There are 34 pairs of lines for Leviathan.

Then we move to Behemoth.

After that, you will just have to wait and see. There is no shortage of material though! :D

+ more universal themes. Try scaring them with damnation, that kind of stuff.

BTW do you know what Mark Twain said: "heaven for the climate, hell for the company".

As an example of long running art forms, one woman made a video 736 hours long of herself sitting immobile in a museum.

People were invited to sit with her, but there was no active interaction besides that - just Sitting. If they spoke to her, she did not respond.

I'd also note that "trackstar" started off as performance art and then took on a life of its own.

It is generated by me, but it is not "me", despite some overlap in select and sometimes deliberately exaggerated aspects of personality and a true range of shared interests.

This could be true for any of you; it depends on your own stance towards it.

Haha! We will see about scaring them. I am more interested in mystifying them and influencing them to explore the texts.

But indeed I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.

Especially if Saint Augustine was there.

LOL.  Well, thank you.  

When I was thinking about other people here who might or might not see themselves as art forms, I wondered about you.

Is ppauper really a clear reflection of yourself, or is he/it enhanced and distorted for your own amusement?

I think that farmer was a performance artist of sorts (and quite a good writer), also zerdna, N, and someone from Portugal who shall go nameless, but seemed to be a wildly creative type and a good writer.

The bloggers are/were more part of the official theater of the forum, so I am just thinking of the general members.

Hmmmm... I've never had this problem...

Perhaps you are using the wrong keywords? Or perhaps you are searching "oogle" rather than "google"?

Ah, that was mentioned a long time ago.

A toast to the collective, then!

Off to the kitchen to slice up the berries and make the shortcake dough. (See "Random Photos").   Enjoy your evenings!

I will be offline for a while as tomorrow is the Glorious 12th July. Celebrations last well into August. 
So, be good and no fighting! I hope you won't miss me too much.

Safe travels! I will keep working in the gardens - should have the first harvest gathered in by the time you return!
