MediumA song and an LP by Lou Reed. This poet of rock’n’roll theorized a joyful renounce to thinking, to poetizing . As much as Pier Paolo Pasolini equated, in his poem entitled “Verso le Terme di Caracalla” the equation of dementia and beatitude (he used the words “beota, stupid, and “beato”, blessed, to describe an old drunk). This is it. The big motorcycle, the dragster bike V-Max by Yamaha: so pictorial, so aesthetically exciting, the overwhelming violence of its acceleration. Adrenaline, drugs, rock’n’roll, wild nights.
