Sometimes Charles cracks me up.
Charles, have you written anything about why concrete represents the 'absolute substance?' We all know of your fascination with it as an architectural element and as a phenomenon in and of itself, and I can come up with some very good reasons why that would be so.
However, I'm interested to understand what's at the basis of that fascination. Especially considering that a lot of people conflate concrete as a building material with both fascism and Ayn Rand, oppressive and lacking in personality.
@6, for one, concrete never stops getting harder. the older the concrete, the more difficult it is. roman concrete is nearly impossible.
@7, in that case, my peener becomes the absolute substance while watching Olympic Women's gymnastics.
@8 - I believe Chucky (pardon the pun) beat you to that with his previous comment - though substituting Italian women for the Olympians, natch.
The Pantheon in Rome is the ultimate concrete structure. Not only has it lasted twenty-eight hundred years, it utilizes other materials such as clay pots mixed into it to lighten it. And it was built by who is arguably the most talented queer in history: Emperor Hadrian.
I didn't know him a minute ago, but after a quick Google, I'm in admiration of Norman Lindsay's work.
Concrete is indeed teh awesome.
Hugo Chavez, good Socialist that he is, feels the same way- he just nationalised all the concrete companies in Venezuela, because only the people should own the absolute substance, and if capitalists are allowed to get harder and harder, they too will become "impossible".
I meant eighteen hundred years. Sorry.
