Twitter cuts (#1)

(This has been a UF (2.1) theme up to now, but what’s the point of schizophrenia without zig-zags?)

Celebrating this, with reference to this (to labor the obvious). In decayed modernity, mere technical competence is a political provocation. Any resources not devoted to the Cathedral agenda counts as a win.

    Good parody.

    I like Gil Scott Heron. I agree with his poem ‘Comment #1.’

    And if you mention his other poem ‘The Subject Was Faggots’ to his progressive white fans (ie, basically all of them), that’s a guaranteed recipe for fun.

    It’s interesting how much sadness (and actual drum-beating) there is in Gil Scott-Heron that there isn’t in any political black music nowadays.

    It’s as if back then they were pretty lost and sorely needed some free copies of Epictetus, particularly as there was no internet yet, to learn them some resilience.

    Now? Since black party music is the default pop product, the political variant merely has to say “I’m more pointed than the party boom boom boom”. No bother to express why what they’re saying matters at all, even if through sorrowful drumming.

    @Gil Not-Heron -is that the best that white people like you can do? Blame Afro-Americans (and other minorities living in the United States) for the space program’s troubles?

    The best people to blame are the (mostly) white neoconservative politicians ( this guy in particular) who waste billions of dollars on stupid and senseless wars-money that could have been better spent on the space program and reap great benefits for the United States and the rest of the planet. Instead, the United States spends billions on the military and stupid senseless wars, which progressive people like Barack Obama have to spend a lot of time fixing when they become POTUS.

    Blacks and other people of color didn’t stymie the United States’s space program; neoconservative dominionist whites like yourself did.
