    theres an exhileration and a huge sense of fun in junior walkers music, but is it joy?
    if youre receptive it can make you feel joyful, expansive, heart swollen, breathing big ragged delicious breaths

    realise that will be firmly behind the barbed wire and breezeblocks of the time barrier for most of you.

    Obviously Curtis is genius. Me? I never found him joyous at all, see what Barty said (explained it better than me). I love Curtis but no. Maybe all the joy has gone in me. Looking at it, some people say joy is a thing that you live with, some people say joy isn't pleasure. I equate joy with an awakening, y'know, the religious thing. I get it with Curtis and that track and we play it alot but it doesn't send me to joy, just happeniness. Happeniness

    again i feel im just one or two degrees short of joy here. falling foul of the sensible party/joy distinction.

    becasue its the body throwing off the shackles isnt it. taking the brakes off. showing you how to enjoy.

    Set in 1920s New York City, the novel depicts the elderly Harlem houngan PaPa LaBas and his companion Black Herman racing
    against the Wallflower Order, an international conspiracy dedicated to monotheism and control, as they attempt to root out the cause of and deal with the "Jes Grew" virus, a personification of ragtime, jazz, polytheism, and freedom.

    but it's still the body- hence why it's joy and not transcendence.
