Almost Elegant No.2b

To be erotic, the objects of your interest have to be in a state of sexual ease, more dreaming than desiring, lying back nonchalantly, asleep, or miles away, wrapped in some narcissistic concern. They have to have forgotten about you and yet offer themselves to you in some strang way, with a sort of indifferent animalistic, gentle folly and involuntary nakedness. Only the body without desire is truly deserving of pleasure. - Jean Barudrillard, "Cool Memories"

    that's really a more a definition of the erotic aspect of voyeurism than the conditions of 'erotic' dont you think?

    and anyway, are the frenchies really necessary?

    just quote some bataille.
    then everybody love you.

    absolutely, unless you are talking about some telepathic creature, almost all of us 'see' other first as condition of perception. Then come the 'knowing', the interplay of consent, and hence the game of desire.

    I doubt by quoting bataille, everybody will love me, not around the postmodern circle at least. Life is more complicated than simply being 'shocking' or stylistic existential despair.

    I for one think, the interplays and drama in between are all the rage.

    Your lead singer has a nice voice.

    (The heavy Metallica influence is a bit too common tho', as if the entire process is feeding a series of predetermined 'I am dark and tough' thought production. But the idioms is too common.
