Can I just substitute an interpretive dance in place of a list?

Although I am generally of the opinion that I would never be a member of a club that would have someone like me as a member, I decided to give this a try.

a follow up, once you've responded to zentiger

What would you write about in your notebook, if you were in prison?

Re: a follow up, once you've responded to zentiger

I will be prefacing a lot of my responses with this: sorry for the delay.

I was actually thinking about this before you even posed the question, although not in relation to Gramsci. I recently read a story about a man who was in prison for twenty some odd years and was released based on new DNA evidence. The story got me thinking about what I would do in prison for twenty years. I would probably work on an appeal and familiarize myself with the law. Aside from that I would probably read and write about street art from a cross cultural perspective focusing on case studies from around the world (a side interest of mine).

In a Gramsci like case, in which my writings would be scrutinized and I would be forced to censor them, I would probably work on some grand allegory. What form this allegory would take I don't know.

Thank you. Good luck with the rest of your application! I hope you are voted in if you truly want to be a member.
