Yeah, that's pretty much how I envisioned it.


From: "David Still" <d.still@davidstill.org>
> If you find confusion stimulating, then a careless birth must be nearly
erotic. Imagine - you go to bed, perhaps feeling woozy from that extra
martini and/or last slice of pizza . . . you toss and turn through troubling
dreams of penetration and ejaculation, sperm swimming upstream, unseen but
strongly felt biological processes churning within, the egg draws in one
intruder and then fortifies itself, no more will enter . . . a newborn's
gurgling cry pierces the silence of the dream womb and you wake to find that
it's real . . . your eyes dart downward, to the end of the bed where your
wrinkled, ape-like, slimy child sits, squinting and crying, his little arms
making small, jerky motions like a stiff and awkwardly commanded puppet, a
trail of smeared blood and clear to yellowish fluids marking his worm-like
slither away from you . . . you follow the umbilicle cord from his belly, it
winds atop bloodied sheets and disappears into your vagina as the final mild
contractions expel the after birth and the fluid you now feel pooled under
your cheeks and thighs. The child is now fully detached from you - a
screaming, alien creature attached by a knotted cord of flesh to a bloody
mess that sits between your legs - and while part of you is drawn to it, to
pick it up and try to comfort it, you fear that the moment you touch it the
screams will become louder and will never stop, and you recoil towards your
headbord and pillows, trembling from fear and adrenaline and a strange,
tingling arousal, wondering if you will wake up again or not.

hi and thanks. I thought that you will reveal your identity cause it kind of get on my nerve communicating with a annoy onus. Do let me know your real identity if you still want us to stay in contact through email.
Thanks and have a great week too.

The transfer went without a hitch. Thanks - it was a much-needed cash injection!

Would next Wednesday be good for you? It'll be packaged as arranged.
Thought we'd meet at the cafe in the main market place in Almere. You won't miss it. I'll be the one reading The New York Times. Let me know what time.

By the way, the other item you mentioned should be arriving next week.

Still interested?

You should publish this as a checklist on your Web site. Perhaps like a Cosmo quiz: "I Do or I Dump?"

Why go see a shrink or a couples counselor when the ladies of the Web could have you?

I am confused and delighted by your proposal.
If you are serious, I will arrange a hockey fight, for my honor, between you and the boyfriend.
Have your people call my people.
As for love child(ren): two words, "Hell" and "no". Nothing in the form of a small person will be exiting my body.... unless it's an alien shaped like a person, thus, explaining the voices in my head.
How odd that the time you send your email, is my birthday, well, not the year.... you get the idea though.

You confuse me. Sometimes you seem wrapped up so much in your words that you
become--well, inchoherent but trying to sound profoundish. Ah, but the mere
mention of the Greybar building sent me back in time to the days
when....well. Back then. I am not sure what the point of what you are doing
is meant to be but then since it costs me not a bit I guess I don't have to
complain because as you say early on sometimes in life we have to make
choices. In fact, all the friggin time. Ah, I would spank you if I had you
present for the bad words you use. You need a bit of discipling! But onward
and upwards, as they say--who said this? I wish you joy and the best of all
things and think of me from time to time as one who reached out. There. Be
of good cheer.

Subject: Re: joke
well, you are never this humble... of the 3 players - Abraham, his son and God, I naturally assumed you meant you were the exalted one. 'You' had said as much before, maybe another you? 'God,' the Force, or the Third Eye.... is inside us. You could be the echo from within. If one leaps into the dark, it is because one wants to, a sub-conscious decision, for the experience, trial or journey, and not for the certainty of the outcome.
Now I can probably expect some gherkin to slap me for being mawkish. Or are you Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?



>From: David Still
>no no no! you are seldom this literal! I gave the Abraham example merely to show you that in the bible, the message is clear: God spoke to Abraham. But later, exitextially, Soren K. asked: how does Abraham know that it is really God speaking? And later, one asks: what kind of a God plays such games? In sum, then, we take a leap in the dark and assume this or that. We have little or no certainty.
> For you to suggest that you are to play Abraham is to suggest that you will offer me up as a sacrifice to something or other. Would you do this to little old me?

Subject: Re: your vacation
Yes, it was very gracious of the world to stop for a few weeks while I rested. I've notified the appropriate authorities that I'm back, and I expect it will start rotating on its axis again shortly.

Actually, it presents an interesting problem. Weblogs are by definition personal, and people by definition take a break once in a while. I guess blog readers expect sites to go down from time to time. I don't know how people like Dave Winer and other bloggers keep it going nonstop, other than taking their laptops and Web access with them wherever they go.

Anyway, I enjoyed your thoughts and your e-mail. Glad you're enjoying the site (again).

Oh David dear,
if you want to win prizes you just keep your eyes open and perhaps bookmark the Medienkunstpreis-site. No time to remind potential winners on my part, I'm afraid!!

Is yours a project to be taken predominantly seriously then? I must admit that I laughed quite a bit - the kind of laughter that springs from surprise and, well, admiration. ("Admiration". )

Anyway, how do I know it's the REAL David writing me all this - ?

Ulrike






David Still <d.still@davidstill.org> am 26.08.2002 14:31:45
Well, Ulrike, I had a look at the site you told me and I saw the
applications were over since.... April!!!!!
Are you making fun of me?

Of course you said I should apply next year, but now it's much too early to apply for next year...
Oh Ulrike dear, I know you don't take my project seriously,
that's why you need so many inverted commas! Pity... I do deserve to win media art prizes.
Will you send me a call then, when it's time to apply?
Love,
David
