    Miracles. That's what is beyond soul. That's the next big thing. The return of miracles. Quite looking forward to it now I put it like that.

    I'm not sure, but I get the appeal on a gut level. I like the way Ballard describes cars, the way something like Hockney's A Bigger Splash looks, clean surfaces, chrome, the way the water looks in GTA.

    Thirds conception of revolution is at this point indistinguishable from this notion of miracle.

    Yeah. It's seductive but repellent all at once. Old reptilian sex energies.

    Correct. this is why I never enjoy waking up. not because I want to believe in it, but people have been so conditioned (even the religious) to disbelieve in the concept of miracle outside their cultured box. So I just look stupid trying to explain it which makes me depressed.

    I mean I'm only really atheist in a practical sense not ideologically or rationally (whatever that is supposed to mean.)

    Something I've felt guilty about in the past is envying the lifestyle depicted in Bret Easton Ellis novels. I dunno what it is about it, but there's something about that completely flat, affectless existence that appeals to some part of me.

    That being said, whenever I've encountered it in real life, I've hated it. The people, the parties, the whole thing, it's awful. You can just feel the life draining out of you the longer you spend around it.

    I just feel dissociated from both extremes. the kind of prole life that music crits fetishise and the brett easton ellis lifestyle. I can't relate to any of it. can't relate to university of Leeds wilfred's love for Migos in 2019 either.

    Being locked up in hospital under the mental health act does things to you. not in a tortured sense, it's like the world is never the same again.

    I can't relate to the actual thing, just when it's in my head and I'm inside that Hockney painting, with cars that look like they're made out of a single sheet of metal and I actually enjoy cocaine.

    People have too many daddy issues. Myself included. we aren't getting angry. we've all been conditioned to jennuflect. the difference is I utterly hate it and make my displeasure known even if i can't avoid capitulating. and thus my hypocrisy alienates people.

    But other people dress it up in woke gloss.

    Blue Cantrell was a deconstruction of this homeliness. but noone really followed it. When you listen to Aliyya it's like she's telling u to come chill out with her. I don't chill out anymore. noone chills out. chill out is dead.

    This is appealing to me, and I don't know why.

    It's why I like ambient that comes from a crator or ambient that is Neptunian and cold.

    This isn't true. A girl I met here was telling me about a classic samba song talking about how in every samba there needs to be a drop of sadness. They're sentimental people who prioritise positivity. It's woven in. They know how to have a good time. But cmon, the landscape is fucked. They just made the choice to enjoy in the face of it. That's soul.

    Gonna try and get some stuff together in the next few days. Flamenco is rooted in Arabic music which is of course some of the most melancholic/melodramatic music ever. Not that you didn't know already.

    Sorry, this is essentialising as fuck lol. like i said, ignorance and maybe some internalised prejudices. fucking wicked rhythms though.
    They're definitely behind. But I don't think that's a bad thing. Progress is bullshit at this point imo. That's a mudd quote.
