Anybody, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is weighing the potency of augmenting his mammoth Fiction Corpus with a story about fine art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the feasibility of implementing English as a worldwide standard. I do reject the formalistic program by which the English language is taught.Pointer

Upgrading one's skill with a language isn't like promoting a more secure lock. A language - a common tongue - is not merely an instrument that you can teach yourself to use with a greater amount of precision. A living tongue can't be decoupled from the competing values of a society 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 pupil recite English is to strip her of its cultural context. A worthy educator has to prepare a plan for introducing it; the bravest student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a specific corpus, a set of writing of various size and consistency. This corpus can include everything from a book about literature to some real hard boiled fiction. I watched many nights pass creating my "monolithic" Fiction Corpus in order to form a different 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 molded a million words and I have categorized them, reframing them - not merely to teach a language but to reveal the human spirit, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Treat Sociopathy 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

By the end of my first week in Europe in 2011, I had bought a car and out of the blue had met the woman who would join me on a 6,000 mile trek across the European continent, sharing the beat-up car that I had bought and the one small tent from Walmart that I had brought along with me on my flight.

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.

I had grown up in America. Land of opportunity. I came of age in the booming 90s when everything was possible. She had grown up in Poland. She had come of age at a time when the Soviets were making sure that there wasn't even anything to eat in the country. I couldn't even properly translate the word "opportunity" into Polish.

Margo and I spent over 40 days on the road. We started out as basically strangers, but in those 40 days we started listening to each other. We started teaching ourselves how to cooperate. Our journey across Europe may have ended, but our journey towards each other continues. No amount of fear, anger, sadness, disgust or anticipation can stop hope. Slowly but surely, we're learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

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 Anybody

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 anybody in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Anybody 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.

"Don't worry about it," I said. I laughed. "You smell no worse than anybody else."

Verse 494 from the chapter called Bohemia

The problem of finding out when the shipment occurred was, to a certain extent, easy enough. Of course, it was necessary to assume that the shipment took place not only during the terrorist insurgency in Germany, but also along the same route that regular Polish army shipments took, and that the vehicle used was a diesel truck. These were all safe assumptions, but they were assumptions nonetheless. The arms were from a factory in Brno - that was for sure: the serial numbers didn't lie - but whether or not the arms were first sent somewhere else before entering Poland was anybody's guess. During the terrorist insurgency, most borders had been closed. If anyone had been trying to smuggle 'misplaced' arms, the safest way would've been to disguise them as a regular army shipment. That was the premise on which Jesus's effort was based.

Verse 33 from the chapter called Security

Gradually, the information leaked out that the man suspected of organizing the whole thing was not, like the rest of the terrorists, an outer-space pirate, but was, in fact, a once infamous Martian citizen, who, in the months leading up to the Revolution, had been suspected of several assassinations in the province of Elysium. Before the fall of the Martian government, and the subsequent loss of contact with the red planet, the man had been charged and arrested for two murders. What he was doing on Earth organizing a terrorist action was anybody's guess. Before long, the information leaked out that the space ship had been packed with nothing but bottles of air, food, and massive amounts of water - barrels and barrels of it. The man himself had nothing to say except for the fact that some kind of entity named Zeus was the impetus behind his actions. Many of his statements were made public. "Zeus will come to Earth to avenge your sins," he said. "Zeus will free the prisoners," he said. "Zeus will make me free!"

Verse 678 from the chapter called Adolescence

When coalition forces opened fire on Dhagbod ships, the ships went to A/COMP - that was confusing. Then the Martian Governor-general stepped in again, promising that he would persuade Sadatmo to withdraw peaceably or else, thereby saving the coalition the awful expense of having to invade occupied stations. Nobody knew what the Martian Governor had up his sleeve, but, if he succeeded, Sadatmo would remain in power with his forces intact - what that meant for Mars was anybody's guess. In the end, the coalition was undeterred. The United Nations wouldn't budge, and the Martian Governor backed off.

Verse 126 from the chapter called Childhood

"No: they ran away into the darkness - both of them."

"Anybody hurt?"

Usage of Anybody 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.

FAT: Blesh you, boy, blesh you.

NIKE: I hope you weren't taking the last train: I still have to get home tonight.

FAT: Ish not that late, chile, ish not that late.

NIKE: I just came to drop these books off. I was lucky I saw you, Father, I didn't think anybody'd be here. I was on my way home from work, I thought I should walk by anyway.

FAT: What?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 6, Encountering Chastity, Paragraphs 9-13

NIKE: It's because they're disgusting. They're all from Brazil or something. They've got a lot of weird poor people.

LUKA: Why would anybody want them?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 20, Encountering the Sex Trade, Paragraphs 31-32

What was going on? Was this procedure standard? For whom was he standing then? for himself? or someone else? Was that bastard Christian behind this or not? Was that beautiful woman behind those lights right now? Was this the only chance he'd have? "Number five can go." If number five goes, then what about four? Was this lineup for number two? Then where's his lawyer? Where's anybody's lawyer? But most importantly: where is number four's lawyer? Why hadn't he called anyone? Why must he be so arrogant? "Number four, step forward." It's true: he wasn't formally charged. In the States, that means no lawyer. But this was France. Why didn't he know French law better? "Step back, please." Why must he be so helpless? "Step back, number four." Nike fell to his knees. He brought his hands together in supplication. "Please," he said, "please, forgive me. I want to love you - do you hear me? I want to love you!" But there were people rushing and crowding around him.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 7, Surprising Oneself, Paragraph 4

Now the reason for my erection was straightforward. The truth is: the sight of Gianni's naked body was, in fact, stimulating...and I often experienced erections in his presence. But, my arousal was not the product of desire: it was the product of a simple visual stimulant working with my imagination. To put it plainly: Giovanni was being sexy, and I was being aroused. Not everyone would be comfortable with himself in that sort of situation, but I knew it for what it was: intentional arousal on the part of Giovanni which I had nothing to do with. It didn't mean I wanted to have sex with him. It didn't mean I wanted to have sex with anyone. And I certainly didn't want him looking at me lustfully. I didn't want his hand on my shoulder petting me. I didn't want his hand anywhere else, but I didn't say anything, because...I was...I don't know: maybe I was waiting to see what would happen. But, of course, he was arousing me more and more: anybody's hand will do that, especially when it's drawing lightly across the skin.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 1, Greenery & Land Reform, Section 3, Explaining Things Honestly in an Incomplete Way, Paragraph 4, Clauses 7-18

ANDY: No, I haven't seen them. But then again, I haven't really seen anybody - not since, you know, everything was happening.

NIKE: What was it like?

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.

"I told you. There's a crackdown. You're not going to find anybody in the cities. This town has one public security bureau. I don't think they have guns."

"What are we going to see around here?"

"There's a monument to Chairman Mao right in front of you. Turn around. There's a post office, a mobile phone center-even an Avon store. Would you like some cosmetics?"

"Do I look like I need some? Point me in the direction of the nearest four-star hotel."

"No," cried Harry Connick. "You're not pulling anybody out of this race. If the horse falls, we'll fall together. I don't care if you have to peel me off the track. I've been spineless my entire life. I'm not backing down now. Don't you understand? I've been afraid of everything-even my beloved wife. That's why I'm here. God knows every time she sat next to me, I cringed. I squeezed my legs so tight, I cracked my own nuts. Not anymore. I'm not going to let them keep dividing us between black and white, the thin and the morbidly obese, the rich and the middle-class. It's over. I've seen the promised land. It's a horseshoe-shaped circle paved with bricks. There's a sign hangin' above it. The sign says, 'Winner.' Now I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm walking into that circle if I have to crawl over a dead horse and die. Who's with me?" Everybody cheered.

"You're straight."

"They're disgusting. They're from the poorest families in Martinique or French Guiana or something."

"If that's true, why would anybody want them?"

"The forest gets cold. They were huddling in the bushes."

"I doubt it. If anybody had seen anything, they would have stopped. It was a steady stream of traffic."

"They were tourists."

"Last year?"

"Cops were around."

Gog shook his head. "I did not come to pay anybody homage. I have come as an equal." He returned his embassy with gifts of offal. Gog assembled his chiefs. He asked them if there were any who wished to submit to the king of the Hayk.

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 enters.)

MS. JACKSON: Oh. I'm sorry. Excuse me.

KOKOMO: Not at all.

MS. JACKSON: I was going to do this later, but since you're both here, I'd like to apologize. Earlier, I let my emotions get the better of me. Despite the fact that you are my son and you are my faithful employee, I was very quick to think the worst of you. That's inexcusable and I'm sorry.

KOKOMO: Thank you, Ms. Jackson. I forgive you.

FLETCHER: Likewise.

MS. JACKSON: I know you don't like what's going on, but try to see things from my perspective. I have a responsibility - not only to my guests, but to myself. I'm not going to let anybody interfere with this business - even your father.

– ACT I, lines 1314-1319

(ALICE exits.)

KOKOMO: Yet again, I'm left holding the wet, dirty towels. Not to worry. It's alright. I don't mind. In truth, if I could spend the rest of my life cleaning up after Fletcher Christian, I would be a very happy woman. Even if that is silly and backwards, that's how I feel. I would never phrase it like that to anybody; I'm not crazy. I'd make him take out the garbage and all that. Alice is right. It's high time I told him how much he makes my heart beat. I could turn it into a joke if it looks like he's uncomfortable. That would be dreadful. What kind of a joke would it be? I need a heart transplant? That's not funny. What am I going to do?

MS. JACKSON: Kokomo!

KOKOMO: Of course: the laundry.

LESBIAN: It's a tiny bug that invades trees and makes them grow abnormal clumps of tissue. It doesn't have to be a tree. I remember my mother's rose-hedge suffering from gall.

It has its own name - a beautiful one. It's known as Robin's pincushion.

MS. JACKSON: Oh, Heavens! My pincushion: it's still missing. I'm sorry, Homo. I didn't mean to interrupt.

LESBIAN: It's not a problem.

MS. JACKSON: I don't understand. Who could've taken it?

LESBIAN: Somebody close to you.

MS. JACKSON: Who?

LESBIAN: More importantly, why?

GREY GOOSE: Not to mention this island's penchant for making the most grotesque of assumptions - never mind that. I did a terrible thing in burning down that house: I know it. I've been paying for it ever since. I'm finally sorry for doing it. I don't think I could've said that this morning. Something's changed. I don't want to be like that anymore. I don't want to do those things. I think the Australians should mind their own business; that's neither here nor there. If you didn't squeal my name to the police, somebody else did. I'm going to find that person - not to burn down his house - to talk to him calmly and rationally: to put these absurd suspicions to rest. Everybody deserves to hear the truth, especially the people you love. I was kicked out not because of my reputation or the looks you were getting in town. It wasn't because you thought I killed that girl. It was because I hurt you. I hurt you a long time ago and I've always been too selfish to realize it. I expected you to understand - even though I never properly explained myself. It had nothing to do with you. You were perfect. I loved you. I was afraid of being a father. You know my childhood - or perceived lack thereof. I was insecure. I was scared to death. I panicked. I didn't talk to anybody about it because I was ashamed. I thought that, if you knew, you would despise me for it. You were always so strong and fearless. I envied you. When your family came and asked me what was going on, I lied. I acted as if I didn't care about you anymore: as if I had lost interest. Nothing could've been further from the truth. I was an idiot. I was such an idiot. I'm sorry for that. I'm so sorry for everything. I won't trouble you anymore. Even if you and your friend want to move in together, I won't trouble you. File divorce papers in the morning. You can keep the house - and the sofa bed - and the mattress - and the comforter - and the dishwasher. You can even keep the cook - and the boy.

Usage of Anybody 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.

On my second day at the school I took the birds out of the furnace. If I was going to sit alone again I didn't want to be bothered. I sat in silence. I found the headman in the evening and asked him again if the villagers knew I had come. He nodded his head and walked away. I figured it didn't matter to me if anybody came. Either way I would get paid.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes the reality of this world no matter where you live

"I was scared," said John. "I didn't want you to get the wrong idea."

"Like what? That you're a killer?"

"Exactly. I didn't kill anybody."

"Why wasn't the check cashed?"

– from “We Need To Talk,” a mystery story featuring a dead man put in a weird position

The day was bright when I left Moscow. I was in such a cheerful mood I had to stop myself from smiling. People were always telling me always to smile. People who never smile themselves. As if there's nothing wrong with a black man who's smiling. A black man who's always smiling looks like a fool like anybody else. I was foolish enough just doing what I was doing. I had to keep my face quiet. The entire bus ride I stared at my reflection in the window. I wanted to look confident without seeming too proud.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes life as we know it, though hopefully it can change

I drove all the way to the beach to find relief. It took hours to get there. I stumbled into the woman's bar by accident. I knew it was around. I heard girls talking about it. I never thought I'd go. I assumed it was a waste of time. I was right. I didn't hook up with anybody. I tried to make conversation a few times. It didn't work. On my way home I got lost. I was so angry. When I saw the sign for the camping ground I had no idea it was for queers. I stopped to ask for directions.

– from “Two Years,” an adult fiction story about a correctional officer at a women's prison

My mother lived in London for less than a year. Her husband dumped her for some cheap hussy from the East End. My mother didn't know anybody in London so she ended up emigrating to the United States. She had some sort of distant cousins in New York who didn't give a rat's ass about her once she got here. She married my father about three weeks after she met him. I think I was already about three weeks old.

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

It's natural to hide dirty things. They're embarrassing. But we need to keep in mind that when we hide things that are difficult, we make them seem dirty when they're really something else entirely. And when we keep things that are easy in plain sight, we make them seem clean when they really aren't. That is dangerous.
