Re: Explain cyberpunk to pirx so he can sell it to old peopl

So Jay Leno's terrible acting and existence on this earth aside, Blade Runner was ... a land of contrasts. There were some very lovely images. Villeneuve's films have always been very visually pleasing, Deakins has always been world-class behind the camera, and even Ridley Scott, for all his many de...

Re: Techdad Discussion

Just watched and i have a bunch of thoughts that i will hopefully remember to post tomorrow. But in the meantime. Jared Leno has to be the worst actor to still get into big movies of all time. He's dog shit. Any decent character actor could've made something really memorable out of that role and ins...

Re: Explain cyberpunk to pirx so he can sell it to old peopl

i want it to be a proper film, not just meditation on identity/transmission etc. judith butler/derrida stuff is my 'natural' (lol) context, like i said i know very little about sci fi, what i want is people who can help frame this within the medium/genre. essentially i want people who can tell me s...

Re: Toilet Water

I have been playing around with the le labo samples for a while. I don't really have any sort of nose for scents yet, I just like smelling good (smiling) . My favorites are I think the rose and the santal. I think it might be interesting to try something like a rose oud. I'm interested in scents tha...

Re: sit and listen

I've made several appearances on Revolutionary Left Radio . It's great, although I oppose the host's recent tendency to bring on the wackiest, most irresponsible people, like the loathsome Dr. Bones, whom I have exchanged polemics with and now plan to hold a debate on the podcast with. Also in the w...

Re: What are you reading today/book club

Oh, I also finished Bechdel's second graphic memoir, Are You My Mother? recently. It was extremely textual and metatextual for a graphic novel, in addition to having a very meta narrative. A ton of panels were just pages of psychoanalysis books with bits highlighted. It heavily quoted Donald Winnico...

Re: What are you reading today/book club

I'm reading the Bolaño short story collection Last Evenings on Earth. It's good and I like some of the things he does in terms of style but I don't really like how it's all mostly about other writers and artist types. Is all his shit like this?

Re: Explain cyberpunk to pirx so he can sell it to old peopl

I liked the way technological interfaces were portrayed in the show Sherlock, but now that every aspect of the show irritates the shit out me I can't tell if it's good or bad anymore. (Anyway, Sherlock Holmes is probably a prototypical cyberpunk hero in general)

I must not be much of a "cyberpunker" because i've only read the gibson, the GITS film, and although i've heard of DE:HE, I've only actually played the original Deus Ex, which tbf was an extremely good game. I might actually copy this reading list for my own general cyberpunk education pur...

I think one of the main differences and drawbacks of video games as a work of art is their emergence under late capitalism and particularly the computer age. The economic and ideological relations of video games are all fundamentally different than those of the novels, which essentially predate capi...

how can someone identify as a different gender? what does that mean to identify as a different gender it doesn't make sense.
