WIERD Presents a very rare live performance by SILENT DIANE!
Wednesday, November 10th, 2010
This week's WIERD is dedicated to next week's WIERD which will be the official 7 Year Anniversary Party! Dedicating one party to another party is Very Rare. The reason it is Very Rare is because, like de-caf coffee, MP3s, and more and more things in the world as time marches on, in ITself a party does not actually exist - there is no thing at the center of it as as ITs substance, IT simply happens as a result of a cogellation of other things called people coming together...when the people go home IT dissappears and no longer IS, and it is Very Rare forever, literally. So in as much as a party when it is happening or exists and IS is the ultimate humanistic, visceral non-abstract entity, it is always simultaneously the exact opposite, a thing with no thing at the center - or a thing with the thing-ness taken out, abstracted. The WIERD has long believed having a party is allegorically akin to making a painting: using color, light and composition to create a thing that is very much alive. The difference is this thing exists in time and as such can come to an end, and when it does the painting vanishes, kind of like flash paper magicians use, or the new organically degradable internal stitches used by surgeons in operations. So this being said, 1/2 an inch to the left and quite 'unpolitically' in this case, dedicating one non-existant thing to another is perhaps in-itself the most abstract painting ever made...and maybe the closest thing in the world one can do to truly doing nothing at all. VR.
