Nerd Love Redux

Icky, highly generalized and exaggerated definition here.

Commercialized 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
