    Early 90's Rap City Classics

    I'm sure you were all watching Rap City in the early 90's, so maybe you can help me out. I have a theory that it will be impossible to feel nostalgia for anything 90's and (especially) beyond, and I'm trying to fight it and need your help. I will not let nostalgia die! Here are some personal...

    Who Will Be the Subject of the next Biopic?

    I correctly predicted Hollywood's next attempt at an "inspiring" or "aspirational" biopic would be about Elton John, and even correctly guessed it would be called "Rocketman." I wish I had proof of this but you will have to take my word for it. My guess: Prince. Title: "My Name is Prince."...

    EDM versus Disco

    Give me Disco. At least they knew how to play goddamn instruments. Club music is club music. Disposable, a product of its time and social scene. Stripped of its 'newness' and its social context it barely qualifies as music. Purely functional, and purely intended to keep the cattle dumb, wasted...

    Lefties: Who Excites or Inspires You?

    It feels like liberals (at least in the US) are in this undead state. All the life, energy, youth, and new ideas have drained out of them, maybe wasted on moral outrages over transgender bathroom rights and other unsubstative clickbait "issues." Everyone freaking out over Donald Sterling's...

    Billie Eilish

    Someone had to do it, so it might as well be me. What does Dissensus think of Billie? I'm dying to know. Personally, I hope she's a sign of a post-millennial paradigm shift in pop music from breezy sentimentality and pseudo-sincerity to perverse horror-psychedelia hypno-pop. I hope this...

    Listening to A Clockwork Orange

    on audiobook, read by Tom Hollander, is a fucking religious experience. I mean, when I trip on Lysergic now I think in NADSAT. And women love it, just drives them bonkers. I can't say enough. I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but for the, you know, unconverted, you can experience it...

    Iq

    how do people feel about the IQ test as a measure of intelligence? I have some fundamental problems with it, especially the tests that rely heavily on word scrambles and other question types that seem to involve a degree of luck. As far as I'm concerned, there is no way to measure intelligence...

    Twitter

    does anyone else use twitter? i think it's going to revolution sex, politics, media, and everything else. actually i don't think it will revolutionize anything, but it's a great way to find drugs in your city, or type stupid drug-addled shit online you won't want to remember when you read it...

    Tai Djin

    "Tai Djin was born in China in 1849. He was born unique, afflicted with hypertrichosis. Unlike Jo-Jo, who would be born a few decades later, Tai Djin was born into a highly superstitious family. As A result they saw his affliction as the work of demons and he was left in the forest to die. A...

    CFP's

    Anyone know of a blog or website that provides updates with new Calls for Papers, conferences, etc.? Ideally in the areas of literature, film, or new media, with a strong slant toward continental theory citations. It seems like I'm always late to the party, so to speak.The Continental Philosophy...

    Anti Global Warming Tech?

    Let's say global warming reaches a point where it is irreversible (this may already be the case). Is anyone working on technologies to reverse its effects? I don't mean preventive "Green" tech like hybrid cars or solar cells, I mean something more along the lines of terraforming, changing the...
