Brilliant! =D>

That aspect/side of my being concurs very much.. through others’ testaments and from personal experience.

French have no weirdness about them whatsoever, only grace and surface and depth, the perfect Greeks. No pathways to this or that - why you, a descendant of the style of Latium, abhor Heidegger.

The French just are, just be.. agree.
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

But wasn't da Vinci arguably weird?

Is weirdness not just comfort with aloneness?

A Frenchman is perhaps not Uncomfortable with alonness, but then, a frenchman is never truly alone.

For the German recipe, a hostility to company is also required, company is willed and precicely for the discomfort. It is sought, desired. And runs to a core so deep it pervades even the lonelyness.

I disagree. A true German is bitter even by his lonesome. But not bitter about being bitter.

Of course, a debauched indulgence in comfort, in absurd sweets and doughy beer, secret depravities, are required to feed this hostility. A revenge taken on the company. Like rape. But more personal. But it is to justify the bitterness, not the other way around. To magnify it, increase it. The other is the greater.

In opposition to Heidegger stands Schopenhauer. He did not seek a fountain, he sought a scalpel. And found it.

I think Spanish fascists were different. I like Guillermo Del Toro's portrayal. A true Spanish fascist never ate a sweet in his life. It was never revenge, it was a much more innocent Apollonianism.

Not for nothing Franco instantly did away with the Falange, the Phallanx. Faggots with fantasies. He would not have the slightest inclination to indulge pretend. Again, no revenge, no hate, he used them when it was useful. But it was just foreign to him.

The only sweets he would have ever ate would be at some stupid function, commemorating whatever but really commemorating him, no, commemorating Apollo. An extremely ceremonial bite off some stupid regional dessert. But not ceremonial as in contrived or forced. With the disdainful aloofness of putting a stamp on an official document.

A German fascist can easily be gay. Homophobia would only exist as an excuse for further revenge. The Spanish had the bonafide stuff. Spanish fascism is really homophobia with a bit of ceremony added on top, just because it would be gay not to have that ceremony.

Only in Spanish can you ask "Are you a faggot?" with absolute innocent curiosity.

As a side note, Indians saved Spanish America from that homophobia. Indians have a much more practical view on homosexuality. "Hey, if that's the hole that's around."

People like to idealize the 60's, the 80's, the 90's now, even the 50's.

I know it sounds crazy. But I like the 70's.

Exactly man, thats the whole point. Well said. A frenchman is never truly alone.
No one is as naturally himself when alone as a German.
Hence, German Christmasses.
I dare your heart to listen to German radio at Christmas.

Lol, no I definitely disagree there.

I would say the exact opposite.
Maybe one needs to have heard naked German trees clack-clacking against each other in the winter wind to read Heidegger without side-effects.

They put sugar in their coffee though.

Against Franco stands Picasso, at least as hard, much more powerful.

A Spanish homosexual has just completely surrendered to it, lives in catacombs which he decorates with Spanish verve, knows may other gays and basically enjoys the shit out of it, even though lamenting in self-pity about his asshole brother. A German gay person, thats harder. He is already alone. Where is he gonna dig another hole?

Dunno, video that came up following the Korg one, kind of fun to hear what he gets out of those ancient machineries.

Im FROM the 70s. I cant hate.

That Eddie Murphy song is excellent. Discovered it in 2013 or so, got me through some crappy afternoons.

Rehab seems to have as its advantage a scarcity in uninteresting people. Lot of good stories you brought out of there. What was that thread we made, "for the drunks" back in the cave. I cant remember.

Top notch people. Indeed, the one good thing about rehab is all the crazy fucks in it. It also includes a number of despicable excuses for human, but those are easily kept in line in a good rehab.

I might look that thread up.

I didn't mean that as a blanket statement for all Germans. Entirely.

Btw nothing but contempt for Franco. All that bs belies a disgusting softness. And even flacidness.

Nothing soft or flacid about Big P.

But that was hilariously accurate about Spanish gay. In a real way, possibly the freeest gay. Precicely because the homophobia is entirely honest, entirely innocent. The space is created.
