while I spend the next few days polishing off my latest psychotic diatribe, I thought I’d continue my civic duty as facilitator of usefull infomation. I will carry the attractor at the end of time on my bleeding shoulders if need be!
I’ve mentioned a couple times my admiration for webster tarpley. I don’t think anyone is really able to put the crypto-oligarchy in it’s proper historical context the way he does. So I’m obviously pleased to see he’s doing a weekly radio show here, where he holds forth on the onging unraveling of our civilisation. The first hour of every show is essentially a lecture by him. Good stuff. you can take or leave the rest. fast forward through the excessive tinfoil hat right wing conspiracy commercials.
Speaking of right wing lunacy, I’ve recently become aquainted with the thoughts of lyndon larouche. In spite of all the hysterical accusations of anti semitism, demagougery, and spooky fascistic leanings, I’m shocked to find him at least as coherent, perhaps even moreso, than any politician I’ve encountered from the last century. I think it’s telling how thoroughly he’s been consigned to the ghetto of unnacceptable discourse. I imagine one of these three hour sessions is enough for anyone. it’s damn funny to watch this guy. I almost pissed myself after i realised he uses names like ‘felix rohatyn’ like swear words. I don’t even know who this felix guy is, and it’s still hilarious. he’s like your cranky uncle whose solution to everything is to get the shotgun and chase people off his porch.
and for the uncle terrence fans, there’s always more loose ends: I’ve made it a project to track down anything he’s done, so if anyone happens to turn some new nugget that hasn’t found it’s way into one of the usual repositories, by all means do the world a favour and speak up!
I’m a big believer in open source education so by all means avail yourself of the wealth of material at MIT online. they’re well on their way to making all thier course material entirely free within a few years. even if you just listen to all the free audio and video lectures, you’ll be a smart motherfucker. like that guy brad in pulp fiction. right before sam jackson and travolta shot him.
and in the interest of undercutting any shocking revelation in my timeline project before i get there, hook yourself up with some mark pesce lectures. here and here. he’s becoming a worthy succesor to king terrence, provided he outgrows his obsession with webcrack.
and last but certainly not least i’m pleased to see this disinfo conferrence from a few years back is available for free online. Doug rushkoff does his post-post everything routine, kenneth anger debases himself shilling stop smoking tapes ( i shit you not ) and talks crowley, and pay particular mind to an impassioned speech by grant morrison as he lays out his post-invisibles cultural manifesto on pop magick, identity complexes and alien abduction. great fun and worth seeing if only to witness the ur-text of the modern chaos magick cult that finds it’s manifestation in and around key23, ultraculture, the barbelith underground, and generation hex etc. they’ll deny it of course…
now away with you!
