Read & Download Lookout Cartridge 107 He highest ambition to redeem the great claim of paranoia on the American psyche In trying to figure out just who is so threatened by an innocent piece of cinema verité filmed in collaboration with a friend Cartwright finds himsel. Perhaps even demanding than Women and Men Lookout Cartridge is McElroy s talent on full display Much can be said of the man s prose which is at times a brick wall and others a raft along a river but it s really what he s able to do with that prose that wallops you the dear reader In LC there s a noir ish mystery to be unfurled and because of McElroy s prose style he s able to render the truest elements of confusion incomprehension and messiness of a real shaggy dog story in true mystery the tight wrap ups and effective clever solutions undermine the veracity of the story telling but here Cartwright s mission never is fully revealed and our understanding of it can only come through the multi facet view we re able to access through associations characters and vagueries If you want uick pat solutions this is not the book for you but if you re here reading reviews of McElroy s work then you re probably not that type anywayI ve come to describe McElroy s prose as stream of pre conscious I think this best encapsulates what he does and is doing in his artistic use of our language That is to say where Joycean stream of conscious has a verbalistic uality to it McElroy s precludes the organizing principles of a consciousness and therefore he captures the true spontaneity of thought feeling and mentation Further when the reader lives in this pre conscious thought world it has a startling effect of implanting thoughts and memories so that while the reader may think she is struggling at comprehension there will eventually in the book come a moment a strand of text the perfect ordering of words that fills the gaps and transmogrifies confusion into clearer concepts In LC McElroy breaks down time s linearity to reconstruct scenes and moments over and over again processing the information of a scene in a different new way each time so that the reader can slowly acuire the fullest view of a frame but because it s done so meticulously it s not until the end of the book that those full frames come all at once snapping in place though still obscured defying omniscient revelation after all there is no such thingThe book acting like a cartridge itself can only be deciphered for the screen behind our eyes once it has been inserted into our mechanistic computer brain I ll admit freely that many moments of this book got away from me and still remain un begotten like ripe fruit on the branch after harvest Perhaps after I ve read through the rest of his catalog I ll revisit this tree and pluck those fruits from their arboreal home Sweet rewards to look forward to like any great book I can t wait to keep coming back

Lookout Cartridge is an utterly cinematographic novel a camera flutters seemingly at random filming everything it manages to focus on every insignificant material object every casual event and every trifle of existence And dark points come and move almost as if sound and speed have become identical but not uite for I can see them move They are like genes in a microphotographThis light without sound is not the beginningWas there a beginningSound without illumination maybeSuch a field of noise was coming everywhere from tile concrete the chill blown street above the tracks below and even as if from the change booth where a black girl in blue smoked cartwheel glasses pushed out tokens without looking up from her paper that till I was through the turnstile and to the brink of the escalator and put my foot on it hearing behind me the click of steps closing fast yet seeming oddly slow I didn t guess why the toddling graybeard in a herringbone with the hems drooping who d preceded me through the turnstile had made for the stairs insteadThe book is an elaborately designed meandering absurdist mystery Two friends shoot an ostensibly inconseuential film that seems to be nothing but the crude amateurish garbageA softball game in Hyde Park a bonfire in Wales a Hawaiian hippie and his girlfriend from Hempstead Long Island playing guitar in the London Underground A suitcase slowly packed People in a marvelous country mansion doing things inside and outside and ignoring a moonshot on a television set under a table umbrella out on a rainy patio A Corsican montage featuring an international seminar on ecology Toward the middle of August Stonehenge In the end a US Air Force base A uick 8 mill cartridge of some pals of Dagger s the night we got back from shooting at the baseBut despite the obviously trashy ualities of the film some miscreant penetrates into the friend s house and destroys the tapes As if shooting this rubbishy movie wasn t enough the protagonist has been writing a diary scrupulously describing the process of filming and now the hunt for the diary commences Chaotic burglaries purposeless pursuits rummaged apartments furtive shadowing and so on Nothing seems to be accidental and all the miscellaneous participants turn out to be interconnectedThe action consists of the current events and flashbacks of the incessant travelling from place to place but gradually everything blends all times become one time all places become one placeStill as my Druid says in each age arise unlikely tongues which nonetheless may help us the gods of the body s warm organs may show themselves now not through a burning bush or a martyr s funny bone on fire or in the mysteries of appetite but along intangible electronic canals where slippery loops joining pancreas and lung bowel and eye become for the sake of a diagram s current straight lines and right angle transits and clarity s pulse waits for the gate which if open may flip whole futures of gates drawing that pulse like a spasm of the greater body through gods who blink and gods who do not blink until at some crux near the analogic cog or digital core a twinge of harmony is heard like someone else s painEverything in this world isn t what it may seem The sensible world is just a product of maya a hollow appearance an illusion dreamt by the omnipotent demon and no human being can step outside this sensible world
