    Hey thanks for all these replies, makes a little more sense.
    I guess it sounds, on a skim read, like a lot of postmodern theory (i studied a bit a long time ago) in that its cogent analysis but theres nowhere to go from it.
    So trump being more and more extreme, but bizarrely gaining in popularity? Or coversely, "left" leaning ppl complaining abt him and t he upswing in right politics, but continuing with insular, affluent lifestyles?
    Maybe thats something else actually.

    @johneden yeah thats the one. I love how they renamed new york and also themselves. Remade the city. Its a great read after wsb naked lunch just before.

    I'll try track down that d-g for scallies. Is anyone gna go to these seminars?

    There was a major turn. The K-Punk lot got into Badiou and Zizek and that kind of "politics".
    Lol at the inverted commas! Classic craner.

    @Catalog - is the 5%ers book the Michael Muhammad Knight one?
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Five-Percen.../dp/1851686150

    (Cos I read that earlier this year and liked it)
    In which edition of Break/Flow (Datacide?) can I find that article? https://datacide-magazine.com/magazine/

    It was in Slater's own zine which was called "Break/Flow" back in the 90s - I think the 2nd issue. This was pre-Datacide.

    I'll try and sort out a scan though.

    i did read this but it's still pretty confusing. the one thing that did chime was the nugget about how capitalism requires you to concentrate yourself into one thing, "identity" as something of a prison. And so it's important to break out of that all the time. Might read the original D&G if I suddenly find myself on a three month holiday with no technology.

    The modern mentality was caught with clear-eyed precision by the late British cultural theorist Mark Fisher... The online leftish culture, Fisher said, is driven by a “priest’s desire to excommunicate, an academic-pedant’s desire to be the first to be seen to spot a mistake and a hipster’s desire to be one of the in-crowd”.

    I'm posting this just because of the quote, no need to get grumpy about the article as a whole.

    Mark Fisher got me a copy of A Thousand Plateaus and I sold it almost immediately, partly out of spite, partly out of frustration. I bought it again and I haven't read it much but I do, and the chapter that sticks with me, that I'm reading again now, is the BwO chapter. You can botch it. But you can also reassemble it, or at the very least, can make modifications, and sea test it, and botch it again, probably, and burn it to the ground, again
