    The joker does seem absolutely emblematic of the 4chan mindset, chaos for the lols. Be very interesting to see how this is handled.

    fits in to ian dunt's notion of 'government by trolling' which you get with trump and with guido fawkes 'dream cabinet' and all that.

    Did you read the secret sun thing Danny? I think he's right here. You look at the evidence and it's clear they're working from the killing joke template, not a band I knew anything about before reading the essay. A lot of his stuff just reads like Apophenia run wild, even to me, but with this he's on solid ground.

    Rodman preempted the whole soundcloud rapper/harlequin thing.

    I've not read it all yet - started, but I had insomnia last night so am giving my brain a bit of a break.
    I found that interview I heard with him really affecting though. I might have it wrong, but it felt like an dispatch from the frontlines.

    Sorry, I meant the longer Grapejuice piece. I read the Secret Sun one but haven't watched the videos yet.

    something i wanted to post on the harlequin thread and forgot to was that in grant morrison's arkham asylum the joker's pathology is said to be some kind of cognitive evolution responding to urban environments. his personality was entirely malleable and as such was more adept at dealing with the rapid, ever-changing stimulation of city life.

    it's the same phenomenon that i pointed to on the harlequin thread with tommy lee sparta's persona shifts responding to social media's non-stop information stream.

    Interview with who? You linked to an interview with someone named Greg Carlwood? Is that the right one?

    he's popular culture's most post-truthy character really. in the comics i think that the editors don't even let him have a definitive back story.

    he's disinformation. a one-man russia today.
