24 05 11 - 11:57Postmodern 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 NÃºÃ±ez-FernÃ¡ndezâs 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, NÃºÃ±ez-FernÃ¡ndez 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 NÃºÃ±ez-FernÃ¡ndez 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 songâs shimmering instrumentation and NÃºÃ±ez-FernÃ¡ndezâs 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!
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?
