I haven’t posted a Werner Herzog Inspires meme since April. Halloween seems a proper day to begin again dispensing the fine derangement of epitaphs of tripping from the oracular tongue of my Bavarian muse.

Since the Werner Herzog Inspirationals Tumblr is not posting new memes, I’m creatingmy own, and as Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody, puts it, “The stupidest possible creative act is still a creative act.” Words to live by in the latter days of the Internet Age. Steal this meme.

I stole this meme from Werner Herzog Inspirationals.

I made this meme myself:

11.294 - chicken eye

In honor of National Poultry Month.

Bonus viddy: The dancing chicken from Herzog’s 1977 film Stroszek:

If you know anything about Werner, you probably know he loathes chickens. However, his crew on Stoszek hated the dancing chicken so much they refused to film it, and he shot the footage himself.

werner happiness garamond

Google informs me that today is “International Day of Happiness.” Wikipedia informs me that the United Nations in June 2012 proclaimed March 20 International Day of Happiness. So today is the third IDOF. I find happiness by decree suspect, to say the least, but then I suspect “happiness” of being a meaningless abstraction.  Despite the fact that it’s enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, I think the “the pursuit of happiness” is akin to a snipe hunt. One can be happy; happiness can not be achieved.  Being happy is largely a gift of fate, a state of grace, if you have the grace, that is to say detachment, to accept it. Happiness is a conveniently intangible commodity rather like a mortgage derivative.

Werner Herzog makes me happy. John Lennon singing “Happiness is a warm gun yes it is” makes me happy. Bang bang shoot shoot.

werner nerve alone herzog

It is my firm belief, and I say this as a dictum, that all these tools now at our disposal, these things part of of this explosive evolution of means of communication, mean we are now heading for an era of solitude.
