Since, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is weighing the possibility of supplementing his walloping Fiction Corpus with real-life stories of love; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I trust in the possibility of administering English as a worldwide standard. I don't trust in the altogether average model by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Honing a person's finesse for a language isn't like pioneering a brighter firework. A language - a spoken tongue - isn't just a tool that you can learn to employ with a greater amount of precision. A language cannot be disjoined from the philosophical currents 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.

Teaching pupils to recite English is to deprive them of its cultural context. A capable educator has to develop a technique for introducing it; the wisest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words based on a particular corpus, a body of written works of various size and consistency. They might contain everything from a book about literature to a bunch of experimental fiction. I burnt many candles developing my "colossal" Fiction Corpus to form a unique genre 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 fashioned a million words and I have anatomized them, reformulating them - not merely to teach a language but to describe the human soul, and to pressure that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Since

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 since in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Since 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.

"In the meanwhile, your body will rest. The regard you lacked in life will come in death. Unlike the tombs of counts whose names have long since been forgotten, poor men shall always come to visit your grave, dear sister. They will leave behind with you their golden libations. May it keep the soil around your body warm and wet, dear sister. May the ground be fertile and sprout beautiful flowers till the Resurrection. Then, we shall meet again. Adieu, sweet girl."

Verse 609 from the chapter called Adolescence

That room was his mother's childhood room. In it, among other things, he found a calotype of his mother taken when she was a young woman. It was uncolored - unblemished, as far as Jesus was concerned - and beautiful. His mother was beautiful, but this three-quarter, shoulder-length portrait of her did her beauty justice. It was small - pocket-sized - and Jesus kept one with him always. There were several copies, and Jesus left one at his mother's grave before we left for Mars. The rest he took with him, just in case he lost one in battle. It was very beautiful, that portrait. His mother's neck was turned to the right and slightly tilted. Her shoulders weren't straight: they were slightly stooped as if trying to fit between the sides of the picture - they barely made it. Her blond hair was shoulder-length and tucked behind her left ear; it was very large and prominent, but a very beautiful ear nonetheless. In general, the pose was quite spontaneous, which was remarkable for a calotype, since it required a whole minute of exposure.

Verse 153 from the chapter called Childhood

If not for the Holy See's influence, Jesus's seat would not have been permanent; Hitler Panzer-Tank might have made it his top priority to have Jesus ousted from the council by a two-thirds vote. Fortunately, the Vatican's favor was necessary and Hitler Panzer-Tank was forced to negotiate. Veto powers for Jesus were, of course, out of the question, but, at least, he gained for his Knighthood a guarantee that the rights-of-way accorded clergymen and members of the religious orders would be respected even though his was a military one. That was very important. Jesus had even surprised himself with that one - even though his tremendous power had long since ceased to surprise anybody else. Jesus had founded his order of Cosmonauts by simply saying so. The Pope had immediately suggested it be named after the patron saint of all Europe and Jesus had agreed. The organization, its purpose (to protect the Catholic Church on Mars), and its leadership under Jesus was soon recognized by papal bull, which, being sent out to heads of state, the United Nations, and, above all, AMOC's central planning committee, established its legitimacy.

Verse 88 from the chapter called Vows

"Since a few days ago, I guess," he said. "We must have gotten a budget increase."

"Congratulations," we said.

Verses 168-169 from the chapter called Bohemia

Jesus's seat in the Presidium, with or without the rank of Brigadier General, had been guaranteed by the fact that so many people (that is, members of Jesus's Confederation) had contributed so much (that is, the rest of the laundered money from the vaults of Tokyo-Mitsubishi Ginko) to Jesus's personal war chest, with which he had raised his private armored brigade of Lower Silesian riflemen, who were only Lower Silesian in name. Jesus had accepted volunteers from all across Europe: women and men who were drawn by Jesus's personality, who were talented, who didn't have anything against the Church, who desired glory and riches, power and the thrills of battle, who wanted to wage war against whatever the hell it was on Mars, be it Revolution or tyranny or misbegotten government, and who didn't want to taste the fact that they were fighting for oil interests as they gobbled up whatever the hell it was that they were going to have for themselves. Jesus knew what it was that they all wanted. They all wanted what everyone knew - or, at least, believed - that Mars had to offer: a large piece of the richest pie. They didn't realize that Mars had abandoned itself to the outer edge of the inner solar system for a very good reason (and the pie had long since cooled).

Usage of Since 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.

I have three people to blame; I'm going to start with Luke: he was responsible for my living arrangements. Having moved into Nike's townhouse on Prospect Street, and not planning to share it with any other lodgers, Luke had the pick of three bedrooms: one on the ground floor, one on the second floor, and Nike's old bedroom on the top floor. Luke wisely chose the middle bedroom, the only one that stays warm in the winter. Now Nike had been visiting for a few days, and, since he comes to visit so often, he has taken to leaving his junk all over the upstairs bedroom. When I arrived, Luke was sorry to inform me that I would be sleeping on the ground floor, in Macy's old bedroom, which hadn't been heated since Macy last slept there (and Luke couldn't remember when that was). Nike was leaving that night, so I was free to use the radiator; up I jumped, running upstairs to steal it, knowing exactly how cold Macy's room could get.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 8, Loneliness, Paragraph 6

Indiana just came by for a visit. She didn't stay long: apparently, she came by to make a request. A few minutes ago, she asked me whether I could take care of her children tonight. I agreed. Apparently, according to Indiana, she made a deal with the babysitter, who wanted Friday off in exchange for working on Saturday - or maybe, that's what Indiana wanted - I don't know - either way, I'll be spending my night with Fabric and Olympia. Much looking forward to it, dear sister: I haven't taken care of children since our cousin stayed with us for the whole month of August - remember? when you were in Austria and our mother was constantly working on Ramapo? I don't think I did a good job then: I don't think I'll do a good job now, but, anyway, it must be done - for the sake of the greater good or whatnot.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 6, Making a Request, Paragraph 1

NIKE: Exactly. Mead hasn't been popular since the Middle Ages. If I succeed in Paris? Whoa: Mistah Mistah, I am ready to roll - hey, is that kicked or what?

ANDY: Who's doin' your legal work?

LUKA: I think...

NIKE: My uncle.

LUKA: It is finished.

NIKE: Dude...

ANDY: Is he workin' for free?

NIKE: Pass the bowl - yeah, he's workin' pro bono.

ANDY: That's what I figured.

NIKE: Shall we pack another?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 15, Dealing with Grand Schemes, Paragraphs 46-55

Much to my pacification, Macy thanked me and assured me that he was in fact in the theatre - at least involved with it on campus, which delighted me, since I had a friend who did likewise, and I promptly enquired if he knew Nike, which he did, much to my great satisfaction, for Nike had always been a great gentleman, besides being the ingeniously dramatic person he is. And so it was that Nike became a fabulous topic for us. As we explored the absurdity of his tendencies, it stood us in good stead especially when my cousin was unable to join us, she herself being a great amusement.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 4, Meeting a Man in Austria, Paragraph 6

In their former state, my recent memories were indistinguishable from those of many years ago. But now, their form and shape has taken on so many abnormal characteristics: for instance, things are much larger now, as if they were blown up - and I can tell since the size of my consciousness has stayed the same.

As the crowd laughed it up, Patsy was called away by an urgent phone call. It was a Detective Morimoto of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. The detective explained that he was investigating a series of suspicious deaths from high-rise buildings in the Tokyo area. He had decided, upon being informed by Interpol of the investigation in the United States, to contact the lieutenant directly, since he was concerned that the deaths in Tokyo might have something to do with not only the Statue of Liberty death, but a girl who fell from a statue of Beipu in Taiwan.

Something plopped. Tae's head darted. There was nothing there. He could have sworn he had heard a plop.

Usage of Since 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.

(KOKOMO exits. GREY GOOSE enters.)

GREY GOOSE: My darling Polynesian beauty, Fletcher must be right. It's pointless for me to put the moves on you - especially since it's obvious you're in love with him. My chances of success were always slim. I never lost faith in a woman's whim. I was certain, if I tried hard enough, you would let me taste-test your sweeter stuff. Each one of my advances you rebuffed. You're too good. My situation has changed now that my dear wife and I are estranged. Perhaps some trickery can be arranged. If I were to slip softly into your bed, not smelling like chattel, but like that perfume you gave my son - that little brat - who cares more about annoying my wife than pursuing the love of his own life, even though I'm the one she causes strife - perchance I might convince you with a kiss - before you discover my artifice - that I am the best way to earthly bliss. It would give me joy. My desire to light this house on fire would be assuaged. Despite what I have said, I will never ignite another house again. I am reborn. Ever since your mistress unleashed her scorn, making me sit in filth, lost and forlorn, in my old cowshed, I have taken stock. I'll no longer blindly follow the flock. I cannot yet say the same for my cock. If my wife's got a lover, I'll be damned if I don't. I'm not going to be crammed away. I'll come back with my monogrammed pajamas. I'll drink champagne and cut loose like there's no tomorrow. I'll introduce Kokomo to my little one-eyed goose and she'll say I'm her daddy. My excitement notwithstanding, I must not invite suspicion. I'll save my strength for tonight!

– ACT II, line 30

FLETCHER: I'm all set with that, by the way.

GREY GOOSE: With what?

LESBIAN: What?

MS. JACKSON: Go in there.

LESBIAN: Me?

MS. JACKSON: Yes.

LUKE: (to ALICE)

I'll explain later.

MS. JACKSON: How dare you invade this house? You idiot! What were you trying to do? Rape my cook? Don't tell me she was expecting you. You weren't expecting him, were you?

KOKOMO: No.

MS. JACKSON: You were trying to seduce her. My God! With a sudden invasion of the sofa bed? Not even an imbecile would consider that an effective strategy. You've lost your wits completely, haven't you? Pathetic. If you're so desperate for sex, why don't you try buying some attention?

GREY GOOSE: I admit that there have been a few times in the past couple years when I thought my vow of fidelity to you had long since expired. There may even have been a few times when I looked after a nice bit of flesh. Despite that, I've never been unfaithful to you, Ms. Jackson, no matter what you might think. As for this, I won't deny what I was after - and have been after for too long now - which is, namely, to sleep in my own bed, whether or not your cook or your lover or anyone else is in it at the time - and that, my dear, is a matter of your own construction.

MS. JACKSON: You deserved to be expelled. Do you think I enjoyed getting looks in town? Complimenting my dress, were they? You promised me you had never fooled around and that you never would. Now I know every single word they ever uttered about you is true. How could you? After all we've been through? I loved you.

FLETCHER: Come on.

GREY GOOSE: Wait. I've got some more to say. I confess I earned somewhat of a reputation in my day - for reasons mostly beyond my control, like my virility and my instinctual desire to perform well.

FLETCHER: Don't screw it up.

Are you a eunuch?

The art show that defies abuse

St. Sebastian

Wall art symbolizing strength and protest

St. Sebastian was a member of the Roman Emperor's praetorian guard who had the audacity to teach Christian values while on the job. I think active duty American military men and women who don't vote or who don't publicly express a political opinion because of the uniform are either being idiotic or are being cowed by the threat of punishment from a superior. Either way, they're eunuchs. My purpose in creating the St. Sebastian Series is to put the flesh and face of the true soldier front and center. The good soldier puts his mission ahead of himself. He often ends up dead. The true soldier knows a bad mission when he sees one and he isn't afraid to say it. Saint Sebastian was not a cow, despite what clever people would have you believe. Saint Sebastian is a patron saint for all protestors who face the arrows of the mob for speaking out.
