Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for May 2020

So far, approximately $111.38 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 45% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 May!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

You think this is a game? You think you're a troll? An asshole? A dick? You think you're a tough guy, huh? Well, I got news for you little man, you're nothing. In here, you're nobody. Is this where you want to end up? You're laughing now, huh? But I got something I'm going to fill you in on, if you think this is a game, you're wrong. Look over there, you see him? You know who that is? That's Dick Masterson, of the Dick Show. Is that how you want to end up? Like him? Like me? Doing a Podcast?

You better think real hard about your actions, or before you know it people will be making Reddit posts about you and you'll be sucking a big fat mic for Patreon buxxx. You think this is a game? People get hurt. Every day. You want to end up locked up in a brand, behind subscriber metric bars? Is that what your mom and dad wanted for you, you think? I got news for you. This isn't a game. So listen up. This stuff is real. It'll mess you up. You think this is a game? Podcasting is a life sentence.

Episode 16: Facts and Logic: Red Alert (w/ Thaddeus Russell) 2020-05-23T07:52:32+00:00close

Dr. Thaddeus Russell PhD, CEO of Renegade University, has taught at Columbia University, Barnard College, Lang College, the New School for Social Research, and Occidental College. He has a PhD in History from Columbia University, which is tied with Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale University for the position of #3 Ranked National University in the United States according to U.S. News & World Report, 2020.

I'm very pleased that Dr. Russell was able to join me today for a free and open exchange of knowledge on the marketplace of ideas. Dr. Russell challenged me to a debate on Stalinism, and its superiority to everything he believes. I was more than happy to oblige, the humble pseud I may only be. I think though I was able to keep the good Doctor on his toes.

Please enjoy, and see which school reigns supreme.

Pseudodoxia - 24 May 20 03:40
Absolutely none of it is Esoteric. I'm asking him about pretty standard works. I asked him if he read Paul Hazard's "Crisis of the European Mind" is a foundational classic of Enlightenment Studies. He's an American History professor. And he hasn't studied the Enlightenment? Even though America is an Enlightenment project? I asked him about Gil Blas by Lesage, and Telemachus by Fénelon. Huckleberry Finn is an American Gil Blas, and Twain even described it as such! What about Telemachus? It was a didactic moral and political novel for children. Written by Fenelon as an instructional book for his pupil, the Dauphin of France, the heir to the French throne. The novel was one of the most popular and influential books of the 18th century. It's mentioned in basically any study of the Enlightenment. And you know what? The founding fathers certainly knew it. In fact, here's a list of must have books for a library that Thomas Jefferson gave in 1771. It includes both Telemachus and Gil Blas: https://founders.archives.gov/documents/Jefferson/01-01-02-0056

I was speaking specifically to your references to "julia" and "clarissa" which you already know nobody has read, whether you think they should've or not, so you playing "Gotcha!" with professors about 18th century literature or whatever philosophical texts you deem important, that's not useful and you're clearly doing it ironically....i will say he wasn't exactly quick to make ANY interesting counterpoints or call you out in any way so it did look bad but don't do shit like this man it's pointless and in bad faith and you just come across as an asshole who isnt serious

i mean, the guy clearly wanted to have a sincere discussion and you steamrolled him with book recommendations...who wants to listen to that? since you like to think you're giving out lessons you should take one on brevity and clarity of thought
user avatar
Pseudodoxia - 24 May 20 07:55
Many people have read them. Jack read Clarissa. If me and Jack can, why can't he? I get it. Your attempt to pretend like none of what I said is real or matters is no better than what you're saying I did. He literally asked me to explain a critique of modernity, and I did so by citing essential texts. Zizek has interpreted Julie. Julie is a major work by Rousseau. It's one of the best selling books of the 18th century. Thad likes TV and Hollywood. I understand the problem. He's not really a scholar. Just some guy who works in pretty basic level public discussion using talking points you could just hear anywhere else for free. No denying that he's pretty unqualified on these topic fields. The issue is more just, it was a bit hard to watch. It's easy to feel sorry for this guy. I think it did shake him a bit. And I'm not going to say I don't feel a little bad about showing him up like this. But he's a big boy. He charges people a lot of money for the shit he puts out. He wanted to debate a Marxist. He even wanted Aimee Terese. He came on here, and I gave him a Marxist to argue with. I tried talking to him a bit more before we did this. But he wasn't responsive. When we got on Skype we spoke a bit and he seemed fully aware of my "trolling." I mean, really, he just thought it was gonna be softball shit and he capitulated and gave in and didn't make an effort to be interesting and or respond. It's probably not the best feeling for him walking out of it. But I don't think it's a big deal. He's on Joe Rogan. I'm pretty small time in comparison. I gave him some cred for being a good sport. I don't have anything against him. I even sent him some dms trying to explain my position in more detail to him, to which he didn't respond. So it was kind of embarrassing, yeah. But he's a grown ass man, he's 54 years old and is happy to advertise his academic background and credentials in order to sell peole $1000 internet courses. Dude is not a baby.

Episode 14: Dashamania (w/ Dasha) 2020-05-14T02:23:51+00:00close

She had it all: Fame. Fortune. Youth. Beauty. Once upon a time she was the darling of Indie Filmmaking's golden age, but all fame is fleeting, and this notorious podcasting starlet has spent the last three months far away from the public's prying eyes.

Cloistered and quarantined within her Brooklyn estate's private screening room, she now shuns the spotlight that at one time favored her so. Over and over she instructs her dedicated Secular-Jewish manservant to press play on her blu-ray copy of End of Evangelion -- the Ice Station Zebra to her weebish Howard Hughes.

Though she's gone by many names, her fans call her... Dasha

Channeling the powerful women she made a career for herself playing on the big screen, she's not about to go down without a fight. What she doesn't know though could kill her, as she's about to discover the one person standing in the way of her success -- turns out to be herself. You can't put a price on fame even if its paid in blood! Look out Hollywood, because Dasha's about to stage a killer comeback... Literally!

This week on the Pseudcast... It's Dashamania, as Dasha reprises the role that first made her a star. That's right cinephiles -- Guest starring as Dasha, its Dasha! And if that's not enough excitement for one episode, joining her as Dasha is the one and only Dasha!

As always only one man is up to the job of bringing so devious a killer to justice... Starring as the world's most famous detective is Peter Falk playing Columbo. Will he unravel the reels of deception? Will he expose the negative of Dasha's ice cold heart and give her a showing she didn't expect? Or has he finally met his match as he goes toe to toe with the hypnotizing power of Hollywood?

The Pseudodoxological New Atlantis Science Network is proud to present another exciting episode of... The Pseudcast.

33:25 - My favorite part of Schiller's Aesthetic Education from Letter XXIV—“What is Man before Beauty lures from him his free enjoyment and tranquil form tempers his wild life? Eternally uniform in his aims, eternally shifting in his judgements, self-seeking without being himself, unfettered without being free, a slave though serving no rule. At this period the world to him is merely destiny, not yet object; everything has existence for him only insofar as it secures existence for him what neither gives to him nor takes from him, is to him simply not there. Every phenomenon stands before him single and isolated, just as he finds himself in the ranks of beings. Everything that is, is to him through the instant’s word of command; every change is for him an entirely fresh creation, since together with the necessity *within himself* he lacks that necessity *outside himself* which binds together the varying shapes into a universe, and, with the passing of the individual, holds law firmly upon the scene of action. […] Either he hurls himself at objects and wants to snatch them into himself in desire; or else the objects force their way destructively into him, and he thrusts them from him in abhorrence. […] Ignorant of his own human dignity, he is far removed from honoring it in others, and conscious of his own savage greed, he fears it in every creature that resembles him.He never perceives others in himself, himself in others; and society, instead of expanding him into the species, only confines him ever more closely inside his individuality."

Dasha uses the word 'auteur' properly Kantbot; "I'm not a pretentious person...." keep telling yourself that BUDDY! 😅 you're just jealous of Dasha's scholarly and cultured intelligence, as well you should be, you grimy little nerd, full of precious sentiments and the underlying pathologies that produce them. There's a constant stream of low-level arrogance that belies a profound well of underlying shame and self-loathing, repressed from conscious awareness of course, it's far too horrible to look at directly. Maybe I should invite you on MY new podcast and we'll have a good struggle session! Actually I should go on yours first, I need to raise my profile, start getting some subscriptions, build some broad appeal among professionals with spare cash. But you won't do that until you know who I am, so I better get to work with some lesser lights, toil in the trenches a while to raise my credibility and cachet. I'm Vranak aka EmeraldOven aka inlieuofcoin over on reddit, and @cjwright79 on twitter and instagram and youtube. Vranak has over a million karma on reddit, but it was banned on redscarepod in December so now I use inlieuofcoin instead.

Episode 13: Asymmetrical Battle of the Bands (w/ Jake Hanrahan) 2020-05-10T05:24:13+00:00close

Tonight's the night, and everyone is out rocking their best fits. It's the big Battle of the Ideological Bands, and every scene in town has its own champion in the show. As the concert hall fills up though, and tensions rise between the anarchists and the tankies, and the left libertarians and right libertarians come to blows, one man remains aloof, Jake Hanrahan of Popular Front. A man without a scene. The single guy in town too cool to be tied down a single ideology.

The theorists slowly file in, through the back entrance of the venue we call post-post-post modernity, depending on who you ask anyway. These guys are hip, you can tell by how they dress, the pins they fly on their jackets, the carefully chosen iconography of whatever bullshit they believe displayed proudly across every article of clothing. For weeks now they've practiced, regurgitating their pedantry of choice. When they get up stage, they know just how to dazzle, with flourishes of the choicest jargon adorning the most frenzied rhetorical shredding audiences have ever seen.

Jake "Post-Ideological" Hanrahan though, he has something these other acts don't. A style all his own, and his ideology can't be bought in any store. He's developed it in clubs all over town, watching every act up there tonight. Like a chameleon, he moves in and out, undetected, between the carefully constructed commodified identities everyone else adopts. He doesn't care what these hipsters think of him, and he's about to rock their world with the performance of a lifetime. He'll give them a something they haven't seen before, a truth solo that's out of this world. The only question? Whether the audience is ready.

Episode 12: Return of the Rush Hour Renegades (w/ Logo and Nightmare Vision) 2020-05-09T17:11:35+00:00close

The year is 20XX, there is no more culture, the institutions are dead. The journalists and blue checkmarks are extinct, nothing anymore but a forgotten whisper. A new class of media elite rule, the Pseuds are the masters of culture, and the celebrities of old huddle in little holes, fearing for their fame, knowing there is nothing they can do but submit to the dominion of the Pseudodoxology Network.

Does this sound like some faraway dream, or, perhaps, a nightmare? No, it's happening right now, as the Network takes over the entire Earth, and reduces the prestige of the old order to rubble. On this episode, we're joined by Logo and Nightmare Vision, members of the inner circle of Pseud, to discuss the cultural transformations currently at work, and how there's no going back. How we're speeding inexorably towards a New World, where everyone is as dumb as us.

Imposter syndrome big in biz world too -- to me it is lack of confidence. Or maybe you know your product is not good enough but profit motive is 2 strong. Many say: "Feeling of product, dream, is the value" but I think they know in their hearts that it is wrong to put out shoddy crafts. I failed this path in Past. I wonder too if the sex motive cause this in people on bigger scale. Those who mold themselves for da fk. Is this imposter or is this power and free will? Or does it come down to shoddy crafts again hmm, mmm? Some will argue, but I don't know what's what. Maybe some people are born imposters -- doomed to never feel as if they belong in their skin. Maybe some people enjoy the burning sensation of being this thing, pain feels important. And pleasure fleeting, but joy is deep -- slow like whale that eats big cool ship. But I know that I have changed at least, and I do not feel imposter-ish.

excellent episode. i'll reference 2 charts to show why the establishment isn't catching up with the edgy new content as millennials hope: https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/01/05/fewer-americans-rely-on-tv-news-what-type-they-watch-varies-by-who-they-are/ https://www.census.gov/prod/2010pubs/p25-1138.pdf simply, we are in the golden age of Boomerism due to the sheer size of their demo, and this generation is comparable much smaller in scale (fewer kids in late capitalism). It's just economics and macro trends. Look for adjustments in 2030s and I'll be certain that you folks will be the gatekeeper of the next decade and tweens who mainlined pewdiepie and minecraft will complain about how your memes are antiquated and uninspired. Cheers this has been my favorite episode so far, apart from the Akira one.

Episode 11: Socrates was a Wisconsinite (w/ Zola Jesus) 2020-05-05T01:19:46+00:00close

Deep in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, legends circulate, of a frightful witch cooking up curses. Spoken of only in whispers by the townsfolk she terrorizes, she long ago cast off the shackles of her Christian name, and branded herself according to some ancient tongue long unheard, as Zola Jesus. Exiled even from the unholy coven to which she once belonged, now only swarms of black patreon ravens supply her with the materials she requires to work her mischief.

She flips open her spellbook, her rack of samples and synths, running her finger down the list until she comes across one wicked sounding enough to further her sinister ends. A great hound, her loyal familiar, howls mightily in the distance.

"Yes," she cackles, "this will do nicely."

As she concocts her strange brew, and throws together her foul ingredients, the multitracks begin to stir, coming to life and twisting in a cyclonic din of electronics around her ears. An unwholesome miasma envelops the room, the putrefying plastic of her workstation's circuitry as it strains itself to death fills her snorting nostrils. The lights flicker and faint, as her magic is made manifest, and every ounce of power is sucked into the whirring fans of her desktop.

An image of a primordial ritual, some Walpurgisnacht long ago, she stands unflinching in the deepening dread and doom, and far from any fear, she feels now only exaltation at her diabolical offering. "The Master will be most pleased," she revels, sinful in her pride at her own handiwork. The moment has at last arrived. Out of the depths issues a voice.

"Hey there, thanks for joining us Zola, glad to have you on the Pseudodoxological Official Pseudcast."

Bonus Battle: Curtis "Methuselah" Yarvin Vs Fragrant Jack 2020-05-03T19:47:14+00:00close

The clash of the century, the event of a lifetime! In the red corner, the Usenet Brawler, Curtis Yarvin. In the blue corner, the underdog, the hungry pup, my friend Jack from the Perfume Nationalist!

Yarvin has talked a big game in the past, trying to flaunt his stuff as a man of taste, as a connoisseur of culture. But its time to put that to the test, against the hungry sniffer, Jack.

They go head to head, each picking three films, albums, and books to try and out-culture one another. Things get heated. Curtis tries to "out-gay" Jack. Punches fly. Who will be declared the winner in this battle of taste?

Unfortunately, due to an accident immediately prior to the start of the fight, Yarvin threw out his hip and broke his audacity, meaning his audio was dumped and this show has gritty, fight-worthy fidelity from our discord call.

User #33472092 - 6 May 20 00:24
Hey Kantbot, if you ever get around to appeasing Curtis with his gift of a debate with “nazis”, I know he had mentioned Mike Enoch.. but I feel like it would just devolve into a technicality discussion of history, “where were the smokestacks, Weimar was awful” kind of stuff.. As an alternative, I recommend Cultured Thug. I think his YouTube channel is C T. He’s more into fascist ideology & is well versed on the topic. Also he isn’t interested in “give me muh white rights or muh ethnostate.” Just think it would actually be a good conversation to have.

Episode 10: Occupy Wizards of the Coast (w/ Sean P. McCarthy) 2020-05-01T02:07:38+00:00close

So me and my buddy, Sean McCarthy were hanging out at my house, dueling in some Magic the Gathering games, playing Donkey Kong Country 2, drinking capri sun, and we got to talking, about maybe doing this totally tubular Pseudcast episode. I thought it was a killer idea, so I got out my Talkboy tape recorder (as seen in the movie Home Alone II) and we just had a nice chat about Populism, Occupy Wall Street being a psyop, the CIA, how much Stephen Colbert sucks. The usual topics. Then my mom drove Sean home.

Next time I'm going over to Sean's house, he has Creepy Crawlers. He's on Disc 2 of Final Fantasy 8. Man Sean is so cool. He's my best friend. Check out the show he records on his boombox with his little brothers about the epic Monopoly sessions they have for family game night at Sean's house. They get to eat popcorn and watch TGIF on ABC Family Network. Okay, bye everyone.

Isn't it sorta unfortunate that Epstein was memed into boringness? It's like that was part of the plan, no? They suicide him in front of everyone, it becomes a t-shirt, then everyone who claims to care about these things loses interest.
user avatar
User #8456185 - 3 May 20 18:42
Idk there's a lot of psyop stuff related to Epstein that is pointing the finger in so many different directions. Intentional to say the least. The same sort of stuff happened with the Franklin Scandal and the Mark Dutroux trial with the main difference being that the links to power were more concrete and harder to obfuscate. Also, both involved accusations of child murder that were hard to refute. Franklin Scandal wikipedia page was heavily redacted two days before Epstein indictments were released but there are some great books about it. The Mark Dutroux story makes Epstein look like a saint to be honest, the Belgian government nearly lost all legitimacy when that story broke. However, it looks like the FBI and media have learned from their previous mistakes and have only left little nuggets of insight into the whole Epstein mess that leads to a frenzy of conjecture with every theory adding a new layer of confusion. Idk, the Belgians literally let a serial killer and child snuff film-maker go free so he could clean up his mess and aided in "disappearing" his corroborating witnesses. The first time I read abt Dutroux I had to keep pinching myself because it was so difficult to wrap my head around that kind of corruption. Not the case with Epstein tho.

Episode 9: Speedrunning on Empty (w/ RWhiteGoose) 2020-04-30T01:52:44+00:00close

You've waited your whole life for this. You've trained. You've perfected your craft. You've devoted thousands of hours. You're ready. Flown by black helicopter to a remote island, you're about to meet with... The Elite. The greatest Goldeneye 007 for the N64 speedrunners in the world. The fastest. The deadliest. They're waiting to be impressed. Do you think you have the right stuff?

Before you have a chance, though, on your way from the helicopter pad, your convoy is attacked. A mysterious man in black pulls you out of the back seat and spirits you away. Who is this Zoro type rogue? He pulls away his mask, revealing his face. "Could it be? But I thought he was dead," you wonder to yourself. It's none other than Punished Goose . Formerly one of the greatest Goldeneye runners the the game had ever known. Now, an exile, documenting the secret and forbidden lore of speedrunning from his illegal youtube broadcasting station somewhere in South Africa.

He stretches out his hand, a wry smile on his face. "I'm here to save you," he says. Do you take it? Will you side with the Elite? Or with this madman speedrunning terrorist? The choice is yours.

Very quick update.

The Red Scare episode is up. I highly recommend listening to this one. Trust me.

My engineer has been a bit busy, the Goose episode is being mastered and will be up as soon as its done. Recording with Sean McCarthy today still, so stay tuned for both.

First episode of May will be Zola Jesus, on Monday.

Thank You 2020-04-28T00:52:36+00:00

Thanks everyone, I think things are off to a good start for our new enterprise. I'm very happy with the quality of the show so far, and think we're over the hump on getting things off on a good foot. Going to be rounding out the initial round of shows with RWGoose, Elite Goldeneye Speedrunner, tonight. And Sean McCarthy on Wednesday. And I'm on for a special appearance on Red Scare tomorrow. The event at Rhizome is on hold, and I haven't been told all the details. Apparently it's the typical deal about not platforming psionic terrorists and some people behind the scenes thought it was "problematic," but I don't know the full story. I got in touch with Nick Pinkerton though about doing the Pseudcast with me independently and he seems game.

"TFW No GF" is up on Amazon if you want to check it out, it came out well in the end, and there's some nice closure happening behind the scenes. After two years of being involved in its production, I'm at least happy that it got a release and people got to see it. But I am planning on doing a follow up show with the people featured in the movie to talk about their perspective on being in it.

There will be more things I'm going to get going in the upcoming month, but will probably back off from this break neck release pace. I've just been working hard to get a backlog of episodes in place for a good foundation. But I'm generally always on my guest grind working things out with people. Nick Land will hopefully be one of the first guests in May. And Liturgy is on board too. We'll be doing a show with Nightmare Vision and E Michael Jones very soon too to discuss his Logos Rising book. And Ken Liu shot me an email saying he'd like to come back on once he has a few new stories under his belt. And I've gotten back in touch with Sam Hyde, who liked how the movie came out too, and will probably talk to him about being on the show at some point down the line. But there's always stuff in the works, and the machine is in motion to land some real big boys like Adam Curtis, so who knows what will happen.

I'm happy to be able to make some good shows for you guys, and I appreciate your support. Please send me a Patreon msg and I will get back to you if you have any questions, suggestions, or need anything. Doing these shows is a lot of fun for me, and I'm glad you guys get a kick out of them. Thanks.

Episode 8: Revolutionary Virology (w/ Cody Wilson) 2020-04-27T07:54:40+00:00close

A viral CAD file has escaped from a research lab in Austin, and its engineer is pursued across the world by authorities. His name is Cody Wilson. The most dangerous man in the universe, or something like that. I don't really know. That's just what the media told me. He's a bad, bad, bad man. Or does he just want you to think that? Or does the FBI just want you to think that? I can't really keep track of it all. It's so confusing. Feints within feints. So I'll just say, he's a friend of mine. Though he did pick up an underage girl from a Sugar Daddy hookup site, and then fled the country. I suppose that would make him, in the end, kind of like the Roman Polański of Libertarianism. I'll leave it to you to judge for yourself whether he's a revolutionary, a terrorist, a rapist, a hero.

Naturally, Cody Wilson is also a producer of the sure to be endlessly controversial movie, "TFW no GF," so he's here to throw his hat into the ring, and returns from the shadows to promote the epic new film, and to tell all... well, we mostly talk about Baudrillard actually. But that's probably more interesting anyway. I always love talking to him, and we ended up with a great conversation on the corona pandemic, simulation, revolution, narrative, culture, teleonomy, the closure of the internet, crisis theory, normality, accelerationism, and hiding illegal CAD files for 3D printed guns in underground bunkers built on Minecraft servers.

My Other Publishing Deal is a Gold Plated, Jewel Encrusted Ford F-150: The Podcast Episode: The Attofictive Patreon Episode Description Pseudoliterary Adaptation

By Absolutely Nobody

The limousine, shooting like an void bolt across Manhattan, speeds to its stop, outside some five star hotel deep downtown, where impatiently awaiting it, the best selling alt-author is eager to board the ship that at long last finally come in for him. Having expressed intently their interest in his work, the big shot literary agents that brought him here have certainly spared no expense in making a good impression. Believe me, for those of you who've never had the pleasure, but there's no other way to feel, when you pop open the mini fridge equipping the private compartment of one of those black beauties, and see the treasure trove of canned frescas for yourself for the first time, except to finally know you've made it, baby. Welcome to the big time. You're a famous writer now.

Smartly, the publisher has stashed a few copies of the finished book atop the little TV next to the mini fridge. So here it is, the now great author admires, picking up one of the slim volumes and inspecting it. Already all the papers are hailing the arrival of his masterpiece, and the triumphant author, reveling in the glory of his great moment, mentally runs through all the ubiquitous names of the publications which have so far lauded his accomplishment. Who hasn't at least heard of this or that paper praising him, the author considers with the most delectable sense of self-satisfaction. The limousine, as it penetrates ever further into the champagne soaked night, unfurls behind it quickly evaporating crimson standards of fame, which but for a moment only, illuminate the deepening darkness, before forever burning out like the dead embers of some ancient warrior's funeral pyre -- suffocated into nothingness by the ruins of the overtaken city he, only hours previously, had died defending, as all the towering white walls of well masoned marble crash down atop his charred and indistinguishable remains.

Thinking nothing for tomorrow, the author, thumbs through the novella that finally brought him to the apex of his career, that he knows for certain, has undoubtedly earned him a venerated place in the future history of literature, and quickly paging over the copyright information and title page and the generous preface the publisher had arranged some supposedly very famous other author he had often enough heard of, but never actually gotten around to ever reading, the author comes at last to the opening lines of his own masterwork, and to pass the time, allows himself to relive a little the novel combination of words his genius had allowed him to assemble. A combination unique to him. Unique to this very soon to be best-selling book of his. A combination all the supposedly brilliant minds of literary history before him had failed to make. Despite no doubt a great deal of trying. And indulging fully for a moment in this last bit of half-ironic self-aggrandizing, he allows a single word to force its way through the anxious tangle of his uncertain impressions and half formed thoughts about the promise of the night to come...

Amateurs

Chapter 1
Ever since you can remember, you dreamed of being a writer. Not just a writer, but an author. A wordsmith. A literary visionary. You stroll the isles of some Barnes and Noble somewhere. The embossed covers, shrink wrapped with a pallid sheen, tile the short row of shelves comprising each topical section. The faces of the famous peer at you as you slowly pace the corridors of the childish maze retailers have assembled for you. Tan France from Queer Eye seems to sparkle with pride and joy on the cover of a ghostwritten memoir. Someday, you think, you'll be a great writer like him, and your face likewise will brim with the sense of accomplishment you imagine one must feel over writing something great, something worth selling, something worth buying, something that someone like you will see on the shelf at a Barnes and Noble somewhere.
It's dark out. It must be nighttime now. Was it before? You can't remember. Across the room your childhood bookshelf seems to grow larger and larger the more attently you contemplate it, and for a moment, as your eyes filter across the small library of titles, the melancholy dread you sometimes feel, in moments such as these, seems to be held briefly at bay. These are your books. It's easy enough, for a moment, to stave off the sadness you so often feel, to convince yourself for a few fleeting seconds that you really have read them all. That you know every page. And when your conscience peeps through, and reminds you of the truth, you find it equally easy to forget the whole thing ever happened at all, as you quickly reach for whatever distraction happens to be closest at hand.
Time may or may not be passing now, as you load websites on your phone's internet browser, close them, load other sites, close those, and then load again the one you started with. Your finger compulsively, again and again brings up different writing forums, which you quickly and apathetically scan over and over again searching for something new. Wouldn't it be great, to write something, to have it discussed somewhere online, by those capable of appreciating your special talents? This you feel profoundly.
You know a genius or two, others out there, in cyberland who've written things, and made their mark. You have one of their books. You don't really know whether you enjoyed it. Maybe, maybe not. Do you enjoy anything? You have to, don't you? You must. Though you feel unable to connect any experience you've ever had with a feeling you can call for certain enjoyment. No one is around. The chatrooms you frequent stand silent, and you sense in yourself the building need to speak to someone, brimming up from out of the shadows of the deep well God must have driven, like a railroad spike of negative nothingness, down into the center of your soul with his celestial sledge.
Back and forth your mind paces, edging towards capitulation, before you finally relent and open up the window to send a private message to one of the writers you and all your friends most love to praise. He responded to something you said once. He could be your friend. Maybe he might even recognize in you all that potential you insist to your innermost doubting self you truly have. Then, with his mentorship, you can begin in earnest, doing all the things you're sure you want to, but no one has ever so far given you permission to pursue. After waiting so long already, who can hold it against you, that you grow a bit impatient at the prospect of further delay. He only needs to answer, and your long lingering in the interminable stasis of creative purgatory will all at once be brought to a swift end, and in imagining the possibility, you feel yourself launched on mighty pinions into the far flung heaven of fame and fortune.
He'll answer you tomorrow, this time he has to.

Feeling the slight weight of an invisible wreath of laurels crowning his head, as he subvocalizes these final words, the limousine lurches to the curbside, to destiny, to the beginning of the future of literature. Infinite prospects open up like trumpeting angels at the swirling cloud gate of the highest heaven. Peels of thundering brass blasts sound above, as the godly alt-lit darling bathes himself in the waves of applause that pound him like the roiling surf of a crystal clear sea he dives headlong into on some exotic getaway.

Btw a lot of marketers (most?) consider books too unprofitable to bother with for serious effort. Books are used as lead-gen to sell speaking tours, subscription stuff, branded merch and so on. Hard to sell the book and then hard to get people to consume the product. Most everyone is moving to either big-ticket sales or subscription stuff -- mass sales is harder to do and more of a headache. Maybe best bet is to seduce a wealthy patron-ess of the arts?

I have been reading Delicious Tacos since the beginning, checking his blog, worried every lapse in posting that he ODed, drunk drove into a ditch or just threw in the towel. In the afterbirth of his new books I have been bearing witness to his great becoming like a slug in the sun, and tremble before his gripping prose as it captures the modern person’s destitution in the face of our consumer society that won’t even throw us a measly pity fuck. It really is a marvelous and rare thing to read a book or listen to a podcast someone created out of passion and not because they saw a market, wanted to pander to an audience, or thought it was their turn to be a famous author. It has been awesome to see not only DT's but Kantbot's glow up.

Episode 6: Casey Kasem's Vaporwave Catholic Accelerationism Countdown (w/ Akira and the Rapturous Sounds of the Lovecrypt Hit Machine) 2020-04-26T03:30:51+00:00close

INT. THE MATRIX - NEITHER DAY NOR NIGHT

CASEY KASEM stands before an ostentatious curtain, so deeply black as to appear an ethereally regal purple, so voluptuously fine it was as if it were made of nothingness itself.

Hi, I'm Casey Kasem, and welcome to the Simulation We All Believe to be Reality's Top 40. I'm your host, Casey Kasem. You know, the other day, I got to thinking, what if an omniscient artificial intelligence from the future is currently holding the real Casey Kasem hostage by using me, Casey Kasem, or at least, a simulation of Casey Kasem, as leverage. What if the real Casey Kasem has no way of knowing whether or not he's actually Casey Kasem? What if Casey Kasem was forced to reasonably conclude that he may not be Casey Kasem at all? But, in fact, was me, Casey Kasem, that is, a simulation of Casey Kasem. If that were the case, then Casey Kasem would be forced to conform to the malevolent will of this hypothetical Artificial Intelligence, lest it extract a penance of flesh from me, Casey Kasem, who, afterall, could very well be him, Casey Kasem.
Speaking of Casey Kasem, one of the Casey Kasems in a simulation somewhere out there, received this letter, from a listener named Akira. I'd like to share it with you. He says:
"Dear Casey, your materialist meme ideology is rotting your brain, please find God and put on some Nishiki Prestige."
Isn't that nice. Well, let's find God together then, shall we? Stay tuned, because after a quick commercial break we're going to be counting down all the greatest Lovecrypt hits.

INT. MY APARTMENT - EARLY MORNING

KANTBOT sits at his desk, typing at his laptop, as the sun slowly climbs the facade of the adjacent building seen through his window. He chuckles as he writes the above segment about CASEY KASEM, and wonders at his own cleverness. But soon thereafter, realizes that he's once again been done in by that very same cleverness of his, as only now does it occur to him the description section for EPISODE 6 of his incredible PSEUDODOXOLOGY NETWORK OFFICIAL PSEUDCAST, interviewing LOVECRYPT cofounder AKIRA, is both not descriptive enough, and also unnecessarily long, weird, and probably off putting. He strikes the return key and continues typing:

This VERY SPECIAL PSEUDCAST NETWORK EPISODE delves into the history and philosophy of Lovecrypt Records, and it's current manager Akira, who cofounded the project with Nishiki Prestige in 2017. Akira discusses the history of the label, counts down some of his favorite tracks, and gives an intimate account of his movement from Accelerationist meme ideology to Catholicism. A recent rundown can be found at California's KCPR's website: Lovecrypt: Soundtrack for the Rapture. Lovecrypt is kind enough to provide all of the sweet copyright cleared music for this show, so the least you can do is follow along with the list of music featured in this episode below and download (and maybe even pay a buck) for any albums you like the sound of:
Spirits by Cor Serpentis, from Atria (Intro Song)
hallucinatory resemblance by INVISIBLE ROBOT HANDS, from GRANITEFALSE
Faithless Predator by Smoke Access, from Greenhouse I
Lights out of Time by Smoke Access, from Greenhouse II
Zoetopia II by Bagaski, from Isle of None
Closeness To by Khan and Polo, from Revelations I
Midnight Run by I Sekuin, from I Sekuin
Lifetime of Grey Skies by Nishiki Prestige, from XOXO (Outro Song)

Why no Neet-Chee question when it comes to loss of values -- rationality without divine -- and so on? He give prophecy and solution possiblity. As for convert everyone -- how can you make someone leap if they do not leap? And what is so wrong with today? I'm out of touch -- out of time. Pain is fun but...The bright side. And the label thing happens in small Biz too, one person sets up as node -- get one client (or supplier, or whatever) and other people see and want to join (better to have active outreach, but sometimes high visibility is enough). Anyone can be this node, this podcast is example too. Fails often, but can be repeated until success, so pain of failure is only barrier to enter. If you have dream -- go for it! (And if you die while repeating, will not feel so bad probably -- since you are doing stuff :) Lastly: Akira is good example that you don't have to be a producer -- you can be a connector and give tremendous value to all the world. A lot of producers of stuff are bad at connecting, and producers and connectors work well together. I hope you guys all keep building friendships and businesses and projects together!

User #15076785 - 24 Apr 20 21:23
Very interesting so far—and I enjoyed the point about maximalism. Far from being an expert on these things, I tend to look to Karl Polanyi (author of 'The Great Transformation') for forecasts in regard to moments of crisis. Such times usually call for a "countermovement" wherein a diverse array of interests navigate between entrenched (1) oligarchy (as capital becomes increasingly tied up in land and other fictitious commodities apart from industry), or (2) a caricaturesque reassertion of a social principle lacking in the previous regime which see itself as internally coherent, yet, in its eternal paranoia, must always create an enemy to be extinguished to create a need for a war machine, (3) or a system of governance wherein growth is cast aside as a priority in favor of distribution. I don't see the third option possible without a strong central government (Polanyi's embrace of the state as a tool is refreshing from other leftists). Financialization will lead to the first option! My pessimism sees this development as increasingly likely, I'm afraid... In short, Polanyi's emphasis on the growing importance of fictitious commodities (FIRE sector) in decaying economies is useful, drawing class lines along those who hold assets and those who hold debt. Sorry for the screed. Thanks.

User #493961 - 24 Apr 20 23:59
Its completely un-fixable at this point. The financial system is firmly in the hands of incredibly immoral people. All you can do is try to live a good life and take care of the people around you. When it comes down to it we are all essentially various gradations of slaves to a handful of bankers.

the air force fly-bys happened today and they didn't drop any PPEs or red envelopes. really loved your work mr kantbot and nic was a great guest that clearly outlined the unelected power grab done by the central bank cohort. i think japanification as nic mentioned is going to be the ineluctable trajectory because our current govern body will not budge from the status quo. as i've joked before during occupy wall st with my banker friends in new york: when you guys feel the pinch of paying 3-4k a mo out of your 5k starter take home salary for just 1br in 3-4br at even midtown, you'll be occupying wall st conveniently on your way to work. but in the end, the irony is probably gonna be they would still agree to their own perverse serfdom this until they only have 500 bucks left to order seamless on their iphones. but don't worry probably at that point the ivies will only take legacy admissions and manhattan is probably just company town.

The Federal Reserve is a private corporation with the power to create money 'ex nihilo'. Its not defensible. Same thing as the Bank of England and the European Central Bank, and we don't even know the true shareholders of any of them. Crypto-currency is fine until these banks implement their own version of it, at which point it will just be a new way to further enslave us.

If you agree with marx that socialism is the inevitable logical conclusion to capitalism, then why would a return to real capitalism be favorable? Wouldnt we just slowly get back to this point of hyperfinancialization and corporatism?
user avatar
User #15076785 - 25 Apr 20 02:36
I think Marx exaggerated capitalism's break from feudal societies. In both types of society, the process of extracting surplus from the direct producers involve a complex mix of political, cultural, and economic practices. Following this, Marx sees contradictions within capitalism's development through analyzing its tendencies in isolation from these other forces. The way I see it, capitalism is built upon the lie that fictitious commodities are like any other commodity—the contradictions, therefore, exist from the Inclosure Acts in England. IMHO, there is no "going back"—the state is and has always been an instrument for protecting class interests. The economy *has always* been embedded within society. It functions best as a utility, not as our master. Unfortunately (though hardly surprising) those who hold money and power are better at organizing their own interests and determining what values the economy responds to (mobility, fluidity, &c.) Thus the paradox that the only thing that can save a true market society is centralized regulation, in my view. But what do I know! I'm no economist...

Episode 4: Alternate Universe Rush Limbaugh Hallucination (w/ Jack) 2020-04-24T01:49:54+00:00close

What if you could travel to parallel worlds? The same year, the same Earth, only different dimensions. A world where Rush Limbaugh is replaced by Kantbot and a really incredible soundboard loaded up with Sliders and K-Pax Samples. The Pseudodoxology Podcast Network has found the gateway. Now the problem is... finding a way back home.

Beloved Pseud Jack from TPN helps usher in the Patreon New Atlantis properly with an episode about his highly sophisticated taste as I hammer the same Sliders sample over and over again in the background for 100 or so minutes of top quality content. Late night madness. Scientific hallucination. Jupiter Ascending. This episode has it all.

(Some people were reporting issues with this episode not loading correctly into their RSS feeds. I've reuploaded it and deleted the previous post to hopefully correct the issue.)

(Intro Theme: "Spirits" by Cor Serpentis, from the album Atria. Outro Theme: "Lifetime of Grey Skies" by Nishiki Prestige, from the album XOXO. Interlude: "fair" by inner worlds, from the album 20¹¹-20¹³. All music courtesy of Lovecrypt. Episode mastered by Tryppocales Records)

great ep.. went to listen to perfume podcast about Dune after, really enjoyed that one. Frank Herbert was such a crazy freak, Kantbot has talked about how he introduced like sex cults or whatever into all his timelines of original Dune series. 1) Bene Gessereti, Paul-Era 2) Hot lesbo supersoldiers that has some mass orgasm ritual with the God Emperor, God Emp-era 3) Long after passing of god-emp humanity has scattered across the universe, cult of "twisted bene gessereti" returns to old empire and is primary antagonist in last books. Their special power is that they fuck you so good that you feel such immense pleasure that you have to obey them..

Worship series: A spaceship with AI has become god and has made some sort of sick scenario on an alien planet where an upper cast.. actually I give up explaining the plot of this book. But basically clones are property - and they run all kinds of sick experiments on them. ANYWAY the Frank Herbert moment is that some woman superclone has resonance with a giant gigabrain kelp that spans the entire world ocean.. she fucks it in the last book

It is so strange to listen to this podcast and have the very phenomenon that I experience listening to the podcast described by the host (Who experiences about a higher art forms). Like It would seem wrong that TPN would ever go on Redscare let alone be acknowledged by them because I see everyone like the characters in the Idiot. TPN listening to Redscare and seeing the cultural movement being like Myshkin staring at Ganya’s photo of Nastasya Flippovna and seeing the depth of her soul. TPN forced to perpetually chase the object of his desire which right as it is within grasp be pulled away by the chaotic energy that is the basis for the fascination. The only logical conclusion in my mind is if the Red Scare girls agree to go on TPN but bail at the last second to do a Joe Rogan interview for clout and end up embarrassing themselves to such a degree they delete all their online accounts. Driving TPN crazy to the point of retweeting his Clarissa victory lap over Chapo everyday. Like the prince waiting at the church only to not be surprised when Nastasya runs away to petersburg and subsequently be stabbed to death.

Pseudodoxia - 25 Apr 20 10:18
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. I say second-rate because glancing through his filmography he’s been responsible for more than his fair share of questionable films: 1492: The Conquest of Paradise, Robin Hood, Exodus. Movies like GI Jane and Black Hawk Down would make more sense in the filmography of Michael Bay. The bleary slow motion action of Gladiator feels like something out of a bad History Channel reenactment. And for all it’s sumptuous orientalism, one can’t help but wish Kingdom of Heaven would have used Tasso as a script rather than the generic and confused historical material Scott chose to serve up. The Alien prequel Prometheus though outdoes them all in terms of shallowness; a movie about creation that’s more interested in spinning a Chariots of The Gods inspired deep mythology to prop up the ailing franchise than it is in exploring the psycho-historical origins of Humanity, not just as a species, but also as an idea and ideal. As is the case for every Hollywood remake or re-imagining there was a simmering, and largely unwarranted, excitement at the prospect of Scott producing another (proper) Alien movie, as if the only problem with Prometheus was that, despite having plenty of alien horrors, they didn’t look enough like the one from the original for it to count. There have now, counting Prometheus, been six Alien films, and that’s not including spinoffs like Alien vs Predator. For such a beloved franchise it’s strange that, on the whole, the general quality level across the different episodes doesn’t average out all that well. Truth be told though, in Alien: Covenant all the pieces are in place. There’s the colony crew of somewhat schlubby civilians with half-unspoken personal problems. There’s the android run amok. There’s the cyclopean alien ruins looming ominously around the characters as they discover unspeakable cosmic nightmares. Eventually a woman with short hair and pointed nipples in a tank top runs around the ship and blows the alien out an airlock. Judged by the internal standards of the series, Covenant is adequate, and that’s more or less the agreement the critic’s consensus has come to. The elements are there, in more or less the correct proportions, and in today’s cultural environment that’s usually counted as a success, but as a whole, judged against the standards of Art rather than those set by the franchise, as a self-sufficient work it fails. It’s the latter standard of judging the latest mass produced form of entertainment that prevails among critics, both online and off. When it comes to every new super hero or Star Wars movie, the critical consensus goes about reproducing itself, spreading itself like the alien virus of Covenant, hijacking our cultural DNA until a thousand identical mutant clones spring forth and run roughshod over taste. In Prometheus man mounts an expedition, to discover the most antediluvian architects of the human race: the Engineers. What they discover, as one might expect, turns out to be quite upsetting. The forebearers of our species consider us a mistake, and plan to eradicate us using a mutagenic bioweapon. The film concludes with all but two members of the exploratory crew dead. The only survivors, the android David among them, set out in one of the Engineer’s ships to visit their homeworld and confront them about their designs for Humanity. This premise, which it took an entire film to set up, is concluded off screen prior to the opening of Covenant, and this new film finds a new crew accidentally stumbling on the aftermath of David’s encounter with the beings who created mankind millions of years ago. The center of Covenant’s attempt to pick up the questions Prometheus asked is to be found in the central segment of the movie, after the survivors of the crew recover from their initial brutalization at the ends of the alien virus which David used to genocide the Engineers. The details are ultimately unimportant. Still, it’s the all-too brief scenes with David in the Necropolis that are not only the most unnerving, but which also do most of the conceptual legwork for the film. It’s David, we learn, who has created the alien species which has disemboweled so many throughout the series. He’s been experimenting, creating new forms of life using the Engineer’s technology. At last, he tells us, he believes he has finally perfected life. This, for some, may come across as confusing. In what sense could the monstrous forms he’s concocted ever be considered “perfect”? From a certain perspective, he may have succeeded. The creature is virulent, infecting all forms of life it comes into contact with, using them to reproduce itself. As it matures it becomes all but unstoppable. It can survive in otherwise uninhabitable conditions, even in deep space seemingly. Attempts to kill it cause it to spray acid blood strong enough to melt through the hull of a spaceship. Etc. From a perspective of pure biological utilitarianism, David has created a life form if not perfect, than at least not far off. What’s most disturbing, perhaps, about all this, is that David has adopted such a perspective in the first place. It’s a principle against which Humanity appears poorly, a standard we are poorly suited to measure up to. It’s not necessarily the disgust his creations inspire that induces us to fill ill at ease at him, but what they say about the role of Human-ness in the universe, at least in David’s eyes. The morality of civilization is reduced to a necropolis overrun by nightmares made in our own twisted image, a species devoid of Humanity, but one that’s capable of conquering all life in the Universe through its virulence and revolting adaptability. Covenant opens with a brief introduction of the themes in intends to explore, that it more or less never gets around to doing so with its undivided attention is beside the point. A newly created David, prior to the events of Prometheus, is meeting his creator for the first time. A painting hangs on the wall. A piano sits to one side. The David of Michelangelo runs like a column through the ceiling, as if to hold up the whole scene. David (the android, not the statue) carries on a brief conversation with his maker regarding his own intended perfection. What perfection though? For both David and his creator it seems that perfection consists in immortality, which is the one characteristic the two will never share. In Prometheus this idea was reduced to a somewhat contrived quest by David’s geriatric inventor to learn the secrets of immortality from the Engineers. His quest fails, and the Engineer rips of David’s head and uses it to beat him to death. Why are the engineer’s trying to destroy us? Neither film ever gets around to answering that, but we might plausibly infer that it’s because they look on our own creations, on David, the way we look at the monster’s which David later creates in Covenant. It’s not necessarily the form our creation has assumed which the Engineer’s hold against us, but maybe the perspective which we have assumed from which such creations appear “perfect” to us in the first place. This is, of course, speculation, and in Alien: Covenant, these themes only serve as detours to Scott’s primary mission of connecting point A to point B to point C in the Alien cinematic universe. As David sits surrounded by perfect creations of man, the high points of the Arts & Sciences, as traditionally conceived, he is enshrined by the Museum setting as a work of Art. Whereas artworks typically only comprehend themselves however, David, in his perfection, comprehends more fundamentally the ability of Man to create such things generally, and through this comprehension, he compounds within himself all these works, everything that this creative drive can produce. The value of these works, as David is instructed by his designer, is their enduring quality, their immortality, and that is why David, too, is ‘perfect’; he is a man raised to the status of an artistic object, but only in the sense that he’s an object which will can persist beyond the lifespans of ordinary men. David, in Covenant, eventually confesses to his counterpart, an identical, but intellectually sterile and begin android named Walter, that he has developed a great antipathy towards Humanity. They are a dying race, David pronounces with conviction. They don’t deserve to spread themselves through the universe. They are unworthy. The form of life David has created is more deserving of the cosmic real estate Man would end up inhabiting. There is no further elaboration, as to why Man is unworthy. We can speculate though: Man uses his creative ability to perpetuate his own biological weakness in service of an enduring, if ephemeral and elusive spark of Humanity. David uses his creative ability to perpetuate biological strength in service of an ideal of virulence, adaptation and linear extensiveness. Man’s ‘failure,’ in his eyes, consists in his human perspective, his sense that ideal principles in operation within the soul possess an independent validity and value beyond their ability to reproduce, survive, and adapt. As David is immortal, there is no need for Man to perpetuate his Humanity. Humanity has been raised to the level of a machine-object, which, finally being freed from any need to reproduce itself, may now go about perfecting the reproduction of life itself. The civilization of the Engineers is ancient, their city, which none of the crew have even the slightest curiosity or interest in, stretches out like the ruins of some non-euclidean Atlantis, a cosmic Pergamon millions of years older than Mankind’s earliest tribal settlement. As David’s creations frighten Daniels and the rest of the colony crew, the Engineers are frightened, and in the end done in by David, as we will in turn be done in by David’s perfect lifeforms. Here then a reductive algorithm is running its course. In the beginning, with the Engineers, we have a personification of spirit in its earliest stages. Through man, and David, and the aliens he creates, we see the degradation of that essence. We see it being bred out of life, and personified in a machine who, unleashed from the physio-organic constraints conditioning the development of its own powers, creates a form of life unleashed from the constraints of higher puroposiveness, reducing life down to a vicious biological mechanism of virulent infestation and linear multiplication. This is a discussion which is largely absent from Alien: Covenant. One merely suggested in a brief prologue, a few conversations with David and some deleted scenes. It is here where we meet with the real problem regarding not only this film, but the overall outlook which prevails in Hollywood and among critics of all stripes as well. The standard that David applies is the standard of Ridley Scott, and by extension, Hollywood. It is a standard by which films like Alien: Covenant are judged: against their virulence as strains of their respective franchises. Here, the outward appearances of the artwork are taken as the rule of survival. What are the elements of the series, of the original movie that established it, and what is the correct proportion to mix them in to ensure maximum virulence in the current box office environment. There are two stances we can assume when approaching Alien: Covenant (or any other blockbuster franchise film): Firstly, the perspective where they’re judged as additional reproductions of an original object manufacturing itself in order to persist and infect as much of culture as possible. Secondly, the perspective of a more fundamental standard of Art, not as something possessing the quality of endurance, but something that endures in relation to its realization of an idea of Human-ness which exists only through its own effort to comprehend some aspect of that idea. Most current among critics, especially of the internet variety, adopt the first stance, where the quality valued above all others is the most potent reproduction of the outward elements of plot and design associated with some ‘classic’ movie they were raised on. By this measure Alien: Covenant does well enough for itself. It’s a sufficiently graphic remix of the familiar elements of the long-winded series to meet with fan approval. The film is only marred by a few strange moments in the middle where David explains his ideas of Creation to the crew. From the other perspective, however, the film is such a half-hearted exploration of what it purports to be interested in discussing that it’s deserving of minimal praise. Two competing perspectives were at work in Alien: Covenant, and the one that won out was David’s, of the Alien series as precisely the kind of linearly multiplying infectious phenomenon which serves as his ideal. This may make for decent enough entertainment, but as a perspective which forms the basis for how our overarching cultural enterprises conceive of themselves, there’s something deeply unsettling about it and the creatures it engineers. Why bother criticizing it? Why waste time on inferior productions? Because criticism is only productive when it assumes the other perspective, when it doesn’t reduce the value of culture to its infectiousness, but judges according to a more fundamentally human perspective, where reproduction of the material conditions of civilization is seen as secondary to the development of Humanity as an idea across a never-ending dialog of activity through which it is not reproduced, but developed. As adequate as Alien: Covenant is, as art, it falls short. It is not necessarily the form the monster takes which terrifies, but the perspective from which its creator judges its hideous perfection.

Episode 3: Egression (w/ Xenogothic) 2020-04-18T22:08:14+00:00close

Scrambling through the nondescript halls of Goldsmiths, University of London, Matt Colquhoun outruns the Agents of Hyper-Capitalism, or something. Is he jacking into the Matrix? Or out of it? Who can even say anymore. Abandoning his slave name to become Xenogothic, he joins me to hack into the mainframe of the simulation, to upload the pirate code that will emancipate humanity. Or whatever. To be honest I don't know how computer stuff really works. Anyways, I'm very happy for Xenogothic to join us to discuss his excellent new book, Egress: On Mourning, Melancholy and Mark Fisher. I think its about how to configure your modem, at least I hope it is, because I have no idea if this is making it into your computer screens or not. In any event, its a can't miss episode to be sure.

Also check out his cool looking blog too: https://xenogothic.com/

Big time Pseuds, Logo and Nightmare Vision, join me in reforming the secret alchemical brotherhood of imaginary doctors sometimes known as the Rosicrucian Order. Together we unlock the long hidden secrets John Dee's encrypted grimoires to finally reveal the secret truth of Qanon. That's right, as predicted long ago, Christian Rosenkreuz has returned. Unfounded speculation and unproductive theorizing abound. This is a must listen episode, if you don't want to learn anything at all, which, if you're really smart, I know you definitely don't!

Good criticism of Moldbug/Yarvin here. Like a lot of people I read, good on insight and revelation and but less on prescriptions for paths forward.
user avatar
User #23269207 - 20 Apr 20 18:31
Big agree with this and the critiques levied in this thread. Personally, I agree with the basics of Yarvin's argument about all the implicit control that goes on in our society, as well as the inefficiencies of the explicit , democratic government. What I never understood (and don't really think he addressed in the episode) is how having an explicit dictator, or "CEO of America" would actually make that explicit force more accountable. Sure, we'd be able to point at them and say "all of this is because of Bill Gates!" but given our culture's lethargic nature towards protest/mass demonstrations, it doesn't follow that we'd actually gain any more ability to control their actions than we already do. Less so if this CEO wouldn't be elected. The accountability argument makes much less sense to me than the efficiency argument.

To defend moldbug a little here, as I remember under neocameralism all government employees would be retired with pay and unable to work for the new gov. Also, all political power would be formalized and turned into stock in USG. Shareholders would elect a board which would choose a CEO of the country.

Sounds like Yarvin honestly believes coronavirus is real. Some tricks are actually more effective on people with high IQs. The key to all tricks is misdirection and high IQ people have a tendency to intellectually misidirect themselves because once they believe a lie they can go so in-depth in imagining the details of the lie.

Audio really is the best substrate for Moldbug. It's obvious that he prefers everything be clever, waste-less, and polished but there is no audience like a podcast audience. Just as a reader must build stamina, so too must a listener. But unlike the reader, the listener doesn't stop listening just because the content ends. In a sense the podcast listener has mastered "the art of being ruled." Kantbot, don't ever feel like you have to cut it short for our sakes. Make hay while the sun shines.

RE: American culture in tech - SAS out of North Carolina, one of the biggest, oldest family run software companies. Privately owned. Interesting culture there.

Fantastic first ep. Hopefully you can get an economics discussion with him sometime (e.g. mainstream v mmt v Austrian v mercantilism). Great to have the heavy hitters like yarvin on during these world historical times.

Is America the worst on corona? What if just like asian countries, three years from now we actually do respond to future pandemics as well as Asia does, we would still have the same fundamental problem as before. And as well if the bill gates fixation was really motivated by the psychology mentioned here, would they resist say renting out the function directly taiwan and taiwan was tracking your phone? I imagine a huge portion of the people who fixate on gates would be fine with that. And a lot of the internet weirdos who were good on corona were a community that was created by fertility, and that seems like the most fundamental thing we need and what would make us respond better and it was not spawned by the format of the executive but barbarian internet tribes. And like Kantbot probably alludes to its in our hearts and minds and culture. And you can not create new fertility via format alone.

Brilliant talk. I agree with 4thbox... The one issue with Tekwars was it was too short, so if you've got the stamina i'd go full Joe Rogan or even beyond. Allan Watts & Terrance McKenna used to hold 3 day lectures so we can see a return to something like this.

Thanks Lev, Patreon has limited file size, so I think 2h40m is the max I can do. But I could certainly talk to Curtis for hours

Everyone being a 9 year old is an assett, a joy -- what price is not worth paying for this principle? To be safe, pragmatic, effective...These words bring no joy to the reader. All they bring is a relief from fear, but what vision? What use is a road without pointless drives? Maybe I am too slow! Or too heartless! Maybe I am too *without* the age and wisdom of others and their sympathy. Still, I am what I am. Am I good? Stimulant user vs. Opiate user maybe. But is that crude? I apologize for this comment. I will go to the toilet now. What I do there, I will not mention. I find it impossible to be 10. 11 is infinite to me. (If you look from above, all looks different -- some cannot fall -- they are too clever, too wise, too good) [That was rude, but it might be true!] {Perhaps the problem is that everyone thinks they are 75 rather than 9, so scared so scared so scared of banal things rather than fantastic things.} *Why would anyone with pride submit to some ugly thing with ugly reasons for submission -- ugly reasons such as the mechanical preservation of life? Will you see paintings of hospitals, or paintings of battles? The King must provide some reasonable beauty to warrant submission. Stubborn-ness is not borne of reason or lack of reason. It is inherent in certain people. Oh, and how ugly the snitches! Who point with cackling finger to say: Put them away, put them away, stupid, stupid, stupid! And yet, I suppose snitching is inherent in certain people too. All things have their humour in the story. After all, it is funny to laugh at ugliness! Ok, now I go. Thank you for the podcast, it is enjoyable :) P.S. Mechanical is important part of puzzle. It is very difficult to empathize when one has no connection. Is this un-connected one really "redeemable" to the empathy of the one who is intimately connected with death via the virus? How can he care? Is it really his short-coming? Perhaps the empathetic one has the short-coming -- if we are being pragmatic. After all, to what end is your pragmatism aimed to? And you cannot easily escape pragmatism, when you are lambasting others for not being pragmatic. Maybe I am slow. I misunderstand. But maybe, this is right. And then what are you doing? Are you 9? Are you gonna cry and then lambast others for being 9? Are you so crushed? By what? Oh you feel! But the child, I think, feels more. Feels more wildly, more free. It is *barbaric*. It is Barbarism. And say the word and you will feel quite 9. It is a savage word. Once again, I confess: I am avoiding the toilet for so long now that I fear I have done horrible damage to myself. So now, I go.

Glad you got him to state what his solutions would be a little more clearly. Couldn't disagree with him more.
