The seat of the soul is where the inner world and the outer world meet. Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap. - Novalis

I grew up in the 60's and by the time I left home for college the rather large bottom drawer of my dresser was full of back issues of Rolling Stone and Zap! comix and scattered other underground periodicals. Robert Crumb was unavoidable. Sadly they are all long gone - my mother must have found them and thrown them out. Lord knows what she thought. I just watched Zwigoff's documentary

which I just happened upon in the amazon instant video collection. It's both profoundly depressing and strangely uplifting. I'm extremely glad I saw it. You might be too. Or perhaps not. He remains productive and interesting. He even has a website: R Crumb

On the "New York School"

"If we are all postmodernists, we are none of us avant-garde,
for postmodernism is the institutionalization of the avant-garde."

I'm finding this pretty exciting stuff. How did I not know any of this?
