Everybody, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to consider the potential of reinforcing his glorious Fiction Corpus with a history of contemporary art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the viability of employing English as everyone's second language. I don't believe in the pleasureless blueprint with which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Boosting a person's skillfulness with a language isn't like developing a hotter kiln. A language is not merely a tool that you can learn to use with a greater amount of precision. A living tongue cannot be divorced from the prevailing culture 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 pupils to recite English is to rob them of its cultural context. A worthy instructor must find a method of introducing it; the perceptive pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of writing of varying scope and consistency. This corpus may contain anything from a book about literature to some famous short stories translated into modern English. I burned many candles laboring on my "unimpressive" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar type 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 crafted a million words and I have sorted them, reshaping them - not merely to teach a language but to reveal 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

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.

Being from America, all I had to do in Europe was turn on the radio to hear an American song. All I had to do was walk into a movie theater to see an American movie. To be understood all I had to do was speak English. Being from Poland, she couldn't stand listening to the radio for all the political nonsense being bandied about. She didn't like watching American movies because she claimed they all ended the same way. She didn't want to speak English with me because she not only wanted to say things correctly but she wanted to say them her way and nobody had ever succeeded in teaching her how. I desperately wanted to understand. She wanted to be understood.

6,000 miles. One car. One tent. We started learning how to listen. We started learning how to open up. We started cooperating. Even when we were angry, even when it was so difficult that it didn't seem like it would turn out well, we stuck it out. We completed the trip and we came back happy. We had beaten the devil on the road. Back home more devils were waiting to abuse us. More anger. More fear. More sadness. This time we were prepared. This time we had each other and we could harken back to the joy and the trust and the suprise that 6,000 miles had created. We could remember what it was like to live in one tent.

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 Everybody

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 everybody in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Everybody 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.

"Everybody does: don't be a moron."

"You have no right to judge me."

"Yes, I do: what are you talking about?"

"You don't understand."

Verses 402-405 from the chapter called Adolescence

Americans were not almighty; they were not invincible. They were not powerless: they were powerful. They were a fortress: a living fortress. Fortress America! The only people who knew what was going on were the people inside the fortress; everybody outside the fortress was waiting to find out: there was no way to spy from the outside. You had to be in the fortress, and so many people were left out.

Verse 84 from the chapter called Childhood

In the first grade, I told Jesus to give himself a middle initial like everybody else. That way, there would be no embarrassing questions. He did it. Then, everyone began saying where he or she was born: specifically, which hospital. I told Jesus to say 'Bethesda' like everybody else, but he said no: he didn't want to lie: that would be bad. When the teacher asked him, "In which hospital were you born, Jesus?" He said, "Poland."

Verse 102 from the chapter called Childhood

"You couldn't receive Communion in your hands - at least, not in Lower Silesia - that's what the Lower Silesian archbishop said. My grandmother always complained because her teeth were falling out. She was worried that, at some point, she would end up completely toothless and quite incapable of receiving Communion successfully on the lips. When she was down to three teeth, she went to the parish priest and asked whether or not she could receive Communion in her hands: like everybody else on the planet. The priest said that the archbishop would have to agree to it - otherwise, no - toothless or not. You see, my grandmother was going to have to wait six months for a new prosthetic - in the meanwhile, she would be toothless.

Verse 679 from the chapter called Security

"He says that miners have always been very superstitious, very secretive, and very protective. He says that they were the brains behind the Revolution - just like everybody else. But nobody knows that. Nobody can say that for sure. The Revolution just happened - mostly because people were sick and tired of my grandfather - that's all."

Usage of Everybody 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 remember counting back the number of days, and, using up all ten digits, I asked Grandmother if the apples could be refrigerated. She said I was perfectly free to do whatever necessary, but as long as that cherry branch was still dead, I was going to have to wait till next year. Everybody laughed; Indiana took the opportunity to speak.

ANDY: Yes! It must be soap in my eyes, Olympia. Give me a moment: I'll try to wash it out.

OLYMP: ...

ANDY: But, I was trying to say: I know you're sad, Olympia. Everybody has to be sad sometimes - even in heaven. Did you know that? Sometimes, people are sad in heaven.

OLYMP: Mama says that people in heaven are always happy.

Nik: I understand. It's not for everybody. I don't know where else to send ya. Don't go to those American bars: those places rip you off. They tell you to buy champagne. Forget it. You end up paying through the roof for nothing.

LUKA: What about the street?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 21, Anal Sex, Paragraphs 36-37

And they said: no cheating. But I knew: because Albert was coming into Romania, the part where I live, to visit his family, and they were good friends of my family. They were very close to us. And he was always coming. But that time I knew that he wanted to take me back to Budapest with him. It was very funny: because also, on the day of Luca, we start making a chair from wood. Everybody is making this chair. And we have to keep making the chair and we cannot finish until the day before Christmas - almost like the apple. So when we finish, we put the chair inside the church. And if during the midnight mass, somebody steps on top of the chair, they are supposed to be able to see who is the witch. So Albert, he stepped on the chair, and he looked around, and everybody was looking at him, and then he looked at me, and he smiled, and he said: she is the witch, because she has bewitched me. And he asked me to marry him. Right there: standing on the chair. Everybody was waiting for me to say yes. And I purposely waited a long time. My mother: she whisper, he is crazy. And I said yes. I said really loud yes."

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 21, Giving and Receiving a Look, Paragraph 2, Clauses 7-25

I ran upstairs to get my car keys; everybody was standing around in the kitchen. You asked me what was going on. "I'm taking Indiana home," I said. "Get her coat." But you were confused. "Why don't you take her home in her car? I'll follow behind." I agreed, but Nike said: "Allow me. After all, it's your party." The two of you argued.

On my way down, I crossed Indiana coming up the stairs. I told her you were getting her coat. I knew she was coming upstairs to apologize. There wasn't much time.

Tae had trouble concentrating on the argument. The man of average build was standing between two women. One was young. She had square shoulders. The other was middle-aged. Her breasts were enormous.

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: Fletcher!

FLETCHER: That's right. You were a Jackson to begin with. Then you became a Christian. Now you're a Jackson again. My mistake.

ALICE: What was his old name?

FLETCHER: Alexander Smith.

LESBIAN: It's a good thing he changed it. There are plenty of Smiths.

FLETCHER: And not enough Christians.

LUKE: It must be tough havin' an island full of your rellies: bunch of stickybeaks.

LESBIAN: I suppose it came as a great relief when they named a New Zealander their prime suspect.

MS. JACKSON: It ended a frightening period for all of us. Everybody had been suspicious of everybody else.

FLETCHER: Some of us were firm believers that it had to be an outsider.

– ACT I, lines 102-111

FLETCHER: I didn't really care for him.

GREY GOOSE: Tom the anesthesiologist?

KOKOMO: He was funny.

GREY GOOSE: Douglas the airline pilot?

FLETCHER: At least he wasn't a doctor.

GREY GOOSE: Joe the Gynecologist?

KOKOMO: He made me smile.

GREY GOOSE: What about the oral and maxillofacial surgeon? The computer information systems manager? You were nothing before me. I made you.

FLETCHER: Kokomo will have to wear a burqa for the rest of her life around here. This was a Sunday operation before he came and screwed it all up. Do you know why you kept getting looks in town? It wasn't what he did; it was what he said. He had everybody on Norfolk thinking you had hired the best piece of faffy this side of Hawai'i. Some of them thought that you were in on it - that you were behind it all.

GREY GOOSE: This is some kind of gratitude.

– ACT II, lines 451-460

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.

– ACT II, line 356

ALICE: How old were they?

FLETCHER: Seven.

MS. JACKSON: You're taking after your father.

FLETCHER: Father never worried about getting himself extorted. Everybody already seemed to know whom he was - what's the word?

ALICE: Rooting.

FLETCHER: Thank you, Alice. Rooting.

LUKE: We're gonna have you speakin' Strine before we leave.

FLETCHER: With wowsers like my mother, it won't be enough.

MS. JACKSON: What, may I ask, is a wowser?

LUKE: A spoilsport.

– ACT I, lines 127-136

GREY GOOSE: I've waited long enough, woman. I deserve an answer.

MS. JACKSON: I will not answer you.

ALICE: Why not?

GREY GOOSE: She's guilty.

MS. JACKSON: I've done nothing wrong.

GREY GOOSE: Swear to it.

ALICE: There's no reason not to tell the truth.

GREY GOOSE: Unless you're a rat.

ALICE: Remember what I told you. There are three things which everybody is owed: honesty, gratitude, and remorse. As my grandmother taught me, one must say, 'Thank you,' and 'I'm sorry,' and, by gosh, one has to mean it. If you've had cause to hurt somebody, you should tell that person you're sorry and you'll try to make sure it never happens again. Unless you know it will - in which case, you recognize that something is difficult. If it's something to which your partner is contributing, you make a resolution to cooperate on that. Eventually, things work out. If you've done nothing wrong, you thank your partner for his interest, humbly deny any involvement, and proceed to send him off on his merry way. I took marriage lessons with Luke for a year. They were quite helpful.

MS. JACKSON: Thank you.

Albert asked me to marry him - right then and there.

It didn't matter. I decided a long time ago. I stood up. I tried not to smile. It didn't last long. I said, 'Yes.' It happened that very morning. We were married on Christmas Day."

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.

Michal's Sales Pitch
Lot 1: Silesian Handicrafts

  1. T-shirt fundraiser for sale

    Handcrafted t-shirt fundraiser for sale.

    Last T-Shirt with the logo that I designed. Pointer

    From a set of, I believe, twenty produced by Margo and given out to a portion of the last 20 women to finish the 20th anniversary Fiat Road Race in Bielsko-Biała, cf. the movie. This is the last one left in it's original packaging and my supporters - like the poor women of Bielsko - are going to have to fight for it.
