"from a formalist perspective…"
I am the star that mirrors itself in you.
Your soul is my home. I have no other."
— Pär Lagerkvist, Aftonland (via under-the-volcano)
Uptown, 1974, Chicago. Bob Rehak
"Yes, it could be that no new form of social organization will solve the problem of desire, the gap between desire and its object, the irreducible constitutive gap—but we can make some observations about how desire is put to work right now, about the surplus suffering, the surplus enjoyment presently extracted from desire. In personifying desire without assimilating it (“My boyfriends tell me I’m sexy but not sexual”—Paris Hilton), the Hot Babe heroically attempts to reconcile the imageless and unimaginable future with the desire for futurity.”
everything you’ve ever known and believed in is wrong. everything you think you want in life is an illusion. sex isn’t even real and you’re not even following this blog because the internet isn’t real either
