Marcel Duchamp on Creativity

“The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”

Marcel Duchamp

The Third War Was for the Words

“The third war was for the words: written, spoken, whispered.” Holly Karapetkova

I wonder how often we fight over words.  Politicians and lawyers argue over the words used in laws that will determine inhibitions to our behaviour.   And what of the privileged language?  The one that is used, say English, over others, where not everyone speaks the privileged language.  And what about dialects within that privileged language.  The British caste system of upper middle class dialect versus cockney.

What do you think about the war of words?

Mike Poblete’s Play -Rave Reviews

35118949_148495386012808_5542328993937620992_o“‘Best Bet’.  In Mike Poblete’s intriguing new play, Surfacing, the four-person cast is strong.  Surfacing is a play that succeeds on all levels.  It’s comic, punchy, uncensored dialog is enough to make anyone relax.  The language is definitely for adults, yet leaves space for one’s inner child…Seeing a bunch of talented, sensitive characters who all have social anxiety and deep-seated feelings of inadequacy is a helpful reminder that, yes, probably some part of us is achieving things in spite of ourselves.  And Poblete’s remarkable writing comes vividly to life…”

—Ed Molin, theasy.comhttp://www.theasy.com/Reviews/2018/S/surfacing.php

“Surfacing was hands down brilliant.  Poblete holds a deep tome peppered with great wit.  He understands of concept of dark comedy.”
