Nerd Love Redux
Icky, highly generalized and exaggerated definition here.
Post inspired by this bit of truth: Great Moments In Theory I:
Ben Chaplin wooing Janeane Garofalo over the phone with a passage from Camera Lucida in The Truth about Cats and Dogs. "The punctum," recites Chaplain, "is a kind of subtle beyond—as if the image launched desire beyond what it permits us to see: not only toward ‘the rest’ of the nakedness, not only toward the fantasy of a praxis, but toward the absolute excellence of being, body and soul together."
Then they have phone sex and masturbate.
Theory always sounds prettier/sexier than science:
Angular Momentum Love.
But science and math are more honest:
Anthem: This Modern Love by Bloc Party
TV Show: Freaks and Geeks
Comic Book: Jimmy Corrigan, Smartest Kid on Earth
