The New Septenary

Founded on the intellect and the crystal truth about The New Septenary, the earth and the whole mass of these statements are free to buff the intermezzo of the four angels and the other angel; and The New Septenary will introduce a group of trumpets to loosen the seventh seal.

LA-Lit: Christine Wertheim

LA-Lit interviews Christine Wertheim
Sunday, September 23 at 5pm
At Betalevel

We’d like to invite you to a live radio recording, reading & conversation this coming Sunday, September 23 at 5 p.m. at Betalevel in Chinatown. Christine Wertheim will be the featured writer on LA-lit, a radio show co-curated by Mathew Timmons & Stephanie Rioux. The show (& hence the recording) lasts a little over an hour and will be about 30 minutes of reading & about 30 minutes of questions & answers/further questions—alternating between the two modes in hopes of creating a space for dynamic conversation.

Christine Wertheim writes poetics and aesthetic criticism. Her book "+|'me'S-pace," was published in 2007 by Les Figues Press. Other work has appeared in La Petite Zine, Five Fingers Review, Cabinet, Open Letter, Art History vs Aesthetics, and X-TRA. She co-organizes an annual writing conference whose publications are Séance (2006), and The Noulipian Analects (2007), and co-directs The Institute For Figuring. She teaches writing, literature and feminisms in the school of Critical Studies at CalArts.

LA-Lit interviews poets and writers in the Los Angeles area. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place, this may mean writers that have lived in LA all their lives or writers who happen to be in LA for a few days. LA-Lit is a place for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Co-hosted and co-produced by Stephanie Rioux and Mathew Timmons, LA-Lit is sponsored by Superbunker and recorded at Betalevel. You can subscribe to the LA-Lit podcast by visiting our website and dragging the Subscribe link from the sidebar to your podcast folder in iTunes, or download past shows by visiting the writer’s page on the website.

Ideally we will have an audience made up of people who are inclined to jot down a thought, query, doubt, or other incitement. During the second half of the show the floor will be opened for questions from the audience.

Please do your best not to arrive late, so as to minimize the sounds of shuffling & stair-creaking while the show is being recorded.

Feel free to forward this invitation on to your friends and neighbors. For more information, visit

We will be delighted to see you there,
Mathew Timmons & Stephanie Rioux

The New Writing on the Wall

Mark your calendar, dazzle your friends! see the Magic of Global inequality rising as it's accepted that Forgiveness is The New Writing on The Wall.

The Question of Time entered the Discussion of Post-Graffiti Art in the Exhibition at the Swiss Embassy, concluding that Forgiveness is The New Writing on the Wall. Nearly all the once-notorious names in Philadelphia graffiti were there, cleverly saying, "this Now, is The New Writing on the Wall."

Now, The New Writing on the Wall starts with an Author, a Topic and a Quote.

Now, The New Writing on the Wall has been Read 5 times.

The New Writing on the Wall will Magically generate its own Lexicon.

Singing The New Song to The Web Console Bathroom Vanity, an excellent piece of furniture, can be interpreted as The New Writing on the Wall for bathroom ambience. “1000 songs in your pocket” is The New Writing on the Wall instead of a clueless Quantum Note.

The New Writing on the Wall is Graffiti: But is it better on Concrete or Wallpaper? The students at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, remove graffiti from The New Writing on the Wall. Go inside and look at The New Writing on the Wall. Oh my! Who would write this?? Go east on Sanders St. and on the south corner are 2 boxes of shotguns.

Forgiveness is The New Writing on the Wall, even as Global inequality is rising.

Hate Factories are reveling in The New Writing on the Wall, we shouldn’t let a bunch of has-beens sabotage a long-delayed future. Now and then, the surviving partners can see The New Writing on the Wall: another way of saying electronic games are here to stay.

Forgiveness is The New Writing on the Wall, the smart way to move through the World.

The New Writing on the Wall is The New Slogan and it's far more infomative than it was before, that skeleton will lie in chamber forever.

The New Writing on the Wall says: Collaborators Wanted. Labor woes continue.

The New Author Function

And in the hopes of a larger and increasingly literate audience paradoxically inseparable from The New Author Function and from reception, elements of The New Author Function in narrative seem quite incompatible with tradition.

The New Author Function constitutes itself as figuring forth. Is it The New Author Function making itself felt, or the mark of a re-appraisal of Horatian modality throughout what, ironically, the images (and illusions) of procreation actually obscure.

Is this the presumed autonomy of The New Author Function as presupposed? The connotations that “author” brings to the text are often less than helpful for innovative writing, yet they are making The New Author Function.

Creating an Author creates The New Record in the Authors' table and returns the ID assigned to The New Author Function.

Create an Author. Create an Author's Name. Create a String As String And the two As a String are.

The New Aesthetic

In these four lectures, we track the chronology of Beethoven's fourth, fifth, and sixth symphonies and study The New Art that had the power to revive and prolong the city's established architectural traditions.

From this web of paradox, The New Aesthetic has emerged.

Here, a parallel can usefully be drawn with The New Aesthetic of Bulgarian choral music represented by the various state ensembles with their repertoire of Forms. Taken first from a sense of rejecting the past of modernity, The New Aesthetic encountered foreignness on the streets, a foreignness formed out of Form, taken first from a sense of rejecting the past along with modernity. The New Aesthetic encountered foreignness on the streets, a foreignness formed out of the Digital aesthetics: The New Labels and The New Aesthetic. Modern American Indian photographers working in The New Aesthetic, don't attempt to hide the atrocities of contemporary reservation life.

Now, having considered specific art practices such as digital photography, net art and music, we will move on to The New Aesthetic, emphasizing the potential of technology to make force more precise. Yes, and War is very much related to The New Aesthetic. A glamorous and especially virtuous activity, War has taken firm hold in the American consciousness and has Consolidated The New Aesthetic. A controversial exhibit was scheduled for The New Aesthetic that reinforced this heightened predilection of War for arms that have caused the appearance of The New Aesthetic in the recent years of war.

You’ve heard this story before, becoming unravelled in Europe or assaulted in some roadhouse, but bold as nipples and booted. The New Aesthetic is a band based out of Winnipeg. They're a hard working group that have booked there own tours. They have also recently recorded an EP Desecrating Christ: The New Aesthetic of Terror?

The New Aesthetic: did it work?

The Most popular tricks of The New Aesthetic. Minutes To Midnight. Minutes To Midnight. Not Too Late. Not Too Late for The New Aesthetic: The New Aesthetic revels in the common murky topics.

Look Smart, Healthy and Fit in comparison with The New Aesthetic brought on by Andy Warhol. Flexible form is provided free by approaching The New Art Form, which raises questions in the very Home of The New Aesthetic. The New Aesthetic formed in february of 2004 as the result of previous originals which did not work out for drummers of The New Aesthetic.

The New Aesthetic of Internet hybrids and worldwide interactive events has come from the Source, the International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques of Erosion Control, a professional magazine supporting the erosion control industry, published by Forester Communications, INC., But poets still fight for the simple right to set their rhythms on paper.

Notes on The New Aesthetic of Poetry and Music have pushed 269 of The New Readers toward The New Aesthetic. "We can hardly put too much stress on the influence which at all times the past of art exerts on the future of art, what we could call The New Aesthetic."

City Lofts. City Lofts. City Lofts. City Lofts. The neighborhood floor plans tours and projects status. The New Aesthetic Supports Carriers of One Edge Now! The Most popular tricks. Minutes To Midnight. Minutes To Midnight.

Besides reflecting on the conditions that made possible this recent boom, this book elaborates on The New Aesthetic and the tendencies of recent productions, this is a polemic against both, and distinctly agrees with Schiller that critics of The New Aesthetic misunderstood the idea of beauty when they said, "The New Aesthetic is not everyone's cup of herbal tea."

Critics and listeners raised on punk's supposed anti-hippie credo can be suspicious, while others remember the '60s. As Guattari acknowledges, much of The New Aesthetic is a paradigm consonant with Marcel Duchamp's observation many years ago that "art is a road which leads."
