Spalding Gray Mailing List

This mailing list is somewhat delayed due to my schedule or whatever you call life.I am actually going to school full time plus extra on line course. As that sounds scary, fortunately, it is over soon.> The site is mostly up to date, save for links and such contained in this note. Some of the pages still need updates pictures for example. And I would really like you all to check out the affiliate page. I regard it as in flux. I have some excellent on line stores that I can also justify by saying they are at least remotely, perhaps associated with something Spud like. I even explain some of them.> >> > (put it in your favs or bookmark!)> > I have noted on the site that:> > As of Feb. 2009, this website has become 'haunted' by a spirit - a site spirit - who seems to randomly change jpgs and some fonts.

Trading Dialogue For Lodging (Zen Story from> > Provided he makes and wins an argument about Buddhism with those who live there, any wandering monk can remain in a Zen temple. If he is defeated, he has to move on. > In a temple in the northern part of Japan two brother monks were dwelling together. The elder one was learned, but the younger one was stupid and had but one eye. > A wandering monk came and asked for lodging, properly challenging them to a debate about the sublime teaching. The elder brother, tired that day from much studying, told the younger one to take his place. "Go and request the dialogue in silence," he cautioned. > So the young monk and the stranger went to the shrine and sat down. > Shortly afterwards the traveler rose and went in to the elder brother and said: "Your young broter is a wonderful fellow. He defeated me." > "Rlate the dialogue to me," said the elder one. > "Well," explained the traveler, "first I held up one finger, representing Buddha, the enlightened one. So he held up two fingers, signifying Buddha and his teaching. I held up three fingers, representing Buddha, his teaching, and his followers, living the harmonious life. Then he shook his clenched fist in my face, indicating that all three come from one realization. Thus he won and so I have no right to remain here." With this, the traveler left. > "Where is that fellow?" asked the younger one, running in to his elder brother. > "I understand you won the debate." > "Won nothing. I'm going to beat him up." > "Tell me the subject of the debate," asked the elder one. > "Why, the minute he saw me he held up one finger, insulting me by insinuating that I have only one eye. Since he was a stranger I thought I would be polite to him, so I held up two fingers, congratulating him that he has two eyes. Then the impolite wrtch held up three fingers, suggestin that between us we only have three eyes. So I got mad and started to punch him, but he ran out and that ended it!" > > jb > > ps: it is reported that survived the encounter with the Cargo Cults way down there near Australia and appears to be perhaps still in NYC > (just in from> I'd like to invite you to be my guest for a workshop performance of my new monologue, The Monthly Nut, this Monday (April 6th) at 7PM at The Barrow Group Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 3rd Floor.> > Seating is limited, so please let me know asap:> > 1.
