ENTER THE LOBBIES to discover a lewd speckled bird of theory and praxis. Each of our Lobbies is a seething recoil from this human history of dedicated but dubious rote activity: pragmatic and posturing politics, sad and sensitive philosophy and just plain foolishness too. Art gestalts and quivering mad mistresses of stone-cold sophistries attempt to distort our impressions as we pierce each with enfilading cafespirit, mocking digital galleries, countless literary figures, crippled poets, mangled criticism, mighty friends and mortal foes. You might find religion hiding beneath a bushel basket armwrestling with divinity and losing its shirt. Or you just might witness a killer movement on the run, and go away certain you knew the score all along.
CHECK HERE FOR BLUE CHIP MARGINALIA, special instructions, limitations, indices, special reports, the Fab Five hot spots, new releases, and the sort of thing that just doesn't fit anywhere else, BUT ESPECIALLY, click here to join the SWORG SWILL, our sometimes dormant, sometimes furious site listserv. Remember, this site is in perpetual revision, always suffering from crazy man weathers brought to us by both the civilized and uncivilized alike, whether occidental, oriental or otherwise, so watch out for the numerous potholes and dead-ins!
. . . BEGAN SCRATCHING the surface of our Great Escape and realized we had no comfort zone from which to bring order to the chaos of all these statements of purpose, blue-ribbon campaigns for freedom of speech, glossary testicles, listings of mirror sites, and other odd sorts of periphery and flummox that would eventually wash in like kudzu to cover this Scenewash Project with a clutter we knew we couldn't stomach on an empty lunch, so we decided to stuff all that schtick here in the belly of the Light Machine. Happy Trails!
. . . IN THE BEGINNING WAS ART, and ART was fruitful and multiplied. Pulling it altogether just in time to catch the next bus out of here, the SWAG is the Scenewash Art Gallery and storewhere one can browse the huge archive paintings, prints, and even Gabriel Thy's recently published collection of poems, and purchase using your PayPal account or major credit card. And now that Gabriel has relocated his studio to Wheeling, check out the STEEL & GRISTLE.
