    Searching for Mcluhan brought up this old thread. Could easily blend in here.

    and this can happen with people who i have hardlyv ever spoken to, i can construct images of what they are like without knowing anything about them, maybe not even their gender. it's very strange.
    music. music for this feeling plz.

    what about when you're going through old forum posts from yonks back and you're oh shit, i was chatting a lot of shit this could be construed as crypto-racist. maybe marxist-atheism isn't such a good thing shiiiiit maybe i need the terror of hell to keep me moral and upright.

    my famous book, VEGETABLE EMPIRE, describes the waves of convergence and divergence, porosity and impermeability, 0 and 1, horizontal and vertical.
    https://archive.org/details/vegemp (audio book version)

    you can see it at work in scenes, where eventually different tendencies formalise themselves and split off, you can see it with protestant church splitting from Rome and then fracturing into a thousand pieces, you can see it with politics (peoples front of judea etc)

    imagine a repeat of the acid house summer of love with stabbing gangs standing in for football hooligans. love ya mate yeah love ya mate. )))))))(((((((

    t.s eliot's The Wasteland is divergence and separation. "I can connect nothing with nothing."

    Vegetable Empire is the cure. (rustic rites of regeneration) the reentry of magic into the circuit. everything connects. and history starts moving again.

    so that settles it. we are moving into a new era, inaugurated by vegetable empire. lucky me, what a great honour.

    there is only One Writer and he sits plumply outside-of-time

    Burlybrook of Curlycrook, Varnisher of Fable, Foremost of Fabulists, most Famed among Fantasists,
    Fount and Font of Fond Fancy, proud Prince of Fictons, most Feted and Fecund embellisher of retold tales,First favoured son of Thoth, Mythmender, dreamweaver, Darling of Time, Most Musical of verse vendors, very vaunted ventriloquist of Insoul, Onesoul, Mysoul and Oursoul

    Amen.

    The word paranoia popped into my head reading your post and the first thing that came to mind was k&d.



    Some of the lyrics are cheese but the vibe be right

    Surprised to see Kruder & Dorfmeister being repped on Dissensus, but I have a nostalgic soft spot for that album that doesn't extend to any other trip-hop save the eternally controversial (in aesthetic terms) Tricky. On one level it's indefensible, but I still like it, and isn't that one of the joys of life.
