many doors yes?
Did any of us get anywhere near what you were talking about?
i'd say so! i don't know, i'm really not able to construct good justifications for my ideas right now without overintellectualizing (dear God lol :'( i can't do it) things. the list of albums by artists that i put in the main post should hopefully be a kind of reference point. i honestly think i misinterpreted echo's thread as well. artistic darkness? suffocating darkness in a good way?

i dunno about the xanax zone... isn't it just the weed zone??
I think Xanax zone sounds sinister and occult frightening weed sounds wholesome righteous natural mystic blowing in the air rice and peas and coleslaw

A lot of the music Barty posts gives me the willies. Something wrong sounding about it. Bad juju.

weed is the sacremement jah planted on earth to impart enlightenment. xanax was manufactured by the man to keep the population docile.

I really really like this but it gives me the serious heebie jeebies
i can imagine it being really upsetting if i was on drugs. all those fears coming in the back of your head about "what if this goes wrong" suddenly manifesting itself sonically.

Poetix wrote a book that I admit I haven't read but is about the political value of depression.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dominic-Fox-Cold-World-Aesthetics/dp/B009F72CMS

I think that's what it's about?

live well in the world one must be able to enjoy it: to love, Freud says, and work. Dejection is the state of being in which such enjoyment is no longer possible. There is an aesthetic dimension to dejection, in which the world appears in a new light. In this book, the dark serenity of dejection is examined through a study of the poetry of Hopkins and Coleridge, and the music of "depressive" black metal artists such as Burzum and Xasthur.

The author then develops a theory of "militant dysphoria" via an analysis of the writings of the Red Army Fraction’s activist-theoretician, Ulrike Meinhof. The book argues that the "cold world" of dejection is one in which new creative and political possibilities, as well as dangers, can arise. It is not enough to live well in the world: one must also be able to affirm that another world is possible.

the alphabet and standardised language are codes proliferated by the man to encode our thoughts. they're spells to trap and limit our cognitions.

slang is developed by counter cultures to try and recode our brain machines, but now a new generation of xanax terrorists have emerged waging an intellectual insurgency by dissolving language. phonetic viscosity.
