It's all the same language. The language of semen retention. Everyone sounds like Jack D. Ripper.

When it’s put like that it seems mystical, the muse, the collaborator! And it can feel magical. But it’s also to do with getting to a point where the story or the idea gets to a stage in development where it has its own gravitational pull because it’s so common, because the story has been told before, because it’s mythical or because we’ve been captivated by the story in another form and we know how it goes, and not fully consciously ... so we begin to feel an attraction to a formula, A seduction by certain tensions or resolutions or conclusions. Also about getting to the point where you can become a viable reader of what you’ve written, does this work on me? Where am I thrilled and where am I bored?
I think it is a conversation between I and not I, basically.
 
I liked the phrase ‘producing fruitful misinterpretations’ in that group chat on mark fisher. Some of the kpunk blogs and others around it at that time had the feeling of walking into an important conversation between smart people in full flow. There’s assumed knowledge to set you off after certain references but not too much, the right balance of populist and esoteric, you get the feeling of being invited in on something,or maybe trespassing a bit. Also not covering its back and tracks too much, reaching a bit, productive, potentialising, forward momentum writing that encourages further curiosity

Semen retention.
Another point for the would-be avant-garde and incel overlap, no? A culture that has managed to stitch into its dogma involuntary celibacy? Man, hopefully we'll live long enough for some future anthropologists to have a field day with the incel.

Full disclosure, as much as I can relate to them (minus any penchant for misogyny or terrorism), they still greatly frighten me - perhaps because of the portion of my potential-tree that leads me, or would have led me, down those roads. Related to my fear/reluctance of memes.

I can't say I have a troubled mind, as the end of the day. At least not at all compared to how troubled minds can get.

How can you "retain the semen" for long enough to establish a forceful enough current, without managing to damage the channels that house/guide it? Forceful enough for what? To express the cosmic?

The mechanism is the same. It's not a metaphor exactly. It's a homology. It's libidinal energy etc. It's the Exquisite Science.

Version is weird. Some days he's got a great sense of humour other days it's the worst on the whole internet. He's got a few different personalities trapped in there

Dear Charles Olson,

When aren't you an interesting writer? What does it feel like, how can you tell, when everything's coming out pat, falling flat, chasing its own tail, puffing itself up, tying itself in knots? Do you always know at the time, or is it sometimes only visible in retrospect?
