T. Pynchon – Bleeding Edge

You can watch my stuff till you’re cross-eyed and there’ll never be any deeper meaning. I see something interesting, I shoot it is all. Future of film if you want to know—someday, more bandwidth, more video files up on the Internet, everybody’ll be shootin everything, way too much to look at, nothin will mean shit. Think of me as the prophet of that.

We got art. Now, what do we do?

It’s been same years since art began. Thousands even. Time flies by so fast. One day you have those awsome cave-wall paintings, next day someone writes about Ulysses who’s lost in Dublin. Also, every now and then there is someone talking about the end of art, claiming that nothing new is possible and that all our creative possibilties are exhausted.  Supposedly all is said and done we can go home. Right? Only, there are a few artists lingering on, lonely and jobless. Sitting hopelessly for our viewing instead of their art.

Thomas Pynchon as a hacker

(Here’s another entry from the other blog, originally posted 05/02/2012)

You know the Anonymous. A mysterious, yet quite popular, loose collective of hackers/activists. That are to be expected or so they say. Since Pynchon’s identity is in fact unknown and his person is unreachable consequently that makes him as anonymous as it gets. However important is the case of reclusiveness and trying to hide from everyone for decades, this is not the main argument here. The point is that he invented a model of  ‘Anonymous network’ before they could ever learn what Linux was.

What did Antonioni know about the Internet?

Imagine Michelangelo Antonioni tweeting on a Sunday afternoon. You can try but it’s not an easy task, probably because Antonioni didn’t know anything about the Internet. Not in the 60’s and the 70’s. So how could he say so much about the global net, back then, when no one could even dream of online shopping or sharing pictures? In fact, he did said a lot about it. You will realize that as long as you know where to look.

Hi

Yeah, it’s a bit late for a ‘hi’ post, whith few hundred followers (thank you very much!) and all. But I belive in looking for the new ways of expression all the time, so what I had not planned will actually happen form now on. It was supposed to be just easy and to be fun, of course though-provoking, but only little bits and pieces for you to grab inbetween other web pages. It will be more now. Nothing will disapear though, nothing will be taken out from this blog.  <read on -> )
