    i think hes pretty good at pastiching literary style. the book on battaille
    swoons and flutters and gasps and gnashes its teeth and flounces and mimes all these other histrionic poses just like a real literary
    frenchman would

    maybe Ive got a skewed perspective bc I read him quite slowly, but I remember the aesthetic being pretty consistent. what changed is his philosophy went even further out there and his politics followed suit.

    there's something about that by someone or other
    they say write in rimbauds, or nietzsches, or whoevers style, but
    swap out the ideas for other ideas and youve still got rimbaud or nietzsche
    but the opposite is never true.

    What a thread. Infuriating and illuminating in equal measure. Some people will still be shouting 'freeze peach' in the cattle cars.

    Not that I remember, although he had some followers here. But that was before he veered into far-right weirdness, I think.

    Not as far as I know.

    It's a hazard of fetishising philosophy above everything else (+ serotonin depletion as pointed out by thirdform).

    Praxis is supposed to be theory + practise, in an ever evolving dialectical relationship. If your practise IS theory it all becomes like when cows were being fed bits of cows. BSE of the soul.

    the problem with Land isn't whether he is a fascist or not, he pretty much is but that's irrelevant, the problem is that he's a conservative artist. a bad artist. like emerson lake and palmer or weather report. at least weather report have that good nugget non stop home.
