Brief outline of themes and topics as they were TWEETED in [sur]real time:
MoM NOW: Signing off. Thanks all. The recording from MoMday 25 will be posted at the MoM site for FREE download: mcluhanonmaui.com
MoM NOW: inventory: PANIC kids having a PANIC teenage-hood [these are themes and observations here at MoM25 MoM NOW: Derrida...purposeful lays out visual/acoustic dynamic of #McLuhan and reverses it [thing u had to do in the 90s as an intellectual]
MoM NOW: @buzzcoastin and his role.
MoM NOW: KROKER dancing on the toes of the PoMos (based on having done his 20yrs of homework). All poets must labor!
MoM NOW: The last page of War and Peace...(as far as MM went?), as intro to KROKER (also see MM's From Cliché to Archetype).
MoM NOW: The contextual differences between McLuhan and Kroker. By Kroker there is no time happening. McLuhan's age you could still see
MoM NOW: Music as ground and how society reflects music. Music rules in the quantum age. Punk, sampler, heavy metal economy etc...
@chipbody AK : In a fully tragic sense, McLuhan's final legacy was this: he was the playful perpetrator, and then victim, of a sign-crime.
MoM NOW: Mise en abyme and anamorphosis cf metaphors after the fractal.
MoM NOW: Today, analog media adopt the same/similar postures that "humans" did in the 60s & 70s.
mbytz RT @marsHAL9000 @chipbody AK : "McLuhan was then, in the end, trapped in the "figure" of his own making."
MoM NOW: services of human stubborn-ness vs viral positivity. Strategies people would adopt if they don't like being swallowed by virtuality
MoM NOW: McLuhan on the databanks (in 1970s)...so people would adopt amnesia as a counter-strategy/rebellion.
MoM NOW: Kroker's criticism of the NEW AGE, mantras and crystals. We're not new age...
MoM NOW: Kroker no longer applies [but is worth considering to get us from McLuhan to the PRESENT]
MoM NOW: KROKER is the poet of the @chipbody. New theme...cell phones and its effects on the Hollywood scene cf Kroker.
MoM NOW: KROKER as bi-modern vs paramodern.
MoM NOW: NOW from #McLuhan's Wake to KROKER...cynical seduction and televisual subjects. EXIT from Modernism to Pomo PRIMITIVES
MoM NOW:The man of the inner trip, & inner encounter..."life can only be understood backwards but it must be lived forwards"--Kierkegaard
MoM NOW: The e-politics of cyber-delic bohemia and what some of these figures did when they became aware of disservices of 90s scene
MoM NOW: Mondo 2000 Vs WIRED, R. U. Sirius and C-Theory...figures swept up by the utopian 90s.
MoM NOW: Kroker works FAST, took the fad word and built a manifesto around it...Now that's active living in the present (in trad. of MM)
MoM NOW: Comparing #McLuhan and #Kroker's discourse. Mondo 2000, Jaron Lanier (90s context). Popular memes of virtuality (fad word)
MoM NOW: Mumble Core (film), un-conscious knee jerk reactions to being documented from birth. Remixing and resampling new identities.
MoM NOW: THE camCorder kids, Kroker suggests, will go vague (in 90s). NOW these kids are in college. Denial of chemical body precision.
MoM NOW: digital re-ordering of false memory opens the door on camcorder as WAY of doing philosophy [these are themes at MoM25]
MoM NOW: cam corders role in the extermination of memory [erasure]...and what is the future for these cam corder kids?
MoM NOW: cam corder as viral weapon in the oedipal struggle!? editing and re-editing the family story of the disappeared excremental family
MoM NOW: Rodney King, the excremental family, surveillance of undocumented dimensions of the self and family ... and effects thereof
MoM NOW: ... Surveillance and crash (re phases of TV). The Cam-corder and cancer, what happens to the population under these conditions
MoM NOW: Kroker...and virtual space growing bodies. Kroker on the 90s TV landscape and excremental TV: sacrificial, disciplinary...
MoM NOW: The blatant transformation of the web...anyone could notice it. Watershed shift. Current theme... labor under digital conditions.
MoM NOW: @PaulLev should be at MoM25. : ) Good conversation on post-McLuhan criticism.
MoM NOW: Kroker is good for understanding the squared version of McLuhan's simulated vision. Still groping for a new language & new metaphors
MoM NOW: Question...explain the youth protests on WALL STREET now. [We will return to that]
MoM NOW: Kroker (post-McLuhan) on intellectual violence!
MoM NOW: Communication AS TRANSFORMATION. [sound intrusion...the mis-educated imagination of Marshall #McLuhan.
MoM NOW: #McLuhan in 1970s..."the goal is not to communicate" (just when everyone was propping up communication as solution).
MoM NOW: beyond the merely technological. And this is why #mediaecology has become acceptable. We are post-media
MoM NOW: Moving at warp speed into another geography of culture...of beyonding and recombinant cultures...
MoM NOW: p. 154 Kroker running through the phases..bring us to post-Baudrillard. The politics of post-sacrificial violence.
MoM NOW: Looped ears, partitioned hearing, accelerated ear-drums, digidesigned ears...the education of the cynical ear as education program
MoM NOW: A culture of quantum fluxuation ... where we are at now. EVERYTHING has disappeared. This is KROKERS starting point.
MoM NOW: Trying to preserve the order of the real? Kroker says we are beyond alienation and reification (cf Lucaks sp? & ruling concepts).
MoM NOW: phase (1) beyond simulation, the society of the wave-form. Genes (leaving"*us*) merging with data.
MoM NOW: [@youngblood bings in] Kroker's relationship to Baudrillard and criticism of. "We are beyond simulation..."
MoM NOW: The ground is a technical environment that has come alive. NOW the stages that Kroker lays out. P. 53 of Spasm.
MoM NOW: Virtuality and Mimesis. Kroker mimes the situation with PANIC WRITING. There is no outside virtuality. Ironic distancing/emersion
MoM NOW: Sign sliding, ambiguity and ambivalence...the mimetic dimension of Kroker's language to SHOW the bi-modern polarity
MoM NOW: DataTrash and Spasm...BoB pointing out the tactile interface between man and machine (cf. Kroker's (mis-) use of his own body terms
ime TWEETS from MoMday 25. Current theme is post-#McLuhan and Arthur Kroker.
Kroker describes what happens to everyone when they are online. MM does not address the "andriod meme." Kroker has the LANGUAGE
#MoMday 25 is underway.
