Stephen King & Radio Craponne, Triptyque/Triptych Fantastic/que

When passionate ardent zealous readers have spent fifty years with Stephen King and his books, his videos, his films, his comic strips, either they become berserk or they become truth diggers, fear miners, horror finders-keepers, like the three chaps in the tub, the butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker, all of them with truth, fear and horror as the three maids, all rub-a-dub-dubbing with energy and intensity one another and each other and even themselves with rags, brushes and other hairy cilices.

Stephen King makes them obsessive-compulsive like most traumatized people surviving with PTSS. But their enjoyment is greater than anything you may imagine, and their pleasure can be cut up and minced with the butcher’s cleaver, and then wrapped up in the dough of a meatloaf before being pushed into the oven of the baker, and it all ends up with a candle-stick burning from both ends and being rub-a-dub-dubbed by the feverish shivering shuddering hands of the addicted mortified reader.

You will find in this maze of reviews and studies references to practically half the books and titles by Stephen King and half a dozen titles of books by his sons and a few other people, including a musical, and of course numerous films, series (mini or not) and videos. You have to enter the forest of these more than one hundred trees by assessing the table of contents and then letting you glide, slip and slide into the rich deep brewing witches’ midnight banquet with the devil on a sacred Black Sabbath celebrating the immolation of Isaac by Isaac’s father, the kicking away to the desert of Ismail and his mother by Ismail’s father, the two fathers being the same man in some sacred books revered by more than half humanity.

Accept your fate and enjoy it. Feel the knife of the executioner ripping your chest open and then his hand dipping into it and uprooting your heart out of your body. Feel your blood seeping out and curdling on the ground. You deserve that cathartic experience to simply survive your humdrum routine-like everyday life. This catharsis might liberate your imagination from all death wish and death instinct, but it may also neutralize all your desire to forgive, pardon and tolerate all your libidinal charitable and generous altruistic desires to be good.

ÇA URGE COSMIQUE

L’UNIVERS BRÛLE

Contre la montée de l’esclavage internautique il n’y a qu’une solution, l’imagination.

Contre l’émergence de la soumission à la fascination onirique et mélodramatique des enfers sociaux il n’y a qu’une fuite libératrice dans les bas-fonds mielleusement bouseux du délire.

Contre la montée des eaux il n’y a qu’une seule façon de ne pas finir noyés, et c’est d’apprendre à nager comme des requins et à dévorer les amateurs qui veulent juste barboter notre fric et flotter au-dessus de la mêlée.

Contre les brutes harcelantes qui pensent avec leurs hormones prenez le taureau par les cornes et enfilez-le par devant par derrière à l’endroit à l’envers et dites-vous bien qu’il en restera toujours un morceau pour le chien.

Ne vous en laissez pas conter de toutes les couleurs, jaune, rouge, noir, bleu marine, ou même vert, car en fait l’important est de n’avoir que l’amour de la peur du supplice et l’adoration de la frayeur de la croix.

Plus tu as froid dans le dos, plus tu souilles tes couches-culottes, plus tu as d’avenir dans ce monde : il n’y a pas de plaisir qui ne soit un peu foireux, à l’empoigne autant qu’à la levée des corps.

Il y a tellement de feu dans les mots et de fiel dans les points-virgules que ces histoires risquent de voue surprendre un peu et de vous titiller là où ça vous gratouille, mais que c’est bon de se grapiller un peu de jouissance dans la glu mesmérisante de l’horreur maravoûtante.

Alors prenez la route et allez-y franchement.

Au plaisir de vous voir écouter et de vous entendre grogner avec la bête.
