Portrait of the Useless Person as an Aging Hipster

24 05 11 - 11:57

Postmodern theory: there exists a public social consensual reality, formed of the desires and judgments of the human ego, which contrasts a world of physical and possibly mystical reality which can only be experienced through introspection.

Public social consensual reality


Lupe Núñez-Fernández’s paintings look effortless, as if the inky brushstrokes rendering pensive humans, curious animals and bleeding landscapes were applied in just a few deft wrist-flicks. But her relationship with art is hardly casual: in addition to technical training, Núñez-Fernández holds a PhD in modern art history, and over the last few years, she has spent time writing about, researching and curating contemporary art for a variety of publications and galleries.

[...]

The video was animated by artist Xana Kudrjavcev-DeMilner, with whom Núñez-Fernández attended undergrad and collaborated in the past on video-art installations. Kudrjavcev-DeMilner collected found materials for the video, then scissored them into a kind of visual stream-of-consciousness that plays on the song’s shimmering instrumentation and Núñez-Fernández’s shy, dreamy vocals. - Design Parasite


Introspective yet External Reality



Tell Me What To Think

My cruel and unusual take on it: these dream vocals are completely directionless variations on a hackneyed and simple theme, played over bog-standard minor key indie rock. The only reason people like this crap is the quality production, entertaining videos and "high concept" band. It's "art" for proles who, unable to make anything profound or even of profound quality, want to hoodwink all of us into liking their hipster crap because they're equal and their point of view just must be valid, too!

Further Cruelty

When I say that modern idiots write in the "NPR style," I'm referring to a certain type of writing that is popular on the National Public Radio in the United States. It features overuse of adjectiveness and a superlative, over-descriptive style paired with an artificial sparseness. Total fucking idiots think this style is "good writing," and in fact most critics of ANUS bitch because we don't write in this pandering, faux intellectual, self-impressed and masturbatory way. Maybe they're just too busy reading all this deft flicking with its dreamy space-out dramatic and self-important agenda. We truly live in the age of salespeople.

The Ideal NWO Man

Adrogynous whiny teenbeat cheeseball Justin Bieber is the perfect archetype of what the NWO's commerce division wants in its people: he's dating someone of a different race, has an incoherent tattoo of "great profundity" in a language he does not understand, and is busy wasting time being vapid and encouraging others to do the same.



Can you imagine a more perfect consumer? Or a less useful person if any natural or political disaster interrupts the grocery stores? Which is less useful, a 400 lb ghettobird or a 92 lb catamite?

One person's vapid is another's profound. This is why the prevailing consensus calls for democracy.

Imposing standards on everyone subverts civil liberties. How much history do you know? This is 2011 and it is our progressive way, like it or not. Dave - 24-05-’11 12:37

lol get with the times, this is the era for brave progressions such as energy drinks, faltering testosterone levels, ruined digestive tracts, market flooding, public consensus over expertise, and piss-diluted public indoor pools. and if you don't like it, too bad cause we're moving forward without parasites like you.

Reading literacy and basic nutrition are at an all time high in history. More people have a say in our societies. Information and travel times are much faster and more abundant. We call that progress.

Yes, and people with alternative lifestyles can read, have access to nutrition, can travel freely. Get used to all kinds of people like it or not. We call that tolerance. Dave - 24-05-’11 14:40

"Reading literacy and basic nutrition are at an all time high in history. More people have a say in our societies. Information and travel times are much faster and more abundant. We call that progress." Dave, Dave, Dave...ever been to a public school in America? People still can't read here. Basic nutrition? Why are their so many fat asses walking around? Probably the abundant travel you speak so highly of. Yeah more people have a say but what do we agree on? Nothing. Fighting wars over oil in order to provide this abundant and speedy travel...that's not progress, it's slow suicide. And who exactly is "we"? Get used to all kinds of people telling you to fuck off. WE call THAT progress. Graveland - 24-05-’11 15:15

Dave needs something to do
"Imposing standards on everyone subverts civil liberties." Imposing civil liberties ( which are the government's choice, how reassuring )subverts standards. Dave needs something to do - 24-05-’11 16:46
Dave
"People still can’t read here."

That is from a lack of sufficient funding as you well know. I think you are exaggerating anyway.

"Yeah more people have a say but what do we agree on? Nothing."

Our democracy decides what we agree on. Your own opinion may not be the majority one but that does not mean consensus is lacking.

"Imposing civil liberties"

What a ridiculous statement. Nobody goes around forcing civil liberties on society. The idea is just absurd. Dave - 24-05-’11 17:09

"That is from a lack of sufficient funding as you well know. I think you are exaggerating anyway."...I went to public school and saw what the problem was first hand. Throwing money into the system does not make a brain dead gangsta wanna-be want to learn...you also make it a point to criticize this site for giving opinion as fact, yet respond with things like "I think you are exaggerating anyway."..."Your own opinion may not be the majority one but that does not mean consensus is lacking."... Consensus was lacking on the war in Iraq, but we went anyway. the motives for our Government's decision had little to do with what it's citizens wanted... "Nobody goes around forcing civil liberties on society. The idea is just absurd."...Affirmative Action. The government says who to hire, irregardless of qualifications. Politicians operate on the principal of keeping their jobs by pandering to mentally conditioned voters...Democracy is a system where people of differing opinions can vote for a candidate that allegedly agrees with them. the opposition disagrees. Get it. lack of consensus is what keeps democracy going. If everyone agreed and did what was better in the long term then democracy would be rendered obsolete very quickly.

wing on over to england and jam with the stones
"basic nutrition" Define this for me please, Dave. There are more remedies and nepenthes now than a century ago, but are our lifestyles healthier? Our diets are clearly not what they used to be (and here I'm referring to quality, not quantity; portions in America are larger than usual from what I've heard but the food is often mystery meat Frankenstein dung, which I suppose might be multivitamins are so popular now.) By living more indoors we are conceivably less susceptible to disease, but this lifestyle is making us weaker. http://www.care2.com/causes/health-policy/blog/are-our-children-getting-weaker/ Granted this weaker human might be the ideal footsoldier for technocratic capitalist democracy, but that wont mean shit when a natural disaster ravages one of our utopias and everyone is too self-absorbed to organize and take action in the face of nature's wrath (Katrina) wing on over to england and jam with the stones - 24-05-’11 18:57

This is just a stereotypical slur. It also does not apply TO EVERY SINGLE student so generalizatoins always fail.

I'm hesitant to even put this in quotes because it implies value loaded biases on your part.

"Throwing money into the system does not make a brain dead gangsta wanna-be want to learn"

"Consensus was lacking on the war in Iraq, but we went anyway."

The general consensus is that all people deserve basic rights. Everyone accepts a democratic Iraq now anyways so it is therfore legitimate. That is people power in action by the way. Dave - 24-05-’11 19:05
Graveland
"The general consensus is that all people deserve basic rights."...General consensus among who? Does democracy favor a military occupation of nation that just so happens to be one of the world's largest oil producers? Would you favor such a thing in your homeland if the general consensus in the invading nation was that you had something that they wanted? We haven't intervened in Sudan (living situation much worse than Iraq). What about Libya? Your precious democracy is willing to kill to keep it's short-sighted "progress" going..."This is just a stereotypical slur. It also does not apply TO EVERY SINGLE student so generalizatoins always fail."...No, it does not apply to all, including me. But it does apply to your precious majority that exists in big city American public schools..."I’m hesitant to even put this in quotes because it implies value loaded biases on your part."...I am not hesitant to say it because I was there and you were not. There is no debate on this. I am biased, but to what I see and have always seen every day-which contradicts the things you vomit on this comment board. There is a difference between what a person witnesses and what they are told by the media/government and their parakeet-like sycophants..."That is people power in action by the way."...No, it is not. "People power" would have been if the Iraqis killed the motherfucker themselves. Instead they go to Europe and try to recreate what they ran away from to begin with (and a welfare check).

"Everyone accepts a democratic Iraq now anyways so it is therfore legitimate."...Wrong. Muslim zealots don't accept it. Neither do I. The Middle East should fix it's own problems, instead of having the Great Satan do it for them...By the way, Dave, you still haven't explained why you attack others for offering opinions as facts but then do so yourself...and yes, the post was right about Bieber, but I suppose you will defend him as being an "individual" instead of a product. Your tolerant, loving, all-inclusive bunny rabbit views keep you from realizing that more people like this is where this society is going. It's just my opinion, but that isn't a comforting thought.

Face it, the racism and fascism side has failed to get the numbers behind the vote anyway.

Besides, voting in this nationalism hatred would not last anyway because the other free world powers would have a coalition waiting to root it out of our midst. Dave - 25-05-’11 18:25

What the fuck?..."Face it, the racism and fascism side has failed to get the numbers behind the vote anyway."...scream RACISM! and claim that the herd supports you - good retort. Way to prove me wrong you walking punchline. That is precisely the kind of tactics that your democracy uses against people with a mind. If anything, Dave, you serve to reinforce what this site is saying. Graveland - 25-05-’11 18:51

"Information and travel times are much faster and more abundant. We call that progress."

OH WOW! FUCKING GREAT! WE CAN SPEND INORDINATE AMOUNTS OF TIME DOING USELESS AND POINTLESS THINGS EVEN FASTER THAN BEFORE!

Faster life = more action before you die. Key word here: die. The important things which people do with their lives are done in the same ways as they have always been done, at the same basic speeds and rates, and without this bullshit technology which serves to stress the crap out of average people due to the imbecilic requirements made of them by the sheer speed of the "working world".

Dave
So now we come right back to the topic of the blog entry. There doesn't need to be a point whatever that is supposed to mean.

Do you really want someone else to decide?

Just give thanks to democratic people power because this is where the means for everyone to have their say begins and ends. On second thought, that is the whole point here isn't it? Dave - 26-05-’11 17:18
RE:Dave
If everyone is equal and everyone is exactly the same. Then:

(1) Why is there racism if there is no race?
(2) Why can't people with IQs < 100 win Nobel Prizes or achieve anything extraordinary, outside of the bounds of athletics and pop culture?
(3) If we say genetics says we are all the same just because each person's biochemisty is nearly 100% equal, then do we say humans are equal to bananas since we share 99.9..% of our genes with it?
(4) If everything must be decided democratically, then can we democratically chose no democracy?
(5) If we everyone's ideas are exactly the same, and there is no difference in beliefs then why can't fundamentalist Christians and Muslims agree? Why should we tell a kid there is no Santa Claus since we can all just agree to disagree and let anyone believe whatever?
(6) Why has half a century of preaching love, peace, etc. not solved poverty, ended hunger, stopped conflicts, etc. it seems it has no solved anything but has the population grows situations such as racial tension, poverty, hunger, etc. only gets worst?

Just think about it Dave. RE:Dave - 26-05-’11 18:58
RE:Dave pt 2
Additionally Dave, why are only non-whites allowed to have a cultural identity and have racial pride? And if races are all equal, then why did Asians adapt so well in America while blacks still can't seem to break out of their sordid state? Both faced adversity and racism, Asians were used pretty much like slaves in building railroads as well. RE:Dave pt 2 - 26-05-’11 19:01

It doesn't matter if Dave is one person or many. He's a school of thought. Only a "fucking idiot" (obviously) would overlook that. Again, he serves to illustrate a major theme of this site by essentially saying "Free speech and democracy are good. I can do and say whatever I want - though I have nothing of importance or intelligence to say. Quantity over quality. The individual ego over the survival of the group. All representative of a system that thrives on, and profits from, lack of consensus among a ignorant and purposefully uneducated mass, and exists only to perpetuate itself and nothing more. "Dave" proves this over and over with his system-given "rights" as a shield for his own lack of understanding. Just a cog in the machine. One that offers no alternate ideas, no solutions, addresses the symptoms and not the disease, and most illuminating, cannot even answer a simple question about the flaws in the very foundations of his arguments (opinions). Nothing. There is a point "Dave", the human race need REAL solutions for it's problems,and more fools screaming over each other as the sky darkens overhead does not fall into this category..."Do you really want someone else to decide?" No. I sure as fuck wouldn't ask because you. You wouldn't answer anyway. Free speech (if such a thing really exists) drowns out those who have actual ideas. Graveland - 26-05-’11 22:08
