Ah, you know the history of that piece don’t you? When Stravinsky premiered it, the music and accompanying ballet were considered so incendiary that it caused the audience to begin fighting amongst themselves and eventually start to riot in the streets. Imagine the power this piece of music must have once had that it could turn a bunch of rich white stiffs out for a night at the ballet into a fucking mosh pit.

No one likes being talked down to, asshole. If you actually give a fuck about getting people to believe what you’re saying, don’t talk down to them.

‘Useful’ is an interesting word choice, my man. Even as someone who has come to sympathize with cultural criticism, I can’t help but wonder if it’s really doing any real good. I feel like sometimes critique is like antibiotics: Sometimes it effectively eradicates a terrible illness and sometimes it creates drug resistant super bugs that will end up killing us all one day. I’m afraid that all critique will end up doing will be to create unapologetic monsters who don’t even uphold the pretense of reasonability and morality.

The last one is the most interesting though, that’s for sure.

Sure, take your time. If it’s not a bother though, do you think you could send me those writing books you were talking about? If you have to dig them up then don’t worry about it, but if you’ve got them to hand, I’d really appreciate getting them.

So…why didn’t they pull this shit when Putin was using the 2014 Olympics as a proxy to transfer millions upon millions of rubles to his criminal friends? Is it because they were afraid that Putin might just, you know, find them and send people to murder them?

Commented on Slender Man

I suppose that’s possible. Of course if they were stupid enough to believe that would actually work, surely they could be stupid enough to actually establish some slender death cult, wouldn’t you say?

Personally, I find it very strange how negatively people are reacting to even my suggestion that the Slender mythology could have had some influence. The people who made and propagated Slender are obviously not morally responsible for this, but I don’t think it’s a stretch to say there was a causal link, and we should be willing to examine that link and be aware of it. Just writing these girls off as completely crazy and trying to extricate Slender and ourselves from ANY kind of responsibility is cowardly.

Commented on Slender Man

People are saying the stabbing isn’t Slender’s fault, but I think it kinda is. Human beings are a bunch of psychotic apes with a tendency towards foolhardy credulity and horrible violence. The horror genre takes advantage of both of these traits by making us believe in fantastic things that can do horrible violence, and in 99.999% of all cases it just results in harmless fun, but it should be noted that it’s still fun based on playing with something ugly. Any good horror is predicated on arousing the savage part of our nature and inviting it out to play, and sometimes that savage might just take up the invitation.
