art/history: i'll confess it. i do have odd pinups. if i were a teenager right now, my bedroom wall would be covered with paraphernalia related to noam chomsky, percy bysshe shelley, jacques tati & tonight's big-brained babe, jean-paul sartre (born #otd in 1905). the magnitude of my fondness for him is such that i will certainly regret wrestling with flowery expressions & hard verbiage to try to explain it. the thing about sartre is that his philosophies just make sense - but it's not only that they're rational elucidations on being & human existence. they're also ideas that connect us all & make us responsible for each other. sartre's observations were ultimately compassionate even when they verged on misanthropy. that we're condemned to be free is exhilarating & simultaneously comforting , don't you think? that 'man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does' is a design for life. who needs the fucking bible when jean-paul is throwing stone cold gems like this at you all damned day? be yourself. don't act like someone society wants you to be. anyway, i witter. look closely at sartre's pipe smoke & you might see a few more wisps of wisdom. now, if you'll excuse me, i'm off to stare at my bedroom ceiling.
