GUY CALLING IN TO VANCOUVER'S MOST ANNOYING RADIO STATION: And once I've bought my $400 jeans, I'm always checkin' out other stores, y'know, see if I could've got 'em cheaper at Holt's, or in the mall. But I don't return them! I've already taken them out of the box, I've worn 'em. . . .

CJB: I guess jeans could cost $400 in some Bizarro-world. But I've never heard of jeans that come in a box.

CJB'S SWEETIE "L.": What do you think the brand's called?

CJB: "Yaletown Douche."

Ten Theses

1. Phenomenological reality. "Made from life."

2. The presence of the uncanny, numinous, or supernatural as an aspect of reality.

3. Materiality of the image (Image as a physical object).

4. My anger.

5. Spatial articulation.

6. Compositional "abstraction" vis-a-vis the "field of vision."

7. Pictorial art's reformulation by conceptual art, c. 1967-73.

8. Contemporary art remade as a species of folk art (critique of production).

9. Critique of judgment (institutional, marketplace).

10. Grace, too.
