attachment, separation and loss
or: I've grown accustomed to your face...
The following is a review of Attachment Theory and Psychoanalysis that I just posted to its Amazon page. The review won't come up for a few days, but you might want to go there for context. I've added links here, though they won't show up in the review itself.

part II in a series
I ain't the doctor and I ain't the doctor's son
shocking, isn't it? but I understand these things do actually happen!
and if Amerika weren't so fucked up on the pornography outlined
in the previous post, it wouldn't be such a shameful fucking crime.
I've taken a few liberties with the lyrics above,
but then, who hasn't? for a good time, click here
to find out more than you want to know. trust me.
and here's the source of the hesitation grafik.
btw, despite Kurt Vonnegut's best efforts to popularize
"wide open beaver," searching google images for that phrase
netted not much more than this curious page. you must study it
a bit to fully understand why this is even worth mentioning, ay.
What the hell. Since I brought him up, here's Kurt Vonnegut Jr. on WOB from his truly terrifying book, Breakfast of Champions..."A wide-open beaver was a photograph of a woman not wearing underpants, and with her legs far apart, so that the mouth of her vagina could be seen. The expression was first used by news photographers, who often got to see up women�s skirts at accidents and sporting events and from underneath fire escapes and so on. They needed a code word to yell to other newsmen and friendly policemen and firemen and so on, to let them know what could be seen, in case they wanted to see it. The word was this: 'Beaver!'
now tell me how long
do I have to wait?
can I get you now
or must I hesitate?

Doctoring the truth
you've come a long way, baby
The following is from "The Me Decade and the Third Great Awakening" by Tom Wolfe. Originally published in 1973, the article is reprinted in Mauve Gloves & Madmen, Clutter & Vine.
"And what will the Real Me be like? It is at this point that the new movements tend to take on a religious or spiritual atmosphere. In one form or another they arrive at an axiom first propounded by the Gnostic Christians some eighteen hundred years ago: namely, that at the apex of every human soul there exists a spark of the light of God. In most mortals, that spark is "asleep" (the Gnostics' word), all but smothered by the facades and general falseness of society. But those souls who are clear can find that spark within themselves and unite their souls with God's. And with that conviction comes the second assumption: there is an other order that actually reigns supreme in the world. Like the light of God itself, this other order is invisible to most mortals. But [those who have] dug out from under the junk heap of civilization can discover it.
And this one is from The Emerging Self: A Developmental Self & Object Relations Approach to the
Treatment of the Closet Narcissistic Disorder of the Self, by James F. Masterson, M.D.
"...grandiose and special... feelings of superiority, uniqueness, and well-being based on... narcissistically manipulating other people to obtain their approval, devaluing them, and using them solely for this narcissistic purpose, and also being able to act without sexual feeling, that is, to use sex as a manipulation for her narcissistic needs."Just two questions, then, baby. First...
