The Brilliant - Episode 101: Season 5 with Bellamy

From The Brilliant

Since Bellamy was here at the start of The Brilliant project it is great to check in where he is at regarding the things we are talking and thinking about. Obviously Bellamy and I have been having similar experiences in the Anarchist Space over the past few years. This episode is about some dissimilar experiences and what is next with each of us and our respective media projects.

the comments go beyond 'bellamy uses too many big words!!1' this time...

At least he does use that word Weltanschauung, so cut the dude some slack and read a book occasionally.

After listening to this shit for a few episodes - there's just so much soap opera between all you people with Hobbyist level academics/polemics.

You people are never getting anything done (Except podcasts/zines). You have no idea how to function through alliances, cooperation, negotiation or aggregates.

There's just so much beautiful soul syndrome / Grey Goo Vampirism in this shit hole scene.

It's good you have a little rat hole to play around in but the overall project of this scene of "anarchy" just seems so rotted out and obsessed with policing perfect positions.

Aragorn just needs to cut his hair, change his semen-encrusted underpants, sweep up the stale Cheetos crumbs, mop up the spilled fart-bong water, stop worrying about what 'the scene' thinks about him and get back to work!

Schtick! I think that's the sound we'll hear when Aragorn and Bellamy finally tear off their semen-encrusted underpants!

You had a whole year's worth of weekly Anarchybang shows to call in and challenge these people with everything you have detailed in your whingefest of a post here. But you couldn't muster it. It must be miserable having all the answers but no capacity to convey them to anyone (other than through perennial ocd trolling on this site). Tell us about all the alliances and cooperation, negotiation, and these curious aggregates you are party to and/or are facilitating "DiaperEater".

shouldn't you be OUT IN THE STREETS GETTING SHIT DONE instead of commenting on here, comrade?

I can only see one person here trying to police what other people do with their time...

that is Bellamy and Aragorn! as they dance around each other sussing out what could be in between the lines. Yes, the paragon of knowledge is back having, apparently, took aim at Layla AbdelRahim, previously his 'academic' cross-hairs were on John Zerzan and Kevin Tucker. I don't quite know what Bellamy is searching for other than seeking to destroy the perspectives of other people whilst also squeezing as many technical words as possible! Oh yes, he also had a go at CrimethInc. Please add to list. Oh yes, he had a go at vegans too. What's also really fascinating is Bellamy tries to cover up his disquiet and disbelief that Aragorn! dare to criticise him...He couldn't let Aragorn! get away it. Very fragile is Bellamy under all those BIG words (verbiage is Aragorn's description lol) Of course, the attention both get in this thread will feed them for a while.

Face it, bro: you’re jealous of their rarified dialogue, their being more well-read, and their ability to carry on a conversation that’s long on time but short on content. There’s nothing “pseudo” about their intellectualism!

talking to someone for <1 hour is 'long on time' now? i guess if you're used to having conversations on snapchat then it does seem kinda long...

If you think this one hour is the first and only time they’ve chatted in a recorded format, then you haven’t been paying attention

chatting to someone for one hour a month is excessive then you must have a very wide but very shallow circle of friends

> attention seeking commenter accuses someone else of seeking attention

The Brilliant really should interview Warzone Distro. That way Aragorn! and friends can correct them on their nihilizm. It would have a huge audience.

every time warrzone minions make a sad marketing comment, to try and become relevant within the milieu, an oogle quits the life and donates their trust fund to the democratic party

ribbit ribbit!

aw is *The Brilliant* really afraid to interview some harmless oogly minions? what's the worst that can happen? you know that warzone is just gonna make themselves sound dumb trying to define nihilism lol

i enjoyed hearing the discussion around free speech from a couple of anarchists, I’m glad to hear at least some anarchists are defending some form of free speech.

Ja mein fraü... always good to see that some anarchists stand up for the Constitution. We need some fresh blood now that the Alex Jones crowd is getting crippled.

Well, like they say in the episode, the legality issue is easily sidestepped and free speech could also be said like something along the lines of listening or tolerating to people who say things you don’t like. The alex jones comment doesn’t make sense to me.
