straw dogs is my new weblog.  I like how something you haven’t written yet may have a vague form, in the back of your head, but really exists more accurately as an undefined hope or projection. 


This weblog is principally about contemporary culture and its discontents – media, political, arts culture. 


The bit about discontents is a carry over from my other blog, coromandal.  The idea is that in culture, purported meaning is almost always significantly different from underlying meaning.  straw dogs are substitutes.  They are devices used to distract attention away from what is actually going on.  They are everywhere if you look and are willing to see


I welcome your comments and ideas; please contact me in the comments box below.
