dance, dance, dance.
Theater and music began as bodyless. We can read reviews of pre-19th Century performances, but we can’t really revisit them.
So that feels like a homecoming.
Books on the other hand… written words have always had a solid form by definition. So typing this is suddenly making me feel like Bruce Willis in one of those M. Night Shyamalan movies.
Dance music was gone? I didn’t even miss it.
I think this is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.
Story was bodyless for thousands of years before somebody figured out how to write it down. A million stories vanished without even leaving a review.
Media is not bodiless in internet culture, the body has just become standardized into the personal computer. Giant Netflix servers are bodies too.
