A kind of a "dangerous supplement", marked, scarred on a body, post-orgasmically, always, already in anticipation of (a) crisis OR for a desert avec 'agape'. Mindb(l)ogg(l)ing Noise. "Avalanche, would you share my last pursuit?" (Baudelaire)

Or A coverage of Tsioronis-Dasein disclosures (Bibliographical Fragments)

"I think I would know Nora's fart anywhere. I think I could pick hers out in a roomful of farting women. It is a rather girlish noise not like the wet windy fart which I imagine fat wives have. It is sudden and dry and dirty like what a bold girl would let off in fun in a school dormitory at night."
James Joyce

Losing itself in the publicness and the idle talk of the 'they', [Dasein] fails to hear its own Self in listening to the they-self. If Dasein is to be able to get brought back from this lostness of failing to hear itself, and if this is to be done through itself, then it must fitst be able to find itself - to find itself as something which has failed to hear itself, and which fails to hear in that it listens away to the 'they'. (...) This listening-away gets broken by the call if that call, in accordance with its character as such, arouses another kind of hearing (...) The call is precisely something which we ourselves have neither planned nor prepared for nor voluntarily performed, nor have we ever done so. 'It' calls, against our expectations and even against our will. On the other hand, the call undoubtedly does not come from someone else who is with me in the world. The call comes from me and yet from beyond me. (...) The caller is unfamiliar to the everyday they-self; it is something like an alien voice. What could be more alien to the 'they', lost in the manifold 'world' of its concern, than the Self which has been individualized down to itself in uncanniness and been thrown into the 'nothing'?"
Martin Heidegger, Being and Time, §55-57

"For Fanon listening is not about passing. And it is not about becoming. It is, instead, about making- a techne rather than an ontology.Listening and hence solidarity are not about "being alike" or even "hearing alike," but about differentially 'hearing the like' or, indeed, mishearing the like. As a tactical practice of listening, Fanonian solidarity is an interpretive and misinterpretive procedure in which a common canon of referents (the"Voice [of Algeria]") provides the collectivepoint of reference for a heterogeneous interpretive, and misinterpretive, community."
Ian Baucom

"But now (made free from them) next her, before;
Peacefull, and young, Herculean silence bore
His craggie Club; which vp, aloft, hee hild;
With which, and his forefingers charme hee stild
All sounds in ayre; and left so free, mine eares,
That I might heare, the musique of the Spheres,
And all the Angels, singing, out of heauen."
George Chapman
