The Mainly Annual
EastWesterly Review/Postmodern Village
19th Annual Conference
to Nestlé, a Marketing Manual
by Hershey Kissinger
As a practical guide, Kissinger's paper is a model in modern
spin. As a tasty treat, we thought it lacked butter.
Flip Wilson: Making the World Safe for Black Comedy and the
New Freedom of Topical Stand Up
by William J. Pryan
Pryan's idea that Flip Wilson essentially created a new world
comic order by being black, vaguely issue-oriented, and accepted
by white society is as cogent as the notion that our current
role as the world's policeman is an unintended consequence of
our international success. We're now as taken for granted as
Tyler Perry is successful despite himself.
James Monroe Doctrine, or the Era of Good Feelings, the Era
of Feeling Good, and the Misery Compromise: Freakin’ as
by J. Squincy Adamz
We have to admit that we couldn't follow the premise of this
paper, but we had a really good time getting' down.
& Tina Eisenhower (Proud Mamie Keep on Turnering), or I
Left a Good Job in the Army: the Presidency as Spousal Abuse,
a Complex in Military Industrialization
by John Foster Dullest
The thesis that America's relationship with the Military Industrial
Complex is, essentially, a prolonged domestic dispute is both
compelling and sad. But does this mean that Canada is, like,
some international battered-citizen's shelter? At the very least,
we could engage them as our BC buds.
Purple Hays: Trippin’ in Electoral Collegeland
by Alexander Redding
In an attempt to prove his point about how surreal electoral
results can be, Redding spiked the refreshments with Owsley-level
acid. As near as we could tell from the paper itself, doing
this made as much sense as anything.
Grover Cleveland Rocks: Musical Monetary Policy with Mugwumping
by Richard Ozney
The tunes were catchy and the action camp, but the points
deserved a veto.
James Garfield Sits Around: Fatal Laziness in the Mortally Shot,
an Analysis in Daily Strips
by James G. Davis
Modern medicine meets 'Merican history as Davis argues, controversially
and graphically, that lassitude equals death for those suffering
from severe physical trauma. Could be, but we all know that
true healing happens as a result of lasagna.
Jackson-If-You-Nasty: Dueling for Honor and “Driving old
Hickory,” Double-Entendre as Cultural Current from 1824
to the Present
by Tita van Biggun
The paradox of the double entendre as hidden dishonor presented
in an honorable way proves that the po-mo collapse of the du(e)listic
oppositions predates the awareness of postmodern thought. Those
keeping abreast of the presentation noted the wardrobe malfunction--just
in case that sort of thing gives you any timber.
