The Error of Expectations

4.19.08 Franz Kafka's A Hunger Artist opens with a description of an old-fashioned hunger or fasting-artist, who spends his time on public display, a caged spectacle starving for a cause or for art. He lives his life there, with ribs protruding, allowing young children to look, poke, and fear his awe, strength, and courage. However, there has been a large decline in these fasting-artists in recent decades.

4.18.08 The artist Guillermo Vargas Habacuc is starving dogs to death at art galleries as a performance piece. He is trying to make a statement about food, hunger and hypocrisy but the means to his end are cruelly bizarre. Worst still are the gallery goers who didn't help the dog. Simply untie it and walk out of the place. petition to stop him And all of us watch babies starving to death on TV all the time. There are food riots in several countries as I write this.

4.11.08 What a fking mess things can get into. It only gets worse it seems sometimes, So much pain in this world and so little one can do about it. We all must keep slithering down the knife edge. No wonder people pray.

from Ove: Someone came up the anagram:

What in the world! = Halt with wonder.

4.3.08 Ove's poetic support of animals at the cool

Friends of the Animal Center Foundation.


Spare changers caused him deep despair.
They hounded him no matter where,
So he chose to go south
And wound up in the mouth
Of a large, hungry, bipolar bear.

At a bar sat an ant and a gnat.
They were served by a dog and a cat.
Then from under the rug
Crawled a male LADYbug;
He's a little embarrassed by that.

A bird that was too young for pickin'
Was in shock, but alive and still kickin'.
I did what was best,
Placed it back in the nest
But then when I got home, I had chicken.
