2012 was the end of a world. With the publication of our book, we now know it was the American world that ended, and is today just a hollow, rotten shell.
Here lie the shattered remains of America, laid away in thought for posterity. We are not sorry: Philosophy enters onto the scene and dissolves its own world. Truth is devastation.
[M2: Mumbling] "I'll be right back."
[Joe:] "Ok, buddy, you go sober up."
[Walking different directions, gun goes off]
[Joe:] "Oh my God! He killed himself! He killed himself!"
[Joe:] "Oh my God! You killed yerself, buddy."
[M2:] "Yeah, I'm dead, man."
[Joe:] "Oh my, oh yer dead."
[M2:] "Yeah, I'm dead, man."
[Joe:] "That is awefull."
[M2:] "There's a big white light and everything, man."
[Joe:] "Yeah! Well you showed us all, man."
[M2:] "Oh man, I'm so peaceful here man."
[Joe:] "Yeah, you see anything weird, or.."
[M2:] "My relatives, man, a big white light, and my grandfather's there and.."
[Joe:] "Ooooh, I remember him, he's a good guy."
[M2:] "He's still wearing the same clothes, and.."
[Joe:] "Hey, say hello fer me, huh?"
[M2:] "Hey man, Joe says hi, man."
[Joe: Chuckling] "Right."
[M2:] "It's yeah..My uncle's here and..."
[Joe:] "Right..right.. Hey I got some news for ya. This is so funny."
[M2:] "Yeah? What, man?"
[Joe:] "Yeah, yeah, before you go, up to heaven.
The gun, you killed yerself with, that's the one I sold you, right?"
[Joe:] "Yeah, well that was a cap gun.
So, there's no way you could have killed yourself."
[Joe:] "Yeah, that's right, ok.. I'm going back to the party. Ok, take care."
[M2: Whimpering and crying] "I'm moving to a different town man."
Oh good, another embarrassing American Tiqqun imitation. It's been...days...since the last one was published. And the last one before that. How timely.
really days? It's by far the best imitation yet. Read it and then talk shit, you wanker.
its actually really bad. neither eloquent nor insightful.
According to one person on the internet. cool.
"by far the best imitation yet"
uhhhhhhh, thats a good thing?
It's a good thing because it's not a mere imitation actually. What is uses is the analysis of Tiqqun, instead of merely the language.
i really don't see the tiqqun comparison, except maybe in the sense of someone reading bits of tiqqun, not understanding it all, and trying to imitate it stylistically. i'm also pretty strongly reminded of old crimethinc, fredy perlman, the old eco mystic stuff... they have a point, except for not going far enough with their nihilism: what the fuck is this fictitious "america" bullshit they keep talking about? why do they think occupy was of such significance other than as another sign of decay?

I really enjoyed the essay on the site.
thank god we have another piece that assumes the place of some abstract "indians" ostensibly without any contact w/ native folks
Well yeah, indians are just some metaphor for white people to articulate angst with, right?
the best metaphor!
