About A Thousand Dreams

"A thousand dreams within me softly burn."
--Arthur Rimbaud

"I am tired, I am weary, I could sleep for a thousand years./A thousand dreams that would await me, different colors made of tears."
--Lou Reed

A  British philosopher named Michael Oakeshott once wrote a book about liberal education, which he re-conceptualized as the human inheritance: "What every man is born to is an inheritance of human achievement: an inheritance of feelings, emotions, images, visions, thoughts, beliefs, ideas, understandings, intellectual and practical exercises, languages, relationships, organizations, canons and maxim of conduct, procedures, rituals, skills, works of art, books, musical compositions, tools, artifacts, and utensils...."

This Patreon is devoted to exploring the shadowy corners of the human inheritance: all that has, at one time or another, been deemed unfit for human consumption. We draw back the veil of revisionist history to reveal the hungers that drove our heroes, and recover details of our nascent faiths. Here you will encounter:


**Shady dealings of Desert Fathers
**Feverish ramblings of a capitalist divas
**Esoteric poems from a tribe of buggerers
**Rapturous fan art for an avowed coprophages
**Libertine lifestyles of rebellious clergy
**Vengeful love poems from celebrated syphilitics
**Mythologies of debauchery

Why do this? Why drag human culture's dirty pillows out into the light?  

1. Because everyone knows that transgression is sexy. Why deny it?
2. Because we're upset about the churlish prudery of our current zeitgeist, and we need to do something about it. 
3. We feel bad about turning liberal education into an extortionate four-year teach-in, and we want to make up for it in some small way. 
Mostly because transgression sexy. It's the life-force, the energy that keeps human culture from collapsing into a poisonous swamp acquiescence.  If you don't find transgression--in at least some of its forms--at least a little bit sexy, then this Patreon is not for you. And if you can't always find the sex in text, but you know its there, we'll be more than happy to point it out to you.

Our content includes:
**Exclusive access to weekly essays, translations, and visual art.
**Exclusive, patron-only editions of "Meet the Rockadopoleis," a weekly podcast in which Jislaaik and Lance talk about  our life together in loving, commitment, and adventurous Female-Led Relationship.
**Exclusive access to "Bookstrap," a weekly vlog in which Jislaaik discusses books from a variety of genres on such topics as cultural transgression, alternative lifestyles, and spirituality.
**Weekly multimedia lectures on a wide variety of topics persons.
**The Alturgical Calendar and Kinky Book of Days--a daily celebration of alternative culture and transgressive spirituality.

**The opportunity to help guide our growth and development as we evolve into the premier print and online alternative liberal arts curriculum for adventurous adults. 


About the contributors: Jislaaik Rockadopolis is a lapsed academic, wannabe libertine, and lifestyle Femdom devoted to transgression in most of its forms. She has a PhD in English and an MAEd in curricular theory. Above all else, she enjoys talking, thinking, and writing about art and ideas, as well as taking outrageous liberties with French and Spanish poetry.

Lance Rockadopolis is Jislaaik's super geeky and fairly right-wing henchman/majordomo/plaything/creative partner.
