the next time you are engaged in a discussion of critical theory, heavy intellectual or philosophical content— try putting a few of these hand gestures to use…


1. The Dialectic. ‘This is a dialectic and I’m going to explain it.’

Grip imaginary six centimeter object between thumb and forefinger. Rotate wrist ninety degrees, snapping into end position. Smoothly rotate back to start. Repeat up to three times depending on conviction.

Use when expressing a shift from one thing to another. Highly infectious.

2. The Tiny Dialectic. ‘I’m making a very fine distinction’

Follow directions for ‘The Dialectic’ but with thumb and forefinger one centimeter apart. Bring hand toward eyes for closer inspection.

Use when unpacking specific detail, or when too self-conscious to use ‘The Dialectic’ gesture.

3. The Critical Whirl. ‘I’ve read too much Marx and I can’t get my words out’

Circle hand clockwise in a small but rapid motion towards the audience.

Accelerate and repeat until idea unpacked.

A publisher once asked me who my target audience was. For some reason I blurted out, “I’m the Gagne sleeper of LSD.” He asked what that meant and I just shook my head. “I guess you’re not my target audience.” Of course, I didn’t know what the hell it meant either. I was on a lot of drugs in those days.
I do know that I liked the phonetics of the phrase. “I’m the gȯn-yā sleeper of L.S.D.” I repeated it to myself continually like a mantra, like a Beastie Boy’s lyric, for several moons. And for the record, the Beastie Boy voice was Adam Yauch. What Beastie Boy usually voices nonsensical mantras in your head?
And if you are unaware A gagne sleeper is a style of choke hold made popular by 1950s pro rasslin champ Verne Gagne. So, I guess this means my audience would be folks that enjoy old time ‘rasslin and psychedelics. Yep. This feels spiritually true. Thoughts? What feels spiritually true to you?
