Thread Name: Confession: I stabbed George Harrison
Subject: RE: Confession: I stabbed George Harrison
There are no longer "dancers," the possessed. The cleavage of men into actor and spectators is the central fact of our time. We are obsessed with heroes who live for us and whom we punish. If all the radios and televisions were deprived of their sources of power, all books and paintings burned tomorrow, all shows and cinemas closed, all the arts of vicarious existence...

We are content with the "given" in sensation's quest. We have been metamorphosized from a mad body dancing on hillsides to a pair of eyes staring in the dark.
