    Default method acting/role play supercedes irony as cultural strategy

    This is the wave of the present and has been for years now

    It's recognition that withholding belief means no results. No sacrifice no reward

    I think that's what these guys are all about:

    A sort of oscillation between the desire to believe and the inability to.

    think this dude may also be talking about what Luka is talking about, albeit from a different angle - what the dude calls Performatism

    http://www.artmargins.com/index.php/...ture-in-berlin

    (ignore the stuff about architecture which is the second part of the essay, the first bit riffs off of then-recent movies) (he wrote a whole book about Performatism which i have not read) (as far as i can tell he's received many critiques and not much in the way of agreement)

    but perhaps Luka could elaborate on the shift he's detected, the specific cultural
    things that have led him to that conclusion - you dropped this thought-bomb in music, so how is it playing out in music?

    (Metamodernism seems a bit like trying to have your cake and eat it -- not unlearn the lessons of postmodernism but shed all the enfeebling side effects and get back all the good things it put out of reach like belief, earnestness, passion, conviction, commitment etc)

    the one thing you fear, as a method actor, is someone digging into your past. before the character had been concieved. before you found the escape hatch. people digging into your past are trying to drag you back to earth, they dont want anyone to escape. again riff raff is good test case his interview with ebro....

    its like a city is always in the process of being torn down and rebuilt. go away for a few years and when you come back its confusing. you feel like you still know the place but youre getting lost all the time

    In Xanadu and Ganymede, fashion has become fancy dress. Walk through the trendier parts of town and you will find yourself sharing the streets with pirates and conquistadors, samurai, Comanche chiefs, characters from the Chinese opera, men in enormous Micronesian masks and grass skirts, geishas, maharajahs, sultans and mandarins.

    These characters scorn the factory made garments the masses wear and pay huge prices for tailors to make each unique item.

    This trend has given rise to a curious condition. Still extremely rare though everyone on the scene seems to know of cases. Costumes have been taking over their wearers personalities, like the boy dressed as an Inuit shaman who had dreams of being dismembered and put together again, but changed, with something new added to his makeup. Starting speaking in the language of the birds and prophesying, communing with spirits and dancing wildly in the parks, till one day he just disappeared. Or the notorious idler, a self-described artist who adopted the dress of a successful executive until he found himself on the board, 3 years later, not sure how it all happened, a trophy wife whose name he can barely remember sleeping beside him.
