I caught the last half of the Bundy Boy Show on OPB last night. Here is a good example of Joaquinism, a new term I invented to discribe Cowboy Autochithon, a word I first read in the paragraph below. Joaquin Miller influenced Buffalo Bill who put on quite a show. To see Bundy Boy Riders riding their horses in front of the courthouse, was a Greek Drama, not unlike the story of Helen of Troy. The Greeks believed they were ‘The Source of All Things’. Trump tapped into this by saying ‘Make the Greeks great again!’ The mockery is a big part of the new martyrdom.

The Bundy Boys took over a reserve where Native American artifacts were found. They took over the spirit of the aboriginal peoples who populated the Americas for fifty thousand years. Their Christian Faith forced them to take this stance, because they believe God-Jesus led the White Man to the Americas, and, The One God (verses many gods of both sexes) did not bid the aborigines to cross the Baring Straight – because they had too many gods! Miller and the Bohemian Authors struggle with this destruction of Real History. Cal-Shasta was a symbol that did not work until the Gathering of the Tribes in Golden Gate Park.
“Yet for all his posturing, Joaquin Miller, who took the name “Joaquin” in a fit of indignity over San Francisco’s mockery of his poem “Joaquin Marietta,” was the most forceful literary personality to emerge in 19th century California. Ironically, this poet so widely regarded as a fraud is frequently acknowledged as the first authentically Western voice; as a writer whose bullish attempts to body forth the spirit of the Sierras prefigured many great Californian writers to follow, including John Muir, John Steinbeck, Mary Austin, Gary Snyder and Robinson Jeffers. In his study Archetype West, the Bay Area poet William Everson cites Miller’s autobiographical fiction, Unwritten History: Life Among the Modocs, as the “inception point to the Western archetype,” claiming that in its ambitious fusion of myth, fact and nature, Miller “emerges permanently as the West’s first literary autochthon.”
After the law firm of Brevoort Buck took over my families Creative and Historic legacy and sold it to a hostile outsider, I swung my Bohemian forces around to attack Buck’s right flank. In theory, I own the tower built by Robinson Jeffers. Lacy Buck in on the board.
Who could foresee the return of the Dramatic Western? My muse and I wrote the script. To discover the star of the T.V. show ‘Broken Arrow’ married the granddaughter of Rudolph Friml who composed the MUSic for ‘Rose-Marie’ tells me the Cowmuses are not done, and may be making a comeback. Being cantankerous and opposed to something is the main ingredient in a good Western. Rena is an Aries and I am a Libra, thus we are 180 degrees apart as we circle each other at the Oakie…
