dase1n123

Why has Bladee, and #DrainGang by extension, resonated with the right-wing Twittersphere? What about his music lends Bladee and his branding to a reactionist perspective?

The Open World Panopticon

Anonymous

The Open World beckons us to explore, to discover, to adventure. Her Siren song lures us into a dream world where everything is real and nothing is impossible. But caress the outer limits of her boundaries and you will find you inhabit a carefully constructed artifice, a mockery of freedom. You are not free to go […]

Tribute to Gene Wolfe: Testament to the Immortality of Genius

Logo Daedalus

When people ask me who the greatest authors still living are, the two that came most swiftly to my mind were always Thomas Pynchon & Gene Wolfe. I can no longer say this. It appears that Mr. Wolfe passed away today, & we are poorer for it. Fortunately for me, a Wolfe fan, & for […]

“I admit defeat. I am a coward at life, a quitter, a contender whose hands have grown listless. O reader, you who may have followed me so faithfully through so many ups and downs, pity me! I, who might have been so much and am so little, salute you. I pass into the limbo of mental […]

Wonder, “Must We Divide History Into Periods” – by Jacques Le Goff

Anonymous

The topic of historical periodization is a popular one because it is easy to make arguments about with no requirement to commit fully to them. Consistent with the mood of academia across disciplines, the idea of a natural, universally applicable periodization scheme determined by some underlying form that shapes the trajectory of society, culture, economics, or […]

Anonymous

336 = January 15th, 2018, programmer-mystic Harrison Partch declares in a video of his Triptych, the right panel “I, PROPHETESS: POPPY IN THE PANOPTICON”. The Triptych primarily correlates varying states of consciousness in three internet phenomena, and discusses a mountain of other subjects that connect lucidly after a few re-viewings. “Jordan B Peterson: Beyond the Enigma”, left […]

Anonymous

by Special Anonymous Contributor “Particles decay, molecules disintegrate, cells die, organisms perish, species become extinct, planets are destroyed and stars burn-out, galaxies explode… until the unfathomable thirst of the entire universe collapses into darkness and ruin. Death, glorious and harsh, sprawls vast beyond all suns, sheltered by the sharp flickerlip of flame and silence, cold […]
