New blog post: Neurodivergence, Queerness, Anarchy!

“In the clear, critical light of day, illusory administrators whisper of our need for institutions, and all institutions are political, and all politics is correctional, so it seems we need correctional institutions in the common, settling it, correcting us. But we won’t stand corrected. Moreover, incorrect as we are there’s nothing wrong with us. We don’t want to be correct and we won’t be corrected.”

For anyone interested in this compilation: its an ongoing process of pieces on the intersections between neurodivergence, queerness and anarchy.

Id like to make the ideas presented in these pieces more palatable and accessible, and this is informed by my own experience as a neurodivergent, queer, anarchist.

They are on my blog presently, so that others can engage with them and formulate their own opinions. However they are still developing, and they aren't the easiest to grasp onto. So until they can be taken at a more individual level, please do what you will with that.

Broke & Content (I think):

I quit my job last month, and have basically been laying flat on a boulder by the river everyday since. Ive been recording audio-logs (mostly nihilist texts) on my spare time, and have enjoyed the company of a few now & then. But there has been nothing more rejuvenating than the solitude of the river, and the occasional nudity its provided me. Im hopeless and broke as shit, but all I can think about is how food just tastes better when its purchased with EBT!

I wish a fine evening to cop killers everywhere.

I haven't read any of the so called "great anarchist" theoreticians, nor do I intend to. The more incapable I am of engaging with mainstream & popular anarchism the better.

@the_trash_dimension @PhilomenaThePlant Perhaps y'all would like these? If im not mistaken there zero budget & anarchist too!

Am feeling compelled to develop some super 8 of my past adventures! All my film has been catching dust in a shoe box for years now, but we'll see how its aged in due time🤞

"They were nothing of their own making, they were like living symbols of what had happened to them, living abstractions and witnesses of the absurdity of human institutions. They were not individuals like the old adventurers, they were the shadows of events with which they had nothing to do."

-Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism (Race and Bureaucracy)

Photographs & text of "The Bog People" | Corpse imagery, mentions of death 

Been reading something a little bit different than usual recently:

"There is a strange power in bog water which prevents decay. Bodies have been found which must have lain in bogs for more than a thousand years, but which, though admittedly somewhat shrunken and brown, are in other respects unchanged.

i. The Tollund Man:

An early spring day - 8 May 1950. Evening was gathering over Tollund Fen in Bjaeldskov Valley. Momentarily, the sun burst in, bright and yet subdued, through a gate in blue thunder-clouds in the west, bringing everything mysteriously to life. The evening stillness was only broken, now and again, by the grating love-call of the snipe. The dead man, too, deep down in the umber-brown peat, seemed to come alive. He lay on his damp bed as though asleep, resting on his side, the head inclined a little forward, arms and legs bent. His face wore a gentle expression - the eyes lightly closed, the lips softly pursed, as if in silent prayer. It was as though the dead man's soul had for a moment returned from another world, through the gate in the western sky. The dead man who lay there was 2,000 years old.

The air of gentle tranquillity about the man was shattered when a small lump of peat was removed from beside his head. This disclosed a rope, made of two leather thongs twisted together, which encircled the neck in a noose drawn tight into the throat and then coiled like a snake over the shoulder and down across the back. After this discovery the wrinkled forehead and set mouth seemed to take on a look of affliction.

The soft surface of the bog made it impossible to bring a crane up to the spot, and everything had to be done by hand. This was not accomplished without loss. One of the helpers overstrained himself and collapsed with a heart attack. The bog claimed a life for a life; or, as some may prefer to think, the old gods took a modern man in place of the man from the past."

PDF wishlist! 

Hello! Are there any older or semi-older anarchist books (texts preferably already online as a PDF) that you would like to see added to the library? Let us know and maybe we can help or point ppl in the right direction towards getting it uploaded to the library. A thread 🧵...

Watched "El Topo" for the first time and all I'm gonna say is that junt went nuts... Here are some of my favorite stills:

Reintroduction: 

Hey friends, I'm back on mastodon after a much needed phone detox! I see there are a number of new users on the instance, so I figured I'd write a new intro:

I started out my mastodon experience with Kolektiva during a sex-worker boycott on proprietary social media sometime last year, but was quickly charmed by the individualistic interactions I saw occurring on the ni.hil.ist instance and thankfully switched.

Since the beginning of the pandemic and the end of the George Floyd uprising, my ideas have shifted pretty drastically from the Neo-zapatismo & Xicanisma that largely informed who I am, towards the Anarchy & Annihilation of my own creation.

My interests currently include reading and writing both in literature and music, and recently I've been decomposing, practicing, and meditating on pieces that revolve around a sort of musical nihility (for lack of better words). You can find some of my readings and writings on my blog if you please:

policy thinking is a kind of power fantasy where you get to think of yourself as the legislator with the most profound, wise, and just policy preferences. but these hypothetical preferences are meaningless and obscure and misdirect from the real life choices that are actually available. individual choices and action are ironically dismissed with "unrealistic" or "unimportant" or "not everyone can do X" which misses how life is built from the bottom-up through millions of acts of participation, refusal, and evasion.

accepting that you are a nobody, with no stake or allegiance to this society or its proxies, to live an authentic life of your choosing, however "unimportant", "unrealistic", or context-specific

“It’s not a problem of getting people to express themselves but of providing little gaps of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Repressive forces don’t stop people from expressing themselves but rather force them to express themselves. What a relief to have nothing to say, the right to say nothing, because only then is there a chance of framing the rare, and ever rarer, thing that might be worth saying.”

- Gilles Deleuze
