Espen: Patricia McGuffin & Martin Heidegger in Das Ding und das Werk: While reading Martin Heidegger’s Der ursprung des kunstwerkes, I asked myself: How would Pat, a quick-witted, precocious nine-year-old, “translate” Heidegger’s wordy, esoteric prose? I might make more of these strips, where Pat tells us what philosophers are really saying.
Pat, The Operator: A cute, little song written by Steinar.
Pat & Moz Talk About Precious Things: Just some vague and not-so-vague references to The Smiths and Morrissey songs.
Steinar: Pat may not have had the chance to catch up on Heidegger’s Der Ursprung der Kunstwerkes, but she is surely an æsthetician par excellance in her own right. This is the first Pat Ding Espen wrote, I think . (Yup. -Espen) I love the way Moustache’s art critic babbling “disappears” behind Pat’s head. I wonder whether that is Van Gogh on the wall there, though. (It is. -Espen) The Krafwerk-thing was inspired by the song (if that is the word) wherein the narrator (that is the word) coldly asserts his mastery of that technical wonder. I never bothered with my Texas Instruments by the way, as it never played any melody whichsoever key I pressed. Lastly, the Morrissey interview is a small demonstration of just what sort of stupid questions the guy has endured.
