Understandable though these doubts may be, we can in fact derive from Benjamin’s reflections on hashish an insight into both the “aura” and the artwork essay. “Nothing conveys as accurate a conception of the genuine aura as van Gogh’s late paintings, which could be described as all things painted with their accompanying aura,” wrote Benjamin reflecting on a hashish session in March 1930. He was affirming, contrary to the sense in which the theosophists used the term, that the aura was not a “magic ray” attached to just a few things or people, but was instead an “ornamental periphery” to all things and beings. As usual, Benjamin did not make himself unambiguously clear, but in his remarks on Van Gogh he was linking “aura” not only to the drugged state but also to aesthetic experience. Perhaps the expressionistic painterliness of the late Van Goghs, combined with some knowledge of the Dutch artist’s quasi religious understanding of his paintings, suggested to Benjamin that the thick impasto and vivid colors could be understood semiotically.

Bush’s wars in the Middle East, Medicare Part D, and the Wall Street bailout none of which Republicans even tried to pay for.More recently which is to say, a few months ago Ryan helped champion a GOP tax plan that adds $1 trillion to the deficit over the next decade.With this in mind, no one should be fooled into thinking the House Speaker is genuinely committed to tackling “debt and deficits.” Ryan’s record obviously points in the opposite direction.But what I’m especially interested in is the degree to which the Republican leader’s rhetoric bolsters Democratic predictions.Today’s installment of campaign related news items from across the country.
His favorite band is Green Day. Much of life is a punchline to him. When he walks into a room, regardless whether he knows anybody, he banters with everyone and quickly becomes, if not the center of attention, a source of comic relief..
