    What they really mean:The continuing expansion of capitalist command over the entirety of the social order means that exploitation and atomisation are the two dominative facets of my existence.

    'if you hate art so much, why do you keep doing it?' is a question i get asked a lot

    the answer is perhaps a stubborn refusal to admit defeat

    that to stop making art would be to give up land of enormous fertility,
    surrendering it to those who are content to profit from it remaining untilled

    that to stop making art would be to give up a space of alternatives that is controlled by capital A artists who prefer to let it be filled with neoliberalism painted as an unquestionable status quo from which there is a pittance to be mined - money, fame or, joy of joys, even just a white wall to show work on - but only with permission (isn’t art a space for dreaming? so why these paltry undernourished fantasies that simply reflect the values the ruling class has instilled upon you?)

    that to stop making art would be to hand over a tool to those would dismantle it and display it, ‘for aesthetic reasons’, broken and out of reach - rather than use it to fix things or as a weapon if need be

    before we enter the fight with that super heavyweight champion ‘capitalism’ we are first told (by a bribed referee) to blunt the edges, smooth the corners, water down the acid, pull out our teeth and claws, pad our knuckles and agree to no low blows - no wonder then we get beat every time by a vicious opponent who carries any weapon they wish and fights without morals

    watching artists willing debilitate themselves over and over again so they can create uncritical, consensus driven, populist and feel good art (that may achieve the greatest value that art can have under neoliberalism - it may SELL!) both fuels my contempt, breaks my heart and wills me to continue fighting
    (and have no doubts - we are at war)

    artists (‘A’rtists) seem happy with a most absurd and entirely delusional victory that amounts to a bloodied, bruised and beaten loser being pulled out of the ring but boasting ‘see how my face really fucked up his knuckles?!’

    the truth is really this: that being paid to take a dive means you never fought in the first place, nor had any intention of ever doing so

    i can’t explain how truly excited i am about this website

    i strongly urge you all to take some time to explore what has to be the single greatest piece of performance and visual art in our history 

    (also take the time to resize some of the text boxes on the site!)

    I have been a forward thinker all my life.
    I am an inventor with numerous inventions and patents. A former bushpilot and hypnotherapist, I am very resourceful and intuitive. While practicing hypnotherapy, I started to explore my psychic potential, and in an experiment in 1990, I predicted the fall of the Soviet Union. I have often been described as being ahead of my time. Around 1978 I told others about the Smart Car concept, and I was laughed at.  About 30 years ago I thought of mixing butter with margarine, and you can see such a product in Safeway now. Around 1975 when VCR’s were new, I had visions of videos of fires, to simulate a fireplace with a TV screen, and visions of people buying videos of atomic bomb explosions. Both came to be.  About 27 years ago McDonald’s mainstay was burgers and fries, and I predicted that they would eventually sell healthier food. About 20 years ago I thought of taking ordinary water, adding minerals, and carbonating it. Dasani water is just that, in stores now. And there’s more. Many of my ideas were ridiculed.
    Maybe I am not that amazing. But do you know anyone else like me?

    i just think it would be really nice if the makers of the amazing spiderman film series didn’t kill gwen stacy - that just maybe she could be something more than another woman in a fridge

    How many liberals does it take to change a light bulb?

    Look, I know we promised change during the election, but right now we have to be pragmatic.

    "In his Discourse on Colonialism (1951), Aimé Césaire wrote that Hitler slumbers within ‘the very distinguished, very humanistic and very Christian bourgeois of the Twentieth century,’ and yet the European bourgeois cannot forgive Hitler for ‘the fact that he applied to Europe the colonial practices that had previously been applied only to the Arabs of Algeria, the coolies of India and the Negroes of Africa.’"

    Mahmood Mamdani, from “Modernity and Violence” in Good Muslim, Bad Muslim  (via tzunuun)

    It bears repeating that the reason Hitler is a Western symbol for the darkest depth of all evil, is that he broke the pact of whiteness and did things within Europe that white people agree should only be done to non-Europeans in Africa, Asia, America. Genocide in those places is acceptable, even natural, to Europeans; but Hitler brought genocidal brutality to Europe, and for that he’s the epitome of evil.
