the circumnexus flea market

See, that’s not true.  As a means to promote this event I just posted on FB that I have no knowledge of market strategies and/or target markets and it’s not that I don’t per se, because I observe their tactics at play quite obsessively at times, a more neurotic form of people watching.  What i lack is application.  We’re losing application so rapidly that if you’re paying attention while you’re in it you can feel your brain stopping, spitting like a bursting radiator, everyone just disappear already so i can buy this shit online.

what is it to know but not apply?  i don’t think we know.  out of fear, discomfort, irascibility, boredom, laziness, we don’t want to know.  not even so much that we don’t want to see ourselves wrong.  more we don’t have the time.  maybe we never did.  there’s never enough time when a bear is chasing you.  there’s always more time to shop around online.

this weekend we’ll build a market out of what we want, not out of what we’re forced into sacrificing.  i want to build with respect to who i am and why i want it and not operate at the exclusion of anyone who questions why, erstwhile aware that i’m privileged to have what i want to exchange in the first place, and with respect to this fact, ideally we build together, with care.  this is not some stab at a utopia, it’s just a market, only as applicable as anyone decides a market should be, only as instructive as your character permits.

The Circumnexus Flea Market takes place November 4-7th at Palanzos Beer at 4614 Liberty ave in Bloomfield.  Liberty Beer is all fancy and shit and put Palanzos out of business before i moved to Pittsburgh.  Palanzos used to look like this.  Then the market changed. All we’re doing is changing it again.  We don’t get to say how yet because it hasn’t happened unless you’re reading this post post 11/7/16 and only then if you bother to start a dialogue going.
