Eric Mayer has produced quite a bit of writing: screenplays, poetry, novels, and essays like the two we're making available here. The difference between the work he's sharing here and the work he's not is that the other work might have some chance in our bleak yet promisingly insane world to have a price-tag attached to it someday, and this work here, even Eric Mayer has the good sense not to charge anybody for reading it. Not to say these two works do not have value; far from it; the point is that aggregate demand is so low for our brand of aesthetic and philosophical inquiry, works such as these, with a fringe entertainment value, make for an excellent "free sample." Bottoms up!
THE JOKEBOOK SPECTRUM
A joke-philosophy that is a philosophy of jokes and a joke of a philosophy.
An attempt to discern how and why art is healing to our psyche.
