Let me start by saying that the creator is the ultimate consumer, as the consumer/ed unites in this creator, forging a greater depth of consumption (or consumerifficness) than what we traditionally think of as "consumer" i.e., the mere consumer of the work (in this case, poetry, or broader, art), the viewer/listener/reader.
When creators busy themselves in the creation method -- the word 'creation' isn't enough, as more of a function procedure is in action....we know what we do and how we get to do it through method, a rhythm method -- the consumption-work takes form as (1) idea, then (2) writing, (3) composing, then (4) editing, and finally, as (5) offering, or an end result. We consume the idea when/as we commodify it, writing it down, making it 'useful', inasmuch as in written form it can then be implemented. It becomes instrument. We consume it on each of these levels. [Therefore] by the time our book comes out, we've consumed in four or five different fields before freeing the result. Calling the simple act of standing in front of an art piece "consumption" then seems somewhat ridiculous or, at best, tritely inaccurate.
Let me finish by saying that the creator is the greatest of all consumers. Let me finish by saying that space exploration is possible.

The threat of M.I.A. being turned into just another "female" musician, in contrast with the forceful author of politically-charged work -- regardless of gender -- is more evident with the release of Kala. Remember, however trendy politically-charged lyrics might be, and however nichy, M.I.A. has refined this trend. Whereas Arular was noteworthy for exalting a unique and raw female perspective, Kala comes off as Fiona Apple-gone-grime. Even violent lyrics on Kala seem caricatured now. The insidiousness of stressing the feminine in M.I.A. is the same tactic that "deflects" and renders her individuality moot and her politics into parody. This is clearly the market's/record industry's attempt at turning M.I.A. into one more vulnerable, twee and harmless female performer.

El voseo "occurs" when, instead of using the Tú form to "tutear" someone, you refer to them as "vos" and conjugate verbs accordingly (see below). While Tú is accepted and understood as the familiar "you," saying "vos" is a more familiar tone than Tú, as the former pronoun and resulting conjugation indicates a shared historical, national and cultural background, i.e., The Rioplatense addresses another Rioplatense using "vos" because they've both grown up using "vos."
This 'you' form bears little relation to the devilish vosotros of continental Spanish, and seems to be a closer relative to the você of Brazilian Portuguese (although in this case, the Brazilians have all but eliminated use of the Tú conjugation, having only four conjugations in use: 1st person singular, eu; 2nd person singular,você; 1st person plural, nós; and 2nd person plural, vocês.)
As a different conjugation in the second person, el voseo doesn't vary that much from the Tú form of regular verbs, and is formed by accenting the final vowel in the present indicative 2nd person conjugation. So, in the case of the verb TOMAR, instead of saying, "Tú tomas," we say, "Vos tomás." [Irregulars being somewhat trickier: "decir" varies from "Tú dice" to "Vos decís." Querer, "Tú quieres" = "Vos querés."]
From what I can tell --I haven't seen an example that contradicts this-- the "as/es/is" ending is always accented formally with accent/tilde. El voseo is also used in the imperative/subjunctive, the Tú form of "lo que quieras" (as you wish) becomes "lo que querás."
What thrills me about this dialectical difference is that it represents what I consider to be migration of language trends with no equal migration of populations to account for the trend. I'm wondering if migrating Sephardic Jews brought el voseo from Spain to Argentina, only to then have it spread to the countries on the linked map (below). But how? According to Wikipedia, el voseo enjoys a creeping effect, like linguistic capillary action: it takes hold in the country little by litte, only later being employed by the media and advertisers. "Vos difrutás Coca Cola." If migration is related to the spread of el voseo, then it seems somewhat geographically arbitrary. These "paises voseantes," or --I'm making this up-- vos-using countries," can be found here on the map, the blue countries are those with voseo predominance. In green, countries where it is featured as a regionalism or non-mainstream custom (Wikipedia.org). In theory, in light of the vos phenomenon currently spreading in appeal in Nicaragua (Wikipedia) and being employed by the media there, el voseo offers evidence of a Spanish language trend passed from country to country by globalized media outlets and marketing.

Not unlike the bodily process equivalent to a physiological or biological “what the fuck?” in order to save itself, shocking an audience creates a space for salvation, a rhetorical cul-de-sac anything can be drawn from. The piñata still intact, a quiet frame the moment after being shocked: Huzzah! We can still react and language works, stilmuli work. Turn and listen or turn and fight.
Statements that elicit shock, if unexpected (through timing or an ethical breach or variance), do so partly because the language is working to that end. The delivery of the message – how it gets to us, why it was made, etc— becomes obscured by the shock we feel in the face of such a statement. The moment when our language either asserts or submits itself over or to the message becomes an interesting space for the poetic to occupy.

Fonseca, who's considered Brazil's Thomas Pynchon -- indeed, the two are close friends -- looks like Foucault's dad.
So, how much does market dictate translation? The "duller" the translation (by this "duller" I include any work that fails to provoke or "push" the reader ahead, or any of the other reasons --legion-- why each work can be called successful), the broader the audience, the less audience members are offended...?
[Doesn't wider appeal seem to indicate a space occupied by family films or classics? Are classics that subversive, or is there subversive potential merely forgotten?]
Above, translation is imperfection not only as a middle voice blemishes from sender to receiver, creating a new work (nod to Nicanor Parra), but as representative decay between various countries'/groups'/societies' social or artistic "taste" or aesthetic (e.g., Anti-Pinochet poetry has very little relevance here...). The "historical" and locative not only serve as marker, but as market: Che is recognized as a modern call to action in Latin America now only due to the relevance of Left-wing democracies in the region today, and remains a marketing tool in North America in both the regional (locative) and historical sense. No "Che" here.
So, these translations mark a nostalgia for the time when we ourselves wrote innocently about flowers and plums (Neruda). Translation gives these readers permission to reread their own turf, in usually a voice that no longer represents a threat.
Thus, more insidiously, translation often stands as the gateway of official corruption (Neruda coffee mugs, CDs, T-shirts, etc): officially, it's easier to make the exotic appeal to a larger audience because it doesn't concern us. I've never eaten a plum on Isla Negra.
Perhaps, as foreign art, the exotic work cannot be taken as obscene? Nudity during Carnival is, in context, tradition and much less offensive or threatening the college girl, breast baring nudity during Mardi Gras. This tendency applies to art, as well. Work that isn't socially/societally relevant commits a lesser degree of obscenity.
Do we enjoy poetry in translation to bolster our love poems' relevance or because these poems we now have in translation are indeed irrelevant?

Lame duck Dredd of the future dads, Charles Bronson babushka
Chuck bright future, Chuck light
Chuck tools the installation of the future
Of missile defense shields for his above ground
And doesn’t mind glasses
If you've got a death wish, I've got a remedy in
You stole my gloomy onion
It's just a cold.
The future finds faith is Charles Bronson not for sale
No offers in lead roles too masculino fenomeno
No money Chuck buys daggers and brushes
He’s cooking and screams that we’re not pitching
Eliminates tax levees and rivalry too. Rivalry I'm gonna kick
you cordon bleu. This Michael J. Fox quality check for temps
Bronson must hear the unbearable – he will return a mound
his mount fortress lacks basic abscess
Charles is left to feed without TV.
Holds up his duty to dried fruit
I'm going to poise here tills you photograph me
Hours making sense of rainy book signings
Crowd closer to his umbrella the fabric of beginner families
Echolocating. My gym access is denied, but Charles
because he plays an Arborvitae
Showed us the fire of understanding nurture and sex
Ruins everything when he lifts up weights
Without snap on dress for denurturing mother the plow,
Ticklish Santa Inmate #1 attempts mating with Chuck space is won
I'm wondering if I'm too manly for the moon
Locking eyes with the bull
Lights are put out
Ways to get a drunk home
Fear moves the great ocean

Recent Chemical Spraying and chuckling [how surprisingly no god spells]: Great teams are born, no uppers
Which might please Champions, but we bottom
Dormers mouth off to Claus Bronson
About restructuring the manager doll Chuck punches
And Can We Sew You Mitts
As Charles separates from the remaining fuselage
Reaching full growth in the future, a boom box of homeschooled plays
On graduation day, tasseled Charlie “En el Futuro, tu caca Frigidaire”
Ellos toman My stop bargaining powder
Calling for cummerbunds
Charles waits until I undress and the doorbell rings
Firing only when you see Charles’s eyes’ golfer
Chewing, sticking it under the table
Hiding the keycard
Big Chucks’ signature
We cannot stipend poor penmanship
We cannot stipend love chancellor
Forget your carnal stipend and grant
His telepathy spreads your vote evenly
Like swans birthing canals
Reptiles have sight Charles
And guidance control, so many Bronson foretells five suns.
Feed him tea
Belly swells to Ubu Bronson midwife. Crib reveals cheery Charles’ design knack
He’s on more weapons the rest he
keeps the weaponized Arkansans
The stockpiled Kansans
Suspicious looking is suspicious just insert
Introduce maniacal future needs meet subsistence
Especial for the beard in explorer must stay
Manly manly you are Aztecs worship
Your balls Voltron
More products are going hyper green.
Play on, clear jungle gym
Play on, kids know your structural limit
Play near not on your structural limit play on Charles

Only pry his eyes off the television
No, they tell me it’s terminal.

Shoot Charles grabs falafel and means loofa
Means loofa and grabs hostage
Means hostage and grabs underage bar
Grabs underage bar and means acting career
Grabs underage career and means photogenic

He’s good people, and this proves
That God is war sticks.

Lyon is the hardest of all working cities.
To make sound, rub the shortest length of grass between
Most boat approaches travel
You can learn names.
Logging has vested stake in voting trends
Steams in a place to combine hearts
Sounding takes place when straws are inserted into the penis near climax
Held for seconds, then we turn to breathe.
Winners please all over the world, because donut chains feed us
How is the broadcast hoping for a better audience?
Monkeys known spending. In fact, their relations are recorded and taken interest of
Intrigue mellows in standard
Aeration is standard when shown buttocks. Can I show my buttocks dinner habit?
If I find that shake, I’ll shoot plenty documentaries.
Still becomes memoir.

You are a very hungry man
I am lying down in front of you
your mouth waters
You unwrap me slowly,
and are overwhelmed
of digging into
my juicy goodness.
You pick me up
draw me closer
my succulent flavors.
A little drip
runs down your finger
you lick it clean
getting your first taste
of what is to come.
You can't wait any longer
you need me now
more then ever.
And you devour me
you feel good
full and satisfied
a little sad.
because now I'm gone
and you have
this sick feeling inside.

Went from skunk to real hunk. Predators
Cannot talk or seldom frivolously.
Speech collects in the divot, like lighter fluid
Can work our way up through foggiest doorman
In Halloween costumes we immolate Batman
My suit is breathable, but the take on fragile boys
Matches their dialogue, not their dialog’s underpants
Where real bad spirits are.
They find a location and seed where bad feelings
Sometimes I grab to stab my manhoods eatery.
Make it flushable bad feeling surround

“Shit. I’d almost forgotten. Wasn’t he the head of some international spelling crime meeting here in town for a few days? You said not to be hasty. That one?” F. Scott’s voice had been ascending in pitch. This last one nearly a shriek, like a soprano.
“But in this case…the perp had raided Home Lumber, Paints & Construction to find this mix. It’s rare. I think they use it in racing,” Jeb huffed.

In the name of disclosure --and since I cannot link to it (using Safari) -- it's going up here.
All this is, as the title reveals, re Superbad:
Wait...so, can addiction to/cultural pervasiveness of porn be waved away if only we hold ourselves to a kind of ethical self-purge?
It's interesting to note how porn might affect men and women's views of their own genitalia, shorn, excessive, "normative", etc. Does porn push us, culturally, to shear?
Personally, I thought Superbad was (I'll withhold the pun) a somewhat shitty movie. Most of the humor is in the vein of the Awkward -- use of the “anti-joke” (i.e., “the funny thing about my back is that it’s on my cock,” the lack of reaction then becoming the joke, etc.) –- sense of humor that seems well aware of its own maturity: a kind of cloying “we will prevail” optimism. This failed for me, namely because I wasn't McLovin or “Arrested Development kid” (Michael Cera) or any of those depicted, but a real nerd. I knew I was a nerd, but I was never able to rise above this nerdiness nor see it as normal. I KNEW I was not the norm in my high school environment, and I knew that I was powerless to do anything about it.
Yikes...where's the leather couch...?

Miranda July has a pose: the non pose.
To say that July avoids/omits/negates the pose is to say that July is a July-like hole, a sort of Language mixture ArundhatiRoy-like, manufacturing an emptiness for the viewer to fill. A claim that her pose is sincere occupies the same post or, as Brother Josh Nevers says, "slant angle of critique," as the Insincerity Mongers' claim. Is the effect that a coterie artist (Who isn't coterie, in these days of cot?) inlays on her audience less valid/artistic if not "sincere" or authentic? Who holds the Authenticity Authority, artist or viewer? I'm going to cop the 'Mitological' and say that Miranda July exists on a level different from July the (everyday) person, so as long as July exists, who are we --audience members, really-- to say which July is Julyier? If July herself doesn't know this answer, how can anyone? Is Roy the anti-war movement? Is Bush the War in Iraq? July Brand is cogito ergo sum of the moment. What gets me isn't the preciousness and daint involved in July's persona, it's the darlingism: taking the compartmentalization and saying, "See? It all fits and is confined here. This is the voice of our zeitgeist."
Both July's shit talkers and July need to crawl into a semiotic hole with closed meaning. Bye!
And if July didn't exist, it would be necessary to declare her a holiday.
Or a service entrance.

I'm posting my latest response below, as well as in the comment box linked above.
After much contemplation, I have come of a few conclusions as regards our discussion on flarf. It’s not that I don’t agree with your reasons for critiquing flarf (as any “school” or “tendency” should be open to criticism…though, when was the last time we critiqued McSweeney’s?) but rather I object/disagree with the material of the reasons you claim are what make flarf dangerous.
I elaborate: you say that flarfists, in co-opting the voices of lesser privileged or “underclasses” (That they don’t know/understand whose voice they co-opt is a heavier problem), relative to their supposed positions as professors, editors and poets – in American class structure – somehow oppresses, or at least shows a disrespect and lack of consideration of their subject, both in somehow objectifying this subject and in perhaps refusing dialog with said subject.
But any subject, made/created into a work of art by an “artist” (here being used more demonstratively than as a professional tag) is objectified. Art is a graven image. The result, whether a “good” poem or “bad” poem, is moot: the objectification takes place on a linguistic scale upon this “naming” and corralling.
Furthermore, this critique claims that to use another’s voice does two things:
One, it renders powerless their ability to speak/be heard, and
Two, (here, in a poem/artwork) to use a voice not native to the writer is a form of oppression, that naming has a responsibility/privilege paradigm that breaks when abused.
I disagree with both. The first because it assumes that two like voices cannot coexist, that taking another’s voice is tantamount to theft. “Tantamount,” perhaps. But theft? The second implies there is no difference between writer and subject, or narrator/speaker, of the poem. It implies that voice is not context based, that a black person saying “nigger” carries the same social charge as when a white person says it: whatever I say and however I say it are conditions that remain the same? I find spurious the idea that “wresting” words from the internet and using them in a different context/order somehow falls into the realm of identity theft and/or plagiarism.
Voice is not an action, though speaking is: in copying or imitating the action, we limit liberties of the speaker to have a voice. But flarf co-opts the timbre of certain statements of internet users rather than obstructing their ability to speak. To equate this to a person needed legal representation seems to be giving too much to the idea that it is a responsibility of speech rather than a freedom.
As a public defender, I’m sure you’re quite aware that providing legal representation doesn’t imply the accused is free or that they’re innocent, but rather merely enables the trial to continue. Giving a true voice to the underprivileged – rather than free internet or courtroom representation requires a lot more work on society’s part – means fighting for a system where truth, justice and equality prevail – whatever that would be like…
I agree with the idea that flarfists seem sometimes reluctant to refute criticisms of their “school,” though I maintain that their freedom to use the language rivals mine to take offense at (not its content, mind you) but where they get it. I can only assume complicit the original speakers of “Hey stupid ketchup squirt, your mother dumbfuck squid bitch vomit in a household President First Lady herpes tester wipes.” Seriously, is the speaker who used those words before they were flarfed going to find her lot in life
-stays the same
because her words were taken and published in a book whose print run maxes out at a monstrous 500 copies?
I don’t mean to suggest that anyone seeking vomit anecdotes is shit out of luck unless they know the web addy to Small Press Distribution. Hasn’t it all been done? Which is it? Does on-line contemporary parlance reflect a corporate superstructure of oppression, or does it represent the very “downtrodden” that the corporations seek to keep down?
So, are these people that have time to use the internet, post and record their voices, are they the underprivileged? Are they really voiceless, or do they represent corporate triumph over individual expression?
Getting back (somewhat) to the more concrete: are words that I take from a certain timbre a “no man’s land” and no writer may cross? Can these statements and exclamations –once they are used by a certain class — no longer be used by a higher class? This linguistic tyranny of the majority, “Don’t use my language because I’m oppressed,” has horrific implications. But that’s okay: we can still carry a gun.

I'm going to disagree with Mr. Abramson on the JACKET problem re flarf. JACKET has published both "proto" flarf (TARZAN, anyone?) work as well as essays seeking to open flarf up, with a razor (Dan Hoy's 16+ page long essay). Both sides seem represented. And there are definitely those who hate flarf and those who love it. What about the Swiss? Or, better: what about those poets/fans/readers who merely wish the flarf debate and its copiers vanish? Is flarf here to stay, and is this negative?

What 4F/flunkie/rubber stamp/choadsniffer would waste the time?
If Flarf is truly "classist," which class owns it? There must be an owner (a class) for this charge to stand. So then, assuming that ownership of flarf - of this "nothing" - can be taken, Abramson flails about, looking for a name as the brunt of his flarf of blame. Yet...in finding none, he proves the opposite: that flarf is indeed democratic in its access or accessory, and certainly without one specific class claiming privilege of ownership.

Above all there is something joyous about dancing. There is a sense of taking part and a sense of accomplishment as one fits the steps to the music. it is too bad that the name of the new dance is not more romantic, but then I guess the young people would not like it.

I understand you were trying to get some attention for your work, but
this is really the wrong way to go about it. Brush up on yr
cyber-etiquette: never CC back a whole list of strangers in the name
of self-promotion. It'll backfire.
Just my two cents.
Bah! Cyber- etiquette? The new idol. Bow real low! Yr outta luck, Spellchecker!

And, of course, I was asked several days ago about whether or not the President would be open to extending the deadline 30 to 45 days -- now you could say that's 26 to 41 days. If it was a non-starter then, it's a non-starter now.
(Source: Press briefing. March 14, 2003. )
So...is it wrong to seek what is in other words known as a stopper?
Judging by so many nonstarters, nonviolence becomes a nonbrainer.

2) My great- great- great- (3 greats) grand uncle is on the fifty. Eat your heart out, P. Diddy!
(This is inadmissible, since it's not really about me)
3) I suffer from a somewhat never-diagnosed version of Vaso-Vega Syncope. Less confused with the more popular What-Happens-in-Vegas-Stays-In-Vegas than the Vaso-Vegas Yn cope, I'm quoted here with my quips re the matter on gameday:
"(The University doctors) have it pegged to a vaso-vega syncope, which means I have to mangiare,'' Daley said. "Which brings us to
: A lot of times I don't eat on game days (sic) because of nerves, and that --along with habeas corpus-- is part of the problem.''
4) When I was a5 yrs. old I pissed on a friend of mine while we were playing at his house. I'm unsure of what it was that provoked this act of deviance. His head, admittedly, looked like a tree, but that still meant that the flowers were left to do without water. He ascended (literally, flying two-at-a-time) the stairs screaming. I zipped up, and arose to face my fate.
