Arse of the Self

Totalising world views...

Foucault talks about arts of the self...
I think in my case, arse of the self makes more sense.
In fact, as the above picture suggests, I think sometimes I have my head stuck up my arse - but that picture is really just an adornment to this entry and not an appropriate illustration to what I am talking about.
I often try to impress but end up being unimpressed by the lack of an appreciative reception and lash out at others or try too hard to fit in.
I don't think we're in high school anymore, Toto!
My boyfriend is really good at arts of the self. So much more post modern than he realises... He'll learn!
I think this is one of the things I don't like about Foucault: his french pretentiousness. It's not hard to see why a bunch of fags would get into the guy.
Drama. Persona. Put on.
Go Deleuze and Guattari any day.
