You write: " ... lines of thought that go nowhere or to someplace I didn't originally intend them to go ..."

Personally I find this non-approach more than acceptable!

Even though I plan out my entries, blogging is still a thinking-out-loud on the page kind of writing--which I like, too. I'm glad you don't find it too exasperating or confusing to read, Mano.

Shirty means the same as tetchy.

So shirty means tetchy, eh? Hmm, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Thanks, Virtual Linguist, for the definition.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
