Subject: A new look at Rhetoric

The connection between small groups of people interacting and the influence of these groups on a larger audience can be understood in terms of “fantasy themes.” Fantasy themes are the units of exchange, the negotiated currency that connects alienated people to each other. Fantasy themes help people to bridge their alienation and to build a communal and thus communicative consciousness. When amplified, this consciousness has the potential to spread. As Bormann explains, “Group fantasizing correlates with individual fantasizing and extrapolates to speaker audience fantasizing and to the dream merchants of the mass media”.

The amplification of interpersonal processes that takes place in the mass media involves what is traditionally known as (see Bush) “rhetoric.” Amplification involves transcendence and influence, structure and strategy. As Richard Buchanan explains, “Amplification is the device for extending the scope of rhetoric from words to actions, thoughts, and things”. It invites response, integration, questioning, and resistance.

The utility of shared fantasies in rhetorical and cultural interactions results from Bales's observation that within zero-history (Republicans) groups (congregations of participants with no prior interaction or localized cultural past), there emerges a common culture and group cohesion. By chaining into the fantasy the members gain motivation. Since some of the characters in the fantasies are good people doing laudable things, the group collectively identifies in symbolic terms proper codes of conduct yadda yadda.

Re: what I was eluding to....

by mork (03.27.05 09:35 pm)

...was a kind of co-opting of the modernist tenet to “shock the bourgoisie”. It seems that with an artist who is as self consciously concerned with art history as Currin, the wisest artistic tactic is to 'become the bourgouisie', who are art history's inhierited guardians. The shocks come easier then and function more as a narrowing of the circle of reference (mannerist satire as homage) than as any form of renunciation. You still want the society matrons you mock to buy your work. It's a decisive gambit, played out in life as much as in art, that depends on the museums that would house his narrow and omissive extention of painting to still be standing long after his much sated life.

I dont engage in shadenfraude(?) for its own sake.

Re: Old Ladies' Night

by Jareth (03.28.05 09:01 am)

also i mean that there is little to no intellectual os historical inquary going into the whole thing... for instance, lets take that gallery flier of a magazine artforum, you know when there “sceanster” line opens with

“Daniel Buren's exhibition ”Eye of the Storm: Works in Situ“ opened Thursday night at the Guggenheim, with a three-tiered scale of exclusivity: ultra-privée at 6:00, when director Thomas Krens made his opening remarks, hailing this as a ”great night for France;“ 7:30 (my ticket); and 9:00 for la foule. It seemed that the entire French art world—or at least that of a certain generation—had turned out for the US apotheosis of un trésor national. The charming Lucien Terras served as my chaperone through Frogville, introducing me to Pompidou director Alfred Pacquement and Buren himself, who was attired in a black-velvet Mao jacket—a sartorial echo, perhaps, of the les soixante-huitards? ”I don't know who is left in Paris,“ Terras remarked. ”They're all here.“”

Is art a language or is there more going on? If we take language in the broad sense as meaning “the ordering of information” then we can say that when I am painting I am ordering information on the canvas and therefore I am “communicating.”

‘Montoya sidelined for five weeks’
Tue 29 Mar, 2:53 PM
The McLaren driverslipped during the match, falling and hitting his shoulder. After undergoing tests it was discovered that he'd injured his scapula, which is vital for the movement of the shoulder.
The injury has a standard convalescence time of five weeks minimum and during the first three the arm is completely immobilized.
Advertisement

However, should the injury fail to heal properly, Montoya may have to undergo surgery, which would keep him sidelined for at least five months.
McLaren will announce on Thursday whether Montoya will be able to race in Bahrain, but according to the Spanish media, Montoya has returned to Miami, where his parents and wife Connie live, and will be replaced by McLaren test driver Pedro de la Rosa for the Bahrain GP.
The Spaniard has been given the seat ahead of fellow tester Alex Wurz as the Austrian is too tall to fit into the new MP4-20.

Villeneuve to use video game before Bahrain
Tue 29 Mar, 3:54 PM
LONDON (Reuters) - Canadian Jacques Villeneuve is hoping to get up to speed for Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix with the help of a Formula One video game.
The 1997 world champion missed the inaugural race at Bahrain's Sakhir circuit last year after being dropped by BAR at the end of 2003.
Advertisement

Now making a comeback with Sauber, after three races at Renault late last season, the Canadian will be one of five drivers racing for the first time in the Middle East.
“I haven't seen it but I know that it's dry, sunny and sandy so visually it must be very interesting,” he said of the circuit in a team preview on Tuesday.
“Talking with other drivers, they say that the track is fun to drive but I didn't see the race on TV last year so I don't really know what to expect.
”I am also going to play with an F1 video game that includes this track to get used to the layout, but I will really have to find out when I get there."
Formula One drivers, particularly rookies, regularly familiarise themselves with grand prix circuits by playing computer games.
Sunday's race will be Sauber's 200th grand prix but Villeneuve has had a disappointing start with the Swiss-based team, finishing 13th in Australia and skidding off in Malaysia.
His Brazilian team mate Felipe Massa came 10th in both races, beating Villeneuve in Australia despite starting from the back on a full fuel load.
There has already been speculation that Sauber could seek to replace the Canadian with BAR's British test driver Anthony Davidson.
Briton David Coulthard suggested last week that Villeneuve could ‘walk away or be encouraged to do so’ unless the situation at Sauber improved soon.

It's not bad except for all the squealing.

Deliveryman stuck in elevator for days
New York man rescued Tuesday after disappearing Friday

Happens a lot in this town, you slide in between floors and boom, youre in Narnia speaking Aslan and theres no food or water except vitamin fortified cotton candy or swamp rats. The swamp rats are pretty tasty, but most people go for the pink stuff.

So once people doze off, thats when the serpent that represents something or other, ask Joseph Campbell.

MOYERS: So when we dream, we are fishing in some vast ocean of mythology that—
CAMPBELL: ...that goes down and down and down. You can get all mixed up with complexes, you know, things like that, but really, as the Polynesian saying goes, you are then “standing on a whale fishing for minnows.” We are standing on a whale. The ground of being is the ground of our being, and when we simply turn outward, we see all of these little problems here and there. But, if we look inward, we see that we are the source of them all.

Whats funny is that you don't really have to eat in the nether realm, especially not pomegranites. Not even one seed.

You might think the swamp rats are ok to eat, but thats a lie, youre stuck under the Yum Yum tree and the serpents swallowing you and as the days go by, water flowing underground.

So you accidently got some fur in your mouth and youre stuck because technically you ate a rat and youre arguing with the gate keeper about how you dont eat rat raw, duh, you cook it and burn all the fur off. Then you have to prove that you can make fire so you do, with alacrity, and its all fine after that, youre invited up to the big house and youre sitting with the lions and tigers and then a zebra goes by and you realize theres enough water for everyone, but not a drop to drink.

So youre having your tenth rat, wrapped in mud and thrown on the fire to cook in its own juices and youre praying for a cup.

The cup is an illusion, but you dont know that, so it never occurs to you to use your hands, until in a flash of inspiration you dive in and its as if you are a sponge, your cup runneth over and they pull you from the elevator none the worse for the wear except for a habit of curtseying grotesquely as if you are trying to surf some cosmic subway car.

A boozy night on the town turned tragic for two Bronx college students yesterday when they took a joyride on the roof of an elevated subway train - and smacked into a metal bridge.

Youre looking for the way back really. Its all in that Oceanic consciousness somewhere, breathing.

Again, with the feeling

I was in a persisten vegitative stae
Neither here nor there
my feeding tube was removed
And I was hungry
But I couldnt tell anyone

I was afraid
What if I got what I wanted
and had to eat

Would I ever be hungry again?
Would I like eating?

These are not questions I could ask.

I can’t remember anything
Can’t tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel the scream
This terrible silence stops with me

Now that the war is through with me
I’m waking up I can not see
That there's not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please god,wake me

Back in the war it’s much too real
In pumps life that I must kill
But can’t look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I lived

Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life out from me

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please god,wake me

Now the world is gone I’m just one
Oh god,help me hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God help me

Darkness imprisoning me
All I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

Landmine has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell

charisma class isn't that much fun...
but you can set one up your self
DIY Charisma
get rid of all money and things
wonder out into the wilderness
once your nice and starving and freezing
look for strangers to give you
food- shelter- clothing
The first person you meet recognises that
you are in training and denies you
You play too much on their sympathy
You try again with the second person and
they tell you what a pathetic fool you are
By the third instance you are desparate and toying with the idea of adopting a cloying strategy
But alas the third person is very happy and healthy and rejects you
By your forth attempt you start to turn to
the charismatic energy within you ....
it ain't easy.

How do you do? I don't think that we've met.
My name is Ian and I'm from Minor Threat.
You know I tell them, usually, to be at their best.
Catch me in town after every set. Yea, yea.

We don't care. We don't pose.
We'll steel your money. We'll steel your show.
I got your money and I feel fine.
A couple of dollars and realy good time.
Well, you know I'm gonna be alright
with the money I'm making off of you tonight. Sucker!
We don't care. We don't pose.
We'll steel your money. We'll steel your show.

Know something? The problem with money is I want more.
Let's raise the price tour. Starting tonight, 3,000 or four.
Then we'll make a million when we go on tour.
Yeah, that's the way I'm gonna think about it.

We don't care. We don't pose.
We'll steel your money. We'll steel your show.
And that's the way it is, man dog eat dog.
I'm taking a walk on the yellow brick road.
I only walk where the bricks are made of gold.
My mind and body are the only things that I've sold.
I needed the money cause I'm getting old.
Right? That's the way it goes isn't it? Yea?We don't care. We don't pose.
We'll steel your money. We'll steel your show.
Yeah, we don't care. We don't pose.
We'll steel your money. We'll steal your show.
That's the way it is in this world.
Right? Isn't that right? Boy you had us pegged all along? Damn.

There's no place like home. So, where am I?
