Probably not, and it depends on the size of your tongue.

I knew this one guy, had a tongue the size of a foot, and a foot the size of a hand... we called him handball mcfootface.

I'm with the owl on this one. Who the hell is patient enough to lick their way through?

Give me a bit of sucking, then an exploratory bite or two. See how it responds, you know? You might be surprised by the reaction.

An air of mystery surrounds Bablicon, and it goes much deeper than band members naming themselves Blue Hawaii, the Dimisher and Marta Tennae. For one thing, it's just about impossible to figure out what the hell they're up to. They have one member of Neutral Milk Hotel (drummer Tennae, who is known as Jeremy Barnes outside of Bablicon); other members have a background in the Chicago improv scene. Together, they are making music. Not rock music, not electronic music, not folk music, not jazz music, though, at various points, they might be doing any one of those things. Just music. Any modifier you might attach to the word limits it, which would simply not do. No limitations, no boundaries-- this seems to be the Bablicon creed.

After last year's The Orange Tapered Moon-- which found the band making smart use of electronics in addition to channeling the emotion of Albert Ayler and the surrealism of Beefheart-- Bablicon return in 2001 with a dense album seemingly inspired by silent film scores, German cabaret, and vaudeville, while still incorporating noisy interludes and assorted indescribable fragments.

Many of the tunes on the first half of A Flat Inside a Fog, The Cat That Was a Dog are dominated by piano, with a wide variety of instruments outlining dissonant, haunting melodies that seem remembered from a flickering black-and-white past. Strings supplied by the "Alien Orchestra," and even greater deployment of multi-tracked harmonized reed lines, makes this band seem much larger than it actually is. On this record, Bablicon are like the house band from a nickel cinema learning how to incorporate field recordings and free jazz into their sound.

But the strangest thing is that these tunes, many of which seem to be working in a long-forgotten tradition, don't feel nostalgic or tied to any particular era. Though the music sounds only a little like Tom Waits, Bablicon have a similar knack for using "old" elements and in ways that the originators never could have imagined. Kurt Weill never had the opportunity to run an organ through a distortion pedal. W.C. Handy died before lungs-out blowing became as valid as melody. Richard Strauss never wrote charts under the influence of LSD. And so on.

As on The Orange Tapered Moon, The Cat That Was a Dog opens with a vocal track called "Blue Hawaii," which recalls an old showtune. "Traveling" could be a Gershwin interlude played on piano, bass, clarinet and soprano saxophone, with the feel of the old south, sweaty and evocative. "Animals" is the first track to feature the Alien Orchestra, possibly a string quartet recorded to sound distant and thin. Opening with field recordings of a train station, "Saumar/Paris/Tea Towels" becomes a bouncy sax instrumental, moves back to atmospheric sound, and then tacks on another brilliant section of Aylerian folk played on c melody and soprano sax and oboe by the Dimisher.

Perhaps sensing that they had too many musical ideas to stuff into the 36 minutes of last year's record, A Flat Inside a Fog is 65 minutes long with lots of weird experimental tracks that some might describe as "filler," but which I term "the good stuff." "Smell of Ovoustic" is heavily treated tapes of a clarinet, sounding like an early synthesizer recording meant to mimic the sound of deep space. Another brief highlight is "Ape Hall," 32 seconds of manipulated orchestra recordings-- perhaps the sound of an early talkie being munched in a projector.

For all the cinematic references, it's true that A Flat Inside a Fog works best in a single sitting, heard to start to finish. These fragments and detours start to make sense when lined up in a row, as the mood crests and falls with the incredibly varied music. Bablicon may remain an enigma, but the music speaks for itself rather well.

Cornbread is a generic name for any number of quick breads (a bread leavened by an acid-base reaction, rather than by yeast) containing cornmeal

Native Americans were using ground corn for cooking long before European explorers arrived in the New World. Cornbread was discovered by Europeans during the European exploration of North America. Europeans who had to use the local resources for food fashioned cornmeal into cornbread. Cornbread was popular during the American Civil War because it was very cheap and could be made in many different sizes and forms. It could be fashioned into high-rising, fluffy loaves or simply fried for a fast meal.

Cornbread is a popular item in soul food enjoyed by many people for its texture and scent. Cornbread can be baked, fried or, rarely, steamed. Steamed cornbreads are mushy, chewier and more akin to cornmeal pudding than what most consider to be traditional cornbread. Corn Bread can also be baked into corn cakes.

Cornbread is a common bread in United States cuisine, particularly associated with the South and Southwest, as well as being a traditional staple for populations where wheat bread was prohibitively expensive. In some parts of the South it is crumbled into a glass of cold buttermilk and eaten with a spoon, and it is also widely eaten with barbecue and chili con carne. In rural areas of the southern United States in the mid 20th century cornbread, accompanied by pinto beans (often called soup beans in this context) or honey, was a common lunch for poor children. It is still a common side dish, often served with homemade butter, chunks of onion or scallions. Cornbread crumbs are also used in some poultry stuffings; cornbread stuffing is particularly associated with Thanksgiving turkeys.
In the United States, Northern and Southern corn bread are different because they generally use different types of corn meal and varying degrees of sugar and eggs.[1] A preference for sweetness and adding sugar or molasses can be found in both regions, but saltier tastes are sometimes more common in the South, and thus favor the addition of frying the bread with such additions as cracklins. Sometimes, cornbread is crumbled and served with cold milk similar to cold cereal. In Texas, the Mexican influence has spawned a hearty cornbread made with fresh or creamed corn kernels, jalapeño peppers and topped with shredded cheese.

Before I give my official consent, I have just one last thing to say on the matter:

After the start of the Second Punic War, the Carthaginian general Hannibal boldly crossed the Alps and invaded Italy. Winning battles at Trebia (218 BC) and Lake Trasimene (217 BC), Hannibal moved south plundering the countryside and working to make Rome's allies defect to Carthage's side. In the spring of 216 BC, Hannibal seized the Roman supply depot at Cannae in southeast Italy. With Hannibal sitting astride Rome's supply lines, the Roman Senate called for action. Assembling a massive army of nearly 87,000 men, the Consuls Gaius Terentius Varro and Lucius Aemilius Paullus advanced to face the Carthaginians.

The two armies met along the banks of the Aufidus River on July 31 and began skirmishing. On August 2, Varro and Paullus formed up their army for battle with their infantry densely packed in the center and the cavalry on the wings. The Consuls planned to use the infantry to quickly break the Carthaginian lines. Opposite, Hannibal placed his cavalry and most veteran infantry on the wings and his lighter infantry in the center. As the two sides advanced, Hannibal's center moved forward, causing their line to bow in a crescent shape. On the Hannibal's left, his cavalry charged forward and routed the Roman horse.

To the right, Hannibal's cavalry was engaged with that of Rome's allies. Having destroyed their opposite number on the left, the Carthaginian cavalry rode behind the Roman army and assaulted the allied cavalry from the rear. Under attack from two directions, the allied cavalry fled the field. As the infantry began to engage, Hannibal had his center slowly retreat, while ordering the infantry on the wings to hold their position. The tightly packed Roman infantry continued to advance after the retreating Carthaginians, unaware of the trap that was about to be sprung.

You may now lock this thread.

Zones of Opacity?



Becoming clandestine, or more accurately the impetus towards clandestinity, could be such an attempt to escape subjectification as a productive form. Agamben writes that the individual can be ‘the place of multiple processes of subjectification' and argues for a ‘profanation' of apparatuses through which they could be made common and returned to non-instrumental use.19 Becoming (in)visible, the refusal of identity, could be one such counter-appropriation of apparatuses. Strands within contemporary insurrectionist anarchism, such as the Crimethinc, Ex-workers Collective and the Invisible Committee view clandestinity as both a tactic to simply avoid identification and a way to articulate a refusal of spectacular biopolitics and initiate a different form of (de)subjectification predicated upon becoming anonymous and imperceptible; the refusal of the face as spectacular identity. As the Invisible Committee stated recently - in The Coming Insurrection - ‘Flee visibility. Turn anonymity into an offensive position.'20

Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

The most visible sign of such an anonymity, at least in anti-capitalist circles, has been the various black blocs that have formed a masked, tactical presence in most large scale mobilisations since the 1980s. Much of this anonymity is necessary since as the N30 Communiqué put it after the 1999 protests in Seattle:


Quote:
Let's face it (with or without a mask) - we aren't living in a democracy right now. If this week has not made it plain enough, let us remind you - we are living in a police state.



Not to mention the emphasis on property damage for which the black bloc is fairly infamous. Without getting into the ethics of smashing windows, the black bloc highlights the uneasy equivocation of a publicly illegalist clandestine politics between tactical necessity and the potential (re)production of a vanguardist political identity. Sometimes, judging by the number of images the tactic of the black bloc accumulates, it can become appropriated into the spectacle to be consumed like any other lifestyle. Even so, the black bloc suggests the tactical advantages of anonymity and the related refusal of the faciality of capitalism as well as suggesting ‘what a body can do.' As art collective Claire Fontaine says


The term black bloc alludes to a manifestation of desire for collective opacity, a will not to appear and to materialise affects that are increasingly hard to take.21


Maybe the illegalist masks of the black bloc shade into an exodus from the quantitative commodified identities of biopolitical capitalism. This mask has two faces. One is aristocratic and disdainful of those unable and unwilling to wear it, and the other is anonymous and generic - it could be anyone.

Hot Sleep: The Worthing Chronicle (1979) is a science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card set in the Worthing series. Although it is currently out of print, Card's novel The Worthing Chronicle (1983) covers some of the same ground.

The book follows Jason Worthing, also known as Jazz, who is a boy growing up on Capitol, the capital planet of the Empire. Jas has "the swipe", which is a genetic trait that allows for telepathy. The swipe is feared in the Empire, so those who possess it are executed. After being found out as a swipe, Jas tries to escape, which leads to his capture by Abner Doon, who helps him rise to prominence as a space pilot. Eventually, Abner sends Jason away as the head of a colony so that the swipe would become more widespread, but when his ship reaches the planet, he is attacked, and the memories of all but one of the three-hundred eleven colonists are destroyed and two-third of the colonist are killed or damaged beyond awakening. Jason prevails, however, leading to the survival of the colony, which he visits every several years, being on Somec the rest of the time. Eventually, Abner Doon comes and sees how Jason has done, and after Doon leaves, Jason takes his ship to the bottom of the ocean.

The title arises from the operation of somec, the life extension drug forming the foundation of the interstellar Empire. Somec creates an unbearable, torturous burning sensation throughout the body while pushing the patient to suspended animation. However, the somec process exterminates the user's memory, and so these memories are recorded and stored separately shortly before they go under, to be returned to the body after they have awakened, and so the memory of the process itself cannot be retained. Thus, each somec patient experiences the panic of burning hot sleep "for the first time" (as far as their memory goes) no matter how many times they have taken somec before.
