Nothing like constructing a CV for purposes other than a straight academic gig to bring home the point that your life, especially for the past 5 years, has had no discernable plot. There's some resume cliche about this, right? -- "It should tell a story." The story here is: This person has no idea what he is doing, or what he will do next.

Somewhere in the last 48 hours, I went from having little or no idea what I might teach in the guise of "Topics in Aesthetic Theory" in one-week-and-change to drafting a proto-syllabus that would have them reading an article per session. Better just print up the first half of the packet, and see where we are in 5-6 weeks.

Will try to report later on last night's screening of Play It As It Lays (1972) and Pretty Poison (1968); both with Tuesday Weld and Anthony Perkins, both enjoyable but not particularly subtle, neither available on video.
