Corner, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is studying the potency of strengthening his ponderous Fiction Corpus with a bunch of science fiction books; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the practicality of using English as everybody's second language. I do question the sterile route by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Upgrading one's mastery of a language isn't like pioneering a larger dome. A language - a common tongue - is not just a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A spoken tongue can not be torn from the professed knowledge of a group 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 teacher has to find a way to introduce it; the smartest pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a particular corpus, a set of writing of various size and consistency. This corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to some real kid stories. I burned many candles laboring on my "ordinary" Fiction Corpus in order to form a distinct sort 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 prepared a million words and I have categorized them, reformulating them - not just to teach the English tongue but to defend the human soul, and to prod that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Ad Hominem Attacks 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

On the second to last weekend of June, 2011, I had joined my fellow naturists at a gathering of the Naturist Society in rural Pennsylvania. The next day I left on a flight for Europe. By the end of the week I had unexpectedly met another naturist, a woman, who was destined to accompany me on a tour of Europe's great naturist resorts.

As an artist, from the beginning of my adult career, my work had been devoted to the problem of body acceptance, a goal that I would later learn was shared by a whole community of people called naturists, a humble portion of which I discovered residing in Poland, a country whose cultural conservatism does not lend itself readily to forward thinking. One of those forward-thinking Polish naturists happened to be Margo.

As an American, I was full of optimism and confidence bordering on recklessness. I was ready to run the wheels off the car I had just bought and eventually I would. As a European, she was cautious and mistrustful. She needed to make sure the air conditioner worked. Which it did. If you knew how to turn the broken knob in just the right way.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you. But how to judge what we would want done to us if we've never been in somebody else's shoes? If we've never been abandoned by our mother, how do we treat somebody who has? Somebody who seems to constantly suffer the repurcussions of it? Margo and I had 46 days and 6,000 miles to try on each other's shoes. We had one car and one tent in which to hear each other's words. We learned to cooperate. We started learning how to listen.

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 Corner

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 corner in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Corner 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.

Sadatmo's men were cornered. If Sadatmo had been smart, he would've made some kind of conciliatory gesture, like an agreement to a partial withdrawal. The Americans were uncomfortable: they didn't like to fight, especially in outer space, where it seemed like nothing was really worth their time. Protestors on Earth were always saying, "no blood for oil!" as if they didn't drink it, but the government was having particular difficulty in defending their lack of compromise. The president said the principle was fighting the aggressor and protecting free trade, but then his secretary said the whole thing was about saving jobs, which really confused people. Instead of capitalizing on this confusion, Sadatmo used fighting words and threatened to drop chemical weapons on top of the Jews. People wondered why Sadatmo had chemical weapons: "who gave him chemical weapons?" they said. Nobody answered.

Verse 125 from the chapter called Childhood

When the former heroin dealer left his house, I followed. From a discreet distance, I watched him go down the hill that led to the main road. There was a heath on the right side. Beyond the heath was the convent. At one of its back corners, my prey turned right, onto a path that led behind the convent wall. Cutting across the heath, I ran crossways toward the end of that path, and, pushing through the dense greenery that separated it from the heath, I waited. When the unsuspecting man was passing right in front of me, there was no hesitation. I pushed him into the convent wall.

Verse 779 from the chapter called Adolescence

Jesus took her down to the street. At the corner, they turned left. When they reached the main road, Jesus turned right. "On your left," said Jesus, as Zoe ran to catch up, "you'll find Treblinka's Culture Center. Inside, you would find the town's only movie theatre."

"Do they have a regular theatre as well?"

Verses 322-323 from the chapter called Security

They went down John Paul the Second Street and, turning right, they went behind the Convent wall, where, not so long ago - but what seemed like ages ago - a local drug dealer had been ambushed and threatened with a gun. I still had that gun. Reaching the road, they turned left, and, after turning its first corner, they followed it onto a narrow footpath, which climbed uphill.

Verse 401 from the chapter called Security

Jesus followed them onto the main road. He knew that they were parked at Town Square - he had seen their car on the way back to the club: who else could possibly have driven a custom-made sports car into Treblinka? Only a Krupnik. As far as Jesus knew, this was the only Krupnik in town that night. If his car was parked at Town Square, Jesus could beat them to it. At the fork in the road (where the Town Office Building was), Jesus veered left, onto Church Road, which led directly to the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul - whereas they had turned right, continuing along the main road which led directly to Town Square. Jesus started running. He ran all along Church Road, uphill, turning right onto Linden Flower Road in front of the brick church's red walls and black-shuttered windows, which were closed. He sprinted all the way to the main road. When he got there, he wasn't sure if he were late or on time; he wasn't about to check around the corner. He put his back against the wall.

So I went inside, quickly wending my way through the crowded salon. I went upstairs to the main bedroom. I approached Albert's closet - but, before I got there, I was distracted. Something pulled me towards Indiana's corner. Gowns were draping her screen. Articles of clothing were strewn about, undergarments littering the floor. I approached her infamous mirror. I looked at myself. I saw the door to Albert's closet.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 15, Running Away, Paragraph 2

Albert had called me the previous day, asking if it were 'alright' if he moved in tomorrow. I repeated my consent, and, with gratitude, he made one more request: he asked if I could drive him. I, of course, agreed, thinking nothing more of it, and, the next day, getting off at Holland Park Station, I crossed the perilous avenue, making my way around the corner and down the street. Olympia was kind enough to open the door for me.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 4, The Fourth Day, Part 2, The Assembly & Government Reform, Section 6, Being Obedient, Paragraph 6

Nike walked as fast as he could to his car. Driving down the Rue du Colisée and the Rue de Penthièvre, he crossed the Boulevard Malesherbes, and, continuing down the Rue des Mathurins, he drove around the Opera house. At the northeast corner, he took the Rue La Fayette, but he drove too far: the Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière was going south, so Nike had to turn around at Saint Vincent de Paul, taking Rue D'Abbeville onto the Rue Condorcet before turning northward.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 14, Getting to the Heart of a Matter, Paragraph 1

But these were more familiar garments: I recognized one of Macy's old T-shirts, one of my favorites, very colorful but tasteful, very tasteful. I had not seen him wear it in years, so many long years, and I imagined a younger Macy wearing it once again. I smiled, and looking around the room, the clutter no longer seemed like clutter. It was Macy: the evidence of his existence. It was his clothing in the bag, his old papers stacked in piles around the room. They were his books, his quarters, his dimes and nickels that were scattered across the desk. It was his pile of pennies that lay separate. It was his bed in the corner, his sheets that were ruffled, his comforter, his blankets falling off the edge.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 9, Intoxication, Paragraph 1, Clauses 6-14

We were standing in a nice corner. The walls around us were high and windowless. Concrete was crumbling and cracking itself. There was a lot of rusted metal. The ground was littered. "You know what I like about big cities? I like these kinds of places: the buttholes and the bellybuttons." There was even some neglected shrubbery around us. It was bordering the crumbling concrete steps upon which Luka was seated. I placed my foot beside his on the lowest one. I started balancing my leg. I thought of the stairs outside our old apartment. I thought of the opium dealer - as a character from a New Comedy, with Luka, the poor yeoman; Anicetus, the corrupted son of an equis; and me, Andreas: the lowly manservant, the torch-bearing slave.

Something darted. I turned my head. I jumped. I breathed a sigh of relief. It was the road, bathed in headlights. Somebody was driving. There was a passenger. I stretched my arms. I gripped the corners of the bucket seats. I tried to pull myself. I barely moved. My arms were powerless. I sat back.

"What am I going to do?" thought Shephard. He looked around. There was a man tanking a sedan. He was too close to the humvee-there was no time to find keys.

Shephard took another look around the corner. Clark was coming out of the station. A man in a tight uniform was next to him. He was escorting Clark to the humvee.

Obama took it the hardest. Any sound, any silent white face staring at him made him run around the corner. He never stopped talking about leaving. He wanted to go to France. Never mind that he didn't speak a word of French. He was obsessed with the idea of being in Paris. As far as I know he's there now. He just disappeared one day. If Barack knew something he never told me.

The Amazon called his team. One half was still following Orbitz on the cruise ship. The other half was in front of the shop. He ordered them into the neon building. They walked up to the second floor. The team leader paused. He could hear something in the room ahead. It sounded like a man rapping his fingers on a desk. He pushed open the door. There was no desk. There was no man. There was clutter everywhere. Strange objects of art and furniture stacked on top of each other loomed from every corner. The rapping continued. It was slower now. It was more cautious. The men squeezed into the room. All of them were transfixed by the sound. It was coming from behind a low curtain. The curtain was draped over what seemed like a crate. Or a cage. The men crowded in front of it. The leader reached out his hand. He grabbed a corner of the curtain. He lifted it.

The two men stared at each other. Orbitz said, "You're me."

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
