in this case, there would be nothing left after removing the

plain text, which is always allowed.

ok, I'll do that:

the new is always spectacular, always tumescent, yet another
wonder; the old is tawdry, worn out, sleazy, always in tatters,
a case of what i've called defuge, ponderous, as if it has an
odor of something not quite right...:alas, how often the new
dominates these discussions - new and dark horizons, the
violence of world wars to come - instead of close and careful
re-examination of everything that occupies us within a world
that admittedly is always new, always full of surprises and
innovations.:1:the question is, should i put up the images of
the stones i've already used, curiously augmented by other
similar images, or should i let these go, arguing instead for
innovation and new curiosities, phenomena?:the new is always
spectacular, always tumescent, yet another wonder; the old is
tawdry, worn out, stale, last year's, sleazy, exhausted, always
in tatters, an example of what i've called defuge, ponderous, as
if it has an odor of something not quite right ... innovative,
fresh, brand-new, the latest, improved, better than ever,

dressed as the new is always spectacular, always tumescent, yet
another? Is the new is always spectacular, always tumescent, yet
another dressed as you? is it that old defuge, that old sound,
that old music, no one listens to it any more, something eating
up those old memories, excreting last year's styles, no one
wants to see them anymore, they're ponderous, lousy colors, too
small, nothing fits any more, ... being is innovation and new
features, phenomena?:the new is always here, it's being new:the
new is always new:the new is forever:the old is always old:the
old just hangs around: as if it has an end "18422" and is gone
forever:i'm psychotic:..it's taken nine seconds here:..this
machine's unbelievably fast:..you wouldn't believe it:...this
model:there's no stopping it:new small innovations:..great
improvements:..major changes in the phenomena:..the new is
always

Mid 1990s class descriptions, New School

I was teaching courses on internet topics 1994-96 at a few
places, including the New School in NYC. Fwiw, here is a
description, which also describes the state of the net at a
prescient moment when the user base was wildly expanding, and
into graphic media, networking, as well. Just came across this
recently and thought it might be of interest.
