Also, the print parts of Issue forty-two are now available from The Otoliths
Storefront. I apologize for the price of Part 2, but, unfortunately, 288
pages of full color doesn't come cheap. Issue forty-three will be available
by the middle of November.


& finally, a plug for the new book by Alberto Vitacchio, Landlessness, in
which the Pequod becomes a vessel engaged not only in a search for Moby-Dick
but also in an exploration of American literature. Extracts have appeared in
a couple of issues of Otoliths, & the entire is now available through

Semiotic Splatter vii, the abjection of the 'and so forth'

If you can't up or down try moving from side to side.
(Chinese 'fortune cookie' fortune)

the digital qua digital is immune to semiotic splatter - on the
digital level barely perceived - given a smoothing function,
splatter appears as ruptures - digital noise around the edges -
difference between the sound of waves and their digital collapse
- among the waves - within them - no collapse at all - but then
- up and down - UD and -< and >- - you can see where this is
going - quark encodings - granularity - poesis of matter - the
world's grit - the whiteness of the whale shifted to amplitude
levels - the corporate appears -

or would you rather have the dual suns of verti - the single sun
and semiotic attachments of hori - -

you get the story - meanderings and contractuality at every turn
of the gamespace - the real - hegel's porosity - porosity - the
composition of the world = and so forth -

and so forth
and so forth
and so forth

the body of Hillary Clinton - and so forth
detritus - and so forth - collusion - and so forth -
monarchic entrapments - and so forth -
the violence of the monarchic - and so forth -
v: i approve violence - which is not violence -
v: i approve rape - which is not rape -
v: look at the glowing image - look at me -
v: i alone can save you -
digital v and the abject composition of the world -

abject porosity - abject composition -
the abjection of the 'and so forth' -
the attack - unamenable catastrophic transformation -
unamenable 'and so forth' -
