Zyryality: Theatre of The Absurd. The Dialogue

 Or “The Art of Not Thinking Together”

A one-act nonsense play Eugene Ionesco could be proud of.

 

 

Character One:  A miserly single entry in your photoblog each week…

Character Two:  Thank you for the trouble…

Character One:  The snotty replies you make, realy make me angry…

Character Two:  I come to Nostalgia precisely for... challenging thought-provoking words…

Character One:  Narrative that often seems to be drawn from a yearning to return to the period of adolescent hormone surges …

Character Two:  Non sempre è facile commentare. A volte credo che un commento possa disturbare.

Character One:  Maybe people are intimidated by your "higher educated, philosophical" BS?

Character Two:  Your pictures need time to sink in sometimes …

Character One:  Are u missing comments? what for? popularity?

Character Two:  Believe this only if you want…  I always visit your postings ...

Character One:  I am too old to be lectured by you, what to say and to what NOT to say.

Character Two:  I've left you a kiss hanging on the wall as I always do…

Character One:  Your replies are sometimes a bit too insisting and coquetting in a bit vain or slightly arrogant way…

Character Two:  You can’t please them all.

Character One: "Come on, Sweetie...I have given you all my best pick-up lines, and invested lots of valuable time into this!"
Character Two: "..."

Luv ya, VZ [grin]
vz-nostalgia: Character Two: You put all your eggs in one basket, breaking the First Rule of Investment (and teh Second Rule as well, which reads: "don't forget teh First Rule". smile

Luv ya too, Ray. smile

sure puts me in the mood to dust off the fishing gear and fill the cooler
vz-nostalgia: Give me a call, when the dust settles down, Chris. I might join you for a fly fishing trip to North Georgia Mountains. smile

A man renowned for repartee
Will seldom scruple to make free
With friendship's finest feeling,
Will thrust a dagger at your breast,
And say he wounded you in jest,
By way of balm for healing.

William Cowper (1731–1800), British poet. Friendship.

Character one is a dried old fish, with some of its original stink vaguely remaining.

Character two is a zyryalistic fish. It is used to fool other fishes into thinking it is nice. It has the power to leave a fatal wound.
vz-nostalgia: Not sure why you quoted old chap William Cowper, Louis, as I wasn't talking about friendship here. smile Maybe some other time I will. :=-)

Louis: Character one is a dried old fish, with some of its original stink vaguely remaining.
VZ: Vaguely remaining? I think the stink is quite prominent. smile

Louis: Character two is a zyryalistic fish. It is used to fool other fishes into thinking it is nice. It has the power to leave a fatal wound.
VZ: Perhaps, it has, but have you noticed the scratches on the body of the "zyryalistic" fish? These are teeth marks. And those were not small teeth: the lure is 12 inches long. smile

The real fish is the better bait...and will surely be more successful than the lure...
vz-nostalgia: Not always, Ms. Alarie, but... fishing with teh real bait is cheating, while fishing with the lure is sport. smile
That's massaged your ego quite a lot I guess V'

[grin]
vz-nostalgia: It would indeed, if I had one, Richard. smile

"A work of art is above all an adventure of the mind. . . .
Explanation separates us from astonishment, which is the only gateway to the incomprehensible. . .
The critic should describe, and not prescribe. . . "
but then...I'm only quoting Eugene. I bought the play (and the picture) hook line and sinker smile
vz-nostalgia: Sounds beautifully logical for the mind of a genius of the absurd, don’t you think, Ms. Redmama?

Redmama: I bought the play (and the picture) hook line and sinker.
VZ: That makes me a good angler. smile

What a dizzying merry go round of floating and disjointed thoughts. A fascinating series of very short monologues, and all in response to the same lure. smile Your addition of 'not' in the title of William Isaacs' book makes all the difference in the world. A dialogue would be an entirely different play. smile
vz-nostalgia: :

VZ: And you know what I like the most in this "dialogue", Ms. Suzanne? That I didn't write a single word here. smile

...there's only one way to find out...FIIIIGHT! smile (sorry it's a catchphrase in England) ;-)
vz-nostalgia: One way to find out what, Ms Eva? Sure, I'm a good fighter, but in this case, I see neither a reason, nor anyone to fight. smile
well it's really the theatre of the absurd quoting our comments but you expected that I suppose smile
vz-nostalgia: Nope. I didn't expect comments like this, Ms. Delia, but here they are. It would be a sin not to use such a fertile material. Ionesco would never forgive me, if I didn't. smile

I think I will follow your work it is something special
vz-nostalgia: Be my guest on Fridays, Derek.
The capture and the lure, got to be a male fish to be overwhelmed by a colourful beauty like that.
vz-nostalgia: She could be as colorful and beautiful as a peacock's tail, Brian, but what really counts is how she plays in teh waters of desire. smile
