeks. In due course, we bumped into each other at one of the local pubs. She asked me how I was doing. I told her I was fine. I bought her a few drinks. She asked me to take her home. I did. On her front porch, as she was removing her keys from her pocket, she dropped something.

ALICE: A condom.

FLETCHER: How did you know?

ALICE: I guessed.

FLETCHER: Is that something you've done?

ALICE: I've never done it. I assume, if you want to get your point across, that's the most powerful way.

FLETCHER: It's true. I couldn't help myself. I had to go up to her room.

ALICE: Did you like it?

FLETCHER: I loved it - as it was happening. When we were finished, I felt as dirty as a pig. She wanted me to come every Wednesday afternoon like clockwork.

ALICE: Did you?

– ACT I, lines 642-651

FLETCHER: There is a house on Norfolk that no longer stands. Its eaves of pine were reduced to ash. Its worthy frame that I helped build collapsed in a huge fury of smoke and fire that I helped start. I watched it burning from the top of Mount Pitt. I was too ashamed to go any closer. I was there in the room the night my father planned that terrible justice with his friends. I heard them goading each other into teaching their fellow man not to cooperate with the Australian government. It was madness I heard from their lips. They were the drunken lips of dogs waiting to pounce. I said nothing. I did nothing to stop them. When the police came, I lied and said I knew nothing. I climbed Mount Pitt out of morbid curiosity to see what I had wrought. That image of the house whose beams I placed - whose trusses I tied - in the distance - engulfed in flames - is seared upon my mind. I did nothing to stop it. Do you know how sorry I am? If I told you that somebody died in that fire, would it be in your power to forgive me?

Usage of Watch in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

The Amazon was called. He decided Orbitz's exchange with the shopkeeper was a kind of code. He ordered that they both be watched. It wasn't hard to do. Orbitz didn't move from his hotel room. The shopkeeper stayed in his shop. Customers came hawking antique ray guns. There were bidets customized for extinct species. A collection of hand-painted mechanical snakes was ruefully turned down. After a few days the members of the surveillance team noticed something strange. The shopkeeper never bargained. If he made an offer to buy something it was invariably albeit grudgingly accepted. The rest of the junk he dismissed even if he liked it. "What a shame," he would say. "I wish I could afford it." In the same hour he would sell something for ten times its cost. He was making piles of money.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance based on my affection for Stanislaw Lem, if you know who that is

Back home one day I was watching some random movie from the eighties. My father walks in. He looks at the screen and says, "That's the movie your mother was in." I asked him what the hell he was talking about. He told me to rewind to the part where the big name star is arguing in the streets. Sure enough my mother is in the background standing silently staring through a window.

– from “The Most Idiotic Actress,” a fictional story that has only a few facts mixed up as far as the author knows

The bank on the corner of Lima and Rebelo streets was a big bank. It had a glass tower reaching up into the heavens like every other building in the area. It was an old bank. Its first two floors were refreshingly free of the massive luxury watch billboards and perfume ads that littered the eye in every direction. The walls were made of stone. Walking further I realized it was just a facade. But the wall that ran perpendicular to Lima and Rebelo streets had a gallery on the second floor. It was the one old thing of substance I could see. The one part of the old building you could actually stand on. For a second I imagined myself in 19th century China as if I were a young Rebelo in love with a young Lima whose father owned the bank and whom I was dangerously wooing from the street with a bouquet of flowers. The world was beautiful and full of hope. Until the garbage truck honked for me to get out of the way.

– from “Beautiful Branca,” a true story that includes fiction as far as I can tell

One day Orbitz finally emerged from his hotel room. He was carrying what looked like a book. He went into the shop. "It's you again," said the shopkeeper. "What do you want?" Orbitz said nothing. He dropped the book on the counter and left. One half of the surveillance team followed him all the way to the space port. The other half decided to find out what was going on. They raided the shop. They found nothing. The book Orbitz had been carrying was an antique. It was stamped with the name of the hotel. When one of the agents went to the hotel to ask about it the clerk behind the desk wanted it back. He said every room was supposed to have one. It was tradition. He had no idea why. He said the owner would get mad if one of them disappeared. The owner was questioned about the book. He said the same thing. It was tradition. Every room had a book. Every book was the same. He didn't know why. He didn't care to know. The Amazon cared. According to his sources there was a chance the book had a connection to the Wiki-en Society. He ordered the hotel closed. He arrested the owner and the entire staff. They proved themselves innocent quickly. The Astrazeneca found no deception in them. The shopkeeper was different. He was held long after the others had been released. He wasn't lying about Orbitz. He had never seen the man before in his life. He was lying about the way he did business. He claimed he was an honest businessman. It was a lie. He claimed he knew a good bargain when he saw one. Another lie. The Amazon wondered what was happening. Orbitz had gone from the space port to a low orbit cruise ship. Aboard the same ship was Sara Lee. The scientist who had confounded the Astrazeneca in the first place. He assigned a surveillance team to watch her. She walked around and gazed at the blue planet. She didn't see Orbitz at all.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance written with Stanislaw Lem in mind, if you know who that is

Some not so unattractive female cousins of mine took me to see a movie. I got excited when I got to the theatre. Instead of popcorn and soda the bar was selling pickled peppers and beer. They even had cocktails. The movie was less suprising. It was an American comedy that was released in the States at least a year and a half earlier. I was glad there was no dubbing. Just subtitles. Until I started watching and I realized I was laughing at the jokes a full five seconds before anybody else. If at all. I was supremely embarrassed once again. Until the cocktails kicked in.

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. Trust leading to Anticipation; anticipation leading to Fear. Surprise leading to Disgust; disgust leading to Anger. Anger and Fear fueling our Sadness. Sadness giving way, in time, to Joy; through Hope, an orientation towards Love. Love, an openness towards Joy, Trust and Surprise; the sum of emotion; emotion amplified by others. Multiplied and divided, in equal parts. Such that to those from whom it has been subtracted, we must add. Until we are whole.
