Sifting through tumblr and beyond to find the best crap for you to look at. Here’s your feels:
Woof! Woof! I’m not a Happy Hünd. I broke down today, tears streaming down the folds and wrinkles of my jowls as I realized that the very institutions I sought to cripple and subvert with barely-disguised nonsense had enfolded me and my ideas into their fleshy mental prisons of servitude. Maybe best explained in Nicola Pitchford’s Tactical Readings: Feminist Postmodernism in the Novels of Kathy Acker and Angela Carter:
“Ten years ago it seemed possible to destroy language through language: to destroy language which normalizes and controls by cutting that language. Nonsense would attack the empire-making (empirical) empire of language, the prisons of meaning. But this nonsense, since it depended on sense, simply pointed back to the normalizing institutions . . . Thus, an attack on the institutions of prison via language would demand the use of language or languages which aren’t acceptable, which are forbidden.”
That’s why today’s Feel is this anti-anarchy patch. Bow wow woe.
