The Autistic Mercury: Chapter 1

Kantbot

You wake up. It’s morning again. Or is it later than that? You’re not entirely certain. You should be getting up for work, but weren’t you fired? It was becoming frequently more common lately after all for social media sites to automatically contact your employers… Maybe you never had a job. You lay in bed. How […]

Alien Contra Art

Kantbot

Ridley Scott enjoys a reputation as one of Hollywood’s last remaining auteurs. A man with a long career of iconic, and at times even, artistically innovative films behind him, Scott has succeeded in cementing himself in the public consciousness as a kind of second-rate, second-generation Stanley Kubrick.

The Sorrow of Telemachus, Painting by Angelica Kauffmann, 1783 “‘Not at all,’ replied Mentor; ‘for by the pains you take to search for able and virtuous men, in order to prefer them, you stimulate and animate all who have spirit and talents, so that they exert themselves to the utmost.

Kantbot

“In all judgements by which we describe anything as beautiful, we allow no one to be of another opinion.”  ― Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment The term ‘velvet buzzsaw’ implies something smooth to the touch but that will take your fingers off if you aren’t careful. It’s no surprise then that it is an euphemism for vagina. As […]

Kantbot

  Bourgeois-Yet-Proletariat: The Sam Kriss Story “The civilized classes present to us the still more repugnant spectacle of indolence, and a depravity of character which is all the more shocking since culture itself is the source of it.

*BEEP BEEP BEEP* The harsh alarm of the buzzer throbbed in the ears of the participants as they suited up in the locker room before their big match.

Jack Dorsey’s Entrepreneurial Apprenticeship

Kantbot

The current situation on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms is untenable, this is a fact widely recognized from all quarters. This situation, however, is unfortunately a complicated one which seems to defy easy analysis. Discussion has so far usually been framed in terms of free speech, but this doesn’t really get at it, […]
