if you mean the stuff about aftershave then mark rae said it to vice magazine. if you mean "lots of celebs are insecure and entirely transactional" then i dunno.//Who said that?
I used to watch the naked social climbing going on, and it was the source of my disgusted fascination with Media Twitter. The fundamental thing that you need to understand about media Twitter is that it is a somewhat grosser, more explicit version of what media socializing is in real life: an endless, white-knuckled effort in pure careerism and influence trading. You ever see someone in the media announce that they're changing jobs on Twitter? It is the weirdest fucking thing I've ever seen. I guess I understand the need to announce your career changes, but why do people always respond with absurd hyperbole on Twitter? "You are the greatest and best person in the world!" You don't have their email address? You can't text your congratulations? If you aren't close enough to the person to do that, why are you congratulating them at all? And don't even get me started on launching an independent tweet of your own (being sure to tag them, of course). DM them with your sincere happiness for them! I guarantee it'll mean more. Do people who work at Geico do this shit?
REBECCA: I'd like to announce that I'm transferring to the motorcycle division.
JENNIFER: (standing up, loudly) REBECCA IS THE MOST AMAZING HUMAN I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. OUR LOSS IS THE MOTORCYCLE DIVISION'S GAIN.
It's a culture that's full of bizarre rituals that only make sense if you understand that none of it is sincere, that all of it is motivated by the desire for social and professional gain.
He says:CS Lewis was famously part of the Inklings group of course, probably the Oxford Social Mafia of its day. I wonder if that was the ring he had in mind - probably pissed off cos Tolkien was lord.
Could be cope, could be trueAnd if in your spare time you consort simply with the people you like, you will again find that you have come unawares to a real inside: that you are indeed snug and safe at the centre of something which, seen from without, would look exactly like an Inner Ring. But the difference is that the secrecy is accidental, and its exclusiveness a by-product, and no one was led thither by the lure of the esoteric: for it is only four or five people who like one another meeting to do things that they like. This is friendship. Aristotle placed it among the virtues. It causes perhaps half of all the happiness in the world, and no Inner Ring can ever have it.
i sort of like that sub because i'm drawn to internet communities that aren't totally homogeneous, that have disparate demos living together in a chaotic manner. parts of 4chan used to be like that. the main groups on r/redscarepod, as far as i can tell, are:I'm going to be posting interesting things that you guys post on r/redscare pod. Just wanted the zoo animals to know their being observed.
